Easter, Passover and so on. Have some peeps on me! These virtual peeps are even calorie free, so you can eat the whole football team and fans!
So I’m back in Maryland for the next week and some change. School and work have sucked up a lot of my time, so this week off is going to be great. Dr. Mojo is also going to be in town, so we’re doing some shopping for her wedding, a caterer tasting and a celebration for Mama Mojo’s birthday. And some just plain old fun hanging out. Missed that girl.
Did I mention that I’ve been enjoying sunny 80-degree weather in Louisiana this spring? It’s wonderfully warm there. Coming to Maryland in April has been a shock. It’s prettier than the south (sorry, y’all), but cooooooold! I’m walking around the house in a jacket. My parents think I’ve lost it.
What I’ve been doing in school:
1. Building a webpage with my group for the St Amant High School library. I’ll throw a link up when we have the finished product. It’s looking great. After break I have to start working on the final reports, but so far, we’re way ahead of schedule.
2. Starting projects for my System’s Analysis class, in which we do something crazy, like analyze a system. Sounds like…not a lot of fun, actually.
3. Procrastinating on studying for finals, which are coming up in about a month. I’ll be starting that up soon as I get back from break.
Other things in life:
Back on meds (crud) and seeing new doctors in Louisiana. Am also apartment hunting, and with luck, I may have a new, quiet roommate, or a single place all to myself. I’m also getting a bike soon, if there’s money left over from my job and paying for wedding jewelry and the venue for the shower I’m planning for Dr. Mojo and Mr. Mojo’s fest. Because I am SO out of shape from my stay in the hospital.
Did I mention that? I was in for about a week a month and a half ago. Healing up well as can be expected, and managing fine.
23 read so far, 37 to go.
I’ve recently read (or am reading):
The Help by Kathryn Stockett
The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster (Pi’s suggestion)
Interview with a Vampire by Anne Rice (Again)
Warchild by Karin Lowachee
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte (Pheonix said this book isn’t supposed to be funny, but I don’t believe him)
The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum (Again)
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (Yes, I’ve hopped on that crazy train, but the movie was darn good)
Eight Lectures on Theoretical Physics by Max Planck
The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot
Abandon by Meg Cabot (Which I highly recommend to anyone who loved Greek myths as a kid, and which is going to have a sequel come out this month)
The Letters of Vincent van Gogh
The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman (Which was excellent, and something else I highly recommend to YA readers)
The Disappearing Spoon by Max Kean (Which I’m leaving unfinished. It’s a little dry, but a very interesting history of the periodic table, if you’re into that sort of thing)
The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett (Again)
The Antichrist by Friedrich Nietzsche (Again, for laughs, though Elly tells me this isn’t supposed to be a funny book either)
Suppose that’s all for now. Have a picture of the awesome cherry tree by our house! This is why I love Maryland!
