So. Life has been crazy good and crazy bad, but mostly just crazy. Especially this past week, with preparation for exams, completing final projects, the above spontaneous mini photo shoot with my friend Aubrey, and two surprise parties in one weekend. I realize I went on an impromptu blogging leave of absence, but sometimes sacrifices must be made for my education (and, uhm, social life).
+01. My little brother turned 16. SIXTEEN. Gee whiz, folks, how did that happen? I was just 16! Of course we threw a surprise party for him. We stuffed a bunch of boys in his room, so when he opened the door after coming home--heart attack moment. The look on his face was priceless.
So, funny thing...Grant has commented on my blog all of three times in its existence, and only then when I force him to (though he insists he looks at it alllll the time. ha.). To give you an idea of his sense of humor, here are those three comments:
Yeah. I love that kid.
+02. Last weekend, I discovered something. Namely, that I want a gibbon. I want a gibbon a lot. I was almost crying over how adorable they are (speaking of which, has anyone ever seen the video of Kristen Bell freak out over that sloth?). I have no idea where this came from because I really don't like monkeys all that much, but...it's true love, guys. I think they are officially the cutest thing on the planet. Proof: here and here and here and here and here and here. <squeal!> Oh my, I'm obsessed with them.
+04. I have so many plans for the spring--things I want to do, places I want to go...I hope it all falls into place. For now, I'm just really looking forward to spring break, which comes with the conclusion of my last final next Thursday, a week from today. can. not. wait.
Speaking of spring...I mean, forgive me for asking, but what happened to winter? It seems wrong to be seeing and feeling and talking of spring when we hardly had a winter at all. But hey--I'm not complaining. Sure, it's raining now, but I've seen the first flowers sprouting up in the yard, and while that seems a bit premature, it makes me very, very happy.
+05. Happiness = spring. Happiness = coffee dates with friends. Happiness = knowing the first day of shooting for the Les Mis film started. Happiness = running into friends on campus. Happiness = sunshine, and rain too. Happiness = crazy, crazy life.
Alright, enough of my ramblings. Have a lovely weekend. :)
