School, glorious school!!

And thus, another semester has started. I am particularly busy this semester already and am wondering if it will ever get better. On a brighter note, after this semester, I will only have two more semesters left until I graduate. What are you doing with your life after graduation, you ask? Well, since you inquired, I'll tell you what I'm not going to do!

  • Animal Trainer - I love animals, but feel I lack the necessary qualities (read: patience) to make this a life-long career. However, I have taught Truman how to sit on command, so I'm not entirely ruling this out.
  • Professional Computer Geek -I am not talented in the art of computer. In fact, that's one of the many things I love about Matt: I don't have to worry about my computer being broken again. I feel that if someone were to ask me to fix their computer, I might bring it back to them worse than it was to begin with.
  • Sushi Chef - I do love the sushi. I tried making it at home once... I failed miserably. I just can't get the roll tight enough to hold all that deliciousness inside. I think I'll leave the rolling to the professionals.
  • Hair Dresser - This, as a career option, is out. As any body who's gotten their hair cut by me before can tell you, I just don't have a talent for it (Do you remember those awful bangs, Mary? I'm so sorry).
  • Ninja - I am quite possibly one of the clumsiest people I know. It's not that I don't want to be a ninja, I just believe I don't possess the necessary skills (such as stealth, killing and stealthy killing) nor could I hope to ever master those skills, this late in life. But I aspire to the same level of ninja greatness as the following:

House Warming Party

On Labor Day, we had a house-warming party for a bunch of our church friends. It was fun! We had Hawaiian haystacks for dinner. Funnily enough, two real Hawaiians were in attendance and had no idea what they were about to eat. :) I'm pretty sure it's called "Hawaiian" because it has pineapple in it... Any who, for those of you who haven't had the privilege of having one, a Hawaiian Haystack is a mixture of ingredients assembled by the person who is to consume it (so that if it stinks, it's your fault, not the cooks!). Typically, it starts with a bed of rice and then some type of chicken and sauce mixture (I used cream of chicken soup and milk to make mine) and then toppings including, but not limited to, pineapple, mandarin oranges, chow mien noodles, almonds, green onions, and coconut. Several people expressed hesitation about what they were about to eat, one of them being a very picky southerner. She loved it. I know it sounds crazy that all those things would work together, but they do!! It's delicious and so easy (especially if the chicken is pre-cooked)!

One of the reasons for the party was to give us motivation to unpack those last few boxes and put up pictures. I have to say, the house looks pretty good, thanks to the decorating help from Blayke. She came all the way from Charlotte to help. :) The pictures instantly made it feel homey and more like our space.

Well, it's been a nice break, but I have to get back to my organic chemistry homework... *ugg*
