Spanish ads and Stormtroopers, oh my!

Classes seem to be flying by so quickly. Expect for the times I have projects and papers due. Lol We really only have 1 month left then finals then a short break. I'll be graduating at the end of next semester and I can hardly stand it. It has taken me what seems like forever to get here.

I had to do an ad in Spanish about a state park. It was easy to compile but not so easy to do in front of a class. I can write papers with the best of them though I dislike it immensely, especially starting them. For the life of me though, no matter how many times I stand in front of people, I just can't seem to shake one single ounce of this fear of public speaking. I stumbled a few times through the Spanish ad and had to look at my paper to remember. Once I stumble my mind just goes blank. I think I concentrate too much on the mess up and not enough on pulling it back together. Ah well. It went ok though. I survived. Lol

Had my birthday in October and turned....none of your business. Old huh? :P Really though, my birthday was great. I also look forward to carving a pumping every year. I love, love, love Halloween and I love carving pumpkins. I usually take the seeds and bake them afterwards. Thinking about this makes me want to go grab a pumpkin just to bake the seeds now! Anyway, usually I do what ever I choose to do but this time around my DH requested a pattern. So I obliged. :) And here is what our pumpkin looked like:

Halloween 2013: Stormtrooper Pumpkin Carving

I had fun and I like the way it turned out. All in all our Halloween was a great one and what makes it even better was that there was leftover candy for us! Bonus!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Halloween, if you celebrated that is. On to the next holiday....Thanksgiving.
