Almost a year has passed since I last updated this journal. The important thing is, though, that I've uploaded some art in the meantime.

What has happened this year?
-Well, I choreographed and presented a piece called "Straw", a work based off of T. S. Eliot's "The Hollow Men".
-I also have gotten involved in Dance Medicine and Science, and am hoping to work as a researcher next year. I will be doing a lot of reading up on my anatomy and injuries this summer.
-In July, I will be attending a friend's wedding...she is the first of my peers to be married. It is an odd sensation to realize that, no matter how childish I feel, these things are starting to happen.
-I sprained my wrist a few weeks ago, but it is feeling a lot better.
-I was elected Fundraiser Chair for a student organization I am a part of.
-Preparing myself for my last, and fifth, year as a college undergrad.

I feel like this upcoming academic year will be an interesting one, and somehow very different from my previous four. But perhaps that is a good thing.

Well, summer has come and it is now on its way out.

I did go to Ann Arbor, and it was an amazing dance experience. I really learned a lot. I also got stronger and more flexible and seeing so many different dancers from different backgrounds was fantastic.

Other than that, little has happened. I came home, hung out with friends, worked out, laid around. Unfortunately, I have not written, which is a problem indeed. My piano has also been suffering as I have been forgetting to play. The irony of this is that I have been extremely bored, so it is not even that I have been too busy.

My senior year at college is coming, although I do not feel the impending doom of adulthood like my friends as I am doing another year after this. However, this year should hopefully be an interesting one.

Well, it has been several months since I last updated. And, unfortunately, it has been that long since I have written anything.

Dance has completely engulfed my life, I am afraid. Oh well. I suppose that's only natural.

What have I done with my life since I last posted a journal?

Well, I applied for an intensive that I will be doing in Ann Arbor for a couple weeks this summer. I found a place to live, and everything is set. I don't think I've ever been to Ann Arbor, and if I have, I don't remember it. I heard it's beautiful, though, so I am very excited. However, I will be dancing 6 hours a day every day of the week except on Saturday (I dance only for a few). I get one day off (a Sunday) during the 2-week long intensive. I have come to the conclusion that I'm going to either come back from this in awesome shape or it will kill me. One of the two.

I also choreographed for and performed/dance/acted in a student film. It was incredibly different. With a camera, everything is so personal. I am used to live, stage performances, where there is some wiggle room. When I was filming, the tiniest detail was noticeable. It was an amazing experience, though, and I hope to do it again.

I also was cast in a friend's piece for a show. The show is next week, and we still are not sure about costumes. We were originally going to wear these rather dreadful leotards that made EVERYONE'S legs look chunky, but mercifully she got rid of that idea. She is thinking of doing formalwear, now. Ladies in dresses, and men in nice slacks.

The only thing I have been displeased with during these last several weeks are my voice class. I always enjoyed singing. I've never been much good at it, but I've always had fun with it. However, this class is driving me insane. It is a non-major class, with no previous experience needed. And yet, on the second day of class we had to go up and do a solo. It is ridiculous and nerve-wracking. The midterm was another solo, and now we are working on private lessons...private meaning we go up and work with the instructor one-on-one with the entire class watching and taking notes. The instructor herself is not the most charming of individuals (she is one of those people you THINK is sweet and nice at first, but as time goes on you realize she is actually quite rude and passive-agressive). I am nervous for our final: we have to do 2 solos. I am comfortable with one of the songs, but the other is very foreign to me and is complex.

I am preparing to come home for Memorial Day weekend, so that should be a nice break. I'm looking forward to some downtime.

Well, it's been awhile, but I'm steadily writing again. I realize now just how much I missed it.

As of things happening in my life, I was cast in a piece by the legendary Gladys Bailin. I am in credibly excited. Her piece is comical, and open for a little acting, which makes it a lot of fun.

The duet I did with my friend turned out to be the favorite of the concert. Everyone was coming up to us afterwards and telling us how wonderful it was. Vae really is a talented choreographer, so I'm really not surprised.

As for me, I have my own cast of dancers and I am working on adjudicating a piece of my own, now. We'll see if it gets in. On top of this, here is a list of things I have to get done at some point:

-getting music copyrights for the music I am using.

-fill out and sign my apartment lease

-apply for a summer intensive

-figure out details concerning my new English minor (yes, it has finally been dropped to a minor)

-register for classes

None of these things are too bad, just time-consuming.

I suppose that's it for an update. I just noticed I hadn't made one of these since November, and I figured I might as well.

