things are good. i've been taking a lot of time to myself lately and dedicating 4 days out of my week to the gym to get back in shape. besides that school is going excellent. i'm still a procrastinator, and i have turned in most of my work late and haven't received the a's i deserve because of it. i'm not complaining though, it's my own fault. i'm only taking typograghy and fundamentals of design right now, but i love the assignments and the teachers. i've learned tons so far and have even taken it upon myself to do some design work out of school for some people my mom works with, and the business she works for. so that bit of extra money is nice. next semester i'm looking forward to my photography class, last time i took it was when i was a jr. in high school and some independent study last year as a senior. david sutton, a famous photographer and friend of the family, came to south bend recently and gave me an olympus om1 camera with 35-70mm zoom,
70-210 Macro zoom, 14mm extension tube (for Macro work), stand, and a new case and strap, and a few rolls of film! WOW, very generous. I've been taking some pictures here and there, i can't wait to get them developed and see just how sweet this camera is. i may even ask hoover if i can come into one of his smaller drawing classes so i can develope it myself. hmm.
i never really write much in here, but i'm bored right now, so i might as well.
i got a pomeranian fox terrier mix a few weeks ago, his name is tyrant. yes as
in xtyrantx, sure. he is a hand full sometimes and tests my patience, but i think
that's a good thing because i need to work on that anyway. he loves all other
animals and lovvvves riding in the car in his puppy purse[which is adorable].
he is getting pretty big, even though he won't get over 10 lbs. he is twice
the size then when i got him. the funniest thing is when him and roxy play
fight, they pin each other and get really into it.
i made up with casey just a little while ago too, which i'm very happy about
because has deffinately been there for me through so much and i love him and
would do anything for that kid.
christie had her baby, she's almost 2 months old already. i cant believe how big
she is getting, and so fast. i love her so much. when i hold her and she laughs or
smiles, it's like nothing else matters. nothing that anyone has said to get me down,
nothing that anyone has done to try and hurt me my friends or my family, none of
it matters because here is this completely innocent person and it makes you want
to live a better life and treat people better, because it's practically unimaginable but one
day this perfect pretty girl will have to deal with all this bullshit in the world. that makes
me so sad i can't even explain it. christie has said she will be the person she wants
parker to be, and i think all that surround her are doing the same, i know i'm trying.
we've all changed so much and it's so crazy because i used to be so easily upset
and pissed off about things people would say or do and i would retalliate. the difference
now is that i honestly don't care. i have way too much going for me, most of the time i'd
prefer everyone just leave me alone, and not care. because if you don't know me or
anything about me, then you shouldn't care about anything i do or say, let alone repeat
anything you 'heard.' chances are you did not 'hear' because i don't tell just anyone personal
things, i'm not that dumb.
i guess i'm just genuinly content. i'm still the same laugh all the time, spontanious, easily
annoyed and sometimes irritated and bitchy emily, but i have a much different approach towards
i really enjoy driving and road trips, i'm always down for anything. i wish people wouldn't hessitate
to try and make some plans, or ask if they can go somewhere with me. especially if you have something
interesting to say, i love talking, i love observing, and i love learning. i still travel ridiculous miles for
good shows and people, so if ANYONE ever wants to do something, let's do it. we only have this
life to live and i'm not gonna waste my time, where are all you other crazies that think like me, hmm?
