This weekend is gonna be awesome

5 Feb

Not much too exciting has been going on this week. I wish I had gotten two snow days like Mizzou and every other school in the state yesterday so I could have had schwartzed Monday and Tuesday. Anyway, I went to school in the middle of the blizzard and even skipped lunch so I could just stay in the Comm building during the 1-hour gap between my classes and not go outside.

I’ve been pretty preoccupied lately with trying to find an internship for the summer. Preferably paid. I want to work almost full time and make monies too. I have to interview and write a profile of a Comm Department grad that works at a company in KC as a social media analyst, which I think would be pretty cool to do. I think they have some internships too, so I’m going to stop there and do my interview in person before I come home on Friday afternoon! I got the LinkedIn app last night which I’m pretty sure makes me officially an old lame person but I just really really want some experience somewhere. Hanna and I unwisely stayed up entirely way too late the other night searching for internships.

The only other thing I’ve been doing is trying to keep up on homework. I have a lot of ideas flowing for my website for Web Comm and I spent about 6 hours this weekend in the Mac lab on photoshop, drawing a header image of Tower Bridge. My assignment for Friday is to write a sample post for my blog, so I did that! I bought the domain name and my blog is going to be changing a lot over the next few weeks as I learn how to design it how I want, but if you ever want to read it, here’s the link. http://www.madaboutlondonguide.com. Super basic right now! Also I need to do some reading for Spanish (when it’s an independent study, you can’t get away with not doing the reading). Usually it’s out of our textbook which is in Spanish so it takes about 30-45 minutes to read… he told me the one for tomorrow would be in English, so that made me excited, but I just pulled it up and it’s 36 pages. Yeah.

GETTING SO SO EXCITED FOR THIS WEEKEND. WOMBIES + DEREK TAKE KC AWW YEAH. 12 hour saga here we come. Gonna try to motivate myself to do some extra homework tonight so maybe I can go shopping tomorrow weeeeeeee

Feelin’ like a creep

13 Nov

Hi everyone, guess what? Only TEN DAYS until I see your beautiful faces! I’m so excited!

This weekend, I’m going to Prague (which is in the Czech Republic). There are 10 of us going. 9 of us are people that like each other and are good friends. 1 of us is someone that we’re not really sure why she’s going, and 2 of us have very strong feelings against this 1, so we will see how that goes. I don’t know a lot about Prague but I’ve heard it is really beautiful and I am excited to go to another new country!

Luckily, my hard week of papers (which was last week) is over so I’ve celebrated by not really doing anything, which is okay because I don’t really have to. Out of the past 7 nights, 3 have involved things for my theater class and 2 have involved large quantities of alcohol.

Speaking of theater, I fell in love with a play that I saw last night, the Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time, and I wrote more about it at my other blog if you want to check that out in a while!

In other news, my International Relations class has turned into “Read Articles On Your Phone About The Kansas City Chiefs And Their Prospects Of Beating The Denver Broncos, But Don’t Let Your Teacher Notice You’re On Your Phone The Whole Time” class. Needless to say, that’s a lot more fun than trying to learn about something that your teacher doesn’t even know how to explain.

Today I went to Oxford Street to make some videos of social interactions between people. I had to do it for my Interpersonal Communication class, which I actually pay attention in because 1) it’s interesting; 2) it’s easy, and 3) my teacher is not a dimwit. I had to creepily try to film people while they talked or whatever, hoping they would do things such as gesture, scratch their nose, or show facial expressions, so I can make a presentation for my class and explain their illustrators, self-adaptors, and affect displays, respectively. It was super weird and it’s impossible to hold your phone in a way where it looks like you’re texting but you can still get a good video. I felt like everyone knew I was filming as I pointed my phone at them. Also, every store on Oxford Street is huge and has security and personnel around every corner, probably to look out for creepy people like me. Eventually I stood in a mall and filmed a mother and her adult daughter having some food and talking.

I can’t believe that when I get back from Prague, there will only be 5 days until you guys are here! I better start getting my projects done so they won’t be a problem once you get here!

I miss you all!

Fall Break… Kind of.

30 Oct

Well it turns out that Mizzou doesn’t have a Fall break so I just had to create my own by just not going back to school.

Friday night was the free Imagine Dragons concert for homecoming week and it was off the chain. My ears continued to ring for two days so I think that tells you how awesome it was.

