There's No Place Like Home

Every time I see this sign it warms my heart. The reason: Home Avenue takes me to MY home! What a coincidence!
There really is no place like home.

Sorry Boys

My heart was stolen 4 years ago by some fierce competition, and I haven't gotten it back yet.

Check out THESE heartthrobs:
Cute AND Wise? That's what I call a whole package!
A Ninja to protect me and draw me pictures? Doesn't get much better than that!

A STUD that will take me to the beach? Sign me up!

And a man who loves outdoor adventures? That's my kind of guy!

To any boys who are currently or may in the future be interested in me:

As you can plainly see, you've got your work cut out for you trying to top THAT! I don't envy you.

So, I think I'm just going to do random 5 minute posts for a while until my schedule calms down. But I just wanted to say, its amazingly wonderful how much professors are willing to help me cut corners to graduate in May. Its fantastic! And I'm so grateful.

And figuring out my schedule for next semester, I'm actually going to have time to breathe starting in January! Yay for 18 credit hours!!!! And the past couple of days have been excellent and perfect in pretty much every way for no particular reason.

But as a side note, tonight in the car on the way home from institute I told the girls some funny stories about my family, and I'm sure they were looking at me like I was crazy as I'm trying to drive and can't breathe because I'm laughing so hard. Of course I'm the only one laughing. And as a result, I miss my family! I miss my mommy! And I'm perfectly okay with admitting that fact. I can't wait til Christmas when we're all together again. Christmas?!?! Its too far away! Hooray for next weekend when I get to go home and see my parents, 2 sibs, 2 nephews, and 1 niece full of attitude!

Its been a while since I've had time to post, but I wanted to take a minute and make a good book/story recommendation. A book I'm reading for my Cognitive Neuroscience class is called An Anthropologist on Mars by Oliver Sacks. That entire sentence is not as boring as it sounds. Its a book with various case studies of people with neurological disorders. The story A Surgeon's Life on pages 77-107 is very worth reading. Its about a surgeon with Tourettes. If you want to understand the life of people with Tourettes better, I think this is a good place to start :)

Hopefully I'll find the time to update you on my marvelous life soon. Until then.
