Blog Challenge Catch-Up & Blog Shoutout

Monday, December 14, 2009

I am happy to report that December 13 passed uneventful - not entirely, but nothing bad happened. So yay for that! (Please see post right below to understand why this merits a note.)

Second, before I play catch-up with the Blog Challenge, I want to highlight a blog I've recently stumbled upon. I decided to join 20sb (see icon on the right for details) in an effort to connect through this blog with others, and one of the blogs it led me to is Insomnia and Short Attention Spans. I like his blog - it's interesting, it's diverse in its subjects, it introduced me to a sport called chess boxing (really. Google it.). Not meant to be a pun, but I really do have a short attention span when it comes to blogs sometimes. His writing keeps me reading. And, in the ultimate win of my appreciation, he not only made a Friends (the tv show) reference, but worked it effortlessly into a blog post! That, my friends, is talent.

And lastly, the Blog Challenge catch up!
Day 13: What's the best change you made to the place you live?
When I moved back in with my parents after being laid-off, the re-creation of my room was definitely interesting. Before I left for college, I packed up everything and put it in boxes in my closet and around the perimeter. During my four years of college, things just built up in there; my family stored stuff, each year i brought things home to keep out of my college apartment, friends/family came to stay and left things. So when I moved back, having to sort it all out and then work 4 years of college life back in...that was a challenge. But I've made it entirely liveable, and I feel it reflects who I am now.

Day 14: Rush. When did you get your best rush of the year?
Cliche as it may be, my graduation from college. Specifically, walking the stage. It's standard and stereotypical, but it really is transitional and meaningful. Crossing from education into "real" world was the biggest rush I've had yet...for better or for worse.

About Me

My photo
I'm fairly obsessed with penguins, Peanuts (the comic), and the TV show Friends. Parentheses may or may not be (over)used in this blog, and books will pretty much be the only thing I ever talk about because they are my One True Love.
