medievallass: (Happy)
 I'm back at PSU as a student, after five years! I guess I'm still young enough for five years to feel like quite some time, because it really does. That said, it was a very busy and filled with learning, five years. In that time I had my first job, traveled to England to participate in a historical re-enactment, and earned my associates in science. Now I'm back, and I feel like I've come full circle and I feel really good about it, a lot stronger and more confident. I needed PCC, and now I need PSU and my Bachelors in Anthro and History are in my reach, something I've always wanted! During this Summer I felt nervousness about coming back after the sadness in 2005, but now I just feel stoked up like a fire and ready to eat this up *rawr!*

This is my second week of term, and as of now everything is going smoothly, oh thank goodness. I'm so happy to be able to take courses in subjects I love, and that I hope will be a part of my future. It's such a relief and nice to have the pre-requirements and gen. ed. out of the way. It feels much less like jumping through hoops and more like an enrichment. My classes this term are East Asian history to 1800, and Anthropology human variation. Not only is it way cool to be taking upper devision level class, but they are fun ^_^! It's still a bit stressful because I want to do really well on my major subjects, but so far it's been a nice keep-you-on-your-toes sort of stress. I'm just finding my groove for the term, but I'm really  feeling happy and strong. I hope this feeling lasts! I'm so lucky and happy to have family and friends who have supported me this far. It's so exciting to be starting something new, and to be on the way to finishing with something I've been working towards, since I was a little girl.

 Yesterday was my friend's wedding, but not only my friend, one of my dearest friends I've ever had. It was Jason't wedding. It was a really nice day. The wedding itself was a small and simple affair, but it was a very happy one. The ceremony was held at the local park Mc Cormick Park. I was a overcast day, but it was warm, and the rain kindly held off until the reception was winding down. I was really honored and happy to stand by Jason's side as he watched Kim come down the aisle and as he said his vows. My heart was still pounding really hard with nerves, I was able to do all the important duties I needed to do. I didn't fumble as I opened the box for Jason so he could be get Kim's ring. Also I felt really nervous when it came time to give my Best Man speech, I felt like I was a little stop and start-y, but mum said it was really good and I was able to make people laugh a few times. That felt good, because the Best Man's speech is supposed to be a little funny. I enjoyed writing it although it was stressful as I didn't leave much time. I wrote it on Friday and the wedding on Saturday. As a funny cute little side note I got wear a Col-sarge rather than carry a bouquet, yay XD. Now Jason and Kim are on their honeymoon at Crater Lake, I love Crater Lake so much. I hope they have a lovely time while they are there and a safe journey there and back. Unfortunately I can't get the speech to paste to the entry or the link to it ;( , but I will post the link to my plurk.

Love to Everyone!

It's well time that I update my lovely Live Journal. Mum, Georgie and I visited Granny, Grandpa, Ali, Rob, Antony, Kev, Connie, Quincy, and met Kev's lady friend Laura. It was really nice to see everyone, I've missed them very much since it had been two years. Ali has a really sweet little house now it has a bedroom, a spare room, a little kitchen and living room, and room that (since the house dates back to the 1820's was probably the parlor). If I was living in England and could afford to rent a house I would love to rent one just like it. Also she has a big wide bathtub in the shape of a scallop shell, and a--ready? A koi pond *happy sigh* ! It was so nice to watch the koi's flitting about. 

I had a lovely time catching up with Gemma, Laura, and Rachel. We had a great BBQ played a dancing game on the Wii and got a bit tipsy. On the last weekend we were visiting I went to London with them to see Laura's brother Robert's portfolio showing. Just like I did for Sheri before I left. It was pretty good, and I was able to pick up some free catalogues for Sheri, which she really really liked I was really happy.

We didn't go to many historical places, but we did go briefly to London's Natural History Museum, the Maritime Museum, and Norwich Castle. Norwich Castle is similar to Colchester Castle in the way it has a great museum inside. It has a Celtic/Roman section, a Saxon/Viking section, and a Medieval Section, it's a really nice set-up. I really really recommend it!

We did do lots of shopping. Mum and Georgie like to shop, Georgie's little and tall enough she's like a dolly. I kind of take up the "man" position when Mum and Georgie go shopping. I pick up other sizes I wait in the changing room and give opinions. It's okay but I am such a different size to both of them that it's hard to shop along. Oh well that's alright.

When we visited Greenwich we had a good time. The Greenwich Festival was going on at the time and we got to see crazy hair ladies making detailed hair sculptures with volunteers, I have a picture, but still have to get all the pictures off my camera. When I do I'll be sure post a link to them here.
