I am so tired right now. And it doesn't help that I have homework that I should do, but isn't pressing.

I really love Ultimate Frisbee. Except that it makes me really tired. Because I am out of shape, like crazy.

And I really hate World Lit. Have I mentioned that?

Goddammit, I have no time this semester. It's ridiculous.

School is going. Work should not be. I'm already looking forward to Christmas. A lot.

I have, like, one and a half good classes. The others are useless, painful requirements. Oh well.

God, we started rehearsing for the Cham. We're doing an awesome dance, but we have to rearrange it, because we keep not knowing who's going to be in it. So far, I'm in the center, basically just doing my own thing. Which could be cool if I pull it off, but really silly if I don't. We shall see.

I have had three days off this month, and it's beginning to wear me out. I was almost useless today. And lately, I've been training someone who's nearly my mom's age, which is awkward. She's nice, but it's really weird.

I'm really excited about dance starting.

I am not really excited about school starting.

I am really not excited about paying for textbooks. I cannot find them online. I am upset.

I am really really excited about Barack Obama. Joe Biden's speech last night was awesome.

Voting is fun.

I'm tired.

I'm beginning to feel like I wasted another summer. I mean, Canada was great, but the other three months have mostly been working and sitting at the cabin. I love the cabin, but I haven't done much of anything else. It's partially because of the rain, and partially because I'm so bad at getting motivated to do anything. That's especially true lately: Wednesday will be my first day off in August. I'm making money, finally, but I've felt too tired to do anything else (even Wii Fit!).

On another note: Joshua won So You Think You Can Dance! I was so excited. I think I wanted Twitch to win, but Joshua's awesome. The whole finale of the show was awesome, especially when Nigel (one of the judges) tap danced with a group of little kids. It made me really happy.

And the Olympics are fun.

I really do not appreciate work right now. I have been working lots of lovely overtime, since I'm the only merchandiser. We were supposed to hire a new girl yesterday, but she failed to show up, so everything took a ridiculous amount of time, because I was alone. I ended up calling my brother to help me for half of the day.

Things got worse at Wal-Mart (who'd have guessed?), because we had to put up some stupid display, and some idiot decided, when we were half done, that we needed more shelves. It took forever to get them up, and as we were filling them, another idiot got all pissy because they weren't precisely evenly spaced. So we had to unload, rearrange, and reload again. I was thoroughly angry by the time we left, because I was hungry and tired.

On another note, I saw Daredevil last night. Meh. Maybe it's just because it's Ben Affleck, but I couldn't appreciate the character, and therefore could not forgive the serious suspension of the laws of physics. Sorry. But Scott Terra, who plays the young Matt Murdoch, looks EXACTLY like my brother. It's really scary. I couldn't pay attention to the first part of the movie, because I couldn't get over it.

Seriously, I think there's a leak somewhere. The rain is bordering on absurd now. Apparently the river's higher than it's been since the flood in 1967. I almost stopped on my way home to help some of the people who were filling sandbags to put near their houses. I really should have...

So I am essentially the only employee other than my mom at work, now. There were five of us in June, and now it's down to the two of us. Awesome. I wonder when my next day off will be? On the plus side, I'm supposed to be getting a raise very soon (just in time for actual overtime!), and they're revising the old mileage program. At the moment, they give us 15 cents for every mile we drive. It doesn't even cover half of the gas I use for work, and my car gets pretty good mileage. It's ridiculous. So anyway, the next few weeks may suck, but at least I should be making good money.

I'm really getting nervous about school starting, especially because of work. I'm seriously considering putting off this damn communications class for at least another semester. I really shouldn't, but that is currently the source of my stress, and I think I'd be better off saving it for a less stressful semester. Except, I'm afraid that my classes will just continue to become more stressful in general. I might just be screwed. Maybe I'll do a semester where all I take is that class. That's a thought.

I was really productive yesterday, which made me feel quite a bit better. I cleaned a lot, and I fixed my slack line. I just wish this rain would stop so I could use it. And I want to play badminton!! Oh, well. At least there's Wii Fit.

Laurel bought Wii Fit on Saturday, and now we're actually motivated to do something other than sit and watch TV. It's awesome. Hula Hooping is a bitch, but it's so much fun. And so is Rhythm Boxing. Awesome.

And I can actually cook salmon! And it was good.

Other than that, I've been fairly unproductive since I got back from Canada. And I'm beginning to get a little nervous about next semester. With 16 credits, dance, and work, I might die.

I really want to go camping.

I really didn't want to come home at all. I wasn't particularly excited about this vacation, but it was awesome. And I really don't want to go back to work... I don't know, I'm sad today.

I did get to drink in Canada, which was fun. I think my relatives were more excited about it than I was, it was pretty funny. I can't drink red wine.

It's funny how you can't remember anything that happened on a vacation when you try to think about it. I promise it was great, though. I got a wicked sunburn on Sunday, and I still hurt. Jeeze. Who knew that sunscreen was expired?

I do remember that I saw The Dark Knight with my brother and cousin. Frickin' Sweet. That movie was intense, and full of awesome.

I'm tired, and I totally have ADD.

We had a pretty wicked thunderstorm last night. The thunder was super loud at around 2am - it scared the crap out of me.

You know what was cute? On Independence Day I went to the thing at Alaska Land, and I saw Mr. Kind sitting with his family. But later, I noticed that he was sitting with Kahoe and his family. I laughed.

I'm leaving tomorrow morning for Canada, and I'll be gone for two weeks. I'm excited - it'll be nice to get out of here, for the first time in a year (excluding my day trip to Healy). I hope it'll be fun - last time was a little boring, but we'll see. Anyway, don't try to call me, because I'm not bringing my phone. And I'm not sure I'll have much Internet at all, but I don't know.
