Spring Breeeeak.

16 Mar

I’m posting super late/not on my day because Honey Badger doesn’t give a shit. (Thanks Cathy for the inspiration!)

Besides not having my car for 2+ weeks (And still NOT having it), this week has actually been filled with quite a bit of exciting things! For one, on Friday myself and some other students ate lunch with RAY CHEN after seeing the masterclass he gave at Jewell. The masterclass was pretty baller for one because I was like 15 feet away from a Strad Violin (they cost millions of dollars and produce amazing sounds), yeah Ray Chen uses one of those. Then Sunday was his recital at the Kauffman Center. It was sooo hoss, bros. The bad thing is that watching a performance like that just makes you want to practice a lot, which might actually be a good thing. Anyway, after the performance you can get autographs (I can feel you all judging me at this point). So I stood in line and as he was signing his name my program, he looked up and was like “Oh hey! It’s nice to see you again!” Yeah, he remembered me from when he was at Jewell. NBD. Then I got a picture taken with him (see my new profile picture on FB). Also since it was free concert, I invited my step mom and dad to go since they had been wanting to see the Kauffman Center because they had never been. The whole time we were there my dad was like “Ray Chen could be your future husband!” Totes querd. Then when the performance started and he walked out on stage my stepmom leans over and says to me “If I were younger I would totally go after him.” Also totes querd. I realize he’s a nice looking Chinese Male, but to hear that from your parents in that strange way is totally awkward! Anyway after all that fun-ness…. we went to eat at the Ameristar Casino Buffet. Aweee yeeeah.

Monday night Kendyl and I went to Morgan’s house, made milkshakes, watched 17 Again, and just chilled. Before we knew it, it was almost 3 in the morning, so we all decided it would probably be best if we went home. lol. Tuesday I went to Target. This was also the day One Direction’s album came out! And it was on sale at Target for 8 dollars!! So i bought it. It was a good investment, fo sho.

Wednesday Kendyl and I took a little road trip to CoMo to visit Lei. Pretty much the whole way down, Kendyl was quizzing me on Anatomy, specifically the muscles that move the arm. I made a wrong turn at an exit because I was trying to concentrate on finding the answer to the question she was asking me. Anyway, once we got to the Columbia area, we went to Shakespeare’s for Pizza. Nick came to visit and took some pizza from our plates. Then we went on the Mizzou Campus and Nick showed us around the Rec Center, which was freaking awesome. That took like 20ish minutes, then Nick had to go study (SURPRISE). So we wandered around campus by ourselves. We visited the quad but we were too scared that we’d look like noobs to take pictures on the Columns. So we just sat on some benches around the quad for a bit and enjoyed the nice weather and made fun of the hipsters playing Frisbee on the quad.  Then we went to get Boba at a Bubble Tea shop. I had a coffee slush boba. It was delish. It was Kendyl’s first experience with Boba, and it was interesting to watch her psych herself out about the bobas. LOL! 😀 After that we went back to Lei’s Gparent’s house, ate dinner, watched part of “Holes” then watched J. Edgar with Leo Di Caprio. That movie was interesting to say the least…. almost like Broakback Mountain, so Lei told us anyway… I haven’t seen that movie before.

Then today (technically yesterday) we went to see the Lorax. It was such a cute movie! Totally recommend it! Then after, we went back to downtown Columbia, and Kendyl and Lei made “cool story, bro. tell it again” t-shirts at a really cool “make your own t-shirt” store. I didn’t get one because my money supply isn’t very high at the moment. lol. However I will definitely be going back there to make some tees in the future. They had some previously made t-shirts hanging up on their walls. One in particular that I thought was awesome had a Hogwarts Crest and said “Hogwarts Alumni Class of 1998” tee. I want it so bad.  While we were waiting for their t-shirts to be made, we went to Sparky’s for some tasty homemade ice cream. I got Chi Tea ice cream. It was delish, fo sho. Kendyl got a Red Bull shake. I will have to try that sometime. Then we just kind of wandered around the downtown area for a little bit. We went back to Lei’s Gparent’s, ate dinner then decided that we should probably head back to Pimpdence because it looked like it was about to storm soon and it was getting dark. Driving back, Kendyl said it sounded like rain was hitting the windshield, but it was actually just bugs getting smashed by my mom’s car.

