It has been a rollercoaster couple of days for me. However, there is much to look forward to in the next few days: The Office baby episode, Oscars, and the final two episodes of Numb3rs. Which, thanks to Spring Break, I will most definitely be back home for.

Also, it's that time of year again:

2010?!?

Hard to believe that this year is almost over - seems like just yesterday we were all waiting for Obama to be inaugurated, and now he's been president for almost a year. And the decade is also coming to a close; those ten years have just flown by. I feel so old.

Quick year end wrap-up:

Attending a New Year's Eve party at my aunt&uncle&cousins later tonight, something I've never done in all my years of celebrating NYE. Usually we just sit around in front of the TV eating shrimp and watching Dick Clark's Rockin' New Years Eve with Ryan Seacrest - which has become a thing in the past few years, as I always like to see how Dick Clark is looking in the years after he had that terrible stroke. I secretly fear I won't get to see that tonight; although, how will we know it's officially midnight here? And wouldn't everyone like to see the ball drop in Times Square? These are the things I think about.

Probably won't be around LJ much for the rest of the day, though I'll probably be tweeting at the party tonight via my phone. So: HAPPY NEW YEAR! May your 2010 be filled with awesome, happiness and general good things.
pretty_cynical: (OFFICE. i missed you.)
So NBC's official site for The Office has this little thing called "The 12 Days of Christmas" wherein each of the characters reveal what they'll be doing for the holidays. Andy and Creed's are spot-on in terms of characterization and Erin's is absolutely adorable, but I've really been waiting for the Jim and Pam one - they only reveal one each day. Sure enough, today was their day:

I'm pregnant this year, so this will be Jim and my last Christmas where it's just the two of us. Even though the baby hasn't been born, we couldn't resist getting a stocking and filling it with goodies. We don't know the sex, so it's filled with unisex toys: a ball, Big Bird raddle, and Raggedy Ann Doll (Jim's idea of unisex). We got a baby bulb too. It says, “Baby’s first Christmas”, and I added, “In my belly” with a sharpie. We’ve also taken a photo of our baby with Santa - we went to the mall and asked Santa to hold our ultrasound photo up while we snapped a picture - it’s going on the Christmas card.


At 6 months pregnant it isn't easy for me to move around, so Jim will have to do most of the cooking, cleaning and shopping. And he's taller, so it's easier for him to put up the Christmas decorations too. I'm still doing my share; I'm making the shopping list and writing the Christmas cards to my side of the family (featuring a photo of the ultra sound). It's going to be hard on me, but I'll make the most of it ;)


Adorable, right? Between this and the scene in the Producer's Cut of "Secret Santa", we are getting such great stuff - although I am disappointed it's not actually on television. COME ON, SHOW. (Also, I am perfectly at peace with Jim and Pam not knowing the sex, both from a character perspective and a show perspective. It provides an element of surprise for both them and the viewers of the show; gives the writers more time to come to a conclusion - helpful if the team of writers are in disagreement; and there's less of a chance that people will come out hating the chosen sex until the baby's already here. Though still very, very annoyed by the fact that the birth won't be shown until March because of the Olympics. That was a bad decision on all fronts.)

no, really.

I did absolutely nothing today. Nope, didn't even go to class. I just slept until 1:30 PM, made French Toast, and then spent the rest of the day laying in bed watching various things online - Scrubs, last night's TRMS, the 2003 World Gymnastics Championships. I'm wide awake now (as well as showered and clean), and desperately hoping that all classes are canceled tomorrow, since we're under a blizzard warning and it's supposed to be insanely cold all day. I plan on watching Charlie Wilson's War later tonight, since I'll still probably be wide awake, and I have to write a film review on it for World Politics - which is due tomorrow afternoon. I'm really excited to see it (Tom Hanks! Aaron Sorkin's writing!), plus I bought some Ben & Jerry's Half-Baked yesterday to ride out the snowstorm with, so tonight's going to be pretty fun.

Other school related things: My Mass Media&American Politics professor canceled class this week, as well as the presentations on our Content Analysis projects, which are now due on Monday. Totally awesome, as I haven't even started on it - despite having it for a few weeks. Also awesome is the fact that I got a 92% on my Comm Research final project, and our final exam is open note/open book. Just one more thing to not worry about for next week!

