Rest of my wonderful weekend...

Back to my wonderful weekend... this is long so better take a bathroom break NOW!

Saturday morning I woke up just before 8. Julia was still asleep so I laid there for awhile trying to decide whether to get up or to try to go back to sleep. Gladly, she woke up just about two minutes later. Really strange how that works (I swear I didn't wake her up).
We decided to wait until DJ came to wake us up (with pots and pans and yelling) and scare him but it rather back-fired since he wasn't planning on waking us up until 9. We remembered and snuck downstairs to wake him up (rather to stare at him until he woke up lol) which we didn't get to do since the evil stairs gave us away and woke him up before we even reached the floor. He made us breakfast as we got dressed and prettified. DJ and I played Frisbee out in front of his place while Julia watched (well, watched and avoided being hit by our rogue throws).
Melissa and Sharice showed up (finally) and I dropped DJ off near the statium for the game. [Side note: Julia and I had called them earlier and Sharice had claimed to be sick and still at OU leaving Melissa on her way to us by herself. We wasted a bunch of sympathy on both of them as, obviously, they were just messing with us... tricky girls] DJ's mom showed up next and watched the game with us (even made us that puppy chow stuff). It rocked. Very close, very good game (OU 38-OSU 34). Of course OU won but only after much trash talk via test messages was thrown around. DJ, his dad, sister Emily, and Jamie came back and we had burgers and hot dogs. (Light the grill with a flaming paper plate since we couldn't find the lighter and none of us smokes... lol) Jamie's friend Karen showed up and ate with us. (I knew Karen from HS as well! Small world, remember?) Talking, laughing, having fun for a long time... frisbee playing, messing around on the computer, etc... filled up the afternoon with just hanging out (the poof works!Yea!!!! Flies all over the ceiling!).
Later that night we threw a little party at DJ's (I suppose he threw the party but we helped, right?) It was a blast. So funny. Bunch of his friends, and Jamie's too, were there. His roommate Mike showed up with his fiance Allison ("studying" with Jim...). None of us OU people (plus BJ from OSU) were into drinking so we mostly watched them drink and be silly (beer-amid and "dirty old man" drink). Made several runs with people for various things (took one guy to the convience store for cigarettes b/c I didn't want him to drive himself... took Jamie home after she had a bit too much... went to WalMart for some juice since there wasn't any left and we, the nondrinkers, wanted some, etc. Made sure none of those 'having fun' drove.)
Spent part of the evening looking after Allison after she'd had a bit much. She was so funny. Kept asking where Jamie had gone. ("what the CRAP?") She even made up a new name for DJ = Martha Leg-hair Bubble Manwhore. Isn't that hilarious? She remembered all of our names and kept saying very, very funny things. ("that's my shirt. it's not from walmart. shirts from walmart suck") At one point she wanted to give Julia and me her engagement ring because it was shiny. Yeah, so we were mean and made her keep it. Good times.
I'll refrain from commenting on anyone who might read this or about any of the gossip since that stuff is just not fair or repeatable. lol. Just suffice to say that we all had fun, no one got hurt (more than a bit of a headache this morning), and we all lived happily ever after. After things got quieter we OU girls went to bed. Once again the giggles hit (oh, and Allison kept barging in and asking us questions... lol) and it took forever to go to sleep.
This morning my work called at 5 and 8 to see if I wanted to work today, which of course, I couldn't as I didn't have my scrubs with me, nor did I want to. The 8:00 one pretty much woke us up so we all went downstairs to see if anyone had survived. Mike and Allison were asleep upstairs, DJ was awake and talking to some of the others who had stayed over since they lived too far away to drive that night. We discussed breakfast but didn't really eat anything. Some people left. Julia and I got ready and left, probably before 9:30... [Mel and Sharice stayed maybe an hour or so longer I think]
Had another long, fun drive. Talked a lot about just everything. Gotta love Julia. Dawn's my best friend but often I know Julia sees where I'm coming from better or is at that point herself. It's nice, funny, and scary all at once; nice to have someone I don't have to explain certain things to, funny since we have many of the same twisted thoughts, and scary that there's someone else like me out there... lol
We made it here safely. Ate and unpacked. Studied a ton and a half. I'm sick of it already and am still not through for the night. Yuck.
I've reached a few conclusions:
I love having friends. Nice guys are awesome. Drinking is still rather stupid. Frisbee is totally under-rated. There is such a thing as too many cookies. Sometimes staying up late doing stupid things can be fun (more than what I usually stay up for, ie homework). When driving it's nice to have someone who knows where you're going with you. Laughing is still the funnest thing ever invented. Dancing in my truck is possible and quite enjoyable at stop lights. Sex on the beach is a nasty, nasty tasting drink if you let DJ mix it with the wrong kind of juice (it tastes "like arse"). WTF mate? Normally awesome friends can sometimes go Dr.Jekyl-Mr.Hyde in a millasecond even when they're not drinking but they (probably? lol) still love ya and vice versa. If the poufer isn't working staring at it doesn't help unless there are at least 3 of you...
Wow, that's enough of me avoiding homework.... laters! Ya should check out Julia and Mel's blogs and see if they said anything about this weekend...

