Word potpourri

I went to the beach yesterday, in preparation for my OR trip (all of the OR people will be jealous of my gorgeous tan :) ); I haven't seen such a perfect beach day in a long time. We got there at 10:30, so there weren't too many other people there yet; the sky was blue with not a cloud in sight, and it was already really warm. Mmm. There's nothing quite like lying on warm sand in the sun. We only stayed for a few hours, but I got some more good color. Jamie says I smile more when I'm tan, which I guess makes sense. I feel pretty. :)
I've been trying to get my life totally organized so that I feel ready to leave on Friday, but I'm not sure if that's going to happen or not. I didn't get the chance to get a pedicure, so that left me rather miffed; I had to do my own last night, with a little help from J. It's funny how you take little things, like painting your toenails, for granted; it seems like it's really easy to me, but J was having SUCH a hard time. It was pretty entertaining. Anyway-I got my clothes packed, I got the house picked up, if not cleaned, so I'm kinda feeling like I might be on top of things. Then this morning I made sure I had my CD player with me so I could listen to music on the train; however, I failed to notice that I didn't have any CDs with me. Oh, well.
This month is going by so fast, and yet so slowly. I can't wait for Friday!

So I registered for my fall classes today, and I will be taking English and Nutrition. I'm also trying to talk Jamie into taking a social dance class with me (swing, tango, etc.), which would be a lot of fun. I'm such a dork; I'm SO EXCITED FOR SCHOOL! Fall semester is the best. I love buying school supplies when they're all on sale. :)

Another great reason to be a vegetarian. :)

I was so excited to get out of school for the summer, and oddly enough, now I'm all excited to go back. Hmm. Well, this fall I'm going to try to take English (about time-it's always full), so I think that's what I'm looking forward to. I've been at PCC long enough now that I'm one of the first people to register for classes-sad, but still pretty nice, since I can get into pretty much any class I want. I'm putting off taking math for as long as I possibly can, which probably isn't such a great idea. However, I'm justifying it in this way: while I take English, I also have to take a writing lab. This is the first semester that it's actually been available at a good time for me, so I figure I should jump at the chance while I have it. There are always evening math classes. :)

Where Does Your Beauty Lie?
Your Beauty lies in Innocence; pure, sweet and child-like. You most likely look far younger than you are and your smile would brighten up anyone's day. Seen as naive and sheltered, you can be ignorant at times, but for the most part, it's simply your reputation preceding you. You are most likely rather aware of the realities of life. You are extremely good natured and trustworthy. By the same token, you are a bit too trusting. Be careful, few are as honest and open as you. You might seem girlish still with a love of dresses, ponies, and things most might deem you "too old for". But this doesn't bother you. You enjoy your youth and are going to make it last. After all, you are only as old as you feel.
Some Things That Represent You:
Element: Light, Wind Animal: Kitten Color: White, Pink, Pastels Song: Beautiful Soul by Jesse McCartney Expression: Innocent Smile
Gemstone: Diamond Mythological Creature: Unicorn Planet: Moon Hair Color: White Eye Color: Silver
Quote: "A stranger is just a friend you haven't met yet."

What Kind of Angel are You?
Congrats! You're a Pure Angel! Angels, as far as most of them go, are all compatabile creatures, but Pure ones simply are symbols of God. Pure Angels always appear when a child is born, when a rainbow is seen, or when someone shares their first kiss. They never grow old, and can appear in the shape of a naked woman with white, bold wings. Pure angels are the carriers of god, and show their love to everyone in the world.

Which Pet are You?
You are a gorgeous Faerie Lenny! You have a pretty little soul and you love life! You enjoy everyday and have lots of friends. Plus, you throw a cool party!

Which Proud Princess are You?
You are a perfect princess! You are every queen's dream; amazingly beautiful, a joy for the spotlight and your dream is to get married and have a proud royal family. If any paparazzi come after you, one wink and an innocent smile is all it takes to dumbfound them. You have an immense sense of duty and would never go against the wishes of your family. You spend your time flicking through magazines looking for the latest clothes and jewellery. This doesnt mean youre an airhead though! Behind your striking appearance lies an amazing mind. You have the ability to conjure up the wittiest sayings and are immensely intelligent. Such a combination of intelligence, creativity, power and beauty is often intimidating to those around you.

I've been listening to a lot of Nicole Nordeman lately-I've had the "Woven and Spun" album for a couple of years, but I never got around to it until recently, and I love it. It's great in the car, as background music while I clean, etc.
Jamie and I went to Laughlin for Memorial Day weekend. Nevada is a weird place. I'm fascinated by it while also being completely repulsed. It's so dirty and sparkly at the same time.
