The Eclectic HodgePodge

Wednesday, May 11, 2011

Another Wednesday,
another HodgePodge with Joyce!
Link up with her,
play along!

1. How many times have you moved house?

Six times to date.
I'm counting the move to my dorm in NC as only once
(I lived in the same dorm for 3 years),
Each move between apartments counts;
and I'm only counting the first move to Budapest.

2. What subject would you study if you had a year to devote it?

Cooking. In Italy. Tuscany, please!
I'd love to take a year
and just learn all their secrets.

3. What in this world breaks your heart?

SO many things.

Let's just see 2 charities that I think we should all donate to:
having acces to clean water is something
everyone ought to have
animal cruelty is unacceptable.
there's no reason for it.

4. What is one thing that symbolizes the time in which you live? Why?

I was going to say cell phones,
but really - I think laptops are more prominent.
It's how people stay in contact with friends and family,
how people get their work done,
how people meet new people (dating websites, blogging friends, etc),
make plans for travel,
You get my point?

5. Favorite bumper sticker/t-shirt slogan?

6. How do you like your spaghetti?

Made by my dad.

7. Advice for a soon-to-be graduate?

You've still got time to do the things you want to do.
Graduation doesn't mean 'freedom' is over.

8. Random Thought
11.5 days left until my thesis is due


  1. Cute tee shirt! But it makes sense!!! That plate of spaghetti looks so good, ugh, I'm hungry.

    I enjoyed reading your replies, and yes, fresh water for those who don't have it and saving and peventing animal cruelty are important!

  2. Great answers! Loved the Calvin and Hobbes comic, too. And the T-shirt slogan! :-)

  3. Ha-love that comic strip! Good luck getting that thesis completed!!

  4. Good luck with the thesis!!! I recently completed the documentation required for a historical marker. It wasn't a thesis - but it sure felt like one. I didn't know whether to jump for joy - or cry in relief when I was done!

  5. Great comic. Hang in there, your thesis will be done in no time - easy for me to say. Do you have to defend it?

  6. Awww...I love that comic strip!! Good luck as you wrap things up on your thesis. I am very impressed!!

  7. Great answers! And oh, i am SO with you on wanting to learn Italian in Tuscany... ahh, bliss... and now you have me wanting to watch "Under the Tuscan Sun"! :-)

  8. Congrats on the (almost) done thesis!


Thank you all so much for your comments! I'm only happy when I have comments. Really. You are contributing to my future happiness right now! XOXO