"Well, Cowboy Dan's a major player in the Cowboy scene He goes to the reservation, drinks, and gets mean..." ~Modest Mouse (Now this isn't really true... but still very funny. Weirded out when I found it...)

Playing catch-up (not Ketsup...)

Wow, I'm terrible. I haven't updated this since Wednesday. How unusual for me. Well, I guess I'll get ya'll caught up soon enough, though probably not entirely today. Sorry but I have an enormous amount of homework to do that I really don't want to do but really, really need to do all the same. Urgh.
Thursday... huh... what did happen Thursday? Oh! I didn't have Peoples of the World so I didn't have class until after 1pm so I took the Girls to class and ran errands. Worked on homework, etc. Myth was really easy. Worked on group project from POTW with groupmates for a while. Then went to BSA (Black Student Association) play at the Union after swinging by and getting an OU shirt at the place where Sharice works. Play was really funny though it started really late and ran rather long. Good times.
Friday went to classes as normal. Out of nowhere Julia and I decide to leave for Stillwater that afternoon instead of the next morning as we had planned. [Sharice and Mel just went as previously planned since they had both made other plans for Friday night.] Had a great trip up there. Seriously hilarious (I did it... for a Klondike bar!). Singing and dancing and talking nonstop like the crazy persons we are. Got lots of funny looks from fellow drivers. (Cow Creek, Duck Street, and Husband Road...) Met DJ and Jamie at Chili's and had wonderful dinner. (Small, small world. I kinda knew Jamie in HS but she was a year older... anyhoo, yeah, small world.) Went back to DJ's, got the tour of his place, talked for forever [Jamie left pretty early], watched The Best Of Will Farrell ("I wish you weren't a liar."), and just generally had a good time. Ended up going to bed really, really late. ("Don't let the children muckamuck") Julia and I had the giggles really bad just when we were trying to fall asleep. Good thing we don't share a room here at OU... lol
I know ya'll want to know what happened next but I must go work on other stuff. Promise to finish this ASAP. Love ya! [Sorry if this has been a little goofy but I'm still really, really sleepy...]

I guess that I should go on home But I can't stand to be alone Cause I'll only dream about A Cowboy like you ~ Reba (This is hardly relevant but makes me laugh since Stillwater is the home of the OSU Cowboys... hahahaha...)

La belle dame sans regrets

It rained again today. Strangely, it was a nice rainy day, as opposed to those not so nice, rather dreary rainy days. [I keep wanting to type rainly. Not sure why as that doesn't make sense.]
But, yeah, it's rainy and thus perfect for making chocolate chip cookies with Julia, which we did a couple of hours ago. Since then I've been working on homework and enrollment for next semester, and frankly I must admit making cookies was much more fun and imaginative.
So what's it called when you really feel a strong urge to make or do something creative? I know wanting to travel is wanderlust so is the aforementioned creativelust? Maybe I just think the word lust is very funny and thus felt compelled to type it as often as I could politely get by with it. Lusty, lust, lust. Have I reached the quota yet and entered the territory of those whom we shun for committing acts of treason against civilized behavior? Lust, lUst, luSt, lusT... now it doesn't even sound like a real word. lol Mayhaps I need a new hobby or just some motivation to do my homework... muhahahahaha!!
I'd share cookies with you but then my roommates would sell me on the black market to the highest bidder and last time I checked that was Paco the Columbia drug lord who fancies my terrible sense of humor. Nay, I jest (sort of. They would disown me and forbid I touch anything in the kitchen ever again. That and Paco really thinks my sense of humor is rather lacking but is willing to put up with it since I'm so good at cleaning bathrooms.)
Urgh... I need to get back to homework. I'm terribly behind and fear catching up will be the death of me. So, if you never hear from me again, think well of me and remember my heroic struggle. Farewell!

"Your clock is ticking away..."

