Contemplatively Whelmed.

It's a Colbie Caillat kind of day. Soft and acoustical. 

In other news. I'm slightly contemplative today.  Every once in a while., I have these realizations about myself. Sometimes I like them., other times.. not so much.  This one could be either I guess.  But. I've realized that the commonality between onions, ogres, and myself.. is that we all have layers. People think I'm quiet.  And I suppose I am sometimes. But not if you know me well.  I think that I have certain layers, and certain friends get to certain layers.   It's not that I have any sort of 'system'. I don't really choose who gets to which layer. That just happens. I consider my 'deep layer' friends pretty rare.  Those are my keepers.  But., that aside.. I wonder if I have too many layers.  And maybe they prevent me from opening up quick enough.  And more than that, what if the people that I want to get to the deep layer aren't patient enough? But. I suppose that they'll be as patient as they want. And then if they're patient enough., they'll be a deep layer friend.. . a keeper.  

In more other news.  I went for a little run today.  And I was thinking about this next semester.  My last semester of college.  Shoot dang.  I can't believe it's here.  And, it makes me all a little overwhelmed.  Not overly overwhelmed. But., it's real life.  And I need to job search. And figure out what I actually want to do in real life.  It's funny.  Because I got so comfortable here.  And that's a good thing.  You're supposed to be comfortable and content where you are.  And with friends like mine, how could you not love it here?!.  But. No one stays in college forever.  No one normal anyways.  Not as a student at least.  So. Why is it a surprise to me that it's time to move on? But. I did realize one crucial thing.  And I don't mean to make you sad, but Shayler isn't coming back.  And I realized that Shayla is an essential part of all my Greenville existence.  She understands my rambles, and she laughs when I talk like a crazy person.  She just gets me. In the deep layer/keep sort of way.  And I just really miss her today. Always. But really today.  She'll understand.

I Can Drive A Stick Shift.

It's been a while. And., once again.. I've forgotten how to blog.  

We'll start with Christmas break.  Being home was wonderful.  I got to hang out with my family a lot and see my sister and her hubby more than usual.  My traditional day became watching F.R.I.E.N.D.S (either by myself or with my mother) during the day, and then each night, my dad and I would watch a Harry Potter movie and then play a game of cribbage.  So, yes. I was a vegetable over break. But, I did a couple Jillian workouts and took a couple walks, too.  Got coffee with a couple friends and whatnot.  Spent Christmas Eve and New Years Eve with my family and fun people.  So. That's about that.  

Now I'm back at Greenville, and my break [fortunately] isn't over yet.  I don't start classes until the 31st, so I'm just chillin and wasting time.  Blakeley just spent a week here hanging out with me, which was wonderful.  
Right now I'm at Julie's watching the Bachelor, which I already know will be one of my favorite parts of each week to come.  She also gave me my first lesson is driving stick shift tonight, which I'm pretty pumped about.. because I've always kinda wanted a stick shift car.  So, maybe that weird small dream will come true.  Also. Jules and I are going to attempt to do Jillian's Six Week Six Pack so., that'll be death.

Things to do this week? Hmm.. Knit. Watch TV. Read The Hunger Games. Knit some more. Work out. Job search. Tutor. Drink coffee. More TV. More knitting. Run (because it's 60 degrees outside). Hang out with people.. Whatever else my heart desires.  Rough life huh?.. 
Things to look forward to: Julie and I are gonna go to Wisconsin at the end of the month!! And I get to see my family, because I miss them already! 

Sorry about the lengthy boring ramblings. I'll try and up my game next time..
