after lots (seriously… a TON) of thought and prayer, i have decided to stay where i’m at, and go to otc for two years… and then figure out my life from there.
this summer, i will be moving to springfield with some of my besttt friends, and going to school there.
this is one of the biggest decisions i’ve ever made, and i’m really hoping it was the right one.
as much as i would love moving away, and starting completely fresh, it just doesn’t feel right to me.
so, i’m putting those plans on hold, and staying close to my family for now.
i’m choosing to look at this in a much more positive way though:
i won’t have to give up grandma nights (biggg relief… i was worried i’d have to pass that tradition on to my cousin savannah, and she’s five… so i’m not sure how that would go)
art won’t have to be put on the back burner, due to living in a prison cell of a dorm room
i’ll be 25 minutes away from my family, as opposed to 4.5 hours.
rva will drain me of all my money, since i’ll live closer to it, but that’s ok, because i’ll be suuuper cute all the time.
plus, i’ll be around when all my cuteeee out of town friends come for a visit.
and i’ll have the cutest apartment everrr.
i’m actually very excited about the next few years. cross your fingers this works out the way i hope it will.
my dad and i listen to the same-ish music. he will basically listen to whatever i want when we’re in the car. but he always ends up liking it, too. case in point: kate nash.
the other night, my dad came in my room to ask if i wanted to watch a movie. i was trying to figure out the whole crochet thing, so i said no. he stayed way longer than intended though, to dance around my room, and play his little handmade cigar box guitar to “hide and seek” by imogen heap, and “foundations” by kate nash.
he loves her. he used to keep my cd in the car so he could listen to it. really, he is the cutest ever, but i was just sitting there thinking, “really? my dad… kate nash.. not cool”.
but its times like these that make me wanna stay in marshfield forever and ever :]
well, i’m going to get off of the computer now and finish watching star wars with my grandma.
who is asleep… so its more like, i’ll just finish watching it by myself.
oh well. not a bad plan. :]
