First, school related. My classes for the semester finished well, and though I thought that I had given a solid performance on all of my finals, I was ready to accept the worst possibility - Two As, an A/B, a B, and a B/C (leaning towards lower grades for borderlines). But, as it turns out, I ended up with THREE As and two Bs! BOOYA! Take that, Physics classes! Now all I have to do is go to my History teacher and pick up my 20+ page paper on the history of antibiotics, and I can call this semester closed.
Second, summer related. This can be further subdivided: school vs. not-school. As much as I would LOVE to spend this summer dividing my time between working and goofing off, it's not to be. If I'm going to graduate next year, and head off to post-baccalaureate studies, I need to take these classes, of which there are 3: WWII - History; Technical Writing - English; Multivariate Calculus - Math. The bad news is that I will have to spend a buttload of time in the library studying for these classes until they're over. The good news is that said classes are all over by August, so I should be able to swing some time to come back out here (CT) for a week (or maybe even two.. ^_^) before the fall semester starts up.
Now for not-school related stuff. I'll be watching my parents house for two weeks in July (family going to UK for HS Band trip... lucky devils), as well as playing with the Lafayette Citizens Band on a few occasions (three such occasions being the season opening and closing concerts, plus a spot in the coveted July 4th gig... *grin*). What else? I'll keep working @ University Inn in order to make money. Although I am conflicted about staying... though I'm finally getting a chance to do what I've always dreamed of doing, plus a raise, most of the crew that I worked with since the beginning is leaving, and a few of my new coworkers aren't exactly proving very friendly (through no fault of mine... one hates me 'cause I yelled at him, but I only did so 'cause he was the first noob [< 3 months service] to have the misfortune of walking across my path).
Alright, now to love related. The Four Horsemen (my private nickname for my parents plus Alex & Kevin) decided that since I finished the semester so well, I should go get to see Joanna (aka theorygirl
) for a few days before summer classes picked up (May 14th). So, here I am @ her home in CT. Unfortunately, it came @ the last minute, so she wasn't able to request off for work, so we've really only got a couple of days to spend together (aside from the nighttime). One day was yesterday, which we spent in fabulous NYC. We went to go see the musical Curtains (w/David Hyde Pierce of Frasier fame) at the Hirschfeld Theater (named after the New Yorker cartoonist). It was pretty good - give it a little time, and it should win a few awards at the Tonys. We also went to a Japanese bookstore, where I picked up two CDs, as well as check out the New York Public Library (probably the most heavily secured library I've ever seen - I've seen Wal-Marts with less security). The other day will be Saturday, where Joanna will take me to Lake Compounce (the amusement park @ which she's worked for who know how many summers). Coincidentally, that's the day I leave - I'll arrive back in IN @ about midnight.
It's such a shame that we can only see each other every two or three months - granted, it's better than seeing each other only for Thanksgiving and Christmas/New Years, but it still lacks something. I'm actually glad that we'll be getting married in about a year - it means we'll no longer have to live on such an existence. But, even if it is only for a brief moment, I will cherish the time that I have here, at the side of the one I love. (FYI, my userpic is one of the anime couples I support... Yuunoha all the way!)
That's all for now. So, until next time, keep on following... as close you can.
Okay, so it's only been 1 month, but I have a lot of ground to cover right now. First order of business is to break everything that I have to cover into categories: school-related, summer-related, love-related, and everything else.
