All right, so I guess I will admit I have been slacking on the blog in a way. I have been auctioning off guest blog spots to the biggest whiners and could have lined up quite a few for the coming week. Instead I am going to blog now, rather than work on my last big thing before the semester is over. I should be doing my 6-8 page Shakespeare paper focusing on performative power in King Lear, Henry V and The Tempest, but I'd rather ramble on here for 3 paragraphs about nothing of huge importance.
My gosh I am so thankful for my family and friends. I had a conversation with Mary Frances on the phone the other night and she said what she always says, "I just wish that we could all go to the same college and all live together so we would never be apart and we wouldn't have to worry about anything." This always makes me laugh because she is totally being serious. As wonderful as this sounds, I think I totally appreciate my family because I don't get to see them enough. The things that we reminisce about the most are the memories that we made almost 5 years ago, but each time I see them it is a total cliche: It's like we've lived together our whole lives.
I cherish my college friends. This year has been such a great one. I know my family will be around and easily accessible for the long haul, but that is not promised with friends who spread out to who know's where. For this reason I am glad that I don't have the temptation of only hanging with my favorite sisters and cousins, because I wouldn't have otherwise become friends with the people that I spend the most time with at school now.
Was this just a big jumbled, weak blog? lol. I am not doing a good job of using my words effectively this morning. I am mostly distracted by my Shakespeare paper which exists in the Microsoft Word window right behind this internet browser. Continually whispering my name. So...back to it. lol
