The Final Countdown Pattern Begins

Today, August 17, 2009 marks one week until my last semester (hopefully!) of my undergraduate career begins.

Needless to say: I'm NERVOUS!

I have four classes left in my quest to become an Aerospace Engineer...holy cow! I feel like I have been at ASU forever, and this last semester, although it will hopefully go by quickly, just feels like an extension of forever.

It's weird to think I may have a real job come December-ish, or at least hopefully, a real degree.

This semester is going to be tough...
> 4 tough, senior level engineering courses
> 2 piano students
> 2 bellchoirs to direct
> NASA UAV project/job
> Parish Council Secretary

AAAHHHHHHHHHHH! Plus, I have decided against paying $300 for a parking pass at ASU, so I will be biking 2.5 miles to the light rail station. This will force me to exercise = win, win for April. Although, this reminds me, I need to locate a comfier seat for my bike.

Let the countdown begin!!

Days left until Graduation: 123
Days Completed: 0
Jobs applied for: 10

  1. Way to go April!!!! I am so excited for you and your last semester. Good luck on the biking thing. I am tired just thinking about it, but then again I am no longer 20. Yes, that sounds like a good excuse. You will do amazing. I love to tell my girls about your adventures. Savanna loves to read your blog. Sorry about the d-condition. I think mine might be a kid condition, but that is completely brought on by myself and I love it. Hopefully we can provide you with some comic relief at times. Denise

MCM - Certified Mom

This morning I woke up early, the baby monitor was chirping just a few minutes before my alarm was set to go off. Chris graciously rolled out of bed and set out to re-insert Otto's paci. Meanwhile, I pressed my clothes, curled my hair and brewed some coffee - my standard pre-console routine. After a quick breakfast Zara peeped her head over the railing and I heard a gentle "mama" echo down the stairs. It was still dark, but this little one was ready for her daily breakfast of oatmeal and milk in preparation for a fun day at swim lessons and school. As she sat, eating her "oatsss" (as she calls them), I whirled around the kitchen prepping bottles, gathering outfits for school, and ensuring all the swim lesson supplies were set out. It's hard leaving Chris to take care of both kids in the morning (#momguilt) so I try my best to complete as many get-ahead tasks as possible, in hopes his morning goes smoothly. 
This morning schedule description may seem mundan…

MCM - On Call

It's definitely Monday. Otto spit up on my work clothes this morning, I forgot to brush my teeth and I sat down in my car forgetting to clean the layer of sand from the beach yesterday. Whoops. But, it's also MONDAY!!!!! Which means you get a special look behind the proverbial curtain of Mission Control in a series I'm dubbing "Mission Control Monday". We all need a little "boost" (pun intended) at the beginning of the week, so why not get it from the heart of Manned Spaceflight itself - NASA's Mission Control
This week I am highlighting the little known fact that sometimes, as an ADCO Specialist, I am scheduled to be "On Call". It just so happens I am "on-call" this week! Even though we don't have a sweet 1990's pager, the ADCO on-call is a Specialist with the cumbersome responsibility of having their cell phone strapped to them at all times. Yes, even during the night. Yes, even when you have a 3 month old. Yes, just…

'Subtle Nerdy' Home Decor

In our house you won't hear "Alexa...play country radio..." for two reasons. (1) We are not that into country music and (2) our "Alexa" is named "Computer" just like the interactive onboard computer on the Starship Enterprise. That's how I like my home decor too - it's a style I've nicknamed "subtle nerdy".  #subtlenerdy

Apparently 'subtle nerdy' doesn't have quite the following that 'farmhouse chic' does...yet! So, that means I have to get creative and DIY many of my nerdy touches. And, while you may not be super onboard with the 'subtle nerdy' trend sweeping the home decor world this hole-in-the-wall-internet-spot, I bet you have your own ideas just waiting to be manifested on a blank wall! So, let's jump in, starting in our master bedroom!

The showpiece of this room is that gorgeous four poster bed and amazingly detailed hand-made quilt. Confession number one: I did not DIY the bed (it was an ex…
