Some bits, because it's Friday and I am too tired to think up one coherant post

This week has had some ups and downs. Thankfully, it's Friday and I get to relax all weekend and not think about school. HAHAHA. Not really, I do have some work to accomplish this weekend. At least I will get some fireworks between days though.

I completed my committee meeting without any feeling of completely blowing it. In fact, I even got a positive comment from my most difficult committee member. She said something about the presentation being clear and well organized. This is the best compliment I have gotten on my thesis research and my work at grad school in general so far. Hmmm, I wonder why so many of us (and by us, I mean the people in my particular program) get a little more than burned out and dissatisfied? Yah, I don't know either.

Is it just me, or does Jillian, from The Bachelorette, look a little more than tipsy every time she does her little date recaps at the end of the night?

Just yesterday I sat down at my computer and had a moment of total self-pity thinking that no one was reading. Traffic has tapered off, rather than picked up. Just as I was about to give myself another pep talk I got a comment on my cookie post. It was my first real comment from someone I didn't know. I was probably more excited than one person should be. I was also excited because by her leaving a comment, I found her blog, and it's great.
Go take a peak.

Also, I have been reading a book called "My So-called Freelance Life." I have to admit that I have been more than entertaining the idea of becoming a freelance writer. I have lots of ideas of things to write. I also know that I need like, a back-up. One of which is to be my own little environmental consulting firm. I actually have experience in this field, which is more than I can say about freelance writing. Either way Michelle Goodman's book is a very helpful how-to guide to setting up shop for yourself. This is not my reason, for rambling about it though. My point is that I wrote to her on her
website, even though I still feel like a stalker when I leave comments. And she wrote back! She was very nice and invited me to attend an event for freelancers in my area. I feel like this is the start of something. And I am excited. More excited about a future potential career than I have been in a long time.

I applied for a teaching assistant position at school for the fall. I found out this week that I got the position and I am elated. I really like teaching, at least I think I do, and am looking forward to doing it again. I have to admit though, I am also excited because I think it might make for some good blog posts.

I plan to cook up something yummy for the fourth tomorrow so hopefully, the next post will be, you know, like, not lame.

Hey there -- I wanted to tell you that I read your blog pretty religiously now! I think you know it, but wanted to make sure I was on record. :) Sometimes I get behind a bit but that's nice too cuz then I can settle down with coffee and catch up. And congrats on the comment - how exciting!
