But I opened my eyes and walked out the door and the clouds came tumbling down...

My sisters are in the air. They will be landing in about an hour.


My computer will not be coming with me (I need to learn to get over the separation anxiety) and so I won't be updating again until Sunday night. I won't be on AIM either (obviously), but my cell phone will be in tow. I have packed my charger also, because unlike my beloved Nokia phones that could hold a charge for a week with daily calls, the Motorola piece of crap has a barely-three-day life. It died on my yesterday while I was trying to play Bejeweled during class. Ass. I'm packed and ready to go. I hope this weekend is as fun as we've all been anticipating.

In a last note, it's our friend Pat's birthday today. He is the big 2-1 now, and from what I've heard, he'll be going to a bar tonight. Heh...Patty drinking. It's kinda funny.

Anyway, I was trying to think of adjectives to describe Pat (mostly along the lines of superlatives) and it's hard. He isn't the geekiest person I know, nor is he the coolest. He's a happy medium, and just the best damn kid ever. That's why I'm president of his fan club. (No, seriously...I am. I created a fan club and am president. Candace is the Vice-President, and Zoe is public relations.) It began because he saved me $400 on my recent computer purchase (which, alas, was not shipped in time for my birthday. Damn you, Apple!), but he's just a great person. I love that kid.

And now...a bit of reading to take my mind off the fact that I'm uber excited. I was going to blow dry my hair, but I decided I didn't want to. So I have time to kill.


As a final note, I don't have many "happy" icons, and those I do have I have used recently. The rest are more "huh." or "grrr." so I'll try to end this on "huh." note (a la Eddie Izzard). When do you start to feel grown-up? I know what it's like to feel old, but me in a room with high school kids and I feel it almost immediately. But grown-up is something different. I always feel out of place around adults (in places such as Starbucks) and despite the fact that I'm a junior in college (which always sounded so old before), I don't feel like I belong in that subset. Maybe it's the new school that I'm not quite used to. I feel I have the knowledge of my age, and I'm pretty sure I have the maturity, but there's something else missing that I can't quite put my finger on. Something is missing from my life that keeps me from feeling like an adult. I'll let you know if I find it.
