Note: If you’re here to help me pick a Halloween costume, that part is at the end. Scroll along, bud.
Sam has a lot of stuff going on at the moment. Sam also likes to speak in the third person. Sorry about that. Here are some things that I’ve decided could be cool to share with you all:
1) Sam has been running around like a chicken with her head cut off!
…ie, work has been BUSY. It isn’t always busy, in the sense that every day there is something to do — I will admit that there are days when all of the items on the agenda can’t get done until later that week, or until someone responds to my email. So I sit there and twiddle my thumbs. But these past few weeks, it’s been a long list of YOU NEED TO DO THIS AND YOU NEED TO DO IT NOW and YOU NEED TO DO THIS YESTERDAY and, as time quickly passes, YOU WERE SUPPOSED TO GET THIS DONE THREE DAYS AGO! Work has been busy.
Hence, I have not posted in a couple weeks — mea culpa — but now, if all goes well, I’ll be back on track and you will once again hear my voice creeping up out of the noise from the Internet.
2) Sam has a bedframe!
This has been a bittersweet achievement, as for the past two years I have not been able to fit a boxspring up the stairs that lead to my room, so all I’ve had is a mattress on the floor. I don’t spend a ton of time in my room, so it hasn’t been a huge issue. But then, lo and behold, my roommate got a new bedframe and announced to me that his old frame doesn’t require a boxspring! And now it is mine. I’m finally climbing the ladder of life.
BUT, BUT, BUT. The only issue is, I have roof-ceilings (you know, the ones that slant), and now my bed is about three feet from the ceiling at its furthest point. You have to give up some comforts to get other comforts.
3) Sam is going to Romania soon!
I have been planning a trip to visit my sister in Oradea, and it’s finally happening at the end of September. I’m going through the scrambling phase, making sure I have everything in order before my trip, and I’m very excited to get there and see mi hermana.
4) Sam is impatient for medical procedures to occur!
As some of you may know, my Grandma just recently passed away. My Grandad has been due to have heart surgery even before she went, but it kept getting pushed back. Well, now I’ve been told that it will be happening in the first week of October (no exact date, yet, of course. There’s still a chance for them to screw that one up). This is slightly nervewracking since I will be in Romania for the first week of October, BUT, I will be visiting my family the day before I leave to see my sister, so I’ll be able to see him at least pre-surgery. Even if it is a couple of weeks prior. AND, he’s getting the less invasive surgery — which means that, instead of the old-fashioned open heart surgery, they will be able to go in through a vein somehow? I don’t know. A bunch of medical terms.
5) Sam wants to pick a Halloween costume!
Because it’s never too early to pick a Halloween costume..
I have several characters to choose from. Here’s the lineup:
- River Tam (Firefly)
In fact, if you want to help me decide, please leave a comment and argue your point for any of the above costumes. They’re all just too good to decide, I might have to do more than one.
