  I finally got to go to school this summer and didn’t do too shabby.  It has been 7 years since I was last into classroom and was very nervous and anxious about the outcome. For the summer semester, one class is two hours a day, four days a week for 6 weeks.

  I took 4 classes total.  English Composition I, Spanish I, Psychology and Concepts of Physical Activity (aka Adult P.E.) each resulting in an A.  I must say, I’m pretty proud of myself.  Starting off with a 4.0 GPA!  Image1 




Now on to my next obsession, galaxies.   Something that is so colorful, wild, and serene at the same time.  Take a look at what I’ve done so far.

Galaxy Painted Canvas Shoes

Cheap shoes for Walmart painted with acrylic paint mixed with fabric medium.






Painted Wine Glass from Wine Night

Typical wine glass painted with dishwasher safe glass enamel.


I’m sure this is just the beginning of this little love affair, just the same way I was obsessed with octopi, odd cupcakes and the color purple.

  • Move into our first HOUSE!

  • Learn to cook with something different. (lavender, squid ink, deer meat, ect.)
  • Carve something out of wood.

This is going to be the beginning of my latest hobby, or addiction (tomato, tomawto), and hopefully I won’t turn my back to it like I tend to do with most of sad attempts at writing.  I’m sure it will get easier the further I get along, but for now it will be a challenge.motivation quote   I plan to write about my everyday life, the bumps I come across and the small triumphs I achieve.   I plan to share my appreciation of other’s amazing talent while showing my attempts to improve my own.  Me and my family are working on buying our first home, and then my best friend and I are going to tie the knot by this fall, so that in it’s self will be entertaining to look back on.  Wish me luck, for the stress of becoming a responsible adult is hanging right above my head and I’m afraid that they forgot to give me my hard hat from the get go.  I promise to –try- not to vent about the negative things in life, but to celebrate only the positive!  

Enough of the boring talk, on to the FUN STUFF!!
