Friday, anyone?

I feel as though today should be a good day.
Aside from the fact that I didn't go to that spinning class. Or the turbo kick class.
But, alas, life goes on!

And this is what it goes on to...

There is a man. He works at The Junction.
He made my delicious sandwich today.
This man has the most amazing blue eyes. And he is very, very attractive.
Just had to get that off my chest. (What chest? Ohhh, burn.)

Anberlin is amazing.

(That's Anberlin. Just so you know.)
Am I right? Yes, of course I am.
Their concert was so awesome! As is every one of their songs.
Love them!

I taught myself how to play the first part of 'When I Look At You' on the piano. I feel so accomplished.

Becca's best friend is coming up today. I'm actually pretty excited.
Is that weird, considering I don't know her?
Yet again, that means I should probably tidy up my side of the room so as not to look like a slob...

And I will get on that as soon as possible.

Which means at the last minute.


On the corner of Memory Lane and Now Street.

I logged onto Myspace today.
I know, Myspace.
Lame? Yes.

I noticed that I had a comment on one of my 'blog' posts.
(Which, compared to this, is the most boring blog EVER.)

It's this kind of reminiscing that brings joy!
Other memories, not so much.

But now, it is today. And I've new hills to walk my bike up.

*Kimberlee Dawn Lewis is the girl whom broke my shell and made me who I am today. She gave me confidence, love, friendship, and trust. Most of those qualities remained even after our friendship heartbreakingly disintegrated.


I have analyzed my love for surveys.

And I discovered that it's the best way to talk about yourself without any interruptions from pointless tales of others' love lifes.

That came out kind of harsh. Let me rephrase.

form an opinion.

Y-Yummy food you make: I make a mean bowl of Honey Nut Cheerios.

You know that feeling you get?
The one when you're away from home, having a grand old time, and suddenly it hits you that you're not entirely comfortable where you're at because the only place you're entirely comfortable is at home?
Well, I've never felt that.

What I get sick for is my dog. I miss her more than anything.

I mean, I know a few girls who tear up at the thought of home. I have a best friend who's heart is hurting. There's probably some people out there who are saddened by the fact that their parents aren't there to cushion them from the world anymore. And then there's me, who cries over her dog instead of her absent family.

But, come on, who wouldn't cry over this adorable creature?!
Okay, there are two adorable creatures in that picture, but here's hoping that it was obvious I was talking about the one with four legs.

Tongue-tied and twisted?

Okay, kids, class is in session. And I missed it again.

I've been spending all of yesterday and today contemplating what to write in my blog. So far, what I have written has probably outshined every other blog.
Yes, I believe so.
My roommate and I started our blogs yesterday, which means we each have one follower! And now I must write intelligent things so as to not sound ridiculous.
These are very high expectations.
Lower your blogging expectations of me, Becca!

So. Freshman year of college. Not as wild a ride as I anticipated. BUT, I wouldn't trade it for anything.

It's a very odd yet heartwarming feeling knowing that I have actual friends. Not that I never have, but under the circumstances, I haven't had more than one friend at a time for years. After thirteen houses, eleven moves, and seven high schools, it's easy to give up on friendship. And losing an amazing best friend in the process doesn't help much either.
Now, though, I feel like I belong. I don't anticipate the next move or transferring to the next school. I don't expect to lose the friends I now have.
I anticipated opening up to my roommate and floormates would have been a lot harder because of my past, but it turns out it was a lot easier.
 Maybe I just gave in to my need of friendship and belonging.
Thank goodness I gave in.

By the way, why is it so surprising that I have never been on an actual date?
Yes, you read that statement correctly.
I mean, I've been to school dances where we eat dinner beforehand, and I've hung out with a guy before (obviously) but I've never been taken out on a date. I did the asking for the dances, and usually suggested the hangout.
Lots of people haven't been on a date yet. Then again, even more people have been on one.
Oh well, it will happen eventually. And if not, there's nothing chocolate can't fix.
