10.21.05 - I've updated my wishlist.
Sean bought an iPod nano for me for my birthday! It's so
cute and little! It's an early present, but that's okay. I
understand his impatience in wanting to give it to me now. It's a
fun little toy. :)
- Update #3. I created a wishlist. It's
short for the moment.
#2. Okay, so I'm changing the theme a bit. But I'm
lazy to go back and change all of the other pages. The links
awful right now. I'll get around to fixing that.
the new stuff will have the new theme. The old stuff will
the old stuff.
cow! I've finally figure out a way to update this thing!
should I say I've finally found a program simple enough for my feeble
mind to comprehend. So, look forward to updates!
new thing coming up will be my birthday list! Cause it's
up, and I'm greedy and stuff. Yay! I'm happy I found a
can use. :)
02.09.05 - Here are the pictures
from the crawfish boil we had a couple weeks
ago. Soon to come, pictures from Mardi Gras.
- This poor doggy
it took me forever, but I finally updated this page. I'm
really sorry to any of you that were interested in seeing these
pictures earlier. I'm assuming most of you have stopped
checking for updates. But here they are nonetheless.
thinking about adding some other stuff to this site. After
all, it's mine. So might as well do something with
it. Maybe I'll just add in some galleries from my day to day
picture taking. We'll see.
- Well, the Tulane Summer
Program in Cambridge is over. Exams and all. Done.
Sticking around here for tonight. Heading out to London
tomorrow morning. Took a few
07.28.04 - Happy Birthday
Maxwell!! :) Everything is going well. Classes are
nearly over. Just two more days of class.
Unfortunately, that's 8 classes. (We have to make up two
classes of European Trade Law.) Exams on Saturday.
Punting Party Saturday afternoon. Sunday morning I'm off to
London for a couple days. Then HOME! I added some
miscellaneous pictures and pictures of
last night was the most I've drank
since I've been here. And I dare say it was the
tipsiest/drunkest I've ever felt. Walking up the steps to my
room was a challenge. But all was well this
morning. No sickness at all. :) We had
fun playing cards. Learned a game I'd never played
didn't do much. Walked around a little, took a nap.
Went to dinner with Genevieve and Katharine.
Changed the layout of the page. If ya didn't
notice. :) Also added links back to the main page
on all of the galleries. (The last Ireland gallery has the
link back here, and the Cambridge galleries link back to the Cambridge
page, which has a link back here.)
07.21.04 - More pictures.
07.18.04 - This morning I went for
a walk. My first intention was to go to the market and look
around there. But there were still a booths not set up
yet. So I looked at what was there, but a lot of people were
covering stuff up, because it was drizzling. So, I decided to
head out to the other side of Trinity and get some pictures over there
that I've been meaning to get. So, off I
go. (Still drizzling.) I walk around, cross the
river, get some pictures. Still drizzling, though starting to
actually rain now, but a light rain. Luckily, the next
pathway I choose is covered by trees, so I didn't really get
wet. However, on the way back around the other side (I made a
huge block around a few of the colleges), no canopy of trees to keep my
from getting wet. So, I got soaked. Here are this morning's
07.17.04 - Yay! I got
the Ireland pictures all posted again. Except they aren't
compressed anymore. Sorry 'bout that. Hehe, there
will always be something wrong, won't there? But yeah they're
up. Today is exams. One down. One to
go. Starts in 55minutes. So why am I doing
this? Uhm. Good question. Off I go.
Edit: I added another
the Cambridge page. I took some pictures today when I went
for a walk around earlier and on the way back from the exam
room. It was waaay across campus. So, I'm all done
with the first session. I didn't like the last
exam. The fact pattern was intensive. I could have
written so much more. An hour was so inadequate.
:/ We'll see what comes of it. Now I've got the
rest of the weekend to myself. I suppose I should check my
materials for any assignments to do for Monday. For the rest
of the day, it's do nothing time.
07.14.04 - Went for a walk
today. Took some pictures..
