Tonight was the season premiere of The Bachelor and the network is now calling it “The Bachelor On the Wings of Love”. I have to disagree. I was a bit skeptical of their decision to cast Jake as the new bachelor and I am still unsure of how this season is going to turn out but I am a little disappointed in the women that were picked for the show. I was sad that the only 2 girls that I liked were sent home, and they were both pilots, which I found interesting. I just wanted to write a little bit about my impressions of the show and find out if the avid watchers out there agree. Mostly I am just procrastinating unpacking my stuff from home. I have returned to school and tomorrow is the first day of J-term, which should be interesting. I am taking a philosophy class that I have previously stated as a class that I do not need to take. It is philosophy of creation and evolution which I think will be pretty entertaining none the less. Since I am only taking one class and only working two days a week, I am hoping that I will have some time for recreational reading. I know that once spring semester starts, pathophysiology will be life, as I plan to start studying for it before the term even starts (it is reputably the hardest class in nursing school at PLU). I received some books for Christmas and I have a couple of books that I have had for quite some time that I have been wanting to read. The books I would like to read by the end of January are as follows:
1. Goodnight Nobody by Jennifer Weiner. I am about half-way finished with this book and I am loving it.
2. Catching fire by Suzanne Collins. This is the sequel to the Hunger Games and I have been waiting for the time to read this book.
3. Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford. My sister gave me this book for Christmas and she said that it was really good so I am also looking forward to this one.
4. Last but certainly not least, Love the One You’re With by Emily Griffin. This is the same author as Something Borrowed and Something Blue, which I really enjoyed so I am hoping this book will be great as well.
That is a lot to accomplish in four weeks but I think that I can do it. I plan to update you on my progress and give you a review of the books and what I thought of them.
I have so many things that I want to write about from my break but that will have to wait for another day (hopefully tomorrow) along with a report on how my first day back to reality went. Right now I need to get my booty motivated and finish unpacking…7:30 is going to come early tomorrow morning.

I am feeling good today! I have accomplished a lot of things and my stress level seems to be falling at a steady pace. I came home last night so that I could get some things that I left here, color my mom’s hair, do some laundry, and ditch my printer (which brings be to my day yesterday):

Since I have moved in, I have been trying to set up my printer. After 3 days, it still is not working. I tried EVERYTHING and everytime I would install it it would say the printer was ready and then when I tried to print something, my computer said that it was not connected to the printer. My tolerance of this started to boil over after reinstalling it about 10 times. So I had the boyfriend come over and check it out because he is very tech savy. He couldn’t figure it out either. So we decided to just google the error message that we were getting and came to find out that it was a vista problem (doy, I had a hunch that was the problem). So I was frustrated that vista had disappointed again and worried about what I was going to do about a printer. I read some solutions and appearantly there is some sort of driver that you can install to fix the problem. After trying to install this driver, I got a message from my antivirus saying that I had 3 high threat infections. Great. I scanned my computer and got everything cleaned out. Luckily there was no virus but it was too close of a call. So I decide just to bring my worthless-to-vista-printer home and figure something out. I then realized that I had purchased a pack of ink for this printer that cost me 50 bones. I took that back and then proceeded to pay 25 extra dollars for a vista compatable printer. So I finally got a printer that works and I do not have a virus.

In other news, I was looking for a curtain to put in my closet to cover it up. I just bought a sheet and transformed it into a curtain. So for 13 dollars, viola! I have a curtain that looks amazing! I am thrilled.

Today I have to attend dance practice for my cousin’s wedding. After this, I can return to school and get sleep for my first day of classes tomorrow! WOOOO!

I am a High School Musical lover and this song makes me happy. Even if you’re not an HSM fan, you should still watch it, enjoy!
