Again, a toss up between two!!!
I've watched this since the very first season and I'm addicted!!
And I just started watching this show when it premiered a couple of months ago. It's an awesome show!!
After graduation, I had every intention on pursuing my Bachelors at that time. But I decided I needed to take a semester off. A much needed break from school. Well, one semester led to two semesters.. then three... then, well, you get the point.
Which brings us to present time. 3 years later ~ August, 2010 at the ripe old age of 42, I am once again a College Student.
Then only thing that (excuse my language) SUCKS about it is the fact that since I took more than two semesters off, I have lost my catalog rights, therefore the Breadth Requirements to transfer to a University has changed. Yes, that's right, additional class requirements have been added therefore, there are few more classes that I have to take at the JC level before I can transfer to Stanislaus State. (Or any University for that matter).
10 days ago, I walked on campus for my first class. Can I just tell you that although I know I am WAY older than 95% of the students there, I was relieved to see that there are people I assume to be my age, if not OLDER?!? I did feel out of place in a couple of my classes where the kids are fresh out of High School (like my Algebra class)and here I am, old enough to be their mother, sitting in class with them. Quite humbling actually.
My first obstacle in my quest to transfer came the first day of classes. I walked into my Physics Class and the "Professor of Physics" as she labeled herself, was very intimidating! I sat thru the lecture listening to a bunch of mumble jumble and walked out of class not knowing what the heck she was talking about!! It was kinda like:
"If you're at the top of the Empire State Building and you drop a sharpened pencil over the railing into a Starbucks Cup which is at the base of the building, at what speed was the pencil spiraling downward to make that much of a hole in the bottom of the cup upon impact?"
Those type of questions. I'm all good with the "Distance equals Rate times Time" kind of scenarios, but talk about confused!!!
So, after a week of classes, I had to drop my Physics class. Physics is just not my cup of tea. I do need another Science Class to fulfill my transfer requirements, so I will be having to take SOMETHING one way or another.
It's been a butt kicking 10 days for me (since I last blogged AND since classes started) and I am not liking it at all. However, I am so very lucky to have a WONDERFUL husband who is very supportive of me. It's with his support emotionally that helps me get through the days!!
Oh... another thing that's been helping me get thru my 7 a.m. Algebra class is my favorite in the whole, wide world!!
Mmmm... A Grande Caramel Frappucinno with Caramel around the cup! Yummy!!

*The reason why I knew that there was something wrong with the plates and I couldn't place it was this: We JUST transferred Suzy's registration from Minnesota to California (no pun intended) last year. And, we had trouble with getting the registration tags this year, and had just put the 2010 ones on them last month. SO.... there were only two stickers on Suzy's plates. The stolen plates that was put on Suzy had sticker, upon sticker, upon sticker, upon sticker... THAT WAS THE DIFFERENCE. That's what I noticed different about Suzy's license plate, but NEVER IT NEVER CROSSED MY MIND.
Side note: My next post will be my 200th Post! Be sure to come back for your chance to enter my very special GiveAway!!!

I'm a highly energetic cupcake-obsessed high school theatre teacher/director. I actually teach at the high school I attended as a young dame and teaching with my favorite theatre teacher! It's a blast. I love my job and my crazy awesome students! I direct up to 3 shows a year, and that definitely keeps me busy. I'm super artsy fartsy, so my job lets me explore that outlet on a daily basis. Lord knows I need to get that out of my system. I'm also a classically trained singer (having studied it in college along with theatre), and I sing with the Houston Symphony Chorus. I'm interested in a multitude of things, which definitely gives me a reason to blog. I mean, who wouldn't want to know my opinion or insight?
Aside from my artsy-ness, I consider myself a huge foodie. I'm talking obsessed. I'll try anything. I love cooking, dining, and trying new restaurants, especially ones off the beaten path! Side note: cupcakes are the perfect food. Seriously. I also consider myself a bit of a health nut. I'm into nutrition and fitness (although sometimes I get lazy on the fitness part... don't we all?). Even though I am waaaaaay into food, I try to develop ways to incorporate my favorite things in moderation and in a healthy way (aside from cupcakes). I love beauty products -- getting my hair done, trying new makeup and skincare. I try to take good care of myself, since it's the only "me" I have. I also love to travel. I've been many different places including South America and Europe, and I am hungry for more!
I'm married to a wonderful man named Greg O. We got married on July 25, 2009. He's a sports lovin', former New England boy working in the insurance industry. He's extremely intelligent, well-spoken, intuitive, and being from MA, he's hot and looks like a Kennedy. His logic and sporty-ness balance out my emotion and artsy-ness. He is the perfect man for me! He always makes me laugh and he is my best friend. We love to travel together. Greg and I have a new kitty named Dexter O. He's an Abyssinian, which is the coolest breed of cat ever!! Dexter is very much a part of our family. He is well-loved and we even take him on weekend trips because he is that awesome.
... I am a stay at home mom with two children who inspire me to be a better cook. I love using fresh ingredients, organic when possible, and I like to experiment with different tastes and textures. I try to keep my recipes lower in fat but still tasting great. My favorite hobbies are cooking, photography and blogging so I decided to combine them and create a recipe blog. It has been a wonderful way to organize my recipes and share them at the same time. A big thank you to my amazing husband Chad who has helped me become a better photographer.
