2 May

Hello everyone. To those of us who are still in school… ONE MORE WEEK! We can do it… most likely.

Nothing going on. Over the weekend I went home because Becky had prom, and Caitlin came too. I can’t even count the number of THIS dead animal that we saw as roadkill… wtf? I have NEVER seen those before while journeying from Springfield to Independence and back.

The weekend was fun. Friday night we drove around and I showed Caitlin places of interest, Saturday we hung out at home and I went to the dentist (nothing wrong with my teeth). Then Becky came home from getting her hair done, and all her asshole douchebag shithead pieces of shit “friends” decided they were going to take pictures and go to the restaurant 45 minutes early without her, and she wasn’t ready yet, also they decided not to pick her up. I wanted to go to that restaurant and give those little bitches a piece of my mind… like seriously? Do they not have any concern for anyone but themselves? Well anyway, Becky looked awesome and my mom took her to the restaurant and my mom was pretty pissed at those kids too.

Then Carrie had her friend Maureen spend the night, and around 8:00 the 4 of us decided to walk to Yogurtini because me and Caitlin are suckers for fro-yo in Springfield and Caitlin was impressed with Yogurtini. Then my mom picked us up, and dropped Carrie and Maureen off at home, and took Caitlin and I to the movies with her and the 3 of us saw The Lucky One with Zac Efron. We love him.

Went home, went to bed, went to church, and watched High School Musical 3 the next day. We had to leave around 2:30 because Caitlin had a sorority meeting at 6 back at school.

Good news – I got a 97/100 on my mustache video and I finished that class with an A!

So, you may be asking yourself, what does the next week bring for me? So, I would answer you, a shit ton of stuff. Oral Spanish interview in the morning, working in the Alumni office later on to help with pre-graduation stuff, and Potter’s House with the Authentic Ministries crew tonight. A barbecue at the Drury Ambassador advisor’s house on Thursday, and another barbecue with Authentic on Sunday. A computer science program due Friday that I haven’t started yet, and two labs that were started in March but were never finished (with good reason). Cleaning the bathroom Saturday. Mounting my photographs on boards (and first buying said boards). FINALS (one on Tuesday, + a paper being due, and one on Wednesday). I’m going home WEDNESDAY! Packing. Gotta do that Monday, I suppose. My mom is coming around 3 on Wednesday and I have to check out by 4:30. So this should be fun.

I’m just really excited! I survived the first year……… almost.

P.S.The reason I am posting this at 12:30am is because I think tomorrow I will be too busy to post during real hours.
P.P.S. I couldn’t think of a title then I went to facebook and someone posted brotip #1865 as their status and I found it extremely appropriate.

I forgot about my idol : bad decision

14 Mar

Hey guys, I’m alive but just barely. With a last-minute photography assignment, an edited video, a rough draft of an 8-page paper, a test, an oral presentation in Spanish, and computer science program all due at various points during the week, I’m sure you can understand why this is suprising.

The issue is, that I forgot until yesterday about the honey badger. That was a terrible decision. Yesterday I was in the computer lab working on the computer science program in the company of Rosalia (of course), a senior Indian boy, and a math grad student, and we were all talking about how crappy the week was. Then I suddenly remembered, “Honey badger don’t give a shit!” and I exclaimed it aloud, causing the grad student to laugh quite hysterically, and me to be happy because I remembered that guess what, I don’t need these grades to get into college because I’m already here. So I should quit being so uptight and be more like the honey badger.

Last week I cleaned my room a lot, knowing that Kelsey and Morgan would be here. Rachel cleaned too. I really like how the room was looking, and we maintained that cleanliness for about four days. But considering how hellish the week has been, dirty dishes are once again sitting on the sink begging to be washed out and empty boxes of food are sitting on my desk, aka the way things should be.

In case any of you have been closely following my complaints regarding Moritz’s current college situation, I have news for the latest installment. In early February, he sent all of his required documents, and a package to me, from a post office in his village. This post office just opened during January. Last week he went to ask why none of these items had arrived. The post office told him that all their international mail from the first two months had accidentally been sent to Northern Germany, where the people there didn’t know what to do with it, and did not feel responsible for sending it. Last week they realized their error, and it was all sent back on Monday so Moritz had to go in and claim everything, and resend it again. What a pain in the ass. Thankfully, they let him express-mail everything for free. Well I think those idiots owed it to him.

In less than two weeks, all of his tests will be over and I will have my boyfriend back! (Well as much as I can have him back while he’s 5,000 miles away.)

The light in our bathroom (automatic) is broken, and apparently it’s not the lightbulb but the sensor that causes it to go on. I’ve been showering in the dark and incidentally cutting my legs when I shave them. Yesterday I actually showered with the bathroom door wide open and hoped Rachel wasn’t going to come in anytime soon.

Also, today in alpha we had this freaking dumb presentation about racism. All of us were being as non-cooperative as possible so that was quite pleasing. I like to cause clash. I’m a free spirit. I do what I want.

I only have to make it two more days, and I will be home free! And I better be free because I’ve been working my ass off to get all this crap done so my professors don’t have anything to hold over me while I am in glorious bliss sleeping in my bed errday until 11:00.

I apologize if the overall tone of this post was bitter, but that’s how I am right now and I’m a very expressive person so that is probably why it came through in my writing.

Pissy

1 Feb

As I walked to my last class of the day earlier, I was thinking how nice the weather has been, how happy I am at school, and how fast time seems to be going. I was generally feeling pretty good about life.
But you know how I’m feeling now?

PISSY.

Here are a few reasons why:

1. Moritz has these really huge tests in March that they have to take in order to graduate so he’s spending a lot of time studying and not a lot of time talking to me. I understand but yesterday we talked for a grand total of….. *drum roll please*…. one hour. And today’s not looking so promising either.

