...and this is a surprisingly pertinent offer. Sort of.
In exactly one month and two days, I will be on a series of planes heading towards Nairobi, Kenya, where I will be studying at the University of Nairobi for six months (!!!) (I am so unbelievably stoked).
The Center for International Programming at Kalamazoo selected me to be one ...
A week and a half ago or so, there was an online sale at Office Depot wherein you could order 1000 full-color raised print business cards for under $4.00, including shipping. I jumped at the chance, and today, received them in the mail.
I've been passing them out all day, to friends and strangers alike (I've gone through about 75 ...
So you get a lot of flack.
I don't really understand it.
Okay, that's a lie. I kind of do. I'm guilty of talking about you in less-than-pristine terms. I'm guilty of making jokes about the stereotypes that, unfortunately, some people still take seriously. I'm guilty of cross-applying some of your more underdeveloped ...
Warning: the following post is rather disjointed and not that easy of a read. I apologize.

distinguishing sentences being: I'm not that familiar with two deaths and a coma all hitting me in the same ...

So yesterday I watched the last twenty minutes or so of Shawn of the Dead. Today, I watched a bit of the remake ...
Thanks, GMail. Got one. It includes my entire collection of Redwall books (2.25 down; 12.75 to go. I don't own the latest four, and I haven't read any of them since 2003. Been long enough!), The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz (Summer Common Reading book for K), and, um. Everything else in my path.
So. Hello, it has been awhile! Last time I posted, I was panicking about college. Now, I'm, well. I'm still panicking about college, but in a different way!
Since my last post, I have done the following:Finished highschool (*\o/*)Didn't take any finals :)
Graduated (as Amy's last post sort of illustrates!)
Gone to ...
Observation: It's really quite weird when people you know from entirely different situations end up friends. Por ejemplo: Last night, I found out that one of my good friends from elementary/middle school (small, Montessori) and a friend of mine from a Mother-Daughter Book Club that happened from about second grade to -- not quite sure when, ...
-- Went to a costume party at a friend's house last night. I was Cher. :-" Potentially there will be pictures soon.
