I'm back, and with mixed feelings. But since I just spent the last hour or so catching up on LJ and I still am only halfway there (still 160 entries to go) I am just going to say, I'm back, I had a great time and am currently looking for a job on the East Coast so I can get back out there ASAP. More later, sleep now.

Yeah! I'll be heading back East in 23 days and I'll be going with more money than I thought. Not only will I have tax refund money, but my boss told me that this paycheck will reflect my six-month raise that I didn't know I was getting.

I get to see [livejournal.com profile] eeyorekdm and maybe [livejournal.com profile] ercsk if he goes against the grain and actually tries to contact us. I get to go back to school and see my beach and my friends and my beach and Buckley's (not to mention John the bartender) and my beach. YEAH!

Went to China Palace this weekend with some friends. I don't think I've been there since high school. We ordered drinks from the "Exotic Cocktails" list and discovered that "Exotic" must be chinese for "lots and lots of rum!"

Said goodbye to an old high school buddy. He's off to go backpacking around the Himalayas for seven weeks. How amazing is that? Another high school friend will be moving to Korea for a teaching job. And here I am, spending my days in glamorous Ft. Fun. Those apps to Imperial College and such are looking better and better. Just give me time...oh wait, I have too much of that...patience, I just need patience.

You should all feel very lucky. I started this entry eariler, but my computer fritzed. Now I am much more content as my belly is quite full of some delicious homemade broccoli and cheese soup that had potatoes and carrots and all sorts of other yummies in it.

But still, the need is there to purge, and as I haven't done any "real" journaling in a long time Enter at your own risk )

Not the work situation, unfortunately, but my mood has certainly improved. How you ask? Simple, I have plane tickets!! I will be in PA (and maybe LI for a bit) the second week of May. And there was MUCH rejoicing.

And at the same time, I've accomplished quite a bit today. It just seems that time is moving so sl-o-o-o-o-o-ow. Probably because yesterday I was IMing Kim and Jay from school. Much more entertaining. Especially as I was planning a visit at the same time. I NEED to get out of this town. I have been in Colorado for almost a year straight now. Gah! For somebody who hasn't spent more than 3 consecutive months in the same state for the past 4 years, it's a little confining. I want to go someplace!!! I want to see all my NY friends!!! But most of all I want out of this town for a little while. Nothing really important to say, just needed to rant.

I wanna...

I suppose I could...

But only if I was willing to use a large chunk o'savings. Hmmmmm... Dreams are nice.

Been thinking about The Future recently. Basically because I made a quasi-decision and it's too late now to reverse it as there's no way I could get my applicaion into Boston in time. Basically, I'm going to be taking an additional year off. On the one hand it's good:

  • I'll save up lots of money
  • I'll pay off more debt
  • I'll have more time to explore my options before setting my course.

I just hope I don't get sucked into the Fort Collins vaccuum to the point that I am unable to escape. And I hope that the whole "living with the folks" thing doesn't drive me completely insane. Yes, I could move out, but that would put a serious dent in item #1 up there and mean I'd have to stick around even longer before doing what I want to do.

So what are these "options" that I've been exploring? Well, as it turns out, there are several universities in Ireland and the UK that offer a Masters in Science Communication. Actually got in a conversation with the folks where THEY said "We've never understood why you and Joshua didn't do some international work/travel/study while you still are free to do so." So the wheels started turning and we'll see what happens. Hell, even if I still end up going to BU, at the rate I'm saving, a year and a half from now I'll have more than enough to take a great vacation before starting the semester.

As in I am so very...

Slow day at work today. I guess it's counterbalance for the $4,250 day we had yesterday (we average about $1,000 a day normally so yesterday was HUGE!).

Got a call from the insurance people. They want to replace my bumper where the girl rear-ended me. It has a few scratches...in plastic. Who cares?! So I'm going to take the money instead. Hee hee!! That way I can put it with what's left of my Christmas bonus and maybe save up for a nice vacation. My friend just graduated so she's taking all her graduation money and she and her boyfriend are going to Cancun. I'm thinking less tropical/touristy and more Europey...I hope. But I'm glad she made me think of saving up for travel as opposed to splurging on schtuff.

Reached into my back pocket and found a slightly laundered ticket stub from going to see The Book of Kells at Trinity College in Dublin. I'm ready to go back at any moment.

In that vein, been broadening my horizons beyond Boston, as in across the Atlantic beyond. Turns out Science Communication is a degree offered at a number of schools in Ireland and the UK. Hmmmmmmmm.
