Busy, Busy, Busy

So my goal of writing once every day (or so) is totally and completely down the drain, so here’s a little recap of everything that has happened in my life since I last posted:

  • Went down to Baltimore again for my grandparents’ 50th anniversary and a family reunion to celebrate it.  Got to see my grandparents’ new condo which is fabulous and beautiful and simply amazing!  I also got to go out and find toys to fill the basement for all my little cousins (5 under the age of 5).
  • Caught cold from one of the aforementioned cousins.  Took an extra day and a half off of work because of it.  Still felt miserable for about a week.  But am all better now!
  • Went to the doctor’s office for an annual check-up.  Got 2 vaccines, on in each arm, which hurt for about 2 days (in addition to my cold of course!).  Had a lovely discussion about how even though my boyfriend and I have been dating for about a year and a half, I have no need for the pill.  To quote my doctor, we are “happy being *pause* companions”.  Shocking, I know!
  • Speaking of el boyo, he is in town visiting for 2 whole weeks (plus a few days!)!!!  So much happiness. 😀
  • Discovered a fairly interesting and not too overbearing feminist site/blog: www.feministing.com thanks to my lovely friend J.
  • Went to my first housewarming (well, apartment-warming, but still…) party for a friend of mine.  Had a blast.  Happy that el boyo, who escorted me, thinks that I have really cool friends.  Watched Fight Club for the first time in forever and still remembered most of it.
  • Spent all of Saturday with el boyo in Boston walking the Freedom Trail, which is very long.  Saw some pretty cool acrobatic street-performers at Faneuil Hall.  Got an awesome hat and wore it around for the rest of the day.  Made mental note to start purchasing and wearing more hats.
  • After walking for 4.5 hours, returned to the Boston Common and joined some friends to watch As You Like It under the stars.  Pretty good performance.  Orlando was played by the male semi-lead in USA’s In Plain Sight.  Didn’t much like him on TV, but he was great on stage!  Didn’t like the beginning or end of the play, but the middle was good fun!  Shocked by the massive amount of people who attended, most of whom probably couldn’t even see the stage (we got there 3 hours before curtain and so got good seats, though inconsiderate idiots in really tall chairs blocked our view of a good portion of the stage since we were sitting on picnic blankets).  Partook of a delightful European-esque picnic for dinner of bread and butter and grapes – yum!  Definitely an experience that should become an annual event.
  • Arranged with my work to take the next two weeks part-time and work at home to maximize my time with el boyo.  Also was offered a job for next summer – and the school year if I so desire, though my being abroad for the first semester will hinder that slightly…  But still, happy day!  The work is occasionally mind-numbingly dull, but the people at work are so wonderful and nice that I can’t gush enough about them!
  • Rediscovered my love of the sound of keys on a keyboard tapping.  Like as I write this.  And this.  And this.  Ok, stopping now.
  • Discovered that I think that I would love to get my Masters in Library Science and work in a library some day since I love working at my local one this summer, both in processing and at the Children’s desk (even though as I rule I generally don’t like children very much…).  Tonight I even helped two people find books (last week I shelved the whole time)!  My memory of my beloved children’s books isn’t as bad as I thought it was.
  • On that note, I discovered that the University of Hawaii offers a program for library science, so I may kill 2 birds with one stone and move down there to get my master’s 😀

There’s probably more that has happened, and there will be more to come.  But for now, ta-ta and au revoir!

  • OOO- I saw Dark Knight!!!  And it was amazing!!!
