It’s been too long. I’ve been trying to find cool things to say that you would want to read but I decided you can live with a boring life update for now.
Because I lost the list of blog ideas I wanted to write.
But luckily for you, I’ve been up to a lot and I’ve taken a lot of pictures to add too. So this’ll be fun. I’ll just type stuff as they come to mind.
My life has been quite interesting as of late. If you follow my social media accounts, you probably know a good deal of it. On Wednesday I had thyroid surgery in which they removed half of my thyroid gland because I had a nodule on it. The initial results said it was benign but they’ll examine it more and I’ll know indefinitely on Friday. The surgery itself actually went really good. My mom was surprised at how awake I was afterwards. 2 hours after surgery and I was talking and being my normal self. There was a bit of pain, but nothing simple Tylenol couldn’t help with. I stayed at the hospital overnight and was taken home in the morning. Since then, I’ve done a lot of resting, which sometimes I feel guilty about but mostly I’ve really enjoyed. I mean, I get to sleep a lot and watch Netflix. So, can’t complain there.
Before my surgery though, I finished my first year of college! I almost got straight A’s too. But biology happened and honestly, I failed the final. (But I still pulled off a B in that class so I think I’m doing okay.) Finishing school was bittersweet. I actually made friends and that’s so weird. A lot of them are moving on to four year colleges now so I won’t get to see them next semester. My favorite professor (from photography class.) also won’t be teaching at my school in the fall either, so I can’t take his class. I’m kinda stressed with the fact that I still haven’t picked my classes for next semester and after talking to my advisor, I realized I’m 3 classes behind, so I’ll have to take another semester instead of just finishing in 2 years. I’m trying so hard to be okay with that. And then there’s the fact that I have no idea where I want to go after community college. That makes me nervous too. So if you have any school recommendations let me know!
I saw Civil War the day it came out, which was an adventure.
I liked The Winter Soldier better. But it was so good to be back in the theater watching a Marvel movie. Now I just need to make it through X-Men: Apocalypse. Which I’ve heard mixed reviews about. (I mean, come on Rotten Tomatoes, 51%??) But I’m not going to let that rating throw me off. I usually enjoy movies that people hate. We’ll see. While a lot of people tend to knock on these X-Men movies, I adore them. Plain and simple. And with all the triggering themes in the movie, for me to come to a place where I actually want to see it…that’s just freaking great. Even Rotten Tomatoes can’t take that from me.
I’ve been watching NCIS again. If you’re into that show and saw the recent episode, I would like to give you a hug. We need it. My fandom is suffering. But really, I’ve missed that show. There was a marathon on when I was in the hospital and then when I got home, it kept me company as I rested. I honestly forgot how much I love that show.
On Saturday I got to stop by a convention that my sister was attending and was able to hang at the Star Wars meetup, which was super cool. I was exhausted because I’m still recovering from surgery, but it was worth it. Dayle did a Life Is Strange cosplay as well as a Rey one. Both turned out great, in my opinion. Plus there was a Matt The Radar Technician from the Undercover boss SNL sketch which I loved. That was a pretty neat day.
So that’s my life I guess. I’m really excited for this summer because this is like, my first real summer. I actually enjoy the freedom. I’m so relived to have no deadlines to meet and papers to write and tests to study for. I can just do whatever. I love that.
However, I am desperately trying to find a job for the summer because I need it. Money stressed me out, plus I get bored easily and sitting around all day is not good for me. I had also had plans to get a gym membership because I can’t workout at school anymore. I miss lifting so much. So pray for a job for me because it’s really making me anxious.
But I have a lot of plans and things I’m excited for this year and next. (All of which require money so a job would be great.) But for the first time, I’m thinking about really branching out and being adventurous. It’s a great feeling. Some things I want to do or am excited that I will do are:
-Go to a convention in August and see my online friend for the 3rd time! Plus meet Sebastian Stan !!
-Trying to go to Colorado to visit my aunt
-I officially got tickets for my first real twenty one pilots concert!! It’s not happening until January but I’m still excited.
-The Black Panther movie is coming out in 1 year, 162 days, 13 hours, and 1 minute.
But who’s counting?
-If I can get a job and work my butt off and really actually figure stuff out and be an adult, I’m trying to go to Star Wars Celebration Orlando next spring, which would honestly be a dream come true.
-Getting matching tattoos with my mom
–Mr. Robot comes back in June and I can’t wait to watch that with Dayle
-Writing! And maybe even finishing my third draft of Forlorn Hope.
And maybe sending some to betas
-Hoping to visit Boston for my birthday
-Possibly more traveling adventures with my best friend
That’s all for now. Thank you for reading my lovely randomness. What have you guys been up to? What are your plans for the summer/year? What are you excited for coming up?
