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!

Zac Efron > everything

22 Feb

(Let me preface by saying that the correct title of this post is “Zac Efron > everything” but thanks to this weird ass font, this was not achieved.)

Hello everyone. Once again, it seems that I have survived the week all the way until Wednesday.

Not too much has been going on with me. Last weekend I went home, so that was pretty nice. You know how today is the beginning of Lent? And yesterday was “Fat Tuesday”… well let’s just say my family and I celebrated Fat Tuesday all weekend. And it was good. So good. Doritos, ice cream, Chinese buffet, chocolate Chex Mix, gummy bears, popcorn, cereal (and other deliciousness) were at my disposal, and I’ll also say that I consumed them in a way similar to a garbage disposal. But me and my mom decided to start Weight Watchers for Lent so we can go shopping for skinny clothes later on in the spring.

On Friday my mom got me an eye appointment to find out what was wrong and why I was having pain in my eye. The eye doctor flipped my eyelids inside out and said the problem was that I am having a severe allergic reaction to an unknown factor. Hmm, severe allergic reactions to unknown factors seem to be something I am very good at. Anyway, he said my eyelids were supposed to be smooth inside but instead they were bumpy because all the lymph nodes are swollen and that’s making them feel like sandpaper on my eyes. He made a video of my eyes somehow and I watched it and it was kind of gross. But he gave me some eye drops that really burn and I have to take them 4x a day for 45 days.

For my video class, I had another project that was due tomorrow, so I got Steven and asked him if he would help me by being a hipster again. He did not let the fact that we haven’t seen each other since graduation inhibit him. I edited it on Sunday when I got back to school and the only thing that sucks is that the wind is kind of loud for some of it, but it’s mostly alright. Then yesterday my teacher said the project wasn’t due until next Tuesday so oh well I guess.

Moritz and I are still trucking away at this whole college in America thing. He emailed Straub and asked him if he had any advice about getting recruited by a college to play soccer, and whether he thought he had a good chance of being able to play or not. Straub said yes and he even volunteered to contact the schools for him. It REALLY BLOWS because this week Moritz is at this tennis coaching seminar in Stuttgart, and he thought he would come home every day at the end (it’s about 30 min away) but when he showed up on the first day he found out he could just stay there the whole week. So he doesn’t have anything with him, like his homework or laptop or anything, and he only has 2 shirts. He said he’ll get by but I couldn’t do it. Gender differences I suppose. But anyway now he can’t work on any of his stuff he needs to finish. Yesterday I emailed all the schools he’s applying to, to ask them what materials they have received from him so far, and the ones we’ve heard back from haven’t received his TOEFL (Test Of English as a Foreign Language), which he took in December and should have sent like the ACT, automatically. And one didn’t receive his SAT which was also taken in December. Shit. So he can’t check his accounts until Friday. And they haven’t gotten his transcripts which his school secretary allegedly mailed about 2 weeks ago, and his dad mailed the bank statements about one week ago. So now I’m worried these are lost in the mail and they will never get there and apocalypse.

Sorry for rambling about that but I just have so many thoughts and it’s nice to have somewhere to say them.

Final order of business, I can’t believe that bitch Ben from the Bachelor got rid of Kacie B. As my mom said over the weekend, “He’s just a big stupid. He can never compare to how hot Zac Efron is. Never.”
