Becoming a Kid

Post by becomingbutterfly » Thu Aug 01, 2013 4:12 am

Well, this summer has been superbly amazingly awesome! Some of the big highlights were going to my first pro baseball game, rafting down the river, going to a water park, watching a dolphin circus, acting as a wonderful character role in a play, and bungee jumping from 130 feet up! Wahoo!

I've also done a lot of crazy wacky fun things like ordering water from McDonalds, pushing all the buttons in the electronics store, sitting on all of the mattresses in the mattress store, squishing all the furniture in the furniture store, and crawling through a little kid playground after hours!

And I've also been pulling funny pranks like putting vanilla pudding in a sour cream container and eating it, putting blue Gatorade in a spray bottle and drinking it, drawing faces on all the eggs in the house, wearing a sign that says life and handing out lemons, hugging all the stuffed animals in the toy store and telling the store workers that their toy trucks are cool. :D

I've had some adventures that I never would have considered before. My best friends and I still have a list of amazingly cool things to finish up before I leave. And to top it all off, I got called by a radio station offering me a summer job as an office assistant! It's the best work environment I've ever seen, and all the people are so beautiful and loving and wonderful.

21 days til school! Oh and I emailed my roommate and we are really similar! We shall be friends fo sho!

So, if you haven't had an adventure this summer, go have one! Do something silly! I'm telling you, it's totally worth it. Oh and P.S. Deep fried cookie dough and deep fried oreos are amazinggggg. :D

Just wanted to drop a couple happy notes here.

My brothers both start school this week. I'm so proud of them and happy for them. The older one got into advanced classes and is trying out for as many sports as he can to see if he can get on a team. The younger one is making friends left and right and has the most amazing, supportive, fun teachers.

A couple weeks ago, I finished EMDR, so I'm done with therapy! My T said I was set to go! :D

And. Today is the day. I can't sleep from excitement. My bags are packed, my feet are itching, my heart is flying, and soon I will be 2000 miles away at my dream school. I'll miss my siblings and friends, but I will be with people who share my ideals. Today, I fly to make new friends, find new wings, seek new horizons.
