A few changes

Now that the semester has ended, I find myself making some decisions and accepting new challenges.

The terrifying unknown of the rent/money situation seems to have alleviated itself for the time being.

I have been picking up shifts at work. Mostly in the morning. Because I work most nights, this means that I have been working a few doubles. They may be exhausting, but my checking account is starting to recover from the drain it experienced last month.

I have a new potential roommate. Rachel. She is a really sweet sister from the University ward. We are currently looking for apartments/duplexes that are on ground levels, $500 and under per month and pet friendly. There are a few options. Some with really pricey pet deposits though. I am hopeful.

Speaking of pets, as of tomorrow, I will be the proud new owner of a young female Yorkie. One of my co-workers needs someone to take her little dog off her hands and I, being the sometimes spontaneous (especially when it comes to pets) person that I am, jumped at the opportunity. I'm getting her for free. I get to keep all the leftover dog food as well as the leash and other things that this co-worker purchased for her. Most pf you will think that this is a bad idea and tell me that I haven't thought this through.

All I have to say to you is...to late!

Maybe it will be a horrible mistake, but I have ALWAYS wanted a Yorkie and up pops an opportunity to have one. I am taking it.

End of the semester grades:

-British Literature: A
-Folklore: A
-Animal Population Dynamics: B
-Practicum: B-
-Ichthyology: D+

Current GPA-2.9 (I was really hoping to get it to a 3.0 this semester. I'll keep my fingers crossed for the next.)

There is obviously something horribly wrong with this picture. Sarah Lambson does not get a D+ as her final grade in anything. But not all hope is lost. As you all know, I have yet to complete this fish experiment. The next (and hopefully successful) trial will be next week. The first week in June. I am very hopeful. I just want to get this over with. With the completion of this project, the paper, and the poster, I hope to bring that D+ to at least a C. A nice round C. Sarah Lambson can get a C and live with it. I REFUSE to take Ichthyology over again because I got a D+.

Next semester schedule:

-Biometrics
-Behavioral Biology
-Behavioral Ecology
-Human Dimensions in Natural Resources
-Russian Literature.

Hm...Maybe I shouldn't have made it so hard on myself. I should have taken easier classes huh? Made it easier to get a 3.0? Yeah. Oh well. I'll get over it.

I'm a bit sleepy.

Zzzzzzzz.......

The plus side of Yorkies: They don't really shed (unlike a certain loveable doofus we all know...Steven, I'm looking your way ;). Also, they look cute.

The down side of Yorkies: They yap. A lot. They are little. Chances are, Alfred is bigger than she is. So you might accidentally crush her under your flip-flops. Also, like Butler, they will inevitably suffer from Little Dog Syndrome.

You have been warned.

That being said, I hope you enjoy your new pet.

See you soon!!!!

Oh, I am DYING for a Yorkie! Yay for you! I was just looking at some adoption sites last night, since our apt. complex just decided to allow dogs. I'm so excited for you! And...they don't ALL yap...my ex-bf had a precious little one who was such a good, pefect little dog. When we broke up, I think I missed the dog more than him! The little guy used to sleep with me and even laid his tiny head on the pillow beside me.
I WANT ONE SO BAD!!

Good luck in Icthyology...and Russian lit! Yipes! One Dostoevsky tome was enough for me.