- Added another
the Cambridge page.. We went punting today. It was a lot of
fun. First we did a guided tour. Then we went off
on our on. During the guided tour, we went down the busy part
of the river. Some people that were just out punting on their
own were in that end as well. Well, one group had themselves
out horizontally across the river. And it's not all that
wide. There was lots of traffic in this one little area, so
we ended up running into them. (kinda like a T) The
guy that was doing the punting didn't brace himself at all, and when we
hit the boat, he fell to his knees and his top half plunged into the
water. It was quite hilarious. Our guide punter was
quite amused (and thought the guy deserved it, as that was the second time the
people in that boat had gotten in our way). Funny
stuff. When we went punting on our own, we took out a poetry
book and recited poetry. What a group of nerds. It
was pretty funny. (We held back from reciting The Lady of
Shallot.) Anyhow, it was all fun. Nearly got rained
on, but didn't. A bit chilly out today. Glad I
bought this Cambridge University sweatshirt. :) Now
I must get some reading done.
- Classes are going pretty well. Judge Feldman is a cool
teacher. Very laid back, and he has great stories to
tell. Cultural property is interesting, though the professor
isn't the greatest lecturer in the world. She's sweet
though. Rehnquist, well, I'm not sure what to say about
him. It's just like a history class. But going
okay. All is well.
07.05.04 - Grrrrrr.. I'm getting
aggravated because frontpage won't update my webpage. Well,
not the picture galleries anyway. I changed the layout of the
Ireland one and added the Amsterdam one. But the Amsterdam
gallery doesn't even show up. The Ireland one is showing up
like it originally was. Aggravating. Oh
well. Hopefully it will work itself out. Someone
email me and let me know if it works for you or what.
- Today I'm heading to
Cambridge. I'm on the boat/ferry now, crossing the
Atlantic. Amsterdam was really gorgeous. Some
really awesome buildings there. Went to a couple of museums,
and spent lots of time walking around the city, just admiring
it. (But let me tell ya, my left foot ain't too
happy.) We spent a good bit of time searching for Puccini
Chocolates. It was so worth the searching. Pictures
posted. Trains aren't any fun, by the way. Well, I
suppose they're great if you have no luggage. But when you've
got lotsa heavy luggage, switching from train to train is just a
hassle. But I'm just complaining. Couple more hours
to go before we hit land. Then it's on to another train and
off to Cambridge. Finally, I'll have my own room!
I'm getting sea sick. I'm tiiiiired. Cause I didn't
really sleep last night, though I did try to. And I need a
shower. Too bad I'm getting into Cambridge too late to really
take much of a nap and a long nice shower before the orientation at
5:30. I'll see what I can manage. I'm guessing I'll
get there around 2ish.
#2: Well, I'm in Cambridge now. Have my
room. Well, it's more than a room. It's like a mini
apartment. Just I share a bathroom with other
people. Other than that, I have my own little kitchen, my own
living room, and my own bedroom. Nifty.
:) Pictures posted.
- Well, I'm in the Dublin airport and, thank the Lord, it has free
wireless access! So I get to upload all this stuff and play
around for awhile while I wait for my flight, which is at
3:40. (Right now it's 11:15.) Great
stuff. Hope you all enjoy the pictures.
:) Oh, and I had comments on just about every picture last
night when I was working on all this stuff. And then it
wouldn't save. I couldn't figure it out. So I
figured it was okay from the time I saved before. Well, I was
wrong. So no more comments, cause it all
disappeared. So I did it the lazy way. Perhaps if I
find I've got lots more free time after I've done all I want to do
online, I'll go back and add some comments.
- Today was the last day of the Western Shamrocker tour. It
was "deadly craik," (pronounced crack) to use a bit of Irish
slang. (It means great fun or something similar.)
I'd love to come back and do another tour with them one day.
They do a tour of Northern Ireland, Western, and Southern, all lasting
different amount of days. The one I did was the
shortest. The people I went on the tour with were really
friendly. Everyone got along really well and had lots of
fun. I realize that I have all of the pictures just heaped
onto the page, but I'll work on creating new pages later, so the load
time won't take forever. In all actuality, it'll probably be
fixed before I even get to upload this. And this is just
moot. Ireland isn't one for wireless, that's for
sure. And let me tell ya, international calls will break
ya! I should have brought warmer clothes. It's been
a bit chilly here. And rainy. Which isn't so
bad. Just wish I had warmer clothes packed for this leg of
the trip. Hosteling has been an okay experience.
Hotels would be much better, cause I'd have my own bathroom and no one
to share a room with, but this is cheaper. So, it's worth
it. I haven't managed to get any pictures of the hostels I've
stayed at. So I'm going to take a couple now of the room I'm
staying in at Kinlay house in Dublin. Some rooms are better
than this, some are worse. But this is the only one en
suite. Which is a major bonus. 'Til next
