Happy Birthday Harry Potter and J.K. Rowling

In honor of their birthdays today, I am going to take this opportunity to say how much I love Harry Potter and J.K. Rowling. As dorky as it may make me (but I guess my dorkiness has already been established) they were there for me when I felt completely alone. Little did I know that I wasn't alone at all, but that's a story for another day. Anyway, when I was in junior high Harry, Ron, and Hermione were my best friends. How I got into Harry Potter is a fairly long story that would probably bore even the most enthusiastic HP fans, so I'll just give you the watered down version. It is thanks to my dad and the motion picture industry that the Harry Potter books are now my favorite books of all time. Their probably the reason I am an English major. So, hats off to you J.K. Rowling. Happy Birthday.
On a different note, I had to change the background of my blog because the other one was going to disappear or something. Grrr. I really liked that other one too. Ah, well. Just one of those things I guess.
And as a funny insight, today at the gym my instructor kept slowing down the music and it made Beyonce sound like Cher. It gave me a little chuckle.
P.S. Go and see Knight and Day.
Oh, and I had an awesome Burn Notice dream last night. Good stuff.

“Parting is such sweet sorrow” my eye!

For those of you "out there" who have had the unfortunate "pleasure" to have family members or loved ones move away, you can sympathize with me when I say that it just sucks. I recently had a sister, brother-in-law, and an adorable niece and nephew move far, far away. And I do not like it. I know they moved out there for a reason and there wasn't anything I could do about it, but I miss them a lot. And I also know that the rest of my family misses them a lot and it's hard to see them all so sad about it. I miss my niece waking me up in the morning when she slept over. I miss my loveable Benny Boy's smile. I miss talking to my sister and brother. So whoever said parting is such sweet sorrow didn't know jack! Well, actually it's nice to say goodbye to the people you don't much care for. But it's when you do care that it makes so much more sorrowful than sweet.

On a different note, three weeks and then summer semester will be over and I will be that much closer to a degree. It's so close, I can smell it. And that smell kind of scares me. Who knows where I will be in one year from now?!
