productive-ness update

Nobody would have guessed but I volunteered at my local nursing home most of this summer. But what am I doing when I'm not working and makin moneh? Running errands, shopping, cleaning and crafting. That's actually all I've been doing since my summer job ended. Sounds awful to transition from conversing with super seniors to wasting the paychecks on necessary and unnecessary things. BUT no because I also just got my check for my high school art award. Cha chingggg! Anyway, it's not a compensation kind of feeling to have to clean when I shop in the same day. I just clean because I like to see clean and neatly organized things. And since college is beginning way too soon, I feel the strange need to redecorate my house as well even though I'm not dorming. Therefore I went out to the art store yesterday and bought two large canvases and some hemp cord to satisfy my DIY cravings that have to do with being neat and decorative. The canvases are all painted already and were inspired by dis except mine look like tire tracks. And I used the hemp cord to make some bracelets liek dis. Now as of shopping, I am waiting for five packages to arrive before September comes. (This is not an ordinary event in my life.) My ASOS order came today and I still went to the new Marshalls here. But you see, the way I shop is very minimized if you know what I mean. A basket full of things I want usually ends up in two or three items. However on the other hand that cleans, I can buy a whole bunch of crap I think I need in order to make something sparkle and shine. Except today I bought those Magic Eraser things and that was all I needed. I cleaned the whole bathroom with that fabulous white sponge. Who cares? Nobody.

So my college orientation is next week... I don't know what to feel. All I care about now is for fall to come faster.
