Mark It On Your Calendar

Hey Friends,

Mark it on your calendar, I was productive today! You're totally shocked I know. Your shock and excitement will be dimmed, however, when I tell you that one of the things that I did today may or may not have been due last Wednesday. I kind of, sort of, forgot about it until Thursday and when I looked at it it was a lot more complicated than I anticipated so I did what I do best and procrastinated about it (it was already late :P). And the world will go on. :P

I hope you are all doing well. I know I have been really bad about updating my blog. It's been a rough school year so far. Definitely first world problem status for most of it but it's still been tough. It doesn't help that my grandfather passed away at the end of August. I miss him a lot. I used to call him most nights and I will feel like I am forgetting something because I can't call him anymore. His death also caused me to think about my sister, Constance. Even though it's been 1 year 7 months since my sister passed away it still gets to me, especially around the 23 to 26 of each month. It's like my body has it's own internal clock that makes me down and I wonder why until I stop to think about it.

I spent most of September not feeling like myself. I feel more like myself now but there is always room for improvement. I really need to go back to focusing on the positive. My friend asked me why I didn't write anymore and I told her that I just have felt kind of blah so writing about it seemed silly. Maybe that's the problem though. Maybe I should write more often so that I can focus on the positive and maybe I'll stop feeling so blah. :P We can always hope :)

Since I prefer short blog post to both write and read I'll move to the good things of the last few days now.

1. I enjoyed driving home early in the morning Friday.
-I get up at 5:30 to leave by 6am. It's great. Not only do I avoid heavy traffic but I am not exhausted like I am on Thursday evenings. Plus since I get right up and going I don't feel I'm wasting my day away either.

2. Spending time with my siblings offspring.
-This weekend I got to spend time with both my baby niece and my baby nephew. They are getting so big and they are so fun. I much prefer them to anyone elses babies. :P

3. Got my grades for my half semester class.
-Not only is that class done, I reached my at least a B goal. ;)

4. Was productive today.
-An accomplishment in itself. ;)

Thanks for reading.



P.S. Michelle, I hope this blog post makes you smile. :)

Like A Rainbow

Hi Friends,

Hope everyone had a good weekend. Mine was pretty good. Not long enough but not too bad.

I have a story that I hope will give you a chuckle. :P

This weekend I was singing Miley Cyrus's new song. I was unaware of the title and just knew the chorus. At least I thought I knew the chorus.

I thought she said "I came out like a rainbow." Aaron quickly interrupted me and informed me that the lyrics are "I came out like a wrecking ball." I laughed so hard I choked on the water I was drinking. :P

Apparently I need my ears checked. :P

BTW, the title of the song is "Wrecking Ball".
Here are the good things from the last few days.

1. Doing better than expected on a paper.

2. Having a said better grade to balance out not so good grade I got on a quiz.
-It was an open book and I still didn't do that well. *Note to self: Peds is not for you* :P I don't care though. Our class mantra is "strive for the B" and I am happy to embrace it. :)

3.  Getting to spend time with my nieces and nephew.

Have a good one! Thanks for reading!

Shhhh. I Should Be Doing Homework.

Hi Friends, 

So I should be doing homework but surprise, surprise, that isn't happening. Don't worry, I am well aware of what a poor life decision I am making at the moment and know the consequences of my actions. :P So since I am doing what I do best and procrastinating, I might as well write in my blog that has been neglected for months now. 

It was a hectic summer and has been a hectic school year so I haven't posted but today is as good a time as any right? ;)

So before I run out of steam and neglect blogging for another month here are the good things about my day today so far:

1. Not having to get up for an 8am class. 
-I live on campus and still have a hard time. :P 

2. This conversation: 
Me: Hey, I had a dream I worked for the president.
Mom: That sounds more like a nightmare. 

3. I had to bribe my niece with M&Ms to get her to give me a hug and kiss. 
-This doesn't sound like a good thing but she is one of those children that prefers her independence and is not a big cuddler. She's been sick a lot lately and as a result really cuddly. The fact that I had to bribe her means she is feeling better. 

4. Reading to my niece. 
-Despite her not liking to cuddle, she does like to be read to. I enjoy reading to her. 

5. Finishing a good book. 
-In my procrastination today I finished one of my fun-read books. The story was sweet which always brightens my day a little. 

Thanks for reading. 

Have a great day and hope you are all productive at whatever you need to do. :)
