I have been really out of the loop this week. Yesterday, I got home from work at 3:30 and went to sleep. I didn’t wake up again until 6am for work again. I was just so out of it and, to be honest, so down in the dumps that I just let all that time pass while I stayed in dreamland.
I am feeling a bit better today. I am a bit frustrated because I realized today that I don’t know when my last day of work will be. I am not sure if I am needed until the last day of classes next Tuesday or the last day of final exams the following Friday, the 25th. I would really like to know so I inquired both yesterday and today but I bet I won’t find out for the next couple days. It usually takes a lot of asking around to figure out something like that.
My parents are going away this weekend and they are entrusting me with watching their things! I’m going to be housesitting while they are away. I am going to take this opportunity to use their pool a lot and take Baylee (their adorable golden retriever) on lots of fun walks. Oh, and I am also going to take a lot of pictures hopefully. I have gotten back into the swing of blogging. Now I need to get back into the swing of taking pictures, too!
Today I went to my friend Elaine’s college graduation party. I had a pretty nice time despite the DJ being way too loud. I felt like an old lady but the bass was shaking the entire room. The cups at the tables the furthest away from the DJ had the liquid actually moving in them. That’s a bit too much, in my opinion. It was still a very nice party, though, and I was really proud of my friend.
One thing I was upset about was that I brought my camera and took not one photo. The place was on a beautiful location that overlooked the water and even as we were leaving the sun was setting over the water and my camera was right there in my bag being idle. In the party, I had plenty of opportunities to snap a picture of people but I just didn’t. I really need to try and sort out what my problem is. I think I have been a bit discouraged with my photographs lately and it has made me not want to take any at all. I expected to be better than I am at taking photos now, I think. Practice makes perfect, though, and I need to keep reminding myself of this fact and keep trying.
It feels good to be blogging again… even if it’s just a little tidbit each day. I really missed it. I caught up on a lot of other people’s blogs over the past few days, too. I didn’t leave as many comments as I usually do but I read almost every post I read through google reader and left some spare comments here and there. I had over 1,000 blog posts that I had missed due to my falling off the face of the internet for a while there but I think I’m getting back into the swing of things now.
I lead the song at Mass at my Church. Recently, I have been asked to sing at other events such as weddings and funerals since so many people have complimented my voice. Today I sung at a wedding at my Church. It was really nice and I had a nice time.
After Mass, I went over to my parent’s house to help my sister learn how to use her new zune mp3 player. It is always a little bit frustrating because my family is so low tech (even my sister) but I am always willing to try and help them with their many little computer emergencies.
The problem today was that my sister decided to use some random cable to plug her zune into the computer. Being that it was jammed into the device and didn’t actually fit, the computer obviously didn’t recognize it. I tried not to laugh and told her (and my parents) that she needed the correct cable and that you can’t just plug anything that you can make fit into the device.
I tried to find a replacement cable since my sister lost the actual cable that went with her zune. I hope it is able to be shipped by the time they leave for their trip. They are driving down to Virginia at the end of this week.
