Let's see. There's really no point in rehashing everything that's happened in the last seven months. But hey, here are some highlights. I'm still living in an apartment with nickelodeon, and things are excellent. We make awesome roommates, even if I am terrible about remembering to do the dishes. We're ridiculously similar in so many ways. I can be my ridiculous nonsensical self with her, and not only does she tolerate it, most of the time she joins in. It's fabulous.
In January the two of us took a trip to Reykjavik, Iceland. It was my first trip outside of North America, and my first big vacation without my parents. And it was an amazing trip. The country itself lies on the border between tectonic plates, so there are active volcanoes and earthquakes that shape the land. We visited waterfalls, glaciers, geysers, and fissures created by the plates moving apart. We went horseback riding through the countryside on Icelandic Horses who have been isolated on the island since they were brought there hundreds and hundreds of years ago. We went caving in a lava tube and heard a traditional ghost story in complete darkness. We ate traditional Icelandic food and fell in love with Skyr, a yogurt-like product famous for being high in protein and low in calories. We bathed in thermal pools. We stood on black sand beaches and watched the waves roll in. We went hunting for the Northern Lights. The sun rose at 11am and the sunsets seemed to last for hours. In short, it was a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and I'm so glad I went. There's a TON more I could say, but...this is already going to be a ridiculously long entry.
Other than that...let's see. I'm still working at Barnes & Noble, although I really need to get a real job. The problem is that I love working at B&N. The people I work with are awesome, and I just...love books. The problem is the pay, obviously. I'm working part time and getting an hourly wage. Boo. The other problem is that I have no idea what sort of job I'm even looking for, and I'm really not looking forward to the whole job search thing.
Oh! Also! serasarahhhh has come to visit us twice in the last couple months. She needs to move up here and live with Steph and me. It would only be the best thing ever.
AND! Last week I turned 24. I feel old. It's BIZARRE.
AND, AND! I'm obsessed with How to Train Your Dragon. Great movie. Worth a mention.
I could probably ramble for a lot longer about my life, although that's not a whole lot more going on. I'm still RPing at mallowmateys, which is an excellent time. I spend a lot of time doing that. Haha. All right, I think I'll wrap this up here. I'm going to actually try to update more often now. I was reading through some of my diaries from when I was in middle and high school, and I love being able to look back and see what I was doing at different points in my life, and looking back on my LJ does the same thing. And I want to be able to look back on this later. So...yeah. Updating more often is now a legitimate GOAL!
I missed you, flist. How the hell have you been?
