La vida loca

24 Apr

I am living the crazy life.

I’ll spare you the details of everything I need to do in the next 3 weeks, because you probably don’t really want to hear about them and I don’t want to think about them.

Over the weekend I went to St. Louis with Caitlin. It was pretty fun. On the 3.5-hour drive, I was keeping up on the Boston bomber suspect search via Twitter. My favorite part was when, right in the middle of breaking news tweets that the suspect had been located, the Associated Press felt the need to announce this:

Yes, what an opportune time to mention Kim Kardashian’s divorce. We all care about that so much and there was definitely nothing else exciting going on at this moment.

Anyway, we got to Caitlin’s house and of course her mom was watching it all unfold on TV so her dad got us Qdoba and we ate and watched them get the suspect. I was really interested in seeing what happened.

Then we got Dairy Queen and went to bed. We woke up at 11:30 and went to the St. Louis Zoo which was really nice, and it was free! It was the perfect day to go to the zoo. It’s a lot different than ours. Afterwards we went to the Arch. We didn’t go up in it because that probably costs money and we’re poor but it was fun to walk around outside. We saw a lot of people taking prom pictures in pretty dresses.

It made me want to go to prom again (ours was 2 years ago yesterday) but then I realized that having to be in high school again would not be worth it. If someone offered me $1 million to go to high school again for a year, I honestly can’t say whether I would or not. That’s a lot of money but high school just sucks soooo bad.

I saw this on someone’s twitter the other day. I find it accurate.

That’s all for now. Maybe talk to you next week if I still have my sanity.

Hello everyone. To those of us who are still in school… ONE MORE WEEK! We can do it… most likely.

Nothing going on. Over the weekend I went home because Becky had prom, and Caitlin came too. I can’t even count the number of THIS dead animal that we saw as roadkill… wtf? I have NEVER seen those before while journeying from Springfield to Independence and back.

The weekend was fun. Friday night we drove around and I showed Caitlin places of interest, Saturday we hung out at home and I went to the dentist (nothing wrong with my teeth). Then Becky came home from getting her hair done, and all her asshole douchebag shithead pieces of shit “friends” decided they were going to take pictures and go to the restaurant 45 minutes early without her, and she wasn’t ready yet, also they decided not to pick her up. I wanted to go to that restaurant and give those little bitches a piece of my mind… like seriously? Do they not have any concern for anyone but themselves? Well anyway, Becky looked awesome and my mom took her to the restaurant and my mom was pretty pissed at those kids too.

Then Carrie had her friend Maureen spend the night, and around 8:00 the 4 of us decided to walk to Yogurtini because me and Caitlin are suckers for fro-yo in Springfield and Caitlin was impressed with Yogurtini. Then my mom picked us up, and dropped Carrie and Maureen off at home, and took Caitlin and I to the movies with her and the 3 of us saw The Lucky One with Zac Efron. We love him.

Went home, went to bed, went to church, and watched High School Musical 3 the next day. We had to leave around 2:30 because Caitlin had a sorority meeting at 6 back at school.

Good news – I got a 97/100 on my mustache video and I finished that class with an A!

So, you may be asking yourself, what does the next week bring for me? So, I would answer you, a shit ton of stuff. Oral Spanish interview in the morning, working in the Alumni office later on to help with pre-graduation stuff, and Potter’s House with the Authentic Ministries crew tonight. A barbecue at the Drury Ambassador advisor’s house on Thursday, and another barbecue with Authentic on Sunday. A computer science program due Friday that I haven’t started yet, and two labs that were started in March but were never finished (with good reason). Cleaning the bathroom Saturday. Mounting my photographs on boards (and first buying said boards). FINALS (one on Tuesday, + a paper being due, and one on Wednesday). I’m going home WEDNESDAY! Packing. Gotta do that Monday, I suppose. My mom is coming around 3 on Wednesday and I have to check out by 4:30. So this should be fun.

I’m just really excited! I survived the first year……… almost.

P.S.The reason I am posting this at 12:30am is because I think tomorrow I will be too busy to post during real hours.
P.P.S. I couldn’t think of a title then I went to facebook and someone posted brotip #1865 as their status and I found it extremely appropriate.

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.
