Ramblings and where I am

Took my Environmental Science class on a field trip today - we headed to Wissahickon Park in Philadelphia. It is a cool place and the weather was perfect. We looked at the rocks and also studied the creek/water - it was fun. I always enjoy taking students out and getting out and hiking and stuff.

I finished up the History GIS project Friday - we had the students in again and they finished looking for the latitiude and longitude of their battlefields as well as if the battlefield is commemorated by a museum or memorial. I also had a meeting about GIS in general an how we are shaping the program in our school - lots coming up with that.

I actually am going to look into getting certified officially in GIS - it is an up and coming field and something to get into if things go blah with teaching, or if I wanted to move, or if the school downsized, etc. I am really interested in it... yes, eyeing another career for a number of reasons... ahhh what a swirly mind and a lonly heart will make one due : )

been checking out some Vegas stuff, probably going to take my one sister to Vegas for her birthday. That will be a fun four day weekend. Then the day after i get back from that - I have been invited to this golf thing... I have never golfed in my life, but she said who cares, come along hehe

Been looking at the wave of music coming around the area - there are lots of great shows, but none so far that time with my schedule other than the two I am lined up for now... but I am looking at a few more upcoming ones : ) plus starting to go out a little more, finding what I can when i am free

got mounds of grading to do - blech - I am procrastinating and will work on that tomorrow. Basically have it in all classes.. phooey.

Speaking of, wow things have been wacky this year - the college classes end around May 12 and the high school June 15.

And boy has this year been up and down, not just the job, but personally too... it seems to be ending, at least so far on a kinda down but kinda middle ground... almost a - damn I am still where I have always been kinda thing... which is good and bad I suppose... :P

Well, mind is somewhere else tonight, so I shall go and let it wander, Ta-Ta all : )

New comic series catches my eye

Well - picked up a new comic and find it interesting - I added it to my subscription list (they all know me and my box number at the comic shop - hehe- I have a long list :P

Echo by Terry Moore

It is intriquing in it is all black and white with a little sepia and mainly baseline drawings and the story looks good.

And of course the title character's name is Julie - how can you go wrong with a character named Julie ; )

Checking in

Whoo, another Saturday about in the bank : )

Started with my early environmental lab - we did this cool simulation/activity to illustrate carrying capacity, sustainability and the concept of the Tragedy of the commons. They then had the rest of the lab time to work on an Urbanization lab.

After that I headed to try and find some new dress work shoes, mine broke this week :( I have a hard time finding shoes because of my small shoe size. So far no luck, will try more tomorrow.

I then did some walking on the boardwalk and now just going to hang for the night and maybe do work - lol - motivation has been something not in my pocket much of late.

Yesterday was not too bad either - after teaching my environmental lecture, I met a couple people from work at this place I had not been to before - Flip-Flops - it was a really nice place, good mix of music and nice dance floor. Plus the bartender was nice and nice to look at too hehe.

Starting to work on planning the birthday trip for my one sister - we are taking her to Las Vegas again for her birthday It should be a fun sister time : )

Alrighty - off to do this and that - more odd blonde rambles shall be forthcoming : )

Watershed wonderings

Whew busy day. But, a little bit of a watershed (I still do not fully understand why people use that term to mean a monumental point to get over and a turning point in something – a watershed is an area where all rivers and water sources feed into one final point… I guess that is the idea, feeding and collecting into one final point, although with water, that tends to be the lowest point and people use the term more like hard work and "climbing" over a great deal/struggle… hmmm must look this u

But as I ramble – HURRAY I finally have enough time to ramble, I will be alright – hehe – but I say watershed because while I still have buttloads to do… I got a bunch of projects out of the way today

Plus, the end of the semester is finally starting to swing into sight, basically a month left. This summer should prove to be very, very interesting I think, could be a… watershed summer – lol If I am lucky and life finally rolls a nice break my way, maybe even a hingepoint (see earlier blogs to know what I mean by hingepoint, or ask me :P

Still need to find time to work on some projects such as this bookcase I have had waiting here for a bit I need to build so then I can organize and clean out my closet and a few other things.

Alrighty off to do this and that – will keep hanging in : ) found a song that has some lyrics that seem to have been swirling around my head here and there lately, along with the multitude of other things – lol I put the song on my myspace for now… give it/Ms. Vogele a listen : )


Only fooling myself
Kate Vogele

I stop to catch my breath
And I stop to catch your eye
No need to second-guess
That you've been on my mind
I dream days away, but that's okay

It's like I want to hear a silent sound
And then hold it in my hand
But a rose won't blossom from a ground
Of desert sand, but I like to pretend that

One day I'll turn around, I'll see your hand reach out
I'm only fooling myself, oh
But maybe when you smile
It means you'd stay awhile
Just maybe you'd save me now

Well, now it's etched in stone
That I can't survive alone
You have the missing piece
That I need so desperately
Yes, I slip away to a day that'll never come

It's like a splash of water to my face
When I suddenly realize
That you could never find a place
For me in your eyes, and I don't know why I keep thinking


It's love in disguise
I'm lost in your eyes
Lost in your eyes
