Reading List

Well, a week and a half into break and I’m officially grasping at straws for something to do. It’s not that I don’t have anything to do–I’ve been meaning to redesign my portfolio since the summer–but I never seem to want to do the things I think of at the time I think of them. Lost you yet? I have resorted to reading. I do like reading, but I never have time to read for fun during the school year, so I guess I try not to start any books because I only have time for so much. I’ve reachedContinue reading

2012 Survey

So, how was everyone’s Christmas? Being Jewish, I didn’t do anything for it besides get pretty bored. I’m in that phase of break, where I have lots to do but don’t feel like doing any of it and I am BORED. Georgina has done this End of Year survey the past few years and she sent me the questions so I thought this year I’d give it a go. Forgive me–I don’t know the actual source of the questions. Overall 2012 was a great year for me. Let’s dive in. 🙂 What did you do in 2012 that you’d neverContinue reading

Patches the Helper

I wonder if the cat knows he isn’t making it any easier for me to use my laptop. Probably. He’s a devious little guy. I want a cat in my apartment. Maybe in a couple years. More kitty. Aww, he got up and ran to my brother as soon as he heard him open his bedroom door. He only likes me when I’m the only one home/awake. Merry Christmas Eve from the cat and myself and my cat-attention-stealing brother. I can’t wait to hear all about your spoils of war.

Caffeinated Stream of Consciousness

I think my body is confused. I was tired around 4pm so I made some caffeinated coffee because, even though I’m on holiday break, I didn’t want to take a nap. I think it woke me up for a little while. I drank it slowly and three hours later was just finishing up my 16 ounces when I went to my mom’s work with her to pick up the tips she had forgotten. She’s the assistant store manager at a coffee shop so I got my mug refilled and am still drinking it three hours on. I feel jittery andContinue reading

10am EST

In eight hours, I will be done with my last exam of the semester. In eight hours, I will be handing my MCard to the greeter at the gym and heading down to the basement locker room to change clothes for a much-needed workout. In ten hours, I will be enjoying what is likely to be my second-to-last meal in the dorm dining hall for the semester. In ten and a half hours, I will begin to stress about packing all my stuff into boxes to move out of my dorm room and into my my dad’s house until IContinue reading
