Yeah…… so life got really busy……..

Last semester A, A, extension, extension

This semester I am finishing my internship (the two extensions from last semester), Firearms, Modern Disasters, CPR for Health Care Providers, Forensic Pathology: Advanced Death Investigations, and Advanced Photoshop.  Sounds like a fun semester to me.

My knee surgery is scheduled for Jan 29, at something crazy like 6am……..

Christmas was good, New Years was good, I will be writing more soon….

Women in Law Enforcement – A

Internship – Extended until February

EIS (my not very happy class) – yikes…. I have to get my “self evaluation” in tomorrow, and there was one assignment I never got around to because it was pointless (seriously… they need a writing sample when I transfered in College Comp 1 and 2  – both with A’s….), and the teacher just doesn’t like me…..

Yep, I’m Still Here

November 20, 2009 at 8:25 pm (Fall 2009, Fun Stuff, Issues, Life, School) (, , , , , , )

I don’t know why, but I have had the hardest time writing on my blog recently.  My life really can’t be that boring…

Ok, keys.  Last week, I went through no fewer than 3 sets of keys in the course of the week.  I locked my keys in the car… It took my 20 minutes to find the spare… I forgot about a set of keys in my jacket pocket… I left a set of keys in my weekly packing… I have since found all my keys and always have access to three copies.

Cabbage.  I want to know whose stupid idea it was to put cabbage on sandwiches.  Nasty!

In super exciting news, Griffin (Phoenix’s half brother) was born this past weekend.  He is super cute and friendly.  Pictures of both boys here.

Let’s see… what else.

In about 2 weeks I’m going to see the TransSiberian Orchestra (it’s a rock orchestra that does a christmas tour every year).  Here is their 2009 Promo:

It’s a lot of fun!!!!

My internship is wonderful! I really can’t say more about it, but I’m working with a great group of people on some really neat things and I’m greatly saddened by the fact that it is already half over.

I’m still backlogged with school.  Six things I absolutely must do this week (write a paper, turn in a paper, register for classes x2 schools, get an extension form signed, write contracts for 2 classes).  Everything else can wait a little bit.

In my study of German, I am now learning country and language names, which are actually kinda neat, because they are really similar to English, but just different enough that they sound really neat.  For example Ich bin Amerikanerin.  Ich spreche Englisch. However, my spelling still stinks.

I really can’t think of anything else to write right now…. I’ll try to write more often!

Simple Pleasures

November 6, 2009 at 5:40 pm (Fall 2009, Fun Stuff, School) (, , )

I really like modular office furniture.  Kinda like this:

There is just so much room to spread out.  That is what I need in my room.


Update! My new desk should be here Tuesday! I found one I liked and decided to sleep on the idea (because it was more expensive than I anticipated), they when I went to look at it again it was on sale! $130 off plus free shipping to my house.  It seemed like fate, so I decided to get it 🙂

Which is really better?

November 3, 2009 at 11:09 pm (Fall 2009, Travel) (, , )

So when I’m staying here, I get an Executive Suite, their biggest room (well suite ’cause there are 2 rooms).  Well, last week, there was a big group here and they had to put me in a Junior Suite (their second biggest room).  I have to admit… I liked the Junior Suite more… It is actually a room not a suite which really means more living space, ’cause who really needs a “living room” for 2 nights… And there was a counter and a comfier chair… oh well.

All of the Sudden

November 2, 2009 at 1:23 pm (Fall 2009, Life, School, Spring 2010) (, , , , )

Why is it that all of the sudden I have sooooooo much stuff I need to do for school????

  • Papers for current classes.  I have 4 that need written (two by tomorrow), and one to be revised.
  • Extension for one of my classes (let’s just hope my dear advisor remembered this…. sigh)
  • Evaluation for one of my classes (next month, but its fast approaching)
  • Application for graduation (yikes! already???)
  • Application to the Master’s program
  • Transcript request for a couple scholarships.
  • Registration for next semester
  • Contracts for next semester.  I’m all set with one, with another my proposed mentor (teacher) is checking if he is allowed to mentor my class and for the third my proposed mentor hasn’t replied to my email…. Yikes!
  • Research paper approval (luckily this doesn’t need to be in until April….)

So, in an effort to keep caught up, I am working off both my computers at the same time (and you don’t even want to know how many programs I am running on each computer….)

Restaurant Reviews

This week, I went to Pino’s Pizza Al Centro.

Super yummy!!!  Just the way I like pizza.  It’s fairly inexpensive (with very large pieces of pizza!), but they only take cash (unless your bill is over $25).

Next semester I have to take one of the following courses:

Emancipating the Mind, Community and Social Change, or The Liberal Artist’s Place in the Community of All Beings.


They sound so boringly awful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have absolutely no interest in any of those courses, and I need to take one of them this spring in order to graduate.  I am very unhappy with my school’s stupid policy  😦

Well, this week (and last) I mostly stuck with places I’ve been before.

But, tonight, I was tempted by the chocolate pudding, homemade marshmallow fluff, and crumbled graham crackers.  Yummy!!!
