a blogger's cry for html help.

Okay everyone, your tips and html's are now 100% welcome as I have spent WAY too many hours trying to figure out how to make my little pinterest, instagram, and "sponsor" images link to their respective pages.  What am I doing wrong here?

accidental patriotism.

The optimal summer drink.  Lemons and honey (add to water after 24-48 hours of refrigeration)

Taking this Memorial Day as an opportunity for some serious couch snuggles and hulu-ing.  
Because tomorrow I start a real job, which calls for laziness today.

Thank-you to ALL of you who have been so encouraging along the way.  I can't believe this is real.  
Two weeks and a full-time job begins.  Welcome to postgraduate life? 

On a more sombering note, I lost my camera with all my graduation pictures the day of graduation.  Leaving it atop my husband's car, we pulled out of my favorite restauraunt and waved goodbye to the Elph and all its glory and irreplaceable memories forever.  I've only called the stores nearby the fateful place on the road where it probably landed a dozen times.  I've only talked to the same people at Campus Safety at my school just as many times, and I think they're a little tired of opening the lost and found to look for "the little blue camera."  Oh well.  Thanks to my Dad and friends for snapping some shots, too, so I could remember these special moments!

It's been emotional.  I recycled every piece of paper from my last semester of college.  It all filled an entire grocery bag.  So many hours, so much work, so many things to be proud and ashamed of.  I still can't believe it has come to a close.

Then there's the fact that my Dad moved to Thailand yesterday.  I have only had a couple of breakdowns so far - wishing he was sitting at the dinner table with me, whistling away, playing the piano at the most random times of the day..... 

Dad, you have left a permanent mark on my heart and I will forever cherish these 6 months that we got to live together.  You are such an amazing man.

Two days ago, I bought a suit for the first time!  And button up shirts, work pants, the whole gambut.  And thanks to my AMAZING mom and step-dad, I have an iPad which I am trying to only use for "business" like activity - in other words, I take it to coffee shops in the AM and (try) to read the New York Times.

The iPad for me marks a new beginning into the adventures of adulthood.
So, in continuing with that theme....

the light at the end of the tunnel.

So.  This is a bound copy of my thesis.

All that stands between myself and graduation is a powerpoint presentation of this bad boy.

 Just looking at it has inspired me to make a list of things I want to do post-graduation.  These things include:

- Bleach a stain out of a white shirt that I have been meaning to bleach for 6 months
- Try a DIY teeth whitening tutorial from Pinterest
- Exercise.  Seriously.
- Buy new hair ties, since I only have one suuuuper loose one that is barely hanging on.
- Wash my car!  (This includes vacuuming out the millions of particles of debris that have accumulated over the last year or so)
- Shave legs thoroughly.

Amazing the little things that you can look forward to after spending 4 years with your nose buried in books.
