bits and pieces

  • I’ve decided that dogs and owners really do resemble each other. Sometimes so much so that they even start to look like each other. It makes me really wonder what having Fenway says about me…
  • I officially finished my first semester of graduate school last week. I’m so excited because between life, school and work, it has been a very overwhelming month for me. I wish I could figure out how to squeeze some more time out of my day. I think one thing I need to work on is binge sleeping. I have the bad habit of sleeping only 2-3 hours a night for a handful of nights in a row. Well, by the time the end of the week rolls around, I’m extremely physically exhausted and I simply crash. I can’t keep my eyes open and I will sleep the entire day away. I’m thinking if I instate a more regular sleep schedule (i.e. sleeping less hours EVERY day 😉 Possibly 5-6 hours?) I don’t know what will work, but I need to figure that out as soon as possible.
  • Every time I see people working on roofs- whether decorating for Christmas or cleaning gutters or whatever- I get really nervous. Why are there so many people who don’t use protective measures?
  • I adore real Christmas trees.
  • I really like seeing people decorate and light up their houses for the holiday season, but let me tell you… I HATE decorating with lights. There is always a light thats dead that ruins the set. The cords are always twisted up. Bah humbug. Everyone else in my family seems to love decorating with lights, and they do an excellent job as well. Which means I’ll just pay them to decorate my house once I own them.
  • Last night I flirted with a bongo player while he was performing. Well, he played bongos, guitar and he sang. Multi-talented gentleman.  I won’t lie, it was a bit of a boost of confidence for me. It was quite obvious he was looking for me in the crowd as people moved around. Unfortunately, he was a younger gentleman, and as much as cougars are all the rage these days, I think I’m a bit young to enter the Cougarhood.

    Glad to see you survived your first semester. I remember this time last year when you were freaking out about applying. It only gets better from here, right?

    I know! It seems absolutely insane to me that I was applying to grad schools around this time last year. I am so thankful that is OVER!
    And it already has gotten better… now I can just freak out about my school work instead 😉
    It was nice hearing from you!
