- I've been terribly bogged-down with school work. Every time I think to myself "Oh, just finish this assignment a bit early, and you'll be running ahead of schedule! Then you'll have plenty of free time to actually enjoy yourself and have a life!" I'm sadly brought crashing back down to Earth by yet. another. assignment. (But, in that same vein, I did actually just finish my last paper for this week - so far - and now have a few minutes of free time before getting back to studying for a quiz later today and a huge exam tomorrow!)
- Any time that is not spent either physically at school or studying/doing homework, I am of course, at work. Really. Its getting to be ridiculous.
- I really haven't had much to blog about, which is terribly depressing. Why? See the above 2 excuses.
So, how is it I'm home, and not doing any school work right now? Well. Its actually a funny story. I went to work at 6:30 this morning, as I have been doing every Monday and Wednesday since school started. Only apparently I was supposed to work at 6:30 PM today, not AM. Crap. So I turned around and came back home, which is actually quite lovely because now I'm fully awake (much earlier than I would have been if I knew I was supposed to work in the evening, since I don't have to be at school until 2:00 today), and I was able to churn out a paper that I've been putting off for at least a week in only about an hour. I seem to be more productive in the early morning hours...maybe my brain is more fresh in the morning. I don't know! Haha.
So what's new? Hmm...
I have some new residents in my garden:
And this, thank goodness, is a rubber snake that my grandma thought it would be funny to hide in my tomato plant. I actually thought it was real for a second...so I poked it. It didn't move. I took it out and threw it on the ground, and every day its back in that tomato plant. So I just leave it there now. :) I'm actually not scared of snakes, is the funny thing... but one time my sister hid one in a pile of leaves while we were cleaning out the shed, and it definitely scared me. So now they always try to do that to me...not fair!
Last week my mom made some delicious chicken parmesan, and I added some fresh basil from my garden to her sauce.... it was so delicious! Too bad the picture came out so blurry....
This is my new favorite nail polish color...its called Twist and Shout, and I just love it. I think other people think I'm crazy though. I had one customer at work say, "Oh, look, you're ready for Halloween early!"..... and she was serious. That kinda hurt my feelings. But I still love it! My manager astutely observed that it matched his Mt. Dew, too. *rolls eyes*
This is my new favorite outfit. I love Fall clothes so much! Layers, layers, layers and knee socks! I wore this yesterday (I've had each piece for a long time, but that's the first time I combined them like this), and I got so many compliments! My comm. professor told me I'm a stylish girl! Haha. That always makes me feel good.
I made a big sale last week - my biggest yet! Though, I admit, I'm sad to say goodbye to my deer plaques...
At least I know they're going to live with a very sweet girl in the UK! I've made her promise to send me pictures of them hanging in her apartment... what a strange feeling to know that something you created will hang on the wall in an apartment of a person you've never met, on a different continent. Amazing.
I signed up for a free trial of Netflix earlier this week (but yesterday I found out that my dad signed up too so I can cancel mine), and I've watched some interesting movies...
Loved it. Absolutely hilarious mockumentary, starring my boyfriend, Orlando Bloom.
Really not sure what I think about this one..... very strange. Disturbing might be a better word. I liked the little skeleton-animals, but not a big fan of Alice's up-close mouth with crooked yellow baby-teeth, constantly whining "Pleeeeeease, sirrrrr" in the same irritating tone. Meh.
I saw this at Miss Marjorie's recommendation. It was cool, but not at all what I was expecting. Actually, I have no idea what I was expecting, but whatever it was, I still felt surprised after it ended. Cute, slightly disturbing... see for yourselves. PS - there's a whinnying turtle with a tiny saddle. Too cute!
Oh, and I finally got around to watching An Inconvenient Truth. I loved it. Loved it! Besides the few points of regression and melodramatic life-lesson stories by Mr. Gore, I thought it was fabulous. Of course, I would think so because his graphs and data are precisely the things that my major studies are concerned with - in fact, I've already seen all of that data in my classes this semester, although none of my professors have even made mention of the documentary. I guess its because they don't want to say yay or nay to the controversial film.... but either way, I found it absolutely fascinating and well done. Anybody else like it, or not like it? Anybody care to share their opinion about it? This is what I'm studying in school, and I'd like to know first-hand what other people have to say about it!
Ok, I really must stop putting off studying for my Geology quiz and Problems of the Environment exam. At least those are 2 classes that I really enjoy! Hopefully I'll have some more free time again soon, and I'll see you again! :)
