Thank you for this:
This blog invests and believes in the PROXIMITY-nearness in space, time and relationships. These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement! Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award."
For the longest time, I had "blog thing" on my to-do list and I couldn't for the life of me remember what that meant. (I guess that's what happens to stressed-out, overworked college kids...) It wasn't until I read the comments on my English class characters post that I remembered I wanted to thank you, Lydia, for flattering me so. You're so sweet! I highly encourage everyone to check out her blog for refreshingly cute and classic fashion, and pictures of an adorable cat named Olive!
...And I present this award to Yellow, Lil J, Richel, Noncommittal, Fazed-girl, Jessie, TJ, and Dennis - all good friends of mine, and all bloggers who have unique takes on life's little quirks.
I've got to go finish my pre-lab before it's due. I have chemistry lab from 6:20 to 9:30 tonight in the deepest, darkest corner of the chemistry dungeon. Who's ready to calibrate pipets?
