…random happenings style.

I’ve said it once, I’ll say it again. Oh baby, mama’s sore. I feel like I have the right to say this because 1. I’m sore (from exercise) and 2. I’m a mom… sorta, not really.

I have a rat. Bootsie. And the roomie’s got a rat supposedly named Flash, but it shall soon be changed to Bacon if I get my way (did I tell you that her first rat- Dr. Nibbles– died on saturday) R.I.P.Compost. Ok, back to the point. We’ve been letting the rats spend some time together. You know, get to know each other. It’s been a slow process because of some strange activity. Then there’s this:

Um, yah. We’re going to see if the Psychology, Biology, Agriculture, or College of Vet. Med. will buy the rat babies from us. Because I totally got the roommie to agree to one litter (maybe more if her rat doesn’t die in the process) If you didn’t catch all this: my rat is a boy, her rat is a girl. Rats are rodents and rodents like to have lots of rodent babies. Lots of cute rodent babies. But honestly I’m not looking forward to having a pet with junk. Can you say castration. I’m sure that could be one of the perks of having the best vets in KS

Back to why I’m sore. My shoes in Chem lab were bothering me yet again (i.e. another blister). I totally took them off and walked home (across campus) barefoot (first time attempting the barefootedness I want to embrace in public). And again, the exercise… which I cannot talk about no matter how much I twist it to make it sound like my job, even though it is my job. ok, confusing. Just look at the roomie’s shirt in the video and get the picture.

One more thing. I met with my advisor today to pick out my classes for next semester because us special students get to enroll early to make sure we’re earning enough credits toward our degree to comply with the big boss in the sky. I will be taking 16 hours comprised of:

  • Chem 2
  • Advanced Spanish Composition and Grammar 🙂
  • Human Development
  • Into to Stats
  • Basic Nutrition

I’m pretty excited about all of these, except Chem 2, which is why I’m switching out of microbiology and possibly into kinesiology/exercise science with a pre-nursing/physical therapy emphasis. So soon I’ll be super knowledgable about exercise and will be able to tell you things like how you can totally do kettlebell exercises with dumbells and it’s almost the same.


Hey, Hey, Hey!

Except that I’m not fat albert. But I am ready for college- sorta. Despite my lack of motivation to do ANYTHING to do this week, I managed to buy bedding for my dorm room (and some other schtuff). Here’s the checklist (because you know how I like them):

  • quilt
  • electric blanket (but I got this for christmas)
  • sheets x2
  • non name brand “glad ware”
  • microwave
  • blender
  • mattress pad
  • plates, bowls, cups, silverware
  • and something else I’m sure

I’ve still got somethings to buy- like school supplies… can’t forget those. The roommates and I are in the midst of talking about how to furnish the shared areas like the bathroom. It’s going to look pretty plain 😦 but it will be easy on the wallet.

Speaking of the wallet… If the average price for gas this year is $4.50 it will cost me approx $22 per week in gas money to get to and from practice 5 times per week plus 10 miles of liesure driving- like going to Target to walk around and unwind- or buy socks, whichever I need to do at the time.

I’ll probably be posting pictures next week of the things that I have gotten- because I’m super excited about it and need at least something of interest to post.
