On Top of the World

Hey everyone what’s shakin’?? I am in an awesome mood because as of 11 am today… I am DONE with my first semester of graduate school…done, done, DONE!  To be honest, it’s been quite the long road so far.  My program certainly isn’t everything I’d hoped it would be, and that’s awfully disappointing.  On top of everything, an audio recorded final exam I had was run over by my professor’s car and half the class had to re-do it!! Suckage!  But I’m done, so whatever! 🙂

Tomorrow is my company Christmas party, and I’m going apartment hunting!  Should be fun! 🙂

How are YOU all doing…that’s what I wanna hear about!  I’ve been eating the usuals, along with a bit more junk then I’d care to admit.  Mozzerella sticks, McDonalds…who am I!?  Gotta knock that off pronto!  I’d much rather be indulging in some tasty holiday delights instead!

What’s this!?

Zevia!! A big thanks to my amiga Kristin for the Zevia giveaway she hosted recently!  I won and got 24 cans of this all natural, calorie free, artifical sweetener free, Stevia sweetened soda!  Frankly, it rocks!  I’ve tried the Black Cherry, Cola, Natural Twist (Lemon Lime), and Ginger Ale flavors and have not been disappointed!  I wish stores sold this more commonly, because once you drink this on the regular, you won’t want to go back to Diet soda that’s artificially sweetened, that’s for sure!

It’s a lot less sweet than traditional diet soda, and the Cola flavor almost had a lemony taste to it as well.  But I really enjoyed them, and they didn’t give you that bloated feeling that traditional diet sodas sometimes do!  It’s a winner winner in my book!  Thanks Kristin! And thanks Zevia! 🙂

How’s everyone’s holiday preparations going?

    YAAAAY! Glad to hear that you got everything done, even if it was super lame. I’ve never seen that soda before. Sounds good, though.

    And apartment hunting?! What?!

    OMG! An apartment!?!?! We do have a lot to catch up on!! Let’s meet up Monday. Text me when you read this. That soda looks good. I need to try some. Sometimes I just really want that delicious, ice cold, fizzy goodness (especially if I’m enjoying a Sunshine Burger).
    Isn’t it great to be done with finals?!?! I could hardly drag myself from bed during the semester and as soon as it was over, my internal clock went right back to happily being an early bird.
    What size shoe do you wear??
