I don't think too many people bother to read this blog of mine, because I rarely bother to update it. It's difficult to blog, vlog, AND tweet. It gets to the point that I'm just repeating information over and over again and I know that's not very entertaining.
But...I felt like posting tonight. I kind of feel like I need to remind myself of all the awesome things coming up this summer. Work and other random little things have been getting me down, so I'm going to now list all the things I get to do soon, to help cheer myself up!

June 14th-18th: This week, I will be house-sitting at my aunt's. Some nights, I will be there with Nicole, and others with Megan. On the 16th, Megan and I will be going to Lexington to shop and eat Chipotle!

July 8th-13th: HOLY CRAP VIDCON TIME. I'll be in Los Angeles having the time of my life with some wonderful people!

August 7th-14th: Family vacation to Outer Banks, NC and Williamsburg, VA

Labor Day Weekend: DRAGONCON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah. That cheered me up quite a bit. lol

Have you ever had a revelation about something people have been telling you for years? Sure, you listen to them and try to take the advice, but sometimes it just takes a while to...click.
Or is it just me? xD
In a nutshell, I finally feel like I'm becoming mature and, to a certain point, acting my age. If you want something, you gotta work for it....and I'm ready to work for it.
I started school on Monday and everything has been kind of hectic. Now that I've gotten through the first week, though, I hope I can adapt to this new schedule. I've been wanting to still stay up till 2am, reading and chatting on skype, like I did during break. Those days are over, at least for a little while :(
I recently finished reading The Disreputable History of Frankie-Landau Banks by E. Lockhart and I really enjoyed it. I really want to read The Bermudez Triangle by Maureen Johnson, but now I have too much stuff I have to read for school right now. Maybe next weekend, I'll start on it :)
I watched American Idol last week, so, of course, I've had Pants on the Ground stuck in my head lol
Also, I keep obsessively checking the Dragoncon website for the updated guest list. I'm so excited to go again this year!
Today, I haven't done much of anything. I signed up for a writing test I have to take for teacher education in April and now I'm starting to read my history assignment so I can take an online quiz. FUN. haha
Yeah I know I can never keep up with livejournal...
and yeah I know that the only time I get here is if I'm trying to fill a hiatus from a show by looking at icons and reading spoilers :-P
While I'm here though, I guess I'll talk a little about what I've been up to.
I've been on winter break since mid December. During this break, I've basically been doing a whole bunch of nothing. I read Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows for a second time (and once again, I throughly enjoyed it) and I started watching Doctor Who from the beginning of the series 1. I've made my way through series 1, 2, and most of 3.
Voila! Now I am a Doctor Who fan! I always knew that I'd like it, but it was only a matter of making myself watch episodes in order, so I'd know what the heck was going on. I had basic knowledge already, but I needed to be filled in on a lot of details.

So...what have I been doing winter break?
Becoming more nerdy :)

...just because?

Sooo it's been a really long time since I've updated.
Here's an update.
Happy now? :-P
haha

 Dragon*con is 11 days away.
My birthday is 5 days away.
School starts tomorrow.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Life is busy right now, but in a very good way  :)

oh fanfiction...

from http://tamsibling.livejournal.com/16696.html  


 Pointing towards Kaylee’s door, he asked, “She all right?”

Shrugging once, River told him, “Simon’s not as good with his hands as she thought,” and then she was gone.

His eyes following her, Mal decided he did not want to know what the teenager meant and shaking his head, hard, he went about his merry way.



It's been over a month since I've last posted, so you may or may not be wondering what has been going on in my life since then  :)

1) I'm no longer doing Marching Band this fall, because I want to be able to focus on classes in my new major aaaaaand....

2) I'm going to Dragon*con! Meeting Amber, MK, Trevor, and possibly Beth, as well as famous actors and actresses from awesome TV shows! Words cannot express how absolutely excited I am about this

3) I finished The Book Thief and it was sooo good. I stayed up late to finish it and I cried so much.


School starts next week and I'm kind of excited for it, even though I'm no where near ready for it. I haven't bought textbooks, I've only completed one page of my seven page japanese summer homework package, and....yeah. It's going to be a weird, but welcome change.

I think it's sad that I'm more concerned about preparing for Dragon*con than I am preparing for school. LOL
I've been catching up on nerdy TV shows/movies so I can be involved in more panels. I've watched all the episodes of Firefly, Serenity, the first three episodes of Buffy, one episode of Torchwood, two episodes of Red Dwarf, and I think six episodes of Doctor Who. I am still planning on finishing the first season of Buffy and the first season of Dollhouse....

...... even though I should be doing that Japanese homework...
xD

Here is a list of things running through my head at the moment.

- Excited for the Chicago trip, but still annoyed about the hotel situation. Not having my own credit card makes things difficult and I don't feel like I can rest easy until it's all taken care of.

- I have to go and take my drivers permit test next week. Blah.

- Reading The Book Thief. I love it.

- I still need to go to campus, officially declare a new major, and sign up for classes this fall. It gives me a headache just thinking about it.

- I have an iphone now. (Just a warning: Once you get an iphone, you can't go back.) I don't know how I lived without it. I can check twitter and facebook whenever the freak I want to. I also have a texting plan now.

- Work has been insane and it doesn't help that my dad is a manager. I hear about every problem. I wish I could do more to fix it.

- Despite having to work so much lately, my paychecks have been amazing. Also, the perk of working for an independent, family-owned business -- we all get summer bonus checks. Niiiice.

- I want to see Up again.

- Did I mention that I can't wait for Chicago? I get to meet Emilyyyyyyyy  <3  3/5 of vlogsmoothie in one place.

Megan and I had a blogtv show today that didn't go quite according to plan...but it's whatever. We still ended up working things out in the end and now I'm pretty excited about Chicago. 22 DAYS. AHHHHHHH.

..But...until then, life isn't going to be easy. I need to be responsible and take care of important things. I really need to work my way to getting my license. I have to get my permit again because it expired a really long time ago. I need to go to Marshall and talk to advisors about changing my major over. I'm still not 100% sure on what I want to change it to yet. I keep having second thoughts. One day, I'll think English Education...the next, Elementary Education. Either way, I know I want some sort of education degree and I know that I want to add on a double major in Japanese. It's just...I have to figure all this out really soon...and it's a pretty big decision. I'm still afraid of screwing up again and wasting more time.

I'm also a little conflicted about marching band, because I know friends on mine...particularly, youtube friends, want to get together and meet on weekends. Marching band will pretty much make that impossible. At the same time, I want to do Marching Band because I want to keep music in my life somehow even though I'm not a major anymore. Also, I've always wanted to give it a try and I told a number of my friends that I would already. So...I feel that obligation to do it, but right now a big part of me wants to say "screw it all". Part of me is tired of music stuff.

I don't know, but I'm thinking I won't be able to make up my mind quick enough and then I'll be stuck doing something I don't want to do anymore.

I kind of just want to start something new. Be a different person. Clean slate. Detox. Part of me wants to keep holding on though.

Sorry if this makes no sense. I'm running on 3-4 hours of sleep and tons of PIXI STIX  :)  Just getting all this out of my system.
