It's been a while since I've updated last. When you last heard from me, Rae was coming into town. We had a spectacular time, did touristy things, watched all of Teen Wolf-- which is fabulous despite it's MTV origins-- visited Copenhagen and Helsingor, and basically ran around having a spectacular time.
About five days after Rae left, my mother and I embarked to the states. A friend of my mom's was getting married. After an extraordinarily long trip (Copenhagen to Amsterdam to Cincinnati) we stayed the night at my grandparent's. They loaned us a car and we drove down to Tennessee, stayed a few days in a hotel, slept over at a friend's house, then tried to go to the wedding. It was being held 40 minutes (according to the gps) from our hotel, but it took us three hours to make 75% of that, so we ended up going to just the reception.
The trip was generally good, but I think mom and I are almost to that point of driving one another mad again. Benefits of this trip included 5 dresses (in our search for something to wear to the wedding) for under $100 (my mother picked up the bill), a cute lunch box, Sims 3 for pc, a used nintendo DS and Sims 2 for it bought with money from trading in some cds, a used copy of the film A Single Man, an Avengers colouring/activity book that has temporary tattoos in it, an Avengers travel cup and mug, and "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes" which I picked up at Target for 5 dollars, has 39 black and white episodes, as will as 4 films and a total of over 24 hours of run time.
Despite all of this stuff (which I am using and enjoying, I assure you), I've been pretty down lately. We got back from the wedding trip three days ago and I just feel... kind of empty. Like I know I could spend all of my time writing, biking, learning chemistry out of the textbooks I got from the library, or studying something else, but I find all I have the energy for is a bit of roleplay and some video games. I'm not sleeping well, I'm having more headaches, and I still have no one to hang out with. It sucks. I can't wait for mid-September, where I'll be in London and at least have a better chance of meeting people and doing things. Even just having classes to focus on would be nice.
