Two Takes and an Internship Submission

Uggghhhhhh…………

I literally want to slump my head down over my keyboard and cry a little. -sigh- I unfortuantely made the mistake of trying to reload this page after typing all I had typed and now it’s all gone. I have to retype it. Blah.

RETAKE:

I am exhausted. I wish I was in bed. However, I promised a second entry for today and I’m here to fulfill that promise. It never rained again after the first storm. I think that’s a shame. I wish it was raining at least now. I like to fall asleep to the sound of the rain on the roof. It’s relaxing. Instead, the nocturnal tree frogs are croaking their ballad, so that will have to do for now. I’m not complaining.

Currently, I’m reading a book titled “24 girls in 7 days” by Alex Bradley. I’m too tired to look up whether the author is male or female so I’ll do that later and leave it to your imagination or curiosity for now. Here’s the description on the back cover:

“So when his friends take it upon themselves to get him a date to the prom by placing an intensely humiliating ad in the school paper, they think they are doing him a favor. Jack doesn’t agree. But then the most amazing thing happens: Responses to the ad are overwhelming. So overwhelming, in fact, that Jack must narrow the list down. A lot. Not an easy task. Turns out, the girls at City High are quite the competitive bunch. From drive-by flashings to breaking and entering to cellphone stalkers, these potential prom dates will stop at nothing to snag the suddenly popular Jack. How will he ever choose just one?”

To be honest, I picked this book up (originally from a FREE BOOKS box outside of a house I was passing one afternoon on my way home from work, along with a few others) because of the description on the back. It’s written in 1st person point-of-view, which I don’t usually read (I can’t get into 1st person POVS. I relate the “I” in the book to me instead of the character and then have trouble getting into the story because the “I” in the book is doing, saying, and encountering things that I never would. Does that make sense? Anyway….), and the writing style is, for lack of better words, dry and sardonic (again, not a typical style I would read), but I found that despite the style of writing and the POV, it’s interesting enough that I want to keep reading and see what happens at the end. So, kudos to the author! I half contemplated putting it down after the first chapter, at first, but then decided to give it a second chance and read a few more chapters. I’m now halfway. I plan to finish it, if not tomorrow, then before the weekend is done. An easy task. It only has 31 chapters and 265 pages.

This Just In!: My younger brother has finally returned home and delivered to me that green tea lemonade I asked for hours ago. Since it’s too late for tea now (although, I did steal a few sips), I’ll save it for the morning…er…later in the morning. Now that he’s home, we were just discussing a test that he has on determining who he dates. An interesting concept. Mine is a bit different from his, but there are similarities.

Of my two brothers, I think I relate the most well to my youngest brother, but I think that’s because he actually spends time with me and talks with me (actual discussions), whereas my other brother (the middle child), I think, finds me annoying and he really only chats or holds conversations with me when he’s feeling chipper. Other than that, he spends a majority of his time with his girlfriend. That’s another subject.

Anyway, back to the rest of the “This Just In!” news. After our discussion of his dating test, I told Jae (that’s my youngest brother) that I recently found an application for Disney Interactive, to take part in their internship for Concept Artists. I told him I was considering it for next summer, but he talked me into applying for this summer. The program would start next month sometime and end in September, or December, depending on which program length I decide to partake in. I’m not too sure about flying all the way to California for the program and living there away from my family (while I did the Disney College Program twice in Orlando, FL before, Glendale, CA is much, much farther away). Anyway, I applied. Jae is always supporting me and telling me to try new things. I do the same for him, supporting him in his endeavors and sharing my advice and know-how when he requires and asks for it. We’re a good support team, I think. I look up to him, even though he’s five years younger than me. I wonder if he realizes just how much I admire his confidence, passion, strength, and knowledge.

Anyway, now Jae is playing away on our new Wii U (Super Smash Bros. Wii U) and it’s almost 2 AM. I’m so tired. Please bear with me. Also, I typed this entire thing (twice, by the way) without my glasses on. I feel a slight headache starting. Ah, good night all! Look for my words again soon.
