Short & Sweet: Catching Up
Hey Bloggy Friends! I hope everyone is ready to hit this new week with momentous speed and excitement! I've made a decision that in order to successfully accomplish everything I need to in school I need to start buckling myself down harder and getting into gear. This means that I'm going to have to start weeding out a few extra-curricular activities that I currently enjoy - such as television and weekends.
There is just too much for me to focus on to allow myself to continuously be distracted by television shows like Big Brother, and I especially need to motivate myself to do more school work on the weekends. Oh, Bloggy Friends, it's a difficult process but one that I find to be imperative if I want to finish up my first semester at Temple with a good GPA.
Sorry I've been harping on and on about school lately, it's just the biggest thing happening in my life right now. I haven't found my transition quite as easy as I thought it would be. After taking a semester off and traveling about like a nomad, I figured I would be all ready to get back into the school groove - but it just ain't that easy. I've spoiled myself to a certain degree, but I'm breaking myself down now!
This was quite an eventful weekend for us. My friend Nicole flew into town from San Francisco on Thursday, so we have been busy showing her around and having a great time ever since. Nicole is seriously one of the most genuinely sweet people I have ever met in my life. She doesn't have a bad bone in her body - for reals. It was like a breath of fresh air to have her stay with us over the weekend. She flew out this morning around 6:30. It was sad to wake up and not have her there this morning - but I guess life moves on and I know she'll be back to visit one day very soon. Stay tuned for a video of all the weekends events!
Well, I'll keep this short and sign off for now. I hope you guys are having a great day. I am chilling at school right now waiting for my next class. Speaking of school - why am I sitting in this library typing? It's President's Day, we should be off! It would have been so awesome to have had the day off after hosting my friend Nicole all weekend. A nice relaxing day to catch up would have been pretty. Oh well, though. I hope whatever institution you are working for has allowed you to have the day off today. I guess Temple just doesn't care about the Presidents! I'm more partial to the First Ladies, myself.
Have a good one, Bloggy Friends.
Love ya much!
