Vroom Vroom

Things are changing rather quickly.

I received the official "Congratulations, you've graduated! The diploma's in the mail" e-mail today. Since classes ended I've been thinking of myself as a graduate (I knew what my grades were and that everything was in order). Still, it's kind of weird to know that it's officially official. I'm not sure there's any point in the last 7 years that I really fully believed I would reach this point. I got me a BA.

To commemorate the official plunge into adulthood... Is this when it happens? Or did it happen already? Is there really a moment when a person becomes an adult? Or does it happen gradually? Will I wake up one day at 50 something and think "well, there's the last bit of childness gone"? God, I hope not. Anyway. The point is I bought a (almost new) car. That's a very grown up thing to do. Here's a picture:
It's a cute car. I love it.

Back to the adult thing. I refuse to wake up and have no childness left. I will never be too old to run through sprinklers. Well, I might have to shuffle through them at some point. Old ladies aren't always much for running.

I'm kind of all over the place with my thoughts at the moment. I should be sleeping, so that doesn't help. I've been at a going away celebration thing of sorts all night. A good friend of mine is heading off to grad school in Ohio. It's going to be weird without him. Or maybe they will be much less weird. He is, after all, one of the strangest people I know.

That's enough for now. I'm going to stop thinking and just dream now.

Are You Still There?

Or perhaps it's more appropriate to ask if I'm still here. But I don't need to ask that question because wherever I am, I am there. Tautology FTW.

I miss writing. The compulsion to write is still present, and there's at least one moment every day that I say to myself, "I should sit down and write as soon as I get home." Of course once I get home, I get right down to not writing.

I have lots of not writing to get done right now, but I thought I'd pop in on my blog and let the internet know that I'm still here. And to catch the virtual world up on my life.

I've just graduated. That's my big news. Well, really, technically, I haven't officially graduated yet. Grades are posted on the 16th. Assuming I've passed all my classes (which I have, with mostly flying colors) that's when I will actually graduate. That's when they'll mail my diploma. The point is, I never have to take another undergraduate class again. Yay!

Other things that have happened in the last... 8 (shit) months:
I went to DC for a Lindy Echange and it was fantastic. Words: Battle of Big Bands.
I've started DJing swing dances. That's fun.
I'm about to (hopefully) start DJing Blues events.
I've become very disappointed with my health/weight and have intentions to fix that.
I've been single all year. But I'm now on kissing terms with a new boy. He's nice, but not terribly exciting. I hope he never has a reason to read this.

I hope I will get around to writing more now that I don't have to worry about class. I've been considering making this blog some sort of themed thing. I like the idea of making it a collection of lists. Or maybe, if I do that, I should start a fresh blog.

Anyway, I miss writing.
