A Final Thank You and Good Luck

I'm sitting here at work watching the clock tick closer to 3 in the afternoon, and in the silence of the Center, I turn on the only band I know can truly liven this place up for a party of one: My Chemical Romance. And as I think about the news of their break up, I remember all the things they have done for me. No, they didn't save my life like they have for so many, but they got me through my grandmother's fight with Parkinson's and Alzheimer's disease that ultimately took her life a year ago this coming Monday. They helped me through the funeral. And this past fall, MCR was there through every tantrum and curse I placed on my college thesis. They stayed up with me while I beat my brains out trying to analyze Thomas Hardy. I was a different person somewhat when I found them a few summers ago, but now, I think I'm a bit stronger. I've learned that I am who I am and people are stuck with it whether they like it or not.

I don't know what to say except--Thank you.

Thank you for all the great music.

Go team go!!!!

Sitting at home and watching the St. Mary's v. Memphis Tigers game. Screaming myself hoarse. Not going to tell you which team I'm rooting for, just know that I'm screaming at the TV as if they can hear me. I'm not into any sport except for basketball. Going back to it now. Go team GO!
Redhead out.
Peace and <3

O M G

Today is March 19th. Graduation is one month and a handful of days away. Today I received an e-mail all about what's to come and everything just got really REAL. For the whole semester, I've just been talking about it, making half-hearted plans, not sure anyone's going to come besides the family living nearby. But that e-mail today, with a list of dates and an actual website with ALL the rehearsal and ceremony dates has just floored me, slapped me in the face and said "honey, this happening." It's not abstract, something that is just going to happen some time in May. I've known the date since the year started, but now I know the time, know when the Baccalaureate is and where, when I get my cap and gown, all that jazz, and it's so REAL. High school, I knew every heart beat of what was going on, I was in the thick of it all helping the senior class representative keep it all in order.

As Promised--Frenemy Part 21

As I promised in my earlier blog, I am posting the next part of Frenemy. Please read, and comment if you want.

PART TWENTY-ONE
The club patrons ran from the building, ducking to avoid the flying lasers. The Killjoys had no intention of leaving the club in BLI’s custody. My intentions were only to quell the problem before anyone innocent got hurt. Unfortunately, the number of Dracs and Scarecrows intent on keeping them in Battery City put them on the defensive and started the gun fight.

Note about my Story Frenemy

It's Monday again. Getting closer to graduation. It's getting surreal. Almost done all over again. I just can't believe I've almost finished college. Wasn't it just high school? Sorry about the nostalgia. Four years ago I was a college freshman. Now I'm an experienced college senior ready to embark on real life.

White Chocolate Chips--Yum!

It's spring break---and it's ending. I'm back to class on Monday--yay. But some exciting things next week. Get to meet up with my bestie to celebrate my birthday and to catch up and then to meet with some friends on Thursday at the Republic coffee shop (maybe I'll hear some MCR again since I never hear it anywhere else in this city except my music player, haha) Can't wait. Wish my break was longer though.
My grandpa will be coming home soon from his rehab since his knee surgery. Can't wait to get him home! I miss him. I go see him everyday and leaving hurts because I want him home. At least he doesn't have to stay much longer. We took him out today for a little today, hit the local state park and took our doggie with us too. It was such a wonderful day. :)
That's about it. Planning for graduation which is coming up in a few months. College--it's so weird that I'm almost done with college.
Well, going to relax some and then get ready for bed. Later.
Redhead out.
Peace & <3

In the silence there is only silence

Random title. Has nothing to do with my post. Which my post is really boring anyways. Just catching up. Spent Saturday celebrating. I'm 22 now! Whoot whoot! One year older. Oh boy. Nothing really special about turning 22. This year is special, though, because I'm graduating in a few months. Finally done with college and then I can go out and prove to the world that an English degree is not useless! Nothing really going on. Just trying to get through mid-terms so I can have my spring break. Jeez, I really need a week off. Hanging out in the Writing Center right now because I have no where better to be and I'm probably about to pop in a movie while I finish the reading assignment for Wednesday's Science Fiction and Politics class. Highly recommend the book we're reading, Parable of the Sower by Octavia E. Butler. If you like sci-fi books,check it out. I have to use it to write a mid-term paper, so I better go finish it. Have a happy Monday!
Redhead out.

Can't Wait for this Weekend to Get Here!!!! :P

Class and tutoring--that's it. That's all I've been doing. My grandfather had his knee surgery done and is now in a rehab for his therapy and we're spending everyday with him :). Spent Valentine's Day alone as always--nothing new there. I hate the day, anyways. Too commercialized. Any day can be Valentine's Day for me as long as that person I'm with loves me. Anyway, that's all in the past. I'm looking forward to this weekend--it's my birthday! 22! All right! A friend called me old the other day--he's 22, too so I didn't get the insult. Besides, I don't feel old--I feel young and happy and energized and my heart beats with the spirit of a child. I'm not afraid of getting older. I welcome it. It's natural-- so why freak out about it? That's my philosophy about it at least. If you let your age define when you're old then you'll never get much out of life.
