More Free Time? Pfffttt!!!

So I just wanted to let you all know I am not dead, or sick, or ditching my dear blog.
( perhaps I am just talking to myself these
days and you all have found more consistent blogs to follow. ha ha)

The thing is, summer graced it sizzling presence upon me, I had a few extremely lazy days.... and practically expected the next 3 months to be full of free time and boredom.
I dare say I completely jinxed myself.
*smacks forehead*
You all know a while back I blogged about my intern opportunity?
It was a small intern at this fancy smancy huge lovely Equestrian Center... I just went a couple days a week, and also worked my other job.
welllll....... I was offered a HUGE and AMAZING interning opportunity. Something I have been wanting and praying might come my way for years.
God is extremely good and I am beyond blessed.
I couldn't pass an intern position like this down... and happily accepted!!
It's a very demanding intern the first few weeks,
so this past week I have scarcely been home at all.
I am also working my other job and trying to squeeze in moments to enjoy the summer sun with friends. It's going to take some time for myself and my schedule to adjust... & hopefully blogging fits in the equation *smiles*
I am oh so busy but oh so happy!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I will continue to blog, but I can't promise it will be

What a Way to Start Summer 2010~

So to celebrate my new found freedom, I met my 2 most Kindred Spirits for Lunch, the day after my last final..... because the end of school and the beginning of summer for sure deserves a Par-Tay! Plus I haven't been able to see my two closest friends in eternity cuz I was so darn busy! I was out voted by the other 2 amigos and was forced to pick the dining place of the day ( we always have mock arguments about who decides where we are eating.. ha ha) and of course I had to choose one of my most favorite Restaurants on the planet. Maybe because the name itself shouts pure BLISS!! Yup. The Cheescake Factory
We had far too much fun, and I'm surprised I remembered to snap a few photos! We laughed until we cried, raised our eyebrows and whispered about the flirting waiter, and were easily amused by our food. the cheesecake? DIVINE.

The Happy Place

The super cool do-it-yourself lettuce wraps Hannah ordered for all of us!

My Creation

My Beautiful friend Hannah

and lovely Kelsey,

I'm gonna have to find a better picture.. this is the only one I took of her there, so I'm posting it. ha ha

and me and my big mouth taking the first bite of my wrap!

We had a lovely Tuesday, it was for sure Terrific ;)

p.s. The bang faze I went through has turned into a side swept bang faze... mainly because I'm too lazy right now to style them everyday, my part is impossibly stubborn, and its so hot they've been sticking to my face. *wrinkles nose*

Hello hello hello!!!! Oh my goodness gracious. Has it really been oh so long?
It felt like the ice age to me, ( I have yet to watch that movie, come to think of it)
This past week I crammed, stuffed, and shoved way more Algebra , Biology and countless other subjects into my brain than i thought humanly possible. for me.
because my brain is a complete and utter rebel when it comes to what I SHOULD be thinking as apposed to the countless daydreams of Mr. Darcy, the beach, and having my own little bake shop in Paris. ( *coughs* not that those 3 subjects is ALL i daydream about, but it was certainly on my mind the last few days)
ok, come, for real. which would your brain rather dwell on??
Monday arrived. My last and FINAL final!!!!!!!
I was incredibly pumped, oooh slap me silly I was far more pumped walking into that classroom to take my final exam of the semester than my poor dear sweet teacher expected.
I constantly forget that she's slightly delicate when it comes to levels of excitement and sarcasm.
but seriously. I woke up this morning, and you know when you wake up and things just feel different? a good kind of different, " change is in the air!" as they would say.
and after receiving oodle amounts of encouragement from friends, I dare say I drove to campus determined to push this final behind me and be done!!!
and then I sat down and saw the exam before.
ooooh boy. it looked hard, diamond hard.
that's when the feeling of adrenaline/butterflies in the stomach feeling kicked in.
It's a good feeling, I get the same feeling right before I go in to jump a course at a horse show
. Buts it's also the feeling you want to sorta push aside.
My word, you should have seen me fumble with my books after the 2 hours of crisping my brain.
I stumbled, and blundered out the door and some how made it to my car. dark circles under my eyes, eyes glazed over. flyaway hair. I looked like a coffee addict who had gone cold turkey.
My brain was fried, melted, squashed, juiced, and pureed.
and of course, me being the biggest worry wart of silly little things. I couldn't relax when i got home, I HAD to know my final grade. Nightmares of retaking college algebra flashed in my mind. I went online every half hour, I paced around the house, I flipped through a Parenting magazine ( umm... yeah, something I never ever do) I was on the verge of tears and at the same time on the verge of hysteria. so many emotions hitting me at once.
gawsh, im rambling again ( just making up for 2 weeks mmk?)
and then. a little red sign told me the grades were posted.
I cannot tell you the HUGE relief that hit me, like the tidal wave from 2012.
utter relief. *big exhale*
I did the Irish jig, I jumped around, I hugged people, I couldn't stop smiling. I giggled. I went CUH-razy!!!
No more homework.
No more studying.
No more cramming, or late night crunch times.
No more bruised shins from kicking myself when arriving at campus ( for the millionth time)
realizing I had forgotten my homework, textbook, or scantron.
No more early morning classes.
and then another wave hit me.
I've finished my first year of College.
I'm gonna be a Sophomore. in College.
In just a few days it would have been a YEAR since I graduated from high school.
I'm gonna actually miss things about this year.
No more Starbucks runs before or after class.
No more random doodles from friends in Biology class.
I'm Free.
I know and feel this summer will be beyond memorable.
Remember, time flies by. and it's gone before you have a chance to realize it.
Make the most of every Day!!! I plan to!!!
p.s. I'm back, to blogging, can't ya tell??

Still ridin' the scholastic wave man

First off, I can't believe I've managed to stay away from blogging this long,
BUT, no matter how much I hate to admit it.
It's really helped me focus on finals.
I have such a one-track, short attention, brain, that it was not in the least bit easy,
I would sit down, click on the blogger link... my brain screaming
" yesss!!! yes! finally no more logarithms and mitochondria mutations!!!! do it Rachel, blog the week away"
and then i would hear the
voice on my shoulder,
(who sounds an awful lot like Crush from Finding Nemo) droning out:
" Duuuuuudeeeee. for cereal, you made a promise, man. I conreto promise. Don't let em' down man. Dude ride it out, ride it like a waaaaave man."
BUT taking a blogging siesta
so far has been worth it.
I shall be back soon, only a couple more to go.
Monday, Monday. unlike the song it ain't gonna get me down.
Are you all still out there?
