Day 21- White Flaky Stuff

First real snowfall of the season!  And it took them at least 3 hours to start clearing it.

Day 20- Bombardment

First day of classes back from Thanksgiving break and oh my goodness do I have a lot to do.  Magnified by the fact I couldn't do anything over the break without a computer.  Oh, and I found out I have two group presentations on Thursday, not just one.  So just keep it coming, semester, I will kick your butt!

Day 19- Fly Away Home

Well the relatives slept over again last night, meaning I woke up to a cutie pie all over again!  Today was also my last day at home and I flew back to school in the early evening.  But while I was home I had enough time to finish three more ornaments, help setup the Christmas tree, and pick up my new laptop, hurray!

Day 18- Star Gazing

Today's ending was really cool because I was able to setup a display of the paper ornaments I make in a local shops window!  The shop is owned by my mom's friend and she was kind enough to agree to let me sell these ornaments.  I hope it goes well.  There is promise, though, as my mom sold 5 at a craft fair two weeks ago.

Day 17- Do You Measure Up?

So my brother, sister-in-law and niece are staying over until at least Saturday, if not Sunday.  Amanda (sister-in-law) works closer to our house than theirs and with the early hours she's working because of Black Friday and all it was just easier for them to stay with us for a couple of days.  Which is working out wonderfully because I have a lot of time to catch up with them, particularly the little one.  And boy does she like getting into everything...

Day 16- Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!  I spent the day with my lovely parents and my Uncle Steven.  Later on in the evening my brother, sister-in-law, and niece arrived as well.  My niece was even kind enough to share her bottle with my dad... It was a great day!

Day 15- All Smiles

Today I opened the pictures that my dad picked up for me about a week ago.  I accidentally sent them to our local CVS, instead of the one near campus.  Anyways, I opened them and I was expecting three 5x7s of some nature pictures I took about a month ago.  Well I got two of them.  The third was what had to be the cutest mix up ever...

Just look at those cheeks!  These little ones are simply too cute!  And in case you were wondering, I did go back and they kindly re-printed my order and I now have all three of my desired pictures.


Okay ladies and gents,

I have to postpone my picture a day blogging mission for just a few days.  I will continue to take pictures, but my laptop officially died last night and I will not be able to upload anything until I get a new one.  I'm more than a little angry about this.  Losing access to a laptop or computer is a horrible thing, as some of you have probably experienced.  The only upside to this is that Black Friday is only two days away.  Luckily they can now transfer all of my documents, etc. onto the new computer.   I hope everyone has a nice Thanksgiving!  And try not to hurt anyone on Black Friday, it could just be a college girl trying to get a new laptop to replace her dead one.

Day 14- Takeoff

Finally made it home- YAY!  Spent a full 5 hours on the train and at the airport and on the plane in order to make it here.  Would have taken just as much time to drive.  Oh well.  I did manage to take a few pictures along the way...

 First from the airplane...
 And then...
oh my god watch out it's a Space Cat!!!

Day 13- I'm Coming Home

Well today was a super busy day- class, work, more class, studying for my night class.  And then after all of that... packing!  Because I'm going home for Thanksgiving tomorrow, yay!

The stuff on the left is mine and the stuff on the right is my roommate's.  She currently lives in New Mexico so she's taking more stuff home.

Day 12- Not a Penny More

Celebrated an early Thanksgiving dinner with some members of The Wildlife Society today.  Thanks for a delicious meal ladies!

Day 11- A New Brand

So Delaware Valley College is going through a lot of changes right now.  Last year they initiated a brand change for the college.  They are also in the process of becoming a university as well as building an additional building or two.  As a part of the brand change they posted a lot of banners on the light posts all over campus.  Personally I hate them.  Every time I see one I have to read it the way it's typed out, which isn't the way it's supposed to be pronounced.  For example:  "Do whAT's RIght" on multiple lines and in different text sizes.  In addition to that some of them really don't make much sense.  I saw the following banner today while leaving one of the academic buildings.

Day 9- Marvin the Martian

We went to a wildlife rehabilitation center today and made a nice friend by the name of Marvin.  He's a black vulture who was released but decided to hang around the center for a while.  Oh, and he likes shoes.

Day 8- What is Love?

This is the beautiful face I wake up to every morning.  Love you Fluffy.

Day 7- Like Opening A Can of Tuna

Some of you may think that I don't ever leave my room.  And that would be an incorrect statement.  I don't, however, like being out in the cold all that much so the pictures of outside locations will be limited as we head into winter.  So instead I'm spending a lot of my time in my room with my roommate, Kayla.  Today we watched S.W.A.T. for no good reason.  The results:

"Oh no, he's a loose cannon cop who doesn't play by the rules"

"The best music since Training Day"

Day 6- Check Out My Package

Two boxes going to two very different places.  Can't wait for the results!

Day 5- Tragedy in the Yard

Animals frolicking across a textbook page.  A typical study session in Wildlife Management.

Day 4- Dut Dut Out

I spent the entirety of today with the Central Bucks South High School Marching Titans.  They competed in the USBands National Championships in Annapolis, MD.  The first picture below is the screen when they marched onto the field.  As you can see the name was misspelled. They changed that very quickly though.  The second picture is the group setting up for their professional pictures just after the performance.  All in all they placed 2nd (out of 15) in Class 4A.  Drums won their caption and colorguard placed second.  It was the best show I have seen the guard perform.  I am extremely proud of these 25 girls and want to thank them for a wonderful season.

Day 3- We Are the Titans

I spent the majority of this evening with the marching band I'm teaching this season, Central Bucks South Marching Titans (Warrington, PA) and so decided to base today's pictures on their performance at the football game.  In fact, I am traveling with them to Annapolis, MD tomorrow where they will compete in USBands National Championships.  Good luck South!

Day 2- Brown Fluff

Whew!  I almost forgot to take a picture today.  I remembered it this morning, packed my camera into my backpack and everything.  And then proceeded to forget about it at every place I thought would have good pictures.  But that's okay because my room has plenty of interesting things to photograph.

30 Day Activities

Today I watched a relatively old TED Talks video, from July 2011, called "Try Something New for 30 Days" presented by Matt Cutts.  It was short and sweet, only 3:27 long, but Matt did a really good job of marketing this idea of 30 day activities.  I also read a post from The Buried Life (worth looking into if you don't know who they are) about 20 minutes earlier titled "19 Things to Stop Doing In Your 20s".  You can find the list at the bottom of the page.  These two posts combined motivated me to start a 30 day project of my own.  I decided to start simply, with something I enjoy doing.  So I chose photography.  It is my mission that between now and December 6 I will take at least one photo every day and post it here.  I have been seriously slacking on my posting this fall and most of it is because I am unusually busy this semester.  There's nothing wrong with that, except my neglect of this delightful blog.  So here we go, pictures from Day 1 (Nov 7).  Bonus points out to whoever can guess what these are...
