Photo Roundup!!!

I know I have been MIA, these 16 units are kicking my butt this semester. After next week I will have 3 more weeks left of school! I am so ready for it to be over already. One thing that I have done is gotten better at not at not procrastinating. Every semester I get a little better at it, but as a result, my time is a bit short and when I have downtime its probably being spent lounging around the house, being lazy.

At any rate, here are a couple of photos that I have taken over the last several weeks. I have lost a few pounds (hope to loose more and build some serious muscle), went to Las Vegas (so much fun!) and recently conducted my first experiment :) Anyways, really not too much to tell. Post more photos later.

Camera Play!

Its been forever since I pulled out my dslr, so I had to dust it off and take some photos! I need to get back into the swing of things. Seriously. I have been slacking these last few months and I don't like it at all. So cheers to the new year, fresh starts and moving on up.

And cheers to some very random photos!
Always faithful no matter what

2015 Goals

2014 has been a year of ups and downs, but I made some serious progress. So here we are, 2015, a brand new year and a fresh start. This is the year that will be the turning point for me. I am just going to keep 2015 simple and make it a year of working on better ME.

Here are my 2015 goals:

1. End my spring and fall semester with nothing less that a 3.5 GPA
2. Stay organized and use a planner
3. Volunteer at the VA Hospital
4. Save money
5. Be more outgoing and go to more meetup events
6. Work out consistently
7. Laugh more
8. Travel

What about you guys? What are your goals?

December Wrap Up

December sure has been a busy month for me. I enjoyed life, finished out the semester successfully with a 3.55 GPA and I have been making strides towards a better future. I most certainly have a lot of things to be thankful for and going into 2015 I want to continue to move forward and do better. This post will be short, but come 2015, I am looking forward to exploring, trying out new things and sharing them with you as well :)

Now, here are a couple of random photos taken this month! I got to go back to Texas and spend some time with family and I even got to attend my first military ball. December has been a great month!!!

Finals Are Over And Now I Have A Life!!!

I have to admit, this semester almost got me. The last month was so busy I barely had time for myself. But, I won't complain! Its for the future after all. Now, I just have to wait for my final grades and then I can breath. I was really stressing about the finals for my psychology class, because the grade is based on the scores of only 4 tests and those tests to me, weren't easy. Instead of just memorizing information, theses tests were based on conceptual knowledge so it was sort of easy to not do well if you didn't understand the topic fully. I found out I got a 90 on that last test which was great because I was shooting for an 85. And that is not me short changing myself…I was just being realistic based off my scores for the previous exams. And then there was the stress from my geology final. Geology should be easy right? Well it should be if the professor tells you to study the last 4 chapters covered and the study the first 3 tests. I went to take the final after doing that only to find that he used NONE of the questions from the first 3 tests and they were completely different. Almost fell out in the classroom. After a few days of worrying I emailed him and he told me I was 1 point away from a B, but I still got an A in the class which at the end of the day, is the only thing that matters. Talk about relief! Now, once all my grades post I will know its real. 2 more semesters until I graduate!!!!

Anyways, I also won't act like I was only focused on school because that is far from the case. There was definitely some fun in there :) I went out on lots of dates, completed a 10 mile hike, went ice skating and this past weekend I went to an amusement park. I am kind of bad with taking photos, but I promise I am getting better!!! And now, that school is out, I can focus more time on blogging and I have a couple of things that I want to get into.

Photo time!
