There was a time when men were kind
When their voices were soft
And their words inviting
There was a time when love was blind
And the world was a song
And the song was exciting…
There was a time when I updated this blog once a week or so. There was a time when I did not possess the latest DVD of Beyonc
é in concert. There was a time when I needed a new computer. There was a time when I was unemployed for the summer. These times, my friend, are gone.
Well, how long has it been this time? Approximately 3 months? I am ever so sorry. Lots has happened, and I knew I would have to update you eventually, but I just kept putting it offf. Why? Because procrastinating is what I do best, of course! Besides, I think like 3 of you read this regularly anyway, so no harm done, right?
So here I am in the final week of my third semester of college! I’ve completed 2 finals so far, and was already informed that I got an A on one of them. This pleases me greatly. I’ve had a pretty good semester, but I’ve never had to write so many dern papers in my life. Seriously, every one of my classes (except the music ones, obviously) required at least 1 paper. Not cool!
List of KD’s Newly-Acquired Things
- A computer! It was supposed to be my birthday present, but my poor old laptop couldn’t hold out until then. So I now have a fancy, shiny new Dell running Windows Vista, with 4gb of RAM and 320gb of storage! I’m psyched! Vista is a bit different from XP, but I think it’s an overall improvement.
- A cell phone! That was supposed to be my Christmas present, but my old one died completely right around the time I got my computer. Since my mother insisted that I have a phone while in Iowa this summer (more about that soon), we went to Alltel and got me a brand new phone! It’s nothing special, but it makes calls, which was what I was looking for, at least until I can afford an accessible one.
- A summer job! That’s right, I’m oficially employed! This offer kind of landed in my lap, but I’m taking it; the pay is YUMMY!! So what exactly will I be doing? I’ll be at the Iowa Center for the Blind, teaching high school students Braille and computers and stuff. I’ll also be living with them in their apartments. So it’s kind of like the Center I went to before I came to college, only the roles are now reversed. I can’t pretend I’m not nervous, but it should be a great learning experience. And… I get money. Money is good.
That is all for now. I need to read some stuff for my history final, which isn’t until Friday, but which is also the one I’m most worried about. But before I depart, I shall explain my new method for titling and theming my blog posts. Each one from this time on will be built around song lyrics! I think this could inspire me to write more often, since I am the Song Wizard of the Universe. (At least according to Mary and G.)
Anyway, I must go play with the little brat-er, the darling puppy now. She pouts if I don’t pay enough attention to her. See y’all in Iowa probably!
