just a few things:
i took a big step toward the future today. positive or negative result, it was an amazing opportunity to get at my stage in life, and school.
i have been stressed about finances, like most college kids in the summer, but i have a very special person in my life to make things go a little smoother. (ka-stamp)
the summer job is probably what is driving me the most bonkers. i just cant handle it right now. i really dont like it. at all. but if all goes well, i will, hopefully, not be required (by the bank) to sit behind that desk much longer.
i have accomplished a few things in my absence:
i finished 100 ways, i highly recommend it, i love that book!
i read the ap stylebook cover to cover, one of my friends told me to day that im a total dork for doing it.
i have made a significant dent -- like its hard -- in strunk and white's elements of style fourth edition. (get a new one moose... i will still love you if you keep your third edition though...)
i have put augusten burroughs' dry on hold for now as i am filling my brain with tips to be a better editor. but, as soon as i finish the elements, its back to the crazy life of the author of running with scissors! (i recommend the book and the movie.)
i have the first disk of sex and the city in my entertainment center as i write this, but in my book obsession, if thats what you would call it, i have watched little to no TV. except for brian williams, mmm. haha.
i hope all is well with everyone.
and if there is one thing i can say of my time away, its this:
no matter how bad it is, something will come along and brighten your day.
you can quote me on that later if you want...