This quarter has been too long for my liking. I am completely and utterly exhausted every day. I am slowly coming to the realization that I do, indeed, dislike being an adult. It is much too hard. Too much stress. Hard decisions.

Speaking of hard decisions, I was forced to make one today.

It is impossible for me to be both a Dance major and a Creative Writing major; both are two different colleges, and completely overlap each other, so I cannot get my required classes in. If I were to try to do both, I would be here for an extra extra year. 6 years for undergrad is too much for me. I don't have the money, and I don't have the time. So, I am now going to be an English minor. Unfortunately, doing so does not put focus necessarily on creative writing, but I have to do what I have to do. You can imagine how frustrated I am right now. After all, if my university was staying on quarters, this would not be happening. But they're not.

I need to declare an English minor now. Just another thing to add to my list.

On the plus side, my friend is choreographing a piece, and I am in it. Should be exciting!

I have been writing when I have time, but it has been rough lately.
My University is conforming to the norm and switching to semesters. As such, I am plagued with boatloads of confusion and paperwork. In a little bit I must meet with my Creative Writing adviser to make sure the transition runs smoothly. However, as I am a double major, it just adds another layer of complexity.

On the plus side, I am a cast member of the Rocky Horror Picture Show here. It is a great deal of fun, and we had two shows this week (which, I think, were quite successful). There is nothing fishnet tights and corsets can't make better.

I am also thinking about choreographing a piece to adjudicate at some point. It will be a quartet; I just need to find two more dancers. I have the music already picked out (though it may need to be edited; we'll see) and I need to start churning out some choreography at some point. It's very intimidating to choreograph a group piece like this. I confess I am a little scared. But I feel like this is an important step in my growth and development, and if the piece does get in, then it will look great on my resume.

There is really nothing else going on except for comp projects and rehearsals, and I had a photo shoot on Sunday. I'm painfully busy, and writing, once again, is the victim. Hopefully I'll find some time in the next few weeks. I think I will.

As the title suggests, I am updating for the sake of updating.

This summer has produced absolutely nothing new and/or interesting for me to update about. So, therefore, I did not update. Here is a list of what I have been doing this summer (very short list):

-Dancing at the local studio

-Watching the Syfy channel

-Playing New Vegas

-Staring aimlessly into space

*note that there is a severe lack of writing in this list. This is because I have had very little patience/inspiration/focus to do so.

It should also be noted that I have only touched my piano once since coming back from school. This is very bad. My parents low-key hate me for it.

On the plus side, I found a grasshopper in my house the other day. I named him Oliver. He's back out in the wild now, newly named.

So at least I have that going for me.

Three weeks left until summer. Last night, I worked my last show for the year. Now all I have to worry about is getting projects done, writing papers, and studying for finals. I am ready to go home.

This weekend I'm going home for Memorial Day...my family is having a party. I'm bringing my friend Tonya and possibly one other friend with me, so that should be fun. I'm looking forward to non-campus food. Unfortunately, it will not be a very relaxing time, as there will be a great deal of preparation.

I'm feeling rather accomplished now that one of my big projects is done. For comp class, we had to get into a group and do site-specific work. My group chose an old alleyway with fire escapes and some graffiti. After a very rough beginning, we managed to choreograph a good dance to show.

My religion class is driving me crazy. There's so much reading, and the group I was put in to do the final project don't do anything and are terribly unreliable. I'd rather write this 10-page paper by myself.

Last week, my two friends and I went to see Spring Awakening...and it was amazing! I was not familiar with the music or the story, but immediately I was hooked. The story is sweet, funny, and sad. The music is amazing and simple. It was a really wonderful time to spend a night (and I love the music!).

In other news, Thursday was my friend's 21st birthday. It was a fun night; we went to her house for a bit, then we split up; she and some of her friends went to the bars, where I and some of my friends went to another party.

My dance crew has been offered the chance to help teach cheerleaders how to hip hop dance. In return, we get to use their facilities; a full gym with mats, sprung floors, and a stereo system. It should be fun, and it's important that I continue to get experience in teaching dance.

Other than that, however, nothing has happened much. I've been writing a lot more, and the weather has been warm.

