It's back! I'm going to start posting random silly love songs that I want to share. Here's a great song that I really love.

I am so very excited that this is my last week of classes. Then just one more week for finals and school is officially out! I have read so many books this semester for my regional literature class and though I did like some of them they would not have been books I would have personally chosen. I have started a personal reading list and here are the first 3 books I have on there.
Water for Elephants
I just saw the movie yesterday and let's just say I'm going to watch it again next weekend! It was absolutely amazing! I wanted to read the book first but I didn't have time but I'm really excited to read it. I think it will be really good even though I was told there are some differences from the movie. I'm not particularly picky about those things though. I consider books and movies to be completely different obviously and I think that people dwell too much on whether they did a 100% accurate portrayal or not. I don't care if they change a few things. This movie was amazing. I recommend that everyone go see it. Even if Rob Pattinson isn't your favorite (I love him) who doesn't love the circus?!
I don't know too much about this book but I know the movie is coming out soon so I'd like to read it before I watch the movie. I'm all for girly stories!
I Was Told There'd Be Cake
I don't know much about this book either but I got it from a dear friend and I have been dying to read it. I'm sure it will be a good one.
I hope some of these books make your lists. I'll try to do some book reviews after I read them. What do you have on your summer reading list? Sci-fi thrillers, love stories, biographies? Leave a comment and let me know! Maybe I'll find some more books for my list!

I've needed two of these today. I've been so tired lately. I think it's the stress of finals and final projects being due. I have turned in 1 research paper and a photography portfolio so far. One more paper to go. I'm about halfway done with it. I also had an encounter with a rather rude teacher today. I did like him until then. It was dumb. Luckily, I have some absolutely amazing friends (near and far, very far) and an amazing family and husband to make me feel better. Only 2 more weeks of school! Here's a bit of an update on that. After this semester I'm taking a break, don't know how long, from school. I have been going for 3 years now and I've changed my major 3 times which means I'm still at least 2 years from any degree I could want. Funny thing is, I can't figure out what I want. So, I've decided to take a break from college and focus on things I love like baking, crafting and learning about things I'm genuinely interested in like nutrition and extreme couponing (yes, I'm serious). Also, of course, catching up on some reading! I've been dying to read Water for Elephants and the new Pioneer Woman book. I just haven't had time with all of the reading for school and the assignments. I've realized lately that I've put so many things on the back burner because of school and it's really not getting me anywhere. I am so lucky to have an absolutely amazing husband that can provide for us and I don't have to work. I'm hoping that someday I can find something to help out in the financial department but I just can't figure out what I want to do. I'm hoping that once Summer starts I can begin learning about myself and growing. I'm very excited and of course, I'll be back to blogging more regularly as well! I'm most excited about that. I've made a few really good friends through blogging and I can't wait to meet more awesome people! I hope you are all just excited as I am for things to come!

Thanks for all the encouraging words about starting this little venture. Without your support I probably wouldn't have the nerve to do it!
