If a dog can feel sexy. I guess I really don't know.
Anyway, I was sick this entire past week. It sucked something major. It all started out with a stuffy nose, then it slowly proceeded to throw up and nastiness. I missed two days of classes and am currently two and a half chapters behind in my psych reading. No biggie though, right? Hahhaha. I honestly just cannot wait for this school year to be finished. I get the feeling that after freshmen year it gets a little easier to adjust to the new college life.
Next weekend I'm coming home (again) for my little sister's prom. It should be a fun ordeal, as she has purchased this really pretty dress. And okay, that chick is not my sister. Unless you chop her legs off at the knee and color her brown, then it could be questionable. I do love the dress though, I think I would have picked it for myself had I been going to prom again. It'll be exciting for her to get her hair all done and all the jazz.
Last night, I saw the movie I Love You, Man. Gooood movie. It was rather funny. I went to it with my sister and my two cousins (16 and 14 year-olds). I believe they all enjoyed it as well. Lot of good quotes from that movie, definitely.
Okay, speaking of movies... would you like to hear my top movies to see for this up and coming summer? (The ones that I know of anyway.) I think you do, so here they are in no particular order:
Night At The Museum 2: Battle Of The Smithsonian
Disney Pixar's Up
Land of the Lost
Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
Now, here are some others that sound like they have quite the potential for being ones I will see:
Angels and Demons
The Taking Of Pelham 123
That's all for now. I will try to keep you updated on how those movies turn out. That is, if I have the money to attend all these! Oh, but I forget that there's a new, cheap theater in town! Ohhh the glory.
Well, I suppose that's enough for now. I should shower and maybe visit some family while I'm in town.

I'm currently not accomplishing my English outline for the huge research paper I have to do. Okay, not that huge. But, it's six pages and my topic is the psychological effects of divorce on children. Yeeahhhh. It's okay though, I can handle it. I actually love writing papers as long as I can write them about what I want to write about. Anyway, I'm supposed to have an outline done for it because I have to meet with my teacher for a "conference". Should be good.
I love spring. Sometimes I think I use the word "love" too often. Some people say, "OHMYGOSH, I LOOOVEEE PUPPIES!!" I don't care for that. I like to switch up my adjectives. So actually what I wanted to say was, I have a strong inclination toward spring. (I seriously hope that makes sense cause I just looked it up in the thesaurus.) ---Insert picture of thesaurus here. Sorry, it's not letting me put up pictures right now.---
Oh. I'm supposed to let you know that I'm talking to the most kick ass person right now, and no it is not Aerosmith...it's B-Ritta. That's her little shout-out.
V8's new juice, V-Fusion is the most amazing juice ever. I was very skeptical on trying this juice, but it is absolutely delicious. You'll have to look for it in stores. It has a full serving of both fruits and vegetables, but it doesn't taste like veggies at all! I've seen three flavors so far: pomegranate berry, strawberry banana, and peach mango. I've only had the first two cause I'm not a fan of peach, but it's probably good.
So.. I'm thinking about adding another major??? CAN THIS BE POSSIBLE? So far I've already got a double major in Journalism/Mass Communications and English Education. The other major I'm considering is Spanish. It'll only be an extra class a semester... but I don't know. I think I'm going to study abroad next summer in Spain, so that'll definitely help my Spanish-speaking skills! I can't help it that I absolutely adore that language. It's weird. Don't worry, I know.
Uhhmm... so that's pretty much it for today. I'm really hyper and I should get going to use this energy to get stuff done. Like that outline. AH!

