thanks to  my tax return i will be credit card debt free in about one more month!!!

this is very exciting.  yes, i still have student loan debt, but that's nowhere near is burdensome as credit card debt.  now i can really get some saving done for the readily approaching grad schoo fees.

tom and i gardened for four hours today!  it was some serious hard labor.  we double tilled our soil, mulched, made rows, planted lots of seeds, and built a fence around our plot.

sooooo much exercise in the sun which will hopefully produce some delicious plants come june. very satisfying.

i've got too much california in me!  i slept right through the earthquake!

okay, so i did wake up early this morning when i heard stuff from our dresser fall on the floor, but i thought it was tom knocking into it.

i got a bike! a really nice pretty green one with hand brakes and multiple speeds and classic bike character. it's been awhile since i've had a bike and even longer since i have had a dependable one. i also joined the bike co-op so i can learn and do regular bike maintenance.

very exciting!

today was "early orientation" for gslis. it went great and has me all eager to start. it was pretty bizarre to be going through a "new student" orientation for a school i have already attended, but there was enough focus on gslis to make the experience exciting. the day was filled with tours of gslis, the library, and campus (which i ended up helping lead at one point). we ate a complimentary lunch at the illini ballroom (a little bit better than eating in a dorm cafeteria). the whole day culminated with the research showcase at lis which was interesting and well catered. i had the opportunity to meet face to face with the people from community informatics who i've been speaking with the last couple weeks. i'm fairly certain at this point that i'll be starting my assistantship in the summer, but not actually starting classes until the fall. i would like to start classes in the summer, but it doesn't sound like they have tuition waivers for early attendance. no big deal. it will give me more opportunity to save money.

all of this is really great, but i have to admit that i have this overhanging grey cloud over my head that in a very short time i will no longer work at conservation. it's been such a big part of my life the last 4 years and to not work there anymore with all those wonderful people is going to be a really hard closure in my life. i'm excited about everything that's happening, but i know deciding on a last day at conservation is going to be really really hard. not seeing jane every week is going to be killer! it's a good thing jody is moving down the hall from me in august or else i'd lose out on that fix as well. i need to take lots and lots of pictures. i'd really like to make it until july 20th (my 4 year anniversary at the place and jane's birthday), but i'm not sure it will be possible.

everything seems to be happening so fast all of a sudden. i didn't think i'd start working until august and now it could be as early as may. wow.
