April 26 - 30

Wow the end of another month, wow!

April 30, 2009: So after 2 finals in 4.5 hours today I regressed and played with these little wind-up smiley faces.  And then decided to have a photo shoot with them in the natural sunlight coming in my window! It helped me smile that is for sure!

April 29, 2009: I was inducted into the Psi Chi honor society today.  It is a honor society for psychology majors who excel in their subjects - it was a very nice luncheon and a welcomed distraction from studying!

April 28, 2009: I was so tempted to blow off finals steam and blow this dandelion puff but then I saw how many more were around campus and felt bad for the grounds crews who would have to weed them!

April 27, 2009: What a mouthful! I thought when ordering the "veggie delight" roll I would get your standard one bite veggie roll...nope! It was so good though.

April 26, 2009: See the date at left....and this was at 8pm at night! The high for the day was 93!!! In April!? Yikes stripes! Thank goodness for the lack of humidity.

April 21-25

Enjoy the latest pictures from my "trip"

April 25, 2009: AU has so many gorgeous lavender plants, and many other amazing plants around campus.  This morning walking to the metro to head to work I saw the first lavender bud - not so aromatic yet, but I bet by next week it will be! 

April 24, 2009: I got an iced italian soda (i guess they only come iced, hm?) today before going into an extra credit thing and was surprised to see the above on the coat.  We (my family and me) have known that many plastic cups, etc are made with corn as a binding agent, which for my mom who is very allergic to corn - very nice to know that it is clear as day that she CANNOT drink from this cup!

April 23, 2009: I am a jury duty magnet! Seriously, this is the 4th time I have been called - first time in NY - and man they are much stricter on the whole postponing - in NJ, just mail a reason why - and maybe they will try again.  NY - you enter a date when you are available and you better show up then - or dun dun dun....

April 22, 2009: This picture was taken by a guest blogger - the little girl I shadowed all semester "C" she was looking at my camera and wanted to take a picture of her cuddlies - Lambie and Contour. 

April 21, 2009: Okay, so you cannot totally see it - so it is either a picture of the red random rash on my cheek - or a very odd picture or me (-:

April 17 - 20

Here is the latest!

April 20, 2009: Yom Hashoah began tonight and we had a ceremony and lit candles in honor of the 6 million Jews who died during the Holocaust.

April 19, 2009: JSA E-board 2009 at the kickoff of Holocaust Remembrance Week where we has a wonderful survivor come and share her story.

April 18, 2009: One of my religious school students during out You Be The Judge session that day. Despite his lounging he was very involved with the lesson!

April 17, 2009: A kid at the Child Development Center, where I intern, fell asleep like this - under the desk with her feet on the filing cabinet!

April 12 - 16

Half-way through another month, wow!

April 16, 2009: There's the sun! It was a gorgeous Spring day today with not a single cloud visible. I was hanging out on a bench on the quad before class and thought the AU and US flag looked quite picturesque. 

April 15, 2009: Today was the 11th anniversary of getting diagnosed with Central Auditory Processing Defecit and the beginning of a long road of learning about who I was and how to still be a bumblebee flying in the air! I am flying but an air head - I made the sign I am holding and then took the picture and THEN realized it was mirror image OOPS!

April 14, 2009: April showers bring may flowers because it rains so hard, it floods and the pilgrims float ashore! It POURED for 2 days straight, we do need the rain, but did it have to be 45 degrees and rainy, in April!?

April 13, 2009: Mailing my taxes, Uncle Sam dipped into the pockets this year but it could have been worse right? I mean it would have been better if I received a check but guess not!

April 12, 2009: At our JSA board meeting we also celebrated Rachel's 20th birthday with 'yummy' Pesach cookies! She was very happy - the facial expression is a running JSA joke of pictures of her and food.

April 6-11

Here are the last few days, Happy Passover!

April 11, 2009: I found a DC secret garden! Well it isn't a secret, but it is magical and beautiful. I explored Dumbarton Oaks today.  It is an amazing garden connected to a museum library owned by Harvard (in DC, yeah....).  I cannot wait to go back in a few weeks when everything is in bloom!

April 10, 2009: Take that Pharoh!! Jen's shul sent this to her in the Pesach care package (all I got was a chocolate bar and b'dikat chametz kit!) Now, what is a better way to celebrate Pesach then with a Pharoh punching bag?

April 9, 2009: Well I have a tendency to get injured on first day yom tov! 3 years ago it was a broken nose, this year a nasty burn to the thumb - the oven mit decided to not work as I was trying to take something out of a 400ยบ oven!!

April 8, 2009: Happy Pesach!! Here is the pretty seder plate all ready for the Seders. Seders were great and very yummy! Chag Sameach!

April 7, 2009: Mom came to visit for Passover and she edited a paper...don't worry we had fun before and after the editing session too!

April 6, 2009: Chocolate Seder time! I led the JSA 2009 Chocolate seder and this shows how we replaced the normal seder plate items with yummy chocolate alternatives!

Enjoy my little trick last time? I promise no more jokes (-: Enjoy the latest adventures!

April 5, 2009: We spent the warm afternoon at Brandywine State Park - here Murphy and I are by the lake before taking a nice walk around the grounds. 

April 4, 2009: GOT MILK!?? I do now! Yup real milk - it was an interesting experience - last time I drank this it was Nov. 1997 - wow-ee!

April 3, 2009: An early birthday dinner for my dad. That my friends in Tempura battered ice cream. I guess its like a baked alaskan - hot and cold - weird.

April 2, 2009: This Janney Elementary School. It looks like I will be interning here with the Special Education dept come the fall!

Wednesday, April 1, 2009


Well. Here I am 3 months into Project 365. It has had its amazing moments and photos and also some challenges in finding something to take a picture of that day.  Some days I spend all my time thinking "what will be tomorrow's picture" or "oh no it is already 3pm and I have no picture." So after much internal debating I have had to come to terms with the fact that it is too much of a hassle and it is affecting my life too much to continue doing project 365.  I will always look for great snapshots of my day and will for sure look for the beauty in my daily life because I know I have gained that over the last 3 months.  Maybe I will try again in the next few years when my days are more varied and my life a bit more interesting. So until then thank you for following me on this journey up until now and I hope we meet again... you can also scroll down and see the last pictures of my journey around the sun.

April Fools!!!!
Did I have you there? Really? Oh stop it! I really was planning this all day!! Okay without further ado the last few days, and no worried I AM CONTINUING to do Project 365, so keep checking back!

April 1, 2009: JSA held a fundraiser at the local smoothie place today. We got a percentage of the profits from noon-8. I enjoyed a yummy smoothie and held my club, yay!

March 31, 2009: Have I mentioned AU is gorgeous in the spring? Here is a picture to prove that. 

March 30, 2009: I saw this deer from my living room window along with 2 others eating their breakfast! I ran grabbed my camera with high zoom lens, attached it and grabbed this shot as the deer ran off!

March 29, 2009: Pesach shopping! Of course these two items I cannot and will not eat but they pretty much capture the spirit of Passover, matzah and gefilte fish. Okay so there is a ton more to the spirit of the holiday, I mean the spirit found in the Pesach aisle at Giant!
