That Colorado Life

23 Sep

So, as you may know, Colorado has been hit hard for the last week by the floods! I can’t believe it! It’s so crazy how much rain came down last week and how much damage it caused. One of the best roads (highway 34) was completely demolished going up to Estes Park (one of the best places in this state). This means no roommate camping trip this fall 😦 Luckily, I guess, my school wasn’t damaged by the floods. We did have a flood day! School was cancelled because so many people couldn’t leave their houses to get to Greeley. How crazy is that?!

In other news, I am almost finished decorating my room! Ugh- it’s been 4 weeks and my picture frames are still on my floor. It is so hard to decorate a room knowing you will be living in it for 2 years. I might be discovering that I have commitment issues just a wee bit.

In school news, I hate Physics. I can’t understand my asian professor. She is so excited about Physics that her words get all jumbled when they come out of her mouth. When she was trying to explain The Law of Universal Gravitation and how to simplify the problem her exact words were “The sixes cancel out the other six and all the sixes are gone. No other numbers are left. So this equals approximately 10. You with me?” Uh no. No. What? NO. BUT I have a tutor! Well, he’s an unofficial tutor/friend of a friend. Fun story, I texted him on a Tuesday night to see if we could study on Thursday. After successfully communicating that the library would be our meeting place, the time we would , and topics we would need to cover I received this message, “Sounds great! See you then :$” I was a bit confused by the smiley face, but got over it knowing  the dolla sign and bracket are right next to each other. But then, I received another message, “Oh sorry, I’m hammered right now :)*” Um, it’s Tuesday night sir, why are you hammered on a Tuesday?! Also, why are you telling me this? I don’t want to know that much about your life right now. I have no clue what kind of “relationship” we are supposed to have. Is this a teacher-student type thing, or are we going to be friends, or are we pretending to not know each other after this semester of tutoring? I have no clue. But I don’t think he does either. It’s a weird thing that I don’t understand just yet. Also he get’s hammered on Tuesdays, not the best choice in tutors Morg…

Also, I apologize for this irrelevant post. I am not loving writing right now so even writing this blog feels like schEWl.

Miss you guys, also I’m a little bitter that you are in/going to London for Thanksgiving. I am so poor I am barely making it back to KC for the holiday. blah.

Ciao

P.S. I still haven’t switched to iOs7 I just can’t change it yet….

P.S.S. I ride my bike to school sometimes, the last time I did I was complemented on how cute my basket is. I felt so cool.

13 Feb

These past two weeks have been the busiest ever.

Last week I did something I’ve never done before; I got a tutor. That was probably one of the toughest things I’ve done in awhile. I am way too stubborn to ask for help but if I want to pass Organismal Biology, I’m going to need my tutor. I have studied more for this class in the past weeks than I have ever studied before in my entire life. Note to everyone out there- biology is stupid, I prefer non-living things (ex. rocks, dust, dirt, sediment, cookies, ice-cream, sleep). I also joined a Bible study that meets on Monday nights. There are 5 other freshmen girls in it and right now we are studying the book of Hebrews. It’s pretty interesting and Hebrews is only 13 chapters so y’all should read it if you have the chance.

Almost fun thing that happened this week, I went to a Valentine’s Day party! But don’t get too excited, it was thrown by Navigators (the Christian ministry on campus). I helped decorate for 3 hours before the party, met some people, then when everybody started dancing I snuck out the door. Me + dancing = disaster. I didn’t want to lose the friends I had just made. (:

This weekend Tori’s family moved to a new house. It is super huge and pretty. I have never really helped anyone move before and, man, it was not easy. (I also contracted a cold or something this weekend so that didn’t help). If any of you ever move, I will help by paying someone else to give you a massage after it’s all done and then I’ll go to your house and complement on how good everything looks. If you really really really do need help I will volunteer, but you better have a hot tub for me to soak in afterwards. (Tori’s fam has/had one but it wasn’t working properly this weekend- super sad)

Tomorrow, Tori and I are going to see The Vow. I am so ready. I have tissues and new water proof mascara and lots of candy. I literally cannot wait to see this movie. I also want to see The Lucky One staring Zach Efron, The Lorax, New Years Eve, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, Mirror Mirror, The Hunger Games, and How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying (this is a musical staring first Daniel Radcliffe, then Darren Criss, then Nick Jonas I want to see it three times). All these cost money and I aint got none. Bummed. I applied to 3 places to work at over the summer, and will be applying to a 4th over spring break- I better get one.

Things to look forward to this weekend: skiing on saturday.

Things I’m afraid might kill me this weekend: skiing on saturday.

I hope to tell y’all all about it next week, if I make it!

p.s. I might be changing my major………………..

p.p.s. Whitney Houston died on saturday and I am very sad about this, so I tagged her in my post.
