So I just got home from vacation in New Jersey, which was lovely. The beach was pretty and the ocean was warm and my younger siblings only spent one evening collecting and displaying dead jellyfish. :P It was overall relaxing and enjoyable and all sorts of other vacationy adjectives.
And now I'm home, and my stepbrother who is also headed to college this fall has pointed out that we leave in three weeks -- him in less than that, actually, and me in pretty much that precisely. I'm excited, yeah, but also a little bit terrified. And I have so much to do before I leave and so many people I want to see again, and then there are the people who I'll probably quite literally never
see again, as they're moving Far Far Away as they begin college, and it's all horribly depressing, not to mention oh, my God, MIT, what if I'm not smart enough? I'm just some girl who's kinda good at taking tests, I'm not brilliant or accomplished, and sure they said I was bright in high school but that doesn't exactly set me apart... In spite of appearances this isn't a beg for flattery, really, just personal livejournal therapy. Feel free to forget this entire paragraph now. :)
So I get home, I drag my suitcase upstairs, and of course, I immediately plug in my laptop and start catching up online. :P E-mail first, which I'd only had the chance to check once over the past week, and then once all three accounts were checked I moved on to my friends-list. (Have pretty much given up on cut-tags and even sporadic commenting; skimming will have to do. Yes, I have no life, but there's a limit even for me.) Next will be webcomics. And then I'll do things like do my laundry, put my books back on the shelves, read my physical mail and flip my calendar... who, me, horrible set of priorities? Never.
Also: amusingness from a conversation in which aforementioned stepbrother, who gets paid to watch movies, explains why he didn't like Catwoman much. ( I suppose this might be a spoiler. But I gather the plot isn't supposed to be the main attraction of the movie anyways. )
