And I totally lost a couple pounds this last week just by dropping down to one bowl of cereal and cutting down on the sweets. But with the above menu I was able to maintain my weight. Aren’t you jealous??

 

**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??**

Interesting Morning/Weekend

Nasty rain makes people do funny things, I’ve decided… like pull weeds at 7:30 in the morning, bad weather included. know, it sounds strange but I can’t really ellaborate other than saying it was fun. Yes, I just said that I had fun pulling weeds. But it is a little bit different than when your parents tell you to- so don’t expect anything fancy when I come back home, mom.

… because I went home this weekend. First trip home from college. Guess what I had for dinner my first night home: 2 lean pockets and a 2 serving blue bunny ice cream dish (which I guess was better than what I had last night when I got back: fruit/yogurt, small salad and chocolate cake). I probably shouldn’t complain about the food though since mom did my laundry, bought me clothes (holy smokes i found jeans at wal mart that were long enough and were somewhat proportionate to my huge thighs), bought me random items, cleaned my car (vacuum, rainX, windows), put new windshield wipers on my car, and filled my gas tank (gas was $2.99 !!!)

It was my first big drive by myself, and I didn’t die. The way home was easy-peasy. I hit rush hour traffic in Topeka, KS but I let people pass me and realize that there were cars going just as slow in front of me so it was all good. I payed the tolls just fine too. But the way back. Dang, son. Let’s just start off with saying one of the reasons I got new windshield wipers and rainX was because of the storm that was between me and the university. There were points at which I was going 50 in a 70 zone because visibility/ traffic was that bad. Add to that the semis that were following way too close and changing langes/making walls across the 3 lane interstate sporatically.

I should probably add that I went to my gym twice. Once on Friday, and again on Saturday morning. On friday they didn’t make me exchange my keys for a locker because they know me/ my keys were attatched to my wallet. There was a new guy there (probably to replace gym boy) and he was freaking out when Jason told me I didn’t have to turn my keys in. He was all like “who is she that she doesn’t have to turn her keys in?!” and I’m all like “I’m important around here. Didn’t you get the memo??” not really. But those thoughts were totally flying around the room. And one last thing (because this is getting long) at water aerobics I was the life of the party; ‘cuz I’m cool like that.

Now it’s time for my mid-morning nap.

If you could only know how guilty I have felt not being able to update you on my extraordinarily fascinating life! I feel like I have abandoned each and every one of you for the last week or so due to the recent business of everything. Well, I am back and I have a few things to share (and a lot that I can’t say- but really really want to!)

Let’s do a recap of the last couple of days:

  • Friday: Move in day! Whahoo! I woke up at the norm: 8:30 and got ready like any other day. Mom eventually asked me to get moving. We packed everything that I had been hoarding in my room into the minivan and left for college. 2 hours later we’re in town and having lunch at Wendy’s. We met a retired prof. there… I think I’ve told you about this already! Anyways- I am going to try out his church this Sunday. After lunch we got checked in and all then worked on moving stuff in. Lots of stuff- but not as much as some people (omgosh!)
  • Saturday: Hung out with friends and moved stuff around. Just a very boring day in general. Well, I guess I did go to a church BBQ. It was small and we played some cool games… I feel like I’ve told you this already too! … but I’m too lazy to check.
  • Sunday: Got some meetings to go to. That I can’t tell you about… other than that they seemed to take up my day. Hung out with the roomie. She’s pretty cool (Hi!!!) But there’s kinda a time warp thing that happens when we go places together. It took us 30 minutes to walk to a meeting today. 30- isn’t walking around campus supposed to be easy?
  • Monday: 1st day of classes! Cool beans. Chem 1, Gen Psych, and Spanish 3- all from 10:30-2:20. Chem should be easy for a while. When I took it in h.s. I wanted to be a chemical engineer… not so much anymore, but I still have to take the class. In psych, I sit with at least one of my “co-workers”. By now I have seen about 10 people I went to h.s. with. Went to the book store (BUSY BUSY BUSY!)  tried to read some boring intro chem stuff and fell asleep.
  • Tuesday: After looking through the books that I got yesturday I decided to switch into Spanish 4- because I had already learned everything in Spanish 3 according to the syllabus and book. We ended up in a bit of a crisis though- I dropped down to 11 hours by doing that. We fixed is ASAP though. It’s all good now. This afternoon- since I don’t have classes on Tues and Thurs now (!!!) I went to Best Buy to exchange mi computadora porque the harddrive was bad. (I know- it’s not just me being picky, things are actually wrong with these computers) Cute Best Buy Boy- “CBBB” helped me out.
  • Wednesday: Went to the 1st day of real class and took real notes. I know, isn’t that cool? The Spanish prof talked a million miles an hour in Spanish. I was a bit intimidated at 1st but towards the end of class I was catching about 75-90% of what she said. Her hand motions really helped. I am going to learn SO much in that class- I’m super excited about what all will happen through that class. Oh and saw CBBB while walking to my 2nd class 😉 (haven’t seen gym boy yet 😦 ) By now I thought that I had seen everybody from my h.s. that was coming here…
  • Thursday: I was wrong- I saw 3 or 4 more people I hadn’t seen yet on campus. My roommates are beginning to wonder how many people i know. It’s gotten to the point where the people I’m seeing are like- wow, didn’t know you were coming here!- and the count is probably close to 30 or so… My 2nd day off. Woke up, did exciting stuff, came back, showered, studied, walked 20min to get my bike pass, walked 15min back. Studied, Went to A’s room with my suitemate. Then we went to lunch. I came back to A’s place and studied. Then M showed up- it’s her room too. We grabbed AH and went to the Union- where we saw CBBB again 😉 and a guy that looked like Sunshine/ sunnywhoever from Remember the Titans- the longer blonde hair. It was awkward- I looked over in AH’s general direction- eye contact, awkward! looked away-looked back to see what AH was doing- eye contact. Ok my story is done. I gotta go grab dinner, study, and do laundry/read. Then I will probably watch TV in the study room 2 doors down the hall- cuz it has cable. yeah, yeah.