That’s all for this week, bros. Keep it real!

Posting 10 mins before deadline #winning

1 Mar

This week has been pretty busy for me (one of the reasons i’m typing this blog entry at 11:21, I know I’m cutting it close. Don’t burn me at the stake please.)

Monday- Had an anatomy quiz. Pretty much we have to treat the quizzes like tests. They’re pretty hard if not as hard as the tests. Worst feeling in the world is when you feel confident with your answers and get your test/quiz back and realize you were wrong. Sucks to suck bro.

Tuesday- Had an interview with Jackson County Parks and Rec in the morning. I got really paranoid when I arrived to the marina because I wasn’t sure if I was at the right place. The interview itself was kind of interesting. The interviewer told me he didn’t really know how to interview people. And the questions he did prepare to ask me, I apparently was flying through. Which I didn’t know if it was a good or bad thing. But anyway I got the job (yay!). Then I went back to Pimpdence because my 12:25 class (also my only class) for the day was canceled. So I went to Poppy’s for a doughnut, lounged around my house for a bit, visited my GMa and Uncle, and visited my dad and step-mom after that and ate lunch with them. Once I got back to Jewell I had symphony rehearsals. And also this is the day I became car-less. My cousin’s car is getting fixed and needed to borrow someone’s car to get to work for the week… That car happened to be mine. Sucks to suck. I’ll get it back this weekend hopefully. Also our “Mom-Dot” week started Tuesday! Got a lot of stuff and t-shirts and stuffed lions (my sorority’s mascot)! They’re so cute! Also, this is the night it stormed like crazy. And pretty much all of the wifi on campus went out until the next afternoon. That was torturer.

Wednesday- Had my violin lesson. Pretty sure my instructor kind of knew I didn’t practice much. I probably practiced a whole 2-3 hours in 2 weeks. I’m supposed to practice 20 mins daily for a total of 2 hours and 20 mins per week. Or 4 hours and 40 mins in two weeks. Whoops. Then for my sorority we had part 1 of 3 initiation ceremony. Then after that I had my symphony concert. I was also paranoid this day because I couldn’t remember if the concert was at 7:30 or 6:30. I asked one person then had to confirm with like 2 other people that it was 7:30. Jist of the story is that I freak out a lot. That went… interestingly to say the least. During one movement of a piece (<– that was music lingo LOL) I’m pretty sure I didnt play a single note. I was lost from the get-go. We’ve had only rehearsed all the music TWICE before the concert. So yeah… interesting. Also we played one song with the Chapel Choir, which Zac Smith sings in. But that piece was actually decent because the singers drowned out our out of tune notes. HAHA.

Today- I actually made it to that one classed I over slept last time on time. And I ate at the Cage (like a fast food shop in the union) twice today. Not good on my stomach to say the least. PAH! probs tmi. Sorry bros. Today I also had part 2 of 3 initiation ceremony for my sorority. And today was the last day for Mom Dot stuff.

Tomorrow is our last initiation cereomy where we’ll  no longer be classified as “new members”. And we’ll be “Deltas” instead! I’m actually kind of excited for that! Also tomorrow is Friday, which I am totally looking forward to because that means SPRING BREAK will be one week away!! I am in dire need of a break.

Also, this week, I’ve gained a new obsession. Its name: One Direction. The next hottest boy band ever. They’re British!!!! And really good looking. However most of them are a bit younger than me but there is one that’s a couple months older than me. He’s definitely my fav. Me and Lei pretty much listen to their 3 singles that have been released in the States on repeat. They’re better than Justice Beaver (someone made cupcakes for his bday today. there were left overs in the dorm kitchen. they even had Justin Beiber napkins. SMH).


Okay that’s all from me for now.
Peace out!

Megan.