Am I moody? Earlier, like less than an hour ago, and most all of today I was happy and now, all of a sudden, I'm down. What's up with that? I don't get it.
Looked up my checklist for Pharm school application process and they have all of my stuff... but they say I'm a non-resident? How can that possibly be? I haven't lived ANYWHERE other than Oklahoma since I was 2 years old and even then I was considered a resident of OK since Dad was in the military and both he and Mum were technically OK residents. I donno. I don't understand and hope it's just a little glitch in the system that will work itself out. That would suck to be rejected because they think I'm from out of state... They have a really low percent of out-of-staters and not because there aren't plenty who do apply. Cripes...
I hung up my pictures on my bedroom walls finally. Been meaning to but finally found the type of hanger things I wanted and had time to do it... they look nice... Me likes...
Today was a great day. Classes went well. Physics discussion group problem was super easy; I kicked its butt and left it whimpering on the floor (which is the reverse of what usually happens... lol). Had no Peoples of the World but had to go to the Natural History Museum which was neat even though I've been before. There was a huge group of little, little kids there. At one point I happened to find myself in the middle of them in an exhibit and had to edge my way out with the aid of one of their adults. Was pretty funny. Myth was stupidly easy again.
"Somebody told me you had a boyfriend that looked like a girlfriend that I had in February of last year..." I like that song though I haven't a clue what the heck it's really about... transvestites? I don't know, obviously...
Made dinner with Julia. Was pretty good for hamberhelper stuff. Morgan stopped by with the plate we left at his place when we took over cupcakes and ended up staying a while though he refused to eat with us... rather, he enjoyed making fun of us mercilessly as we ate. lol. Julia, seriously, if ya'll talk about that particular subject in front of particular people, I WILL hunt you both down and make you cry. I have no reservations about doing such if that happens... (you know I'm only half joking...lol) (Warning goes out to you too, Morgan, if you happen to read this one... lol)
Someone almost hit me today as I rode my bike to class. And not because of anything I was doing... I was at the closest to the curb that I could be, there was plenty of room for them on the road (ie no other cars anywhere near), and they had to swerve to almost hit me. Don't know if they thought it was funny but it did scare me a little. I was going pretty fast and that would have hurt alot; couldn't have stopped immediately to avoid them if they had kept on their path. That's kinda mean if they aren't kidding, and is even if they are. Did I piss off someone and they think that's a good form of revenge? Is this a new form of flirting? Wicked strange. Maybe they just dropped something and happened to swerve my direction? I hope that's it. Anyhoo...
Hate to end on such a strange note but must. Sorry. Have a wonderful week and many laughs!

Goofy Mood on Monday

I am in such a goofy mood. I want to talk incessantly but can't think of anything in particular or very important to talk about. Just gibberish comes to mind. And I'm happy but have no real reason to be. (I'm happy! I'm happy! I'm happy! ~Since I know you were thinking it anyway Julia) Thus the goofiness.
I'll tell ya what, I wish I could enjoy an old-fashioned, laid back weekend for once in forever. Haven't had one since I moved in here in August and not really much before then at home either. Not going to this next weekend either since not only is it Halloween weekend but also Bedlam weekend. I just want a 'normal' weekend to do fun stuff, like go thrift store shopping, stop by random stores and see what they have to offer, visit friends that I haven't seen in ages, not have to plan every single second to the fullest since so much MUST get done or else. That kind of thing. I miss it. Almost as much as I miss you. Yes, you. I miss you. I'm sure I do or else why would I be in such a goofy mood? lol
Dixie Chicks are playing on the radio. That doesn't happen much these days. Thank goodness, since I don't really like their music much anymore. Not sure why. Probably due to the overkill presented by the media. Who knows?
Know what? I am fully convinced that I could never be anorexic even if I tried really, really hard. I like eating way too much. And I'm not particularly biased in my food choices. I eat without discrimination. "Obsessive consumptive" as my Dork and I say it (means that you eat everything in sight unless it eats you first... lol). I suppose I do favor chocolate but not without good reason. It kicks butt. Lovely stuff. Beautiful to behold and better to eat. Anyhow, back to anorexia... I just couldn't do it. Not that I could be bulimic either since I hate ralphing so much. Just thinking about it makes me just a bit less happy. Ick. NEVER HAPPEN EVER! Yuck. I'm more likely to get Turrets or become totally obsessive compulsive than get an eating disorder. Not that I'm a psychoanalyst or anything, just pretty sure I'd go crazy before choosing to go completely without eating (well, I suppose other than fasting for a good reason, not dieting. Maybe then?).
I fell asleep for a few minutes in Beird lounge at the Union today. Was rather a nice feeling since I think that's one of the signs that you're an OU student, falling asleep while studying in Beird since you're so freakin' tired from all the stuff ya do everyday. I know that sounds weird but it was nice. Take it at that and don't question my sanity, please? The chairs there are very nice and comfy. Piano dude was playing various pieces and my boring books joined with the lovely music to lull me to sleep for a few brief minutes. Startled awake by someone's cell phone but nice while it lasted...
I hate ads on the radio. What's the real point? I normally just change the station as soon as the commercials start. Do they really manage to get more customers that way? I must wonder since I know I can't be the only one to aggressively avoid them. Something to ponder...
I love my Maroon 5. They rock! Yeah! "It's not always rainbows and butterflies, it's compromise, it moves us along..."
Well, suppose that's enough rambling for now. Should get to doing something, what's it called... oh yeah, that's 'important' and should be done already. bluh. Ya'll have fun!
If you need me, let me know, gonna be around. If you've got no place to go, if you're feeling down... ~Take a Chance on Me - ABBA

