Hello world

Unfortunately, my room is worse than ever - thus the lack of updates in that department. But there are a lot of good things happening in my life right now.

Number one: I have a decent idea of what I want to do with my life. I was sitting in class one day, and one of the vague notions that have been flitting around in my head solidified and focused. Now I just have to convince someone that they want to pay me to do it.

My grandmother is celebrating her 90th birthday, and I get to be there. The being there part is not as easy as it sounds, but we're talking about good things at the moment.

I'm probably going to get to have my grandfather's 95 year old cousin, who is one of the most amazing people ever, all to myself in the backseat on the long car ride home.

My folks are doing really well in the new city - settling in, making friends, and enjoying the lovely weather and the trees.

My younger sisters are both being civil - even friendly - toward me.

I've managed to finish a couple of sewing projects. It is always a good feeling to put something together, finish it, and then be able to handle the finished project and see what was done. It's nice when the abstractness of school starts to get to me.

I can make notes on my flute. I can't make very many in a row without my lungs seizing up, but it's coming. Baby steps...

After the terrible scare I had, and then the freaking out about having to make up for two missed weeks of class, I think I'll be alright in all of my classes this quarter.

Goodnight world

The time has come

to get my act together.

I'm messy by nature. However, I also like things orderly. These two aspects of my personality, predictably, clash. Unfortunately, the messy part currently has declared victory, moved in, and completely taken over in my bedroom. This has huge effects on the rest of my life. I'm constantly scattered, have a hard time finding things, usually end up rushed, and never have time to do anything. I'm frankly sick of it. So, I will be getting my bedroom, and my life, in order. It won't be easy, but over the next couple of months I will do it one step at a time.

Ah, the blog...

It seems like such a good idea, but then real life interferes. I've managed to not post for three whole months. My spidy sense tells me that this is not the way to develop a readership and become part of the community. Oh well, I'm a loner in life, why not in blog too.

And, as usual, I'm writing when I should be sleeping. It's only the first week of classes - far to early to get into the hard-core sleep deprivation that seems to be a required part of college life.

So much has changed in my life in those three months. Much of it, I can't talk about. Some is just so messy it doesn't need to see the light of day. Other is not mine to discuss. And some I would like to talk about but can't find words. The last is making me tear up saying that much about it. I'll just state it in my blunt fashion and if words decide to come...

My best friend's mother passed away just a few days ago. She was one of the most awesome ladies I've had the pleasure of knowing.

I can't
