Bad Day Thursday

24 Jan

It’s only been 3 days since the semester has started and already I’m counting down the days until spring break. I really would just rather be at home not having to worry about school. But so far I think I’m going to really enjoy the classes I’m taking. They will be challenging and time consuming for sure. But luckily I don’t have any 8ams this semester. Yay!

Today was the worst of all the days thus far. It did start off pretty nice though.

I had some extra time this morning and was able to get a cinnamon crunch bagel. And me and Kens “purchased” Passion Pit/Matt and Kim concert tickets (thank goodness for student charge). They’ll be on campus in about a month! Super excited about that. It’s after this that everything started to go downhill. Mainly because I didn’t have much time to grab lunch. Before Micro bio, I did have a package of granola bar. After that I had another class from 430-630pm. Through out the whole class I was thinking about food. More specifically, mashed potatoes and gravy and chicken fingers. So after class, I’m cranky because I haven’t had substantial food since 9am. And when I was driving, I was driving, crankily too and almost hit 2 cars. Yikes. Then I realized that my gas tank was low. When I pulled up to the HyVee gas station, for some reason (I blame the hunger and low energy) I forgot which side my gas tank is on and I pull up on the wrong side. So I drive around again thinking I pulled up to the correct side only to realize that I AGAIN pulled up to the wrong side. At that point I was like, okay I’m just going to restart at a different gas station. 3rd time is the charm I guess. I decide to reward my efforts with Taco Bell. THEN later me and Kens decided to go to the Rec. We were pretty much on campus when my brain decides to remind me that I left my Student ID in my backpack, which was sitting on the floor in my room. Lovely. So I drop Kens off and drive back to get my ID. Also not to mention it’s freaking cold outside. Yep. Crappy day. Ready for sleep. Ready for the weekend. Rant over.

Anyway that’s the only “interesting” stories I have to share this week. Hope your Thursday has been better than mine! 🙂

Also, Google +? More like Google -. Haha! Hopefully it’ll work better this weekend!

Top things I learned this week.

8 Nov

Hello friends.

This post is going to be short. FYI. But here are somethings I learned this week.

1. You may say you’re going to study well in advance for a test. But if that actually happens…  Well, go you!
2.NEVER lie down while studying for said test. You might accidently fall asleep and waste 2 out of your 13ish precious hours you have left to study with. Even if you tell yourself, “I’ll only sleep for 30 mins.” Does it ever really end up being 30 minutes? No. Go study at your desk.
3. Classes should be canceled the week of election week. Heck, they should just make a month long break between the first week of November and Thanksgiving every 4 years. Between voting and watching TV I certainly did not accomplish anything on election day. The results were just so intriguing that I stayed up until 2 am. I had class the next morning at 8 am. Whoops.
4. Halloween is a horrible holiday for people trying to watch their food intake. You should see my trash can. It’s overflowing with candy wrappers. It’s too crazy to pass up cheap name-brand candy and I like Reeses too much.
5. Make sure you check you car’s coolant! My car’s was empty when I got home. And if my mom hadn’t told me to check it, well, I’d probably be without a car.

Must go study for this stupid test now.

PS. If you see me online after you read this post, please ask me WTF I’m doing because there is absolutely no reason why I should be FB when I have barely studied for this test. Then tell me to get off the computer. Thanks! 🙂

Lacking All the Motivation

4 Oct

Hey everyone!

This week has been pretty good so far. As you may have read in Kendyl’s post, the Florence concert was beyond awesome. It was definitely a great first concert experience. One Direction is going to have a high standard to beat come July.

On Tuesday I stayed home and just kind of doped around. Unfortunately I woke up at 9 am after going to bed around 2am. Hate it when I can actually sleep in but my brain decides it can’t sleep past 9. My online test was due at 5pm and I submitted it at 4:57. Winning. I’m not sure about the quality of it though…. And since it was mostly short answer/essay test, she probably won’t have it graded for a couple more days.

The good thing about being home was 1) being able to sleep in my full sized bed– twin sized beds really do suck. And 2) I got to eat my mom’s cooking. TWICE. Delish. One bad thing though was that I forgot my phone charger at home. Thankfully I have a USB cord that charges my phone from my laptop and my car charger that should get me by until I go home next.

Kendyl and I left Pimpdence around 8:30ish. On the way back we listened to Flo+The Machine, of course. We were still on a concert high and were reliving the concert through her songs. She’s so amazing.

