summer? whats that?

needless (sp?) to say, i've been lazy. sitting on the couch, sitting in my comfy chair, sitting on my bed. oh yeah. lazy. reading, watching movies, endless stupid, mind-numbing television has become my daily routine. mix that in with work and college preperation and you've got my summer. it's been great staying up till 1 am and sleeping in till 11 am. but hey, thats all gonna come to an end. hallmark is anxiously waiting its 31 boxes of christmas ornaments. we got the display section in today. i am gonna be happy to be keeping busy day and night now. hopefully kicking off those extra pounds. i've been going to the YMCA pretty often with one of my best friends from high school (i LOVE that i can say that now...i am no longer a high schooler....yes!). i've lost about two pounds, but still...its something :)

i cant wait to go to the beach again with the fam. get away from this place called fairfield. sometimes you need to get the heck away just to appreciate it when you get back. *sigh* cant that just be now?! i NEED a vacation.

thats another thing. how come everyone assumes that teenagers are just good-for-nothings? i work. yes, im lazy. but i am a human. i pay for all my stuff...for the most part. i just dont get it. they were teenagers once too. dont they remember...they are claim to anyway.


so, here sitting in my lazy chair, at 11:30 pm EST. i wish you all a fabulously lazy summer. with a little dash of excitment. and hopefully no one to ruin a fantastic day with bad humor.

now what?

as most of you know, i have graduated. i have no pictures to post, no awesome words of how excited i am to be moving on because well, im not sure i want to. i have loved being a highschool student which may be just one reason i want to be a high school english teacher. here i am sitting at my desk with my new fancy schmancy laptop comtemplating my english essay for college (ALREADY?!) i have already taken my math placement exam and have pretty much decided my future. how can that NOT scare anyone? my senior year of high school could not have been better. i couldnt have asked for better friends or teachers. (well, maybe one or two) :)
i have an awesome family who loves and supports me and i am glad that i was able to spend my senior year having some fun. i love my job at hallmark and am getting hyped for the christmas boxes to be arriving within days. :) (oh, christmas in june/ i've missed you so) i cant wait for orientation, but then the reality of the situation will be realized. i will defiently miss highschool...not the insane drama i've had. but the amazing realtionships i have been able to develop with friends that may seem not so my type. i have loved aiding for my english teacher- i got to see the behind-the-scenes :) (in fact...i WAS the behind-the-scenes coordinator) to those who are just entering highschool---make the most of it. but dont feel pressured to join clubs or anything. i have no regrets. just join one. you dont want to look like a total loser. :)
highschool--you've been great.
college--im a little afraid of you, but im sure it'll be better be.
