Not Much to Blog About

That's what my life has been. I haven't had a lot of incredible events that are worth blogging about... Seems like life is getting BORING! But not really! I guess just like everyone else's, it's just plain BUSY.

I've been studying like crazy to get decent grades at school. I'm on my second-to-last semester at BYU-Idaho in the Business Management Program. I was supposed to graduate this December, but I forgot that I had to take a Capstone class, therefore I didn't add it. By the time I found out about that, I was already taking 15 credits so I thought it would be better if I just took it in the Winter Semester and if I devoted myself to it completely. So, contrary to what I wanted, I still get to spend another winter in Rexburg.

I'm excited for my graduation though. It will be good to finally get done with school, at least for a while. I did waste a lot of my time, and now I'm paying for my poor choices when I was younger. I was supposed to be done long ago, but I did slack, and here I am. However, I'm grateful for the path my life took. Maybe I wouldn't have come to BYU-Idaho. My dad told me that if I had remained in Brazil, I would be getting a Master's Degree in London. He never told me that!!! Oh, well. Again, I guess that was the path I was supposed to take :) And I am HAPPY.

On the side, I have been working at the University Bookstore as a Graphic Designer (LOL). I really don't have that much talent, but it is certainly fun to use a little of my creativity to develop some fun ads for the store. I work there an average of 20 hours a week.

I'm also doing some extra stuff... I've been on Acutane for the past couple of months so I have to get my blood drawn every month. Tomorrow morning is the day I get to do it again. I'm also doing meditation with a small group at school because stress has been really hard to manage. It's life, right? And I've been trying to hit the gym every day. I've seen some good results, so I'm excited about that.

The only downside to such a busy life is the fact that I always seem to feel tired. Today I planned on a one-hour nap which turned out to be a 4 hour nap. I wasn't happy about it. But I guess my body was begging me to slow down...

Life with roommates is good, except that only 50% of us actually abide with the Chore Chart. Yes, we have weekly assignments for everyone, but the other half doesn't seem to care about what needs to be done, and that REALLY ticks me off. Even though I am still so busy I find time to do my chores. What about the ones who have a TON of time and yet don't do anything? I just think it's UNFAIR. But I have to deal with it. I've been trying to talk to them, and hopefully things will get better... Otherwise they will see the "B" that lives inside of me :)

I've been trying to go to the Temple at least once a week and have been successful so far. It's been 2 weeks. I noticed that I'm having a better attitude towards all the challenges I have to face during the week, so I recommend it!

I'm hoping to be in Utah this next weekend for Halloween :) It should be fun. But I'm not planning to dress up unless there's a party for me to go, or if my costume can be picked out at D.I. (Designer's International). So we'll see.

But now I better get going. Barbara might be waiting for me so we can gossip and relax a little bit before the weekend is over (how come it goes by so fast?) - Go figure.

If someone still comes here, hope you have a nice week :)