-

Regarding the latest news on The Office: FRAKKING HILARIOUS. I'm beginning to think that this isn't so much a network decision as a writer decision, as they possibly haven't figured out that plot yet - even though Pam is technically supposed to give birth in January, based on continuity. Don't get me wrong - I do think it's sad, as you've got three episodes before the Olympics; couldn't you devote an episode to the birth then? No? Instead we've got to wait through almost two weeks of Winter Olympics for something we've all been waiting the entire season for. Honestly, I'd be excited if it was coming after the Summer Games, because yay! Gymnastics! Swimming! But with the Winter Games, there's no sport I'm really excited about. Which makes this whole waiting thing really suck that much more.
pretty_cynical: (WESTWING. oh my darling.)
Ugh, I wanted to do a "Woo-hoo, I'm home, Happy Thanksgiving!" post while I was actually back home, but I was feeling so incredibly lazy during my vacation that I'm doing a post now - right at a time when I have to be anything BUT lazy.

-

Thanksgiving break was good, incredibly low key. Watched all the football games on Thursday - although I had to give up on watching the Giants/Broncos game because a) I was getting frustrated watching it online and b) they were losing, and losing badly. I ended up watching The Office's "Niagra" on NBC in HD with Dad - it was a lot better the second time around, especially having someone else watch it with me. Dinner was great as well, being with just Mommy, Dad, Graham and Monica. Spent both Wednesday and Friday lounging around the house and getting nothing done - we didn't end up spending Friday with my aunt&uncle&cousins, but we'll see them for Christmas, which gives me something to look forward to after school finishes up.

And then on Saturday, I went with the rest of the fam (along with my uncle and my cousins Luke, Mark and Paul) to Graham's football game at Ford Field! They were playing in the State Championships, and even though I had never been to any of his football games, I figured I should go and support him and his teammates - he's a senior this year, so it's his last chance. Plus, it would probably the only chance I would have to visit Ford Field - I don't plan on going to a Lions game anytime soon - and even better that we watched the game from a suite right on the 50-yard line. What made the experience even better is that they won! We were all excited, because it's his school's first football championship in six years - and Graham being a senior, this was made even more special for him. We all got very emotional at the afterparty.

-

Now that Thanksgiving break is over and I'm back at school, it's full speed ahead to the White House to the end of the semester in two weeks - which means all kinds of projects are due. I have my final project in Comm Research due Monday (Which I just realized this past Monday, and now I'm rushing to get it done even though I've had several weeks) and my content analysis project for Mass Media&American Politics due next Thursday. And then there's final exams the week after that, two each on Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday. So yeah, I've got a lot of work to do in the next couple of days - I'm surprised that I haven't had a total breakdown yet. And also disappointed that I won't be able to go to the football game this weekend - Grand Valley is on track to win another National Championship (they last won in 2006) and I'd really like to be there to experience it - although it'll be nationally televised on ESPN, so win-win-win? Ugh, I just hate the final weeks of the semester. So much stress before getting a vacation.

BUT. Numb3rs is a new episode on Friday, and that's always something for me to look forward to.
pretty_cynical: (OFFICE. halpert house.)
November is looking like it'll be Midterms 2.0 for me, at least for the next two weeks. I have my second Sociology exam Monday morning, another take-home essay exam for Mass Media&American Politics due Tuesday, and an online reading quiz for World Politics that needs to be submitted by Wednesday afternoon. And then I have a Concepts of Communication project due the 16th; I've had it since the first few weeks of class, but it's one of those projects where you have to do something and then write a paper about the experience - I'm planning on doing a job shadow of some sort, but I haven't had a chance to ask my professor about contact info because I've been so busy and distracted lately, plus I'd like to have the experience fresh in my mind when it comes time to actually write the paper. Hopefully I can get the job shadowing thing done next week when I don't have anything going on. We'll see.

Other school things: I am now working at GVSU's student-run TV station! I'm one of three producers overseeing this brand-new little comedy show called Loserville, which is kinda-sorta-not really like The Big Bang Theory. Anyway, since it's a new show, we had to do a casting call to find our actors - which, ugh. So many people came out to audition, and it was hard enough remembering who everyone was, let alone looking for the people to fit these specific roles. We ended up getting into a semi-fight with one of the drama shows - we both wanted the same actress, but we weren't allowed to cast her in both our shows (even though she wouldn't have THAT big of a role in either show, and she was the only option for the drama show and our show's top option). We ended up getting her at the last minute simply because the actress put Loserville down as her first choice. I was kinda upset that I had to miss The Office and 30 Rock (and Project Runway, and The Daily Show, and The Colbert Report - the casting session didn't get over with until 12:30 AM!), but I had tons of fun hanging out with the other GVTV producers. They're all a really funny and hyper group and I'm just really excited about getting to experience it all.

