Wanted: a container for excitement

I am super excited about next week! I can just feel the holiday season approaching and I just have to get past Monday. I've been writing a list of things to do which is keeping me trucking forward :) I used to always make a list in college while studying for finals. It helped keep me focused on finishing my work and visualize the fun things in store. 

{one} On Monday I take my final for my microbiology class!! Eeee! I really enjoyed taking the class and like a big science nerd thought it was so so interesting. I’ll walk around saying things like “that’s because of Clostriduim botulism!” and “those are probably coliform bacteria.” Nerdy!!

The way my schedule worked out I had a 4.5 hour break between lecture and lab. So I spent a lot of time in the library. It actually was a blessing in disguise, and I ended up doing tons of quality studying :) Soon I’ll be done with pre-requisite classes for grad school!!

{two} Movies and books galore!! A few weeks ago My grandma was testing out netflix and I borrowed her password for the “watch instantly.” Oh goodness, I am hooked and getting my own account. Its going to be so helpful to knock out some of the 100 movies I have on my list :) Hot chocolate, popcorn, cozy blanket, and snuggly doggie… can’t wait!!

I’ve been asking all my co-workers, bloggies, and friends for book recommendations. And I’ve got quite the list going on! So far I’ve got: Twilight series, The Daily Coyote, Percy Jackson series, Great Expectations, The Help, Middlesex, Timetraveler’s Wife, My Life in France, The Hot Zone, The Color Purple… And of course re-reading Harry Potter!

Let me know of any other good reads!! I like fantasy, chick-lit, classic, suspense, mystery.. haha ok, anything!

{three} I am hoping to get a sewing machine for Christmas, but even if I don’t I’m gifting one to myself! Being immersed in books and science for the past 3 months has gotten my creative side antsy! I am so ready to start crossing out some of the crafty things on my list. One crafty thing I did accomplish was creating a Halloween costume.PA280403Oh, did I mention it wasn’t for me?
PA310416 My little ewok.  I love her :)

Although I’m not sure if the sentiment is reciprocated…

  1. Hey Lisa! I know exactly how you feel. I'm such a nerd too. hehehehe I just read a book called "Strength in What Remains," by Tracy Kidder. My all time favorite book is "This Earth of Mankind," which I hope you one day read. It is such a good book. Cute ewok by the way and you should get a sewing machine! It will be fun making cool stuff. =)
