The results are in...

And not only did I pass the exam with flying colors, I also got the bonus questions right... so i ended up with 107% :) which puts my overall grade in class for this semester real close to 100%! Not bad considering I barely passed algebra and failed geometry in high school.
This news put me in such a good mood that I decided to skip Photoshop class last night and treat myself to a brand new episode of Vampire Diaries. It's my guilty pleasure and I'm head over heels for Damon. So I painted, drooled a little and then met my bf and 5 guys he works with at Buffalo Wild Wings. I got home pretty late but surprisingly I woke up feeling great.
Today is all about cleaning and then getting a 90 minute massage at 2... I'm counting down the seconds!

I've been searching my bookshelves and notebooks for the perfect poems to share and the poem I selected today was found in my Whole Living magazine.

in perpetual spring

Gardens are also good places
to sulk. You pass beds of
spiky voodoo lilies
and trip over the roots
of a sweet gum tree,
in search of medieval
plants whose leaves,
when they drop off
turn into birds
if through fall on land,
and colored carp if they
plop into water.

Suddenly the archetypal
human desire for peace
with every other species
wells up in you. The lion
and the lamb cuddling up.
The snake and the small, kissing.
Even the prick of the thistle,
queen of weeds, revives
your secret belief
in perpetual spring,
your faith that for every hurt
there is a leaf to cure it.

  1. Such a small world! My daughter (21) also loves Damon from Vampire Diaries. He is pretty sexy in that bad boy way!

    My daughter also worked at Buffalo Wild Wings in Fayetteville for a couple of years but just got a job being a manager somewhere else. She had a friend working at Buffalo somewhere in Oklahoma. Jordan Parsons? Ring a bell?
