Currently Listening To: "Strictly Game"- Harlem Shakes (listen to it here)
1. I'm really digging Navy Blue nail polish 2. bikes bikes bikes bikes. Sarah's bike is SO slow. 3. I have so much work to do this week, I feel like every week is going to be murder until school is absolutely done on May 5th (Cinco de Mayo AND Mom's birthday!) 4. I want warm weather to stay, it makes me feel better, albeit less productive. 5. I want to improve my vocabulary. Correction: I aspire to enhance my vernacular. 6. Lists are awesome. 7. My impending to-do list is annoying, however. 8. My apartment is never clean anymore. Why is that? I must be busy. 9. I haven't blogged in a while, sorry folks. 10. I am in love with my Jaguar belt. 11. I want a Buddy moped. 12. I think I'll settle for a bike instead. 13. I want Ben's purple Mercier. 14. I'll settle for Michele's green Mercier. 15. I'll settle for something that isn't a mountain bike.
Every time I open this page to write an entry I never know what to put anymore.
Today I have Archaeology in about 35 minutes, and I've been grappling with the paper that I have due in that class. I'm thinking I'm going to write about Mummies. Hackneyed, over-done, and down right boring to some, I'm hoping that by tweaking my topic I can provide an interesting spin. I'm thinking of writing about "screaming mummies," referring to the horrifying body positions and facial expressions left on the dead after death.
Good deal, yah?
After that It's Witchcraft at 4, which I'm not really looking forward to. I'm not really "in to" the book we're reading, and my group is driving me up the wall.
Speaking of Groups, my group for Ethics has yet to be productive about our assignment. I think I'll jump on that tonight and look up organizations we can volunteer for.
At this moment I'm sitting in the library and I'm hungry. In nearly a half an hour I will be at Shafer with my old roommate catching up and probably laughing. Two hours from now I will be getting my ticket for Ratatat.
Three hours from now I will be going to Art history and seeing Ebbie and Jessica, and maybe that guy from my Archaeology class.
12 hours ago I was sitting in Archaeology and he asked me about our Art history exam. I was oddly silent and didn't say more than a sentence. 12 hours later I'm sitting in the library at this moment hoping I didn't offend him.
In roughly 6 hours I will be done with Art History and probably hungry. I will call Michele to go to Shafer and we'll eat.
An hour and a half later I'll text you and we'll watch a movie. And I'll be happy.
I have been sick for about a week now, and I am so done with it. I still have a sore throat, I had a coughing fit at the movies last night, and I'm just over being "Typhoid Mary"
I'm getting used to my new bangs, and I'm always staring up at them, this could be the reason for a head ache all day.
I woke up to snow flurries. This made me frown. I just want summer to be here, I can't even stand it.
I feel like this blog should be formatted into a list like The Engaging Prospectus, I feel like that might be more efficient, but I wouldn't want to cramp Lena's style.
Today I did some much needed redecorating with Christina and Jackie (mis hermanas). We did a really good job! I'm actually really impressed. Our Family room now looks better than it ever has, and we even bought some plants (orchids!) to brighten up the room. If I had a stamp of approval, I would.... stamp.... all over this room.
As for tonight I'm going to Johnny's, the restaurant where my sister works, with Mom, Jackie, and Christina for a big family dinner, and then hopefully head over to a bon fire later tonight.
OH. I got a 100% on my huge Archaeology exam! SCORE.
I'm addicted to The Bird and The Bee Listen to them here
Having no voice has brought about interesting challenges, but I'm listening more, and realizing that a lot of the stuff I say has no substance. Wait, let me rephrase this. I do say important things, but when you have very little use of a voice, you only say what's really important.
I polished silver today, and boy is it satisfying. Turning something tarnished and ugly into something beautiful is definitely a chore that I can enjoy. Tomorrow I tackle a large silver pitcher and I'm unnecessarily excited about it.
Also I'm headed to Tysons tomorrow to do some much needed* shopping. I'm excited to get out of this house.
Plans for the week: -Shopping with Christina -Watchmen with the sistahs -Mom-time -night-time reconnaissance/sneaking around -amphora with Abby -Getting my voice back? -Watchmen with Zane?
I hope the good weather lasts, I plan on buying shorts and dresses.
*I doubt new clothes are "needed" I'm just shameful about clothing.
I changed the layout of this little blog because I felt inspired by the warm weather, and I was bored with the old one. However, I feel as though putting my picture up there is a little egocentric. Thoughts?
I got an 100% on my Art History exam, and I'm PUMPED. So awesome that I'm doing well in a class I enjoy. Today I took my Archaeology exam and it wasn't too bad, I think I did well. Last night as I was studying I found an online quiz and printed it out, and it turns out a lot of the same questions from this random-ass quiz were on my exam! YES.
There are 5, count them, 5 firetrucks outside my apartment. Should I know something that I don't?
To Do List: Shower (Duh) Do laundry Pack Clean the apartment.
Wow, I feel terrible. I think it was a mistake to drink that mysterious bottle of water I found in my apartment while cleaning. I'm pretty sure it was Kara's from when she visited, which occurred at the end of her period of cold-symptoms. What the fuck was I thinking? All I know is that I woke up this morning to study for my Exam at 1 and I feel nasty.
But I'm almost done! All I have is my midterm today and I have to turn in my Witchcraft paper, and then I'm home free for Spring Break! I can't wait to go home, geez.
now I might sleep off this nauseous feeling until 12:30
Moving from the suburb of the Nation's Capital, to the former Confederate Capital of Richmond, VA, I am a student at Virginia Commonwealth University writing about the trials and tribulations of college life, and trying to get a grasp of "The Good Life".
