Fun, Workouts and Stess

It has been a little while since I have written but here goes. Taryn was here last week which was awesome I loved having her here. She stayed at my apartment, so we got to hang out, we went shopping with Karleigh one day and had a Superbowl party. I didn't really care which team won, I cheered for the Cardinals because they the underdog and because the Steelers beat the Chargers, who I was cheering for. So to make a long story short I had a great week with Taryn. On another exciting note I have started going to the gym regularly, it has only been like a week and a half but I am excited about it and motivated to go. I also got really cute new workout clothes that I am really excited about, like my purple Underarmor shirt, it is pretty much amazing. I couldn't get a picture of the purple one so imagine it in purple instead of pink.
I was excited to go to a dance class at the gym tonight with my roommates but sadly I have WAY too much work to do. This last week and a half was crazy. I had a 5 page paper due in Humanities on Friday, it wasn't too bad but who wants to write a paper? I also took a test for one of my Comms electives and I got 98% I was pretty excited. Sadly the one I got wrong I knew and convinced myself otherwise, stupid multiple choice. But thats ok I'll take a 98!
The worst was probably the test that I had to take this morning, it was for Humanities and was the visual portion, we had to learn 42 different pictures, the title, artist, time period, where it was from and the significance. That is WAY more information than I can handle, Katie and I were up VERY late studying, we came up with some very funny, but helpful, ways of remembering everything. I think I did well. Now I just have to take the other half on Thursday. But before that I have to take a religion test and turn in a paper and do a presentation, hence the stress portion. I am trying to do my paper right now but needed a break. All I have to do is make it through Thursday then hopefully I will be headed here...
SAN DIEGO! We are headed down for the three-day weekend. My parents will be there and my Aunt Joan is really sick so we wanted to go visit her. So it will be slightly sad but hopefully it will be a good trip, if I can make it through this week.

What gym do you workout at? Holy cow, that's a lot of homework. At least it's your last semester. I miss you!

I have that shirt in purple!!! Good work. Have so much fun in San Diego, I am jealous. I talked to Joan on the phone yesterday since I probably won't get down there before the inevitable, but she sounded in good spirits and I think it will be a nice trip for you and she will love seeing you guys too. Say hi to mom and dad and don't miss me too much!
