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?

Mehh.

I don’t feel like writing or thinking, but I haven’t blogged in a while, so here it goes.

Lately I have been extremely busy. I have been working 12 hours at the library every week and then between 24 and 28 at the marina. The only day I have off from work are Wednesdays so I try to get all of my schoolwork done then. In the past 2 days I have only been to 1 out of 4 classes… oops.

I finished training at the library last week (which means shelving books in every area of the library) so now I get to listen to music while I shelve… It’s the little things. 🙂

Yesterday I drove my car up to Hearnes and then road the bus to work. After work when I get back to Hearnes I realize that I no longer had my car keys (which included my only two car keys, drivers license, both my debit cards, my MU id, and my work card). I had to get Megan to come get me and she took me to check in the library. Then we went to the MU police to see if anyone turned them in. MU police gave me the number for the main bus station, but they were closed for the evening so I had to wait and call back in the morning. In the meantime I had to cancel both of my debit cards, so no one could steal all of the money I just got paid last week. This morning I called the main station and got referred to the MU transportation office and I gave them a description of my keys. Then I road up to school for my class and asked the bus driver if she had anyone turn in a set of keys, but her radio wasn’t working so, she sent me to the bus across the street. When I started to ask this bus driver I barely got anything out before she pointed to my keys hanging on her rearview mirror. I can not tell you how happy I was to see them. Needless to say this was a very stressful, unneeded experience.

Also this video is Hilarious… and slightly explicit.

Keep it Classy.

P.S. I just bought a hammock off of the Clymb… pretty stoaked about that.

P.P.S. I’m going to buy Dirty Dancing off of Amazon next. Can’t wait to see you all!

P.P.P.S. We need to go to a Royals game because they are actually pretty good this year!!

Weather Report: The past few days have been marvelous. With a High pressure system moving slowly over the north central part of Colorado, clear skies and warm weather have been abundant. Unfortunately  after many days of sun, pink skin is bound to happen! Especially because of the altitude… However, Tuesday and Wednesday will be days to recover, rain/snow mix is headed my way just in time to be reminded that it is not summer quite yet.

Summer is so close. Just think, in two weeks, most of us will be considered juniors in college. When did we grow up? And how do we prevent it from happening?

But before we can think of summer, it’s time for Hell Week and then Finals. Starting Monday my finals begin. I have a 30 minute lesson plan to give. This is the longest lesson plan I’ve created and I’m so glad I have a partner to do it with me. Teaching in front of children isn’t scary really, but teaching in front of 25 college students who are supposed to act just as excited and involved as children is not quite as fun. But, once that is over, that is one class complete!

I am nowhere near ready for the summer to be here. I don’t have everything ironed out in my house situation yet, I still have a ton of Navs stuff to prepare for, I have three finals on Friday May 10th, I have to find a place for my things over the summer which I haven’t packed yet, I have graduation parties to attend, and I have friends moving away that I want to spend time with. To much to do with so little time. If I could spend these last two weeks doing anything I wanted I would be playing Rummy with Ryan and Tori, making grad gifts for all my senior friends, playing soccer and tennis with all my friends, and planning camp games in my spare time.

Well, instead of day dreaming, I’m going to night dream… It’s about time I get on a good sleeping schedule.

p.s. I would like to complain for a moment: the ac in my room insists on blowing hot air. I sweat more in my sleep than I do at the gym

p.p.s. I can’t wait to watch Dirty Dancing with you guys at Kendyl’s. We need to eat unhealthy things while this is happening…
