Back to School, or: I Have a Life Again(!)

I'm baaa-aaack!

I know, it has been quite some time since I wrote up a little somethin' somethin' for the ol' blog here. Mostly because I just started back to school Monday. Woop woop! (I also seem to be having a difficult time typing at the moment...even though you can't exactly tell). I have some pretty good classes this semester, and all seems to going swell. 

Dad...?.... What??

I have to tell you all though, I am already wiped out. Yes, almost all of my classes are in fact dance classes, but really, I must have been in worse shape than I thought. But I love it. It's so good to be dancing again. However, I do have a strong disliking of Boulder, Colorado in many ways and for many reasons. To name a few: the traffic, the people, the retarded lay-out of the town, the fact that there are really only two ways in and out of that zoo from the university, the overly-priced everything, the attitude, the hypocrisy, and once again, the people. The only really cool part is that it's smack-dab up against the Flatiron Mountains (which actually sucks a lot of the time too because of how it affects the weather), and the CU campus is really beautiful (way better than CSU).

The fact is, I am finally going to be busy again! I love having stuff to do. I have always been a very busy, always on-the-go type person (I was starting to get pretty stir-crazy this past month). My classes are all enjoyable, I have a clearer mind of what the hell I'm doing now, and I'm getting back into shape again (always a big plus, like this: +).  I'm also taking a painting class this semester, so if there's anything that turns out to be blog-post-worthy, you may be seeing some of that up here as well.

Ok, now we have to "talk".

The thing about this whole going back to school deal is the fact that I won't be nearly as blog-crazy as I was my first week(s) starting out, so I won't be writing as much or as often. I will still try to post my little photo series every weekend though, I know that's the highlight of my blog, really. In fact, I probably wouldn't have to write anything ever. But I do because I like to put my voice into the written form sometimes as well as let it out vocally (which also tends to happen a lot).

So, I just wanted to check in with y'all ("y'all?" you might say?...Remember, I lived in Texas for 7 years) so you know where I'm at, or "where I stand" on all this.

This guy stands pretty well.

So, my fellow blogging, reading friends, I leave you with that.

Until next time!

Peace :-)


  1. Study of course must come first, but dont forget us. Love reading your posts and seeing your lovely photos. Hugs :)

  2. Baby:

    boulder is a cock-sandwich. You are right about that.

    Also: that kid saying "that's swell" is awesome. He reminds me of me. Cause i'm cool like that.

    But I have to tell you that you never appeared to be out of shape to me. You are still super sexy hot as always. I could probably break open walnuts on your abs. With a mallet. Or something.

    anyway, there are a lot of blogs that have very little written work, so don't worry if you are just posting photos and paintings and such. It will be awesome either way.

    I love you. *kiss* *spank*

  3. I know how you feel Jera! School has been hectic for me too! Except all mine are pretty much core kind of classes. Thankfully this cold is letting up and I'm feeling better!

    And yes I say y'all too!

  4. Good luck with your classes Jera. I'm glad you're happy in all the busy bustle of life. I've been enjoying the start of Fall semester as well, and am actually looking forward to continuing in these classes. I will be keeping and eye out for your photos and paintings, I'm sure they'll be great! :)

  5. It's great to hear that the start of school has gone well for you and that you are enjoying your classes. I love reading your posts but understand that blogging is time consuming and at times something has to give. Although my intention is to post something daily, when things get busy for me (like lately) I'm not always able to write... so no worries chickadee. Looking forward to your updates when you get the time. Big hugs, The Empress

  6. I started school also and I totally get the not having much time. Don't worry about not writing much or posting much!

    I can't wait to see some of your artwork!

  7. Keep up the good work Jera! Define your dreams and go for it! Life is the blink of an eye...

  8. Stay in School cos School is Cool! Although if you're an English teacher, school is a life-consuming, time-sucking, devil worshiper that is making me live the life of a boring old woman rather than a young lively 24 year old. But like I said, school is cool.
    I like photos and words. Photos and words can be a lovely creative combination!

  9. Going to miss your words, but I guess the pics will have to do :)

  10. Sure, Boulder's kinda "bro" (or "brah," I guess?), but there are a lot of great people there, too. Just like everywhere else, they have assholes and non-assholes. At least the assholes don't require much filtering on your part; you could be living in some ultra-conservative place where it takes months to figure out who you truly can't handle being around...



Please do comment. I mean, it's not there for decoration. And I do enjoy a little chit-chat ;-)