I finally did get to watch The Office this morning between classes, and while I really enjoyed it overall, there was just one thing that was kind of off-putting to me. )

Also Immensly enjoying Law & Order (HI MIKE AND CONNIE, YOU GIVE ME SOMETHING TO LOOK FORWARD TO ON FRIDAY MORNINGS WHEN I AM STILL GROGGY BUT HAVE TO GO TO CLASS) - very excited about the 2 hour episode coming next week, and Numb3rs - but that's nothing new. Fridays are definitely becoming my new favorite day of the week.

I may or may not have had an urge to write something, thanks to a picture I found during a random browsing of We Heart It. I'm not entirely sure how it's going to play out yet, but hey, at least I'm attempting to try writing again?
pretty_cynical: (STUDIOSIXTY. hannah harriet.)
This meme in no way makes up for the fact that I haven't done a real-life update in quite some time. )

Other things I need to post about besides real life things: the past three episodes of House and general thoughts on this season of Mad Men - which, sadly, is almost over. Where did the time go, you guys?
pretty_cynical: (NUMB3RS. working girl.)
We interrupt studying for midterms to bring you three and a half of my latest dreams. )

In other news: I loved last night's episode of How I Met Your Mother. Like, a lot.
pretty_cynical: (OFFICE. love the one you're with.)
Reasons why today has been awesome:
  1. I slept in a extra hour from yesterday.
  2. I wore my recently washed "Cookie Loves Milk" t-shirt.
  3. I had frozen hot fudge sundae Pop-Tarts for breakfast.
  4. I watched Modern Family on my break. Excellent show.
  5. I ate a cinnamon sugar bagel from Einsteins while watching Glee.
  6. I have no homework.
  7. Richard Engel showed up on NBC Nightly News.
  8. I had a cheeseburger&fries for dinner.
  9. Keith Olbermann is wearing his normal glasses.
  10. JIM AND PAM ARE GETTING MARRIED TONIGHT.
  11. I've got mint chocolate chip ice cream to celebrate the PB&J wedding.
  12. Project Runway. Enough said.
  13. David Gregory is on The Daily Show tonight.
pretty_cynical: (NUMB3RS. thinking & breathing.)
Note to self: the peach rings were a bad idea. The first few were enjoyable, but having to eat the entire package? Not so much. They were almost too sugary, made even worse by the ice water I drank. We will totally be making peach Jello next time.

ANYWAY. This was probably my favorite season premiere of Numb3rs. )

I realize I have been more invested in Numb3rs than in The Office as of late, and I'm sorry. I'm just as excited as the rest of you, I promise.
pretty_cynical: (Default)
I had an incredibly bizarre fandom-related dream last night. )

Relatedly, vaguest promo ever? I think so. Though I'm really excited that it's FINALLY coming next week and not, you know, months from now - almost a little too excited. And the fact the promo is incredibly vague doesn't help things at all.
pretty_cynical: (MISC. work.)
So I leave for Grand Valley on Wednesday. As in three days from now. I am really not ready to move on to this next phase of my life, despite the fact that a) I FINALLY have on-campus housing after weeks and weeks of impatiently waiting (I'll be living in an on-campus apartment with three other girls, two of them are also transfer students); and b) I have almost everything I need to make this transition, including my own laptop (!!!!!!!). I've been totally psyched out to go there for nearly a year, but now that it's so close to actually happening I'm freaking out. I mean, this will be the first time I've ever lived on my own, away from my family, for an extended period of time. So it's basically a totally new experience for me, and I hope it goes as well as I think it will.

But I have so much to do in those final three days. I did a massive load of laundry comprised of some of the clothes I'm taking with me (also partly because I had no clean clothes left at that point), and today I gathered up all the books/magazines/DVDs I want to take. Tomorrow I need to wash my sheets and towels for the dorm, and attempt to start packing things up. Tuesday Mommy and I are doing some last-minute shopping (mostly for food, plus a couple of last-minute things we couldn't get during our shopping excursion on Friday), and I'll finish packing. Then on Wednesday I leave, and begin the next phase of my life at Grand Valley.

