Saw this on Postsecret today ...

And identified a little too much.

Thanks Postsecret, my love affair with you will go on forever!

I'm so excited to be seeing Frank Warren, creator of Postsecret, tomorrow in St. Paul.

She's here!

The baby, that is. No, not my baby before all of you jump to your cell phones and call to make sure I really didn't have a baby. This is my landlord family's baby. Long-awaited and it's finally starting to hit me that she's here. So far so good. She's been sleeping since she got home from the hospital. Not a peep.

It dawned on me too that I never realized just how tiny day-old babies really are. I've never been around a day-old baby! But she's so cute! Almost makes me want one of my own. Keyword: ALMOST.

Things are about to get interesting around here, I'm sure. I'm apart of an interesting dynamic living here but not not really being here. I know I'm just renting a room, but I also can't help but share the joy of a new family member. I'm really over-aware of my presence at all times and tried not to overstay my welcome when oggling over Baby Girl.

I do want to show interest though. It's a common space and I have to seem human. Man do I over think these things too much.

To top off the baby mess, our sink decided to stop functioning. I walk into the kitchen yesterday and THERE IS NO SINK. Surreal. Just surreal. Nothing. Geez. And, I have to work on Saturday. FUN STUFF.

Focus focus

So I'm going to try to focus this blog a little more over the course of the year to focus on issues related to my field, national service, my year of service in Minneapolis, studying for the GRE, leading after school activities, teaching, writing, or anything else I find amusing.

That doesn't sound too focused now does it?

I'm also going to try to take on NaNoWriMo, so it might be my space to blog about that too. Who knows? The possibilities are endless. Definitely going to start posting here again.
