**I saw gym boy today!!! I was walking out of my Spanish class about 20 minutes late (talking to the prof. about the outline…) and he was “parked” outside of the building I was walking out of. It was a  nice day so he had the window rolled down in what is not his car (because I totally am a creepy stalker and know what he drives) There was eye contact. Wish there was a wave… but I think he might be in a frat and was with his frat… brothers… is that what you call them??**



Just Another Manic… Saturday. Wish it were Friday?

Although my cold is breaking up, ie my nose is running and i have a cough, I really just don’t feel well still. I want another day in my weekend. Probably the only way that would happen is if we got 2x the ammount of rain we got yesturday and the whole campus woulld be under like 5 bajillion feet of water. Not really.

But it did rain an incredible amount yesturday. I walked through puddles that covered the tops of my feet (while wearing flip flops- cuz it was warm out). My hair was absolutley drenched almost all day. In the morning it got wet, shower=wet, walking to class it got wet. I guess I should have gotten that umbrella from my car sooner than last night, when I went out to buy gas…

Before watching She’s the Man with some girls on my floor. Thats a cute movie. You should watch it if you have the chance. I think it’s about to be added to the entrance requirements here, that you have to watch this movie if youre a girl, right along with that 21 ACT score (out of 36).

And I did sleep in this morning. Totally skipped breakfast. Actually I had a cliff Z bar (my new fav. granola bars) then went over to a friend’s house to watch The Holiday and have lunch. We ended up going to the farmers market too, where I bought some apples. I got 7 medium sized apple for $1.25. Im totally going back there next weekend for my produce fix.

Now I need a nap. I am exhausted and it’s almost dinner time. Going to go take care of some basic human needs: sleep, food, and knowledge (studying for chem!)



It came and went

I woke up this morning and lazily got ready for my day. I did the usual and then added the finishing touches to my packing toward the end of my routine. At about 10, we left the house. Mom was with me, Dad was driving the minivan with all of my stuff in it. two hours later, we’re in *edited out*. First stop:lunch.

We went to wendy’s. I got my fav: southwest taco salad. it’s got chili in it! While in line we met a retired professor. Dr. L. He was very nice. We talked about his car ( and ’34 ford- since we saw him driving it) and about him working on his new house. We talked a bit about me. (it was a long line) Then, what caught me off guard: since his new house is by the boathouse, he said to just drop on by his house any time- just to say hi. This is part of why I chose *edited out* . People are much friendlier over here.

Even people that are not from the area are nice. When I was checking in with my RA, a kid from h.s. walked up to me and asked if I needed any help unloading stuff. We knew each other- but never really talked much the past 4 years.

So it’s now 1 o’clock. We worked on moving my stuff in. (and i got my id card from the union somewhere in there) It took quite a while. But everything fits!

We make a walmart run. get some stuff. get back. tell my parents bye. no tears. put sutff away. have some spaghetti-o’s (with meatballs!) and a banana- separate, of course. put some more stuff away. called a friend. interupted her prayer meeting- sorry. got ready. went out for a bite. came back. made plans for tomorrow… all day tomorrow. realized that someone forgot to lock the door. turned the laptop on. spent an hour trying to get *edited out* to realize my computer was safe. now im here trying to hurry things up.

i have plenty of pictures. you’ll see some soon. maybe tomorrow. maybe in 5 years. (when i’m outta here?!)



My First Real Trip to Kohl’s

One fish

Two fish

Red fish

Blu… backpack!

Sorry, I couldn’t help but use the fishies as a shoe in to my new backpack when I saw this shirt. (thanks mom for hiding modeling!)

Now what gangsta wouldn’t want this Tshirt?

While at Kohl’s I got my school shopping done. They had an awesome clearance section- which had just the things I was looking for: (jersey?) knit skirts. I also got some tanks to wear at practice- they were $2.80 each. I know, I’m pretty awesome at finding deals.

