Getting My Criminal On and Traveling
One of them being I had Midterms and had to get the studying done to do well on the tests. If anyone is wondering, I got my grades over the weekend and I have A's in all of my classes except one I have a B+. I am going to work on that though, and get it up!
So what have you missed? Besides loads of studying and reports that would bore you to sleep if I talked about them anymore. (So I won't.)
I discovered I get easily distracted these days, and focus on what I am doing too much at times. I found this out the hard way while I was staring down at my digital design project while walking through the quiet computer lab, and then walked right into the glass window next to the door..
Loud bang, LOL
I didn't turn around to see how many saw me, I just laughed out loud and found the door, LOL I mean what else could I do, right...
I have been enjoying the trails and exploring while out running. I'm starting to feel stronger and stronger and my knee that I tore the cartilage in a couple of months ago while moving rarely bothers me much when I run. Though I hate to admit, I didn't keep my consistency up on the weekends I traveled.
I took a couple of weekend trips. Two weeks ago I took the 5-hour drive up north to see one of my cute nieces to get baptized. It was a bit of a rushed trip.
Then after midterms, I had fall break so I took the long drive again and was able to spend 4 days hanging out with my family and a few of my friends.
One one note, I have gotten a lot of singing at the top of my lungs time in, I mean what else was I going to do with over 20 hours of driving over the past few weeks, LOL
I even broke out some of my old school tunes, since you know no one to embarrass myself in front of:)
Speaking of being up north. I hung out with my sisters and one left us alone in her house while she left. (She ditched us, LOL)
That just felt like a "I must accomplish this feat."
My sister who lives there tried drilling out the lock, no luck.
A hammer was taken to the handle, no luck.
So my one sister and I got our criminal on and went on You Tube and just over a minute later of a video, I learned how to pick a lock.
Let me just say, yes it is both easy and difficult. But once I caught on to where the two bobby pins needed to go, and how to work them. I was in, within minutes!
So AWESOME! But now that I know how easy it is to break into someones house and locked doors, I am a little more concerned about my own locks at my place, LOL
Definitely going to buy one of those door stopper things now that they show on infomercials that make it so the door can't be pushed in. Seriously, I think I am great for learning to pick locks, but if I can do it, so can anyone and that's a bit scary!
One of my drives, I stopped to do a little hiking in Kolob Canyon, this is on the North West side of Zion National Park. I heard the fall leaves were in bloom and they sure were, it was beautiful. I even got out and did a short hike, before getting back in the car to drive another 4 hours!
Truth is, I wondered too! Kidding...
But I had promised many I would hold it, and I really do enjoy hosting them. So I slacked a little this past month on a few posts, and instead got ready for the hop.
While it will be a little difficult on days I have big assignments and no time, I know I can get it done and pull it off. But most importantly it's going to be fun!
I've made some adjustments requiring 50% less time commitment and less participants than in the past. We'll see how the participants like that!
I purposely made it for after my Midterms were over so I wouldn't have that part to worry about!
Hope everyone has been doing great! With all the busy studies and traveling I haven't been able to get around much on the blogs much so I am looking forward to catching up with you all!
For those who may be visiting my blog for the first time through the hop, welcome! I am looking forward to getting to know you all better!
