Snail's Pace

Well last week flew and this week crawls. I guess you have to take what you can get, but it definetly has it's downfalls. Maybe part of the reason I am feeling so down is that it snowed again. Whenever it snows it just seems to me like the whole world stops. I never thought that I would get tired of the fluffy white stuff that falls from the sky, but this winter season I wish it would just stop. It's not like in the past when it snowed a lot and actually stuck to the ground to make the surface of our little section of the world look beautiful. It is just falling to fall because the ground is too warm for it to stick. I think I speak for a lot of people when I say that I wish Mother Nature would just make up her mind already. One day it's warm the next below freezing. I am ready for summer to come and I want it to come now.

Plus you have you factor in the fact that the end of the semester is rapidly approaching. I don't think I am going to be able to get used to the fact that I am going to be out of school at the end of April, besides finals of course. It just seems so soon. For the past four years around this time I was anticipating prom and all the fun activites that went along with that. Or even the musical which occupied most of my time. Now I am anticipating papers, projects, oral presentations, finals. All the things that in high school I didn't have to worry about until the end of April. Growing up is weird. Some days it feel like I am barely out of bed and then there are others that feel like they drag on for a week. Maybe it's just me, but I wish the days would just speed up or slow down evenly and not keep throwing all these twists and turns into my life.

Oh well. I just have to keep looking forward. May, June and July are going to be the best months of my life. In May I am going to be preparing for a tour of Croatia, as well as representing the Croatian heritage (I hope) at the Miss Heritage Pagent in Ambrige Township in Butler County. (First prize is $1000 CASH!!!! How awesome would it be to win that a month before I leave for Croatia???!!!) June and July I will be sitting on the Adriatic beaches of Croatia, performing for people of Croatia in the hardest concerts of my life. They will understand every word that we sing and call durning the dances and songs. They will be critizing every move my Tammie family and I make. I am going to love every minute of it!

Ok. I think I have rambled enough. Here's to the future.

I miss having things like the spring musical, softball season, and prom to make me excited about the future. I hate to seem pessimistic, but when I think about the future now, it seems like it has to be such a serious conception, and I really don't see more of myself than what I am now... I know (or rather, I hope) that'll change over the next few years.

But for now, I agree--here's to the future... the immediate one, anyway. ;^)

Family finding the blog? Got that. Not always a pleasant experience. My grandma saw that I wrote on my blog at two in the morning and she yelled at me about it. :0 :-D Nice to have someone care, I guess.
