15 days.

7 Nov

15 days. THAT’S HOW MANY DAYS UNTIL LONDON. The other day I bought some milk and saw that the expiration date is on the 24th. Then I thought to myself, “Hum, this milk is going to expire when I’m in London.” Also, today my foreign monies came in for the trip. And earlier this week we booked our train tickets for Paris and Bruges. Also, today I watched Winning London on YouTube. I used to borrow it from the library all the time. Also my life will literally be this BuzzFeed article once we get to London.

Monday I had an advising meeting, which was kind of pointless. I just sat there and told my adviser what I had planned on taking because I don’t really have a set schedule of things I need to take since I’m just sort of wasting time. I’m kind of taking prerequisites for other nursing schools so I can also apply to them next semester. But as of right now, it looks like I’ll be at 14 credit hours Monday through Thursday, taking English 2, Med Term, Public Speaking, Biology Lab, and Foundations of Art. I tried so hard to get by with just 12 credits but it was difficult to with biology only being 2 credits. Beginning Chinese was an option but I decided against it since they meet every single day in conjunction with a one day a week lab, also it was 6 credits. O.o

I’ve come to the conclusion that I am so tired of school. My work ethic as well as my attendance in most of my classes has gone down a bit (the only class I haven’t skipped at least once this semester is my music appreciation class, which is the class I probably could actually skip because it’s so easy). And being completely honest, this is probably the laziest I’ve ever been. For example, yesterday I accomplished nothing, except for watching a lot of Netflix. I watched a couple episodes of Breaking Bad, rewatched an episode of Sherlock, and watched 21 & Over. Have you guys seen Say Anything? It’s an 80’s Rom-Com and I watched it yesterday too and it was the greatest. Anyway, if JR were to hold up a boom box at my window… LOL. JKJK. 😀

Peace out, girl scouts.

PS. Sorry for the mass rambling of this post. I didn’t really know what to write about this week.

T-Minus ONE DAY.

15 Nov

Yep that’s right. Thanksgiving break is just around the corner. And I’m sooo excited to go home for a whole week! I’ve been counting down the days for awhile now… But to be completely honest I feel like it came out of no where. Time goes by so fast these days. And it’s just two more weeks after we get back until it’s Christmas Break. Can’t believe I’m been at Mizzou for a semester already. CRAZY. But I’m so glad it’s almost over.

This week I found out I’m going to Arizona for the first week of break with my dad and step-mom. We had discussed taking a vacation when I had gone home 2 weeks ago since my dad didn’t get to go with us to Hogwarts (Orlando, FL actually. But it might as well been Hogwarts. Sounds cooler anyway). The first destination my dad suggested was ENGLAND (AHHHHHH!!!!!). But that got shot down because my step-mom doesn’t like cold weather… Pissed. I was so devastated (and I still am devastated). I probably could have cried. Legit. I’ll make it there eventually. Hopefully. Then they were looking a cruises. Not sure what happened there though… I would have been fine with that! Anyway, I’m pretty excited about the trip though because I’ve ever been to AZ.

Also, One Direction’s Take Me Home CD came out yesterday. I will say I really didn’t care for it when I first listened to it. But some of the songs are catchy. It’s pretty great! 245 DAYS UNTIL THE CONCERT. Can’t wait.

Lastly, I found this video of an 6 year old Asian piano prodigy on Ellen. I’m showing you because I understand everything they’re saying!! It’s the Chinese I can actually understand and know how to speak!! Plus the kid’s pretty good.

The Mundane Life

18 Oct

Basically there’s not much excitement going on in my life right now. Besides going to the Rec pretty much everyday this week (except for Sunday because I had a paper due Monday and didn’t start it until last minute– would you expect anything different?! 🙂 ), I’ve been studying, and watching TV shows… pretty much like Kens (except not Gilmore Girls…) Haha!

I don’t remember if I told you this but I signed up for a 5K this weekend. It benefits the children’s hospital and some younger cancer patients. I also get volunteer hours for running it (let’s be honest though, I’ll probably be walking most of it!) I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t excited for it. Mainly because we get t-shirts!!!! Although I did have to pay for it… But it goes to the kids! Guess I can’t complain about that!

