*Note: The quest for scholarship has taken an irking turn (last week was the deadline for a scholarship I qualify for), which is the reason there's a huge gap in my posts. :( However, I will be catching up now that we are on Spring Break. :)

Forms Overload

Sorry about the late post, but I have been suffocating under a wave of school-related forms lately. The obstacles toward the golden scholarship have proven both irksome and tiresome. The dreadful forms are multiplying like rabbits: you start of with two of them, then two becomes four, and etc. I will no longer let the pixie scholarship tease and taunt me; capturing him is my number one concern for now. And so, my followers I leave you this fine evening a student on a mission.

Wish me luck! :)

Education Graduation

Two more months, just two more months until graduation! I feel like the Maid Maleen, counting down the days until my freedom! Today, I have received not one, but two letters of acceptance: one from Clemson University and the other from Claflin University! Now, all I have to do is endure the odyssey that is the rest of my senior year, click my ruby slippers three times, and chant "There's nothing like graduation, there's nothing like graduation."

Have a great day. :)

Of Dogs and Dragons

Because Sirius is the name of both the dog star and my main character (see blog title), today's "D" post will be dedicated to man's best friend. Enjoy.

Isn't he the cutest?  You could say my blog is going to the dogs today. ;)

Curse of the Cough

Lately, Mama Nature has not been able to make up her mind. She keeps flip-flopping the temperatures from sizzling (to the point where you could cook an omelet on the sidewalk) to frigid (to the point where my runny nose freezes in its tracks). The results of her fickleness is my continuous coughing, which has been going on for about two weeks now. Thankfully, the doctor prescribes some antibiotics to lift the cures of my dripping nose and scratchy throat. And that I am slowly recovering, I can now continue my search for the delicate butterfly that is scholarship.
Have a great week everyone! :)

This one for the Bears

Bears. Where would folklore and popular culture be without them? Goldielocks and the Three Bears has a better ring to it than Goldielocks and the Three Puppies. Many children loved watching Winnie the Pooh and playing with their teddy bears. Older children and young adults enjoy reading modern retellings of the legends East of Sun, West of Moon  and   Snow White and Red Rose.  I have to admit that I use to love to collect teddy bears (although I would not want to meet a real bear in the forest).  And speaking of wild creatures, I must wish  you farewell now. The Homework-Beast has me in his sights and it looks like he's ready to "bear wrestle."

Happy Saturday everyone!

Awesome Artwork

Not many too people know this, but my mom is a HUGE art fan. I'm serious, there's not a room in our house that doesn't have a painting, wood carving, or sculpture in it. However, when you live in a town as small as Orangeburg, words travel fast. It wasn't long until someone at the Times and Democrat got wind of Mom's collection and wanted to do a story on it:

Here are some pictures from the article.

And speaking of a thing of beauty, Miss Coppel was kind enough to award me the Magical Blogger Award.
Isn't that a pretty picture?
Happy Weekend everyone! :)
