Greetings from the end of the semester!

I survived!! I finished my last final today! That means I can officially celebrate getting a bachelor’s degree!! Well I guess I’m going to celebrate by cleaning some more and packing up our apartment. Woot…

My Islam final was Monday. It was an essay test but I think it went pretty well. I’m expecting a B in that class. (wish it were higher but I’ve consistently gotten B’s on all of his tests. Oh well).

I took my Marriage and Families final on Tuesday. It was online and pretty easy considering I’ve actually had to read the book for the quizzes. I got a 90 on that one. I’m pretty sure I’m getting an A in that class. According to my gradebook it’s a 91 right now. I think that will be my final grade. WOOT

On Wednesday I took my College Algebra final. I was really nervous about it because I wasn’t doing that well on the practice sets. But I figured out using the crazy grading formula that I only had to make a 65 on the final to get a B in the class. So then I was a little more relaxed. I managed an 80 on the final which makes my grade a B! I’m so proud. I hate math classes and I’m so glad to be passing this one!

Then today I took my Multicultural Film final online. It was really annoying and always asks really obscure questions. So I wasn’t really expecting a very good grade on it.. but I managed a 92 somehow! So I’m pretty sure I’ve got a 94 in that class!
All in all I’m expecting 3 A’s and 2 B’s. not too shabby. I would love more A’s.. but oh well.

And now I’m DONE! So I’m going to bask in the glory and clean some more.. or shave my legs so we can go take cap and gown pictures later today.
I get a break of 13 days before my online class for the summer starts. So annoying.. but it must be done if I want to get all of my pre-reqs for nursing out of the way. Ah well..

Until next time!

Some really old pictures of me from May of '09 that I found on Kay's computer.

a red velvet from earlier in the week! Celebrating finishing my first final.

I just found a roll of film recently. I thought it was from last year so I took it to get it developed. Turns out it was from 2007. Hahah, oops. It's photos of my nephew when he was little! A nice surprise.

I survived last week! I turned in all 5 papers and both projects. We presented our dance group project and I think it went really well. My teacher gave us feedback and she seemed to really like ours :)

Other than that I’ve got to study for four finals this week

Monday – Islam in the Modern World
Tuesday – Marriage and Family (online)
Wednesday – College Algebra (EEK!)
Thursday – Multicultural Film (online)

Nicely spaced out.. but still freaking me out. My Islam final is a blue book exam, so all essay question. Not my favorite. Marriage and family won’t be too bad. College algebra freaks me out a whole lot.. I’ve got a lot of studying to do for that. and film is.. sorta scary. We’ll see

And my carpal tunnel is acting up.. so I really shouldn’t even be typing this.. but oh well.

Other than that we’ve got to clean and pack up the apartment on Friday. WOOHOO. No more loud parties or mold smells. How lovely

Then, next week I’m getting my wisdom teeth out on Wednesday. BLAH. I’m not excited. I don’t think it will be too bad but I still don’t want to do it. I just want to lay around in the sun forever! Haha. Then two weeks from Wednesday we’re going to Orlando!! I’m beyond excited. You have no idea. This trip is what is helping me make it through this week.

Anyway, I better go study for these darn finals!

The Little Things

I’m going to try to appreciate the little things in life. Like red painted toe nails and my sweet puppies. I’m going to try to ignore the next two weeks and the insanity that will come with them. I’ve got 3 out of 5 papers written for this week, so that’s a plus. But I’ve also got to present our group dance project on Thursday which I’m slightly freaking out about.

I’m so looking forward to May. Unfortunately I have to get my wisdom teeth out pretty much right away. But hopefully it won’t be too bad and I’ll be feeling better quickly. Then the next week Kay and I are taking a little road trip to universal studios which I am beyond excited for. The idea of lying by the pool and drinking with a little theme park action thrown in sounds so heavenly right now. I just have to get through the next two weeks of school and I get my reward! Haha.

Other than that I’ve got a few things on the list to do before we move, like finally going to vortex spring in defuniak. Because I’ve wanted to do it for years and I refuse to leave the state without accomplishing it. I’m also going to hopefully go to the farmers market with my mom some weekend. And I’m sure there will be other things. I’d like to see some movies. I feel like it’s been forever since I went to the movies.

I’m going to read as much as humanly possible. Because that’s what I miss most when I’m in school, the fact that I never have any time to read books for pleasure. I’m going to work on studying my butt off in my summer classes because I basically have to have A’s in them. and all my pre-nursing classes in the fall and spring. Talk about pressure. But I’m ready. I’m just going to have devote all of my time to studying.

I’m so looking forward to being around my family again, my sisters, nephews and a niece on the way. I’m sure I’ll spend a lot of time this summer shopping for baby clothes! My favorite pastime anyway. Other than that I’m going to try to soak up as much sun as possible and enjoy the little things in life.

April's Here!

First day of April!! And you know what that means.. My birthday is in 10 days! I can't believe I'm going to be 21. Woohoo!

Other than that I've got a ton of schoolwork to do. But I'm procrastinating like normal. I have so many papers to write.. and I don't want to think about it. Bleh. Plus a math test this week.

But I'm amusing myself by watching old lifetime movies. Right now its Mom at 16. hahah. I don't know why I can watch these multiple times.

I really want some seafood.. Mmmmm. It's so lovely outside. I really should be laying out in the backyard, trying to get some sun. But I'm just too lazy to get up and change. hahah.

Oh well.. I'm off to be boring.
