This next Thursday is the last day of my enslavement to a class that is both daunting and obnoxious in one fell swoop. Friday, is the day of my freedom...and for work...but the morning is the beginning of the sweet bliss that is Christmas Vacation. May Friday come swiftly for me.

I know what you're thinking, why does she have a blog if she never writes on it. Well, ladies and gents, I have one because I want to be the person who writes blogs. I want to write in general and a blog is a fabulous place to do that. I just don't have reliable computes/ Internet at my house. Therefore, I must use my sisters Internet, and frankly, I forget to write stuff on my blog because the tools are not at hand when inspiration strikes. Those of you who know me also know that I am not particularly neat and would lose any scraps of paper that I would write my unparalleled insights upon. Tonight I am staying at my sisters, which is why I am actually writing a post.
However, the fact that I just looked at the clock and see that it is past midnight, I should sign off and go to bed. Big day at Church tomorrow. Double rehearsal for the Singing Christmas Tree (our Christmas pageant, complete with full choir).

Today we had zero plans. Today we did whatever we felt like. Today we drove through a really sketchy downtown.We started our day by heading to Lake Erie. We found this local lighthouse and went to check it out. It was probably the funniest thing ever. It was like someone looked at it and said, "Hey, let's try to make money by charging people a ridiculous fee." It cost $7 to tour the lighthouse, but you couldn't wear flip flops or sandals. This was something they forgot to mention on the website. You could walk around the grounds for free, but Becks and I felt weird cause there were workers watching us. On the upside, leaving the lighthouse right away led us to an adorable little park with a path down the the shore. It was not a tourist attraction, but it was very nice for a local place to hang out, as many locals did.
We then started our drive back to our town. We had a gorgeous drive along the lake and we stopped for lunch at a cute little town that had a coffee shop/cafe. After filling out bellies, we continued on our way.
In the town we are currently staying in there is a chocolate shop that Becky found online. However, there was road construction and we couldn't find it. This is a fact that I can happily live with because that downtown was totally scary. It was kinda run down and shabby looking. Needless to say, we headed back to the hotel. We then found a dollar theater and saw Killers. * note: I do NOT recommend this movie. I had been curious about it, and genuinely wanted to see it. However, it was a little confusing and had a stupid end.
Tonight we will plan our tomorrow which includes leaving PA and heading back to Ohio.
Mams, here's my shout out to you. Love ya!

We finally left our hotel around 11 after Becky had quite the ordeal of booking a room. We decided to forget about going to Canada (we have been into part of it before) and we just moved on to PA and NY. We're staying in PA but close to the boarder so it won't be hard to go somewhere in NY, because who doesn't want to go to NY?
For the mams, here are the promised pictures.
And I'm sleepy so I'm gonna go now.
Isn't it nice to be able to count days of a road trip? I think so. Anyway, as previously specified by my sister, I awoke at 8 this morning so that I could shower and wake her up so that we could hopefully leave the hotel 2 hours later. I was out of the shower by 8:30, which was pretty good considering that I was groggy enough to try to put face wash into my hair.
I didn't post very much last night because the computer started glitching on me. After I uploaded the photos, I couldn't get my cursor back. Moral of the story: write all that you want to say, THEN go back and upload the photos into their appropriate places.
Our drive yesterday really went well. We had no troubles until 40 miles from our designated resting place. Becky's low tire light came on, but upon investigation it appears to have been a glitch. We tested all of the tires with Becky's handy green tire gauge and found them all to be within the levels of pressure which dad told us was acceptable. So we'll check today before we leave (at 10???) but I am confident that it will be fine. The only other time we had trouble was when we got lost trying to find the hotel. However, Becky's amazing abilities to picture the layout of towns in her head (this truly is quite spectacular) saved us by magically finding the hotel in about 10 to 15 minutes.
Great news! Becky just got up! I now have hopes for a 10:30 departure. Which means that I must stop blogging and start getting ready/repacking my stuff.
If there is wireless Internet tonight, I'll tell you about our day once again.

