Sup friends. This week has been pretty uneventful for the most part. Here are a few highlights.
- Sunday was my half birthday. Now I have a little less than 6 months until I can legitimately sing Taylor Swift’s 22 and understand what it means. LOL
- Tuesday was Mizzou’s 175th birthday. Happy Birthday, Mizzou! Thanks for the free cake and t-shirt!
- Also on Tuesday, I ran into my cousin in the bookstore and found out he has been a TA for the past year. NO ONE TELLS ME ANYTHING. Then I ran into Nick on the way to class after that.
- Tuesday, I watched Shaun White become Sad Shaun White. I was pretty upset all day to be honest, especially since I spoiled the results for myself by scrolling through Twitter. Watching him fall was heartbreaking. I blame the Russians and the damn slushy half pipe.
- All week I’ve been running around like a crazy woman, trying to find someone to cover my demo shift on Saturday at HV since my dad and step-mom are coming into town.
- Today I found out I’m getting checker trained next week and I’m so happy! It’s been a long time coming.
- I downloaded Flappy Bird before they took it off the app markets. I’m addicted. My high score right now is 47.
- I’ve been really into Bastille lately. This is one of my favorite songs from them right now, although I’m not sure about the music video. LOL. How surprised are you that I’m into a British band?
Anyway, like Cathy, this next week is getting pretty busy. Along with having 3 shifts this next week at HV, I have an art project to start preparing/working on, a speech to research and write, a paper to start writing and a test to start studying for. And my online pathophysiology class starts next week too. EEEEEK.
Happy early Single’s Awareness day! And Happy early President’s day!
Peace out, girl scouts.
Hey everyone, I can’t believe this summer is almost over already. 😦 😦 😦 It’s been awesome and I have my last two days at IHOP this weekend. Now it’s time to start thinking about the fact that… I’M STUDYING ABROAD IN LONDON THIS SEMESTER?!?! I’m so excited that Megan, Kendyl, and Derek have already bought tickets to come visit me over Thanksgiving break! You guys are the best 🙂
Well, today I made myself a blog for London because I realized that I kind of liked this whole blogging thing. I will still write on this one weekly, but I made another one so that I can write a lot about my experience in depth for my family and friends. I just thought I’d take a minute to make a shameless plug for the blog. I probably won’t write anything in the next couple weeks until I actually leave, but whatever. I’m proud of it 😉
Derek said we should try to blog every once in a while and I’m really bored right now so I’ll write a little something. I’m on my phone though so it will probably be brief.
All I’ve been doing for the past 3.5 weeks since I’ve been home is working at IHOP and hanging out with Kendyl, Megan, and Derek. IHOP is pretty fun and I’m working pretty much full time. I just wish people tipped better. But hanging out with my friends is a good way to relax and have crazy adventures like UFO hunting and night fishing. And lots of half-price shakes from sonic and quik trip drinks, of course.
It’s been an exciting week here at little old Drury. On Saturday, the basketball team played in the NCAA DII quarterfinals, and beat the defending champions 107-97 in Louisville. Drury took a bus full of Fanthers (fans+panthers) to support them and I watched them on CBS Sports at home with my family while I was there for Easter. I hadn’t gotten to go to any games this year because I worked pretty much every day they had a game, but I realized it’s pretty exciting to watch a winning team. Especially when one of the starters sits five feet away from you in your Principles of Advertising and Public Relations class.
Now they’ll be playing for the championship on Sunday in Atlanta. Students have the opportunity to go to the game again, for only $20! I decided not to go, because I have to work Monday night and I have a lot of stuff due next week, but then I started feeling cognitive dissonance about my decision, aka: I really wanted to go. I realized that I would probably regret it if I didn’t go, so I said #YOLO and decided I was going. They told us we could sign up at lunch, and they’d take 2 buses for sure which could take a total of 100 people, and they would get a third one if there was enough demand. Yesterday at the first available time, a friend and I tried to go to sign up in between Spanish classes.
What nobody was expecting was that the line would look like this.
After 40 minutes in a line that wasn’t moving, my friend and I decided to go to the class we were supposed to be in so we could at least try to get 50% of the participation points. I gave my money to some friends who were further ahead in line and asked if they would sign me up. Later one of them texted me and said that we were on bus #3. They said that bus #3 isn’t guaranteed because they were not anticipating this many people wanting to go, but they are pretty sure they can get it. Apparently by the end of yesterday, there were over 200 students signed up, enough for more than 4 buses. Wow.
Did I mention that our president canceled classes for Monday in order to encourage more Fanthers to attend the game? (The professors are pissed.)
This week I’m feeling blessed to go to such a spirited, supportive, and close-knit school.
P.S. Here’s a video I found one time about the evils of Google translate. As a language student I find it especially funny because I have to admit that Google translate is still my friend (sometimes when I need to get the general idea of what I’m reading, not when I’m writing something. I promise.) I sent this video to my Spanish teacher and she said she’s going to show it to her 101 and 102 classes.
One more dawn, one more day until I’m free for a whole week! Yep. Spring break is pretty much here. Actually it has kind of sort of been here all week. I’ve had the hardest time staying focused on anything academic. I’m pretty sure I took a nap every day this week, except for today since I was on campus until 6:30. And I’ve been doing laundry/packing/watching Scrubs since I got back. I hate Thursdays.
Anyway, long story short, we’re not going to Colorado. Although I was/am quite disappointed (I was really starting to miss those mountains), it’s probably for the best that I won’t be spending 20 hours on the road. Truth be told, I really need to study for the 3 tests I have the week after break. But Kendyl and I are planning on taking a short road trip one day this week, so that should relieve our road-trip craving.
Today in microbiology we were talking about allergies/hypersensitivities. This was a meme that was featured in the presentation. If only I could actually pet cats… Ai ya. 😦
Also tomorrow, Les Mis is coming out on DVD!!!!! I think that’s enough said.
So the three of us who are still here and didn’t get abandoned by people taking fancy trips to Arizona and Finland (and people who are staying at Copper Mountain in Colorado) got together.

I think we should switch up the layout of this blog to make it look fresh and ZESTY.
I call Wednesdays for blogging again.
That’s all, at least for the semester. Since we all live in the same city and spend half of our waking hours together there is no time (or need) for blogging about our lives.
But we shall return.
Sorry, I’m working on my paper now and don’t have time, but I know you all are anxiously waiting to hear about my life, so it will be up Soon.
P.S. Listen to Of Monsters and Men’s new album My Head is an Animal it is off the chain. I’m not kidding it is really good.
