The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly  
Or - here's my life. How's yours?

The Good:
School is over until I start back to summer classes. They start on May 14 so I have a little bit of time! Writing, knitting, and cleaning are all in my future!

This past weekend, my sister and I went to Savannah GA to celebrate her birthday. We had a great time! I love Savannah! We stayed right on the river and could take the free ferry across to River Street (the historical/shopping part of town.) Fortunately, or unfortunately depending on your perspective, the praline shop was really close to the ferry stop. If you've ever experienced the great joy that is pralines, you'll know why it is both wonderful and awful. I think I may have developed a praline addiction!!!!

Here are some photos I took of the trip:

The free ferry that took us to buy pralines, and stuff.

The view from our room. Naturally I forgot my swimsuit but was able to buy one. I never did make it to the beautiful pool but we did spend an afternoon at the beach!

Looking across the river to Savannah.

The Bad:
Now that school is over, I'm out of a job. I had been working in the tutoring center 16 hours a week. But there aren't enough English classes to justify paying me to work. Of course, I don't spend most of my time tutoring English but officially that's my job. So I am unemployed until August when school starts back up. My supervisor in the tutoring center did say that if enrollment picks up and/or they need coverage in the center for vacations and stuff, she'll call me. I don't mind having the time free but, you know, earning money is kind of nice.

The Ugly:

I am going to make my first C since I came back to school. I'm sure you've already guessed that the C is in physics. I have no one to blame but myself. The worst part is that I have a 79.13 average. If it had been a 80 average, it would have been a B. This semester I'll be making 3 A-s and 1 C. Stupid stupid physics!!!

And that's about it for me. How are you???

My memories of Savannah are the good food, the good drag show, and the pralines!

Glad you enjoyed the trip. I shall keep my fingers crossed for tutors being needed. Boo physics.

Fingers crossed that you'll get called for the tutoring.

So...just what is a praline?

Pralines are hard to describe, but are awesome. Here's a link to a wiki article. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Praline

Wow, I haven't had pralines in a reeeeallly long time. My mom used to make them - I think we first ran into them when we moved to Virginia for a while. They're heavenly. Glad you had a nice trip, and hope that the summer turns out to be full of good surprises.

Love it that the free ferry took you to buy food first before the stuff!

*fingers crossed* that you get a call!
