20 years

I'm back.

Instead of posting a plethora of excuses as to where I have been, I'll let you wonder at the mystery of it.

On to more important matters... my birthday! I'm twenty years old today. Strange. I don't feel twenty, although how twenty is supposed to feel I'm not really sure. I've been alive for two decades. Wow. It is funny (not funny ha ha, but funny interesting,) to think of all the things I have done in my life, but also all the things I haven't done. Along that vein, here are some things I'd like to do in the next twenty years:

Go to Europe:
-sit at a cafe in Paris
-tour a castle in Ireland or Scotland
-spend the night in an English cottage
-swim in the ocean in Greece
-eat Italian food in Italy

Go skydiving (yes, really)
Go to Disney World
Get married
Have some kids
Publish a novel
Learn to play guitar
Pull a bank job

Ok, so the last one was a joke.

I am now officially submerged into the oceanic world that is finals week. I should be writing a paper this very minute.

And so, it is with regret that I announce to the world that I will have no time to update my blog in the next week or so. You are all heartbroken, I'm sure.

In addition to finals, I have to pack, because yes, in just one short week I am leaving these tropical shores on the proverbial jet plane, back to the frozen mountainous regions of Alaska.

And so I say "so long, farewell" to my blog for the next week.

In a fight with my boyfriend...(the ocean.)

I haven't written in so long! I have been very busy. For those of you (if anyone) who regularly read my blog, please accept my apologies.

Today, I am mad at the ocean. That's right. You read it right. My beloved ocean, whom I professed to be in love with, has picked a fight with me today.

As I was laying peacefully on the beach, nearly asleep, a huge, freakish, rogue wave washed up, and tried to kidnap my beach bag (containing my school id, debit card, cell phone, and digital camera) !!!!! I rescued the bag, but I'm pretty sure the camera and phone are dead, though. BOO! Ocean, that really hurt. You are currently on my bad side.

So now, for the last two weeks of school, I get to be cell phone-less. Arg! AND camera-less!! WHY?! I am trying to be zen about this, and say "Beth, it is too late. Don't stress. They are just 'things.'" But then I remember, oh yea, I have no money! And also, that camera was your mom's camera!

So, Ocean, today I am mad at you. Don't even try to make up with me.

And I am NEVER EVER taking electronics to the beach again.
