Hmm...

Wow... has it really been that long since my last post?

Well.. a lot's happened since then.

One of the biggest ones were me starting college. Another was me mistakingly joining the brony fandom and creating a Tumblr account for an OC pony I made. Another would be that I attended my first Theme Park Review event and met Robb Alvey face-to-face (not conversing, just simple greets or pass-by's).

I transitioned into a really long personal rant by accident. Not necessary to read-on if you don't like those.

Well, I'm about to complete my first week of college. So far, it's been pretty good. It's great to be away from home and meeting completely new people from different parts inside and outside of Kentucky. It's also pretty good to be starting my English and Math courses already and getting those out of the way. The great part about this is that when my first semester starts int he Fall, I won't need to take math again! :D

I think that's pretty cool!

Well, I'm about to watch the movie Friday with a few people here.

Have a photo from my recent visit to Holiday World that I will publish a trip report of soon:

I also forgot to mention. I recenty made a visit to Holiday World and did a Trip Report on Theme Park Review, and on the Water Slide Database blog. Theme Park Review was more of an overview of the entire event, and the one on Water Slide Database was only a detailed review of Wildebeest and Mammoth water coasters.

I will post a trip report here eventually. Maybe this week, maybe next week. Depends on how busy I will be, how busy I make myself, or how motivated I am to do one.

Apologies if I don't do one soon.

Have another cat photo:

Well, things have happened since my last blog post. Many good things! :D Others... meh.

First of all, I finally graduated High School! The level of happiness I feel to finally have high school over... apparently hasn't struck me yet...

hmm...

I haven't really felt any kind of overwhelming happiness for the fact that I finally got high school over with. I know I should, since it's something I know that I'll never have to repeat again. But, I just don't feel anything. Maybe it's because I'm about to attend summer college in a few days...

Yeah, I bet that's probably it.

That's another thing that I have to mention. I'm about to go off to college... during the summer... which means less summer free-time... or visiting water parks for my other website Water Slide Database. :-(

Oh well. One last thing I have to announce is that I finally got my first laptop.........

Yes... MY FIRST LAPTOP! The amount of excitement for this has hit me, and I'm still smiling as I type this blog! Reason why: I'M USING IT TO TYPE THIS BLOG RIGHT NOW! :D :D :D !!!

... Sorry, had a happy moment there.

That's all I wrote this blog to tell you about. To end this, have a random photo of a cat I took today.

(It's a stray, and I've been posting various photos of this and another cat to Tumblr and Twitter all afternoon!)

I.AM.OUT.OF.HIGH.SCHOOL!

Well, technically not yet. I still have my finals to go through. Then the graduation ceremony.

Ughh, I also still have to revise a 6-page research paper for English class, and make an 8 minute video on "How to plan for summer schooling" for my Broadcast Journalism class.

Hopefully it'll pay off in the end, because after all this, I AM OUT OF HIGH SCHOOL FOR GOOD!

...

Too bad I also signed up for a summer freshman program this summer to help me get a head start on college. That takes 6 weeks out of my summer vacation.

*Sigh* I guess I won't be able to relax through all of June and July. Oh Well. I guess the bright side on that is I get to start college early. I'll finally be away from home and living on my own! I can't wait for that!

I'm probably going to miss my home though, but I'll probably get over it.

Anyways, before any of that stuff happens, I'll have a couple of weeks to actually relax and stuff. OH, and I'll also be visiting a certain amusement park for a certain event that I certainly enjoyed last year! (*hint, hint, wink, wink!*) So I should be able to get in my fill of summer break before the work starts up again.

p.s. I haven't posted a photo in a while, so why not post a random one here?!

Just wanted to share this awesome song I found on YouTube. This just might beat my already favorite song "Autumn Insomnia Session" by the Flashbulb.

This song is called "CAFO" and it's by a band from Washington, DC called Animals as Leaders.


The music video fro it can be found here since it doesn't allow embedding. Be warned though, there are some gross things that pop up within the video. Other than that, the music video only makes the song that much cooler!

Spontaneous Vacations, and a Greyhound

So far, my Spring Break kicked off when my dad and I flew to Minnesota to visit the Mall of America. The funny story behind it was that my dad asked me what I wanted to do for Spring break two days prior to leaving for MoA. I told him that I've always wanted to go to the Mall of America. Before I knew it, my dad had booked roundtrip flights for us to visit the mall in one day, and come back home in the same day!

Having to leave the state, do something, and come back in the same day also meant that we had to catch an early flight. A reeeealyt early flight. How early? Let's just say I had to wake up at 4:00am that morning.

As crazy as that plan sounded, it worked out perfectly. We never had to spend the night! (We never needed to in the first place.) We left home in the morning, visited the mall which was merely a walking distance from the airport, then we flew right back home! I wrote a trip report on my visit here if you want to go through the photos and video.

That trip was... *checks calendar*... four days ago. I stayed in Kentucky for two days before I did another spontaneous trip and flew down to Atlanta, Georgia to visit my mom. That is where I am typing this blog post BTW.

I don't have any plans for what to do whatsoever. Six Flags Over Georgia is out of the question since I won't be able to visit it. I have to be back home by Friday, and the park operates weekends during the month of April.

I don't do meet-ups with people online for paranoia and other obvious reasons, so don't bother asking.

Something is probably going to pop up unannounced, just like hundreds of other spontaneous vacations and trips I've dont in the past. I just wish my family could have some sort of a plan for what to do at least a few weeks in advance so I can be able to... I dunno, prepare properly for it? But I guess things like that aren't going to change here. Hopefully I can branch away from that habit once I'm in college and able to travel on my own... with friends of course.

Hopefully I'll be able to find something to do in the mean time other than fill out scholarships, watch TV, and surf the internet. Till then, I have someone to keep me company!

Say hello to Derby!

He is a HUGE male greyhound!

He was brought from a greyhound shelter devoted to saving greyhounds from abuse.

He is sleeping on a dog bed across the room from where I'm sitting. He's a sweet dog when he's not chewing on my sneakers.

I guess he'll help keep me occupied when i'm not doing much around here, because he sure can be a handful to keep straight!

... I gotta go, he's chewing on my shoes again.
