Floral Design

I went to my first floral design lab and I loved it! Flowers bring happiness to everything and they are pink which makes it like 100 times better! Next time I am going to try and branch out and pick something that is a different color... although I do love pink! I made the mistake of picking out pink flowers when I was already wearing a bright pink scarf and my pink backpack and with the pink of the flowers and the wrapping I was getting some interesting looks... Oh well I am happy! Here are some pictures of my happiness!

On the kitchen table... ya the arrangement is a little weird but I will get better. She hasnt shown us how to really arrange yet, just how to wrap, that is why the wrapping is beautiful!

Abstract Writing or Writing an Abstract

For tomorrow I have to turn in an abstract for my 490 class on one of the dullest articles of all time and if the professor hadn't removed all of the tracking information I would have added a link on here so everyone could enjoy reading it as much as I did.

It is a study about the Dutch shipping merchants during the reign of Charles V and the effect they had on warships and the Government in general. The author states that the reason the Dutch merchantmen lacked naval protection was because their backers were to stingy.

Above is the really rough draft of what is soon to be my abstract. It only has to be 250 words... but I had better really know and address that thesis and arguments. Dang it. That means that I have to read the article again, all 24 pages of boringness.

Wish me luck!

Back in PROVO and the SNOW!

So I have been back in Provo for almost 4 days and it has been snowing for almost 3 of them. This does not inspire confidence in the upcoming semester but I still am trying to keep a positive attitude! I am still trying to figure out what classes and everything I am doing so it is a bit stressful... but I have a few days to figure it out. Last semester! Yahoo!
