dear suck + good luck elder hansen.

It's not even finals week till next week...
I am sooo overwhelmed.
I don't sleep well [hence me writing this at midnight]
I eat garbage. (well not literally, just that stuff that makes thunder thighs occur[which aren't needed, cuz they're already here])
I survive off Caffeine... Coke to be specific [as in the soda, not the drug. lol]
I want to pull my hair out
I want to severely damage something
I want to go ninja on my art board and break it in half as well as all other art things that i bought that are just going to go to waste.
I want to shred every piece of fabric in my room and glue it to the walls with the $10 glue gun i had to buy just for my art final, that also gave me a 2nd degree burn.
I want to paint the walls with the water colors i bought.... the teacher never got around to that assignment
I want to plant a money tree and hopefully it will grow from the college back to my pocket
I want to cry cuz institute ends tomorrow
I want to turn back time and take different classes cuz im not good enough to be an artist. Excuse me if you don't consider pushing a button that takes a picture an art.
next week have to stay till thursday to simply go to class and hand in an assignment... that i'm already done with. 
I just wanna go home! 

One of my best friends, Nate Hansen, entered the MTC today!
He'll be serving in Argentina. Cool eh? 
He really has been my best friend for the past year, and I really have no idea what the heck i'm going to do with myself when i go home on weekends. lol
                                                      I think he's pretty awesome
                                                     He's my husband number 4. lol
                              Good luck my dear buddy!
