I’ve never liked summer, as long as I can remember. Maybe it’s the heat? Maybe it’s the feeling that I have absolutely nothing to do? (Yes, school DOES comprise that much of my life.) But that can’t quite be it. After all, I actually have a lot to take up my summer this year!

First and most obvious: I have to study for the LSAT. The path to becoming a lawyer isn’t easy and the first step is taking the Law School Admission Test.¬† The test actually has nothing to do with one’s knowledge of the test. It’s more of an Analytical Reasoning/Logic test; an IQ test if you will. As confident as I am in this area, I know I can’t afford to be blas√© about it as I would like. After all, if I mess it up it affects my scholarship amount and even the schools I can attend. It’s all very…tiresome. Anyway! I’m going to be spending an awful lot of time perfecting my Logic Games mastery.

I’ve also begun going to therapy again. I’ve been prescribed medication as well. Why? Well for those of you that don’t know me at all: I suffer from pretty crippling depression and anxiety. Granted, it seems like everyone on the internet does too. But it’s been over a year since I’ve gotten help of any sort. The disease has been taking of my life and I’m cautiously hopeful that this will help.

I’m also planning on staying true to my promise to revise all of my Fanfiction. It’s a pretty large collection, with over 60 stories (many of them with at least 10 chapters.) I look forward to revising my work and making it better. But it also promises to be a fearsome task. I’ve written a lot and I plan on re-doing EVERYTHING. Guh. Right along on that same creative streak I am reviving an old role play based on some personal journals. I’m really hoping that it lasts this time. I enjoy role playing. It’s a great short-term creative outlet! It also gives me an excuse to spend more time with my friend Amanda, who I’ve missed terribly. Finally! I’m getting back to playing guitar. I’m sorely out of practice and I have an entire summer to regain form!

Things with Dustin are…okay. I tend to be an over-sensitive individual and Dustin tends to be an under-sensitive brute. It’s not the best combination. A lot of the time he means well or just doesn’t realize what an ASS he’s being. The problem is that half the time, when he does realize it (eventually), he refuses to admit it or apologize for it. At least at first! And it’s that waiting period that allows me to stew in my angry juices just long enough to question the relationship as a whole. I know I care for him, but I’m not the patron saint of patience and I have a lot of stress in my life. Buh. I guess we’ll just see how that pans out. He just installed Mac OS onto his laptop…so I may even break up with him over that. Yes. I do hate Mac that much. I really, really do.

Hope your summer fairs better!
