Zero to Hero in No Time Flat

Some things have come up. Financial things. Nothing's certain right now, but I'll be making some rather large adjustments within the next three weeks. It's going to be rather busy and stressful, and I'm already feeling gloomy about it all, but I know that these next few steps are going to be for the better. So I'm going to leave this rather discreet for now, and discuss it further when things get rolling along. I just needed to get that out. It's been pent up since Sunday evening. blech.

Today started off really well until I started being mopey for no good reason. I woke up at the crack of dawn to go on a bike ride with my sister, and it was really refreshing! Sometimes I really appreciate gloomy weather, especially in the fall. Unfortunately, I only appreciate this gloomy day because it's fitting nicely with my gloomy attitude. I'm not really sure what my problem is... mixture of things, I guess. Maybe I've finally come down off of my "feeling good" high I talked about last post. Oh life. Must your ups and downs affect me so? Well, okay, fine. Have it your way.

I haven't written anything since May, people...MAY! I've been too preoccupied with other...things. Good things. Lovely things. People, actually. ANYWAYS, I've been (gladly) preoccupied, but man, my imagination is really starting to shake its fist at me! It hasn't been exercised in two months and I'm afraid once I let it out for a nice stroll down Creativity Lane, it's going to explode all over the place, thus leaving me a nice mess to clean up. That, or it'll be too lazy to do anything and I'll have to prod it a good hundred times. Either way, I need to get on the ball. Anyone have any extra motivation on hand? Anyone? Rawr.

Wow, my blogs are pretty boring, no? I blame my pent up imagination. IT'S ALL YOUR FAULT.

Someday I will be as talented as this kid and I will apply said talents to my BLOG. XD

Ode to Finding Contentment in Life

I have discovered something.

I have discovered that when you're happy, and you make a conscious effort to be happy... good things come your way. Isn't that just special? Life seems terrific right now, and I couldn't be happier or more thankful. Sure, bad days like to show their nasty heads once in a while (last night at work, for example) but they seem pretty insignificant in light of the good days. And why waste time feeling pissed off? That has NEVER made me feel better about anything. I realize that I sound like someone that you'd typically hate--someone who's bright and bubbly and likes to sprinkle fairy dust on anyone who walks by... but I truly feel blessed. And thankful. And wonderful. And to be honest, part of me wonders if I'm feeling this way because I'm actually starting to grow up--maturing a bit. Hmm. I don't think there'll ever be a time when I won't be silly and child-like, but I do have this greater sense of importance all of a sudden. It's kinda cool.

In lighter news, school's approaching at a rapid rate, which is one thing I'm trying to stay positive about. It's going to be pretty weird going to school without all of my classmates (especially Dani, my wombmate), but luckily I've made some pretty sweet friends that are younger than me, and I know that there's fun to be had with them. *pokes Abby, Emily and Mindy* (even though Mindy's going to Northern Ireland! D:)

I'm in a terrific Harry Potter mood and most of it probably has to do with the fact that my sister Kristin and I geek out in front of her television every night, magicking up her screen with Harry Potter Lego for the Wii. You don't even KNOW how much fun this stinking game is! Sure, it's for children, but COME ON. It's Harry Potter... and Lego's... are you ever too old for either?! NO. And besides, it's caused me to pull the ole bricks out and crack the covers open again. My oh my how I've missed the wonderful world of Harry Potter. It's been far too long, I tell you! Oh, and speaking of the wonderful world of Harry Potter, Courtney and I are going to the theme park come December!!!!!!! SQUEEE! :O I honestly mean it when I say I'll be the girl that's sobbing in the corner of The Three Broomsticks, butterbeer in hand. Dream come true, man--DREAM COME TRUE. ^U^

You know, I've been wondering for a while now... emoticons. What are peoples thoughts on them? Do they belittle conversation? Do they add excitement? Personally, I think they're supah cute, however I'm not in favor of them appearing in every sentence. That's just ridonkulous.

Hmmm. Feeling pretty mellow. Guess we'll leave it at that for tonight.

"But I don't want to go among mad people," Alice remarked. "Oh, you can't help that," said the Cat: "we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad." "How do you know I'm mad?" said Alice. "You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldn't have come here."
