Busy Weekend....

I've been pretty busy this last week and this next week as well. Not only with school but also with church and watching volleyball. At the beginning of the week, I had a Biochem exam on Monday. I'm hoping I did alright on that one, it didn't seem too bad, but it's hard to tell.
That night I had a Presidency meeting for about an hour and studied for my exam that was the next morning.

Tuesday I had a Pharm Calc exam. That was extremely difficult, one of the hardest tests I've ever taken. Not because the material was difficult by any means, but the amount of time that was permitted made it difficult to finish it, in fact I wasn't able to get through the entire thing (nobody else was either!).
That night Dani, Kristen, & I watched the UW volleyball game vs. Colorado Christian University. It was a fun game to watch, and we won!!

On Wednesday afternoon, I got a text message from Brother Bailey asking me to speak tomorrow because the original people that were called to speak cancelled because they found out they were going to be out of town.

Yesterday Dani & I headed to Fort Collins to watch the CSU vs. UW volleyball game. Well, it wasn't the prettiest game I've watched, UW wasn't on their best game and CSU has some amazing hitters (UW lost, sadly). The trip there and back home was an adventure in itself. We got into town in before the game started. I know where the campus is but wasn't sure where the gym was at, so we drove all around the campus, hit a few dead ends, & finally we made it to the game where we had to park pretty far away & walk in the pouring rain to get to the gym. After the game was over we got back to the car to head home, turned down the wrong direction & got lost. We ended up pulling over & using my navigation system to find our way back to the main road. Thank goodness for that, or we still might be stuck in Fort Collins!!

Today I spent the day getting my talk ready & studying for Dose form because I have that exam on Monday.

Tomorrow morning I have to go to the PEC meeting because Michelle is out of town. I then have to go to prayer meeting and then speak in Sacrament Meeting. I always get super nervous to give a talk because I really don't like speaking in front of people and having everyone look at me. This is only the second talk I've had to give since I've been down here.

Monday morning I have an exam in Dose Form. Then right after that I have to meet with my advisor to go over the classes I'm going to be taking next semester, and getting my PERC number so I can register. At 5 I have another meeting as the Relief Society presidency, with FHE right after that.
When the week is over I get to go to Lovell to see my family! I'm so excited to see everyone. It's been a stressful semester, and it'll be nice to get to relax and see my friends and family! At least there's something to help me get through the rest of the week!! :)

Halfway There.....

The semester is going by so quick. I can't believe that at the end of the week, it's going to be halfway through the semester. School just keeps going by so quick. It seems like I'm going to be in school for so long, since I still have another three and a half years left. How fast it's going I know it'll be over before I know it.

There's a lot of things I get to look forward to to get through the rest of the semester. At the end of October I'm heading home for the weekend, then Melissa is going to be down in Laramie for about a week. Then I'll have another 3 weeks until Thanksgiving Break. After that the semester is almost over! There's only one week left of classes and then finals! It's going to be a great feeling when this semester is over.

This is the hardest semester ever. As hard as I thought last semester was, I'd take that hands down compared to this semester. I'm going to be happy when I finally get through this semester. It's been a ton of work already (not that I didn't think it was going to be).

On Friday, I had to shadow a P4 student at the Poudre Infusion Center in Fort Collins. The pharmacists there asked me if I was ready to quit school already. I know it's going to be a long amount of time in some ways, and such a short time in others. It'll be worth it in the end, even if it difficult right now.

Bowling Night.....

For fun, some of our pharmacy class got together to go bowling. It was such a blast. Everyone was crazy, and let's just say they all had a little fun. Spending time outside of class was such a nice thing to do. I loved my class right from the beginning of the year, but now it's even better because we got to know each other even more & got to be great friends.

We played two games and were there from 8:30-11:15. I never broke 100, but got close in the second game. The first game I had the high score the entire game until the last frame, and I ended up losing by a few points. The second game was much better. We were all a little rusty at first & luckily for the most part everybody's scores were close. There were only a few people who got over 100, and one of them was pretty good. There were some pretty amazing bowling techniques & throws that some of them came up with!

It was a great time, and we had a lot of fun. I got some awesome pictures! I'll bet the people working at the bowling alley were happy when we finally left. We were a little loud & laughed a lot! I'm looking forward to these next four years even more now with such a great group of people who get along so well together.

Well I was able to survive by first round of exams! I still haven't found out how I did on a few of my exams, but I'm not overly happy with the ones that I've found out about. I'm still getting use to the school load in pharmacy school & am in the process of making my study habits better.

I've been having so much fun with all of my friends and Dani too. It's definitely keeping me sane through this semester. On Sunday my friends Mike & Mat came over for dinner. It's the first time that I've cooked a big meal all semester, and I've missed it! Yesterday Dani & I went to eat at Applebee's, and it was really good.
One of my favorite things that I do to unwind is playing volleyball on Thursday nights at the Stake Center. There's a lot of people from the student ward who come to play. I've met a bunch of people from the other wards that I didn't know, and I've got a lot more friends from the wards then I've had in the past few years. It's been great and has made me enjoy the student ward even more then I have in the past.

This weekend is going to be a lot of fun. I'm going to go bowling tomorrow with some of the people in my pharmacy class. My pharmacy class is the best ever, I couldn't ask for a better one!! Dani & I are going to watch a movie at the theatre (probably the late show) too. Saturday we're going to go to Fort Collins for something to do & to get out of Laramie for the weekend! I've been craving some Olive Garden and somewhere better to shop then Walmart!

I'm slowly recuperating from this wave of exams, and getting ready for my next set which starts in two weeks. It's going to be a fun weekend, & I'm super excited!!
