Road trip...of sorts [Saturday, Dec. 30, 2006, 8:26 pm]
Well, hello again :-)
And yes, I did get Pirates 2 on dvd as well :-D It was funny because my dad got a couple movies for the family and one of them was Pirates 2. I was pretending to be all bummed out because I would be at college most of the time and would thus be forced to buy one of my own in order to properly enjoy the Pirates saga... but a few presents later I received a copy of my own from the parents, and it was the 2-disc special edition at that :-)
That night we watched "Superman Returns" again. That Superman guy...wow. We then watched most of Pirates 2 and I almost fell asleep due to tiredness, but I waited until the end of the 3-way swordfight before going to bed.
Bright and early the next day (well, around 9:30), my mom, two younger sisters, and I departed for a vacation of sorts to visit my mom's side of the family (my dad's side has been over here a lot lately). It was an almost 10-hour drive to Pennsylvania, and unlike when my dad drives, my mom wanted those of us with licenses to take turns at the wheel.
We easily spent 30 hours in the van during the 5-day trip, but it was worth it to get to visit so many cool relatives again - some of whom I hadn't seen in over 10 years. I got to understand my mom's family line a little bit better - there were a bunch of people that I knew I was somehow related to, but now it's nice to know exactly how I'm related to them.
So it was a great trip, and it was nice to do something that I'll be able to look back on someday.
Everyone changes so much. And it seems like a lot has gone on in terms of money, tuition, and career thoughts in the last few weeks as well. While I'm still somewhat confused and worried about the little things, and how everything will work out in the end, I need to realize that everyone makes it through somehow. Not everyone knows exactly how they got the jobs they have now, but God will take care of those who trust him. I don't need to know exactly what I'm going to do when I graduate. I just need to get a good education, good experience, and then go for what I think I would be good at. And maybe I should stop setting my expectations at ground level while I'm at it.
Apparently I have a new roommate already, and I don't see her on facebook. Maybe I should call her...
