Happy Tuesday

I've had to take a break from writing and editing and it bugs me every single day but I've realized that as much as I hate it, it really is necessary. There has been so much stuff to do lately that I'm positive I would be failing right now if I was trying to work on Rise of the Phoenix too.

Last week I had two midterms and a test. I barely studied for my Psych test so that I could really do well on my two midterms and it shows. Today I got back my grades for the English midterms and I 'bout did a happy dance in the middle of both classes. 100% A+ for World Lit and 93% A on the Graphic Novel test.

I finally feel like putting my book on hold was a good decision and that it's making difference. Also, I feel like a badass, but that's just because I like As. :)

Have you ever given something up and wondered if you made the right choice? Is there something in particular that makes your hard work worthwhile?

C'est la vie.

My cello instructor is a great man. Not only can he impersonate Yoda and Chewbaca, but he also genuinely cares about people. I'm having a bit of a rough patch already this semester, something that seems to happen every semester for some reason, and do you know Casey told me? "C'est la vie." Such is life.

I don't know how to take this. No matter what I do or who I spend time with, people continuously have mean things to say about me, things that aren't true, things that are meant to hurt me. And I don't know why. I try to be a good person and be nice to people. I don't spread rumors or get into other people's business. So why do these things keep happening to me? Because that's just the way life is?

First I was having an affair with a married man. Then I was stealing the same guy away from his new girlfriend. I'm telling lies, acting strange, looking for power and getting into Fraternity business that doesn't concern me, AND I am now a closet lesbian because I cut my hair. And the worst part about this is that according to the person who was confronted about all of this, it is my roommate who happens to be one of my closest friends who is saying all of these things.

I've tried to be kind to people. I've tried staying out of their business. I've tried being myself. Nothing I do seems to be good enough for anyone and frankly I'm tired of it. Is this the way life's supposed to be? Yes, I know that no matter where you go there's drama and BS, but really?

It's mid semester and I'm ready to be away from all of these people. Switching schools has never looked better but I don't know if it's the right thing to do. Maybe it's just these people at this school, but seriously, was I the only one who missed the memo that said college was about being the biggest ass imaginable to those around you? Or is that just a life in general rule?

What's the deal? I was told life would get better after high school, which by the way was not the best time of my life at all, but instead things just keep getting worse.

I know this has nothing to do with anything, though I suppose it could make one heck of a novel someday, but I needed to let it out and see what the rest of the world has to say about life and drama.

Do you have any drama? Is life the way you thought it would be?

Sunday Apology

School is all I seem to have time for these days and it makes me incredibly sad that I can't find the time to get on here and give you all something to read on a regular basis. Unless I was to update on school and things I'm reading and doing, but even that would be difficult.

Right now I'm taking time out from working on a review for a midterm I have on Tuesday for my Graphic Novel class. Wednesday I have a test for Psychology that I desperately need to cram for. And Thursday is my World Lit Midterm.

Tomorrow I've got to find a way to go to all of my classes, go home for the memorial of a friend's dad who died the other day, and get back to school in time to still have a cello lesson AND get to my night class. That doesn't even include the three papers I have due next Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.

I think I might update with my paper on Alan Moore's Watchmen when I get it back, let you see what I'm writing instead of my novel. :( But hopefully in another two weeks I'll be able to get back to some form of regularly scheduled posts and to reading all of your posts as well. I miss reading all of your blogs and I know they'd help get me through all of the school drama I have if I could only find time to squeeze you all in.

Until then, I'm going to focus on my classes and keeping my GPA up so I have a chance of doing well after graduation... TTFN my friends. I hope it won't be too long before my next post!
