The beginning of the end

image via google
Tomorrow marks the beginning of the end
I start my last semester of my undergraduate career
I have conflicted feelings
I am out of my mind excited to be done with school
don't get me wrong, I like school and learning new things
but I hate spending my
Friday nights, Saturday nights, Sunday nights and weekday nights
doing homework
and school stresses me out
I also have mixed feelings about graduating because I am not in love with my major
in fact I want to change it again
but I can't change my major for a 4th time
that's a bit ridiculous
but I have this feeling that I can't do anything with my liberal studies degree
besides teaching and I don't even know if I want to do that
I just feel that once graduation comes I will have a
"now what" feeling
After years of going to school
what am I gonna do when I am done
But before I can graduate
I have to get through this coming semester
It is gonna be a doozsy
I am taking 6 classes=18 units
I want to cry when I think about how stressed I will be
I have already been having nightmares about this semester
Seriously, I haven't been sleeping well
I have had nightmares that I fail a class
or forget about a class and not show up
or that I come to class and find out I am a 2 weeks behind in the semester
I guess I am a little scared for this semester
I know I wont fail any of my classes
but I do know all of my free time will be devoted to school again
Oh well, come May 20th I will be done!
Wish me luck!

I married a Smarty Pants

Last week we found out that Nathan passed the
Professional Engineers Exam (The PE)
He passed it on his first try too
It has a 38% pass rate
Many only pass certain sections on their first try
but not my smarty pants husband
I am so proud of him
he studied so much
so what does this mean?
Nathan gets a super cool stamp with his name and license number on it
and he can approve plans to build everything...
except hospitals and schools
(he has to wait 4 years to take and pass the SE Exam to build those)
I am so happy and proud of my hubby
He is amazing
I love him!

Mexico for New Years

For New Years
Josh and Chelsea invited us to Mexico
We stayed at a sweet house that Chelsea's uncle owns
It was a nice and relaxing trip
We ate some yummy food at the nearby village
Played with fireworks
We had a Roman Candle fight that was out of control
Imagine big balls of fire being shot at your face
We slept in and were kind of vacation
Overall, it was a great trip
Thanks for inviting us Josh and Chelsea!

We tried to take a jumping didn't happen

The top level is the beautiful house we stayed at

Pretty Sunsets

I told Nathan I want to retire here


Chelsea and I were a little cold

Roman Candle fight!

It was scary!

A Yummy breakfast

All four of us

A statue of Christ
(kinda like the famous one in Brazil)

The line to cross the boarder
The car in front of us cut in line
I was mad at them

We waited 2 hours to cross the border
But we had a great time!

Why I haven't bloged or even been on the computer

The past few days
I have rarely been on the computer
and yet I have so much to blog about
I have been engrossed in The Hunger Games Series
I had hear about the books awhile ago
but with school I forgot about them
Now everyone in Nathan's family is talking about it
my brother read it too
and it is the selection for January's book club
I am finally not busy with school so I can go!
Anyways...I checked out The Hunger Games from the library last Tuesday

finished it on Thursday
I started Catching Fire on Friday

finished it on Sunday

Started Mockingjay on Monday and finished it today
lets just say I am glad that I have finished them so I can do house work again
for the past few days all of my free time has been spent reading
I fully recommend this series to anyone
that is if you are not squeamish
If you have read the book what do you think about them making a movie of it?
