A day's end

My week has been good.  What just came to my mind is the fact that next week, we move into December.  I feel like time is flying, and its strange because I cannot figure out where it is going.  Over a year ago I was just at home, living my life, working full time, and now I am here.  A student, a lover, a friend and almost an adult.  It is crazy.
I ended my week and started my weekend today by going to see Breaking Dawn tonight with Chelsey, Kayla and Amanda Russell.  Honestly, I did not actually finish the Twilight series, so I do not consider myself a 'twi-hard' or whatever they are calling it these days.  This movie was actually pretty decent minus all the blood, the whole birth of the baby/demon/vampire child and a little bit of sci-fi in it.  If you are a fan, I would go see it in theaters to get the full effect, but if you can wait, then wait.  After watching Water for Elephants a couple of days ago, I do have to admit that although the Edward Cullen role is a little beneath him, Robert Pattinson is a pretty darn good actor and he is not too hard on the eyes either.  I am still a strong member Team Jacob though.
So, I get to work tomorrow.  Study in the evening and then watch a movie perhaps.  Sunday, I'll go to church and hang out with my bestie Casey.  I will also hopefully study with Jessica and Tony.  And then Monday to Thursday I will be one happy girl with my man by my side.  It will be wonderful.  Theeeeen, I'll study study study for exams, write those and get 4 wisdom teeth out.
I think my life is amazing.

baby it's cold outside

We are having our first pretty snow fall as I type this to you.  I saw pretty because it has snowed a couple of times this month already, but that snow did not stay and it was the kind of snow when you look out your window and you are disgusted by it.  This snow is pretty.  It is starting to cover the ground and I am starting to feel more and more ready for Christmas.  As ready as my heart is for Christmas, my head is not.  I have exams to get through first and then my wisdom teeth coming out.  It should all go well though.  Haig is coming over on Monday and staying until Thursday.  Hopefully him being here will be a bit of a mini vacation before exams, a stress relief.  People can take vacations before they write big tests can't they?  I see no harm in that.
Honestly--- if I could go anywhere right now, I would not be able to pick one stop.  Here are a couple places and reasons why.

Calgary/Lethbridge- I am missing my best friend.  I love her, and we both know we are having troubles getting to talk to each other everyday but I still miss her to death.

Somewhere down South- In order for me to do this though, I would want to go with my husband.  And seeing as I am not married yet, this will not be happening.  But I have never been anywhere down south before and I would love a tan right now.

Australia- On my bucket list, I have a goal to live in Australia for 3 months.  I am not completely sure why.  Perhaps because they live a pretty similar life style to Canadians, they speak English and I am sure there would be a lot of new things to learn.

Paris-  When I went to Paris in Grade 12, the one thing that I myself and I know Casey has said it as well, is that I regret not wearing cute clothes.  Of course we were traveling so much and it was March so it was fairly cold, but we walked around the streets of Paris in Yoga Pants and Rain Jackets.  If I could go back and do it again, I would have taken a whole different wardrobe on that trip.

For now though, I am here.  At home in my bed, in sweat pants, a hoodi,e and fuzzy socks.  And it is where I want to be :)
Where do you want to be?

I just spent my Saturday night watching

-Just like Heaven
-Sweet Home Alabama
 and currently

I am very productive but HEY, I am having a good time.  I also painted my nails--- toes are called majestic night (dark purple) and fingers are called french lingerie (light pink).  Haig moved over to night shift last week so I have no one to text after 9:30.  Exams are in a few weeks and I am looking forward to be finished 1st semester! Woo

I know it seems vain to be thinking of me right now and what I want for Christmas, but we will allow it since all I am doing right now is stuff for other people..

writing a paper for a professor/course
cleaning for the family and my sister
planning things for groups and friends

So I decided on a little writer's block from my paper, that I would make my Christmas wishlist!  Although some of thing things I will be buying myself to treat myself before and after Christmas, it might be nice to see some of these things under the Christmas tree on Christmas morning :)

a. Grey converse
b. Legacy Choose the Right Ring
c. Light purple Lulu Scuba Hoodie
d. Duvet---I really need one, anyone have good suggestions?
e. Floral tights---Hi Casey :)
f. New TV--- Hi Mom and Dad :) :)
g. New Jeans---except I have to buy these, hardly anyone can buy me clothes, I am so picky.
h. Lulu Astro Pants---You know how I said I would be treating myself before Christmas?  Well, these will be my treat for being such a champ during my Wisdom Teeth Recovery!  December 15th baby..... EEK, one month away!
i. Cozy looking sweater from Garage
j. Aldo boots---to be bought soon from being such a champ during Friends and Family sale this past weekend!

A Boring post

Life has been a little boring...
Can't even remember the last time I wrote, can't remember who I am writing this to or why I am even writing it anymore but whateverrss.

So, this week.. I have my major global issues paper due on Friday.  Right now I am feeling pretty confident about the work I have done, but as me again on Thursday night and that might be different.

School is really winding down and I am almost finished my first semester.  Such a happy girl to have gotten this far :)

Christmas is on my mind.  And it is mostly Katherine's fault for posting her excitedness for Christmas on her blog today.  I miss that lady.  She and her husband are having the greatest time of their lives in Europe and I am so very happy for them.  But urghh, now Kat got so excited for Christmas!  I need to get through the rest of school first. 

After the awesomeness of the holidays are over and I go back to school, the next couple of things on my mind will be Haig leaving on his mission (his papers are not in quite yet, but he will hopefully leave early next spring) and then the trip I am planning on taking.  I am planning on going out to Calgary, Lethbridge, Idaho and Utah.  Amanda will be my sidekick and we are hoping to have a great time.  Getting a little excited for that already too!  I have decided that since I took my trip to Ontario in May, I want to take one big trip a year.  So that will be it for next year.

For the rest of the day, I will do some school work...

Tomorrow, I am spending the day with my momma.  We will probably do some Christmas shopping. :)

Til next time,

Oh this is gonna be a good life

A good life, a good good life.

Once, I finish the next global issues paper I have due.  Then I need to get through a couple more small assignments and then finals and I am free until January!  It is so close and it is giving me so much hope that if I can just keep pushing little by little, I will get there :)

This week has been pretty stressful, but it is all good since today was my last day of school for the week.  Tomorrow is a student development day and Friday is Remembrance day.  On Friday I think I will be going to Moncton to visit with my sweet Grandmother.  But before Friday, I will be most likely going out tonight with some friends, working all day tomorrow and then hanging out with the YSA tomorrow night!  So as you can see I have a pretty busy weekend planned.  I have to find some time in there to put 1500 more words in my Global Issues paper by next Friday.  I can do it!  Or at least I hope I can....

So, the other thing that is making this a good life is church.  Through writing this paper, which I have picked my topic on religion, I have noticed how different I am because I am a religious person.  But I would not change my beliefs for the world, and with that said, I am seriously considering serving a mission for my church.  It is such an on and off decision for me, but right now I am on an 'on' about going on a mission.  So help me stay on this 'on' attitude about serving!  It would be an amazing experience although I would be putting a lot of things on hold for it, it would be well worth it.

Anyways, those who are still reading, send me a message or leave a comment or something sometime to let me know that you are still here and enjoying this :)
