So about two weeks ago I had this weird craving to sit down and watch a whole bunch of episodes of a t.v. show (preferably a show that I was already following), and I told Kyle about it, but he had a ton of homework to do, so, it didn't really work out. The t.v. show "Bones" is a show that we enjoy and have just started following, so it was a mutual agreement. When we were available to do so, we were set to have a Bones marathon. If you don't know what show I'm talking about, it's sort of like CSI, but way better ;), but an anthropologist and an FBI agent work together to solve murders (sounds kinda morbid I know, but it's sooo good). Anyway, so I decided to search all of the local Blockbuster's to see if I was going to be able to rent any season, I really didn't even care which one, but it's Tallahassee... which means, that it was not available. Just out of curiosity, I looked up how much it would be to purchase from Walmart [greatest store ever], and it was about $40 :/ . We actually decided to just go for it and split the cost, so after dinner we drove to Walmart and looked. We get to the T.V. section of the store and we only saw seasons 2 and 4, so I asked one of the workers and she said "what's on the racks, is what we have", so I was bummed to say the least, until I just happened to notice that on the pack of dvd's that said "the complete second season" was another disk, labeled "the complete first season".. it was a multi-pack.. and it was $35! Who doesn't like a deal like that?!!? Needless to say, we've already watched the first 6 episodes, and plan on continuing relentlessly every waking moment of free time that we have... praise the Lord that Spring Break is next week!!

If you're like me, most everything you do is last minute. It's not that I intentionally don't do things, it's just that i "don't have time" until it's almost too late.. or so it seems, and then I have a million things that all NEED to be done within a short period of time. I know a girl who waits until the last minute for everything, school related that is, and she actually scores better when she is under pressure, as opposed to when she spends the time studying. I wish I could be like that, and sometimes I try to convince myself that I am so that I won't worry so much, but it never works! I have also noticed that my attention span when I am cramming, is much lower than when I have the ability to work at ease. There is definitely something to be said about accomplishing things way in advance; it just gives me a feeling of success and relief that I actually went through with something. Maybe one day I'll actually learn, but then again, I always find myself saying that...

So I've never been one to write down my thoughts, but it seemed only fitting. These days, there's a lot going on, not only with me, but with everyone, and even if no one reads this, I feel like it could serve as a self check-up. Something I could look back on in the future and see how I felt about something at the time, or what was going on in my life. I know for me, I love finding an old batch of pictures, or an old note that you thought you had thrown away, the memories just flood back to you like it was yesterday, so I hope that I can look at this and see how much I've grown over time.
