So I've already been neglecting my blog. First attempt to stop this from happening is what follows.
I've been listening to Thriller this evening, and it's reminded me of the incredible musician Michael Jackson was. Even under the circumstances it really gets me going. You can't "beat it." Oh, I'm just full of great stuff today. I may or may not have even danced around the house to thriller with the dog while Joel was gone.
I also have the urge to say how sick and tired I am of seeing Perez Hilton's drama every time I get on Twitter. If there were ever a case of social media abuse, he is it. My current gossip blog of choice is Sasha Pasulka's Evil Beet Gossip. It's actually utilizes talented writers (no ghost blogging here) and ever since Speidi was banned from the site, I have been a devout follower.
Now onto events of my own life. Last week, I decided that the greatest gift to my dad for Father's day would be homemade sugar cookies to go with his special edition orange soda from Pops.
Rolling and cookie cutting.
Add some icing and sprinkles and they will soon disappear.
After packing up my cookies, the next stop was was B-Dock at Lake Murray in celebration of Father's Day and all things summer.
I decided that rather than being dragged behind a boat at 45 mph, I would be the designated photog in order to continue gaining experience with my new camera.
I didn't want to fall like sis did - though it was her first time wake boarding.
Back on the dock, Emma was a great subject to shoot while enjoying some homemade ice cream.
Sharing with mom.
..and learning to say CHEESE for the camera.
The weekend was definitely a success. I escaped unscathed: no sunburn, no hangover and ready to take on another week of job applications et-cetera. How much of that I actually accomplished is debatable. I did, however, finish the fifth book of the Dark Tower series, and pay rent and utilities on time.
The possibility of law school is still very much on the table (mom and dad are very in favor of that) as is finding a job right away if I can. If i have to wait tables in the meantime while I figure that out, that won't be such a bad thing either. I'm going to take everything as it comes and enjoy summer while I can. It might, after all, be the last one I get.
