So, yes, Glee is back and the first episode was wonderful. I am not ashamed to say that any time Kurt and Blaine came on the screen I lost all dignity. There was squealing, general flailing, and at one point I was literally running laps around the coffee table. My grandparents were in the room for half of the episode and I am sure they are now regretting letting the crazy grandchild live with them. I did warn them several times that it was probably for the best that I watch Glee alone, but they did not heed my warnings.
I watched the first two episodes of How I Met Your Mother during my break today, and as jazzed as I get about Glee, How I Met Your Mother still holds the top spot on my list of favorite television shows. It's just good. Why don't you watch it? You really should.
Fall is the best season for many reasons, and one of those is definitely the television. If you have the same love of sitcoms and crime dramas as I do, then you will agree.
This past weekend, my grandparents and I went to visit my family in Albany. It was a nice visit in which I played volleyball with my siblings, sat on the front porch during a storm, visited KaCee and Jacob, and cuddled with Schnookums. Schnookums is the best dog in the world, okay?
This weekend is Albany's Homecoming, but I will not be able to go because of work. I am sad I won't be able to see everyone, but next weekend will make up for it. I am driving to Austin to stay with Melany for the weekend, and we are going to Quiet Company's release party/concert and the Austin Teen Book Festival where I will hopefully get to meet Maureen Johnson and Jackson Pearce! I was originally just going for the festival, but then I found out about the release party and Melany and I bought our tickets. I'm very excited for this because 1) I love Austin, 2) A FESTIVAL OF BOOKS, 3) Quiet Company is awesome, and 4) Melany is my best friend and it has been too long since we've seen each other, especially considering how codependent** we are. It will be a seven-hour drive, but it will be WORTH IT.
Anyway, school is okay. Spanish is still too early and math is still math, but what can you do? When I get down about having to get up at six every morning or with the fact that math homework takes me so long to do, I focus on two things: 1) Natalie and Lizzie have it much worse, and 2) At the end of this semester I will get to go to New York.
I still can't believe I'm going to New York, and do not think that I will really believe it until I'm actually there. It's so exciting though. I'll be buying my plane ticket soon, and then just working on saving up as much spending money as I can until it's time to go. January 7th, come swiftly.
* You are Shelby. And KaCee, though KaCee still hates me sometimes.
** We have honestly talked to or texted each other every day since we left Albany. It's actually incredibly sad.
