Things that are new in life:

-We haz a house! We've been in since May, and love it. We've redone the sprinkler system in the backyard, bought a fridge, washer, dryer, microwave, and more $3 Home Depot bits than I can account for, and have our garage storage sorted (for now). It's awesome.

-Minor surgery ftw! I ended up in a hospital...

We sign our closing papers on the new house tomorrow and are moving next weekend. As this process has gone on throughout the month of April, apartment living has REALLY been losing its flair. Our bro-ass neighbor had a party Friday night and played bad music. Another neighbor smokes right outside the only side of our apartment that has any windows. We can hear babies...

-It's lovely and grey out today: supposedly it's raining for the next few days. It did rain a bit overnight, but I haven't seen any today.

-I was in the Human Rights march on Saturday and was one of the lucky ones who got pepper-sprayed by the police. How exciting. All because a few dickhead anarchists had to come and fuck with...

Yikes, getting pepper sprayed is an experience I can safely say I would never want to endure. That really sucks. We missed you Saturday but everyone had a good time, so I am thinking more events are sure to come soon.

-I turned in my application for ASU today biggrin Now I get to wait until March to hear about getting in.

-Silentryan and I are buying a house soon. Looking down in the South Phoenix, Laveen area. Places are cheap down there, we have a mortgage pre-approval already, and we should get this done in time to get the $8000 from the government. Sweet!

-The GRE's went really well. Double 690's on the Verbal and Quantitative, which is 97th percentile in Verbal, 70th percentile in Quant. I thought I'd do a little better in the verbal (I was averaging 720 on the practice tests) but did SO MUCH BETTER than I'd expected on the math. That shit was HARD. I almost ran out of time...

mrluckys:
nice, will you start next semester? any ideas on your research focus or ultimate career plans?

i just started the Educational Technology Ph.D program at ASU this semester. it is nice to be back at school, although i had more free time when i was working. however, i thrive on recognition so the regular feedback at school keeps me motivated.

congrats again!

-GRE is coming up shortly: I'm scheduled to take it on Thursday! Practice tests currently have me in the 99th percentile for verbal and between 80th and 86th for quantitative, so I'm pretty happy. I'm going to destroy the essays too.

*Inept coworker was fired, huzzah! I have to do some of her work now, but I enjoy it and I'm getting major love from the upper levels for it, so I don't mind much. I'm never going to get a raise, but rumor has it that we're getting bonuses this year.

*I saw Bob Dylan at the fair yesterday. I have...

Sometimes the sad hits me. Stupid hormonal vagina. I'm having a cider before voice class because last week I got so upset I almost started crying in frustration. Relax, Jeni, relax.

I'm finishing up my work on "My Funny Valentine," and it sounds pretty damn good if I do say so myself. I convinced the teacher to drop it a few keys so...

Israel trip canceled for lack of participants. Fucking lame.

Lost 3 lbs. since Saturday.

Going to eat some melon and head to work. Possibly at the same time, I'm running a little late.

I'm getting a kitty next weekend, his name is Chairman Meow. The Chairman is coming!

It's a bingo, motherfuckers.
