I've been such a bad blogger lately! I've been so busy with moving, work, and other stuff that I haven't had too much free time to read any blogs, much less write any posts! This weekend should be pretty busy as well - I have a graduation party to go to tomorrow and then on Sunday it's my big move day. My boyfriend is also taking his test to get his pilot's license that morning, so keep your fingers crossed for him!
I've also been feeling kind of down about a whole bunch of bigger things. Like the oil spill in the Gulf. It's heartbreaking to watch the news. I feel so sorry for the people who live down there and are directly affected by it. It makes me sick to my stomach to think about. I've also been sad, and honestly a little nervous about all the violence in my city over the past few weeks. There have been several murders and the one that seems to be affecting the city the most is of a boy who was just 14 years old. I keep seeing his parents on the news and can only imagine the pain and sadness they are dealing with right now. And I just heard that a 10 year old girl was shot tonight. Things like this only get worse in the summer. I truly hope that the police and community leaders can get a grip on this before it gets worse. I am lucky to live in an area that is very far removed from the situation, but I admit that I felt a little nervous walking home tonight. You never know. These poor parents certainly did not send their children out expecting them not to come home. It's so senseless and so discouraging.
Sorry to end on a Debbie Downer note!! Just have a lot of stuff on my mind I guess. I am happy that this weekend looks like it will be good (well, not weather wise!) and I hope that you all have fantastic weekends!
