So, the transition from college life to adult life continues, and although it gives me all the liberty I want, it’s still hard to know that so many of my close friends are still back at college, living life without me! At least my concerns about not making enough dollars at Caribou Coffee haven’t come true yet!  I am not exactly living the high life, but my bills are getting paid! Tonight my roommate and I are driving 3 hours to a concert back at my old college, so it gets me thinking a lot.  (hooray for having tomorrow off from work!)  I wonder if I’ll ever feel that same kind of community that I had then again?  I fear I won’t-and that makes me really sad!

party down!

Well, it’s almost Thanksgiving, and I will be spending my first Thanksgiving away from my family this year.  Two of my best friends will be coming in from Seattle and Grand Rapids and we will be attempting to cook our own Thanksgiving meal.  I have no idea how to cook a turkey, so that should prove to be entertaining!  I had to read the back of a can of pumpkin stuff to find out what I need to buy to make a pumpkin pie today, and that seems like it will be really easy.  Anyways, I got the party supplies I needed today at the store, because I figure it’s going to be nuts at Kroger tomorrow.  We were originally planning on going shopping together tomorrow evening, but after seeing how nuts it was in the store today, I decided I would do it on my own before they get here, because I don’t want to face the crowds!  And I hope that my friends DON”T want to go shopping on Friday.  Ick.

Christmas shopping

Today I officially started my Christmas shopping!  I wish money wasn’t an issue for me, because I L-O-V-E buying people gifts that I think they will love.  I get so excited when I buy someone the perfect gift, that sometimes I have trouble watiting until Christmas to actually give it to them!  I equally love wrapping it up nice, or making it into a big presentation with a theme, rather than just a boring gift.  But, anyways, I went to a local craft sale with my mom and had her show me a bunch of earrings that she liked.  It reminded me of this gift my grandmother gave me once.  She had a rare gold coin put on a nice gold chain for me.  I KNOW it is worth quite a bit of money, and I feel bad because it’s something I would never wear.  It’s sort of gaudy, but a nice gift none the less.

Masquerade ball ’06

So, I went to the masquerade ball this weekend down near the campus of the University, and although it got a slow start, it ended up being really fun!  When we got there, we felt stupid because we didn’t really know very many people. But, eventually lots of people started dancing, and it was totally fun!  I went as a “cowabunga dude”, which involved dressing up as a cow, and wearing board shorts, flip-flops a shell necklace and sunglasses.  I think most people thought that was really funny, but in general, I think I thought it was a lot funnier than they did.  Ha!  Let’s see, we also saw people in: pirate clothing, ladybugs, skeletor, drag, Nintendo characters, superman with fake muscles, a ski slope, and a pile of laundry.  I love it when people dress up as a play on words or an inatimate objects rather than something boring.  Now my roommate and I are trying to come up with a good theme for our Christmas party…

It’s not dumb!

Even though my roommate thinks it’s dumb-I have always wanted a pirate shirt. I would especially like one with a skull and cross bones and a pink bow on it, which sort of makes it strangely cutesy. Who knew bones could be cutesy? What is it that is so enticing about pirates? I did a lesson with some little kids once, and as a craft we made a pirate treasure map, and they haven’t stopped talking about it since! We have made loads of cooler projects since then, but whenever they get free time-they always take paper and make a silly treasure map!

I’m going to a costume party this weekend-I’m thinking of being a Holy Cow. Or…I could wear all brown and glue change to my clothes and be an “oil change.” ha.
