Packing the Trunk

The pursuit of happiness is a most ridiculous phrase; if you pursue happiness you'll never find it.
Charles Percy Snow (19051980)

The best way to have fun is by doing something completely and totally insane. Then, even if it isn't as fun as it ought to be, you have an awesome story to tell, usually complete with several Kodak moments.
Yesterday night was "funin'" night. In order to accomplish such a feat, you obviously need some interesting people to add to the mix. Well, the rare and fascinating chicks for "funin'" night included Emmy, Lindsey, Lindsay, Mandy, and me. The fact being that we are poor college students, not all of us have cars. So we piled into Emmy's Aurora on the way to pick up Mandy, with Lindsay and Lindsey in the backseat. It was then that they discovered that by pulling down the middle armrest, you can access the trunk. It was decided then and there that Lindsey would be riding in the trunk after we picked up Mandy, because how cool is that?
We arrive, pop the trunk, and Lindsey freaks out. (Well, I guess that isn't quite true, she tried to get in the trunk and then freaked out.) The trunk was to small of a space for her claustrophobic self.
So I decided to take the plunge. I don't blame Lindsey in the least, it was really freaky at first. And hot. Really hot. But being able to have the Kodak moment of my head sticking through Emmy's backseat made it all worth it.
There was a point to the madness, but I really don't remember what it was, oh well, it was fun.

The Back-to-School Journey Begins

Sometimes I lie awake at night, and I ask, "Where have I gone wrong?" Then a voice says to me, "This is going to take more than one night."
Charles M. Schulz (1922-2000), Charlie Brown in "Peanuts"

My grand sweeping return to Seton Hill University happens in a little over a week. My amazing summer life is about to be over. But I'm still excited beyond belief.
Isn't it sad that as a little kid, I plotted and planed to stretch my summer months, and now, I'm waiting to get back to school. With the help of my younger brother Dominic, I dragged all the junk that I had dumped into my garage in May out into the fresh air. We looked through everything, I re-packed some of it in a neater fashion, and put it back in the garage. This time however, my things are stacked instead of thrown in beside my sister's.
Packing however, is nothing compared to the appointment schedule I've had to get me ready for the fall. Being a last minute person, all such appointments are, of course, this week. Orthodontist, Oral Surgeon, Hairstylist, and Photo Specialist I don't know what else has fun written all over it.
The Back-to-School shopping is the part I'm looking forward to. Then it's back to good old Seton Hill, that is, if they finish my room in time.
