crappy day.

violin lesson didn’t go so hot this morning….i think there are some things the teacher and i are not seeing eye to eye on…ugh, i have a lot to do with that..

then i spilled a cup of (extra hot because i requested it be hot as possible so it stays warm) coffee down the front of my dress.

then on the way back to change i ripped my leggings

then i stubbed my toe.

then i took an exam in sociology, and i think i did okay except for the fact that i left out one HUGE part of an essay…like, it didnt even register in my head while i was writing. everything else on the exam i think i did okay on.

then i ate a sandwich and a huge chunk fell right into my lap (i should just wear my food-seems im best at it)

then its this GLORIOUS day and all i want to do is spend it outside…but im finishing my lab report and doing some anthro terms and questions for our exam in one week (ahhhh)

then i lost this beautiful ring my dad gave me. its red with a blue and green flower design on it, and the inside is turquoise. it mustve fallen off my finger at some point….

if anyone sees it, please let me know! i loved that ring…

on the bright side-gramma sent me a card with a $5 bill in it.

hey, its $5 more than i had at the beginning of the day, right?

almost done with lab report. back. to. work.

there are a LOT of prospective students here today! i heard over 150….

i’ve been seeing them with their parents and pillows and duffel bags walking around campus and in my class. i wish i had done this as an admitted student! I remember getting all prepared for college-buying stuff, trying to figure out campus, organizing everything, etc, but i never did anything like an admitted students day.


i hope everyone is having fun 🙂

i noticed them all last night when i was getting dinner post-working out-i came marching down the lowry steps with 2 to-go boxes and 2 bowls filled with food while balancing a too-heavy tote bag and water bottle with half a banana shoved in my mouth and my hair basically slicked back from sweat (i biked 26 miles!!), and i was faced with a million kids and their parents milling around in the lobby, staring at me.

please don’t be scared of me. i’m normal (and showered) promise!

ive also witnessed about 2934932847 tours today (you can always tell a tour by a family walking slowly with a person walking backwards in front of them talking) and the guides never seem to run into anything…genius, i tell you.

i have orchestra basically all evening…sectionals 4:10-5:10 then 7-9:30. i wish we could change our sectional time to wednesday. in the hour and a half or so that i have in between the two rehearsals i have barely enough time to grab dinner and get some hw done…luckily i dont have class on tuesdays, so if i don’t really get productive on mondays i have an entire day to catch up to it 🙂

lets see if anything good is on tv right now…

dear lowry,

tired. cold. crabby

maybe its the weather…43 and pouring out.

i got all my homework done already….had a great dinner….had a good workout…

have a big debate tomorrow! i’m on the side for corporal punishment. although i have a feeling that we’re going to be on the defense most of the time, i think we’ll do good.

sociology test next wednesday. UGHHHHHHHHHH. i should probably start studying for that, considering its on all the readings that ive skimmed repeatedly read and taken notes on.


and lab report due next thursday! we spent 2.5 hours today discussing how to do the results section…aka the stats part.

overheard in lowry:

guy on cellphone:

‘yeah….yea i dunno, its kinda greenish….yeah its really gross….what? no not really, just really burns sometimes. i know! i have no idea how i got it…..yeah…well, we’ll see i guess.’

i really hope he was talking about a bruise.

back to schooooooo-ooolllll

my break was relatively uneventful-worked-went to grammas-shopped-took numerous naps. although i wasnt off on some fancy beach, it was quite nice to just relax at home with the puppy and parents 🙂

now its back to school, and actual “work”…oh dear.

congrats to all the seniors yesterday who finished their IS! Everybody loves IS monday (the due date), and despite the cold weather the parade was awesome as well as the entire day 🙂 everyone was wearing their pins…it makes me excited (believe it or not) to do IS next year and get a pin and march around campus cheering all day

other super news-i got offically accepted into my study abroad program! i leave for ireland on june 18th or 19th…I CANNOT WAIT omg i want a vacation from this country.

what else…our psych professor decided to change our exam on friday into a debate on for/against punishment. am i happy? HECK yes. nothing to have to memorize (which i can’t really do).


sitting in bed watching spongebob squarepants working hard on my lab report due thursday,

i can hardly wait. it’s so tempting to just burn out these last 2 days if i do i know ill regret that decision later…

lets see…whats new.

i ran for treasurer for my sorority…and i didn’t get it. a little disappointed, but i got voted to be a new member educator 🙂

we had to give speeches regarding our position, and although other girls said mine was good and i brought forward some thoughtful ideas, i guess it didn’t just make the cut.

my speech giving is quite terrible:

1. drench-like sweat pouring down my face

2. lose color in face (look as if im about to faint)

3. shaking

4. high-pitched nervous laugh that sometimes sounds like im choking

5. a bad pun or joke that makes nobody else laugh but myself

6. rambling

7. talking too fast

8. stuttering

9. staring blankly at a wall (i try to take my glasses/contacts off whenever i talk in front of a large body of people…considering i can’t see anything but blobs of color and movement unless its about an inch from my face. this is a skill i picked up quickly, where i learned that i can make faces at some random person across the room (or just stare at them) and they can make faces at me or do whatever they want….but i still can’t see them. heheheheh)

10. spit flying out of my mouth

since there is no way you will get through college without some sort of speech giving in some class, i recommend rehearsing a few times before hand. at least you shouldn’t experience as many of the symptoms as i have when i do it.

off for lunch.
