I have worked a total of 45 hours since last Saturday. That’s almost 3 times as much as I normally would when I’m home. But let me tell you, it hasn’t seemed like that much. Except for yesturday, when I worked a 9 hour shift, all on my feet because, you guessed it, I got a 2nd job. It’s retail.

What can I say? My feet hurt. If I wasn’t getting paid what I am I would cry myself to sleep everynight. Oh wait, that’s already begun.

Maybe I should just keep it at “I plan on keeping my office job” or “This is why I’m going to college because I don’t want to end up being Bon Qui Qui’s co-worker“:

Next week I’ll end up working about the same hours. It will be my last week of pergatory because hell will come with 2nd semester.


Really… Really?

Is a -20* windchill necesary? I don’t think so! I was kinda hoping that I could escape the bitterly cold weather when I came back home: no more ice, snow, wind, frostbitten extremeties… Seriously this weather threw a wrench in my plans!

The cold weather kept me inside during the week of finals, except for the times when I went to my finals (2 times) and when I went to Hastings to rent 5 movies at a time… multiple times (I watched over 12 movies in the last week!)

The weather is still keeping me inside. I had high hopes of going running outside. You know, so that I could get that nasty burn in my lungs from the cold air and the mucus running down the back of my throat and keeping me from breathing so that I can’t run any more. I guess I’ll just have to run inside, at the gym.

Is Forgetfulness a Good Enough Excuse for You?

Let’s just say that I totally forgot that I had a blog to tend to last week… I don’t know what to say. It’s not like I even really did anything last week. I kinda just hung out 24/7. I probably could do about the same this week.

This week is dead week. I cannot figure out if it’s dead because it will kill you with projects OR because the campus looks dead, i.e. there’s no life: everyone just wants to be done with the semester kind of thing and there’s nothing going on. If you know, please tell me.

For myself, this week and next week are dead, as in: just plain boring.

  • Got a Chem Lab test tonight
  • Christmas party tomorrow night
  • Spanish improv drama craziness wednesday
  • thursday nothing
  • turn in my psychology research paper (easy!) on friday (or wednesday)
  • Saturday/Sunday= study for my Chem final. Yuck.
  • Monday 9pm-Thursday 7pm chillax
  • Spanish final (easy!) thursday night
  • Friday go home

So what am I going to do with my free time? That’s a good questi0n. I will probably:

  • watch a crazy amount of movies
  • spend quite a bit of time at the Rec/Nat/Erg room (I really want to improve my cardio fitness)
  • read: Cover the Butter, The Shack, New Moon, Eclipse, and P.S. I Love You
  • scour the room and bathroom like a madwoman

I think all of that will keep me busy. Espcially if I combine my reading with going to the Rec. What a good idea! I love to set the recumbent bike on the random setting and on a high level and just read. It goes by fast and you really work up a sweat. (I prefer climbs to sprints though, so it may be different for you)

A Bad Case of the Blahs

Blah. That’s how I’m feeling today. It probably has something to do with my lack of restful sleep. Don’t ask me why I haven’t been sleeping well, because I don’t know why.

Last night was because I had some crazy dream… way more crazy than normal. Mrs. Lopez (from the show George Lopez) was murdered and I had to save her 15 some little children from being blown up by a bomb too. Then a strange man tried to give the kids drug laced gummy bears. This all took place at a church that often appears in my dreams and also at my elementary/middle school playground. Anyways it was so disturbing I kept waking up and tossing and turning.

The night prior to that I just had a lot on my mind and not much time to sleep.

I guess I should be happy that Igot to sleep in this morning and I don’t have class today. All I have to do today is exercixe for 5 bajillion hours and do my pre-lab activities for chemistry. And figure out some christmas present issues.

All I can say is that i really don’t feel like doing anything today. I just want to read and take a shower and maybe eat eventually. Getting no restful sleep tends to make me quite lazy. Here’s my to-do list:

  • put on exercise clothes
  • work out like a fiend
  • shower
  • lunch
  • nap?
  • do pre-lab
  • see #2
  • watch more of Windtalkers
  • floor dinner
  • read The Shack or New Moon, haven’t decided
  • go to the library: continue reading?
  • come back to the room
  • make some decaf tea/ drink said tea
  • watch more of Windtalkers (it’s 2.5 hours!)
  • go to bed

Ok, probably should get working on that plan…
