Dear Blog,
So sorry I haven't written in (on) you diligently this past week or so. I have been at odds with what to write and, well, simply too busy. I finished up one of my education classes, which I am super thrilled about because it was majorly time consuming. I have one left for the quarter and that will be done in two weeks! Woo! I'm loving the observation I'm doing in the kindergarten classroom. The little ones are so adorable and it's really touching to see them begin to trust me and see me as an adult in charge! I'm becoming more and more comfortable and excited about being a teacher and I really hope it works out! I should start subbing soon, just so I can get more experience and moola, yet the prospect of it makes me extremely nervous. I should just jump in and do it; get over my silly fright. I passed my cbest and cset all on the first try, so I'm ready!

Anywho, on to even more exciting things... MY Birthday! 15 more days and I will be 24 and old! I can't wait. It's so funny how I still get bubbly and excited for my birthday. I hope that enthusiasm never goes away. I don't want to be one of those people who don't celebrate and ignore the day because they hate aging. I WILL age gracefully. And if not gracefully, well, then I'll just enjoy myself anyway. I need to create my wish list!

1. A great digital camera
2. Some girly bubble bath stuffs
3. Clothes, always, but preferably from the following stores: Banana Republic, Nordstrom's, and urrr well anywhere else I can find great things. I need more "professional, teacher-y" outfits. Hopefully some that I enjoy enough to wear in real life.
4. I've hit a bump. I can't think of more! I'm sure I will as soon as I post, so I will wait until then to follow up!

Hooray for turning 24! (Why does it sound younger than 23 to me?)

P.S. Most wonderfully of all, Adam is taking me to Disneyland! Yaaaay!

So we've decided to do the wedding next year because 1) I want to have lots of time to do the cutesy diy projects that go hand in hand with weddings, 2) it's been hell trying to find a venue with availability in August or September, and 3) because I always wanted to get married in 2008 and this would be my funny little way of learning not to be so uptight and just go with the flow. You'd have to be in my head for that to make sense. But we really wanted to make sure that our guests would be able to come since like 75 percent are out of towners. I like the sound of May 30. Most of all I just feel a huge sense of relief that I don't have to scramble to get things done within the next six months and I can just breathe for a while. Ahhh but getting married this year would help us with our taxes. I hate being so indecisive. Pff to practicality I say.

Anyway, I really want to travel more. It seems we so rarely get a chance to and I would like to see more of the world before it's gone (or I am). Unfortunately neither Adam nor I are traveling types - we tend to get homesick easily. And I am a terribly picky eater. Oh and I hate to pack. See, I'm already talking myself out of this traveling business... Note to self: Procrastination and laziness aren't the most admirable of traits.

I'm Blogging!

Hurray for me getting on the blog bandwagon, only about 2 years after everyone else! Anywho, I'm quite excited to share my thoughts and experiences to anyone who has creepily accessed my page.
