Are we going to Scream again?

Hey, I hope everyone is having a great weekend! Tomorrow I plan on going to the local Apple Festival downtown and get my fall goodies this year. This Apple Festival normally has real kettle corn popcorn, many different food vendors, and a lot of cool little jewelry and craft stations. I bought five pairs of earrings last year that were seasonally-themed, and a whole bag of delicious kettle corn popcorn. I can't wait!

Speaking of fall.....Anyone have any good Halloween costumes planned for this year? I've seen a lot of e-mails going around giving tips on how to dress like Lady Gaga. Anyone daring to have a Poker Face or a Bad Romance this Halloween? lol

I also read in a magazine that the movie "Scream 4" is being planned for next April. It will reunite the original cast including Courtney Cox. Are you someone that has to see this latest installment, or are you someone who will pass on this release? I'm one that will pass on this, as I don't do slasher movies too well.

A New Website on PVCs

I'm not sure how many people know, but I have frequent PVC's, which are Premature Ventricular Contractions in the heart, and it can be be uncomfortable and scary. It feels like your heart skips a beat. If you can imagine how it would feel if your heart "hiccupped" a lot, obviously many would be worried, also. While I have been to the cardiologist and was told my heart is healthy and strong, and many people have PVCs, I still get anxiety when the PVCs occur. Sometimes they go away for a while, and sometimes, (like recently), they come back in full force.

I have been asking God to heal me of these PVCs, and I believe He will.

I have also found an interesting website during my research that has soothed my anxiety somewhat because it lets me know that there are other people out there with the same symptoms that I have.

Graduation and Beyond...

So, here I am, three months before graduation...and when I think about it, I kind of get scared. I have waited to get out of college really since I started. I have longed to walk across a stage in effort to grab my diploma that will symbolize all the stress, all the late nights, and all the studying and time consumption that has constituted my life for the last four years.
I'm don't feel overwhelmingly frightened, but I do feel like, "Ok, now that I've got my degree, what now?"
I know I will start looking for a job within my field, but it's the fact that I will actually be starting my career that has me stop in my tracks when I think about it.
I'm definitely ready to take the next step in my life, and I look forward to each step the future will bring, especially having a place of my own. Even Sean said, "You'll actually have to do laundry." Well, he has no room to talk, he doesn't do laundry, either. :)
But I definitely recognize that this is a turning point in my life and I am optimistic for the change, but at the same time...I am curious about the unknown.

Two Books in Two Months

I have recently finished two books in the last two months, Confessions of a Shopaholic and Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West.
