Well another year has come and gone, and we are 27 hours away from ringing in 2014. I am pleased with the year despite devastating news and family health problems. I am looking forward to a year that is honestly don't know how it is going to go down.
Tomorrow is nye. I'm going to my cousin's wedding! Brian is getting married to Kate, and they invited over 400 people! I'm ready to get my hair done, put on my dress, and dance the night/year away.
Well it's the last Sunday of 2013. It has been a pretty great year all around. I have learn a lot, seen a lot, and been through a lot. I am thankful for the people in my life particularly my friend Lori. I am very excited to begin 2014 off by hanging out with her for interim! We have a board on Pinterest dedicated to a bucket list of things to do. I'm hoping to make 2014 a great year.
This is my current view with the dogs on my bed, comfy new pjs, and Harry potter again.
Reading.. Charlie St. Cloud. I didn't read much because I was busy at work this week.
Writing.. Not much. I don't really want to do anything for the last week of Christmas break. Lol.
Thinking.. That I'm sad break is ending, but I'm ready to start being productive again.
Smelling.. The frozen waffles I just made. Leggo my eggo.
Wishing.. For a good day off. Mom and I were bad and skipped church. We're going to see Saving Mr. Banks today.
Wearing.. A new crew neck sweatshirt (4 bucks at old navy) and new flannel pj pants (6 bucks at old navy).
Loving.. That I'm super sore from two days of work and working out. I like feeling the results. Except now I have what I think is a cold. Bummer.
Wanting.. To go back to sleep.
Needing.. To take a hot shower and get ready for the day. Lol it's already 11am.
Feeling.. Excited for nye. My cousin Brian is getting married to his fiancée Kate on New Year's Eve! It's is going to be a crazy reception with 400 people attending!
Clicking.. Publish before picking up my crocheting needle.
That's about all I want to write. I hope everyone had a great few days celebrating the birth of Jesus! I will do a Christmas recap tomorrow. I just don't have the energy after 8.5 hours of work and one very intense but needed workout.
There's my very little Christmas tree. Mon didn't want a big tree. So our artificial prelighted Christmas tree comes in at a whopping 3.5 feet. Have a good night!
We are beginning the winter solstice, and this means that the days are slowly getting longer. That means spring, my 21st birthday, and more sunshine. There is a snowstorm though so it doesn't make it feel like spring is coming. Well yesterday I wrapped almost all my gifts minus one, watched Christmas Vacation and the Polar Express, and crochet more of my blanket all while wearing footie pajamas. I have the day off of work thank goodness, and I will be getting ready for church right after finishing this post.
Reading.. Charlie St. Cloud. I have other books in mind after that one. I love reading when it isn't for a grade.
Writing.. Christmas cards to family. I sent cards to friends last week, and all seven went to completely different states. IL, WI, IA, IN, CO, MI, and MD.
Thinking.. About all the snow outside right now, and I hope the roads will not be slippery. I do not like driving in the snow.
Smelling.. Not a lot. My nose is stuffy. I think I'm allergic to pet fur. I have two dogs and a cat which probably isn't helping.
Wishing.. That I could have seen my childhood best friends yesterday. My friends from Vegas came in for their grandmas funeral, and we tried to make plans for dinner. I've known them for 15 years.
Wearing.. Nursing school sweatpants, a tanktop, and a towel on my head.
Loving.. All the hours my boss have me at work since the normal opener went on vaca. I work 5am-1pm ish. Getting up at 3:45 is a little tough.
Wanting.. To watch the snow fall all day, but church is calling and Christmas baking after is a lot of fun.
Needing.. To get this towel off my head before my hair dries really weird. Not that I need to do my hair since the snow will ruin it, and I don't have a hat or hood.
Feeling.. A little bit better from the bad news about school (you can read about it in the last post), but I'm still very upset with myself for being in the position I'm in.
Long time no blog. Yes I know I haven't posted in what seems like forever (or just a month). Well you see as a nursing student there aren't even enough hours in the day to talk to friends let alone blog. I'm hoping to pick it back up now that the semester is over.
I'm sad to say that I passed on three out of my four classes in the program. It's hard to explain to non-nursing students, but in order to pass the course your exams have to average a particular score. I knew I was cutting it close with my most difficult course, but I missed it by a couple of points. I'm not going to go into detail about what's going to happen next since I don't even know. I have never been so disappointed. I do not take failure lightly. As this puts me back a whole year in the program, thousands of dollars in tuition and income I would have made, and the fact that I don't get to graduate with my class. So I will figure out what's next probably tomorrow.
I hope you all have a great Sunday! I was going to go to church, but I am not emotionally stable to talk to people about my semester. I'm going Christmas shopping this afternoon with mom. So I'm off to take a shower and do my hair.
