feeling good

life is going very well.

I had a meeting with Dr. Lee and it seems I am in a pretty good position to get everything i want out of life. Namely to report/copy-edit for a while then go to college and teach for some more time. It makes me happy. I am sending in my applications for summer internships tomorrow (for the Florida Times-Union in Jacksonville, FL and to the Virginian-Pilot in Norfolk, Va.). Both are a step up from the internship at the Daily Press and are really nice papers. Hopefully one of those will pan out and I will get another experience that will send me off on my way to several years in a good job at a good paper and then to grad school. woooo

Dr. Lee was also very proud of the paper this week (as i was). It was like the papers from last year. Good fairly clean copy and a nice layout. Yay!

Now I just need to get through the rest of this semester. I have some plans for being productive over break too. Hopefully they will pan out.

Winter's Here!:

I just had to post a blog whilst I am still relatively sane and in a fairly giddy mood because of the success of the Captain's Log's layout night (pick up a copy if you are in the area at any time).

In my quest for some such item of interest, I found this amusing website that only served to increase my happiness in the entirety of this night:
The Church of Google is a satirical site that seeks to prove the irrationality of religions by putting forth a new one: that of Googlism. The page discusses how Google really is a god (a female one at that) and is the only that has 9 scientifically proven pieces of evidence for that conjecture. It is highly amusing. Enjoy...

Norman Mailer died last Saturday so I will leave you with a famous quote that sums up life in a nutshell, as he was so fond of doing:
"Every moment of one's existence one is growing into more or retreating into less. One is always living a little more or dying a little bit."

It's fairly cold out. That's nice cause I get to break out my nice sweaters, but at the same time, its cold!

Found a really cool website where you can draw your own snowflakes. Its awesome! Try it out.

I want to be a pirate too!:
