"Now that I can see you..... I don't think you're worth a second glance."
CURSES!!!! I am smited by technology! Everytime I try to go to someone's site this godforsaken machine craps out!! It's working pretty good right now but who knows how long it'll last. Will this post even go through? I hope so. I can't even read anymore of my comments... argh!!
Anywho... I'm really happy. Which I guess is good news. I don't really know right now.... haven't slept in a while. 2:45am... tick tock.... what was I saying? Oh yeah.. happy... I am. Almost exstaticly so. Did I spell that right? For more than a year now I've planned on working at Covenant House when I turn 21... that's the youngest you can be working there. But I was really indecisive about what to do in the meantime. Until now of course. Building houses in Mexico is one of the only things that makes me happy nowadays and just once a year doesn't seem like enough to me. In either September or October I'm going with Habitat For Humanity to build a house in Alaska. If I have time I'll build another one after that before my 18th birthday. Once I'm 18 I'm joining the Peace Corps. Just thinking about it makes me really happy. My mom supports my decision... which I find strange. It was actually her idea. Only she wants me to do this instead of Covenant House. That would completely defeat the purpose of this whole time plan I've got going on. Katelyn doesn't understand why I'd want to do any of it. She asked me if I'd regret missing out on things "normal" kids our age do. I told her that if I was worried about that I'd be doing "normal" things right now like blow drying my hair(hell, I'd brush my hair more often), wearing make-up, dating, going to parties, getting drunk/high, or actually going to school. I should have a job though.... it's #1 on my to do list right now.
I wonder if I'll be able to go to everyone's sites now. It'll probably take forever but I'll just play a game of Spider Solitaire while each page loads.
I wish I could sleep.
