I have a story…as promised from yesterday’s blog. A couple of weekends ago I was getting frustrated because I still have not received my degree from the community college that I graduated from in June and they told me that I would get it four months after the completion of my classes; it has now been six months. I was looking through paperwork from the school and I decided that I should look at my transcript online to make sure that I actually did get the degree I thought that I applied for. Sure enough, my degree was posted, and even better, it was posted as a direct transfer degree. This means that when my classes got transferred to PLU I wouldn’t have to take any general university requirements. Unfortunately, for some reason PLU did not have me listed as having a direct transfer degree and they told me that I had to take 5 more classes. So I was already registered to take a class during J-term for one of the requirements to get it out of the way and I was so excited when I found out I didn’t have to take it. To make a long story short, I carried out so much correspondance with the school that pretty much went as follows: SPSCC sent my transcripts before my degree was posted so I would have to request a new official transcript, I did this and the school still has not received it (one frustrating thing), in the place of the class I am taking I was going to take a phsychology class so that I could get a minor but they were all full (pretty much a lose-lose situation there), if I did drop the class and the school received my transcript I could do two things: pay $450 for food and not take a class but just work or pay $200 for the late fee to cancel my room and stay home for an extra month and not work (also a lose-lose situation). There has been so much fuss and stress over this (and I am sure there is so much to the story I have left out as I have been dealing with this for the last 2+ weeks) that I just decided to keep the class because J-term tuition is free, I could still work, and then when PLU gets my transcript I would be fine and I would gain some new knowledge from the philosophy class that I am taking (I am trying to look at the silver lining). SOOOO that is the story.

In other more exciting news, tomorrow we are having our family chrismas party and I am really excited; it is my favorite part of Christmas!!!
This is last years Christmas tree…I just wanted something Christmasy on here though! And I won’t be such a butt about posting pictures on here so I will post some pictures from the partay tomorrow! Hope you are having a great weekend!

is my middle name right now. I have been packing for my move this Thursday and I have a long ways to go. My biggest problem is that I want to take more than I have room for. It is very difficult to pick what I want to leave behind. Packing my clothes with be hell.

In other news, my cousin is getting married on the 12th and I have a lot to do for that as well. All of the bridesmaids are doing a dance at the reception and I have not been practicing at all. I know about the first 10 seconds….I have a ways to go.

School starts on the 8th, thank goodness I have all of my paperwork done but until the wedding is over, I will not be comfortable with prioritizing my tasks for the first week of school. Although I cannot wait to start, I am also dreading it because I know I have so much to do other than school.

I went on vacation last week and I am too lazy to blog about that right now and post pictures. I will do that later as well post some things that I have been meaning to post for the last couple of months (oh I am terrible). I will say that vacation was amazing and so much fun.

I will be posting pictures of my room once I get it all together…I can’t wait!
