So...I'm supposed to be packing up my life. Which, of course, is not my idea of fun. I wouldn't enjoy it even if I didn't have enough stuff to fill an entire store. I just have so much stuff. And I love all of it. Which is why I'm having anxiety. I don't want to get rid of anything! And I want to take everything with me to Florida! Even my painting of Sam. But really, I think I just don't want to leave Norman. I know I bitch about the city a lot (and seriously, the roads here are probably what the roads in hell are like) but I really do love Norman. This is the first time I'll be moving back to Edmond since the end of freshman year and it's weird. I don't want to go! Good thing I'll just stay with Kirsten so much that she'll want to kill me. hahaha
On to more wonderful news, I bought a TiVo yesterday! I have wanted one forever and ever and I finally just used some of my graduation money and got one. It won't even be here for a week and I can already feel it making my life better. Don't judge. You know you love DVR too. And TiVo is KING of DVR.
This week has been pretty amazing. I went to a Yankee game and saw them pretty much destroy the Rangers 11-1. And I've had soo much fun with Laura and Kirsten! And I really enjoyed Sake/il dolce and the PS that was in town still. Especially the sake bombs! Playing cards with Terry and Laura and Brad was pretty great too.
Well...guess I better get to packing. Gross.
Here's my lovely quote of the post:
I'll leave you with a picture of my boyfriend. Who I saw go 5 for 5. Not on TV, in person. Amazing.

I've had this blog for a couple months now, and finally I'm writing in it. There's just something about the first post that was holding me back. I guess I wanted it to be extra special or something. And then it became this thing that I just kept putting off. Wow, that's so like me. Putting stuff off. hahaha I also haven't decided yet if I'm going to write with caps or not. I don't usually like to when I don't have to. Pushing that shift key hurts my pinky. Anyway, reading my best friends' blogs has been amazing as well. A part of me (teeny part) can't wait till we all separate so that we can read about our adventures.
I've had some thoughts about OU and I wrote them out for what was in my mind a potential column for the paper, but I never got around to finishing it. Here goes:
I think I'm going to miss a lot about this place. The crazy football fans, the tulips & mums, and the bells ringing "Boomer Sooner" & "Oklahoma." But there is a lot that I won't miss. The insufferable wind, the busy work (yes! it still exists my senior year of college), the sorority clones with their ridiculous side bows, uggs and date party t-shirts. But who knows, maybe in time I'll miss them too. Although, that's really not likely. I'll miss weeks when classes are slow and there's nothing to do but sit around with friends. I won't miss the parking hell or the droning teachers, but I'll miss driving around for fun and those few professors who you feel actually deserved your money. I'll miss being dependent on my parents, but I won't miss their rules. I'll miss my best friends most of all, but I know we'll find each other again. And again, and again and again.
Well, past my tiny column, I had the greatest weekend with the greatest friends. All starting Thursday with our destruction, then grad Friday and Saturday. Followed by the amazing party bus. Which, as you all have of course heard by now, we had a loooot of fun on. I also had a sort of epiphany there as well. But that's a story for another day.
I guess I'm terrified of the future. I'm scared that I'll never be surrounded by people like the party squad who are so much like me. Of course we're all incredibly different, but we have essentially the same heart, and I'm afraid that I won't strike gold twice. I love that these people, who are and will always be my OU family, are so much like me. As an example: some of us were on the party bus, and we were dancing like crazy at the back of the bus (of course), but when I looked up at the rest of the bus, they were all sitting, well some were vomming, and being boring. I want to be with people who aren't afraid to have fun and aren't afraid to be crazy. I want to be with people who don't care what other people think. I want to be with people who wear cowboy and indian vests to clubs, who make a game out of taking other people's trash, who get yelled out for being too loud at restaurants, who creep on each other to a level that might freak other people out. These are the kinds of people I love. And I'm gonna try hard to stay friends forever. This blog is step one.
I've also decided that I'm going to end every post with a favorite quote and a picture. Because I like those things on other people's blogs, and I like traditions. So this is my tradition. Feel free to steal it.
