It's been awhile...

Hi all. It's been a little busy on my end. Not sure exactly what Kris is up to, as she's approximately 256 miles away, and I'm still in the Middle of Nowhere. But it's been good for me, I've had some time to sit back and look at Beckoned and really think. And if only my laptop were actually in my possession, I would be able to write, because my fingers have been itching. But there are way too many things to do right now. I leave home to go back to college in six days. This is truly bittersweet. I'm so excited to be somewhere else, where family isn't constantly setting curfews (hello, I'm 20!) or asking where I am, and I can relax without being grumbled at. Also, writing is so much easier without my parents constantly asking me what I'm writing about every time they hear my keys click. What, you want me to read every sentence aloud to you? BUT - as excited as I am to be back in my own apartment and everything, there are things that I will miss terribly. 
First on that list, the world's most adorable five-year-old, and inspiration of all my joy, the Terrible AbbyDooZer! Rawr! She's the sweetest, sassiest, most hug-able little thing ever. I'm trying to convince her that it would be perfectly acceptable to move in with her Kessie. But she's stubborn.

Second, the beach. I mean, I live RIGHT on it. I always have. It is so hard to be away from the water. I think that's just something only someone in my situation could understand. It becomes a part of you, and a part of how you are and - woops, let me bring that to a screeching halt. You get the picture, no need for me to get all mopey.
I will also miss my dog, Roxie Hart. But she'll be moving up just as soon as The Boy gets settled in his new place. (Oh yeah, The Boy is going with me this year. I'm so excited!)

 I'm gonna miss my family too. And my hometown. And the stupidly comforting feeling of being in my horrendously lime green room (I picked the color out in grade school). But I need to get out, clear my head, go to class, write a book... live. I'll keep you posted on how it goes :)

Till then, I remain somewhat yours.

  1. It's nice to have you back! I've never seen a dog with two names, but it suits her. You live on that beach? Wow. It's gorgeous... I'd never leave.

  2. its good to get away from the family - no matter how much you love them a break makes it better :)

  3. Actually, Roxie's full name is Roxie Oxy Cotton Candy Apple Pi-'napple Upside Down Cake, Cherries. It started off as a joke and I've never been able to live it down.
