I'm switching to a new blog: www.lighterrant.wordpress.com -- in my last unupdated post this didn't work - now it does!

Wordpress is a lot more accommodating and I like the layouts better. If I have any readers left, I'd be happy to see you over there!

I like being cliché with Mathew at twilight and beyond. It's refreshing. (Albeit, cliché's aren't supposed to be refreshing.)

I used to be a cheerleader, did you know?

When you're up- you're up
When you're down- you're down
when you're messing with (insert team - antagonist - symptom)
you're up... (clap, clap, clap)
side... (clap, clap, clap)
Up. Side. Down.

I feel lackluster. Surely a side effect of summer and brain rot.

Doubt has crept into nearly every crevice of my identity today and I feel nauseous.

Israel is really over. Like, really really over. Ugh.

I'm back in K-Vegas and loving it. I rode my bike all over the place and stopped at Subway for my favorite $5 meal. Things are rapidly changing in my life, but it's nice to come back to find this place as static as I left it.

A favorite of mine, in honor of the fourth:

The New Colossus

Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
"Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
—Emma Lazarus, 1883

Doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results. -Einstein

He was pretty smart, right? My high school principal used to say that all the time. This blog post, unfortunately, must be cryptic in any case I must say that I might be doing something insane.

Back to Business

Hey blog. I'm back from Israel and need to stop moping.

So here's my game plan for the rest of the summer:

1. Write my 2 book reports and 1 research paper for MDST 310
2. Waitress and Babysit
3. See Harry Potter 6 avec Emily
4. Teach VBS in K-Ville next week
5. (fingers crossed) Visit Aliya & David in Seattle

Hopefully 5 comes true, but I can't be too greedy. One big trip is plenty, but airfare is cheap and I miss them a lot.
