summer, oh summer

i never really liked summer. and of course i never really liked school either. but im not really good with keeping in touch or anything so i never got to hang out with my friends from school during the summer either. i was never in, and i never had that core group of people to spend time with. and now, when i finally have great friends at school what happens? we all come from different states and need to make money for next semester anyway so we cant hang out. life is funny that way. but at least they are good with keeping in touch!
anyways, right now im sitting at the student center. bored and alone. i cant get the speakers to play on this compter so its REALLY quiet here. im already done with two books and its only WEDNESDAY!
tonight is church and im excited. i miss wednesday night church (we go to a home bible study at school) worship here is different not as many "new" songs, and thats a "groove" i need to get used to again.
God bless!

so school is over.
my best friend graduated from college
my sister graduated from high school
i need to look for a job, clean my room, go through all of the JUNK that i have and chunk it, start working out
and watch JEOPARDY! i love it when they dont know the answers but i do!

i miss my roommates ALOT. but i know, in my heart that tonight michelle will be watching Greys Anatomy. That after it we will call each other and talk about it. that amanda will text me if she sees someone who has committed crimes of fashion or if there is just something funny going on. and that ashley will have a marvelous time in Greece this summer and do a wonderful job in her final projects next year.


i also have TONS of movies to catch up on, i cant wait to see my neighborhood Blockbuster guy and see how his semester went!

so now, im off to get started on that list. after all, im going to england next fall!
