That Colorado Life

23 Sep

So, as you may know, Colorado has been hit hard for the last week by the floods! I can’t believe it! It’s so crazy how much rain came down last week and how much damage it caused. One of the best roads (highway 34) was completely demolished going up to Estes Park (one of the best places in this state). This means no roommate camping trip this fall ūüė¶ Luckily, I guess, my school wasn’t damaged by the floods. We did have a flood day! School was cancelled because so many people couldn’t leave their houses to get to Greeley. How crazy is that?!

In other news, I am almost finished decorating my room! Ugh- it’s been 4 weeks and my picture frames are still on my floor. It is so hard to decorate a room knowing you will be living in it for 2 years. I might be discovering that I have commitment issues just a wee bit.

In school news, I hate Physics. I can’t understand my asian professor. She is so excited about Physics that her words get all jumbled when they come out of her mouth. When she was trying to explain The Law of Universal Gravitation and how to simplify the problem her exact words were “The sixes cancel out the other six and all the sixes are gone. No other numbers are left. So this equals approximately 10. You with me?” Uh no. No. What? NO. BUT I have a tutor! Well, he’s an unofficial tutor/friend of a friend. Fun story, I texted him on a Tuesday night to see if we could study on Thursday. After successfully communicating that the library would be our meeting place, the time we would , and topics we would need to cover I received this message, “Sounds great! See you then :$” I was a bit confused by the smiley face, but got over it knowing ¬†the dolla sign and bracket are right next to each other. But then, I received another message, “Oh sorry, I’m hammered right now :)*” Um, it’s Tuesday night sir, why are you hammered on a Tuesday?! Also, why are you telling me this? I don’t want to know that much about your life right now. I have no clue what kind of “relationship” we are supposed to have. Is this a teacher-student type thing, or are we going to be friends, or are we pretending to not know each other after this semester of tutoring? I have no clue. But I don’t think he does either. It’s a weird thing that I don’t understand just yet. Also he get’s hammered on Tuesdays, not the best choice in tutors Morg…

Also, I apologize for this irrelevant post. I am not loving writing right now so even writing this blog feels like schEWl.

Miss you guys, also I’m a little bitter that you are in/going to London for Thanksgiving. I am so poor I am barely making it back to KC for the holiday. blah.

Ciao

P.S. I still haven’t switched to iOs7 I just can’t change it yet….

P.S.S. I ride my bike to school sometimes, the last time I did I was complemented on how cute my basket is. I felt so cool.

March Madness

1 Apr

This March they were not joking with the madness. On one of my brackets I literally have zero teams left to play. Zero. And the sad thing is, that’s not my lowest scoring bracket. My other bracket had Duke making it to the Elite Eight but also had Wichita State, Florida (?why?), and UCLA losing in their first round games. I have the lowest scoring brackets out of my ENTIRE family, that’s even including my foreign exchange brother from Spain who picked Mizzou¬†Miz-poo to win the whole tournament. Ugh. I have been scowling since Duke lost earlier today. My face might just get stuck. And all this madness just reminds me that Kentucky is not even in the tournament this year! I mean come on UK! You won last year!
I’m actually very¬†surprised¬†that I haven’t gone more crazy over this month. I can recall now 2009, when the Tar Heels won it all and I picked them to win simply because I liked their cute blue uniforms. Man I was floating on cloud nine and rubbing it in everyone’s faces because I picked the winner and I picked them just because of their uniforms. When they say ignorance is bliss, I really believe it when in the context of March Madness.

Anyway, I guess I’ll be rooting for¬†Louisville come Saturday.

I didn’t even get to watch the Louisville vs. Duke game today and apparently I missed watching a leg get broken on national television. Thank goodness, because I would have¬†probably¬†vomited. But, I am totally loving Kevin Ware’s attitude about it. So… GO CARDS!

I hope you all had a Happy Easter /¬†Resurrection¬†Day despite the chaos of the month and remembered the reason for the holiday but also got an Easter basket even though we are all 20. (Tori’s mom made me an Easter basket this year, I’m so lucky that my friend’s mom still makes me an Easter basket because my mom stopped when I was¬†like¬†14 and I’m pretty sure I cried)
