7 Quick Takes (Vol. 9)

I like lilacs. They don’t bloom for long but for the time they do, it’s beautiful. And it smells wonderful. I wish my camera was working so I could show you the lilacs my sister and I picked and put in a vase on our kitchen table. Some of them are wilted already, but some are still fresh.

I’m surprised by how much I like Twitter. I’ve only been using my account for about 10 days, but I’m seeing some benefits. There’s some great Catholic and pro-life people to follow on Twitter. There’s great quotes, news articles, humor. However, I’m not a big fan of how short tweets have to be. That would be my one complaint.

If you’d like to follow me I’m under @rachel_kateri. You can also see my recent tweets in the Twitter widget to the right.

Earlier this week I went shopping with a friend. It’s been on my to do list and it was fun. We stopped at all of a girl’s favorite shops: Ghiradelli’s Chocolate, Bath and Body Works, some clothing stores. I didn’t buy much but it was a good time and I got to catch up with an old friend.

I going to be in a choir. My old homeschooling group is having their graduation Mass this week. Myself and several others will make up the choir for the Mass. I haven’t sung in a choir since my chorale concerts in April and I felt pretty rusty at practice yesterday. But it should be fine as long as I practice.

I’m still looking for a Summer job. Yep…. I’m feeling less and less confident as time goes on, but we’ll see.

I wanted to write this Summer. See, I haven’t really written fiction since I started school. There just hasn’t been much time for it. So I though I’d pick up some of my old pieces again (I usually aim for novel-length). But I’m finding it kind of laborious. Maybe I’ll start something new? Maybe I just need to push through?

Spring/Summer Fever… I’m a planner. I need to know what’s coming up next. I also don’t like sitting around doing nothing for days and days. Don’t get me wrong, rest is nice. But at this point I’ve been home for 2 weeks and sitting around the house has turned from relaxing into tedious. I want to do stuff, but  it would be difficult to start any major projects since I don’t know what the rest of the summer will hold. I could decide to do this or that but I guess I’m afraid it might be interrupted were I to get a job. I like schedules. I like consistency. But I don’t like doing nothing. Maybe I’ll start something, and if it gets interrupted or I have to cut back…oh well then. But I need to do something.
