xlovebecomesher: (Dirty Little Secret)
Fall is starting early it seems here in Maryland. I find that I have to take a jacket with me to have in the car just in case I need it [and I've needed it]. I actually like it though - beats the humidity that we had the previous week!

I think the biggest challenge for me this blog-a-thon is not writing an entry every day but rather leaving this journal open for a month and knowing that anyone can stumble across this and read. I've had my journal friend's only since I started writing here 4 years ago so this is brand new to me being open like this. Maybe this will be good for me :)

I went to go visit my aunt in the hospital tonight - she had knee replacement surgery which went well but she's there for a few days before rehab. Her and I started watching the movie Blood Diamond which I've always wanted to see. I only saw about 15 minutes of this movie before she fell asleep and I got caught up in conversation with my cousin but I can't get it off my mind. The first 10 minutes you see the army invade and kill people and chop off limbs of people. I knew what a conflict diamond was theoretically and that De Beers diamonds are conflict free but to see it graphically and know that there are people who've gone through and/or still suffer today pains me. I was talking to Lina (who is from Sierra Leone) and she says it really hit home for her about her country when she was there and visited amputation camps and she saw little children missing limbs...and for what? It sickens me to think about it :/

Slightly less depressing, I got to see Lina tonight which always makes me happy. We hit up McDonalds which I haven't had in about a year as I hate fast food but she wanted to go so I was fine with it. This guy gave us coupons inside so we got a good deal (buy an angus burger and get fries and a drink for free - sweet) and we took our food and drove to Kennedy to sit on the bleachers and eat. I always look at that building and automatically so many memories assault me from sitting on the steps at lunch, to drama club, all the guys my friends and I have ever liked back in the day, classes, volleyball, friends, etc. Good times. We sat on the bleachers and just talked and laughed for about an hour (until we heard a voice over the loudspeaker going get out of the parking lot...go home...which was weird because no car was there and no one was there hmm). Such a nice night to sit outside with your best friend :)

Sigh why is my internet so loopy tonight - takes forever to load a page and AIM keeps kicking me off...maybe it's a sign I should go do some homework and shower to get ready for tomorrow!
