One day more.

21 Mar

One more dawn, one more day until I’m free for a whole week! Yep. Spring break is pretty much here. Actually it has kind of sort of been here all week. I’ve had the hardest time staying focused on anything academic. I’m pretty sure I took a nap every day this week, except for today since I was on campus until 6:30. And I’ve been doing laundry/packing/watching Scrubs since I got back. I hate Thursdays.

Anyway, long story short, we’re not going to Colorado. Although I was/am quite disappointed (I was really starting to miss those mountains), it’s probably for the best that I won’t be spending 20 hours on the road. Truth be told, I really need to study for the 3 tests I have the week after break. But Kendyl and I are planning on taking a short road trip one day this week, so that should relieve our road-trip craving.

Today in microbiology we were talking about allergies/hypersensitivities. This was a meme that was featured in the presentation. If only I could actually pet cats… Ai ya. 😦

Also tomorrow, Les Mis is coming out on DVD!!!!! I think that’s enough said.

Peace out!

Spring Time Happenings

14 Mar

I really can’t believe that another week is pretty much over. It’s crazy to think that I’ll soon be starting my third year of college in August. It makes me feel so old. Only 40-some-odd days left this school year!

Anyway, this week I pretty much forgot that I had to register for classes. So for like 2 days I was freaking out because I didn’t know what exactly I was supposed to be taking. Next semester I’ll have the good ole 8ams for 4 out of the 5 days. Not looking forward to that since this semester I had a lot of late classes.

Since I basically stockpiled credits this semester, I kind of ran out of things to take. I only had 3 classes I was required to take, leaving me with only 11 credits and being completely under full time. So I spent a good 2 hours or so trying to find and elective that I would be interested in. Harry Potter class was completely full, that was depressing. I thought about taking an Asian studies class, but thought… mehhh, better not. And I even thought about taking another English class, but I was like, mehhhh, not feeling like reading and writing papers. So I ended up looking at music for non-majors (go figure, right?). I actually thought about taking studio lessons for violin again but I was just thinking about how much I hate practicing, plus you have juries, blah. Not going to lie though, I kind of miss all of that, and playing in symphony with Bryan Busby.

Spring break is next week! I can’t wait!! It’s mainly because the Les Mis extended soundtrack and DVD are being released, but also because COLORADO and I get to go home. And also I’ll get to sleep in. But I will probably be studying a lot. Professors think they’re so clever putting tests the week AFTER spring break. Little do they know all other professors are doing the same.

Also, yesterday I went to an AA meeting for my nursing class. That was an interesting experience and was actually kind of eye opening. I did have to introduce myself, that was a little bit querd. But thankfully there were other students there from my class so it ended up being okay. Haha.

I hope you all had some time to get out and enjoy the nice weather today! Except if you live in Findland, or other cold areas… 😦 lol!

PS. A video for your enjoyment. I don’t know if you guys every used Boomwackers in elementary school music class… but this is pretty much an orchestra of Boomwackers!!

Better Late Than Never…

1 Mar

Hey guys.
Sorry for the delay. My life has been pretty swamped this week. Two test this week and of course I put off studying until the last minute for one test, so that meant I had to put off studying for the other test. And also I lost a lot of sleep because of it. I could probably blame these issues on the snow days throwing me off sync a little bit, but if we’re being honest, I just felt like procrastinating. And also Passion Pit/Matt & Kim concert didn’t help either. Definitely worth seeing them though!

On the topic of putting things off until last minute, I was so engrossed in studying this week that I forgot I had a paper due today at 6 until about 2:30 after I got back from class. Definitely hauled ass on that one. I spent about an hour just trying to format the paper into APA format. At Jewell we mainly used MLA. And I only ever recall using APA once in high school for anatomy. And let’s be honest, that class was pretty much a joke. I felt invincible turning it in 5:57. Living on the edge.

I’ve looked at my schedule and I pretty much have a test every week until the end of the semester (minus spring break and I think 2 random weeks w/out tests). Guess I better get used to it if I’m wanting to get into nursing school. My next test is on Tuesday. Microbiology. Gonna be a fun one to study for…

Sunday were the Oscars. And I always get pretty hyped up about those, but I was particularly hyped more so this year since my main obsession these days is Les Mis. I might or might have not teared up a bit when the whole cast sang One Day More. I was just so happy and excited! Judge me, don’t careeeeeee! It was so good! Also, I wish J-Law was my bfffffffl. Like really, she’s HILARIOUS. Who wouldn’t like to be her best friend?! Over all, I thought it was a pretty good show, if you don’t count those few awkward/bad jokes Seth Macfarlane made. PS. Sorry if I blew up your TF during the Oscars… Tweeting is sometimes my outlet for emotions. LOL.

Also this week, I was peer pressured by Kendyl into going to Colorado over spring break. But I’m not going to lie, I’m getting pretty excited about it. Although I’m not for sure how far out of my box I will go when it comes to getting on the slopes…. I’ll let you know! Haha!

Spring Break countdown: 21 days!! And I’m sure a lot of your guys’ countdown is less than that! You lucky ducks.

Peace Out!

Whoops. It’s not Thursday anymore. Haha!

I know it’s not my day technically… but since we’re all on break technically… no one has been really blogging… which is totally understandable. But I haven’t much to do right now besides listen to the Les Mis soundtrack (Saw it today. Which by the way, if you have not seen it yet and do/don’t have 3 hours to kill, DEFINITELY WORTH YOUR TIME! There’s just so many good things about it! If you go, make sure you go to the bathroom before it starts and bring some Kleenex.) and surf the internet, and obsess over Eddie Redmayne, and of course… blog!

Here’s a few pictures from my trip:

Hope everyone had some nice time with their families this Christmas season! I sure did. And I think this is the first year where I’ve REALLY started to understand that Christmas is more than those superficial values that society seems to care about, like the trees, presents, and shopping. It was the first year that I really didn’t have anything I really wanted except to be with family on Christmas.

Merry Belated Christmas! And Happy Early New Year!
