Dear World,

There is a certain part in 500 Days Of Summer when Summer says, ” I just don’t feel comfortable being anyone’s girlfriend. I don’t actually feel comfortable being anyone’s anything.”

I believe that was the moment I fell in love with a character.  Not her of course, but her words.  I guess my entire (young) life I’ve felt this way, but haven’t known how to put it into words.  Granted, I’ve only just graduated high school, but I’ve pretty much known who I was since a young a age.  What she says is exactly how I feel.  At least up until this point in my life, I’ve been way too independent to be anyone’s anything.  I don’t like labels and I don’t like feeling as though I’m property. 

At another point in that conversation she says, “I, like being on my own. I think relationships are messy and people’s feelings get hurt. Who needs it? We’re young, we live in one of the most beautiful cities in the world; might as well have fun while we can and, save the serious stuff for later.”

Again, word for word, I couldn’t have said it better myself.  It always makes me so sad when I see a young couple that throw away their futures for eachother.  I’m not saying you can’t fall in love young.  I would never say that, as I’ve never experienced love for myself and could never believe I could know how two people felt about eachother.  What I am saying is that, when everything is said and done, you are the only person who knows you best.  You have to be with you for the your entire existence on this planet.  To build your life around someone else so young, to me, is a huge risk.  This is just my opinion, but I love how the character Summer says it so clearly.

Sincerely,

Shea

Dear World,

When Harry Met Sally, it made for a romantic comedy that I could watch over and over again.

I’m like a bird

Dear World,

My cat is currently sleeping on my bed and watching her reminds me that it really is a cat’s world.  You can think what you want, but they ALWAYS have the most comfortable spots, do nothing but sleep all day, and watch as we serve them day in and day out.  Now I really have the urge to go back in time and watch The Aristocats…

I leave for Florida in t minus 4 days, and I turn 18 in 6 days.  Oh dear, I’m about to become legal, you know what this means… I CAN FINALLY VOTE!  HUZZAH!  What?  Is there anything better to do?

Sometimes I have the complete  urge to delete my facebook.  D0n’t be silly, I would never ACTUALLY follow through with this crazy act, but sometimes I really do want to.  I have no interest in getting one million status updates on my newsfeed from the SAME person.  REALLY?  Facebook is so wonderous that you’d rather stay on it all day than enjoy a beautiful summer day?  OH VEY!  There are many people I will miss after I leave this town and head off to college world, but there are also a handful that I’d be ok with forgetten, but facebook won’t let me.  Double oy vey.

But alas, the beauty of social net working is that you get to creep ALL ZEE TIME.  I’d say I’m a profession creeper when I want to be.  No shame.

Sincerely,

Shea

History starts now

Dear World,

I’m blogging to you from my brand new, beautiful laptop!  It’s so light weight and perfect and beautiful and I am in love with this inanimate object.  No shame folks, no shame.  No, it is not a macbook. I’m a PC, what can I say?  It’s a samsung something or other, and it’s amazing!  Going into the store today I had my heart set on a sony vaio and then I saw this precious gem and I fell in instant love.  It’s only 4 pounds too! 

I’m going to watch Leap Year now, because it’s my heart and soul put into a movie.

Sincerely,

Shea

Dear World,

So, I’ve done it.  I’ve graduated high school, I’ve gone to college orientation, I’ve moved on with my life.  HUZZAH!  Do I feel like a graduate yet?  No.  Do I feel like a college student yet?  No.  Am I in love with Boston? Yes!  Do I love college and playing manhunt at obscene hours of the night?  Um, duh.

I suppose I can get used to this charmed life.

We did it 2010, we did it!

Sincerely,

Shea

Dear World,

I graduate tomorrow.

Then it’s on to the real world.  Or at least college world, which I suppose is more of a utopian world than the REAL world, but still.  I have orientation next week which means I’m headed to Boston.  I’m so in love with the city, I’m ready to live there.  Goodbye small town, goodbye high school, it’s been real.

Sincerely,

Shea

To the sea

Dear World,

Oh hey what’s new?  Oh me?  Nothing big, I’m ah, just DONE WITH HIGH SCHOOL FOREVER!  No big deal, no big deal.  So yes, no more high school, graduation in a week, orientation coming up, Florida soon, 18th birthday rapidly approaching and Jack Johnson concert in the near future.  Life is beautiful!

Oh, um, yeah, and I also got my hair cut… a lot shorter than I THOUGHT SHE WAS GOING TO CUT IT ahem, thank you crazy lady at super cuts.  But I’m adjusting and starting to actually really like it?

Sincerely,

Shea
