My SJC Blog

Guess what! I'm like, totally "official" now! I've started blogging for the college I work you can catch more snippets of my life here. I have a fancy schmancy (airbrushed?) photo too. Coolio!

Listening: Really junky E television "news"
Eating: Nada
Drinking: Apple cider--totally into it--IT'S FALL!!!
Wearing: PJ's! And a goofy headband with my hair all rolled up so it's curly in the morning--I get my picture taken for my SJC blog tomorrow (which means I need to head to bed soon to get my beauty rest!
Feeling: Fairly content
Weather: Perfect. I love the evenings.
Wanting: An adventure. Preferably involving a famous person (Let me follow up with this post by stating where this comes from. Today at lunch my coworker was telling us all the cool stories that he had had involving famous people. I would like something of this nature to happen to me)
Needing: TO GO TO BED!
Thinking: I wish I didn't need to sleep
Enjoying: Life and the anticipation of new things on the horizon
Thankful: for my amazing co-worker Tai! She is just too good to me! She continually teaches me new things, inspires me, and I hope I am as good to her as she is to me.

So I came across this little gem on, the little devil that I have fallen in love with and takes up all of my spare time (that and "Words With Friends"--totally worth buying the ipad to play it). Anyways, I came across this as a form of "quick journaling." I kind of like it--it's a little snap shot of the day, is easy to do, so I might do it every once in awhile for funnsies. So here:

Listening: "Friends" on Nick at Nite." It makes me nervous that this show is now old enough to be considered a "classic"
Eating: Nothing. But earlier today I ate the most delicious apple I have ever had IN MY LIFE that I picked from the orchard yesterday. If this apple was anything like the one Snow White ate, I can see why she bit it.
Drinking: Tea.
Wearing: Jammies
Feeling: T-i-r-e-d but content. Grateful for a wonderful day at the outlets with my friend Beth, and a wonderful RA staff
Weather: Humid--blargh
Wanting: It to be fall.
Needing: to not procrastinate
Thinking: "Oh well"--in relation to the procrastination
Enjoying: "Friends" (see above)

Some various pictures from my summer I haven't had time to post!

First stop: Macrina as always!
B and I at Greenlake!
Picnic dinner in the park! (yes, that is beer in that mug)

There's really just nothing like it
Nope, never gets old!

RA's 11-12!!!
Fire Safety Training!!!

Chappy Takes Cleveland!

Our RA staff is one big happy family. And that big happy family has a pet camel named Chappy. Every week during our staff meeting, we pass around Chappy the Camel and you share your happiest and crappiest moment with the group (get how Chappy got his name? put them together...). The person with the happiest (or crappiest) moment of the week gets to take Chappy home for the week, where he spreads joy and cheer to all whom he encounters. Chappy is also a world-wide (well, intercontinental United States) traveler. He has seen the space needle in Seattle, he has been to the glorious city of Chicago, the wilds of New Hampshire, and during Labor Day weekend he got to visit Cleveland (because it rocks!) when I went to celebrate with my family for my brother Matt's graduation (woo!) and my grandpa's 80th birthday (get it Grandpa!). Below are some of Chappy's adventures:

Chappy lounges at the lake house on Johnson Island
Chappy drinks a delicious cup of joe
Chappy meets Brutus the dog. Friend or Foe? You decide. But mostly likely foe.
Chappy congratulates Matt on his degree, officially being an "educated man" and on paying off his loans for the next ten years. Yeah!
