Right. So, I just reread this entire blog. And once again, I must say a lot has changed since I've last written in here. It's been an entire summer and a month since I've last updated, which naturally means I've got lots to write about. Although, I'm not sure I can really sum up all this time in one blog entry. In fact, I'm not sure I can really put any of it into adequate words. But, alas, I will try.
So, I suppose I will begin with graduation.
Uh. So. I, uh, graduated. That pretty much sums up that experience. Honestly, it wasn't exactly memorable. There really wasn't any of that bittersweetness because I met my classmates the day of my graduation. I wasn't at all sad at leaving highschool. I went through all those feelings the previous year. For me, graduation was just something I did for my mom. She wanted to see at elast one of her children participate in a high school graduation..So I did. The biggest problem came with the people I lived with. Lots of family drama over who all was going to come, who was going in which car, blah, blah. The only person I wanted to come..didn't. I didn't really mind so much because I didn't want to go myself, but it would have made it much more bearable had she been there, but what's done is done.
Let's move on to a more cheerful topic, eh? My youth pastor's wife took the girl seniors on a trip to Palm Springs. It was definitely an interesting trip. Palm Springs is a very interesting place full of very interesting people and interesting weather. Seriously. Hottest weather EVER. It was about 110 degress the entire time. The only thing I remember doing is going to nice restruants. So, again, not so memorable. But I'm still glad I went.
A few days before leaving on this senior trip, my mom and I moved into another house. I'm not so sure this was the best idea we ever had because we decided to move into the house of my uncle's wife's brother. So, still in the family. But we each had our own rooms and there was a pool, so it didn't turn out so bad, actually. Plus, we didn't see much of the guy we lived with. He had the entire upstairs of the house to himself, so we rarely saw him.
I feel weird writing this blog because I usually don't write so much about what's been going on so much as just write about what's going on in my head, but i feel like I need to update about what's been going on. Although, again, no one really reads this. So, I suppose I'm just writing this for myself. I need to write out and see what all has happened. Makes it seem like I've actually been busy. When, in reality, I haven't been busy at all.
Anyway, back to my story of..life. After moving in and spending most of my days in the pool, I started spending most of my days at church, helping with random church events. I became friends with lots of old people. Those were good days.
I then went to summer camp. That was..not as much fun as it could have been because two days into it and before I really got to do any of the activities I wanted to do, I sprained my ankle. How very typical of my silly, clumsy self. It swelled to almost three times it's normal size, turned many fun colors, and hurt SO BAD. I could really walk for a day or two. That was not so much fun. Espeically considering I had no crutches and walking up and down hills all the time kind of made it worse. But, at least, it was, you know, memorable. I will definitely not forget Summer Camp '09, for sure.
While I was at camp, I got a call from TeAndra saying she just bought plane tickets to come visit me in two weeks. (we'd been talking about doing this all summer. she finally decided to actually go through with it.) This made me verrrrry excited. I came home from camp and did nothing but relax and be lazy (prettymuch) until TeAndra came to visit.
Now, I should have been very excited when she came. But, for some reason, I was felt less excited and more obligated to entertain her. I just felt like we didn't have anything in common. We didn't just click like we used to. I suppose that's just a part of growing up, though. I'm glad we got to spend the time together and I don't have any regrets.
And now on to the exciting part. I moved into college and have now officially been here for a month. i am having the time of my life here and am incredibly glad I made the decision to come here. I know for a fact that this is the place I'm supposed to be. I've met some amazing people and I've learned so many things.
In fact, I think I've learned more in the past month here than I did in my fours years of highschool combined.
It feels so good to be here and I'm adjusting to this life better than I thought I would. I always knew that college would be the best years of my life, but I didn't know it would be so easy to adjust to it. I was insanely nervous the day I moved in, but my nerves quickly went away after spending the first night here and getting to know some of my fellow classmates.
I will try to update this blog as often as I can. (Hmm. I think we've heard this statement before..)
Also, I've started another blog, which will relate my journey to participating in Semester at Sea (www.girlbookaholic.blogspot.com)
And now, goodnight!
