Camping Awesomeness May 29, 2014

I had a great weekend camping with 106 other people over Memorial Day weekend. We had beautiful weather, tasty food, and roaring fires. The games kept people entertained, the music kept people bouncing, and the stars were amazing (even if we didn’t manage to see the big meteor show we were supposed to see). I got a little crispy, but not many bug bites at all, (and there was much rejoicing). Can hardly wait to do it again in the fall.

Returning to homework and the store has not been fun this week, but I’m managing, with only a bit more irritation than normal. Mildly crispy skin is itchy. Halfway through my three week class, and going strong.

This weekend is relaxing with the puppy and kitty, and maybe heading out to a bonfire (or two) for a bit Saturday night with friends. Then the last rush of finishing up assignments and discussions by next Friday, so I can have a peaceful June. So very excited for my trip to England. 🙂

Too busy to post from home today. Had a great time with friends and family this past weekend. Even more shenanigans to come this weekend. Homework done for the week, but not many classmates to reply to yet. Have done all I could though. Hope everyone has a great and safe Memorial Day weekend!

MarCon was great this past weekend. I had a blast with all my friends from far and wide. It was good to relax and hang out. The new cups are pretty, and kept trash to a minimum. The new sound system was sweet, and kept both rooms rocking. I’m told we even had some toddlers dancing in a nearby room.

This weekend is more hanging out with friends Friday, a small get-together on Saturday, and then family on Sunday. Mom’s even bringing me her very own homemade tomato sauce! I am ridiculously excited about her sauce. 🙂

Monday is the start of my May-term management class. Three weeks to do ten modules. And I had to buy three books for it. Wheee fun! So I’ll be starting that this weekend, too, because next weekend is camping. Yay, camping!

So, this week starts the crazy. I’m pre-writing this to post on Thursday because I won’t be home. This weekend is MARCon here in Columbus and I will be there starting when I get off work on Thursday until Sunday lunch-time. We are hosting three nights in a row, should be a great time. Perfect for my May break from school.

Then, Happy Mother’s Day!!!

The following weekend are events with friends and family. And the weekend after that is camping from Thursday through Monday, homework-load dependent. I still haven’t heard from the professor yet about anything, including the book, but I got the one every other management class has used, and am just hoping that for a three week class, he doesn’t expect us to buy multiple. The weekend after that, I’m staying home for pet sitting while everyone else heads to Cleveland for Concoction. Which should be awesome for them, and homework time for me.

All A’s again this semester. Yay, fun. Looking forward to learning more cool stuff this summer and fall. I’ve become slightly obsessed with database design since taking my database driven website class, and learning the basics of SQL. Yay organization. 🙂

Started down my usual path.

Saw a random piece of jewelry on a log.

The bridge I usually sit on was out, so I sat beside it.

There were so many trees knocked down and uprooted. It was very strange.

This one left a very pointy stump.
