OWE: Update

As of today there are only 41 DAYS LEFT UNTIL THE WEDDING. You have GOT to be kidding me...... I knew once school ended the rest of the days before the wedding would just fly right by me and I wouldn't even be aware of it until a moment like this. SMH, I need to get with it!

I am here with an update, this one will serve as the one before the finalized update which I plan to do the first week in July; 2 wks before the wedding *GULP*......

See how my plans are unfolding after the jump....

My hair is currently in a protective style of senegalese twists until *crosses fingers* the end of summer school..... It's been up for about 3 weeks already and I've only had 3 of them slip out in the very back. If I can get them to hold up for another 3 wks I will be a happy camper. I spray my hair with water and moisturize it every 2-3 days because I've just been so busy with school.... I decided to wash every 2wks with the twist in because of school also. I'll be due for another wash soon so I'll have to evaluate then how well my hair is holding up. I'm not sure if it's all new-new growth I see sprouting out of my twists or if its from the twist getting loose and exposing some old new growth but..... I think I may have hell on my hands when it's time to take down! Hopefully I have wonderful results then!

I am trying to stay diligent with working out at least 2x a week. I'm not going to tell you a story though: it's kinda complicated right now. SUMMER SCHOOL IS DICTATING MY LIFE. I told myself I was going to work out after clinical one day and although I did, I was so tired and hungry afterwards I could barely study! I need to figure out a way to make this work cause it's crunch time and there ain't no time for slacking. Matter of fact I need to be headed to the gym after I finish this...... Ish is getting real. Lol seriously though! I hopped on the scale the other day and I even though I still weigh about the same, My body shape has changed a bit; I LOOK slimmer, so maybe my weight has distributed to areas that fit. Hoping that is the case cause I need to still be able to fit into my dress come fitting time!

At this point, I don't even know what to think about my face. It's close time for a visit so right now my face is showing how much it really HATES ME. I honestly still can't tell if my scars are lightening up at all.... despite all my efforts. I am taking it all in stride though, and just continuing to do what I am doing in hopes that it is actually making a difference and I just can't see it yet. 

Mind and Spirit
Since beginning summer school I have learned (the hard way I might add) that I really have no choice but to be very consistent and efficient with my study habits. The class is exactly 6 wks of intense information with 5 exams and 4 quizzes..... basically an exam and quiz every week! If I want to be successful in this class I have to do more than just do my regular studying, I have to be engrossed in this course at all times. I didn't understand that at first and it showed on my first test score...... Oh but next time...... I am continually trying to stay on top of getting into The Word. I decided to read the Bible all the way through just to get a deeper understanding and because I have never attempted to do so before. I have faith that God will bring me through this class but now I realize that it's MY job to put in the work by studying fiercely so that He can bless me!

41 days!!!!!!! We shall see what the rest of the month holds.....
