Here We GO

6 May

I love Snapchat. And I really love seeing the beautifully awkward faces of my friends for a few moments, it really brightens my day.

Finals are in full swing. Holy Moly! The stress level I am at right now is probably not healthy. Also, the amount of caffeine I have consumed and will consume by the end of this week will not be healthy. My eyes are already doing funny things and I haven’t been looking at a computer screen, I’ve been reading essays like it was my job. It’s awful. I hate English so so much. I am so bad at it and I hate it. I hate English. I will be done with this class on Tuesday morning, so only  a solid 24 hours of working on this portfolio and I’m done. However, I have to study for my cumulative Meteorology exam that is Monday afternoon while finishing this portfolio. I’ll bet you $4 that cumulative is the worst word you can hear the week before finals.

On a completely different note: I have a gnarly sunburn on my legs. It looked almost purple yesterday and is still radiating heat. It’s great… but no worries, I can wear shorts here because it’s warm and don’t have to worry about jeans rubbing up against my legs. Also, I noticed I only have tight pants- not fun with a sunburn y’all.

Well I better stop my study break and get back to it! Can’t wait to see you all soon, and in one piece.

Let’s Roll

11 Feb

Things to accomplish this week:

  • Find a house
  • Send out my Valentines
  • Call my parents (haven’t talked to them in awhile land I need more help in house hunting- its scary)
  • Write my “This I Believe” essay (Do you all remember doing this in Thompson’s class?)
  • Finish hanging all my photos and postcards
  • homework
  • Study with (cute) boy for a Meteorology test on Thursday
  • Analyze two post-modern picture books
  • Find a math tutor
  • Meet with my English professor

Yeah, so, let’s not forget I still need to go to class and do everyday homework and go to Bible Study and prep and execute a Valentine’s Day party and hopefully go to the gym to release some stress. Let the week begin! ….well right after I catch up on Glee and The Bachelor… I know, I’ve got my priorities straight!

So, if you all see me on facebook or pinterest or twitter or whatever, yell at me to get back to my list! I’m going to need help staying focused this week.

p.s. I wish I would have written my This I Believe essay in high school…. because then I wouldn’t have to work so hard on it now. I am having so much trouble finding the one thing I believe in and writing about it, plus I am super scared to go into class and have my peers edit it- especially because most of them won’t agree with what I have written so far! -Tangent- One kid wrote about how they believe that going to college and following society’s view of how the world works is stupid and that no one should be an art major- um hello! You are in college right now! Sorry to burst your bubble.

p.p.s I hope you all have a fun Valentine’s Day, but more importantly, that your Ash Wednesday is even better!

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?
