a much needed break

I'm taking a short and much needed break from my studying to shop around the internet. I've started my own Project Life album but I still need to purchase an actual album for my photo sleeves. Perhaps with my first job paycheck. I thought these cute ceramic baskets from Anthropologie would be perfect for storing photos and journal cards. I never thought I'd be a scrapbook person but I love taking photos of everyday small things and create the layouts.  I really want to learn to be at photoshop and this Learn by video thing seems like it would really help. All the books I've seen are HUGE and I just don't know if I'd ever get through them. Alrighty I'm going to go back to studying mental health assessments.

I want these!!

My entire day is (again) devoted to studying. Only 7 days to go and I cannot wait!!!! Four exclamation points doesn't even start to convey how excited I am to be done with this exam.

long list+short list

The short list:
1. Just keep studying!
2. Get the guts to sign up for the boards
3. make something for fun

The long list: 
1. Find a job
2. move to somewhere else
3. go to the waterpark
4. take NBCOT exam and PASS IT!
5. complete a month of project life
6. make mini pies
7. go to the new brewery in pittsburgh
8. fit in all the fun summer things before its over
9. go to the drive-in again
10. finish my quilt

Wow, that long list starts off a little scary. I'd much rather focus on going to the drive-in and finishing my quilt than planning a life changing move and getting a job. 

My plans for the night include an insane amount of studying followed by trashy TV in bed with the air conditioner on.

+ multi color flashcards

Soo much information!

I have been buying everything in yellow lately. I went to Target this afternoon to get away from my pile of books and try to relax. I also needed orange juice. I have had the weirdest craving for orange juice and I usually never drink it. I made a trip to Walgreens for my developed photos and started my photo album. I love it so far and can't wait to order the actual album. I only have the plastic sheets right now because I am trying not to spend a dime until I get a job. 

I took a practice test this morning and I did pretty good. The ones in the slim book are so much better! Tonight I am going to study for a few hours and plan to take another practice exam on Friday. I can't wait until this test is OVER!  I still need to schedule it for the 19th. (gulp). 

Annie is staring me down right now so I should probably take her out for a walk.

Philip's gone and I'm still not studying

I dropped Philip off at the airport this morning. I missed him the moment I got home to the quiet apartment. I feel like I'm going to have too much time to think while he's gone.

I took Annie pup to the park today and went over to Olivia's house to review for the NBCOT exam. We walked up to Cold Stone Creamery and got giant waffle cones for Rachel's birthday. I wish we could take the exam as a group of 4.

stress. have fun. stress more. try to have fun again. repeat.

This past week was really fun. Bethany and I drove up to Lake Erie on Wednesday and went swimming. The weather was perfect for swimming, freaking hot hot burning sand hot! The water was kind of yucky and full of seaweed grossness but other than that it was great. We got lunch at Sheetz and drinks and donuts at Tim Horton's.

My weekend was also fun because Erin, Eric, Ben and my Dad came to visit. We all went to the Science center on Friday and walked around checking things out. Later we went out to dinner and saw fireworks at Mt. Washington. We also went to the Children's museum on Saturday and had dinner at the Church Brew Works. We rode the Duquense Incline. It was so much fun.

Today its back to applying to jobs and making myself study for the NBCOT exam. I can't wait to be done with that thing!
