So much to say

And this entry can't nearly encompass everything that has happened..good things for the most part. I came back from Cape Cod and Jay and I went to many interesting places- Hyannis Port, Nantucket, Martha's Vineyard, Provincetown, and Plymoth Rock. I took many pictures and it was just an incredible week.

My father is feeling the same; which is to say he is weak and forgetful. He is definitely, and probably wont be, the same man he was before Feb 6. He now has to take shots since his red blood cell count is very low. He is also experiencing insomnia and claims that he hasn't had a good night's sleep in over 3 months. I really do hope that his naps help him some. It's up to the point that I am used to this sad phase and it's hard for me to see how someone may not understand what we are all going through *Sigh*

I dont mean to end on a sad note and my highlight is still the wonderful vacation that i was on.

I almost forgot. We had our closing today and we are now proud owners of a one bedroom coop. Yay! My parents did this as an investment for me one day while we will all share it for now. That is another bit of exciting news!

Hope to write again soon :)

My Vacation

My third year of college is over!! I finished all that I had to and took all of my finals so I should be stress free for a good 3 months :)

Did I mention here that I'm going to Cape Cod for a week from May 20- 27th? I don't think I did, but in any case, that's where I'm heading. I had asked a couple of my friends if they had wanted to go and they said no! Can you believe that. I mean the trip is on me, since we have a time share, so no one would have to pitch in for anything. So it turns out that it will only be Jason and I which I guess is a good thing. We're both very dependable and responsible and should have a good time. My plan is to go to Nantucket, Martha's Vineyard, and Plymouth Rock possibly? I have a few more places that slipped from memory. I'm looking forward to it!

I have a really funny story to tell that happened at work on Monday. I work in an after-school program and on this particular day, I was helping a boy who is in the 5th grade. Now this little guy is really smart and he started to ask me a bunch of questions about college. He asked me what I'm studying, if I'm on the principle's list like he is (lol I told him I'm on the Dean's list which is very similar), what classes I'm taking and he even asked me to explain what "Psychology" is.

So finally after I'm done with all of that the boy asks me what I'm planning on doing with my degree. Well I tell him I might be planning on becoming a school counselor.

You know what his reaction was?

"That's it???? You're going through all of these years of school just for that?? Well 'I' want to become a lawyer, at least they make a lot of money"

lol can you believe this little smart as....

Ah well, I love the kid anyway and don't worry I didn't let him get away with it. After I told him lawyers have a to do a loooott of reading (and the kid hates to read), he quickly changed his mind :)

Feelin anxious today

Today I took my first final and it went alright, just a lot of memorization. I'm writing now because I won't for a few days since I have all this studying for finals! I finish my last one on Tuesday and til then it's all work and "some" play :)

I have a communion on Sat, I can't wait! I'm going with Jay and I will take lots of pictures!

Been watching American Idol anyone? Of course, I'm sure most of you are, silly question,lol. My fav's are Katherine and Chris but I can't seem to guess which will be the top two, its so hard this year!

I wanted to make a "The view" entry but there is just not enough time. They will be replacing Meredith Vieira with Rosie O'Donnell and that's sad news! I will continue watching but I wished they could have chosen someone else,lol

That's all for now, wish me luck on my finals everyone! Hugss
