Zombie Walk

Last night was the Zombie Walk in Louisville which was an experience if nothing else. If you’ve never heard of a “zombie walk” this will sum it up, or at least Louisville’s version of it: the zombies meet up on at the corner of Bardstown Rd. and Eastern Parkway and walk a couple blocks letting people take their picture and ending at a pizza joint. Apparently this has been going on for a couple years now but I had no idea about it until some of my local flickr friends mentioned it on twitter. I was surprised at the number of zombies out; there were probably 200 of them running amok. I’ve never got the fascination with zombies and that whole genre of movies but it was funny to see what extremes people went to. I think the best part of the evening was when a TARC bus (public transportation) was stopped in the middle of the road and zombies were beating on the windows. I can’t imagine what was going through the riders heads if they had no idea what was going on. HA. My camera and I were fighting most of the evening because I left my speedlite […]

Fall 2008

I’ve successfully completed the first two weeks of classes for the fall semester. When I started on the 19th I had four classes: Intro to Music, English 102, Modern Social Problems, and Beginning Japanese. I had a feeling I would have to drop Japanese before I even went to the class because it’s a difficult language to learn. If I was working 10-20 hours/week I could give it the attention that it needed, unfortunately, I’m working 30-35 hours. When I originally made this schedule last semester I was still planning on staying at that school and Intro to Music was part of WKU’s curriculum but I’ve found out it’s not part of UofL. It’s really confusing which is why I’m going to go to an adviser who knows about what will transfer and what won’t. Needless to say the Intro to Music class was dropped but I was too late to add on another class. You would think that they would give you more than one day to add a class. Oh well, I’ll get done with school eventually. I’ve enjoyed my Modern Social Problems class so far, because my sociology instructor from last semester also teaches this course. I […]

Happy Birthday!

In a little while I will be turning 24, and while it feels insignificant, like many birthdays do after the age of 20, I have many things to be happy about this year. I have a great group of friends, friends that I’ve grown up with, as well as friends that I’ve met in the last year. On top of that I’ve finally figured out what I want to do with my life and what needs to be done to achieve it. I really don’t think any gift can top that feeling of independence. I’m not sure what kind of celebrating I’m getting into this weekend. I have the entire weekend off and my brother Roy is coming in Saturday from Seattle. I have a feeling we’re going to end up in Louisville Saturday night to celebrate. I’m sure there will be a couple drinks on my part. The following weekend I have plans with friends that I’ve grown up with. The photo above is from my first birthday on August 7th, 1985. I wanted to find a photo of my siblings and I together and this was the only one in which I had clothes on. According to my […]
