i remember how nice it was to have friends i talked to almost weekly, and i had no idea who you were, other than your jobs, favorite bands or boy problems.
and i love keeping up with my girls that will always be home to me (erin, lacey, erica).
however, i've moved permanently to another blog.
feel free to comment at will. you don't need to sign in or anything. i just kind of forgot about this little blog, and i've gone and created another one like a silly person.
hearts to you all.
so i've moved in finally to a cozy little apartment in memphis.
i love it.
i've been here a week, but i've been working with my high schoolers all week at camp, so it's been crazy busy. now that my internet is hooked up and i am caught up on sleep, i can update.
i don't really have much to say, other than decorating an empty apartment is something i didn't realize would be so time-consuming. i love the idea of settling in, though. hopefully i will be in this apartment for the next 2 years, so i have time to actually live somewhere longer than 9 months.
yay for being a grown up.
boo for bills, bills, bills.
(the song, and the harsh reality of life.)
i miss auburn, and it shows in my living room. my photo collage of auburn and my big ole' picture of a cheerboy waving an AU flag in the endzone at the florida game hangs over my fireplace.
nothing will ever be that great place, though. and i'm glad.
memphis is starting to grow on me, though. i'm taking my first trolley ride downtown tomorrow to see the sites. wish me luck.
a few things i love right now:
dr. pepper floats.
friends that never go away, even when i do.
that's all. i'm pretty happy.
gosh. i hate being in between.
i'm completely moved out of jacksonville/anniston, i have no where to stay when i visit auburn and i haven't moved in the apartment in memphis yet. i'm pulling my clothes out of boxes when i need them and packing them away when i pull them out of the clean laundry.
i'm practically a nomad.
except i think they are more dirty.
at least i got a new klosterman book today, so i'll be up all night reading that one. yeah. take that potter-heads. i mean, i'm not making fun. i love you all so. i'm just not all about the hp like 85 percent of the world.
that's all thats on my mind now. well, it's not, but it's all i feel like unleashing to the black and white void that is pleonast.com.
alright kids. update on life time, as promise. i'll hit all the bases and maybe you'll care. even if you don't, it gives me a chance to start all over, so here we go.
school.well, i graduated from auburn. i definitely have withdrawals but there's always football season, right? i'll be one of those alums who go back and buy $6 lemonade at toomers, sweatshirts for all my family members and take pictures in front of the tree or samford hall.
now, i'm getting ready to move to MEMPHIS for grad school in journalism. it's a 2-year deal. it's an assistantship, so they are paying my tuition and giving me $$$ each month. during the day, i will be working with inner-city kids to teach them the basics of journalism and working at a newspaper and i'll be taking my classes at night. i'm pretty pumped about it. it's no auburn, but i'm ready for change.
work.wednesday is my last day of my summer internship. i've been at the anniston star all summer and it has been pretty great. it's a well-known paper in journalism world, and it's they greatest paper in the state, hands down. i've loved the staff and the other interns i've met since i've been there. but enough about work.
boy.after going back and looking at the previous posts, i realize a lot has changed... daniel and i broke up at the end of last summer. to avoid a long story about nothing, i'll just say that we decided that we were moving in different directions and it's better that we are apart now. he's completely happy with that, and i'm glad for him and the opportunities he has now.
as for me, i'm completely fine not attached to anyone right now. god has bigger plans for me and my life right now and when the right guy comes along, i'm sure he'll be great. meanwhile, i need to get my life together and take care of myself for a while.
so, in summation.
i'm 21, recent college grad, single and i have the world ahead of me. i can go anywhere and do anything with nothing really holding me back. it's like 10 percent scary, but more exciting than anything. memphis seems like a cool place to hang my hat for a couple of years. it will be weird going somewhere completely new and not knowing a single person, but i kind of need it at the point in my life. a fresh start, maybe.
alright. i'm finished here. i hope life is good for all of my long lost friends out there.
