I have a blog.. still?

I was stalking other people's blogs and found my own. Not sure how happy I am to know people can locate my blog that hasn't been updated for almost a year so easily BUT, now I"m going to update! Sit, read, and enjoy.. or else.
Let's see.. I start school, again, on the 27th. Last semester before I have my Associates. It only took me 5ish years of college jumping to get this awesome Associates Degree but, at least it's something. I will be taking:

Philosophy - Ethics and Values
Math 1050
Writing 2010

Three of the five are online. Not a huge fan of online classes but I'm hoping this will make it less stressful. It also means I won't have to make the huge commute to Orem as often. Woo!
Our home is currently being built in Eagle Mountain. SO EXCITED! Our hole is dug and the footings were put in. Not sure what that means. They sent us a picture and that didn't help but at least it means they're working on it!
Check it out..

That's our main focus right now. Probs because of the enormous amount of debt we will be taking on but at least we'll be done with rent. Yay? No, I'm super excited! It was fun to sit down and pick out every little thing. This house will truly be ours!
David is the same. He still enjoys his job, for the most part, and continues to get promoted. Each time he moves up, he has mixed feelings. While we love the extra income, the higher he gets, the less he gets to actually program. I guess he just can't help being awesome. It can be a curse.
Sadly, our lives are pretty boring right now. I think I updated y'all about a year ago and, not much has changed.
We're still living it up. Yep. Check me out.

Awesome quote.

I found a quote that describes my life perfectly..
"Stress: The confusion created when one's mind overrides the body's basic desire to choke the living daylights out of some jerk who desperately deserves it"
That is all.

Update on school..

It's going freakin awesome! I just got my first Math test score back and.. 105%! WOO! I also just took my first Humanities quiz and.. 100%! I still haven't gotten my Music paper score but, I think I did pretty good. I've been going to every class, everyday. I've been, somewhat, keeping up on my reading and just feel really good about school so far! I have exams coming up but, I'm going to study, study, study! I've decided I'm going to rock every exam. THAT'S right! This is very short but I have nothing else to say about school. It's still school.

School started. Laziness is over.. for the most part.

School has started. Notice I didn't end that sentence with an exclamation point, like I usually do with just about every sentence. Don't get me wrong, I'm ready to start school again and actually like a few of my classes but.. I will have no life. My classes are as follows:

College Algebra 0990
American Popular Music
Intro. Criminal Justice
Humanities through the Arts

What I feel about each class goes as follows:
College Algebra 0990:
Kill me now. That about sums it up. One plus, my Professor is a cute, old lady who just loves teaching. I love professors like that!
American Popular Music:
I've only had this class once but loved the lecture. I really think I'll enjoy this class. The professor knows a TON about music and there doesn't seem to be an overwhelming amount of homework, which is always nice.
Intro. Criminal Justice:
I know I made the right choice with my major. I love everything about this class and I've only had it once. I'm SO excited! I should have started this major years ago.
Humanities through the Arts:
I thought about withdrawing when there was only 5 of us in class when it started. Luckily, other people started coming in 15 or so minutes later and there ended up being about 20 students in the end. I decided to give this class one chance and I would make my final decision after. I loved it. This class has so much involvement with art, I just love it. The homework seems a bit tough but, I think I'll really enjoy the lectures. For a final project, I can actually oil paint and turn it in. How cool is that?

This last week was pretty rough. My legs and feet are in so much pain but, it's worth it. I'm finally ready to be in school full time and I can't WAIT to get my Bachelor's degree in Forensic Science. It fits me so well. I know this career choice will be something I love! It only took me how many years to figure it out? I'd rather not give that answer.
One thing I realized from all my classes was, there is always a thinks-they-know-it-all person. Seriously. In every single one of my classes. I'm pretty sure I'll be killing one of them by the end of the semester. I just don't understand how someone can think that making a comment after EVERYTHING the professor says is actually a good idea. It's ridiculous.
On a different note.. I started reading The Mortal Instruments series. I'm on the first book and I'm really, really enjoying it! It's definetely similar to Twilight but, I think, way better written. I should say that the story line is similar but the characters are more interesting. This isn't a vampire book but it does have an oridnary girl who can see a certain group of people that humans shouldn't be able to see so, she's special. Then you have the love triangle and the evil people trying to kill humans. I would say it's more mature than Twilight, for sure, but it is very similar so if you didn't like Twilight, you may not like this. I would recommend at least giving it a try! My next book, after this series, will be.. Witch and Wizard by James Patterson.
So the next few months will be school, school, and more school. I'm sure my future blog posts will be venting about homework, obnoxious people, and anything else school related. Read at your own risk.

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas everyone!
I'm so thankful for this time of year. I have the best husband in the world! He's always there for me when I need him and always comes through for me when I'm in need of comfort. This time of year makes you really think about the people you're closest to. I feel like I'm able to see who truly cares for me, loves me and would do anything for me. My family means the world to me and I'm so thankful for them as well. Thank you, David, for putting up with my venting, especially lately.. ha!, my ditziness, my forgetfulness, and my occasional complaining. That's right, I said occasional. :)
I love you! You are a truly my best friend and I don't think I could make it without you. I know, tender.

And it starts.

I'm all registered for school and as nervous as can be!
My classes are as follows..
American Popular Music
Humanities for the Arts
Intro to Criminal Justice
Introductory Algebra
I only have classes Tuesday-Thursday which is awesome. AND my earliest class is at 2pm. Again, awesome. If you know me at all, I am NOT a morning person. Not even a little. Now, I have to purchase books. Eek. I'm going to rent all of them except for the Criminal Justice one. I'd like to keep any books having to do with Forensic Science. After Spring semester, I will be 30% done! I hope to have my bachelors within 3 years. That means constant school but, it will be worth it. I need to take advantage of not having to work because my husband has an awesome job. I can be a full-time student and not have to be in debt for it. Hooray!
School.. here I come!
