Lists

29 Oct

I have written 6 speeches in the last 6 weeks for my public speaking class, which has led me to hate doing anything in an essay, speech, or story format. So I am going to stick with a list again because lists make me happy. So I give you my last to weeks in a randomly organized list

I have been to 2 concerts and seen 5 bands in the last 2 weeks. All the bands were awesome but Watsky and The Naked and Famous blew my mind.

The bands I saw ranked in order of Awesomeness

  1. Watsky
  2. The Naked and Famous
  3. Portugal The man
  4. Tie Between The Crystal fighter and The 1975

I started binge watching Weeds on Kendyls recommendation, and I am hooked on it. I watched almost 10 straight episodes today just because why not. From the time I have spent watching Weeds and Breaking Bad I am pretty sure I could be a highly successful drug dealer. Just saying. I have learned a lot about the business.

I started riding my BMX bike again instead of my mountain bike. I used to ride BMX back in middle school and although I was pretty good I never liked competing and I quit after a bad wreck. I might start racing soon if I can get in shape and see where it takes me. I still don’t know what to do with my life and along with a hundred other careers I have considered I might as well take a shot at BMX Racing.

This week I heavily considered choosing photography as a major. I think it would be awesome to be a freelance photographer who gets to travel the world documenting their journey. However although I like photography I dislike being told what to photograph so that thought may not go anywhere.

I had fast food every day last week. I am not bragging about this and I am disappointed in myself for it because I have been making an effort (a very poor one) at eating healthier mainly because diabetes doesn’t seem like much fun and that is likely where I am headed if I continue to only eat things that are fried, microwaved  or full of sugar.

This was has been the first week in over a year and after 2 knee surgeries that I haven’t had any pain or swelling in my right knee. To celebrate this I sprained my right ankle while walking down some stairs in darkness when I stepped on badly place tennis ball and fell down the rest of the stairs.

I still have a 100% in math. I am not sure how and I am very baffled by the fact that after years of failing math in high school all I ever had to do was try. I no longer have a 100% in Public Speaking buts that’s okay because I hate that class with a passion, and I look forward to torching all my speeches at the end of the semester.

I have been donating plasma twice a week for the last 4 weeks, and with some of my money from donating plasma I bought new clothes for the first time in I don’t know how long. I am way more excited about new clothes than any male should ever be.

I badly want to go surfing, I have never surfed before but it is one of the few remaining board sports I haven’t learned and I have always wanted to do it.

I am Amped for the 3 trips we have planned over the next several months. First Europe in less than one month, than Colorado in December, and last our great American road trip to the west coast next summer. I know they will all be wild and fun trips.

Peace, Love, and Happiness

Rest in Pieces Venus Flytrap.

17 Sep

The last couple weeks have gone by incredibly fast, probably due to the fact that I have Zero free time.

My weekly schedule looks something like this:

Monday:

8:00-8:50 Physiology (when I choose to get out of bed)

9:00-9:50 Math (where I spend 50 minutes trying to figure out what the hell my teacher is saying)

11:00-3:00 Work in the library (shelvin’ books makin’ paper)

3:30-4:45 Health Science 4300 (where I use every ounce of energy I have to try and stay awake, but usually fail)

Then I get home and due homework until I go to sleep.

Tuesday:

Tuesday is Mecca. Except for the fact that Tuesday has become do a F ton of homework day. Either way I still get to sleep in 😉

Wednesday: The same as Monday.

Thursday:

8:30-11:30 Physiology lab (where we do the lab in 5 minutes, but spend 2 hours deciphering what the background information means)

12:00-2:00 Work in the library

Then go home and do homework.

Friday:

8:00-8:50 Physiology

9:00-9:50 Math

Then right after drive to blue springs.

12:00-6:00 Work at the marina

I also work 8 hours on Saturday and Sunday, but at least I have a little free time. Even though it makes my life crazy, I really like going home on the weekends because I get to spend time with mi familia. On Sundays we always go over to my Grandma’s house with my aunts, uncles, and cousins and eat dinner, which is nice. This week we found six kittens living under the ramp in her front yard (brb dying because of the cuteness).

The other day I had a dream that I was bald on half of my head and some of my friends from Jewell were in it. I had remembered from the movie The Giant Mechanical Man (which is really good) that Jenna Fischer’s character had dreams about losing her teeth so I figured those probably had similar meanings. Anyway, basically what my dream is telling me is that I don’t have any idea of what I’m doing with my life, which is pretty accurate.

I think Derek and I have had very similar thought processes when thinking about what we want to do with our lives, except mine involve less action sports and more cupcakes. Right now I am considering becoming an Au Pair after I graduate, but I seem to change my mind every 3 days, so we’ll see if this actually sticks.

Keep it Classy.

P.S. Sorry for this insanely boring post.

P.P.S. My Venus flytrap is almost completely dead and I don’t understand because I water it all the time. I am very distraught about this.

P.P.P.S. I have been listening to a lot of San Cisco lately and I really like the song Wetsuit by the Vaccines. You should check them out.

Of Monsters and Men

1 Jun

On may 21st Me, Megan, Kendyl, and Cathy went to the Of Monsters and Men Concert at Crossroads in downtown Kansas City, Mo.

We met the Band

While walking to the concert venue we spotted the band playing basketball in the street and got a picture, and Kendyl touched them ^

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!!

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.

-Kendyl

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.
