food science SUCKS

Guess what? FOOD SCIENCE SUCKS. It's possibly the worst class I've ever taken in my whole entire life. Seriously! I'm not even being over-dramatic. There are not many classes outside of the math area that I complain about. Never will I voluntarily take such a class again.

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.

kit kats and tv

Kit Kats are the sustenance of life. At least my sustenance of life. I was craving one so bad today that I had to have my sister pick me up one from Movie Time. Those Kit Kats aren't even as fresh as the gas station ones! That just goes to show how desperate I was. I also annihilated a bag of Funyuns -- some of the best chips to ever grace the planet. And for those readers who don't know what Funyuns are, shame on you. Anyway, here's a picture to let you know what you're missing.

Right now I'm watching The Secret Life of the American Teenager. I've never even watched an episode. It's pretty decent. I thought it was gonna be all corny and stuff, but it's alright. There sure are a lot of teenage pregnancy TV shows and movies out. Juno... this show... Okay.. guess I can't really think of any other ones but it seems like there's a crap ton. Oh.. a commercial for the new show, Sophie, came on. That looks like a dumb show. My show of choice on the ABC Family network is Greek. I'm obsessed with that show. For those of you who don't know what it is, I encourage you to watch it on March 30th at seven PM for the new season premiere. It's more of a chick thing, but who knows.. guys may like it too. One of my favorite characters is Dale. He's the super religious guy who makes sure his roommate, Rusty, knows that Jesus Christ himself is sitting on his shoulders everywhere he goes. Hahahah, if I knew some quotes off the top of my head I'd shoot them off for you. You gotta watch for yourself. Granted, it's probably not quite accurate of college life, but it's entertaining at least.

My favorite show of all-time is definitely Gilmore Girls. I love the witty banter and sarcastic remarks that the writers incorporate into the show. I own every season on DVD except season four. I plan to wait until it goes on sale for $15.00 as it often does. It's on at four o'clock everyday on ABC Family, so WATCH IT.

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!

spring break


Excitement is in the air. Especially for those who have decided to visit a tropical location for their spring break. That does not include me. My plans are to go home and R-E-L-A-X. I'm going to do my homework straight away so I don't have to think about it, then I'm going to curl up with my books that I've been wanting to read. Summer People and Shelter Me are the ones that I'm going to read. My sister also wants me to read Q and A (Slumdog Millionaire). I'm very pumped to read these and can hopefull get it done by the end of the week!

Anywhozzile, things have been going decently well for me. Megan and Chad visited last weekend, so that was incredibly fun and I was VERY glad to see them. We had a ball, then they had to leave Sunday around one. Stupid Daylight Savings Time screwed me over on sleep. I wasn't happy. It didn't help that we were hanging with the boys all weekend and most of them were sick. So not only did I contract sickness and was out of class for two days, Josh is sick and Chad is also getting ill. I hope they take the necessary precautions to avoid terrible sickness. Mine was pretty bad. I had a sore throat and felt like spewing yesterday. Not fun at all.

Yesterday Katie picked up my Bare Minerals foundation for me, as I couldn't get into town. That was nice of her (if you didn't know, Katie is my roomie). I love that stuff. I don't exactly love the price... Good foundation is good foundation though! My aunt got it for me a couple of years ago and I loved it. But I ran out and couldn't get to a Sephora anywhere near me, so I settled for the Sonia Kashuk brand. Good stuff too, but just not the same.

Wow.. who knew I could go on about make-up for so long? Not me.

Have I told you that I want to intern at Seventeen magazine? Well.. I do. I shot them an e-mail yesterday asking what all I need to do to prepare for applying for it. Hopefully they get back to me soon... it'd be my absolute dream to intern there! I'm going to work my tail off so I have a better chance.
Okay, more late.. I gotta go eat!

naps and illness

I'm not sick. But I was this morning. And because of that I missed my eight o'clock class. Well.. I made sure to e-mail my teacher before class and I called the her office. I guess I need a doctor's note though. Guess what? I DON'T HAVE A DOCTOR'S NOTE. Because guess what else? Not everyone goes to the doctor the first day they are sick! And now I might fail the class because I missed one day. WTS?

You see the things I deal with? Do you see? And my teacher is nice! I like her! So I hope she'll give me another shot... I really don't care to schedule an appointment that I don't need.

So while I skipped my class because of my dry heaves, I decided to go back to sleep because I only had gotten four and a half hours of sleep. This is what college does to me. I DON'T EVEN HAVE A NORMAL SLEEPING PATTERN! Another thing I learned at college... I'm a very good procrastinator. I never used to procrastinate. I did assignments as soon as I could to get them done. Now... that is not the case. And I have so much reading I have to do! It never ends. At least in high school you knew that you could only do the assignments you were given, and not any more than that. Well now they give you a syllabus so you know when everything is due. So once you get something done you're like, "Hmm... I could do this now to get it done with.." It's perpetual!

My roommate just came in with ten breakfast sandwiches and was all like, "Can I fit these in the freezer??" NO KATIE. YOU CAN'T. Our freezer is literally the size of a large pencil case. Then she proceeds to ask me if I can go find somewhere outside to store them so they stay cold. NO. NO I WILL NOT. She's so random.

Okay, I gotta go now and attempt to do homework and complete my FAFSA tonight. Oh and come up with a logical reason for missing my journalism class this morning. One that won't make me fail.

Yayyy college!

bicycles are dangerous

This is what I've determined today:
Me on a bike = bad news bears.

My logic behind this is definitely sane. Josh brought down my bike so I can zoom around campus, so today I tried it out. I did pretty decent I think, except for when I nearly killed a girl. I was toying around with my gears and saw her in front of me, but what I did not realize was that she was turning toward me to go into a building. It was too late to hit the brakes, so I swerved like a mad man to avoid hitting her. I'm pretty sure she about pissed her pants.

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.

Wanna know something else? I made a sweet bulletin board for our dorm room door. It's freaking sweet. That's about all I can say. Except that I know you're jealous.
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...

stupid credit card companies

Okay, so this is probably my fault.. but I'm thinking U.S. Bank is trying to screw me over. First, they sent me a credit card last August and I mistakenly thought it was my debit card, so I activated it. MY BAD. My mom told me to keep it so I can use it for emergencies or whatever though. Then she proceeded to tell me that I need to make one purchase a year so I don't get smacked with a huge fine. Well I made that one TINY purchase and never received a statement. I guess I signed up for the e-statements which means that I don't get a paper statement. Since I never received a paper statement.. and though the e-mails they were sending me were the debit card statements, I never paid it (this purchase was made in January). Now they docked my credit score from 400 to 300. Douchebags. I will admit, I definitely need to keep better record of my personal finances, but still. COME ON, GIVE ME A BREAK!

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.
