Three Weeks

15 December 2014

Three weeks from today, I will be starting my first classes at BSU. 2015 and January still sort of feel like they’re a long way away, but really they’re just around the corner. And with Christmas and New Years in there, there’s quite a bit happening in that short amount of time.

Within this 3 week time period, I still need to:

» Attend orientation and advising – Already scheduled for this Friday.

» Register for classes – Something I can’t do until I attend orientation, much to my frustration.

» Find an apartment  – My mom’s offered to help with this, as well, trying to cram myself, my stuff, and my cats into her home isn’t the most ideal situation.

» Apply for jobs – Balancing a full load of classes plus working will definitely keep me busy, but well, grocery money.

» Pack – Shouldn’t take all that long, given that 1) I’m in a studio apartment, and 2) I still have stuff I never unpacked from when I moved here at the beginning of the year.

» Find my bed – Yeah… so…. when I moved to the studio, I swapped my full-sized bed for my sister’s twin she wasn’t using… Only, now, we’re not sure who has my old bed. And I really would like it back.

» Move – My dad mentioned he’d help with the U-Haul, I just need to confirm this… then find some people to help get my stuff into the truck (as dad & I both have bad knees and can’t carry too much down stairs). I also want to get a new cat crate before this time too.

» Figure out a car – My dad and I have talked about signing over one of his cars to me, there’s just a lot that needs to happen with that first… so I don’t know when or if that will happen. Hoping that my new apartment will be not too far from campus, and thankfully there is a bus I can ride for free. Mainly it’s just grocery trips and whatnot — which until I get my own car, I can arrange with my mom or one of my grandmas.

» Buy my books – Need them for my learnin’. Just hope they’ll come in on time for my classes and, you know, not completely drain my bank account.

» Don’t panic.

Holiday Gifts: Miscellaneous Picks

14 December 2014

And here it is. Three days of lists ending with this: the miscellaneous list. These are just the ones that I like simply because I like them. There’s not much of a theme, though you’ll see a fair bit of Chicago stuff, mainly because I will indeed miss this place so much. » Field Museum […]

Holiday Gifts: Adventure Picks

13 December 2014

More gift picks! This time the theme I chose was “Adventure” … which I may have interpreted somewhat differently. I think the shirt in this pick really speaks to my sort of adventure (or at least for this current part of my life). » Ladies of the Field by Amanda Adams – This book is all […]

Holiday Gifts: Fandom Picks

12 December 2014

It’s that time! Yep. It’s holiday time, so on with the lists of things I want, but more-than-likely won’t get either because I chose to spend the money elsewhere (and my family doesn’t tend to see/use any list I make, because, hello 30.) Anyway, I didn’t mean to time this out with Fandom 5 — […]

Endometriosis is ruining my life

11 December 2014

All hyperbole aside, that’s basically what it feels like. I’ve chronicled my experiences with this disease since the beginning, though I’ll admit I’m sometimes hesitant to write all that much about it. It’s just a very personal disease. No one really wants to hear about your uterus or your “lady problems.” But of course right […]

Patreon: Another way to support bloggers

10 December 2014

Talking about sponsorships and the business side of blogging isn’t always easy. It falls into the “self promotion” category. While some people are adept with this and can do it seamlessly without a second thought… for others, myself included, it’s like a really awkward dance where we spend too much time trying not to trip […]

November Reads

9 December 2014

Novels + Short Stories Shadowcry (Wintercraft #1) by Jenna Burtenshaw – ★3-3.5 I finally got my library card linked up to the digital loans selection; this was the first book I checked out. Might not have been my first choice, but well, there were limited options. The basis of this storyline is the space between the living […]
