After this, I don't have a lot of posts ready to go up, so I'm sorry if I'm not as active as usual. Alison will have to pick up my slack. :) College has made me super busy, and I miss reading and blogging more regulary. But I'm still having lots of fun.

So. Used any unusual words in conversation recently?


  1. I LOVE THESE. I think I like "Quiescent" or "Effervescent" best, but they are all going on my Awesome, Random words list. :D

    Glad you're having fun in college, and hope you're able to get back into blogging soon :)
