That is how I feel about life.
The end.

Just kidding. I just wanted to put out a short post saying that I am alive, and no I have not fallen off the face of the earth. I have been busy to say the least. Blogging is the last thing on my mind. I have three weeks left of this semester. Once that is over I will finally be able to breath again. I hope all is well with my lovely followers (and anonymous ones). I hope your turkey day break was fantastic, and I hope to put up a real post soon.

And for a random picture....
This is Libby.

Looming Room Checks and a Muscle Practical.

Hello! Today is Friday. This means that there are 5 whole day until I get to go home for Thanksgiving break. How excited am I? Well considering that Lori and I have our own countdowns for a few weeks now, I would say that I am pretty excited. I can't wait to see my family, my dogs, and hopefully my friends. I also get the opportunity to work about 12 at the lovely Panera Bread.

Room checks are quickly approaching! Brace yourselves.... Just Joking. I am not looking forward to seeing the suite clean. I like it when it looks lived in. Abby and I have a fairly clean room. It is nowhere near perfect, but it isn't cluttered. Cassandra and Kaity's room on the other hand looks like a tornado went through it.
This is actually pretty similar to their room. Good thing we all get along.
 I doesn't bug me in the slightest. I can become rich by just walking into their room. Kaity just happens to leave money and change all over and especially on the floor. Man, if finders keepers was socially acceptable I would be rolling in the quarters, literally. I get the lovely job of cleaning and de-molding the shower. It is not that bad, but the mold does intimidate me to no end. I have been spraying it since Monday hoping that it will slowly go away. We may or may not be pushing the date back so that we can go to our colleges NCCAA championship game against Bethel College tonight! Go Trolls!

Go Trolls!
On a much better note than cleaning a moldy shower, I come bearing good news that after weeks and countless hours studying cadavers, models, and posters of the human muscles that I passes my practical with a 97%. Best Friday Ever.

Say "hello" to Greg... He has nice muscles.

I hope everyone has a fun and safe weekend. Happy Weekend before Thanksgiving!!
I am going downtown Chicago for the Michigan Avenue Lights Festival tomorrow. What are your plans for the weekend?

one year.

Today is my one year blog anniversary. Yes, I am a complete dork writing about creating this blog one year ago today. With it being such a special day for my blog, I took a moment to think about what I have accomplished or done in the past year, and also thinking to the future.

It always shocks me when I look back at my life and see how far I have gone or what I have accomplished. I look back and think, "Who is that girl? She thinks she knows everything, she has everything under control, and she is just living her life with no worries. Who does she think she is?" Not. It is just weird to imagine myself being a freshman in college again. We thought we were the stuff! We thought we were the coolest kids on campus, and that we ruled the school. Now we just think we are cool, but are so busy and stressed out to worry about being cool.

I think about how far I have come since last year in other ways too. I think about my jobs and future career. I have two great jobs to go back to in a few weeks after finals. I have an amazing opportunity to be in the nursing program at my college. I have so many things to look forward to in the next few years. By this time next year, I will be wearing blue scrubs and going to a hospital for clinicals. In three years, I will (cross my fingers) be working in a hospital supporting myself and paying off my debt. Who knows if this is what God even has in mind.

Love it
1 year. 94 posts. 15 comments. 10 followers. 4, 586 pageviews.
Through all that, I am still Addicted to Life. 

Bye for now, my muscle flashcards and statistics homework are calling my name.

Worst Blogger Ever.

Happy Monday Everyone! It is November already! When did this happen? Welcome to frozen fingers, nose, ears, boot-wearing days, and darkness by 4:45. Why is the time change so mean? I am a daytime loving, sun absorbing, and Vitamin D craving kind-of girl.


To the real reason of this post. I am the worlds worst blogger, and I am
truly sorry. I am not the best blogger, but I truly try to come up with or think about ideas for new posts. I just didn't really have any creativity for writing a new post. So I am going to ramble. You have two choices.
1) Close this tab.
2) Scroll and read.
- No you won't hurt my feelings if you don't read it.

I want to share some of my favorite pins from Pinterest because this post needs some color.

Probably my favorite quote right now.
bed room ideas
Love the colors and the ruffles!
Chunky cable knit throw
Ugh! I just want to knit something!
So sweet
Puppy! Makes me miss mine!
My friend Lori and I have a countdown going until turkey day (technically the Wednesday before) and it is down to 15 days! That is 15 horribly long, stressful days filled with papers, presentations, and practicles. 
Adios for now... Maybe I will be a better blogger in two days?
