Current Mood:

And with my current mood mentioned, please be aware that I may be a tad more absent from blogging as I dive into my final five graduate school courses headfirst. No, no, not at all once. I have three nine-week semesters between now and then end of 2009. I’m taking two classes each for the next two semesters and then my final class October-December. If I’m not working, sleeping, eating, attempting to be a good girlfriend, friend, sister, daughter, dog-mother I’ll have my head stuffed in books and notes for awhile.

    I picked up the Secret Life of Bees as few weeks ago, its coming up on my list of books to read. Yay for graduate school — just think of how good it will feel to be finished! (Send me your new address when you move, please.)

    I just love your monthly recaps! I’m excited for you to start grad school, you will be a VERY busy bee though that’s for sure!!

    You’re moving home?? Did you blog about this and I missed it or is it old news!? Haha

    You will be missed in bloggy-world, but I’m so proud of you for finishing up school! I know from experience how hard it is to juggle everything, but I know you can do it!!!

    P.S. Ever tried the cappuchino slim fast? It’s really tasty!

    Hey Nora! Don’t apologise to us, grad school is important and it’s just a final push and you’ll be done, and be really happy about what you’ve achieved through hard work and determination! It’s a shame Irish reads your blog because I want to hear about the cool ideas you’ve thought for his present… you guys going to be doing anything special? xx

    do not worry about the being MIA for school. school is most important- you have to do well.

    I saw secret life of bees and it became an instant favorite! and frozen junior mints? I used to do that in high school, my parents always wondered what I was doing. :D

    and i sent you a msg on twitter, when caterpillar and I figure out plans for me coming to visit her in GA, which hopefully will be late august, early septemeber, we will let you know! I’d love to spend a weekend with the two of you <3

    Oh! Oh! What era of Paul Simon are you listening to? So good! =)

    Grad school is going to be a *huge adventure* I’m so excited for you!

    I read Dark Lover! It was pretty good. I think I like the Sookie Stackhouse books better, but it was a good vampire read…ha-ha I bought the first 5 in that set, but that’s the only one I have read so far.

    The final five classes?! That’s so awesome. MAJOR accomplishment. I hope yall have fun in Vegas!

    P.S. I am getting my hair dyed this weekend toooo! I saw you tweeted it, but the bosses were hovering so I couldn’t @reply back. Boo work!

    Have a good weeeeeekeeennndd!
