As you can tell, i never really quite stayed on time with the 30-day-blog-challenge and today is the last day of it. It was really fun, although it became more of a chore at the end. But i hope you got to know me a little bit more because of it. So here are the last days few days that I had missed.

Day 27 - A picture of you last year and now and how you have changed since then?

I haven't changed much in my outward appearance. However, I think i've become more mature. Each year I am happier and happier. I'm definitely growing, and I really know what I want out of life. The little stones along the path have also made me a stronger person. I love the person that I am today, but also there's still a lot of room for improvement. 

Day 28 - Your favorite movie
Gosh, i have too many. But I think definitely "The Proposal" is right at the top. Love that movie and totally recommend it! So cute and super funny!

Day 29 - Something you could never get tired of doing
Reading and shopping. I could do that everyday if only I had the time...

Day 30 - A photograph of yourself today + three good things that happened in the past.
i know sorry for the bad quality but i just took this pic a few seconds ago with my web cam. 

3 good things that have happened in the past...
1. I was accepted into the Nursing Program, I was lucky! 
2. I've met a lot of awesome pretty bloggers and i only hope to get to know even more. thanks you guys for taking the time to read my thoughts even when i'm just rambling and for commenting. you guys seriously make my day and you're not taken for granted.
3. My boyfriend. He's one of the best things that has happened to me. 

Stylish Award

Well, i received this lovely stylish blogger award from Kayla over at Stethoscopes and Dog Tags.  Thank you Miss! I just received this ward yesterday at my other blog also so I'm just going to keep the same people I tagged from my last one. 

 There are 4 duties to perform to accept this award:
1.  Thank and link back to the person who awarded you this award
2.  Share 7 things about yourself
3.  Award 15 recently discovered great bloggers
4.  Contact these bloggers and tell them about the award

1. I've never drank alcohol, or smoked. 
2. I sometimes sing in the shower.
3. I smile and laugh too much. Some of my friends tell me I have an eternal smile.
4. Hopefully by 2012 I'll graduate as a Registered Nurse. I'm thinking that I'm going to go for my BS in Nursing after that.
5. I eat too much candy. Every time I go to the store getting a sucker, chocolate, or any little piece of candy is a must.
6. I spend too much money on clothes.
7. One of my biggest fears is failing in life. I'm scared that I won't become the person I want to be. And of not achieving the goals I've set for myself.

I'm passing this award onto:

Day 24 - A photo of something that means a lot to you

My beliefs and my Savior.



Just a quick little post about school.... 
I got my grades back today and guess what!? 
I got straight A's! 
But what makes me even happier is that I got an A in that English class I hated so much. Remember how much I whined about it here? I'm one little happy camper! I never have to take English again.
Anyway, I finished the semester about 1 week and half ago and had my Nursing orientation last Friday. I finally am all registered for my nursing classes! I'm so so nervous to start nursing school in January but I know it's going to be great. :)

Day 22: Letters

Day 22 - A letter to someone who has hurt you recently

Nobody has hurt me recently...
well, I don't even remember the last time I've been hurt. 
I guess I can skip this one, and it's a good thing cause these kind of letters are no fun.

Have a FANTASTIC day!


Gotta Keep Up

Day 18- Something you crave a lot
I can never have enough of these.

Day 19 - Another picture of yourself.

Day 20 - The meaning behind your blog name.
That's easy. I was accepted into the Nursing Program in October and will be starting next month. I wanted a place to record all about my experiences as a student in Nursing School and so that's how the name of this blog came to be. Even after I graduate, which will be in like 2 more years, I plan to keep updating this blog because really, you never stop learning. In life, you'll always be a student.

Day 21 - A photo of something that makes you happy.

The Sunshine.


Motivational Monday: Believe

Just believe.

In yourself.
You are beautiful.

It's been a while since we've gotten our family pictures done. This last one we took is from back in 2007.

My mom still looks the same. I still look the same, I think. But my brothers are so much taller and all manly now, see. Oh and I'm the oldest from us 3.

