I'm leaving tomorrow morning to Idaho. I won't have internet, that I know of, so I'll be spending my time skiing, petting dogs, and taking pictures. Have a merry Christmas, everyone!

Stars on my Ceiling

I've managed to stay off the internet for quite a few days now, I'm kind of proud of myself. At the same time, I could have given myself some entertainment if I'd somehow thought of the internet (I'm not sure why it slipped my mind).

Today, in an e-mail from my school concerning the construction that is, in a way, taking over a large portion of the campus, I read the following:

"Dedicated flagger will control pedestrian traffic flow"

The flagger in the place they are referring to have to be very dedicated. They control the "pedestrian traffic flow" for about three to five trucks, and especially now, I can't imagine there are all that many people walking around campus. I've always wondered what a flagger does while they have nothing to direct.

Anyway, I thought that since I am not really doing anything at all, I really have no excuse not to post anything.

Don't you think "stars on my ceiling" would make an excellent story or book title? Maybe I'm the only one that thinks of things that way.

Tomorrow I'm going to go on an adventure. I'm tired of being a hermit that hides inside all day. I love winters, why am I trying to hide from them? Mostly though, I need to take pictures, it's more than a desire, it is a need. And there really isn't anything I'm interested in taking pictures of inside this house.

Isn't the light in this photo beautiful?

Maybe I'm looking at everything wrong. Maybe I don't really know anything at all.

My fingers look so fat.

Thinking Hard

When it comes to giving gifts, I'm just plain awful. I always am looking for the perfect thing, something to show someone exactly how much I care for them. That can be a hard thing to find. As the holidays are approaching, I've had to start thinking of gift ideas for people, it isn't going all that well. I know that I'll find something for everyone on my list, but it's a difficult thing for me to do. And most of the time I feel that my gifts aren't really everything I want them to be. However, I do love wrapping things. Give me a pile of gifts and I will wrap them all, I don't guarantee their attractiveness, but they usually turn out decently and I enjoy myself.

Stupidity and Excitement

Let's have a discussion of some of the many stupid things I have said lately (some of them may have to be put into context):
"The point is, you don't look creepy weird." -to Shawn
"That isn't a real mountain, it doesn't go above treeline and there isn't any snow. What's wrong with you?" -not so recent, last year when visiting southern Oregon with a southern Oregonian
"I don't close my blinds because I don't want to live in a cave, like some people." -to the person whose room I happened to be standing in (while their blinds were closed)

The point is, I say stupid, mean things. I don't mean to, I don't like coming off as mean, but I do sometimes. It's something I used to try to keep from doing, but more and more I've realised that that is just part of who I am sometimes. As unfortunate as that can be at times. I don't know why I'm discussing this. Mostly I'm trying to kill time while my sheets dry, I've got a while.

In other, not very exciting news, I fit my hair into a ponytail today! It's only an inch and a half or so long and most of my hair is in pins, but the point is... it's in a ponytail!

I guess I'll get back to getting ready to go to Bend tomorrow. It's not very exciting though, but neither is the internet right now.

Today I cleaned everything, well I'm still cleaning, but it will all be done before I go to bed. Right now I am drinking chai (yes, I do somehow plan on falling asleep later) and just finished putting up some Christmas lights, even though I am leaving for Bend tomorrow. Christmas gives me mixed feelings, I have a lot of really great childhood memories from the holidays, but lately, they aren't always so great. But we won't get into that. I'm not sure what I'm going to do about gifts this year, I love giving gifts (even though I feel like I am really horrible at it) but I'm really low on funds right now. Any ideas? Anyone?

Busy, busy

It's been a busy busy week, but it's all over with now. My finals were finished with this morning, so no more worrying about getting things done and studying. It feels so nice to have it all done with, though I have to admit, I am dreading my next term. I'm not going to have much time for anything, but I have three and a half weeks to relax and not worry about it. I can't wait to get back to Bend, there is snow on the ground right now. I am envisioning a winter break full of snowball fights, sledding, skiing, snowman building, and maybe a little ice skating. I'm not really sure how much of that I'll actually do, but I can always dream, right? I'm also hoping to see if I can get that canon camera up there to work, but to do that I need to get film... which I've been meaning to do since September, but with no more school, I might actually get around to it.

Color: Grey

Maybe there is a connection.
Maybe grey is the right color for this time.
Maybe I was right when I wanted to be wrong.

Thinking is not a good idea tonight. I'm getting lost. In my missing head. It's so foggy in there.

So Fantastic!

Just popping in before the studying extravaganza begins... Fantastic Mr. Fox: not only one of my favorite books anymore; now... one of my favorite movies. I can't contain my excitement as I was just looking at screen shots. I think everyone needs to go see it! NOW!
