My nursing school applications are due tomorrow. The feeling of elation at having them fully submitted might rival the elation that I will feel when (if) I get accepted.
I have scheduled myself a nice massage this weekend to celebrate.

I have had two notably strange dreams in the past week.
First, I dreamed that Sammy was talking to me. I can't remember what I had asked him, but his exact response was:
"It's not about the money, money, money. I don't need your money, money, money. I just want to make the world dance. Forget about the price tag." Then he shook his head, crawled under his blanket, and went to sleep.
In my second dream, I was teaching my senior class and had the worst gas in the history of bad gas. It was loud and frequent and embarrassing. And, being seniors, they all commented on it. I woke up in a complete panic that it was real and I had officially lost all of their respect. It was not real, but whether or not I have their respect is still up in the air.

So, a few major events have occurred over the past few weeks:

that a lot of people would be embarrassed by, but of which I am immensely proud.

Since my New Year's resolutions were such a smashing success last year (not eating processed foods (with the exception of clearance holiday candy) and making my bed every day (I aim high, people)) I decided to make some new ones this year!
1. Keep my house organized. I already went through and donated 5 bags of old clothing, shoes, and other crap that I have had around my house for the past two years. I decided that if something has been sitting under my bed since I moved in, I probably didn't need it that badly. I am pretty sure I will not miss any of this stuff.
2. Track all of my expenses. I don't have a monthly budget, since certain my spending fluctuates pretty vastly from month to month (for example, January is a great month to buy clothes since there are a million after-Christmas clearance sales. And who can pass up a $30 down coat, or new running shoes (pink ones!) for half prices? I, for one, cannot.) However, I want to be aware of where my money is going, so I keep a running tab in my phone of how much I am spending on gas, household stuff, groceries, clothing, entertainment, and Sammy. Apparently those are the six most important things in my life.
3. Actually plan my meals. I buy a lot of great-looking stuff at the grocery store (coconut flour) and then have no idea what to do with it. So my goal is to plane what I will make to eat each week (dinner, dessert, snack, etc.) and only buy the food I need for my meals. Hopefully this will result in less wasted food. (hopefully)
4. Get accepted to nursing school. There's not a whole lot more to say about that.
