Day 30: a picture of yourself this day and 5 good things that happened since you started the challenge

1. I now have a mentor and she is so awesome!! We meet weekly and I have learned so much already.... I really enjoy our time!
2. I successfully asked for a few days off from work over spring break.... so I am looking forward to going on a much needed vacation next week!
3. My question of where am I going to go to school has finally been answered. After many applications, work, interviews and stress... I am going to go to Midwestern University in Glendale Arizona... I leave towards the end of May!
4. My adorable nephew, Noah, started smiling! When he smiles at me it melts my heart... it's the best thing ever!
5. I got to talk to my grandma (we all call her Gomie) on the phone. She calls about once a week but I'm never around when she calls... but this time I was! It was awesome I haven't talked to her for months!

Day 29: 3 Wishes

1. That God would have complete control of my life.... that I would know and follow the plan he has for me and live it to it's fullest
2. That Zach would move with me to AZ... that we would get married and live happily ever after..... is that too honest and awkward to put on here..... oh well
3. To be able to travel around the world and help people in many different locations

Day 28: Something That Stresses You Out

Many things stress me out, but nothing like school and exams! I have a tendency to push myself really hard in school. I have always done really well, but I have always had to work really hard to achieve my grades. My freshman, sophomore and junior years at the UM I basically lived in the library. It seemed I usually had an exam in something every week.... it was terrible.... and of course I HAD to do awesome in every class, on every test, every project.... everything! I would stress myself out all the time..... major burn out! Presentations were the worst! And it seemed like every class had a big final presentation..... public speaking makes me want to puke.. let's just put it that way! I get shaky, my voice starts to stutter, I forget everything I was going to say.... it's basically the worst thing... and I would stress out over the presentations from day 1 of the class... that's right syllabus day I would look through the plans and... yep there's a presentation great....... hate this class!

I'm kind of a perfectionist.. this combined with my determination and dedication would seem like good things when it comes to school... and it is... except it dooms me to stressing out. But it's just because I care and think good grades are important. But like most things its about finding a balance.... that I have yet to find!

Day 26: Your Dream Wedding

I love weddings... and as every girl does I have often thought of what I want my wedding to be like... beautiful, everyone I know attending, perfect weather, flowers everywhere, the perfect day! Some people like to have their weddings in some far off amazing place like Belize, Hawaii, the Bahamas. The only problem with that is.. I actually want people to be able to come.....
So my dream wedding..... I guess I don't really have it all planned out and that's probably a good thing, but I do know of some qualities that I do dream of it having.
~ A groom
~ A normal ceremony containing a pastor and a church.... actually it doesn't have to be a church I don't guess and I don't know if I want it to be inside or outside
~ Lots of flowers
~ I want it to be a lot of fun for everyone involved and everyone that comes... one of my friends got married recently and she did a great job of this! Weddings can tend to be dry and boring sometimes... not mine!
~ Like 3 or 4 or 5 bridesmaids
~ A beautiful wedding dress!
~ I don't usually like to be the center of attention, but in this case I want everyone to be there!
~ Cake.. I often think about making my own wedding cake.... but that would probably turn into a disaster

I want my wedding to be      Beautiful  .  Elegant  .  Intimate  .  Fun
