Writer's Corner

Starting soon, I'm going to be turning this blog into a place where I publish my writing, since I'll be graduating and in need of an outlet. If you don't want to read fiction/nonfiction/poetry, etc, you should probably stop following this blog :)

I can't promise it will all be good, or clean, or make sense, but I want to be accountable somewhere for writing every week. Until I find a more creative writing focused blog site, this is it.

Sound like a plan?

Summa summa summa

So, sorry I've been literally MIA forever... well, for the first month of summer at least.

Well, as to my life nowadays, I start my job on Monday again... woooooooo, wakin' up early, makin' that dough. Hopefully ole NASA will have more for me to do this time around than last summer so I don't have to resort to writing another novel. Which actually wouldn't be so bad. Let's just wait and see what God has in store for me.

Too bad Luke leaves tomorrow morning for Europe. :( Which is of course just too bad for me because he's going to freaking Europe (aka awesome)!!! I think his itinerary looks something like Netherlands, France, Netherlands, Croatia, then wherever the heck he wants to go in all of Europe for three weeks with his little bro. Pretty sick, huh? But he's going there for school for the first month, so it's not all just play... I'm helping him make a very important powerpoint presentation right now that he'll present in Croatia :) Human genocide and all that great stuff...

His mom keeps joking about all the nude European beaches he'll be able to visit while he's there. Sweet.

He just called me his little "blogger baby"... oh sigh =)

Tomorrow I think I'm getting a pedi with the madre and then chillin' for the rest of the weekend until I have to join the masses of employed citizens who don't sleep in until noon every day. Now that's a real sigh right there.

Anyway, I'll try to keep up more with my blog now that life is returning to somewhat normal after the scare with my dad... Promise.

Here's to safe travels for boyfriend tomorrow and fun work experiences at NASA soon to come...

Heart Attack

My poor dad had a massive heart attack Sunday. Thankfully, he is doing great now, but they literally had to revive him to keep him alive. Needless to say, scariest moment of my life thus far.

But let me just say, Parrish Medical is ridiculous. They called us last night around midnight to come in and take care of their patient because he was ripping out his IVs. Basically, I'm just really glad my dad's okay, but I'm pretty exhausted too. I think I've spent 10 hours a day at the hospital since Sunday.

All I have to say is, thank God this happened while I was home and free to help my mom, and thank God dad's okay.

Here's to getting to tell my dad happy birthday yesterday in person because he's still here with me to hear it... =)

I Can't Catch Up

Why the heck can't I just teach myself that going to bed is always the right thing to do? When in doubt, just sleep.

Anyways, life is good right now. Tomorrow morning I'm meeting a girl who is going to sign my sublease! Pretty sweet, considering how stressed out I've been about it. And my parents paid for the discount I offered. No big deal. ;-)

I just finished cleaning my room and reorganizing my schedule. I think I've decided to try taking Spanish while I'm at home this summer. A really awesome-looking American Pop Culture in Literature class just opened up, and the teacher has spectacular ratings... so I'm excited for that.

Unfortunately, the circus class doesn't look like it will be fitting into my life next semester. I'm still trying and hoping against all hope that something magical happens and I find a way to make it work. But I don't think so.

I think I'm going to join FSU's Swim Club next year... sounds like fun/good regular exercise.

I don't really have much else to say. I had sort of a mini-breakdown today, but I think I'm over that now. My mom deposited $200 extra into my account without telling Pop because she said I sounded stressed on the phone... which I did. Luke had to hear the full extent of my stress though...

I thought about going out tonight, but I think I needed some me time. I feel weird.

I don't know what to here's to tonight...

Oh, I know. I'm really sort of obsessed w/ Robert Pattinson lately so...

Here's to Robby P, one fine, fine man...

Do Do Do Do Do Do Do Do...

The circus was AMAZING!

We have a really kickass school. Seriously. We have a professional-standard circus!

And I'm really excited to try walking on next year to be a part of it someday. :)

My fav part: The flowery girls that did crazy acrobatics while swinging on ropes! So cool.

Hope everyone had as awesome of a weekend as me. Only 3 weeks left of school! Hang in there everyone!!

Here's to flying up, up, and away!

I Am Very Tired... In A Good Way

I am very sleepy tonight.

Relay last night was the start to my thus far exhausting weekend.

Then today I showed a girl my place for a potential sublease for the summer. Someone actually came to look!! And she seemed really interested, so I'm hoping she signs soon. :)

Then headed over to the Villa Del Lago pool party. And oh my goodness, were those people ready to party.

Oh, and one little tiny thing.

I met the man of my dreams.

He is Edward Cullen/Robert Pattinson. Like, seriously. If anyone reading this who lives in Tallahassee ever sees him, you will know. He is like a perfect look-a-like... not to mention drop-dead gorgeous.

So, then it's back home for some food/showering for a night out on the strip. And who else do I run into there but EDWARD CULLEN!?!?! *Le sigh* If anyone has read the book or seen the movie, though, they know how the story goes... Ed has a g/f. Tragic.

So, after cancer fundraising, soaking up some much-needed sun at the pool, and a ton of booty shaking fun, I'm like fall-over exhausted. How I'm writing this I really don't know. And tomorrow I have to work the Circus (which I'm actually really excited about since I've never been to our renowned circus and I get to watch!!!), so pray for me. I need to run to the mall too... and oh yeah, write a 6 page paper. That'd be a good idea...

Here's to sleep, sleep, and oh yeah, more sleep :)

Relay for Life

Relay for life was amazing. There are simply no other words to describe not only the awesome amounts of fun I had, but also the truly doing-my-part feeling I got while I was there. And I think I finally got some of the closure I needed during the beautiful luminary section of the night. RIP Jimmy. I love you very much, but you're still with me always.

Maybe I'll upload pictures later of Luke in drag reppin' the Lady Spirithunters! (What a brave boy.) Relay really was a ton of fun. Great food, great attitudes, great cause, new friends... very good life experience. Definitely plan on doing this again next year.

Help raise money to support the endless human search for a cure to cancer... Check!

Here's to anyone who has felt the effects of cancer in their lives, and especially to anyone who isn't afraid to help us all fight back against this terrible disease.
