Subject:A HA HA HA
Time:2:43 pm.
I am in a super great mood today, despite the illness that I finally caught from the rest of my house. And the looming essay deadline. And the fact that Shannon L. did not meet me in the library like we planned last night. But, the library is not big, and I will track her down. She's most likely upstairs reading for one of her classes, like I should be doing. All in due course though.

So, why I am so happy? One reason: letters in the mail.
Monday I recieved two letters, one from Brandy and one from Carrie. Tuesday I got a letter from Whitney. Yesterday, I got a surprise package from Brandy (full of fun little toys and stickers). And this morning I got a package from my mom and a letter from Jodi. And there is an expected letter/possible package from Carrie and some flute music from the director at my church.

Another good thing: okra.
Shannon L. and I found okra at ASDA supermarket on Tuesday. Its one of the highlights of my ASDA experiences. We went to Safeway to find artichokes, but they didnt have them. This is obviously not an artichoke eating country.

And the final good thing: traveling.
I am going to Amsterdam next Tuesday to Thursday and then to Edinburgh on Saturday and Sunday. I am already super psyched. I just have to get my work done first. Good thing there is a deadline for Monday at 4pm.

This afternoon, I had 4 emails in my inbox all about the same thing.
Apparently, a guy that lives down the street was arrested for child molestation. I've always hated this kid, and my sister absolutely cannot stand him, so its no suprise.
My sister was the assistant swim-coach with him for the past 2 years, and she knew that he had bothered friends of hers, and he even tried to bother Barbara, but she doesnt take crap like that. I hope she called the police and told them everything she knew about him.
I can only imagine the neighborhood gossip. Adam was loved by all the mommies because he was so smart and good-looking (The photo they have of him online is absolutely ridiculous. He's never looked that good in his life.) and when he graduated he ended up going to Purdue.
My sister says that the minimum sentence is 10 years, but that could be the neighborhood gossip.
Here are links to 2 local news stations, and then to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Everything that was sent to me via email:

-http://www.wsbtv.com/news/2631890/detail.html (WSB/ABC)

Doesnt this make you want to move to my neighborhood? I swear, its a great place to live...

Subject:i cant wait to find the typos in the morning
Time:12:26 am.
essay: what i did on my summer break

the simple answer - i spent 11 weeks in brevard north carolina as a camp counselor.

the not so simple answer - i got a tattoo. i got stuck in a rainstorm with no power steering/brakes and had to be rescued by the owner of the camp. i learned how to say "right now" in spanish. i taught archery for 3 hours a day almost everyday for 10 weeks. i bought a dolly's tshirt because it was the thing to do. i read 13+ books. i ran around like an idiot half the time. i think small children believed i said things for my own benefit. i became my mother at times. i went to bed before 11pm and got up at 8a. i know how to use the hobart. i sang too many songs with silly endings. i lived without air conditioning and learned to prefer it. the farthest i drove was asheville. i saw the biltmore estate. i spent alot of time in the brevard walmart. i made some friends. i went to a mormon church service, twice. i walked up a huge hill at least 3 times a day, if not more. i wore long sleeve shirts and shorts and sandals. i got a farmers tan - including the watch tan line. i got sick and started taking vitamins. i got another ear piercing. i took 5 rolls of film. il earned the spongebob squarepants theme song - spanish as well. i evolved.

the end.


so, i'm home now. i'm babysitting tuesday and thursday mornings during august, which means some more money, but no way to go up to athens for chapter meetings. i was going to try to go, but if i'm babysitting tuesday morning at 8a, i dont think thats feasible. i'm just killing time before i go to england, and its very strange. i have nothing to worry about for 5 weeks. i have to get some school things, and pack two suitcases and thats it. i dont have to worry about moving in furniture or getting a job. i'm in a nice little limbo.

barbara moves into brumby on saturday. i'm going up to help (which will be a nightmare and i'm already not looking forward to it), and the weirdest part will be coming back home afterwards - not staying behind. i hope i see some people i know, but i dont really want to try and coordinate that right now. i want to do that on my own time, with access to a car.

i've been home since saturday, and i've talked to a handful of people. megan called for me, claire knew i was coming home, bob even called. i saw jake at church, and i called shila myself. glo knew i was coming home. i talked to carrie online...i'm just trying to catalogue all the people in my mind. my supposed best friend didnt contact me in any form all summer, as well as some other people. i'm not really dissappointed, not sad either. not even with shannon. it going to be hard being in kennesaw with very few people that are my actual friends. there are people that i could hang out with, but there are just people from high school that haven gotten around to moving on/out.

i miss alot of people from camp. i'm quietly trying to adjust being at home. i dont feel like i was gone for two months. my life was just on pause, or so it seems. i cant believe i left home in may and now its august. time went by so slowing and so quickly. i want all my counselor buddies to be here with me. because you're together 24/7, life is so intense and intimate, and its somewhate hard to not be around these people. i miss my spanish campers the most. i really should write letters and send emails out.

i must sleep now. i'm struggling to keep my eyes open. i cant wait to find the typos in the morning.
