I was accepted to Kent State’s eDegree program on Friday, and got all the rest of my paperwork over the weekend. I’ve made contact with my academic advisor and have registered for my fall classes. 🙂 Mostly all core classes, with just one fun webdesign workshop at the end of semester if I’m up for it. So very excited to be going back to school. (Yes, I’m a geek.)

Had a great time camping this past weekend. The weather wasn’t too bad, a bit chilly at night and some rain here and there, but nothing serious until the downpour Sunday night. Much tasty food was had, many new dutch oven recipes were tried. And of course, there were awesome campfires and tasty s’mores. Looking forward to doing it again.

On the apartment hunt front, I’m finding that apartments with washer/dryer hookups under $500 are few and very far between. Looks like I’ll be living in a building where many of my friends used to live come this August. With a bit of creative arranging, and a little bit of kitchen cabinet/butcher block shopping, it should work out.

No dice on the job search front yet, but I’ve a lot of applications in, and in the meantime, B&N is giving me fairly decent hours. What with all the folks leaving, they’ve gotta have someone around. So, we’ll see how things go there.

Star Trek (no spoilers) May 16, 2013

Really liked the new Star Trek movie. Got to go see a sneak peak with friends last night. We had a lot of fun together, including free cookie Wednesday afterward at Max & Erma’s. I think it would have been just as good in 2D, but the sneak peak didn’t give us that option. Fortunately, 3D tech has gotten better and it didn’t make me ill, though many folk complained about lens flare. I’m just used to it, I guess. (Thanks Joss.) This weekend will be spent with friends, hanging out on Friday and fleet on Saturday and Sunday. Next week is Camping! Yay camping! Haven’t done that in Ages. 🙂

All paperwork has been completed and filed with Kent State. Now I get to wait for a decision. Quite excited by the prospect. Still poking libraries for jobs. Waiting for acceptance to plan the rest of the financials. Trying to decide if I’m staying in this apartment complex or moving elsewhere. Will be looking at a place or two in Bexley on Monday. Bookcase space being the hardest part of finding a new apartment, second only to washer/dryer hookups.

Hope everyone had a great Mother’s Day this past Sunday.
