Short Post, Yo.

5 Sep

Alright guys, I’m going to make this short and sweet because I have a lot of other stuff I need to be doing.

Labor Day weekend was pretty much the worst because I basically worked all weekend, which will be nice on my wallet. Me, Kendyl and Derek also went to Santa Cali Gon on Saturday for like 30 minutes because there were way too many people there… and it was also super hot. Unfortunately I did not get my chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwich because apparently their booth moved?!! But we did get to see some clay flowers so that was nice.  

This week I turned in my nursing application. That’s 1/3 of the process. Next is the nursing interview, which is next Friday. AHHHHH!!! Yesterday I had a mock nursing interview and it went pretty well. The interviewer said that I did really well, so that gives me a little bit of a confidence boost, but I still need to practice practice practice! Also yesterday I bought tickets to 965’s Halloweenie Roast. I’m super excited to see The Naked and the Famous and The 1975. Derek is coming with and maybe Kendyl…??!! But other than that, nothing that exciting has been happening, except for me studying/doing homework/napping a lot. Next week I have three tests and of course the nursing interview and I will hopefully be orientated at Hy-Vee by then. Hopefully.

Also this week, I finally got a belated birthday card from my cousin in the mail. It was a One Direction card that folds out to be a mini One Direction poster. She’s the greatest.

Peace out, girl scouts.

PS. If Tristan doesn’t start blogging, I’m going to take Wednesdays, because Thursdays are usually a little bit busier for me compared to Wednesdays.

Omelets, Work, and One Direction

29 Aug

Well there’s probably a list of about 15 things I should be doing right now, but I’m for sure not doing any of them. So that’s that.

This week has been pretty mediocre for the most part. I worked what seemed to be like a million hours this weekend. Call me crazy, yes, but my paycheck will be so awesome, hopefully. And this weekend I’m doing it all over again.

Yesterday I attempted to cook (something other than ramen, cookies or pancakes from the box) for myself for the first time ever in my life. I made tomato, green pepper, and cheese omelets. And they turned out pretty tasty! I had actually YouTubed videos on how to cook omelets before hand. HAHA. But I’m not going to lie, I did have a slight fear I was going to burn down our apartment complex. Luckily that did not happen.  I’m going to try to cook more this often this semester, but we’ll see how that actually turns out. Anyway here’s the end result of one of the omelets. Not the greatest looking omelet, but my tummy was happy!

T-minus 5 days until the most important day thus far in my life. I am so so so so so nervous and ridiculously stressed. I’ve revised my résumé pretty much every day this week, and I had the tutoring center look over it every day as well. After we turn in applications, there’s one week until interviews. Then the following week we will know if we made it in or not. It’s all happening so fast, and I just keep freaking out and stressing out. AHHHH!

Also the One Direction movie comes out tomorrow and I probably won’t get to see it without having to pay 9 dollars because of my work schedule. That’s depressing. I mean I love One Direction, but I’m not rich enough to love them for 9-13 dollars. You know what I mean? Does that sound bad?

And also SANTACALIGON! “Clay flowers, all flowers made of clay.” And chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwiches. I can’t wait.

That’s all I got for this week.
Have a relaxing Labor Day weekend!

PS. If you haven’t seen the trailer for One Direction’s movie, shame on you.

T-Minus ONE DAY.

15 Nov

Yep that’s right. Thanksgiving break is just around the corner. And I’m sooo excited to go home for a whole week! I’ve been counting down the days for awhile now… But to be completely honest I feel like it came out of no where. Time goes by so fast these days. And it’s just two more weeks after we get back until it’s Christmas Break. Can’t believe I’m been at Mizzou for a semester already. CRAZY. But I’m so glad it’s almost over.

This week I found out I’m going to Arizona for the first week of break with my dad and step-mom. We had discussed taking a vacation when I had gone home 2 weeks ago since my dad didn’t get to go with us to Hogwarts (Orlando, FL actually. But it might as well been Hogwarts. Sounds cooler anyway). The first destination my dad suggested was ENGLAND (AHHHHHH!!!!!). But that got shot down because my step-mom doesn’t like cold weather… Pissed. I was so devastated (and I still am devastated). I probably could have cried. Legit. I’ll make it there eventually. Hopefully. Then they were looking a cruises. Not sure what happened there though… I would have been fine with that! Anyway, I’m pretty excited about the trip though because I’ve ever been to AZ.

Also, One Direction’s Take Me Home CD came out yesterday. I will say I really didn’t care for it when I first listened to it. But some of the songs are catchy. It’s pretty great! 245 DAYS UNTIL THE CONCERT. Can’t wait.

Lastly, I found this video of an 6 year old Asian piano prodigy on Ellen. I’m showing you because I understand everything they’re saying!! It’s the Chinese I can actually understand and know how to speak!! Plus the kid’s pretty good.

Free Shirts and Shit.

