Starting to be a hectic time — squeezing in appointments, trying to see friends for the last time before I leave, taking advantage of my parents’ money as much as I can, whileI can! But it’s been nice, it’s nice to be busy again! After New Years, things started to calm down once more, and it was back to sleeping all day, then complaining about not having anything to do.
What did I do to keep myself occupied? you ask? Well…I read and continued to read. I finished Middlesex which wasn’t something I initially wanted to do, but it ended up being a really good book and I didn’t want to put it down…probably because in every chapter something odd came up and I wanted to know what would happen! After Middlesex I read The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini, which I highly recommend. Earlier during the break, I read My Sister’s Keeper by Jodi Picoult which is also a real page-turner. As I was reading these books, I came to a realization: something bad always has to happen in a book or movie.
Why is that?! I know that conflict causes drama, and people become interested in the five Ws and H: who, what, when, where, why and how. But why can’t something good happen, and then things continue to get better? For an example: Why can’t someone win the “jackpot” and then have things continue to get better for them? Rather than them winning the “jackpot” and then told that they can’t have it for a certain reason? Karma I guess: “what goes around, comes around; what goes up, must come down” right?
but anyway
::end nerdy moment::If you recall in an earlier post, I talked about how I was going to make the 2nd semester better. Well, I currently have completed one step! I offically have a job! I will be working at the Clerc Centerat KDES. I will be an office assistant, working 15 hours a week. I was supposed to work 20 hours a week, but I talked to my bosses (MAN! I LOVE SAYING THAT!) and asked for fewer hours because of my classes and how I wouldn’t be able to work 20 hours. So yay for me! I won’t be an extremely poor student…just a poor student, so it works out ) ALSO! In March, I will be able to go to the warm state of Texas! To help out at the Gallaudet High School Academic Bowl!! so that’ll be fun! I can see some people I’ve competed with and against for three years. ) It’ll be fun, I can’t wait!That’s it for now! I just wanted to spread my cheer, since, for some reason, I’m extremely hyper right now!
ciao!
