Because sometimes I like to remember how good I have it

+My french braids looked really good yesterday
+I live with two of my best friends
+JFLutes always knows how to help me feel better
+Only one full day until Seattle!
+I got to cashier at work yesterday
+I can jog three miles and not want to die
+I have the ability to express myself with words.
+I'm listening to the new Ingrid Michaelson CD and starting to like it
+There is a small possibility I'll get a nap today
+Thursday is temple day!

Maybe imma be busier than I thought

You know how I get to do cool things like start IVs on my classmates? Well let me just tell you, that cool reward does not come with a hefty price. I've been sitting in my kitchen for the last seven hours working on a giant post assessment for clinical. Okay, I did take a short break somewhere in the middle to make pumpkin muffins so maybe I've only been working for six hours.
On the bright side:
+ I'm using the textbooks that they make me buy for school. So far I've cited six of my textbooks on this assignment alone. Who knew that textbooks were helpful?
+This is the first of many post assessment that I'll be doing this semester so hopefully I'll get faster. (Please bless I get faster!)
+I'm still learning a lot of really cool things and while this assignment is tedious, I don't totally hate it.

Two weeks of heaven

I'm having a hard time finding the words to write about the Christmas Cruise so I'm mostly going to rely on pictures. and maybe a few words. Basically, I want to live on a warm beach. I want to make a million dollars and then retire and live on a beach in Mexico. Swimming in the ocean, I mean, come on. Favorite parts include:
-Double desserts
-Early dinner with the old people
-Second dinner
-Hanging out in our tiny room
-Not even Belizing that we were in different countries
-Exercising around the deck
-The GI bug!
-Napping in the sun
-Swimming in the Ocean
-Supermart in Mexico
-Christmas spectacular
The list goes on and on but I'm not going to rub it in any longer. It was such a great week!
And if a Christmas cruise weren't enough, I got to spend the next eight days in California with Joshua Lutes and family. I've got one picture from the whole trip. Me and Joshua at the baptism of Jeremy and Alec. There were pictures of us with the moustache cookies that we made but I forgot to get them off of the computer in California. Sad day. But this is a pretty cute picture if I do say so myself.
Best parts of the California trip include:
-Going to Costco every other day
-Reading Dinosaur Comics
-Wearing shorts and sitting in the sun
-Remembering that charades is awful and fun at the same time. We shall forevermore call it awfully-fun, I guess.
-Sherlock Holmes
-My bed that took up all of the floor space in Ashleigh's room
-Miniature golf at Castle Park (meh)
-Andrew's sad face
-Just Dance with eight people watching
In the end, break was a blast. Life is a blast and there is so much to love about it. I am so lucky to have so many great people in my life. I say it every year but I'll say it again, BEST CHRISTMAS EVER!
