why haven’t I blogged in so long! I’m sitting in greenberry’s, and I just finished reading an entry from my friend Kaye’s blog, so the urge struck me. I don’t know why I haven’t been doing this more - I’ve been up in the ‘burg for Maymester for a week and have been searching for more things to do with my time!
This weekend was great, and very relaxing. It felt weird not doing a lot - I’m used to using all of my time with others, not spending it alone. Last night I stayed up until about midnight finishing The Outsiders, which was great! I really enjoyed it. I was reading it earlier in the day at the earth and tea cafe, and literally started crying when Ponyboy was reunited with his brothers in the hospital. Darry’s character really got to me. Things really are “rough all over”; it’s easy for us to judge each other and feel that our own problems are bigger than others and that no one can understand - but we all have our own battles in life. Similar to the thoughts from The Perks of Being a Wallflower - we all have problems, and just because we perceive them to be less than others doesn’t mean that we should belittle them, or think ourselves as lesser.
There is a baby crying in a car in the drivethrough of greenberry’s and it is disturbing me. stop crying little oneee
I miss Patrick. As much as I am getting excited about Blue Lake, I know it is going to be really difficult to be so far away from him for that long. I really hope he can visit me in the second session break. Otherwise I will go crazy being apart for 2 months. But I know that we will make it through stronger than ever. (;
wow, baby - stop your tears. it’ll be okay.
i was wrong. the baby wasn’t in the car. he is behind the counter. and he is not a baby. he is toddler and he should stop crying please. Also, why do you have your toddler with you at work? no wonder he is crying.
anyways. Today I got up and lounged around for a bit. I cleaned my room, and got the urge to craft. So I pulled out my craft supplies and saw that I had glitter, mod podge, and an unpainted frame! I also was on pinterest prior, and this spurred my desire to craft. I glitter-ed the frame, and painted the cardboard that comes inside with green chalkboard paint. Now it is a pretty message board! I also cut off an older pair of jeans to make shorts, and made a braided headband out of ribbons I found. I love my craft box. The whole time I listened to the Florida Georgia Line pandora station - I’ve been on a country music kick lately.
Then I played some nancy drew (fourth game in a little over two weeks - can you say addicted?) and went to urec. I biked for about 40 minutes, did some abs, and ran 1/2 mile (I hate running).
Now I’m at greenberrys - I should be studying for a quiz, but instead I have eaten a delicious croissant and am blogging. I need to go home in the next hour or so and make a late dinner. I don’t want to have pasta again, and I had a morning star chicken patty sandwich for lunch.. I guess I’ll stop at the store and pick up some supplies.
Bread (so I can keep eating pb&j’s for lunch erry’day)
Peanut Butter (see above)
Something for dinner meals? (not pasta related) - I am also babysitting tomorrow night and will have a bit more funds. I am so poorrrr
Well. I need to do work. Love ya!
