To my sister:

For those of you that read my sister's blog, you totally know why I am dedicating this video to her.

(I love you Steph!!)

Just a boring update

I am only in my second week of school and I am ready to melt down. I don't know what possessed me to take Physiology and Anatomy together. I think I lost my mind. They are really hard. For example, I took a quiz this week in Physiology and scored a whopping 2 out of 5. Luckily, it was for extra credit only. I can't believe how poorly I did. I don't think it was a good idea to take a trip last weekend to California. At least we had a good time!

Our washing machine is still broken. I don't know when I am going to be able to get to the laundry mat this weekend. I have so much studying to do! Even the thought of it brings me to tears. We are looking to buy a used washer to replace it for now, but are not having much luck. I don't know why people want to hang on to the ones they have. Don't they want better? ;) I also think if someone lists something on Craigslist, they should respond with some kind of answer when emailed.

And to top it all off? I am seriously considering NOT doing nursing. I just don't know right now. It might be the stress playing tricks on me, but it is not a desirable thought right now to be a nurse. I am really leaning towards Biology in general. Even though the classes are really hard, I really enjoy them. I wish I didn't seem so wishy washy.

I hope you all are doing better than I am right now! Tell me something good!

Update: First Day Back to School

It went great and I absolutely love my schedule, right now! By chance, I got into the class I was trying to get into. At the very last moment a spot opened up! I was so relieved. I am now taking the same teacher for Anatomy and Physiology and he supposed to be the absolute best teacher in these subjects. I am hoping he teaches the material together a little bit, but probably not.

In Physiology he said multiple times this class is going to be a "bitch" and don't plan on having a life for the next four months. In Anatomy it was a bit different. We will be coloring a lot and he didn't use the term "bitch" at all when talking about the class.

My 8 am Anatomy lab was canceled yesterday morning which ended up great. When faced with the decision of what to do to kill the next 2 hours I decided to go to the bookstore and buy my books. I am so glad I did. Because I was there so early, there was no line. I was in and out in 20 minutes (and $500 poorer). If I had waited until the afternoon like I almost had to do, I would have been there at least an hour, if not more.

Tonight, I have my Physiology lab which I am nervous about, only because the lecture is going to be so hard. I know this lab will be just as hard.

So, once again, I will miss you all! My head will be buried in books (really big books) for the next 4 months. I promise to come up for air once in a while!

First Day Back to School

Well, today is my first day back to school. Hopefully, all will go well as I am still trying to add a class that has been completely full for a month!

All I can say is Let the craziness begin!

Banana Crisp

I made this recipe up by trying some other things lately. I never would have thought that cooking a banana would be so good. I like raw bananas just fine, but I don't eat them often. Cooked, they are amazing!

banana crisp


Bananas--however many you will eat
1 Cup oats
1 Cup butter
1 Cup brown sugar

1. Pick a baking dish--any size (I have used an 8x8 and a 9x13).
2. preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
3. Mix 1/2 cup cold butter and the sugar until creamy.
4. Add in the oats and mix until combined. Set Aside. (This makes enough for a 9x13 size pan. You can refrigerate the rest for a later batch.)
5. Place the rest of the butter into the baking dish and put into oven until just melted.
6. Take the baking dish out and cut bananas in half length wise.
7. Place the cut bananas into the baking dish cut side down. You want them side by side--slightly squished together.
8. Sprinkle the oat mixture all over the top of the bananas. Cover them good.
9. Bake for about 15 minutes.
10. Serve with some vanilla ice cream or whipped cream. Enjoy!

A little introspection.

Do you know what it feels like to offend somebody and not really know how you did it? I do. And let me tell you: It does not feel good to constantly wonder if you said something you shouldn't have. My mouth tends to say something and later I will think back on a conversation and think "why did I say that?" or wonder "why did I do that?"

About a year ago, I had a friend (a really good friend) quit talking to me. She wasn't mean about it, she just disappeared. It was weird. We had been friends for about 10 years and we had talked often. It was really hard to lose that friend.

I really don't want to lose the current friends I have. I am an extremely social person, at least I used to be. It has been really hard not having the time or energy to spend time with the friends in my life. I want to have parties and have friends over to watch movies or just gabber.

I know it is easy for me to get caught up in school and family, which are important, and forget my wonderful friends. I guess that should be my belated New Year's Resolution: To work on spending time with my friends.

To all my friends: I love you!
