home, finally

I have finally gotten home after two months in Starkville. I will
have to say I missed it a little. If nothing else than to sleep in a
comfortable bed, and the tend to my garden, which, thanks to my
parents, have been slightly neglected. I have spent the day weeding,
and since today is such a wonderful day, I could ask for nothing
else, well, besides a home cooked meal, which I also got. I am also
looking forward to tomorrow, as it promises church and more of the
same. I love being ahead in school work.

I'm done

I have now finished everything I needed to do before fall break. I
am so happy about that. I can now just sit and coast through the
next two days, waiting for my real vacation to begin. I haven't been
home in two months, and I must say I am looking forward to coming
back and seeing the garden and fixing everything. My high school's
homecoming is this weekend as well, so that will give me something to
do when I get back on Friday, so I won't be alone the entire time I
am home, not that it will bother me to be alone and enjoy the time in
solitary contemplation. It is a very good feeling to be ahead.

I'm still busy

Okay, perhaps I need to update this thing more frequently that once
every three weeks. I'd say the most amazing thing that has happened
in this time was the tornado across campus. I was inside the dorm
doing my laundry at the time. There was no cloud per say, but you
could tell where the tornado was because of the debris. It passed
only thirty feet in front of me. It was rather terrifying. It
happened very quickly. I was doing laundry, the power went out, the
winds violently picked up, and I saw the tornado pass. It took no
more than 30 seconds. About five minutes afterward the sirens went
off. And we had to go into the basement. And we had to stay there
for an hour and a half even though it had already passed. It was
pitch black and hot. That was the worst part. I was beginning to
fell very agitated toward the end of my captivity. I was even a bit
angry, I really do not like being held against my will. Several
buildings on campus were damaged and morning classes on Monday were
canceled. It was an F1.
Otherwise, life around here is pretty average. My classes are
killing me, I will not be taking this many classes ever again. I
have a paper, and two projects to do. It is quite strenuous.