Sunday thoughts

As always, I am freakin' tired! YeeHaw!
I survived the PCAT! Whooohooo!
(PCAT, for those who are unsure and afraid to admit it, is the Pharmacy College Admissions Test. It's rather like the ACT only meaner. The math goes through to calc. There's gen chem and organic chem. Biology adds to the excitement. Verbal and reading skills are also tested. And there's a short essay part. I didn't know about the essay part until I got into the testing room and they were reading the directions to us. Urgh. At least it was only "critical thinking" skills being tested in that essay since by the time we got to that part, at the end, my brain was already so fried I didn't want to do much of anything in the way of thinking, and certainly nothing that could be classified as "critical." That's just mean to put that at the end, just after the math and chem. So now you know.)
Really enjoyed going to dinner with my parents and Dork yesterday afternoon. We always have so much fun. Ate at Don Pablo's and, honestly, the food and service rather sucked. I usually love Don Pablo's but our waiter yesterday must have been new or something (aka really is an idiot if he isn't new). But was good to be with my family again so who cares? Dad kept forgetting about my new earring and seemed to hit it more than I would have thought possible. lol. Funny dad... made me stick out my tongue to check if I got that pierced too... lol, I think not as that would probably hurt alot more...
Went to a party for about an hour and a half Saturday evening. Was supposed to be a "Sin" party, as in you dress as your 'favorite' sin but most of the people there were just dressed in various Halloween costumes that really didn't seem relevant to any specific sin. I went as vanity. Before I got there I thought maybe I was dressed too out there but, no, not at all. Compared to most of them, I looked more normal than normal. Pretty ya know, but normal. And there were a ton of homo guys (who, sadly, didn't look or act especially gay so it was hard to tell until they got to talking about it) there so I didn't feel threatened at all. Was really pretty funny. They were playing poker and one of them suggested strip poker (which didn't happen, thank goodness!) and they were perfectly happy just playing together without any of us girls. lol They let me play and I totally beat them almost every round! Was a blast even though I left really early (had to work this morning and needed a bit of sleep before).
Now I need to get to work on school work since have group meeting soon... I'll write more later...

What are they thinking?

There are still people out on the golf course (our apartment faces the golf course) in the rain! Why? Can they even see where their balls go? It's raining pretty hard... and I've heard thunder so I assume there is lightning?
Is it really going to mess up your day that much to come in out of the rain for a little while, at least until it isn't raining quite so hard? I just don't get it... I mean, I guess you have your little cart thing to cruise around on but, why? WHY?

To be great is to be misunderstood. - Emerson

Titles are overrated on Fridays...

I'm a bit confused. When you look at my profile it says I've done 70 posts. It's has said that for the last 5 or so posts... that there were still 70 each time... will likely say that after I post this post... Now is it just me or does that not make sense? And all my old posts are still accessible... so it isn't deleting old ones... I just don't get it... (I'm probably just going crazy from studying so much... grrr... evil PCAT)
So... How are ya today? I'm doing quite alright. Weather is rather strange, cloudy and warm but still very ominous.
I'm bothered by the little pear-shaped holder-on thingy on my bathroom mirror... the worker dudes put it up yesterday... and it's off-center! EEeeekkk! How can they do that to me? Don't they know that's going to drive me nuts every time I have to brush my teeth or go into the bathroom for any reason? I think it's a conspiracy... that's it, they're trying to make me crazy (er). Those whom the gods wish to destroy they first drive mad... I think that's it! Save me!
I have officially decided that being a Mrs. major is much easier than what I am currently pursuing. Not that I plan on switching anytime very soon but, crikey, it would be nice to get to go out and party a little instead of all this darn studying I have to do. And looking at my schedule for next semester I know it isn't going to get much/any better.
There's my gripping and whining for the day. Thanks!

Strange Thursday morning dreams...

Wow. I just woke up from a weird dream. I hate to be that person that rambles on about some stupid dream, but this one really freaked me out. Not going into it fully but...
The part that really got to me was driving in my hometown in the middle of the day, near the old WalMart (we do have a new one...), and seeing one of my friends from HS. He was stumbling around and looked like crapola. At first I thought he was hurt then realized he was drunk. This was confirmed when he told me he was when I stopped to talk to him. He told me he had dropped out of college, hated working, and everything was "going to be okay, baby." That woke me up.
Do ya see why that's weird? I don't even think he drinks in real life. He doesn't really live near the old walmart. He is in college right now, has a job too. No one ever calls me baby that knows me, but he used to sometimes (at a time when it was alright for him to). When I woke up I almost started crying when I realized what I'd been "seeing". Now, it's funny but sad too. I think I was just really worried about him since he is under the impression that he wants to be an actor and is going to college to fulfull that dream. He's a handsome guy and very charismatic but I just don't know that he could make it long-term. Hadn't thought about it in a while so don't know why now...
So, yeah my head's still confused from waking up like that... I appoligize for this post... Have a great day ya'll!

Continuing on with Monday...

I stole it this; fill it out, please... ?
1. Who are you?
2. Are we friends?
3. When and how did we meet?
4. Do you have a crush on me?
5. Would you kiss me?
6. Give me a nickname and explain why you picked it.
7. Describe me in one word.
8. What was your first impression upon meeting me?
9. Do you still think that way about me now?
10. What reminds you of me?
11. If you could give me anything what would it be?
12. How well do you know me?
13. When's the last time you saw me?
14. Ever wanted to tell me something but couldn't?
15. Are you going to put this on your blog and see what I say about you?

Thought that looked funny; maybe... we'll see...

I just love this... quote; I suppose, is that what it is?
I believe....

