Elton John and Billy Joel...

...were amazing! Just so amazing! I'm taking this opportunity to finally blog about it because my lovely friend from work Natalie is straightening my hair. Which she loves to do. I'm not complaining about it either.

Anyway, the concert was just perfect. And being home for the first time in 6 months was fantastic. Norman was wonderful, even though I was there for such a short amount of time. Seeing my family at home was great too. I just wish that Terry could've been there too, but I saw him the week before (when I saw Laura!!!!!). I never whined more then when I had to go to the airport. I wanted to lay on the couch and watch movies with my mom forever.

Hopefully I'll make a blog about those adventures soon. I'm so behind! I suck!

Well here's a vid from my fave part of the concert.
In case you couldn't tell, Elton and Billy were playing the great song "Oklahoma" while the crowd sang along and then went straight in to "Piano Man." It was epic.

Also, my new goal is that I must learn all the words to "We Didn't Start the Fire" because it's so awesome and crazy.

"We didn't start the fire,
It was always burning since the world's been turning,
We didn't start the fire,
No we didn't light it but we tried to fight it"

For a long time I had already pretty much made up my mind about whether or not I want to live in Florida longer, but I've been really scared for a long time to say it definitely out loud.

Well, now that my (and Dan's) self imposed March 1st deadline has passed I guess I must now say it out loud.

I am going to stay in Florida for at least another year!

Wow, how anticlimactic was that?!

I'm very excited and also very scared. Right now I'd say 70% terrified 30% excited. We shall see. I did find out that I can extend my program again until August, so that helped me make the decision a lot, since for 2 extra months I'll be guaranteed full time hours. Then after that I'll just be poor while I wait for my status to change to full time. Plus, I plan on using this year to try and get in to the communication department here. Or find out how to do that. I've got to grow up sometime, right?

Dan is staying and Emily's coming back to live with us, so if nothing else at least I'll have two awesome roommates. The dates of our move in and where we are going to live are still to be determined, but hopefully it'll be all ironed out by the time Emily comes to visit in April!

I'm going to miss Oklahoma very much, but I'll be back for at least a week, hopefully more, to go to Peter's graduation and pack up my furniture to bring it down here.

So now that I've posted this, I guess it's official! This girl is on her way to being a grown up?
Psh, never.
