Does anyone read my blog anymore?!


Thursday April 21, 2005

I joined the YWCA last night! I walked over, signed up, and worked out for an hour! I felt very comfortable there and am going again tonight! The woman who helped me wore a shirt that said, “Empowering Women and Ending Racism!”

Jake is in Atlanta right now working at the FIRST LEGO World Tournament (teams of kids build robots with legos and compete). Today the kids arrived so I am sure he is running around like crazy right now!

I decided to bike to work this morning…not knowing it was freezing outside! It was so cold going down the hill. Work was okay. The ride up the hill this afternoon was great though.

While sitting in my apartment I have been hearing this guy call out for “Sebastian.” He has been consistently “searching” for about a week now. I think “Sebastian” is a cat. I don’t know if it is someone from my building or a neighboring house…I have tired to help him though. Yesterday I yelled out my window, “Who is Sebastian.” He didn’t answer.

I biked to work yesterday. My first of the season. The traffic heading downtown sucks but I love going down the hill!

We had knitting club at Allisa’s last night. Allisa is working on a baby hoodie, Paige is working on a satchel, and I am working on the same scarf I started last summer. We eventually picked up Amanda along with Miriam and headed out to grab some food and drink. We laugh all the time when we are together…it was a fun night.

When I got home at 12:45 am I still had to watch The Amazing Race. It was amazing as always.

Today I have been working on making my resume only one page. Formatting is ridiculously troublesome. How much is too much information on a resume?

Am I not a true blogger because I haven’t blogged in a week? I was trying to post everyday but sometimes life gets busy…blah blah blah. I will do better!

Last week was fantastic! Here is a quick summary to keep you updated:

Monday: I still had shopping buzz from weekend. Went to (underwear) clearance rack at Marshall Fields.

Tuesday: I listened to author Sarah Vowell (Assassination Vacation; public radio program: This American Life) at the U of M with Allisa and Delip. She was hilarious and I got my book signed! Watched tape of The Amazing Race.

Wednesday: I had all day off. I was dusting the shelves in my apartment and one of my plants fell on my face (it was on the top shelf). Went out to lunch to Good Earth, which has absolutely delicious organic meals. Finally got air in my bike tires! Rode to my aunt and uncles’ and got to talk with my cousin Brad. In evening I worked as a “borrowed partner,” it was so fun and great to see how things work in another Starbucks store! Picked up Punch pizza and watched Sex in the City to end a wonderful day.

Thursday: Attended Pro-choice Rally at the capital with Amanda and Jana! Very exhilarating experience…want to be a lobbyist. Headed over to Uptown to Joel’s, went to an experimental music experience…one instrument included a TV, old movie playing in background. Stokes Pizza with Matt, Jenny and Joel. Forgot to tape Survivor.

Friday: Had to ran to the bus again…even yelled, “Hold the bus!!!” Played with Edmund’s roommates’ puppy.

Saturday: Went to breakfast with Eddie, Allisa, Paige and Luke at Keys. Headed to Mankato to see the family. Rained all day. Mom told me what happened on Survivor.

Sunday: An absolute beautiful day. Went to DQ West, visited Mary, Jake’s mom, had dinner with Mom, Dad and Peter. Headed back to St. Paul, stopped in Northfield to visit Amanda, Matt, Jana, Paige, Luke, Jorum, Steph and baby Cora…had a fire and Luke played the guitar. It was a perfect night.

Today, Monday: This morning I caught the bus at 4:48 am. Found that our store was broken into last night…very violating feeling. Walked to park and enjoyed the sun. Currently am on disc 3 of the third season of Sex in the City.

Oh yeah, Lonely by Akon is my new favorite song. I listen to it on 101.3, it is hip-hop, and I decided to buy in on iTunes.

air in my tires

Monday April 11, 2005

I need to take the front wheel off my bike and cram my entire bike into the back seat of my Toyota Corolla…find a gas station with an operating air pump…and figure out how much air to put in (I have always had a fear of putting too much air in any tire and having it blow up in my face). I also need to put air in my car tires. I could have done this all yesterday, Sunday, but I did not. Instead I went for a walk, picked up a 7-up and disc 1 of the third season of Sex in the City.

It is raining right now. Green buds and flowering trees are happy, as am I.
