A New Start Down Under!

Hello to all four people who read my blog! Since I’ve graduated this spring and “a senior jayhawk” doesn’t really make sense as my title any more, I’ve started a new one for my year abroad in Australia (Oh, by the way, that’s happening). I have accepted a job working as an Au Pair (similar to a live-in Nanny) for a family of five in Sydney, and am in talks to start with another family in Late December/Early January through June or July of next year! While I’m abroad, I’m hoping to keep this new blog¬†updated even more than than I did with this one. My goal is to write at least once every two weeks! So check it out, follow through wordpress, RSS feeds, or email and keep updated on my life down under!

My Year- 2012 in Pictures & Resolutions for 2013

(In other words: these are the pictures without any people in them that represent my 2012)

My resolutions this year include the following:

  • Do my Laundry at least one a month
  • Finish Watching the rest of the AFI Top 100
  • Get one last summer in Lawrence
  • Go Abroad (Preferably Australia)
