White Scentsy fragrance warmer with sun design.

I so want this! And the butterfly design too!


I am very excited to announce that I have become an Independent Scentsy Consultant! I have always loved fragrances/candles, etc. When I learned that a very good friend of mine was involved with Scentsy, I knew I had to give it a try (she’s an even bigger candle lover than I am–and that’s saying something!).

With my schedule for school (especially this semester since I’m taking five classes), I just don’t have the time or energy for a ‘real’ job. Scentsy should be perfect for me, because I can make my own hours, and they even supply me with an online store! I really think this is going to be a huge help–and probably lots of fun too!

If you would like to take a look at what Scentsy has to offer, please feel free to visit my site: Stacey’s Scentsy Page (there’s also a link built into the Scentsy graphic on the right sidebar). If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.


Happy Wednesday and thanks for linking up!

One of my dear friends gave me this beautiful plant for my birthday. I’m not sure what kind it is.

Happy Wednesday!


My Class Ring

Posted in College, Life, Photographs, Tim | 1 Comment »

We ordered my class ring on January 31, and were told it would take two to three months to receive it. So, when I signed for a small package from the mail carrier today, I thought it was the battery I had ordered for Tim’s G1. It turned out to be my class ring! What a wonderful surprise, and just in time for my birthday!

The photo doesn’t do the ring justice. It is beautiful!


Thank you, Tim, for such a wonderful and meaningful gift! It’s all the more special because it came from you!

A professor is someone who talks in someone else’s sleep.
-W. H. Auden

Three good professors out of five isn’t too bad, right? And, really, the two not-so-great ones aren’t that bad; I’ve had much worse!

The professor for my online psychology class won’t respond to emails. Which is frustrating. On two different quizzes, I am 99.9% certain that one question on each were incorrectly marked  wrong. If those quizzes were fixed, I would have 100% on both of them (I have 100s on the other four quizzes), so this is important to me. I emailed him, asking for clarification. No response. I did mention this is an online class, right?

The second professor at the bottom of my list is mostly just really boring. She seems very young (but, at my ripe old age of “29″ [ahem], a lot of people do), and probably hasn’t quite found her groove yet. Most classes consist of copying LOTS of notes from her LONG PowerPoint slides. So far, she has been beating us over the head lecturing almost exclusively on using APA formatting in our writing. It feels more like an English class than a psychology class. I will survive. As I said, I’ve dealt with much worse.

Fortunately, I do have three professors who are interesting and helpful, and they definitely help to balance any negative effects of the others.
