real life honey badger right here

18 Apr

Hi everyone. Good news – school is almost out! Not as soon as it is for some certain lucky people named Derek and Morgan, but oh well!

Saturday I woke up and got very excited because Becky texted to say POTTERMORE was open! I have had this website set as my homepage for over 6 months, so you can imagine my frustration when THE INTERNET WAS DOWN BECAUSE OF THUNDERSTORMS. But never fear, I had Becky create me an account.

Then about an hour after waking up, I got a really bad migraine, complete with feeling nauseated… and it hadn’t gone away after about 3 and a half hours, two ibuprofen, and some Excedrin Migraine. My mom suggested that I go to the emergency room. So I called Kayla and luckily she was able to take me. I got there around 12:45pm. They put me in an awkward bed in the hallway, and apparently they wanted to do a CT scan on me and my mom was like “no, tell them not to, that’s unnecessary.” Eventually they gave me an IV with Benadryl because apparently that helps, but first they ruptured a vein in one of my arms which caused me to freak tf out. I finally got to leave around 5:30, and with my appetite fully restored, I took Kayla to Panera for dinner since she helped me out so much by taking me to the hospital. That night I went to her hometown, Republic, with her to help take some things home.

When I got home, POTTERMORE was ready for me! I got sorted into HUFFLEPUFF!!! I’m really excited, because Hufflepuffs are particularly good finders, and what the HELL is a Hufflepuff? Those two famous quotes are from A Very Potter Musical, which I still haven’t seen but I feel like I can use these jokes regardless. Also, HONEY BADGER DON’T GIVE A SHIT so guess what? I already knew that about myself.

Sunday morning I woke up with a headache again, which mostly had gone away by 3pm. I really don’t know what I did Sunday.

Monday I woke up at… 9:13! Class starts at… 9:00! It was the only time I have overslept like that all year! I made it to class by 9:20. My Spanish teacher told me “Buenas noches” when I arrived. Jerk. Also, I got my 8 page research paper back from Alpha and I got an A+ !

A lot of my classes are cancelled this week. One was cancelled Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, AKA every day that we have class (and next week too), one was cancelled Thursday, and another is cancelled Friday. AKA even the teachers want to go home for the summer.

Oh and for one class I have to job shadow a minimum of 6 hours, so I went to the career center and they set me up with a 2010 Drury grad who is manager of communications at a community hospital in the area, so I think that will be pretty cool. I’ll do that Friday and Wednesday.

I registered for classes and got into everything I wanted/was necessary. Spanish, “Fit for Life,” Calculus I, Sociology, and Global Futures.

Got my computer science test back, got a 46%, and the way I look at it, I’m happy it was higher than my previous all-time awesome score of 39%. That is what you call success.

Spring Breeeeak.

16 Mar

I’m posting super late/not on my day because Honey Badger doesn’t give a shit. (Thanks Cathy for the inspiration!)

Besides not having my car for 2+ weeks (And still NOT having it), this week has actually been filled with quite a bit of exciting things! For one, on Friday myself and some other students ate lunch with RAY CHEN after seeing the masterclass he gave at Jewell. The masterclass was pretty baller for one because I was like 15 feet away from a Strad Violin (they cost millions of dollars and produce amazing sounds), yeah Ray Chen uses one of those. Then Sunday was his recital at the Kauffman Center. It was sooo hoss, bros. The bad thing is that watching a performance like that just makes you want to practice a lot, which might actually be a good thing. Anyway, after the performance you can get autographs (I can feel you all judging me at this point). So I stood in line and as he was signing his name my program, he looked up and was like “Oh hey! It’s nice to see you again!” Yeah, he remembered me from when he was at Jewell. NBD. Then I got a picture taken with him (see my new profile picture on FB). Also since it was free concert, I invited my step mom and dad to go since they had been wanting to see the Kauffman Center because they had never been. The whole time we were there my dad was like “Ray Chen could be your future husband!” Totes querd. Then when the performance started and he walked out on stage my stepmom leans over and says to me “If I were younger I would totally go after him.” Also totes querd. I realize he’s a nice looking Chinese Male, but to hear that from your parents in that strange way is totally awkward! Anyway after all that fun-ness…. we went to eat at the Ameristar Casino Buffet. Aweee yeeeah.

