Current Music: Swing Life Away by Rise Against
I figured it was time for a real lagit update so here it goes. Things have been really bussy, really hectic, but really great all at the same time. I am really liking school this semester. My classes have been interesting, even though the English Lit Profs. are long winded and need to take a few speach classes. Davison, one of the creative writing profs, is a laugh riot and is one of the best teachers I think I ever had in my life. Homework has been a pain in the ass this week. Mid-terms have given me: One 5 page essay, three 3 page essays, and one 2 page essay. It is insane, but I have been on top of it.
I have been working more latley and attempting to earn as much as I can to get thigs squared away financially in more ethan one aspect. I'm also planning to pay for a work abroad program in Britin after I graduate, if I get it together it will be a six month stint right after I get my BA.

Socially life has been pretty good. My roomates are great, and while I have been really bussy doing work and school I have still been squeezing in fun were I can. On the romantic side of life, Julian and I are still doing well (I realized I never came out and said it on here, so some of you may not know that he is in fact my boyfriend, not just a good friend, and it has been that way for quite some time).. While both our school and work scheduals get in the way at times, we find time where we can to spend together. In truth I am the most content and happy right now than I have been in a long time. I feel like am exactly where I should be, with all the kind of people I need right now around me. Well, execpt for one thing, I found out that my roomate from last semester, Kathrine has contracted Lupis (it isn't a contagouse diseas so I'm not quite sure of the direct causes), so at the moment they are giving her keep giving her Kimo to treat it, and it will be off and on for most of her life. Fo those of you who pray keep her in your prayers, please.

Lately I have been listening to Swing Life Away by Rise Against on repeat. I Don't know why but it just seems to hit the mark with me for some reason.

Oh I can't stand that song!

Well actually, that song would be wonderful, except for the one line that puts and impossible idea into the minds of todays youth...Minimum wage sucks ass! Trust me I know!!!! That one line angers me everytime I hear it, yet after that the rest of the song is great! I guess for the tone of the song they really couldn't put "we'll starve and go hungry on minimum wage"...It would just ruin the whole song now...Yet, they don't have to lie either!...Grr! All because of that one stupid line! Grrrr! LOL!

I guess I am just hunkering down for a good long stint of waitressing jobs and such to keep the writing career in check. Right now I'm getting below SFs min wage, (there is this wierd small buissness clause that ends in January), but since, for now I get help in financial aid and the like it holds things together. I think if you live in the south where COL is dirt cheap it could work. But then you live in the south. :)