Yesterday some lady on the bus asked me, “What nationality are you?” I could’ve made some conversation after my reply of “Chinese” but it was just too dang early and I had stayed up for a while studying the night before. I kind of regret not making conversation because she looked some sort of Asian. That could’ve been my first Asian friend made at Mizzou. Sigh.

Today I finally got all my speeding ticket goodness settled. And that’s a relief because I was going a bit paranoid every time I saw police car because I didn’t want a warrant out for my arrest. Unfortunately getting arrested is not on my bucket list, like it is on some others I know. Anyway, I’ve been pretty speed conscious recently because I do not want to have to go through that process ever again.

In other mundane news, I painted my nails today. And I watched the Sound of Music. I love that musical.

Missing you all! G+ soon?!

This is me procrastinating.

16 Feb

What up, broskis. Not much going on here because I’m procrastinating my studying (what’s new?).

Anyway this past weekend, Kendyl told you about our spontaneous road trip to NWMS. That was was interesting, but pretty fun. Except having a car that doesn’t have cruise control really does suck for driving long distances.

This week has been super stressful. Pretty much every night this week, I’ve been up until 2:30-3 in the morning worrying about various classes (specifically anatomy). Thankfully it snowed Sunday night/Monday morning and anatomy at 7:45 was canceled. So that meant that we didn’t have to take the quiz that was scheduled, and that gave me an extra 2 days to study. And also I got like an extra hour of sleep, which was nice.

On Valentine’s day, all the single ladies of our floor got together and ordered chinese take-out and played cranium. The chinese was actually pretty tasty. And during Cranium, Lei and I were partners, which didn’t work out too well because we came in last place. But that night was nice because I didn’t have symphony rehearsals and I wasn’t stuck in the band room for 3 hours of my life. However I ended up studying for anatomy (again) until late, which sucked.

Yesterday we had Formal Introductions for all the new Greeks. It was fancy-schmancy-ish. But basically all of the frats went around to each wing of the sorority complex and you walked down the staircase with a new frat guy and they said your name…. blah blah blah. We all also had to mingle… gross. For the most part it was quite entertaining though, because you got to see who made it into frats. One frat prepared a song, another did a Q and A session with a new sorority girl and frat guy, and they brought roses for every girl. We sang a song back to the frat who sang. And our song was…. provocative to say the least. Here’s some of what we sang: “we’re tired of being proper and prim”… “start life over leading it full of sin”…. something about “drinking margaritas in between class”…. “swinging on an outhouse door” with a nightie or something…. and the purpose of a nightie is “to be removed.” Yeah, I cannot begin to describe the awkward-ness I felt when I was singing that song… especially since I drink margaritas and like to swing on outhouse doors all the time. The whole introduction process took about 2 hours. After we got back from the complex, my whole hall got a little crazy and slap happy, and we all went to the costume closet and picked a bunch of random crap to wear and took pictures. That was actually quite fun. (Kendyl has the proof… lol.) Then after that, Kendyl and I went to the anatomy lab to finish looking at stupid bones. I ended up staying up until like 3:30 because I had another assignment that I procrastinated (The teacher didn’t even check my work today! so basically I stayed up for nothing!! pissed.)

Today I haven’t done anything too exciting. Had anatomy lab. I painted my nails. Vacuumed the floor. Studied for anatomy. Went to written communications (probably one of the lamest classes ever). Today we worked on citations. And apparently we have all been doing them wrong, and we’re not allowed to use citation machine because it’s also wrong. The teacher border line wack. She’s the biggest grammar nazi ever, no joke.

Anyway, here’s my pop culture reference of the week:


Jeremy Lin. Linsanity.
He’s chinese like me!!! And he’s also freakin’ baller. Aweee yeeeah.

That’s it from me!

I know. It’s not my blogging day.

23 Jan

Sorry to interupt the blogging schedule. But I have a very important message to bring to you guys.

 

IT’S CHINESE NEW YEAR!!!
It’s the year of the dragon, in case you were wondering. My crazy uncle told me a few weeks ago that since it’s supposed to be a very lucky year, a lot of people (more so Asian people) will be planning to get married this year. And also there’ll be a lot of what comes with marriage, AKA babies. I’ll let you put 2 and 2 together. Yeah, talk about a little bit awkward.

Here’s a CNY music video for your viewing pleasure.

 

And also a picture of Ni Hao Kai Lan on CNY.
