Climate Change, WTF?

29 Aug

Hey everybody.

My first two weeks have just been aight.
With everything that’s going on with Moritz’s family right now, I’ve been having a really hard time concentrating on anything, I just worry about him so much. I’m super unmotivated and I basically feel like I’ve been a zombie ever since school started. This could also have something to do with the fact that I don’t give two shits about any of the classes I’m taking. Calculus I with this Russian guy who says “wariables” instead of “variables”. Sociology with this crazy lady who wears shirts that are too small for her large bosoms and admitted to smoking weed. Fit for life, come on, that one is self-explanatory. Adapting to Climate Change, WTF? And Spanish 301, Composition and Literature, where we read poems written in medieval Spanish when we don’t even understand regular Spanish, and all poems are ambiguous as hell already, so how am I even supposed to answer 30 questions about this damn poem? Hey, remember that time when I was supposed to be an Advertising and Public Relations major?

Life in the apartment is pretty good though, gotta admit.

In case you forgot, I’m living with Caitlin (suitemate from last year), Kayla (friend with German boyfriend, only said boyfriend now is attending Drury), Deidre (friend of Kayla’s) and Said Boyfriend from Germany, Tobi (he has a dorm but he practically lives here). He’s cool, I wish my Said Boyfriend lived here too.

So, the four of us girls have to start our service project pretty soon. Last night I spent the better part of 4 hours making our blog that we are supposed to have, instead of working on Spanish homework like I should have. Here’s the address to it, hopefully it becomes pretty rad. http://summitcares2013.blogspot.com. I decided to use blogspot because it gave me more editing liberties, and this blog has to go on the Drury webpage. Yikes.

That’s about all, but the only other noteworthy thing: Remember #DUprobz (@DUprobz) ? Well now there is @DUgossip. LOL! For some reason Springfield has a website where you can freely browse all the mugshots that your heart desires, and @DUgossip posts the mugshots of people from Drury and other funny stuff about people. They even have their own email so we can anonymously send in “tips.” How clever!

I’ll be home around 4 on Friday, until Monday afternoon. And I’ll be slinging wienies with Tristan from 12-8 on Saturday. I hope I see you guys at Santacaligon! (Except I won’t see you Morg) 😦

not caring about school anymore because there is only 1 month left

11 Apr

Today is the first day in a while where I don’t know what to write about, but I will try to think of something.

I always do. Thursday at 3 I left to go home for Easter, which was cool. Friday morning I had an interview for a summer job at UpDog; it was super chill and the guy who interviewed me didn’t write my answers down or anything, we just had a conversation. I think I’ll get the job.

Friday I also found out I did get selected out of like 60 people to be an ambassador, I think I wrote about that in my last post but I pretty much knew I’d get it. Friday I went to church at 3 and we dyed Easter eggs that night. I had a video assignment due Tuesday, which I had not started on, hence I had to film at home. I used my dad’s video camera, but alas, I FORGOT MY FREAKING TRIPOD HEFOWAFNMKS;NVSDZK;NVD. What a pain in the ass. I had to conduct interviews by sitting my family down at the kitchen table and putting the camera on a peanut butter jar in order to achieve proper framing.

Saturday I did my photography assignment at Carrie’s soccer game, and that was fun because I hadn’t been to one of her games since last season (fall). Moritz told her to score a goal for him before the game (she never scores goals) and lo and behold… she did! I also made mini Easter cheesecakes that I found on pinterest, and they had devil coconut on it. But I don’t mind coconut. Then we went from church from 8-10pm, and I’m almost 100% sure that I was the last one to blow out my candle when they told us to. (I kept letting mine stay lit for like 5 extra minutes.)

Sunday was Easter, Carrie woke me up too early at 8:00 am, and I went downstairs to my awesome Easter basket, including about 30,000 calories worth of chocolate. I still have this weird thing going on where I never have much of an appetite, so I didn’t eat a lot of it yet, and I left it at home when I came back to school. Who IS this person that I’m turning into?! My dad had been saying that there would be no “Amazing Race/Easter Egg Hunt” this year (Morgan, you can understand what I’m talking about) but we ended up having one anyway, he tricked us 🙂 It was a little shorter though, but it was still a lot of fun, and included but was not limited to: filling a sock up with lima beans in a relay race, sitting on a bench in a small cemetery, going to an arcade, giving cookies to firemen, and “destroying the Horcruxes” by using a slingshot to shoot marbles at 6 plates with pictures of Voldemort, Lucius Malfoy, Draco Malfoy, Professor Umbridge, Bellatrix Lestrange, and Dementors taped to them. I broke Voldemort.

Sunday night I decided I didn’t feel like driving back to school, so I played hooky on Monday! (My first time for these classes, but they are MWF at 9, 10, and 11 so I couldn’t really get back in time in the morning.) I did my Spanish homework that was due and emailed it to him. I woke up around 8:30 and left at 10:30. Got back at 1:30, skyped briefly (because Moritz is in Spain Tuesday-Thursday), and then proceeded to the Mac Lab to work on my video project.

What I was not anticipating was the fact that I had to transfer 20+ video clips to the Mac computer via MY 8GIG MEMORY CARD. That was annoying. I had to do it because a portable hard drive can’t be compatible with a mac and pc simultaneously. THEN I had to convert all the files to be able to be seen on Final Cut Pro, THEN they didn’t have sound so I had to convert them again. This took about 2 hours. By the time the video was done, I had spent a total of SEVEN CONSECUTIVE HOURS on this dang assignment. However, time went fast due to the high level of fun I was having.
Here’s the final product:

(hope you guys can see it)

Tonight we’re having an event called Sex on Campus, where the human sexuality teacher answers people’s anonymous questions. I signed up to “chalk” for the event, meaning write information on the ground outside around campus. I incidentally made a trail of sperm that lead to the building in which the event is held. Clever, I know.

I’m tired of typing, you’re probably tired of reading, see you on the flip side.
