I got my hair cut this morning. Six inches shorter overall, and maybe about eight inches shorter where the layers are. I feel like a better person. I'm aware that this is one of the most ridiculous things I've ever said, but still--I feel like a better person.

My family is doing extensive cleaning over spring break. We have a sheet spread out on the floor with loads of crap all over it, and we're making decisions about whether to sell, give away, or keep things as we hold them in our hands. This method was taken directly from "Clean Sweep," a TLC show my family enjoys. I love cleaning and sorting.

I'm going out with Daniel tonight, and tomorrow starts the overnight trek to Indy that I've been looking forward to for weeks. And after that is an entire week of wonderful, relaxing break time.

Last night, while I was making waffle cones at work--my most productive thinking seems to come while I'm making waffle cones! What am I going to do while I'm away at school?--I had what felt like an enormous epiphany in regard to why I want to study English in college and become a writer. I got home from work and wrote pages and pages. I'm still trying to make sense of it all, but it has something to do with wanting to grasp the whole of life through literature and failing without a doubt but feeling satisfied in an attempt versus working in a profession that focuses on one aspect of life and brings definitive success after a certain point. As far as epiphanies go, mine isn't flawless or fool-proof, but really, what is? All I know is that my mind was absolutely racing as I made what felt like dozens of milkshakes, and I wanted to do something rash like hug my boss or tell complete strangers "My life has sudden purpose" as I handed them their brownie sundaes with hot fudge and whipped cream and cherries placed almost perfectly on top.