Catching up

Sorry guys, I got a little behind on the blog challenge. So bear with me because I'm going to catch up the last 5 days in 1 post.

Day 7 - Your dream wedding
I've always dreamed of getting married in the temple. Or a ceremony by the beach...I want to have the cutest dress ever. One thing that MUST be on my wedding is a Mariachi band. It'll be a traditional Mexican wedding reception, lots of delicious Mexican food, lots of dancing, but sorry no drinking.

Day 8 - A song to match your mood
Just yesterday I lost my friend. And this song, There You'll Be, by Faith Hill has been on my mind. I love you Karen.

Last night I had to fill up my tank so gasoline is what I last purchased.

I love Italian food. 

Day 11 - What's in your make up bag?

A lash curler, Maybelline mascara, blush, Clinique foundation, Mary Kay moisturizer. I love Mary Kay. I think they have the best long lasting make up colors. 

The end.

Motivational Monday Quote

I got this quote from Elise's blog. A really cute blog.
Elise actually loves Mondays! 

Day 6: Smokey the Bear

Day 6 - A photo of an animal you'd love to keep as a pet

Bears are my favorite animals next to dogs. I would love to keep them as a pet. If only it wasn't for the fact that they would probably try to eat me... 



Day 5: 2 years ago

Day 5 - A photo of yourself two years ago

2 years ago. 2008. I was a senior in high school.

This will be probably one of the few times you'll see me with straight hair, since I have natural curls and don't like to take the time straightening it.


Day 4: To My Best Friend

Day 4 - Your favorite photograph of your best friend.

This lady is by far the strongest and nicest lady I have ever known. Work is where we met. She was my manager, and I never imagined that she would end up becoming one of the most important people in my life. She's been there when I've needed her. She's heard my ups and downs. She's been my personal cheerleader while I've been in school. Always believed in me and in my potential in times when I've doubted myself. She has been my life coach. My counselor. My inspiration. My family. My best friend. She's an example of the kind of person I want to be. I want to have her motive and self-drive. Her positiveness about life. Her strength through trials. She's selfless and is willing to give her time to others. And I've also seen her be a great mom and nana... There just aren't enough words to express all she is. She's just an amazing person, and I love her so much. Karen, if you're reading this, thank you for being there for me. You have no idea of the impact you've had in my life. I love you. Know that you will ALWAYS have a special place in my heart and that I'll never forget you. You are my best friend.

Sorry Tiff, I kinda stole this pic from you.
Karen on the left and her lovely daughter on the right.


Day 3: A First Date

Day 3 - Your idea of the perfect first date


Riding horses along the beach... Looking at the sunset (sigh, i'm getting dreamy here). 

Wait, lets rewind. I don't live close to the beach... but we do have mountains in Utah. So a real perfect first date would include driving up to the Y (a mountain in Provo, Utah). Enjoying the beautiful view as we also talk and get to know each other. There would have to be lots of laughing involved.  Then we'd go latin dancing. It's so much fun! You have no idea how much I adore dancing. I get lost in the music and completely forget about my worries. And after the dance is over, we'd finish the night off with an ice-cream stop. Oh and no kiss. I don't kiss on first dates.


Day 2: Food

Day 2 - A photo of something you ate today.
Jamba Juice!
I recommend their Mango-a-go-go. It's soooo good!
I'm so glad we have Jamba Juice in my school...

And for lunch, I had Jimmy John's which are like the best sandwiches ever. :)


Day 1 of 30 blog challenge

Day 1 - A photo of yourself and a description of how your day was.

this is a pic taken from my webcam. 
i wish i had a good camera and was good at taking pictures, 
like many other talented bloggers i know.

My day is wonderful so far! I only had 1 class this morning, First Aid. I love that class. Went to work... Played air hockey with one of my friends and lost miserably. 0-7. Embarrassing. Now you know that if you ever need an ego boost just play me a game of air hockey and that should do the trick. ;) Now I'm just sitting here waiting for my boyfriend to pick me up so we can go eat and watch our Spanish soap operas. Yes. I watch soaps. Don't laugh.
