Anyway, on to my April! So, two major things happened in April for me. The first one needs a back story. Long story short, when I went to college, my parents moved a significant distance from where we lived due to my dad's job. The town they live in now is really small and the only people I really know are my parents, so there's not really much for me to do over the summer when I go "home." I had a job last summer that I didn't really enjoy, so I decided that for this summer, I'd stay at school and work.
During the school year, I have a work-study job in the library that I really enjoy, and there's always a student position open for the summer. I decided that rather than go back to a place where I don't have friends and have a job I don't necessarily enjoy, I'm going to live on campus over the summer and work in the library.
|Our library is so pretty!|
So the other major thing that happened for me is that my advisor has gotten a grant to have a research assistant for the fall and has asked me to take that job. She does music/psychology research, so it's right up my alley. I'm also getting paid, and I possibly get to be a co-author on the paper. WOW. Such an exciting and awesome opportunity for me! I can't wait to get started on this.
April was definitely the month of sushi. I hadn't tried sushi until March, and once I tried it, I went a bit sushi crazy. I wanted to try any kind of roll that I could, and that's what I did. My absolute favorite that I tried is the one at the very top on the left. It was a crawfish volcano roll and it was absolutely delicious. I really like the deep fried rolls, and rolls with avacado or salmon.
The Office has been one of my favorite shows since I was a freshman in high school. I've only seen through the second half of season 7, because it's just not the same without Michael. I want to finish up the show, so I decided to start from the beginning and work my way to the end. So, my goal this summer is to finish the entire show. So far, I'm a few episodes into season 3, which is one of my least favorites... so it may take me a while to get through to season 4... which is one of my favorites.
I don't know what got me watching this show- I hadn't watched it much before this month, just off and on when I found it on TV. But when I discovered that pretty much every episode of the show is online, I went a bit crazy. I watched all of season 1 and almost all of season 2 in only a couple weeks. I guess I just started watching and wanted to see what drama would happen next, so I just kept watching. And watching. And watching...
As you could probably tell from my book haul, I spent a lot of my time in April in used bookstores. I just enjoy going through the shelves and seeing what I can discover and how inexpensively I can find it. Now I just need to make sure I don't spend all of my money on books, as much as I love them.
So, that's about all that I had for this post! My April wasn't extremely interesting, so hopefully my May will be a little better and more interesting. You'll probably see me again tomorrow with a new post, so I'll see y'all again soon!
