Coffee Overload Week

Contrary to popular belief, YES I am still alive! This surprises me as much as it does you. And yes, I am going to ramble tonight as it has been, as the title of this post so clearly states, “Coffee Overload Week”.

First, may I just say that OGT’s are straight from the fiery abyss? Five long days, beginning with early mornings sitting in a room full of strangers as silent as the plague and ending with late night test prep or homework is what awaits any home schooled high school student here in Ohio. Oh, and we mustn’t forget the constant rain… and cold… all week long.

For our second order of entirely unimportant business, I hate math, math tests, geometry teachers, and migraines. Yes, migraines fit quite well with that group, especially when the first three are multiplied and shoved into the same day. But I’m sure no one wants to hear the boring tale of my math-wriddled day, right? Moving on.

In addition to this already stuffed week, my Moosy-Goofy-Goober-Boy cut his leg *again*. Love ya Goofy, but we’ve really got to get past this never-ending season of constant injury between you and I, okay? Thanks for stopping before it was stitch-worthy, but let’s not cut it so close next time, please? *Thud*

Okay, I know I must be boring you, my poor innocent readers, as I myself am yawning. I apologize for these exhaustion rants of late. But I shall leave you with one last thought… Or, rather, link! Yes, my little yawning-yahoos! The first issue of “The Cardinal Chirp” has been… eh…. Printed? I’ll have to think over that one. Anyways, enjoy!

Randomness, Excitement, and Dead Language Rants

Well, it’s been another couple of long weeks. Big tests in multiple subjects, OGT prep, writing articles, working, hundreds of cookies, riding my horse, I could go on and on. Adhuc, ne cures laetus est dum fessum, nam in infirmitate, forctis sum. Translation: Still, care not to be worn as long as it is a joy, for in weakness, I am strong. *Yes, she speaks Latin now. Dead languages are fun to rant in!*

Anyways, I’ve got to keep this quick, but I was feeling bad about neglecting my blog *again* so here we go!

Last Monday I FINALLY got to ride my horse again *YAHOO!* and it was outside! A gorgeous, bright, crispy fall day, surrounded by multi-coloured trees, atop my magnificent, perfectly obedient steed. Picture soon to come!

Tomorrow, the first edition of The Cardinal Chirp for this school year comes out, including three of my own pieces. A link will be posted at some point, as the website is open to the public! Should be totally rockin’!

Today was a wonderfully rainy, dreary day, on which I went hiking with some friends in a downpour, got soaked, laughed, sang, and then played P.O.W. in a cold, abandoned house. (Yes, it was legal. It belongs to our friends who were present and let us in. They moved out a year ago.) So fun!

And now, I sit here, declining Latin nouns, writing this post, and getting ready to read my Bible, “Biblical Theology in the Life of the Church: A Guide for Ministry”, and “Radical” before eating caramel apples as I work on the second perspective piece of my second novel. *skips around room* Ahhhhh gotta love Sundays!

Valete, Amicae! (Goodbye, friends!)

And remember: ubi mel, ibi apes! (Where there is honey, there are bees!) haha *No, I haven’t had coffee lately, why do you ask?*
