Well, sort of. They are still holding classes for those who either failed classes this last semester and need to bring up our grade point average in order to maintain scholarships or college requirements OR also for those of us who would like to get ahead. As for me, I'm taking a little time to myself to do what I want to do the way I want to do it. I was going to take classes and then I asked myself, "Why would I pay nearly a grand for two classes when I could pay a grand next semester for… Continue

Koi fish and waterfalls - not the first two things that come to mind when you think about Albuquerque. Under sweepingly pruned cottonwoods at the relatively new Sasebo Japanese Garden at the Aquarium/Botanic Gardens portion of our Biopark
, you'll find both. The garden is named for our sister city in Japan and was designed by Toru Tanaka - whose guiding hand helped steered the famed… Continue

Over the last couple of years Albuquerque has developed into a haven for creative studio/gallery ventures. Artist's seem to survive the brittle line between famine and feast by banning together and sharing space and energy. Whether it's a collective art studio, visual venue or co-op gallery, underground sound gallery, or just space it's bound to house some of New Mexico's most exceptional and motivated artists. We have Out' ChOnda, Broadway Studio,… Continue

Ok, so the internet is not good for conveying that awsome noise that often follows the introduction of a famous person into a crowd of obnoxious people but I gave it my best shot.
Can't wait to be digging into some haggis this weekend! lol probably not but I'll pobably be getting me some good ol' fashioned Irish Stew if there is a GOD. I'm the only one in my house that likes layers of onions and potatoes sandwiching cabbage and carrots (no meat, that would… Continue

I have an interview with Diane Hinte on 20May08 at 1000 at the Jewish Family Services (located on the top floor of the Jewish Community Center) to go over the details of a food pantry distribution assistant. http://jfsabq.org/get_involved/volunteer.html I will be in charge of stocking, packaging, and distributing food packages four hours every Thursday to help families in need.

I'm always changing my mind about what counts as "my favorite bike ride in Albuquerque," but I always return to the Junkyard Loop. Down in Albuquerque's South Valley, it takes you past the city's sewage treatment plant, a bit of infrastructure not to be missed if only for its pedestrian grandeur. It gives you a sense of the scale of our poop, a fact… Continue

From June 1st to June 12th I will have my second house sitting job. This is a person I have known for a couple years now and we both mourned the loss of Pumpkin, the big cat with lots of love! Unfortunately, Pumpkin passed away in December a couple weeks before Christmas and she will be dearly missed. She is survived by a UNM professor and an APS Social Worker who have since then adopted their daughter's and sister's cats. They have a beautiful place up in the mountains off of Tramway and have… Continue

Alright! With summer here so is my primary source of summer income! Beginning May 26th and continuing through June 1st I will be House Sitting out in Los Lunas. I get to take care of four wonderful dogs, two cats, and two horses! This is a great place for me to be because it is like a vacation from my family and time to think about what I'm going to do. It also gives me the chance to catch up on some reading and to get some scholarship writing done!

I moved to Albuquerque over seven months ago. My first week living here happened to be the week of Balloon Fiesta
. I was in awe. I had never seen anything like the Burque, nor felt anything like that feeling of awe and vastness that came over me my first morning of sunrise and balloons as far as the eye could see. One of my coworkers told me one day that Albuquerque was one of the top ten photographed… Continue
