Wednesday (technically Thursday)

20 Dec

Well this is my obligatory Wednesday post for the week, although it will probably be my last one until school starts again in like 5 weeks (woohoo).

Because on Friday, I leave for Germany!!! Hip hip hooray! So then 1/3 of our chrisman2college crew will be in the lovely continent of Europe.

So what have I been doing this week in preparation? Monday my mom gave me my credit card for the first time and I went on a shopping spree for myself. Tuesday I dyed part of my hair purple, because you know what, I’m 20 and  #YOLO. Today I went shopping for craft supplies to make Christmas gifts for Moritz and his sister, and this evening I made said gifts. And painted my toenails.  And dyed some more of my hair. (#YOLO)

But guess what one thing I haven’t been doing is? If you guessed packing, then you’d be correct. I never pack until the last possible minute. And my room is still in disarray from coming home from college, because I never unpack either. I haven’t even begun to sort through what’s clean, what’s dirty, what I need to take, etc… and I probably won’t until a few hours before I leave for the airport. Also this is probably the reason I always realize something I forgot when I get to the airport, like last time it was toothpaste in a 3 oz or less tube, so I had to buy some for like $7 at the airport gift shop so when I arrived in Germany 12 hours later my breath wouldn’t smell.

Ummm, in case you hadn’t heard, I got all A’s and a C+ this semester, making this my first “C” ever (or at least when it actually counts) since 6th grade when I got it in band for never turning in my practice records. Thank you, Calculus, for thwarting my opportunity for the Dean’s List this semester. I’m so excited to be done with math FOREVER though 🙂

Well, talk to you all in about 3 and 1/2 weeks and I’ll send you postcards, I think I have everyone’s address!

This week I decided to learn to cook… well a little bit.

On Saturday I night I made Chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes, and gravy (all from scratch). I found the recipe here and after 2 ½ hours and 5 phone calls to my mother I would say I was pretty successful.

Then on Sunday I had nothing better to do so I found a recipe for shrimp scampi here so I made that and put it over pasta. I also baked some fresh green beans with the recipe I found here. This was much easier than the chicken fried steak because I just had to use the oven. When there is “pan-sizzling” (this is what I call cooking things on the stove) involved I freak out.

Today I have been doing everything not to study I made mac and cheese when I wasn’t even hungry, made several cards and I practiced packing all the things I am going to bring to Finland. After my classes tomorrow I am going to head home for the long weekend and then come back for my finals on Monday and Tuesday. Then I leave for Finland on the 13th!

Keep it Classy.
