Half Way Through July 31, 2014

My summer class in half way through. I’ve got my reflection nearly done, just have to add a bit from the discussions. This weekend I’ll be doing my proposal for the lit review. After Friday’s Epic Pub Night for all the ex-B&N folk. It’s the only Pub Night I’ve planned to make it to. Too bad I won’t have new job news myself by then. Ah well, keep trying.

Not a whole lot else going on. It’s the week after all the birthdays. No more until mid-August. So much Pop Culture at the store – Frozen, Marvel, and Patterson this weekend. I got some of my birthday things – Les Mis, ST: Into Darkness, Wolverine, and Much Ado About Nothing (love Joss). Need to do some clothes soon.

See you next week.

Awesome Birthday July 25, 2014

Had a great birthday dinner with lots of friends. Thanks to all for coming out to celebrate with me. 🙂  My desktop is now up and running again, with a new surge protector, too. I even got a little thumb drive… that has more than twice the memory of the computer I took to college. It’s not perfect, but I can run dungeons properly now. Other updates to come, but I think the next one is a hard drive and new Windows install, which takes a bit more money and effort. A bit more birthday shopping to go – some books, maybe a movie or two and some clothes probably (thanks for the gifts family and friends). Need to check out textbooks for the fall while I’m on Amazon, too.

Busy school week coming up. I have the usual homework, plus a proposal to write and a reflection. The proposal requires I pick a topic for a literary review and find ten sources. The reflection requires I read all the articles and posts and replies on a single module. So, that’ll all be fun, and possibly interrelated.

Fun tonight and then a quiet weekend of homework and computer time. And a Happy Birthday to Marianne come Tuesday. 🙂

Yes, Now the Busy July 20, 2014

Late posting this week. I should be in bed, but then I wouldn’t get a post in until next week. Class started, homework is pretty light, but that means I have to remember to do it, because I get it mostly done in one day. (Having to remember to go back and post a single reply is apparently harder than having lots more to do later in the week.)

Fun with friends has been lots of fun. Much food and laughter and stories. Birthday week has also started. Happy Birthday Erika, Shari, and me! (And then Marianne next week.) Also had a couple interviews this week. Which made for not much sleeping. Apparently, I’m continuing the trend, but technically, I’ve only been awake for 12 hours, so…

Much Pop Culture at work starting this weekend. Tons of freebies this weekend, and then events galore the next three weeks. Comics, and kids, and authors, oh my!

Happy Belated Birthday to Dad! (Was Tuesday)

I’m suddenly pet-sitting for a tiny dog and several cats for the weekend. Yay for AC/ 🙂 Other than that, it should be a fairly quiet weekend. And then my summer class starts, so that’ll be fun. I hope.

Next weekend is full of events, and a friend moving, and starts the run of Birthdays! Also, I might be trying to build a new PC for my birthday. Perhaps. We’ll see if that goes anywhere. At the very least, I need a new video card, to try and fix my current one.

Wee, fun! 🙂

Happy Independence Day! July 3, 2014

Tomorrow’s the 4th, so I hope everyone has a fun-filled, and safe holiday weekend! Remember, keep your pets away from fireworks.

Not much but, travel recovery this week. The cold seems to be abating, and I have access to my next class this weekend. Had fun with friends and chosen family last weekend. Back on 7ams, so mostly just tired. 😉
