Batteries Not Included

13 Feb

Sunday night (aka the early hours of Monday)

12:35 am – get into bed and turn out the lights

12:36 am – set alarms

12:37 am – close eyes and try to fall asleep

12:42 am – hear a loud beep in the hallway… and another 30 seconds later… and another…

12:43 am – realize it’s the smoke detector

12:44-12:45 am – hope it will stop on its own

12:46 am – go out into hallway to talk to Caitlin about what to do

12:47 am – decide to call the CA (like an RA but for apartment housing)

12:48 am – security picks up the phone and says they will be right over

12:49 am – change into more appropriate clothing in which to greet security

12:52 am – security arrives

security: the battery needs replaced

me: we know that

security: do you have a 9-volt battery?

me: uh, no?

security: well, we can’t do anything for you

me: so we’re just supposed to let this beep all night?

security: well, unless you have a 9-volt battery…

me: well I already said that we don’t

security: well, you could go to wal-mart, they’re still open…

me (kind of pissed): alright bye

12:55 am – security leaves

12:56 am – me and Caitlin stare at each other

1:05 am – me and Caitlin drive to the nearest gas station to buy said battery

1:18 am – we return home

1:28 am – I finally figure out how to replace the stupid battery

1:30 am – I finally go to bed, peacefully and sans beeping noise

This just made me really pissy because that was not the first time that one of our smoke detectors had done that this year, and the other two times we were not required to provide the battery. @DUprobz.

P.S. Yesterday I overslept by 3 hours. Oops. I had class at 9:30, 11:00, and 12:00, and I woke up at 11:09. Shit. I left my apartment at 11:22, with makeup on and decent clothes and looking overall  presentable, which I’m pretty proud of.

P.P.S. OF MONSTERS AND MEN!!!

Crappy Day

23 Feb

Hey broskis. What up.
Today has probably been one of the worst days of college so far. For one I got minimal amount of sleep because I procrastinated my annotated bibliographies. I thought it was going to take like a couple hours tops. But I was wrong. I finally left the union around 4am. Then I had to study for my anatomy lab test, which was at 7:45 this morning. So after getting back from the union I studied a bit in our hall lounge, took a little nap, woke up and studied for like 20 mins before class, then went to class. It was a really grand night. Then after my anatomy test, which consisted of knowing the axial and appendicular skeletons, as well as viewing slides of tissues (which for the most part looked like pink blobs under the microscope), I decided to get some decent sleep before my 12:25 class. Well I overslept my alarm and I woke up at 1:30. I absolutely HATE skipping class, unless it is absolutely necessary (ie: the winter x-games). Maybe that’s the Asian-ness of me. But I had a choice of words I said to myself when I realized that I missed class. THEN… Kendyl and I decided to go to lunch and once we got to the Union I realize that my ID is missing from my lanyard. So then I had another choice of words I said to myself. Luckily my ID fell out of my pocked outside the union so I didn’t have to search long for it.

In happier news, Saturday I played in my first symphony orchestra concert. BRYAN BUSBY WAS THERE AND SAT LIKE 5 FEET BEHIND ME. It was kind of awesome. OH! And after the first half (the half that I played in) at intermission, I was walking backstage, and because it was dark and couldn’t see much of anything, I kicked a case of some instrument, AND almost ran in to Bryan Busby. That’s right, I almost ran in to BRYAN BUSBY. I was like “Oops, I’m sorry” then he was like “Oh you’re fine!” NBD, bro, I almost ran into Bryan Busby. But anyway it was a nice concert because most of my family was there to see me. And most of my hall came and surprised me with flowers. Anyway, the orchestra as a whole did pretty awesome, me on the other hand…. lol. Our next concert is in 6 days. I’m actually kind of excited for it, because for one the music is super cool and is somewhat more manageable for me to play, and we’re playing Two Door Cinema Club, which some music major here arranged for orchestra. But there’s no professional musicians in this concert, it’s just all Jewell Strings, so that will be a bit interesting…

Yesterday I went to my first Ash Wednesday service, and it was interesting because they did the ash cross thing on the forehead of everyone. And my friends and I that went weren’t sure if there was like etiquette for it, like when it’s okay to wash it off. (pretty sure mine just rubbed off eventually) Tonight most of our hall is going to see a free screening of 21 Jump Street. I can’t go however because I have a bible study, which I’m actually looking forward to. And Kendyl has to work in the Library. Oh and yesterday I actually applied for a position at Jackson County Parks and Rec for the summer. Hopefully I’m not too late…. I really need one of those job things… Sorority life is really making me dirt poor.
That’s it for now borskis. Peace out girl scouts.

PS. Idk if you saw this on my FB… But it’s creepy and quite hilarious.

Whoops….

22 Jan

So it’s 6:30pm and I almost forgot to blog about my life. I know, I know this would have been awful. Here goes…..
Monday- No class, so I slept late and watched movies I think (I can’t remember, this was a whole week ago…).
Tuesday- Longest day if the week. I have Geology lab from 9:30 to noon, Geology lecture from 12:30 to 2 and Biology lab from 7 to 9:50pm. This leaves no time for lunch, and no time fo fun after a long day of science. Both these sciences are on totally different ends of the spectrum, so it is not similar and I cry a lot.
Wednesday- Class all day, literally. I start at 10am and don’t end until 9pm
Thursday- I have Geology lecture and that is all folks! Again, Thursdays are my favorite day of the week. I sleep late(ish) and I have plenty of time to nap. This week I went to Navigators which is a Christian group on campus. They are actually pretty well-known for their Bible studies and stuff. You should look them up if you have the time, I don’t have time to add a link because if I took the time to figure it out this would not be posted until Monday and I might be tar-and-feathered.
Friday- Class, ending at 3:20. This friday I did laundry which has been piling up for two weeks, but it was all finished in two hours! Success. Then right before class I got to go to Starbucks which was the second highlight of the week. The best thing that happened this week was in Multicultural Studies; we watched a movie! Kevin Costner is in it, and during the glorious movie my professer fell asleep!
WEEKEND- I spent it with Kendal. She lives in Lawrenson which is the tallest building from Denver to Cheyenne, Wyoming. From her windows I can actually see MOUNTAINS! (plus she has a kitchen and really nice roommates) Oh and I went to church and am in a Bible study group if there is one that doesn’t conflict with my ridiculous schedule.
This has been a hectic week and there is so much going on that I can’t tell you all of it. Sorry for this bland post but I am wiped out, but alas, my week starts again in approximately 12 hours…. no time for rest.
Oh and did I mention, I applied for 2 jobs. Hobby Lobby and Sky Blu (a frozen yogurt place). Wish me luck on actually getting a job.
I need sleep…

and a milkshake.