  • That we don't have to change friends if we understand that friends change.

  • That no matter how good a friend is, they're going to hurt you every once in a while and you must forgive them for that.

  • That true friendship continues to grow, even over the longest distance. Same goes for true love!!

  • That you can do something in an instant that will give you heartache for life.

  • That it's taking me a long time to become the person I want to be.

  • That you should always leave loved ones with loving words. It may be the last time you see them.

  • That we are responsible for what we do, no matter how we feel.

  • That either you control your attitude or it controls you.

  • That regardless of how hot and steamy a relationship is at first, the passion fades and there had better be something else to take its place.

  • That heroes are the people who do what has to be done when it needs to be done, regardless of the consequences.

  • That money is a lousy way of keeping score.

  • That my best friend and I can do anything or nothing and have the best time.

  • That sometimes the people you expect to kick you when you're down, will be the first ones to help you get back up.

  • That sometimes when I'm angry I have the right to be angry, but that doesn't give me the right to be cruel.

  • That just because someone doesn't love you the way you want them to doesn't mean they don't love you with all they have.

  • That maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you've had and what you've learned from them and less to do with how many birthdays you've celebrated.

  • That no matter how bad your heart is broken the world doesn't stop for your grief.

  • That our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are, but we are responsible for who we become.

  • That just because two people argue, it doesn't mean they don't love each other. And just because they don't argue, it doesn't mean they do.

  • That you shouldn't be so eager to find out a secret. It could change your life forever.

  • That two people can look at the exact same thing and see something totally different.

  • That your life can be changed in a matter of hours by people who don't even know you.

Life is Crazy!!

Wow.. okay I have a ton to type and will not be fixing spelling or grammar, please forgive me!
Saturday was fun, despite the studying I had to do. Made Cupcakes and watched movie with Julia. Went to bed super late.
Work Sunday morning early. Then when got home Julia and I took cupcakes to some of our neighbors... first to a guy she knew, but turned out he didn't actually live in the apartment we went to... gave the guys there cupcakes anyway. Then tried the upstairs guys but they weren't home or just didn't answer. Visited Morgan and freaked out his roommates, maybe. Gave them cupcakes but there ya go. I got way silly and laughed a ton, probably because I had just eaten a cupcake and that was all I had eaten all day thus far. Sugar is great! We were going to take some to other friends but weren't sure where they lived so they missed out this time...
Studied some more... ran to Walmart... studied more... then as I was getting ready for bed, between studying, i heard guys in our living room. Thought it was just Sharice and her friends... Until I heard a guy say my name! Had no idea who it was or what was going on so went to investigate... turns out it was the guy we didn't know but gave cupcakes to anyway... he had brought his roomates with him... yeah, and i looked like crapola since i was in my pj's and had no makeup on and my hair was truly frightful. Anyhoo... Turns out Julia had dated one of the guys which made things even funnier... they left pretty quick but not until the original cupcake guy had seen each of our rooms? What is up with that? I just don't get it but whatever.,...
Then Sharice reminded us that Carl's birthday was Monday (today) so we threw on some more presentable clothes and took him cupcakes (stopped by gas station on the way for candles). So funny! He's doing pretty well with his injured knee... Anyway there were some of his other friends there already, I knew Steph from dorms last year, small world... Stayed there forever... Someone had put post it's all over his truck with little funny messages on them... so hilarious.... He is such a big teddy bear!
Finally got back here and had to study for another hour or so... went to bed way late... woke up 20 minutes late this morning but made it to class alright... had org chem quiz... while riding bike back here ran into a car door... I'm such a loser... was watching car coming from behind and didn't think anyone was in any of the parked cars at the side of the road... was very wrong and hit some poor dude's door. He looked like he was going to cry and started freaking out, thought he needed to call an ambulance or something, not like i was going that fast just fell over, right? Anyway got away from there as fast as I could... no real damage done... misaligned my bike but that's easily fixed... bruised my hands and knees but no other battle scars that i know of... yea! Could have been a bunch worse...
Took girls to class, etc...
Okay now I'm off to class again! Wow! Crazy day! Love ya'll and have a wonderful week! Comment to me and tell me about it if ya feel like it!

Good Saturday to ya!

