And I went to the bank, too, and deposited my check for the summer - after taxes, slightly more than a thousand dollars. Sounds okay, until you think about the fact that I'm going to blow two to three hundred this weekend alone ($50 for each park in Orlando, plus hotel, gas, and food) and that I pay $300 each month in car payments. Oh well, I start my job in Gainesville soon. Looking forward to that!
And while we're on the topic of money, I just checked and T-Mobile is finally done taking cell phone payments out of my Dutch account. I am left with a grand total of E63.40, or about $75. Not too bad; about what I'd hoped. I had to gamble on the amount to leave over there, and it looks like I did a good job.
Am I the only one who did not know that the blond girl in Bend It Like Beckham is Keira Knightly? I love her, but I didn't recognize her with short blond hair. My sister's watching the movie, and I can hear the music all the way from my bedroom. That movie's got the best soundtrack.
Speaking of good songs, here are my 'camp songs' from the summer. There are always certain songs that remind me of camp (for instance, the fast version of "Heaven" will always and forever remind me of the 2002 drive home, with three other counselors AND their luggage jam-packed into my Beetle); these are the 2004 ones:
"Don't Leave Home" by Dido
"Seasons of Love" from Rent (popularly called "525,600 minutes")
"Total Eclipse of the Heart" by Bonnie Tyler
"Airwave" ('Breathing' remix) by Rank 1
Okay, I suppose I should start compressing digital photos to e-mail out to my campers. Whenever I see a cute shot and try to go for it, I get barraged with, "No, wait, let me get MY camera!" "Ooh, me too!" "Can you get mine for me?" "Can you take one with mine?" and on and on and on. So I finally started saying, "No, just let me take this one with my digital and then I'll mail it to all of you." That settles the swarm of camera-hunting girls, who by that point have ruined the shot anyway, whatever it was.
I like this layout more every time I look at it. Is it egocentrical to open up your own page a few times a day, just to admire it? :)
