*peeks head around the corner*….heh….have you missed me? I can’t believe I’ve neglected my blog for two whole weeks! I do have a good reason though; a few actually. After my violin recital and auditions for orchestra, I totally flipped out. My body was completely stressed out for about two weeks, and it hasn’t been snapping back very easily. My adrenal glands caved in on me, so I’ve been spending a lot of time trying to recuperate them—taking several natural supplements, getting plenty of sleep, spending a lot of time doing rewarding activities with my family. It’s helped somewhat, and I guarantee that I’ll be doing a lot better soon, but that’s what’s been going down.
In other news….I’m getting glasses. During my strange symptoms of adrenal fatigue, I have also been getting a lot of nasty headaches. I thought I’d get my eyes checked out, just to make sure that they were ok. Well, it turns out that they’re not horrible, but with all of the time that I spend on the computer (heehee), and doing other things that cause eye strain, I’ve developed a bit of an astigmatism in my left eye, and I’m having focusing issues—my left and right eye won’t sync together correctly. So, I don’t know if I’ll need glasses forever, but I’ll at least have them until my astigmatism and focusing can be corrected. I can’t wait to get rid of my headaches! My mom said “It’s a good thing the current style of glasses looks good on you.” Hahaha. She maketh me laugh. ^_^
I think my room really needs to be cleaned and organized. I’m not a very organized person….ok, I’m not an organized person at all….ok, I’ve earned the title “Messy Marvin” from my mom. :/ But, it’s finally starting to get to me having clothes laying everywhere, and junk randomly scattered about my room. I think it might be because I’ve got a renewed fervor for beauty—my brother bought me an orchid!!!!!! It’s soooo pretty. It’s my favoritest thing in the whole wide world. ^_^ (and “favoritest” is absolutely a word). Please pray that I’ll be able to keep it alive. Haha. I had a horrible dream last night that it died; just a little snapshot of it all dried up and wilty. :(
Speaking of dreams…I also dreamed last night that my dad was a Jack-in-the-box. He had swirly eyes and was really creepy. Bizarre.
Oh….I almost forgot to tell you all—I made orchestra!!!! I won’t know what chair I’m in until this fall (we’re going to have another audition for that I think), but I do know that I’m in the first violins section. So, I’m very excited about that. I can’t wait to get started on everything! It’s going to be a blast, and hopefully it’ll get my skills all brushed up and snazzy. ;)
My writing has become far less eloquent as of late—for those of you who greatly miss it; I’m sorry. I really like to write that type of stuff, but it just takes such a long time. I can’t get myself to take the time to do it very often. However, I do have a couple of posts in the works that I will be posting sometime in the next couple of months. So, I hope you’ll keep reading even though I may not be quite as “profound” most of the time anymore. :P
I saw the new Star Trek the other day. *sigh* It’s like the coolinest movie since ever! Ok, it may not be for everybody, but having been a Trekkie since….birth…it was a completely invigorating experience. It commemorated the old movies and TV shows so well! It didn’t feel like a trendy remake to please the general public (although it probably did), they actually took into account all of the classic stuff in the old ones. Spock is my favorite—I think I’m going to be a Vulcan, because they’re amazing.
Ok, so I could ramble on, but I won’t. Until next time “Live long and prosper”.
