Has anyone ever taken Meteorology in college? If so, was it hard? Oh, it wasn't that hard? Well, you're a liar. I am almost over with this hellish course and want to warn the world. Don' It's embarrassing but this is by far the toughest college course I've taken. Granted, I'm 31 and am still in college, but I promise I'm not that dumb.
Somehow this month has turned into the most stressful month of my life and I will be so glad when February is here. I'm supposed to be working on a 10 page paper, studying for an award board, writing an Initial Feedback, memorizing Portuguese vocabulary and getting started on my second to last module in 2 online classes. However, I am listening to country music, blogging, looking for new guest bedroom furniture and doing all I can to avoid actual work.
Corey is almost half way through his deployment. I thought the time would go by fast, but it's not. When he's gone for an extended period of time, my thoughts change drastically. I want a baby, a dog, am scared of the dark, get a little more sensitive than normal and am in constant fear that everyone in my family is dead. My brain gets super dramatic but it's only between the hours of 5:30 pm and 9:30 pm. I'm really only suffering for 3-4 hours a day. Hahah. I promise it's not that bad, but I figured I'd at least document my thoughts while he's gone.
I won my second military award. You can all now address me as Airman of the Year. Yes, that's correct...of the YEAR! It sounds super cool but I always have and always will believe that awards are kind of stupid. I don't care right now because anything that will make me look good on my next Warrant packet is welcome. I'm plan on blowing that award way out of proportion. Why wouldn't the Army aviation community want the Airman of the year? They better want her.
I am excited about 2013. I have a lot of good plans but nothing fun really starts until April when Corey gets home. We're going to France ya'll! Then to Spain, a cruise to Scandinavia to see the Northern Lights and Croatia. Here is my list of Resolutions:

Turn 32
Reapply to be a helicopter pilot

It's really short this year, but I seriously can't think of anything else. I can't decide if I've straight given up or if I'm being realistic. Either way, that's all anyone is getting out of me. I guess I'm just pretty satisfied this year. Of course I'll continue with my life long goal of being 10 lbs lighter (it doesn't matter how much I weigh, I always want to weigh 10 lbs less), trying to get a Bachelor's degree and being the world's greatest Aunt.

I have no recent pictures so here's an old one that depicts how I think everyone feels in the middle of winter.

Me in Kindergarten. It was our Halloween parade and I was mad at my mom for not putting the right thing in my lunch. I'll use this as a reminder why I don't want a baby. Hahaha. Paula Burt is a SAINT!
