What are we talking about today?

I'll get back to theme days once I find a groove of posting regularly. In the meantime, most of my posts are about some variation of books, bikes, buses, or Broadway. Plus bits about writing, nonprofits, and grief from time to time.

This blog is mostly lighthearted and pretty silly. It's not about the terrible things happening in the world, but please know that I'm not ignoring those things. I just generally don't write about them here.

Another Quick Post....

... to let you know I haven't died, fallen into a huge hole, or suffered a debilitating accident to my fingers.

What I am doing is desperately trying to keep my head above water with my classes (perhaps taking 4 writing-based classes + 1 science class was a bad idea), in order to open up a bit of breathing space for myself.

Many, many welcomes to my new followers! I'm delighted to see you all and will be round to reciprocate very soon (tomorrow morning, if I can get tomorrow's homework done today!). Thanks for hanging in there while I'm experiencing two of my busiest weeks in recent memory (seriously-- it's a good thing I don't have children, because they would have forgotten what I look like).

I promise to give you a blow-by-blow account of race day (turns out that being a spectator is harder than it looks), my Crusader Challenge post (I'd be lying if I said I didn't have to consult a dictionary for the special words), and a snippet or two of the very inspiring and educational interview I had with a VP of the local bus company last week. Coolest conversation I've had with a stranger, ever.

ETA: Squirrel picture removed. Try Stock Xchng for free photos.

All the college students in my family are also lost to us. First things first for you though.
Good luck!

Good luck with your classes and everything else you're doing!

Great squirrel picture. :)

Su, I think everyone had to check the dictionary for those words. Looking forward to seeing your post! Good luck in class!

oh man I forgot what college was like. It was fun, but also a bit too hectic for me.

Su said...

@Mary: And here I swore it wouldn't happen to me. ;) Thanks!

@Eagle: I saw the picture on the stock photo site & was desperate to share it.

@JE: Well, if you had to check the dictionary, then it's all good.

@Charlie: Definitely fun, but certainly busier than I expected! If only I had the ability to pull regular all-nighters, I'd probably be okay.

Nice to meet you fellow Crusader! Great photo too.

Faith said...

I love squirrels. Like, I really love them. I'd keep one as a pet if I could, but apparently they make crappy pets... *pout*

Su said...

@Ann: Thanks! Nice to meet you, too.

@Faith. Me, too. I'll join you in pouting.

For future reference, taking 18 credit hours is also a bad idea.

Su said...

Been there, done that, not doing it again. Should not be attempted after your freshman year, not even to save $$. :/
