Where I've Been

Grad-schoolin’, volunteerin’, music-makin’.

So, since I decided to stick it out a bit longer and go the Student Affairs track of Higher Ed Management, I’ve been trying to get in as much volunteer work as I can that will help me (and the community) in this regard. I’m going to be working on a number of different projects, including going to a sensitivity training course this Friday to counsel gay/lesbian/bisexual/transgendered students. Awesome. School is getting a little easier in terms of managing time, it’s just hard to juggle 14- and 16-hour days and still try to have fun. I refuse to stop having fun. Gah! I don’t really want to say too much more about it here, lately I’ve been wary of posting too much information on the internet. You never know who is snooping around. Actually, I do know who! But anyway.

One thing that’s been on the internet that I haven’t posted it here…the Maxipads are breaking up. Kacyn is hitting the road for hipper pastures, and it’s time to move on. I’m bummed, it hasn’t quite hit me yet, but Joe and I are already working on a new project with our friend Carrie, which is going to be completely different than the ‘Pads and way awesome. I’m super pumped for it.

Also, Pirates season. Can you believe Opening Day sold out in just over 24 hours? Are you kidding me?! People, we were excited that we beat a COMMUNITY COLLEGE TEAM! Ack! Why are we so stupid? Why do we feed our hard-earned money into this team? I mean, obviously I’m guilty of it too, it’s just…-sigh-. Depressing.

And thefoodsex.com. How I neglect thee. I just need there to be more hours in a day that I can stand to be awake.

Re-reading this, I’ve realized that all this being tired and busy has made me really, really boring. YAWN

I love opening day! It's the one day no teams suck. It will be the only day the White Sox do not have a losing record!

Good luck with the new band... a new direction is always a good thing. :)

You never did post about the Turkey Extravaganza, you jerk.

I'm looking forward to hearing the new band, dude. I'm expecting nothing short of complete awesomeness. And metal. Lots of metal.

Good luck with the new band. I did find out about your band when reviewing some of your older posts. I liked what I heard. Sometimes I miss my loud, noisy rock band.

I mentioned your food blog in one of my posts and it looks like other people are picking up on it. Nice work!

I'm so sad opening day sold out. I was so looking forward to not going to work that day and eating hot dogs and drinking beer.

you do realize your blog is going to get spammed by dave matthews fans until you take his name off of your site you suck dude. Punk music is horrible no melody. I didn't read much of your site i could care less really. Just take Mr. Matthews name out of your mouth if you can't give him the respect he deserves. Mr Matthews gives his life to give millions of undying fans joy. True joy is being at a DMB concert for fans of this band. I just don't think you really understand and appreciate what this man does. Mr. Matthews is one of the greatest musicians EVER. Dave is about everything good in the world and for you to use his name in hate is just plain wrong. Take his name down or his fans will continue to spam.

DMB fans spamming a blog is about the dumbest shit ever.
