I haven’t written a text post in literally FOREVER. There are so many times where I think about it and almost do it, but something else gets in the way. Thank you to the followers who actually stayed with me even though I was sharing less. I hope that once I graduate I’ll be back on here feeling inspired more often.
So much has gone on in the past year and I wish I had documented more of it. I’ll put some of my more recent updates from this last semester up here though!
-I am now almost done with my third internship at Atlantic. It’s been such a great learning experience, trying to figure out what I want to spend my life doing. I hope that I’m able to stay within the WMG family, and I think I’ll be figuring that out very soon actually.
-I dislocated my knee cap about three weeks ago. It was actually on April Fools Day! It was actually the WEIRDEST thing. One moment I was standing up straight and the next I went to bend down and grab my backpack from the floor….I must have twisted my leg/knee in a totally wrong position while going for the backpack very quickly and next thing I know my knee POPS out of my socket!!! And then I fell (because what else do you do when your knee unexpectedly dislocates) and then it popped back in! I had NO IDEA what had just happened. I remember feeling extremely awkward in the moment and not being able to stand back up for at least 3 minutes. After two sets of x-rays and an MRI, I learned that I badly dislocated my knee cap and there was some definite bruising/stretching of ligaments as well.
So now I’ve been living at home/being driven by my mom to all my classes/rehearsals for my last month of college. It’s definitely not ideal. It’s upsetting that I can’t just do whatever I want and see my friends at school whenever anymore. I’ve been going to physical therapy 4 times a week now so that I can POSSIBLY be walking without my crutches at graduation! LOL. It’s been rough, but I’m getting through it. I’m on one crutch now instead of two & my PT wants me off the other by the end of this week. I’m not too anxious for that though. I walk incredibly unsteadily without them. GAH.
If you’d like an example of how my days go..this is my day today: Have to get car service into the city for my internship now that I can’t go on the train/walk through the city. So it takes an hour to get into the city which isn’t bad..stay there from 10:30-2pm. Then I go straight to physical therapy on LI and I’m there around 3pm until 4:30pm. Home for dinner and then 7:30-9pm I have to be at school for choir.
-With all of this going on I also have the stress of my a cappella group’s first major solo concert on campus! We used to stick mainly to off campus/community service performances…but we’ve really made a name for ourselves on campus in the last year and a half. I’m so proud of the girls and I’m so excited and honestly so nervous!!! We’ve got the awesome all male a cappella group (The Dutchmen) opening for us which is so great. We have about 4 more rehearsals and one song left to fully learn. It’s been so much work planning this concert-people really don’t realize what goes into these things plus preparing for them! Anywho, I can’t wait and I really hope we get a good turn out. Leaving this group is probably what makes me most sad to leave Hofstra.
That’s all for now kids! I miss tumblr a lot. I hope I have some time this summer to catch up on everything.
I’m not the girl your mother warns you about.
I won’t kiss your best friend or break your heart.
I won’t make you choose between what you love to do & me.
I’m not cold. I’m not reckless.
I’m the girl your father mentions when your mom’s not around.
I’m the girl that gets away.
I will love you more than anything.
I will kiss you when you cry.
I will stand by your side until you decide otherwise.
And you’re just like your father, so you will.
You’ll let me go & I won’t look back,
But you will.
I promise you, you will.
I’m that girl.