I drove home after the concert so I could watch Tristan run in his sectionals race the next morning. He got 19th place so he gets to go to state in Jeff city this weekend!

While I was home I my mom took me shopping and I was finally able to go to Forever 21 (it had been much too long) and we went to Costco so I could get an ice cream bar (if you haven’t had one from the food court there, trust me it will change your life).

I was planning on going back Sunday night, but then I learned that Tristan’s cross country banquet was on Tuesday and there would be fried chicken and mashed potatoes, so I weighed my options and clearly skipping class on Monday was the best choice.

I register for classes tomorrow so I have my classes picked out and I’m planning on taking chemistry, Bio lab, health sciences 1000 and 3300, Political Science, and Greek mythology.

I’m really lacking motivation currently, so this is all I got.

Keep it Classy.

P.S. I found out today that Of Monsters and Men are coming to Kansas City for the Night the Buzz stole Christmas, but I won’t be here, so that’s unfortunate.

Also, the only followers we have on twitter are all of us and Tristan. It’s kind of pitiful.

Gas Problems

25 Jan

Hello world! (That’s a computer science joke, Google it if you’re confused.) Hard to believe it’s Wednesday already because I’ve been a day off this whole week so by now I think it should be Thursday.

The end of the last school week wasn’t too eventful; Friday after my 11:00 class ended, I headed home, though I would have liked to have left at 12, I decided to be responsible and wash my dishes and fold my clothes. These were tasks that I had been avoiding for at least 2 days though so I guess it wasn’t so much me taking initiative as it was me doing what was absolutely necessary at the time. So after all was said and done, I ended up leaving around 1.

Why was I going home you ask? I shall answer. BECAUSE OF THE JACK’S MANNEQUIN CONCERT!!!! I got two tickets for my birthday from my parents. I drove home, and passed my 2nd Amish person that I have seen on my journeys home and back to school. You would think that I would see more. There are a ton of “Share the Road” signs, and I’ve gone home like 6 or 7 times total so the chances are pretty high. I was listening to my Jack’s Mannequin CD that I burned myself, but it doesn’t have a case so it got pretty scratched and soon I had to put in the real life CD of theirs that just came out in October. I got home around 4, got ready, and left around 5:15 to go to Kelsey’s. We went to Fazoli’s and then to Kansas City for the concert.

It was at the Beaumont Club in Westport. We brought in our coats but it was hot in the place, and pretty small. We got big red X’s on our hands and paid a $2 fee for being minors. I still have the X’s on my hands. I didn’t want to hold my coat so I found a railing against a wall with a sign over and and wrapped my coat around the railing and covered it with the sign again. Good decision all around. The concert was supposed to start at 7:30 but of course there were opening acts. The first one was some hipster named Allen Stone who bears a striking resemblance to Rees Purdom and also seemed to share the same affinity for unique outfits. He was on for like 30 minutes and by this point I was booing him. Then another band called Jukebox the Ghost (which Kelsey kept calling Jukebox the Swamp) came on and they were all right but I was like come on I just want to see Jack’s Mannequin.

Around 9:30, they finally came on. Andrew McMahon. ❤ They opened up with my favorite song, The Mixed Tape. Here’s a video that was uploaded by someone incompetent who only managed to get it starting halfway through. Not much to choose from on YouTube when it’s only been 5 days since the concert.

At one point someone threw their beer up in the air and we all got wet and I thought it was a special effect. Nope. Anyway, that was my first concert and it was super fun. I love how you can hear the crowd singing in that video. Usually it’s just me singing alone in the car on 3 hour commutes. I have to go see them again. One of my top 10 favorite things that I’ve ever done.

The only other noteworthy occurrence of the past week was when I was filling up my car before heading back to school on Sunday. I had pushed down the little handle on the gas pump so I wouldn’t have to hold it, and a while later gas is coming out of the gas tank and I took out the handle and that thing was still shooting gas out all over the place like a hose. So we probably lost like a gallon of gas and it went to the pavement. Some homie at the car in front of me started talking to me and said I should go tell the people inside. Well duh. So I went in and it was Jake Douthat working, which was awkward because remember the time when we went on a date and he threw up? Well I went back to my car and the homie said “nice to meet you” as if we had a real conversation and I called my dad to make sure my car wasn’t going to blow up. He said no.

And on the way back to school I saw my THIRD Amish person.
