A note before I go offline to enjoy a movie and relaxation. It was another busy weekend at work and a full day of school today. I had a wonderful day though. I started my day knowing I was going to start my full liquid diet again. So far that is the one plan that I can stick to and I see results immediately. I went to all my classes and then had weight training class. It makes me feel so good! Overall I am very motivated to stick to my new schedule for during the week and I feel confident it is a doable schedule. I went to Walgreens after work and checked out The Hulk and got some things I needed. Oh yeah! I almost forgot...I got a Fabulous new haircut!! It makes me look so different and I feel AMAZING!! I also got a great new book I can't wait to read! It is One Fifth Avenue by Candace Bushnell. More later...

This week has been a very fast week. Yesterday I had a Microbiology lab report due and a major test. I am glad those are over now. I was a little tense and stressed over it. I feel as if I did well though. Tuesday I got my hair cut and I love it! It makes me look so stylish! It is about time I updated my look. I also got some new clothes of which I love!! It makes me feel so good to look at myself the way I feel I should look. People treat you differently too when you look and feel good.

It is Tuesday October 21, 2008. It is a beautiful fall day in Pearland, Texas. I feel rested after my busy weekend and Monday. I am fully recovered and ready to be productive. Today my plan is to go to school to study and to take care of my errands. Tonight I am going with C. to life group. I feel very blessed.

On this day in history, Noah Webster was born. It is also my birthday today. I turned 34. It is not a landmark birthday but birthdays are always special to me. If I could have a dream birthday, it would be as follows: I would be in Paris, sitting outside sipping Cafe Au Lait outside of a quaint bistro, people watching and enjoying a fresh croissant with real butter. The sky would be crystal clear blue, the air would be fresh and crisp and there would be plenty of people to watch. I would be sitting there looking very stylish and beautiful, dressed in black and white with glowing skin. French tunes would be coming from inside the bistro. I would be planning my day, trying to decide if I should go shopping or to museums. That is what my dream birthday would include.

I made it to my gym class this afternoon. Even not feeling well I still went. I did a workout and came home. I put as much effort into it as I could. I did not do too bad. It was a little difficult to move but that was after a long workout hiatus caused by Ike. I once again made a determination that I was going to begin getting in shape. At home, I vegged out and slept. It felt wonderful. So my sick day was very restorative and now am ready to begin my birthday tomorrow!

I feel so sick today. Even though tomorrow is my birthday I am taking a sick day from school. Everyone every once in a while needs a sick day. I just want to curl up in my bed, get a book and have the tv on and rest. I just want to drink fluids and get better for my birthday tomorrow.

In a word, that describes this past week! I worked so many crazy hours: days, nights, afternoons...you name it I did it. All in a effort to get plugged into a different shift other than night shift. Nights is hard and then I am in school so I have to find time to study. This past weekend I worked 16 hours Saturday and Sunday. Not bad! I like the idea of working two days and off the rest of the week to study and rest. I put in for it, now let's see if I get it.

One of my favorite friends called me today and we had a great talk. We asked each other for advice and just talked for a long time about everything. We are so much alike it is scary! She is a doll and I learn so much from her. I feel very lucky that I have someone like her in my life. Mushy, gushy stuff LOL.
I have been doing some online shopping for my room re-do soon. I am so excited!!

It was a busy morning for me this morning. I woke up, read my Bible, and had to do some online "chores". I had to work yesterday evening and I got to go home and sleep. That was wonderful. I really am settling in nice to my new job.
I went to school yesterday and took my first two tests. I believe I did well in both of them. I really feel like I did well on my Microbiology test. I pray I did.
That is all for now, I just needed to do a brain dump. More later.

It is Sunday morning. I worked last night and got off this morning and went to the park to walk. It was a beautiful fall morning like I am getting very accustomed to seeing here. I feel so alive. Went and got a smoothie and went home. Got ready for church by listening to Frank Sinatra. I just love his smooth, delightful melodies. It automatically breathes new life deep into my soul.

I am so excited! This morning I got an email from one of my good friends (and secret crush) that he wants to go to a movie with me. WOW! I am stoked. Now I have to plan what I am going to wear and stuff! I am giddy with excitement! It has been a long while since I have been out (even though it is just a movie) seriously, I live too boring a life.

It has been a couple of days since I last posted. I have been working since I got my new job!! Yay!! I have worked 7 days. It is wonderful. It is in my field, nursing and I love it! And it is dependable money! Yay for that too! So now I am working and going to school, this is like my dream life right now. It is a beautiful fall day. The sky is blue and the sun is warm. It is a perfect day. So since I am working again, I thought that I would like to do some shopping again. It is amazing when you go without money the things that you need to replace and get. I thought it would be cute to post some of my favorite things here.