Also on Tuesday, at home I cleaned out the top drawer of my night stand. I found a Christmas card where I had stashed a sizable amount of my Christmas money. I, legit, felt my jaw drop to the floor. I treated myself to some new Nike shorts and a t-shirt with said money. They were on sale on a tennis warehouse website. Suppes excited about those. And I actually sent them to the right address apparently (….if you follow my tweets). YAY.

Yesterday I wore pink, not knowing it was “International Mean Girls Day.” And also we found out that Imagine Dragons is performing a FREE SHOW during homecoming weekend. We’re super excited for that!

Once again, I have procrastinated my Biology Homework until the last minute. Instead of doing that today, I have uploaded pictures to Facebook, watched some TV shows,watched various video clips on CNN.com, did 3 loads of laundry, hot glued somethings back together that were broken, worked out at the Rec, and now I’m writing this post. Is it Thanksgiving break yet?!

“Lacking ALL the motivation.” – Kendyl Laughlin
Also since we just got back from the rec, all I want to do is shower and sleep. Shoot.

Hope you all are having more motivation than we are.

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.

No loyalty

21 Mar

Hey everybody, guess what? Spring break. That’s what I have right now.

It was much needed.

I made it through Thursday and Friday last week, and headed home around 11:15 am on Friday, getting home at about 2:15. On Friday night we went to a fish fry at St. Ann’s because we hadn’t gone to one in about 4 years so we went.

Saturday I slept until 11:30 which was glorious and then had St. Patrick’s Day lunch of corned beef and cabbage. Then my family went to the parade on the square which wasn’t really worth it because it only lasted 15 minutes but it was too nice outside to not go. We went to church at 5 on Saturday and then had dinner, and watched Super 8 on demand.

Sunday I slept some more. My dad had to go to work all day so my mom asked us if we wanted to go to the zoo. The last time we went to the zoo was during the summer of 2010 with Moritz and it cost the 5 of us like $75, but this time they had some thing where if you live in Jackson county it’s only like $5 each so it was only $20. We saw the polar bear, he was so cool. I have a photography assignment over landscapes to shoot over break but mostly I just took pictures of animals, sue me.

You can probably guess this but I slept until 10:45 on Monday. I apologize for highlighting what time I woke up every day but it’s just such an important thing that I can’t leave it out. I went to Hy-Vee and…. asked if I can have my job back for the summer. They said of course. I don’t really want to be a cashier again but I can do it for 2 months and I need the money, especially if I ever plan to pay my parents back for a certain $800 plane ticket… Then I went to the square and applied at Clinton’s and UpDog because if I could get another job that would be flipping sweet. I figured those might be places that would possibly be hiring for the summer since it gets kind of touristy over here. I wanted to apply at Yogurtini too but they said it was online. Moritz is coming on July 6 and I’m gonna need something to pass the time from May 9 when I get out of school until then.

Yesterday I seriously didn’t do anything. I woke up during the hour of 9:00 (wtf) and I watched tv shows on demand. Mostly it was Dance Moms. I have a strange addiction to that show, which is weird because I’ve never danced a day in my life. But that dance teacher is so dramatic. She kind of reminds me of Ms. Thompson but Ms. Thompson is much nicer. Also I watched Four Weddings. But the weather is so crappy that there’s nothing else to do. Kelvin asked if he could come get his movie while I’m home (he left a movie called Fantastic Mr. Fox in Springfield when he came to visit Graham. I never want to watch that movie, it looks effing creepy. But I brought it home with me during October in case he needed to get it from my family anytime. Well now I don’t know where it is and he wants it back so I kept telling him “come tomorrow” every day and “tomorrow” suddenly turned into yesterday.)

Today I went to Kohl’s and Marshall’s with my mom to buy some sandals. Then we went to Cherry Berry because it’s right there on 39th St. Cherry Berry is just like Yogurtini, Yogurtopia, Peach Wave, Orange Leaf, etc… only with a different color scheme (red and green). So apparently I have no loyalty to these places because I just get yogurt wherever it’s convenient. One thing I will say about Cherry Berry is that their yogurt did not melt one single bit during the time I was eating it.

Guess which one's mine?


Moritz had 3 of his 4 big tests this week, and his last one is on Monday! YAY!!!!

In other news, my mom told me she had a message on the answering machine that there were shots fired in Chrisman’s parking lot last night. Classy Chrisman. Why are you so classy?

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.
