TWO DAYS, PEOPLE. TWO DAYS.

20 Nov

TWO DAYS!! I’M SO EXCITED!! I’m excited to see double decker buses, hear actual British accents in their environment, eat fish&chips, go to Hogwarts, ride the tube, be reunited with Cathy, and for everything else!! If I see any famous British celebrities, I will probably die of happiness. But hopefully I get a picture with them first.

This past weekend was a hit and miss. I was very excited to hang out with my friends before we leave the states, and for the most part it was great and I had a great time! But every party has a pooper, and we didn’t realize it until after it was over. I have never been more grateful for my friends that are always there for me (even when some are not physically near me!). Special shout out to 2 specific bros. I’m so sorry for putting you guys in that situation. I cannot imagine how horrific those hours must have been. :/

I spent the next few days going through phases of frustration, disappointment, depression, denial, and rage. Sunday night, with some convincing from Emily, I spent 2 hours writing letter calling him out before bed. Monday I went through a spell of complete rage and had to get out of Columbia. I sped down to Jeff City with the windows down and Lorde’s album blaring through the stereo. It was a nice day so I decided to walk around the area for a bit. When I got back, I spent another 2ish hours revising the letter. Then I spent an hour trying to convince myself that the best thing to do was to push send. Eventually I did. It felt so good to tell someone how I really felt instead of bottling it up and letting it eventually eat me alive, which is what I normally do. Please just be honest and don’t be a total douche, that’s all I ask. I feel like I’m doing better now, but still a little hurt.

Sunday was the last time I got to work in the deli at HV. The reason I got to work there in the first place was because they were in the process of getting a new manager (who makes the schedule for the department) so the HR manager was in charge of scheduling. She also makes the cashier/courtesy schedules too, so she was able to get me in on a few shifts. But since they have a manager now, I probably won’t be scheduled anymore. Anyway, I used the slicer so many times, and all by myself! I’m pretty much a pro now. Also I got to work with Goron. His family is from Serbia (meaning he’s a fan of Djokovic, better than Nadal I say) but pretty sure he’s 100% American. He reminds me of Nathan from the marina. Their personalities are the same, meaning they both like beer, like to party, are semi-racist/sexist, and always make fun of me for being Asian/short/”sucking at my job”/etc., and he’s a pretty funny guy. I’m going to miss the deli.

Today I worked at HV again. The worst part of today was having to get carts… IN THE RAIN. Plus it was freezing and I could see my breath. It was not cool. Also the dining room was short of bussers, so I spent 2 hours bussing tables. That was interesting. And I ate lunch with my cousin, J, since we both happened to take our breaks at the same time. It was nice to catch up, even though it was a bit querd. LOL. I work again tomorrow, but I’m not sure if I would have time to blog since we’re going home after I get off work, thus me blogging today. Then Friday, we’ll be going to the airport… TO GO TO LONDON. WHAT!!?!! Can’t believe pretty much here! Dang… that means I have to pack.

Peace out, girl scouts.

PS. Sorry for this extremely long post. I guess I had more to say than I thought! Props if you made it to the end! 🙂

My most random class this semester is Meteorology. It’s great. My professor graduated from some place in Iowa with a degree in something like Precipitation Analysis. I don’t know how that is a degree or really when it would be useful, I mean, when it’s raining I already know that. I don’t need someone to analyze it for me. But to each their own. Anyways, she is the woman version of Ben Stein in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, but instead of economics, it’s meteorology. Quick tip; if you can’t be excited about weather then neither can I.

I’m not just taking Meteorology, I have 16 hours this semester and one class that is zero hours. My plate is full. Going into this semester I was excited and ready to start my newest adventure of being an elementary education major, full throttle. I signed up for the funnest classes; Performing and Visual Arts Integration, Literature for Children, Adolescence, and Young Adults, and Numbers and Operations (some of the titles aren’t fun. In reality I’m taking an art class, a reading class that looks at picture books, and a math class that deals with counting to multiplication and division). So I didn’t think I would feel like a dog constantly chasing its tail, running in circles non stop with no end coming any closer. And it’s only week three. Oy.

Side note: I think I have dyslexia or something because half of the notes I take are misspelled so bad that I can hardly read them. But this is just a self diagnosis.

Now also begins house hunting! I am ready to live in a house off campus. I do see the plus side to being an upperclassman on campus, the community you surround yourself with will continue to build and networking is very accessible. But, I have a pretty big community now that I am involved in teaching courses and Navigators and have kept up with my unique group of friends from freshman year. It’s time to move on, up, and out.

With all these very important things filling up my time, I have found it hard to focus on the littlest but the most important things. Like reading my Bible, writing letters, and staying in touch with you. So, I’m sorry. If I go another week without any of these things, my life will only get more stressful and blurry. I need to take more time refocussing on what’s really important. Yes, I’m here for school, but without my support from home and my relationship with Christ where will my education take me?
