Five months before it officially opens its doors, the $27 million Public Safety Academy of Northeast Indiana is already making an impression.

City, state and federal officials were given a tour of the 132,000-square-foot academy Thursday, almost a year after its construction started.

Also, sorry for any jiggling of the camera :D



I've tried teas, medication, milk, calcium supplements, going to bed early, going to bed late, hot shower, cold shower, etc. etc. Nothing seems to work. And I had a really bad experience with one of the medications awhile back. I hated the feeling of being forced into sleep, so I forced myself to stay awake through the effects of the pill. OMG, bad bad.

Anyway, I'm going to give Melatonin a try and see if it helps.

So Saturday night I had a bday party at Jimmer's! It was a blast. But I passed out too soon. haha! Anyway, there are pictures on facebook if you want to check it out. Thanks to everyone who came and also for everyone that grabbed my camera and took pics! :D


Weekend Fun

A lot of us went down to Zach's in Indy for the weekend for a friend's 21st bday. It was a blast. Lots of laughs, upside down margaritas, snake bites, kamikazes, the compatability game, who's line is it anyway, and cheese burger paradise. And the Colts won.
