Hurricane days

"We all have choices. We all have voices." -Avril Lavigne

I am: in an organizational mood.

Today we finished putting up all the shutters for the house. I got yelled at briefly, several times, for random things. *shrugs* Everyone's stressed. We've been having "squalls", which are basically large gusts of wind and rain for brief periods of time caused by the outer rings of the hurricane. I know everyone is saying the hurricane better hit after all the work they've done, but I really hope it doesn't. Maybe as it slows down, it'll turn and go somewhere else. *crosses fingers*

I'm in the middle of organizing my room. For those of you who have never been in my room (which is most of you), I have these old-school bunk beds (the wood kind..I never see those anymore) that I've had since I was 2. I sleep on the bottom, so the wood connecting the bottom to the top is a great space to be artistic. I've made collages of pictures on both headboards (the one at my head and the one at my feet), and I've also taped a rather long Sex and the City homage to the nearest wall. I just keep adding to it. I went through some magazines and pulled out pictures I liked. I took down the old stuff on one side and threw most of it away. I put up a small picture of John Mayer, one of Oliver...something...(the guy from What a Girl Wants? He's cute!), one of Ashlee Simpson, one of Avril Lavigne, and then I have two headshots of Stacey Farber (Ellie) and Miriam MacDonald (Emma) from Degrassi: the Next Generation. I guess they did some kind of makeup/modeling thing for Teen People, so yay! I've been cutting out letters to spell their names underneath the pictures. It's awesome. I'm making an Avenue Q collage to put up...I'm just not sure where I'm going to do it. I wish I hadn't been so stupid and lost my poster of Kate Monster...*sigh*. Oh well. Christmas, maybe?

I have to do some actual cleaning in my room. It's a disaster zone: papers everywhere, covering every surface, books all over the place. I really need a space where I can just hang out. Lately I've realized that I don't consider either of my parent's homes my home. It's kind of like a spiritual homelessness. Hopefully this will change all of that.

It's so nice to be able to relax and do whatever I want. The hurricane keeps me from going all over the place in my car, and from going to school, forcing me to be in one place for more than a few hours and to chill.

The hurricane has kinda been a blessing.. I've gotten so much done.. But i'm just hoping that it doesn't hurt us.. I'm really praying that it doesn't hit us.. oh well, stay safe!!
