Project 365: Day 53- January 22nd

You should dream what you want to dream, go where you want to go, be what you want to be, because you only have one life to live and one chance to do all the things you dream of and want to do...
Day 53 of Project 365 began at 5:00AM. Yes, that is right... my eyes saw 5:00AM. haha! I have a little thing for this man named Ethan and since he gets up oh so early for work, I decided to get up this morning and make him a nice, hot breakfast! What did I cook you might be asking? 4 slices of french toast with cinnamon, powdered sugar, blueberries, and syrup... and of course, his favorite juice: Welch's Apple, Pineapple, and Orange! I felt like a regular ol' Susie Home Maker, haha! :) I LOVED it. He also got a packed lunch that consisted of a big bowl of homemade potato soup, crackers, yogurt, and fruit punch. I might have been tired, but I just love seeing the smile on his face! I have a great boyfriend and he absolutely deserves it! :) Then, I had to take a shot of the hairdo, hah…

Project 365: Day 52- January 21st

Hair style is the final tip-off whether or not a woman really knows herself. ~Hubert de Givenchy, Vogue, July 1985

On day 52 of Project 365, I got my hair cut! It was definitely time! My last hair cut was in June, 2009... so I was beyond ready.. and most importantly I was ready for a change! So, I asked the hair stylist if she could cut about 2" off and give me some bangs! I will definitely say that I was nervous... I had no idea what bangs would look like with my facial structure.. but I took the risk.. and here we are haha! I feel older with this hair style... I'm not really sure why, haha, but I have to say thanks to Jessica Simpson because it was one of her old school hair styles that I found on the internet that made me want to take the risk. (And this picture would be the pouty, glasses face haha!)

The rest of the night was spent with the boyfriend. I hadn't seen him since I left his house Monday morning, so I was SUPER excited to see his handsome face! We spent the…

Project 365: Day 51- January 20th

Seeing much, suffering much, and studying much are the three pillars of learning. - Benjamin Disraeli

For the first part of my day, I spent it engrossed in learning theories! I have a huge paper due Monday, so it was study time for this chick! I have to pick 1 learning theory and study and research it and write about it. I think it's going to be interesting! For those other nerds out there interested in this sort of thing (haha) I'm writing about the Theory of Multiple Intelligences. There is so many interesting things about it, I don't even know where to begin... but I will definitely start the writing process tomorrow. Wish me luck :) Here's a cute little picture of my work area.. and of course, my trusty I-pod touch! It's got all my tunes on it that get me by!

Then, I decided to start planning out my next item on my "bucket list"... reading the entire Bible.. all the way through! As some of you might be shocked to know, I haven't ever done that. O…

Project 365: Day 50- January 19th

“If you tell folks you're a college student, folks are so impressed. You can be a student in anything and not have to know anything. Just say toxicology or marine biokinesis, and the person you're talking to will change the subject to himself. If this doesn't work, mention the neural synapses of embryonic pigeons.”- Chuck Palahniuk

Today, I started my day off with Education 620: Meeting Individual Needs With Technology. I am one of those weirdo dorks that absolutely LOVES school. And I'm so excited to have a paper due Monday.. no, there is no hidden sarcasm there. That is all truth. I just love being a student, I love learning, and I love writing; thus, papers fit me like a glove. I'm sure I'll update you as the weeks progress... and I'll probably be dreading papers by March, but we'll see, haha!
And when I went to check the mail today, I had a card in there from one of my friends Kat! Thank you Kat for the sweet card. You will never know how much that m…

Project 365: Day 49- January 18th

I don't believe in failure, because simply by saying you have failed, you've admitted you attempted. And anyone who attempts is not a failure. Those who truly fail in my eyes are the ones who never try at all. The ones who sit on the couch and whine and moan and wait for the world to change for them. - Sarah Dessen

For those of you that don't know, I made a "Bucket List." I was extremely inspired the other night (after listening to "Live Like You Were Dying" 45.2342 times hehe) and laid in my bed thinking of what would happen if someone told me I only had "x" amount of time left to live. What would I regret? What would I wish I would have done? What would I pray to God to give me the strength to do? So, I took a few hours and wrote down 25 things.. and I am proud to say that I crossed two of the things on my list off last night. Now, I'm opening up a little about my life right now for those of you that read this.. and I will admit that I&…

Project 365: Day 48- January 17th

"All happiness depends on a leisurely breakfast." - John Gunther

And that's what we did this morning! My mom is amazing and she woke us all up to blueberry pancakes, sausage, eggs, and toast! And my favorite juice! It was absolutely wonderful! Corey and Marie spent the weekend, so it was a huge family event :) You can't really see Brad, but he's in there too haha! These are the moments I live for... when the hustle and bustle of life just dies down for a few hours and you really get to enjoy the time you have with those that mean the most to you. It's been a family filled weekend and I've loved every second of it.

The rest of the day was spent watching "Monster Quest" on the History Channel with the entire fam. Then we said our goodbyes to Corey and Marie. I miss them already! Brad decided to wear my cute little shoes to tell them bye in haha. I told them they really brought out the hair in his legs..

And then-- I was off to spend the night…
