The Poor Man's Tour of Paris

This is pretty cool, courtesy of Raul. Who needs to go to Paris?!

Sorry for the lack of posts lately. I'm at the end of the semester crunch. I'm actually just about finished all the work I have to turn in, and then I can focus on nothing but my thesis. And Spanish.

I'm also starting to look for jobs...I actually found a posting for a "French Linguist" and got really excited, but sadly did not pass the translation test. That was a nice blow to my ego, although I'm soothing myself with the fact that they probably wanted a native speaker, since they were English to French translations.

But keeping my eyes open and hopes up.

Only two more weeks of class! And then we're going to Colorado! Woot!

Time to let little Courtenay out to play...

Man, I have been super productive ever since I realized that my destiny is in my own hands--i.e., the sooner I finish my damn-blasted thesis, the sooner I will be finished with grad school!

I also began applying for "real" jobs this week, and the thought of once again making "real" money as opposed to this piddly graduate salary has further chomping at the bit to "git er' done!"

At the same time...little Courtenay is starting to get a little fussy. Especially since we're having nice weather lately. And she's starting to act out in different ways, such as suddenly writing a bunch of crap in the middle of my beautifully-worded paper/homework/thesis.

So I'm gonna go take a break...and take a nap...and go Cajun dancing tonight...and watch quadriplegic wheelchair rugby tomorrow...
