Rest In Pieces to My Summer

7 Aug

Well, the end of my summer is nigh. I’m down to 5 days until I leave for my semester in London now.

Last Sunday (July 28) was my last day at IHOP. Since then, I’ve been all about trying to have as much fun as I can with the people here that are important to me.

My family and I went camping in our backyard on Saturday night. We played 20 questions in the tent and Harry Potter Uno, just like always. On Sunday morning, we went to IHOP (not the one I worked at) for breakfast to celebrate my parents’ anniversary. It’s actually on August 19 (but we won’t all be around on the 19th this year) and we started the tradition of going on their anniversary 13 years ago in San Antonio, Texas, when we were on vacation there. That was back when you could be on vacation on August 19 because school didn’t start until September. Those were the days. Anyway I was definitely an expert on the menu when we went the other day. I didn’t even need to open mine to know what I wanted and I was able to counsel my family members on their breakfast choices by providing guidance and ingredient information.

Here are the things that Derek, Kendyl, Megan, and I did last week: went to Derek’s house, had breakfast at Burger King, almost went to a Silversun Pickups concert, changed our mind and went to a movie downtown, had homemade chow mein at Megan’s, went to World Market (world market, we’re talkin’ bout world market), had pie from Burger King, and made sushi just to name a few activities.

Yesterday was also a very fun friend-filled day. We (along with Gentry) went to the Kansas City Zoo and we rode the Skyfari. It was pretty fun, unfortunately it started getting pretty hot and then we really needed to get out of there. Then we took a trip to Oklahoma Joe’s Barbecue for lunch and all had the Z-Man sandwich except for Gentry. Lolz.

Later I invited them over to my house for dinner because we’ve eaten dinner a lot at Megan’s house this summer but not at mine. My mom made us stuffed shells and I made cupcakes. It was really nice sitting around the table and talking for hours. Also I learned how to do the cup song from Pitch Perfect.

I decorated these cupcakes with the UK flag 😉

These three will be visiting me in November! Love them ❤ #london2013

Well, there’s definitely more fun to come at the end of the week. Friday is Megan’s birthday and we’re going to have dinner and swim at Kendyl’s house, then go camping 😉 And Saturday night I’ll go to the Sporting KC soccer game with my dad, just the two of us.  We went to a game last fall and it was awesome so I’m pretty excited for that too! 🙂

Don’t know if I’ll blog again before I leave for Europe, I doubt it 😉

Rest In Pieces to my summer (and to gray squirrel).

the honey badger is my idol this week

7 Mar

Hello all. This week has been most uneventful. But you know me, usually I can come up with some random shit to talk about.

I skipped my photography class on Thursday morning and ohh it was glorious. I spent the evening studying for a computer science test that I would allegedly have on Friday, however this event never occurred.

Friday morning I woke up around 6am feeling like my head was going to split open. I was also sweating to death and felt extremely like I was going to throw up, but I didn’t. It was a migraine, which I’ve never really had before. I stumbled out of bed and sat down at my computer, covering my face with my hands because it hurt my head to look at the bright screen. I kind of typed some words to my professors which I read later and were not so legible. Anyway, I went back to bed until around 11 and felt better and went up to Caitlin’s room to hang out. But around 3 I started having some trouble seeing, like when I would look at a word I could only see one letter. When I looked at Caitlin and Alexis, I could only see one part of them that I was focusing on, like one eye. It was frightening. Then I kind of lost my peripheral vision and saw a lot of zigzags on the stuff that I was looking at. My mom wanted me to go to the ER but I said nahhh bro honey badger don’t care.

Saturday I slept late and was feeling better, and in the evening I went to this dance party at someone’s church where we needed costumes. With only about an hour’s notice, I dressed up as a hipster and I think I made a pretty good one. My hair was already dirty so that helped.

Sunday I once again didn’t do anything really. I folded laundry and skyped and that was it.

Monday I woke up and was feeling pretty good, and my computer science teacher sympathized with me because he said he’s had a migraine before and that I could just take the test Wednesday (today). But during my last class of the day at 11 I started having problems seeing again. It was a little different though – you know when you look at the sun and it kind of burns a big spot into your eye for a while? It was like that when I looked at my professor, only I hadn’t been recently looking at the sun. It didn’t last as long as Friday, but then my headache came back and it was angry. I was supposed to go get help with a computer science project that was due today but instead I went to sleep for about 3 hours. I felt better when I got up though.

Yesterday I had photography at 8, which all we did was a critique and I don’t know how this teacher managed to drag out a critique of 10 people’s photos for an hour and a half. At 9:30 I went back to bed until 11 when I met Caitlin for lunch. Then at 11:30 I went to computer science lab, and my teacher kept asking me how I was feeling and stuff like that, he’s really nice. I’m sad I won’t be taking computer science any more after this year because he is a great person and I like him a lot. I’m just not sure how much long I can stand dismally failing.

Then I had my video class, where I swear it was 80 degrees in there and it was like 70 outside. Not cool. (Literally.) We watched each other’s videos from the last project and we were all comatose to say the least. But mine actually made people laugh, it was another HIPSTER vid so I’ll post that on FB when I can figure out how to get my hard drive to work. My teacher enjoyed it too I think.

Moritz and I have been making webcam videos for each other since we still haven’t been able to talk quite as much, so it’s really cute and I like that a lot! Less than 3 weeks until he’s done, so that’s great, but unfortunately the colleges he’s applying to STILL haven’t received his paperwork 😦 I’m kind of getting into apathetic mode to be quite honest, which I know is bad but I can’t help it. Honey badger don’t care. Sorry I’m overusing that phrase today guys, but I just remembered him and I really like it so I just need to use it as much as possible.

Morgan and Kelsey are coming to visit me Saturday, YAY! I’m ready to eat until our sides split. WOOO HOO!

Next week is going to be hell with an 8 page paper due, a Spanish test, a Spanish oral presentation, a photography assignment, and a video all due. FML. I hope I’m still alive at this point next week, guess we’ll find out.
