See you next year!

My most recent purchase is on the left. That darn Barbie is a paleontologist, just like me! I've wanted her for a while now and she was the perfect price right after Christmas.

So, as of December 15th I am now officially a paleontologist. Graduation went lovely and I had a very busy time in Wilmington. I was there for 10 days and hardly saw anyone as I was looking at shells for an upcoming paper I hope to co-author with my masters advisor.

Since I've been home I've been trying to get some things done in my house. I'd been wanting to remove the ugly "fruits and vegetables" wallpaper in my kitchen and I finally got it done on Christmas eve. Then I painted the living room and kitchen a really nice brown color called "Dust Bunny." Hopefully they call it that because the dust bunnies in my house will blend in and you won't be able to see them when I don't have a chance to clean...haha. I'll post some pictures later.

School starts back on January 9th and I haven't done a thing this break to study....except for my stuff in Wilmington. I guess I should do that sometime soon....

Hope all your wishes and dreams are fulfilled in the New Year. See you in 2008

Random thoughts...

School

Today was my geochemistry final. Although I'm sure I didn't do well on the exam, I think I did well enough to pass the class...especially as I have done all of the homework, all of the extra credit, and made a good mark on the first exam. Anyway...we'll see. Classes are now officially over for me for this semester...YAY!!

Isn't she adorable?

I went to Hobby Lobby this afternoon after my exam and saw this gorgeous girl sitting on a very high shelf begging to be brought home....and home she is. I think she is way, way too cute! Now, before you get any ideas...no, I don't collect cows and I don't want to collect cows. She just made me smile!

My mother is an enabler!

Sunday morning I'm sitting around in my jammies working and my mom calls. She tells me the chairs I've been stalking are at Target on sale. So what did I do? You're darn right! I got dressed as quick as can be and flew to Target and bought myself two of these lovely chairs. I am so excited!! Getting the huge couch out of the living room into the garage was quite a feat but did manage to accomplish it even if I did say a few curse words along the way.

Graduation

On Tuesday I'll be leaving Knoxville and heading back to Wilmington. On Saturday I will officially graduate with my Master's Degree in Geology!! Can you believe it?!?! It seems like ages ago when I started school and I never thought I'd be this far....but look at me now...working on my PhD! I'm looking forward to graduation. Richard will be there but William wasn't able to come into town. I'm selling him on ebay and listing him as "Bad Son"....haha (bidding starts at 99 cents).

Alright...off to eat my tortilla soup and not worry about homework I haven't done. Oh...and do a little scrapbooking baby!!!