Beautiful Saturday, huh? OU just beat Kansas State, isn't that lovely? I'm glad. Was a good watch too. Loads of action... Feeling the love for Cody and Peterson. Sadly, Carl did get hurt... hope he's okay. Pray for him. He's a great guy (and a great football player).
Friday night was a blast! Went to a concert at the Union with some friends... followed by smores at Cate... then watched Don Juan Demarco when we got back here. Awesomeness! Love it that I had no idea I was going to do any of that stuff until each happened. Originally was just dropping off Julia, came in to say hi to Mel... and the rest is history, to utilize the old cliche.
I am happy.
This is the coolest sitting thing I have ever seen!
I'm wearing my pinkish enamel whale pendant. It's making me laugh, it's just so ridiculous. Just FYI
This break from studying for the PCAT is lasting a really long time... eh, what does it matter how I do anyway? (that was me trying vainly to be either noncommital or sarcastic... isn't really working...)
I'm in a dangerous kind of mood. Happy but yearning to do something. Not anything specific as of yet but something... I'll let ya know if I figure out what. Really, don't think I can allow myself to do anything other than study today. Burn. (isn't that somewhat ironic, since clearly I am doing something other than studying right now? lol)
(Oh! Must add a brief rant... As rode my bike to class yesterday noticed several other bikers riding on the wrong side of the rode. Supposed to go with the flow of traffic, right? Grrrness...)
I find it interesting that I have somehow unwittingly usurped the leadership of my small Peoples of the World group. Even the "offical" leader is looking to me for input, moreso than from the others. How did that happen? I just wanted to be a slacker and, thus, did not volunteer to lead at the outset. Weird how that works. Am I some sort of power-hungry witch? (Thinking back to HS I sure wasn't a wallflower. President/co-captain/Head of several clubs/teams, co-lead in plays, etc... hardly ever just a member of anything. Even in everyday classes I took on that role; Played to the teachers and my fellow students to some extent. Had flirtations with the important boys, which changed with each 'regime' change, esp. in drama class. What is wrong with me? Shoot! I knew it! I should have gone into law and politics!)
Can you tell i'm just ranting to avoid continuing studying? lol... okay then... tootles for now...

Huffy of Doom... Doom... Doom...

Yeah, should be studying but I'm not.
Sorry about the rain in... Auckland, was it? (I just really thought that was a funny bit of a retarded song...) I'll work harder at being more fair with distribution of rain... for now I'm just two not one or three... who knew?
(And Julia, I know you're so jealous. I'd better lock the door again tonight... just in case you do go "Patsy Kline"...)
And before ya'll read this, I actually did have a wonderful, beautiful day. Just have to be a raving village idiot on here sometimes so ya'll will keep thinking I'm normal-ish.
Want to hear my opinion about something rather, well, non-important? Gooooood...

I am so freaking sick of pedestrians, who are walking in the bike lane, glaring at me, a person riding a bike, as I avoid hitting them and, thus, risk my own life at the hands of other pedestrians and various trees, cars, light poles, etc. Don't they understand it is a bike lane? I don't really mind them being there so much as I mind the evil glares that insinuate that it is my own darn fault for riding a bike in the first place when I am clearly not coordinated enough to manage to ride it without hitting people who are walking where I am supposed to be riding. They are so right. Next time I'll try riding in the air. Or maybe on the grass so I can be accosted by renegade bands of squirrels wielding acorns of scorn and strife?
Maybe I should just ask the Preacher guy out in front of Dale Hall what to do. He would know. He apparently seems to know the answer to everything in this world and the next. Did you know kissing is the same as adultery? And all sorority girls are going to live with Hades when they pass on from drinking and fornicating too much? And that wearing mascara is another form of wearing the evil one's numbers? And wearing lip gloss is obviously meant to tempt all those poor, unsuspecting, chaste, little boys into doing things they would never think of on their own? I think he just has a big problem with women in general. Everytime I've stopped laughing long enough to hear anything at all, he's bad mouthing girls as sluts, which granted, we of course all are all of the time. But I digress...
Pedestrian I have been and often am when I leave my evil Huffy of doom. But in those brief moments of sanity as my sneaker-clad feet caress the sidewalk... Wait! Did you hear that? I walk on the SIDEWALK! What a novel idea! A sidewalk, a sidewalk, whatever should a person do on a side-w-a-l-k... ? It puzzles me... s-i-d-e-w-a-l-k... it's just so deep, I can't get my brain around it...
Ranting a little? Yes. Only because it happens every day as I politely ride my Huffy of doom in the bike lane, not taking up space on the sidewalk, or really, even near the sidewalk, I get mean glares... especially from those who have decided that the bike lane is the perfect place to hold their current party, board meeting, wedding, or funeral, as the case may be. These lovely groups of individuals reserved that particular space of bike lane months ago and how dare I intrude on their gathering? How rude of me to want to go to class! I should be ashamed of myself and my dirty, double-wheeled habit!

Okay, enough of that. That is absolutely the last I will say publicly about said topic. Really. THE last!
Have a Happy (evil pedestrians in the bike lane) Friday tomorrow!

One step closer to being a biker babe...

Wednesday again. Been a pretty good week thus far. Monday stayed continuously busy. Dance was a blast as always. Learned a set of new steps for swing. Hilarious and oh-so-much fun! That is definitely my favorite dance followed closely by cotton-eye joe and the salsa.
Classes yesterday were surprisingly easy. Midterm in Myth proved as easy as I thought it would be. The lowest I could have possibly gotten was a B, I know that much.
Got my left ear pierced near the outer top. (Apparently that is called a rim piercing. I didn't know previously but there ya go.)
Watched the usual Tuesday evening shows. Worked on homework. Good day.
Today's been pretty good too. Weather is nice. Do have to work this evening but not really complaining about it.
Guess that's it for now. If you'd comment about something I'd write about it. Really. Or just ask a question and I'll answer it to the best of my knowledge. Like truth or dare only just truth, right?

