pertaining to or occurring in late summer.


For thirteen years I had seen the same people everyday; out of a graduating class of thirty-six I was close friends with all my peers.

On June 27, 2014 I tossed my cap into the air and proclaimed my freedom. I am a 2014 graduate and a student enrolled in her first semester of college. I have already participated in my summer orientation (luckily, I was part of the first session and got dibs over the others) and my classes are completely scheduled!

Are you nervous? Heck yeah! Only a month ago I had to ask permission to go to the bathroom and now I'm expected to determine what I want to do with/for the rest of my life!

To deal with my stress I am, of course focusing on boxing. I will be fighting my first bout ever on August 9th, a few days after my graduation party. Consequently, I have been training like a fiend. Unfortunately, I believe that I have developed a Runner's Knee - I have a pulsing pain in my right knee that acts up randomly...probably just a foofaraw. 

A great thing has occurred to me which coincides with my writing. You have been able to follow the phases of my life: from the petty I want a boyfriend stage to I hate boys! to What is life? to Death is poetry; the list drones on and on. Right now I believe that I have matured enough to evolve my writing beyond the trivial stages and into something more.

The Guy that I write about consistently in my poetry has dwindled to a mere blimp in the past. Not to say that He is no longer a significant part of my life, but just an ebbing passion/crush that has went nowhere. While he does not know me well enough to be a friend or lover, he is still my Muse. 

Please be patient with me, I am slowly hacking away at the myriad messages that I have received over the past month that have built up while I was away. I'm just replying to all the generous "happy birthdays". 

Despite all the positives, I have been fluctuating "weight-wise" lately...I'm trying to drop ten pounds and in the process have gained five. Grrr, it's so frustrating. We had a Fourth of July fling tonight and I'm full...uncomfortably so! Where is a fast metabolism when I need it? I just need to back off eating. Seems easy, right?

There has been a conundrum where I work so I haven't been working lately. It is burning a big ass hole in my wallet - will all my expenses (thankfully I'm still living at home) frankly, I need work. I'm going to apply everywhere tomorrow; all the applications seem to be online. I clean summer homes on the weekend and a couple of other houses around town, but I prefer a stable job. 

I find it funny that while I was taking a break I received more attention than I have when I was addicted to this website - logging on multiple times a day to see if anyone commented, critiqued, or viewed my page!

If you found the time to read all of this or some of it...thank you! I tend to ramble on about the most odd things, but HEY that's just me! Truly, I appreciate all the love and encouragement from everyone on this website! You are a honest inspiration and for that I love you.

I love you all - thank you for all the support. :blowkiss:
