Vampires and Shakespeare
So, it’s August. Interesting. Where the heck has summer gone? Wasn’t it just June? I’m amazed at how fast time passes. At this time last year I interviewed for a few new jobs and worked on remodeling the living room of a house I owned. Today, I’ve been at my current job for almost a year and I’m living in an apartment by myself. My life today is vastly different from my life a year ago.
Last week, I ventured to a library .8 miles away from my apartment complex and got myself a library card. I haven’t been much of a reader for most of my life, and I want to make up for lost time by reading novels I should have read by now. I’m starting with Pride and Prejudice and I’ll probably read some Shakespeare after I finish. Also, I think I’m the only person in this world who hadn’t really heard of the Twilight series before this weekend (when I saw articles about it ALL OVER the internet) so maybe I’ll read that too. Vampires and Shakespeare. Sounds about right.
Also! Next weekend, I will be visiting my family in Massachusetts! I am very excited to see my family; I haven’t seen them since January when my hair was still dark brown. Family friends from England will also be at my parents’ house when I visit, so I’ll be excited to be around so many people for a weekend. Living by myself is nice in ways, but I know I don’t want to live alone for the rest of my life. I definitely prefer the company of others to being by myself.
While I’m home I hope to meet up with a few of my friends and maybe go to New York City for a day! I also want to hit my favorite restaurants and will probably be going to WEBS with my mother to scope out some yarn. I’m only there from Friday to Monday, so I’m willing to make the most of my trip.
Swan Lake is still blocking away on the floor of my bedroom. I’m going to need to buy a spritzer or something to rewet it, as it took me too long to block it after soaking it. So I predict it will be pinned to my floor for awhile. It did grow in size after being stretched out, so I’m sure it will wrap around me nicely. I just do not think I’m a stole person; I don’t really have an occasion on which to wear it and I don’t think I can pull off the look. I’ll see.
Things are still good. Things are hard sometimes, but life is good. I am happy.
