Happy New Year!

January 9, 2010 at 12:22 am (Blogging, Happy, Movies, Vacation)

I know I’m a little late, but it’s still the new year, so the fact that it isn’t the first day of said new year doesn’t matter, right?

Anyway, I have noticed a definite uptick in my blog reader of people who have apparently made it their new year’s resolution to remember their blogs.  And I suppose I could be counted among those.  But at least I have a legit excuse for not writing here more often: I was writing a thesis!  Which is finished!  When I last left you lovely readers, I was still busy working on it, but I can now tell you that, at 41 pages (not counting my epic bibliography), my opus is finished!

In other news, it is a new year, and a scary one at that: graduation is on the horizon!  And on that note, I have started a new blog, which I plan to make available to potential employers to show how amazing I am with social media type things in case I end up wanting to go into that field at some potential point in time.  I mean, I don’t think I’d mind them reading this blog, but it’s not exactly professional…

And I am oddly hype currently, for no explicable reason, so I’m just going to keep jumping from topic to topic, if you don’t mind:

My family and I watched Julie and Julia tonight.  It was cute, but definitely not a great movie.  Meryl Streep and Amy Adams are definitely two of my favorite actresses, and they were the only things keeping the movie watchable.  So watch it if you’re in the mood (and either not hungry or in the process of eating dinner – delicious food is at the heart of this movie!), but don’t have too high of expectations.

In other news, music from the ’40s and ’50s is amazing.

And school starts in a mere three days.  Can’t decide if I’m excited or not.  As a comparison, last semester, I had a grand total of 5 books for all 4 classes I was taking.  This semester, I have at least 20.  Fun times!

And I’m running out of steam.  So a bientot!  No promises of writing here anymore often than last year, but I do promise to maybe possibly update this blog at least one more time in the coming 357 days!
