So I apologize for the lack in posting, in two weeks I'll be home finding all sorts of stuff to blog about, but for now I must stick to the basic college-kid life.
Finals are right around the corner and it feels like my life is in overdrive. My only escape is to go run for miles, then return to continue studying. I had an interesting conversation with a young man yesterday about the Concealed Carry petition going around school. He was for it and we talked about the pros and cons for a while, before he looked me up and down and asked if I even knew how to shoot. *Sigh*
I smiled and went into a very long, indepth explination of how I began shooting and how he really shouldn't sterotype, for future refrence. I bid him goodbye before he could shake that dumbfounded look off his face.

I returned to the big ol' school of leaning on Sunday, and this drive back was much harder than the others. I had spent all Thanksgiving week with them, cooking, building, and carrying on. I even got to sit in on the adult conversations I once was asked to leave from. (Boringggg).
Nonetheless, I am without a doubt, a family personality. As much as I do not want to reproduce, I don't know what I would do without the closeness of our crazy family.

Christmas is right around the corner, and this holiday isn't always the easiest. My roomate has started decorating our room in festive colors, and is singing the Christmas carols. Ugh. Two more weeks.. Two more weeks..

Y'all have a fantastic Hump Day.


  1. I had to once show my Mother I knew how to shoot by blowing them away with shooting skeet. I have always loved to shoot and have been a pretty fair shot my whole life.

    I also never felt the need to reproduce. Good thing I got with someone who already had children that I could help raise as my own. They are my children whether blood or not. I even have a granddaughter following my blog. Makes me smile.

    Hang in there and you will be home for the holidays soon. In the meantime keep up the good work.

  2. Thanks G, yeah my parents taught me well in that aspect. And that's good that it worked out that way :)
    Thanks for your support :)

  3. I was thinking about you and your dad today while I was building the manger in my backyard for the goats and sheep. I plan on blogging about it tomorrow.

    Anyway I was thinking about how you said you enjoyed building with your dad and I thought of all the things both you and your dad have said about what he taught you.

    Then I thought of my dad and how he was forever telling me "Girls don't do that." "Girls don't wear boots." "Girls don't..." You get the idea.

    I think is it great that both parents are teaching you valuable things and your dad is good enough not to blow you off just because you are female. What an blessing to have.

  4. I am beyond blessed with two wonderful supporting parents. My mom and I learned to sew and quilt together, and my dad taught me to shoot and build things. I would bet my life that without either of them teaching me the values that are so strong in my life, there is no way I would be sitting here doing what I've always wanted.
    It's funny how at the time, you don't realize how important the little lectures are, or the meaning of the little things in general.

    Personally, I'm pretty sure it's just because he didn't have boys, and he needed a helping hand every now and then :) jkjk

    Have a great weekend :)

  5. LOL, you better jk. Your going home for Christmas soon. lol
