P. Sherman, 42 Wallaby Way, Sydney

Self confidence. Dispositional or State self-confidence? I wonder what the rest of Maymont looks like in the fall? I need to brainstorm for taking Emily's pictures next weekend. Prophecy-a "behavior guidance" thing. I wonder when Katelyn James will get settled and have another blog post? Oh yeah, why haven't I blogged in forEVER? Self efficacy; it's sources. Do I need to get a drink from the Student Union for lunch? Oh, that's right. I still have a Diet Mountain Dew in my fridge. I can't wait to go to the pumpkin patch Saturday and then carve pumpkins. I also want to still make those pumpkin spice least I think that's what they're called. Dang, and then I need to still go to the Y to take pictures for my paper. "Mallory, why do you think Self-Confidence influences performance?" Is he really calling on me, or is it a rhetorical question and he's just saying my name like he starts every sentence with a student's name? Yep, he's really calling on me. I'm glad I know the answer.

I consider myself the Dory of real life. I have the hardest paying attention in class sometimes. My mind just goes off on the most random tangents. But I don't always mind that...haha.
Soooo here just some random thoughts.

-this is my 92nd blog post. Sooo close to #100!

-I have been introduced to and grown to love the Pumpkin Spice Latte from Einstein's! It's the first coffee drink I've ever liked and I am excited, yet also said that it's just a seasonal flavor. Hopefully the Christmas season brings another tastey flavor!

-I absolutely love my RA staff. End of story. They are amaaaazing. (And I know I say that so often. But every day just builds our friendships so much more!)

-This semester is almost over. Ok so we still have just over 4 weeks left of classes, and then exam week, but really..that's not much! Of course I'll still have 2-3 quizzes each week and I have 3 tests left, but it's all good.

-I bought my first Christmas decoration on Monday. Yes, on October 25th, exactly 2 months before Christmas, I bought my first Christmas decoration. It's just a simple green glittery ornament that says "Merry Christmas." It's hanging on my wall above my desk. I love it!

-Speaking of Christmas decorations, I made one of those paper chains that I used to love making when I was younger. Okay, I still love to make them. It's red and green and each ring has a date on it from now until the day I go home for Christmas break. I take one off every morning when I wake up. Well, some mornings it's 2 if I've woken up late. Then it's kinda more fun to take off more and the chain gets shorter sooner!

-I still need to work on my website more. I haven't been able to edit it in a while, but I want just enough time to sit down and do everything I want at one time, instead of going back and forth twenty times a day.

That is all for now! I still have one more class

exciting day!

I had such a great morning today! I got to go with my cousin, my Aunt Diane, and my cousin's bridal party for her to go look for a wedding dress today!

I have never been with anyone to pick out a dress before and it was so much fun! All of the dresses my cousin tried on were absolutely beautiful! I've never seen so many pretty dresses in one place! The one she picked out is so perfect for her and stunning!

And most of the conversations today were about her wedding and details and such...

It all made me love weddings so much more.

Check it Out!

Since it has been exactly a week since I started working on a new project, I thought it would be time to share the progress. I don't exactly remember when the idea clicked into my head; it just kind of happened. You know, one of those things. Are you ready to know what??

I made a website!! And it's so funny because my Aunt Diane just announced her new website too!! : Purple Chair Photography. So be sure to check that out too!!

Some time ago the thought of making a website had popped into mind, but I just never went anywhere with it. I thought it would be a waste of time. But last week, something just told me to go ahead and make one!

And funny enough, four days after making it, I had someone ask me to do their Senior Pictures! I don't think that was just a coincidence (and my grandma, "Ganny" always has great stories about coincidences!!), I think it was a God thing in the works, when I randomly got the idea to actually make a site.

So, anyway, here is the link for you!

It's still a work in progress so keep checking back!

Is it okay to want to have about 5 jobs at the same time??

Because that is what I'm currently contemplating...
