Archive for Fun


I just spent the last hour at work choosing a new layout for my blog.  Honestly, I’m going to miss this job.  Since it’s a work/study program, I can only work this semester.  Since I’m graduating, that means I only have this week and next week.  And since the government pays me (it’s sort of like a scholarship), I can only work until that money runs out.  What does that mean??  Basically, I can work 20 hours this week, and 9.25 next week. 


Sad, but true.  After I’m done here I have no idea what I am going to do, besides look for a job and get married.  Speaking of which…I’m going to plan hard core starting tomorrow (seriously….tomorrow).  I just took my last exam this morning, and so I’m going to go home and take a nap, then play with my doggie, maybe some time Brent, then bed!!! 


Sunday is graduation…..which is the last step to end this part of my life.  Monday I have 3 HUGE things to write about…they are amazing!

It’s been too long…

So what’s been happening with me??????  Life.


I survived my last week of class, complete with turning in three portfolio’s of my entire semester’s work, a paper, and an anthology which I co-edited for a poetry class.  It was hectic, and I’m so glad it’s over.  Now, all that’s left is exam week (dun…dun…dun…).  But honestly, I only have one exam this week, so I can’t complain.  It’s on Wednesday and then after that I’m done!!!! 
On Sunday I will be a college graduate.  I’m so excited!!  Then after that,  I am all wedding.  Which means that I need to get crackin’ on last minute stuff.   Flowers, decorations, music, etc.  There’s a huge list. 


So until I’m done with school, I’ll be neglecting writing on here…wish me luck!  🙂

Fun Weekend

I’m excited about this weekend.  I get to see Hilary who is here from Colombus.  I get to spend all day tomorrow with my mommy.  We’re going up to Ann Arbor, MI to go to the Scrap Box (coolest place ever) and then to the Macaroni Grill (Second coolest place ever).  Yay for a fun weekend!  I post pictures of the fun on Monday.

Spring is in the air!

I got received (seriously, I hate the word “got”) flowers from my boss yesterday for spring, and for a cancer awareness day they had.  They are so beautiful.  They started up yesterday all closed up.



Then when I came into work today, they were open!  It seriously made my day!  They are gorgeous. 



It makes me so happy because at home I have some amazing flowers from Brent (from our anniversary).



Flowers, flowers everywhere!  This has given me such a boost today.  Waking up to flowers, then coming in to work and seeing them!  Happiness!  Yay!


Oh, and it is such a beautiful day, too.  I think I might skip my afternoon class and go for a walk.  I know, it’s a terrible waste of money to skip class, but honestly, I’d rather be outside.

Spring Break Isn’t Coming Fast Enough

I think that I should have given up complaining for lent, but then, what would I write about?  I’m getting so behind in school work simply because I just don’t care.  Terrible attitude, I know.  But seriously, as long as I graduate, I really don’t care about my grades.  I could get C’s in all my classes and still be above a 3.0.  So what’s to stress about?  WELL…I am stressing.  I feel like as soon as I get ahead in one class, I get behind in another, like I can’t catch up.  Quizzes, oral exams, poems, papers, short stories, online quizzes, yada yada ya.  I feel like I’m buried in papers and can only come out to breath when it’s time to eat. 


This morning, I walked three miles at the gym.  I didn’t read the latest gossip in Us, or People.  Instead, I read 75 pages of text for a class.  It was actually nice.  I didn’t notice how much I had walked, and I got school work done.  So, I burned over 300 calories reading :).


I also need to organize my notebook.  That is my big plan for tonight (after class, of course).  This way, I know what is in there, what I need to find and what I need to throw away.  Organization is important to me, so I need to get organized to make it through this week.


Next week is Spring Break, and I am purposely not going ANYWHERE.  I’ve never gone on a trip during Spring Break, and it didn’t seen necessary this semester either.  I mean, I can save money, not get plastered, therefore remember my break, get wedding planning done, and laundry, and hang out with friends.  I hope that it will be a relaxing time, and that I will get a lot done (and I’m not looking at school work one bit).




