Some snacks I made while Andrew was out of town for work, I think they look good! I like the berries one the best! I've always wanted to try to make a cute cake, I don't think this will be a new business venture, but it makes me want to have some parties so I can try new things! Lets see, photography (check), sewing (check), cake decorating (checkish).....what should I try next? Oh the life of a graduate.

Wow! So 200 posts, not too bad. I would count myself as a moderate blogger! I wanted to save the 200th for something awesome, and here it is: GRADUATION! I graduate officially on the 12th, walking on the 13th. I am so excited and pretty proud of myself! Now all I have to do is get a great job and I'll be all set.
A few stats after taking 120 college credit hours:
I still don't know how to use the library
I have written at least 112 papers (what I could find in my "school" folder on my desktop)
I still look like a freshman
I only truly enjoyed about 3 of my 50 classes that I took
I refuse to pay 1.50 for a little thing of milk from the vending machine when I could get a whole gallon at walmart for less, however I will buy a candy bar for a dollar when I can get two for that at walmart
I have made at least one good friend in almost all of my classes (usually the girl that sits next to me every day)
Probably more than half of my friends on facebook are from BYU
The Alumni Assoc. are crazy! They called me TODAY (3 days before I graduate) to ask for a donation, I told them I don't have a job yet, I've been paying them for four years and I'm still paying them for my husband, and no I will not donate right now. They should wait at least 10 years after you graduate to ask for that!
If you skip class you are inevitably going to either a. run into your husband b. run into your brother or c. your mom will call you
....I suck at stats (this is very true!)
So these are the true college essentials I have found to be extremely useful.
First and foremost, a laptop. Not any laptop, a MAC. Come on, give it up MAC users! It has NEVER crashed on me and the battery is still amazing after years of continual use!
Flash drive. This was a present from my uncle Brian and aunt Natalia when I was first begun my college career. I didn't know what I was going to use it for, but now I am extremely thankful for it! I don't think we've bought ink for our printer in over a year because it's cheaper and easier to put our assignments on this and print at school. THANK YOU SO MUCH!
Student ID. This is where you put $$$ to print homework, buy a snack (chocolate covered cinnamon bears...), or whatever. You use it to take tests (yay...) and look like a legit college student.
Vera tote. Now I am noticing in this picture that I have a pink computer, pink flash drive, pink purse, and a pink pen and pencil in the purse. The pencil and pen is an accident, I think just a coincidence because Andrew takes all non-pink writing utensils. This fits my computer, a book, and a notebook, cell phone, etc...pretty much all you need!
And most lastly, books. Seriously, books are SUCH a waste of money, especially when you can't sell them back, and when your teacher NEVER uses them or refers to them! This is just a few of the lucky ones I'm stuck with forever.
Well, I hope you all enjoyed looking back at college stuff or got a nice preview of where you or your kids are going into! It's been a crazy ride, glad I took it, but I'm sure glad to be getting off!
I taught my sister than when you're in college YOU are paying the teachers so, you show up when you want, leave when you want, and wear what you want (as long as it's modest ;) )
Thank you so much to my parents, my husband, my family, and all my friends who have given me love and support these past few years! You're all the best!
