It's been a while, so I thought I'd post a recap of what's going on lately. K-mart's been taking up a lot of my time. And guess what? It's not the living hell that I thought it was! I've made some good friends, met some cute guys, and learned some things. Of course, I'm still anxious to be done with it and on to something more enjoyable, but it turns out that you really can be happy anywhere.
Summer has been pretty much awesome this year, in spite of my nagging fears of forthcoming failures. I like the sun on my face and the grass between my toes, with the lovely feeling that comes on my days off from having nothing to do and all day to do it in. :)
I turned nineteen a couple weeks ago, and had an absolutely fantastic birthday. My family is just the greatest. My little brother, Matthew, got me a Broadway quizbook, and I have been discovering so many new musicals from it. Awwwesome! :D Candide, Martin Guerre, the Scarlet Pimpernel, Phantom (not to be confused with the Andrew Lloyd Webber show), and Lucky Stiff are great listens, just to name a few.
After school got out in May I made a goal to reread the Harry Potter books by the end of the summer, and I am thrilled to say that I did it. It had been quite a while since I had actually read them, (I tend to go for a while just coasting on my remembered knowledge) but they are just so GOOD! Especially, of course, my all time favorite Harry Potter character, and one of my favorite characters of all time, Severus Snape. That man is freaking epic.
I've been housesitting a house that I dearly love with my best friend who I dearly love, and it's a perfect way to start ending the summer. I'll be moving to Salt Lake next month, and I'm not sure how that's going to go, but I'm just trying to enjoy the moments that I have right now as they come.