Well, the quarter is drawing to a close (I leave for home Tuesday morning for Spring break), and I feel it necessary to update you on a few very valuable things I have learned this quarter:

1. Boots are perfect for everything.

2. My University has a horrible internet.

3. A little bit of tequila goes a long way.

4. Never trust someone who thinks Harry Potter is evil.

5. It is, in fact, possible for me to get my developes higher than 90 degrees.

6. Mousse is essential for me.

7. I need to strengthen my quads and hamstrings.

8. The metatarsal is in your foot.

9. Alwin Nikolais is a big deal.

10. Contemporary ballet is pretty cool.

11. I still don't care for post-modern dance.

12. Martha Graham was incredibly serious.

13. Enrique Iglesias is very attractive.

14. A G6 is a type of plane.

Winter quarter was very informative, as you can see. And these were only the things I could think of off the top of my head.

I need to get off my lazy ass and write.

I am exhausted. As the end of the quarter speeds by faster and faster, I find myself busier and busier. There's always math homework and now I have a big project on Alwin Nikolais that involves me looking through the library archives...this normally would not be a problem except that the archives close at 5, so I have to try and squeeze these visits in whenever possible.

I miss my sister. I'd wish she would visit soon.

I went to poetry night last week for the first time this academic year. Surprisingly, the MC remembered my name. It was a lot of fun to go up there again, and I plan on going again this coming week. I missed the whole ambiance, and I realized I have been quite out of touch with my English major side in a very long time; I just don't have time to think about it. Dance keeps me very busy.

So I've been back for a few weeks...at school, I mean. And it has been very, very busy. A great deal of dancing and math. I've had hardly any time for writing, of course, but I still manage to get a little done.

For dance 2 of my friends and I have to choreograph to Bach. It is proving to be very difficult, as it is a portion from the Well-Tempered Clavier. Fugue #3 in C-Sharp Major, to be exact. Unless you are choreographing ballet, it is very difficult. Oh, well. We'll figure something out.

Nothing else interesting is happening at the moment. I'm working the winter dance concert. So I'll be even more busy towards the end of this quarter...but it should be fun.

This weekend I went to Pennsylvania to visit my grandmother, who is in the hospital. It was a nice visit, and I saw some of my family I don't usually see. The drive was kind of bad though. Our car is too small for 6 hour long drives...

Christmas is around the corner and I still have so much to do. I have a few last-minute presents to buy and I need my hair done. This time of the year always gets crazy.

I've been dancing around my house lately. I think it's safe to say I miss dance. I miss the University in general, but I really miss dancing. We've only been on break for a month but it feels longer.

I have a few good ideas for choreography. I've been choreographing compulsively.

I also need to write something. I really do. I'm such a procrastinator.

Well, I've been home for awhile now, and I've enjoyed doing nothing. Thanksgiving was wonderful (such good food!) and now preparations for Christmas are in order.

The good thing about break is that I have time for writing. Unfortunately, the only thing I've written so far is the latest chapter of Ruins. Hey, it's something, right?

I suppose there's really nothing else to say. Nothing is going on at the moment. I just felt like an update.

Happy Holidays!

Finals week is in a few days. I am excited to go home for the holidays. I love the holiday season. Mmmm...Thanksgiving is going to be so delicious!

Dance is going okay. I auditioned for the Winter Dance Concert, but I don't know how it's going to go. I'm up against juniors and seniors, but we'll see. You never know. I have to show my final project on Wednesday for comp class. For the presentation, we had to choose a haiku and choreograph a small study based on it. It was kind of fun, I suppose. Not too bad.

I'm far more concerned about my Spanish final. Yikes.

Hopefully I'll be home next weekend if everything goes according to plan.

All of my close friends left for the weekend, so I thought I was going to be lonely for a few days. On Friday, though, after my friends left, I got dinner and coffee with my friend, Mariessa. Then later I went to the Movement Concert with my friend DesJaVae. After the the concert, Vae and I went to a party with Kim, another friend. I got back at around 2 in the morning, after making plans with them to go to the homecoming football game.

So, on Saturday, I went to the football game (we won) then went home, changed, had dinner, then went to the stroll competition (again, with Vae and Kim).

And, today, on Sunday, I had a coffee date with a friend from my old dance studio. Then I got dinner, and worked on all the homework I should have been doing over the past few days.

And now I'm typing this. Spiffy, huh?

On another note, Rachel (my friend from the old studio) and I want to do a random improv performance on college green or something, so that should be fun. Improv in front of people is certainly a great experience.

There's really nothing else going on in my life at the moment.

Well, it's the middle of my third week back in school. It's going to be a long year.

I'm a dance major now. And I'm at the studio every day, all day. I wake up, stretch, go to class, dance, have lunch, dance some more, have dinner, sleep. That's my daily schedule for the most part. Yet, I must say I would rather spend all day in a studio than a classroom. Dance makes me happy.

