The Finish Line

Only two more days until this semester is over for me.  Yesterday was the last day of classes, and I have two finals tomorrow and on on Friday.  Of course, it's not that simple - tonight is our rugby banquet, and tomorrow my research paper is due, along with a study session with a friend for my final on Friday.  But, on Friday sometime around 1:30 I will leave UNCG's campus and be officially finished with this semester.  It's weird to see all of my friends who I have been here for 4 years with all graduating, but I still wouldn't change the decision I made to stay home last semester if someone gave me the chance.

I'm still looking for a job.  The prospects are sucking... no one needs nannies or childcare, because so many people in NC have been laid off (we have the 4th highest unemployment rate in the US right now!) and also because childcare is expensive - and leaving your kids with their grandmother/extended family is such a cheaper option!  I was really hoping I could find SOMETHING.  I think I'm going to call the Y tomorrow and see if they're hiring anyone last minute for any summer camps or anything.  I could always go home and get a job- there are a few places that I know would hire me for the summer, but I really wanted to stay in Greensboro.

I'm moving in three weekends... there is so much to pack and organize and throw out.  Also, I'm getting a new desk from IKEA - oddly enough, my roommate-to-be Kim picked out the same one from the online catalogue.  It matches my dresser and bedside tables perfectly:

That photo is rather large.  But, you get the idea.  I like it because there's lots of room for storage and plus the white rectangle on the right is a white board/magnetic.  All I need now is a solution for where to put my printer.  That always seems to be the one thing I can't find a place for in my bedroom!

Don't put one of the shelves in on the top left? Would your printer fit there? Or you can put it on a plastic storage drawer thing nearby, that what I used to do until I moved my printer to my living room and never moved it back to my office!

Oh, I am so jealous!!! I only started watching OTH in season 6. (I've caught up since) Peyton is my favorite but the others are cool too.

Season 6 is pretty great. :o) And please steal the post. I'd love to know your top ten!