Monday night Kendyl and I went to Morgan’s house, made milkshakes, watched 17 Again, and just chilled. Before we knew it, it was almost 3 in the morning, so we all decided it would probably be best if we went home. lol. Tuesday I went to Target. This was also the day One Direction’s album came out! And it was on sale at Target for 8 dollars!! So i bought it. It was a good investment, fo sho.

Wednesday Kendyl and I took a little road trip to CoMo to visit Lei. Pretty much the whole way down, Kendyl was quizzing me on Anatomy, specifically the muscles that move the arm. I made a wrong turn at an exit because I was trying to concentrate on finding the answer to the question she was asking me. Anyway, once we got to the Columbia area, we went to Shakespeare’s for Pizza. Nick came to visit and took some pizza from our plates. Then we went on the Mizzou Campus and Nick showed us around the Rec Center, which was freaking awesome. That took like 20ish minutes, then Nick had to go study (SURPRISE). So we wandered around campus by ourselves. We visited the quad but we were too scared that we’d look like noobs to take pictures on the Columns. So we just sat on some benches around the quad for a bit and enjoyed the nice weather and made fun of the hipsters playing Frisbee on the quad.  Then we went to get Boba at a Bubble Tea shop. I had a coffee slush boba. It was delish. It was Kendyl’s first experience with Boba, and it was interesting to watch her psych herself out about the bobas. LOL! 😀 After that we went back to Lei’s Gparent’s house, ate dinner, watched part of “Holes” then watched J. Edgar with Leo Di Caprio. That movie was interesting to say the least…. almost like Broakback Mountain, so Lei told us anyway… I haven’t seen that movie before.

Then today (technically yesterday) we went to see the Lorax. It was such a cute movie! Totally recommend it! Then after, we went back to downtown Columbia, and Kendyl and Lei made “cool story, bro. tell it again” t-shirts at a really cool “make your own t-shirt” store. I didn’t get one because my money supply isn’t very high at the moment. lol. However I will definitely be going back there to make some tees in the future. They had some previously made t-shirts hanging up on their walls. One in particular that I thought was awesome had a Hogwarts Crest and said “Hogwarts Alumni Class of 1998” tee. I want it so bad.  While we were waiting for their t-shirts to be made, we went to Sparky’s for some tasty homemade ice cream. I got Chi Tea ice cream. It was delish, fo sho. Kendyl got a Red Bull shake. I will have to try that sometime. Then we just kind of wandered around the downtown area for a little bit. We went back to Lei’s Gparent’s, ate dinner then decided that we should probably head back to Pimpdence because it looked like it was about to storm soon and it was getting dark. Driving back, Kendyl said it sounded like rain was hitting the windshield, but it was actually just bugs getting smashed by my mom’s car.

That’s all for this week, bros. Keep it real!

I forgot about my idol : bad decision

14 Mar

Hey guys, I’m alive but just barely. With a last-minute photography assignment, an edited video, a rough draft of an 8-page paper, a test, an oral presentation in Spanish, and computer science program all due at various points during the week, I’m sure you can understand why this is suprising.

The issue is, that I forgot until yesterday about the honey badger. That was a terrible decision. Yesterday I was in the computer lab working on the computer science program in the company of Rosalia (of course), a senior Indian boy, and a math grad student, and we were all talking about how crappy the week was. Then I suddenly remembered, “Honey badger don’t give a shit!” and I exclaimed it aloud, causing the grad student to laugh quite hysterically, and me to be happy because I remembered that guess what, I don’t need these grades to get into college because I’m already here. So I should quit being so uptight and be more like the honey badger.

