new year!

  • Spent New Year in New Haven with some of my favorites. 
  • Finished February recruiting unscathed at work, and currently counting down the minutes until summer recruitment begins in a few weeks
  • Got the flu even though I actually got the flu shot this year
  • Wrote a guide to filling out the AmeriCorps online application that our State Program Director liked!
  • Found the speaker for our Public Speaking statewide training next month!
  • May have also gotten reduced priced lunches for that event!
  • Filling out grad apps. One down (Brandeis), one to go (UConn)
  • RA Dickey traded to the Blue Jays. At least he can wear his Jose Reyes shirt again without it being too weird (this also means I’m rooting for the Jays to win the AL East this year)

Wake me up when November ends

  • Sandy destroyed my monthly VISTA meeting plan, but also gave me 4.5 days off work.
  • Studying for the GREs is, strangely enough, giving me some purpose. I forgot how much I liked school-type things.
  • I’m trying to balance my work life with my Alyssa-time  with my social life. I’ve been focusing far too much on the first two.
  • My little brother is interviewing at Holy Cross tomorrow. I feel super old now!
  • RJ Evans is playing for UConn and holding his own! Can’t wait to watch a little bit of HC play with my second favorite college basketball team this year!
  • Three day weekend this week, and three days off work coming soon for Thanksgiving. I guess November isn’t that bad.
  • I got to see my favorite stranger (Sarah) and favorite New Haven resident (Carrie) last week and it was fabulous! I love my HC friends! And also New Haven. Seeing them totally made my week.  And life.
  • Is it weird that I think the skeletons found under the tree on the New Haven green during Sandy are super cool?
  • I got two more Sailor Moon manga in the mail on Saturday.
  • I really like using the food processor.
  • I still hate Thanksgiving.
