I think it’s time for an update. Just because. Point! It’s finally FALL BREAK!!! And it’s just like it was last year.

I’ve been waiting for this day, excitement increasing as it approached, and now that it’s finally here… I’m sitting with nothing else to do. Oh I could watch TV, read a book… simple pleasures, right? At least, nothing that seems worth doing, which I suppose isn’t that bad. It’s just my attitude, I guess. Every second not spend doing something amazing should be spent preparing for something amazing. Haha, it really is a terrible way to live, but that’s how I feel like I’m living. Simple contentment… it’s been a while since I’ve really just been positive with anything. And that… dear readership, has to change.

I had an interesting moment of thought after I got home tonight. The house was eerily quiet, and I was eating dinner. Suddenly, Scout (my dog, refer to… oh dammit, broken link) starts barking and frantically rushing back and forth from where I sat to the dark full wall window. I half-expected a pack of banshees floating up to our house, but upon inspection, my mom delcared that it was just “her car”.

“See Scout? That’s my car!” she said. “Nothing to worry about…” She pulled scout back from the window, but he kept returning. Something seemed off; it was like in the movies, where you KNOW something is going to happen, in spite of the characters’ not very comforting words. I had this growing fear and expectation that some creature/baddie was going to break through the window–or maybe the door–come clawing its way through up to where I was sitting and… then I wondered what it would be like, to be running for my life without anything to return to. How terrible it must be…

…but nothing happened. Scout patrolled the window for another minute, before sitting back down in his demented way, with his legs curled up
under him. I finished my dinner, and decided my life would be eternally boring, and that I should just do my math homework.

I’ll write a real entry later. Nick’s coming. I’m taking a nap. My bed is exactly the way I left it last. Heh. Oh and how things have changed since…
