I didn't actually forget that I had one, I just didn't remember that I could update it. Or something. I hang out at twitter more, I suppose? Or off the computer?

Gee whiz, where was I the last time I wrote in this thing? Apparently the 1950s I'm saying things like gee whiz. Well, here I am now:

I work a retail job that I like and loathe at the same time, like the person in the LJ community for IUP who warned me not to major in Comm Media did. I wonder where he/she is now? Well, I have a job. I'm 2/3 the way through a paralegal studies program that I love at a local college so better job prospects abound, potentially even law school some day. I did have a dream last night that I turned in my final memo and included the phrase "lmao" in it. I wonder what my subconscious is trying to tell me? :D

I'm in an improv comedy group with awesome people. This weekend I'm meeting up with my BFF from college at her sister's house in Fredericksberg, VA. We're doing a 5k. I'm pretty pumped about that. My goal is to do a 10k by my birthday. Maybe the BFF will join me too.

So, things are are good, really. I'm pretty happy. Now that my semester has ended I can really put in that elbow grease to find a better job and an apartment and all that grown up stuff.

Sidebar: My sister and her husband are in the process of buying a new house in the neighborhood where my high school boyfriend lives. Come on everyone, say it with me, Ah, SMALLTIMORE!

EDIT: I just clicked my 12 of 12 tag just for fun. I only did it a handful times, mostly in college. It's funny how many of things I took pictures of are buildings and such that aren't there anymore. Ah, unniverse!

30 Day meme day 2

# Day 02: Something you regret not having done last year.

Last year I lived in Los Angeles and now that I'm back home there are so many things I wish I had done while I was there! I wish I had left the city more. I wish I had seen San Diego. I wish I had gone to Santa Barbara and I wish had stopped working for Jannu sooner. I wish I had started going to the UCB earlier in my time there. I wish I had gone to see shows at the New Beverly and other such places.

I think San Diego is the biggest thing.

A 30 day meme -

I've decided to try and do the 30 meme that Beth is doing on her blog. I'm calling it "a" 30 day meme instead the 30 day meme because there are several different 30 day memes going around. If I'm feeling inspired I might do more than one day some days. It's not cheating because it will frankly be a miracle if I actually blog 30 consecutive days without missing any anyway.

SO!

Day 1 Day 01: Something you're looking forward to this year.


I'm looking forward to learning to play the guitar. I've wanted to learn since I was a teenager but it never happened. I have a guitar and have promised myself lessons. Hopefully sooner than later I'll start them.

I'm looking forward to reconnecting with people and being proactive about meeting new people. I'm looking forward to the year in general, it's feeling like its going to be a good one.

Holly I want to get this for you!!

I realized that I started counting every time I looked at my friends list as updating my journal but that's questionable logic at best. I was seriously surprised to see that I hadn't written an entry since November. Seesh.

The holiday season was good; I saw a lot of old friends and family members. I even had an uncharacteristically good New Year. For some reason I seem to associate horrid drama with New Year's eve (yes, Ted From How I Met Your Mother got that one right) though I don't remember any especially traumatic New Years, I'm a weird one like that.

Still working at the boring, unexciting retail store; sort of kicking myself for how well I fit in there. Everyone is pretty nice. The head HR woman is a rad lady named Pam who looks and sounds like Pam from the office. I probably enjoy that too much. Whenever I run into someone I know at work I get all stupidly self-conscious. I've run into two teachers from Towson High so far while at work, the second of which was Ms. Waters a history teacher. When I realized who she was I immediately blurted out "I graduated from College. I"m gonna go to law school!" That was not one of my finest moments. She was very cool about it though and just asked about which law schools I was considering. When asked about how Towson High was going she said as always it was some place between a symbol of excellence and a symbol of excrement. Ha, what a cool lady.

So yeah, I've finally made a concrete decision about my future. I'm working towards going to Law School. The LSATS are in the beginning of the summer. I should probably make contact with some undergrad professors for references, but that's not at the very top of my list right now. I think I'm gonna make a pretty great lawyer though, I'm even excited about the possibility. This was always sort of my plan B anyway.

Of course as soon as I've made this choice the news about Julia Louis-Dreyfuss's new sitcom being potentially produced in Baltimore comes. Life, you're darn funny.

Hey, it's snowing.

Waah.

So, I've got an in-between job right now, and they're paying me more than the other two girls they hired at the time same time for my experience. I can live with this for a little while, while I turn myself into a real adult and start achieving things and figuring what to do with my life.

I read an article that said spending all your time job searching is sort of a necessary evil but it doesn't really better anyone so it's good to take half or a portion of the time you'd spend job hunting and use to work on a project that actually helps people. This made some sense to me so I tried to think of something that helps people - that solves a need. There have some really cool ideas like that. I immediately thought of the Ronald McDonald House and then The Book Thing and man what cool ideas. I'm sure the article wasn't suggestion things on that scale necessarily but I began to think anyway and came up with some silly ideas and some OK ideas.

- A feral cat sanctuary for all the feral cats that live at Pimlico that they euthanize every year.

- A place using the same idea as the book thing but instead collects donations of baby items and toys that your children have outgrown

- A place that provides free daycare for people who can't afford it. (No, I don't know how this would work)

- A place that provides free cheese and crackers to people who want to have parties but can't afford snacks (this is when I started getting silly)


And then I looked at a Post Secret book so to see what kind of problems might be solved there but most of those people really just need a therapist.

I need to figure out what to do with my life. STAT.

Only one person who asked me for a color has done the color meme. You guys are lame, but I love you anyway.

Does anyone have experience with swaptree/swap.com or bookmooch or anything like that? If so, how did it go?


Also:


Other than Shiny Happy Monsters with REM, this is my favorite Sesame Street clip! :-D

Color Meme

Comment and I'll give you a color that I think represents you, and then you list ten things that you like in that color. (You *can* comment without getting a color; if you don't want one just say so.) Also, you don't have to list pictures but I thought it would be fun and Kat did it, so there it is.

katje0711 Gave me black.

I'm not sure what it says that black represents me but okay!Collapse )
