So finally, fall break is here! I have been so ready for a break…so this feels wonderful! The only problem is that while I’m here I have to write a paper and work on a speech….but I can fall asleep on my couch watching tv with my family again, which I love. Something else that I really appreciate is how there are hills down here…:) Central Indiana is honking flat, but once you get south of Cloverdale….and close to Spencer….it gets wonderfully hilly. Thats one of the random things that I didn’t think about missing, just like the cornfields that I never see in Indy, and not being able to drive down the street and see five people that you know. That’s my favorite thing about coming home…realizing how much you love all the things that you always took for granted about your town and all. It’s always nice to come home to relax and see everyone, but its also nice to go back to school to see everyone there too…especially when my family starts getting crazy….haha…no i’m just kidding, I love my family. I came home last weekend too, because it was a friend of mine’s birthday, and all of my best friends from high school were going to be home. It was so much fun to see all of them….it’s been so long since we had all hung out together, and they’ve all grown up so much!! haha… My boyfriend, Scott, was on fall break too, so it was like the summer all over again! Having all of my favorite people at home was amazing though…I hadnt realized how much I really missed just going over to Scott’s house and hanging out with his family, or having random fun with my friends…I just wish that I had been at home for longer…:(
So normally in my blogs, I talk about things that I’ve done lately. But sadly, I have been really boring lately, because I have been so busy with studying and practice and meetings…I had three tests in two days, and then a bunch of meetings and practices. On Tuesday I had a Psych test, and I studied more than I have ever studied in my life, which was sorta hard because I was crazy tired, so my roommate Hannah would probably tell you that she saw me sleeping more than I was studying….what can I say? I can’t help it if I just conk out while I’m reading on my bed……haha. But somehow, when I wasn’t studying for Psych, or sleeping with my notecards and book and computer all around me….I found time to study for my other two tests…..and go to dance practice, and meetings, and yell like hell practice (its a cheerleading competition between the sororities, frats, and residence halls for homecoming…I’ll talk more about it later!) So now that all of this is over…I can breathe again….but since homecoming is next week, I have a feeling things will be crazy then too!!! Although for right now, I love looking at my iCal and seeing nothing to do for the next three days. Wow. I love it. Somehow, I can handle having nothing to do when I’m at home, but when I’m at school I always have to be busy with ten thousand things to do.
When I was in Elementary school, I was obsessed with reading. So obsessed that I would stay up way later at night than all of my family, just to read. Back then, I was a big fan of Nancy Drew. Then I read a few of the Harry Potter books….and after the third one, I discovered how cool our computer was, especially with ICQ, Yahoo messenger, MSN messenger, and the always exciting Expage. So I stopped reading for a few years…. except for every once in awhile during ISTEP or when we went to the library with our class and we had to get a book….until this summer, when I heard about the Twilight books from my boyfriend’s sister Susan…and since then, I have been obsessed! I’ve read the first two…and now I’m basically obsessed with reading again. Whenever I get sucked up into a book I get into my own little world….and i loose all track of time, unless my computer tells me. (My computer tells me the time every hour on the hour….its like a high tech personal bell tower.) I decided to go back and pick back up on the Harry Potter books where I left off, because I felt kinda bad that I just totally deserted them…so I think I will just alternate Harry and Twilight until I have finished them all. But if you havent read them….you should. And if you have read all of them….DONT TELL ME WHAT HAPPENS!!! My roommate is probably dying to talk to me about Twilight….but shes doing a great job keeping quiet.
So I’m off to try to be productive….as always…:)
