August Update

Since this month is so busy, it seemed like a good idea to have a little update about what's going on in my life lately.

On the twentieth of August, I will officially be a college student at Georgia State University. I am very excited and a little nervous. On top of that, I have really exciting news: I am going to be working with Georgia State's English Department, specifically with the Writing Studio. This is a great opportunity for me to meet people who work in the field and are willing to give me advice. This job is going to put money towards my tuition as well. All I have to do is fill out some more paperwork, and speak with a couple of people about my  payroll and job responsibilities.

My brother is also going to be moving to Thailand in The Fall (probably October). He's going to be an English teacher for a year or two. I'm very happy for him. I'm also saving up my money to buy a plane ticket so I can trek over there myself. Yay for 14 hour plane rides! Aside from the heat, I think I would really enjoy Thailand. They don't call it the 'Land of a Thousand Smiles' for nothing. The people are friendly, the jungles and beaches are beautiful, and the food is amazing. If you have not had Thai food, you definitely need to.

More recently, I've been enjoying my last weeks of summer with my friends before it ends. I've been smoking hookahs, going to drag shows, going hiking, and I've even started watching Game of Thrones. I plan on going to Dragon Con, and I'm very excited for the upcoming Dead Can Dance concert. I haven't had much time to do any posts until now, but I'm sure you guys understand. I hope everyone has had an enjoyable Summer. Until next post, people!

Dead Can Dance is the shit...Seriously, I love them. I have since middle school, which definitely says something about them.
