I hate to do this, but my blog has gotten so far behind that I just have to. There’s no way that I could catch everyone up on what’s been going on without A. Sending everyone a ton of notifications. B. Giving myself an aneurysm while trying to think all the way back to what I did. C. Wasting an entire day updating two weeks worth of blogging. D. Boring you to death by talking about all of the projects and things that I’ve been doing without any real excitement. Well… Some of the things I’m doing are exciting. Just not the work part. So here’s how I’m going to catch you up:
I finished up my trip to visit Casey by going to the zoo. It was a lot of fun and there were plenty of really cool things to look at. We fully took in just about everything the zoo had to offer and even managed to have some spare time afterwards to prepare a pizza and do some tarot card readings.
After forcing ourselves to part from one another the next morning, I started on my 5 hour drive back home. I got stuck in a bit of traffic and the drive was rather boring. (especially without the anticipation of seeing Casey) But all in all, it wasn’t that bad. It actually didn’t even really feel like it was that long of a drive. I got home and finished up some homework and that was pretty much it.
For the next couple of weeks, I did the usual stuff. You know, school, work, school, maybe some sleep in there somewhere. It really didn’t feel like there was any sleep in there…. I ended up going on another Limnology boat trip and it was really great despite it being horrifically freezing on the boat. My Limnology class also went on a field trip to a storm water conference where I made a lot of great contacts and will hopefully have an internship or two brewing. I’m pretty excited about that.
I’ve also started working on a project with another student on campus concerning Colony Collapse Disorder with bees. It’s a really exciting project and has a lot of importance to… well… pretty much everyone. Even if you hate bees, this is a big deal. Google it. Furthermore, I saw The Hunger Games: Catching fire. It was fantastic! Kind of stressful though. It also kind of just made me hate all things government. But that’s a bit too heavy for this blog post. Maybe we’ll talk about that some other time. Probably not though. I also started my own bug pin collection. All of the bugs I’ve collected so far have been dead when I found them. This might lower the quality of my pins, but I don’t like to kill things. I got very fortunate though and found this BEAUTIFUL Monarch Butterfly already dead on the ground. I decided to not let him go to waste as you can see below.
Now I’m on Thanksgiving break and even though I’d like to take this time to relax and spend time with my family, I’m going to be very busy at the grocery store as this is the busiest time of year for us. And if I’m not working there, then I’m going to be working on the countless number of final projects I have all leading up to finals week, which actually starts the week we get back from school. As you can see, I shouldn’t have let the blog get this far behind, BUT I have some pretty darn good excuses. Now that this is updated, it’s back to the old grind for me! Look forward to some more exciting updates very soon. I hope to actually get back to keeping up with this blog and not let my busy life get in the way. Thanks for understanding, guys!
