Spring Break commencing!

Picture 199

There’s something nostalgic and endearing about moving back to the area you grew up in. I may have also stated it before, but if you’d told me I’d move back here in four years after graduating college, I would have argued with you. Yet, here I am and I’m enjoying the reprieve for the most part. Relocating takes some adjustment and I’m happy to see myself getting accustomed to the commute (an hour both ways) and having extra money (no utilities or rent!) I changed over my last account yesterday to my new address and I’m excited to be getting renters insurance refund AND money back from my car insurance. Since this town has more cows than people, it means costs in general are lower.

I’m also starting to pick up my hobbies again, after a bit of a hiatus due to the move and beginning a new life routine of sorts. I’m still playing Doctor Who Legacy (finally making more progress thanks to daily bonus’ on specific items) and last weekend I bought Final Fantasy V for my Ipad. I haven’t made a lot of progress on Final Fantasy V, but Doctor Who has been more of a go to since it’s a puzzler I can play while watching Torchwood or a movie. I haven’t picked up FTL: Faster Than Light in a while, but I think continuously playing it on break while packing burned me out on it a bit.

 

The nice thing about the coming week is that I’m off most of the week! This week is our spring break (though we have school tomorrow and Tuesday). I’m looking forward to relaxing, catching up with friends and getting a couple things knocked off my to do list. Maybe it’ll even warm up so I can wash and vacuum my car.

 

::Fun finds this week::

A friend mentioned the below video to me last night. A Whovian asked Christopher Eccleston to assist in his proposal to his girlfriend and he agreed. The video quality is low, but what an amazing way to ask!

March 15th is going to be ‘Fantastic’!

I have yet to talk to anyone today who didn’t have a rough day.  It must be the weather (another snow storm is in the forecast for tomorrow night!) Mine started off very rough since it was cold, some people cannot drive and I had to park my car on a snow embankment because there’s not enough parking.  I go in early everyday, but the one day I’m only ten minutes early, there’s no parking.  The day unfolded and things didn’t get much better, until…David Tennant.

I logged onto facebook after getting home from my weekly board game club to find out that David Tennant is going to be at a convention just 4 hours away from me!!  I quickly logged on and managed to get a photo op and ticket for Sunday.  Yes, it’s not the most practical spending wise, but it’ll be well worth my birthday money I’m using for it! Not to be a complete fangirl, but meeting the tenth Doctor is going to be pretty phenomenal.

The only unfortunate thing is that it is on Sunday and 4 hours away.  I talked to a few friends who said they’d be interested in going, which would make it easier.  I’ll be going there early Sunday morning, then driving back afterwards for a total of 8 hours on the road.  I have work the next day and since I’ll be commuting for the next month or two for my new job, it’ll be a little rough.  This is a once in a lifetime event, so I’m sure I’ll be so hyped up before and afterwards the drive will feel like nothing.
