So next time I have to do a translation project, I am not going to wait until the night before to do it. I just spent 3 hours translating 2 pages of Madame Bovary. I'm sure it is a really good book, and I definitely want to read it now, but I really did not like it tonight.

Only two weeks left of classes! Who's excited? I know I am.

Went back to good old Cousino High School on friday night to see a play with Pamela and Chrissy. We got in trouble for walking around and looking to see what had changed. It was funny. The pool area still smelled the same and it made me miss swimming there. Oh well.

I need to go to bed now.

Spring is here! Yet there was a blizzard while I was driving to school this morning. I just don't understand Michigan weather. Oh well, I don't think anyone does.

Three more weeks left of school. I'm probably taking a spring class, I still have to sign up for it though. I procrastinate way too much.

Went to the Pistons game with Pamela on Monday. We got to go on the court after the game and shoot a free throw. I made mine! It was very exciting.

Dyed my hair a few hours ago. It's has a little more red in it than usual, but I think I like it.

I had a lot of fun with Pamela and Chrissy while my dad was in Vegas last week♥ We made alabama slammers.

Time for bed. Bon nuit.

So I definitely haven't updated in awhile.

Let's see... This semester is kicking my ass so far. I'm getting ok grades, I just am ALWAYS doing homework. What makes me a dork is that I actually don't mind doing it. gasp. I know, what's wrong with me? French translation is fun.

So Kendell and I leave for France in less than 3 weeks. I'm super excited. I haven't had any panic attacks about packing etc. yet, but just wait, they will come. I still have a lot to do before we leave. Ahhh, I can't wait. I glad we're going for london for two nights too. I miss that city. It was a lot of fun last time I was there. I just love the culture and the people. Big cities excite me.

I quit my job at Baker's Square. Finally. It was just too much stress that I didn't need considering my work load this semester. It's not like it was my only job. I'm still working at the church. It's going on 7 1/2 years that I've been working there. Crazy.

Did my taxes today. Have to pay the great state of Michigan 4 whole dollars. Joy.

Well, I'm off to bed.

1/4/06 02:28 pm - I don't like school...

My break was too busy, I don't want to have to go back to school next week...

Happy Thanksgiving!

Hmm, I never have time to update any of my on-line journals anymore...not that I've had this one for that long...

Anyways.

(+)Retreat last weekend was awesome. I definitely needed a vacation.

(+)Only a few weeks left of school

(-)I have to work all this weekend. I'm gonna start looking for another job. Don't want to be a waitress anymore.

(+)Dinner tonight was good.

(-)I have a research paper due in less than two weeks that I haven't even started yet.

Can't think of anything else that had been happening in my life lately, so I guess I still came out on the positive side.

I'm off to watch some tv and relax.
