Never mind, I can't say what I was going to say. I am not tenured yet and my blog is public again. DRATS! Let's just say that I have a lot to say on the matter of education- if you ever have a day or two to listen to me rant and rave, just let me know and I would be more than happy to oblige.

Butt out...

Net says I need to blog more so here goes...

 Why do some people feel as if it is their right and responsibility to keep track of what I do? Why must they comment to others about my personal life? At least I am in a relationship... ERG! 

Okay, let me back up. For those of you that don't know (can't imagine who you would be, but, whatever...) I have a missionary. Jordan has been faithfully serving for the last 23 months and 1 week. Yes, the count down is down to 22 days. I guess you could say that I waited. I have always known that I would make the entire two years- no matter how many well- intentioned (and some not so-well- intentioned) people told me that I would never make it. Trust me, even people I hardly know feel inclined to give me their personal opinions. Fine, whatever. I don't care if you have an opinion but unless I specifically ask for it, don't tell me! 

Anyways, even though I was waiting, during my time at BYU I spent plenty of time with members of the opposite sex. I didn't lock myself in a closet or refuse to have fun because "I was waiting". I had a great time but as awesome as all of the people I met were, none of them came even close to Jordan. So that brings me to why I am venting on this particular topic.

Last night, my darling younger sister faithfully attended a singles ward activity. Where she was unfortunately cornered and accosted as to my dating status. She, of course, as any good sister would, reported that I was happily still waiting for my darling elder. Much to her dismay, she was then subjected to their personal views on how I have "wasted" the last 2 years of my life. "Wasted?" she says, "excuse me, but in the time since Jordan left she has graduated from BYU and almost completed her masters." (Keep in mind she is talking to boys that have spent the last 5 years at a 2 year college...) Their argument was that although I have not wasted my time academically, I socially locked myself up. I am sorry, just because I rejected you, does not mean I locked myself up. It just means my time is valuable and I am selective in who I chose to spend it on...

This past week sucked. That is all I can say to sum it up and this new week hasn't really started off that great. I hate being sick. 

 Oh well,  I suppose. Tomorrow after all is a new day and hopefully it will be a better one. Before you think that this past week was a total waste, a few redeeming events occurred. I was officially issued my preliminary single subject credential. Don't believe me? Go check it out yourself here. Isn't that so cool? Yeah, I am pretty stoked. And guess what, you should be too! :)

Now just a few more years of school and I will never have to darken the door of a college class again. That is of course, unless I am the professor.

blogging. Okay, now I am done. I am going to go shower now. Trust me, if you were within smelling distance you would appreciate it. I will come back and write some more later.
