I'm still here...

I am alive, but I am without internet at my current residence. I have begun the semester, and it is going pretty well. No complaints. I will eventually put up a proper post when I have internet for more than the ten minutes between classes. Not that not having internet is a bad thing. I am getting plenty of work done, and I am getting more than usual amounts of sleep.

I am linking up for the first time about what is going on currently in my life. I don't know how successful this will be since my life is fairly boring at the current moment. Happy Sunday, and here we go...

reading blogs. I don't have the reading bug, and it is slowly killing me. All I wanted to do over break was read and read and read some more. It didn't happen. Harry Potter is calling my name shortly. 
writing this blog obviously. Also, I am journaling. I am attempting to document my life, thoughts, feelings, and memories. I feel that when I look back on life I won't remember the little details and what better way than to write in a beautiful journal. 
listening to an infomercial on tv from another room. I hear the refrigerator humming, and the steady breaths from my two crazy mutts (terra & tommy). I am linking up for the first time about what is going on currently in my life. I don't know how successful this will be since my life is fairly boring at the current moment. Happy Sunday, and here we go...
thinking about going to sleep in my comfy bed, and not waking up to an alarm tomorrow morning. I seriously detest alarm clocks; they make my heart skip a beat. 
smelling the goldfish that I am currently snacking on. They are the healthy kind made with whole grain. I feel as if that is an oxymoron. Healthy and goldfish should not be in the same sentence. 
wishing that I could light a candle in my bedroom, and fall asleep with it burning. No I am not asking for an early death, but I feel so much pressure to stay awake when a candle is lit. What if they had a timer that would automatically blow them out ten minutes after you fall asleep? 
hoping for a fantastic semester as a commuter. I am honestly scared for the adjustment. 
wearing capri yoga pants and my louisville state sweatshirt from basketball camp back in '07.
loving heat. The great Lake County, IL is like an ice box. I am sitting in a warm house, and I am SO thankful for heat.
wanting to watch netflix for the rest of the week. I know that is a long shot, but hey you never know. 
needing to start packing and getting ready to move into my aunt's house for the semester on Wednesday. 
feeling pain particularly in the lower back area. I threw out my back at work yesterday. This is not a new concept for me since I originally injured my back in seventh grade at a basketball practice.  
clicking the next episode button on Netflix. I am currently watching Army Wives (season 6) this is my newest tv-show addiction.

That's it for now.... Link up for your currently post here

Is it Saturday?

I think it is. Today I worked at the always lovely Panera Bread, and I got off around 2:30 this afternoon. I headed home to relax for a little while. I sprained my back at work. Trust me it is as bad as it sounds; I have been sitting very still ever since. 

I went to dinner with my mom in Northbrook, and we went to a pizza place called Barnaby's. This place was around when my mom was younger than I am now. Their pizza is fantastic! It is a thin crust pizza that is super crusty and delisious! After dinner we went to Nordstrom Rack and Marshalls for window shopping. I like window shopping alot until you find something you really like. I bought a pair of Michael Kors Jeans for 30 dollars; which was a fourth of the original price. 

Last thing to mention before I go... THE HAWKS WON!!!

I am becoming a hockey fan little by little, and the Chicago Blackhawks are definitely my favorite team. I am very glad that the lockout is over, and that the games are finally underway. I hope that the season doesn't go to fast. Happy Saturday!

Hey all...

I know you are probably wondering why I haven't blogged in forever. Or maybe you are not and don't wait around for a new post from me. I have been working crazy hours while on break, and I have two more days of work. After that it's laundry, laundry, packing, and laundry. I am moving (needs its own post to explain), and I am getting ready for a new semester to begin on Thursday.

Who begins a semester on a Thursday? Lol.

I am hoping to blog before the semester begins, and good luck to all those going into a new semester. Work hard, study hard, and most of all have fun!

Happy New Year!
Can I be one to say that I have a hard time thinking it's actually 2013? You mean that I actually survived the dreaded 12-21-12? Now, I have to adjust to writing 2013 on all my lovely homework assignments. I feel that it is going to be a great year. I normally don't look ahead at the beginning of the year and think about all I am going to do or accomplish. I foresee a lot happening in a good way! I will be turning the big 2-0 (scares me to death), I will be halfway done with my degree, and hopefully I can get a great job at the hospital again. I have a lot to look forward to, but a lot I need to work on. I want to work on myself this year in my selfishness, my attitude, my conversations, and my faith. I am going to make this post short and sweet because I am ready to hit the hay! Xoxo -b