I attended an improv performance over the weekend where a visiting professor from last year, Adriana Durant, performed. She's amazing. I had her for ballet last year, and it was the best ballet class I do believe I have ever taken. And she visited and taught all last week; improvisation and modern. She's part of a dance company called Like You Mean It, and her group is called Sonic Duo.

I think improv may just be my favorite class I'm taking this quarter. I really enjoy it. Who knew?

Other than that there is nothing really knew in my life. Just dance. I'm taking ballet, modern, improvisation, production, African dance, Spanish, and English this quarter. Quite busy, really. Oh, well. :)

1) Choose 5 of your own characters.
2) Make them answer the following questions.
3) Then, tag three people.
4) Feel free to add some questions of your own.

Character(s):
Dee from Uncommonly Cases
Sangra from The Sword of Balance
Grayship from the Sword of Balance
Phil from Ruins
Faith from Uncommonly Cases

1) What gender are you?
Dee: I'm a girl. I know, I'm not very pretty. I wish I was. *sigh*
Sangra: Female. I don't think I could look more feminine if I tried.
Grayship: *chuckles* Male.
Phil: Do you have to ask? I'm definitely a man.
Faith: Female. And Dee, you're pretty. You just need some...some self confidence, is all.

2) What is your age?
Dee: I'm almost nineteen.
Sangra: Eighteen.
Grayship: *chuckles* I'd rather not disclose that. Let's just say I've seen plenty of things in my time, and now my bones ache, my hair (what little is left of it) is gray, and my walking stick is my closest friend.
Phil: Twenty three.
Faith: I'm eighteen.

3) Do you want a hug?
Dee: You wouldn't want to hug me. I understand.
Sangra: Uh...sure.
Grayship: Why, of course!
Phil: Well, that depends...are you a lovely young lady?
Faith: Er...okay?

4) Do you have any bad habits?
Dee: People tell me I'm too hard on myself and that I have no self-esteem.
Sangra: I have a nasty temper, which is a serious problem when you are on a quest to bring peace to the world.
Grayship: I've had many a bad habits in my lifetime. I do believe I have broken them all, and have gotten all the wiser for it.
Phil: I have a slight drinking problem. Just a slight one!
Faith: I'm very shy, and I'm trying to get more...outgoing.

5) What is your favourite food?
Dee: I don't know. Pizza, I guess.
Sangra: Hm. I really enjoy Vampire cuisine...minus all the animal blood. I don't know.
Grayship: A fine chicken roast with mashed potatoes and gravy!
Phil: Buttered noodles. What? You got a problem with that?
Faith: Ice cream. I love the stuff. One good thing about this move to Florida is ice cream all year round!

6) What is your favourite ice cream flavour?
Dee: I like pistachio.
Sangra: I don't know if I've ever had ice cream. Maybe I should try some, then answer your question.
Grayship: Sangra, you've had ice cream. You got chocolate and devoured it. As for me, I love strawberry.
Phil: I like moose tracks. Delicious!
Faith: Vanilla. You cannot go wrong with vanilla.

7) Are you a virgin?
Dee: Yes. No one would want me.
Sangra: Er...yes, I am. But I've...almost lost it. And I love him, so I may not be a virgin for very much longer.
Grayship: *laughs* Well, no. I am not a virgin. But I'm ancient, so it's not news.
Phil: HAHAHA! Me? A virgin? Now THAT'S rich.
Faith: Yes, I'm a virgin.

8) Have you killed anyone?
Dee: What kind of question is this? No! Why would I kill anyone?
Sangra: Yes. I have. Only in self defense. And I will never forget.
Grayship: Yes. Where we live, there is a great deal of war and squabbling. Like Sangra, I will never get over those lives I have taken, even the ones that have happened years ago. There is nothing light about taking another life. Also like Sangra, I've only killed in self defense and war.
Phil: ...yes. I don't want to talk about it.
Faith: Of course not! I would be in jail if I did! That's too horrible a thought to even joke about!

9) Do you hate anyone?
Dee: Not really. I hate myself a little bit.
Sangra: I did hate someone. And my feelings for my parents are border-lined hate.
Grayship: No. I can honestly say there is no one specifically.
Phil: Yes. Quinn Porter. That bitch.
Faith: Yes. My history professor disgusts me.

