In Which I Discuss School and Give You Something Funny To Read

March 20, 2007

Last night I had a dream in which I was having a conversation, in Spanish no less, with a hybrid of a puppy and a goat. In the same dream I was also applying to graduate school. I personally think that if I am able to have a Spanish conversation with a puppygoat then I should be able to get into grad school. I am not sure exactly what this dream means, but I tend to lean towards the interpretation that it shows how I am losing my mind due to school. If I ever go a few days without posting, it is a safe bet that I am overwhelmed with schoolwork. I was so happy this morning after the…

Wanted: Tact

March 16, 2007

I was studying at school with a couple of classmates, and since we study diseases it was not strange that the topic of death arose. A snippet of the conversation: Allie: I don’t know what I’d do if my mom died, I seriously don’t know. Ryan: Well, you’d cope and you’d move on, that’s just what happens. Allie: Let’s hope so. Me (to Ryan): Well, she could kill herself. (A minute or so later I find out that Ryan’s mom died 2 years ago. Great.) Or, take these conversations with David for example: (FYI – this particular David is my boyfriend, NOT my brother, or my uncle, or the kid at church, or my good friend’s brother – all who…

The Extent To Which I Will Go For A Little Cash

March 12, 2007

I go to school full-time and I support myself by loans, but I was not able to get enough loans to comfortably cover all my expenses. Thus, I got myself a part-time job but it pays $9/hour and I only work about 6-10 hours a week – not exactly enough to pay the rent. All of the money I have in my account at this time must last me until the end of August, and I have some expenses coming up (i.e. $150 for a dental visit due to my lack of dental insurance and $300+ for a plane ticket to Kansas for my best friend’s wedding) that are causing me concern. So when the following flier showed up in…

Spring Reading Thing!

March 10, 2007

Whenever I get the chance I try to search around the worldwide web for new blogs that I might enjoy reading. There is a whole huge blogging world out there and it is kind of intimidating, but fun. I haven’t yet gotten too extremely involved in that world because I believe it can become quite time-consuming, and I already have a lot going on. But then I came across this:   A blogger named Katrina at Callapidder Days is hosting a spring reading challenge, and this is just my kind of thing. So I am going to participate, and you are invited also! All you do is make a list of books that you want to read between March 21…

Spring Break 2007!

March 9, 2007

It’s Friday of the week of my spring break, and even though I really do need to spend most of my time today working on school assignments, this is the first day that I actually don’t have anywhere school or work related to be, and this fact causes me to rejoice. This is how I have celebrated: >I slept in until 10 a.m. This means that I got almost 12 hours of sleep! Wow! >I have not changed out of my oh-so-comfortable-and-cute shorts and shirt that I slept in. >I guess it goes without saying that I have not taken a shower, although I DID wash my face. But what doesn’t go without saying is that I have absolutely no…
