The Tricks of Time

manage to always
myself into thinking
projects won't take
"that long"
..it will be easy & quick.

That is most always not the case.
i made these bookmarks
earlier this week for
a presentation in my
positive psycology class.
i really did enjoy making them
i just didn't enjoy the fact that
i tricked myself into
thinking it would be
quick & easy.

i am
glad i made them though.
the presentation went

the quote reads:
Most People are about as happy as
they make up their minds to be.

Circus Dog

Razz has developed quite
the fun personality.
Sometimes he gets really hyper
and likes to be
Circus Dog
he runs around the house
and under things
as fast as he can.
Its like he is running an
obstacle course.
It is so funny.

This week I started my first internship at
Division of Child and Family Services [DCFS].
So far, I have loved it and I am really excited to learn
from all the amazing people there.
Everyone is so nice and willing to help.
[That's probably why they are social workers]
Working with DCFS this week has made me really happy
for choosing to become a social worker.
It will be a lot of work always,
but the point is I will be helping people.
I am excited to continue learning from the
experiences ahead.

Weekend Adventures

Last weekend was a fun one.
it consisted of:
Shopping with some of my closest girlfriends
Having carne asada at our house
Thanks to Antonio & Amy-it was so delicious!
A yummy breakfast with the girls at Kneaders
A day full of errands
and evening at Olive Garden & the movie house.
We ran into some of our friends from Kansas at Olive Garden.
It was such a delight to see Kyle & Nicole.

We saw Black Swan. Not so good.
Although, Natalie Portman did a great job of acting.

Thanks for the great weekend everyone.

Goodbye 2010

{2010} will always have a special place in my heart.
It's the year I married my best friend and became a wife.
Not only was I married, but it was a year full of firsts,
excitement, peace, love, growth, and much, much more.
It was lovely. .Idyllic.
I can't believe it has already come and gone.
It's January 6th for crying out loud.
Needless to say, time flies.

In {2011} I have some goals to:
slow down
read more
be prepared
serve others
put my sewing machine to use


I am so excited to discover and explore in 2011.
Thanks for the memories 2010.

Happy New Year
