Exams are done

The beginnings of my (very hopeful) wedding dress

So I'm done with school until fall. I think I'll get an A in one class, and then a B/B+ in the other. I guess its not bad for not being in school for...3 years? I don't know how I survived either. I was restricting a lot during the week.

But not so much today. And I feel like a whale. I'm not going to complain.

Yesterday something fun happened :) I got an new digital SLR! I can't wait to start playing photographer again, and with my own camera!!!!! I'm tickled pink. I'm giddy like a little kid on halloween.

And I am getting my Visa tomorrow..permission granted to go to Congo monday. I didn't post about this yet because it was a sudden decision. I didn't think I could get a visa approved in time to go with my parents, but looks like I'll be going.

I didn't tell P about it until yesterday, because I didn't know if it was official or not. He hugged me close and I thought he was a little teary eyed "be careful". He recently got back from religious service for two years in Kenya(for those who don't know the background. He's been home since december)

I love him. In fact I need to go pick him up from work. Try to love yourself. Try. It breaks my heart to see everyone sad, I wish we could all be worry free

It's a beautiful cut for your shoulders. Looks like it'll be magical, as every wedding dress should be. Congo! Wehew! I'm going there for a missions trip in about three years. I'm sure it'll be amazing for you. It'll be like a super-duper adventure. Best of luck. I'll miss your posts. Life has its mountains and valleys. You'll make it. You're strong.

What you're leaving? You and Harlowe are my goto blogs. You inspire me because of your work (out)s and we are the same height. I know what my goal weight looks like. Post when you can. The dress looks awesome. Loves the fitted top shows off your tiny waist.
