The Joys of Going Back to School

Today was my first day back to school.  I took last semester off because I decided to travel in China instead.  It has been awhile since I have been to school, and I think it shows...

My day consisted of:
Waking up at 6:00 AM.  I am not sure if you read that right.... SIX IN THE MORNING!  I don't think I have woken up this early for almost an entire year.  It was still dark outside when I woke up this morning.
Actually getting ready.   While in China, we did not get ready.  It was pointless because of the humidity.  I didn't even have a hair blow dryer with me.  But this morning, I got ready.  I even curled my hair!  While curling my hair, I burnt my neck...and it looked like a hickey... great... I thought to myself, people are going to think that I am considered as "one of those girls," on the first day of school.
I proceeded to step into a puddle on my way to class.  My foot was soaking wet.
When it was time to leave, I couldn't find my car.  I couldn't remember where I had parked.  I proceeded to walk in the parking lot for a good 15 minutes or so.  I called my Dad in the process, and told him that I couldn't find Big Booty (Jesse named my car.)  My Dad proceeded to tell me that things like that shouldn't happen to me, and that I should remember these type of things.  Maybe I am already having problems with my memory.  Thankfully, I found it and I was parked closer to the school than I had thought.

Luckily, my classes went well!  I am taking 17 credits this semester and I am going to be extremely busy!  I have one year left at Salt Lake Community College and then I am off to a "big" school.  I am contemplating where I shall go next...

Utah University
Utah State

Let's just hope that I can make it out alive this semester....

The Help

If you haven't already... I definitely reccommend that you read this book and then go see the movie right NOW!   I was fortunate to finish the book right before the move came out.  On Wednesday, my mom and I met up with the girls on my Dad's side of the family.  We had a little girls night out.  We had dinner at Cafe Rio and then we went to see the movie.  I loved the book and I was hoping that the movie would meet my expectations, and it definitely did! 

and I must say that Emma Stone does an excellent job.  Don't you just love her??
