A lil comparison between MY hometown of Clifton, NC and Steve's hometown of Berkeley, NJ.

Clifton is 54.49 sq miles.
Berkeley is 55.8 sq miles. Steve also mentioned that he lives in the 'rural/low population' part of Berkeley.

Close enough in size right?

Clifton has 1,635 people.
Berkeley has 42,664 people.

Look at the two pictures below from Google Earth that show an overhead satellite photo.
Clifton first- in case you didnt figure that out.

Now I know why his dad was so impressed by the lack of people.

New favorite pic of myself:

let see...long time. Sorry :(

Here's a quick shot of me and my mama and daddy at a scholarship dinner recently. Ain't we CCCCCCCCUTE?! I'm heading home soon to visit the fam and I could NOT be more excited! I love going home, and I had better get tons of super cute bragable pictures of all the bubbies! You can check back here to see how that's going!

Steve and I just got back from Jersey. His lil sister Kari (her burfday is the day before mine!) graduated from HS. They graduated 360 kids. That's astounding! I think we graduated a little over 100. We stayed a couple days and hung out with his friends and family, his grandpa and grandma came up to visit for her graduation. Good time, dontcha know. I slacked off taking pictures..I have lately at least. Quite Sad.

Here's a quick shot of Steve/Kari's Dad, Kari, Steve and their grandpa. Family resemblence? I think so.

One thing I have been doing successfully is planting up me some herbs! I have cilantro, dill, curled parsley and chives so far. The wee little pics below are my glowing babies. I am going to repot them soon, and get some more growing! YAY!

By the way: still supporting barack obama, cute pic of steve and I at the rally!

My Happy List

I havent made a Happy List since my time at NCSSM. It used to be all the rage to do in your AIM profile. Theres the obvious stuff, but Happy lists were always different random things..As I was driving in my car today, something made me giggle and I decided it was time to bring back my happy list. I plan on continuing to add to it, and I want to keep printing it off to put in my here goes, if you read this, lemme know what yours are! :)

So, My happy list:
  • Turning the AC on high and aiming it at my face while singing so I can feel the WIND IN MY HAIR!
  • The first fresh page in a brand new notebook. Full of hope and promise and soon sullied :(
  • Opening a new jar of peanut butter and making a design with my knife
  • baby animal pictures, specfially in LOLCAT form.
  • fabric stores
  • quacking (just the noise...makes me giggle)
  • planning my world travels!

Money Money Money Money!

My mom and dad gave me some money's for easter..soo, I bought the collection above. It's gorgeous. I also finished buying groceries or a few weeks and filled up my tank (hopefully that'll last for a while!) Take Rent/TWC out of the equation, and I'm back to being tight for extra cash. There's wiggle room for some crafty-endeavors. Luckily.

This week is going to be crazy, absolutely insane. I have 4 exams and 2 papers this week. I'm also PMSsing :( Not looking forward to this one. We're all going on vacay early May, before amanda and em and bon move far away, so that should be exciting. Then summer classes start (WAHHOOO there) I should be finished in the lab by mid/late May, so then I can have a real job and make real money. It'll be NICE!.

Im done procrastinating...not really. Im going to sit on my butt for a bit.

today's question

in a swap a bit ago, I received a "dear blog" heart with lots of little prompts in it..and tonite, im gonna start doing some of them. so, tonite i drew out :
if your house caught on fire, what would you take with you?
i'm going to assume that its my twnhouse. Obviously, I would grab my purse with my wallet in it, and my computer. My computer because it has all my pictures and songs on it, my journals, papers and work from the last 4 years. I would also grab as many of my turtles as I could, plus the jewelry that really means alot to me - my turtle necklaces from my parents, the daughter necklace, etc. I would grab my shot glasses, as they mark all the places i've visited, and if i still had time, my sewing machine and the boxes with my swap packages and crafting supplies.

Its really weird that I drew that one. Last night I had a dream that I was at home and my family got a phone call that the family property on top of the mtn, (they should know what im talking about) was burning and we needed to get up there. When we got there, there was a trailor on the property burning, but the house itself, gorgeous and lovely and everything I remember it as, had yet to be touched. After seeing some friends of mine and playing with their super fat kitten (I called it a rolypoly) I ran into the house and started grabbing pictures. I remember mom and dad asking why Im doing it and I told them that the house was going to burn and I had to save the pictures...when I woke up, I was crying. Crying because I couldnt save all the pictures before I was woken up or woke myself up...that house burned when I was in 2nd or 3rd grade I think...

I have no idea why it was in my mind last night.

I got an IYP package on saturday and this is just one of the goodies per say..i love her poly clay creations, they all look so yummy and wonderful. She also sent some arm warmers, a GORGEOUS rose tea candle holder, some awesomely cute mini microbes and a supersweet letter. I'll post some more pics in a bit...

The new "TRIP BLOG" is going to be awesome, and it's chock full of pics. (ps. click on TRIP BLOG and it'll take you right to it)

I am my father's daughter

My dad is incredibly accident prone. If there is a nail, log, sharp surface or splinter nearby, he will cut, stab, jab, bruise or bump himself. I am the same way..but I like to add burns to my list. I can count 4 in the last year..from the Iron on my wrist, the rice cooker on my upper arm, the motorbike on my calf and my newest "I shouldnt be allowed to cook" scar: my oven eye PINKY!
