All I can think about is in about a week, when it will get hectic and wonderful. Club Drage 2008 begins in T-minus 8 days! I can't wait for just eating eggs, writing on the white board, playing the piano, and sitting at the table together. I also can't wait to retreat to my room when things get too crazy. Not that I am predicting a time, but I just want something to happen so I can quietly perform the simple action of just going into my room and BOOM being alone. I half expect a tiny chorus of angels quietly humming Mozart's Requiem in the corner of Hoops's bookshelf while I celebrate staticky solitude.
The white board will be a signature of our household--despite it being present in households and dorm halls worldwide. Every morn, I shall scrawl--with the glorious ease of dry erase markers (don't you just love them)--the word of the day, today's weather, and something creative, like a quote or something. We're also going to try to memorize a Bible verse as a house every week, so that will be up there for viewers as well. So exciting.
I am making it a point to write a lot this summer. Even with this potential...probable...change in major, I can't give up my writing. All I'm thinking about lately is singing--rather, all I'm thinking about focusing on lately is singing--and then last night I watched "Becoming Jane" and fell in love with the image of writing once again. The good thing about falling in love with this image is that there is actually substance underneath it that I can fall into, plush, luscious...pluscious....substance. These flawed--or desirable--notions of pure, passionate love that Jane Austen has recently impregnated me with can be abated by the fact that it's gotten my pen moving again, in a creative fashion, something more than just journaling. It feels wonderful.
Keep me accountable for my goals this summer, dudes:
-exercise daily or at least every other day
-read---an amazing amount
-write (both fiction and song)
-learn a piano masterpiece
-learn a voice "masterpiece"
-Project Vocab--sticky notes
-Season and Trilogy Summer! (Lost, Grey's, Office, Matrix, Indie, Anna, Jones, Star Wars, Godfather, Arrested Development, 30 Days)
-watch the rain on the porch with a silky cup of coffee
-celebrate beauty, life, earth.
