Its been pointed out that most people I know on here don't realize that I'm pretty much only on Facebook now. (Stefanie Gasko - add me!)

In anycase, I'm moving to Allendale for the next three years. Yup, renting an apartment for year-round usage. ^^

I don't have a car anymore. It took a shit in Walker, MI and decided to stay there.

This leads to me not knowing when I'll get to see everyone I know in RL again. But, I do have room for people to come visit me!

Go to CBeech.com/Allendale.htm to see some of the pics of where I'm staying. ^^ It's pretty.

Anything else exciting?
I'm probably going to be having a Pampered Chef party. Let me know if ya wanna come. Aunts and relatives will probably be buying us stuff, and if you buy some stuffs then I'll have more credits to get some free things for my new place! That would be very exciting.

I'm out of the shithole with my GPA! ^^ Thanks Macomb for giving some easy classes to transfer and raise that back up! Teehee. But I worked hard and I did it! I'm rather proud of myself for pushing through and getting it done with all the obstacles, as everyone is telling me that I should be.

I have some manga for sale up on Amazon, because I'm trying hard to get my first month rent without straining my dad who just filed for bankruptcy. So, if you're interested in the following titles, I can take them down and sell 'em to ya instead. It would really help me out. ^^

Naruto #1,4,5
Saiyuki #1
Wish #1
Someday's Dreamers #1,2
Broken Angels #1
I Wish... #1

Kit was mowing his field lawn and suddenly stopped. He came running inside to me claiming he almost had a heart attack... then hands me one of the most beautiful and surprisingly docile garter snakes I've ever seen.

She's currently wrapped around my arm as I type.

Going to put her back once he's done with mowing. Wouldn't want her in the way, and for sure wouldn't want to keep a wild animal out of its natural environment.

Really big :D today.

I'm done with finals. That's it. Homeward bound tomorrow.

Gotta start packing up my dorm. Last night in the place I've called home for the past 9 months. Lots of good memories here. Good times with friends over, boyfriend staying for weeks at a time, lots of studying and chilling and enjoying the trees out my window. My new place is a single-person... I'll be alone without a roomie, and parts of that sound nice, but I think I'll miss Trang a bit. No trees out my window either... but at least I won't have to hide from fireworks going off every Friday night during football season.

But I made it. I went through a whole year here. I fucked up the first semester, I didn't know what to expect and I put myself in a state of the worst depression I've felt in over a decade since I tried to kill myself. But I made it. I raised my grades. I'm coming back next year. Kit will be here, too.

Maybe now that I'm more accustomed to it all, I'll actually put in a real effort to join clubs. Anthro, Archae, Geology, Anime, maybe even Alpha Phi Omega. I kinda really want the last one, ya know?

My dad and Kit will be here tomorrow morning to help load up some cars and get me back to Detroit. I think I'm gonna miss being here a lot. On the other hand, I want to go to the D-Zoo, Stony Creek, and just hand out with people I haven't been able to see as much. And well, JAFAX is just around the corner. I'll be back on campus soon enough.

Yeah, I'm a little ahead of myself. But every girl dreams right?

I'm graduating from GVSU in Fall 2012.

Then what? I might go work with the Peace Corps in Belize, where I'm already going to be spending a summer studying Anthro abroad. I might find some Archaeological field work to jump start my career.


I can move to Oregon. Portland to be precise.

Why? Oh so many reasons...

1. Portland State University - Where I want to go to Grad School. (For a Masters, ~$35,000 total + major emphasis on Native Americans.)

2. For over 50 years, Portland (and Oregon) have been strongly Democratic. The city currently has a very openly gay mayor. They strongly support the arts and nature in the city with many museums, parks, arboretums, surrounding nature reserves, and the zoo. They are the 2nd most eco-friendly city, only to Reykjavík, Iceland.

3. The summer highs are in the 80s, the winter lows are in the high 30s. Low precipitations rates. The only natural disasters they see is from the far away active volcanoes that don't mean much more than ash when they actually do erupt. Doesn't that sound perfect for me?

4. The State of Oregon hires archaeologists to work on their team regularly. The biggest area of job openings in Portland and all of Oregon is in Natural Resources Management, Kit's field.

5. Kit and I have already said Oregon is where we want to live... On top of me now finding all of this out, especially grad school, I almost can't contain myself.

On the other hand, Peace Corps will pay my student loans for me if I work for them... And I would love to be in Belize. Again, so would Kit... The country is rich with Archaeology for me, and it is dedicated to sustainable development and preservation of nature and wildlife.

Something tells me that I'm going to end up doing both... This isn't just a dream. It's an ambition and goal. And anyone who knows me also knows how hard I can push to get what I want.

The campus is very happy... and party party party...

And I'm stuck alone, inside, with a small quantity of alcohol left over from when Stina came to visit.

This bodes not well...

I feel pretty much raped in the face at the moment.

Over the next 4 weeks I have 40pgs worth of papers to do (That's 6 papers in 4 classes, and weekly reading responses). All (except the weekly ones) including on-site first hand research. Fuck Fuck Fuckity Fuck.

On the upside... I'm getting at least a B+ or higher in all my classes as of midterms. A's in two of them. Woot woot.

This is for Mike (and anyone else who wants to...) cuz I know he's lurking and reading.
Hope you enjoy reading that!
