thankful thursday, and picture post!

today, i am extremely thankful that the semester is OVER! i took my art history final on tuesday (on which i scored a 97.5, thankyouverymuch, giving me a final grade of 95.7–in case you didn’t know, THAT’S AN “A”.  hee.),  and i turned in my last two english lit papers last night, one of which counted as the final. i did turn them in about half an hour late, but hopefully he won’t take off any points… we shall see. now i have exactly one month of freedom til summer semester starts! of course, i have some qualms about that, b/c my astronomy class is going to be from 10:30am til 5:30pm on mondays, and 10:30am til 1pm on wednesdays. mondays are going to be rough. but for now, let’s concentrate on the positive: i have a whole month of doing whatever i want ahead of me! whooooooooooooo!

yesterday while browsing my flickr account, i got the idea to do a picture post, but i was extremely busy writing my papers all day. so i’m going to add it here. 🙂   and so without further adieu….

an art shot....this was in a junk yard outside austin speed shop, and it made me think. the "vfw" sign stands for "veterans of foreign wars", and it seems broken and forgotten, like many of our veterans...

    I just need to state that maybe I should be friends with FoxyCleopatra bc I wanted to name my dog Fitzwilliam but she was a girl, so I decided against it and then named my hampster Mr. Darcy instead! WOOO!!
