Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest? Luke 12:25-26

Summer. Finally.

The quarter from hell is over. I literally have had the worst quarter so far. It could have been worse, yes, but man this quarter was rough. However, despite all that happened, I still ended with a good GPA!

Enough about the past quarter, it's time to move on. It's time for... SUMMER!!! So far, my summer has been pretty chill, which is how I like it. There has been a lot of Harry Potter Weekend watching. My latest project is going through all the stuff I brought home and trying to weave it back into all the stuff I had left at home and make it all fit. I did clothes first and I have a VERY large stack of clothing/shoes that is going to Goodwill. This is quite a project, but I've got several days to get it done. I also have a scholarship application due soon that I need to get a move on doing. And then come July, I move back to Ruston! So little time! The last thing I want to happen is by the end of June, I finally have my stuff unpacked and situated for living at home, and then I have to turn around and pack it all up again for my new apartment! That would happen to me, lol.

I ordered some CF Silly Bandz recently and they arrived!! I'm so excited! Hear me out, I've *never* had the desire to wear Silly Bandz before in my life. Never. Just never felt the urge to buy a pack to wear or see what the shapes are. But then one day I found the CF Silly Bandz and that was the day I decided I wanted to wear Silly Bandz, but only these. Check them out:
CF Silly Bandz

They compliment my CF Awareness Band from Fatboy quite nicely. My right arm is all "Cure CF"ed out.

Me? I'm doing well. Excited about the future and what it may hold. It's a good day.

Benefit of having CF

So of course the most obvious main benefit of the common CF patient is the ability to eat whatever and not be the size of a house. My body and I decided to take full benefit of that "gift" from CF and I eat WHATEVER I want at any hour, and fight to put on the pounds. However, that "gift" sits at the top of my list tied with another: my abs.

I have mentioned this before, but it becomes ever more obvious during swimsuit season and since I've been coughing more lately. My abs and my back are ripped and I love it. If I'm wearing just a sports bra and some sweat pants, I look like I should be in a work-out video as the trainer. Y'all, I'm PROUD of my body. Ask 100 other 20 year old girls that and see if you can ever get that answer again. Having CF has definitely gifted me with a strong and healthy-looking core body that I'm proud of.

Also, school ends WEDNESDAY then I'm home for until the start of July. Then back to school.

See you on the other side of finals!

The Vest: Friend or Foe?

There are days when I finish the Vest and I want to give it a hug or a high five (if it had hands, of course). There are other days where the "minutes left" section seems to almost go backwards. Today is one of those days. I've had to stop it multiple times because my coughing is so extreme, I'm about to bring up the fantastic dinner I had. That, my friends, is a MISERABLE feeling. And I ate 2 hours ago. This was not a "somebody didn't wait 30 minutes after eating before swimming!" situation. This is just a "my Vest hates me" kinda day. Happens. Doesn't mean I shouldn't still use it. It just means today, I won't be smiling afterwards because I feel better, but more likely because I'm done! (2 more minutes.... almost there....)

Two weeks from today, so on May 18, I will be DONE with my sophomore year of college. :) But with every silver lining, there is a dark side: some of my best friends are graduating and moving away. :( Luckily, Skype exists so we can still help each other with what to wear when going out!!


So with summer so close, it just means finals are even closer. Oh boy. I can't wait. lol

Hope all is well with you. Have a fantastic day!
