College, Paris...?


I apologize for being M.I.A these days, folks.  It's one thing after another over here.  (That makes me sound stressed yet important, doesn't it?  In all actuality, as I said before, I sliced my finger open because I am AWESOME.  And then I went away to school for almost two weeks, where I don't have a second to think, let alone update a blog.  But all's well and I'm home now!)

So starting Monday, I begin my SENIOR year.  I'm really there!  Just two more semesters (and then a brief return the semester after that to present my senior project and get my diploma) and I'll be done.  I can do this.  It's a TON of work (this semester alone I have to complete my math and science requirements, hone a critical essay until it's deemed acceptable by a review board, complete my Writer in the World essay and my Critical Context paper, AND complete my novel--if I can!) but I think if I really, really focus (and do nothing else at all for the next year) I can do it.

Speaking of Doing Nothing Else For The Next Year...I'm thinking of going to Paris in November.  I've never been out of the country (except for Canada, which hardly counts) and it's about damn time I go.  My boyfriend is down with the idea, although he's less interested in Paris.  I might be persuaded to give up Paris and go to Italy instead...provided we go to Pompeii and Herculaneum.  That's been a dream of mine since middle school.

We'll see, though.  I've started putting some money aside and it certainly would be nice to go on a trip--a proper trip.  I've been googling cheap travel tips like mad.  I'll be sure to keep you posted and share my travel advice!

Printrunner.com specializes in different kinds of printing services, not just online sticker printing.  Go check them out!

This sounds like a fun idea to me.  Of course, you could use the stickers as promotional materials to advertise your blog, business, band or website--but wouldn't it also be adorable to include a personalized sticker with your photo (or photos of your children or pets) on it every time you send out a letter or thank you card?
