The Battle

Mind: Hey body, let's go! Get up it's time to further BEB's future!!
Body: Alright. What's on the agenda this week?
Mind: Well, we're going to get through six hours of class Monday and Friday, Eight hours on Wednesday, and Two on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Body: Sweet! I can handle that.
Mind: I hope you don't mind that three of those classes are at 8 in the morning. Oh and don't forget, we have to work until ten every night except weekends.
Body: Oh.. Okay. Well. At least I'll get the weekends to relax.
Mind: Did you see those homework assignments?? Man I can't wait to get started on that on Saturday.
Body: Woah Woah Woah Mind. Hold up. I didn't agree to all this. I worked too hard this summer to let you push me around again this Semester.
Mind: Well you really don't have much of a choice. You're the chauffeur in this outfit ma'am. This is for the betterment of BEBs future! She'll thank us later.
Body: We will see what she can do when I drop her immune system to all these college kids.
Mind:You wouldn't dare.

And that my friends, is how I contracted a cough, sore throat, and the oncomings of a fever. Thank you, mind and body, for constantly disagreeing with one another on how much I can take.

This semester is going to be nuts. I've visited all my classes at least once now, and I'm terrified. Biology, Chemistry, Psychology, Animal Science, and two 3 hour labs. Oh plus racquetball. And body has decided it's time for the college cough. Just wonderful. Well, at least my future will be worth it. Lots of EmergenC for this girl.
Alright, y'all have a Happy Hump day. Don't get too busy.

Box Of Flowers

It's funny, at home, you can't get me into the garden without a threat and a box of chocolate. There is just something about flowers and plants and such that I honestly couldn't care less about. Don't get me wrong, I loved having a garden at home and eating fresh veggies all the time, I just hated dealing with it. I left that nonsense to the parents.
However, sitting on my balcony this morning checking out my atrocious view of the street, I decided I wanted some flowers. So I picked up The Boy from campus and we headed to the Army Surplus store to pick up some wooden ammo boxes they had sitting out front. They wanted twenty a piece, but some cute words and a smile from the boy got them down to ten. I'll never live it down.
Anyway, we took the hatch off of one of them and zip tied it to the top of my balcony. Let me just say, I love it. I've never been happier about a piece of green life sprouting from the abyss of black dirt. I've never felt so giddy :)
I had planned to fill the other with dirt and do the same, but while picking out flowers The Boy hinted that my present for my birthday would take up the other box. :)
Enough about that, tonight we're making lasagna and all that great nonsense. I will defenitely post pictures in the morning about that. I'm just so excited about my new flower boxes. Have a look :)
This is after we took the hatch off.
Final result!! So pretty:)
Y'all have a great weekend!!

I love to cook!

There. I said it. I love to cook. That is the most exciting part of having my own place, the kitchen. These past couple of nights I've been experimenting with different types of routine dishes just to test out what I'm working with, and tonight it's the oven. I'm making French Bread Pizza, (My mom's idea) and I'm so excited. It's crazy what a little cooking can accomplish.
I'm pretty sure in the twenty minutes it has taken me to put this together, I've solved world hunger, global warming, and picked the perfect candidate for our upcoming election. I think my grandma would fill that position very well, honestly.
Today was pretty lazy, I helped the Boyfriend move into his dorm and spent the day helping him unpack, then went shopping for groceries. I've spent way too much time cleaning this apartment, especially if they charge as much as they do if you leave it dirty. Very frustrating. Tomorrow I am going to pick up some flower boxes from the local army surplus store, to put on my front balcony.
Alright y'all, have a great night and see ya tomorrow.

Where I Come From

Well, I'm back. I apologize to those who kept up with me, I didn't really mean to just drop off the face of the earth. I'm starting a new year here at the big ol' school of learning, and I'm oh so excited. I moved into my new apartment, loaded up the car with gas, stocked the pantry with horrible, unhealthy food, and now I can finally sit down and tell about my amazing summer.
I made a deal with myself when I arrived home and unpacked my bags back in May. I told future me, "Hey. Do something this summer. Make memories. Help people." So I did. I worked for 47 hours a week, volunteered at the local vet clinic for 20, and tried to spend as much time as possible with my family. It was a blast. I'm sure some of you have been watching MDR's blog, and I was right there with him the whole time.
It's amazing how much I love my family. Some would call it clingy, others weak, but I honestly would give the world to fulfill my dreams with them by my side. Luckily, four hours really isn't that far in case of an emergency. Haha
I start school and work on Monday, and I am beyond excited. Class is going to be outrageously tough, but I figure I can handle it. Just those pesty sciences no one can ever get away from, haha. I've already cooked a couple meals in my new kitchen, and I can tell it wont be happening as often as I would like, what with food expenses and such. Oh well. I can't wait to catch up with all the blogs I've been missing, and I hope everyone has a great Fall season.
Oh! And if anyone has any tips on growing a garden.... apartment size.... please let me know! I'm really excited for some tomatoes... or whatever it is you grow in a Fall garden. If anyone ever needs anything, don't hesitate to ask. I'm just a comment or email away.
I'll be posting tons about my experiences here, since now I can be a little more productive :)
Have a great evening!
