My Dreams May Not Be Stupid

I don't know why I was struck to write something today. Nothing really happened. I studied and got some very nice messages from my Dad and some friends, but that's about it. And, while those messages are most appreciated, I don't know that I could write anything very meaningful about them (even if they were very meaningful to me. Did I mention they made me happy?). I guess this is just going to be a product of everything that's been swirling around in my head for the last few...well, months, I guess.

When I'm not studying for school, I spend most of my time watching movies and TV. This may seem like a useless pass time, but it's really been very helpful lately. I've been trying to make this sort of conscious effort to start looking for things in everything I watch that could possibly inspire me.  I've seen people onscreen who are fulfilling the dreams they cultivated by watching movies on TV on Saturday afternoons. I know that seeking such inspiration m…

Stop Napping and Start Living

It's been so long since I've written anything that I'm kind of having a hard time doing it now. But, as a good friend just told me, I should probably write something...after all, I have about a month's worth of college to write about now.
I've never been someone who's good with transitions...or being away from home for very long...or meeting new people...or trying new things...so, I've had an eventful few weeks. But, while these last few weeks have been a little nerve-wracking and scary, it's helped me appreciate the little things: a good cup of coffee,  a call to a family member, macaroni, a good book or movie, a quiet moment, time spent outside, naps, etc. 
But, as the same friend just told me (she's pretty smart...), I need to quit napping and start living (I am paraphrasing. She said something much wiser that I should have written down at the time). The fact that I don't know anybody and my attitude can change at the drop of a hat. I just ha…

I Found a Blog!!

You know what I just realized? I have a blog. You know, that I write on. Maybe I should write things on it... But in all seriousness, I have a very good reason that I haven't written anything on here since November. You guessed it, my dog ate my computer. Okay, that was the worst dad joke ever. It was really awful. Hey, at least I found something I'm good at...

Actually, these last few months have been the busiest and greatest I've ever had. I've traveled all over the country, performed in my first and last high school musical (it was not High School Musical. Sorry to disappoint.), and have done general senior-y things.

Along the way, I really kind of learned about how much I missed out on during my freshman and sophomore years. I've also taken a lot of pictures. I'm thinking about opening up a little gallery so the world can witness me in a maid outfit. Yeah, you read that right.

I'm really grateful that (even though I did nothing my first two years of hig…
