El fin! Hasta enero, Springfield. Hasta pronto, amigos :-)

15 May

I am free! 🙂

This is a little bittersweet though. It’s been the best semester of college by far, potentially the best of my life ever. It was much needed after the worst semester of college and my life ever last semester. But this one has been awesome. I am a little sad it’s over and that I won’t see a lot of my friends and professors or be on Drury’s campus until January. But then I remember I’m going to LONDON in 3 months so I stop being sad pretty quick.

I actually haven’t been that stressed out this week. I’ve been stressed all semester, in a good way though. It kept me busy and kept me going all the time, but I just feel so satisfied when I check things off my list of things to do, so I’ve been managing my time really well. Considering how much I’ve been working, I’ve had to. So I never got panicked-stressed out.

Friday night we had our final Summit project presentations. Here’s me and my roommates outside our house wearing our Volunteer shirts we got from the shelter.

Today I had my final presentation of my research project. I still can’t believe that dang project that wouldn’t go away is… gone. If anyone’s interested in learning about Media Framing of the Sandy Hook Shooting and wants to read a 17-page paper about it, hit me up. My mom told me she thought it would be really boring but it kept her attention. So there’s a testimonial, if you’re skeptical.

I got my final grades for my two Spanish classes where I have an awesome teacher. 97.75% in Spanish 302 and 97.6% in Senior Seminar! I got a 98% on both of my final papers. The other day I was talking to my professor and she said I’ve really improved a lot and I am probably one of the ones who have improved the most.

Here’s a picture of me and my class at her house after the Iniciación ceremony for the Sigma Delta Pi honor society! Those little kids are another professor’s kids.

enyay

I’m really going to miss my Spanish class!

I don’t know what to do with myself now. Probably eat a lot of food, right? I’ve been having a lot of Chipotle and pizza lately.

Or maybe I should work on cleaning this:

… Nah. I’m going to enjoy my freedom for now.

Here’s a list of some of the best things about this semester (no particular order):

  • Going to Atlanta to watch the basketball team win the national championship
  • Getting the outstanding sophomore in the communication department award
  • Eating dinner at my Spanish professor’s house with my class
  • Winning extra credit for our research poster
  • A cat named Georgie at the animal shelter
  • IPHONE
  • Getting prepared to go to London
  • Making new friends with people in my classes
  • Being addicted to the Jodi Arias trial (Guilty- first degree premeditated murder)
  • Going to St. Louis for a weekend with Caitlin
  • Not having any classes I hate
  • Not having calculus which is the ultimate class I hate

I’ll be home on Friday night, see you guys for Dirty Dancing on Saturday night! I’ll make some snakes. Oops I meant to say snacks, but it’s funny that I said snakes instead so I decided not to change it.

And t-minus six days until the Of Monsters and Men concert! That kind of snuck up on us, didn’t it? Hooray!

P.S. Let’s come watch Andy Roddick play on the Springfield Lasers tennis team sometime this summer! I don’t really know anything about him but I know you guys do.

P.P.S. I’m still in shock it’s summer now. IT’S SUMMER RIGHT NOW. It feels like it was just last summer, right? I’m so excited for pie-worthy stories and sitting on the big rock at Bass Pro and being scared of creepy people and raccoons. Can we go camping on your property again, Kendyl? I wonder if Nick will be allowed this year.

P.P.P.S. How is it that we graduated from Chrisman 2 years ago? How is it that we just finished our SOPHOMORE YEAR OF COLLEGE?

Star Wars

23 Oct

Crazy times have I been having. (I think this is something Yoda would say, but I’ve never seen Star Wars and don’t even know if it’s 2 words or not. The only time I attempted to watch the movie was Freshman year on the way to Disney with the band. Rees was going to explain the whole thing to me, but fell asleep, so I did too.)

I have fallen behind on a lot of things this semester and it’s just now hitting me. I haven’t written as many letters to you guys or anyone and that kind of makes me sad. Letters are so special to me- even if they are simple and silly they are important. So, I apologize for that. I also have been slacking on keeping you all updated with this blog. I forgot my day for a little bit. But no excuses! And of course I’m sucking it up at school work. I think that it’s one of many of our running themes. It’s past midterm season and I have learned close to nothing.

Anywho: Tonight was my first game of the year for intramural indoor soccer. Best league ever. My team has 4 good players, which is 2 more than last year. We only lost by 11, and we got to play until there was less than 30 seconds left in the game- so that’s a plus!

My weekend was spent in Estes Park, the most beautiful place in the world during the fall. I went up there for the Journey conference that the Navigators put on every year. All the Navigators from the Rocky Mountain region get together for this one weekend every year. Groups from New Mexico all the way up Wyoming come to Estes for this conference. It was such a great thing to be in a place with like 600 college students who all love and serve God. Worship was crazy great. I just want to be back there again.

26 days until Thanksgiving break yo

I’m really hooked on the TV show Smash. Musicals are my favorite and there was an episode with Nick Jonas. It’s full of greatness.

That’s all- Morgan

Today I saw a video on breading cats. I dont know if you’ve heard of it before. But here’s a picture.

I’m not the biggest fan of cats (for one I’m allergic but depending on which cat they are, they can be cute) but I found this rather hilarious.

Anyway, XGames were freaking awesomely ganstalicious and nothing less!! My appreciation for Shaun White has definitely gone up. And seeing him make history by getting a perfect score was so so so great! I’m sure it’ll be something I tell my kids one day. LOL.
Also, I ended up joining a sorority– the little bit socially awkward sorority (i had no other choice actually. there are some girls I know I’ll be okay being around and have a good time and what-not, but there are others that I don’t think I would have said a word to ever if I wasn’t in this sorority). I’m not sure how well it will go, I just have to see. But I can almost safely say that I will be flat broke if I don’t get a job soon. I just emailed a lady about getting a job on campus. We’ll see how that goes… I’ll keep you updated.
Last night I didn’t go to bed until about 2.30. Not good when you have class at 7.45. I totally didn’t even hear my alarm go off the 7 times it did. When I woke up, I was like “Hum… it’s awfully bright outside for 7 am” little did I know it was 7.43. I got ready in like 5 minutes (probably a record time).

That it for now. Hope you’re all swell!

UPDATE:
Look what I found in my psych book!!
