Guess what came in the mail today.

The Adele 21 record!!! That’s right, record! Old school style! I pre-ordered this almost a month ago and have been patiently waiting for it since. OK, well, I was patiently waiting until the release date and then I turned to obsessively checking the un-updated tracking information for the next 5 days. I checked at least 3 times a day to find nothing new every time. Finally, today everything was updated as my package arrived. I guess I can’t complain since I did just pay for the basic shipping. I just didn’t want to wait. Well, now that the waiting is over it is finally here and was totally worth it. I opened it right away and played it on the parents’ record player. View full article »

The 1-1-2-7

That’s what we called our house in Norman, “The One One Two Seven”. Not eleven twenty-seven, that just sounds weird. I absolutely adored that house. It had five bedrooms, two bathrooms, a nice size kitchen, a dining room, living room, den and detached garage. Seriously, how many college houses have that much space?! When looking at the house straight on it looks utterly tiny. It looks like it could have maybe 2 bedrooms. But, when you drive just a little bit farther it’s awesomeness is revealed. Look!

I’m Back!

Did you ever think this day would come? If you are one of the few people who kept checking in in hopes that I had finally posted something, you probably got a little tired of seeing Cody every time. But at least he’s greeting you welcomingly. Or have you forgotten about me completely? That would be totally understandable, it has been over 9 months!! Wow. Maybe a better question would be: Did I forget about the blog completely? The answer to that is, absolutely not. It’s always right there in the back of my mind. The thought just sits there to make me feel guilty, which is totally deserved. I stopped posting because as my semester came closer to the end the reality of being enrolled in 21 hours finally hit and I was constantly in panic and work mode.

Well, I survived and am now here to fill you in on what I have been up to. I’ve taken so long to update because I got so wrapped up in the fact that I failed the 365 goal and it would be impossible to go back and recap everyday. Then I got over that and moved to Wyoming with limited internet and thought it would be a big undertaking to catch everyone up to speed. Then I took a road trip and saw lots of awesome things but still didn’t update because I felt I had to make a post about Wyoming before I could say anything about the road trip. Then i moved back home and had stuff to say but couldn’t because I still had to post about Wyoming and the road trip. Do you see a pattern? So I’m going to try to catch up before anything else gets in line.

I’ll give you a brief update of the past few months and you can check back tomorrow for a more detailed post. Well, here goes. I:

  • Moved out of my house in Norman (so sad)
  • Flew to Wyoming to be a housekeeper at a guest ranch for four months
  • Took a road trip from the south of Wyoming to Seattle, down the coast, to the Grand Canyon and back to Tulsa
  • Moved back into my parents’ house and started the unsuccessful job hunt

So that’s that and I will get back into this thing. Check back tomorrow!

O yea, Happy Valentine’s Day too!

May 1st

I had friends over tonight as a final hurrah for the year. So many people came, it was crazy fun. Crazy but tame fun. I was most excited about my photo friends coming. I know I’ve said it before but really, I freaking love these people. I am going to miss them so crazy much. They all have amazing personalities and we always have fun together whether it’s at a party, over night in the digital lab, or in class. View full article »

Yesterday, I was telling you that I wasn’t mature enough to fold my laundry and now I’m showing you what I do at work on a Friday night. Yea, I color. Tonight, it was so dead, I got to color two pages! Wow, excitement. View full article »

The excitement of my day, laundry. You are totally jealous aren’t you? I know, man it feels good to be me. But really, it feels good to have clean clothes and variety. I let my laundry pile up for quite a while. Who has time for laundry. I never seem to. The most impressive part of this is that my laundry is folded. I despise folding laundry. It is easily the worst part. I can sort it, put it in the washer, choose the cycle, and put the soap in. I don’t even mind transferring the wet clothes from the washer to the dryer but once the dryer is done, misery. View full article »

To celebrate Capstone being over, a couple of my classmates and I went to McNellie’s for $3 burger night. Before going to McNellie’s our professor took us to O’Connell’s and bought a round of dollar domestics. It was great to hangout with everyone. I wish we had become closer friends before now. They are all amazing people and I am honored to have them in my life. View full article »

I walked around campus today and took a couple pictures before work. OU has such a beautiful campus, I’m really going to miss it. I rarely walk to this end of campus since all my classes are contained in one building on the north end. I do love the South Oval though. There is always something going on and the flowers are beautiful. View full article »

I got a little overwhelmed with homework today so I decided I would start on my packing. I started a box for picture frames and different decor from my bookshelves. Taking all my decorations down made it more real that I was moving which made me a little depressed so I stopped packing and went back to my homework. I’m going to miss my house in Norman.

My Capstone project is finally up! It looks kinda snazzy doesn’t it? The glare on the glass kinda makes it hard to see. I think it turned out alright.

Mom, Dad, and Erin came down to Norman for the opening reception. It was a pretty good success. There was a good turnout and everybody’s stuff looked great. My pictures didn’t fall off the wall either so that’s always good news.
