Always up for a challenge….or two :)

I already messed up on my pledge to blog every day! Not entirely my fault. Woke up with NO internet (GASP!) and I didn’t get internet back until after 8 PM. I had to go over to my mother in laws to get some homework done, but I was distracted! I was so happy to heat my iPod ping when the internet was back! So I used that time to do TONS of homework! OK SO….. I Might of been on twitter, or Facebook a little too! I was up until 2 finishing with homework. But I could sleep soundly knowing the majority was not waiting for me in the morning! I would of never finished in time for class, and today would of been horrible!

We are changing buddies in week three, but I will still be in touch with my elf! There is still time to get in on the challenge for the next rounds.
