Yea, yea, I know. I haven’t posted in ages. I’m sure I can blame something, but I can’t be bothered to think something up. Since I last posted.. I went to Quakecon, which was fun, but not completely thrills and chills. I’m glad I just arrived the morning of the first day instead of the night before.. It would have sucked to have waited in the line that long. Anyway, I got some free stuff, played CS:Source for the first time, and saw the Mr.Sinus show, which was hilarious, as usual, and lots of booths/new games.
After Quakecon, I don’t know what I did for a few days, but this last weekend I loaded a bunch of people into my car and Katie’s car, and we took off to spend the weekend at my condo in Georgetown. It was great fun, and we made many trips into Austin, visiting Mel, who showed us some awesome restaurants to try out, and also introduced us to Mozarts coffee shop on the lake. I think everyone had a good time, and it might become an annual thing. You can see pictures of the whole shebang here (click on “Emma’s Condo Weekend 2005″).
So tomorrow I’m going down to Georgetown for school. Sigh. I should be all excited about moving into my new room, but I know it’s going to be a lot of work, and a lot of finding out half my things are missing somewhere. I know I’m going to miss my friends, and even my crazy crazy family. I’m going to miss my room, too. And I know I won’t have internet until the 29th of August, late at night. Assuming I can get it working right off the bat, of course. I dislike being without internet. I’m nervous about going down, setting up my room, and the internet withdrawl I know I will be going through. Maybe it’s all just me overreacting, but I am very, very stressed out about going back, and I really, really don’t want to go. I feel sick to my stomach, and am dreading leaving tomorrow. The only thing I’m really looking forwards to is getting my new bike. It’s a Trek with front suspension and nice knobbly tires – just the kind of bike I like. (I ride a lot in Britain, and grew up riding bikes, so I’m a little particular.) I was going to get it in purple and silver, but they have a stupid 60 day backorder, so I’ll be getting blue and silver instead. Not a big deal, but a little sad. Sigh. Sigh sigh sigh sigh sigh. Arslinskkdks.
Please let me stay here…. Or at least give me internet down there!!!!