2. Also, I can’t effing get a job to save my life. I even call all these places back to follow up but nope. Apparently they’re rather hire people who are incompetent and unattractive.

3. Additionally, I made this timer for my computer that counted down the days until I left for Germany. After I got back, it still alerted me every day at the time I was supposed to leave. At first it was cute but now it’s annoying and I don’t know how to make it stop, no matter if I press “Snooze” or “OK” which are my only options, and I can’t find the answer anywhere on the internet and it’s REALLY pissing me off. *

4. Finally, I just tried to distract myself from homework by reading some tabloids and blogs about the Bachelor. That is also REALLY pissing me off because I hate that bitch Courtney and I heard she wins in the end and she’s a nasty skanky whore bitchtit (I got the bitchtit part from my friend Kayla, she says it often and I felt it appropriate given the circumstances).*

*Also, these aren’t really big deals but when you add them to factors 1 & 2 (mostly 1) the magnitude of the whole situation is just enhanced by a large and arbitrary scale factor.

Now I shall objectively state some occurrences that have happened since last Wednesday.

• Playing my saxophone at basketball, and the “Fanthers” having special guests THE SWIM TEAM
• Suitemate & company vomiting in our bathroom at 1:30 am on a school night
• One value-size box of Special K being consumed in less than 24 hours
• Having a debate with my Spanish teacher and him being an idioto
• Playing tennis in the un-air conditioned gym, then my first German lesson from Kayla
• Robbery on campus
• Orange Leaf fro-yo and watching the Help until 2:00am
• Me developing my Germany pictures in the photo lab and then realizing I developed a roll of film which had no pictures on it
• Eating peanut butter out of the jar with a spoon
• Mastering 5 out of 83 learning objectives on my computer science online homework
THIS song just came up on my Adele Pandora station
• My mom playing the word “sext” in Words With Friends

Highly Suspicious Activity

18 Jan

Hey guys. Happy Hump Day. I always hated when other people say it but I find it acceptable when I say it but only because my sole purpose is to annoy other people who hate it.

Christmas break was nice, the first week at home lasted 1000000 years but it was okay, the 10 days in Germany lasted about 5 seconds, and the last week at home lasted about one week so it was nice to see time making sense for once.

I got back on Monday around 6:00 pm. I brought in all my stuff and noticed that we have a new suitemate. First, I was expecting two; second, I was expecting them to be international students; and third, I was expecting them to be new students at Drury. According to the door, the girl (in the singular form)’s name was Hannah, which seems to be a pretty American name. She held the door open for me, which I would expect that any decent human being would do. My roommate (Rachel) and I were surprised to hear a male’s voice in the room later that evening, and Rachel came in from the bathroom to announce that the toilet seat was up. So it’s looking likely that the girl isn’t new, and possibly just got kicked out of her old room by her old roommate. I hope she won’t use the empty room to her advantage and just have sex all the time.

Yesterday I had class at 8am. WTF.

It’s at the farthest building on campus. WTF.

It was 70 degrees Monday and 30 yesterday. WTF.

Anyway, I made it there. The class was photography by the way. It sucked getting ready in the dark and everything because Rachel doesn’t have class until 9:30. When I got to class, there was one girl I kind of knew because she’s friends with Alexis. I’m the only person who has any experience. The class is supposed to be 3 hours on Tuesday and Thursday but today it only lasted 30 minutes. The cool thing is that in the future we are able to get into the building and the photo lab at any time, 24/7 as long as we have an electronic pass.

After that I had computer science lab which wasn’t that fun but at least it was the same class as last semester so it was okay and my old math teacher brought us little delicious apple tarts randomly.

Then I had Multimedia Production. The teacher is a large black man. I also knew one person in there, not counting the President’s daughter who lives across the hall and has wild parties on school nights. I guess that class will be like broadcasting which will be fun.

Decided to leave the Christmas lights up. Rachel bought some too.

I have done some online job applications: Marshall’s, Panera, Francesca’s Closet, Krispy Kreme, Peach Wave, Perkins, Applebee’s, TGI Fridays, Olive Garden, and the Springfield Library. The Library is the only one that got back to me and said they got my application. I think some of the other places weren’t actually hiring though. I really want the library job though, seems like it would be pretty low stress. Any job that I can have that doesn’t depend on me ringing up peoples’ Christmas turkeys and cat food, would be an upgrade in my opinion.

Also, today I had 3 classes but they’re ones I already had last semester so NBD. My biggest class has about 18 people (that’s my freshman advisement class), Photography has 12, Multimedia has 12, Computer Science has 10 and Spanish has 8. Me gusta that.

Today my advisement teacher informed me and Caitlin that our professor from last semester got placed on medical leave for this semester. I feel a little guilty but she told us not to and that he really needed to get some mental help, fast.

When I came back after my last class, just a while ago, I realized that my bed has been moved. I don’t know why. I texted Rachel and she hasn’t replied. I still don’t know why my bed was moved. There’s nothing over here. I immediately suspected the new suitemate. I went to the bathroom door to see if the handle was locked to keep her out but then I realized that Rachel and I have been locked out of the bathroom from the inside. So I had to go use the public toilet. Also, I looked under my bed because I was afraid for some reason that someone would be hiding under it.

I’ll keep you updated on this thrilling development.

Update 1:54pm

Rachel says she came back to the room before me and my bed was like that. Needless to say now I am really freaked the effff out.

Update 8:56pm

I asked my RA about it and she said that maintenance replaced the heating filters (???) and were so courteous as to not move my bed back. Phew. I can sleep tonight.
