let's see, where to begin...
it's been summer for about a week and a half now, and being in college park was a good idea. except i didnt think i would actually miss the boro so soon, but i do. technically, im just really missing my brother recently, which is not usual. i mean, i miss him during the year, but not to the point where i think about him a lot. ive been talking to him more this past week or so, and its really made me sad that i'm not around a lot for him. i try to be, but it's not easy - especially when he's a 13 boy who doesn't really like talking on the phone or even talking about life to anyone other than his friends. there had been talk of him coming to visit me this summer, and i finally called my parents and made them buy him a plane ticket - so june 14 he'll be here! and then a few weeks later at the beach. i wish my car was here. i would go home a few weekends that i wasnt working to see him.
college park is pretty empty right now, since summer session 1 doesn't start til next monday, but hopefully then itll pick up some. ive been thinking about signing up for a summer class, but just out of boredom. i have friends that move back in this weekend, and itll be so so good to see them - esp michele. its so funny that one of my residents has become such a good friend - i seriously tell her just as much as i tell my closest friends, and im so glad that we can be real friends now that shes not a resident.
i get paid on friday, but its technically only the first part of my food stipend. therefore, i should spend it on my next grocery trip. but i really want to get a bunch of books for the summer, and a few crafty things. im contemplating making a sophomore scrapbook to keep with my freshman one, but i didnt take nearly as many pictures this year. also, im still so poor that buying scrapbooking stuff would break the bank. i'll just go wander around a craft store. if i can find one. and if i can find a car.
i have high expectations for this summer. i need to make a list of things that need to be completed before august:
-visit all the smithsonians
-paddleboat on the tidal basin
-become friends with my staffs
-explore maryland and find a future home
-get all three of my boro loves to cp
-make enough money to study abroad next summer
-learn how to properly sail
-read all the books on My List
good for now. im sure things will be added as i go.
so hurry up and get here. <3
