1. So I start work a week from today, which means I have to get two school projects done this week. I would usually stress out about it, but school is really all I've got on my plate right now, so it shouldn't be too bad. I'm going to keep applying to library jobs (like I've been doing like whoa), but it's really nice to have a little something here to keep me busy.
2. DC is seriously awesome. It took me a while to adjust to it, but I love the Metro, love walking a lot, love getting to know new people, and especially love Georgetown. Our apartment is ridiculously close to all the best shopping in DC; what's not to love!? It's not feeling like home just yet, but it's feeling very comfortable, and our place is starting to look like a place where people live. For a couple of weeks, it looked completely empty and sad. Now we have a couch, rug and even lights! Things are looking up!
3. I've already voted by absentee ballot for Florida, and I'm not paying attention to anymore political stuff. Soo over it.

John Paul and I are moving to DC this weekend! Tomorrow, to be exact. Oh my goodness, I am so ready to head up there.

The semi-annual update [Feb. 11th, 2008|06:31 pm]
original_moment
John Paul and I have herb babies! He's flexing his green thumb and has cilantro, basil, dill and another mystery herb (coriander?) growing on the porch next to the rosemary. It smells sooo good out there!
Two years down, a lot more to go with us. We drank fantastic wine and had an unbelievable meal to celebrate.
I officially have all of my grad school applications in and am having mini panic attacks because the rest of my life is in someone else's hands. The whole thing just makes me feel really nervous and anxious. Yes, those words mean the same thing, but you have to combine them to understand how stressed this whole thing really is.
The thing I am mostly looking forward to after graduating is Europe. JP and I are planning an 18-day lovefest with Spain, Switzerland, France and Italy in May and if anyone has tips or places we should visit, speak up. We need all the help we can get!
Life is good. No complaints here. Except I wish this stupid writer's strike had never happened because there will be no new episodes of Pushing Daisies until next season, which sucks.

[Current Music |Rogue Wave and Sugababes]

This school year is going to be a good one. Reasons:
JP and I have already gotten the whole sick thing out of the way early.
I am living in sin with the greatest roommate in the history of roommates.
Even though it's a lot of reading, my classes will be a good time and yoga is saweet.
I am finally old enough to go to bars and not totally waste my time.
Even though St. Augustine is missing some people from last year, there are some fun people I've met recently and I'm determined to actually make plans with them instead of just always saying I will.
There's already a show lined up in Oct. at HOB.
I'm working two jobs, but one is right across the street (literally) and the other I'm just working a couple shifts a week.

Can I be totally cheesy and gross everyone out? On one of our first nights here, John Paul set up his record player and we danced to Peter Frampton's "Baby I Love Your Way" because, yes, we are definitely THAT couple.

By the way, there is a guest room in the new place and it's open to almost anyone. We want visitors!

FYI [Jun. 28th, 2007|06:30 pm]

So, because I am an ubernerd, I went to the ALA (American Library Association) conference last week and had a total blast! In a couple of days, my mom and I:
met Julie Andrews (Sound of Music? Mary Poppins?)
took pictures with Garrison Keillor
heard Ken Burns speak (and saw clips of his new 14-hr documentary of World War II, which isn't out till Sept)
heard Judy Blume speak, and she was so darn cute!
got to see a sneak peek of the new Anne Hathaway film, Becoming Jane
attended the premiere of Hollywood Librarian, which was about, what else, librarians
met a ton of authors, got autographed copies of their books for free
heard Lois Lowry read live from The Giver.

Next up: move stuff into the new place on King Street on Saturday, go visit John Paul in Atlanta Sunday, back to real life next Friday.

This was not a good semester for couples.
Or lack thereof.

Not that anyone really reads this anymore... [May. 8th, 2007|11:09 am]

My landlord can seriously suck it.
Marie and Michelle are out of town, everyone's moved back home, and John Paul is in stupid Italy looking at stupid art. (I'm really just horribly jealous of him being in Rome, eating fresh mozzarella.)
On the upside, I'm working alot, Jordan and Jess are coming to visit me tonight until tomorrow, and I'm finding my domestic goddess side. I'm going to paint some furniture, try some new recipes, I sewed up some holes in my pillow, etc. Also, I did a Habitat for Humanity build in Jax last Saturday and had a really good time, got dirty, and a little tan. I only hit my thumb once with a hammer!
I ended up getting my only A in the class I was sure I was going to fail, and Bs in everything else.
I'm going home at the end of May until July, then will be moving into my apartment with my man in early August. Until then, I'm going to work at the library (again), this time at Hoke, where I'll be helping with all of the children's stuff because their children's person quit a while ago. Maybe I'll even do storytimes? Anyways, there will be some people in Martin County that I'm seriously missing and can't wait to see (ahem, Elg), and John Paul will get to come down and visit me all the time during June. Except when I'm going to the American Library Association conference for a week in June, where I'll see Julie Andrews, a premiere of a movie all about librarians in Hollywood, and Garrison Keillor, Khaled Hosseini (I just butchered his name), and a bunch of other great authors. I'm a dork, but I'm excited.
Okay. That's my summer. Should be good.

Dear Legs,
Stop hurting. You are not old, nor do I overwork you. I think you're just being whiny because you suck. If you do not stop killing me, I will have no choice but to chop you off like that crazy guy did in the book I just finished reading. Thank you.
