I'm here.

Sorry folks, I have quite literally checked out lately.  Most of my writing consists of tearfilled and depressing letters, so you have all been spared.  Be joyful.

The good news is that I got in to Goddard College!  I was getting really nervous there for a while, especially since everything seemed so last-minute.  (The application deadline was March 1st and the semester begins March 31st!)  But, this is a good thing.  I am really pumped and only slightly intimidated.  I can't imagine the sheer talent I'm going to be surrounded with during my time there!  I hope I can measure up.  With any luck I'll find myself really inspired and can finally put the crap going on in my life aside and begin work on my novel again.  I've been told my hesitation is "all in my head", but I find it difficult to write a love story when my own love life is falling apart.  Everything I've tried to write has fallen flat.

I went to Burlington, Vermont a week (two weeks, now?  time flies...) ago with my friend Mike.  We went to the Ben & Jerry's factory, the Vermont Teddy Bear Factory, walked around downtown on a fruitless search for boots, and went to a maple sugar farm.  It was an interesting weekend in that Mike assumed I would shop for hours in downtown Burlington, and I actually blew through it in like...two hours?  That includes the time we were stopped for lunch.  The only thing we bought were Yankee Candles.  I guess I'm not much of a shopper anymore!

Mike & I also went to Sonic for the first time last weekend.  It wasn't as great as what I had expected, but it was cool to try something new, and I definitely want to go back to try some of their dessert shakes.

I also am ecstatic to report that I FOUND MY FAVORITE BOOTS!  (Notice that I am more excited about boots than I am at getting into college.  What does that say about me?)  Don't ask me where they were, the answer is obvious and highly embarrassing.

Also, I have an appointment to get permanent makeup done next week.  My mother and I are getting eyeliner tattooed on.  I am very excited but also very nervous about the pain factor!  Let's hope it's not as bad as they say.  :)  I will definitely be blogging about the whole experience!

OMG permanent eyeliner!?!?! I always wanted to do it, but I'm wicked scared of it, since it's so close to your eyes. Let me know how it goes!!!
