CupCake going on a trip….TO THE BEACH!!!!! WOO-HOO can hardly wait!

So, this beach bum girl is finally headed back to the gulf to soak up some rays and enjoy the sand, surf and well, let’s face it a bit of alcohol will be involved.  Currently cramming to get all of my class work done, this Pre-mester for summer is going to be the death of me, full course credits in 19 days…well let’s just say taking 20 quizzes in 19 days along with homework discussions and oh yeah a text book that is 687 pages long not including the appendix that is utilized for the problem sets.  Did I mention they didn’t think they packed enough in the text so they wrote on the inside of the cover in the front lots of tables and data that for whatever reason the professor thinks we should read.  Oh well, class started on May 11th and ends on May 29th, at this point I have completed 14 quizzes, and I am on a roll.   I should just relax since it’s only one class for the pre-mester I have 6 more to go this summer, but hey, I love to put myself under pressure.  Heck if I don’t do it someone else will, so it may as well be for something I am striving for….

Well back to the purpose of this post…..I AM GOING TO THE BEACH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  So excited and MAX is too, he just doesn’t quite know it yet.  His lazy self is sleeping on the floor right now next to me while I take a short break to post this since I may have fried some brain cells with the last quiz, really we need to know how much a person’s “VO2 Max” is the maximum?  Anywho, I AM GOING TO THE BEACH!!!!!!!! Can you tell I am excited…..more to come when my brain cells recover!!!!

Here’s a shot of what I dream of…..

Happy Monday everyone!

Stuck in Study Mode, but listening to some relaxing music….CHEERS TO SPRING!!!!

Marketing vs. Statistics, I’ll take marketing everyday of the week!  Preparing for another trip to Phoenix and while excited, I have so much to do to stay on top of it all.  Homework may be the death of me, as if work/work wasn’t enough stress.  On the bright side of things, what a beautiful day today.

The sun was out, the birds were singing, I think the park was probably a fantastic place to be today!  Two days ago for a brief moment I was able to enjoy the miraculous site of spring coming to life before my very eyes, a blossom filled bright pink tree was literally raining flower petals.  If I had not been required to go to ANOTHER meeting, I would have gone and laid under the tree and let the flowers just rain down on me.  It is those childish treats that keep this Beach Bum CupCake happy for a bit while landlocked still.

Today, I actually left work before the sunset and had the opportunity to sit outside on the deck and enjoy a nice relaxing refreshment while watching the sun go down and the moon was shining bright in the sky all at the same time.  (Should have snapped a picture of that…)

I am actually excited about cycling class tomorrow, the professor got a flat on Monday so class was cancelled after making the 30 minute drive across town…oh well got my butt out of bed.  I may wake up early, there is a better reason for an early rise when at the beach…just not so inclined here especially when it is cold, I do love to run when it gets warmer in the morning, early before everyone starts moving, to enjoy the quite beginning of a new day.  Currently it is hailing outside at my house, imagine that from snow on Saturday, rain and extreme thunderstorm on Sunday, warm and sunny Monday and even warmer on Tuesday to hail Tuesday evening.  Well at least the weather isn’t boring here.

Cheers to Spring….and sunny warmer weather, I may no longer need to be a hibernating beach bum.

I love studying to Vivaldi….

Final push to exam….

Go figure trying to pull a humorous image to portray Death by Statistics and I just get a bunch of statistics about death.  Oh well thought this might help me.  I am so up tight right now, I am being told to CALM DOWN!!!!  Did I mention Math is not my favorite subject!
