This weekend is gonna be awesome

5 Feb

Not much too exciting has been going on this week. I wish I had gotten two snow days like Mizzou and every other school in the state yesterday so I could have had schwartzed Monday and Tuesday. Anyway, I went to school in the middle of the blizzard and even skipped lunch so I could just stay in the Comm building during the 1-hour gap between my classes and not go outside.

I’ve been pretty preoccupied lately with trying to find an internship for the summer. Preferably paid. I want to work almost full time and make monies too. I have to interview and write a profile of a Comm Department grad that works at a company in KC as a social media analyst, which I think would be pretty cool to do. I think they have some internships too, so I’m going to stop there and do my interview in person before I come home on Friday afternoon! I got the LinkedIn app last night which I’m pretty sure makes me officially an old lame person but I just really really want some experience somewhere. Hanna and I unwisely stayed up entirely way too late the other night searching for internships.

The only other thing I’ve been doing is trying to keep up on homework. I have a lot of ideas flowing for my website for Web Comm and I spent about 6 hours this weekend in the Mac lab on photoshop, drawing a header image of Tower Bridge. My assignment for Friday is to write a sample post for my blog, so I did that! I bought the domain name and my blog is going to be changing a lot over the next few weeks as I learn how to design it how I want, but if you ever want to read it, here’s the link. http://www.madaboutlondonguide.com. Super basic right now! Also I need to do some reading for Spanish (when it’s an independent study, you can’t get away with not doing the reading). Usually it’s out of our textbook which is in Spanish so it takes about 30-45 minutes to read… he told me the one for tomorrow would be in English, so that made me excited, but I just pulled it up and it’s 36 pages. Yeah.

GETTING SO SO EXCITED FOR THIS WEEKEND. WOMBIES + DEREK TAKE KC AWW YEAH. 12 hour saga here we come. Gonna try to motivate myself to do some extra homework tonight so maybe I can go shopping tomorrow weeeeeeee

T-minus 19 hours

22 Nov

Hello friends! Morgan is probably the only one who will read this because the rest of you are preparing to get on a plane, and Nick most likely doesn’t exist anymore.

I’ve been working hard this week so I can make sure I don’t have to worry about anything while Derek, Megan, and Kendyl are here! So by that, I mean that I spent 12 hours on this theatre project yesterday and I’ve only left campus once in the past 4 days (yikes). I hate doing that. One of the days, I didn’t feel so bad because it was pouring rain, but I hate to spend a whole day inside. Sometimes you just have so much stuff to do that it really can’t go any other way.

The project that’s been eating up so much of my time is a theatre project where I have to cast it, come up with a set, design scheme, costumes, lighting, sound, etc. It’s not a boring or uninteresting project, but it’s reeeeeally time consuming. My play has six characters. Here are the people I casted for it: Emma Stone, Michael Cera, Steve Carrell, Amy Poehler, the guy who plays the dad in Good Luck Charlie, and the guy who plays Schmidt in New Girl. Lawls.

So I’m writing this blog to just take a break from that for a while. I stayed up until almost 4:00am working on it. I got up at 9:30 to go eat breakfast with Hanna because we freaking love the granola in the cafeteria (S/O to American Pecan Crunch). Now I’m in the library again which temporarily becomes my home for a week at a time. It’s not very peaceful though because they are apparently doing some carpentry in the corner, because according to a large whiteboard, “THE NEW RED SEATS ARE NOT QUITE READY TO BE USED.”

I can’t wait until those of you that are coming here can see the types of people I have to go to class with every day, and by that I mean they are all extremely rich. I accidentally almost wore yoga pants to class yesterday and that would have been such a faux pas. Expect to see many large fur vests and Louis Vuitton bags in the hallways here.

I really better get back to my project now, and anyone who’s interested in hearing about my time in Prague last weekend can read my other blog! http://cathyinlondon2013.wordpress.com

I can’t believe it’s been three and a half months since I last saw all of you!

I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE YOU THREE TOMORRRRROOOOWW and I WISH YOU’D BE HERE TOO, MORGAN ❤

Cathy

P.S. Don’t forget, London is calling you. Specifically, Big Ben. I told him you’ll be here soon enough.

We're waiting for you! <3

We’re waiting for you! ❤

Hot Commodities.

5 Nov

I signed up for my classes yesterday and my schedule doesn’t seem too bad. I won’t have classes on Friday and very minimal classes Monday-Thursday because I’m taking all of my health science classes (7 credits) online.

Friday I drove home with Tristan so I could play in my last two indoor soccer games and Tristan even played (lol). Then after the games Megan and Derek came over and we ate pizza and Megan finished learning how to ride her bike! It was pretty cold so we got blankets and watched Megan conquer the art of bike riding under the stars (which might I add were really bright that evening).

Saturday I slept in because it was the first Saturday in forever that I wasn’t working! Then my mom took me to the post office to get international stamps because like I said in an earlier post stamps are a hot commodity. After that we picked up Tristan from home and took him to get a shot at CVS so he doesn’t get dirty dorm room diseases. After that we went to visit my Grandma since I wasn’t going to be able to go to her house for Sunday dinner. At about 3 we headed back to Columbia so we could go to the Mizzou Football game because Tristan had gotten me a ticket from his friend Jordan. We sat on a blacket in the grassy section behind the endzone and they won 31-3 Yiphee!

Sunday was relaxation/cleaning/homework/Chiefs are 9-0 day!!!

This weekend we are planning on going up to the farm because I won’t be able to over Thanksgiving break. I’ll be sure to take some photos of some quality Laughlin Angus cows for you guys.

P.S. I graduate in a little over a year and a month… SCARY.

P.P.S. I’m not even old enough to drink a fucking beer (lol Tristan #wombies)

P.P.P.S. Three hour saga 🙂
