Unlike yesterday, when I was on the verge of tears (perhaps due to more biological reasons than anything else), I am feeling rather upbeat about life. I am feeling that I can get things done again. I just posted a blog for my Editing Class today about how I would love to edit creative pieces. Creative pieces are easy to edit, and the creative pieces that I read assured me that there are a few good writers on this campus after all; thus, I am feeling optimistic about how the University of Mount Union still has some people who know how to use the written English language. I am also feeling good about how I will get some things done at home today. I plan to get at least two facials done this week for Mary Kay. I also plan to visit and care for my animals because I have not seen them in about two weeks, and I miss them terribly. I wanted to go home yesterday, actually, but the weather was not kind to me. Now that the snow is melting and that I see mostly unfrozen water on the ground, I see that spring is around the corner. I am quite finished with this winter season, frankly. I am excited about seeing more people who do not live on campus, now that the bad weather is slowly going away. I feel like I may be able to make some plans soon about seeing some friends I have had for a while. I feel like I can accomplish so much this weekend. I can write some papers that I should have written weeks ago, get some facials done, memorize the lines for my scene (I’ve memorized at least half of the script; thus, I am excited), and wash some clothes. Today will be a good day indeed.

I am a graduate of the University of Mount Union. I work for ResCare HomeCare as a direct support professional. I was a psychology major and am hoping to get a master's degree in Business Administration with a concentration on healthcare... Somewhere. I am still interested in English and theatre. Writing had always been one of my passions until recently. It takes too much time and effort, which is why I just draw comics now. Believe it or not, drawing comics is easier for me to express myself than writing. I also love animals. When I am not working hard on whatever project I happen to have my hands on, I am at home playing with my animals. I live with two cats named Garfield and Oreo. I also love to listen to all kinds of music, such as The Birthday Massacre, Emilie Autumn, The Cruxshadows, The Cranberries, Celldweller, Emperor, R.E.M., Future Funk Squad, Symphony X, Einherjer, Borknagar, and Nightwish. And I'm married. But don't tell the government. They suck the fun out of it.
