I have so many ups and downs that either one is absolutely normal these days.
I'm currently going through an 'up.' I consider it one if just sitting around my house is a good day, because there are times that I can't stand this. Today I woke up, played video games, had dinner with my family, and other than that, did absolutely nothing. Fireworks keep going off somewhere in my neighborhood and they're driving me crazy. I guess that's my only complaint.
I know I haven't been posting much lately. Depending on how you want to categorize this, I don't think I'm leaning toward total disappearance. My reasoning this time around is that I've been out with friends an awful lot, and I've been having the time of my life. The summer after I graduated was the one that I've always considered the best, but this one is already competing for the title. I feel great, I'm spending time with fun people, and I've already experienced some absolutely amazing things.
There are some terrible things that have gone on, of course. My boyfriend's best friend just lost a sister to skin cancer, and I feel so sorry for him. On top of that, four people I know are currently in prison: two for illegal fireworks (lay off, California, everyone does it), my (step) brother for drugs, and someone I knew in high school for child pornography - I never saw that coming, and I have a disgusted feeling in my stomach every time I think about him. Goes to show that you don't really know anyone's dirty secrets.
Hope you're all doing well.
