Busy, Busy Beaver.

Hey Bloggy Friends!

I hope you've all had a marvelous weekend. Ours was really nice. We've been so busy around here lately. I guess you can tell, given my sparse blogging over the past week. That may be how it will remain for the next few months, or at least until I find a groove in my hectic, new schedule.

In this past week I completed my first week of classes, started back to work at PTC and accepted an internship position at WRTI, a classical/jazz/news radio station here in Philadelphia. I'm really excited about it. I'm not sure what my duties will be exactly, but I've been told I will accompany a reporter, helping him gather interviews and sound clips for on-air news packages. It will be an excellent opportunity for me. To add to my already crazy schedule, we also begin our radio show, "Fabulously Focused," next week. Now you know why I haven't had time to blog! I'm still here, though, and will make my presence known as much as I can. I hope you will too!

I won't get into too many details about our weekend, because it was pretty laid back for the most part. It wouldn't be a very entertaining story. The highlights included a visit with Jude and Lou, coffee and carousing in Queen's Village and of course a day of completing chores. It was so beautiful in Philadelphia today. I'm not positive, but the temperatures must have reached the low 60's. We walked out this afternoon in full winter gear, only to find that we didn't need any of those extra layers! I could have stayed out all day. I had to take my camera out this afternoon to gather some shots for my design class. I'll share it with you when I'm finished. I'm going to do a photo essay on Iovine's Produce Market in the Reading Terminal. I'm excited about this class because I will finally get a chance to learn PhotoShop!

Now we are cozily cooped up in our apartment. Alan is preparing our dinner. He's trying a new recipe, Bengali Style Fish. We found it in a thai-curry recipe book we picked up last week. We're both huge fans of curry. I can't wait to try it out!

Everything else is going very well. I'm just trying to stay focused on my studies. It's going to be a very busy semester, even with all the extra stuff aside. You should see my list of books to read, papers to write and projects to work on. I'll definitely be kept on my toes over the next few months - like a ballerina!

Have a great night. I'll chat with ya'll soon.

Love, Josh

Congrats on the internship! Sounds like an exciting learning opportunity! I'm busy too girl. I've spent all weekend in the design studio working and still am not finished. Just remember, when the going gets tough the tough go shopping! (no just kidding) the tough get going! Hang in there! Bye Bitch!

Hi! Just finished working on my (expletive) movie. I'm so sick of it. Ha-ha! I'm a details person when it comes to my videos (the rest of life I just wing), and I really sweat the small stuff, technically speakin'. I laughed out loud when you said about learning Photoshop. It's great news (and I encourage you), but I have spent the weekend in Photoshop. OMG. Take me away Calgon. Please. It's like you and all that snow in Kentucky.

You guys didn't say anything about all my curry cookbooks when you were here. I guess it was too dark in the kitchen. Or maybe we were just all plastered. (Yeah, I hear that.) Curry was my first love in the kitchen for many years. I believe authentic Indian curry is difficult. I worked very hard at it for years. I moved on to Italian (much easier).

I'm not going to worry as much about you this semester because I realize now you are a great student. I hadn't really known that about you. Now I do. But just the same I wish you luck and I hope more than anything you can enjoy the work you must do. The internship sounds promising.

Love you. Have a great week, lobster pants.

Awesome... I'm so excited for you with the internship!!! It sounds like a good fit for you.

Well, the good and bad of the school semester... hard work now, but it will definitely be worth it in the end.

Good luck, gurl! You're the best ballerina I know. :)
