40 Days of 4 Things, Day 7

Remember yesterday when I said I loved that I made this commitment?  I was totally wrong about that.  It is true that I do love writing everyday, and I am fully determined to fulfill this goal for myself because I seldom finish anything I start.  But because of this commitment, I've remembered why I don't write everyday and that's because I don't have the time.  Right now I am studying for a Biology midterm, writing three essays for an English Literature midterm, and struggling with severe caffeine withdrawals (I gave up sodas yesterday).  But again, I made a promise to myself, and I intend to keep it.  So though, I wanted to write a detailed list of four very real things that are happening right now I am again relegated to writing a couple of lists of meaningless nothings.

Four things I am excited about right now
1. My trip to Tennessee which takes place in two weeks.
2. How I've managed to keep my perennially filthy car, clean for nearly three weeks.
3. The new credit card I got yesterday.
4. The fact that a month after my grandmother's death I'm finally starting to feel excitement again. 

Four things I am always excited about
1. The thought of J.K. Rowling one day deciding to write another book.
2. Finishing school and starting an adventure.
3. The thought that one day, hopefully, someone is going to think I'm awesome enough to marry.
4. The prospect of one day being the man I've always hoped I'd be.

Four things I was excited about in my youth
1. Driving (Which turned out to be a bust, if I could be driven around all day I absolutely would).
2. One day being old enough to do all of the things my parents forbid me from doing as a child, including but not limited to: watching The Simpsons (in actuality it sucks, so I don't blame them), eating Lunchables, and cussing up a shit storm.
3. Second base.
4. One day performing on a stage (I totally did this one)

Four things I am never excited about
1.  Hearing people sing off key, even when it's in a joking manner.
2. Seeing people whose faces I recognize, but names I don't remember.
3. Getting my haircut.
4. Meeting people who introduce themselves as musicians or artists.
