I don't really have much to say, but I really feel like I need to get into the habit of writing often.  Making the effort to write every day or so, I'm hoping, will help me to get my creative juices going.

Not to mention, as much as I'd like to be in bed so that I can work on getting the house cleaned tomorrow, the neighbors are playing their music so loud I could totally tell you what song it was over the tv and other ambient noises if I listened to obnoxious, beatless rap.  And since it's a Friday night I have nobody to call to make them stfu.  This is the biggest thing I'm excited about when it comes to moving out of here - I'm desperate to be in an area where I don't have to listen to another person's music blaring into my space at any and all hours of the day and night.  I'm also excited that we'll be in a very quiet neighborhood that doesn't get any through traffic; therefore, no cars blaring said obnoxious, beatless rap at any and all hours of the day and night.

I'm trying to think of what I am going to write for The Blog.  I haven't worked on content since May, and I feel really bad for it.  I wrote out the mission statement in the opening post, but I need to generate real content for it.   I'm also looking to bring the whole thing up to speed, but I need a camera in order to get the relevant pictures.  Honestly, I think the biggest thing holding me back from doing that is laziness.  It seems like so much and I dread working through all of it.  I'm sure as soon as my space is clean, I'll be able to do it nema problema.

I think that's pretty much all for now, gonna go back to netflix and dreaming of baking cookies and trying some new recipes.

First things first, I had my Spring Break and managed to get really sick just afterward and get myself in a mountain of backwork and three missed quizzes from school.  That really sucks ass, especially since I really really do not need the added stress on top of them deciding that at 20 years old I'm no longer a dependent and that I didn't sign my master promissory note 2 years ago.  Even though, obviously, I did sign it since I have been getting financial aid for two years now and I'm a dependent according to FAFSA/the guhment till I'm 25.  Shit.  I'd be really angry if the ladies in the FinAid department were so nice.

Had a great Easter and a great Equinox.  Been doing all kinds of things.  Made kraslice/pisanky - very frustrating, but very worthwhile.

The biggest news from the past month or so has been the start of a new back yard project.  We're growing as much of our own food this year as possible, and we're trying to reform the way we take care of the house and other aspects of our lives as much as possible too, in order to be more "green" and eco-friendly.  Really, the point of the journey is to get back to good sense; we want to do things in the simplest, most straightforward way that we can manage, with as little reliance on outside forces as possible.  Also, we have a growing suspicion aimed at the chemical additives in our food.  We're sure some of them are safe - but you know those toaster strudels?  Yeah, the Partner eats the Hel out of them, and as it turns out, they're stuffed full of anti-freeze.  Like the stuff in your car.  Yuck.  And I can make better shtrudl'a anyhow.

Anyways, all these lifestyle changes won't be made unless they're given some kind of deadline, so I've started a blog to chronicle the whole deal.  I figure if we set ourselves up in order to have some kind of post on a weekly basis, whether it's a how-to, some of our research into our food or something else around the house or in our lives, or a recipe, or just some pictures and thoughts about our ever-growing garden, then that will add an extra incentive to do something new at least every week.  Sounds like a plan, no?  Also, it will give me some writing and editing experience which will be immensely useful, since the career path that seems most attractive to me at the moment involves lots of editing, some writing, and picture taking.
