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.

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?

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.
