Hello there Lovelies!
    I have good news and bad news.
    The good news is that I've started another novel, which in a way could also be the bad news... I mean, it's great. Yay! New novel! But at the same time, who knows when I'm going to finish it? But believe me guys, this ones going to be good one. :) And now that I'm excited, you guys better get freaking excited. Or not, you know... your choice. [If you'e been with me long enough to laugh at the joke and understand it, then: "Cheers!"]
    Some other good news is that school is starting this Thursday! And who is excited for that? *raises hand quietly* No one? No?? Oh, okay... Just me again.
     Anyways... The bad news is that although I've been preparing for school and all that, I haven't exactly read my second summer reading book. It's amazing how I can re-read Looking for Alaska four times in one week, but I can't even read one chapter of my summer reading book. It actually quite sucks to say the least. [Not the Looking for Alaska part, but the summer reading book part] 
    Wow, this is such a failure of a blog post.. Sorry about that, Dream Box. I guess all of my writing skills are going towards my novel - and only my novel - tonight. So I'm just going to awkwardly wrap this up because I want to get back to writing, and I really just have nothing else to say. Alright, well I'll see you soon, when that is? I have no idea - but I'm getting there.
 
Howdy!
    How have you guys been? It's been six days, and I've missed you. So here I am again! Pleading for your mercy, but not really, because I don't care since this is my digital diary and not yours.. Who ever "you" are.. Anyways, I just wanted to say Hi and that although this summer is coming to an end, and I have failed to document most of it here in my Dream Box, it's been a great one and I'm glad I could share it with you guys. Man, that was the longest run on sentence ever... 
    But honestly guys, if someone were to ask me how my Summer was I could honestly tell them that it was the best summer of my life. It even makes me think of a Looking for Alaska quote - that sounds so nerdy, but it is indeed true... - that goes like this:
    "Before I got here, I thought for a long time that the way out of the labyrinth was to pretend it did not exist, to build a small, self-sufficient world in the back corner of the endless maze and to pretend that I was not lost, but home. .... So I came here looking for the Great Perhaps, for real friends and a more-than-minor life."
    Now, with this quote I'm not saying that I was lonely before, or even that I hid in the back corner of life. What I'm trying to say is that before I got to this point in my life, I was just another stupid teenager who didn't know what she wanted, and I still don't, but I have learned a lot and that's made me more of what I want to be and hope to be someday. When summer came, I was looking for something great, friends, and - of course - a more-than-minor life. And that is exactly what I got. 
    This summer was amazing, and it couldn't have been better. So much happened, in such little time. I went on a great adventure around Seattle with my friend Mau. I went to Chicago and visited the Bean in Millennium park which has always beena dream of mine. I watched the Lake Union fireworks on the 4th of July - which I have never done before. I went to summer school for three weeks, and liked it. [Now, let's be honest here, who can really say that?] I went to FREAKING ENGLAND by myself to study at Cambridge University. I even started my own Collab channel with six other awesome teenagers.
    ....I don't know what else to say other than: "Pinch me." Surely this must be a dream, an amazing, beautiful, surreal dream. That's honestly all that I can think, that it's all just a dream. But amazingly, it's not. And I miss everyone I haven't seen since my last day of school, those I parted ways with from the Cambridge College Programme, friends who haven't been around, and even my friends that I've seen recently. But I can leave you with this, which makes me always feel better:
    "Don't be sad that it's over, just be happy that it even happened." -Aaron Geldner
                        And this one:
    "We're just one day closer to being reunited." -Ben Troyer
 
Greetings Lovelies!
    How are you?? How has your past month gone?? Mine was absolutely fantastic. So here are some of the things that went on while I was away:
    1) I went to FREAKING ENGLAND!
    2) I met this amazing guy
    3) My international Collab started!
    4) I got the Flu...
    5) I got a Sonic Screwdriver :]
    6) I came home from England
    7) I went to the most amazing Mariners game in the history of Mariners games
    So let me elaborate a bit... England. I fell in love! I went there to study Criminal and Forensic Psychology, British Culture and History, and Creative Writing. But what I learned there was much more.. I learned more about myself - I know, it sounds cheesy, but it's true - I learned about life at Uni, friendship, the different culture, the English riots, and much much more. It was so much more than I could have ever asked for, and sometimes I just wish I had a TARDIS so I could go back in time and experience it all over again... Ignoring the small detail that I would cause a paradox by doing so, but you know, DETAILS. Pfft.
    Next, this guy.. Well, he was a brilliant guy who was also a Doctor Who lover. But that's all I'm telling you because just because I live on the internet, that doesn't mean my life should be on the internet for all those to see. :) I have my secret from you, Dream Box, but it's for the best. 
    Continuing on, my international Collab started! And I'm really proud of it! We have everyone doing different days, and I'm Monday. We started on the 1st of August and have been making videos ever since. There's 7 of us - for each day of the week - and so far it's gone great! To check out our channel you can click here. And I'll put my most recent video below. :)
    Next on the list.. The Flu. Oh my gosh. You may know how much it sucks to have the 24-hour flu, but you probably haven't experienced it while you just newly fancied someone.. It SUCKS. I missed out on an awesome art museum and the Alfred Hitchcock play The 39 Steps. :( Worst of all I decided to go to my programme's Traffic Light Party that night, was sitting with the guy I fancied and then proceeded to run into the bathroom and vomit.. It was horrifying. Oh! And I've also learned that I have the irrational fear of blowing my nose infront of other people. Like, it literally terrifies me. So I have to leave the room and go into the EMPTY bathroom and blow my nose. Why I have this fear? Who knows.. But I am a messed up person to begin with, so what do you really expect? Also, is there a word for this fear? If you know of a word, please let me know.
    Moving on... I am now the owner of a SONIC SCREWDRIVER! Yes! I, Natalie Wong, have purchased a Sonic Screwdriver that makes awesome sounds and works as a regular screwdriver, it's amazing. Really, it is.
    Wow, well that was a short lived topic.. Anyways... I've finally come home from my 21 day trip to England, and I'm loving the Seattle weather right now! It's beautiful, and it's lovely, and I'm just so glad to be back. But to all of those from CCP, I MISS YOU SO MUCH! I cannot even handle it sometimes.. <3 I miss you all...
    Anyways, I went to this amazing Mariners game tonight!! [Just so you know, the Mariners are the Seattle Baseball team, and they kind of suck...] But tonight's game was so nifty, and it was so eventful! Two homeruns in the first inning, the catcher broke his nose, there were some fantastic double plays, a fight with the umpire and a reversed call. It was just absolutely amazing, but I'm probably boring you, so I'm just going to stop now...
    So Finally, Goodbye. I don't know when I'll see you next, but hopefully it will be soon. :) Look for me on 5C1V on Monday! And I'll be posting another Dear Alexander the moment I'm done with this blog post! I PROMISE!!! Alright, well.. Salutations! -Nat
