I’ll Be Missing You…

My mom was supposed to come home yesterday after spending a week in Colorado Springs with my sisters. She was on her way back up when her tire blew, taking out some wires and her headlight with it. It was crazy and I’m thankful it didn’t do anything worse and that she’s safe.

But that means she’s going to be there for at least a few more days. We’re hoping her insurance will pay for a car like last time (man…that car was a babe). And hopefully we’ll be able to buy another one soon so that we won’t be car-less, again.

It isn’t that hard to get around in this small town without a car. It’s just that my work schedule isn’t working with the bus schedule. I keep having to go into town over an hour before work and staying an hour or two afterwards. Plus, without a car, we can’t go buy groceries in Montrose since the nearest Walmart is two hours away.

I’m just hoping things will work out. This seems to always happen when we’re moving. So much stress right now!

Honestly…

Today fucking sucks. Sorry that you had to hear my life isn’t full of gum drops and rainbows. Sometimes days just suck. Those are the days when you plan something because someone in my family always ruins it.

We planned to go to Walmart and gets some bathing suits then head over to my sister’s apartment to try out her swimming pool. And my other sister is being a dick for the last few days, telling me how much she wished I was gone or dead. So we get there and won’t shut up and keeps saying these mean things and so my day was ruined. Now I feel like shit. I don’t feel like eating. I don’t feel like going outside. I don’t feel like anything.

You may say I’m being too dramatic but I’ve been dealing with this my whole life and I’m sick and tired of pretending it’s fine. That I’m fine. I’m pissed and I don’t care if people think it’s wrong.

The end is finally in sight. I’ll be away at college next year! I won’t have to deal with her any more this summer. And then I’m gone. I’m so stoked.

Fail

Wow. I’m pretty much a failure for not posting here for the last few days. My minds in a wack…I can’t really remember what today’s date is right now. All I know is that it isn’t school. EH…

All the Juniors were gone on Thursday and Friday on a field trip to “bond with the eighth graders”. It was totally lame so I decided not to go (I’m a junior) and ended up being the only junior there besides Jon (and he was only there on Thursday). So I basically spent my time in the halls chillin’ like the seniors usually do. I liked not having any classes (basically).

It’s mountain film this weekend and I have a pass (score!). But today I didn’t get to go because I had to babysit and the buses don’t really run on the weekends. I don’t know why THAT makes any sense. But tomorrow I’m having a full-out movie day with my friends and it should be fun (if they ever text me back).

Do you notice that I’m just saying a bunch of random stuff that don’t really have anything to do with each other (and that I’m using a lot of parenthesis)? That’s what happens when I’m tired, bored, and haven’t updated in a while. Just to let ya’ll know.

Dude. It’s freaking windy lately. But it’s nice because I could really use the coolness right now. It’s only 68 out but that’s hot because I’m not used to summer weather yet. It’s always cold up in these here mountains (not always). It’s  a stereotype, but sometimes it’s very true.

For A Fear Of College

Thanks to my bestie, Noelle, I really got into looking for colleges, today. I started narrowing down my list of colleges to apply to awhile ago. Now I have it down to my final 7, and I’m keeping it like that. I really want to get accepted into at least 3, but realistically, I’ll be fine to get into one. Haha.

Here’s my final list:

  • USC (LA, CA)
  • Illinois Institute of Art at Chicago (Chicago, IL)
  • UCCS (Colorado Springs, CO)
  • AI of Cali – SanFran (San Fransisco, CA)
  • Un. of Chicago (Chicago, IL)
  • Columbia University (New York City, NY)
  • NYU (New York City, NY)

As you may notice, all the schools are very urban (just as I like it). I know that if I get into UCCS and another school, it’ll be really hard to decide because I’ve called Colorado home for many years now. It’s going to be hard no matter what school I choose, but leaving all my family and state would be so very hard. Still, if I get into another school, I’ll be able to pull away.

Most of these schools are art schools and all the rest have great art programs. I’m interested in double majoring in Film and English and then having a minor in either Photography or music. I’ve started looking at all the courses and programs offered, and trying to not be overwhelmed by the choices.

I know that I’ll have to work through college with a possibility of two jobs. So, I’ll be busy busy busy, but I don’t think I mind. I like being pulling in all directions and running around all day. It makes the resting periods all the better. I’ll definitely enjoy summer much more (not that I don’t already enjoy it).

College is going to be one of the biggest adventures of my life and I can’t wait to get it started. I’m totally going to miss having the easy high school life, and I’m so afraid of growing up, but everyone does it. It’s just so scary. I have to keep reminding myself there is just so much more to life than being a teenager.
