For once in my life, things are going right...

I am still alive, and I will try to keep this blog up to date more often than I have. I am really exhausted after just finishing up my first ever 4.0 semester!!! My overall GPA is now up to 3.2. I also just found out that I am now in the nursing program at Lake Superior College for the fall. It is actually a new program that they are just now starting for people who are already LPN's working, and have competed all of their pre-req's and have a high enough GPA. I may not finish up until the summer of '09 as some of the clinical time is spread out more to accomodate more students.

I also bought a new set of golf clubs, and all of them are coming slowly but surely in the mail and such. I am pretty much just waiting on the iron set to be delivered to Nevada Bob's so I can pick them up and start my PGA career if the whole nursing thing doesn't work out. I spent a good deal of money on everything, but I figure that this set will last me for the next 10-15 years so it will be worth the investment.

In addition I am on a "program" that I should have a majority of my debt paid off by the time that Jodi and I are married this fall. I finally started to read and implement a program from a book that my parents bought for me before I went to Germany. The book is "The Total Money Makeover" by Dave Ramsey. Good book with some great advice in it. As long as you're willing to be serious about saving money and paying off debt. Anyhow, I digress...

And finally, we are getting ever closer(just over 5 months) to me marrying the greatest woman in the world!!! It still hasn't really set in that it's only 5 or so months away, but it's starting to with the wedding plans and everything. I really am looking forward to getting all of the wedding stuff over with and just being married. And then the fairytale begins right? Well, I know that I will be happy!

Until next time...

Way to go, Jess! Good work on your GPA and I am so happy you are able to get into a nursing program this fall, too! It does work to be systematic about your bills, saving, etc. I know you can do a lot if you put your mind and heart into it. You are awesome!! And, I am glad you are my son!! Love you, Mom
