The Weepy Time Approaches
My dad told me today “When you come back, Shaelyn will be 7. She’ll be in 2nd grade. You’ll miss her first day of school.” Shay is currently in preschool (and she’ll actually only be in first grade when I come back due to her September birthday), but the idea of coming back to a completely different person is just sad to me. Dakota, 6 month old, barely a person...

This is nifty. Or at least, I think so!
I had a dream that I found one of my friends hanging upside down with scissors through her throat and I kept trying to call 911 but I couldn’t. It was terrible because I knew who the killer was and I just couldn’t do anything. Ugh.
Hiccups of activity: On the Defensive →

On the Defensive
I’m constantly on the defensive these days. I feel like I have to be strong and capable, and I’m really not sure I can be. In 44 days, I will go to Guinea to teach Physics in French for the Peace Corps. When I tell people this, they get this look in their eyes like it’s the adventure they always wanted to take but never had the courage to. And sometimes I want to go: “I...
That may have been one of the worst nights of sleep ever.
This was going to be a photo post, but then I discovered that I never took a single picture of my grandparents on my digital camera. Granted, my grandmother died shortly after I got the camera, and my grandfather wasn’t in great shape after that. Whenever I talk about my grandparents, I just mean my dad’s parents. My mom was never close to her parents, and from what I’ve learned...
If today get’s worse, I am gonna punch a bitch. Actually, I’ll probably cry. C’est la vie.
Today I received my invitation for Peace Corps Guinea starting in July! I can’t believe this is really happening!
One of the worst days ever
Today I was supposed to wake up at 530 am and go take an 8 hour engineering licensing exam. Instead i woke up at 6:38 and ended up blowing 170 dollars to try to take a cab there. Total cost of the FE exam: $140 for the registration $80 for study materials $20 for a calculator $170 for a cab ride =$410 I do not have to waste. I am so mad at myself right now and so disappointed and just so...
Today while the blossoms still cling to the vine, I’ll taste your strawberries, I’ll drink your sweet wine. A million tomorrow shall all pass away, ‘ere I forget all the joy that is mine, today. I’ll be a dandy and I’ll be a rover, you’ll know who I am by the songs that I sing. I’ll feast at your table, I’ll sleep in your clover, who cares what...

Bloody Mary →
bestofwikipedia: Bloody Mary is a ghost or witch featured in Western folklore. She is said to appear in a mirror when her name is called three times (or sometimes more, depending upon the version of the story), often as part of a game at slumber parties. Other very similar tales use different names for the character including Mary Worth, Mary Worthington, and Hell Mary among others. (via Eva) ...

I really really really want to travel. And not just travel in the sense of vacationing and experiences like that, but I also want to do something that is really meaningful, like volunteer in a developing nation and immerse myself in another culture. Don’t get me wrong, I love my chosen career… This. I completely agree…and thanks for reminding me to keep finishing my Peace Corps...
