take pills according to the directions

Hmmm... what's new in the life of Ivy today you ask? Not a whole lot. Here was my schedule for today:

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 just saw my son use a bicycle as a weapon."

And here's your link for today:

numero uno

Hello to my new blogging friends. Here is my first blog. I bet you're all excited and stuff.

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 Cu
rtiss Hall for my Developmental Psychology class
3:16 PM -- walk b
ack to the dorm and do jack squat for the rest of the evening

Okay, so here's th
e 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.
