Doggy Time Out

Are you aware that dogs do not understand the concept of time out? Are you aware that if you attempt to put one dog in time out the other will ultimately prance to the rescue, freeing the smaller dog from the claustrophobic confines of a... doggy bed.

[no picture, I can not draw dogs. At all.]

Are you aware that one of my closest, best friends has been living in Malawi? If you were not aware of this fact, the following statement will prove to be less than celebratory for you. Alyssa came home from Malawi for a visit! Seeing her has been super fantastic and her stories are only completely amazing. She's taught me how to say "joyful sweet potato" in Chichewa. Unfortunately, in the twelve hours since she taught me that phrase, I've forgotten it; she'll have to tell me again. She also has super awesome custom pants made for her which cost roughly $10. I can't remember how much kwacha that is, but I'd pay $10 for those awesome pants.

[I tried to draw the pants. It didn't work.]

Whirring of a fan...

You know that moment when you realize you are completely alone, the moment you don't know whether to cherish or feel immensely saddened by? It is the moment where you contemplate alleviating your singularity, calling upon a familiar face for company and comfort, but for whatever reason, decide to remain in solitariness. These are the moments I now regularly find myself in, these moments that leave me both disheartened and grateful.

It is within these dejected moments that I realize that I have no one but my inner self to converse with, that I am lacking what was once an overabundance of socialization. However, I find that once I move past such trivial thoughts as whether to run the dishwasher or the washing machine first, I can sufficiently address issues I've had with myself. These moments are the lone instances where I can be myself in its truest form, and while many of my self-conversations are serious and morose, I thoroughly enjoy the revelation process.

New Hair Color

This is exciting, is it not? The background is grey because that is the color of my walls in my apartment.

I'm too tired to fully commit to an entry tonight, so this is what you get. Hey, at least it has a picture, right?

Pictures to be Printed

Well, yes, it has been quite some time since I last published an entry. And now that I think about it, I can not believe it has been so long since my last entry, let alone the fact that this blog has existed for roughly a year, give or take a week or so. This year has certainly been one of changes, big and small. Changes that have not only altered how I operate, but who I am as a person. Fortunately for those that might read this, I will not create a chronological list of momentous events that have occurred. No, for you can simply click 'older posts' for those, if you so choose to revisit them.

I will say though, this summer is mighty different from last. I am not spending my time at home in Ocean Springs, which makes my heart sad. I am living in my apartment and taking real go-to-class classes (starting in June, which is about a week and a half away.) No more on-line feverish paper-writing to fill my afternoons while I sit in front of a television playing reruns of shows on ABC Family. I don't have the joy of sitting with my dad watching John Cena on Monday nights and I don't have the pleasure of helping my mom make new dinners. Alas, this will be a summer of growing, something that is quite inevitable.

Forgoing the random transition sentence, my sister is graduating from high school this week. Oh, how that does make me feel old. And by old, I mean terrified that I am actually an adult with responsibilities and grown-up decisions. Oh, how life changes.

Spring Break 2011

So, many of my friends have constructed elaborate spring break plans as a way to occupy the free week. I, on the other hand, chose the opposite path, the path of relaxation. Many might argue, "But Brittany, I am not at school, not doing work, and I am, more or less, in the state of Florida. Doesn't that mean I am relaxed?"

No my friends, that just means you spent much of your time planning, organizing, and driving all sorts of distances. While it is definitely fun, constantly having to keep up with a group of people and compromising on how long I can be at place A before I have to get to place T (with all the other letters in between) is not my definition of true relaxation, nor was it on my agenda this year.

This is how I have spent my break, thus far:

It has been more than amazing. Thank you parents for subscribing to Netflix. I've also watched movies and whatnot. I've also eaten yummy food and yes, I've done some homework. Oh yes, and I've played an awful lot with my pup pups. =]

Enjoy your time.

I keep my promises.

I told Joe Kelly a looooooooooooong time ago that I would update my blog and include him in it. He seemed super excited about it. Well, I have sorta-kinda had ample time to update said blog; however, I have refrained for reasons I don't really have. So, since I am enjoying my first full day of spring break, I decided to draw a picture of Joe and me. Notice, we both look extremely happy to be in each other's company. (He's actually really, really happy to be hanging out with me, and I'm really, really happy that he's that excited to be my friend.)

Joe is at the beach for spring break, so I am unsure as to when he will see this. Granted he does have an intelligent phone, so it could be moments after this posts.
