What an interesting past week or so it has been.
I’ve really been working hard at making sure college happens this Fall. Even if it doesn’t, I do have a back up plan, but it’s one I would hate to resort to: community college. Now, there’s absolutely nothing whatsoever wrong with community college, but it’s not what I want to do at this point in my life. I want to go to a university. Period. I will do everything I can to make it happen.
It’s been stressful a bit lately. I have had a few medical bills roll in that I didn’t realize I would be getting. Time to figure out how to pull those off. I mean, of course I can pay them, they just came up unexpectedly, so I’ll have to shift a few things around to make it work. Oddly enough, I enjoy paying bills. It gives me a great sense of independence. I dare you to find another 20 year old that can say that, but it’s very true. I like knowing that I can do that on my own and that I don’t need to depend on anyone else.
I have also been seeing friends a lot lately, and it’s helped me a lot. I’m so used to only seeing family and not really going out or doing anything. In the past few days, I’ve been out a lot, but not doing much of anything at the same time. It’s nice to just be able to relax and have a conversation with someone. I’ve enjoyed if very much. It almost feels like I’m on a mini-vacation – I’m house sitting for a friend, so I have as much freedom as I want. It’s quite refreshing, but strange at the same time. I don’t have to ask to go anywhere, which is new. Not that my parents are strict about me going out, but sometimes I don’t like asking.
Anyways, so the point of this was to say where I want to be right now. If you are driving on Highway 101 going towards Forks, Washington, there is a beautiful lake called Crescent Lake. It’s water is clear like Hawaii, and the trees and landscape is just stunningly beautiful.
I absolutely love going there. At the moment, I want to curl up under one of the trees and grab a book. It sounds so incredibly amazing right now. Unfortunately, it’s a good 2 hours away from me, and it’s night time, so I don’t think I’m going to make that drive. Perhaps I’ll head out that way soon.
I really hope all my readers are doing well. Until next time, good night.
