30's accomplishments.

Well...I have to say, since I've turned 30, I have accomplished A LOT.

Here is a short list:
1. I purchased memory for my computer AND installed it myself...without crashing the hard drive or losing any important files.

2. I purchased a T.V... It has been a year since I've had a T.V, but I finally broke down and got one. I miss watching the news and law and order SVU plus I got a pretty good deal on it and it looks pretty sweet in the bookshelves I built.

3. I have nearly finished ALL of my projects for this quarter...and critiques are a little less than 1 week away. That means I will be sleeping the night before critques...something I haven't done since 2nd quarter.

You all may be wondering what exciting things I did on my 30th birthday...well, I have to's a little disappointing. I had plans to go out to dinner with friends, but stayed at school all day working, came home and took a nap. Upon waking, I realized I was too tired to do anything...stayed in, ordered pizza with Aud and her pal, Emily, and drank some wine that Hank so generously gave me for the big 3-0. He also (c/o Audrey) gave me these beautiful flowers...they have blossomed in the past day and are absolutely stunning. Fresh flowers always make me happy. Actually, I am really a pretty simple person...I really like simple, thoughtful gestures. I get myself the things I need...and the big things I want...what I want from the people in my life is simple gestures that let me know I am loved and accepted just the way I am. I know I'm not the easiest person in the world...I am fickle, sometimes VERY reclusive, analytical, easily irritated by ignorance...I can be a big pain. But the people I have in my life...well, I know they love me...for all of those annoyances and all of the good stuff, too.

So, all in all, it's been a pretty kick ass week. I feel great about the work I've done this dogs are sleeping right next to me as I write this, and I'm getting ready to watch Law and Order SVU.
