Hooray for all the Presidents! I am celebrating the heck out of this holiday by staying at home and studying. It’s a good thing, though, because I needed to get out of “go-mode” so that I could do a little bit o’ blogging for ya! I apologize in advance, because if my schedule doesn’t change, I will not be doing much blogging until my class is over. So what am I up to? All sorts of things!

1) I am taking a course on Modern Poetry and have to read and write papers. I am 2 classes away from finishing a second bachelor’s in English. I started doing this because I love reading, and now I kinda hate it. But I will finish.

2) Fightin’ Feb! Basically, I am on a one month diet, and working out 8 times/week with excellent results!  This is tied in with the last thing…

3) Roller Derby! I’ve been skating a lot and we had another bout on Feb 12th. It was a pretty big deal and we had more spectators than we had room for.  Our team joined up with another team and we mixed up players and bouted against one another. I was very nervous the night beforehand because everyone was taking the competition SO SERIOUSLY. The good news is that my team’s coach played me a lot! I was in just about every other jam, and I got to be the jammer, like, 8 times! I had so much adrenaline rushing through me that I didn’t feel any pain and now I really cannot remember what happened all that well. But we WON! YAY!

If you’re curious, you can watch the first couple minutes of this video to see me jam. I’m the jammer for the red team at the beginning. I don’t get lead jammer, but because I passed their jammer, I got 5 points! WOOT!

If none of this makes any sense to you, start out by watching this:

And here is the video from my bout:

4) Traveling! I’m heading to Okinawa next week. I’ll try to do some fun stuff and write about it for you. I will also make sure to get the biggest, most ridiculous dessert treat I can concoct at Yogurtland! So far, nothing has beat my first time.

Isn’t she a beaut? So much to look forward to!


  1. Charlotte was sitting on the couch next to me as I was reading this and when she saw your yogurt sundae picture said, “OH MY GOODNESS! Can I have that ice cream? Can I have it for my birthday? It looks like my very special FAVORITE kind!”

  2. Me watching the first video: “Pfft… boring. They’re just going in circles”

    Me watching the second video: “Oh… that’s cool. Oooooh that’s how… I get it now.”

    Me re-watching the first video: “YEEEAAAAAAH THERE SHE IS. YOU JUST GOT PAAASSSED PUUUUNK!!!!!”

    True story.
