It's actually almost time to start making this thing about the zoo again! I found out late last night, after what was yet another dreadful November 13th, that I will be working at the zoo again next semester :) Not on hoofstock though, because they're combining it with elephant, but that's probably a good thing so I can become more diversified for when I have to find a real zoo job in 6 months
Yeah, 6 months....I graduate in exactly 6 MONTHS!!! Class requirements met, paperwork sitting on my "desk" to fill out to get my diploma, everything is ready to go. It was a very satisfying feeling to walk into my advisor's office, and she says, I need to give you graduation stuff.
I haven't posted on here in a while because nothing's really been going on. Life is consumed by drumline, and this year has been extra stressful. Playing with Calexico at Rialto on Day of the Dead was easily the coolest thing I've ever done in drumline....outside of the Holiday Bowl trip last year. And since the Pac-10 is so ridiculously weird this year, the Holiday Bowl looks fairly likely again, which is perfectly fine with me :) But if we ended up in Vegas, and we played SDSU, I wouldn't even really know who to root for haha. And the Aztecs definitely look better than us, especially since they almost won at #3 TCU last night. Gronkowski just got his third TD of the game for the Pats against the Steelers too...I wish he was here. The Oregon game would be 1 vs 2 I think if he were still around.
Last night, Lane Kiffin ran by me while I was on the field, and I thought to myself, how can so many people hate this guy? There's just this vibe coming off of him that says that he's gotta be great at what he does, and given that I've only seen one game of his in person, and it was USC owning us in all facets of the game last night, I would say he's probably at least ok at coaching. And that Matt Barkley guy...he's gonna be like Carson Palmer...good for a little while, then not good anymore haha
One month from tonight I get to see my friend who moved to Sacramento for the first time since she left in June. Talking to her twice a week really helps life stay in check, and knowing that she'll be here in a month is such a relief. I just want this month to go by fast. One last football game in Arizona Stadium....except it's on a Thursday, which is kind of lame for a last home game, but I'll get over it. And two presentations, two papers, and tons of tests until then. Plus a possible assignment to preceptor a bio lab next semester...it's gonna be a long month, but hopefully positive
And while the seagulls are crying, we fall but our souls are flying
