The other night I helped woody write a paper for his English class. He had written the paper the night before and had fallen asleep while writing it and wanted me to go through and fix some things, make sure it made sense and he wrote real words.. you know the usual.

Well first off Woody does not ask me to edit his papers very often because he says that I "write like Shakespeare" (for reals, that's a direct quote). Now really, I am not quite that eloquent, but I can say that I don't believe I have gotten anything less than A on a paper here at BYU.... but enough boasting.

I started out pretty good and even got a little ahead of myself and read the article he was reviewing to make sure I got the whole picture. Unfortunately it got pretty late and I got a little bit crazy.... My addition to the paper ended when I insisted that woody say something along the lines of

"The author lulled the reader into a sense of security allowing them to feel comfortably engaged. And then she POUNCED'.

I am not sure but either the word "lull" or "pounced" made Wood feel a little uneasy about the sentence. I'm guessing pounced since he ended up using the word "lull".

We ended up having a great time and laughing about different variations of pounce, then wood took the computer away from me, tucked me into bed and finished his paper... a typical school night at the Palmer House.

School Thus Far

School has been going surprisingly well, extremely stressful but well :) What's great about this semester is that every class I am taking and everything that I learn in my class is applicable to what I will be doing! It is a wonderful feeling. Sadly: this is my first math class in my whole entire life that I do not love. My teacher is soft spoken and I feel like I have not learned anything... but hopefully we'll start learning soon. The best thing about this year is I finally do not feel like the minority. ECE is a smaller major than Elementary Education so when we took classes with them it was normal for the El Ed girls to out number us ECE ladies. But now it is all ECE and I love it because the teacher define us as being different and recognize us for that. It is nice to know that I can make a difference and I hope I will!

Me and Wood don't get to see each other very often. Mainly mornings and nights but it's make our time together special. And I especially enjoy our mornings together when I can sometimes make him breakfast and send him off to school with a smooch.. the simple joys of life

Wood and I looked at PA schools last night. He said maybe Alabama and I said.. uh? Where's that? HAHAHA He also suggested Maine. But I personally am leaning towards Nevada or Arizona. We also looked up Master programs for me. I am probably getting ahead of myself but I would LOVE to get a masters :)

The absolute worst thing about starting school: It is 9:00 p.m. and I still have yet to see my Woody. I miss his handsome face
