ToT and PSA

This week has already been nuts! I have submitted two big projects and have another one to finish up and submit tonight. Next week I have three finals. I know things could be worse, but all of this stuff is just, bam-bam-bam one after another and that is the part that stresses me out.

I am one of those people that if I'm not extrememly busy, I do not manage my time well. I think that is what happened this semester. I wasn't go-go-go ALL the time and that hurt me.

I'm not worried though. After this semester I will be taking at least SIX classes each semester, not four. Maybe I'm crazy, maybe I'm a genius. Who knows. I can always drop one of the classes if I get the syllabus and it's too much.

Just last night I finished up a PSA that is due for my ed tech class. I used iMovie, which I had never used before and I really enjoyed it! My computer had iMovie '06 on it and I needed iMovie '11 so over the weekend I had to update my entire processing system, just so I can have the app store, just so I could buy iMovie '11 (it was only $15), it was a lot of work for this teeny, tiny 2 and 1/2 minute video!

Hope you like! (and I hope it plays! Blogger is not a fan of videos!)

Here are today's Ten on Tuesday! I liked these random questions that made me loooong for summer. It's almost here! ALMOST!

Thank you Chelsea for providing some wonderful summer questions!

1. What is the weather like in your city today?
It is beautiful! The sun is shining and we're supposed to get up to the low 60s. Tomorrow should be even nicer, we're supposed to get up to the upper 60s! This is definitely long overdue!

2. Do you like the zoo?
How can one night like the zoo? It's such a happy place with lots of kids and cute animals! Our zoo here in Des Moines is getting remodeled right now and I am excited to visit once it's done.

3. Do you eat coconut?
Yum! Love it!

4. Have you ever hammered a nail? Are you good at it?
Yes, I have hammered a nail. I think I'm okay at it! I've never it my finger with the hammer!

5. Does your family have a vacation destination that you visit often?
My parents love Cancun, but my sister and I have never gone with them. It's more of their adult thing? Growing up we always went to different places!

6. How many pillows do you sleep with?
One big body pillow and then a pillow on top of that. There are 7 pillows on my bed though... not counting the little decorative ones. I like the way they look!

7. What’s the first thing you do when you wake up?
Usually pee. Or look at my phone.

8. Will you send your kids to summer camp?
Definitely! Only if they want to, of course. When I was little I would get homesick really bad and I couldn't sleep over anywhere until I was at least 12 years old. I would get violently sick! Growing up I thought I was going to have to live with my parents forever.

9. What do you put in your baked potatoes?
I love baked potatoes with butter, sour cream and lots of s & p. Mmmmm, I haven't had one for awhile though because I have recently drastically cut down my dairy intake.

10. Did you take swimming lessons as a kid?

Just from my dad! I remember him teaching me to dive. He is NOT a patient teacher and I was scared of diving! I remember comparing it to doing a cartwheel (I was big into tumbling) but for some reason I was just scared to death to dive head first into the water!

Ok, your turn!

Are you good with technology? Does it come naturally to you? Are you looking forward to anything exciting this summer?

Great video - I think that is the song I suggested!! :)

We like our baked potatoes the same way. Well, besides the fact that i use the dairy substitute version of everything. ;)

Holy cannasta, that is a lot of pillows!!!
