Been away to long!

Hey everyone!!! Just a quick update on me. I have been so busy lately and haven't had much time for anything. I haven't posted in forever and I haven't had much time to read other blogs, which I really enjoy.

I have recently finished my summer semester at GTCC with a 4.0 average......YEAHHHHHHHHH!!!

I still have a 3 1/2 weeks to go in my CNA class. This week I am on vacation from the class, since our instructor is at the beach and I am being totally lazy, but it will be back to class Saturday morning at 8 am. That is the payback we get for being off during the week and then back to regular classes Monday night at 6pm.

We start our clinical rounds soon and that should be a lot of fun.

I got something a few weeks ago that I have always wanted...... An antique rocking chair. I love it! I will take a picture tomorrow to share with you all.

Also, this maybe a lot to ask, but I have been going through some really hard times (personal issues) so if you all could remember me in your prayers that would be wonderful.

I'll be back soon!!!

A cute funny for you all.....


I went to the doctor for my yearly physical.

The nurse starts with certain basics.

How much do you weigh?' she asks. "135" I say.'
The nurse put me on the scale. It turns out my weight is 180.

The nurse asks, 'Your height?' "5 foot 6 inches" I say.
The nurse checked and saw that I only measure 5' 3".

She then took my blood pressure and told me it is very high. "Of course it's high!" I screamed. "When I came in here I was tall and slender! Now I'm short and fat!"

She put me on Prozac. What a bitch.

Halloween! Help me if you can

Halloween is one of my most favorite times of the year! Everyone that knows me, knows that I am in school full-time right and I am in the process of writing an essay about Halloween.

I have to have 10 pages to turn in on the 18th and I have done tons of research and am always looking for other interesting facts and even some fiction on this subject. So far I have 6 pages ready on the history of Halloween and I am asking if you have any fun facts or myths about Halloween I would love to hear about them.

You can either leave a comment or email with them and all will help. Thanks in advance for any and all help!

6. I use to hate naps, but now they are one of the most important things in my life

7. That I can still make A's and 100's in school

8. I really am not a morning person

9. I don't have any free time what-so-ever

My friend Shari told me that her friend Sherie ask her about this last weekend and I thought it was so funny, but so sad that the darn thing is still up.

I did it again!

I went to re-take my Compass test for English and Reading today at GTCC and I passed out of all of those, just as I did the math a few weeks back.

I am so excited!!! I go register for all my new classes on Monday and this is going to save me so much money in fee's and books and I love saving money.

Now I have a question that I hope someone will answer for me. This is reference to posting comments on other people's blogs.

Recently I posted a comment on a blog and when I went back the next day to see what anyone else had posted my comment was gone? I have to admit my feeling were and are hurt due to this. What or why would someone remove your comment? It was a very Plain Jane comment.
