In ten years I will still be sitting at the kid's table.

Hey girls it's Thursday, and you all know what that means.  It's another bitter Thursday with Haley!

I will explain the title.  Last night my family went to go have dinner with the relatives.  The "kids" were just sitting there, minding our own business' when we were asked very nicely (demanded) to move to the  other side of the room, where no one else was sitting.  Us kids range from the ages of eleven to thirteen.  As far as I can tell, none of my older cousins are ever going to move away.  So does anyone know what that means?  That means that no matter how old we get, there will never be room for us at the adult's table. 

On less bitter notes, my best friend and I have planned that we will be going to Oxford together. I have just searched it and it is apparently 4749.140 miles between my house, and Oxford.  Well, that could be a problem.  I'm sure that I'll work around it. 

At Oxford I'll be getting my Master's degree.  I've just googled it (because I really wasn't sure) and it takes roughly two years.  (I also want to say that while I was googling "How long does it take to get your Master's degree?"  one of the top search terms with the beginning "How long does it take to get…" was "How long does it take to get weed out of your system?"  Oh, what is the world coming to?) *
In ten years I will be in the summer before my sixth year of college.

Oh boy… that's exciting stuff. 

Ten years is quite a bit away.  Let's just hope by then I've at least had one boyfriend or something.  J

 Hannah, I look forward to reading your post tomorrow.


Currently reading: I'm going to start Brisingr.  I thought that it would be a good idea to start the Outsiders last night before I went to bed.  It wasn't.  I couldn't stop reading until the end.  So I didn't go to sleep until three.  Bad Haley.

Sisterly discussion: 
Me: "I can't believe that we were shunned by our own family."
Lindsay: "I can.  I mean I wouldn't want to sit next to you either, and you know?  You and I are sort of a package deal."

  *I have just realized that I've turned 'googling' in to some sort of verb.  


  1. Haley, I love your title it made ems and I laugh out loud. I want to go to Oxford too! and MIT and Brown and Middlebury and Yale and... Yeah you get the picture :)

  2. The kids table is the coolest place to be. Seriously, I've been at both tables, and adults are REALLY boring! Kids are far more entertaining. Especially since the "kids" were all roughly your age.
