Let’s Roll

11 Feb

Things to accomplish this week:

  • Find a house
  • Send out my Valentines
  • Call my parents (haven’t talked to them in awhile land I need more help in house hunting- its scary)
  • Write my “This I Believe” essay (Do you all remember doing this in Thompson’s class?)
  • Finish hanging all my photos and postcards
  • homework
  • Study with (cute) boy for a Meteorology test on Thursday
  • Analyze two post-modern picture books
  • Find a math tutor
  • Meet with my English professor

Yeah, so, let’s not forget I still need to go to class and do everyday homework and go to Bible Study and prep and execute a Valentine’s Day party and hopefully go to the gym to release some stress. Let the week begin! ….well right after I catch up on Glee and The Bachelor… I know, I’ve got my priorities straight!

So, if you all see me on facebook or pinterest or twitter or whatever, yell at me to get back to my list! I’m going to need help staying focused this week.

p.s. I wish I would have written my This I Believe essay in high school…. because then I wouldn’t have to work so hard on it now. I am having so much trouble finding the one thing I believe in and writing about it, plus I am super scared to go into class and have my peers edit it- especially because most of them won’t agree with what I have written so far! -Tangent- One kid wrote about how they believe that going to college and following society’s view of how the world works is stupid and that no one should be an art major- um hello! You are in college right now! Sorry to burst your bubble.

p.p.s I hope you all have a fun Valentine’s Day, but more importantly, that your Ash Wednesday is even better!

Accomplishments and Shit

19 Sep

So this week hasn’t been too bad. Actually it’s been pretty good, other than two shitty occurrences.

Last Wednesday after I posted my blog, I went to the animal shelter which was pretty fun. I walked dogs for about an hour and none of them even pooped! And that, my friends, is accomplishment #1 for the week. Then I played with a cat for one hour. Thursdays suck and I don’t remember anything about it so let’s pretend it doesn’t exist. Friday I got my Spanish test back, 99% bitchesss (accomplishment #2). I like this class because it doesn’t ask me about language tenses and translations but basically it’s like a literature class where the literature just so happens to be in Spanish, and we just so happen to do the analysis in Spanish. Just don’t tell anyone that I use google translate on most of the reading homework… unfortunately I don’t have 934 hours to spend on it every night.

Friday at 4:45pm was our first “Summit Leadership” class. It’s for all the people who are living in these apartments and doing service projects. It’s once a month from 4:45-7. They always bring us catered dinner for the first 30 minutes, accomplishment #3. We had to build balloon sculptures. Then I had to go help at DVD Bingo which is something that Residence Life Association does, which I am allegedly a member of but I skipped their meeting yesterday (#4). Shitty occurrence #1 is the fact that I didn’t win a single damn DVD at said DVD Bingo. I get my hopes up again and again always to be disappointed.

Saturday I slept in hella late (#5). It rained and I didn’t do anything which was awesome. Then Caitlin and I went grocery shopping and we got ingredients to make S’more Bars (#6). We just now finished eating them yesterday. It was pretty fun because it was the first thing we baked together in the kitchen. I don’t remember anything about Sunday except that I ate many s’more bars. And I made an art project to hang on my wall, out of canvas, paint, and buttons (#7). I think it turned out pretty well.

Monday was supposed to be the day that I heard back from the community center which is where I interviewed, so my mom told me I should call and follow up. The woman said they were finishing calling people Monday evening/Tuesday morning. I took a very long nap and patiently waited but didn’t hear anything. But I did make tacos for dinner, which I consider to be my first “real” meal that I have cooked in this kitchen (#8). (P.S. Monday night I couldn’t sleep, shitty occurrence numero dos)

By Tuesday at 3:30 I still hadn’t heard anything so I decided to call again. The woman said they still hadn’t called everyone but she said she could tell me then that THEY WANT TO HIRE ME!!!(#9!!!!!!) Gosh I can’t believe it! After a whole semester last year searching, and a month this year searching, I finally found something to pay the (theoretical) bills but also to finance my sophisticated lifestyle of buying a lot of Special K cereal and international plane tickets.

So today I went back to the animal shelter to volunteer until 2:30, which was fun because they had new puppies! They were so adorable and well behaved! And after that, I went to fill out a form at the family center that gives them permission to do a background check. And then… I had to go take a drug test at a clinic here in town. That was sups awkward because a male nurse was filling out my paperwork and I had to give him the cup at the end. But I would like to announce that I filled it above the required 60 mL line, but just barely. That’s definitely an accomplishment (#10). And I actually got it all in the cup which I will admit I was worried about (#11). Also, I noticed when I was standing there awkwardly that there was a cabinet that said “Shy Bladder Paperwork”.

One last thing I’d like to add, I’ve been watching a lot of “Breaking Amish” and “Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders: Making the Team”. That’s an accomplishment too (#12). I love having a TV.

I hope your accomplishments are outweighing your shitty occurrences this week too!

Miss you guys

Cathy
