Hey guys! I know I have been a little more absent than normal, so excuse me for a second while I dust off some the cobwebs and sweep out the extra dirt that has accumulated in my little corner of the internet.
I have been as busy as they come since the summer session started, not just with school work but also lounging around by the pool with T-Lily and staying up incredibly too late because I'm having too good a time to say goodnight. Also, I don't have a home computer at the moment so I've been using my mobile for Facebook and Pinterest, but not much else. It's hard to blog on that tiny little screen so I usually don't try very hard...although this keyboard for the computer I'm using on campus isn't much better...
So far this summer I'm taking Molten Metals (a 400 level sculpture class) and Digital Imaging (a 300 level computer/graphic design class). So far Molten Metals is my favorite, despite the fact that it's at 8:30 in the morning and I slept through my alarm today... Digital Imaging has so far proved to be a less challenging easy course that I already seem to know how to do. Hello underwater basket weaving credits! Nice of you to help me graduate on time.
I've also come pretty far in transitioning to a mostly vegetarian sometimes vegan diet (where occasionally I slip up and eat some chicken). So far I have been loving the changes. I feel more energized throughout the day and less guilty about stuffing my face with apple slices instead of cupcakes...not that I ever do that... Pilates seem to really be helping out my attitude too. I don't need to be a lean mean fighting machine, but I'd like to look nice in a swimsuit. You know how it goes.
Other than that, I have just been spending copious amounts of time with my friends before I have to move an hour and a half away the end of June. Sometimes I just wish I could hurry up and be back already and sometimes I don't ever want to leave. I don't want to give up proximity to people I love dearly to go student teach, which is something that I don't think I even want to do. I'm gonna go ahead and get the certification anyway because I think it will be beneficial and I'll regret it in the future if I don't, but lately I have to keep talking myself into it more and more to justify the fact that I'm not backing out of it. I think it will be an interesting adventure.
And we all know how much I love a good adventure!
