Star Trek vs. Star Wars Hockey Night...

Went to the Knoxville Ice Bears hockey game a couple of weeks ago and sat on the ice. Let me tell you, there is nothing like sitting on the ice and having the opportunity to bang on the glass and be RIGHT NEXT TO a fight when it's happening! Twelve of us went to this game and had a great time. It was Star Wars vs. Star Trek night and the picture above shows you who I ran into on my way into the rink. It was absolutely, positively, most definitely way too much fun!! I got some really great pictures including the one below. I love how the light is shining down over Darth Vader as he drops the puck to open the game!

Motivation and Happiness...

It's been a long time since my last post. I've been very busy lately getting together with friends for things like game night, watching the Knoxville IceBears play hockey (pictures coming soon), and playing cribbage. It has been absolutely fabulous to hang out with this great group of friends. I couldn't ask for anything better!

There are so many terrible things going on in the world today - too many, in fact, to list. So much negativity seems to really get me down a bit. Not only that but I'm feeling somewhat overwhelmed at school and seriously lacking some motivation. I think much of that has to do with the crappy weather we've had lately as well.
Me + bitter cold = unhappy girl!
It's a beautiful day here today. Temps are in the 50's and it's sunny. I think I'm going to go outside for a little bit and just sit in the sun. That will help to keep me positive!
