This is a picture of my computer...on the fridge. The only place I get internet. I just stand on a chair and get on everyone's nerves who tries to get food. You know, I'm not really sure how I found out I could get interent up there...I just had a feeling, and I was right.

Today is a very special day to me. Today is the '99 days until graduation' mark. 13 more weeks of student teaching to go. I feel like after I graduate I can finally stop thinking about graduation! It will be great!
So, something kind of exciting happened today. Don't know if I should share yet...Well, a lady from a museum I've wanted to work for got back with me today. She said they have part-time positions open for the fall...doing what I really want to do! (teach art in an after school program) and she said to send in my resume. I really think I want to do this. I have a lot of reasons to leave the area, but oddly I just don't want to. I'm going to follow my heart, and my heart says "Umm, slightly undecided, but a plan is starting to form" and "I wish sugar was good for me".

This is the best snow day ever! The flakes are HUGE! I love it! Yesterday was pretty amazing too. After everyone got back from sledding we were planning on going over to a friend’s house for dinner. Well, the roads were so bad and half the people were already at our house that the guys who were throwing the dinner agreed to make it here! It was great! The house was packed, and to show our appreciation we made it “Happy Eddie Day!” (Eddie was whose house we were supposed to go to).
GREAT NEWS!!! I just got another phone call! NO SCHOOL TOMORROW! I can’t stop dancing! Apparently power is out around P-town too, so come on over! Plenty of power here. Happy Snow Days everyone!

Too AWESOME!!! I got ANOTHER snow day today! And get this!!! I’ve got ANOTHER ONE TOMORROW!!! When I got in my car I felt like I was in a cave with all the snow on it. I only went to my car to get sleds for my roommates (which I forgot I took out of my trunk, and put them behind my dresser this summer). I’m lame, and don’t feel like getting out of my p.j.s today. Maybe tomorrow I’ll go sledding, on my OTHER snow day. I’ve been up since 4:30am, because I wanted to get some things done before school started, and I’ve been working on them here and there throughout the day. But my routine usually consists of:
1st making a plan of what needs to get done.
2nd realizing that I’m hungry.
3rd making something so I’m not hungry anymore.
4th eating until I’m sick, because I don’t want to get hungry again while I’m working.
5th getting tired from eating so much.
7th waking up.
8th realizing I have things to do.
9th realizing that I’m hungry again.
10th repeat steps 1-10.
I honestly have gotten some work done today though, so don’t worry mom (I know you called Miranda this morning to check and see if I was being productive or not).

8 Favorite TV Shows:
2. I don’t really watch enough to care about much else…
8 Things I Did Yesterday:
4. Talked to friends and family
8. Slept (Sundays are the best)
8 Things I Look Forward To:
1. GRADUATION (surprising, I know)
2. Thursdays to watch The Office
3. 2:30pm (When school lets out)
6. Long weekends
7. Feb. 14th (Covers most of the top: it’s a Saturday, long weekend, and I’m sure I’m going to eat dinner. And who knows. Some episodes of the Office might be watched.)
8. The next crazy adventure that comes my way
8 Favorite Restaurants
1. I don’t eat out much. (I like to cook)
8 Things on My Wish List
1. A stinking diploma
2. A great job, or some awesome opportunity
3. More snow days
4. Unlimited free time
5. A house out in the country
6. Hmm, I’m out of things to wish for.
I have an extreme case of senioritis, if you haven’t been about to tell. I think I’m going to have a party in a few days to celebrate the 100 days until graduation mark. Man! I really have a problem. Homework time!
One of my friends I worked with a couple summers ago emailed me yesterday to see if I wanted to be their Handiland Director (arts and crafts) at a camp in CA. I kind of just emailed him to say I would. So, I guess now I have plans for the summer. This is an exciting thought. PS- If anyone, ANYONE knows of anywhere, ANYWHERE that might need an art teacher let me know! (Or if there is some other opportunity you think “wow, Mallory would be perfect for this!” I’m really game for anything.)
Did I mention it’s a snow day? :)

New York City
Wherever the wind sends me….
If any of these places appear to be your residents or place of previous occupancies, most likely they are. Expect me to crash/travel with you during the designated time. Thank you.

I don't know how many I told I was going to make up my mind Dec. 22nd on what on what I was going to do with myself after graduation, but that really didn't happen. I'm more undecided than I was before. I have what I want to happen, but that just isn't feeling right. And we all know how things really end up. Last time I made plans for my future they disappeared from under me, and something much better unfolded. I'm hoping something similar happens (without the heartbreak), and I'll figure something out soon. I've been really thinking about going back to this this summer: That was the good life. As for right now I'm just down here at freezing school, getting ready for hopefully my last semester. New goal for 2009: Not blog about what I should do with life, and live. I've done a pretty good job with just living, but lately I've been doing more thinking. Just thinking doesn't get me anywhere. Time to move (maybe figuratively, maybe literally).

The first day of 2009 turned out to be a good one, indeed. My friends Cody and Jen went with me to the Newport Aquarium, which was fun. When we got there some of my friends from SSU happened to be there, too. That was neat to see them. After an edifying time at the aquarium, we went to the Omnimax! That is one of my favorite things on earth to do. Only now I want to go rafting down a river...again...real bad.
Happy New Year Everyone!
