Relaxing, TV, Cake

1. I spent most of the day laying out by the pool toasting my skin. Laying out by the pool is so relaxing!

2. Saturday Night Fever was on TV land yesterday. I haven't seen that movie in years! I didn't realize how much of a classic it was until I really starting analyzing some of the topics discussed in the movie, the clothes, and the scenery.

3. For the first time, I tried Red Velvet cake. It's really big in the south apparently and you can find it pretty much everywhere. It was pretty good although I'm not too sure about the frosting. I do love the dark red color of the cake as red is my favorite color!

Job, What's up, Oddness

1. I applied for a job today. I'm hoping I get this one! Next week will be sending out my resume to more places and see who bites.

2. I took a walk around the downtown area just to check things out and see what was up. There's quite a few bars and really cool looking restaurants that I wouldn't mind trying out.

3. I realized today that it's been two weeks since I graduated with my Master's degree. It feels weird to be on vacation still. It like I still have something pending but really I have nothing. I better enjoy this while I can.

Resume, Bar, Pub

1. I worked on my resume today which I'm hoping will land me a good and stable job soon. I think I'm pretty much done with it before I start sending it off to different employers. I've come to realize that looking for a full time job is a full time job in itself.

2. There's a bar just within walking distance of me where I can see why it's the Tyger's favorite hang out. It's small, intimate, and serves a list of food with good beers. I have a feeling we'll be spending a lot of time there.

3 I went to this really cool pub/restaurant tonight for drinks and appetizers. The menu is made from wood and has a leather flap as a cover. The napkins are those bar wipe/dish towels and the place looks like a log cabin of some sorts. Very cool place!

Job hunting, Cleaning, Wine

1. Job hunting is really time consuming but hopefully something will come my way. I'm learning that having a Master's degree has opened many more doors for me.

2. I cleaned the apartment today which always leaves me with a sense of accomplishment.

3. Wine is becoming my new best friend. It listens and doesn't talk back, always there when I need to cry, and leaves me feeling relaxed.

Friends, Cooking

1. Spending the day with a good friend is always good for the heart

2. Being told that not only is my cooking delicious but that it also looks pretty. I love cooking!

3. Making my friend happy by just being here

Pool, Strawberries, Wine

1. Laying out by the pool was great! With everyone away for the weekend, I had the place to all myself!

2. Strawberry shortcake from the farmer's market tasted so incredibly good. You can't get any fresher than farmer's market strawberries!

3. A glass of wine with a good friend is the only way to end the day.

Catching Up

Wow! So it's been a while since I last wrote anything. I've been so busy that I haven't had a chance to write anything!

1. My thesis is done and over. My department is looking into publishing it since I'm the first person to do this kind of research in my field. Also, they feel that people in the field and the university will benefit from it. I don't know what the process is for publishing but the thought is quite exciting!

2. I graduated May 16th with my Master's degree in Deaf Studies with an emphasis in Cultural Studies. Walking across that stage was amazing! I can't believe I did it!

3. The parties and gatherings leading up to graduation were so much fun! I'm just glad I didn't get as drunk as I did the night of the defense! I'm really going to miss my classmates!

Pancakes, Thesis, Muffins

1. Jersey and I went to IHOP this afternoon for lunch. I had my strawberry pancakes! They were so good that I cleaned my plate!

2. I finally have a clear head to finish the correction on my thesis. I'm hoping to make the deadline.

3. One of the professors who lives on campus brought me HOT banana muffins that her husband made. She said she felt bad for me for having to work on a Friday night. It was so sweet of her to think of me! I love this lady and I think of her as my role model. She's 40, very pretty, has her PhD, and married to a very nice guy. I hope to be in her shoes someday.
