Here’s some of what’s going on lately.
Last saturday March 15, me, Shauny’s friend Dani, and her future sister-in-law gave Shauny a bridal shower. It was really fun. Dani recorded Darron (the fiance) answering a bunch of questions, and if Shauny got them wrong, she had to chew some gum. Her mouth got pretty full! But I’ll cut her some slack, she was nervous, and they were weird questions that most people don’t know. For example: “What song reminds Darron of you?” That’s a tough one! I’ve never asked a guy I was dating that question. I was really glad we had the turnout we did since it was during spring break and I was worried no one would show. We didn’t have a ton of younger girls, but there were about 20 people there anyway. After the shower Shauny’s mom took us to get pedicures. That was SO sweet of her! I absolutely LOVE pedicures. Her mom is such a nice lady.

I’m so excited for their wedding in San Diego. Thanks for getting married in my favorite city! Now I get to spend some time there at the end of April. I’m going to be staying with Shauny in San Clemente before they get married. I’m so excited. I’m going to miss her all Summer while her and Darron are in Florida selling. I think I’m going to have to make a trip to Miami. Oh darn… that will be rough! hahaha.
What else is new? I’m currently making some exciting plans for my future. I can’t wait to put them in action. None of that will happen unless it all falls into place so we’ll see! I’m just excited for the possibilities! It’s so nice when you realize you still have the freedom to make any choices you want.
Last thing… I want to buy a bike. Anyone who has information on what kind, and where to go to get one, please please pass it my way. It would be much appreciated!
Ok here’s an equation for you. Let me see if you can understand. I made it simple because, well, let’s face it, I’m not a mathematician. I’m taking Stats right now… so I hope you can make sense of this equation.
Ok… now for the answer…..
(Oh, the picture is of me and my roommate Shauny, she’s great!)
Psychology classes are really cool because most classes I have taken so far turn into discussions. While most fall under the typical “lecture” title, they are often anything but. Last semester I was taking Human Sexuality, Adolescent Development, and Psychology of Interpersonal Relationships. All we did in each class was get into in depth discussions on various topics covered by the class. I didn’t mind at all that my classes didn’t get out til 9:30 pm! Even after working all day, they were definitely interesting enough to keep me entertained!
Last semester was really cool because we got to write an autobiography on our adolescence for one of my classes. I figured it was going to be easy, but then we had to go really in depth and he expected us to talk about EVERYTHING or we would get a bad grade. I had to rehash some hard stuff from my teen years, and when I put them down on paper I realized some very interesting things about my past and about me now. It was really a great experience, as well as I have a 26 page autobiography that is a great journal for someone to read about me. However, I did cheat a little, I refused to put some stuff down because I got sick of writing and it was already a long paper!
This semester is a little harder, my abnormal psych class is on saturday mornings (ugh!), and my math class is twice a week at night. For some reason this semester is wearing me out more than the previous one, but I still really like my major! I’m excited for the counseling classes, and the clinical therapy classes. That could be cool to learn. Well this post wasn’t as fun as the others, but I’ll do something exciting and post soon!
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” -Nelson Mandela
I absolutely love this quote. It is so right! Who are we NOT to be wonderful people? So when someone makes you feel down or inadequate, remember this, You rock! I love empowering stuff! :o)
Well here I am again. Creating an online journal for all to see. I have tons of friends on this site, and maybe I’ll let them have a peek into my life, since I get one into theirs! This is the 2nd time I’ve started a blog, maybe this time I won’t delete it after 3 days! :o)
This is my first post, I have nothing really to say since I should be doing other things that are more productive at the moment. I’ll post again soon!
