Goodbye 2009

I have a horrible memory and it doesn't help that I don't update this blog as much as I should since I don't keep a journal. One of my new year's resolutions is to be better at documenting what happens and updating this thing.

I can't believe how fast this year flew by and that I'm down to my last 4 months of college. This next decade holds many changes for me, or at least I hope so. Marriage is definitely at the top. I just have to find the man now.

Here's to a better year!

Today was Nicole's,who is now affectionately known as Grandma Pants, birthday . She turned 22 and gave herself the new name. Don't mind that I've been 22 for 3 months, which by her standards, would make me a great grandma.

But anyway, finals are over and for some reason I still found myself quite busy today.

I started the day by waking up at 8 and going to work until 5. Then I came home and laid on the ground until Katie came to pick me up to go to a wedding reception, (which is a completely different story all on it's on).

After the wedding reception, we went straight to Red Robin to celebrate Nicole and Jason's birthdays. We then came back to our apartment and had a ton of people over. Our apartment has never known such love.

I still had to pack but I decided I would feel like too much of a loser if I just went back into my room with so many people over, so I sat and somewhat socialized.

It is now after midnight and I'm still packing. I started to pack but then realized I needed a bigger suitcase so I had to dig that out of our storage closet. I have to leave for the airport in 4:45 hours.

I may not be sleeping tonight.

Crap, I was also supposed to make pumpkin cookies.

I'm done with all my finals (as of 3 PM yesterday)!
It feels like the weekend, minus me being at work, and tonight I'm getting ready to go back home to Texas for 2 1/2 weeks!
65 degree weather?!! It's even getting ready to welcome me back! Dear sweet Texas, thank you for loving me and understanding me :)

I look forward to our reunion and our 55 degree Christmas together.

So proud of myself

I'm so proud of myself. I was on campus from 10am to 7pm today and managed to take 3 finals. Longest day of my life but I'm glad I got them out of the way.

Now moving onto tomorrow and my last 2 finals.

28 days

Have you ever seen the movie 28 Days? Sandra Bullock plays an alcoholic who goes to rehab. When someone gets released from the center they are told they are not allowed to be in a relationship until they've managed to keep a pet and a plant alive.

Now I'm not an addict of anything by any means (maybe except for junk food, call me a fatty) but I fear I may not be allowed to be in a relationship. You see, I haven't managed to keep both a pet and a plant alive.

No I haven't killed an animal. I'm taking care of Andrea's fish, Spike, and I'm able to keep him alive quite easily, granted it's a fish, but some people have a problem with even that.

My area of difficulty comes in plants. Every year I get a Poinsettia for Christmas to put in my office, and every year it dies far earlier than anyone else's.

It was so pretty and pink too. I've watered it. Hopefully it comes back to life!

Done deal

It's a done deal.
I applied for April graduation today. The girl looked at me and asked me if I realized that I need 120 credits to graduate. Yes this I know. 16 this semester, 18 next, and 3 in an independent study course which will be done in January and I will have just 120 credits.
Four years at BYU.
It went fast and I'm scared.

It's December

It's December, the 6th to be exact. I woke up this morning to my roommate yelling that it was snowing. Her's was a happy yell while mine was not. I let out a shrieking noooooooo.

I don't understand why people like snow. It creates a big mess. You track snow and salt in everywhere. It was all over our apartment and it also gets into your car. Then when it doesn't get plowed, which none of it was today, it gets caked down and freezes into ice overnight. That's not fun to walk in to school.

I keep telling myself that it's my last winter in Utah. I can do it for one more Winter. Come April I'm back in Texas and won't have to worry about scraping my car in the mornings or making sure I still have a face and all fingers after walking around outside.

For those of you that didn't know, I'm applying for graduation tomorrow. I've got one more semester with 18 credits while working 20 hours a week and being the Relief Society Secretary before I call it good.

I can do it, I can do it, I can do it........
