Suggestions on Video Cameras Wanted!

I need a camcorder for school so that I can tape myself practicing my skills. (No...I am not that vain that I want to "tape myself"!) HAHA!

So I am debating on what I should get. I don't want to spend TOO much money, but I definitely want it to be worth the money. Hopefully I will be able to use it for fun and not just school. I could spend a little extra money and purchase a Flip. (which is shown below...yes it is pink because let's be honest...if I could a Flip it would be the pink one!) picture from

Or...I could be cheap and get something else. I'm not even sure what the something else would be at this second, but there are plenty of camcorders that are cheaper.

Do any of you know anything about camcorders and have suggestions? I really don't even know where to start when looking at these. I've heard that the Flip is good, but is it worth the extra money? I am willing to spend it if that's what the rest of the world thinks is the best way to go. Thanks for the input! :-)

Oh how I love them! :-) I just got back from hanging out with 4 wonderful women who I'm in school with. These ladies are great. We met up for dinner and wine at this great place in town. It was fabulous. These girls are just a fun group of people to be around. We smile, laugh, and cry with each other. It's so awesome how when you "click" with a group of people it just happens.

The boyfriend of one of the other girls is in the Marines and he just deployed a few weeks ago. I'm glad that I have been going through this experience so that I can try to help her get through this. I know how rough it can be! ... and let's be honest... it doesn't necessarily get better. It's more that you learn how to cope with it better. I am so glad that I have this close group of friends to finish up this deployment and school year with. However, I'm going to miss them all when I graduate! :-(

What types of things do you do with your girlfriends?!

I am so proud to be a Duke Dog today! We beat VA Tech 21-16. Many of you might not realize the significance of this...but although JMU has been a good team in the past, they should NEVER be able to beat VT. However, the team proved that wrong today because it happened. Great job today Dukes! So proud to "Bleed Purple"

Random ~ But FUN!

First of all...this is my 100th post. I know this means that I am supposed to be answering the questions from the Q & A. But unfortunately I have not yet had the time to sit and do this, nor do I really have the time right now (I probably shouldn't even be posting at all at the moment!). To those of you who have asked questions or are curious of my answers to those that have been asked...don't worry, I will get to them...probably this weekend. Thanks so much for asking questions...and if you still have questions you have one last chance to ask! And yay for 100 Posts!

So I've been putting off posting because I wanted to do the Q & A for Post 100 but just haven't had a chance, which is why I decided that I needed to just post and get over it. :-) Sorry! So, I had a wonderful day at the spa on Saturday with my roomie. We both got a manicure, pedicure, hour long massage, and had our hair styled! It was an absolute blast. If you ever get the chance to it! It was so was greatly needed and greatly appreciated by both of us. Therefore, I have to say thanks to A for making this possible. You are so wonderful and spoil me so much! I love you!! XOXO

Today was my first day at practicum for school counseling. I will be at a middle school for 1-2 days a week this semester. Today was the students' first day of school. I was fortunate to be able to go today and see what it is like to start off a new school year. I had a great day. I was a little nervous, but I had a lot of fun and I think it went pretty well. I have been working on my plans for this semester of working with students. I can't wait to really start working with them, rather than "just" dealing with scheduling problems.

After my day at school, I had 2 three hour classes. Therefore, it has been an incredibly long day of schooling. So, it is time for me to get some sleep. Good night all! Have a great day

An Emotional Wreck

AHHHHH...GRRRRR!!! I am sick of being an emotional wreck right now. I was at church this evening for a meeting and we were going around introducing ourselves. While introducing ourselves we were stating how we have seen God in our week. After saying who I was, I started sobbing. REALLY?!?! It's been a busy week so I thought I was "over" the fact that I was missing A so much. Well...I was definitely wrong. Fortunately I had my wonderful roomie there and everybody was incredibly supportive. Obviously I got through it, but I just wish that these emotions didn't just randomly hit me.

Other than my being an emotional wreck this evening, today was a great day. I worked this morning and then spent some time at my practicum site. Tuesday is the first day of school and all the students came in today to get their schedules. It was great getting to meet some of them. I can't wait for this semester to really get underway.

First Week

I have completed my first week of classes for my LAST fall semester EVER of school! HAHA. I's a HUGE stretch of trying to get in a "last" but hey it is one! I have one class on Monday nights and two on Tuesday nights this semester. It shouldn't be too bad of a semester. Lots of work but it should be fun. One of my courses is practicum and I am really looking forward to finally getting to practice all that I have learned. I have been placed in a local middle school (6th-8th grade) for this experience. I think that I will learn a lot from my site supervisor and all of the students at the school. I will be starting that on Tuesday, which is the public schools' first day of school. Should be an interesting day! :-)
