Month: June 2013
Since it’s summer time and I have a little down time I’m looking for books to read. I am looking for suggestions for any good books! I have a month and a half left before school starts up again so I wanna get in as much reading as I can!
Let me know your favorite books!
Yet again I find myself in the awkward weekend slump. Since coming home one of the hardest and weirdest things I’ve had to deal with is being the 3rd, 5th, 7th …etc wheel. After spending about a month at home I’ve come to realize all my friends here, with the exception of a select few, are all in steady, stable, and longterm relationships. I’m not saying this is a bad thing per say. I’m very happy that they have found happiness with another person. The thing that sucks about it is the fact that they have all pretty much “settled down”. I myself am not a super hard core partier. That doesn’t mean I don’t like to go out and have fun though. I do like to go out on weekends or at least have the option to go out if I want. Nobody here really like to go out anymore. Most of my friends idea of a good time is watching a movie at home and maybe a drink or two. That is if I can even convince them to do something besides couple time. Don’t get me wrong…. I like just chilling…..but when it’s all you ever do….it gets BORING! I’ve tried to find a way to fix this. I’ve reached out to old friends and tried to make new ones but have run into the same issue. Everyone is settling down! LIKE WHAT??!?! We are 20,21, 22, 23 and 24 years old. Aren’t we supposed to be having fun. I guess everyone has different ideas of fun. I’m at the point in life now where I want to go out. I want to try different things. I want to live a little. Sadly, everyone else around here has already passed that point.
a very frustrated
So as of lately when I go to write a post I just completely blank on what I wanted to write (like now). I would have this whole eloquently witty post all figured out in my head then BOOM gone! So I’m just kind of winging it now. Sorry ahead of time.
In the past few days I have been terribly exhausted. Work has kicked my butt this week physically. I’m embarrassed to admit that on Wednesday night I was asleep by about 8:30pm and around 9-9:30 on Thursday! What is happening to me?!! Anyways, before all this sleeping occurred I had planned on telling you about my day on Thursday. You could say that Thursday was just “one of those days”.
Let me set the scene. It was a cloudy and dreary day. Due to all the storms we have been having in the past few weeks neither river I had to investigate was in the best conditions. The first river was a very small and narrow place with slippery muddy bottoms. It was filled with fallen trees blocking the way and banks covered in thorns and poison ivy. Beautiful right?! Well, it was apparent that gravity was just not “team Meghan” that day. While trying to climb up a bank that had already become extremely muddy and slick, I took a nice tumble. It was one step (…almost safe!), step two (..SPLAT!). My entire left side was covered in mud! That wasn’t where my day ended though. Gravity, like most people, seemed to like even numbers. Since my left slide was already covered in mud my right side deserved something. The next river we went to seemed like a nice friendly river. The bottom started off as a nice pebbly bottom, but slowly evolved in a slick rocky bottom with strong currents. Lucky for me, gravity was feeling kind and wanted to help wash muddy Meghan off. I found myself on a slippery rock. Trying to be smart, I tried to slowly navigate myself off this slick rock to more stable ground only to catch my foot on another rock and go tumbling into the water. This time it was my right side that paid the price getting soaked. As I said… it just was “one of those days”.
My day wasn’t all bad though. I got to meet some interesting characters along the way. The first critter we ran into was a fairly large snapping turtle who was not too fond of our presence.
Our next fun guest was an animal I had never seen before. It was a muskrat. I was also not too found of us coming around. Needless to say it scared the crap out of all of us when it shot out of it den. We thought it was an angry beaver and those are not something you want to mess with. A muskrat is somewhat of an awkward looking animal. It looks like a cross between a rat and a beaver.
he last critter we saw was my favorite. It was a baby deer. He was just chilling along the bank watching us. Needless to say… I named him Bambi. He was really cute.
So that was pretty much my day.
Well I was going to write awesome posts today but I’m too tired so I pick sleep.
So one thing I did not mention about myself is that I am a founding member of a sorority at my school. As of this morning I have received the news that the first of my fellow founding sisters is engaged. Yup ENGAGED. Most of the founding sisters (including me) were freshmen when we first started and are now seniors. Due to this fact, I believe this sisters engagement is going to start off a chain reaction of more engagements within the year. Looks like I’m going to need to go dress shopping.
