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.
Anyway...so 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.
