Today it's my birthday!

Hello everyone! Today was a pretty good day. Just doing the class thing. :) I finally met with Charli, the new first year experience person (in charge of the PAs), and it looks like the internship will work out. My main responsibilities will be to get together the Contact Sheets from the PAs and put together a newsletter for the freshman parents (it's an e-newsletter). So we'll see how it goes. If it gets to be too much, i'll probably step down. But Charli is aware of my other commitments and is willing to work with me. So all is well with that. Classes don't look extremely difficult, which is good. It should be a good semester. A good balance between challenging and not so challenging. Well, that's my mini update for the time being... I have some Greek to study!

More pictures for you viewing pleasure!

We stained some boards and made some shelves for our bathroom and put them up. :0)

We also got a big wall clock for the dining area. It was on sale for 15 dollars at Kohls. I like it a lot.

And we got a table finally! It came today and Brad got it all put together. It was even done in time for Dinner. It's smaller than I thought it would be, but it's ok. Any bigger and I think it would be cramped. We just have to eat Buffet style when we have company.

Today was also the first day of classes. Everything seems to be going well for the most part. I don't have many of my books yet, which is a little annoying because I do have reading I should be doing. It was especially annoying because for Western Civ, I borrowed the book because its really expensive and I didn't want to pay for it... So I got to class, and he TOTALLY CHANGED THE BOOK. And it's a brand new, just published I can't even find it used online. But I did find it for significantly cheaper than the book store had it. I also found out that our apartment is pretty far from everything... My feet/legs are a little sore. At least I know I won't get fat!! Haha.

Just For Grandpa

There's the TV. We don't have much, but we do have a really huge TV!!! :0)


Hey all! I decided to take up my blogging again. I figured this would be the best way to communicate instead of sending out mass emails. This way you get to choose whether or not you want to hear about my life. ;-)

Anyway, I thought I would start off this blog season by posting some "Before" pictures of our apartment. "After" pictures will come after we get things done... hopefully sometime today or tomorrow. But Rome wasn't built in a day, and neither will our apartment be organized and ready for presentation in a day. ;-) Enjoy!
