Time for an update. I seem to be doing that less and less lately.
School starts again next week. I purposely scheduled myself Monday through Wednesday only, in order to preserve time for my cousin Amy's wedding in February. Now my mother says we'll be staying in Michigan through that Monday, which totally negates my plans. But then, I guess there's nothing stopping me from flying home by myself in order to not miss class.
Still need to find a dress for that shindig, by the way. Sadly, all the dresses to be found in Florida are flimsy little things that could not possibly stand up to a Michigan February. Come to think of it, I don't have a real winter coat, either. I have my brand new Johnny Cash "Man in Black" hoodie (which Trevor got me for Christmas. Squee!), and a couple jackets, and that's it.
Looking back on 2005, I realized I'd accomplished a lot as far as claiming my independence and moving on. I got my driver's license, I started school, and all that fun stuff. I don't want to stop moving forward, and so I'm getting my braces off in two weeks. Got sick of vacillating on the issue of surgery and decided a decision must be reached regarding the whole thing, and I decided to just forget about it. So off come the braces.
I think I'll get my hair done after that. I was going to do that after the surgery, but now there's no reason to wait.
I'm hoping to get moving on my writing again soon, but as long as I'm doing school and two jobs, I don't see myself getting much time for that. And that saddens me. But I'm also hoping to be able to quit Kmart soon. I'm in a different department now than I was two years ago; much more bearable and not as frustrating. But it still takes up way too much time. Nothing so pointless as folding mens' clothes.
