Pumpkin Goop and Other Such Related Events

The cold wind blows across the tops of the ever more soup-esque, dead pumpkins as a tumbleweed ambles by... AND SCENE!

I know what you're thinking and yes, they are still there. Even now. Like you've never wanted to see how long it would take for your holiday decorations to just do away with themselves on their own.

It's been a crazy couple months. Let's see...

  • I went to see Say Anything in St. Pete in mid-November. Where I took these crazy-awesome photos:

  • My brother and sister and their respective families came down and spent Thanksgiving at my parent's new place. We then returned the favor by going to them for Christmas.

too many nephews... too many nephews.
I spent most of Christmas shooting these little things in the chest with my Nerf rifle, but they just kept coming back!

  • Around the 5th of December I found this little guy on the side of the expressway. He now belongs to my roommate.

I named him Bug.

Let me see, hmm... there was something else... oh yeah...

  • I dropped out of school. That's right.

While I should be preparing for a new semester I instead come to you from my rolly chair, clad in my "I'm pretty fly" PJ's while periodically munching on cold, cajun rice.

I'm not saying that I won't go back, I am saying that I will not be going back to the same school. I'm going to take a couple semesters off, make some cash, do something independently and see where I land.

My current thinking may have me moving out of state to try and go to what I hope will be a better learning environment. Somewhere where I don't feel like I'm just doing the same things I did when I was a Digital Design T.A. back in high school, ya know? Kinda sorta wanted to learn things, anyway, lesson learned and I must say I feel better than I have in months, like I actually enjoy stuff or something. Weird.

Anyway, that's where I'm at. If you've read this update, thank you kindly. I didn't have internet for most of those two months, but that's fixed now so things should be returning to normal.


  1. Those pictures are great! I've missed seeing you around.

  2. Wow! How brave to try something new!

    Also, I totally did that head-tilt-to-the-side to look at that pic of you all sideways. You're welcome.

  3. Good luck with finding a school where you fit in better then the one you're at now.

  4. you.quit.school.

    well. i'm not your momma. but i could be. so. i'll just say this. do what you need to do. just remember to write (me) often. and don't go walking around in your panties. unless you have a thick jacket.

  5. Not every school/cirriculum is right for everyone...I learned that when I started the BSN program at the local college.

    I think it's smart to use this time to find what makes you happy, b/c the chances of you having this opportunity later are slim to none.

    Good luck & keep smiling!

  6. When you find the right school, you'll know. How? Bug won't lift his leg on the brochure.

  7. That is the cutest dang dog ever...lucky Bug!

    Congrats on making your big decision. Sometimes you just need some breathing room. My brother is 30 and is just going back. (Don't wait that long!)
