I’ve felt boring lately. Not bored. I have had plenty to do.I feel boring.

I could blog about how my economics book took over my brain last week. I was dreaming about socialism. Really. That’s boring.

I could tell you about my left shoulder that popped out of place or pulled some muscle of some sort, making normal daily tasks like fixing my hair and unloading the dishwasher painful and extremely annoying. But that’s really boring.

I could also tell you how Chase has decided to start learning to play guitar. When I moved out of my parents house I thought that I’d never have to listen to the tuning of a guitar at home ever again. I’m actually enjoying it though, I love music! I guess that’s not very boring, but not very blog worthy. Maybe tweet worthy.

I could probably blog about a lot of little things, but I guess I’d rather you think that I fell off of the face of the earth than think that I’m boring. Oh well… I’ve come to realize that, hey! I am a little boring. That’s okay! : )

Steak Dinner

But I will tell you one thing, I love steak. Chase and I made a delicious steak dinner Sunday night. Steak with a side of skillet roasted potatoes, sauteed zucchini, and a lovely piece of buttered bread. Possibly my favorite meal. Really. And to drink? Chocolate Milk. : )

Anyway, if you ever wonder why I don’t post as often; it’s just because I feel boring. That’s all!

The Office – Who or Whom?

October 4, 2009

I’m sorry the quality of this clip is so bad, but Chase and I watched this episode a few weeks ago and I’ve been thinking about it ever since. I laught out loud everytime I watch it. I thought I’d share it with you!

goodbye summer, hello fall

October 2, 2009

I finally said goodbye to summer this week. Summer is my favorite season and I really hate to see it go. Mostly because I hate being cold and I think that everything looks better in the sunshine. And it’s very rare to see much sunshine once fall has started. We had a beautiful sunset the other night and I took some pictures of it.

I love the idea of sitting at home, grabbing a blanket, and reading a great book. Or baking a delicious dessert and drinking a yummy coffee with it to keep me warm. But all the other things that come with fall don’t really seem that exciting to me.

I really don’t like rain. Mostly because I’m short and I don’t own a single pair of pants that aren’t too long. I’ve tried hemming them myself and I always hate them because I’ve always grown up with pants that are too long so that’s just the way I like it. Having too long pants isn’t that bad for like 4 months of the year. The rest of the eight months I spend holding my pants up while I’m running through parking lots trying to get out of the pouring down rain. Then when I get home I can’t stand wearing my wet pants so I take them off and put on a new pair. Then I realize that I forgot something at the grocery store and have to go back outside. Now I have two pairs of wet pants and freezing feet. This is what fall feels like to me. Wet.

Well this year when fall started coming around I was actually started to feel excited. I was waking up to mornings like these:

Fall Morning

I love the sunshine, and I don’t mind the cold if it’s kind of sunny out and I have a cute coat on. But most mornings that start like that I end up looking out windows that look like this:

Rainy Windows

Wet. Wet. Wet. But I’ve decided to accept it and enjoy it. So this morning I woke up early and whipped up some pumpkin chocolate chip muffins and made a couple latte’s. That was the first time I acknowledged Fall. (That and the fact that we had to pull out our little space heater earlier this week.)

a well balanced breakfast

Goodbye Summer, Hello Fall!


growing up

September 26, 2009


I started college this week! It’s been fun I’m taking all of my classes online and I’m actually really enjoying them.

I feel like this is a God thing. I filled out my FAFSA and applied for a few colleges and waited to hear back. I wasn’t really expecting to get any financial aid but figured “what could it hurt?” Then I only heard back from one college saying that they’d pay for 12 credits worth of school. Taking 3 classes worked out to be 15 credits so I’m really not having to pay that much extra. So I was really excited about that.

Then when I was reading through everyone’s introductions for my English class and saw someone saying that they were in their second quarter at Peninsula (the same college I’m going to) and they were going for their Mutlimedia Communications degree. I read it and read it again. Could this be true? A Multimedia Communications degree? At the college I’m already going to? It must not be available to complete online.

So I go back to Peninsula’s website looking all over for it and couldn’t find it anywhere. So then I googled it. And sure enough, there it is! Available at Peninsula College a Multimedia Communications degree to complete all online!

Maybe I should rewind a little bit and tell you that I’ve been wanting to become a web designer since high school. (Yeah, 3 whole years ago) I’ve never lost that interest and I’ve always thought that it would be a great job for me to have and be able to work from home.

Knowing that I’ve had this interest for so long I was looking everywhere for a two year degree in this field. The only place I could find this was at the Art Institute and I didn’t really think that I’d get enough financial aid there so I didn’t even bother paying the $150 application fee.

So this whole thing at this college came as a shock. What are the chances that the one college that would give me financial aid would also have a program that I have always dreamed of doing? I defnitely think it was a God thing.

This quarter I’m taking English 101, Economics 101 and Media 201. I’m really enjoying my Media class; it’s all about digital image editing and I’m learning a lot about photoship. I’ve been using Photoshop for a couple years but I’ve never actually learned how to use it. I’m so excited for this opportunity and can’t wait to see how I do!

You Capture – Up Close

September 17, 2009

I love taking close up pictures, so this challenge was a lot of fun!

Chase and I went to the beach this week during the sunset, so here is a picture of tire tracks in the sand.


Here are some coffee beans that accidentally spilled on the table. So I had to take a picture of them. : )

coffee love

I really love taking pictures of my ring, it’s always fun to have an excuse to take a shot of it!
