Finals...Finally OVER!

So as you can see with the title of my post, finals are over, and so that means that I am much more happy than I was...but that doesn't mean the end of school...not for a while. I start summer classes on Monday, and hopefully a new job!!!!

Tuesday (5/13) was my last day with the CSU Computer Science Dept. and it's probably a very good thing I don't work there anymore. It was really draining on me to be around all that negativity anyway, and I guess some people got their wish with my leaving, and others are sad, but I've come to grips with it I guess. I have an interview on Monday with the Colorado Case Company, they make cases for instruments, as far as I can tell. I guess we'll see if that works out. If it doesn't, I'll try for a job where Jon's mom and sister work, and I'll have to find another job for the school year, which will be hard, but it will be income for the summer at least.

As for summer classes, I'm taking Art 100 for the first four weeks of summer, and then Speech 200 for the next four. Then I have 6 weeks off till classes start again in the fall. These classes are just core curriculum classes that I need to get done so I can finish off my schooling in December!!! Woot!

Finals went...okay. I was way stressed and spent A LOT of time studying and writing papers...I only had two tests, but three papers, so it was pretty intense. I went home in the middle of the week, even though I still had a paper due. Jon went with me and it was awesome. It was so good to see my family, especially Courtney, who I never get to see, and I'll get to see her again in August.

My sister graduated from Fruita Monument on Wednesday (5/14). It was good to be home for that, but way too short. I hate that stinking paper for making me come back so early, but it was okay, Jon had a final on Thursday anyway. I don't really know how he did on his finals (nor do I know how I did on mine) but I think he got better grades than me, which is what I get for being engaged to a smart person. :P

The last piece of news sister is pregnant! Don't worry, it's Courtney. :P I wanted to post about it sooner, but she hadn't told some people yet, so I decided to wait, but I am super excited. I can't wait to be an aunt! I've wanted to ever since Courtney got engaged. :) This is going to be a very exciting year.

To end, I shall share one of our engagement photos with all of you... :) Enjoy!!

Hello There!!!

So this is my first time blogging, and I figured, since my sister Courtney insisted that I get a blog (j/k), I would try it out.

At first I didn't think that I had anything to blog about. Most of the things in my life I think I'd rather keep quiet, and just write them in my journal, which I do a lot of. But quite honestly, my life has changed a little, and I don't have time to call all of my friends and relatives and fill them in on my life. Since it will just get busier, I've decided to start this blog.

The first big news of my life is....I'm engaged!!
This is a very happy and exciting time for me, and for my fiance Jon. We plan to be married August 8th, 2008 in the Denver Temple. Jon asked me to marry him on April 11th of this year right outside the Temple...and obviously I said yes!

This picture is one we took ourselves right after he proposed. I knew for a while that we wanted to get married, and for about a week that it would definitely happen someday, but Jon surprised me with his own unique timing. :)

We'll keep you updated on all of the wedding plans, but everything is a little on hold at the moment because of finals...this week and next...eeek!!

So yeah, so far so good. More to come, probably after finals are over. :D
