Hi again, everybody! For anybody that noticed I was gone, I’m back! Obviously school is not keeping me busy enough. Anyway, I’m bored and I feel like talking about myself, and none of you know anything that’s happened to me in the past two months, so. . .
First of all, about three weeks ago I officially became a college freshman here at Sam Houston State University. I’m majoring in English which I plan to teach on the high school level. I really love college life, being able to go home after each class and stay out late if I want (although I usually have no where to go, but I can!). I almost joined a sorority, but I was saved from that fate by the fact that they didn’t want me. Then I tried joining the Catholic Student Center, but that was just too weird. I finally decided on the Student Pagan Association, and now I’m happy.
The other really big thing in my life is that about four weeks ago I became engaged to Carl, my boyfriend of 11 months (a year on Oct. 3). I’m very very happy, but I can’t tell my mother for fear she’ll flip out. Not to worry, I have no intentions of leaving school to get married; we’re waiting the four until I graduate, and he’s even thinking about going back to school. Not only will this keep us from ending up as fry cooks at McDonald’s, but it’ll give us time to be sure that we are truly meant to be together. And really, what’s four years if we’re going to spend our lives together?
Oh, also, a little over a week ago I had my debut as Janet Weiss in the Rocky Horror Picture Show. After being on the sidelines for almost a year, finally playing was a huge thrill. Plus Carl got to undress me onstage. (He plays Riff.)
So, that’s pretty much all that’s been going on with me. If anybody has a comment/question or wants to share the latest details of their life, I’m dying to hear it. Meanwhile, it’s just nice to be back.
The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation.