It really feels like autumn...

It's raining outside. As in wash-Norman-away raining. I just know Lindsay is going to be a lake tomorrow when it's time to go to classes. Good times.
Looking back at last week...
Studied a ton Wednesday night for evil O Chem test. Finished up physics homework too as it was due Friday and I just knew I wouldn't want to have anything to do with it if I waited until after my chem test. 9 out of 10 isn't bad so I left it at that.
Thursday I woke up a little earlier than I had to so I could take the Girls to class. Then puttered around and tried to study after I was dressed for class. Didn't happen much. Went to classes. Peoples of the World left me feeling depressed and overwhelmed as usual. Mythology was a nice change of pace as we didn't really do much of anything. She brought a pomegranate for us to try (since Persephone ate part of one, forcing her to say with Hades for 1/3 or 1/2 of the year.) Then she just asked us questions from her past tests. It's going to be a majorly easy midterm quiz... I think I'll just re-read my notes Monday night and call it good. Got back from Myth and tried to study a little more. Then took a short nap (like 15 minutes or so). Headed off for my test a little early. Took me about an hour and 15 minutes to take that darn thing. Was one of the first to leave the test room, so once again, I was just good AND fast, right? Left for home after chatting with Julia a bit. Went to bed fairly early.
Was supposed to work Friday but they canceled me. I was a little bummed but only because I do kinda need the money. Took Dork to school and ran by the post office. Cleaned house then talked to Dad for a long time. Got cleaned up myself, ran to Redland's to get a couple of official Transcripts, just in case, visited Grandmum (took her some CD's and showed her how to use her CD player), and came back home to work in the front garden for a bit. Mum's been busy so it had gotten a little overgrown. Made Dad eat lunch... puttered around until time to go get Dork from school. Helped Mum with dinner when she got home (fried chicken, cauliflower, and fried rice.) Aunt Pam and Uncle David came over for dinner. I just love having family visit. Had a great time.
Saturday morning I got up early and went running with Mum and Chaco. Went about 3 miles (at least half of that distance was uphill). I found a $20 on the side of the road, isn't that neat? Got cleaned up and visited my Aunt Angie and Uncle Paul. Took my cousin my HS volleyball pullover, hope she likes it. She got to play for the school this year even though she's just in 7th grade. Stopped by the grocery store on the way home and got apples and ice cream. Baked an apple crisp as I waited for Mum to finish writing a paper for one of her classes. Then we went shopping. She found a bunch of cute tops and some nice work pants. I got a couple pairs of pants, a few tops, and a cute little black skirt. Then we went to the computer store and bought an awesome printer/scanner/fax for Dad since their anniversary is coming up soon. Really surprised him when we got home with it. It's really very, very nice. A monster but nice. Warmed up left-overs for dinner and watched the episodes of Daria that Dad had taped for me ( I just love Daria; makes me laugh a ton).
This morning I went running with Mum, Chaco, and Dork, the same 3-mile route, this time in the pouring rain. My butt hurt from Saturday so I figure I should go running more often since it seems to be needed. Anyhoo, by the time we got home we were all soaked. I got Mum to bring me a towel and I basically stripped down on the back porch. My hair was so wet it was dripping all over the place and flung water whenever I just turned my head. My running shoes are still wet. Got cleaned up, made breakfast for Dad and Dork, and checked my email. Then Mum read over my application to pharm school. (All I have left to do is get another recommendation, write a letter of intent, and get a copy of my HS transcript and send everything in. Still very scary. PCAT coming up fast. ) Ran to convenience store for Sunday papers and postcards (for my People's of the World class extra credit). Packed to come back here. Dawn stopped by to visit as I was watching Breakfast at Tiffany's. Had Marie with her. She, Marie, now has teeth, can walk a little by herself, and, it's rumored, can say "no" and "mama". Cutest little thing ya ever saw. After they left for church I puttered around some more until I decided to just go ahead and leave already. No point in putting it off since the rain showed no signs of stopping any time soon. The drive here was a biotch but I made it alright. At the Robinson on-ramp some guys in a truck got on the highway next to me and they made sure they stayed right next to me. So I sped up; They did too. The driver rolled his window down and acted like I should do the same. I did not. Then I braked down to 45 and they did the same. Finally, pissed me off so that I sped up over the speed limit and passed them to get in front of them. Exited at Lindsay exit and so did they. Now I'm really pissed. Went on Highway 9 toward campus and eventually lost them. Darn. I really hate it when guys do that. Do they think that because I drive a pickup that must mean I'm dying to date them? Perhaps I should get rid of the "Single and Desperate" bumper sticker... oh, wait... I don't have one of those! Silly me!
Anyhoo... I made it here. Ought to be studying. But I'm not. So there!
OU won Saturday 12-0 against TX. Not that it was a huge surprise but nice all the same. Great having a winning team.
Hope ya'll have a great week!

