since my last post i (almost) met barack obama; been in the same room with lebron james, dwayne wade, chris paul and rudy gay; had two major test one in which a stupid white skeeze wanted to cheat beside me; had 3 articles (1 front page!) in my schools newspaper; received an once in a lifetime internship at a local radio station; and most recently traveled to see my best friend do wonderful in a pageant and currently in between entertaining my parent's visit to come see me at school.
It's been hectic at times but i think i'm realizing i'm FINALLY getting the whole swing of this college thing: work hard, dabble in the good stuff, keep in touch with family and friends and then go back to work and studying some more.
one thing i haven't go the swing off is being away from Raleigh! I miss home often, specially when times like this when i'm super busy. I really missed my house when I had to watch grey's anatomy season premiere with my 12' tv on the foot of my bed this week with a book under it because it kept tipping! (i dont have a tv stand, my cable cord isn't long enough to put on my dresser and i watch tv about....once a week).
I really do mean to blog, but telling stories gets boring with no pics! I still have no camera and constantly beg my friends to send me pics. I'll have some soon I promise! So look foward, although i keep saying that.
I'm really excited about going to see Miracle at St. Anna tonight with my parents and possibly my favorite Aunt! too bad my dog cousin (who really seems like a person) can't come too... I do have a picture of me and James McBride, the author of the novel, "Miracle of St. Anna" the novel the movie was based off of!
I met him last year at school after winning an essay contest about his first book, The Color of Water which is amazing. Unfortunately, i prob won't be reading Miracle at St. Anna since i'm going to watch the movie. Sorry, James.
O, and i had mexican food today!! It was the first time in probably a year....with my severe heartburn I've been steering away to avoid a massive like heartburn/stomach ache attack. I conquered. And it was delish.
see ya suckas
