Excited about the party Saturday. Not so excited about the mad cleaning that must precede it. Suzanne gave it a great plug on the Phi Mu message board. I look forward to seeing her because she amuses me so. Of course, she'll probably have had more sleep.
I got a package from my mom today containing a package from one of my Japanese friends, Hiroe, that had come to my parents' house. She sent me a Xmas card, Japanese candy & a teddy bear key chain. I was most pleased. I love getting letters/e-mails from people whose native language is not English. The phrasing makes me smile. Mom also sent fleece scarves for me & Brooke. She's on a fleece kick, apparently.
I'm at a point where I'm trying to figure out what the next step should be in my life. I'm in a lease for a year, and I really don't want to deal with moving again any time soon. Twice within a year is plenty for now. Not that I think I'll stay in Atlanta forever. I've toyed with taking some classes and expanding my skills in graphic design, but after this week's horrors (file screwed up, have to do twice as much work in half the time to get caught back up), I don't know. Not sure I want to stare at a computer all my life. I'm also toying with going to grad school, maybe to study applied linguistics/ESL. I need to do some volunteering in this area & see how it goes. I wanted to go to a training this Saturday, but I don't know if I'll have time, and I'll be in Texas during the next one.
OK, ramble over. As you were.
