It's just astounding how I'm actually writing in oasis when I'm happy, as opposed to the normal trend of scribbling in here while my life lies in ruins. Well, a teenager's perspective of ruins, anyway.
Alas, I do have few words to share, though. Things are happening in my life, but I simply don't think they're as important as I used to. I mean, they're just...things. My happiness no longer hinges on what's going on around me; that pattern of thinking once made my life as stable as a game of Jumanji. Now I'm content knowing that both the outside and inside world are constantly changing, and I don't need to fight this phenomenon. It's just the way the world is. I acknowledge that part of this mindset is accepting that it itself will change, and if I'm struggling a week or two from now, I'm going to have to accept that, too.
I'm not completely egoless, however, so I'll give you cats and kittens a quick rundown of my sundowns.
-I've decided to create a weekly writers' workshop for local teens. Our first meeting will be tomorrow.
-I'm also planning to film my first "real" movie that I've written the script for in the next week or two. (Remember, I'm kinda into that whole screenwriting thing?) It's a 6-8 minute film about a mentally handicapped teenager who yearns to win a four square tournament.
-The marching band season has started...woo. It's strange being a big ol' senior. I feel bad for the kids who look up to me! =]
I hope that keeps the gizzard going for all the inquiring minds out there!
