Happy 1 Year Anniversary to “Shenanigans of A Hoodlum”!

Published January 31, 2015 by konchk

The wordpress machine told me on my little notification side bar that exactly one year ago…I ventured on this blog journey. This last year had its extreme highs and its extreme lows. I’d like to say more highs than lows, but it’s actually fairly balanced. Since last year my world has been up and down, post or no post…my life has been hectic but full of fun as well.

Since one year ago and maybe a little before, I have…

Started this lovely blog.

Finally kept my promise.

Sang in the rain. Kissed in the rain.

Shared a kiss under a full moon.

Formed the constellation of a pretty-ful night sky on my ceiling.

Looked through a telescope.

And witnessed a most beautiful lunar eclipse.

Went to a bachelorette party for a spontaneous wedding.

Did something completely spontaneous normal Hannah would never dream of doing.

Got a pet rock (which turned out to be an owl)

And named him Paparkahar.

Shot a gun and missed a poop ton

I finally hit a can ever-so-slightly.

Baked a sweet, pink layer cake

And a loaf of bread…but should have waiting to bake.

Ate some caviar my dear friend bought for me.

Gave out an “I find you attractive” business card

To three cute waiters at the Olive Garden

Then left a 100 percent tip.

Sent a care package to my favorite person in the whole world.

Finally scared my roommate.

Drew a model nude.

Learned to dance.

Wrote a letter to me to read decades later.

Rode in a cop car on the way to the bus station.

Spaced out through all my classes.

Because I met a boy.

Shared the most meaningful conversations with my best friends.

And forgot them all.

Left for Rapid City.

Skipped a semester from school.

And made lots of moneys.

Making coffee in a bookstore.

And sitting in Cherry Berry.

Spent time with my sisters, grams, and niece.

And other people, I guess.

Saw a shooting star on a walk at night.

And made a wish that I can’t remember.

Went kayaking with my pretty sister.

Fell into the water.

Took a picture in a photo booth with my smart, wittle, adorably-entitled nephew.

Left because I missed a boy a lot.

And goofed off with him for weeks.

Ate lots of sushi and dressed up.

Ate some frog legs.

4-wheeling!

Finally made it back to College Town.

Finally decided I wanted to be in school.

Finally got another job.

Bought a lottery ticket for the heck of it.

Didn’t win, by the way.

Still pursuing my passions..

Still memorizing those 100 digits of pi.

Still reading Crime And Punishment

Still learning to swim and drive?

Still in school.

Still blogging. And arting. And doing stuff.

Here is to another year.

Spectacular

Published April 15, 2014 by konchk

Yes. This is my eye. No. It does not have any relevance to this post.
What is relevant is that I had a spectacular night.

Yes. This is my eye.

Yes. This is my eye.

I mean…the moon is pretty spectacular in itself. Even without an eclipse over it. Even when it is not a beautiful rusty color. And even when I’m not getting my share of kisses under it.

I’ve been waiting flipping forever to get this crapola off my list.
# 42: Share a kiss under a full moon.
# 191: See a lunar eclipse.
Both made the spectacular moon even seem more spectacular to me.

To-Do Lists

Published April 14, 2014 by konchk

Don’t ask me why I do this, but every to-do list I ever ever ever ever make contains mostly things that are…fun? It makes me feel good about myself. I like the feeling I get when I can cross something off, even if it isn’t quite necessary for me to do. And why? I told you not to ask me, but (to me anyways) the fun, unnecessary crapola is actually about as necessary as the necessary crapola. It might be because I get cranky if I work and work and work and have no room for play. And then, do you know what happens to all that work I do?…It isn’t as good, because I am so darn exhausted.
One day Hannah woke up and realized that there wasn’t a point to working working working working working and the work turning to poo because all that work made her grumpy and bored and tired. My rationalization of writing out all the pointless, unnecessary fun stuffs on my list is that it gets me ready for the real deal–the crapola that actually does need to get done.
I’ll let you in a little secret….
It flipping works.

Hannah’s To-Do List
Clean room…not entirely important, but I can’t get anything done if it’s not
Do laundry…running out of clothes? Important.
Do dishes…Therapeutic
Shower
Cross-stitching a prettiful picture of a tiger…on my bucket list. Gotta do it.
Work on research paper…NECESSARY, and hopefully I will feel relaxed by then
Go tanning…extremely bad for me, I know, but I want to look all golden for the summer
Paint…Just really want to.
Make bracelets
Blog
Watch some Flix of the Net!
Study
Sketch out ideas for art project
Yoga
Mentally prepare for the LUNAR ECLIPSE….

I’m Back!!!

Thorough planning for my ceiling

Thorough planning for my ceiling

As per usual, I was able to cross off an item off that wonderful bucket list of mine in the knick of time (That’s how you spell “knick”, right?). I finally had the stamina/courage/resources/motivation/what-have-you to finish sticking those darn stars on my ceiling! With the help of my good friends Sully and Hobby Lobby. Wish me lots of luck on my next escapade!
