Wednesday thief

2 Oct

I just blog when I feel like it.

Well I missed out on blogging on Friday because Moritz was here, and let’s face it, I was too busy having fun with him in London to write a blog post. And let’s also face it, Tristan isn’t going to blog because he’s promised us he would for like the past 5 weeks and he never has, so why should we believe he’s going to today?

Of course the weekend was really wonderful. You can read about it in more detail at my other blog if you want. Here’s still a few pictures though.

Saturday night we were going to go out to a club, but we started drinking rum in my room so we never ended up going. We played a reaction game on his phone, so that was really funny. Also I tried to jump on my bed and fell on the floor. I have a few bruises to show for that. Haha. Also, it was really weird sharing a tiny bed in a room with two other roommates. It was actually kind of weirder because Hanna was gone for 3 nights so then it was just us two and Megan.

We had to get up at 3:15am on Monday morning so he could get to the airport on time. I got home at 5:30 and skipped my classes and slept until noon. You see some pretty interesting things on the night bus is all I can say.

Monday I pretty much laid in bed for 5 hours until I went to Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre to see A Midsummer Night’s Dream with my theatre class. We had standing tickets, which was okay because we were super close to the stage. It was a good play because I’ve seen this one before, plus we read it in eighth grade, so I knew what was going on. It was a little long though and it was like 11:15pm by the time we got home.

Yesterday I was a little homesick for the first time really since I’ve been here. I think I was just feeling lonely since Moritz had left and it was back to school and stuff like that. This study abroad thing can be hard. It’s a dream but it also can be challenging. But I got over it pretty soon. Last night I also went to the student bar for the first time and had my favorite drink, Bacardi and pineapple juice. And then I went to the vending machine twice, and skyped with my family later.

This weekend half of my friends are going to Edinburgh, Scotland on a school trip and half are going to Dublin. I’m not going to either because I want to save money and I’m going to Dublin in 2 and a half weeks anyway. I hope I don’t get lonely but it might be nice to have a few days to myself to go out and do some photography and shopping.

Here’s some really good news for me: Carrie’s friend’s dad is coming to London over the weekend, and my mom told me that he will bring me some stuff from home that I want. For example, some t-shirts, yoga pants, and leggings. All things that for some reason I didn’t pack when I came here?? Also my black flats, which I can’t remember if we threw away before I came but I really hope not because I always need black flats and can’t find any here that I can justify spending that much money on.

I guess that’s all. I’m not feeling very good today so I was hoping this would distract me, but I have to go write a paper.

P.S. The government’s shut down and I’m a little jealous that I’m not home for that

No loyalty

21 Mar

Hey everybody, guess what? Spring break. That’s what I have right now.

It was much needed.

I made it through Thursday and Friday last week, and headed home around 11:15 am on Friday, getting home at about 2:15. On Friday night we went to a fish fry at St. Ann’s because we hadn’t gone to one in about 4 years so we went.

Saturday I slept until 11:30 which was glorious and then had St. Patrick’s Day lunch of corned beef and cabbage. Then my family went to the parade on the square which wasn’t really worth it because it only lasted 15 minutes but it was too nice outside to not go. We went to church at 5 on Saturday and then had dinner, and watched Super 8 on demand.

Sunday I slept some more. My dad had to go to work all day so my mom asked us if we wanted to go to the zoo. The last time we went to the zoo was during the summer of 2010 with Moritz and it cost the 5 of us like $75, but this time they had some thing where if you live in Jackson county it’s only like $5 each so it was only $20. We saw the polar bear, he was so cool. I have a photography assignment over landscapes to shoot over break but mostly I just took pictures of animals, sue me.

You can probably guess this but I slept until 10:45 on Monday. I apologize for highlighting what time I woke up every day but it’s just such an important thing that I can’t leave it out. I went to Hy-Vee and…. asked if I can have my job back for the summer. They said of course. I don’t really want to be a cashier again but I can do it for 2 months and I need the money, especially if I ever plan to pay my parents back for a certain $800 plane ticket… Then I went to the square and applied at Clinton’s and UpDog because if I could get another job that would be flipping sweet. I figured those might be places that would possibly be hiring for the summer since it gets kind of touristy over here. I wanted to apply at Yogurtini too but they said it was online. Moritz is coming on July 6 and I’m gonna need something to pass the time from May 9 when I get out of school until then.

Yesterday I seriously didn’t do anything. I woke up during the hour of 9:00 (wtf) and I watched tv shows on demand. Mostly it was Dance Moms. I have a strange addiction to that show, which is weird because I’ve never danced a day in my life. But that dance teacher is so dramatic. She kind of reminds me of Ms. Thompson but Ms. Thompson is much nicer. Also I watched Four Weddings. But the weather is so crappy that there’s nothing else to do. Kelvin asked if he could come get his movie while I’m home (he left a movie called Fantastic Mr. Fox in Springfield when he came to visit Graham. I never want to watch that movie, it looks effing creepy. But I brought it home with me during October in case he needed to get it from my family anytime. Well now I don’t know where it is and he wants it back so I kept telling him “come tomorrow” every day and “tomorrow” suddenly turned into yesterday.)

