I was gonna try harder...

I was gonna try harder to update more frequently, as there are so many things happening in my life right now that I could (a) throw up or (b) pass out. However, the Busy has interfered with the Blog, so I'ma try to catch everybody (probably just Alexa and Jalee) up.

I started the medical stuff for my mission papers, but things have taken a turn for the mysterious. More on that when I know what's going on.

School is driving me crazy. I am so overwhelmed. Fortunately, all of my professors are gems, and the majority of them have decided that extra credit would be appropriate for all of their classes right now, so I don't even have to humble myself to ask.

I started working at the writing center on campus, and I love it. Only one of my coworkers irritates me, and I feel great about helping people to communicate themselves more effectively. That's definitely a part-time job I could handle in graduate school.

Last night, Bryant, Spencer and I hung out and made delicious cookies. (Karli joined us for a bit, which I was glad about -- I like her a lot, she's super cool.) It was, to be honest, the most fun I've had in weeks, if not months. I had a delightful time, and I think the same could be said by Bryant and Spence.

Grannette, Uncle Van, Aunt Marsha, and Michael (Van and Marsha's youngest son) are in town for the weekend because Michael has a football game tomorrow night. I haven't seen 3/4 of that group in ages, so I'm glad they're here.

Tonight, Mom, Dad, Spencer, Grannette, Van, Michael and I went to see Hanna, which was SUCH AN AMAZING FILM. I am in love with everything about it -- the casting, the soundtrack,the cinematography, the screenplay -- oh my word. If that doesn't get an Oscar nomination of some kind, I will have serious words with the Academy of Motion Picture Sciences, because that film blew my freakin' mind.

Anyway, it's pretty late, and I'm gonna be gallivanting with my grandma tomorrow, so I'm gonna call it a night. :)