Oh, yeah I have a test in it tomorrow. FML.
Anyway, on a better note, tomorrow is the start of the weekend. I'm doing a service project on Saturday at a softball field, which should be fun. I actually don't mind doing volunteer work and would love to do more. What I really would enjoy would be volunteering at the Humane Society. I was going to do that this year but I found out that you have to commit for a year and I don't know if they'd let me do that since I'm not here in the summer. It'd probably be worth a shot though. I love animals, especially dogs. I used to work at a dog breeding (coughpuppyfarmcough) and my favorite part was the puppy room. And I don't even say that to be one of those girls that's all like, "OHMYGOSH, HE'S SOOOOOO CUUTEEE!" They're annoying. Mostly cause they have super high-pitched voices that makes me want to physically take out their voice boxes.
Today we talked about euthanasia in my developmental psychology class, it was crazy. We were talking about morality and Kohlberg's six stages of moral development. I don't know how I feel about euthanasia. On one hand, if somebody is suffering and they know that they can't take it anymore, I could see why someone would do it. But what if they found a cure for whatever it is they had the next week? Then you have to deal with that guilt. I dunno.. it's quite the touchy subject and I think that's actually all I wanna say about it.
Just throwing this out there, but I love sparkling water. Really, who was smart enough to create tasty, bubbly water?? I tell ya who... Torbern Bergman. Yeah, just wikied that shiz. It tastes so delicious though. And it tricks me into thinking I'm drinking sparkling grape juice (also the shiz) because of the carbonation. Yummmy. I guess it can cause dental erosion, but really since when do people care about that? I'm thinking about going all George Washington with some nice, wooden teeth. Yeeahhhhh.
Uhhhmmm what else can I tell you?? I don't know that there is a whole lot else going on today. I absolutely can't wait for summer and some freedom from classes. I was thinking about taking summer classes but honestly? I can't take anymore classes right now, nor in the summer. I'm going to take it nice and easy.
The other day I tripped going up the stairs.
Yeah. I'm one of those girls. Oh, of course it was in the library where it's extremely quiet. What is up with that?!?!
I had a spanish test today and I kicked its face into the next millennium.
Okay I'm rambling now, BYEEE.

The summer job hunt is on. It's so sucky that the economy is down the tube because I really need a job. I think I'm going to return to my job from last summer at the town newspaper, but I need another job on the side. For that, I'm thinking about applying to do custodial work at the high school. Hopefully that works out cause it'd be super nice to earn extra cash for college.
Man I wish I had some ice cream right now. I GOT NEW SHOES. This is exciting for me. The last time I got a good new pair of shoes that cost a decent amount of money was like... two years ago when I got my Converse. Mom must have been feeling a little crazy because she let me get a new pair of Converse (which are sweet) and a pair of Nikes (which I haven't owned since probably the eighth grade). Since I'm blessed with narrow fit (unlike the rest of my family), I can fit into pretty much any shoe. So finding them isn't so much of a problem. My mom, on the other hand, has a terrible time trying to find ones that are wide enough. It's not like she has duck feet, they're.. indian feet, as she calls them. Whatever, we'll go with that. I guess Nike makes shoes for people with indian feet because they're unnaturally wide. Go figure. Nike does everything.
Wow, that's enough talking for today. Gotta try to accomplish some spanish homework!

Me on a bike = bad news bears.
Oh, this is the walkway where the girl narrowly avoided death --
Do you know what's upsetting? I NEVER receive any mail. I don't know about the rest of you, but getting mail is like my favorite thing in the whole world. (Unless it's a bill... or something else that has to be paid.) The only stuff I ever get is from the university. Screw that. Well, some of the stuff they send is useful, but most of the time... not really. I just throw that junk in the garbage ASAP.
Yeahh.. I'm pretty proud.
What else can I tell you?? Did I tell you I had fun with Britta? I think so. Chad and Megan are coming to visit on Friday and I'm soooooo pumped. It'll be one crazy weekend, that's fo sho.
I have so much homework to do today, it's insane. I should probably start that.
But I think I'm going to take a nap first. :)
Goodbye all! Thanks for reading. Hopefully they don't bore you to death...

Gah. Good news though, Josh is bringing my back to campus! Now I get to cruise around and hit innocent students. What a joy.
I'm not looking forward to class tomorrow. I have a crap ton of homework to do tonight, and I have to deal with U.S. Bank. Ick.
I did have an enjoyable time at Britta's though! I got to see cousin Aaron and just chill, which is always nice. I cannot wait for next weekend when Chad and Megan visit! It will be completely awesome.
I just have to keep reminding myself... less than two weeks until spring break.... thank heaven.
That's all for now, if I've got time later I'll make sure to add another post cause this one was pretty dang boring.

