School days…

School has started this week. It has been a long week as well. I’m in school for most of the afternoon, which pretty much sucks. The only thing that’s good about it is I can at least walk my boyfriend to class, and work on my homework during my break time.

In school I am taking Accounting 3 (managerial accounting). I find it fun and interesting.  I’m also  taking CIS 30 (Computer integrated Science). I can already tell that is going to be a fun class. I’ve already learned a few things from both courses.

In other news, I’m (slowly, but surely) am working on a few things. But, I’m unsure when I have a product worth anything. I scrapped the writing project I started at the beginning of July, because I lost inspiration and my muse. They “died” when I realized I’ve made a personal mistake.

Summer: A Look Back

School is starting in a week, and summer has been a blast.

  • This summer I celebrated my first anniversary with my boyfriend. We had gone out and have a lunch date at Dave and Busters. The place had opened a month earlier. Then we celebrated by playing a few games at the resturant, and with Recess Ice Cream.
  • We’ve gone and visited my grandparents back in July and I got roughly around $100.  Chris and I were going to use it to go to the California state fair. But, we decided against it. Instead, we decided to go see a movie (“Despicable Me”) and hangout.
  • Rex moved out of the house again. I had more respect for him when he lived in Irvine. But, now…
  • I’m dying to see my friends, and go mini-golfing with them, since it will be the first time I ever went and Jenny says we should.

Well, School starts… in one week. I have a CIS class, and Accounting 3 class. I can’t wait till school begins, but I also know I’m going to have to work my butt off so I can get my certificate at the end of 2011. So, there’s that.

A Scrapbook Story

I know my anniversary with my boyfriend has come and gone, and one might think I would be writing about that. But, it isn’t really want to talk about. A few months prior to my anniversary I was frantic looking for an idea for a gift to give my boyfriend. I started asking my girlfriends what to give him. They had some very good ideas, but I wanted to make something more personnel so I looked online. What I found was something that I could grasp my mind around: a scrap book.

I knew spring break was coming up, and I realized I had no clue how I was going to do this. Then, some relief came. While looking around at Ross a week before said vacation I found a scrapbook starter kit (for around  $10). I decided to use this as a starting point.  Looking up online, I found some instruction and used them.

And, then as the weeks went on, and we started having problems in our relationship I decided to fiercely work on the scrapbook– not knowing if this was the best way to go. I mean, there were times were I just wanted to stop and hid the book, and others were I just thought about finishing it. In the end, I finished the scrapbook (and was pretty proud of it).

On June 16, 2010 I showed my scrapbook to my boyfriend. I believe it’s brought us closer together and I still have it, because I would like to add more to it. We have only been dating for a year.

***Anyway my question for the readers out there is: What did  you give your boyfriend on your first year anniversary?***
