It was just about as exhausting an experience as one can imagine, and I’m still sort of trying to catch up. I lost three days last week (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday) to moving, and I’m still not done getting everything out of my parents’ in-law apartment and over to my new place. I have (mostly) unpacked, though there are still two garbage bags full of clothing on my floor (that I need to sort through) and the kitchen is still a (mostly) unpacked wreck. We need a kitchen table (we have chairs, just no table!) and a couple of bookshelves. We’re getting these from Ikea sometime soon:
We also need a living room rug (probably going to get one soon too). But the place is really coming together. The kitties LOVE it. And Samantha seems to love the kitties, which is good. I overheard her and Tempest “talking” to each other today, and it was so damn adorable.
I finished both of my final papers for Dr. S yesterday and sent them in, so TECHNICALLY I am finished with classes for my Master’s degree (so long as I get an A- or above in that class). I should only have my revisions for Dr. LW (due next Tuesday) and then I’m done done DONE for the Spring ’13 semester. Holy crap, this went by fast. Sometime over the summer, I’ll find out if my prospectus was accepted or rejected, and if I’m graduating in December like I hope, or in May (wouldn’t be the end of the world, but I don’t want to be in school for another year).
I also (with the help of Matt and David) convinced my friend Drea to buy a ticket to Wildfire in a few weeks! I’m so freakin’ excited that it’s Wildfire season again. Time for firespinning! I don’t know how we live through the winter months, I really don’t. I haven’t burned since August and I miss it. Introducing a new friend to the spinning arts is seriously exciting. I think we’re going to have the best Wildfire yet!
It’s all coming together. It’s taken me a long time to get to this point, but things are finally coming together.
