Aah, it's been way too long since I posted!  Well, hmm, what's been going on -  my spring break is ending today, unfortunately.  It has been lovely, even though it snowed on Friday.  Snow over Easter just doesn't seem right, although it happens fairly often here in Michigan.  I was able to write about nine pages out of 10 for one of my term papers, and get most of my big marketing project done.  So I have one more mandatory 10 page term paper, a 5-7 page term paper, and then another "optional" 10 page term paper.  This optional one is "strongly encouraged", though, so I know I'll end up writing it.  Better get the required ones done first though!

My dad and I were talking about the NASA TV channel the other day, and I said how much I hope that one day flights to space are available for civilians, and how much I would love to go on one of those flights, if I could ever afford it.  My dad said that he thinks we will see common civilian space flights in my lifetime, and that he thinks that I'll go one day!  I hope he's right.  I would love so much to go to space, if I could ever afford it.  To me, it would completely be worth the risk.  To see all of earth below, and the stars so near!

I'm getting really excited for my trip to Europe in May.  I still kind of can't believe that we're actually going!   I  definitely need to get out and buy another  memory card for my camera, and more  batteries. 

All right, back to packing for school again!

So, it's my twentieth birthday.  I can't believe that I've officially left my teenage years behind.  Not all that upset about it, mind you, but hey, it's a big transition.  Sort of.  :D 

My parents are driving down later this afternoon and we're going out to dinner.  It'll be good to see them, plus, I'll get real food, not cafeteria food!  I'm very excited.  Other than that, today I'm just studying - drowning in constitutional law, more like.  It's a really good class, but wow is there a lot of reading.

that Heath Ledger has died.  Rest in peace, Heath.  We will miss you.

Wow, it's been a long time since I posted.  Real life has kept me busy, and honestly most of the time not much of it is that interesting.  However, I do have one piece of exciting news!  This May, my sister and I will be traveling to Europe and spending almost a full month visiting several countries!  We'll make stops in London, Paris, Belgium, Austria, Germany, Italy, Vatican City, and Greece.  I am *so* excited.  The only foreign country I've ever been to is Canada, which isn't that exciting because it's so close to my home.  Visiting all these countries will be something I'll remember always.  And the fact that I'm going with my sister makes it even better!  Also, I'm hoping that my parents might be more willing to let me study abroad at Oxford next spring if I have a some experience traveling overseas.  ::fingers crossed::

On another note, I was reading "Bagenders" again.  I read it the first time a few years ago, and I think they're so funny.  However, only the first season seems to still be online.  I can't access the second and third seasons -- actually, I've never been able to.  I wonder if the authors took them down on purpose?  Hmm.

Taken from <lj user="boz4pm"> :

I know very little about some of the people on my friends list. Some people I know relatively well. I read your journals, or we have something else in common and we chat occasionally. Some of you I hardly know at all. Perhaps you lurk, for whatever reason. But you friended me and I thank you for your interest in my words.

But here's a thought: why not take this opportunity to tell me a little something about yourself? Any old thing at all, the more trivial and fascinating, the better. Just so the next time I see your name I can say: "Ah, there's so and so...they enjoy nose-picking on balmy summer evenings, and have a giant birthmark shaped like a wildebeest on their right buttock."

I'd love it if every single person who friended me would do this. Yes, even you people who I know really well. Then post this in your own journal and see what gems of knowledge appear.

Apparently my psychology professor thinks I "can go as far as I want to with psychology".  Which is very nice of him to say, but I have no plans on even a psychology minor, let alone a major.  I do like psychology and find it interesting, but only to an extent.  Meanwhile, I'm trying desperately (well, maybe not so desperately, since I'm wasting time on livejournal) to finish my ten-page paper for that class.  I've got about 7 and a half pages at the moment.  Hopefully it's not all terrible, because I'm not too sure about it. 

One and a half weeks until the semester is over and I can go home for Christmas!  *does dance of joy*

My sister just called to ask me if there is "some fictional character named Frodo Baggins?"  Yes, she was serious, she really didn't know.  I am shocked and grieved.  Clearly I have failed in my duties both as a sister and as a fan of The Lord of the Rings if she didn't even know one of the main character's names.  I knew she hasn't read the books or watched the movies, but I thought she would at least know that...

..t-->My score on../t--> The Classic Dames Test:

Katharine Hepburn
(You scored 21% grit, 9% wit, 52% flair, and 23% class!)

You are the fabulously quirky and independent woman of character. You go your own way, follow your own drummer, take your own lead. You stand head and shoulders next to your partner, but you are perfectly willing and able to stand alone. Others might be more classically beautiful or conventionally woman-like, but you possess a more fundamental common sense and off-kilter charm, making interesting men fall at your feet. You can pick them up or leave them there as you see fit. You share the screen with the likes of Spencer Tracy and Cary Grant, thinking men who like strong women. Find out what kind of classic leading man you'd make by taking the Classic Leading Man Test.

Maybe if instead of Star Wars stuff, there was Tolkien stuff.  Then it would actually be quite accurate.  :D

The slaughter began today with the decimation of a wasp which dared to invade my territory.  It will continue at dusk this evening, when I attack the whole filthy hive with the Bee Spray of Death.  Listen carefully - you might hear the sound of bees everywhere bewailing their devastating loss.  But I show no mercy.
