Expectation vs Reality

Have you seen 500 days of Summer? You know the part when they show his expectations vs what is actually happening and in the expectations, things are great....but in reality, they aren't so great.

I have this problem.

I set my expectations.  And then the reality slaps me in the face.

They say things happen unexpectedly.  So I sit around expecting the unexpected.  You may think that's not possible, but I do it. All the time.

I dream up the perfect setting.  The way things should go.  Then they don't go anything like that and it leaves me feeling lost and betrayed.  Betrayed by someone or something that only existed in my expectations.

I don't know why my reality isn't enough, but it just isn't anymore.  The reality of what my life actually is doesn't live up to the expectations I have in my head.  The person that I am doesn't nearly live up to who I want to be.  The things that happen to me aren't what I feel they should be.

I hate that I feel like this.  I know that I am so blessed and I'm so grateful for the things I've been given.

Too school for cool.

So guys yesterday was one of the best days of my life. Wanna know why???
Because I went to my last {awful} lecture class of the semester!! 
Wow. Let's take a minute for that to set in.
I'm done.
Granted I have the practicum for the rest of the semester, but that's a whole nother ball game. 
And the ball game of death is over.  

But, there were some good times during these classes.
We certainly found ways to entertain ourselves. 
For Instance.....

Orange section sculptures

Math manipulative fun!

Hand art!

First of all don't judge the bush that is my eyebrow.
Second of all I fell asleep. 
And got a sweet mark from it

It's happy to see you!

Tin foil people that express our emotions. 

And last but definitely not least, these beautiful ladies. 
Seriously though there is no way in hades I would have made it through without them.

Tender Mercies

The other day, I had an experience that I attributed to luck.  I told multiple people that I was lucky because of how things turned out.  Then, as I told one sweet girl in my classes, she responded by saying, "What a tender mercy."

Slap. In. The. Face.

I thought about it for a minute and here's what I've come up with.

There's no such thing as luck.  God is in the details of our lives and every blessing comes from Him.  He love us. He loves me. 

Weekend Recapin'

So the weekend  was pretty legit.  
I did a lot of homework, and watching hulu....but there aren't any photos of that because it was boring.  
Here's the exciting parts :)

Happy Birthday, pull your pants up.

Yes this is a post about the Biebs. Sorta. It's also a post about butts.  Weird huh.

So I'm a Justin Bieber fan.  Not avid {he's no Zac Efron} but I do enjoy him.  I enjoyed his movie. And I enjoy his music.  It's only respectful for me to wish him a HAPPY HAPPY eighteenth birthday.  Weird. Justin Bieber, the 13 year old who "changed" the life of many a young girl, is eighteen years old.  He's no longer a youngen.  Weird.

Now, butts.  Watch this video.

Ok so you didn't have to watch to the whole video to discover the butt. Just until 0:42..... Hello Justin's Undies.

Dear Justin,
you are 18 now.  It's time to keep your pants pulled up over your underwear.
P.s. you're cute:)
Love, Amy
