#RoommateProbz

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.

RIP to my favorite band and almost to me graduating ever.

This past weekend was Jack’s Mannequin’s final show(s) ever. I am very distraught by this fact but feeling extremely lucky that I got to go to their concert last year. Last week I was searching for “Jack’s Mannequin” on ebay to see if there was any good merchandise, and I came across something that I thought only existed in my dreams: a large square poster of their first CD cover (my favorite) called Everything in Transit, which just so happened to be AUTOGRAPHED! It was even better than in my dreams! I’d pretty much given up hope on ever finding something like that, because I figured that it probably didn’t even exist in the world, but somehow it did. The bidding started at $9.99, and I ended up winning with a bid for $35. Not even feeling guilty about it. Totally worth it, good thing I have a job now right? Anyway, I’ve spent a lot of time this weekend watching videos of the concert on youtube and feeling nostalgic.

There were about 30 minutes this week where I thought I was just going to quit college, fo rillz. Wanna know why? Because of this damned little thing called class registration. I started preparing for this weeks ago. I had every semester planned until graduation, with everything I needed to get my Advertising and PR major, and Global Studies and Spanish minors. Students with more credit hours started registering last week, and I decided to go online and see how many seats were still open in the two classes that I absolutely NEEDED to take next semester, because they are pre-requisites to pretty much every communication class ever. So I go to the course search, and what do I find? BOTH OF THEM WERE EFFING FULL. WHAT!!!??? I didn’t understand! WHAT upperclassmen were signing up for these classes!? Surely if they really needed them, they would have taken them much sooner than the second semester of their junior/senior year?! I frantically emailed both professors asking them what I should do, I was also grudgingly thinking about having to move my study abroad to next spring…

Then I went into the living room to pout. I recounted my story of endless woe to Caitlin and Kayla. Caitlin asked me if I was sure that I was looking at the courses for spring semester, not fall. So I went back, and sure enough, I was looking at the courses that were already full because they were happening THIS semester. Whoops… then I checked spring semester and only like 2 or 3 seats were taken in each. You know what I had to do then, right? I had to email those professors and be like, lol jk, false alarm. But I was so happy that I gained my life back, that I wasn’t even that embarrassed. In other news, due to a strange turn of events, I’m taking senior seminar in Spanish next semester, nbd. Also thinking about just going ahead and majoring in it too.

In other other news, QUIDDITCH CUP CHAMPION RIGHT HERE. Proud member of the Hulking Hippogriffs. Quidditch sign-ups were individual or in pairs, and on the day of the tournament, they assigned teams. Luckily, Caitlin and I got put on a team with two super-athlete Frisbee players, and a cross country runner who could be the Seeker. I did score a few goals though! 🙂

P.S. Question of the day: How the hell is Ms. Sparks’ nickname Libbi when her real name is Katherine??
