The Life of Bon: 11 days.

11 days.


11 days.

That's totally enough time to cram for a test that covers 18 credit hours, right?!?  11 days and $300 and one gruesome 6 1/2 hour test.  I can totally handle this.

I'm trying hard to make time to study and put the necessary hours in, but to not let it control and ruin my life. I don't want to stop blogging because that brings a lot of joy to me.  I don't want to stop enjoying my last few weeks at Copper Hills.  I don't want to stop spending time with my family and friends.

This morning I woke up at 8 (unheard of for a Saturday!) to hit the books for a couple of hours before I spend a good chunk enjoying time with friends.  I've got a good friend from California and a good friend from Colorado in time.  Greg and I have also scheduled back massages for this afternoon.  Hey.  You gotta take care of yourselves, right?!?

If you find yourself with a quiet, relaxed weekend, then  read up! Lucky you!

+The last time I saw my bestie California friend, Akasha was here and before that here.
+This is definitely a stressful time of my life, but hey, at least I'm not engaged!
+Woke up dreaming about Argentina and the people there.  Oh, how I miss them!
+Giving this book to my friend, Amy, to read.  Such a fast read and one of my favorites to make you appreciate the human body.
+In my favorite blog post read all week, my blog bestie, Taylor, has coined the term "Blogger Shame Syndrome."  And yes, I totally have it.

  1. Gosh I am glad I stopped on this post. Taylor has written such amazing (true blogger) thing. I never feel shame on taking pictures of food (or even) me in restaurant!
    Happy Weekend!

  3. I've been missing from the blog world for this past week and just caught up on your blog and you will do great on this test...and if you don't, you'll just have to attack it again another time. I totally feel you on this type of thing, I took a test last summer to be middle school english certified (currently I am certified birth - 6th but Missouri now requires MS for 6-8) and I missed it by 5 points and need to attempt it again when my life slows down a bit. But best of luck chicka, you can do it!

  4. You can totally do it! Not t downplay the seriousness of a test but I find most teaching tests are common sense -- especially when you've already been teaching for a few years!! Especially when you're an English teacher! Good luck chica!