OK- Let’s Go!

After my wonderful workout this morning, where I ran for a total of 30 minutes (a personal best), I drove by work to pick up my paycheck and bought some gas (for a low, low price of $3.79!!) before heading home. When I got home I started packing for my weekend trip to Oklahoma!

B has yet another basketball tourney where I will be in attendence. According to the parents of other teams, we are the team to beat. I think that’s a nice place to be in.

Back to me. This hotel has a cool set up. Since they don’t have a “little gym” inside the hotel, you can go workout at the gym down the road, Body Works. We drove past it, it’s a hole in the wall of a strip mall. I’m not expecing much. I guess I should be happy for something, rather than being left empty-handed. (Although one of the main reasons I go to the gym is to see gym-boy. Who cares about meaningful conversation- nothing matters once you see those baby blues- at least I think that’s what color his eyes are)

Ugh, my “t” key doesn’t want to work. Really, I’ve been left unsatisfied by this computer. It is slow, it jumbles up things on the screen, the touch volume control hasn’t worked well at all, I hate vista, and the extended battery doesn’t last the 4.5 hours it’s supposed to. I’m pissed off and I want to go to bed. Hopefully my w/o at that “gym” will cheer me up (??).

Watching his always cheers me up (but I won’t be watching it because I want some shut eye!)

**I wish that boy at the front desk would stop trying to make eye contact with me. He’s too short for me… And I’m cranky**



Diez Cosas

Since I am kindasortareallyextremely bored and tired I will give you a list of 10 things you probably don’t know about me. My mom doesn’t even know all of these (hi mom!).

  1. I really like Beatles music- although I haven’t listened to all of it and can’t distinguish it easily from other groups while on the radio…
  2. I talk to myself in Spanish when I’m tired or bored, making up pretend conversations with people i know
  3. I might want to marry gym-boy… but it would help if he talked to me more. I had a “spanish conversation” with “him” after not seeing him at the gym today
  4. **edited out**
  5. **edited out**
  6. I went to a private Christian school through 8th grade (actually two, because I moved before 2nd grade) and I’ve gone to 2 public high schools- because I moved again during the 1st semester of my freshman year.
  7. I love to sneeze- this one was inspired by a recent sneeze 🙂 . I used to make myself sneeze when I was younger.
  8. I have clothes that I wear from 5th grade. In fact, I’m wearing some shorts from that era right now haha.
  9. My parents made me start sports. And I was kicking and screaming all the way. I had to choose from volleyball (minimal running), basketball (quite a bit of running), and track (all running as far as I was concerned). I chose volleyball in 6th grade. Played for my schools until through halfway through my junior year season (yeah, remember that coach i mentioned in #5 ((she was truely out to get me))- I quit the team) and then during my freshman year i had my knee scoped so couldn’t play for most of that. Played club vb 8th, 9th, 10th, and 11th. Played summer vb league a couple years. Did throwing with track in 8th and 10th grade. Now after my reading my lengthy (??) sports history…
  10. Today I went 20 mi in spinning and then ran 1 mi and I’ve never felt stronger. I’m pooped now, but hey- I really accomplished something today. In fact, I’m starting to feel happy with the way my body looks. Yeah, I’m no skinny minnie, but I’m strong and healthy and beautiful (i can tell the last one by all of the boys flocking to me lately 😉 ).


Mumble Jumble

I need to give some credit to Crabby McSlacker for this portion of my post… even though I was already thinking about posting about it today…

We totally got an AC unit in our spinning room at the gym today. Well, we probably got it yesturday, because it wasn’t there on monday. But gues what was there on monday?? Fans. Yes, three of them. Praise the Lord almighty! I have been told that it has reached 90* in there recently. It probably doesn’t help that it is located in a “renovated” raquetball court/room. They closed off the top because it was too noisy… and people were getting hit with raquetballs :/ . (no gym-boy today; it almost made me cry 😦 )

As for the rest of my day- It was pretty low key, but still pretty awesome. After an intense spinning session I went to the library- yes I was still stinky… I picked up my books that were on hold: Anne of the Island and some Beverly Lewis amish book in the Abram’s Daughters series. Let’s just say I’m stoked to start reading these. Came home, talked with mom, had lunch, went to wal-mart and the dollar store, came home, snacked, napped, blogged, ate dinner, talked with my grandpa and aunt, and back to blogging.

As for my snack… well, one of them. I had a slice of watermelon.

As you can see, I like to eat my watermelon with a grapefruit spoon. It’s the only fun way to enjoy watermelon, you know. In the top left corner you can see my new toothpaste from wal-mart and O’s dramamine for her bus ride to and from summer church camp coming up here soon.

I can’t remember if ‘ve said this yet, but my birthday is on Sunday- it’s the big 18!!! OMG, can’t wait. I’m talking with the parents about going to a KC T-bones game. Don’t know if thats what we’ll do or not. For dinner: something REALLY ethnic.

**As for food, I’m thinking of starting a food diary type blog, kinda like Kath has… but mine wont be as good. I’m sure it will be interesting as I have a situation that not many other bloggers will have: *edited out* trying to lose weight while eating res. hall food. **
