New Life

I haven't updated in quite awhile... obviously.

Shortly after my last post my husband left me. And then I met a wonderful, incredible, amazing English man and I am currently working on my move to England!

Big news, short post. For now. :-)

This is really funny. (An email pertaining to golf.)

Dear Friends,

Many of you may not realize that I've been very busy over the last seven years, putting my thoughts and ideas together in a book.

I believe my new book on GOLF gives the reader valuable playing tips and insider information I've gained through my years of lessons, struggle and experiment.

I am very proud of the results, and to assist with marketing, I am asking friends and family to help me out. I hope you find this a useful tool to help you enjoy your game much more while you enjoy the great outdoors.

The cost is only $9.95. Don't wait until they're all gone !!!!

Another blog recommendation

I know, I hardly say anything at all... maybe I might remedy that someday. But for now I want to point out one particular entry from a doctor blog I highly enjoy. After reading this entry, make sure to put his blog in your RSS reader or at least bookmark it. He's the bees knees.

Doctor Grumpy on "Jobs".

Oh and I graduated. Magna Cum Laude. :-) It's been quite the lifestyle change and adjustment. I cannot believe I started in 2006, which now seems so long ago, yet here I am finally finished and it feels like it went by in the blink of a eye.

Freebird

I am preparing to graduate this month. I am beyond thrilled and excited. I still have two finals to go--stats and geology--but I am fantasizing about the free time I will have when I graduate. (Um, especially considering today's economy, oui? Boooo.)

Nonetheless, I am looking forward to fun reading, golfing, finishing up projects, organizing and creating new projects. Like some quilts. I have to finish two and figure out some plans for other fabrics I have. But back to the whole economy thing... I also get to look forward to revising my resume 58 times a day and submitting it so I can be rejected. Oh well.

Even though I have to worry about gaining employment, I do look forward to living life without tests, papers or school-related shtuff hanging over my head. YAY!

What a long, strange journey it's been. KIT

Ha ha.

Very good point

I love this post, from a fantastic blog. Please read, it's a little thought about blogging in general and how it's "evolved". (I'll leave it in bare bones link-style.)

(Oops, that didn't work. Take two. Hopefully this will work.)

Long time, no see

I know this is pathetic around here! It's like, why even bother posting anymore when I don't do it regularly. Oh well. It's my blog and I can do what I want.

What I want to do is tell a cute story from a geology field trip I went on this weekend. We went to a local mountain to look at all the glaciation related stuff and someone had brought their dog. A very cute, very energetic border collie.

My professor tried to climb up the side of the road to point out the "crescent pressures" on a big boulder, and the dog took that as a big green light to race right into him, nearly knocking him over and off the slope. Man, I wish I had a video camera going at that moment because it was just so cute.

The dog was all excited and jumping/climbing/digging in the snow as my professor continued to lecture and finally told the dog "It's okay, dog, it's only glaciation."

And I had to laugh because the doggie started to dig into the storm layers of the snow, thus undoing some time work for glaciation in that area.

Yeah, I know, you had to be there, but it still is cute.

In other news, I have found a camera for a Kiwi and man, they are so adorable! I love watching this little chickie do his thing.

I love animals.

I have 4 weeks of classes left, and 1 week for finals. I'm graduating this May and I cannot wait. Although, it's definitely a paradox because I want to be done with school so badly but I also don't want to be out there looking for a job right now. Yeee-ikes. :-(

Ugh and Grrrrr

I usually have a hard time logging into my account, that's partially why I haven't updated in forever. But I managed to log in with relative ease tonight.

I do not have anything smashing to say. It's been the same old, same old around here. However 2010 looks like it should be a big year for me. I GRADUATE FINALLY IN MAY!
Man, 4 long years working towards this moment. Long hard years. Cannot believe it's been 4 years.

Oh and I earned straight A's this last semester! Hooray!

I'm doing an interim class, so I'm in school right now. For 7 long straight days. However the good news is that we only have to write some response papers. The real semester doesn't begin until January 18 and I didn't want to have to spend the week prior to that writing a long paper. So once this class is done, I'm done! I get to have a little mini-break before the semester fires up.

Anyway, back to what I was saying. 2010 will bring about my graduation, my hopefully successful job hunt... and even if I'm not successful I'll go back to bus driving because... I want to move out of my parents' house! Man, I'm so ready for independence. To move on. To start our life together. My husband and I have lived with my parents for our entire married time. Hell, we even had the "wedding" here in this house. (It was a quick elopement thing that has a long story attached. And it's actually an unusual story but I don't feel like even thinking about it right now. The circumstances were not really good.)

Well, I have 108 pages to read before my class tomorrow so I'll quit writing now.
