Bear with me,

I'm making a comeback.

First off-
I apologize for my lengthy absense.. :/. It's been what, a month? I cannot even believe I've let myself slack off for that long. So if some of you have quite reading, I definitely understand. But any of you who choose to bear with me and my at times sporadic writing, a million thanks. I genuinely appreciate that people actually take the time to read what I have to say, especially when they give me such awesome feedback along with it :). It's a wonderful thing, and I have truly missed it.

I suppose my alibi is my insane schedule, plus the fact that my laptop is still waiting to be fixed. I plan to get to that this week. But almost every morning I go in early to work on the yearbook, then we can't even access blogger in school, and after school has become a whirlwind of obligations. Preparing for college, doing my research, pesky homework, meetings galore, ect. Then weekends I try to squeeze some time in with my friends between volunteering and working. So that's basically my excuse, although I'm still ashamed that I've neglected writing here for so long. Having this slow internet certainly doesn't help when everything I do seems like a rush lately. But I think it's about time I start to slow down.
The college application process is driving me crazy. I need to put together a creative writing portfolio to submit to SUNY Purchase. I have no idea what all to write about, I need a bunch of poems and short stories. Wish me luck.
Hectic, yes. But this is me trying to pull everything together, and organize myself before I'm out on my own. Writing will definitely gain its priority again, I have missed you all way too much to start slacking off again. I just needed some time to get myself settled a bit :P.

Throughout this week I'll be catching up with you all, returning comments and seeing what I've been missing :). I hope you all had a fantastic holiday, and I can't wait to see what all you've been up to. I'll fill in the blanks alot better once I get back in the groove.

Miss and love you all,

OLIVE!!

You have NO idea how big my grin was when I saw you'd added a blog. I'd never stop reading you even if you updated like once a year :D

Oh I wish you luck with applying to colleges! I know how horrible that is!!

Good to hear from you again :)

:D! I do believe that I am getting back into the groove of blogging as well. Since school started and life began to actually happen, I've been dealing out one excuse after another. However, I do hope that is going to change soon :)

Oooh, college apps. Fun, eh? I can't wait until I have to do them.... I'm in the process of applying for a program called "Governor's Scholar" where you spend the summer at a KY school campus and "experience" college life a bit. Sounds awful but it looks amazing on college applications ;D

It's great hearing from you, dear!

xo,

slow internet is the worst, but then i think about how amazing it is and somehow I am less angry ha. That doesn't mean that it isn't annoying :p
You sound way busy with school and everything, remember to take a breather!

YAY, it's awesome to hear from you again! :D

I understand though, blogging quickly falls downwards on the priority list once all of the school and extracurricular related work begins to pile up, higher and higher... :P And eeek, good luck with your college applications and everything! I hope your laptop gets fixed soon as well D:

Welcome back to the blogosphere :)

Everyone has been busy, so it's really very understandable why you haven't had the time :P
Good luck with your applications and all! You're a great writer so I'm sure your portfolio will come out well :)
Glad to know you are doing well. Have a good week!

Senior year is turning out to be a piece of merde/mierda/s**t (whichever language you choose ;P), and college applications are a dragggg. I'm in the same boat, girl. Just take it as it comes, we're almost halfway. I'm sure your portfolio will be kickass :D Hit me up sometime on my e-mail if you'd like, NicoleLE06@gmail.com.

Seasons greetings :))!
