I am so jazzed that WWS has added a Facebook group, and now a Dreamwidth thingie apparently too. Now if only I could remember my password... X 0-D

I'm laying in bed with some stomach ickiness--funny how the presence (even the online presence) of friends makes me feel a whole lot better anyway. ^^ I wish the stupid internet connection here wasn't so darn unreliable, but the hijinks it was giving me last week have me convinced it's smartest to wait until I have something better before I rejoin my favorite RP board. Last week seemed to be the curse of the computers, actually, all around--my USB drive fried and I lost some of my schoolwork and then the printers went wacko at home AND at the school computer lab AND in the school library. W.T.H. I was already despising this school project for a lot of other reasons, and now this. I am ready to be DONE, I tell you, done!!

Anywho, a bit of breathing space now before we have to present on our topic, and for that I just have to help polish up the essay and whip up some Powerpoints and a speech. Classes this summer are developmental psychology (actually called human growth and development, but same diff) and animal training. I could probably ace the training quizzes with my eyes closed but I'm behind on the actual training part--starting to wonder if maybe I should have gotten slightly older (and thus hopefully less distractable and more mature) rats to train, but ah well. Firethroat and Lightfoot are cute, and a lot better socially than my first rats, who were from a pet shop (but not quite so wonderful as my last rats from a better breeder, to my disappointment. I'm coveting better-bred rats for adoption I see listed online now... almost as much as I'm coveting a new dog).

In any case, it's turning out to be a rather stressful and unrestful summer. Not to mention hot. But it's almost over... and I'm trying not to worry about the larger load of classes I'm supposed to take in the fall. But right now two classes seems more than enough, which feels rather...pathetic. Meh. Ah well. I've still got some health kinks to work out, but one way or another I'm feeling like I need to spend more time on more fun and social stuff, despite the amount of time I do spend harassing my boyfriend (with whom I've been almost a year and a half now...gasp. Very strange to think). Hoping the volunteering stuff I'm starting up tomorrow is going to help with that.

Orientation tomorrow at National Mill Dog Rescue. : 0-) We'll see how it goes. ..and ah, skwerls, I still need to print off my paperwork for that... eep! Time to run upstairs and do so, and maybe grab something to hopefully settle my stomach while I'm at it. ...As soon as I get the purring, attention-starved kitty off of it, anyway. X 0-)
