I Have a Hedgehog Named Beans

I'm sitting here and I really have nothing to say. I thought I would update because it has been a while. Life has been really good, really busy and hard at times but also just wonderful. I definitely don't get enough sleep (I took a two hour nap this afternoon and that doubled the total for the last 24 hours), definitely feel exhausted most of the time and have so much that needs to get done. But whatever. C'est la vie. I try to focus on the positive, and it's really not hard because there is so much good.

Let's see...I love people. I've been spending more time with people I don't know very well, and becoming friends with someone is just the best feeling. I really enjoy getting to know more people this year.

I love singing, and I'm going home this weekend to sing John Rutter's Requiem with my parents choir (for some reason I'm always singing with them, it's fun but I still don't think I'm enough of a grown-up to qualify, these people all have KIDS and stuff). It's a little sad to be leaving, though. I love going home, but I miss a lot at school when I leave, and the year is ending so quickly.

What else has been good? One of my friend in England who I've been in and out of contact with has recently been online more often, so we've been talking a lot in the last few days. This kind of goes along with the "getting to know people better" category. It's just so great talking to this friend who, really, I don't know all that well. I mean, we haven't seen each other in person in five years or something like that. So figuring out all the stuff we have in common is pretty awesome.

Let's see, I got elected as next year's Dorm Senator for the dorm I currently live in. I am excited for that position, but I'm kind of having trouble visualizing how busy I'll really be. Learning to prioritize and manage my time well is definitely a skill I've been working on this year, and I still slip up now and then (don't get me started! I pulled my first official allnighter last week = 40 hours awake and then I slept for 12). Anyway, I guess I'm just saying that I hope I stay on top of things as senator next year. I'm not too concerned about that at this point.

Finishing up (because I'm flying home in the morning and I still need to pack, holy crap is it really 2am?), in a moment of weakness I started a MySpace account. I've always been really against them and never wanted one, but the planets aligned or something and I succumbed to the dark side. If you want to check it out, it's Don't try to add me as a friend if I don't know you, because I probably won't accept it, but I thought I'd share the link anyway for some friendly stalkerage or whatever. Oh gosh, please no one actually stalk me, that's just creepy!

Random fact: Today the people who live above me threw some tacos at our window. What the crap?

Quote of the day: "Imagine you have a giant meat grinder stuck on your face." -Forrest Baird in a class lecture, in an attempt to explain Immanuel Kant's concept of the mind processing data. Apparently the bottom line is that we can't really see anything accurately for what it really is because we have this meat grinder in the way.

Okay...time to pack.
