Gardens and Encouraging Internet Network Titles

Summer break! I currently on my break, and have been for about two weeks. It's been SOOOOO nice. But, I've had some unpleasant things to deal with:
1) I don't have any internet at the apartment. I had been stealing from a network entitled "Steal Me" all semester. It was amazing. But Steal Me up and moved away over night at the same time I started break. So I've been sitting around in my apartment with no internet AND no cable (but that's not new), and only two PBS channels to entertain me (thr
ee if you count the all Spanish channel). It's been pretty lame at times, but I discovered Blockbuster's wii rentals, which is totally amazing.
2)BLEMF. The Bloomington Early Music Festival. It's a little lame (sorry, BLEMF). Well, maybe BLEMF is not as lame as is my involvement with it. I did a repeat of the Cantata 161 concert last night and am signed on to sing a Vespers concert on Saturday and Sunday this weekend. Everything about this concert is a mess. And I feel bad about it... But I'm not very enthusiastic about participating in a hot mess, so the experience is pretty bad. This is my second experience this year with putting together a Spanish Baroque concert in less than a week. Which is weird...


I've also had some great developments:
1) Got a church job at Trinity here in Bloomington. I've lusted after the job for a while, and now I feel really priviliged to be singing there! Yay to a new church home!
2) I just planted a garden with my friend Elise! We're both first time gardeners, so we don't know much... But it's so exciting! We planted tomatoes, peppers, green beans, lima beans, squash, zucchini, cucumbers, eggplant, herbs, and flowers. Brian is determined to prove to me that the cucumbers will not survive. And even though I think he's right (I don't think the majority of our plants will survive), I'M determined to prove him wrong!

3) My birthday is coming up, June 4th. Get ready.
4) I dyed my hair blonder.
