Hi World...yeah, so I'm the worst blogger in time, but I'm new to this journal thing and will, eventually, get the hang of it.

So, as you can see, it was Halloween when I last blogged and it's now getting closer to Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and Valentine's Day.

The holidays were...hellish, but no more so then they should be. Thanksgiving was full of turkey and all the trimmings as well as family chatter that echoes in the rafters after everyone has left plus leftover to hold us over until Christmas. We had the usual family festivities and I think we were all very happy with what Santa brought us. My sister was definitely happy with her present from her fiance: a nice diamond mounted on a white gold band, very pretty and very sparkly. (collective oos and ahhhs are to be heard...now)

New Years, ahh, New Years, a time to eat too many snacks and drink a little too much bubbly. Do I have a resolution? Nope. I'd only break it. So I just want this year to be better then last year and to be back in the arms of my snookie. But that is a goal...not a resolution, um, yeah.

School! Fall semester is over, two A's and a C 3.33 yeah baby! One semester left and I get to graduate. St. Ambrose here I come!

I got to spend a week away from the family with some good friends who I don't get to see often, that was A LOT of fun! People, you have to get out and explore!! There is so much to see in this beautiful country! I will see all fifty states!

So currently: I'm trying to add one more class to my already busy schedule but I'm taking Yoga...so that should help me relax, find harmony, and hopefully my sense of balance. My classes this semester include two computer classes, philosophy: theory of logic, speech: interpersonal communication, yoga: beginning, trig (for review, pre-calculus here I come)! and the unknown class that I have a week to find.
So far, they are mostly enjoyable. Half of the baseball team is in the speech class which makes me want to strangle them all with the snide comments and immature machoism, but hey, it keeps the teachers attention off of me. The computer class is a joke. "This is a mouse, this is how you point with a mouse..." and so on. But I'll sit in the back and do my work and then my homework for my other classes. That's all the gripes for now, but hey, it's only the first week.

So, I think you're all caught up on my life, sad isn't it? I'm finding it amusing. I must dash now, have homework to stare at and a cat to bother.
