I'm starting a new thing here on the ol' blog where I recap the highs and lows of the week every friday.
I love being able to look back at particular moments in my life because life happens so fast. I also wanted to post about more than just my weekend, (like I've done before) so I decided I will recap the entire week!
I know it sounds like it's more for me than you
but I mean.... It is my blog after all! ;)
(in case you're wondering, I got the idea to do this here, )
(my eldest brother and I)
1. This past monday was my sweet sister-in-laws birthday! We celebrated by eating one of her favorite meals, fresh caught salmon and halibut. It was divine. We finished the evening off with Sprinkles cupcakes (yum) and a major discussion about the VMAs. It was nice.
Happy 22nd Birthday Holly!
You know that time in everyone's life where you run out of gas on the highway and pull over asap and end up at Waffle House?
Oh you don't?
Well that happened.
Yeah. My wonderful, beautiful mother had a rental car (long story) didn't realize that not every car reminds you with a loud noise when you're running low on fuel.
*palm hits forehead*
Like I've said, I started school this week.
I'm taking 16 hours (5 classes) plus a lab for my biology course and observation hours for student teaching.
I have to admit, I'm a little overwhelmed.
but I know I am a good student and I will make it through successfully!
So far I'm loving my creative writing class and my growth and development class.
In writing, we get to actually send our final 'papers' in to a publisher! How cool is that?!?!
Right now I'm thinking I will finish up my story and submit that.
I'll keep you posted.
and as far as the G&D class, I get to have my own virtual child. Yep. I get to raise my very own child from conception to 20+ yrs and get graded on it.
and if I screw up royally and totally ruin this poor computer child's virtual life, I fail.
I'm pretty scared about that.
(I should mention I kill every plant I try to keep)
Oh. My. Goodness.
This book. You guys, for real.
It is so good! Just when you think you have it figured out, you're wrong. waayyyyy wrong. and just when you think you start tp figure it out again, you're wrong once again!
It is brilliant and I couldn't put it down.
I'd recommend it to someone who doesn't mind cursing, blood & guts and looking into the brain of a psychopath.
Have a good weekend guys !
(minus the psychopaths)
