I'm back!

Just checking in! I've been gone for a while!

I had a wonderful spring break. It was so relaxing and great to just be with my family.  I needed to get away from school more than you will know!  On my way home, I stopped about an hour away to see my friend Jennah! She is moving to Florida in a couple of weeks and I don't know the next time I will get to see her!  It was nice to catch up.

I was so glad that my dad was able to be home while I was.  The night before I left, he left for a business trip to Malaysia.  Speaking of my dad, today is his birthday! Happy Birthday daddy! Even though your birthday is already over in Malaysia, I hope you are still celebrating! I love you!

Ever since coming back to school.... did I mention that it took me ELEVEN hours to get back to Oklahoma? It should have only taken me 6, but I was stuck in traffic for over 5 hours!... anyways. Ever since coming back, I haven't been able to sleep.  I was spoiled with my bed at home.  I constantly wake up every 2-3 hours here with a sore back and a stiff neck.  I have had a sore throat this whole week too! It has been a little frustrating but I am still counting my blessings.

And, speaking of counting..... I am already counting down the days until Easter Break! haha.. It isn't that I dislike school, but I do miss my privacy, space, comfort, family, food, sleep.... you know. So, I cannot wait until April 21st! Only 4 weeks, 16 hours and 6 minutes until I am on the road to home! (I have a very specific countdown on my phone :D)

I would love to update more, but I have a biology test in the morning (gag) and this update was just a tiny break away from learning about G3P's and CAM cycles. --How is this going to assist me in life again? oh yes... counting my blessings.

I do have a lot to be thankful for and I don't want my fears and worries to cloud over those blessings!

Much love!
