It has been brought to my attention that comments are not getting through on my entries from at least one person. If this has happened to anyone else, please message me. Support is in the process of trying to figure out what's wrong.

I'm making some decent money on my eBay auctions, but I've pretty much sold all the big items. All that's left are some knick-knacks. I have some anime plush dolls I could sell, but I don't have a box for them yet. I have a few in particular that could sell pretty well on their own. There's a few I'd like to keep, though.

I don't know why some Inuyasha stuff is selling for so much. A few years ago I auctioned off some unpackaged action figures that didn't go for much, but single, unpackaged figures are selling for between twenty and sixty dollars. I should get my Sesshoumaru figure out and display it again. I don't even care for Inuyasha anymore.

Speaking of figures, I have a Samurai Jack maquette statue I got many years ago. But it wasn't even out of the box for more than thirty seconds when I handed it to my sister, and she grabbed it by the head, breaking off Jack's topknot. I glued it back on, only to realize I'd glued it on backwards. Worse yet, I used epoxy glue. It's strong, but it seems to turn yellow over time. At least it's over the black painted area. I just looked at sold listings on eBay, and they are selling for a lot. Not getting rid of it, though.

Today I went in and spoke with my professor. I won't go into all the details, but it looks like there's a high chance I'll be starting graduate school this fall.

The program sounds great, and I might even be able to arrange to get credit for doing my summer job. There's one class in the program I already took during my undergrad, so I won't need to do that one, and I've already done a field school. Still, I'll need to do something in place of a field school (can't do anything in the summer because I'm working). The program is very much focused on giving people career knowledge and skills, rather than all theory.

I happened to run into another one of my old teachers who will be retiring soon. I swear, I embarrass myself in front of her every time I speak with her, it's terrible.

I noticed my more elderly teachers looked great, but the female teacher I mentioned above is using a walker again. The last time she used it, it was because she had had some surgery. Then she got better and started walking on her own again. Hmm.

Best part of all this is I may very well be able to pay for all of it myself. So I might be in the bunkhouse again this year at work so I can save more money.

Life's...moving kind of fast all of a sudden.
