Monthly Update

Well, I completed my first 5k. I came in at just around 40 minutes, which wasn't too bad considering I had to stop running for 2 1/2 weeks prior to the race. I'm sitting at home watching New Moon right now, for the second time since I bought it on Sunday. Why am I so addicted to this story, how can I read the books over and over and over again and still find excitement in them? Well, I'm sure some would say it's the twilight craze or whatnot, however I liked this series before it became really trendy...my friend Sonya got me hooked on them. And seriously the other thing, the music... I loved the soundtrack on the first one and the second one has grown on me immensely as well. Geez.
So approximately 2 1/2 months until school starts. Exciting and nerve wracking at the same time. I need to get above a 3.0 in all classes, usually not a cause for concern with me, but since they've made it part of my acceptance it suddenly feels like a ton of pressure.
Well, I'm one beer in and don't want to start blathering on (plus Edward just left Bella so I have to go pay attention now)...xoxo
Orchid, Alanis Morissette:
"Me, and my helmet such an un-conventional kid All intense and kinetic, at best tolerated from afar Not yet arrested, and by that I mean betrothed Though a start I am newly courted I've just not been trusted with alters I'm a sweet piece of work, well intentioned yet disturbed Wrongly label-ed and under-fed, treated like a rose as an orchid My friends, as they weigh in, get understandably protective They have a hard time being objective So inside we cancel each other out I'm a sweet piece of work, well intentioned and unloved Unlabeled and misunderstood, treated like a rose as an orchid You've brought water to me, making sure my bloom rebounds You know best of what my special care allows So I've lived in my blind spot Thought myself usual when I'm not And your garden is a nice spot As long as it is brave and where you are For this sweet piece of work, high maintenance and deserted I've been different and deserving, treated like a rose as an orchid Sweet piece of work, overwhelmed un-observed I've been bowed down to but so misread Treated like a rose as an orchid "
