Baby Shower

Megan's baby shower was yesterday. A lot of people came, though not all came who were invited. It was ok, though, because if even one more person came, there wouldn't have been room for us all. Megan is looking very pregnant these days. Only a month and a half left! It was so good to get to see her again.

Big Brother in Texas

I don't really understand how one state can set the standards for textbooks for all of the United States, but here it is! Revised history at work, just like in 1984. Some one else commented that reality is liberal (source amnesia). It may be the only way conservatives have to make sure they continue to enjoy power through the future - by controlling the minds of the future via revisions of history. I am starting to think there really is no hope for this country - or humanity.

Making baby shower invitations is much easier than printing out envelopes. That's how it turned out anyway. I got so frustrated trying to get my computer to print the envelopes. It turns out you really can't print one just to see how it goes. You have to print them all and hope for the best.

So, The baby shower is coming soon, as is the baby. I wish I could spend more time with my daughter during her pregnancy. Seeing her once or twice a month doesn't cut it. But that's how it goes.

I have two presentations to do next week. I haven't even read for the one one on Wednesday, but the one one Monday just needs to be sorted out and put on power point. Then, the week after is spring break for me. During spring break I have to prepare a presentation for physio - but I think I can handle that. What is pressing is that I have to read a book and do a presentation on it, and I have to do a serious research project and a presentation before the end of the semester. I have been so busy, and it doesn't seem to be slowing down any times soon. I hope I can get through this school stuff so I can get on with my life. Pocatello sucks.

I was late paying Zach's rent this month - it's hard to do. If I forget on the appropriate weekend it gets bad. They started harassing him and threatening to evict him, even though they know I pay the bill. They were being mean.

These little updates are kind of boring, I think. I am hoping to have some time to write something of substance soon. I will definitely share the book I am reading, and I would really like to share some things I learned about confirmation bias and goal setting and how when we set a goal we look for and see things that help us to get to our goal. I read the Alchemist a couple of years ago, and it has this stuff written all over it. I really want to write it.

I need to do my art too. I really miss it. I haven't been able to get my piano from the old house to the new house and that bugs me. I wonder if I can even play my songs anymore. Hopefully I really can get my masters in just two years. I can do one more year of this, but I doubt I have more than that in me. I'm tired and I want to relax in my new house.

I guess this is kind of a downer post, but that is just because I struggled so much making envelopes. I should have just written them by hand. I am trying to transition from that to doing my presentations - I don't know if that is really going to happen. We'll see.
