I'm a Hazard to Myself

I ordinarily think of myself as being put together and organized. Lately I feel like a scatter brain at times. I'm not sure if I'm still trying to adjust to being back to juggling classes, work, and a social life, or maybe I have a major case of senioritis. No matter what my deal is I'm afraid for Joy's sake that one day she'll come home and something catastrophic happened. Let me explain.
One day I had a little pot of water on one burner and a frying pan sitting on the one behind it. I wanted to heat up the water for tea or something before I had to leave for class or work. So, I crank up the burner with the water on it (or so I thought) and went into the bathroom. I hear Joy come up from the basement and say, "Oh, Katrin...." I scorched a frying pan instead of heating up my water. Who doesn't turn on the wrong burner sometimes though, right?
Then, there are the times where I just take a risk while trying to accomplish an ordinary task. This weekend I cleaned, no scrubbed the bathroom clean. This is how adventurous I am on the weekends. Well, our shower has those sliding doors with the metal tracks to keep the doors in place. I just cleaned the tub so it was all wet. I look up and notice the mold forming on the edges of the ceiling. That has got to go. So, naturally I step on the wet metal track barefoot and all while I reach on my tippy-toes trying to get the mold with a sponge. I could have potentially fallen and seriously injured myself, but it was a success. No harm no foul - this time.
Now, to make matters worse I like to burn candles in my room. It smells really nice and helps relax me. I had one sitting on my night table on the other side of my bed, but I figured at the rate I was going it wasn't the wisest choice to have an open flame next to my flammable bedding. Now it sits on top of my TV. The candle was getting really low and I thought I would just let it burn out until I went to sleep. Pretty much the thought of me blowing it out ended as I passed out watching the TV. Yup, I woke up in the morning and realized I fell asleep with the candle burning. Good news was I used up the candle and the house was still intact.

Poor Joy. I'm wondering if she falls asleep at night wondering what catastrophe I might cause during the night. Or maybe she just wakes up feeling grateful to be alive. Yeah, that's it....I bring out the best in people!

Good Heaven...it's 2011!!!

Apparently Joy and I have been slacking in the blogging department. I can't believe it's 2011! Time is literally flying by. It seems like only yesterday that we moved in together in a non-lover sort of way. Now it's a whole new year and I'm excited for what it will bring. As for me, I'm in my final semester and it feels weird to say that I'm graduating in May. I'm pretty scared about that actually. My plans are still to move towards the Twin Cities, work, study for the LSATs, and hopefully get into one of the laws schools in the area. But I've learned not to plan too much because nothing ever goes the way I plan it to. Time will tell so I'll just take things day by day. So far life is great.  =]

Since the new year I've gotten to try many new and exciting things. I'm learning how to ice skate for a class and my boyfriend introduced me to boot hockey which is a ton of fun! I also got to go to my first NHL game and the Wild won. Plus I tried something I never thought I would try...sushi. It was flash fried crab and a veggie kind. It was quite delicious. I even started the semester by working back at the University Center at the desk. I love it and it's great to be back.

I can't really speak for Joy though. Right now she's out partying like a rockstar while I'm taking a study break. I'm sure she'll delete this before many people read this, but I have to say she looked rather foxy tonight. Oh Joy...
