Stress

With the last 5 days of school closing in on me, the last thing I want to do is homework. However, my teachers think differently. With so much going on, it's hard to really care about these few days left, but I will succeed. However, my mind keeps going 24/7. It'll be worth it. I'm finally graduating!

A Wedding





This weekend I was a bridesmaid in my cousin's wedding. It was a bunch of fun, with a lot of dancing and eating.  It was a quick wedding, even though they were married in the Catholic Church. This was because there wasn't a mass (thank goodness). In the end everyone had a ton of fun. But now it's back to the swing of things.

As It Comes to a Close

So, next week I have a total of 7 tests/quizzes. Now let's understand this, a quiz at my school can be up to 50 points. AKA a small test. It's crazy. I only have 5 CORE classes, but in those 5 classes I have 7 tests. I'm not looking forward to next week at all. Crazy amounts of test means crazy amounts of homework. :(

Dormmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!

So I got my dorm room the other day. You may not understand how big of a deal this is, but it's huge! I ended up getting the dorm that I wanted. It's slightly bigger than most of the other dorms on campus. It's got a sink in the room and it has a suite bathroom. This means that instead of sharing a bathroom with an entire floor of girls, I only have to share with 4 girls! I'm so excited. I can't wait to buy everything and start getting everything together! (: It's my first step on the way to "the real world"!

Dorm Shopping

I know I haven't graduated from high school yet, but I'm so excited about dorm shopping. SO Excited! I can't wait to be able to go and choose out everything that I want for my new room! My friend and I are dorming together and we're both over the moon. We already have a tv/dvd player, mini-fridge and microwave (my mom had pretty much all these things in the attic!). Therefore the only thing we really need is, well, everything else. My roommate is doing zebra themed things, but I'm going more along the lines of bright colors. However, being in architecture, it's not like I'll be in my room all that much. I'm excited to see what a new school brings! It'll be interesting being in the "real world" but I couldn't be more excited.

White, White oh and some more White



I've found a few white dresses online that I like, however I have to try everything on. Why? It might be because I'm so tall that I have to be very careful about what I buy. Some things that are meant to look a little short, look super short on me. So, here are the few I'm looking at.

Prom

This weekend, I'd have to say that prom was generally successful. I had a great time just dancing with friends and getting ready. However, I have to admit I'm so ready to graduate. I'm over being in school and having to concentrate and tests. BUT I will graduate. This week looks crazy to begin with: work, school, dance, surprise for a friend, and a wedding. I'm going to be exhausted by this time is over, but it's all good. I still need to find an all white dress for graduation...it wouldn't be like me not to procrastinate though. (:

Sweet Home Cooking

In my adult responsibility class, our assignment for the next few weeks is to create a dish in a specific type of food that has been given to us. My partner and I have chosen Cajun cooking and plan on doing something like Crawfish Etouffee. I'm excited. I love Crawfish Etouffee. 



Ingredients:1/2 cup roux *
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1/2 cup finely chopped bell pepper
1 small can diced rotel tomatoes
2 cups water
3 lbs of cleaned crawfish meat
1 tsp. each salt, pepper, garlic powder
dash of cayenne
1 cup finely chopped green onion tops for garnish
Directions:Make a roux by browning "slowly" in a small iron skillet ...1/4 cup oil and 1/4 cup flour until it is dark brown. Do not rush this. Add chopped white onions and bell pepper. Next add rotel tomatoes, water and seasoning. Stir very well over medium high heat. Cover and reduce to low and simmer for about 15 minutes. Add crawfish tail meat.... and raise heat to a slow boil. Cook for about 5 to 10 minutes. Take off the heat , Cover and let set while you cook a pot of white rice. (About 3 cups of raw rice, 6 cups water, salt, and butter )Serve over the 'cooked' white rice and garnish each bowl with green onion.

My Little Rant

So here's my little rant for tonight: Dumb questions from a Bakery.

1. How do you stay so skinny working in a Bakery? (Here's a little hint, just because I work there, doesn't mean I gouge myself on delicious treats. Also, I dance. I'm active)

2. What time do you close? 8? AT NIGHT? (No, we work from 7am-8am. Yes, 8 at night)

3. Well what do you suggest? (I'm not allowed to give you my suggestions because if you don't like it and blame it on me, then I'll get fired)

4. It's not really a question, but a suggestion. Please, do NOT call and order a cake and tell me your life story. I really don't care. I'm here to take your order and help you out, not listen to why you're having a bad day.

That is all.


PS: we don't make these, but i wish we did

School's Back in Session

School's back in session. Therefor it means that I'm back to my daily ways of procrastination. Over Spring Break I had a crazy busy time. Let's seeeee there was a Deb Ball, Beach Trip with a friend and her family, work at crazy hours in the morning, dinner date with friends and Easter. On top of that I had to do all my homework last night that I procrastinated with. 


Deb Ball: Oh my goodness, what an awesome time that I had. My friend looked gorgeous. It was awesome being able to see the process of being presented as a D├ębutante. It ended up being about a 3 hour process, with dancing and having fun at the end. 


Spring Break: My friend and her family along with myself all went to Orange Beach for a few days. We ended up having a blast just sleeping on the beach and playing in the hot tub and indoor pool. I ended up not being sunburnt (yay for fair skin) until the car ride home. Yes, that's right, the car ride home. It was a 4 1/2 - 5 hour ride home thanks to some  stops along the way, but we were riding with the windows down just rocking out, SO ready to be home. Well thanks again to my fair skin, I got burnt. BAD. 


After we got home, I had work at 6 am in the morning. Yay for crazy work times due to holidays at the Bakery.  Oh well. We always know how to have fun. 


I don't know about you but I need another break from my break.

Small recap: I've been MIA for the last few days. Why? Saturday was my friends Debutante Ball and Sunday I left with her to go on Spring Break with her family till today! I haven't had much time home, seeing as I went to see the last song, but more on that later (: For now, I'm back to the real world. Time to unpack, check emails, and do other important things. !
