i digress

7.19.2011

I have a lot to say but sadly, there doesn't exist a catagory into which all the subjects fit. Digressing, better known as rambling, is something I do quite well. My words flow freely and sometimes not entierly smoothly, causing me to wish for the ability to string them together like beads on a string. As imperfect as my vocabulary skills are, I digress again, so please bare with me.

Summer has flown by too quickly. It seems like just yesterday I finished my text books and tucked them underneath my bed, hidden from summer bound eyes. The commencement of my senior year is just around the corner, and dare I say it, I'm eager to finish highschool. All too soon I will have to break my summer habit of staying up late at night, which will lead to early rises and more coffee needed than ususal. My educational load here at home looks light for the most part. The trick will be searching for colleges, deciding which one is the one, and finally settling on a major. Oh boy. I will try not to stress myself out, but embrace each moment as a gift and look forward to moving on.

Back to talk of summer, its not completely over yet. Next week I will be traveling to the beach for my grandparent's 50th wedding anniversary, which is ultimately a family reunion gathering. I have four new little cousins which I will get to meet for the first time, and realatives that I have not seen in forever. Needless to say, I'm rather excited.

Big news, and probably the best news so far. My mom is halfway through her chemo treatment! This process has been long and hard on everyone, especially on her, but knowing that we are so close to the end is hopeful. Thank you all for your prayers and encouraging words through this.
