Things I Love 2010.

Since I have missed the last few "Things I Love Thursday's" because I have been quite busy, I decided to write about the recent things I loved and my year's positive notes. I hope you all have had a wonderful year. Maybe your year has undergone some of the worst moments in your life, for that I apologize for the turmoil you have had to endure. I hope you can still look back at the year seeking out positive memories to remember. Whether that be good laughs with friends, new friends, exciting trips, or even surviving a tough situation and coming out stronger because of it. Use whatever reason you can to smile and rejoice about your year, cause life is too short to frown. =]

+Being finished with my first semester at Valencia Community College. [Which is actually being changed to Valencia College]

Things I Love Thursday

Welcome back my fellow followers,
It's Thursday! Which means the positive notes are chiming! Lets go!

+This seriously easy and fun way of folding shirts, I am amused.

+Finishing up my final Costumes Design Project, and making an A! Also, finishing it at a decent hour of the day, not six am. Thanks to switching my days off around.

+Taking my lighting exam and the whole class laughing after it only took us about five minutes to complete. It was amazing.

+Finishing my take home test for Intro to Theatre and feeling confident that I did well. Though I am sad that class is over. =/

+Finishing my take home test for Survey of Entertainment Technology, and feeling confident to turn it in tomorrow.

+I believe I should have all A's this semester! Yay!

+My work's Christmas Party:
Using a curling iron and not burning myself.
Dressing up for the 1920's themed party.
Great food..
Fabulous Dessert!
Tiffany and I getting Sierra Mist for our fake champagne.
Lots of pictures.
Lots of dancing.
Mingling with the employees I love.
Realizing I knew a lot more people in different areas than I realized.
New employee friends.
After Party at Ale House.
More pictures.
Fun conversations.
Staying up late.
Not being tired the next day, despite my lack of sleep.

+Looking forward to normal days off work, and having time to spend with my friends from work outside of work. =]

And....What Stormtroopers Do On Their Day Off

Things I Love Thursday

Well, it is Thursday again, which means there's a positive note I plan to gloat about.

+ Well first off, it was my Birthday this past weekend. I am officially twenty years old. Yay.
+ Our group in Intro to Stage Lighting did our lighting project on Monday, and I am pretty sure we nailed it. Plus we had a ton of fun creating our show.
+ Seeing Burlesque for my birthday. I absolutely loved the movie.
+ Getting my lighting test back that I thought I bombed and actually getting a 92 on! Yay! Unfortunately that is still a B, but I am perfectly thankful considering I thought I was going to fail.
+ Getting off the waitlist and into my Advanced Stage Lighting class for next semester. So Excited!!
+ My current lighting teacher showing a few of us the new fancy Grand AM2 Lighting Board we get to work with in Advanced Stage Lighting. Which is also the same console they use for the Amway building for the Magic Basketball Games. Plus we're the first class to have the opportunity to learn about this board.
+ My parents sending me a care package, and giving me stuff to plant an Aloe plant. Which I thought was quite hilarious considering I burned my hand pretty bad last week on a curling iron.
+ Speaking of curling irons, I used one without burning myself last Monday.
+ Getting some killer awesome hours at work before Christmas, even though I'm exhausted.
+ Having my credit card work again.
+ Seeing "She Stoops To Conquer" at the Mad Cow Theatre  in Downtown Orlando.
+ Hanging out with my friends on my birthday.
+ Red Velvet cake.
+ Buying Christmas Cards to mail out to family and such. I feel so adult. Haha.
+ Knowing my phone contract is up and I can get a new phone!
+ School is almost finished for the semester. I. Am. Excited!
+ The employee Christmas Party is next week! I'm excited!
+ One of the youth I used to help mentor posting a scripture I used to always tell her on facebook, and her writing that she hasn't forgotten me telling her. It warmed my heart, and really made me miss youth ministry.

Have a blessed week, thanks for reading my blog!
Love you all,
