So I started school this week (Hooray!) and although this term is going to require me memorizing an ungodly amount of things, I'm really looking forward to all my classes. I am still in the process of getting internet in my apartment so I haven't really been keeping up with any television shows or the news lately, but when I was reading some blogs today, I came across this post. It's short and simple and quite nerdy but I was quite excited about it... all it says is:

OMG! Sue Sylvester said "hominid!"

If you're interested in keeping up with current anthropology news (especially biological and paleoanthopolgy) check out the blog I got this from... here.

New Glasses

Yesterday I went to my brother's soccer game and found that along my way there was an old pioneer cemetery. It was so beautiful and park like I was tempted to come back for a picnic. I feel that might be too morbid, to have a picnic in a cemetery, but I still wanted to do it. There were old gravestones with hidden stories buried in the names on them and a beautiful old building that looked like it was probably a mausoleum (that's what that picture is of) as well as some really great trees. I've always felt that I would like trees to be near my grave, if I have a grave. And really the best kind of tree to be buried near would be a really great climbing tree... Ok I'm done being so morbid... Later while I was waiting for the bus to go home, I realized that autumn really is showing up, the leaves are starting to change and even though there have been a few sunny days lately the rain and gloomy clouds have started to come back. 

On another entirely unrelated note, I got new glasses. I'm still not entirely sure what to think of them... is that bad? I mean I did pick them out, I just am not entirely sure why I like them or if I really do like them all that much.

I hate talking on phones. I hate blogging in public. I actually really hate e-mail for the most part. Unfortunately these aren't things that I can really get rid of in my life. I need to get over my dislike of phone calls and get internet in my apartment already... I've lived here for almost a month for goodness sake! And if I hadn't gotten over my blogging in public issues I wouldn't be writing this right now (with paranoid fears that people are looking over my shoulder and judging me). As far as e-mail goes... I just like getting real mail so much more but if it wasn't for e-mail figuring out my work schedules would be a lot harder and I'd have to talk on the phone a lot more, so I'm ok with it. I guess the point of this entire post is that there isn't really much going on in my life right now. I'm sitting in a gelato shop (sorry work, but this is across the street from me) sipping coffee wishing school would start so I had something to do. This is my "summer vacation" (hardly, in the traditional sense - it's only 2 weeks long) but I don't really want it. I just want to get on with school and finish already. Even though I don't know what I'm going to do when I finish with school.

Ginger Green

So.... I moved to a new apartment at the end of August. Said new apartment does not have internet (yet) so I haven't been able to post anything because I'm strange and don't want to blog in public... Right now I'm in Bend, visiting for a few days during my two-week summer break (I didn't think it would ever come). I'm not sure what I'm going to do while I'm here but hopefully there will be a lot of time spent outside and perhaps some hiking and definitely some tea. I'm excited for the next few days to pan out. Hopefully I'll get to see some people I haven't seen all summer too. I'll try to get some internet soon, mostly so that I can watch movies again, but also so I can post things on here.
