Dinner with Friends

So around 2:30 P.M. yesterday I got a text from Eliza asking me if I was hungry... of course I responded yes!  She told me she wanted to experiment and that I should come on over. So 20 minutes later (I was still in my pjs at that time so I decided to change) I was at her doorstep to see what we would be making.

We started off with some breakfast.  And let me tell you people, this was one of the best things I have ever eaten.  Now I don't even like eggs that much, but I LOVED this.  We made our version of breakfast croissants.  We mixed together scrambled eggs, bacon, onion, tomato, and cream cheese.  And then rolled all of that up in a croissant.  Baked it in the oven until golden brown and then we ate them.  Seriously amazing!
This is what it looked like in the end! 

After we finished eating, and Eliza added some recipes to her book, we started planning dinner.  Now I did not think we could do any better than what we made for "breakfast", but man we really out did ourselves with dinner!!!

We decided to make Lasagna Soup, Parmesan Pull Apart Bread, and Oreo Cheesecake cupcakes!! After going to the store we got started cooking and lets just say in the kitchen we make a pretty good team!! And then when you put Ashlee on desserts....that girl does a pretty awesome job!

This is Who I Am

I am a sensitive person.  I am sensitive person and I can't help that. I am a sensitive person and you can't say mean things to me and expect me not to react.  You just can't. I work hard at hiding my pain.  And when I can't do that, I get angry. I'm sorry I'm sensitive, but you can't be mean to me.  You can't. I won't let you.

Starbuck's Brings Me Inspriration

My amazing roommate brought me some Starbucks last night and this is what I found on my cup. "Let's rediscover why we're best friends."  I seriously think Starbucks is in my head or something.  For a couple people in my life we are having to rediscover a little bit why we're best friends.  And I have to say most of the time it is kinda fun :)))

Can Someone Tell Me When I Will Use This Again?

Statistics. When will I use this again? Someone please tell me! I just don't imagine that I will ever have to teach this to my elementary school kiddos.  I don't even understand it half the time, so I don't think they will either.  This is the one class I am taking right now that I really don't know why I am taking it.  But I sit there with Ash and drink my coffee and eat my cereal...and every now and the take some notes. We have a test this Friday and everything you see here plus more I have to learn... lets get to memorizing people!!

Frustrations of the College Student

This week has been filled with frustrations of all kinds.  This is the first semester that when I went to go plan my schedule for next semester I got super scared and super stressed.  You see I am a double major in Child Development and Psychology.  And I am also a Junior.  And this means that I only have 3 more semesters left of my undergraduate career!!!!  This is an OMG moment people!!!  I have reached the point of no return it seems. When I went to go pick my classes it seemed that I had either already taken all of the classes offered, or the ones I needed were not offered for this semester.  Seriously I was stressed.

I also have a slight problem with refusing to take less than 16 hours.  Oh and I hate elective courses unless they pertain to one of my two majors.  When I told my advisor this, he laughed (I think he finally caught on that I am a high achieving super nerd).  At the time I could only find 14 hours of classes to take, and could not for the life of me find another class to take that would not interfere with one I needed.  My advisor tried to tell me it was ok to take only 14 hours, but I refused and made him find me another class to take.  Fortunately for me, he will be teaching a Psych class that I had wanted to take but on Friday's I was going to have to show up late.  He said if I really wanted to take it I could and he would allow me to show up late.  THANK YOU JESUS!!!!  I felt like life was getting back to normal now.

So that was only the beginning of my frustrations this week.  Oh and by the way, it's only Tuesday.  But they continued.  Between having a professor rip apart my lesson plans time and time again, and then having to go and observe a 5th grade classroom that I really do not like at all,  I am so frustrated with teaching.  Loves it a lot, but it is seriously getting on my nerves majorly.  I am hoping this will soon pass, considering this is going to be my career.

Hopefully this week will only continue to get better.  I am waiting on the days until I can go home... and if my sister's count down is correct then it will only be 20 more days!!!
