Jansen Panettiere Doesn’t Go Here Anymore

6 Mar

Hi everyone. How is it Wednesday again already?? This semester is flying by.

This past weekend, Kelvin came down to visit. He stayed at Laura (Graham’s girlfriend)’s apartment. Graham is studying abroad in Greece this semester. On Saturday the three of us went to lunch at El Maguey and I talked to the waiter in Spanish. Then we went to the grocery store to buy cake mix and ice cream. We were sort of celebrating Kelvin’s birthday which was last month.

For Kelvin’s birthday, I presented him with movie called Fantastic Mr. Fox. This is funny because he let me borrow that movie almost 2 years ago and I don’t know why he did that because I was scared to watch it. The animation creeped me out and I had no desire to watch it and I told him that I wouldn’t. Anyway, it was lost at my house for the past 2 years but finally my mom found it so I gave it back to him and said it was his birthday present. We watched it (and it wasn’t that scary) and we also watched the Breakfast Club which I had never seen before. Then we went to Potter’s House and played Chinese checkers.

That was a pretty fun Saturday, because sometimes I get into too much of a routine and that was nice to shake it up a little bit.

Housing sign-ups are this month, and I was a little worried because I won’t sign up like normal since I’ll be gone in the fall for study abroad. Caitlin is living with 3 girls in her sorority, and since one (named Grace) is an architecture student, she will have to study abroad in Greece in spring 2014 or fall 2014. If it was spring, then I could move in there when Grace went to Greece. But then Grace found out she was going in the fall. So as far as I knew, I would be homeless when I got back.

Then on Monday, something wonderful happened. I saw one of the girls I’m rooming with in London that I kind of know, named Hanna, and her best friend Morgan. Hanna asked me where I’m living next spring when I get back, and I said nowhere! Then she invited me to live with her and Morgan in University Suites (the really nice apartments, 4 bedroom/4 bathroom, living room, dining room, kitchen, laundry, dishwasher, etc.) Hanna said Morgan is moving in with two girls in the fall who will study abroad in the spring, then when they’re gone Hanna and I will move in. Now we just need to find one more person for the whole year.

That was really nice because I kind of really wanted to live in University Suites so I hope it works out. Mostly though, I thought it was really nice because I don’t know Hanna or Morgan very well but I was a little bit flattered that they asked me to live with them! I see it as an opportunity to make some more friends.

P.S. Jansen Panettiere doesn’t go here anymore. I saw online somewhere that he said he liked it here but was “taking some time off” to “focus on his writing.” I call BS. You’re not a writer.

No loyalty

21 Mar

Hey everybody, guess what? Spring break. That’s what I have right now.

It was much needed.

I made it through Thursday and Friday last week, and headed home around 11:15 am on Friday, getting home at about 2:15. On Friday night we went to a fish fry at St. Ann’s because we hadn’t gone to one in about 4 years so we went.

Saturday I slept until 11:30 which was glorious and then had St. Patrick’s Day lunch of corned beef and cabbage. Then my family went to the parade on the square which wasn’t really worth it because it only lasted 15 minutes but it was too nice outside to not go. We went to church at 5 on Saturday and then had dinner, and watched Super 8 on demand.

Sunday I slept some more. My dad had to go to work all day so my mom asked us if we wanted to go to the zoo. The last time we went to the zoo was during the summer of 2010 with Moritz and it cost the 5 of us like $75, but this time they had some thing where if you live in Jackson county it’s only like $5 each so it was only $20. We saw the polar bear, he was so cool. I have a photography assignment over landscapes to shoot over break but mostly I just took pictures of animals, sue me.

You can probably guess this but I slept until 10:45 on Monday. I apologize for highlighting what time I woke up every day but it’s just such an important thing that I can’t leave it out. I went to Hy-Vee and…. asked if I can have my job back for the summer. They said of course. I don’t really want to be a cashier again but I can do it for 2 months and I need the money, especially if I ever plan to pay my parents back for a certain $800 plane ticket… Then I went to the square and applied at Clinton’s and UpDog because if I could get another job that would be flipping sweet. I figured those might be places that would possibly be hiring for the summer since it gets kind of touristy over here. I wanted to apply at Yogurtini too but they said it was online. Moritz is coming on July 6 and I’m gonna need something to pass the time from May 9 when I get out of school until then.

Yesterday I seriously didn’t do anything. I woke up during the hour of 9:00 (wtf) and I watched tv shows on demand. Mostly it was Dance Moms. I have a strange addiction to that show, which is weird because I’ve never danced a day in my life. But that dance teacher is so dramatic. She kind of reminds me of Ms. Thompson but Ms. Thompson is much nicer. Also I watched Four Weddings. But the weather is so crappy that there’s nothing else to do. Kelvin asked if he could come get his movie while I’m home (he left a movie called Fantastic Mr. Fox in Springfield when he came to visit Graham. I never want to watch that movie, it looks effing creepy. But I brought it home with me during October in case he needed to get it from my family anytime. Well now I don’t know where it is and he wants it back so I kept telling him “come tomorrow” every day and “tomorrow” suddenly turned into yesterday.)

Today I went to Kohl’s and Marshall’s with my mom to buy some sandals. Then we went to Cherry Berry because it’s right there on 39th St. Cherry Berry is just like Yogurtini, Yogurtopia, Peach Wave, Orange Leaf, etc… only with a different color scheme (red and green). So apparently I have no loyalty to these places because I just get yogurt wherever it’s convenient. One thing I will say about Cherry Berry is that their yogurt did not melt one single bit during the time I was eating it.

Guess which one's mine?


Moritz had 3 of his 4 big tests this week, and his last one is on Monday! YAY!!!!

In other news, my mom told me she had a message on the answering machine that there were shots fired in Chrisman’s parking lot last night. Classy Chrisman. Why are you so classy?
