So I decided to go with all my ideas for the blog. I will post excerpts from the story I am writing for feedback, and I will transpose my moleskine ramblings. Here's the first one I picked out, written in the bathroom at a party:
I hate that nervousness translates into your outward appearance. The minutia of a person's stance of movement can instantly tell everyone around what is going on inside their head. It's unconscious and nearly impossible to control. It hardly seems fair! Being nervous is unpleasant enough without it being so obvious to others. What if other emotions were readable like that? You look at the way someone carries themselves and think, "Hmm... they look anticipatory..."

So I've started carrying around an old friend, my trusty mini moleskine notebook and some interesting things have been happening. These random thoughts and ideas that come to me throughout the day, I have been writing them down instead of immediately disregarding them. Some of them are worthwhile, some are not. Some just need to be on paper. Some need to never be anyplace except the inside of my head. But the catch22 is that I never know which is which until weeks later when I re-read it. My new idea is to pick my favorites and transpose them onto this blog. I'll mull this over and get back to you.

Hi :) I'm Stephanie. My random impulse for today was to ride my bike, or start a blog. After discovering a busted tire on poor Celine, I found myself here. I don't pretend to believe that anyone is really interested in anything i have to say, but hey...could be fun.
So not much has happened today, I have a list of things to get done within the next week: start getting an application in and support letters written for my mission trip to Spain, finally file my state taxes (LATE!!!), try to find a second job or volunteer opportunities at the hospital, and fix my poor bike. So I made some minimal progress in each of them, and decided to call it quits for the day.
What I am thinking: What are the chances I can convince myself to work out today? I already got dressed in gym clothes, but the down side is they are super comfy and make me want to lie around and watch scrubs all day...
What I am feeling: Super bummed that my best friend in the world has to spend his whole summer working from 6am to 9pm and our routine of hanging out daily and nightly and ever-so-rightly will now be derailed. Also, he has a new girlfriend which punches a hole right in our time together, but I just want him to be happy. *sigh*
Speculations: I believe my tight-knit group of last year friends is officially disbanded. I thought once everyone was done with school we would all come together like last summer but I don't think we will ever be as close as we were last year. Sad. But it seems like the theme for this summer will be change, progression, adaptation, and ultimately, growing up. It....SUCKS. I don't wanna grow up, I'm a Toys "R" Us kid.
