Strange days

Such a strange strange month it's been. Don't you think? Or is it just me? It has been so tumultuous, full of goodbyes and hellos and big changes.

Aren't graduations fun? I love 'em. I didn't get to attend any this spring but I know plenty of people who did. I miss that ebb and flow of a school year. How September is the new beginning rather than January. New outfits, freshly sharpened pencils, go pick out a new Trapper Keeper with kittens on the cover. Vacation at the holidays, then back to school. Spring Break. Tests. And the end rolls around in May. School's out for summer (for ever).

Students follow this schedule. TV sorta does too. I wish I did sometimes. I wish summer had that lightness to it like it did when I was young. So I'm changing direction a bit. Trying something new. Leaving magazines for the time being and going back to that school environment. I hope I like it. And I hope this means I'll have more time for my blog, and keeping everyone up to date on the latest polar bear news and etsy favorites and all that nonsense. You'd like that, wouldn't you?

So give me a couple more weeks and I'll soon have my business sorted out. Fingers crossed.

By the way, did you know that there is this crazy abandoned mini-golf in a spaceship business right alongside I-35E just south of Dallas? It's at the exit for Italy, and it is superfun to take pictures inside of. Case in point.

I completely agree. I love dividing the year among semesters and summer. I guess that's a big part of why 1) I stayed in school for so long and 2) I wound up becoming a teacher.

I'm guessing you're going back to school? Grad school? Where? What will you study? In my experience, grad school was better than undergrad (academically, at least, UHCL can never top A&M socially) because with a few minor exceptions, I took exactly what I wanted to take and truly enjoyed what I was studying. As a result, I made FAR better grades.

Good luck!

Honestly this is the cutest photo!!! I love it. Should be your profile pic -- it just screams fun! Happy summer and hoping this year's is a bit lighter for you. You deserve it!

I love the truck stop (or whatever you call it) by the space ship thing. The bath rooms are always clean and they have good snax.

I don't have your email so I'll answer your house question here....the selling process continues (to be a pain in my ass) and I probably won't buy in NC for at least another year because I'm still going to be broke and in debt when this is all over.

But I really like it here (however, I miss Whataburger, Freebirds, Rudy's and Central Market something fierce).
