the loot

so this year i got exactly what i wanted, including something that i didn't ask for, but is really cool.
so in review what i got this year...or at least my favorites. :D
the foot massager spa. this is so cool. it has heat, vibration, bubbles, jet, and cool little tools to massage your feet. it's awesome. i love it. and it feels really really cool.

next...the george foreman grill. i am so excited to go home and cook on this tonight. awesome. :) it should be an adventure and give me some good food too. :D

i love this because i can go out and buy my own shoes. whatever ones i want or need at any given time. yep...pretty cool stuff gift cards are. now i just have to go out and use it. :D

my new byu hoodie!!! i have wanted one of these for a long long time. and i am very excited to have one now. mine doesn't quite look like this one, but it's very similair. and is dark blue. and says cougars on the sleeve. it's very warm and soft. and i like it. i can now show off my true colors any where i go. wahoo!

okay so this is really cool too. i got the Cirque du Soleil KA CD. and man...it's really really cool. i love the music on it. its just good!!! and sounds cool. :D

and last but not least is my theraband. i got a new one. it's dark black...darker then this one. which means its hard strength which is good so i can work out my feet more. i also got (but not pictured) a rolling pin, mostly to roll out my sore calves, but if i need to cook with it...so be it. :) i also got some tennis balls which are great to get knots out of a back or legs or whatever. so all in all i got some much needed dance training type stuff, and other items as well. makes me happy. i need to go update my wish list now for my birthday....refer to countdown for how many days. wahoo! ciao!

yep, that's me. free at last. :D Finals ended for me on wednesday. i worked a lot yesterday, and then today i'm working all day long...minus lunch of course. :D

so i get to go home tonight for christmas. i am so excited. i can't believe that christmast is in just 3 days!!! it seems to come faster with finals so close to the actual holiday. i remember last year when it seemed to take AGES for christmas to get here, or when i was a little girl and it would take an eternity. Christmas Eve always seemed SOOOO long!! incredible how things change. :D

so my boss gave me a project to work on while i'm working during the break (i'm just taking a break from my project, you'll see why in a minute)
so we have a professor who is retiring and she has an office full of books. and i mean full of books.
it makes me think of beauty and the beast and the beast's library... that's how many books this professor has. :S anyways, she is going to be taking some with her, leaving some here, and some of her colleauges and students and what not are going to come and get some as well...except she has no idea exactly what she has or how many copies of what she has. so guess what? i get to go through and type up the title and author of EVERY SINGLE BOOK/MAGAZINE/JOURNAL that she has. it's crazy i tell you. it gives me something to do, but man alive it is so tedious. plus i have to stand on the desk/ladder to get to the books. and they're hard to reach! but alas....it's my job. and i get paid to do it. so its all good.

well...i should probably get back to my lovely book project. Merry Christmas!!!!

in the midst of finals

it snows. a lot. i love it. and i wish i could play in it more than i already have. i played in it for like 10 minutes with a friend on sunday evening while walking home from an activity. but the snow makes me happy. even if it is super cold.

i have taken 3 finals. i have 2 more. tomorrow. so today will be spent in studying for said finals, visiting teaching, and relaxing. :D christmas is in 6 days, which is hard to believe. and i am super excited for next semester's classes. hurrah! and for now, that is all. :D

end of semester woes

well y'all. it came. the end of the semester. FINALLY! HURRAH!!! i am so HAPPY! but also...there are woes.

for example, i hurt my ankle a week and a half ago and had to video tape my FINAL for my 3 ballet classes on monday. that wasn't pleasant. I did well enough, but it could have been so much better had my ankle been 100% instead of only 75%. bah. oh well.

another woe: my ridiculous music class required for my major. where i bang on an african drum for hours on end, my hands get dry and alas, i am no better dancer musically. blech.

woe #3: biology. who in the world decided it would be cool to require everyone to take bio 100? i certainly am not the culprit. but here i am taking the stupid class....because i have to. how i hate ge's...

there are many more woes, but that's all i want to complain about...for now. :D overall i am very excited that this semester is over and that i have a new one coming up in which i get to start fresh and can kind of relax. i get to work full time during christmas (promises to pay well, but be extremely boring...lol) and i'll probably post some more during that time. about who knows what. oh i know! i tell y'all how i got closure with the whole boyfriend thing...but that will have to wait for another day. for now, i am going to go and finish my student ratings for my professors and their classes. oh joy. :S ciao.
