events – A building on campus caught fire. It was accidental and nobody got hurt, but it was a huge fire that I could see across campus, and they had to cut the power to our building for a few hours. – The semester is over! Which means that I’ll be taking time off teaching for awhile. (I’m still working
events – I won NaNoWriMo and wrote a hot mess of a novel. It was mostly just me reliving my college life and describing what social anxiety feels like. My plot really hasn’t gone very far, but I managed to pass 50K by some miracle. See my winning post here. – I had three photoshoots. A wedding, a family, and a
events – My Avatar/Korra unanswered questions post is now my most-viewed post of all time. I don’t know how this happened but it’s been getting a weird amount of views lately. I think it’s time to do more Korra posts. Strike while it’s hot. (Also it was announced that Korra comics will be out next year!!) – I got a
It’s been a month since Rex’s surgery. We are halfway through his recovery! Here’s a quick list of updates: He graduated to 7-minute walks. Which means he gets to go to the park twice a day (albeit a really short trip)! He has started to kick his legs again after he pees/poops. He used to do this all the time,
events – I got resorted on Pottermore. It had apparently been a very long time since I was last on and they completely redid everything. I had the option to keep my original house (Ravenclaw), but I decided to get resorted to see if it had changed. And I got sorted into Gryffindor, which I think is only because there
Rex has still been doing really well. He’s walking better than he has in months, and his spirits are beginning to rise. He’s finally done with all of this medication. We’ve started him on a new form of glucosamine, which he is taking much better than the other kind he was on. (We used to have to give it to
It’s been a week since we brought Rex home from his surgery. In short, all is going well. He had his surgery on September 9 and we brought him home the next morning. We decided to go with a TPLO repair, where part of his bone is cut and rotated to stabilize his joint. We went with this option because
Dear Furry Puddin’, It seems we’ve been here before, but each time it gets a little worse and a little harder to reassure myself that you will get better again. Four months ago, you tore the ACL in your left hind leg, just after my graduation. I didn’t have a job and your papa left for a summer-long internship that
I realize that all of my pictures lately have been either of my bird feeder or Rex. Sorry about that? events – I got a job! I was finally hired as technical editor for graduate students at the university. It’s my first ever permanent full-time position. I feel much adult. 🙂 I even have business cards now. And a nametag.
I am very much aware that it is no longer July (it’s not even a little bit July. It’s very not July), but I have been gone forever so I want to do a wrap-up post for what you missed and then do another one at the end of this month. That’s the plan, anyway. We’ll see how things go.
