Totally random updates

Friday, May 11, 2012

I have so much to say and so little patience to write a long, well-written blog. Prepare yourself to hear very random things that you may or may not care about. lol! ;)

ROCKFEST is tomorrow!! That's what my ticker has been counting down to. What is it you ask? Only the biggest rock concert in the country!!! 12 bands for just $35, can't beat that! All day show and it's going to be totally EPIC! I can't wait!!!!!! emoticon

Class is almost over and I scored a 50/50 on my final lab project. BAM, THAT'S what I'M talkin' about!!

I've learned that Dental hygiene school is really hard to get accepted into and I pretty much shot myself in the foot w/ my low GPA from my first college experience. Way too much partying and not enough studying. Now that I'm serious about it, the past is coming up to haunt me. *sad face*

Sooo, if I want to go this route I guess I need to start from the bottom up as a dental assistant. I found a 10 week course that was reasonably priced and is close to home. That starts in September. If I pass that, I'll be able to get hired right away (HOPEFULLY) as an assistant. I'll take some more science classes and try to raise my GPA in the meantime, and eventually will work my way up to a hygienist. Getting that assistant certificate will increase my chances of acceptance. Finally, I have hope again! Yay!

My daughter is THRILLED about making the school talent show!!!! I'm SO incredibly proud of her! She's going to clog with another little girl and I'm sure will be a hit! She said when they auditioned that all of the judges gave them standing ovations and that everyone clapped really loud. She is beyond excited about it! Yes, I'm a very proud mommy! emoticon

I have the BEST sparkfriends a girl could ask for!!! I ordered three crochet hats for my aunt who is going through chemotherapy and when they arrived, it ended up being just the patterns! DOH! emoticon I contacted the only person I knew who crochets, (a very sweet and dear spark friend, Deborah.) I asked if she would make me some with the patterns and I would pay her, and she so generously offered to do it....for free! How blessed am I?!!! Thanks, Deborah! Love ya lots!

One more random thing, I LOST TWO POUNDS THIS WEEK! emoticon

That is all.....

LOVE YOU GUYS!!!!! Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there! emoticon

    Wow, that is a lot going on! I am sure you will enjoy the concert and I am glad that you are able to go. Sounds like quite the deal.

As for your GPA, people fail to realize what a long term impact low marks can make. I really don't think it is drilled into student's heads at all at the beginning of their schooling (when it should be) and people find out far too late to change anything.

So happy for your must be super proud of her and her talents

Glad you lost the truly are a Done Girl!

    That was a really great blog post. I sometimes get impatient trying to read through a long drawn out blog (which makes me feel guilty).

Sounds like life is treating you well at the moment - Good for you - You deserve all good things.

    I love your random things! It was so much fun to read and so nice to get an update from you. Enjoy Rockfest! It sounds like a blast! I know you are loving the talent show and the excitement in your daughter's eyes. I get the same way about my kids. That's what it's all about. Man, sometimes I think life just doesn't get any better than that. When you really "get" the excitement in your kids. Seriously, nothing compares. Enjoy!

    That will be a totally awesome fun experience that Rockfest!
Sorry about the GPA, but it seems like you have found a work around to get in the back door so to speak.. That is one incredible lab mark though!!!!
SUPER WELL DONE on the weight loss! Be careful at the Rockfest -you know the stuff there isn't going to be healthy and low cal ;)
Would love to see a video of your new star doing her clogging thing!
Good on Deborah -she is going to do an awesome job with those chrochet patterns!
Keep on being the fabulous Rock Star that you are!!

    Great blog with so much happiness in it! I've only been to Rockfest once, but it was awesome!! Tomorrow's weather will be perfect for it too. How exciting about the talent show!! A very proud moment indeed. Congrats on the your lab project and for having a plan on where to go next. Sometimes just figuring it all out is the hardest part. You will do great though! You are rocking the weightloss girl!! Way to go! Hope you have an awesome time at the concerts and a very wonderful and special Mother's Day! emoticon
