Blog

Some people may be wondering why I don't update as often as I used to.

Well, here's the reason. I just can't get gung-ho about blogging the way I was a couple of months ago.

Maybe there was much more going on in the blogger world than there is now. Maybe I still feel kind of betrayed by the Kaycee stuff. Or maybe there isn't much going on in my life.

Actually, there is quite a bit going on right now. I am about to move into a duplex in the city. I am really looking forward to that. A chance to get away from the parents (who, BTW are driving me up the wall and across the ceiling).

A chance to get away from this small town.

But back to the blogger.

I have been reading my earlier entries. I have to admit, I cringe at some of them now. I think I was trying to be too much like a "Cutesy".

Maybe the guy on Metafilter had a point when he said that I was a "serious dork".

I think I have changed quite a bit this summer. I think I am finally becoming an adult.
Or, maybe I am deluding myself again.

::Sigh::

Seems like Eric isn't gonna update his site for awhile....

Too sad, too. I really enjoy reading it. I hope everything is going OK for him.
Have a great break, buddy.

Back from Kansas City

Well, I am back.

If I am not writing a lot, that's because we didn't do a heck of a lot.

I brought some clothes (from Old Navy, no less) and some other stuff. I got to visit my brother. And I got to witness my legs falling off from walking so much. (Just kidding.)

But that's about it.

One thing I learned, though: A casino is probably not the best place to try to meet people.
Think about it.

Vacation: Day 2
(subtitled: Athsma and Ball Games and Other Stuff)

Well, I am having fun so far. Last night I went to a ball game. I went to see the Oklahoma RedHawks. It was fun. They lost, though. Grrrrrrr.

Right now I am having trouble breathing. See, when I inhale (not marijuana, silly!) I feel my lungs tighten if I try to breathe too deeply. Maybe I am asthmatic. I dunno. I hope not, because that would be a Bad Thing. But we'll see.

Well, tomorrow it's off to Kansas City. Programming Note: I won't blog again until Thursday night. I won't be where I can update. Sigh.

I will, however, keep a log of my travels. I will share my thoughts when I get back. That will have to do.

Buh-bye for now! See ya Thursday!!!!!!!!!

Vacation: Day 0.5

Well, today officially starts my vacation. Vacation from what, you may ask?

Vacation from my hectic life.

Here is my itenerary for the week:

Tomorrow: Go see the RedHawks play in Oklahoma City
Sunday: ??
Monday: Leave for Kansas City, MO to see my brother
Tuesday: Still in KC
Wednesday: Still in KC
Thursday: Return from KC
Friday: Get ready for my grandfather's 80th Bday party
Saturday: My grandfather's 80th Bday party
Sunday: ??

So I have a pretty packed week this next week.

Today, I kicked the madness off by going to the mall. I didn't buy much of anything; I just looked around. I also went to the Chinese buffet to eat. Yum. THey had all you can eat peel and eat shrimp, plus all sorts of other goodies.

I read my fortune cookie. It said,

"Someone special admires you."

Hmmmmm....I wonder who that could be?

Anyhoo, I have compiled a list of things to do while on vacation:

1. Make at least one new friend.
2. Relax and not worry about anything for at least 5 minutes. (A more noble goal than may first appear)
3. Not blow all my money in a casino
4. Continue my collection of cool postcards
5. Renew my friendship with my cousins (whom I never get to see)

I may add to this list as the week goes by, but this is a good start.

Perspective

Ya know, I was compiling a list of things to gripe about.
You know, my usual complain-blog.

Anyhoo, I was web-surfing (my usual) when I came across this article. It's about a girl who lost her father in a plane crash a couple of months ago.

And I'm thinking: Here I am, bitching about not having a job, my parents, my hair, etc., while this girl my own age just lost her father, her best friend. She is missing him horribly.

I am so lucky, and yet I have the nerve to complain.

It makes me wonder what the heck I'm doing here.

So, no gripe posts today. (Sorry.) I just can't justify it.
Too tired....to think.....

Must go...to bed......

Must....not...stay...a..w..a..k..e..........

Lucid Dreaming

I actually had a lucid dream the other day.....I think.

Wow.

Let me begin....

I dreamed I was in my bed, and I was trying to get up. I could not wake up. I remember hearing this squealing sound, like some kind of alarm. Suddenly, for some reason, I knew I was dreaming.

Now, I don't give myself "reality tests" or anything, so I wasn't sure how I knew. But I distinctly remember thinking...."Ya know, as long as I am asleep, might as well enjoy myself!"

So, I decided to fly. I flapped my arms, and flew...through the walls of my house (another sign I had to be dreaming!), overlooking my neighborhood, I even remember seeing a couple of birds.

I remember I was trying to get somewhere, in a hurry, but I wasn't sure where.

I landed. And (this is weird) I tried to fly again. This time, I was airborne for a couple of seconds, but then I landed again. After that, I woke up.

Guess I need a little more practice. :-)

Now, I am not a new-age-y type person. In fact, far from it. On the other hand, I do believe in the power of dreams. I believe that they can tell you things about yourself that you don't normally know.

I think I may start a dream blog.

Not a bad idea, huh??
