Fifteen Going On Sixteen

Hey, y’all! I hope everyone stayed safe and dry this Christmas. Unfortunately, that seemed practically impossible for a lot of people in a lot of places, and especially where we lived. Except the safe part, I assume. Maybe. Hopefully.

BUT…

Christmas is now over. It’s vaguely saddening. But at least we have New Year’s Day right around the corner. I FINALLY get to write 2016 and not be losing my mind (I’ve done that accidentally for at least a year now, if not two. I have no clue why. It’s probably because it’s our graduation year  and all we ever hear is “Class of 2016.” Especially these days.)!!!

To be honest, I’m not sure if I’m actually looking forward to the new year at all? 2015 has been kinda a weird half-disaster, but it’s also been relatively safe. Amen, except the beginning of my 2015 is a nutso rushed blur. Anyway, I digress. Yeah, we both experienced some losses and some rough stuff, but we survived this far and I think we’ll survive 2016, too, even though 2016 will be both voluntarily and involuntarily about change, and I’m not sure who is quite ready for that. Ready is a mostly relative term.In your opinion. I am entirely mentally unprepared, but that’s a new bag to unpack. Either way, though, it will work itself out and fate will have a hand in everything (whether we get to make our own (I’d like to point out this defeats the purpose of the term fate) or not, that’s for a different day).

Somehow this became about 2016. I am now uncomfortable. I thought we were gonna talk about excessive peopleing and too much junk food, but… This was…nice. A bit early, but… maybe a good start to 2016, since next time we post (barring something unplanned) will be the new year. This feels like a very closure-full way to say goodbye to the year full of so much. (So. Much.)

 

To everyone and everything that happened in the past year (or seventeen), I want to thank you for making me and us who we are because we are pretty great (if I do say so myself) and what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger (or wish you were dead, and increasingly doubtful of your continued existence). May the force be with you and may you keep your influence.

Anyway, keep your head on straight and your toes in the sand. 🙂 😀 ❤ 😉 😛 :O :/ 🙂

Try not to die because one day you’ll be glad you’re alive, and drive safely.

Winter Break

AJA was the least bit delusional in our last post. Winter break fixed nothing except the fact that we don’t see our friends and learn every day. We still can’t coordinate schedules enough to post together. *good natured eye roll* today I’ve been with family and up to my general ACGness (with a pumpkin and my immediate family, actually). Today she has been preparing for festivities (with wrapping paper and immediate family). For now, that is it.

Check in Monday in case we decide to wish you a Merry Christmas or something and be sure to put the chocolate in the blender. 🙂 😀 😉 ;P 😛

(Imagine a “Drive safely.” here.)

BUSY!

This weekend has been super busy for both ACG and me! I took my final ACT of EVER and she had senior pictures and family stuff! Pardon our absence. Hopefully winter break will lend itself to more time for posting. Take care and drive safely!

 

 

 

Ten…Nine…Eight….Seve–

Hey, y’all! I tried to remove ACG’s excitement by accident. I’m sorry. :/ Ahem. But we all SHOULD be excited because tonight we’re here to discuss something very exciting, which is… Well, you know…

It could be much more exciting, actually. We have basically ten more school days until Christmas break (cue cheering), but we have two more weeks of mayhem and responsibility before we get a break. In other words: I’m only excited because there’s an end goal to reach and it comes with multiple days of sleep availability. (Save me. I’m dying from having to put forth so much effort.)

We have big tests coming up, and not enough time to get our lives figured out in. Oh…no… please stop. I really wanted to breathe for the rest of the night at least. On the bright side, we have a new recipe I plan to drag her into trying out this week, and we will report on the status of that next week if it happens. If one or both of us aren’t safely tied up in padded rooms, that is. Even I think that’s a good idea at this point.

Sunshiney optimism is amazing. Just saying I’m pretty close right now and I can’t imagine any other senior is that far behind me. We will let everyone know how this next week goes, and we will be sure to take everything one day at a time.

 

Keep your hair in the air and your necks out of doorways. 🙂 😀 😉 😛 ❤

Sending my last bit of sanity into the internet, drive safely. ❤