20 Sep

Yesterday was Fire Factor, it’s basically a fire safety demo. They literally lit a make-shift dorm room on fire to show you how fast a fire can spread. Afterwards there were free t-shirts and Shakespeare’s Pizza if you filled out a survey. We skipped class for that (I justified it because I had just taken 2 tests back-to-back). That’s my YOLO this week. Livin’ big, I know. Once I heard it was Shakespeare’s Pizza, that sealed the deal for skipping class. Haha! Before the fire thing, we got another free t-shirt and pizza from the Arts and Science Fall Welcome. Then there was a booth in front of the Union that was handing out t-shirts for registering to vote. We had already registered, but we asked if we could have a t-shirt anyway. Hello t-shirt #3 for the day. Also since yesterday was “international talk like a pirate day” they were giving out pirate’s booty snacks and those chocolate coins. Delish.

Tomorrow there’s a girls soccer game. The first 500 people in get free t-shirts. You know where we’ll be tomorrow.

We just got back from Poetry in the Park. That was a cultural experience. And I’ve never felt more like a minority. But Kendyl was probably feeling more out of place than I was… I’m at least kind of, sort of dark skinned… ish….. LOL. I’m going to be honest, Kendyl and I originally went to the event because we had heard that there was going to be free B-Dubs. There was and it was delicious. But in the end I think we both enjoyed ourselves and had a a pretty good time even if it was freezing cold and we both had to pee badly towards the end. Not going to lie, Slam Poetry is pretty awesome and those people have really got powerful stuff to say. I could never do that in front of a crowd all by myself.

I’m really diggin’ MIZ with all the free shirts and shit. Legit.

Also in case you haven’t heard the news… ONE DIRECTION HAS A NEW SONG OUT!! WUT. I’ve probably listened to it at least a hundred+ times already. What’s kind of sad is that Kendyl knew about the song before I did! What is the world coming to?! But I loveeee it! Even if the lyrics make them seem like man-whores. It’s catchy, what can I say. 302 days until I see them LIVE at the Sprint Center!! That’s what’s up. ^_^

New Obsessions and More Procrastination

22 Mar

Not too much has really happened to me this week… just the usual procrastination of homework/studying. I have a psych test tomorrow and I’m in the process of studying for it, but my brain just doesn’t feel like memorizing terms and theories and etc. which is why I decided to be kind of sort of productive and blog!!

Today my written communications class was canceled, so after my anatomy lab this morning I browsed the web for a little bit and went back to bed and didn’t get up until 1:40, just in time to get lunch before the cafeteria closes at 2. I’ve also jumped on the bandwagon and decided to start reading Hunger Games today after class. I made it to page 6ish before I felt my eyes getting droopy (that’s when I slept until 1:40), not because it wasn’t interesting but because I was tired. I’m going to try to finish it in a week-ish so I can go see the movie!

Anyway, I have some new obsessions that have caused me to procrastinate a lot this week. The first one is the Draw Something App. It’s like Hanging with Friends only you draw pictures. I pretty much charge my ipod then play Draw Something, run the battery down, then charge it again. Haha. You all should play it if you have a smart phone or itouch/ipad, etc. Next new obsession is Wong Fu Production. Basically they are a group of asian-americans that make some pretty funny video skits and put them on YouTube, most of the time the videos are about asian-ness. Then they have like a “behind the scenes” called WongFu Weekends that are also pretty hilarious. Since those videos are upwards of about 12 minutes, they are a great time waster. I think I like watching their videos so much because I can relate to them… LOL.

Here’s a video they made with the guy who plays Mike Chang from Glee.

Another obsession I have is Classical Music. Not that I haven’t been listening to lyrical music, but I’ve just been listening to classical a lot lately. And also chinese pop music too… You’re judging me… I know it. It’s not exaclty a new obsession, but One Direction!!! They recently put out their North American Tour Schedule. The closest they’ll be to KC is Chicago. Dang.

Tomorrow I’m getting my car back, finally after about a month later. It’s about freaking time is all I’m going to say about that…. But then I’m probably going to stay home tomorrow since I work for the first time in my life on Saturday! I’ll let you know how that goes.

Okay well I should probably get back to studying…. Or procrastinating… Or whatever…

Spring Break is almost hereeee.

8 Mar

Hey guys. Guess what. It sucks not having a car. Tomorrow my mom is coming to pick me up after she gets off work because my cousin’s car is still not fixed. Hopefully I’ll have it back by the weekend or shits bout to go down.

Besides that news, not too much has happened to me this week.  I peed in a cup as well. Donated some blood today at school (there was a technician guy that looked an awful lot like Andy Roddick, but more football-player-ey rather than tennis player). On Tuesday I basically went to symphony rehearsals for no reason because I’m not playing the piece that they played because I’m not at that level yet…. yeah. But I suffered through the sight reading and it felt like I only played 30 measures of the 15 paged piece. They’re playing another piece for the next concert that I should be able to play, since it’s not as difficult.