-

I haven't really been doing anything else the past few weeks besides stress over college things. I finally did finish Richard Wolffe's Renegade, which is an absolute relief. I mean, I love Richard Wolffe, but you'd think a guy who has a great sense of humor and found it hilarious that he was jokingly referred to as a "Nazi" on Saturday Night Live would be able to write a book that was at least a bit more engaging; apparently that is not the case. This was an historic election, and if you have the honor of writing the first book about the new president, wouldn't you at least want to make it interesting? I think it just came down to the fact that Richard Wolffe no longer appears on Countdown with Keith Olbermann as the cause of my dread, at least in regards to continuing with it. But I'm really done with it, and the reward to myself was an epic series re-watch of The West Wing. I just finished the first disc of the first season, and OH GOSH, THIS SHOW ♥

-

I still have yet to talk about Mad Men's s3 premiere - will do that sometime tomorrow, plus spoilers for The Office; I will say right now that I have seen those spoilery set pics, and I flailed and squeed right along with the rest of my flist. And keep suggesting Top 5's for me! I've been so busy over the past few weeks that I haven't really had time to think about them, but I will be doing ABSOLUTELY NOTHING this weekend, so I can work on them then. I need something to keep me from overdosing on The West Wing.
pretty_cynical: (ACT. nothing better.)
I've only been home from the hospital for a week, and already I'm falling back into the old habit of sporadic eljay posting. Lack of energy, I guess. The doctors still don't know what's wrong with me - I had a post-hospitalization follow-up appointment on Wednesday, and since things still weren't back to normal, they ordered a study where I wear an oxygen saturation monitor while I sleep, without being on oxygen. That didn't yield anything, so the next step is to re-do the lung function test (if you recall, I passed out during it the first time around), which is our best hope at getting this whole issue resolved. But other than that, I'm feeling about as well as I should be at this point, which is awesome.

I was totally exhausted from the lack of sleep I got Wednesday night (I couldn't sleep in fear that my O2 sats would drop to 89%, the machine would alarm and jolt me awake) that I woke up in a fit yesterday morning around 9, pissed that I had missed the Emmy nominations. I'VE WATCHED IT EVERY SINGLE YEAR. Usually if I think I might wake up late that morning I'll tape it, but that wasn't an option this year because we no longer have a DVR. So I had to go to the Emmy website to look them up, and let me tell you, it was a painstaking effort - the televised announcement just lists the major categories that people actually care about, but the website lists EVERY SINGLE CATEGORY - and instead of listing them by importance (Outstanding Comedy/Drama, Outstanding Actors/Actress, etc), they're listed in alphabetical order, meaning I had to scroll through the entire list to make sure I got all the important categories. So here are some not-so-brief thoughts on the nominees. )
pretty_cynical: (ACT. ponytail.)
I've been surprisingly productive over the past couple of days. Like, I actually got out of the house and went places! Yesterday, Mommy and I went to the mall, as I needed to exchange a pair of boxers I bought at American Eagle (I originally got a large, thinking that with being 100% cotton they'd shrink, but obviously I over estimated how much they needed to shrink - so I exchanged them for a small), as well as stop into the Gap that's there to check on the status of my job application (so many people have applied that hiring manager hasn't looked over them yet, but they took down my name and number.) Mommy and I also stopped into this store that had just opened up a few months ago - Crazy 8, it's called - to pick out a gift for one of her favorite doctors at the hospital, who's having a little girl in June. YOU GUYS, BABY CLOTHES ARE ABSOLUTELY ADORABLE, GIRL CLOTHES ESPECIALLY. Mommy ended up buying this, but this was also a possibility. Cute, right? Can't you just imagine Jim and Pam's (hopefully) little girl wearing such things? I can.

And today I went to the dentist with Graham; surprisingly, I don't dread going there - the dentist is really nice, and today, I caught up on a month's worth of Entertainment Weekly AND got a free sample size toothpaste! Then we stopped at Wal-Mart, since Graham needed to pick up some stuff, and let me tell you: BAD IDEA. I hate going to Wal-Mart as it is, but they're currently in the process of remodeling, so everything's a mess. We had to walk around the entire store nearly three times looking for the shampoo/body care/toothpaste section, until we finally found it on our way out - it was by the other entrance at the other side of the store. GAH.

