This weekend is gonna be awesome

5 Feb

Not much too exciting has been going on this week. I wish I had gotten two snow days like Mizzou and every other school in the state yesterday so I could have had schwartzed Monday and Tuesday. Anyway, I went to school in the middle of the blizzard and even skipped lunch so I could just stay in the Comm building during the 1-hour gap between my classes and not go outside.

I’ve been pretty preoccupied lately with trying to find an internship for the summer. Preferably paid. I want to work almost full time and make monies too. I have to interview and write a profile of a Comm Department grad that works at a company in KC as a social media analyst, which I think would be pretty cool to do. I think they have some internships too, so I’m going to stop there and do my interview in person before I come home on Friday afternoon! I got the LinkedIn app last night which I’m pretty sure makes me officially an old lame person but I just really really want some experience somewhere. Hanna and I unwisely stayed up entirely way too late the other night searching for internships.

The only other thing I’ve been doing is trying to keep up on homework. I have a lot of ideas flowing for my website for Web Comm and I spent about 6 hours this weekend in the Mac lab on photoshop, drawing a header image of Tower Bridge. My assignment for Friday is to write a sample post for my blog, so I did that! I bought the domain name and my blog is going to be changing a lot over the next few weeks as I learn how to design it how I want, but if you ever want to read it, here’s the link. http://www.madaboutlondonguide.com. Super basic right now! Also I need to do some reading for Spanish (when it’s an independent study, you can’t get away with not doing the reading). Usually it’s out of our textbook which is in Spanish so it takes about 30-45 minutes to read… he told me the one for tomorrow would be in English, so that made me excited, but I just pulled it up and it’s 36 pages. Yeah.

GETTING SO SO EXCITED FOR THIS WEEKEND. WOMBIES + DEREK TAKE KC AWW YEAH. 12 hour saga here we come. Gonna try to motivate myself to do some extra homework tonight so maybe I can go shopping tomorrow weeeeeeee

Bye London

16 Dec

It’s been a couple of weeks since I last blogged but I figured I would anyway even though it’s not my day. Sorry (Derek)?

Well of course I’m not in London anymore. But last week was pretty great because, since it was my last week, I had a lot of free time to do a few things I still wanted to do. Also, Thursday night was completely insane, because it was the last night everyone had together. We went to O’Neil’s, of course (which I hate and you guys know that) but it was okay because I was pretty uh intoxicated and so was everyone else. Like way over the top. I remember singing “Thrift Shop” at the top of my lungs with Carson as we walked to O’Neil’s from Piccadilly Circus. I’m actually kind of surprised we got in because apparently one of our other friends, they kept telling her to go to McDonald’s and then come back. Which she did, five times, and they still wouldn’t let her in. She later said “It was like everyone was drunk for the first time, that’s how bad it was” which I thought was a very good way to put it.

We all paid for it with killer hangovers at British High Tea the next day. Oops. That’s classic, huh? Memories. That’s how I see it 😉

Then of course Saturday was my 21st birthday! I can’t believe I’m 21, though of course it doesn’t feel too different yet but I’m super excited! I had a great birthday away from home, even though it involved a lot of crying. But it also involved wonderful friends, Big Ben, and chocolate cake. And one drink 🙂

It was super hard to leave London. I’m already missing all my friends soooo much. I can’t believe it’s over and things will never be how they were again. I’m torn between being happy for everyone that they’re back home, but mostly I’m wishing we were all still together in London and the fun could continue.

But on the bright side, I’m in Germany! Having a great time so far. (Do I really have to go home in a week??) Moritz and I went out for dinner last night, my birthday dinner he said, and I had my favorite German food- schnitzel at our favorite German restaurant in Heidelberg. Then I came back to his apartment and he wrapped his scarf around my head while he set up a surprise, which were sooooo many candles and a tiramisu cake and lots of hearts all over the place ❤ and then we watched the Chiefs beat the Raiders 56-31 and ate the tiramisu. Today we hung out in Heidelberg and then went to the grocery store, and then cooked dinner 🙂 And now he’s working on a project so that’s why I decided to blog.

This is probably my last blog from Europe, right 😦 Well anyway, I miss you guys!

A New Year

22 Aug

Hey everyone! I guess I will be the first to blog for this new school year!

I really can’t believe how fast summer went by. It was for sure a memorable one that included my 21st birthday, lots of ½ price shakes at Sonic, and lots of working at the Yak-co-mo Marina.

Summer technically ended last Saturday. That was the day Kendyl and I moved into our new apartment which is super nice. I don’t have pictures yet because our place is still a work in process. Anyway after we settled in we had a few hours to rest before free The Neighbourhood concert, which Derek came down to visit for. They weren’t the best band I’ve seen live, but still I saw them live. Also that night, Dan from 69 knocked on our door to introduce himself. It was a bit querd, but it was nice… LAWLS.

Classes started on Monday and waking up for my 8am class was rough, even though I had already been doing it all summer for work. I think it was because I knew that I had to sit in class. Currently I’m enrolled in Human Phys, Stats, Masterpieces of Western Music and Professional Nursing. I probably can already tell you that my favorite class is going to be the music appreciation class because it’s pretty easy and it’s a topic that I enjoy. It also should be noted that there are soooooooo many Asians in my music appreciation class. And I can already tell you that I’m going to hate Stats because well, I hate math, and also because of that stupid math class I had to take during the summer. I HATE MATH SO MUCH.

Tuesday I had an interview at the local Hy-Vee. I got a call back today and well… I’m going to be a helpful smile in every isle, starting as a courtesy clerk and hopefully moving up to cashier. Weeeeeeeeeeeeee!!

Nursing applications are due in about 1 ½ weeks and I’m getting so so so so nervous. Prayers, good luck wishes, good vibes, or all of the above would be appreciated. I am trying to keep a positive mind for this obstacle in my life, but sometimes I just don’t know, you know? To be completely honest, I’m not even for sure what the next year is going to look like. Wahhhhhh.

Also this weekend (and probably for the next lots of weekends), Kendyl and I will be heading back to work at Lake Yak-co-mo, since they are short staffed. That’s a good thing though because I left a lot of things at home. Typical.
