hello dear friends.
not that I wanna give excuses for so severely pushing the blog to the back burner… but…
holy cow. life be CRAZY up in this piece, homies.
in case anybody missed the memo…. since I… actually haven’t posted it on the blog, so unless you know me in real life, you would have missed it…. I’m HOME! I said goodbye to Texas a week ago and Utah has opened its non-humid arms to welcome me in, and then swallowed me whole.
and I mean that in the most literal sense, because I haven’t even had time to unpack until today. I only finished doing that like.. 1.5 hours ago. can I get a HALLELUJAH for no more suitcase living?!
FINE you guyz.. I’ll do it myself. HALLELUJAH!!!!!!!!
I packed up, cleaned, got my Volvo fixed only just in time (after nearly the whole FREAKING summer. F that noise.), said goodbye to my Del Sol friends 😦
and to this:
after most of the day, we made it across Texas to El Paso, almost got STUCK in El Paso because Lisa’s car was upset about driving too fast, so after much anxiety-ridden deliberation and inspection at Firestone, we drove slower and made it to Albuquerque, stayed the night in the most comfortable hotel beds ever, and drove.
made pit stops, complete with bathroom stall reading:
and then New Mexico started getting real pretty. and I started loving the scenery.
but then I remembered that I had been driving for TWO DAYS straight and that my book on CD (“The Color Purple” -weird/sad/raw/interesting/gross/good) was long over and that I wanted to kill myself.
so what did I do?
I drove some more.
I mean seriously guyz, I swear was suffering like a freaking pioneer by myself in that air-conditioned luxury sedan with all of my many possessions jammed in all around me eating treats and drinking Coke Zero. skraight up torture.
anyway, you get my point. I finally made it. went straight to Gram’s for a little family partying, and then home at last. but I started work the next day and school on Wednesday, so pretty much I don’t know what I was thinking doing that to myself, because by the time Friday rolled around I was so dead that I probably looked like a zombie.
but don’t get me wrong… the busyness is not all just from suck. it’s from fun stuff too. like hangin with fam, seeing friends, going to a concert, watching Jersey Shore (ha), going to Ute Fan Fest 2011 and meeting the football players.. my life is not bad, guyz.
now somebody help me not feel overwhelmed when I think about school and work equaling 12 hours gone M-F.
but probably the most exciting part of my life?
that’s how many until I go to freaking NEW ZEALAND, to see my love.
and I have never been more excited/anxious for anything in my life.
okay so…. now it’s somehow 1:15am? what? I’m going to freaking sleep.
goodnight boys and girls.
I love you.
