Because of pure green peas.– Idiom of the Day A Spanish idiom from Peru that translates “for no reason.”
We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.– Winston Churchill Since I talked about Winston Churchill today I decided to do a quote instead of an idiom. Someone sent me this and I love it because even Churchill understood to some degree about living the way of give.

Today was a great day. Even though I didn’t get up as early as I wanted to, I ended up having more time in the morning then I planned on having. I then ended up drinking quite a bit of coffee over the day - small one at brekkie, then a toffee mocha frappucino from Starbucks (which was a bit sweet) and then a small one at afternoon tea (I had to have something to dunk Alayna’s...

Today I woke up early and worked out with Liz - man, the day goes SO well when I do! I had lots of energy even though I didn’t have lots of sleep. I did 2.5K and 50 overhead squats. Classes went well. I got a good grade back on my Life and Teaching test (phew!), although it did include a 9 point curve. Now only 3 midterms left to find out about. They are the ones I’m worried about -...
A good fork.– Idiom of the Day An Italian idiom for “a hearty eater”.

I’m sorry that I didn’t blog yesterday - it was SUPER crazy with the concert and I didn’t get back to the dorm, except to change until 10:22 and I left the dorm at 7:30am - long day! Oh and I work 4.5 hours before working 5 hours at the concert. I came back the dorm and was absolutely bombed after only having 4 hours of sleep the night before and working out with Alayna. The...

Today was quite a good day overall. I woke up really anxious about the Principles midterm but it went pretty well overall. The one scripture that I didn’t memorize was on the matching list so I was super happy about that - definitely an answered prayer. CrossFit today wasn’t too bad because we only worked on dead lifts so while it made me sore, it wasn’t super tiring. I then got...

Ok, so I’m doing this blog on Tuesday evening. I was too busy last night studying for my Principles midterm to blog. The day started off really well. I got up early (5:20am!) to go workout with one of the sophomores. I rowed 2K and did 50 squats and I haven’t felt so happy and energetic throughout the day like that in a while. Plus I was alert by 6am, which if you know me at all (my...
To have mustaches.– Idiom of the Day A Spanish idiom from Latin America meaning “a person of energy.”

While it was a pretty busy day, I was happy to find it was quite productive as well. I slept in to 9:08, except it wasn’t really a sleep in considering I went to bed after midnight. I was writing out my scripture memory cards for my Principles midterm so it was for a good reason. Then I went to work for almost 3 hours, went to a wedding, went back to work for just over 2 hours, came back to...
To be in the green.– Idiom of the Day An Italian idiom meaning “to be broke.” (It’s kind of ironic in English, isn’t it?)

So I’m hoping that my idiom of the day will help me with my Life and Teachings midterm. I studied for a bit this afternoon (though I felt awful all day). So I had a 7-way Gmail chat tonight - first of all, it’s really fast paced and hard keep up with. It was crazy. I laughed so much. Hmmm… so not much really happened. After L&T tomorrow I will only have one midterm left -...
To be a coconut.– A Spanish idiom from Latin America meaning “intelligent.”
To look like September.– Idiom A Russian idiom for “to have a long face.”

We had a Life and Teachings review game class today. I was planning on studying for it but didn’t end up doing it but I still knew a bunch of answers so I was super excited. I felt bad because I kept answering questions for my group. We played Bible Basketball so once you answered the question you got a chance to get another point by shooting a ball of paper into a little (actually, tiny… one...

So last night I discovered that the 2008 version of Knight Rider is on Hulu. They only made 17 episodes and even though it was getting kind of corny at the end. The way I got onto the topic was that someone suggested I watch Macgyver, this show from the 80’s or something, and I barely got 27 seconds through it. It was so argh! Typical 80’s I guess. So painful! Today I just went to...
A squeezer of limes.– Idiom of the Day A Hindu idiom for “a self-invited guest.”
To seize the moon by the teeth.– A French idiom meaning “to attempt the impossible.”
To walk with one’s elbows.– Cuban idiom for “stingy.”

So I had two of my midterms today - Business and Western Civilization. They went much better than I thought. So that was good. Didn’t get much sleep last night with the studying so I was a bit out of it this morning. Hmm… not that much else happened today. So about some of the videos… I am a big fan of improv shows so posted a bunch from and Australian one if you are wondering...

No time to die.– Idiom of the Day Russian idiom for “overwhelmed with work.”
Sunday, October 17
Hmm… ok so today I was going to wake up and be all Miss Self-Disciplined - be up by 9am and get my room all organized and send some emails to people I should have done weeks ago, and study for my Business midterm… all before going to work at noon. Guess what time I woke up? 11:38. Yeppers, so I just went to work instead. Then I did some homework, ate some dinner, organized some of my...
