I have such a big craving for a sandwich today. Unfortunately I can't think of anywhere good nearby to get one. I'd love a nice Cuban though. Mmmm.

Feelin' Funky

But not in a good way. In a bit of a funk lately. A mood, if you will. Might be my body trying to adjust to these new birth control pills. Might be the lack of exercise thanks to my stupid boot. Who knows? Not me. What do you do when you're feeling a bit down?

Weekend Roundup

I've sort of fallen off the face of the blogosphere lately. Can hardly think of anything worth writing about, and haven't even been reading that much either. I've got 144 entries in my Google Reader to catch up on. But it's a Monday morning at work, so that probably won't take long. ;) This weekend was jam-packed.

One Foot in Front of the Other

I completed my school application last night, and got my transcript ready to mail to them today. It's just community college, but it's the first step. Unfortunately there are so many more steps to follow! I'm feeling really good about this though. I've decided my big, ultimate, dream goals are to either work for Conan/Jeff Ross/Conaco Productions or to work at the Paley Center. I'll be lucky to get a job in the television industry at all, probably, but it doesn't hurt to have something big to shoot for, right?

I'm feeling a little low and frustrated at the same time though. When you finally figure out what it is you think you should be doing with your life, you kind of want to be able to start doing it right away. Trying to exercise patience is not going to be easy, but it must be done. I'm also on the downside of the high that was last Thursday. I get sad after Christmas, post-vacation, etc., so the comedown from the greatest day in my life is a bit rough. I'll manage though. I'm already looking at internships with TBS/Turner/Time Warner/Warner Bros., as well as the Paley Center. And Conan's new show is set to start November 8th. So there are some things to look forward to. ;)

One Day All My Dreams Came True...

...and my heart exploded into a million tiny joy-filled pieces.

Next Big Thing

So, I'm totally pumped for meeting Conan O'Brien tomorrow, despite the stupid boot on my foot! However, I am prone to getting pretty bummed out once I get passed these big-huge-exciting moments. Luckily we're going to upstate NY at the end of June, so I've got something to look forward to. The reason for the trip is unfortunate- memorial service for Josh's step-grandfather who passed away earlier this year. But the experience is shaping up to be more a celebration of life, including a bus, keg, and scratch-off lotto tickets on the way to the service. And while there we are going to go to Niagara Falls!

Weekend/Sick Roundup

Well, I'm still on the couch with my leg up. Toe is still a bit swollen, despite steroids, ice and trying to keep it elevated. I probably was on it too much over the weekend. We did a little grocery shopping, had dinner at Pop-in-law's with the Hoover clan for Mother's Day, and Chinese and Wii Golf at the Mom-in-law's. Went in to work yesterday and there was an incident with a file cabinet nearly crushing my injured toe. So here I sit, because I apparently I can barely move without nearly killing myself. And I'll be damned if I'm not going to make it to Thursday night. Two days until I get to see and meet one of my biggest inspirations!

Lazy Daze

Getting a whole lotta couch/TV time these days, hence the MIA blogger. Not to mention the pain killer haze.