10) Do you have any secrets?
Dee: Yes.
Sangra: Of course. Everyone does.
Grayship: Yes. I do. But this is neither the time nor place to discuss them.
Phil: Yeah. But I'm not going to disclose any of them. But most of them deal with my childhood...
Faith: Yes. For example, and I no longer care if you know, my history professor is a good thirty or forty years older than I am, and his interests in me are far from what we learn in the classroom.

11) What is your favourite season?
Dee: Summer, because it means going home.
Sangra: It depends on what continent I'm on. As for right now, on the East Continent, summer can get a little hot and humid, but I still like it. Perhaps fall here. It cools down a bit, so it's the most pleasant. And it is also the easiest to travel through.
Grayship: Fall. I'm from the East Continent, so fall is the best, especially for my ol' bones.
Phil: Winter's okay. But I kind of hate it after having to hike and camp in it. So...I guess...summer.
Faith: Like Dee, summer, because I can go home to Buffalo.

12) Who are your best friends?
Dee: I don't really have any friends. But I guess Alex. And Faith.
Sangra: Nero is my closest friend. And Grayship, Reene, and Elen.
Grayship: Reene, my love. And I do love Sangra, Nero, and Elen, too.
Phil: I don't really have many friends, to be honest. In my line of work, you cannot trust too many people. I guess Keil is the person I'm closest to at the moment.
Faith: Sandy. I miss her. She's back in Buffalo, free to do whatever she wants. Dee, you are a good friend. I guess Dina and William are okay. But I'm still new to the University. I don't have very many friends.

13) What are your hobbies?
Dee: I like talking to insects. They have very interesting stories to tell.
Sangra: I love reading. Unfortunately, being the Queen Balance does not give me very much time for reading.
Grayship: I enjoy storytelling. I've been told I have the gift of the gab.
Phil: I enjoy researching various chemical compounds and stuff. I like experimenting. Biochemistry. Fascinating stuff.
Faith: I enjoy sketching. Occasionally, I'll actually paint, but mostly just drawing. It's very calming.

14) What is your favorite drink?
Dee: I like water.
Sangra: A fine wine is really nice. I prefer dry reds to whites or pinky wines.
Grayship: I agree with Sangra, a good wine is nice. But my absolute favorite beverage? Tea.
Phil: Whiskey. Easiest question to answer so far.
Faith: Coffee.

15) Have you ever died?
Dee: Uh...no?
Sangra: I love these questions! So nonsensical! No, I can confidently say I have never died. That I know of.
Grayship: No, but at my age, it's not too far off into the future.
Phil: This is ridiculous. If I had died, why the HELL would I be here?
Faith: Er...nope.

16) Are you nice or mean?
Dee: *sigh* I don't know. I don't care.
Sangra: Dee, are you okay? Uh, I think I'm pretty nice. Unless someone makes me mad.
Grayship: Sangra, you are a very sweet person. But you do have a temper. I'm a friendly guy. Very nice. I've never been a mean person. It's just not part of my personality.
Phil: *shrugs* I am whatever I need to be.
Faith: Nice, I think. Just shy, so people sometimes mistake me for being mean.

17) What do you think of your creator?
Dee: She's okay. I guess. *sniffles*
Sangra: Um...she's similar to me in some ways. So she's alright. And I've been fortunate. Although she made my parents horrible. So...thanks a lot. But it could be worse, I suppose. She made me pretty, outgoing, and kind. Although I do have my share of problems.
Grayship: She's okay. Very undisciplined in her writing though. She hasn't touched our story in a year. And she needs to rewrite the first 200 pages.
Phil: She's nice-looking. But she's crazy. And I hate her for making me such a horrible past.
Faith: She's a little sadistic, I think. She made me introverted. And she made that stupid professor a damn pervert.

18) What is your weakness?
Dee: I wish I were prettier, smarter, more outgoing...everything. I wish I were someone else.
Sangra: Dee, please don't say that. Um...my temper. And I've grown soft after a few years of living in a fortress and taking care of political moves. And by soft I mean physically...I do not have the endurance I used to have. Mentally, I am more sharp than ever.
Grayship: My weakness is my age. It's hard for me to travel. I have other weaknesses as well, weaknesses that I've come to realize in my old age.
Phil: I am an alcoholic. It's true. And I'm a sex addict. I'm sometimes really mopey. I spent six months of my life drinking away because I was upset. Kind of stupid, now that I look back on it.
Faith: I'm scared. I'm scared of taking some chances.

