Goodness. Gracious.

I didn’t realize how long it had been since I wrote.  I am so sorry followers, I didn’t mean to abandon you (that is, assuming anyone actually checks my blog on a regular basis.  Let me dream.).  School is, as usual, hectic.  I just finished submitting a bunch of college applications, and I’ve finally got some time to sit down and write a good, solid post.  So here goes.

First off, my boyfriend insists that I put a message from him in here (he’s sitting at my kitchen table finishing his own college apps).

“To all of Danielle’s dearest followers: don’t let her talk you into thinking she’s normal.  She’s not.”

Thank you, darling.  Love you too.

Anyway.  Onward we go.  I am planning a pretty epic Star Wars marathon this weekend, to celebrate the end of the application process.  I got all my apps turned in early, so I’m completely done.  Now, I wait for a reply.  Let the nail biting commence.

I am dying to get into Penn.  I know it’s expensive, and I know the standards are high, but I have to go there.  Their criminology program is epic, and that’s what I want to major in.  And my family qualifies for a good bit of financial aid, so I think we could stretch the budget and make it work (I’m paying for half, so don’t think I’m naive enough to think my parents can summon money out of thin air.  I know how this stuff works).

I just realized that this article is extremely scattered.  Oops.  Maybe I’ll go for that whole stream of consciousness thing.  After all, it worked for Faulkner.  Then again, I absolutely hated reading his books…I hope my articles don’t sound like that.

My dog is currently obsessed with my guitar.  Every time I pull it out, he comes and sits at my feet like he wants nothing more than to hear me fail at teaching myself to play that damn instrument (it’s harder than it sounds).  I’ve been working for almost a month, and it’s very, very slow progress.  If anyone has any tips to speed up the process, I would love to hear them.

So I just realized my life is extremely dull.  I have nothing else to write about today.  OH! Vote Herman Cain in the Republican primaries (: that is all.

So much to catch up on!

It has been a very long time since my last post.  I apologize dearly for that.  With school starting, it’s been so hectic that I forgot about my blog entirely until today.  So I have a few basics to fill you in on.

One: I don’t know how to write titles.  Are the major words supposed to be capitalized?  Or is it just supposed to be the way I’ve been doing it?  I also am horrible at coming up with creative titles…sigh.

Two: Football is officially in session.  May I just say that this has made me extremely happy.

Three: Today is 9/11.  I could go into a long spiel about how we will never forget, how much we owe to not only those who sacrificed their lives, but to the rescue teams present on that day.  I could write on and on about how tragic 9/11 was, how incomprehensible it is to me that a human can have such hate in them that they would kill 3000 innocent people.  I could go on for several thousand posts, but I’m going to sum it up in two sentences: Thank you.  We will never forget.

Four: I discovered something amazing today.  Change the name of your iPod to “Titanic” on Itunes, hit sync, and then be amused as iTunes syncs the Titanic.  Its pretty entertaining.

Five: Yes, I know I’m easily amused.

Six: I would just like to take a moment to appreciate my friends.  You guys rock.

Seven: While I’m at it, I love my followers too.  You guys also rock.

Eight: Wild Blue is delicious.  This is my discovery of the week.

Nine: Unfortunately, I probably won’t be posting very frequently.  Life is chaotic right now and I don’t have a lot of extra brain power to write witty posts.

Ten: While chaotic, life is pretty damn good.  That is all.
