My orange shoelaces get lots of strange looks.

Arrived home from school two days ago and too much has happened since.

I just want to sit around, drink some coffee and read a book or something easy like that. But that would be rather uncharacteristic of me, so of course I spend my first day back going on a run, going out for pho with best friend Kristy, going downtown (pictures to come), going swimming, going out to dinner, and then ending the day cleaning my room and getting rid of unnecessary belongings.
My head doesn't understand why I'm not trying to learn something, or solve some obscure architectural dilemma, my body hasn't gotten used to the 3 hour time change yet, and the rest of me wants to have all my new found collegiate friends here with me.
I'm starting my unreasonably early a.m. lifeguard shift as well as my assistant coaching gig this week, so I'll be able to figure out a schedule. That will put me in the right mindset for productivity. Right now my family is mourning the loss of our two cats - one went missing a month ago and the other one got hit by a car today. First time our family hasn't had a cat in over twenty years. My friends want me to go bowling tonight, but I just want to sit around and bake strawberry upside down cakes.
I managed to get sun burnt this morning, and now my face hurts. If you actually read this disorganized jumble of thoughts I applaud you and you deserve a baked good.

I'll take an orange scone from Panera, thanks.

All joking (only kind of, I love scones) aside, I totally understand the GO GO GO mindset that comes with crazy course loads. That, and I'm working 60 hours a week on top of 12 hours of summer school. You just get me.

Enjoy your cake, bud.

We should have a blogger family baked goods exchange.... or maybe not. I don't really know how well baked goods travel.

Cats :(

Cleaning to get rid of unnecessary crap is always fun to me for some reason. But yeah, I definitely get needing to have structure in your summer so you don't just feel like you're lazing about all day being unproductive.

I'm sorry about your poor cats. All I know is, if my dog ran away or got hit by a car I would probably be too sad for social interaction.

Oh my gosh that is crazy!

You should rest! Hahah especially since it seems like all of your school work was pretty difficult. And if you miss your college friends there is skype or something! You can still see them :) 1-3 hours of time zone difference can't be all that bad.

Really really really sorry to hear about your cats :( Hang in there Dillon, you can do it! :)

I adore the way you write, and tell your story.
The photo is brilliant by the way, I like it a lot.
I am really sorry about your cats.
Keep your head up. :)

I'm so sorry about your cats. :(
They're such amazing animals.

Upsidedown cakes are always a good idea.