moved from xanga

Yikes! Has it really been since September 1st? Wow! Guess what I'm doing right now? Come on! Okay, fine, you got it... Yes, I am avoiding studying before a big test tomorrow. How did you know? Am I that transparent? Would wearing more clothes help? Or a hat? I'm totally listening to my Enrique Iglesias 7 cd on repeat. Have been for the last 5 hours or so as I studied. At least I now have something to alternate with my Maroon 5, right? I'd really like to make cupcakes right now. But I can't, or rather, musn't as I am now a hermit in my room because being a hermit means I no longer need Organic chemistry and thus can actually go to sleep sooner than later. That and Julia ate 2 eggs, leaving only 1 which is not enough for cupcakes... unless I go to the store which is a biotch... I hate WalMart. It's truly evil, I'm convinced of that fact. It's the truth, for sure. Another truth is that I am so delightedly happy that there are no classes this Friday for me, since it's OU-TX weekend! Yea! I'm going home and playing with Chaco, visiting Alicia, and just generally being a kid again. It sucks having to act grown up all the freaking time. I'm not and I know I'm not but I have to pretend to be so "they" don't find out and send me back to HS, which isn't really something I want to re-live, if ya know what I mean. Anyhooo... my application to pharmacy school is due on November 1st and I'm taking the PCAT on October... well, on a Saturday, can't remember exactly but very, scary soon... These things will partially decide my future, how freaking nuts is that? And I am scared beyond scared but have erected a lovely facade to the world so no one suspects. Don't tell them, please. That would be just so very embarrassing. Unless you wore a funny hat. Then it would be alright.
Okay this is enough for now. Love ya'll and have a lovely week!

It's Wednesday. That's a good thing, right?

Life continues as normal. Classes, studying, watching Gilmore Girls, One Tree Hill, Real World, and Laguna Beach, and not sleeping quite enough. Well, that was yesterday but you get the picture.
Is it just me or is junk just really cool sometimes? Apparently I'm not the only one...
I have a big Organic Chem test tomorrow evening. Not looking forward to it in the least. Been studying a lot and will be studying even more tonight. Might become a hermit and just skip the whole pissed-at-the-world mindset... Because what hermit really needs organic chem? None of them REALLY do, that's my point!
Have a great day! (I refuse to acknowledge the term "hump day" since it's just silly...)

'Cos I'm Free... Free to do the things on my mind...

Nah, nah, nah maybe I'm addicted... to my Enrique Iglesias cd... listened to it at least a dozen times last night and this morning. Almost know all the words... hehehe...
It was rather rainish this morning... sprinkle/misted on me on the way to and from class but was still rather pleasant. I enjoyed my bike ride(s); watching people and looking at the scenery was terribly entertaining and it was the perfect temperature/weather.
Fixed my bike this morning... tires were getting low and making it harder to pedal. Yea!
Hair is being unruly today for no apparent reason. Just does whatever it wants... Grrrrness... At least it smells heavenly. I just adore my conditioner smell combined with my Calvin Klein One perfume. Almost as good as getting to walk through the men's cologne department at the mall department stores. But only almost. That is really one of my favorite things to do at the mall; every time I go I have to do that or else it just wasn't a satifying mission. Funny how that works...
I don't really feel like going to physics today... I'll go but doubt I'll like it much. Not that what we're working on is difficult but it gets boring and I could think of a million things more fun to be doing with my time...
In conculsion... hope ya'll have a wonderful week and much laughter in your lives!

Wish you were here with me... make life more interesting

Yah, I should totally be studying but I am putting it off a bit longer for a short break to catch ya'll up on my weekend...
Friday I spent all my time in Norman working on Physics homework. Good times... Classes were alright, not too hard. Drove home as soon as I got out of class. Cleaned up the house, dropped off my truck to get the oil changed, and went to WalMart with Mum. Picked up truck, went to Chili's for dinner for Dad's birthday last Monday, and went to Quail to look at shoes... Mum got a nice new purse and Dad found shoes. Stopped by Barnes and Noble to look at books... I love books... could spend millions on books.
Saturday I woke up at 8:30 and puttered around for a while... then got dressed, visited Grandpa, went to Abuelo's for lunch, Hasting's on the way home (got lovely Enrique Iglesias 7 cd which is playing in my player right now)... visited Grandmum... gassed up my truck, did not get money from the ATM, and played pool with the parents. (Funny stories for Abuelo's and grandparents... maybe in a later post or just ask me.)
Worked this morning... got to go smoke a dozen times... you know how much I just adore getting to do that. Anyhoo... made it back here... Julia had to spend the weekend alone so we send warmest wishes for a happy week to her. Sharice went home so she had fun with her family (she still isn't back... but soon...)
There's a new Ill Will Press Foamy cartoon! Yea!
Okay, I'll write something insightful soon... promise... in-between school work... urgh...

Rain Rain Go Away

Salutations! Physics homework sucks. Not evilly hard but evil none-the-less.
It's rainy outside. Dreary looking. And apparently cold. Great weather for a weekend!
I'm going home tonight! Yea! (happy dance here)
(I really like this song and, thus, this quote from it... Sometimes feel like that but not too terribly often... Mostly just a good song)
