Dinner tonight was sweet potatoes with swiss chard and kale. Followed by dairy queen.

I wasn't tracking this week and I am confident the results will show when I weigh in tomorrow. They showed last week and I didn't record my weight. But denial is not just a river in Egypt, and I'll be entering tomorrow's number no matter what, and be tracking despite the wedding.

I did walk a lot this weekend, in the rain, which I think should burn more calories than normal walking. I also went for a rather humbling run yesterday. I'm biding my time hoping that the gym near my house will have a "no joining fee" sale, but if they don't by 10/01 I'm just going to join and pay. The body needs it--with fall in the air I can feel my fat cells just holding on for dear life. My bike needs fixing which is something else that would help shake the fat cells loose if I wasn't too damn lazy to walk my bike to the repair shop. Talk about your self-fulfilling prophecies.

How many bad days make a bad week? Let's hope it's 4, and that tomorrow is actually good, and therefore this week is redeemed.

Here's a picture from a better day than the last few have been:

I finished plan! I did well. I'm having a wonderful time being in sunny vermont with no work to do. I've gone swimming in the river behind my house, taken lovely walks, etc.

I just sent my resume to like 20 administrative assistant jobs. Even the ones that say to have experience, because like, what the hell, I'm smart.

Today's dinosaur comics is RAD!!! Please click the picture to be able to read it. I love futurism and the way T-Rex describes it in the first panel is exactly the way I try to explain it to people, when I do.

I am almost done with one of my Plan papers. I'm on page 18 (of 20). I'm thrilled with this. I'm "mailing" (the day I send my papers to my outside examiner, meaning the day I can't/won't write anymore) on the 26th. I still don't know who my outside examiner will be, but whoever it is will be great, I'm sure.

I'm happy with the way my pictures are coming out, and I'm super-excited for my gallery show, which I am sharing with two REALLY cool people, and it's going to be AMAZING.

I am NOT HAPPY with reports that we'll be getting AT LEAST a foot of snow tomorrow. It is literally the middle of April. The time for snow to be still on the ground has past. Snow falling from the sky is beyond unacceptable. A FOOT? I'm going to have a heart attack. I can't STAND this never-ending winter thing. It is HORRIBLE.

ALSO HORRIBLE: I did not get even an interview for the Rome Center. Wow. I cried a little bit now I'm mostly just excited about planning for grad school and the whole fabulous rest of my life.

But I have some amazing people in my life supporting me right now, and I know I'm going to get it done and be able to lay out in the sun all day, drinking beer and wearing dresses. I'm looking forward to the beer-and-dresses part of all of this.

It did snow, it snowed A LOT and it's not exactly melting. It is throwing me off in a big way.

I'm starting to freak out a little, but only a little.

It might snow a foot tonight, but the this is a sure sign of spring!!

Monday, April 2

the students all came back and brought the wind and rain and fog with them. Last week's quiet and clear blue skies feel almost like a dream.
Opening day and Easter mean it's springtime. I am going to graduate and it is going to be amazing. I feel amazing--strong and ready.
