Wanted: Adventure

Listening to: "Hot Air Balloon" by Owl City

I need an adventure.

Lately, life has become a little too boring and routine for my tastes, and I guess I'm getting a little restless. Sigh. Really though, it's been the exact same thing nearly every day:
  1. Wake up
  2. Go to class
  3. Head to the library for homework
  4. Hang out with my boyfriend/friends (which usually involves sitting around, doing nothing)
  5. Go to bed
And I mean, I'm cool with all those things (minus the class and homework, and sometimes the waking up part), but with no spontaneity to mix things up, it gets a little old. The past few days, I've been missing, of all times, sophomore year. Parts of it were as close to hell as I've come, but it definitely wasn't lacking in adventure. I miss that. Unfortunately, I have no idea what to do about it. Life just keeps getting busier and busier, with more responsibilities that I can't slack on, and once I fulfill all of them, my day is suddenly over. I don't think I like this whole growing up thing.

Speaking of growing up, I need a job. Desperately.* I've applied to sooo many places, and so far, nothing has worked out at all. Ugh. I need something within the next 2 weeks, or it's going to be
a long, long summer for me. Help!

Anyway, while April hasn't been quite as wonderful as usual, I've still managed to squeeze in a couple of fun things...

Yellowcard/All Time Low Concert
Since Mike and I have managed to date for 5 months so far, Yellowcard played a concert for us. Or maybe their show with All Time Low in Atlanta just happened to fall on our 5 month "monthiversary" (not that I'm counting or anything). You know, same thing, right? Either way, it was fun. Yellowcard is wonderful, and they ended up playing a good number of my favorite songs by them, which made my night. Also, I discovered another band that I really liked (Hey Monday). All Time Low was, uh, interesting. They had a contest of sorts to see who could get the most bras on their mic stand, but I'll leave it at that. (I don't think I've ever seen that many flying bras in my life...not that I usually see them, ever, but that's beside the point.)

Thunder Over Louisville
Thunder is typically one of my favorite annual events, and it was still fun this year, but I have to say, the weather was not ideal. For one thing, the temps didn't get higher than the 50s, and with the wind, it was slightly chilly...never mind that the rest of the weekend was generally sunny and warm. It was also a little rainy. The river was apparently 11 feet higher than normal, causing a decent amount of flooding:
That's usually a sidewalk. Heh. Oh well. We still managed to have a good time, in spite of everything. (As a side note...oh, the things that can happen in 2 years!!)
I miss hiking all the time. Oh well, I guess I'll take what I can get! It was definitely a beautiful day for it. Kristi and I got to lay by a waterfall and talk while the guys ran off in the woods and nearly killed themselves. Discovering their manhood or something, I don't know. Either way, it was a fun day. I need more days like that.
Well, that's my life at the moment! Until next time...

*I know, I know--one more thing to add the routine-ness of life, but in this case, I don't have much of a choice!
