Okay, I needed to update, so here is one. My life right now in a music video. Well, not really, but kind of.
Don’t know if anyone has been catching any of the Euro’s, but I sure have. I think I’ve seen every team play at least once. Anyway, my pick to win the tournament is the Netherlands! They beat France and Italy easily, and then beat Romania 2-0 with their second string team in. I mean, where did this come from? And for those of you who don’t think this is a big deal, Italy was ranked #2, France like #4 or #5 or something, and Romania was ranked #12. The Dutch basically cut through these teams like a knife through butter. Anyway, another team I really liked was Spain. Fernando Torres and David Villa are unstoppable when they play up top together.
It is going to come down to the Netherland V Spain at some point, and that game will decide the tourney winners, as far as I’m concerned.
One thing that has become apparent to me over the past couple of years is how much the world shrinks as you grow older. I mean, think about it. When you were a kid, like 6 or 7, you probably played inside with G.I. Joes and video games (or Barbie Dolls and stuff, I don’t really know what girls do when they are little, I just have 3 brothers, no sisters). So your home and bedroom were your domain, you don’t really get out much. Then when you get in highschool you get a car and start driving places and the world becomes a little bit smaller. Then you go to college and start to meet people from literally all over the United States, and also some foreign exchange students, and the world gets even smaller. And then you and your friends have opportunities to go abroad, and before you know it, you have contacts and friends living on almost every major continent in the World, except of course, Antarctica, but who knows?
Well, of course one of the things you consider when you have friends abroad is how you will keep in touch. One of the coolest and most effective ways of doing this is skype! Skype is kind of like AIM, except Skype is specifically designed to provide video chat services. You can just call your friend, and chat it up right there, looking each other in the face. So why did it take me so long to register with skype?? I’ve had a lot of my good friends abroad this past semester, and I have hardly communicated with them. I think I may have emailed one or two of them, but thats abaout it! Some friend I am… But that really is just the way I am, I want them to have their own little “abroad experience”, and I’ll have the rest of my life to hang out and be part of their lives when they get back. BUT still, skype is a glorious invention, and very easy to use. And I should have been communicating with then through it every once in a while.
I’ve been able to communicate with my friends Chett and Kristen several times through skype in the last two weeks. Chett is in Chile and Kristen is in Bolivia, and supposedly they are having the time of their lives. Anyway, one person I was unable to speak to even once while they were abroad was my friend Meagan, who was in Granada, Spain for the last couple of months. I mean, I hadn’t heard her voice since like December or something ridiculous, which made all the more glorious when she called me the other night! But here are some pictures of my friends abroad! In order from top to bottom: Kristen, Meagan, and Chett.
So yea, skype me, its cool and its free.
I’ve had a lot of time on my hands recently.
To all you college students out there, here’s some advice. Take from it what you will. Don’t wait until after graduation to decide what you want to do with your life, like me. It is a big deal, which is why it takes some time to figure out, and it is for that reason that you should at least have some sort of idea what you want to do before graduation. My recent days have consisted of scrambling around the web looking for employment opportunities and making random phone calls to old friends trying to find possible leads. I can tell you it is both a dull and stressful experience, with your parents breathing down your neck to get you out and all. Trust me, it straight up SUCKS.
Anyway, I can hardly wait to take the next step. You know, getting a good job, buying my own house/apartment, and getting a dog (which has been a popular thing to do these days). Haha. Well, I guess the rest of my life begins with finding the right job, so until then…