Taking it easy for Memorial Day weekend, I think. I'm going to be alone for the majority of it, as Graham, Monica and Dad are all going to be refereeing a soccer tournament on Saturday and Sunday. There's a parade downtown that I may or may not go to - depends on what everyone else is doing (although Mommy has expressed a desire to go as well.) My plans are to watch the last batch of Prison Break episodes (I purposefully didn't watch them when they originally aired on TV so that I could just marathon them online), as well as work on my [livejournal.com profile] inrevelations story, which is SURPRISE! due next weekend. Have I started it? Not really - I only have the first line written down and a vague idea of where the story's actually going to go. I got really excited when I first got the assignment, thinking that since I'm finally out of school, I'll have all kinds of time! Where did it go?
pretty_cynical: (MISC. read less; more tv.)
Over the past few days, I've discovered some things, namely a) there probably is something wrong with me when I fall asleep at 2:30 AM and don't wake up until noon the next day; b) peach jello is AWESOME, but it makes me really, really hyper. Like, I ate half a tub of it while watching the Numb3rs season finale, so I think I can partly blame how flail-y my reaction post was on that sweet stuff. And then I ate the other half of it earlier this afternoon while watching the Preakness, which led me into a semi-heated argument with Mommy over who was the better racehorse: Rachel Alexandra or Mine That Bird. (THE OBVIOUS ANSWER IS RACHEL ALEXANDRA, BECAUSE SHE'S THE FIRST FILLY IN 85 YEARS TO WIN THE PREAKNESS. EIGHTY FIVE. AND SHE BEAT ALL THE BOYS, SO THAT'S EVEN MORE REASON. Mommy didn't agree.)

Speaking of the Numb3rs season finale, I did my first screencapping today! I really wanted to make icons and such, but knew it was going to take forever for caps to be posted (if they were ever posted at all), so I did it myself - and was pleasantly surprised at how easy the whole process was. I then preceded to make a .gif which is under a cut because a) it's spoilery, and b) my computer can't handle animation so well. )

I promise to talk about The Office season finale tomorrow. I tried to get my thoughts as articulate as possible before posting them. While I flailed about along with everyone else after it aired, I just wanted to process it for a little (and maybe watch it a few more times, so that like every other big thing on the show, I make sure that it actually happened and that I didn't dream it.) Or maybe putting off posting my reaction is just my way of trying to push the fact that we won't get anything new until the fall out of my mind. I don't know, okay?
pretty_cynical: (OFFICE. what's gaydar?)
No, I still haven't processed TV things yet (and the fact that I just finished watching the Grey's Anatomy season finale isn't helping my thoughts along AT ALL). I did, however, happen upon this article from TWOP about showrunner switches that would be awesome - mentioning Aaron Sorkin taking over The Office, and it made me laugh (mostly because it's true):
Imagine Michael and Dwight pedeconferencing around the Dunder-Mifflin office in circles, picking up random characters as they all rapid-fire idealistic sentiments and literary/sports/historical/political references before dropping out of the parade and tagging someone else in, the lot of them taking breaks only for either some old-timey slapstick or melodramatic speeches about friendship, duty and loyalty. And they sell paper sometimes, but that's not really the point, is it?


I'm going to make blueberry pancakes now.
pretty_cynical: (THIRTYROCK. what the what.)
UM, THERE'S NOT GOING TO BE ANY IMMEDIATE POST-FINALE REACTIONS FROM ME UNTIL SOMETIME LATE TOMORROW, AS I AM STILL PROCESSING THINGS. LIKE, TONIGHT, ONE SHOW SORT OF BROKE MY HEART INTO A MILLION LITTLE PIECES AND THE OTHER FILLED MY HEART WITH JOY. I LITERALLY CAN'T THINK OF ANYTHING ELSE TO SAY RIGHT NOW OTHER THAN "OMG" OVER AND OVER AND OVER.

AND NOW I AM TOO WIRED TO SLEEP, GOSH. TOO BAD MY RACHEL MADDOW PODCAST ISN'T AVAILABLE YET...
pretty_cynical: (OFFICE. in love with italian food.)
I've only been out of school for a week and a half, but it definitely seems like longer. I haven't really done anything major while on break: I make French toast, bum around on the internet, post reactions to the ridiculous things that occur on MSNBC via Twitter, watch Gibbs' daily White House press briefings, get entertained by other TV happenings in primetime, stay up until 2 AM and sleep until 10 the next morning. Rinse and repeat. It's this kind of behavior that makes me desperate to have a job so I'm actually doing something all day instead of being productive; I've applied to a bunch of places, and am now getting through the tail end of the customary week-long waiting period, since no one has attempted to contact me. I just need to go out and do something, before I bore myself to death.

