Smupdate…er…Update!

Been pretty busy these past few days, so forgive me for my delinquency.

Well I’ve been working a ton, applying a bunch, and HURRAY HURRAY I have a job interview on the 28th.  However I’ve also applied for another position and I realllly want that one, so we’ll see what happens.

My birthday is steadily approaching, only 4 more days (This friday, the 24th, my Golden Birthday!)  As I like it, I have been receiving my presents well in advance of the actual day 🙂 That way I don’t have pleasure overload ;-).  So far the awesome presents I have recieved are: Matthew – new Desk, docking station, and my brick 🙂   Helen – Some awesome new ecco shoes!!!  They are sooo sweeeet! I need them for the job interview next week so I’m breaking them in.  I’ll take a pic later this week and upload it – yes they are that sweet.

Speaking of birthdays, I am going to be having a dinner at Iron Chef Hibachi Grill Friday night – I think only 6 people can go (not including Matthew and myself) so first come first serve.  However, we’ll be having games and what not at the house afterwards and all can come for that.  But if you want to wait till the official party, Sept 1st, which is also a Graduation and labor day party, you may – I won’t cry…much 😛 Email me for info – k?thx.

On to other things that are awesome – we are finally getting a water softener!  YIPPEEEEE!!! Hard water NO MORE! and a reverse osmosis machine for our drinking water – yeah you could pee in it and have pristine clean drinking water! I’m very excited about that! I’ll be selling bottles of water for a quarter!  lol, j/k – but seriously, we don’t have them YET, we’re still waiting for the company who installs them to call us.  If we don’t hear anything tomorrow I am calling and requiring they install it for free – yes you just watch me pull that off!

And onto other things –  I’ve been reading a few books (who knew with free time what was possible!) one of the books that I am reading is “Happier” by Tal Ben-Shahar – I am enjoying it immensely!  But it’s a slow process b/c it requires you to do a little homework, which I have to admit I enjoy.   The other book I’m reading is “The Deadline” by Chris Crutcher  – a YA book that is really good!

Otherwise that has been my life – I’ve been hanging out with a co-worker and that’s been fun and interesting – Matthew and I are trying to make friends up by us since it seems like no one wants to travel to visit us.  Regardless, we’ve had a pretty good time :-).  Alright, that’s it for now – Have a good one!

Peaceful Ahhhhhhhh

Breathe in….Breath out….Peace overflows you…

Yep that’s how I feel right now, I just finished my last class assignment for my summer classes, which means I’m finished with Grad School! I’m excited but also nervous to see how I did in the classes…so I’m holding my breathe until July 25th, when the grades have to be in.

Until then I’ll have my Harry Potter 🙂 Which I’m going to go get in about 1 hour 😀 I’ve never done the midnight release thing so it should be interesting.

UPDATE: I have my book and read it in 11 hours and 45 mins….One child from my school guessed that I could read it in 12 hours….so he gets a candy bar.  The midnight release was fun but I really dislike people who talk…err should i say Broadcast, the spoilers to people who have no choice but to listen.  It’s rude and inconsiderat and those people should be shot at with paintball guns.

But back to this whole school thing, or rather the lack thereof…

I have mixed emotions about it all. I’m very happy and exuberant that I’m finally finished, but I feel a little lonely, b/c I know I’ll have to take control of my free time. It’s not even that I’ll have to get a “real job” and “work” – that doesn’t bother me b/c I’ve done it the entire time I have been in school, undergrad and graduate. Yeah sometimes I took a few weeks off to get stuff done, but more or less I’ve worked my butt off to get thru school in 2.5 years (when it normally takes 2 years). So you could say that I’m proud of myself….b/c I deserve to be.

The other thing that worries me not being able to relax, always thinking something is due, or that I should be doing something else besides “having fun.” It will definitely be a transition. I’m still considering selling Creative Memories stuff, but not until I’ve gotten a “real” job and know what my hours are like, and after I’ve had some time to re-arrange the house some. Probably not until after Labor day, at the very least.

And now I’m trying to find a job…it’s kinda exciting being able to say, “Yes I’m a LIBRARIAN” and not have to sell myself “Yes, I am a MLIS student but I’m determined to work in libraries…” while it’s worked for me in the past, it’s not always fun and games. I have applied for one position and I’m actually excited about it – so I really hope I get an interview. Otherwise I’m still looking.

So there is this looooonnngggggg list of things “To-Do AFTER school is over…forever…” – allow me to expand:

  • Post-it note: When I have a life – Google Criss Angel (from Tara)
  • Call Rival about our seal a meal (on refrig)
  • Spend time with Matthew
  • Change my bills to different times of the month
  • Redo the guest room (move desk in, reorganize craft stuff, etc…)
  • Do some crochet projects
  • Do some scrapbooking (esp on my mom’s! Yikes!)
  • Throw away all the school stuff I don’t need
  • Reorganize my filing cabinents
  • Read the mound of books that I want to read
  • Reformat my computer
  • Play Wii..specifically Super Paper Mario
  • Have a few parties
  • See my friends
  • Go on a vacation
  • Sleep in

And I think that’s all…I definitely have many things I want to do, but we’ll see if it happens.  Okay time to shower and get ready to face the day.

