better place

I’m sorry I wasn’t there when you had to go, but I know you’re alright now. I’ll miss your bark and your sneaking onto the couch that you were perfectly allowed to use. I’ll miss your chasing Gizmo through the house (I’m not sure how much he’ll miss it, though). I’ll miss your perfectly gray coat. I’ll miss that little ball of fuzz that would collect on your slip collar. I’ll miss the way you sat on furniture or the steps. I’ll miss the way you chased invisible squirrels. I’ll miss the way you begged to go outside to eat the snow. I’ll miss being greeted by you. You always knew when I was coming back. I’m sad I didn’t get say “good-bye” and I’m sorry I couldn’t be there for you.

You’re going to be a hard dog to beat, Fletchie.

the state of things

I live in a place where it snows, quite a bit, actually, and I love it. (It’s the wind that sucks.)

Classes are getting to a point where we’re ready to take exams. I think my professors are trying to get the exams out of the way before Winter Carnival next week. I was going to participate in the VITA (volunteer income tax assistance) program, but I got a job instead. I start on Saturday. This will be my first job that has anything to do with accounting and I’m nervous, but pretty excited to get hands-on experience. I haven’t knitted much, but that’s part of my plan to help me stay on track. I’ll be really busy with a part-time job and school. I’ve been using C’s laptop because mine has been having some issues that I don’t have the know-how to fix. I’m still taking photos, but they’re fairly boring because it’s usually dark out by the time I get home and unwind.

Just a little something to stay updated. I’ll try to come back with photos of the statues from this year. I’ve volunteered to help with one of them during the all-nighter. That should be interesting, but maybe I can just play the role of photographer. ;)

Where Am I?
