The return of the AWOL princess
After several months, I finally return, better than ever!! Ok, maybe not that much better, but I am back. Well, so as not to bore you too much with what I've been up to the past 6 months, I'll sum it up in a few short sentences:
Finished 2nd year of college. Quit horrible RA job. Got MUCH better job at vet clinic. Moving into a new 4-bed/bath apartment next week.
Well, the aniversery of Katrina came a went, with all the bells and whistles (enphasise on bells). At first I though about going down to St. Louis Cathedral in the Quarter and one of the bell ringing memorials, but when I woke up on Tuesday, I just didn't feel up to it. I was just so sick of hearing about the slow recovery effort, FEMA's endless list of pitfalls, and the perpetual hurricane blame game.
I remember 4 years ago on the 1st aniversery of 9/11, I wrote here that we were all affected by the events of that day. Well, if I was "affected" by 9/11, then Katrina was a literal slap in the face. Everyday as I drive around town I am reminded of that disaster. I really can't wait till I go back up to school and get away from all this.
