Crafty Pay It Forward

So I have seen this idea on a few places (like this blog, facebook, etc.) and have been playing with the idea of doing it as well. And well I have finally decided to do it.

So this is what is up, be one of the first three people to comment on this post and I will give you a sweet little something. It will be made especially for you!

The fine print:
  • Within a year (it'll be sooner than later), I’ll create something unique to share with the first three people to comment on this post.
  • But, in order to receive your present you have to play along. Spread the love on your own blog promising to send a little special something to the first three people who comment on your post.
  • You get 72 hours to re-post, or I’ll have to move on to the next person.
Ok. So these are the rules set forth by somebody somewhere back in the links of links of links.
So please leave me a comment about whatever and don't forget to Pay It Forward! :)
<3 Hugs!

I must be crazy....

It is true...I have to be crazy.  I am going to try and build my own website to sell my jewelry...

See, I told you I am crazy.

I have decided I need to do something with all the bead work that I have been doing, and selling it on etsy hasn't been working. So I am gonna give it a go on my own. So I decided to try my hand at my own website to sell it...I have no idea how this is gonna work, but I am gonna try...


hahaha Bit over dramatic?

My Semester

Okay, so I haven't posted in a long time. Supposedly that was partially so I could focus on school and my new family (aka the boy) since I got married three and a half months ago.  Unfortunately that didn't really help...

So this is the low down of this last semester:

I took 12 credits consisting of a College Reading class (study stills more or less), a Math for the Real World class, an Old Testament class, and a Multivariable Calculus class (because my school has to be different and not offer Calculus 1-4).  It started out fantastic. I was doing all my assignments, going to all my classes (didn't miss one the whole semester!), doing okay on my quizes and such. Then I got sick for like two weeks.  I was having serious difficulty focusing and just keeping food down, let alone understanding the new calculus.  I started slacking a bit in my Old Testament class, and got behind in my calc class. I did kind of okay catching up on the next section, but from there it just went down hill. Terribly down hill. It never seemed like I got that far behind. However, since we only got grades in three things and they were practically never updated, the only time I got to see how I was truly doing was on the tests, and most did badly on that. 

Then two weeks before the end my teacher finally updated the grades...I was failing. It was gonna be really hard to get my self up to the C I needed to graduate. But my teacher felt like it would be possible, barely so, but possible.  So I dug in hard again...and I just wasn't getting it, not to the point I needed to be at to pass.  I had missed too much from the middle of the semester (still hasn't hit me really that it is over, so the middle of the semester doesn't seem that long ago).  Then I got my test three back, I got a 5 out of 50... I have only two quizes (basically a take home test) and the final now to bring up my grade. It isn't gonna happen. Even if I do really well on these (extraordinarily unlikely) I will still get maybe a D. I needed a C to graduate.

And since I am currently on probation, this failing grade will put me on academic suspension. 

What does that mean?

       -I will not be able to register for/attend classes for two consecutive semesters (including--thank goodness--my off-track semester). So I will be able to go back next Spring semester.
       -I will loose my job at the on campus observatory. Which means I am searching for a new job.  So if anyone knows anything for around Rexburg, please let me know.
       -I get to retake my calculus class....oh goody.
       -Yeah that all pretty much sums up what is gonna happen...

The good side is that I got an A in my Math for the real world class (my competitive nature kicked in a bit since Jim was also in the class...He still got a better grade than me...), an A- in my college reading class, and a C+ in my Old Testament class!!! :D I was pretty excited about that. Granted Jim did get four As and two Bs, but who is comparing right? ;)

I am really excited for him and very proud of him. He has worked hard. :)

I will let you all know for sure when I get my grades next week. But it is pretty definite that this is happening, and this is what we are planning for. So PLEASE let me know if you hear of ANYTHING in regards to a job in Rexburg.

I love you all and just wanted to keep you updated on what is going on.  I will try to be better about updating more regular...but you know me :D