I also got a new laptop today- since the pink dell ain’t workin so great. You can see it next to my new baby amongst my new computer garbage:

Yeah, it’s an HP. All my friends but one got HP’s. They all like theirs. Therefore: I got a new HP instead of another silly dell computer. Haha, it was very funny: Dad said, “Now you shouldnt have problems with this one. At least I hope.” Then I thought my baby didn’t come with a charger. Called Dad and bestbuy to complain. Then I found it. Then I couldn’t find my SD card slot. Called Dad to say it didn’t have one (it’s crucial to blogging you know!) then he found it. Then I tried to put in my extended batteru, but I couldn’t get it to fit. Had Dad work on it. Finally I was right: it was the wrong battery lol. Now I gotta figure out how to get the extended battery when it’s not in the stores yet since this is such a new computer and I leave town in a week- and its currently on sale for $60 off.

Now all I’m concerned about is loading the *edited out* security thingy. I might win an iPod if I do this before school! I’m all up for free stuff and deals so if you ever feel like sending me stuff, go right ahead.

*picture edited out*

Sorry for the long post. I think that it could be mainly attributed to my outstanding humor, so your eyes shouldn’t fall out just yet. I’m off to watch more swimming/ get ready for bed. I’m tired and have a busy day ahead of me tomorrow. It will be my last saturday in town and last day of work/ saturday morning water aerobics.



I Don’t Know What to Call This Post

So, the sisters started school today. Haha, sucks for them. Not only do I start school a week later, I get out 2 weeks earlier, plus I get to meet cute college boys!

Yeah, I’m in a bit of a better mood tonight. I don’t know why. I’ve got plenty of things I could be upset at. I’m guessing it might have something to do with me looking forward to going to the gym tomorrow. Hopefully I will see gym boy tomorrow (although I doubt I will). I want to talk to him about college- he’s going to *edited out* too you know! …but he doesn’t know that I know that. Maybe I need to back off on my stalker tendencies.

Speaking of stalkerishness… I went to the Ali Kemp self defense class, Take Defense, last night. I took O. and met 2 of my friends there. A. was wearing the same *edited out* shirt as I was. I guess she has pretty good taste, huh? M. thought it was funny, she’s going to *edited out* as well- but she didn’t wear her crazy awesome shirt. My favorite part of the class was hitting th B.O.B. bag (the fake guys- that feel like a person when you hit them). At first I kept missing his face. Then I really started trying to hit him- I almost knocked it over. It was very empowering. Oh, and my 2nd favorite part of class- pretty much throwing O. across the room -inadvertantly of course! 😉 .



Mimi’s!

I went to Mimi’s Cafe last night with the girls. After being ignored by our waiter for nearly 35 minutes we got a really cool waitress. She even took a group picture of us- but I prefer the one above (and since I’m the boss around here, this is the one I’ll post). Mostly we just caught up, since we haven’t really hung out all summer.

After Mimi’s we went to the park/skate park and played, like we used to do. Last night we hung out around the skating portion of the park, mainly inside of the bowl. That was super fun. You have to slide in- no jumping unless you’re insane. To get out, you have to have a running start, unless you’re me and can reach the ledge w/o trying.

Oh, I think I should add that I changed out of my dress before going to the park. Don’t want it to get dirty do we?

We stayed until about 10:30 and then the cops came. They reminded us what time the park closed, 30 minutes ago, and we rolled on outa there.

I have to say last night was much more fun than today was. After a grouling (sp??) water aerobics class filled with lap work I headed to work where I got to stare at 10 lbs (or maybe 15 lbs- it’s 3 weeks worth) of invoices i needed to file for 8 hours. Um, yah, didn’t finish those. Maybe next week… if I can get to them, of course. What? Last week’s my last week you say? Hmm, there’s not much I can do about that 😉



Why I Love…

Work! I love my job. I’ve said it before. I’d give you a link, but I can’t find one and the T-storm is rapidly approaching.

I love my work because my co-workers a super nice. Miss A brought me this today. I had made a comment earlier about how much I liked it and she said once she got a new bag she’d give this one to me. Today when I came in she handed it to me! What a sweetie. (Oh, and Dad’s modeling it for me 🙂 )

I also love work because every once and a while a good prank is pulled. I am going to explain it verbally since thats how I roll (and it means you can see my new haircut- albeit a week old).

and here’s the piece of work itself!
