So I did not do well, at all, last semester. My grades were so bad that I have lost my financial aid. The dean of my college has decided that he wants to give me another chance. I have enrolled in two classes, one is an online class and the other is an evening class, so that I can get back on track. Of course, I must find a way to pay for it. Everybody keep your fingers crossed!
Since I have lost my FA, that means that I have lost my Federal Work Study money, thus I had to quit my job in the Anthropology department. I have been there since September 2002. I applied for a full-time job at an extension division in the university system. That means state benefits! I start on Monday.
I feel like I have turned a corner here. I am feeling more refreshed and ready to do well in both my classes. I actually feel that I can get A's in both of them!
Wish me luck on finding the money to pay for my tuition

I cannot think about the semester, anymore!
Aislin and I are having a holiday party tomorrow night. We invited several friends, most of whom have not seen our new home. I am leaving work early, today, to go home and clean.

I found this on Miss New Orleans' blog
and so I tried it, too. Go ahead, give it a try!

Well, I won't know what my grades turned out to be until sometime next week. I can only hope for the best.
Everybody keep their fingers (or whatever) crossed!

If I survive, of course...

So it was on November 18, 1999 at 2:42 am when the Texas Aggie Bonfire stack collapsed, killing 12 Aggies, and injuring 27 others. I was not even a student here when it happened, but it really affects me. For four years, I worked on the Bonfire Morabilia Project through the TAMU Anthropology Department, cataloging, conserving, and recording the thousands of artifacts left at the construction fence after the collapse.
So, for the Fallen 12, we will not forget you.
Bonfire Memorial, located at the site of the 1999 collapse.

I found this on Miss New Oleans' blog
, and I thought I might try it, too. Hers was the Wheel of Fortune.
You are The Moon
Hope, expectation, Bright promises.
The Moon is a card of magic and mystery - when prominent you know that nothing is as it seems, particularly when it concerns relationships. All logic is thrown out the window.
The Moon is all about visions and illusions, madness, genius and poetry. This is a card that has to do with sleep, and so with both dreams and nightmares. It is a scary card in that it warns that there might be hidden enemies, tricks and falsehoods. But it should also be remembered that this is a card of great creativity, of powerful magic, primal feelings and intuition. You may be going through a time of emotional and mental trial; if you have any past mental problems, you must be vigilant in taking your medication but avoid drugs or alcohol, as abuse of either will cause them irreparable damage. This time however, can also result in great creativity, psychic powers, visions and insight. You can and should trust your intuition.

Well, I have two pics taken by another parent. The first one is of Aislin.
And here is a view of Aislin on Ladyhawke.
We went to the Rabbit Extravaganza in Belton, Texas (I think it was near Temple, but I was just following along in the caravan), on Saturday. Yes, Aislin and her friend, Brianna, and I all got up at middle-of-the night am, and left at the smelly buttcrack of dawn.
We did not show ANY rabbits (I should note that I appear to be allergic to rabbits), but Aislin did have two sketches and a canopic jar, which she entered in the art portion of the contest. Of course, since she could not put any kind of description on the canopic jar, they must have thought it was a wierd cookie jar (a canopic jar
is something she learned about while studying Egypt at school). Since the judges obviously had trouble with the wierd cookie jar, they decided not to place it at all. She did get fourth place with one of her sketches, though. Both sketches were of rabbits, and the canopic jar was shaped as a rabbit.
One of the other kids from Aislin's 4-H club did enter rabbits and one of hers got Best of Breed (the trophy said "BOB," so we nicknamed the rabbit Bob), so we had to wait until Best in Show was judged before we could leave. It was a long
day.Photos courtesy of Macy Jones
