5 Dec

Although it’s clearly the very best month of the year, things have been a little on the hellish side so far.

Here’s a word of advice: never work with an architecture student on a big project, because they will be too busy spending 12 hours or more in the architecture (architorture?) studio every day and not giving a damn about whatever project they’re supposed to be working on with you. Which is understandable, you know, it’s just annoying when I have to research Springfield’s “Natural Disaster Preparedness Action Plan” and write a proposal on how to improve it complete with a financial analysis in the form of a 6+ page paper that my teacher is actually going to submit to the city of Springfield.

We’ve also had our first “roommate conflict” in the house. The other night I heard Kayla complaining to Deidre about me and Caitlin. I don’t think she knew I was home, but I was actually standing in my room with my ear pressed up against the door. Then she proceeded to write a very rude and passive aggressive note on our whiteboard, rather than talk to us about the problem. That went over very well. The next day we had a “house meeting” which consisted of Kayla yelling at me and Caitlin. Also Deidre didn’t say a word even when we asked her to. So then I had to go to work, and I left in very dramatic fashion with Kayla maybe realizing that she was wrong as I walked out the door because she said “Cathy,” and put her hand on my shoulder but I said “I don’t want to talk right now.” But when I got to my car I realized that I had left my purse in my room, but I didn’t want to ruin my soap-opera exit by going back in to get it. So I just drove to work without my license, #YOLO.

In other very important news, I bought some nail polish on eBay last week. It’s called Maybelline Color Show Sequins, and it was limited edition for the month of November but it was the sparkliest nail polish I ever saw in my life so I just knew I needed to have it. The bad part was that I couldn’t find it ANYWHERE so I had to go with good old eBay. I’m practically a pro at that by now. Hopefully it will arrive before I get home next week, but here’s what it’s going to look like.


I still have class for the rest of the week but these classes consist of fiestas and watching videos, I just have a lot of shit to turn in beforehand.

Hi. It’s been an exceptionally unexceptional week.

I don’t remember anything about last week until Friday when I went home after my last class. It was raining, and I had to drive home in the rain. Most intense driving of my life. I got there around 4:30 and Becky got home around 7:30 because she got a ride from some people who went to Truman. After she got home our family immediately went to Hy-Vee because they were having a sale – one pint of Blue Bell ice cream for $1. That was awesome, we bought ten and also a lot of other snacks.

Saturday I worked at Up Dog. I worked with McKay and he wasn’t as annoying as I thought he would be and also I kind of made him my bitch and he did everything I told him to. It was weird because there are only about 3 people left who were there when I started working there in May, so I didn’t know everyone but basically I made everyone my bitches. Someone had made us a Santacaligon Bingo that included things like “Mullet” “Beer Belly” “Socks and Sandals” “Food-Stained Shirt” and “Kid on a leash.” It was awesome how it was raining because not that many people came in and I got to go home at 6 instead of 8. Then my family went to Walmart to buy some things me and Becky needed. I got an orange skillet and some silverware.

Sunday morning we went to church at 8 (yikes) because we wanted/needed to go to IHOP. We always go for my parents’ anniversary which was about 2 weeks ago but it was our first chance to go since me and Becky were at school. We usually go to the one by Outback Steakhouse but this time we went to the one near ghetto Walmart. We better start going to this one every year because we didn’t have any wait at all and by the time we got home it was only like 10:15, which was what time I would be waking up to go to church normally!

My grandparents came over around 1 and then I took a nap on the floor from like 2-3 because getting up at 7am is a hard task. We ate a bunch of food once my other grandma got here. Then around 5 we went to Santacaligon to see Cassie sing, and we thought she’d sing until 6, but when we got there at 5:20 she was almost done. Then we filled our root beer bottles and went home, it was too dang hot.

I came back to school on Monday, I got here around 8pm and Caitlin and I tried to get dinner on campus but it was closed so we went downtown and I lost my Jimmy John’s virginity.

Back to school, ughhh. I have a paper about Climate Change (wtf) due tomorrow, and this reaction paper en espanol. I think I am getting sophomore slump.


P.S. I just remembered that I have a job interview Friday. I keep forgetting about it. It’s for the Greene County Park Board, they have a ton of family activity centers and things like that, I think the position I am interviewing for is like a desk person. Huzzah.

Climate Change, WTF?

29 Aug

Hey everybody.

My first two weeks have just been aight.
With everything that’s going on with Moritz’s family right now, I’ve been having a really hard time concentrating on anything, I just worry about him so much. I’m super unmotivated and I basically feel like I’ve been a zombie ever since school started. This could also have something to do with the fact that I don’t give two shits about any of the classes I’m taking. Calculus I with this Russian guy who says “wariables” instead of “variables”. Sociology with this crazy lady who wears shirts that are too small for her large bosoms and admitted to smoking weed. Fit for life, come on, that one is self-explanatory. Adapting to Climate Change, WTF? And Spanish 301, Composition and Literature, where we read poems written in medieval Spanish when we don’t even understand regular Spanish, and all poems are ambiguous as hell already, so how am I even supposed to answer 30 questions about this damn poem? Hey, remember that time when I was supposed to be an Advertising and Public Relations major?

Life in the apartment is pretty good though, gotta admit.

In case you forgot, I’m living with Caitlin (suitemate from last year), Kayla (friend with German boyfriend, only said boyfriend now is attending Drury), Deidre (friend of Kayla’s) and Said Boyfriend from Germany, Tobi (he has a dorm but he practically lives here). He’s cool, I wish my Said Boyfriend lived here too.

So, the four of us girls have to start our service project pretty soon. Last night I spent the better part of 4 hours making our blog that we are supposed to have, instead of working on Spanish homework like I should have. Here’s the address to it, hopefully it becomes pretty rad. http://summitcares2013.blogspot.com. I decided to use blogspot because it gave me more editing liberties, and this blog has to go on the Drury webpage. Yikes.

That’s about all, but the only other noteworthy thing: Remember #DUprobz (@DUprobz) ? Well now there is @DUgossip. LOL! For some reason Springfield has a website where you can freely browse all the mugshots that your heart desires, and @DUgossip posts the mugshots of people from Drury and other funny stuff about people. They even have their own email so we can anonymously send in “tips.” How clever!

I’ll be home around 4 on Friday, until Monday afternoon. And I’ll be slinging wienies with Tristan from 12-8 on Saturday. I hope I see you guys at Santacaligon! (Except I won’t see you Morg) 😦
