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)


Hell Month is Soon to be Over

After tonight the worst month of my life to date shall be over. After this chemistry test that I plan on stomping into the ground with my awesomeness I will pretty much be done with the craziness called mid-semester. Only one more paper to write, 2 more tests, and possibly only 2 finals one of which I will probably ace without even trying (did I tell you that I set the curve for my spanish midterm??)

Even though I was cooped up in my room all of yesturday- because saturday was my “fun” day (breakfast at panera and a movie night with the roomie and suite-ie and lots of naps in between- I’ve still got some studying to do. We’re covering Thermochemistry, electron orbital stuff, and periodic table prediction crap. I don’t know if you remember any of that from high school or college but it’s nasty stuff, well only the thermochemistry is.

After the test tonight I’ll be watching Sleepy Hollow. You know, with Johnny Depp. Kinda excited about that. And I get to sleep in tomorrow morning, yay! With no classes (except I sorta have one), you do the math. I also have something exciting to tell you mom. I might call you as I’m walking home from the test tonight.

Now I’m off to see the Wizard- the chemistry wizard, that is also know by “Roomie’s study guide for my chem book that she bought off of Amazon just for me her”

Sorry Mr. Chemistry

So the Chem test really wasn’t that bad. I only missed a couple questions (some because I was stupid/ should have known better and one because of phrasing) AND raised my grade in there by 30%. I think it’s a pretty good day. And my TA for lab knows my name. I don’t know how many labs he conducts but I’m sure it’s a lot. Just letting you know mom and dad, that probably the closest I will get to my professor knowing my name, except for in Spanish.

Which speaking of Spanish… I found out today that I get to give an 8 minute speech on Oct 31st. Yahoo! Now not only will I be able to say that I stumble through long speeches in my native tongue, but also in my not so 2nd language.

Actually I’m kind of excited about it; challenges can be great learning tools sometimes, ya know. I’m also excited about going to the rec tomorrow( a new challenge). Or at least that’s the plan. I haven’t been yet, although I probably should be going. My shin splints are pretty much gone now I think, and I’m dying to run (on a track mind you, not cross country!), or take a spinning class! (for $3…) Hey some girls are willing to spend that on coffee whereas I am willing to spending it on exercise. Yeah, that makes me feel like a good person inside.

Plus going to the rec gives me an opportunity to ride my bike… which I kinda haven’t done yet. My excuses: I wanted to familiarize myself with the campus first and all my classes are within 10 minutes walking distance and smack dab in the middle of campus= tons of traffic, both pedestrians and cars. The rec is kinda sorta off to the side of everything. If I time it right (as in not during passing period) I should get the road to myself. Heck yes.
