Losing a family member is never easy. Though during this time I try to ignore my first reaction when people say they will pray for me. I know they mean well, and that is what matters. And if what my grandfather wanted was a Catholic mass, then that is what we will do. Our last wishes do deserve to be respected, within reason of course.

I try not to think about him being gone too much, but it's hard. It is a part of life, but not one I enjoy.

I have not been around much

I graduated from graduate school a little over a week ago, on May 17th from Hollins University in Roanoke, VA. (Master of Arts in Liberal Studies). Now I am left with plight of finding a job in this economy and no idea what I'm qualified to do in the first place...

So what now?

Um, yeah...so... hmmm... now what?

Sarah --



I received by e-mail today Prof. Lynch's approval of your MALS Essay. He was very favorably impressed -- especially by your accounts the career difficulties of individual singers.






That would be the e-mail I got this morning from my Directing Professor. Here I was, dreading opening it, knowing there would be alot revisions to make, down to the wire, like last time. Well, at least I don't have to present it in any evil professor's classroom/office.… Continue

It's funny...

my family never goes to church, and yet it's assumed we all believe in the big Sky Daddy. Holidays were so secular I did know for years that they had some religious 'reason' for their existence. The only vaguely religious thing we did was not eat meat on Good Friday, which happens to be today.



So in honor of the one religious thing my mother insists we do...I'm making myself steak fajitas for dinner. :)







P.S. - I'm in VA, they're in MD. So it's cool. So sneaky… Continue

Time to write the thesis...

Need I say more? Hopefully I come out of this alive and with a Master's degree in May. Ramen! In the mean time, I have pics of Torpedo to keep me going. Get this done and go home for Spring Break to see the not-so-little-wrinkly-furball-of mischief. ;)

- find time to eat/sleep/drink...lots of time for that.



Whenever this Thesis gets me down, I will crank up the music that inspired it:… Continue

Procrastination

I can't seem to focus on homework these days. With the end of the semester coming up, it's no wonder. Weariness is starting to settle in. It's been 5 weeks since I've been home, 5 weeks since I've seen a large body of water. 5 weeks of staring at the blue ridge mountains in southwest virginia, doing homework. For fun I clean, buy groceries, do laundry...exciting stuff like that.



But this weekend I'm going home for thanksgiving break. I'll get to see the Severn river and the Chespeake… Continue
