As I told my sister this morning, I have senioritis. Bad.

Since I have currently abandoned the idea that I will be a journalist after I graduate, I am getting frustrated by the people who ask me what I am going to do when I graduate, and even more frustrated by those who won't accept the answer, "I have no idea!"

And the thing is, I don't have any idea. I'm okay with it, so why aren't other people? I have a lot of "marketable" skills, so I'm not that worried. The world is my oyster, or rather New York city is my oyster.

In college they have places you can get pitchers of beer for a penny. This isn't helping the senioritis. Don't worry family, I'm making good choices :)

Shutterfly Share Site

I use Shutterfly to upload, share and order pictures, and I would highly recommend it to anyone who doesn't use it, especially with the new feature they offer users- Share Sites. Basically a website with all my albums, you can view, save and order pictures from any of these albums (including all my London photos).

Check it out:

Apartment Science

Great news- Mediacom, our cable and internet provider, came during a scheduled appointment time (for the first time since I moved in a year ago) and installed our cable and fixed our internet, which means no more marking out exact locations in the apartment where I can use someone else's wireless network. Phew!

Today is the last day of work week, and this old girl is more than ready for rush to start.

Last night my roommates and I cleaned out our fridge (exciting, I know. Don't worry, we went out afterward). After all the sub-letters this place had seen, you would be shocked and horrified to know what we pulled out of the back of the fridge- perishables dating back to January, strains of mold that probably never before existed and more cans of half eaten Funfetti frosting than I could have ever imagined (left open after a few months, not as fun...). We took three garbage bags to the dumpster, wiped down all the shelves and are looked at our happy little faces shining back in the reflection of now barren shelves realizing we probably needed to grocery shop....

Found Internet

I finally found a place in my apartment that will pick up someone else's wireless internet, so the blogging can continue. Except not now. I have to go to the house for work week.

Today Glamour magazine's September issue unveiled its top 10 college women, one of whom is my dearest friend, Laura Merritt. Laura never ceases to amaze me with her talents and warm heart, and in the last few years she has finally been getting some much deserved recognition.

Most recently, Laura has been pouring her heart and soul into an internship with Senator Chris Koster, a democratic candidate for Missouri Attorney General. For those of you who are eligible voters in Missouri, get to the polls August 5th.

Laura's baby, however, is her nonprofit organization, I am, which promotes stem cell research. Laura lives day in and day out with rheumatoid arthritis and would greatly benefit from advancements in stem cell technology. We are currently working on a new website, and until it's up, contact me with questions or if you have any desire to get involved :)

*Orgullosa means proud in Spanish.
