The tide is high, but I’m holdin’ on,
I’m gonna be your number one.
I’m not the kind of girl
who gives up just like that!

So it is way too early to be up. Seriously. But here I am. In algebra, of all things. But that’s OK, because I feel remarkably well-rested. That’s entirely thanks to fall break.
I’m not going to apologize for not writing sooner; I figure I’ve done it so much lately (well … lately in terms of my previous posts, not in terms of the calendar) that it will just sound insincere and trite. Isn’t that a great word? Trite. I love it.
Anyway, this semester has not been pleasant. Everyone who reads this probably already knows why, but just in case…
In a nutshell, Eldora contracted Lyme Disease sometime this summer. We don’t know how, but things were looking pretty serious for a few weeks. She went back to my hometown with my parents because we have a vet there we like. Meanwhile, I was trying to take 18 credit hours and juggle book reports and papers and tests and monster reading assignments. I also had to find time to eat and sleep. Fortunately Eldora is back to work; I just have to give her pills and monitor her behavior and all that fun stuff. Our time apart brought home to me how much I really need her. Not in the way you might think–I can get around fine with my cane. But she’s become something like my adopted daughter. I need her like a mother needs her child. That’s right, y’all, I’m a 20-year-old single mom. Good for me, haha.
So… I should really pay attention in algebra now. I’ll post my schedule along with exciting news about the new Beyoncé and Michelle Williams albums later. I really would like to take up blogging again; it kind of helps me get my thoughts in order. We’ll see.
