Sorry I Ran Away...

It has been forever since I last posted, and I didn’t realize this until tonight when I checked my blog for the first time in forever...I am alive and well, my friends, alive and well! The summer went by way too fast, but I got to go to Washington, DC (for work) and to Michigan (with family)--both trips were splendid, indeed. Now I have started the semester up again, and things are hectic as ever. I'm taking a full load, plus working 20+ hours a week. This semester has already proved to be quite challenging for me, as I am enrolled in Formal Logic, African Cinema, my Capstone Senior class Miscegenation and Mulatto American Literature, and an Advanced Creative writing course. Mondays are the worst--I'm going from about 9am to 10pm (studying, school, work, school again). Not to mention, I am traveling to all three Miami University campuses. It takes me about 40 minutes alone to get to one of the campuses. It is awful and really giving my old car a workout! I've been taking the metro when I can, but it doesn't always fit my schedule and it also doesn't go to one of the three campuses (only travels in between two), so the bus doesn't come in handy as often as I'd like. The first week of the semester proved to be a very long "patience" test for me, my laptop practically died, I couldn't get all my books because of financial aide, and I had to beg a prof to sign me into her class. Thanks to my older sister and brother-in-law, I have a brand new laptop and I don't know what to do with it! It's so sparkily and pretty and I love it. :) Because of my wonderful friends (and a few past profs) I was able to obtain all my books, and the prof did in fact sign me into her class (although she hesitated). My best friend, Latasha, is officially married--the wedding was on Sept. 1st and it was stressful (I wanted everything perfect), and it turned out that way...perfect. She was a beautiful bride and I have a ton of awesome pictures to share. I had so much fun being a part of her special day, she made me feel really important and I love to be loved. Other than all that, things are fairly normal and I'm just going day by day. I can't wait for this semester to be over and it just began less than month ago! Tomorrow is the Big Brother 7 finale and I am so excited to see who wins! (Yup, I'm a dork). :)
