A quick (I think) hello :)

I tried to post from my phone yesterday but for some reason had problems in doing so, so here I am saying hello! I've been wanting to blog for the past week (not much has happened) but with school starting I haven't been able to find blog time in my schedule. Since it's the second week of school I'm finding more "me" time so I can post a quick post. I love school although I have to take this Health class which is totally a waste of my time. I feel bad for saying this but the instructor who teaches it is a big ditz...like ditz with a capital DITZ. Yesterday someone asked about narcolepsy and she says "oh yeah that's like when you're sitting down eating and suddenly fall asleep." In my head I'm like no...that's a scene in Deuce Bigelow. And the cure for everything is "like eating healthy and exercising." Nursing students don't have to take this class so I didn't take it before but other major students do so I'm forced to sit through it if I want to graduate.

I've been stitching...I made sure to find time for that because I have many exchanges to stitch for and *happy dance* I just finished stitching one so that's 2 down 2 more to go. :) I'm going to try and update later on with snippet pictures of what I've stitched so that way my blog isn't "naked." I'm almost ready to start my BIG blog give away! I'm so excited about it that I want to start it now but must wait...or do I? I guess I don't soooooooo if you would like to win this magazine (for those that didn't run out and buy it) leave a comment and I'll draw a name next week Tuesday to see who wins it! Contest is open to EVERYONE no matter where you live so please leave a comment. You never know what may be inside the envelope with the magazine :-) More to come in October!

Edited: Thanks for the comment Shelleen :-) I know that about narcolepsy but my instructor made it seem like it could only happen when you were eating. Trust me she really is a something special whenever someone gives her an example on how to improve your life that's not eating healthy and exercising you can see in her face that it's something she's never thought of. She reads straight from the book and when asked to clarify something she just repeats what the book says. I'm sometimes tempted to ask her to put it in her own words to see if she can...

I was reading your post about the narcolepsy and your teacher is right. My dad was dianosed with it many years ago and you just fall asleep. He has done it at the dinner table and there is a med for it and he has to take it. it has to do with something with the muscles just relaxing.

Can't wait to see all your exchanges! Your health teacher sounds hilarious. At least it will make for good stories in the future. :) I'd love to be in the drawing, I always look for JCS on the newsstands but rarely find it.
