So it is true. I have a blog evaluation for my Mass Comm class, and I am blogging today. That is a main reason why I am blogging, but also because I have been meaning to do it for like, 2 weeks now. I have been so busy though because.......... 

Tristar, this is Liza?

I am the new receptionist, and the first week was brutal. I didn't know if I was going to make it. But week two was better. I read 2 books in the last 3 days! I am impressed with myself. So the books I have read lately - I have read 3 really good ones, and I am in the middle of another one.  

The Night Circus 
Z for Zachariah

If I was going to describe myself in a book, it would be The Night Circus. It was mysterious and beautiful and magical. So magical.  Divergent and Invergent were kinda post apocalyptic/hunger games status. those are the 2 I read in 3 days. Each took less than 12 hours. I started Z for Zachariah- I borrowed it from motherinlaw Tracy like, months ago... Sorry Tracy. But I'm reading it now! and its good. 
I am so ready for spring. summer. ANYTHING WARMER THAN JANUARYFEBRUARYandMARCH.

Now, I am going to try this new thing called button swap. It might take a minute to set up.... but I am working on that this week. Button Swap is when I put other bloggers buttons on my blog, and the others bloggers hopefully put my button up on their blogs. Swap. get it?

Homemade jam is THE ONLY WAY TO GO. Store bought jam? don't be silly. Cheaper this way too. just buy the strawberries, buy the powder to add in, make sure you have enough sugar, and TADA! Best jam in the world! I grew up with homemade jam. I'm glad I did too, I am positive it had a big contribution to my happy childhood.

Yesterday me and brad went to Amelias dance performance. Our little Sterling Scholar did quite amazing. She has another on April 25th and 26th..  I am mostly writing that to remind myself... see, my phone is dead right now. Long story... but I am using my little brothers old one, but I am lacking my calendar. hence me writing my April 25th and 26th commitment on my blog. If I write something down, no matter where, I can remember it much better.

Shout out to Mother-in-law-Tracy! She got her eyes lasered. Which could mean, lasers put into her eyes and now she is a super hero, OR that she just got her eye corrected..... Hmmmm.......... either way, feel better. <3

slow down

I have high hopes for march... I just need some good weather. 

This week I declared a double major! #soundsmart. I am a communications major, and I will have my bachelors finished by Fall of 2014. But I am also getting an Associates of Applied Science degree in Graphic Design. I haven't even started the program yet, but add 10 classes of art and graphic design, and I'll be finished with that one as well! I feel so good.  I never thought I would choose more school as opposed to finishing and neverlookingback, but this was an easy decision, which makes me even more confident. So add a year or so to my 2014 and I'll be finished and happy.

I am excited for a easy and smooth summer. I have 2 classes, Stress Management, and 2D Design. Both are one step closer to finishing! Although, that is not just my main goal any more. I am excited to start loving school. This semester has been a huge part in that. I have really tried to apply myself and put myself out there. It has made so much of a difference.

I am jobless. Ever since I was 16 I have held a job. I have never had this kind of a break. It is different and exciting, and nervous making all at the same time. I don't even know where to start to find a new job. I really want to find the right one, the job that I will love so much, I will look forward to it every morning. I need that. Every job I have had, I haven't LOVED. I have liked jobs, days, months, hours, but never loved it fully.

I am thinking of this new job as my last job before kids. I don't want to work and have kids, I want to be the momma at home with them. This last job will be the one to get me there. I hope.
