Our Love Is Just This Way

*Title is from the song Just This Way by Bomshel* (I couldn't think of a title, it has nothing to do with this post hehe)

Happy Tuesday peeps! Hope you are all have a terrific day so far!

My day started off pretty early (6:30am) because getting my pro/con speech done yesterday after work did not go as planned. Let's just say that a little 5 minute speech took me forever to prepare. Just another reason to not procrastinate! It didn't help that after being hard at work for roughly four hours I was just not in the mood to continue working so I got distracted by the TV. I haven't watched the Bachelor all season but I decided I wanted to watch the Women Tell All episode just so I didn't have to keep working on that speech. At 7:30 I went to my aunt and uncle's for dinner. My aunt made shrimp scampi (never had it home-made before) and it was AMAZING! Definitely will be trying that out on my own soon. I ended up hanging out with them after dinner until after 9 because I was watching TV with them, yet again another reason to not have to be working on my speech. When I finally did go home I decided I just wasn't in the mood, I'll finish it in the morning...even though it was due yesterday. I didn't think it would take that long to finish but I was wrong.

Like I said, I got up at 6:30am and I got right to work. I didn't post my speech until 10am, the very last person and only the second person to post on the 8th (the other person posted at 12:19am so I guess that doesn't really count). We'll see how my grade turns out by posting it a "day" late.

My speech was on the pros and cons of comprehensive sex education programs. I decided on this topic because sex education was (still is?) an issue in Wisconsin. I knew I would be able to find enough information about it to support both sides. Now if only I had started the research earlier. And as I write this I remembered I didn't include a bibliography in my outline. I am going to add that to it right now!

Ok now that I've got that take care of (yes I really went and did that before starting this new paragraph ;) ) Good thing I posted a blog and was writing about my speech or I wouldn't have figured it out for quite a while.

When I was finally done with my speech this morning I had to rush to get ready for school. It was my last day of marketing because our professor is going to be out-of-town on Thursday and next week Tuesday is our final. It is only an 8 week class so that's why it's almost done already. Other than it's a very fast paced class I didn't mind it. I have another 8 week class starting after spring break, hopefully that one goes just as smoothly as this one did. I took a fourth exam today so I'm crossing my fingers that I didn't bomb it like I did on my last one. Well I just checked, a 61/100 but our professor is adding 10 points to our grade so that means I got a 71/100. Not as bad as my last exam score but not great either :( Oh well, it's in the past now and all I can do is move forward and study hard for the final so I do well on it.

And you're probably sick of reading about my school work by now so I'll wrap this up. I'm going to start the process of evaluating other students' speeches so I don't do that last-minute as well ;) Maybe freshen up my nails as well, they're chipped and look pretty bad right now, toes included.

Here are some pictures for your view pleasure :)

Do you enjoy coffee?

I don't unfortunately. I love the idea of coffee though!

Are you a procrastinator? Do you feel like you do your best work at the last-minute?

I am definitely a procrastinator (obvs) and I don't think I do my best work at the last-minute. I always pull through with a decent, if not good grade, but I'm sure I could do better if I wasn't rushed at the last-minute to get the assignment done.

Until next time.... =)</span

Maybe some day I'll join you on the dark side...but until then I stick with getting my caffine from my 2 Mountain Dews per week :)

So the secret to ending procrastination is getting serious about losing weight and actually LOSING the weight?? Guess I need to seriously work on losing the weight then ;)

Double sigh...I'd love an awesome manicure by you! And if we didn't live so far away from each other I would say we should be work out buddies cuz I need someone to hold me accountable.
