Classy like Chrisman

28 Nov

I agree with Kendyl, Thanksgiving break was awesome and definitely too short. After eating way too much food for about 5 days straight, I’ve now resumed the standard position of Starving College Student.

One of my favorite parts about Thanksgiving break was that we put up the Christmas tree on Friday night and decorated it on Saturday. We never used to do it this early, but the rule was always that it had to be up before my birthday (December 14th), but last year since I wouldn’t be home from college until after the 14th, we did it at Thanksgiving, so the tradition continues. Another one of my favorite parts of the break was when our next-door neighbor Don (the mayor) called and said he had 6 tickets for the Missouri Comets (pro indoor soccer) game that night, and did we want them? We definitely wanted them! I guess I should mention that the other 4/5 of my family have been to 2 Comets games in the past year, also free tickets from the mayor. I am so happy I got to go this time! I asked if I could invite Nick since there were only 5 of us and so Nick went with us too.

The best part of the Comets game was that we got to sit in one of the Box Suites! There was free popcorn, pretzels, and pop and it was so splendid. I had never been in this arena in the Independence Events Center before, so when we were walking through a hallway to our suite, I asked “Where do all the peasants sit?” This was funny because for some reason “Peasant” was a word that Becky kept using to describe us (me and her) because we don’t have Instagram and have DumbPhones. (AKA no Internet). But anyway, I was seriously feeling like high-class royalty during the game.

Then I had to come back to school blahblah. I am trying not to “let the man get me down” by remembering that in 2 weeks from today I will be out of here! Just keep swimming, just keep swimming! (Dory voice) Also, 24 days until Germany! Where are you guys doing over Christmas break? I leave December 21st but I am free from the 11th until then! When are you going to SUOMI Kendyl??

Also, the drama with Chrisman right now is so horrible but in a strange way I’m gonna just say this: It’s probably the first day ever ever that I kind of wish I still went to school at that wretched place. Because I bet that was a really funny and interesting environment to be in today, and also I really enjoy intense awkward social situations. S/O to T-Laugh if you’re reading this, you should totally comment and tell me how the day was.

I think I am going to make cookies tonight. #YOLO

Keep it Classy like Chrisman

Free Shirts and Shit.

20 Sep

Yesterday was Fire Factor, it’s basically a fire safety demo. They literally lit a make-shift dorm room on fire to show you how fast a fire can spread. Afterwards there were free t-shirts and Shakespeare’s Pizza if you filled out a survey. We skipped class for that (I justified it because I had just taken 2 tests back-to-back). That’s my YOLO this week. Livin’ big, I know. Once I heard it was Shakespeare’s Pizza, that sealed the deal for skipping class. Haha! Before the fire thing, we got another free t-shirt and pizza from the Arts and Science Fall Welcome. Then there was a booth in front of the Union that was handing out t-shirts for registering to vote. We had already registered, but we asked if we could have a t-shirt anyway. Hello t-shirt #3 for the day. Also since yesterday was “international talk like a pirate day” they were giving out pirate’s booty snacks and those chocolate coins. Delish.

Tomorrow there’s a girls soccer game. The first 500 people in get free t-shirts. You know where we’ll be tomorrow.

We just got back from Poetry in the Park. That was a cultural experience. And I’ve never felt more like a minority. But Kendyl was probably feeling more out of place than I was… I’m at least kind of, sort of dark skinned… ish….. LOL. I’m going to be honest, Kendyl and I originally went to the event because we had heard that there was going to be free B-Dubs. There was and it was delicious. But in the end I think we both enjoyed ourselves and had a a pretty good time even if it was freezing cold and we both had to pee badly towards the end. Not going to lie, Slam Poetry is pretty awesome and those people have really got powerful stuff to say. I could never do that in front of a crowd all by myself.

I’m really diggin’ MIZ with all the free shirts and shit. Legit.

Also in case you haven’t heard the news… ONE DIRECTION HAS A NEW SONG OUT!! WUT. I’ve probably listened to it at least a hundred+ times already. What’s kind of sad is that Kendyl knew about the song before I did! What is the world coming to?! But I loveeee it! Even if the lyrics make them seem like man-whores. It’s catchy, what can I say. 302 days until I see them LIVE at the Sprint Center!! That’s what’s up. ^_^
