So it's been a while.
Spent a week in merry land, and then a weekend in RI for the staff meeting. It was all mostly really great. Getting home sucked, though I'm pretty much over it and won't complain.
Made up with a friend today. That was great, too.
Didn't do a lot of homework that I needed to. Not so great, but did things that I needed to do for me, so it all sort of works out.
I'm wearing a fancy felt hat.
There's a ton to say, but what it all boils down to, really, is this list:
-overwhelming amounts of school work
-playing camp games during class
and last, but not least, the continuous search for truth and meaning in my life.

Will be home in a week with Brian and Kaitlin and Todd. Brian and Kaitlin and I are going to a Michael Franti and Spearhead show in Baltimore while Todd hangs out with some of his friends, and then all four of us are trucking it back to Myersville. I kind of can't wait. It'll be nice to be home and have time to relax. I'd like to take a couple of days to drive down to Salisbury to visit Laurel, but I'm not sure if I'll be able to.
Dunno if I should call Jeff or not. We haven't spoken in over a month, and I'm not sure why. It's hard for me to call people here; it's been really easy to get wrapped up in things. The only people I call on a regular basis are my parents and Tyler. And that's only once or twice a week. Meh. We'll see.
Birthday went well. I am now officially in the throes of emerging adulthood. Whatever that means.
Trying to decide what I'm going to do with my summer. Maybe Norway, maybe a day camp with Brian and Kaitlin, maybe Kenzie's again.
There are only 46 or so days of school left. Nutso.
Life is good :)

My birthday is in two weeks from tomorrow and last night I learned to play the saw.

Jason Bishop added me as a friend on MySpace. I almost had a heart attack. I haven't ever cried so hard in my entire life, except maybe the day I found out that he wasn't going to come home after he left.
He's alive and doing well, and I coudln't be happier than I am in this moment.

Finally finished putting up all of the various things I like having on my walls. There wasn't room for everything I brought, but I've got most of the best stuff up there, and now I'm happy with the way my walls look.
I re-read the artcles about Mr. Schofield in the RT Magazine (Middletown High's newspaper) from November 2004. Every now and then I remember how amazing he was, and get a little sad, but also get really happy. I was really lucky to have gotten to know him.
I've been talking to my father a lot more, via e-mail and letters, mostly, and I just don't know what I'd do if he were to die as suddenly as Schodawg did. He is so, so important to me. As is my mother, my brother, and many other people in my life. Sometimes I feel like I take friendships for granted. I hope everyone I care about knows that I care about them. I wouldn't be who I am today without the influence of lots of people.
Speaking of people I care about, Laurel is coming here today! The bus she was on last night broke down around 10 pm, so she's getting here later than expected, but it shouldn't be too late. I'm so excited. I haven't seen her since December 26th. That's too long. I feel like our relationship thrives when we've got a little distance between us, but 2 months and an ocean apart is a bit much.
It's lunch time, but I'm not hungry and I still have laundry in the dryer. I'll walk to the dining hall, anyway.

I just took a bath in my resident director's tub. It was amaaaazing. Gawd I love soaking in bubbles.
Tonight I'm going to do math homework and trim Kaitlin's hair. Girl's night is Tuesday and volunteering at the Vietnam Vet's center is Wendesday. Laurel may be coming on Friday, but I have to confirm the details with her.
Life is pretty good here at Wilson. Good people, better food than Hood, and fantastic hiking all around. Friday I went to the coffee house at the cafe here on campus, and in the end it turned into one huuuge dance party. It was pretty indredible. And today John and I absolutely rocked out to Bohemian Rhapsody on the way back from the bookstore.
I think one of the best things, though, is that if I have anything I need to get off my chest, or if I just feel like I need a hug, I have people everywhere that I can turn to without feeling like I have to explian myself. I had a lot of that in Frederick, but it just seems to be magnified here.
Oh, aaaand a guy I work with can play the saw, and is going to teach me how to do it. Yesss.

I love Star kids and everything associated with Star.I love meeting fabulous people randomly on trains in big cities and having conversations that resemble those that I've had with people I've known for years.
I adore Jeff and milkshakes and not getting out of bed until noon. I love writing lyrics in the sand with my feet.
I love the Golden Girls.
