Today has made me one thankful girl...

Ok, this will sould pretty nerdy... But I really do love school. I mean granted I have lost pretty much all of the social life I had due to homework and work, BUT I really do love all my classes so far. These first couple weeks have been slightly stressful because you have to figure out what it is that each teacher wants from you in the assignments given, but man am I learning. I love learning. Even learning about learning makes my lil heart happy :)
I was having a hard time at first being at a larger school than the first one I attended mainly because of the lack of communication- but today I discovered something that pretty much made up for EVERYTHING (at least in my mind right now ;)
My school links up with an online tutoring service that is- get this- FREE. School has had me slightly stressed  because of the draining of my wallent factor but man today this was a God-sent gift! Man, physics can make my brain hurt but this defininately helped me so much. Thank you MSUB. Seriously I am a little bit more ok with you taking my money now :)

Off to do some more homework (imagine that!) but I have gotten most of it done.
Hope your Sunday is treating ya right!

Soakin it up Sunday

I bought books today. Bleh. Why on earth do college course books cost so much? And why on earth do professors make you buy them and then hardly ever assign anything out of em? I hope they are all helpful- and worth the small fortune I spent on them! I'll finish buying them tomorrow :(

I just finished watching the Broncos beat the Steelers, man amazing. Tebow, you do have my respect sir- I may not be a Denver fan but he deserves every win he gets!

I also got to see a little guy that has stolen my heart, my aunt & uncle got a puppy yesterday and I'm in love. He is such a sweetie.

Today has been spent getting on track. I started "Insanity" today and will be doing this in the mornings before I leave for school- which begins in 3 days... Holy Moses. Along with the program comes an eating plan.
The goal is to eat 5 meals a day, each containing about 300 calories. I am keeping it pretty simple with this and being sure to write everything I eat down. It'll be something that keeps me focused and make sure I complete the full 60 day program. I am so looking forward to tomorrow's workout. They will be intense but I love me a good exhausting workout! So much fun.

Tomorrow I order the bridesmaid dress I will be wearing for one of my best friend's wedding. I am so excited! May will be here so soon!

I'm about to finish Ragamuffin Gospel and start my next book. I love reading and it feels like it had been so long since I've just been able to sit down and enjoy reading and soaking in words!

Well I'm off to read and then get ready for the week :)

new year new list

a lot of people set out and make rediculous new years resolutions, I choose to make new year reading lists
two years ago I set out with the goal to read a book a week. I didn't do it, but I did well for a little while...
I would like to try this again, I'm not sure how this will pan out with starting school again but I am going to give it a shot. I've decided that I'm not allowing myself to buy anymore books until I've made it through some of the ones I already have. I'm going to alternate between religion/spiritual studying books and pretty much sports books... I also want to dive into my photography books more too...



In one week I will be starting classes again. holy moses.
it leaves me speechless. I'm so anxious to get started.

I am so thankful for a new year. I was pretty over 2011. by like last february...
