Joyce, Ari, Cookie (the tiniest housemate), me, and W.

(This picture sorta cracks me up. I am not as tall as I look here - I'm wearing heels and a tall hat, and the three people shorter than me are all between 4'11" and 5'1". I'm only 5'5", and W is 6'4'". We joked that we needed our friend Zach too, who is 7 feet tall, to complete the set of cell phone bars.)

Trip Recap Part 5 and final -- Munich, Salzburg and Rome! )

The super short analysis is that I liked Berlin best, hands down. I also really enjoyed Belfast, Dublin and Munich. London was amazing, but crazy expensive. I was largely indifferent to Brussels, Amsterdam and Glasgow/Edinburgh. I did not like Paris or Rome pretty much at all - they were both great in terms of history, but not enjoyable places to visit.

Okay. I pretty much have my brain back together now. It is good to be home.

Trip roundup begins! I kept a journal of sorts as I went so I could piece this together when I was back. I haven't decided yet whether I want to scrapbook the trip, do a Shutterfly-esque photo book, or both.

Part One - Chicago, Dublin, Belfast. )

Next: Part Two - Glasgow and Edinburgh, London, Paris!

ginger: (school)
Semester starts Monday. Having the summer 'off' has been nice, but I'm looking forward to classes. I'm taking 3 in the Public Health division and one philosophy course this fall. So far I have books for all four classes and calendars of assignments for three, still waiting on the last Public Health one to be activated.

The two PH courses I have info for look like they're going to be right up my alley - no discussion boards, grades based on weekly quizzes, 3 big exams, and two moderately-sized assignments due during the semester. All the quizzes and exams in both classes are due on Wednesdays, which is nice because I never work Tuesday nights at Target. I assume the third will probably be similar in structure to these two, but we'll see.

The Philosophies of Religion course does d-boards, quizzes and exams. However, the instructor is vague. Generally with d-boards (at least in my experience), one has to make a top-level post and comment to a certain number of other people's top level posts per week. The only instruction we're given is to make a top-level post for each board, no more than 50-100 words, and then to "comment regularly" on our classmates' posts. No idea what constitutes "regularly." He also specified in the syllabus that spelling, punctuation and grammar are not important in these discussion boards. :P And the intro-board instructions say something to the effect of "Please introduce yourself and tell us your earliest thoughts on whether God exists." No starting off light there! :)

Well, that's sorted. Lovely chat with the landlady last night, so I will be moving about ten minutes away from my current place late next month.

Now to weed and pack.

ATTENTION [livejournal.com profile] 38 AND [livejournal.com profile] amazonqueenkate.

I feel the need to share this picture with you both.



I assume you can figure out why :)

ginger: (awesome)
Two things I have learned about myself in the last year that I feel need to be reiterated after a lovely discussion last night:

1. I am, simply put, frickin' awesome. My friends know this, agree with me, and treat me accordingly.
2. I am, and should be, and will continue to be, my own first priority.
