Graduation Announcements

I made my own graduation announcements! Not only does it save me money, it was fun!

My mom works at a day care teaching two year olds. The character quality that they are learning for this month is "responsible". Last month my mom and I were chatting on the phone and we were trying to come up with a simplified definition of the word "responsible". Here's what we came up with...

Responsible: Doing what I know I should do, even when I don't want too.

Pretty good, eh? I think it pretty much sums it up. In my case...I need to be responsible as I enter the last few weeks of the semester so that I can get all my work done. I am having to do what I know I should do...homework...even when I don't want too.

My current responsibilities include:
  • Genetics
  • Population Community Ecology
  • Senior Seminar Project
  • Decorative and Wearable Arts (including various craft projects)
  • Senior Bonner Internship in the Lifeworks office
  • among various other long term responsibilities to myself, my family, my friends, and God.
Things I have to do before I can graduate (in no particular order):
  • Correct Population Community Ecology (PCE) Paper
  • Write a second PCE Paper
  • Write the remaining reading reports for PCE
  • Two more tests and finals in PCE
  • Finish Senior Seminar Experiment
  • Finish Senior Seminar Short Film
  • Write Senior Seminar Paper
  • Senior Seminar presentation
  • Senior Seminar poster
  • Two more tests and finals in Genetics
  • Make a purse for Decorative and Wearable Arts (DWA)
  • Refurbish an old purse for DWA
  • Plan a tree planting for earth day for Lifeworks
  • Finish the senior bonner handbook for the senior class
  • Bonner Banquet presentation
Am I forgetting anything? much to do...only 45 days to do it in!

I'm feeling pretty ok about it all today...we'll see how I feel tomorrow though.

Here's a much happier list....

Things I'd rather be doing:
  • Spending time with friends that I won't always have around :(
  • Hanging out with Megan Anderson!
  • Spending time with aquaintances I always meant to hang out with more
  • Cleaning and organizing my room (seriously lol)
  • Making sure everyone I know here at Mars Hill knows how much they've meant to me
  • Enjoying my last weeks as a college student
  • Spending time with my nephew
  • Reading
  • Watching Full House
  • Making cards for all the friends I'll miss terribly
  • Enjoying spring
  • Going to Looking Glass Falls and Sliding Rock one last time!
  • Being silly
  • Appreciating/encouraging/building up my friends
All of this is kinda on hold until further notice. Unfortunately some things are time sensative like once I do have will be too late. I just hope I can get enough quality time in with all the important people in between all the work I have to do.

Oh how I love my list making... :)

How 'bout this?

Get into the Disneyland college program.
Move to California.
Network while in the CP.
Get a job working as an intern or production assistant for Walt Disney Studios.
Network while working for WDS.
Get a job working for Disney Nature.

It makes perfect sense. Should be a piece of cake, eh?

That's my plan....what's yours, God?

Florida or California?

It's been wayyy too long!

I will be graduating college in 51 days. That is, if I can pass all my classes. I can honestly say I'm a little worried. But I'm trying not to think about it. I am so completely over biology. It's draining the life out of's so hard! I will be so relieved once I've completed these last three biology classes I'm taking. Also I'm taking a decorative and wearable arts class...aside from being lots of work...this class is pretty easy.

I had previously applied to the Disney College Program at Disney World in Orlando, FL. I have not heard anything yet, except for a letter telling me that I should know by April 17th. I know that some people have already been rejected or accepted. I am on spring break though...away from my PO Box. I called the mailroom, but alas...still no letter.

My brother, Jer, is possibly moving out to California to pursue his film making dreams. My cousin and his wife are quite possibly moving out there as well. That got me thinking about Disney Land in Anaheim, California. So I have applied and had an interview with the college program at Disney Land as well.

Who knows where I'll end up. Now all I have to do is wait until April 17th. I'm not a fan of waiting.

I'm also looking for a summer job here in Georgia from May to August, if anyone knows of any!

In other news, I turned 22 last friday! I don't feel as though I'm qualified to be 22 yet! It feels weird! I went to the Magic Kingdom for my birthday. It was awesome. I got in for free and they gave me a pin that says "Happy Birthday, Jenny" all the cast members kept telling me "happy birthday" all day.

The next day we went to the beach where I got scorched! I am not a sunscreen user...I just can't wrap my head around the idea of the sun being bad for me. That just can't be! I love the sun!

While in FL, I stayed with my Aunt Cindy and Uncle Vic and hung out with my cousins Paul and April and their spouses Kelly and John. I finally got to meet my cousin April's son, Dante...he is 18 months old and really well behaved. I love the Berry/Tomassoni's! I wish I loved closer to them so we could hang out more often!

I'm about to go be a good aunt and hang out with my sister-in-law, Becca and my nephew, Grant. Grant is 4 months old and super cute!

Spring break is going great.

I'll try to be better about updating.
