This is What Happens When You Start Finding Old Friends on Facebook

That's me, the tallest one up front, holding my baton, thirteen years old and 5 feet 9 inches tall already. Notice how all the other majorettes have medals pinned to their uniform. Not me. I couldn't be bothered with winning anything; it would have taken time away from all my socializing. We did, however, have a really good majorette line and we practiced 5 hours a day in the summer before competition and won a state championship. I think that was the last time I felt competitive about anything.

Emily, this is the same school you're in right now! Never knew you had such a legacy, huh?

What a Day This Is!

"A golden age of poetry and power
Of which this noonday's the beginning hour."--Robert Frost

She just took credit for my salad. That's not right.

I finally got all the holiday photos downloaded to Flickr and some pics of my apartment and my new bedroom look. I'm probably going to be leaving Columbia after graduation (in May!!!!!) and wanted to take a few pics of the apartment before I moved away. I saved the Christmas pics to a separate set so you family members can view them without having to look at all the pics of my new quilt.

Abby and I have really enjoyed being joined at the hip for the last five weeks. When I go back to school/work next week my lap will probably freeze due to the lack of the 9-lb breathing, heating pad that's been perched on me every minute.

I don't have anyplace to go Tuesday, so I get to stay home and watch the inauguration. Don't think I've ever had the opportunity to watch the entire event live.

Finished This book and highly recommend it. Of course, the movie is in theatres now and I'd like to see it, too. Currently reading this one and am loving it. Finished Season Two of this series last week and cried my eyes out during the last episode. I think, visually, this is the best series I've ever watched. I also think it's pretty accurate historically.

Now I need to get moving and get something, at least one thing, accomplished today.

Happy New Year Already

When last we met, I was lounging around enjoying all my free time. That was short-lived. I ran my legs off the remainder of my two weeks in Arkansas, trying to spend time with everyone and have fun and eat like a famine was predicted. I have some photos to download to Flickr and I'll try to do that this week, but right now I have reading to do and organizing and decorating and some Netflix movies to watch, so I'll see you later this week!