Thoughts on last weeks' AMAZING TV. )

Oh, and I watched the White House Correspondents Dinner! Which just proves how much of a political dork I am, haha. But it was really enjoyable this time around (I haven't watched since Colbert was the entertainment in 2006), as I recognized a lot more celebrities as well as famous newspeople - I was all "!!!!!" every time they showed someone I knew, which was A LOT. And Obama's speech was absolutely fantastic - he was able to make light of himself and his staff without being too harsh, something I really admire in any person, not just a person of power. I really didn't like Wanda Sykes as the entertainment (I was personally gunning for Jon Stewart, or even Hugh Jackman, doing a medley of political songs with a well-choreographed dance routine), and after her bit was over I couldn't help but wonder if it's somebody's job at the WHCA to look over the entertainer's routine to make sure there isn't anything that could be construed as offensive, especially in Wanda Sykes' case. And then I got mad at MSNBC for bringing in two unknown correspondents who took the idea that the dinner is jokingly called "DC Prom" literally by wearing actual wrist corsages and taking each other as dates instead of getting one of their ACTUAL NBC CORRESPONDENTS on the phone and asking them what it's like at the dinner. Oh wells. There's always next year, I guess.

I feel like everyone but me has seen Star Trek already. Which is sad, because I'd really like to go see it, but no one will take/go with me. Same thing with Away We Go premiering in a few weeks. BLERG.
pretty_cynical: (MISC. college.)
I'M DONE!


REALLY. At least, I'm pretty sure I'm done with that college for good, barring any failing grades (which might actually happen, given all the English 102 drama I had this semester.) I can't find out my grades until tomorrow, which has made me all nervous and tense over the past few days. But I'm just going to put myself in the mindset that I did pass all my classes, because I'M DONE, AND I COULD NOT BE HAPPIER. I'm so ready to start things at Grand Valley in August.

Honestly, I can't tell you how I survived this week. I made a to-do list everyday, and (mostly) stuck to it. I looked for something to get excited over each day, whether it was The Rachel Maddow Show every night, an ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC lunch at the on-campus restaurant with Dad on Tuesday, American Idol's Big Band week on Tuesday&Wednesday, President Obama's "100 Days" press conference (and by extension, THESE PHOTOS ZOMG) or 30 Rock on Thursday. I de-stressed the weekend before by watching the NFL Draft with the family. And even with that, I still was moved to tears after I sold my books back on Thursday afternoon because it was storming outside and the phrase "I made it through the rain" couldn't have been more fitting at that moment.

So what am I going to do in the interim five months between now and then? Take it easy, I guess. Finding a job is priority one, but I'm a little wary because a) Michigan's economy is in the toilet and b) I am not the ideal "job" candidate, as I still do not drive despite being 18 - though I did apply to a bunch of places, so I'm just going to wait that out. I plan on reading lots (and not just political stuff!), as well as writing - I have a new [livejournal.com profile] inrevelations assignment that I'm anxious to start, even though I don't know what I'm going to write yet. I want to go to the gym more, and go swimming - I have all kinds of time now! I'll keep obsessing over TV - from season finales that are coming up in the next few weeks (CSI:NY! Numb3rs! The Office! And House, for some reason!) to stuff I get excited about watching over the summer: In Plain Sight, which has become exponentially wonderful now that Joshua Malina has joined the cast; Eureka, for which I've been anxiously waiting months for - JULY 14TH CANNOT COME SOON ENOUGH; and Mad Men, which won't return until August, but I'm just thankful we're getting a third season after how the last season ended. There are no plans for big vacations this summer (we're not going to Camp this year due to financial circumstances, and I highly doubt we're going to Omaha for the College World Series), but my cousin Claire (who goes to Notre Dame) is staying in South Bend for the summer and will be coming to visit! And I've made it my goal to go to a Tigers game this year (my wish is to go to one of the Red Sox/Tigers games in June), but I highly doubt that's going to happen. But I can always hope, right?
