Oh my! 4:46 am is becoming a time that I am coming into contact with more often. I hope that this proves fruitful. The amount of weight I have gained since I moved home is crazy ridiculous. I have got to do something about it. So waking up at 4:46 is what I have to do. It's what I have done for two days in a row. It takes 14 days to make a habit and thats what I keep telling myself!

Lucky for me I will be in NY this weekend and will be able to do afternoon work outs. I am looking forward to this mini vacation and attending Nathan and Marisa's 2nd and 4th birthday. I have missed those kids!

End of Medical School Prerequisites

  1. I just registered today for the last class I need to apply to medical school!! Another thing crossed off my 101 list!! :) I am sooo excited about being done with my prereqs and just needing to take the MCAT.
  2. At work this week they split up our current positions into two different positions and re-assigned people. I was initially really stressed about the situation, but I was blessed and favored to be given a position that would be one I am truly interested in.
  3. Next week I have two days off of work and school and I am beyond excited for some time to sleep!
  4. I am pretty obsessed with cake balls and I have made at least 100 this week.
  5. I saw For Colored Girls this week. It was interesting. It opened my eyes to the people around me and how much as a society we deal with in the quiet of our home. I pray that my eyes and ears will be opened to those around me that need help.
  6. I also pray that I can pay off this stupid bill for fixing a car for my sister. I know this too shall pass but it will be a good memory to look back at and help me remember not to be stressed about so much.
  7. I start working with the youth at church on Sunday! Woo hoo!! That I am excited about. I finally found a church I love and now I will be able to plug myself into a ministry that I am passionate about.
Happy Weekend!! (:

30 Day Blog Challenge: Day 6

I know that I have been slacking in my blogging lately. I have been just soo busy with work and school. I'm in no means complaining because I do enjoy my life. I am just super busy!

I have heard through the grapevine that I need to update my blog .. so here I go!! I am not saying these are the only things that make me happy, but here are quite a few! Some things that will make me happy in the future will be finishing this A&P class, taking Physics II next year, retaking the MCAT and getting into Medical School. These are some of the bigger things I hope to accomplish on my 101 list.
