The End... almost.

Well, this term is almost over and I'm pretty excited about the classes I have lined up for next semester. I'm also pretty excited that FINALLY I managed to finish the paper for this class. I'm happy with what I ended up with, but it was such a long process, and I didn't expect it to be this much of a struggle. Either way, this was my first semester here, and I think I've managed to get through it with minimal bruising. Thanks a lot for a great class, and I'll talk to you all soon!

Hi everyone,
This week has been pretty crazy. We have a home recording studio in our house, and between a slew of new clients coming in an out, training the hotdog (who is napping on my lap as I type this), and putting in extra hours at work, I've been a bit sleep deprived. I've been donating as much time as I can to working on my paper, as the first draft I submitted was definitely not even close to something I was happy with. For some reason it was really getting the best of me, but I think I'm finally getting it close. I'm really going to be racing against the clock on this one. In other news, it does look quite probable that we'll be relocating to L.A. in the fall. I can really use the change of scenery. Love Chicago, but I'm ready for a fresh perspective. Hope you all have had a great week.

Hey everyone

This week has been super fun for me. We had Rob's birthday party, went to dinner with some old friends, had a book club meeting, went to see one of my favorite bands, and have been enjoying Mr. Royal. However... with all the social activities, I feel like I haven't been giving as much time to my schoolwork as I normally do. I got everything finished, but I still feel a bit like a slacker. Hope everyone is having a great week, talk soon!

OK, I waited until the last minute to post again...

... but this has been a super crazy week. I've been working like a fiend, and getting this first draft of my paper together for some reason was a lot harder than I thought it was going to be. Sometimes I'm guilty of miscalculating the amount of time it will take me to do something, and I find myself playing catch up against the clock. We also have been talking rather seriously about relocating to Los Angeles in a few months when our landlord is set to raise our rent. As much as I love Chicago, it's blasted cold here! And honestly, I'm ready for a change of scenery. At least, I'm ready for some sun.
Hope everyone's week has been great!

I don't know what to title this and I'm too lazy to think of something.

It seems I'm always putting off writing on my blog until the very last minute. I'm going to try to be better about that. It's been kind of a crazy week here. For some reason, this winter is kicking me in the a, and I keep getting sick, resulting in a canceled trip to go see my sister. Boo. But it did afford me a short work day today, as we closed early due to twelve straight hours of snow that doesn't look like it's letting up any time soon. You know who loves snow? Puppies. Royal keeps diving in and out of it. Good thing for the snowsuit. It's pretty comical. Well, I hope everyone has a great week!

My new puppy!

The excitement of my week includes the addition of a puppy to our household. In my opinion, the cutest, sweetest little baby Dachsund ever whom we've named Royal. Is it bad to put a snowsuit on a dog? Ha ha.

Welcome to my blog!

Hi, everybody.
I have a lot of friends who keep blogs, and while I've always enjoyed reading them, I've never kept one myself. I do tend to write short stories about things that I find funny in my daily life, so I'm sure some of those will make their way on here. Thanks for reading!
