Excited!

Suddenly, a lot of exciting things are happening to me. I can't handle excitement very well, so I've been skipping and dancing around the house like a retarded cat in one of their "oh my god I must bounce of the walls and catch all the imaginary butterflies" moments.

So what's going to happen then? First, I'm going to start school soon. (Alright, not that soon, it's in about three weeks. But soon enough to get excited.) I almost finished the registration humbug and am off to buy new pens and notebooks, and I can't wait to get started!
Then, my dancing course starts again in September. I haven't danced for two months, and I've really missed it! So that's something to look forward to as well.
Our Shadowrun rpg group is going to start as well next week. We've been practicing a bit over the summer, to get acquainted with the game mechanics, and now the real story is about to begin. Time for some futuristic, nightly, infiltrating, and hacking action!
I also might start a new job! It's not exactly a new job, but a different branch at the office I work at. At the moment I'm working as a waitress at different restaurants and events, but our office also has a cooking department. At my last job I helped out in the kitchen (because the staff there was a bit... incompetent, to be honest), and realized that I like cooking and decorating dishes a lot more than being a waitress. So my office told me I could give it a try and see if I like it, and if so, I could switch!
Besides this job, it's also possible that I'll be helping out my mother in the book store she works at. She doesn't always have time to work, or sometimes she could use some help, so today I've learned how to open up the store and how the register works and all that. I love working with books, and it's a lovely store, so it would be nice to spend some time there!
Nope, it's not over yet! In a month I'm starting a course of Japanese, a language I've been wanting to learn for a long time. Probably since I was fifteen years old and discovered Japanese music. A friend of my Shadowrun group is starting up the same course as well, so I'll already have a friend there. Which is good, because I'm awful at making new friends.
And lastly... (and I personally think this one is the best), I've won an auction to go on a photo shoot with three amazing people. This is something I've been thinking about doing for a long time, because I would like to feel comfortable in front of a camera. It would be really good for my self-esteem. I've heard people say that I'm pretty sometimes, and for some reason I'm having trouble accepting that. Not that I want to be a model or something, I hardly have the body figure for that. But I'd really like it if this would work out to boost my self-confidence a bit. And the best part is, it will probably be steampunky!

In short, a lot of new adventures, all more or less around the same time. I hope my ship will hold course and be able to steer through them all without causing too much damage!

      And yes, I could use some help! But I'll save it for after the exams. ^^
