The Time We Thought We Lost the Car

I didn’t get off work till late, so sorry this is so late in being updated. I really don’t have anything to say. Our adventure in figuring out where we last parked the car was quite thrilling. When you have to move your car every few days remembering where you last parked it can be a bit daunting. Luckily our parking territory is only a few blocks, so we didn’t have to do too much walking.

I hope you all are having a great day, and please know that you are always appreciated.

 

I like that I’m still figuring my life out.

This is a rather large revelation for me. I’m generally someone who has a plan for every minute of everyday, and if a plan doesn’t work I always have a plan “b” or “c”. I’ve been getting a bit discouraged that I still haven’t heard anything from the Masters program, and I was talking to a friend who is also applying for Masters programs. We were having the same concerns about what to do with our lives depending on the response from our respective schools and I made a joke that we’ll just hang out and keeping working.

I may have said it as a joke to try and make our situations seem less stressful, but I realized that even if neither of us get accepted to our schools life is still going to go on and we’ll both probably be Ok. Sure we both had a plan for our future, but it doesn’t mean that if that one plan fails we don’t have a future.

It just means that we both will need to reevaluate what we want to do with our lives. I’ve seen friends get in Masters programs who love it, and others who don’t. I have some friends that are happy without getting a second degree and they already are doing something they enjoy. It is the curse of the newly post graduate. We’ve had our lives pretty structured for us until now and this new lack of direction is a bit startling. Despite the fact that I tend to have a plan for everything I actually like that I don’t have anything really set in stone right now.

I’m surrounded by some of the best friends I could ask for, and I like the life I have right now. Yes, there are certainly some places in my life I’d like to improve, but overall I’m doing pretty well for a 22 year old.

 

Mornings are hard.

I’m waiting for work to start, and I’m sorry I didn’t get a post out. I just felt like I didn’t have anything important to say. Not that I’m saying anything really important now…..

Still no word, so I’ll have to wait until next week to find out if I got accepted. I have started looking for some editing internships that look good. You don’t even have to be in college. I thought y that was nice because it’s been hard finding them.

I am feeling 100% better after the concussion. I felt like it took forever, but those things always seem to.

Have a great day, dear readers. You are more appreciated than you know.

Regular posts to resume tomorrow.

Hello dear Readers,
We had a lovely long weekend with the in-laws. They flew home this evening, and regular posts will resume tomorrow. Maybe I’ll here back from the Masters program tomorrow. o_O

That’d be awesome, so here’s hoping.
Have a great night!

Family visiting for the weekend.

Hello, dear readers. We had some family fly in for the weekend, so posting will be suspended for the remaineder of the weekend.
Have a great weekend, and I hope you all have Monday off to make it an extra long break!
Happy Reading!

Stunning reading of John Keats’ “Ode to a Nightingale”

A friend found this and upon watching it I was stunned at the beauty of it. Right here is a prime example of why poetry should be read to be fully appreciated.

Here is the link: John Keats’ “Ode to a Nightingale”

It is read by Benedict Cumberbatch who has gained so much of my respect from this reading.

Also, I thought today was Friday (still a bit messed up on the days), so I didn’t really have anything thought out for today. I hope this video makes up for the lack of interesting content I am providing.

So, take five minutes of your day and listen to this. Keats is by far one of my favorite poets, and this reading is just phenomenal.

Have a good rest of your day!

HGTV is my life…

Watching reruns on the HGTV website is pretty much all I’ve been doing the past few days. I really wanted to get some reading done, but the perpetual migraine is making it difficult to focus on anything. 

I was already addicted to HGTV before, but I have never had it be so readily accessible. Hence, my problem. Luckily, I go back to work tomorrow, so at least I’ll be able to do something. 

It is two weeks since I sent in my application, so I will hopefully hear this week or next whether I got accepted to the Masters program. I’m hoping it’s a yes, but I have a backup plan if I don’t make it.

I got the job at Starbucks when we first moved to Seattle because we weren’t making enough money to afford our apartment. I didn’t really spend much time searching for a job that utilized my major because I really just needed something that paid the bills. Now that we’re stable I think I will try and find something else. I like the people I work with a ton. They are some of the best friends I have, but I think I will either try and find a job tutoring or seeing if the local library would be willing to have someone tutor there. 

I don’t think I could handle teaching, but I think that tutoring would be a good way to help other people better their writing. I’ve really wanted to volunteer at a pet shelter, so I might try and find a shelter that’s near here where I could spend a few hours a week. My only concern with that is that I might end up bringing some animals home. 0_0 

All of these brainstorms are riding on whether I get into the program, but I’ll probably still research my other options anyhow. I really just want to hear the decision! I’ve started checking my email about five times a day. Too much? Overeager? I don’t think so.

I hope you all are having a wonderful day!

 

The time I got a concussion

I can’t even say it was because I did something as daring as night skiing. We didn’t end up going. Instead we ended up spending yesterday afternoon in the medical clinic. I am really embarrassed to even say how I managed to concuss myself, but what the heck. I hit my head on the sharp edge of my dryer door. I was looking for a sweater to wear skiing and I leaned over and whacked my head.
If that’s what happens when I’m at home I can’t imagine the trouble I would have gotten into on those bunny hills.
But other than groggy I am no worse for wear. Just embarrassed I lost an impromptu scuffle with my dryer.
I’m supposed to be avoiding mental stimulation for at least the next four to let my brain heal. I might die of boredom. I probably should not be writing this at the moment because looking at the screen is tiring, but I obviously live an adventurous life. Next time that dryer better watch out.

Anyhow, I hope you all had a great day, dear readers. Have a pleasant evening.
