My Baby and Wanted Ads

There's a little boy that lives two doors down from me named Luke. He's five years old and he has Autism, and I love him more than ducks. I babysit him once or twice a week every spring while his mom is teaching night classes and his dad is coaching softball at one of the local Vo-Tech school, along with his eight-year-old brother, Josh.

Notes

I was flipping through my notes today and found a page of just random thoughts, and I was kinda shocked. I vaguely remember writing these, and you can tell I was falling asleep because my handwriting gets progressively worse :). As I get closer to sleep, though, my thoughts become more and more profound, and I feel the need to post these and expand on some.

Sanity and the Lack There Of

I am extremely interested in psychology. I have been ever since I read a book on psychology from a series of science books given to me by a family member. I found some podcasts by Dana Leighton that are his lectures in his classes, and I downloaded two series of podcasts: Abnormal Psychology and Social Psychology. I've been listening to his lessons and enjoying them. I'll be listening to these this summer, hoping to get some education while I'm sitting around doing crafts.

Problems and Smiles

So I'm a horrible insomniac, and it's almost two in the morning and at this point I'm giving up on trying to fall asleep. If I'm gonna fall asleep tonight, it'll come when it comes.

Star Wars and Cakes and Mentions

I'm watching Ace of Cakes repeats right now, and this one is the one where they make an R2D2 cake for Lucasfilms and get to go to the ranch. And when I say the ranch, I mean THE ranch. Skywalker Ranch. And then they meet the real R2D2. The real one they used in the movies. I am, like, ├╝ber-jealous. I LOVE Star Wars. Visiting the ranch is on the list.

Hello, blogging world!

I'm listening to "Time of the Season" redone by Straight No Chaser, my new favorite group. They're these twelve men singing popular songs… acapella. They're awesome.
