Well, there’s been a slight pause in posts, to say the least, but, well, I’ve been rather busy. So I guess I’ll start off where I left off, about three weeks ago. School’s stepped up a bit, especially government, which I love, and the case analysis and it’s just wonderful to absorb all this law. Definitely given my chosen field of study a push in a right direction. Speaking of studying, I finally started my college application process (well, seriously started, I was tinkering around before), and have chosen three canidtes, my primary choice is the University of Washington, followed by Western Washington University, and finally Washington State University, with a Law, Societies, and Justice major. Last weekend I retook the SAT in Shelton, and it was a wonderful day: rainy, windy, and excessively cold in the test facility. Perhaps I’ll improve on my miserable 1890 scored on the test I took in March 2005. Results due the 21st of November.
Today was interesting as well, and I’ll have to explain it. First off, I have my senior portraits at 11:00AM in Shelton, but Nina decided she wanted to go, but also choose to be on the phone 20 minutes before we leave, but during the conversation, she got angry and as a result, Dad didn’t go and Nina was forced to go (mainly because for birthday shopping in Olympia), even though she changed her mind. So we get there, and I wasn’t really keen to get these pictures, I mean, why spend all this money when we could get a perfectly nice “L” series lens instead? But the people who did it were really good, even forced one or two genuine smiles out of me (quite an achievement). So we go off to Olympia, of course my mom had to say something about the fact that I met Alia here, Miss her? Much. Once there, I’m needing caffeine, and of course, there’s a Starbucks nearby (did you know that they’re named after the first mate in Moby Dick?), but they got my order incorrect, I wanted a “Peppermint Mocha Frappuccino” but I got a “Peppermint Mocha” instead, which was a surprise; it turned out I needed it, since Nina then proceeded to spend two hours in American Eagle shopping, so I just glanced at some stuff, figured out what I wanted next time I felt like clothes shopping (which is rare), and sat in the leather armchairs consuming mass quantities of caffeine, it wasn’t such a bad way to spend 120 minutes, actually, I could think of worse punishments.
I haven’t been doing that much camera stuff recently, just a smattering here and there when I get the opportunity, and the same with uploading pictures and such, when I get around to them I will. This four day weekend is nice, I need to catch up on my sleep (I might not have gotten enough in recent weeks), and included with the 4.5 day break later in the month for thanksgiving, I might be slightly less irritableness someday, that might be nice for a change. So that’s all I can remember to say right now, so I’ll stop my incessant rambling. 8^)
