Here Are Some Random Thoughts

You know how you read something, and you totally agree with what the author is saying? Or it's the other way around and you think they're crazy? I think that is the beauty of blogging. I love being able to write whatever I want, whether people actually read it or not (the signs point to not), and knowing that some of my readers are nodding their heads in agreement and the others want to check me into the loony bin. That is OK with me.
I read blogs more than I write on mine, a true but sad fact. But here is another true fact: I love writing on my blog. Obviously, hardly anyone reads it. I have heard people saying that they have a life, why would they need a blog? But to me, blogging is different. I like having a place (outside my journal) to record my completely random thoughts, things I like, etc. I know that no one reads it, but that is kind of the point. I am not writing this to be read and get a million comments (although that would be nice and I would love that, too); I am writing it for me. I like it. And that is all.
That being said (as I step down from my little soap box), I cannot believe summer is pretty much over! Time is always passing more quickly than I think it should. I mean, I have been married for two months now and that is just plain shocking to me! Summer is over and it is back to school... *sigh*.
I cannot honestly tell you whether I am excited for or seriously dreading school. Probably somewhere right in between. I am having a very big problem deciding on a major. A big, big problem. I am not very good with decisions. At all. And the fact that there are so many things I like and could see myself doing... How am I supposed to decide what I want with all those choices? But alas, I have approximately four (or less) months to decide. That is a daunting thought. Wish me luck.
I am trying out some computer classes this semester. If I like that general area (and am good at it), I might try something like that. I am particularly excited for my digital media class. I think that could be fun. We'll see how it goes.
One thing I like about school is that I see it as another chance at a new beginning. I know we have New Year's Eve for that, but starting a new school year has always seemed like a better place for goals and resolutions. So I am going to make a few.
* I want to keep up my good grades, but not be a hermit. Is this possible? I do not know, but I want to try. I want time to spend with Brad, and my family, and my friends.
* I don't want to give up my books! I love reading. I can't stand not being able to pick up a good book, curl up, and read it. School takes up a lot of my time, but I definitely need my reading time. So I am going to make a goal to read at least two books a month during school. Hopefully I can read more than that!
* I want to be able to blog more. I am not going to plan it, I'm just going to blog when I feel like something needs to be said.
Alright, I think I have been random enough for one night. If anyone is reading this, leave me a comment!
Randomly yours,

I read...but I myself have become somewhat of a hit and miss blogger. I think with longer absenses in blogging come longer absenses in commenting!

You know I loved Harry Potter too!
