Judas Unchained

Judas Unchained by Peter F. Hamilton
Narrated by John Lee
I wrote earlier that I had listened to Pandora's Star (the first in this series) and I LOVED it. Well this one was no different, it was just as good, if not better. 
I swear, I now dream in this universe, that's how awesome it is. I am so in love with Ozzy Isaac, his character is just awesome. :)
I'm gonna do some Commonwealth art... Yeah, I should do that.
I'm not gonna talk about much else that happens cause I don't want to give anything away, but this series is definitely worth listening to.
I will say however, that I am extremely impressed by how Hamilton weaves together everything he writes about. He handles a LOT of characters, places, and events, and doesn't even stumble.

Monotony of the desert

I wish my life were more interesting right now. I'm currently supposed to be studying for the GRE that I'm taking on Wednesday (the 14th). Then I have to sign up for the biology GRE (oh joy) and also contact more professors about applying, and then actually start applying! Most of my deadlines are around December/January, so this will be a busy semester trying to do that and study and do research and spend time with my hubby and dogs and I just can't even think about art right now. Which makes me sad, as I really do miss art, especially feeling as if I'm forgetting my art skills the longer I go without using them! ;_; I ventured over to deviant art recently and it made my hands itch just wanting to draw and paint!
I do have some exciting news-- my dad got me a new laptop (my wedding present) which is awesome because my old one is dying. I just have to adjust to Windows 8 now.
I'm dying to get out of the house and do something-- anything! So maybe I'll have pictures or something to share soon, if I do manage to convince Doom to do something with me.
We are both quite busy, however, he's trying to apply for a new job because his current one sucks. Aaaah, life. We're also going back and forth on the pros and cons of moving for grad school; I really reeeeeallly want to leave and just get out of here, sometimes the monotony of the desert drives me insane. He's just overly cautious and thinks we need to stay here. -_-' I guess we'll see in a year what happens, hahahaha.

Mrs. Doom

Yes, I got married. And it was fun. I had a hair disaster that day, and I smiled too much just so I wouldn't cry, but it was a good time. I'm glad my dearest friend dogert could make it out, she drove 19 hours to get to me! Its only sad that she couldn't stay longer.
Getting married is a very exhausting and crazy event, I hope I only have to do it once! ;) And yes, I'm oh-so-glad I married my best friend ever, Doom.
I also finished my summer research poster recently, which was another stressful event that turned out good! It just proves to me that science is hard but totally worth it.
I'm still gonna be busy for awhile because I'm taking my GRE soon, so until I get back into the groove of blogging, here's some more pics:

My mother and aunts did an amazing job decorating. :) The bouquets are handmade!

My cake with the birds I handmade and painted. :)
