the end

10 May

Hello all!

I write this from the comfort of my own couch while watching House Hunters International on TV. I woke up at 11:30 and it’s a great feeling indeed.

My last week was pretty good, I’d say. I don’t remember much about the weekend. Monday I picked up my final photo assignment and I found out I got a 91% in the class… WTF! I was pissed because I got an A on every assignment and didn’t understand how that equated to me getting an A- in the class… That was until I re-read the syllabus and apparently you lose 15 points every time you don’t come to class (Stupid, I always got my assignments done early, so why would I come to class another 3 times for 3 hours each when I had nothing to work on?!) but anyway after I realized that I had in fact “earned it”, I wasn’t mad anymore.

I got a 97% in Multimedia (video) class. I had a final paper due for Alpha Seminar about my first year of college. We turned it in on Tuesday and our final consisted of eating pizza and having to dance out the door when we left. I’ll paste the last paragraph of my paper here because I believe it’s relevant to my “first year of college is over” post.
“With that, I am feeling a lot more confident about my next year, assuming it really does arrive in mid-August as I finally suspect that it will. I’ve learned a lot this year – a moderate amount of academic skills, and an extreme amount of oh-shit-I’m-almost-an-adult skills. All in all, I have immensely enjoyed my first year of college and it was less agonizing than expected.”

Monday I didn’t have any finals so Caitlin and I went to this cute little crepe restaurant downtown for breakfast. I had a strawberry, banana, and Nutella crepe. Yum. I began packing, but I took pictures of my room first so I would always be able to remember how it was my freshman year. I’ll post them because I know Morgan is the only one who really saw it!

Tuesday I had my Spanish final which I didn’t study much for because I had an “I don’t care” attitude. YAY!

Wednesday, after 5 hours in the library on Tuesday night (which I mostly didn’t study but instead read “Full House Reviewed,”
(which I highly recommend if you are at all familiar with the show and want to laugh)) I had my computer science final. I think I did decently.

My mom came yesterday at 2:15 and I had to check out at 4:30. We took things to the car, and then walked over to a friend’s Summit apartment so I could show my mom the set up of where I’ll be living next year. Then we went to the on campus fast food place, and we got something to eat. Too bad I still had $115 Panther Bucks left… oops!

In all, I was feeling pretty sad to leave and it was such a weird feeling! I’ll miss living in Wallace Hall… at least until I think about the boys on the floor above me who apparently decided it was time to drag their furniture around the room every night at 2:00am…

My first and last days in Wallace Hall

Today I looked online and saw that I earned a B+ in Spanish but my teacher bumped my grade to an A-! I posted a twitter status about it saying “A- in Spanish, heck yeah!” until I saw that another girl in my Spanish class had posted “B in Spanish, so happy!” 27 minutes before me, so I thought that was in bad taste and deleted mine. At 3 today I went to UpDog and filled out my tax forms… I start Monday! Can’t wait 🙂

I hope to see you guys soon!

thank goodness for dryer sheets

25 Apr

Not gonna lie – it’s a little difficult to type right now, on account of all the shit that is on top of my desk. By the way, I cleaned it on Sunday. Yes, it’s messy again. I would attribute this to the fact that I have about 0 motivation right now.

Seriously all I want to do is sleep. Went to bed on Monday night at 10:30 pm, woke up for class at 7:30 am, decided 9 hours was not enough, proceeded to go back to sleep until 10:30 and not go to class… and was tired all day. Wanted to go back to bed by 6:30.

My week has not been terribly eventful. Friday I job shadowed a really nice lady named Andrea, 2010 Drury grad (holla) which was fun and made me feel like I might actually know what I want to major in. Her job seemed really awesome. Friday night, Caitlin and I ordered pizza and made fudge and watched a movie. Saturday I slept in of course.

Then Saturday night I went downtown to a sketchy looking theater where my roommate was in a play called Enron, which is about an accounting scandal. Caitlin came too, because she is an accounting major and she helped tell me what was happening. That theater reminded me of the Tower of Terror haunted hotel at Disney World, we even had to take a creepy elevator to the fourth floor and everything was covered in ancient wallpaper. During the play, Clayton Worley (old debate partner) texted me to tell me that he wanted to date the Mallinsons’ German exchange student, Lisa… he wanted advice. Lolcatz.

After the play is when it gets interesting. There is a senior in my computer science class who is Indian and we are really good friends. He apparently throws really good parties (like so good the cops almost always get called), but I had never gone to one. He was having his last one on Saturday, and I got invited via private Facebook event, so I decided to go with Kayla because she’s on the party scene so I figured it wouldn’t be awkward. Well, I met up with her around 11:30 and she was with this Filipino guy who is apparently a swimmer, and she said “I’ve been at the swimmer party, let’s go back there for a while first.” So I was like, okay. We went back and she gave me something to drink in the ever-famous Red Solo Cup (it was Kool-aid and something else) but it tasted fine, and I was kind of like you know what, YOLO. It was super awkward and crowded at this party, and as soon as the clock struck 12, all the guys took off their shirts. I was kind of weirded out. At about 12:30 she said we could go to Anish’s and I was like okay!

We got to Anish’s house, which was like 100 yards away, and the atmosphere was way different. First, it was a house so it had a kitchen, with probably at least 50 bottles of different alcohol on the counter, and a living room with big stereos where everyone was dancing. There was also a blacklight and my dress looked super cool in it. I was way more comfortable at this party. Kayla was mostly paying attention to this Filipino guy so I wandered around and found… my roommate! Neither of us really parties so it was unexpected for us to see each other there. Kayla disappeared without telling me she was leaving but I didn’t really care because I knew more people there. After a while I wandered through the kitchen and Anish was there and told this guy who was apparently the drink mixer to make some shots for us. I trusted Anish enough to figure it wouldn’t be spiked with roofies. So anyway, I think mine was mostly Mountain Dew. I mean that was good, I definitely wasn’t drunk and honestly I don’t think anything I drank had any effect on me at all. Except I danced on a coffee table, but I promise it wasn’t as weird as it sounded. Everyone took turns doing it. Also, at one point I used the bathroom and there was no toilet paper, but the washer and dryer were in the bathroom and there were dryer sheets on the floor, so guess what I used? Tmi?

Around 2:30 the stereo overheated and I started talking to this other Indian guy who offered to walk me home so he did. And I thought he wanted to ask for my number so I asked if he had facebook and 10 minutes after I got inside, I had a friend request. Awks. I just accepted him yesterday because I figured two days was okay to wait, and today he messaged me “heyy” and I don’t think I’ll respond.

Overall, I had a really good time and I think this is something I will want to do more often next year. You just have to find the right environment. Too bad Anish is graduating.

In other news, Caitlin and I are going to Independence this weekend because Becky has prom and so I was planning to go home and Caitlin wanted to come with me. Also, my mom made me a last-minute dentist appointment because two of my teeth have felt uncharacteristically rough in the back and I am kind of paranoid about it and can’t wait a whole 3 weeks until my 6 month checkup. Good dental hygiene is muy importante.

I made a video about mustaches. I’ll enable you guys to watch it because it’s protected; I didn’t want to embarrass the people who are in it. Hahaha.

Enough of my rambling.

We’re almost done, dawgs.
