Ok, so, holy crap it's been a very long time since my last post up in here.
Here's what's been going on:
a) Enduring one of the most labor intensive terms of school ever. Seriously. So much reading & writing. It's a tad overwhelming. And that's not even counting the reading that I'm forgetting to do. And writing. I was made aware of 2 short stories that I was supposed to have read, plus 1 that I was supposed to have written, both by today. I had no idea.
b) Waiting with great anticipation for tommorrow, when M and I find out the sex of our little baby Ringo, as we've been calling the fetus in her ever-expanding belly. 2 things: 1 - the baby likes rock music, and 2 - the baby likes yoga. Or rather, the baby likes it when her host does yoga.
c) I've been writing for the school newspaper, The PSU Vanguard. Yes, believe it or not, I finally convinced people to pay me for my ramblings. Thus far, I have written only about local music, which gives me a chance to find & help promote deserving bands. This also involves going to see more shows. Also, I'm doing cd reviews.
d) Gearing up for recording the next album. J, B, and I are all excited about the new material and look forward to rocking your asses soon with it.
e) Getting mentally & physically prepared for being a father and having a baby in the house. This includes considering any potential threat our dogs pose, fixing up the backyard to make it baby safe, kicking out some-to-all of our roommates, and seriously considering what to do for $$ after I graduate next spring.
f) Getting ready for my sister-in-law's wedding this Saturday. This is more of M's job, but we both have roles in the day's proceedings, so it's one more thing on the list.
g) Looking forward to a big family dinner tomorrow night for my grandpa's 90th birthday. My rock star uncle is flying up from Hollywood to attend. And my brother is even bringing his newish girlfriend. I can't believe I actually just wrote that sentence. Jame-O! With a girlfriend?! Whaaaa???
h) Ignoring my blog. Sorry, internet. Ever thus to time-wasters.