On another note, I went to the library last night.  I had to return a book, and I checked a few out as well.  February was missions month at church and I taught “facts” about Africa to the kids.  I decided that I want to learn more about Africa.  I took a course called “The Introduction to the African Experience” but I honestly didn’t get much out of it (that I can remember).  But teaching these kids really got me interested.  So, I’m starting with Angola.  I got two books out last night on Angola, and I’ll let you know soon how it goes.  Then, I will continue through the countries. 


Also at the library, I checked out a movie called “Super Size Me”.  Oh my goodness!  Brent and I watched it together last night, and then this morning my mom and I watched it again.  If you haven’t seen it, I advise you to see it.  It really opens your eyes to the disgustingness of fast food.  Parts of it are gross (he throws up, they show a gastric bypass surgery, etc).

In an odd mood…

I think it’s the weather…and the fact that I am sipping on a Starbucks skinny iced vanilla latte.  I’m excited…about what?  I don’t really know.  I just finished reading “The Apology” by Stephen Dixon and “The Ceiling” by Kevin Brockmeier.  Both very good stories.  I had to read them for class, however I’m really into these short stories.  I like reading them and get lots of ideas for personal stories as well.  Right now I’m working on a story based off my grandfathers life…but not exact.


This morning, after my personal training (still think my trainer is ca-razy, but she’s awesome, and I love her), I went home and my mommy saved all the coupons for me and so I clipped coupons.  I think everyone should do this.  If you get the paper, you should save them (and use them, Barb) :).  If you don’t get the paper, find a friend that does, or a grandparent or parent and steal there’s (okay, get their permission).  Anywho, I am a coupon FREAK.  I love saving money, and I save on average about $4 a shopping trip.  One time I saved $9!  It’s worth it.  All you have to do is cut them out.  I also have coupons for restaurants, dry cleaners, Bigby, etc.  Seriously, coupons are awesome.

Where was I going with that?…..Oh!  So there was this “Huggies” coupon, and at the top it had this picture, and I think I laughed for about five minutes…




How could you not laugh.  I think it’s hilarious.  Well I’ll stop being wired on caffeine and life, and stop writing.  Nothing new with wedding planning…though after this weekend I’ll fill you in on what else has been done.

“Aaaas Yoooooou Wiiiiiissssshhhh”

Okay, you have ten seconds to name the movie…..


Did you get it?


Good job!


So I totally feel like the Bride in “The Princess Bride” (not completley, like I don’t sing and have birds fly to me, and I don’t have a maid that follows me around to make sure I don’t kiss Brent, OH, and my name isn’t Buttercup).  Okay, I’m not trying to be all cutesy,  corny, or annoying.  But I’m incredibly lucky to be marrying the man I am marrying. 


We just booked our honeymoon!  I’ve always pictured myself somewhere warm (or hot, since winter in Ohio seems like it’s all year around), somewhere with a beach, a nice hotel with room service, a balcony, little soaps and those towels that they fold into swans, elephants, etc….(okay, that part was a little cory).


So Brent did it!  We looked for a long time at where we would want to stay, and finally we decided on Marco Island, Florida!  Six days, five nights at The Hilton Marco Island Beach Resort & Spa!  That’s right baby…S-P-A!  🙂  We’re flying there, too!  Ahh…vacation with Brent!  I’ve gone on vacations with his family, and with my family, and we drove to Houston, TX three years ago together, but this is going to be amazingly wonderful.  I can’t wait!


I’ll leave you with some of my favorite  quotes  from “The Princess Bride” :

Vizzini: Jump in after her!
Inigo Montoya: I can’t swim
Fezzik: I only dog paddle.
Vizzini: AGGHH!


Miracle Max: You rush a miracle man, you get rotten miracles.


Inigo Montoya: That Vizzini, he can *fuss*.
Fezzik: Fuss, fuss… I think he like to scream at *us*.
Inigo Montoya: Probably he means no *harm*.
Fezzik: He’s really very short on *charm*.
Inigo Montoya: You have a great gift for rhyme.
Fezzik: Yes, yes, some of the time.
Vizzini: Enough of that.
Inigo Montoya: Fezzik, are there rocks ahead?
Fezzik: If there are, we all be dead.
Vizzini: No more rhyming now, I mean it.
Fezzik: Anybody want a peanut?


Inigo Montoya: Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.


🙂  I’m going to go home and watch this!