19) How long can you stay under water?
Dee: I don't know.
Sangra: Um...I don't know either.
Grayship: When I was younger, I could probably go a decent time.
Phil: How the hell would I know?
Faith: *shrugs*

20) Do you love someone?
Dee: Uh...no! No! Why would I love someone? Don't be ridiculous...who would want me anyways?
Sangra: Yes. I'm in love with Nero. And he loves me.
Grayship: Yes. Reene, my beloved. But she's a Spirit. And I'm mortal.
Phil: ...no...yeah...I don't know...it's complicated...
Faith: Nope. Other than family, I mean.

21) Does that person love you back?
Dee: ........
Sangra: Yep. He does.
Grayship: Yes. But I don't think we will ever be together.
Phil: No...why would she? I would know if she did, and she doesn't. That's pretty clear...do I sound bitter?
Faith: Family? Yes.

22) Do you like me?
Dee: I suppose.
Sangra: Sure.
Grayship: You've been pretty nice. Yes.
Phil: Who the hell are you?
Faith: Yeah.

23) What do you consider fun in the day time?
Dee: Watching TV and talking with insects.
Sangra: Reading.
Grayship: Relaxing, conversing.
Phil: Doing something slightly reckless. Anything...as long as there's a good chance I'll get out of it just fine.
Faith: Drawing, hanging out...going to the cafe.

24) At night?
Dee: The same as above.
Sangra: Formal dances and dinners. And looking at the night sky.
Grayship: Sleeping. Hey, I'm old, what do you expect?
Phil: *laughs* I think you know what I'm going to answer. For everyone's sake, I'm not going to say it.
Faith: Watching movies, hanging out. Dessert.

25) Are you gay?
Dee: No.
Sangra: Nope.
Grayship: No.
Phil: Absolutely not.
Faith: No.

26) What is your place of origin?
Dee: Cleveland Heights, Ohio.
Sangra: Well, the place I consider my true home is Sunnypeak, in the West Continent.
Grayship: I was born in Abasi, East Continent.
Phil: Central. In Westside.
Faith: Buffalo, New York.

27) Large or small family?
Dee: Small. I'm an only child. And both of my parents are only children.
Sangra: ....small.
Grayship: *chuckles*
Phil: It's just my brother and I...and...and my father...
Faith: Average, I think. I have a brother.

28) Who are your parents?
Dee: Roger and Sasha Green. My Dad works in a cubicle at a computer company, and my Mom is a department store clerk.
Sangra: I don't want to talk about them. They kicked me out at the age of seven. Abandoned me. And now that I am the Queen Balance they want me back.
Grayship: I was an orphan.
Phil: My Mom died. My Father is...a monster.
Faith: My Mom is a model, and spends much of her time in New York City. My Dad works in a cubicle for a cell phone company.

29) Piercing/tattoos?
Dee: No.
Sangra: Only ear piercings. One in each ear.
Grayship: I have a tattoo on my chest from when I was young. No one wants to see it now...I'm all wrinkly and old! *chuckles* It's of a dragon from the South Continent.
Phil: None.
Faith: Just my ears. No tattoos.

31) Is this quiz over?
Dee: I hope so.
Sangra: Uh...
Grayship: You are quite witty, my friend. *chuckles*
Phil: Beats the hell outta me. I need a drink.
Faith: Maybe?

Summer is coming to a close, and I have not updated my journal all summer. Here's a short recap of my life: I played video games. I watched Star Trek. And, of course, I seriously sprained my ankle on the 4th of July by, and I'm serious, falling in a hole. You can imagine how happy I am, especially because I'm going back to school in a few weeks, and I'm a dance major. Let us see...a lot of walking and a lot of dancing...sound good for an injured ankle? NO! I could vent about this all day. My ankle is still injured, and it has been over a month. It's still a little swollen, and I have been unable to dance at all. My doctor wants me to go to physical therapy, but that does not start until August 19th...which is only 2 weeks before I leave for school. So I can imagine it is not going to help me very much.

Okay. I'm done venting about that.

Well, school is less than a month away, and soon I will be back to running around campus and actually exerting energy of some kind. I have gotten so lazy this summer. Ah, well. It's summer. For now.

I love summer! There is nothing quite like lying around, hanging out with friends, and videogames. Unfortunately, I cannot work this summer for two reasons: One, I don't have a car to drive. One of our cars is broken, and my mom needs the one I would normally drive. And two, I need to help drive Bridget to her lessons because both of our parents are never home. So yeah. I'm going to be broke. @_@

There is really not much else to say. Just enjoying my summer!
