It’s been a long time, my lovely readers! I spent the summer watching movies and staring out the window at the lawn that needed to be mowed, and guess what? All that time spent resting totally didn’t prepare me for the CRAZY schedule I’ve got going right now. So the ride this new school season has been fast and dirty so far, but I’m loving it. And it’s a good thing, because I’ve got a ways to go…..a ways to go…
5. I’m really into choosing thematic music for my drives these days. On bright sunny days I’ll go with Kings of Leon or Florence and the Machine. Cold clear mornings call for Bon Iver and overcast days are all about Lana Del Rey. Oh, and if I drive past road kill I put on Neil Diamond. I’m not sure about that last one, but I think that when I’m sad Neil makes the world seem better. Brooklyn Roads? Brother Love’s Travelling Salvation Show? Yes, Neil makes all that is wrong right again in the world.
4. I was really excited to go to the lake and see if Stella our dog could swim. Turns out she can if we throw her in, but she totally hates it and panics like she thinks she might die. I admit I ruined the whole experience by watching a bunch of videos of wiener dogs swimming in pools (of their own free will), making my dog look lame in comparison. Right after vacation we saw the super dogs at the PNE, so…I now want her to jump through really tall hoops. It’ll happen.
3. Here Comes Honey Boo Boo is my new reason to feel good about myself. Yes I watched it, don’t judge me.
2. I’m taking a volleyball class this semester because my school has this awesome rule that if you don’t have the awkward feelings you had in grade 10 gym class (loserishness, awkwardidity, and suicidalation) then you’re not really earning a degree. In Psychology. Which requires a volleyball and tennis class, naturally. Anyway, my first class ended up being outside where I had to remove my shoes for the beach volleyball court, come up with a team name and cheer, and then I got hit in the face with the ball. Right in the nose from way up high, so it was pretty hard. It jiggled my brain and my nose went numb for awhile. The suicidalation got pretty intense after that.
1. I took this picture at the PNE, and no one in my group was surprised. At all.
