I said that I would be doing my best to posting weekly blogs this summer, so at least I’m sticking good to that, so far at least.
Not much has happened this past week, other than commencement from Sierra College this past Friday.
So it’s official. I have my AA in Deaf studies from Sierra College.
It’s kind of surreal having this degree. The fact that I’ve been going at school now for 7 years – to finally have my degree, and a year away from my BA in Deaf Cultural Studies.
So I’m not really sure what I want to say, as I really don’t have much to really update y’all on as I’ve not really been up to much other than laying low and relaxing over the past week that I’ve been home. Which is pretty lovely as I don’t get a lot of free time when I’m in full school mode. It is taking me awhile to get used to not having anything school related to really have to do. So strange, but you won’t find me complaining.
So I just feel like I’m rambling now because I am not fully sure of what I am going to say. So I think I will sign off here, so this will be shorter than usual, but I’d rather not have a long rambling blog entry.
See y’all next week!! 🙂
I made it down to Southern California, with no real issues. Moved in on Saturday got some things unpacked… then got dressed and headed with my roommate to the movie premier of No Ordinary Hero, a deaf themed movie. There were quite a few famous actors and actresses there including Marlee Matlin. At the after party, that I also went to, I actually got a picture with Marlee Matlin!!
Gah, still kinda on a high from meeting her – totally was amazing, I had this whole thing planned out of what I wanted to say to her if I met her, but everything kinda went out the window as soon as I saw her. I asked for a picture, took the picture with her and then wished her a happy birthday (it was her birthday that night. :]). But it was so the highlight of the night for sure!! :]
Yesterday, Sunday, was filled with more moving of boxes and unpacking and putting things away, and then classes started today… Monday – although technically it was yesterday, as it is after midnight now. The one class I had today went pretty good, got a few things done, tomorrow, I have to go and pay the remainder of what is due on my school account, yay for standing in lines. *laughs* Anyways, I’ll do my best to update my blog as best I can whenever I have time. :]
Hope that you all are doing well, and I will do my best to post sooner than this post took me to get up for y’all!
7. Something New
So here on campus we have these painted animals with species and genius names on our walk ways and they resurfaced most of the roads/walkways so they’re having to re-paint them on. This is just one of those that they recently re-painted as of this past weekend. 🙂 Thought it fit perfectly. 🙂
This one is one of the ones that’s near the dorms that I live in. 🙂
