Good times!

I have had a lovely week. My mom has been here and we have had fun. We did some shopping...lots of shopping. I got a fabulous bag at Dillard's that I have been eyeing for 6 months! It finally went on sale! 50% off, not 75%...but it was still a savings. I also got an exciting muted, silver trench coat for NYC! It will look wonderful on 5th Avenue. I also had 2 A&P tests this week. I made a 94 on my lecture test and a 97 on my lab practical. I studied a whole bunch of cat muscles and they WERE NOT on the the test. I am a little ticked, but it is ok. I have a fun Sunday planned. Sunday I am going to go to church, then I am going to the Zilker Park Kite Festival, then I am going to night church, and then I am going to see The Other Boleyn Girl with Erin. I also got into some smaller pants which is awesome!

Well, I am off to go eat at Shady Grove with Jodi and Dani. We are going to enjoy the splendid weather outside.

The weekend...

I have been too busy to write anything down.

Emily - that is hilarious you went to Barry Manilow. I love me some Weekend in New England and I Can't Smile Without You. Dorsey and I have dance moves to the latter.

My mom is coming into town this weekend and some of next week. I am going to shop and chill with Ames. I am so glad my mom has to go to conferences in Austin.

We leave for NYC in 3 weeks!

I have 2 A&P tests next week. I have been trying to study diligently this week so I can hang out with my mom more. I have learned bones, bone specifics, human skeletal muscles, and bone tissue. I only have cat muscles and lecture material to go.

Et Cetera

I have fallen in love with MySpace. I am on all the time. I should have been on years ago.

I made a 104 on my PSYC test Wednesday! I am glad that is over. I have another round of A&P lecture and lab test in a week and a half so I am getting on the ball this weekend. To make matters worse, my mom will be here the week of my next tests. I am thrilled she will be in Austin, but it is bad timing. I am going to try and study all week so I can just review the week of the tests. This Sunday will be bone day. I have to learn most of the bones of the body PLUS there features. That will be an exciting afternoon after church.

I leave for New York in 4 weeks! Of course, I have a PSYC test and a A&P lecture test while I will be in the Big Apple, so I have to make that up when I get back. Ugghh.

Well, that about wraps it up for today. Have a great weekend!

On the road to the Dean's List...

Shock. Disbelief. Taken back. These words describe how I felt when I saw my A&P grades this week posted online. I made a 92 on my lab practical that was extremely hard and I made a 100 on my lecture test. I am sure there was a slight curve on the lecture test because I know I missed 2 questions. Apparently there are 20 amino acids in the human body, not 30. I thought there were 25 so I rounded up. But...I had the highest grade in the class!!! I studied a bunch. 5 nights in a row as a matter of fact. Giving up 2 Superbowl parties paid off! Yeah Hils!

I have one test next week so I will be studying this weekend too. It is for my developmental psyc class so it should not be as hard as A&P. I have no life,...but I know how many amino acids there are in the human body and what hyaline cartilage looks like. :)

Groundhogs Day

Punxsutawney Phil emerged from his home on Gobbler's Knob and predicted six more weeks of winter after seeing his shadow!

I hope everyone has a marvelous Groundhogs Day!

Busy! Busy! Busy!

I haven't had a chance to write since last week! I have been so busy. I have my first round of tests next week so I am staying constantly on the move.

My friend, Erin, and I are joing Hyde Park BC this Sunday. They have 200 active singles. That is 50x as many active singles as in my current church. They are on fire for God and they have events planned all the time. I haven't been this excited about church since the beginning of high school.

I am currently working on a myspace page. By working, I mean I have created a page. It is still blank.

I leave for New York City in 6 weeks!!! Yeah! I bought tickets to go see Mary Poppins. My mom and I are also going to see The Celtic Women at Radio City Music Hall and a string quartet at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. My mom and I are spending a whole day at the Met. We can't wait. I think it our favorite part of New York...but we also love Times Square and Rockefeller Plaza, and well, ok, we love all of New York.
