Doris art

An evening spent w/Doris

So tonight I was enjoying having Doris out and about more than what's become the norm these days.

I've missed her.

Have been thinking about possibly taking some photography classes this summer -- we'll see.

* D-groups drew to a close for this year as of tonight
* Also Doris and I went to Cesar's soccer game w/Leanna
* And we were goofing around in the dorm

...just thought I'd show a few pics from the evening.

Pieces of my weekend

Triple A...a wonderful company. I've seen a lot of them lately it seems. Month or so ago called them for Mariah -- her keys were locked in her car, maybe two weeks ago called them for Bailey -- his sister's keys were locked in her car, and today I had to call them for myself -- Britt thoughtfully locked my doors when she was done retrieving her purse...but she'd also left my keys in the floor board for me as well. Oh well. What else am I paying them for anyway?

Had a cookout w/my family and a few friends on Saturday night. My dad, the grill master, came through once again w/tasty goodness, and of course lots of stories. Mom was a gracious host, and came through for me w/some of her awesome (and warm) potato salad! Haven't had that in awhile. And my siblings were excited to see me and smothered me w/hugs and kisses -- Letha, more than the others, as par the norm. All in all it was fun and fulfilling.

Earlier Saturday morning I went to service my community service hours (for GBS not the state) at the Great America Cleanup -- Keep Cincinnati Beautiful! It was fun, but hot(ish) and dirty work. They provided breakfast, and lunch which was nice. Oh and we all got free shirts. I started w/a burnt orange colored long sleeve one, and then was given two more yellow short sleeve ones. *shrug* Never turn down free stuff...ok, maybe not never...

Here are a few pics from the clean up. You can see more of them on my facebook profile...










My awesome little bro.

I love this little guy so much. Took these pics on my phone while I was at home last nite. (He calls his mohawk mountain hair)

Science class fun...



So my thoughts -- Glasses should count as goggles.

Ah...my high tops. :)

Shout out to Ms. Charlotte

An evening w/friends

A few weeks ago I was w/a group of friends at the Mills house. The plan was to have as much fun as humanly possible...ok, that's not actually what they said when inviting me, but I'm pretty sure it was implied. Regardless of reason I feel that fun was had by all. I know speaking for myself that I rather enjoyed the evening, especially the whole "let's ride the four wheeler -- oops now we're muddy" part. Was also rather amused to see how persistent Charity and Beth were w/the whole mud thing.

Anyway, I just thought I'd give a shout out to the Mills -- thanks for the invite and the fun times! Here are some of the pics I got throughout the evening...enjoy!

A new chai

I was thinkin'...(hardeehar -- quit snickering!)

See, at this junction in life I'm approaching burnout, I can feel it. I've been dutifully working away on school work for almost three yrs. (interpret dutifully any way you'd like)and its all becoming blah. I'm loosing interest. I'm feeling listless -- lethargic -- lackadaisical.

Don't get me wrong. I haven't completely quit caring about everything.

I still very much care about my family and friends. I try to be a good daughter/sister/friend(don't always -- maybe even rarely -- succeed, but w/e). I enjoy hanging out, I enjoy being involved in my kids club(most days), and I even enjoy working...some. But I'm tired of classes. I just don't seem to care anymore.

I do care about my grades though, however I find myself squeezing the life out of my concern in order to nurture my disinterest.
My mind keeps yelling, "Why does it matter?!?" and "Why do you need this stuff?!?". I wish I could just push myself into being driven, but I'm lacking the drive...

Today I basked in the sunshine at a new coffee house. Mel suggested it, and the group agreed. Iris Bookcafe. Neat place. Quiet, friendly, artistic...I will be back. Thai pumpkin soup...and I got to try a soy chai at yet another place. Both were good. A very enjoyable afternoon. Fit my mood and lackadaisicalness.
