Let's Do This.
Semester two is over and I'm officially enrolled into the Childcare Program. In two years I will not only be certified, I will graduate with an Associate's Degree. And as of right now I have a GPA of 3.5.. I plan to have an average of at least 3.7 by the time this is over, or higher. I can't wait.. this is something I truly want, and I feel so happy just thinking about it. I will do this, I will succeed, and it's going to be amazing.
And This Chick Broke 140!
I seriously thought I was never going to get out of the 140 weight range. Thankfully I was very wrong and I am now a happy 137. Seven more pounds and I hit my next weight goal and then after that, only fifteen more pounds to go! Ah! And I've discovered I actually do have hip bones :D
So I Wanna Say Thank You.
"Cause it Makes me that much stronger Makes me work a little bit harder Makes me that much wiser So thanks for making me a fighter Made me learn a little bit faster Made my skin a little bit thicker Makes me that much smarter So thanks for making me a fighter" I almost gave up. I let old demons take over and I seriously thought I was going to forfeit everything I fought for these past ten years. I let people get under my skin and start to tear down the walls I worked so hard to build up. I ...
Ignorance is Your Tragedy, Not Mine.
Would you let your five year old son wear a dress to school? Lately on my Facebook I've noticed a ton of posts about gender equality amongst children. I'm all for that, I'm all for equality period. If a boy wants to play with a barbie, go for it. If a girl wants to roll around in the mud with the boys, go for it. I was a tomboy growing up, and I would go shirtless outside with my cousins all the time. My mom didn't like it to much but let me do it.. at home only though. Would she let me ...
It's Been Awhile.
I haven't posted on here much in the last few weeks. Between home life and school, it's been hell. Presentations, tests, pulling my math grade up to a B, dieting, heart break.. Thank God it's Spring Break.
I Don't Want To Do This.
This Monday is going to be hell, and I'm really scared. I don't like being in front of people. Public speaking is a huge fear of mine, and this Monday I have a presentation to give in my English class. It would be easier if my teacher didn't have unreal expectations. It has to be 3-7 minutes long.. if the clock stops at 2:59 or 7:01 then we lose points. If we show obvious nervousness or stutter, we lose points. If we don't make constant eye contact or enthusiasm with our hands, we lose poi...
Life After Fifty Shades.
My amazing, awesome, most fabulous husband in the whole world surprised me with these this morning. Oh my God, I love that man! I can't wait to jump into these..
It's A Possibility.
So, I received the grade on my visual assignment. 40. My teacher graded me with a 40. My first F in two semesters. I truly believe the woman is out to get me. Paranoid and crazy? Maybe. When I was out for those two days, I wrote her five times asking about the assignment. Each time her instructions where the same, "Read the syllabus". The syllabus gave us the page number and the due date.. the instructions in the book were extremely simple. Make a pie chart graphing the populations of th...
The Best Thing I've Ever Heard In My Life.
"Ladies and gentlemen of the class of '99 Wear sunscreen If I could offer you only one tip for the future, sunscreen would be it The long-term benefits of sunscreen have been proved by scientists Whereas the rest of my advice has no basis or reliable Than my own meandering experience, I will dispense this advice now Enjoy the power and beauty of your youth, oh, never mind You will not understand the power and beauty of your youth Until they've faded but trust me, in 20 years, you'll look ba...
Oh Woe is Me.
That moment when you wake up and you really want to watch an old Saturday morning favorite on Youtube.. just to discover it's not there, or posted anywhere online.
Fifty Shades of Heaven.
Oh my, Mr. Grey.. I nearly died when I found this shirt today. The squeal that erupted from my lungs was to the fangirl extreme, and my husband was not that pleased but got it for me anyways. God I love that man. Annnnd we found The Fables of Aesop illustrated in color, and in mint condition! Ah! Today was a good day :)
