I'm losing my brain but the weekend is coming.

I have finally decided that I need to not only obtain a planner, but use it. I have had lots of planners in my life, but I have never really used them past the first week after I buy them. However, this was the first week of school and I already forgot three things... including going to a class. One of the other things I forgot (to put on mascara yesterday morning) isn't something I can write in a planner to remember. But, Rhonda-Mom told me that if I write down everything else then I won't be stressed and forget to do things like put on mascara. She is smart, I think I'm going to try it.

Oh, by the way, I dreamed that I performed heart surgery on my mother last night. It was stressful, too. And weird.

So, things are pretty crazy right now while I am trying to adjust to working full time in a fast pace job and go to school at the same time. But I do have one good thing to report-- the viewbook is done and printed!!! After working on it for 2 months, I held the final product in my hands today and it felt so good!

If I knew how...

If I knew how to make my own blog layout and make it work, I imagine I would make it look something like this... Instead I just design fake blogs and then make incoming freshman tell me their goals so that I can fake-post them on the blog! I love my job... :)

Fortunately, I am taking a web/flash class this coming semester (school starts on the 25th... where has the summer gone?!), so maybe in a few months I really will know how to publish my own blog layouts!

Lastly, I think It is appropriate that since I am making the new students post their goals, I should post a few of mine... but first I will send ten of then to Sarah, let her edit them, cut out the 5 that are most lame, re-write them, make them better, make me sound more ambitious then I am, and then I will post them... or I might just go through all the incoming freshman's goals that she has already gone through that process with, and steal the goals of theirs that sound pretty fun to me. Either say, stay tuned! My goals are going to come soon!
