Do you wanna tangle or do you wanna go it alone?

It's been a while! I can't believe I have 1 week left of my math class and then I can apply to the nursing program! That's so crazy! I'll be taking my final in CHM this week also and I really have and want to do well but once my other classes started I sort of put it on the back burner so I really have to catch up this week. I'm doing a pretty crappy job with it though! Gotta get back into the groove. Perhaps I'm still in my Vegas mindset.;)

Speaking of Vegas... I feel old! HA. It was fun but I feel like I don't really want to let my guard down there. It's just so sketchy sometimes and cheesy of course. It was fun but I feel like I owe Katy a crazy evening. We will be going to Flagstaff next weekend so I'll see what I can do. I'm so excited! After that, my adventures are pretty much over:( As for Blink and MCS it was AWESOME. I can't believe I was such a trooper on the floor. We were like 5 rows back and it was crazy. I was dripping with sweat, though. Groooooosssss! We even got upgraded to a suite. It was awesome. I felt like a rock star! 

Anyhoo. I think it's about time to get a job. Everyone will be going back to school soon and all this free time is making my mind crazy. We ventured through a huge step and I feel like my mind went backwards and freaked out kind of. Weird. 

Well I'm going to try and clean up a little, study, then hopefully work out. Mom is coming over tomorrow for her birthday and I'm cooking dinner. Hope it's good!

  • Don't say no to veggies!
  • Find or don't let go of your passions
  • Find new passions
  • Never stop learning
  • Stretch 
  • Meditate
  • Read
  • Converse 
  • Sing and dance every day
  • Have pets
  • Walk
  • Watch the sunset
  • See something new in an ordinary, repetitive drive
  • Treat the Earth well; it's very easy
  • Keep in touch
  • Send notes in the mail

I'm drinking the best green monster right now! I added some strawberries and yummmm!

Anyway, just hanging out a little before I go to meet Katy for lunch and shopping (again). I'm into the second week of my math class and have 2 weeks left of chemistry! This math class is pretty easy but sometimes I feel like I'm in my trig class from high school. My teacher would stop and go, "Wait, okay, um...oh sorry," and erase the board. Ugh. I can do that too until I get the right answer! I even felt like I was in high school more today because a table was laughing and my teacher was getting annoyed and she's like, "What's so funny?" It was embarrassing. Another reason why I really enjoy Gateway over any other MCC I've been to (which is like 2). At least it's only 4 weeks! 

Time is winding down for J's summer...When I leave for Vegas he has to go to pre-service already:( I guess it's not much different since he's teaching summer school but still during the school year it's more intense and a lot more work is brought home. Perfect time for me to get a job! Any thoughts? I want something mindless yet at the same time exciting and challenging. Does that exist? 

Anyway, better do some work before I have to leave. I'm hoping to go camping this weekend. I'm not exactly a camping veteran so I need some assistance. Maybe Katy will have some ideas.
