The Beginning of the End

I'm about to begin my final year of college. There are still a lot of things up in the air, such as whether certain funds will come thru, and therefore, whether I live on campus or at home. There are some perks to living at home... Youtube access being one of those (I've gotten hooked on Youtube over the summer...), but I've lived on campus for the past 3 years, and it's an enjoyable challenge, living with strangers who become friends... or something. I haven't prepared much to move back on campus... or resume school, but I'll need to buckle down posthaste, since school begins in one week, and I've got some challenging classes this semester.

I'm together with all my sisters. There are 4 of us, and one has been missing for more than a year (living overseas, yes, H, who I visited around Christmastime), and the other 2 were gone for awhile over the summer. I'm enjoying the vibe from being around 3 others who think much like I do. Don't get me wrong, we are very much individual, but we share similar thought patterns and "Oh, that makes me think of - "s. We only have a few weeks left before H leaves again, but we're milking our time for all it's worth.

Today we (we meaning the four of us) went across town to one of the Asian food stores in the area. I now have enough instant noodles to last me all semester (if not all school year!). I'll have to exercise self-restraint when I'm around more instant noodles. We decided to lunch at a favorite spot down the road, but through a wrong turn or something, we discovered a Middle Eastern restaurant, and J freaked out from excitement when she saw falafel on the sign. (She visited Israel and Jordan in the spring, and discovered that she loves falafel and schwarma.) (If we had seen a sign for haggis, I would have similarly reacted, I discovered I love it when I was in Scotland in May... It tastes much better than it sounds like it would taste!) We ate a bit at the initial place, then hit up the Middle Eastern restaurant, then sighted a spot a few doors down that has Asian-style teas (Bubble/Pearl/Boba tea and milkshakes... J fell in love with Pearl Shakes while in Micronesia this summer) (Yes, we're a travelling family.) It was a great time for us all.

I've discovered I like Twitter. It sends texts to my phone... This way, I don't realize at the end of the day that I haven't used my phone at all. It also lets me "follow" my favorite Korean pop celebrities and other random people. If you wish to follow me, I am EmJayeM8. Don't expect completely logical or non-fangirl tweets, you may or may not get them. However, I only have 2 followers... so more followers would be cool... (If I have followers on Twitter, does that make me a leader???)

The hour grows late, and I need my beauty sleep. (I discovered this summer that the dark circles under my eyes weren't permanant!!!! I want to keep them away.)
