there has been none in the last few weeks. sorry about that kiddos! i was scrolling through some of my latest posts and realized things (although artistic and lovely) have just been pretty flat out boring.
nothing about life. nothing about what i've been learning. nothing charming, or witty...or fun.
talk about sad. geez!
well, i'll give you a quick rundown.

i am just stinkin' crazy busy.
nursing school is hard, in case you don't know! and working full time and going to school full time is even harder! i've had a test every class period but one in the last three weeks. AND tuesday night i had two! holey moley! i'm getting super good grades. mostly A's some B's (hey, can't win 'em all, right?!) my mom and dad are proud. i think if i brought some of my papers to their house, they'd put them on the fridge. hehe. psst...i've been tempted (but haven't given in) to put a few of them on my fridge here at home...shhh...don't tell. :)
i'm two classes down into my program. can't tell you how many i have left. quite a few. but hey...i'm finished with two, and that, my friend, is a good enough accomplishment to mention.

bad news...i've also struggled a bit with emotion stuff lately. life's just been a little hard with being tired and so so busy. kinda felt like i'm in a black hole. i've really had to be deliberate in moving my thoughts away from the negative and focusing on God. i went through a class at my church last year that taught to use HALT. don't make any major decisions and watch yourself and your actions when you are Hungry, Angry, Lonely or Tired. i've been paying attention to this a lot lately and also have been trying to stay in the Word. 1 peter has been super awesome!!! here's just a bit of what i've been clinging to:

ch 1 "3Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade—kept in heaven for you, 5who through faith are shielded by God's power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time. 6In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. 7These have come so that your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. 8Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy,9for you are receiving the goal of your faith, the salvation of your souls...13Therefore, prepare your minds for action; be self-controlled; set your hope fully on the grace to be given you...29But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light....38Above all, love each other deeply..."

ahhh. good stuff!
