Can I have some?

welcome to my blog.

a place to post. a place to eat oreos. a place to vent. a place to heal.

i started this blog so i could use a different outlet besides munching on fattening oreos. as if that has done any good... *mind wanders to oreo package in the house...*

then i realized that oreos can be semi symbolic. if you are are that crazy about oreos that is. which... i am.

eating oreos is therapeutic for me. when i am struggling or when i need a pick me up. they have chocolate. and sugar. both of which help lift my mood. not to mention that i eat them soaked with milk, which is my miracle drink.

i post my posts to not only get stuff out. there may be people who read my blog who have been in the same kind of situations as i have. i hope reading them and knowing that others have gone through things like i have, will be to you what eating oreos does to me.

and yes. i didn't capitalize anything in here. i just felt like it. deal with it.

munch up.

New Post!

Hey all. It has been an interesting week. Among other things.

I knew I wanted to post... but I can't remember why. Right now my mind is too filled with other things and there are questions and pain confusing and distracting me almost constantly.

I need to do laundry to prepare myself for visiting family again this weekend, I need to wash dishes so we can... uh... eat. All I want to do is veg and drown my aching heart in computer games or reading, or other such things. But I know I need to be busy.

Rocket Scientist (who shall now be known as Pro Boxer) surprised me with a new cup mute and book for Christmas. The book was The Squire, His Knight, and His Lady by Gerald Morris. If you haven't heard of it you should check it out. It is a sequel of The Squire's Tale, and he has many books following the same pattern as these two, with the same characters, but after the first two books you are following different characters. You still run into the same two characters however in the other books. I love them. They are based on Arthurian legends, and are really fun.

The kids got some fun things... among the family gifts, we got Wii Mario Kart, The Princess and the Frog (yes, I know... I'm the only girl in the family, but still... I insisted we got this for Christmas, and Bug and Pro Boxer likes it too. So there.), and Bug got a fun car set thing with a track for it to drive on and Goof Ball got a little book... thing... that is electronic, and has a microphone and a piano and drum... and well... Santa thought it might encourage him to communicate. Cross your fingers for us. ^_^

Anyway... that is a minor update. School starts again soon and of the three classes I was on a waiting list for, two of them have opened up for me. Things are going well... neither of us have a calling in our ward still, but we are waiting. This ward is more settled than any other ward we have been in, so they don't need replacement callings as quickly as the wards with lots of apartments. I feel really weird not having anything to do in the ward, but hopefully we'll get something soon.

I guess that is all for now. If I ever remember what I was going to say to you all earlier, I will try to remember to post it.

It is time. Time for me to wait and wait and wait. And relax! WOO!

(I'm sure you have been waiting and waiting and waiting as well... but that might just be me assuming that you have haunted my blog for a new post... I can dream, right?)

My first semester back at school is now over, and I can relax. Which is a good thing, as I have a horrible cold which doesn't seem to want to go away. My last final on Wednesday I took while my brain was hardly coherent. We'll hope I did good. :) So now I'm waiting on my teachers to post my grades. On the few that I have seen, my lowest grade is a B+ which is encourageable. Though I think there were only... four classes posted, and one of them (a B-) the teacher had already contacted me and said that she put the wrong grade in and is trying to fix it. :) The other two were A's.

I am also waiting, quite literally, to get into two classes for next semester. One of them doesn't show any signs of letting up, I'm twelfth in line and have been since I got in the wait list. The other one I started in 3rd or 4th place, and am now next in line. I'm kind of worried about my schedule for next semester, and wonder if I'm trying to do too much. I'm not sure what kind of work load these classes will have, so that makes me a bit worried. But at least I'm still going to be in Jazz band and Wind Orchestra (the elite band) to keep my sanity. As well as, I guess, the basket ball band. Free games!

SO! Now that you are updated with me, I'll just post pictures ("Finally!") to update you all on the fam. Enjoy! (ps... my 16 year old niece took these... she is totally amazing!)

Look at the camera, Goofball!

What does your gastronomical apparatus admonish to you?

Speaking of Oreos, my life has been exceptionally busy. Oh? The hour is late? Look at that, it sure is. Well, as of late (haha), this hour has been something I see everyday, though not entirely by choice. I have some cute pictures to post, some stories to tell, but they will have to wait until later. Maybe after my third concert this week. And my other thing I need to do... oh, and let's not forget about that...

In any case, know that I haven't forgotten you. There has just been a longer and more pressing list to do ahead of blogging. "There's life outside of blogging?? Really??" Yes. I have found it. Now if I could just create some space or find that spacetime continuum that we talked about today in Astronomy and add a few hours to a day then I would have time to catch up with you all. Until then, you'll just have to wait with baited breath. Unless of course you find life outside of blogging as well, and if so, cudos to you.
