So the last time I updated was about 6 months ago, when I dropped off the face of the planet. Well, I'm back, and the times sure have a-changed. I figure that I'll try to keep writing in this because I really can't bring myself to write in a real journal -- without the allure of strangers reading my words, I encounter a dulling writer's block. Narcissism at its finest, I suppose.
I just got back from Fire Island, where Michelle and I stayed at Eliza's (rented) place there. I will maybe post pictures later. It was super nice and sunny and I read three books (Slammerkin, Kite Runner, and Don't Try This At Home, for those who care) and got some sun. The water was freezing though, so I didn't go in after the first day.
My room is actually clean for once, but aside from OCD cleaning, I feel as though I have accomplished little this summer. I really should get off my ass and go to the ICP or something, but I can't really bring myself to. I suppose that while I'm at it, I should do more college stuff, maybe do some reading. I still have to go out and buy the required reading book, it looks so retarded. I love how anyone who uses the word "retarded" as an adjective for anything but a person who is developmentally or mentally retarded automatically makes them sound like they have the mental capacity of the type of person they're describing. Retarded. Anyways, it looks...dumb. I don't want to read it.
Here is a list of things I should do:
Check the last week of achewood (www.achewood.com <-- check it out)
Go to the gym to get ready for volleyball preseason
Read that retarded/dumb/stupid book (Branded)
Do college stuff
Clean my bathroom
Go work at the ICP
But instead I'll probably just play WoW or something.
Does anyone want to go to the Whitney with me on September 15th to go to a Zoe Strauss (zoestrauss.com) presentation? It looks super good, but I'd prefer to go with someone.
As for classes, it seems like I'm the only person who got a near-completed schedule. After arena, which should be as horrible as usual, it should look like this:
Spanish V (I'm actually in the equivalent of Spanish VI but Packer fails so yeah)
AP Art History
Hero's Journey/Latin American Lit
I'm pretty psyched about it. I have 3 hour frees every day, which should be really really nice come second semester.
Anyways, hopefully this marks my return to LiveJournal...but who knows.
