Yes, yes, I know. I’m a bad blogger. I’m one of those people who gets wrapped up in life and doing little random things and sees blogging as something I can do “later”. If I say “I’ll blog later” long enough, a month goes by, and then another, and another, etc. Hence the reason why I’ve never kept a blog for long in the past. But that’s changing!
The trip to Shreveport was full of food, driving, and casinos. I won around $100, but got greedy at the blackjack tables and only left with sixty. Considering that the money I played with was given to me, I don’t consider it a loss. The photos will be up on Flickr soon…I took a photo in front of the million dollar wall, but I don’t like how I look in it. The stretched out wall of money makes me look stretched out, too, and I can’t have that. I’m hoping that I’m really not as big as I look in that photo. Maybe my Blackberry was playing some kind of joke on me? I hope so.
I also got to play with aunt and uncle’s insanely fat cat Snow. I can’t wait to get a cat of my own, which I can’t do until I get my own place. But anyway…Snow is “my” cat for now. I gave my aunt the vouchers for free cat food and some toys I got from Purina back in January, when I was positive I would be moving out into my own place in December. I should probably blog about my quest to get free things…it’s turned out quite nicely so far. But I’ll save that for another entry.
On the school front…things are ending, albeit more slowly than I’d like for them to. I have two papers and four exams to go, and don’t know if I’ll make it through. With the added pressure of my internship, I’m tired all the time. And frustrated. I want school to be over with NOW. Scratch that…yesterday. I don’t know if it’s senioritis or the fact that I’m finally finishing after all this time or what, but school needs to GTFO, now. I’d like to move on already. Am I grateful for the experiences? Yes. Am I glad I did this? Absolutely. Am I willing to kick puppies in the face if I don’t finish soon? You bet.
Regarding going abroad…it’s not looking so likely, for the moment. I’m no longer planning to move to Marrakesh, even though that’s really, really where I want to be. That’s not to say that I won’t ever go, just that I can’t do it right now.
And that’s all she wrote, for now. I wish I had the energy to say more, but I’m currently laying in bed with a bad case of vertigo. Everything is just spinning and spinning and spinning and spinning. You get the idea.
Peace out people,