Harry Potter and School

Sooo I thought that I would write a blog about the new Harry Potter book coming out on July 21st. I do have mine on pre-order, so no worries my pretties. But I thought that I would write about what I thought was going to happen but as I thought about it I realized that I hate trying to predict what may happen…I don’t even want to think about whether or nor Harry, Ron, or Hermoine die….I don’t want to think that could happen, even if it does – I won’t be the one jinxing it. Sooo I really don’t know what is going to happen, other then Harry kicking Lord Voldemort’s butt. That’s about it. I can’t wait for it to come out – depending on what time I finish my class stuff I’ll get my book either July 20th at Midnight or the following Saturday…but I have to brave the crowds to do it :-/ We shall see.

My parents have been up here for the past few days. They bought us a sweet grill as a house warming gift and then helped us put in a patio outside! It’s sweet! And my mom planted flowers for me..so hopefully something will grow :-< I have to say that my house is looking pretty awesome. Oh and my mom has been cleaning my kitchen 🙂 that makes me very happy. And they REALLY like our house and that makes me feel really good. I kinda wish that they lived closer to us 😦 I know my mom wants to but my dad can’t do it. Maybe in the future.

Oh and I have like 15 days until I’m done with school for GOOD! But I have a few things to get done….they are:

  • Treasure Hunt Questions – 7/15
  • Info Sources Paper – 7/16
  • Discussion Board Questions (Lead Discussion) 7/15
  • Disc. Board activity (Info Sources) – currently till the end
  • Disc Board questions for Coll Dev. – 7/10 & 7/20
  • Coll Dev Final Paper – 7/20
  • Adult Services Disc. Board Participation (3 x’s each week!!!)
  • Adult Services Final Paper: Due Tuesday of Week 10 (7/16).

Sooo that’s about it – once I get this stuff done I’m done forever!!! Woooohoooo but I need to crack down and get my butt in gear. Seriously sooo much to do! These huge projects (one in each class) are going to take a lot of energy.

Oh and I applied for a job today – so I’m hoping next week I’ll be hearing something! Keep you’re fingers crossed!

Alright sooo that’s it for a few days – TTYL!

Books?

Okay so here is my LT with all the books I collected at ALA2007 Conference. I have 3/6 others that I could not add because they are just a few chapters from each book (2 books in 1) but I do have them. Titles are: “Dancing with Werewolves” by Carole Nelson Douglas; “Chasing Silver” by Jamie Craig (both in one book); “The Secret History of Moscow” by Ekaterina Sedia; “The Spider’s Bride” by Debbie Gallagher (both in one book); and lastly, “Blood Magic” by Matthew Cook; and “Amberlight” by Sylvia Kelso (both in one book). If anyone is interested in those let me know.

Here is the list of books I’m willing to part ways with or loan. Also check out this list of signed books that I have from the conference. There were also a few other books that I either 1) gave away or 2) have been snaked by Matthew to the depths of his lair….I mean computer room. So once those are up there, you’ll be able to see them.

I do plan to type up a journal about my trip to ALA but give me a bit and I’ll get it. I need to get my resume together and send it off tomorrow and then work on homework so that I can graduate soon. Soon….very soon….I’ll be able to update regularly.

Oh and I asked MySpace for help with the transferring of my blogs from their to here….we’ll see if it happens, but I’m not going to hold my breathe.

Alright, gotta go to sleep, my eyelids keep falling. Night all! Let me know if anyone wants some books!
Peace, Anna

Oh and I’ll elaborate on this later – but go read “The Time Travelers Wife” by Audrey N. an EXCELLENT book and I loved listening to it on the trip to and fro DC. Go…get it NOW!

Must….blog….

Current mood: stressed
Category: unmotivated LifeOkay I gotta blog – I know I said I wouldn’t return until July 20th but I’m just sooooo overwhelmed with everything I need to just spew for a bit and then i’ll be feeling a whole lot better.

So lets see – This past weekend we had Amanda’s Bacheloretter party! It was a good time, though a small group, but fun none-the-less. Cyndi gave us excellent massages! Then we played some games, and finally we had a pure romance party. It was a good time! Oh and we played some Wii 😀

I also found a Bassett Dresser for $30 at a yard sale this weekend! Score!!

Matthew and I saw Knocked Up last night too and it was GREAT! I really enjoyed it! Plus I had heard an interview with the director and Seth ____ on NPR right before hand and it just made me appreciate the movie even more. Really really really excellent – go see it!

Right now I’m trying to survive school. I have a paper due tomorrow that I’m working on (), a posting due tomorrow for the same class (), An assignment due the 10th but technically due the 7th (), Comps next week (), all along with Amanda’s wedding the 16th, Rick visiting the 17th, our one year anniversary this Saturday, and trying to get ready for ALA the 22nd. ugh ugh ugh! I’m definitely getting stressed – plus my computer has been having some serious fits of retalliation – I know I need to reformat it but I just don’t have the time to back up all the information. And folks, this is just the tip of the iceberg. Seriously – right now I just want to sleep…I have tears in my eyes from how much i want to sleep. Not cool, not cool at all 😦

But at least it’s raining some here!

Oh and you all have any ideas for what to do on the one year anniversary please let me know! I just don’t have a clue! Send any suggestions my way please!!

Thanks – much love – keep me in your thoughts and prayers please!

Current mood: sleepy
Category: Life

Just an update, No I’m not dead, Yes I’m damn near trying to kill myself and yes I am a little crazy.

Really, it’s all just school and work.

School takes up 85% of my time, SERIOUSLY.

Work 10%

Sleep/Matthew/Other 5%

So This is my way of apologizing in advance for the next 9 weeks of no Banannas.  I think you’ll survive with out me.  Thank God I don’t have any shows to watch right now…I’d really be up shits creek without a paddle!

Okay time to go read homework.
Peace, Anna
