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!)


128 minutes

Yeah, 2 hours and 8 minutes. What took that long, you ask. Getting my internet to work. Honestly, it would have taken MUUUUCH less time had Jefferson from Coasta Rica not been so talkative. He was very nice mind you. Even inviting me to stay at his house when i go there (?!!!!!!?!). We talked about/in Spanish (my love and his first language- apparently I have a good accent), movies( he has 110+ of them), books, religion, Costa Rica, my job, his job, my computer being wierd (me thinking: oh great). Needless to say, he was much more fun to talk to than India girl with Dell.

Well, I should probably tell you about my spinning class this afternoon. Actually it was an RPM class- but a rather mild one in my opinion. I haven’t been to this class in about 3 months and figured i should go to say goodbye/thank to the instructor L. L. has an interesting attitude. For one he likes to drink. Oh, but it’s for his heart, mind you. So since he has a bit of an attitude I tend to speak up a bit more in that class. It was fun to see everyone again though.

After my spin class I went for a little run. i wanted to run for 30min but only accomplished 5min. Why? Because the new shoes that are supposed to be good for me hurt me like none other! My achilles tendonitis from junior year has returned. So has knee pain. Oh and the shinsplints are still there. So you may be wondering how i even made it 5 minutes with such discomfort (because it was pretty bad). It was all because of the basketball game going on beneath the track (since I run above and around the track). I can’t just stop running when I have their attention lol- as well as the attention from the boys on the track who were showing off LOL. Which I think this is all really funny because 1. i was wearing no make up at all 2. i felt gross 3. i smelled gross 4. my hair was in lopsided pigtails… and the list could go on.

Wanna know why I felt gross today. that’s a good topic for tomorrow. I can say a lot about it. And since tomorrow is Tuesday- we can have a TMI Tuesday again! YAY!!!

As i sit here writing, the Lizzie Mcguire Movie is finishing up on the Disney channel. This came out somewhere between my 8th and 9th grade year- so 2004?? may it was ’05. Dunno. All I know is that I like it. Actually I just like the part where she hangs out with her Italian bf and sings- I could care less about where she realizes that the boy of her dreams was there all along (her bff, soon to be bf).  Here’s my fav part of the movie- not in its entirity, but close…

And here’s something I DON’T like. Well, I’ve never tried it- but don’t plan on it. This has been one of my worst fears for many years. It’s the reason I freak out when someone brushes past me in lakes. **edited out*

Check it Out!

Look at me, I’m 18! The day started with me opening presents (!!!) my fav? the nike hrm. super cool if ya ask me.


We had got to go to church this morning. I chose an earlier service, I hate getting home at 1:30pm. Anyways… that afternoon- I went to see the new BATMAN movie. All this talk about heathy-boy being crazy good- it’s all true. it was super cool if ya ask me.

Hillary came over after that and brought me the balloons noted above and a mini cheesecake, since she knows i love cheesecake! what a friend, huh? she’s super cool if ya ask me.

for my birthday dinner, we went to my fav restaurant in KC. but you have to go to my new food blog to hear about it. it’s super cool if ya ask me.

After all that we went to HyVee and I bought some lottery scratchers tickets. I came sooo close to winning $4000 I could smell it, but alas, i didnt win anything. that’s not cool. but buying lottery tickets: super cool if ya ask me.

**go to TTG (thattallgirl) Fuel, please!**

Oh my- that’s all I can say… lo siento para no escribiendo mas noticias ayer (Sorry for not writing [posts] yesturday) (need to keep up my spanish you know 😉 )

it has been crazy with work and hanging with friends, grocery shopping and dealing with the power going out. Let me start with yesturday:

Went to work, although I’d rather be in Italy drinking a margarita on the beach. Got home and cooked dinner. I felt like I was cooking for a boyfriend. Although I wouldn’t know what that would be like since I’ve never had one. Anyways… Cooked din din for my friend H and me. I made mac and cheese, grilled chicken,  green beans and salad. I could show you some pictures but that would be boring.

H and I watched the Darjeeling Limited. Goodness it’s cast had Owen Wilson, Adrien Brody, Bill Murray, and Natalie Portman to name a few. It was a cute movie- and it’s at RedBox- thats means 1 dolla baby, or free if you get a large soda at Mickey D’s.

I went to bed pooped and woke up and had to go back to work. Get home from work, made pizza for my friend M and me. From dinner we went to Bed Bath and Beyond and then to Target to look at college stuff. Got home and the power’s out. Lovely, no internet.

Well, that was my last two days. Hope you enjoyed reading about as much as I enjoyed living it. And does anyone have any “wierd-things” suggestions like nail clippers or fabric softener that I might forget without your help?
