Playing Ketchup

...err...catch up...

It's been WAY too long since I've posted. But, I'm sitting at the library at school and decided I needed a short break and you needed to know what was going on in my life. So, here's a post. But, I think I'm going to do this through bullet points because that's where my brain is.

  • I had a really rough patch for a couple of weeks. It was nothing like it is sometimes, but I couldn't hardly get out of bed. I was just so frustrated with school. But, not even really with school. I talked on the phone to someone who should always tell me how wonderful and amazing I'm doing at school and instead they told me how I needed to do better because "I'm better than B's. I could make A's in every class if I just put in enough effort." Fact: I put in tons of work to school, I'm doing really well in school this semester making As and Bs. And, at some point, I have to take a break from studying to eat, sleep, and see my husband. Once I worked through things internally I felt much better! And, things are back on track.
  • The timing couldn't be better. This week and next week is the last round of tests before finals. I need to do awesome. Some of my classes I'm making Bs in I could make As in if this round of testing goes well. So, I'm studying like crazy!
  • I was saddened when I logged into blogger today. I knew it was just a matter of time before I started losing followers because I wasn't blogging enough. It just kind of hurt when I saw it actually happen. It was only one person, but it's one person who won't know this:
  • I went to my first Halloween Costume Party EVER this past weekend. It was great I had tons of fun. And our costumes were AWESOME!!!
Me, as the Leg Lamp from A Christmas Story.

The Hubs as Ralphie in the Pink Bunny Suit
(See...TOTALLY worth stick around for!)
  • I have about 5 posts in draft mode in blogger. I can't wait to actually finish writing them up to share with you. Some of them are seriously awesome.
  • I've started trying to get healthier the past few weeks. The first week, I cut out fast food. The second week, I limited myself to one coke a day. This week, I'm trying to 6 glasses of water a day and continuing the things I've previously done. I've actually lost a few pounds on those first two things alone. I'm pretty proud of myself. I've also started reading about the Low Glycemic Index Diet. It seems like something that is going to work for me and over the coming weeks and months I'm going to slowly start implementing the diet. I can't just quit everything I've been doing in one day and start something new overnight and so far this step by step method is really working for me! Prayers that I can keep it up, please!
  • My insomnia's been flaring up the past couple of weeks. I can't seem to go to bed before 5 AM which makes getting up for classes at 8:30 AM a little difficult. I'm doing better this week. But, pray that it sticks soon. I HATE when this happens!
  • I'm totally addicted to the song Cruise by Florida Georgia Line. Seriously, it's in my head all of the time!!

  • I got a list of classes in my minor being offered at school next semester and I'm so excited about them! I think I'm going to take at least two of the classes. I love when I'm looking at class offerings in my new major/minor. All of the descriptions are SO fascinating that I could take the whole next semester in my minor...luckily, I'll be able to take at least 2, possibly 3. One is the intro class to Women and Gender Studies (my minor), one is an English/Literature class which I need 3 more hours in and one can be taken as a sociology course, which is my major. I have to look at the details of my major again to plan it better, but it still excites me so much! I really can't wait to design my schedule next for next semester...the decision to change my major was the best decision I ever could have made!!
Ok. I told myself I would blog for only 30 minutes and this is the end of my 30 minutes! I hope to blog again soon, if it's still awhile, please don't leave me!!
