A Short Letter To You!

Dear blog and faithful readers,

I apologize for leaving you hanging. I am still here! I have a lot to say, but not enough time to say it. I started taking 9 hours of summer classes and since then, have been a bit busy/tired. Right now I should be doing homework or napping, but I am making a point to write a little something. For now, I’ll tell you what I hope to blog about soon.

Pictures of my car (which I still need to take) + more about it!
My summer classes
My weekend at Table Rock Lake with Ryan’s family
Other things we’ve done on our summer list so far
The review of the product I received from CSN stores (haven’t even had a chance to use it yet)
The giveaways I’ve won recently
Launch my brand new blog design + URL! Watch for it!

Any other requests? I’ll try to write a real post very soon! For now, I gotta get moving on homework. Thanks for sticking around!

Always,

Mindy

My Movie Monday: Senior Goodbye

Today I am participating in My Movie Monday (yes, on a Tuesday) – a blog carnival hosted by Chrissy @ Traveling Light. Just link up with your video and you can participate too!

My Movie Monday at Traveling Light

The video I’m sharing is one I made three years ago, right before I graduated from high school. For my Comp class, we had to do a “Senior Goodbye” project. It could be anything – a poem, a speech, a slideshow- to say goodbye to our class. You could get as creative as you wanted and that’s what I tried to do. It took a little more work on my part, but it was worth it.

Since I lived and went to school here all my life (as did many of my classmates) I got out the home videos to see what I could come up with. We were supposed to include as many people in our Comp class that we could– and I realized that my idea would work because there were a lot of my classmates in the videos. So, once I watched the videos and found what I needed I had to transfer them to my computer from VHS (old school!)… start cutting clips… and putting the video together with iMovie. Not without some lessons and help from my knowledgeable boyfriend, of course. It was actually a fun project once I got going on the video! I put the song “Free Bird” as the background because it was our class song. I titled it “Class of 007: Forever Bonded.” (Get it??)

The end result was what I hoped for and I think my class really enjoyed it too.

Can you find me in the video? It’s not too difficult. ;o)


Wordless Wednesday: Mmm

Agh… lazy day turned into a depressing night. With some help though, I am better for now. Thank you.


Here’s a Wordless Wednesday because I’m not in a bloggy mood. And it is Wednesday.



Ryan and I share a love …. of ice cream cake. :) Mmmm.

Pre-test anxiety

[This post is an example of what happens when you are obligated to post something every day in November, NaBloPoMo, even when you aren’t feeling bloggy.]

Don’t get mad or anything…


But today I won a $45 off $100 Old Navy coupon giveaway.

If it makes you feel any better, I gave it to my boyfriend because I don’t have the opportunity to use it by Thursday.

Partly because I live in the middle of no where and have to travel an hour or two to go shopping.

Mostly because I have a history test on Thursday. And I need to study. If I would’ve been studying as much as talking about studying, I’d be fine. But I’m not.

I’ve never had so much trouble trying to study! I realize that it is ridiculous that this is a freshman history class and the only class I have to study for this semester, yet I can’t study. I’m not sure what’s wrong with me. It’s sooo overwhelming and is giving me so much anxiety that when I sit down to study, I freeze up. Proof of stress: I have two cold sores as of yesterday.

And to top if all off, I’ve been chewing a ton of ice today (because of stress)… which triggered major wisdom tooth pain shooting in my mouth. That’s just lovely after having a nightmare about surgery last night.


Ugh. Bad day, bad weekend. I feel like a huge whiner, but anxiety and depression will do that to you. We don’t get along.

I just want Friday to be here so I can cuddle with my boyfriend and forget about my problems for a moment. <3

Someone tell me something good!