Tomorrow I’m going to leave my psych class like 10 minutes early because there’s a chinese australian violinist (his name is Ray Chen, if you were wondering… at all. lol) that’s giving a masterclass. So I’m going to see that because 1)he’s chinese, 2)he’s a violinist,  3) he has an accent, and 4) because he’s a pretty good looking chinese violinist (“good looking” and “chinese” are rarely ever in the same sentence when it comes to chinese males). Also he’s going to eat lunch with some music students so I might go to lunch for that. AHHH. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a little bit excited. He’s giving a free performance at the Kauffman Performing Arts Center on Sunday so I’m going to go see that probably with my Dad and Step-Mom. Super stoked for that too!

Spring break officially begins next week. And to be honest, it has been long overdue. I’ve had too many late nights to count. My cousin comes into town next weekend so I’ll be spending some time with her to catch up and whatnot before I have to come back to school. And me and Kens are planning on taking a road trip to Columbia to see Lei at her GParent’s house. But for the most part, I’ll be sleeping in a lot. Except for Tuesday because One Direction will be on the Today Show, so I’ll probably be up for that! 🙂

Hope all’s well, broskis!

Posting 10 mins before deadline #winning

1 Mar

This week has been pretty busy for me (one of the reasons i’m typing this blog entry at 11:21, I know I’m cutting it close. Don’t burn me at the stake please.)

Monday- Had an anatomy quiz. Pretty much we have to treat the quizzes like tests. They’re pretty hard if not as hard as the tests. Worst feeling in the world is when you feel confident with your answers and get your test/quiz back and realize you were wrong. Sucks to suck bro.

Tuesday- Had an interview with Jackson County Parks and Rec in the morning. I got really paranoid when I arrived to the marina because I wasn’t sure if I was at the right place. The interview itself was kind of interesting. The interviewer told me he didn’t really know how to interview people. And the questions he did prepare to ask me, I apparently was flying through. Which I didn’t know if it was a good or bad thing. But anyway I got the job (yay!). Then I went back to Pimpdence because my 12:25 class (also my only class) for the day was canceled. So I went to Poppy’s for a doughnut, lounged around my house for a bit, visited my GMa and Uncle, and visited my dad and step-mom after that and ate lunch with them. Once I got back to Jewell I had symphony rehearsals. And also this is the day I became car-less. My cousin’s car is getting fixed and needed to borrow someone’s car to get to work for the week… That car happened to be mine. Sucks to suck. I’ll get it back this weekend hopefully. Also our “Mom-Dot” week started Tuesday! Got a lot of stuff and t-shirts and stuffed lions (my sorority’s mascot)! They’re so cute! Also, this is the night it stormed like crazy. And pretty much all of the wifi on campus went out until the next afternoon. That was torturer.

Wednesday- Had my violin lesson. Pretty sure my instructor kind of knew I didn’t practice much. I probably practiced a whole 2-3 hours in 2 weeks. I’m supposed to practice 20 mins daily for a total of 2 hours and 20 mins per week. Or 4 hours and 40 mins in two weeks. Whoops. Then for my sorority we had part 1 of 3 initiation ceremony. Then after that I had my symphony concert. I was also paranoid this day because I couldn’t remember if the concert was at 7:30 or 6:30. I asked one person then had to confirm with like 2 other people that it was 7:30. Jist of the story is that I freak out a lot. That went… interestingly to say the least. During one movement of a piece (<– that was music lingo LOL) I’m pretty sure I didnt play a single note. I was lost from the get-go. We’ve had only rehearsed all the music TWICE before the concert. So yeah… interesting. Also we played one song with the Chapel Choir, which Zac Smith sings in. But that piece was actually decent because the singers drowned out our out of tune notes. HAHA.

Today- I actually made it to that one classed I over slept last time on time. And I ate at the Cage (like a fast food shop in the union) twice today. Not good on my stomach to say the least. PAH! probs tmi. Sorry bros. Today I also had part 2 of 3 initiation ceremony for my sorority. And today was the last day for Mom Dot stuff.

Tomorrow is our last initiation cereomy where we’ll  no longer be classified as “new members”. And we’ll be “Deltas” instead! I’m actually kind of excited for that! Also tomorrow is Friday, which I am totally looking forward to because that means SPRING BREAK will be one week away!! I am in dire need of a break.

Also, this week, I’ve gained a new obsession. Its name: One Direction. The next hottest boy band ever. They’re British!!!! And really good looking. However most of them are a bit younger than me but there is one that’s a couple months older than me. He’s definitely my fav. Me and Lei pretty much listen to their 3 singles that have been released in the States on repeat. They’re better than Justice Beaver (someone made cupcakes for his bday today. there were left overs in the dorm kitchen. they even had Justin Beiber napkins. SMH).


Okay that’s all from me for now.
Peace out!

Megan.
