I'm all moved out of Norman.  It's kinda a weird feeling, especially since I still work in Norman.  And I'm actually in Norman right now, sitting on Kirsten's couch not watching Cape Fear.  Moving was awful.  I have way too much stuff.  Which is an odd statement for me to make since I don't feel like I have things that other people don't have.  I unwillingly saw the sunrise two days in a row while were unpacking/finishing up.  It was not my idea of fun.  I'm so exhausted that I don't even know how I'm actually awake and typing right now.  The worst part is that we put most of the stuff in a storage unit, which means I still have to go through it all and move it to Edmond.

So this brings me to my summer goals.  Tracy has deemed this her learning summer.  Mine is going to be known as "The Summer of the Purge."  I have decided to purge my belongings.  Which means I'm going to get rid of a lot of my stuff.  I mean, I'll still probably have waaaay more stuff than most people, but I want to have a lot less stuff clogging up my surroundings.  Also, my second goal is to write a movie script.  I started working on one for a class I was in this last semester and I really liked thinking that way, meaning the way you have to think when you're writing something for the screen.  It's so different than writing it in novel format, which is actually the way I originally wrote this particular story in, because you have to figure out a way to express the way a character is feeling.  You can't just have someone say they feel uncomfortable when they're on a first date or something because that wouldn't happen in real life.  You'd have to write it so that the characters movements/actions reflect how they're feeling in a natural way.  It's so challenging, but so incredibly rewarding.  And fun!  

I like watching Emily try to drink my beer. hahaha  And I'm so thankful for all of you who read this, because I know you love me!  You know I love you!!!

"A mirror reflects a man's face, but what he is really like is shown by the kind of friends he chooses." -Proverbs 27:19 

“Heaven is totally overrated. It seems boring. Clouds, listening to people play the harp. It should be somewhere you can’t wait to go, like a luxury hotel. Maybe blue skies and soft music were enough to keep people in line in the 17th century, but Heaven has to step it up a bit. They’re basically getting by because they only have to be better than Hell.” - Joel Stein, Columnist for the Los Angeles Times
