It seems that I am really not doing too well with this whole blogging thing lately. I know, I know, I haven’t been posting consistently, but before you completely abandon reading my blog by thinking I am an unreliable blogger let me first tell you that I have been busy! Now before you go on thinking that me being busy is just some lame excuse, let me assure you it’s not, I honestly have been busy in addition to being in school and working full-time, I am now also in the very difficult process of finding an apartment for September 1st. Now as you know it is nearly August and still I have yet to find somewhere to live. Continue reading

Having a Dad with a serious obsession with fishing can definitely be a good thing, especially when it means getting fresh fish deliveries.

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERASo maybe it’s because I just turned 21, and I am now a real adult or maybe it’s the realization that this fall I will be completing my final year as an undergrad in college, but lately I have been thinking an awful lot about my future. Mostly I have been thinking what the heck am I going to do when I get out of here, and more importantly what do I wanna do once I get out.  It’s a scary thought not knowing what you wanna do, maybe it’s ok for a sophomore, even a junior, but as a soon to be college grad I am not sure not knowing what I wanna do is really an acceptable excuse, is it?

So this is a post that is very long overdue, what can I say, I’ve been busy. In addition to being a student and talking classes (yes even in the summer) I am also a now full time working girl, meaning I essentially have no free time what so ever! On my days off I can usually be found doing several loads of laundry, grocery shopping, studying for my managerial accounting class, a subject which I have deemed impossible to learn, and just generally running around like a chicken with my head cut off.

Yesterday began as a beautiful, bright, sunny day but that quickly changed as news of two explosions at the Boston Marathon erupted, and quickly the day turned dark and depressing as the overall mood turned sad.

The day after marathon Monday is usually a proud day for runners, they walk around the city proudly sporting their medals and showing off their florescent marathon jackets, however today was a bit different in the city of Boston. The usually overcrowded and chaotic T was nearly empty this morning. Instead of a crowd awaiting the t platform, four armed police men stood there as they checked each individuals bag. Classes today were nearly deserted and those that did attend looked unfocused and disinterested. The usual face-paced, energetic Bostonians that walk the city streets were today replaced with somber faced people, confused, and quiet.

This past weekend I had a serious case of the Sundays…some people enjoy Sundays, they find it to be a leisurely, relaxing day, I however, am not one of those people. I find the entire day long and boring. Before you go on thinking I am a pessimist let me explain myself. For starters Sundays are typically my homework day, and this weekend I happened to be quite busy which meant before Sunday I hadn’t even had an opportunity to start any work, meaning that this particular Sunday I had five subjects worth of homework, a paper to write, and two tests to study for (can you really blame me for being so indifferent to Sundays now?) My second reasons for not being a huge Sunday fan of course is knowing that tomorrow is Monday…and you really can’t argue that anyone actually looks forward to a Monday. I know I certainty  don’t especially this week as I have a huge midterm and accounting test…..not fun!

Living in the city can sure have it advantages and disadvantage. It wasn’t long before I realized that when things are good the city is the best place to be, but when things are bad, it suddenly becomes the worst place to be. For example taking a long walk to run errands on a beautiful day doesn’t seem like a chore it just seems like a great source of free exercise, a key advantage of living in the city. But on a cold rainy day walking anywhere seems like a fate worse than death, especially when you’re in a hurry and you wish you could simply hop in a car and take a quick five-minute ride rather than a 15 minute walk.
