After the whirlwind that was the past four months, I'm finding myself having a difficult time knowing where to start again on this blog.  I could finish the India journal entries.  I could explore all the interesting fiber art related things I've been doing.  I could write about some of the hilarious things that have happened to me in my attempts at dating and navigating life... but I'm just not feeling any of  that right now.  I'm mentally and physically drained.  I feel that I should restart this blogging habit since I've finished my semester and have time, but the thoughts/ideas seem stuck.  I know they're there... and have been nagging me, yet they appear to have accepted their lot and don't want to budge due to prolonged occupation of my mental back burner.  

I suppose I will attempt to reboot, restart, and do some reorganizing.  

Stay tuned... I will be back, just another slight delay.

On a side note:  I hope this Holiday finds you safe, warm and surrounded by loved ones.  I'm looking forward to the band new shiny year and all the adventures it has in store.

growing pains

I've been thinking about a lot of things today.  Mostly due to finally having a moment or two to myself for reflection and inspection.  This has been one hell of a semester for me.  I took too many credit hours, only to find that I'd have to wait/work until August 8th to graduate.  A blessing and curse in disguise.  I now have three additional months to figure out what the heck I'm going to do post-graduation.  

On a whole though, 2008 seemed to have been a year of growth and change for me.  Interesting that I used the word "change"...  the Obamamania has penetrated my subconscious.  As I look back in my journal from the previous year I can see how I've grown to become more comfortable in my own skin, in my relationships with friends and colleagues, and with the world around me.  Some of the growing pains which accompanied much of the year's transformation are now humorous and sweet.

my little helper

 So my life has been a bit hectic lately.  School has just gotten in my way and made me a bit crazy.  But never fear, I will be done in a week or so and posting again.  I've learned to spin yarn and can't wait to share it!  Until then, here's a picture of birdface getting caught drinking my coffee while I was writing a paper.  Just what he needs, more energy.
