As you read this I am either A) waiting to pounce on my registration for classes at 8am when it opens, B) frantically trying to input my class selection, praying I can get my classes, or C) completely exhausted from inputting my classes and hitting submit. But really I hope that D) happened, meaning everything went smoothly and I am officially registered for my first semester freshman year classes. It just keeps getting more real. I'm keeping myself from actually counting down how many days I have left. I want to know, but I don't. If I did count I think I would just stress myself out and feel like I had to rush and do everything right this moment. Just take it slow, each day at a time.
All of this "blog design" stuff is getting to me though. I keep waffling back and forth between 2 designers and keep sending them sporadic emails. But then I start thinking that I really don't have the money and I should just move to self-hosting and figure out a minimal design myself. But then I'm worried I'll mess something up. And then I keep seeing that my "media" usage on this here wordpress.com blog is at 70% and has a big glaring red X by it, warning me my time is almost up! What happens when I run out of space? Will I not be able to post anymore besides just words? Ugh! I need to get this figured out ASAP! I do know though that I want to get hosted with Host Gater and not Bluehost. Bluehost always seems like it goes down so I think the Gater is better 😉 Anyway...I think I need to talk to my dad now about helping me pay for this all...

A few things I loved about my week or am grateful for:
+ Can I tell you about the best thing I tasted all week? Honey Cinnamon Nut Thins! O boy. These babies taste like French Toast...no joke! Totally gluten-free, soy-free, and vegan (if your not strict with honey). These are brand new from Blue Diamond as part of their "Bee Cause We Care"
Campaign and I am in love! They also have a new Honey Mustard which I almost bought, but they will have to wait until my next grocery shopping 😉
+ This is random, but I can floss my front bottom teeth like a normal person again! I had a thin metal bar put on the back of my teeth after I got my braces off to keep my teeth extra secure from shifting (even though I wear a retainer at night). But I finally got that damn thing taken off this week since I will be getting my wisdom teeth out on the 24th! With the wisdom teeth out and still wearing my retainers at night, my teeth will hopefully be fine without that bar anymore! It was so annoying and kept breaking off in on spot. If I tried to floss, the floss would get stuck or I would rip the glue off.
+ You know what I'm really grateful for? That it's summer and it's sunny and warm. Really that's all I need. I just wish time would go a little slower and things would stay right in this place for awhile longer.
So tell me:
+ Should I just put up a theme myself and do my own "design", or spend $700 on a designer? Please help me! Know of any cheap but really good designers?
+ What will you be up to this weekend? I have no idea yet, but probably just more of the same. Relaxing and savoring the lazy days of summer.
+ What is once recipe you've been dieing to make? I have a bunch rolling around in my head right now 😉
