Well, here I am three days from birthday. This is the last of the important birthdays, not that I have been very big on birthdays… but seriously the 21st birthday is the true signal of adulthood, not because you can buy alcohol but because after 21 no one cares how old you are. That is alright by me, people already think I am at least 23… I’m not sure if that is a good or a bad thing. Never-the-less, I will be going out as the clock strikes 12:00am, it should be interesting… especially since i have class the next day.
In other news: Jessica finally came home. This has been a homecoming that i have been waiting for all summer, now I have well rooted dislike for Mexico… and now it isn’t just because it is hot and sunny there. i drove Jess back to Bend, which, by-the-way, is not a fun drive when you are tired and it pitch black outside. Coming over the pass we could see the glow of the forest fires which was kind of cool but little did I know two days later my route home would be cut off those fires. I can’t say I was sad about not being able to go back to Eugene, I got to stay and hang out in Bend with Jessica and her family… no complaints from me. I was hoping the fires would interfere with my plans to head home, I must have an amazing ability to control major fires. The only problem with staying at Jessica’s was that my shoulders got very burned with all of the swimming we did. I’ve gone through the painful redness stage and now I’m in the slightly entertaining stage of peeling, unfortunately that stage has the bonus ability to itch like no tomorrow. Looking at my back, i feel like a leper… no offense to any lepers out there. But it was well worth it, I got to spend time with my best gal.
Other than all of that, life is pretty slow and ordinary. Still looking for a roommate… I think that bears repeating: Still looking for a roommate. hint hint. Until I feel inspired again…
Well, it has been a long while since I last wrote on the webpage, I blame this solely on moving, finals, papers, working, and now commuting. Since my last update i have moved into my new apartment (read this as: off campus), I now own a vehicle (’97 CRV)… but the worst of all is that Jessica has been in Mexico for three weeks now with three weeks to go. Add to this that everyone else is out of the country, my parents and Meagan have gone, once again, to Newfoundland. Because of this i rarely have human contact except from work and the occasional trip to the supermarket. I have also been running four times a week and according to my calculations, in June I ran about forty miles. Not bad if i say so myself.
As it is summer which means that another academic year has come to a close which for me means not only no school for a while but also that i am now a Senior. I am a mere forty credits away from graduating with my B.A., I find this astounding because I remember just like yesterday moving into the dorms and here i am almost done with school. Time sure has flown by, i hope the rest of my life isn’t this quick to pass by.
In late August I am making a guest appearance in New York State, which should be fun… i have always wanted to go to New York City so I will be meeting up with my friend Greg (From W. Falls), I’ll send post cards. Other than that my life is pretty mundane right now… I expect life to pick up a little bit more when people start coming back from outside of the country, mainly Jessica. Until then…
