Life. Pretty Good.
What follows is a little cross-section of things over the past few weeks. It's not in any particular order, but there's still some stuff of interest (maybe?) in there.
Granted, when one works in a University of Arizona department during Spring Break, one expects it to be rather dead. *grin* Actually, it's kind of a nice change, considering priority registration starts in a few scant weeks, and then there will be CHAOS!! I've nearly completely finished the project I was given, all that's left is to sort the forms so they can be shipped off where they need to go. Shouldn't take all that
long tomorrow. I'm rather proud of myself for some reason. Plus next check will be nice, as I put in extra hours this week. Yay!
School-wise, things are going alright. The usual mess and cycle of classes. Not much else to say - except that I'm looking more forward to next semester when I can apply to Art History. Latin, the second time around, is surprisingly easier. Still need to work (more), but I feel like I'm getting it better - which rocks. Unfortunately, it means I'm fairly busy/tired most nights. This means I don't know how often I'll be able to hit mini painting at Sam and Marina's. Don't think much, if at all, in the near future, as I need to work on so many things. Couple of papers loom menacingly.squeeky_v
came out last week - which rocked. It's always fun to see/hang out with her. Didn't get to do as much as I wanted with her, but she did come over, spend time with domnall
and I, as well as avilina
. She said she had a very good time, which makes me pleased. She played lots of Viva Pinata (Yes, I own it. Don't mock me. *grin*) and played with the loom I bought at Estrella. We also saw Music and Lyrics
. Which is a fun little chick flick and has scenes of Hugh Grant doing 80's dance move-thingys. We had a good time. i do need to expand my collection of movies with him - they're wonderfully good background or laze-about movies.300
was also seen by domnall
and I. Bloody, violent, drool-worthy (oh hush), PRETTY! Really. Really. Pretty. Sure, the character development's a bit rushed, and the costumes aren't accurate (much), but it's still a very nice bit of artwork. Granted, it's mostly digital and all, but oh gods is it lovely.
I've also been trying to make conscious effort to spin. I finished my first bag of roving, and now I need to set the resulting yarn in hot water. I'm proud of myself, even if it's shaky and the yarn is no-where near even. The second bag of roving (a nice dark brown/grey) is a little more smooth, but not by much. I keep needing to get my hands used to it all.
I'm happily playing World of Warcraft. My mage has been re-specced to Fire, and oh how I love it. In tabletop news - the druid's got another spear. I fear nothing. Hee! Also, on Friday night nicodeamos
and his lady - Angie (who is quite cool, btw), came over to play Arkham Horror - which is a board game based on teh Call of Cthulhu RPG. Very fun.
Also, I've started (again) the cross-stitch of my device! It's looking pretty, and much easier since I bought new, smaller, needles! I just need to let everything else settle a little and then I want to hook up my torch and enjoy glass fun!
