I completely disappeared for the last week for no real reason. It was spring break and I had plans to go spend a week drunk off my ass in Panama City with a couple of the frats, but then that Thursday two of the guys I was rooming with had a huge fight because one slept with the other's girlfriend and then they weren't going and then we couldn't fill the room in 24 hours so the rest of the room couldn't go either. Life's bitchy like that sometimes.

So I drove the 700+ miles home and promptly determined that I am not going to be able to live at home this summer and keep my sanity. IDK, guys, I know this is probably just me being a whiny teenager, but my mom and I get along so much better when we're several states apart. For all intents & purposes, I'm really living without any supervision here; the RAs & housing staff don't care what we're doing as long as no one's getting hurt. It's just frustrating to go home and immediately revert to being twelve with a ten o'clock curfew. Yes, I know I don't have a life there. It'd just be nice to pretend.

Haha, I can't even imagine going back to being twelve. I was still living in Idaho and going to a school I loved and surrounded by some of the best people I've ever met, all of whom I'd known since we were five. I had no idea that my dad would lose his job and my mom would be diagnosed and we'd have to move to DC, so I was pretty happy back then. If I could see myself now... I'm probably at the happiest point in my life here at college, despite all of the stress and drama, because I love what I'm doing and I've made a place here. Those six years in between were pretty miserable, but it's interesting that these are the two high points of my life so far.

To actually answer the question, an amusing mixture of both. I'd be horrified that I wasn't studying English to become a ~real writer~, which I wanted since I was three, and I probably wouldn't be all that pleased with the drinking and partying and sex, but twelve-year-old me was very very sheltered. (Okay, I still sort of am, shut up.) I've gotten past that now. ;) But overall, I think I'd be okay with my life, which is nice to realize.

Also, there's a pretty important episode of a pretty awesome show airing this week! (No spoilers, please!) I rather like the relevancy of this icon, although unfortunately Jared Padalecki hasn't worked up the nerve to actually ask me to fuck on the Impala yet. Jensen's probably taking up all his time, that bitch. ♥

We have a rifle match in Ohio, so I'm leaving right after classes today and won't get back until sometime early Sunday morning. Traveling with the team should be interesting... and I'm really excited to have real food instead of the cafeteria for the first time in months. It's probably sad that I am this excited at the prospect of Chipotle, but I miss it!

I have Supernatural to watch on the bus ride (although haha, I really should never watch that show in the company of other people, I know I act ridiculous! And I am still completely unspoiled, but I am so excited by all of the squee on my flist) and am still very upset at the recent lack of Glee. I need my shows, damn it!

And to everyone doing NaNo, you are absolutely crazy and I am totally in awe of your prolificness. [livejournal.com profile] lady_sarai & [livejournal.com profile] jelliclekat, I AM LOOKING AT YOU. Keep it going, you're amazing. ♥

edit QUICK, REC ME YOUR FAVORITE LONG FICS! I'll be on a bus for around 20 hours this weekend and may actually finish my homework before we get back. And let's face it, reading Sam/Dean or J2 is preferable to problem sets no matter what.

Am in Columbus, OH for the night - I'll get to Terre Haute sometime tomorrow and explore the town a little. I've been spamming @marenzi all day with a #CollegeRoadTrip hashtag, including my exciting adventures when my car decided to stop shifting gears and stay stuck in overdrive. YAY. I've also only driven through 5 states but have crossed 8 state lines. Oh crazy highways.

Not much to say other than that I adore road trips like nothing else. Driving with the windows down and the music up and clear, empty highway as far as you can see is my forever happy place.

The car is loaded up & I have a driving playlist ready to go. I may or may not have internet tonight & tomorrow, but I'm moving into the dorm Friday night and you'll probably get a picspam of everything ever.

OH SWEET JESUS FUCK. THIS IS MY SHOW. DEAN! SAM! CASTIEL! Spoiler: Our boys are BADASS & FUCKED UP & HOT LIKE BURNING. I am all flaily and trembling and making fists of glee.

I do not want to hear any squee-harshing, okay? Or spoilers about next week's promo! Nnngh. Will try to catch up with my flist backlog when I'm coherent.

Um. Spent all day driving with Caro - we found a dozen little markets in middle-of-nowhere PA & generally made idiots of ourselves. Not to mention that my thirteen-year-old car got 36 mpg, which I am VERY happy with. I wish we could do this every weekend. Because we can sit a foot away from each other for twelve-plus hours straight and come out of it laughing. We cranked down the windows and put on my iPod and argued over terrible middle-school pop versus cock rock. It was a really fantastic day.

And then this and these and I am DONE. sofjdsoafjf Today FTMFW.

ajkfldsajo I MISSED TONIGHT'S EPISODE. Family dinner was five hours and I only just got home. I will be completely avoiding my flist until I find a dl sometime Saturday & get a chance to watch!

Tomorrow morning I'm heading up to Lancaster with Caro for a mini-road-trip! This was originally supposed to be a Thursday-Friday-Saturday thing, but we both got busy and we've cut it down to just tomorrow. But yeah, we have a general idea of where we're driving and we're pretty much set. Open road and loud music and all that - I'll probably even channel Dean and annoy her with classic rock. Pictures if I remember my camera! Yay spring break. ♥

NYC!

There is currently the slightest possibility that I might be able to go to New York City for the first week of spring break - a friend and I, who have always wanted to travel together, are tentatively making plans for either a road trip or staying with her cousin in NYC. I've never been there and I'm so excited, even if it's only for a few days (I have softball practice/games the second week).

But more importantly, I'm kind of overwhelmed by the infinite options, aside from all the typical touristy stuff. Any New Yorkers on my flist? I'd love to hear about your favorite places, things to do, etc. - particularly on a limited budget, because I am perpetually broke! The dates would be something like March 16-22, give or take a few days either way. But this will be my first spring break trip, because my family doesn't do vacations, and I really hope everything pans out. ♥

So I'm alive after all! The past week just - I honestly can't account for half of that time. What happened, people? But good times were had, so I really can't complain. I was firmly planted in the kitchen for five days straight, which was beyond awesome. I'm not even going to get into that now because I'm planning an epic picspam/storytelling sometime tonight.

Christmas turned out nice, even if we didn't do much. I was sort of nostalgic re:decorations, because they just didn't happen; we did get a tree, but didn't decorate it or hang stockings. IDK, they were just so iconic as a kid that I really missed them now, especially since it's my last year at home and all. My parents found me an elliptical though, so that was awesome! I wasn't expecting anything like that, because even secondhand ellipticals are well over $100 and that tends to be the family limit. But a neighbor got one and hated it, so she sold it for $50 just to get it out of her house. Whatever, I'm psyched! It's definitely an improvement over working out after school in the gym basement, because now it's stuffed with the lacrosse boys who're training. (Okay, so that admittedly wasn't exactly a hardship, but.)

And then AND THEN. I drove up to Pennsylvania early Friday morning (ugh, I did not sleep at all last week) to help with another family dinner. So much more than you ever wanted to know about the Italian side of my family! )

I spent Saturday night in Pennsylvania and then took the long way home yesterday. All back roads, no highways - it was fantastic. I was really disappointed not to find any little coffeeshops (I have a thing), but it was still so relaxing. Mmph. Good way to end the week.

I really hope all of you had happy Christmases as well! ♥
