super shuffle

ok, back to our regular programing-music! sorry about the exposition, hopefully its wasn't as bad as that clip we keep watching in my creative writing class, but it seemed necessary. anyways, i've wanted to write about this for a really long time, so here we go.
i believe the greatest thing about my Ipod (other than capacity) is shuffle. i realize that shuffle is nothing new, but that's the beauty of shuffle, its different every time. i started to really use shuffle when i didn't know what i wanted to listen to, but my Ipod sure seemed to know exactly what i wanted. its almost creepy that it knows so well, but every time it plays that one song after another favorite song after another favorite song, i'm sure i look something like a little kid in a candy store with thousands of dollars to spend on whatever they want. i dance, sing at the top of my lungs, and sometimes speed excessively and get pulled over (that's happened twice now, oops!) the best thing that shuffle can do other than read my mind is pull up songs i've completely forgotten about, or even never heard before that are simply fantastic. i would never have picked that artist or song on my own, yet my lovely shuffle did. i often feel slightly ashamed when an amazing song comes on and i had no idea it even existed inside my music library, yet i am still grateful every time. i wish my CD player or even our turntables could preform this function, but they are both sadly limited in this department, but that's why i love them in a different way. so if you're bored with your music, all you have to do is shuffle ;)

as you can tell, my blog has gone to disrepair. i started this over a year ago i think, and about a billion things have changed since then. i think at this time i worked two jobs, one at a daycare and one at the northside fye. i was also in school, i think i took about 15 hours. by Christmas i was so worn out that i fell asleep behind the wheel on NW expressway and almost got in a wreck. luckily i drifted to the left rather to the right into traffic and i just busted up a tire and a wheel, not my car or my life.
i got married during my blog laps too. its almost been a year since then, june 6th. which is also D Day, i find this ironic somehow. clayton joked that we would watch Saving Private Ryan on our honeymoon, but we didn't. i probably cried too much the first time we watched it so he doesn't want to go through that again.
i've also moved from a duplex i shared with my sister in Edmond, right across the street from campus, to a house in Norman with four male roommates, one includes my husband of course.
i have a different job again too. i work at Hastings in Norman but i still really miss FYE. i recently tired to go back to the south side, where i originally started FYE, but very sadly, it didn't work out.
i've also changed my major (yet again). during the beginning of this blog, i majored in business. my logic was: i want to own a venue, so i have to know about business theories, ect. of course, it wasn't for me, just like so many other majors, and finally i'm on the right track with liberal arts and a concentration in creative studies. i love all of my classes and i'm actually sad this semester is almost over. however, i think next semester might be even better. we'll see.
i think a few more changes will happen very shortly in my life. we're hoping to move into a house of our own this summer. i'm working on a novel that hopefully will be published sometime in the close or near future, with a small possibility of a tv show based upon it. i'm planning on graduating within the year (fingers crossed!) who knows what else. i think its really amazing how many things can happen in just a few months. it never seems like it, but your whole life can change in one day. so now that your bored with all the getting caught up, i'll post a much more exciting, non christmas greeting card post tomorrow. <3
