Winter

15 Jan

Going from a month of being mostly alone (and enjoying it) to being constantly surrounded by 18-22 year olds 24/7 is such difficult transition. Add on to that moving to a new dorm, having a new roommate, getting a loaded schedule, doing laundry, and returning from a weekend retreat in frigid Wyoming and you’ve got one stressed and sleepy college girl. Looking on the bright side of things: I got to experience new things in a new state right before school started, the cold temperatures are keeping the snow around making for beautiful scenery as I walk to all my classes, I have a bedroom to myself so I can be free to decorate as I please, and I don’t have to do laundry until probably Saturday (I still have a lot of dirty clothes that I ran out of time to wash before coming to school).

I can hardly believe I am in my 4th semester of college, time is flying by. This semester a lot of things are going to change. But the biggest change is that I no longer live with Tori, since she got a job as an R.A. That makes me a little sad because I have spent everyday of the past 3 semesters with her. Literally. Also, I really want to go to yogurtini with you all.

I hope you guys enjoy your last week of break and also the new snow in the mountains.

The Desert

20 Dec

Arizona has been pretty great so far. We’ve done a lot of the touristy things, like take millions of pictures of the cacti that are everywhere. We also went to this cave place, the zoo (which doesn’t have pandas), a museum of miniature figurines and doll houses, the desert museum, and today we went to the air and space museum which included a bus tour of the nearby Air Force base. That was pretty cool. I’ll post pictures when I get home. There’s actually been a lot more to see here than I had been expecting.

Surprisingly the weather has been pretty chilly… Like 50s-60s. For a few days, the mountain tops were all snow covered. It was pretty. My parents kept complaining that they were expecting 70 degree weather. I was like whateves, it’s warmer than MO. But now that it’s snowy/icy back there, all I want to do is be trapped inside my house watching Christmas specials and drinking hot chocolate in my puff-puff blanket.

We leave saturday afternoon and won’t be back in town until 7:30. So I have 1 1/2 more days here in the desert! Baaaah I’m actually kind of missing pimpdence and my mom. Also I haven’t done ANY Christmas shopping at all. So I need to get on that once I get back. This week has been really enjoyable but I honestly can’t wait to be back home.

Hope you guys got my postcards that I sent if you posted your address to our chat. (That means everyone except for…. Nick. You’re surprised, I know.) Miss you guys! 🙂

Wait, You have to be awake to attend Geology?

23 Jan

To start off this post I must state that I cant really do anything productive this week, because I am to excited to go to the winter X games, to go to Colorado, to go Snowboarding in Colorado, to see Shaun White, and just a little bit excited to hear/sing All star by Smash mouth 100 times (The same goes for Kendyl times 5).

With that being said the last two  weeks have been  boring typical weeks consisting of going to class, learning, sleeping and eating. Except for Geology which I have Monday, Wednesday, Friday at 10:00 am. I have already slept through it twice once each week so far, and I have only had it five times, and one of those times class was cancelled after five minutes because the projector was broke. So I have only been to two Geology lectures in 2 weeks. On top of that I am going to miss it this Friday and Monday for Colorado. So next week I will have attended Geology 5 of 9 times, I don’t think that’s good, especially for my favorite class.

Really the only interesting thing that has happened here so far this semester was Saturday night when Ron let his roommate Dylan (The Beard) punch him in the face for twenty dollars. Dylan is a bouncer at a bar back in Nebraska where he has been stabbed, and shot in the leg, he is buff. It would take several thousand dollars for me to let Dylan punch me. Any ways so Dylan found some MMA fighting gloves making it .0000000000001% less stupid of Ron for letting him do it. Then Ron took off his glasses closed it eyes and BAM, Dylan did not hold back at all, Ron was so dizzy and out of it afterward that he was barely able to grasp the twenty dollars Dylan gave him.

Sunday I played soccer for the first time since November. We only played for a hour and a half but I am so out of shape that I thought I was going to die. I took a 30 minute hot shower afterward because I was immediately super sore.

On another note it is currently Snowing cats and pandas. This is the 4th time we have gotten a quick heavy snowstorm that only dumped a inch or less.

Colorado in 3 Days and Counting, X Games in 5 Days and Counting!

Peace, Love, and Happiness
