Welcome to the fallout
Welcome to resistance
The tension is here
The tension is here
Between who you are and who you could be
Between how it is and how it should be, yeah

I dare you to move...

Dare You To Move :: Switchfoot

It's time to depart my main home and return to my secondary home and my extended urban family. And while it's easier to do with each year, it still makes my heart sink every time I have to hug my parents, sister, and mutt dogs goodbye and know that it is the last lasting closeness we have for the next four months or until whenever I return.

There is, however, no escaping it. As much as I enjoy (and dislike) Germany, I know that Idaho is where I need to be right now. I know that it's time, once again, to continue my education as fun and stressful as it gets--including all those damn three/two day in advance of a debate tournament near-breakdowns that always occur no matter how confident I think I am; or professors who aren't organized well enough to properly teach the material to a degree that it is educational (seriously) AND fun (apparently it's difficult [I'm sure it is, but there are some simple things that can be done to make things more interesting]); or listening to the drama and gossip that seems to hover around the campus and then thinking of ways to easily end the pain in the fastest (and probably cleanest manner). (And we're still trying to be positive, I swear!)

Regardless, I'm on my way back to another semester full of interesting experiences and obstacles that I'll cross when I get to them in their own time. (And for debate, of course, this means I'll be crossing some of them the day after I get back to Idaho). I just hope I have strength enough to move and make it meaningful.

I think after this you'll be proud to know me...lol. I hit a computer meltdown. I could not figure out, for the life of me, how to post something on my class' website. The message board has three posts from me. It was horrible! LOL!

Oh! Nadia has more photos up...quite funny. lol

Ok, Caryn is having the ultimate blonde moment (that, or I know too many people and I'm getting them all confused). Ok, let's go with the blonde moment: When do you fly back? I'm pretty sure you told me (no more than two weeks ago) And you'd think I'd remember, but...umm...yeah: me. Caryn. Blonde. Anyway. Time to go take a 15 min. nap before I have to walk to class. (EWWW! CLASS! EWW!!!!)
