Punkins and such...

So these are the punkins that Seth and I carved last weekend. They are hideously frightening... no? I think so :)

We had a lot of fun.
He is a lot of fun.
I love him very much :)

So things have been pretty good lately. Seth finished his training at Presley Ridge and now he's working there. That's where he his now. Workin' with the kiddos. He doesn't like it very much right now, but he's only been "working" for 3 or 4 days now. He'll get used to it I'm sure.

I really am enjoying school right now. I just got my placement for education 412, which is 40 observation hours and a some teaching experience. I'll be doing that at Gilmer Co. High, which is GREAT because it will only take me five minutes to get there (VS Calhoun which took at least 45 min.) Very excited about that!

So I started something new. Its called INSANITY. It is a workout program, if you've never heard of it. I personally like it a lot more than P90X because there are no weights and I actually feel like I've accomplished something when I finish it every day.

< My little Punkin!

It works you SO hard and you feel it in your core when you're done. It is not easy... do not be fooled. It is harder than P90X for sure, but it is SO worth it if you want to lose weight, which I do, and I will. I'm excited to see some results :)

What else is new...

Oh, my sister and I are both running for Homecoming Queen this year. I think that's pretty snazzy. It would be a pretty cool year for Andi and I both if we both won, but it's cool enough that we are both running. I ran at WCCS my senior year, but knew I wouldn't win. I think Andi has a pretty good chance of winning at high school. She's popular and pretty. I don't know about me at GSC though. FCA nominated me and all I know is that it will be fun!!! I'm going to hand out candy and all that jazz...

So I think that's about it for me...
I'm feeling tired. It's about bed time. Class at 8am.

A month later

My oh my! It's been almost a month since I last posted. NOT GOOD!

A lot has happened! I have a good three week start into my senior year of college now. I'm loving my classes. My schedule is sooo light (for now, until I get my field observation placements) and I find myself with lots of free time. I don't know what to do with myself!!

Seth got a job at Pressely Ridge in Clarksburg. He just finished a week of training and he starts on Monday, so that's exciting. I think anytime someone gets a new, fresh change of pace it makes life a little more exciting. I'm just really glad that Seth's adapting well to the new environment! He made friends out of his new co-workers, which is important! He seems to like the things he was trained to do, and I am so glad about that. I was so worried that he would hate training and he would hate this job, but as of right now things seem to be looking pretty good! I think there is a lot of opportunity awaiting Seth.

But what about me?? Well, the banjo playing is coming along QUITE nicely, if I do say so myself. Buddy taped our last rehearsal and I got to hear myself play and sing. It was a good confidence booster.

What else... I was nominated for Homecoming queen this year! That's exciting!! I feel like I am definitely making the most out of this last semester here in G-ville.

We had a TORNADO come through Gilmer County yesterday!! We obviously are fine. But we all got really excited for a little bit! Then when we really realized we were in no immediate danger, it wasn't fun anymore... lol

I read Moby Dick. Period. That's all that needs to be said. Except... I am so glad it's over!! I still have to read a few more criticisms about the book and two Mondays from now I have to write an in-class paper on the book... I have no idea what I have to write about yet, and that makes me nervous!

Tomorrow is my birthday, and I turn 22!!! Last year at this time I celebrated with my (not-at-the-time) boyfriend and Mallory and went to Mo-town to get tat'd up!! Here's a recent picture! It still looks so good and I absolutely love it!

Nothing crazy like that for me this year! LOL, I accidentally scheduled myself to work this weekend so I can't really go anywhere anyway even if I wanted to...

Right now I'm just feeling extremely happy and blessed by God. That's all that really matters anyway :)