Last week I cleaned my room a lot, knowing that Kelsey and Morgan would be here. Rachel cleaned too. I really like how the room was looking, and we maintained that cleanliness for about four days. But considering how hellish the week has been, dirty dishes are once again sitting on the sink begging to be washed out and empty boxes of food are sitting on my desk, aka the way things should be.

In case any of you have been closely following my complaints regarding Moritz’s current college situation, I have news for the latest installment. In early February, he sent all of his required documents, and a package to me, from a post office in his village. This post office just opened during January. Last week he went to ask why none of these items had arrived. The post office told him that all their international mail from the first two months had accidentally been sent to Northern Germany, where the people there didn’t know what to do with it, and did not feel responsible for sending it. Last week they realized their error, and it was all sent back on Monday so Moritz had to go in and claim everything, and resend it again. What a pain in the ass. Thankfully, they let him express-mail everything for free. Well I think those idiots owed it to him.

In less than two weeks, all of his tests will be over and I will have my boyfriend back! (Well as much as I can have him back while he’s 5,000 miles away.)

The light in our bathroom (automatic) is broken, and apparently it’s not the lightbulb but the sensor that causes it to go on. I’ve been showering in the dark and incidentally cutting my legs when I shave them. Yesterday I actually showered with the bathroom door wide open and hoped Rachel wasn’t going to come in anytime soon.

Also, today in alpha we had this freaking dumb presentation about racism. All of us were being as non-cooperative as possible so that was quite pleasing. I like to cause clash. I’m a free spirit. I do what I want.

I only have to make it two more days, and I will be home free! And I better be free because I’ve been working my ass off to get all this crap done so my professors don’t have anything to hold over me while I am in glorious bliss sleeping in my bed errday until 11:00.

I apologize if the overall tone of this post was bitter, but that’s how I am right now and I’m a very expressive person so that is probably why it came through in my writing.

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.

Living The Honey Badger Life

16 Jan

I am am living my life right  like the Honey Badger, which is my FAVORITE animal.

Honey Badgers opinion on most things: Honey Badger don’t give a shit!

This semester I am taking 14 credit Hours. Monday I only have Geology from 10-11:50 am, so far I like it allot and find most of it interesting enough to pay attention the whole time, except for the one day we discussed chemistry (I hate chemistry its the reason I am not a geology major).

Tuesday I have Sociology from 9:35-10:50, its not near as fun as Mr. Vickers class was, but its not to bad. Then I have Art appreciation from 3:35-4:50 pm, it is the most boring class ever! My Professor shows us picture after stupid picture, and she  just goes crazy over analyzing them. One picture she showed us was a bunch of random black straight lines crossing randomly over each other with a white background, and she related it to Lions chasing a water buffalo in Africa. Straight lines = Lions in Africa, hell no they don’t. (she is freaking crazy). My opinion of that class is the same as the Honey badger.

Wednesday I only have Geology again, but starting on February 27th I have Ropes Challenger course facilitator training from 4:30-7:30pm out at the lake. This class is once a week for only the second half of the semester for 3 easy a credits which I need badly (more on that later). This is the hardest climbing class they have, the whole class is about them teaching us advanced climbing skills and safety and what not. If I finish this class which I will (It was pretty much made for me), then I will be a certified climbing instructor and I will be able to get a job next year assisting with the other climbing classes.

Thursday I have Sociology and art again, but I also have Geology lab from 1-2:50 pm which so far I like.

Friday I only have Geology again.

I am on academic probation from last semester which means that to be able to attend school there next year (not sure I even want to), I have to get my whole GPA including last semesters classes above a 2.0. Last semester I had a 1.3 GPA I know I am bad student but that’s low even for me. So to get it up I cant have any F’s or D’s, I can have one C and I need some A’s. Hints why I took easy classes. Being kicked out of school is the motivation I needed because I am actually trying and paying attention in all of my classes for the first time in EVER EVER EVER.

Peace to your Pet Honey Badgers, Love to your inner Honey Badger, and Happiness to your Honey Badger thoughts!

Live A Little
