Throwing truffles to the dying embers///

Song of the Day:  Beck> New Pollution

Wow. It has been a long time since I have had the time to write in this wonderful little blog of mine. I know so much has happened in my precious little life, but some things are not worth mentioning or remembering. There are only a handful of good things to report:

-College life resumes on August 30th. I will be starting my Junior year and finishing up my wonderful art history degree. A few weeks ago, I took this writing assessment to see if I need to take a English class or if I can just take a "writing intensive" class. Hopefully, I will know something by Friday.

-I am a roller derby girl. Back in July, I tried out to become a member of the Sacred City Derby Girls. I passed the test and I am now a "Fresh Meat" member! The training is not fun. Last week, we had 2 days back to back of 3 hour practices. I was sore for 3 days! I just came home from practice today. I know this pain is worth it. Someday, "Manda Smash" will make her derby debut. I am so happy that I am making new friends (cause I don't have too many lady friends) and getting a hardcore work out will be greatly appreciated... Especially if it gets me under 200lbs!

-Paul and I celebrated our 4th year together. I am so glad that my best friend is the person that I want to spend my life with and get old and crazy with. His birthday is coming up soon. He will be 28, then, 4 months later, I will be 27.

-Tomorrow: Seeing the "screening" of "Scott Pilgrim vs. The World". Coincidentally, one of my new derby friends is going too. Small world.
