So I just applied to be a summer intern at The Seattle Times.
Here come the nerves and (misplaced) paranoid feelings that everything I sent is rife with typos.
The sky is flashing and it is thundering and raining quietly. I like peaceful evenings like this.
Sunday night swing dance always seems to put me in a good mood.
Now for no lights and perhaps some tea.
My dad is one of the best people I know. He taught me everything from times tables and birdhouse-building to painting and how to laugh and crack a joke during the worst of days. You can blame him for my sense of humor, independence, and curiosity as to how everything works.
Mein Vati, ich liebe dich. Du bist die bestens auf den Welt. Ich vermisse dich und ich wünsche, dass ich nach Hause mit dich war.
Wednesdays are going to be my long day of the week. I get out of class at 3:30, go to work at 4:30, and head home at 8. Blah.
I was in a bit of a meh mood while waiting for Media Ethics to begin. But then I received some fantastic news…
I was selected to be a video intern at Seattle Metropolitan Magazine for Nosh Pit, the mag’s food blog! I was/am really excited.
During my hour break between class and work, I decided to check my email. Apparently, I was selected by UW’s Communications department to receive a scholarship for autumn quarter.
Gaaah. I am just really happy right now.
It is time for me to start taking my own advice.
Happy 2012, my dears.
New Year’s Eve was interesting, to say the least. This was the first year I did not celebrate with my family as I have for the last nineteen years. There was no lumpia, spaghetti, or egg soup. (This was a strange concept to me.)
Instead, I was surrounded by good friends and booze. My drinking stayed fairly classy and I managed to dance around in four inch heels all of the evening. Without going into too much detail, it was a very fun night…until I had to shepherd the drunklings, but that is a different story.
Now, winter quarter at UW has started and I have to be responsible again. Damn.
So, as my first post of 2012, I thought it only appropriate to type out a few of my goals for the year. As my goals are fairly broad, I feel that they might be a bit easier to tackle as opposed to the typical “lose fifteen pounds by spring” or whatever the hell New Year’s resolutions are supposed to be.
That is all, really.
