A Life Update

Life has been a little crazy. Usually when I say that I mean busy. This semester has actually not been too hectic, and after my play performed things got quieter still.
When I say crazy this time I refer to events. There have been a lot of changes, and I know there are more to come soon. The main ones:

  • My uncle stayed with us for a few weeks, and will likely be moving in with us indefinitely.
  • All my childhood friends (including my middle sister) are graduating on Saturday (!?!?). Which necessarily brings some stress, cooking mania, and an attack of cleaning lady syndrome in which I dust every surface, vertical or horizontal, in sight, and vacuum every floor, tile or carpet, in the house.
  • I got my driver's license FINALLY.
  • I'm turning seventeen in less than week (?!). While in many ways I'm excited to be a senior next year, graduate, go to college, get married, etc. I'm also sad about getting to the end of high school and especially about leaving sixteen. Sixteen has always been my ideal age, the age I sort of thought I might never reach. ;) I remember thinking about it when it was ten years away and wondering how I could wait that long. And now it is almost over.
  • I had my one year anniversary of my first job (I'm a house elf), and the same week applied for a  second job (at a grocery store a block from my house).
  • I signed up for two five-credit-hour courses at a nearby community college, for this fall: Calculus 1 and Beginning French. I'm considering Composition 1, too, since it fits neatly between the aforementioned, and I'll need it eventually. 
Smaller things:
  • I'm in part two of six in Lord of the Rings and loving it. The Council of Elrond is not boring.
  • I'm studying the Revolutionary War period in history and plan to continue through the summer, eventually finishing my high school history studies in February or so of next year. Calculus I'm excited for but a little scared about, Composition I would rather not take, but history I love wholeheartedly!
Unfortunately I can't put "wrote chapters and chapters of Arthur" since I've not written very much since I last posted about it here. :/ Next time I write, I won't mention it. Maybe it'll last longer then. ;)

  1. Ooh, happy early birthday!
    The council of Elrond is one of the best parts!

  2. I still need to get my license, hopefully that happens soon. Elrond is never boring.


Spill your thoughts. Observe common courtesy. You'll make me happy.
