New Camera Fun!!!!!!!!

So....As I stated in a previous post, Amber sacrificed her body and got me a flashy new 10 Megapixel camera on Black Friday! Lotsa Love sis! I have been a picture taking fiend since I got it, but who can blame me? 10 Megapixels makes for a clear and pretty freaking awesome picture! I now have some cheesy photo montages for everyone to watch! Enjoy!

Oh....and I believe I've been tagged....Thanks Amber...Actually I love doing this stuff. Its always fun to learn random things! And I tag the first 8 people that read this too...hahahaha

The 8 Things Questionairre:

8 Television Shows I Enjoy: Okay, I actually don't watch television much, but I'll do my best!

1) John and Kate Plus 8- I could seriously sit and watch this show for hours and never be bored. I watch and wonder if I could do it..its so interesting to see how they make such a large family function, and function well!
2) Its me or the Dog- This is another show I could watch for hours. Its so funny to watch Victoria Stillwell tame unruly dogs in a matter of minutes that owners haven't been able to tame for years! I also have learned some great training tips and I have been able to help my sister with her dogs a little bit. I'm no Victoria, but its a work in progress!
3)Little House on the Prairie- All I can say is thank heaven's for the Hallmark Channel. I love this stuff, and you're guaranteed to laugh and cry atleast once during every episode!
4) The Hills- I know, I'm pathetic, right? WRONG! They're young, single, gorgeous,and they actually get to date...I get to live vicariously through them...LOL!
5) The Bachelor- the last few couples haven't had their fairy tale ending...however, it doesn't stop me from wanting to watch the drama unfold! A new season starts in January!!!! Wooohoooo!
6) Scrubs- I am so happy that they didn't end it and are moving to ABC, I love the random Dr.Dorian Daydreams...its always good for a laugh!
7) House- I know...not ANOTHER medical drama...that is what I thought when it first came out, but I freaking love it! I love the character of House, I love that he is cynical and hilarious in the process. Its always good for a laugh mixed with some good drama.
8) Masterpiece Theater- There is nothing better than curling up on a Sunday night to watch a classic tale unfold on the screen (the fact that there are usually hot British actors has almost nothing to do with it! LOL)

8 Things that Happened Yesterday:
1) I slept in!
2) I studied for the Final from Hades!
3) I proof read essays to take to the Final from Hades!
4) I lamented with my roommate about the Final from Hades!
5) I took the Final from Hades!
6) I went to my bestie Kimmie's house and dropped off her Christmas present! She is still gushing about it...those slippers are pretty cozy...I almost kept them for myself!
7) I went to a Christmas party
8) I drove my other bestie AngieRo home after the party and we laughed a lot!

Fever induced Zen

So....I'm sitting here in my office between students (some of them are taking a lot less time than they thought they would...) and I really really just want to go home and sleep for the next 20 years. All of them have remembered their lesson times so far, so that makes me feel like maybe they really care about this test which is good (or maybe they just care about the letter grade drop that I threatened if they signed up and didn't show up....either works, atleast they care.)

I am in a fever induced haze...the only thing getting me by right now is the thought that after 3 more students I can go home, crawl into bed, and curl up with my laptop to watch a movie until I fall asleep. I know that this won't happen, but its a nice thought. This won't happen because I have to teach the relief society lesson tomorrow, which should be highly amusing since I have like 1/3 of an actual voice and I have been attempting to cough up a lung for the last week! Oh well, God gave me the calling and he will help me have what I need so I can be successful, right?

The semester is almost over, and as long as I find time to re-write my opera paper, and study for the final exam, and write my annotated bibliography, and go to student juries, and administer the Voice in Class final, and buy treats for it too, and memorize the listening for the opera history final, I'll be home free. Hopefully this nasty fever induced haze won't get in the way. Hopefully this nastiness is about over!

Fevers have a way of making you zen out...I don't really care about anything right now...I just care about home, and sleep, and my bed...maybe its not such a bad thing, I could be a lot more stressed, but I don't even care. I already feel like what if I add to it by barely passing a few tests???

Ahhhh sleep...what a beautiful word...

Just shoot me now... next week is Final's week and I am officially freaking out! I thought that I had a handle on everything but apparently my Opera History paper is a sub-standard blow by blow attempt to discuss dramaticism in Massanet's Manon, and not only is my prospectus for my research class ALL WRONG, now I have to annotate the bibliography that I am tacking onto the end and write a research journal! Research???!!! I ask you, who has time to research when they have to rewrite 2 papers and study for a huge Opera History final with a CD chock full of listening examples!??!!

To add to my joy of joys, my graduation application is also due at the end of next week, which means I have to find time to waste to run around campus to collect signatures from various people that I've never met! Why can't it be like it is at ISU? They ask for your name, how many credits you have, you click submit and you're done! can't be that simple!

To top things off, I thought I'd be nice and offer some time to my Voice in Class students for extra help before the final, three or four of them had asked so I figured it wouldn't be that big of a deal....OH was I WRONG! Apparently, EVERYONE had to sign up. I'd hoped to have some slots for my private students to get them ready for juries, but they will have to wait for finals week and fit it in then. I am completely booked on December 6 from 9:30 in the morning until 5 PM that evening! I don't even get a lunch break because people decided to write in the noon and 12:30 slots since I didn't! I am going to die.....

So, will someone just put me out of my misery and shoot me now???? PLEASE????
