Oh my. It has been ages since my last entry and more than you could imagine has happened and I know I won't even begin to scrap the surface.
But perhaps the biggest thing is that I am no longer a teenager. I turned 20 last Friday. It was a good day overall. I was quite sad that I was not going to be able to celebrate my leap out of the teenage netherworld into "adulthood" with my family, but my friends made up for it. I was even thrown a surprise party which was a surprise. I had no idea it was happening. It was a good day.
And Mom was so sweet. She sent me two birthday cards each day the entire week before my birthday. It was adorable.
Midterms have been going well. I've had all but one. Done fairly decent on them.
I have a date this Thursday. Last night I was in Xandos when this guy and I kept making eye contact the whole time. When he got up to leave, Bre smiled at him and gave him a big wave and I turned around and smiled at him. He stopped and wrote his number on a piece of paper and brought it to me. I called him and we're going out Thursday. His name is Jason.
Jim is back. Don't remember if I told you or not. Randomly ran into him on the street last week when I was shopping for a suit (long story). He and I met for dinner tonight and we chatted and caught up on what's been going on. I told him basically EVERYTHING that's happened since he left. Everything from school, to my visit to Iowa in June, to the whole Tucker story. He told me about Italy and gave me some pictures to put on the site. I didn't realize how much I actually missed him until tonight when I was able to sit down and have a conversation with him again. It kinda felt like he was never gone. Like nothing had changed. It is good to have him back.
RENT was Sunday night. Used my 8 free tickets for naming the cow and took some B+B people as a small birthday celebration. It was fun.
I have a bed now! I bought a bed. After two months of sleeping on an air mattress....I have a bed! It is heavenly! All I need is someone to help me christen it ;-)
Damn, there is so much more to say, and I can't think of a damn thing.
Survivor ends tomorrow night. I don't know what I am going to do when it's over. It's the only hour of TV I watch per week. I am obsessed with that show and it is sick.
I bought pet frogs the other day. At the street fair. Two African Dwarf Frogs. They are cute. There is also a snail in the aquarium. It just sucks on the walls though. It's nice having a pet.
I scheduled my headshots. Very excited about that! Things are starting to happen that make me feel closer to my goal. Once I have headshots, I can type up a resume, and start sending them out. From there auditions. And from there, hopefully, a show. I can't believe it's happening. Only two years ago, I never would've believed that this could actually be happening to me. That my dream would be coming true. It was always everyone else who had their dreams come true.
I now know why their dreams came true, and mine never did. It was becasue Iowa was big enough to fulfill their dreams. Iowa was never able to fulfill mine, so mine never came true. It wasn't anything wrong with me, just that my future was never going to grow and thrive there. But now that I am here, things finally appear to be going my way. And who knows, those dreams of mine just may become realities.
On that happy note, I will stop now. And hopefully, I will update again soon.
