No More Drama Please!

I am getting ready to graduate for the last time ever! Thank goodness for that cause I don't know how much more I can handle! This round of school was especially hard because I had already been through 4 1/2 years of college, had been on a 2 1/2 year break from school, and was in a class with 21 other girls! No boys at all.
I really dislike the drama that can come from so many girls. I have 6 friends that I'm closer to than the rest and there is still drama in that small of a group! I am ready to get away! I am excited to finally leave Morgantown and begin the rest of my life! The sad part really hasn't hit me yet that I am leaving my friends. I figure it'll hit me on graduation day (May 15th) or after I have been home sitting on my butt for a week or two with no friends to hang out with.

I may or may not go to Charleston and back on Wednesday to screen a back-up patient for my board exam. I have not been able to get ahold of this patient so that is still up in the air. My actual board patient that I have had for the last month told me last week that he wasn't sure if he would have to work the Friday of my exam! WTF!? So I offered him money for the time he'd be missing work and he told me he'd let me know Monday. Then I called him back today and he said it was cool and could get out of work that day! He seriously made me hold my breath for the last 4 days! I just hope it will all work out! I guess the offer of money was good enough. I need some good in my life right now in the form of my board patient showing and finally passing this time! Then maybe I can be happy & sad about graduation with no nervousness in the way!

Drama! Drama! Drama! I cannot wait for it to end!

Wickedly Good

So, I had started reading "Lord of the Flies" recently, then after the third chapter I decided I wanted to read Charlaine Harris' book "Dead and Gone" instead. Now I really can't wait until True Blood comes back on!

Today my roomie and I made a trip to the local liquor store to pick us up some Everclear. We are planning to have a pre-party shindig at our place before our dental hygiene formal this Saturday. We are making some punch called Purple Jesus. Sounded yummy, and we decided we wanted purple drinks since the dental hygiene color is purple. Anyway, I have never made a punch with grain alcohol in it so I hope it turns out okay and not nasty like some I have tasted. Here is the recipe we are using. I'll let ya know how it turns out and get some pics too.

In other news, I am going on a tiny trip tomorrow. For a my independent study class, we are going to Snowshoe to spend the night then get up and go to some schools to teach them about good brushing and flossing. This program is called Lessons in a Lunch Box. I love a good sleepover so this will be fun.

AND the Glee premiere was on last night and it was so good! I love Idina Menzel and had no idea she was going to be a guest on the show! She played Elphaba in Wicked and Maureen in RENT (my favorite!) on Broadway AND is married to Taye Diggs (luck-y!)! She is gorgeous and has a beautiful voice too!

And now I will leave you with this tidbit about myself: I love the Kroger sushi!

hahahaha No lie! This was my 10th oldest picture I could find on my computer! This is just about 10 years ago (summer 2000) after my bestest friend Adam and I graduated from HHS. We went to Myrtle Beach with my family and just had to get this ole timey picture made! Probably the most serious faces you'll ever see from both of us in a pic! Pretty awesome if I do say so myself!

Television Exitement and Not So Much

While at home last week, during my one day of actual rest, I watched the entire season of Project Runway on my TiVo up until the present. I love that show but for some reason don't bother to catch it when it actually comes on tv. That is why I love my TiVo! Hopefully I'll soon be making my own money and will be able to have one when I get my new place.

TUESDAY, APRIL 13th - The new season of GLEE begins! This show is awesome and takes me back to my short-lived days of being in show choir [band]. Total band geek here, geeky enough to be in the show choir band! haha I love musicals anyway, plus I love acapella music and tv shows, so why not love this one?!

SUNDAY JUNE 13th - TRUE BLOOD Season 3! Oh. My. Goodness. I simply cannot wait until this comes back on. I just bought the most recent book to come out in paperback that has to do with this show, so I'll probably read it (and maybe reread some of the ones that came before it) soon to get me even more pumped up for the show! I'll do this but I try to take the book and television show as two separate stories because many things are changed. This is one of the few times I can do this cause I love them both so much! P.S. I'm not much for blondes, I'm more for the dark-haired guys, but I guess that is different with vampires cause I am totally for Eric! Anyone else with me there?

And finally, I've decided to give up on American Idol this season. I'm really not all that impressed and have lost interest. The only person I think should win is Crystal Bowersox, and if anyone else does I don't really care all that much anymore. I used to like Andrew Garcia a lot but he keeps going downhill. Maybe I'll just watch the finale.

I've been really bad about posting recently, so I apologize! My time here in Morgantown is down to 6 more weeks (39 days to be exact), then I will never have to return! Hooray!!! One fun thing about my program is making the monthly bulletin board for the pediatric clinic. The March bulletin is shown in the picture above.
I've been super busy and I will tell you a little about that now.

My mom came to visit me, here in Morganhole, 2 weeks ago. We mostly drove around and shopped almost everywhere it seems and ate in between. Two weeks from now I have my dental hygiene formal, so we were looking for me a dress. Good ole Dress Barn to the rescue! No need to go anywhere else but the first place I looked, of course.

One week later, I got to go home for spring break! I love being home. Very comforting to be there with my family and Phil. So mom and I have been planning a trip for spring break, she took off the whole week from work just to go, and up until "the breakup" I was all for it. But since now I have to shell out so many bucks to take that stupid test over again, I felt really bad spending more money to go on this mini-trip but then I would feel bad to let my mom down by not going too. So we went. And it was a good time! We went to Asheville, NC where we went to the Biltmore and toured it for hours! It is ginormous! Apart from the actual "house" there were gardens, a winery, so much land and awesome views!

Mom and drove around using my GPS, Rudy. It helped most when looking for places to eat. We went to a place called "Papa's and Beer" and it was a Mexican restaurant. Go figure. It had some amazing bean dip in place of salsa. Rudy also helped us find places to shop. Some places good, some places not so much. In the good place we found I bought the book I am currently reading, which you can see in the column to your right. I also broke down and bought some eyeshadow primer called Too Faced Shadow Insurance. Mucho expensivo but it works great! Plus it was nice to not have to order online. I'm weird like that.
One day of our trip we treated ourselves to lunch at The Grove Park Inn in the Sunset Terrace. We both got the special which was a mushroom and cheese ravioli, drank sweet tea, and we shared a dessert. Delicious! And it also had spectacular views and a spa that I would have died to been able to go to!After we came home from this mini-vacay, I headed up to Charleston at 7am the next morning to volunteer and try to find me another board patient. I went to the Health Right there and I actually found someone! I just hope it turns out, but I'm seeing this patient again this week for a mid-week journey to Charleston and back to Morgantown. It's like teasing me that I actually get to go home, but then no. I also toured WV Tech's dental clinic with the other 3 girls that are taking it there with me.

Then came Easters. Two Easters. On Saturday, Phil and I spent time with and ate dinner with my family. We colored eggs, hid them and hunted them with my little cousin, and I tried to find a board patient out of my family members. No luck there! Anyway, I was hiding the eggs with my little cousin and she went in the grass and dumped them all out of the basket and started putting them "night night". She was covering them up with leaves, then she said she was putting Dora on, and pretended to turn off the lights. It was too cute! That is how many of our eggs ended up being cracked, but they served their purpose.

On Sunday, before I left to go back to school, Phil and I ate with his family at his grandmother's house. Very relaxing and I didn't want to leave :(

So that should be it really to catch y'all up! Oh, and WVU lost in the Final 4. Didn't watch it but heard it wasn't pretty. No comment really. Not a basketball fan or a WVU fan, but do support WV! haha Alright, enough already :)
