2012 and the new era of chrisland

So it has been a year and more since I last posted,since nobody reads this blog, it is more like a personal journal that I only read. I do not mind really all that much as it is just a forum for me to look back at later to see what was going on or what I was randomly thinking.
First off, the apartment was okay to live in. After painting and going through midterms, to finals to finishing my fall semester. I have another year to go and then I will have accomplished a degree. That is amazing to me as I never finish anything, I guess one might say I have ADD as I tend to go off on tangents alot. :)
We moved after living in the house over the garage for a year and a few months, to go and buy a house! We are now in the middle of painting and remodeling so this blog will go unattended for quite some time. But, then it doesnt matter as I am the only one who comes here... my safe place on the web.
I plan on going back to school in the fall.... cross ones fingers that school will still be available!

I have never been so happy to be moving... most of us dread moving as it means packing and unpacking.
The fun thing about moving is that you get to pick what you want to bring along to the next spot,what will fit and wont. It is hard to go through the massive flotsam that one has accrued through the time at one place,which is amazing considering I haven't bought that much stuff!
The reason I cannot wait to move is that we have been living at my mother in law's home for a year now to help out with her mortgage and since the bank has yet to sign a modification for her loan,we just can't wait any longer..... and seriously, I need to have a kitchen that is mine and mine alone. It is exhausting and somewhat bothersome to constantly worry if your coffee pot is on the right counter and did one take up too much space in the fridge... and there is the fact that her family likes to come over and eat everything in sight. Now mind you, I have no problems feeding the masses but come on now... every week? Uh no no and NO.
We are going to have a whole place to ourselves!! My husband says yay to the fact that if he forgets to bring a robe to the shower, he can stroll to the bedroom free and breezy!! haha.
Now, off to find boxes to pack!

Deciding to go back and be the oldest in the class at college. Now that is one scary idea that floated through the head and got stuck behind the cerebellum last month. Much to my dismay it seemed to take root and started to sprout other ideas... omg! Here I am a middle aged woman and I am going to go back to college and actually get that degree. No way, it can't be true, you say, done I say.
Now the thing is that Horticulture is not one of those new sexy degrees that is all the rage, but on the other hand, it can be the most important degree to have now that the people on this planet have decided to be more aware of their environment.Yes, having that degree will help the planet!

how do you

It constantly amazes me how people interact and behave around others. What is the normal standard for dealing with others and why do some act a certain way under usual circumstances.
Reaction can occur so swiftly that it is instinctive and therefore, can one be construed as insane?
Is it a chemical reaction to the behavior that makes the person say or do certain behaviors? It would be nice if humans came with a user's guide.

I have been told

I have been told that I should write books. That my style of writing is interesting and refreshing,me thinks that it is just okay. Never really thought I had anything of interest to say and that anybody would want to read it. So, here it goes... if a 16 year old out in the middle of the ocean can do this, well, then why not me too.

This will be a random topic kind of blogging... thoughts,rants,vents and maybe someday the vestiges of a book.... time will tell.

Thank you for reading....
