I have not posted in a while, I know. I meant to during Christmas break from school, but I needed time to have a life for a little while! Haha! I've missed you all though. I haven't checked or commented much on other blogs in a while either, sorry, I'll get to it. I'm usually so busy with school and I needed a break from everything for a while. So, I might as well tell you what's been going on since I last blogged. A lot of things have happened since then: some good, fun, some heartbreaking and sad, some interesting. Lol!
Let's start with the good things. I hope you all had a lovely holiday season, it's a little late, I know, but whatever. I did, mostly (more on the depressing part in a bit...). I spent time with family and friends, relaxed, and did not think about school at all, which was nice. I spent 2 days around Christmas making a ridiculous amount of cookies (Chocolate Chip, Peanut Butter, Italian Amaretti, Shortbread with various Jams, Gingerbread, and Sugar!), which I loved, but it's a lot of work! See, here's a few of the many, aren't they cute:
I gave away a bunch to family and friends. What's better than homemade cookies in cute tins tied with pretty ribbons!
Had a really hard time trying not to laugh...lol!
On New Year's Eve I went to a party at my sister's house with a bunch of family and friends. Since I usually stay home on New Year's Eve, it was fun and different. There was a lot of food, interesting conversation, and fireworks. Of course we watched the New Year's Eve special on TV and watched the ball drop. I made friends with my niece's best friend's mother...lol, she was a really sweet lady (why do I always get along better with either younger or older people...?). I made one of the best cakes ever, not to be arrogant, but it was so delicious! (Strawberry Cake with Swiss Meringue Pink Champagne Buttercream!, recipe will be on here soon). I got to spend time with my lovely cousin/best friend, April. It was nice. A couple of us spent the night at my sister's house, so I was up late gossiping with my neices, friends, my mom and aunt...which was hilarious, ha! New Year's Day, I didn't do much. I just wore a sparkly skirt and had dinner with my brother and father at his restaurant.
Now, I mentioned earlier there were some not so happy things that happened since my last, overly excited, happy-girl blog post... My boyfriend...or um, ex-boyfriend, and I broke up. :( I'm debating whether I should tell you guys what happened. It's sort of entertaining, if it's not happening to you, I suppose...lol. I swear I walked into a romantic comedy/drama ,without the happy ending, for about a month. It was ridiculous. Of course, if you read how excited I was in my last post, you'd probably guess that I was sort of devastated about it. Maybe I'm a tad over-dramatic, but whatever, I was crushed. I'm trying to get over it/him (which I don't do so well...example: previous posts on my silly crush on a guy for way too long). What do you guys think, interested in hearing my ridiculous story? lol! Maybe I'll write about it later...
I also started a new semester of school last week. Of course, I went back earlier than everyone I know at other colleges, who are still on vacation (totally not bitter...ha!). It's okay though, I like school, even though it drives me crazy; things I love tend to do that. I'm taking some education courses (Teaching Language Arts & Technology and Teaching Science), Geography, World Religions, and an English class: The Romantic Period. I'm also starting Practicum (like student teaching but only once a week) at a new school this Tuesday, which I'm excited about. I'll be in a fourth grade classroom this time. Should be fun! :)
Although I didn't blog, I did take a bunch of pictures of a lot of my outfits the past month, so they'll be on here soon too. I have a lot more posts planned, I'm going to try not to disappear again! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and are doing well. Comment below if you'd like and follow my blog please. :)
