It's been a long time since I've posted a journal here (I see so many journal entries dated over a year ago that start out JUST LIKE THIS! I'm going to be unique and not promise to be more active.) so I thought I'd give updates.
First of all, I DID pass my driver's test the second. Since then, though, I lost my license for several months after my car skidded in a puddle (stupid BMV. It pissed me off so much that I became a libertarian.) - and I've been driving again for a little over a month now! So yeah, that was a thing. Honestly the biggest reason I wanted to post a journal is because I've been actually commenting and using DA a lot and I figured my angsty driving post was not the best first impression I could have given.
In much happier news, school is going great! I'm graduating in May of this year (SENIORS '13! WOO!) and hopefully be moving in with my boyfriend sometime this summer. And (though chances are looking pretty slim right now because he might not be able to find the time off work
) we might get to visit our friend in Munich - and if that were to happen, we'd definitely stop in and visit
! WHICH IS SUPER EXCITING!!! Once the school year starts up again, I'll be studying foreign language and economics - depending on the school I go to, I'll either be studying French and German or just one of the two - probably French. (Sorry Zoe!
) I'm pretty excited, though! As much as I'm enjoying school right now (and that's not sarcasm - I'm involved in LOADS of clubs and getting the best grades I've gotten my entire high school career! Which is great, except my college applications have all been submitted so none of it counts.
But it's fun! And I'm totally getting distracted!) I can't wait to start college and meet new people and have new experiences and be on my own and
I've been thinking a lot lately about contributing more in the way of art to DA. I've made some pretty spiffy-looking school projects over the years; if I can round them up I'll post pictures of them. We'll see. I'd just like my gallery to be a little less... dated.
Anyhow, I think I've rambled enough! Feel free to post updates about your life on my page - I'd love to hear from the two active watchers I have left.
But seriously, I've missed hearing from all you guys - you're fantastic!
P.S.: For all my adult watchers who live in the US, please vote on Tuesday! I don't care who you vote for (but remember that a vote for a Republican is a vote for misogyny
) just get out there and let your voice be heard because so many Americans just don't vote, and that just strikes me as incredibly sad because it's the easiest way for your voice to be heard (even if you think your vote doesn't really count because of the god damn electoral college, your vote counts even less if you don't cast it.)
Whee, I sure have bounced all over the place today, haven't I?
