“Damnit Zoë! You hardly ever update your damn blog!” is probably what you’re thinking every time you visit this page. Well guess what: I AM NOW! I know, I know, it’s not a Europe blog. And I’m sincerely sorry about that. It’s just that I had that first week all written out in a notebook already, and the rest is just notes about what happened. I’m sure that if I read those notes a lot of memories will come back to me, but most of the details will be lost. I can’t guarantee that I will ever finish those blogs BUT I WILL TRY!
Moving on to the present: a reason I haven’t been updating a lot is because I’m so stressed all the time. I’m stressed about school. I’m stressed about college and how it seems it’s just around the corner, and stressing about college makes me stress about moving in nine or ten months (I know it seems like a while, but that time is going to fly right by). I’m stressed about family drama. I’m stressed about friend drama. I’m stressed about work–well mainly that whenever I’m not at work I’m exhausted and sleep instead of hanging out with my friends. I’m stressed because I should save my money but it seems to disappear, which leads me to my next topic:
I’m a shopaholic. Stop giggling; this is no laughing matter. Seriously, whenever I have nothing to do I will go to the mall or Target or the BLD shopping center by my house and spend spend spend on things that I don’t need. I find new clothes in my closet all the time. It’s ridiculous. And a good portion of the clothes I’ve bought are things that I will most likely never wear, but were so cute that I just had to buy them. I don’t know what to do, because it’s so absurd!
There has been a crazy amount of unnecessary drama going on lately both in my family and circles of friends. But that’s all I’m going to say about it, because I don’t want to talk about it.
My older sister Hollie recently moved out of the house which means that I FINALLY get my own room back! If you’ve spent more than a couple minutes with me then you know this because it’s been all I’ve been talking about. I have spent the last week (that is, the days I’ve had off work) decorating and organizing the room.
More decorations to come. I bought a couple of disposable cameras to fill that bulletin board with pictures. Also (whenever I get around to buying some tape) the wall around it will (eventually) be covered in pictures as well. I’m excited to get going on that. This room has officially become my side-project, even though it’s my only project…. I’m stoked to see how it will turn out!
I recently started applying to colleges, well one college so far. I had been planning to apply to quite a few until I realized that there was a $55 application fee. Wow. Now I’m thinking maybe just one more will be alright. I applied to my first, second, and third choice the other night: CSU Monterey Bay. I’m thinking of majoring in Journalism or Creative Writing or something along those lines, because writing is really the only thing I can think of that I am good at and enjoy doing. Maybe I’ll minor in French or Theater or something fun.
I definitely had more ideas to add when I started this post, but now I can’t think of anything else. So until next time, goodnight. =)