Never before in my life have I thought that I could write the word sweltering. I don't think I ever fully understood the word until today. Sure, I've read it in books, thought it was a marvelous word for certain situations, even thought about praising whoever came up with it in the first place. However, today has put all of that in the past- except the thinking it is a marvelous word- for I, blendy, painted a room in a building without air conditioning and poor air circulation. Sweltering is probably the best word I could come up with for the day. I came home and proclaimed to my mother that I was officially the grossest person on the planet...I had the total and unshakable feeling of 'ick.' But have no fear, I have showered and now feel awesome! May you all feel as un-icky as I.

I am just having a hard time giving up my dream. In church this Sunday the pastor talked about Faith. He said that living by faith is a challenge and that giving up your dreams to trust that God is faithful to take you where you need to be is difficult. Living by faith isn't easy...but I think that it's worth it. His example was Abraham, who had to exercise faith all of the time. I was really encouraged and challenged by this. I think that I need to be willing to give up my dream of going straight to another college and maybe work to that I don't have so much debt. It's not going to be easy, but if that's what my parents and I decide is best, I'll do it.
Those are my weightier thoughts of late.

The other pleasant surprise was the new templates on Blogger! HURRAY! I'm going to be honest, they were boring when I first signed up for a blog...and I think they have been new for a while, but... I haven't checked in. Tee hee. My bad.
Anyway, I can't write very much because my sister and mom are WAY too loud. The NBA Finals are on and they are each rooting for an opposing team.
Tuesday, April 13, 2010
On a happier note, I received a package from one of my dear friends attending another college. It totally made my day as a whole AMAZING!
Tuesday, April 6, 2010
Anyway, I should get back to work.

I just finished a PowerPoint presentation for one of my classes and am now looking for a break. Since I am still stuck at my school, there is a pressure on my brain that I just want to slough off and run away from. I am tired of school. I truly am. I want to be finished, free, and blissfully ignorant of all things academic. (Except for reading...I am really looking forward to reading numerous books this summer. I've already started a list. First up, finish Little Dorrit by Charles Dickens- that book is a beast!) Anyway, be prepared for ramblings. To begin:
- How on earth do they pick the color of the text when you hyper-link to something? How do you change it?
- Don't you love staying up late? I was up until almost 2 last night and it was marvelous. My favorite part is when I am walking up to my house that late. It is so still and quite and just plain gorgeous.
- I have been debating about using people's real first names. Honestly, I can't remember the fruit names that I gave people and I don't really want to look back. But I kinda feel like I could be giving away their identities...so we'll see. I kinda like calling my oldest sister Louisa though. It is rather amusing to me. We'll see what I feel like.
- I am saddened and dismayed that KU is not going all the way. I know they lost a while ago, but I am still sad. I think my cousin jinxed it when he put Kansas State to win it all...not even right.
Okay, I need to read a book for one of my classes. So I will leave this place of writing bliss to go back to the deep despair of annoying school work. Farewell, creativity! I must leave you for monotony.
p.s. Yes, I stole Louisa's format of bulleting on purpose.

Anyway, back to me and Louisa. After we decided to ditch the DVD, we just flipped around on TV until Louisa went to bed. I stayed up about two hours later. I found Overboard, a older but cute movie and 10 Things I Hate About You (the television show). It was rather fun, but I was a little tired today for church, so probably not the best plan to stay up late. But church was packed! The children were performing today for Palm Sunday and they only did their program in the second service. After church we went to Walmart and bought some stuff, whether needed or not. We came back, cleaned her apartment, took a walk and enjoyed a delicious supper...which I made. French dip sandwiches and fries- yummy. Then she introduced me to Firefly, an odd but interesting show. And now I am writing while my mom (who showed up recently) and Louisa watch Nebraska basketball game. I am not that into sports so needless to say, I have been on the computer. I watched a House and made a new station on Pandora. Boy, you have to love computers and the internet.
What we have learned today, is that
1. I apparently have a fascination with hyper-linking
2. I will ramble about anything
3. Louisa is a fun name to say even if the person you apply it to does not have that name

Anyway, I should get ready for a movie we are going to watch and go to bed so that I can get up tomorrow so we can leave.

Oh, side note: I will be attending a wedding this weekend of one of my high school classmates...and we graduated last spring...so not even a full year out... and one of us is getting married...that's just crazy.
Well I'm going to go cheer up now. Maybe I should stop typing in a blue color. That's better. Well I got some stuff to study before class.
Sunday, January 24, 2010
Well that's all for now because talking about a college search just makes me sad.
