what are you excited about?

Postby ladypenelope » Sat Jan 28, 19:30 2012

I have just finished the application for a new job. This is practically my dream job so I'm super excited about it and can't wait to find out if I get an interview!

What's happening in your life that has you excited?

I'm working on a pretty cool project that's starting to come together, which is exciting. Unfortunately I have so much other work to do that I need to make it a lower priority, but I can't wait to finish it.

My birthday is next weekend, and my boyfriend is coming to visit the weekend after that. Fun times shall be had.

In the longer-term future, I'll be graduating this May and I'm excited (but also terrified) to finally get out of school and start doing real things with my life.

I am excited by electricity. The power has been out here for the past two hours and for the past half hour I have been sitting in the dark. Now I have electricity again!

Yes, i am easily excited.

Electricity is awesome. After the first 3-day-long power outage I went through I started to be really grateful whenever I have power.

I bought a record player and a bunch of old records from one of my friends but haven't been able to use it because I didn't have the right adapter to hook it up to my speakers. I finally ordered one and it's supposed to be here next week, and before my friend moved he bought me one of my favorite albums and had someone mail it to me, and it's supposed to be here on the same day! I'm so excited to start listening to that shit.

I'm single. I'm working on coming out as a raging homogay. I just moved. I'm nervous but also excited. Yeah.

Postal service interview tomorrow. I delivered mail for 4 years so I'm a shoe-in, and am pretty excited to hit the streets again.

I'm excited for my boyfriend to come back from his business trip tonight, the bed has been way too cold.

I'm excited about my new "intro to analysis" math course this semester although the suck-age of my other courses cancel it out.

I'm excited to have food in the fridge again after a good month of scraping by on canned veggies, doritos, and ramen.

I'm excited to have actual work to do at my research assistant-ship job instead of just sitting around with nothing to do and dreading whether I'm fired.

Well, Lakewood. But yeah, I'm pretty sure both are located in Ohio :).

I don't know about tobogganing, though.

I'm excited about my church's plans to build a new church centre. There are so many things that we'd love to do/do better for our community (e.g. weekly lunches for seniors instead of only having events a few times a year, parenting courses, debt counselling, youth stuff, better provision for the preschool the church runs) that we just don't have the facilities for at the moment and it will be amazing when we do (hopefully in about 3-4 years).

I'm excited to be getting out of the Army after five years, finishing up my last year of school, and wearing real clothes again.

Oh, and since I'm moving to PA, I'm excited for fall. I haven't seen a real fall in five years. I miss the leaves changing colors. Here they just turn an ugly brown color and fall off the trees, sometime around the end of December, usually.

Hey whaaaaaat. I lived in Lakewood last summer and am still around those parts every few months or so.

I'm excited for my first SCUBA lesson tonight!

I am so jealous! I want to SCUBA! Damn asthma. :(

I am... uh. I'm not so much excited by anything right now as completely overwhelmed. AAaaaaaughfirstdayofclass.

Also when I'm not panicking I'm still kind of in the floaty mellow from going to Hawaii. ;)

Already restricted breathing gives rise to more embolisms, I think. My lady has minor asthma but is cleared to dive. I know exercise induced or "winter" (cold) asthmatics are not allowed because of the physicality and temp of diving.

-Just sent in an application for a summer-long nature camp in Minnesota
-I am ONE (fucking teacher is slow to reply) reference away from sending in my Americorps NCCC application (that would be ten months of travelling around doing service projects in the US).
-about to start the application process for the University I'm transferring to (which I'll go to fall of 2013 if I do Americorps, or fall of this year if I don't!!)
-I will have my Associate of Science in may.

Yeah SCUBA for me means = potential death :( I so wanted to go scuba diving with the turtles. *crie*

I am excited now, first day of classes is done and the new students in my class are awesome. (About half of them are ones I had last semester, and they are also awesome.) I always worry that there will be a horrible disconnect between those I've seen before and those I haven't, but it didn't happen! woo!

Now I collapse from tired.

My new class schedule is NUTS hard. I think it'll be very good for my vitality, if maybe not my health per se.
