(aka random ramblings because I’m too tired to stay on topic)
So I’m in CollegePlus. It’s amazing. It’s time consuming. It’s nerve-wracking. And I love it. One of the things I love about CP is the people. (See my last post.) The students are amazing. Everyone has the same convictions, so it’s really easy to connect and have really deep friendships.
I’ve been listening to Rend Collective, a band I was introduced to, basically nonstop for a week. *glares in the direction of a certain person* It’s awesome. Here’s one of my favorite songs.
I haven’t written anything in *checks* almost three weeks. THREE. WEEKS. The last thing I worked on was The Art of Letting Go, and I left Daniella in a REALLY tough place. Unfortunately, I’ve been so swamped with school that I can’t find time to get her out of this really hard place. Another thing that’s keeping me from working on TAoLG is the fact that I’m almost done with it. I’m almost done writing it for the first time – the first draft. As soon as I finish the first draft, it’s basically over. The rest is editing. I can’t discover things about these characters anymore. And it’s really sad to think about. 😦 But I want to work on it more than I don’t want to work on it, so. I’ll work on it soon. Want the last few sentences I wrote, three weeks ago? Of course you don’t. Watch me push it on you anyway. 😀
A few weeks ago, I got a letter of acceptance to my first choice. I read it once, texted Dad about it, then stuffed it into a drawer in my desk, trying not to think about it. I still can’t really see myself at college without David right there beside me. We’d spent so many hours together, dreaming about what our life would be like in five, ten, fifteen years – how we’d spend our college years together, get married sometime during or after college, then start having children. It seemed like the American Dream. But I’ve been constantly hit with the stark reality that it was just that – a dream.
– The Art of Letting Go
(SNIFF. I forgot about that part.)
On a slightly happier note – STUDIO C SEASON FIVE, ANYONE?! So funny already. My favorite sketch so far, I think, has been this one…
… followed closely by this one.
On another note, I was looking at pictures from the set of Unbroken earlier today and I started fangirling again. Guys. If Jolie ruins it – meaning, she doesn’t add in the Christian aspect of Zamperini’s testimony – I. Will. Sue. Eva’s gonna join me.
Here’s the trailer again, in case you missed it the first dozen times I posted it.
“If You get me through this, I swear – I’ll dedicate my whole life to You.” (FISTPUMP)
Let’s see… what else should I talk about? I know – my adorable younger siblings! Earlier today, JellyBean was walking around, carrying a loaf of bread in its bag. When I told her to put it back in the bread drawer, she stood there for, like, two minutes, trying to get the drawer open with her toes like her older siblings do. (Heh. Heh.)
And earlier today, my little brother watched Spy Kids 2 and was singing that song that Floop sings – something along the lines of, “You can dream my dream, you can dream my dream! And, if you follow me, you can all be free! Free! Free!” And JellyBean was copying his handmotions and singing, “Bee! Bee! Bee!” It. Was. Adorable. I’m telling you guys – they get cuter every day.
Well, it’s time for me to head to bed. Before, though, I’d like to tease a few things. (But only tease. MUAHAHA.) I have not one, but two VERY exciting blog posts coming up! One is the Very Special Announcement I told you guys about in my last post, and the other is something that has happened since I got back from the CPE3. Very exciting stuff. You won’t want to miss it!!! And that’s all I’m going to say. 🙂
