The Return of The Millie

Well, hello there, dear followers! I have missed you!

I never meant to be away so long, but one thing led to another...

I become a responsible adult in April and then I spent the next two months pretending to work hard on studying for finals and finishing high school and such. Mostly, I just watched whole seasons of Survivor on YouTube and played thousands of games of computer solitaire, while staring listlessly off into space contemplating what I was going to do with my life.

On June 16th, I graduated from high school and simultaneously graduated from college with my Associates degree. (I kinda love Glorious Washington's Running Start program, which lets HS juniors and seniors attend college full-time for free!)

In the early hours of June 19th, my first nephew was born. And in the slightly less early -- but still quite ungodly -- hour of 5:00 am, I was at the airport heading to Sierra Leone.

That is where I have since then. I really did not forget about you all!

I honestly kept coming up with random posts that I wanted to write, but it seemed somehow awkward to pop up with my top ten favorite Vincent Price mustaches -- after being away so long. ;-D

Anyway, I'm back. And no more school! This summer is gonna be awesome.

I'll be gone in the fall again, but not to school (I'm waiting a year). Instead, I'm gonna be somewhere in the world. I don't know quite what yet. Perhaps on Mercy Ship in Guinea, West Africa. Perhaps on a YWAM DTS in Switzerland. I really don't know yet. It's gonna be awesome though. I'm super-excited!

Anyway, I'm quite happy to be back. I've been forced to write far too many lucid essays these last six months. I NEED to write some nonsensical loveliness!

Favorite Vincent Price Mustaches are NOT awkward. At all.

Sheesh. Your life has been legitimately crazy. All I've been doing is falling in love with a new British actor every other week. And working for $$$ so I can run away to college in 6 months.

I'm looking forward to reading some highly informed posts, hopefully about mind-smushing entertainment. There's been too much quality in my life lately. :D

Millie! I'm so, so, so, so glad to hear you're doing well! I hope this summer and its adventures are wonderfully thrilling for you! Congratulations on being an aunt (it's a mixed bag sometimes, but lots of fun!!), on finishing school, on your work in Sierra Leone! Did I mention I'm really glad to know you're doing so well? Because I am, and I'm really happy to start talking to you again.

This is the blogger formerly known as Harley, btw. <3

I'm so glad you're back!! :D I missed you! And I think this Vincent Price mustache post needs to happen soon.

Also, I'm so excited for you about your travel plans but you NEED to find a place that has internet access okay?? Life without The Millie for an extended period of time would be so miserable I'd probably end up destitute lying on a street somewhere begging for money to buy grapefruit juice to drown my sorrows.

Congratulations to you! Sounds like you've got a lot of great things ahead. :)

Millie said...

Emm: Well, yes, but still. haha

My life has been crazy, because on top of all that, I too have been falling in love with a new accented actor every other week. (And I wish I working for money. haha)

Thanks! :-D

Harley: AWWW, THANKS! I've missed you!

Yes, I quite like being an aunt (I also have a 18 month niece). How are you doing, my dear?

KAAAAAAAAAAAAATE: It shall, some day. When the muse strikes again! ;-D


But, seriously, I would die without internet access. And we need to have a long chat soon. I literally have no idea what's going on in your life and that is quite a problem!

Meredith: Thanks! :-D How is your life going?
