Episode 3: Return of the Michigan Guild

The varied peoples of Middle-earth at times found unity in their pursuits, and all too often experienced deep rifts. Engage in lively conversations as we banter about the differences between the Alliances, and recruit for our People as well. Remember, keep it friendly.

Hey all, it's been quite a while since I've been by! RL has been a wench lately :wink: Just checking in, seeing as how I haven't even been on TORC for like a year & a half.

Happy New Year, everyone!

Well, I got fairly lucky, only had to deal with rotten weather once I got into Michigan

Seems like I always have a good trip until I cross the state line :|

Hey again, Arwen!

The only day I actually really enjoy snow is Christmas -- other than that, I'd be set with sunny & 70 everyday :)

Heya Mithy! Welcome back to TORC, and to the thread! :hug:

I enjoy snow as long as I don't have to be out in it. It's nice to look at when you're inside next to a fire with some tea and a laptop.. :D

Essays are done-ish... Indiana's needs some work, Cincinnati's needs a once-over before I print it, and the other two are turned in already. Yayyy grad school. :P

My NYE was boring; I went to bed at 10:30, I think. :D

Yay for essays being done!!! Woot woot!

I started fencing again last night....it reminded me how awful I am at it, and it was pretty frustrating. But, it was fun :) My fore arm is killing me now (boy, am I out of shape!).

Hey, guys!
My semester's been ok so far. It's a lot of work to stay on top of, not as easy to nonsense as last semester, but I think I've been doing a decent job so far :)

Toby- Yup, I am. I haven't heard anything from them yet, but the application deadline isn't until the 16th. I sure hope I get it...not likely though. I feel like I'm never going to find a job.

Mithy- Glad to hear your doing ok. Hang in there! What classes are you taking?

I'm off to Auburn Hills tommorrow for Acquire the Fire (a big youth conferance). I hope all goes well.

I am a glutton for punishment and am still sitting in on a 9am class three days a week. :D Yay me! :D

This week I have a pseudo-interview with one of my Greek professors to practice for the Real Live Very Scary Grad School Interviews which are coming up in a few weeks. :shock: Meep!

Yeh, if only it were based on personality...

I had a mock-interview last week and another one in just over an hour. Gives me an excuse to dress up, at least. :D I keep wearing skirts because I don't own a single pair of dress pants, and all the ones I've tried on at the store just don't fit properly. Grar.

So, where's all that snow they keep promising us!? We've got about an inch. :roll:

No snow here :) Though, it's cold out!!

Sil- Ooh, dressing up :) I agree, dress pants are hard to find.

Off to work, then two days off :)

Ah, I love this weather! It was getting a bit crazy for a while there. I'm not sure where it hit, but over here (Kalamazoo) we had a snow storm about 2 weeks ago. And actually, it snowed last Tuesday too. Mah-velous. But I've been in love with Michigan since Friday. A bit windy but at least it's been warm :D

So in other news, Mith's all done with school for now. I finished my last final on Wednesday and moved out of my dorm on Friday. I'm taking a poli. sci. course this summer though, but at least I have a week of relative freedom before that starts!

How is everyone?

You live in Kalamazoo!!! How come I didn't know that?!?!! I live in Richland, which is 15 minutes from K-zoo (well, the Gull Road part of K-zoo anyways). Maybe I did know that, just didn't realize it...I've only been in the area for 3 weeks now.

Good ol' summer classes. Good luck with the poli sci class--what is your major?

:D :D I know where Richland is! I have a friend who lives there! Yeah, I'm actually currently living with the parentals in Battle Creek for the summer, but I still work & go to class in K-zoo :)

The class is going decently, actually. It's called Women in Politics in Developing Countries, so I actually find it kind of interesting (always a plus!) And it kind of ties in my major, which is Anthropology (double plus!)
