Day #37: Stroke speech video!

Enjoy! «Laura»

Day #36: Weekend, woo!

I'm looking forward to a nice lazy sleepy weekend. The only plan I have is to get a free cookie and hot chocolate at Barnes and Noble - they're offering an internet coupon. Yay for free warmness in a bookstore! Other than that, I'll just be reading. How boring! Heh. «Laura»

Day #35: The reading list

I took Ramit Sethi's book, "I Will Teach You To Be Rich" back to the library. It was good, but not good enough for me to write further on it. I spoke about the percentage styled budget and opening a Roth IRA, but that's all of the information I gleaned from it. I'm currently working through David Bach's workbook, "The Automatic Millionaire" and I have three other books that are on my pile, "A Random Walk Down Wall Street", "The Bogleheads' Guide to Investing" and "Vegan with a Vengeance". I'll start reading "A Random Walk Down Wall Street" right after I'm done reading the current issue of Wired magazine. «Laura»

Day #34: Speech! Speech!

I delivered a speech to doctors and business people today about my stroke and my care at UTMC. I'm hoping I can upload the video to show y'all. «Laura»

Day #33: Kentuckle photos

Whee! Photos from my Kentuckian adventure last weekend! Just a few pictures. Will get to editing the rest soon! «Laura»

Day #32: Hair today, gone tomorrow

Yep! I cut off my hair for locks of love. I donated 12 inches of my hair to a kid who has no hair! I'm glad I own a scarf. «Laura»

Day #31: The DO SOMETHING you LAZY PERSON day!

Yesterday: I introduced myself to a photographer who specializes in photography for live concerts, which would be a dream position besides, of course, writing the music for the live concert. I wrote a few songs (yeah, I really did!) I ate way too much food...uuughh... I know today is going to be a crazy "Let's sit in the car for five hours straight from northern Kentucky to northern Ohio" day. Thanks for the great weekend Niki and Lexington! I'm all packed for the drive home... «Laura»
