We had a great time this past weekend. Full of silly games, delicious food, sun, wind, and a little bit of rain. There were campfires and telescopes, Jupiter, Saturn, Venus and a gorgeous moon. We watched fireflies and sky lanterns. Plenty of puppies and even a baby goat – Stormageddon, the cutest kid around. I love camping with my friends from near and far, can hardly wait until the fall.

A few more replies to my internship emails, some no’s, a maybe, and a handful of more people to contact. So, that’s going alright, I guess.

New boss started at work this week. She seems pretty cool, and very motivated to make our store the best at all the things. So, we’ll see how that goes.

A week and a half more of relaxing until Summer classes start. Yay, sleep! 😉

Well, it’s not really summer yet, but looking forward to a fun weekend with my fleet family. Going to be a great time. 🙂

They actually fixed my mailbox this week, so I have a key that works, and a mailbox only I can get into, first time since August 2013. 🙂

Two rejections for Fall internships, and a lot of silence. Hoping for better news after the holiday weekend.

Finished Dragon Princess, now reading Dragon Thief. Really enjoying the silliness.

This is my month off, and I’m still exhausted. I had a really good time at the convention this past weekend (sorry, I didn’t post last week), and I’m really looking forward to going camping next week.

Grades are trickling in, looks like A- in both my classes, and Satisfactory in my workshop. Just a few more weeks until I start back up again. At some point I’m going to get to sleep, right? 😉  Maybe August.

The kids broke my mailbox last week, still waiting on a repairman. But the mailman set my mail on the floor yesterday, so I could actually get it.

Had a great visit with Mom this past weekend. We met a lot of children’s authors and a couple adult authors at the Ohioana Book Festival. We got books for the kids, and two new novels for me by S. Andrew Swan. Liking the Dragon Princess so far. Unreliable thief author, so my kind of book. 🙂  We had a nice visit to the Ashville Viking Festival, as well. And I have a new piece of pewter – Nils Holgerssons on the back of a goose. We also did All the Shopping, for all the little things I’ve been putting off, and some more adulting clothes for getting and keeping a new job. And shoes, always in need of new work shoes, hoping these last a little while.

This week is finals. One is done and turned in, the other I’m working on today, and hope to have done by early Sunday evening. The former being a group project, the latter being a case study. So close to done! And then a month off for all things Fleet. MarCon next week, and Summer Games a couple weeks later. Going to be a busy month. 🙂
