Been a while, hasn't it? But I am here now, so... there you go. Here's a quick update on my life:
I am still alive. Quick, simple, a little obvious, but there really isn't much else going on that is that important. I'm taking 18 credit hours this semester and I am actually put a bit of effort into it, so I should make out with A's. Which I need to do to keep my honor's scholarship, which I need to keep to be able to afford school and, may I add, that I am spending less money going to school down here in Lynchburg than at community college. Nice.
I desperately want to go on a trip this year. I'd go anywhere, NY, London, Paris, even Chattanooga if I had to. Anywhere but Lynchburg or Grand Rapids. Been there, seen that. Give me somewhere new to explore. Somewhere besides sitting in my dorm room on my faded frog print sheets, listening to online radio, trying to ignore the horrible noises my roommate, a music major, is making thinking she is singing. It would be easy to just go and leave my room, be social and do stuff, but I have to study. Honor's and all that. I can't go somewhere else to study, my laptop, which has recently celebrated its four-year anniversary with me, weighs 12 lbs., add my numerous and heavy books and my backpack, if it doesn't burst from seam to seam, will quit as my backpack, join a union for oppressed backpacks, and lobby congress for better pay, better care plans, and weight limits. So, I'm kinda stuck here. At least I'm on the top bunk, which is abnormally high for a bunkbed, so I have my own little world up here. I am able to pretend like I'm ignoring other people, which is almost as good as actually ignoring them. Not that I like ignoring people, or that I make a habit of it, but I enjoy being alone, sometimes. And with a roommate like mine, you'd want to be alone, sometimes, too.
I promise I'll write another post before next year. In the meantime, laugh
a bit more.
