Favorite Things

I'm such a slacker. I totally forgot that I was the featured Friday Favorites on Molly's A Few of My Favorite Things a couple Fridays back. Click here if you'd like to take a gander at what I consider to be a few of my favorite things. :)

Since school has finished I've finished four books. Two of them I started before school ended, but I finished them once on "break", and started and finished two more since finals were done with. I'm feeling very proud of this fact, despite that we aren't talking about War and Peace or Moby Dick here. They weren't big books, but they were good books that I enjoyed, so I declare it a total win. What's up next? I still have to peruse my shelves of the unread to decide, but here's what I've just finished up and loved. And if you want to see what else I've got on my to-read list (besides what's listed in my sidebar here) you can click over to my pinterest board of books.

Long time no blog. I was so busy with school, and Josh being in FOUR bands now that something had to give and it was this little space. I had a great, if a little stressful, end to the Spring semester. 100 averages in History and Government, 98 in Comp II, and a 94 in my last Mod Math course. I got 100 on my History, Government and Comp II finals. But, my favorite part of the last week of school was getting a 100 on my third Comp II paper, "The Ruins of Greek Tragedy in the Comedy of Woody Allen." My professor had told me earlier in the semester that he didn't give 100's at all, so when I discovered my grade online, I went running to his cubicle to confirm it wasn't a mistake. I got the first 100 he's ever given! So pleased that I was able to write about something I love, like Woody Allen, in an analytical way that really impressed him.

Enough about what a gigantic nerd I am. I'm done with classes right now, except for the fact that I'm working roughly 16 hours at school each week as a note-taker for Disability Support Services. I applied for the job to freshen up my resume, since I've been in the same job for the past 10 years, and to get some on-campus stuff on my transcript. Disability Support work looks pretty nice on applications and such. Of course, I got assigned the most boring classes- Accounting and Business Law. So much for a brief respite from legal stuff! And I'm still at the law office in the afternoons after these classes and all day Fridays. Booooring stuff all around. But even if I just stick it out for the 5 weeks left in this summer session and don't do it again, I've at least accomplished my goal of having something more recent to put on my resume.

Aside from that I've just been busy going to Josh's shows. Two weeks ago was the busiest, when he had 7 shows, plus a TV appearance, in 5 days. The last three shows were a real beating, as we went to Austin for a Friday night show, then drove to Addison for an outdoor festival gig in the early evening Saturday, and then hightailed it to Texarkana for the last one. Phew! Of course I don't have to go with him, but sometimes if I don't tag along on stuff like this I would never see him, ha.

And, under the category of miscellaneous information, I'm on Pinterest now. So, if you wanna check out what I'm pinning lately, you can find me here-

Tonight Josh is playing at First Friday on the Green, so I'm leaving work early to run home and put on a sundress to beat the heat while I watch him play. Hoping to have some yummy tacos or a delicious mezze plate and some beer in the evening sun while digging some good tunes. What a nice start to the weekend that will be!

P.S.- While I've been quiet over here, I've still been sharing recipes at Small Time Cooks, so check it out. Oh, and you can follow that blog on Twitter now- @SmallTimeCooks.
