Where did the time go?

Tomorrow is the Agricultural and Life Sciences Career Fair at my University. There is expected to be close to 150 companies there all looking for potential employees, 10 of which are looking for someone with my major and hopefully at least 1 that will want to hire me. As I lay here thinking about the career fair, I can't help but get a case of the "When did..."s

  • When did the leaves change colors and start falling? Most of the trees are bare now
  • When did this chill set in? Don't get me wrong, I love it!
  • When did all the fall shows start? I'm so behind, AHHHH!
  • When did all these fruit flies decide to make our apartment their home? Mi casa is so not su casa
  • When did my little brother turn into a young man? This big sister could not be more happy and proud of what he has become and his life is still just beginning.
  • When did my college classes go from regurgitation to applying what I learn to real life situations? I'll be happy with a B in that class
  • When did companies actually complain about the persuasiveness and communication skills of graduates from my college? I have never heard of any complaints, in all honesty I think most of this class is a waste of time. But it lets me talk about what I'm passionate for.
  • When did registering for classes get here so soon? Here's to hoping I get in the classes I want :s
  • When did it get down one class and 6.5 credits standing between me and that diploma? This is why I thought adding a Food Science minor would be no big deal. Yea riiiiiigggghhhht...
  • When did the real world start knocking so loud? It seems like just yesterday that I was graduating high school.

Wish me luck tomorrow!

Tuesday Hideout

Tuesdays are the longest day of the week starting at 8 a.m. and going until 6 p.m. Thank goodness that I have breaks in there or I would be unbearable (although I'm pretty grumpy by the end of the day anyway but who isn't really?).

Every Tuesday I have to grab lunch at one of the on campus cafes most of the time it ends up being a beverage and something simple like a granola bar or string cheese. But today I was able to sit down and enjoy a lunch for a chance at my favorite place. There is one building, and one spot in particular, that you can find me almost everyday. (I should just put a bed somewhere since I'm there more than my apartment it seems.) And today I got to thinking...

Kildee Hall is the Animal/Dairy Science location on campus although almost every introductory course is held in the big lecture hall. Ever since I came for a visit in high school I have loved this building, especially for its huge cow mosaic wall. Sophomore year is when I decided to explore this building more, mostly out of boredom between classes, and that's when I found it, the perfect location to "get away."

On the second floor there is a table, some chairs and even a couple couches at this juncture where the original meets the addition of the building. It's a very open area that hardly gets any foot traffic, there is an entire wall of windows that lets the warm sunshine in, and you can still hear the hustle and bustle of the students below trying to make it to class on time. I like to think of it as a place I can hear the heartbeat that makes up Kildee. Here I am able to study, do some homework, talk with friends and even take a nap to catch up on some sleep. Plus it has an amazing view of the cow mosaic. I'm really going to miss this place after graduation.

Cards, Cards, Cards

As you can see school has been keeping quite busy with tests, projects, homework and I could go on, but I won't. However, I have managed to squeeze a little bit of crafting mostly out of necessity (I know way too many people born in September and October). Here are a few of my favorite cards I have made.

Wish I could stay longer but I have to get back to studying for a few things. Hopefully I can get back soon and share the two new layouts I have done. Until then I will try an pop in and share some things that have made this semester entertaining. Stay crafty!
