Its amazing that my blog has suddenly gotten so much more traffic because I wrote about Kara Goucher and put up a picture from the Boston Marathon a couple weeks ago. Cool eh? I guess I should start mentioning more athletes and celebrities by name if I want traffic. Haha I’m surprised this is the first time this has happened in the 3 years I’ve been blogging.
I miss not having cable in my room. I can’t watch Chelsea Handler on Chelsea Lately anymore. Now I just will watch the podcasts. OR I could put more effort into going downstairs to see it. We’ll see. My summer plans keep changing so much, I do not see why the way I live wouldn’t change as well.
I’m currently (still) looking for a part time job. I am going to take a summer class in the interim so that I do not have to overload in the fall. I’m content with this. I’ll just focus on that class, working out, being creative, and having fun with my friends. I’m just having such a hard time adjusting to the fact that I won’t be working full time. I had the mindset that that is what I was going to do this summer for so long. I didn’t really think about the alternative and all the things I could do with my free time. My biggest problem is going to be money. I wanted the job so that I could pay for food and entertainment this summer and also in the fall. But, it looks as though I will not be able to make enough money to save. I’ll probably just do quickie jobs for the summer which will make for an interesting experience but its a lot more work to get those than a normal 9-5. See, with quickie jobs, you have to A) keep on top of these, B) get the good ones before other people, C) go to the Student Employment Office, D) work out a time with the employer, and E) figure out how to get to the place of work. This all takes more mental effort than going to the same place and doing the same thing day after day. But I think I will definitely get some cool stories out of it- “One summer I couldn’t get steady work so I did a bunch of odd jobs. I worked at conferences, cleaned people’s houses, painted, and participated in dream studies. Haha you’re only young once!” etc. This might help me with my novel.
Oh yes, I might write a novel. Its totally possible. I might start with short stories or something. But I figure, I’m creative, I’ve got time on my hands, why not?! I should take advantage of this clarity of mind. Well, I will have clarity of mind come next week after I run the weekend in Atlanta. Once that’s finished, I’ll be able to chill mentally. Its just a burden right now. Don’t get me wrong, its a burden I decided to take on and I’m happy to do it, but it is a huge responsibility nonetheless.
Tonight I had a personal dance workout party. It was spectacular. No really, you should’ve seen it. Haha I bet my housemates wondered what exactly I was doing. I listened to “Spice up your life,” “Golddigger,” “Fix it,” etc.