9:38 AM -- awaken from a late night slumber then a nice shower
10:28 AM -- decide to skip my 11 o'clock class to pack for BRITTA'S!
11:00 AM -- take a vitamin that I was supposed to take with food.. but without the food part
11:51 AM -- walk across campus to my only class of the day and feel the after effects of taking that pill without food
12:08 PM -- watch Religulous in my English 250 class
1:00 PM -- walk to the MU and eat lunch
2:07 PM -- wait for the bus to get my car
2:43 PM -- leave for Britta's!
4:20 PM -- arrive and have a PAR-TAY!
I realize that was a long-winded explanation of my day, but you're the one reading the blog, so that's your problem.
I'm trying to think if there's any big dilemma I had today. OH! So my cousin Aaron, who goes to the same college as Britta, would like me to stop and visit. But guess what? Cousin Aaron likes to not answer his phone or any text messages. FINALLY he called me back after four hours of attempted contact. I guess I can forgive him though cause he was at an event.
My car is a POS. Just throwing that out there. The speedometer shakes when it goes past 60 mph. Oh, and you can pull the keys out of the ignition while you're driving it.
Pretty sure you're not supposed to be able to do that. Oh well.
I guess it's really not that bad of a car because... well I didn't have to pay for it and the only thing I do have to pay for is gas and occasionally other fixes it needs. As long as it runs, I'm one happy son-of-a-gun.
Hmmm... what else can I tell you all? How about my obsession with post-its and chapstick? As you may have noticed, my URL is chapstick and post-its. I use chapstick everyday, every hour of my life. It is basically an addiction.
They tried to get me to go to rehab, but I said no, no, no.
(This is the kind I currently own.)
And post-its? They're just wonderful. They're absolutely great for organization and remembering things. Things like... calling my mom and dad. Or meetings. Or they're also good for remembering how much money I owe my roommate, she loves that.
So, there are my stories for today. Now I'm going to go watch Step Brothers with Britta.

I hope this doesn't let you down, but I don't know how wonderful this little blog is going to be. We're just trying it out.
Anywho, let's start off with why I decided to start a blog. Basically it went something like this:
Me: "Should I create a blog?"
Me: "Ehhhh... okay."
And a baby blog is born. I guess my goal in writing about my silly life is to entertain you all. And to kinda keep track of the stuff I do from day to day. Oh and I apologize in advance if I have any grammatical errors, feel free to correct me at any time.
Here's how my day was today:
8:30 AM -- wake up and cry
9:40 AM -- eat a bowl of Honey Nut Cheerios
10:00 AM -- go to Spanish
11:40 AM -- eat lunch
12:25 PM -- get on a bus with Luke and Mike because it was raining
12:40 PM -- sit in my Social Foundations of American Education class
1:46 PM -- walk to Curtiss Hall for my Developmental Psychology class
3:16 PM -- walk back to the dorm and do jack squat for the rest of the evening
Okay, so here's the thing about the rain. I love the rain, except when it's cold rain. At the beginning of the year, I made it a point to purchase this ever-so-cute zebra print umbrella at Target. Little did I know, that umbrella was absolute CRAP. It turns out that the ever-so-cute zebra umbrella likes to flap around in the wind and not even protect me from the rain at all. So on Monday, I went to Target (my favorite store, BTW) to purchase a nice, sturdy umbrella. This one is even more pretty than the zebra one! It's orange with purple and red daisies (see left). Trust me, it's glorious. I was looking forward to using this new umbrella when it rained and was especially excited when I found out it was supposed to rain Thursday (today). Well, I'm leaving for lunch and trying to decide if the rain fooled me into thinking it was coming today; therefore I did not grab my new umbrella. Well guess what? IT FREAKING RAINED AND I HAD TO USE THE CRAPPY UMBRELLA. Eff that business, right? That's what I said.
That was my big dilemma for the day.
Oh, except my roommate left for Iowa City tonight and decided to set her full bag of garbage right underneath my bed. What a jerk.
I'm telling you, this is my daily life. It's not exactly what some may call, "riveting", but I find it funny.
Oh, and I'm going to try to put a website link to things I find worthwhile.