Today I went to Kohl’s and Marshall’s with my mom to buy some sandals. Then we went to Cherry Berry because it’s right there on 39th St. Cherry Berry is just like Yogurtini, Yogurtopia, Peach Wave, Orange Leaf, etc… only with a different color scheme (red and green). So apparently I have no loyalty to these places because I just get yogurt wherever it’s convenient. One thing I will say about Cherry Berry is that their yogurt did not melt one single bit during the time I was eating it.

Guess which one's mine?


Moritz had 3 of his 4 big tests this week, and his last one is on Monday! YAY!!!!

In other news, my mom told me she had a message on the answering machine that there were shots fired in Chrisman’s parking lot last night. Classy Chrisman. Why are you so classy?

There’s a Hash Tag for That

8 Feb

Hey good news everybody, I’m having a way better Wednesday than I did last week. Not a whole lot has been going on; Friday night/Saturday my mom and Becky came to visit after a college visit to Rolla. We ate Chinese food for dinner, went to my favorite coffee house for Oreo Quicksands, shopped at Charming Charlies, looked for a prom dress for Becky, ate at an Italian restaurant, and went to The Cup. I may just be 10 pounds heavier now but I’m gonna go out on a limb and say it was worth it.

My friend Kayla and I have been going to the fitness center pretty much every weeknight (unless something else is going on). This makes the fourth week. On Tuesday (Valentine’s Day), since both of our boyfriends aren’t really in the same country as us, we are going to have a woman date. Kayla doesn’t get out of class until 5:45 on Tuesdays so we will probably go out to eat after that and then go see “The Vow” at the movies, probably at like 11 or something if they still have showings then. We’re also going to buy Valentine’s themed chocolate, etc at the grocery store to make up for the stuff we won’t be getting. It really sucks that Moritz has so much studying to do because we really won’t be talking much for about 6 weeks, but Kayla is the one in her relationship that is so busy with school, that she doesn’t even talk to (Tobi) for like 3 or 4 days at a time, at all. We always talk at least a little bit. I think I’m handling it well… for now.

Remember how I applied for some jobs or something? Sunday (two weeks after applying), Best Buy called me. I applied for Sales Associate, but it was the Geek Squad! He wanted to ask me about my experience with computers. I conveniently forgot to tell him that I got a 39% on a computer science test last semester. Well, I tried to make myself sound good but I’m not sure how convincing I was. At the end though he asked me to clarify my availability and I feel like they must have been desperate if they pulled my application from another department, so I’m still hopeful.

The last noteworthy occurrences are pertaining to my wonderful school. We now have our own hashtag on Twitter, called #DUprobz. This has been expanded to a Twitter account, also named @DUprobz . The profile picture is of Bob Barker, former host of “The Price is Right” and also a Drury graduate. After about one week, @DUprobz has almost 250 followers, which is like 1/6 of the school probably. Some of my favorites:

  • The kid across from me in the Olin Library keeps farting, but he must think I can’t hear it because I have headphones in. @DUprobz
  • I was late for class because the CX took so long making my mocha smoothie. #DUprobz
  • Explaining to your relatives that you go to Drury UNIVERSITY not Drury Inn Hotels and Suites. #TheresADifferenceGrandma #DUprobz
  • DU solution: Take the windshield wipers off your car. Now security doesn’t know where to put your parking ticket. @DUprobz
  • Commons girl put 5 mini corndogs on my plate but then took one back. Apparently she knows I can’t handle 5.
  • Is it safe to go in the Drury library bathroom today or is there gonna be another naked hobo in there? @DUprobz
  • I dropped a cup in the Commons today and received a round of applause accompanied by vulgar insults and mom jokes. #DUprobz

The other funny thing is that I accidentally stumbled across the “Incidence Reports” on our school website.
November 2011 – “Officer catches two high schoolers who climbed onto the Bay Hall roof.”
“Resident Assistant called Security regarding possible marijuana in Sunderland Hall.”
“Suspicious person was removed from a Lay Hall classroom.”

And those are just some! It’s so awesome to see all the reports, especially when you go back to like 2005 because the reports are super detailed and it says who was drunk and got taken to the hospital with alcohol poisoning, and what these people’s IDs and birthdays are, and everything like that. One of my personal favorites is from January 17, 2005. “Student upset after receiving ticket.” I particularly enjoyed the vocabulary with which he verbally assaulted the officer.

I highly encourage you to check this out and also try and find if your school has anything like that.

Peace out

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
