Physics = my Stan for the day

I was just assaulted by my physics test. Verbally, mentally, physically, situationally, sarcastically, interpersonally, etc... I think you can see where this is headed. It killed me. Cory tried to make it sound like it was hard for him. Psssh. He always does way better than I do on tests. I may have the homework done earlier with more correct but he always seems to trump me on tests. It's a curse. lol
On another note, I just saw a short man with yellow reflector bands strapped to his ankles over his jeans. Very strange...
I'm wearing my Memphis Hard Rock Cafe shirt today. It's one of my favorites... Which, well, it would seem otherwise because I hardly ever wear it. Whatever. I'm crazy.
Did I mention I'm still high on my cold medicine? I wanted to actually sleep last night instead of spending the night trying to breathe... kinda backfired/worked against me... Thinking isn't one of my strong points at this very moment due to medicinal inhibition. Something like that.
Happy Birthday to my Daddy.... His Birffday was yesterday. (Sorry I couldn't make it home; Love you and see ya soon!!)
The sky is all cloudy but it feels so lovely outside. Think I'm going to head out to read on a bench before class...
Happy Wednesday everyone!!!

Fair play and fun times

Sitting in the computer lab between classes and just cannot seem to get this Jack Johnson song out of my head. (Sitting, Waiting, Wishing of course) Driving me nuts, or would be if it weren't so pretty to begin with.
Had a good weekend. Went to the State Fair Saturday with Julia and Danielle. SO MUCH FUN!!!! Got to see Dawn as well as Mike & his girl friend. Crazy who all ya see at the fair! Rode some rides and just generally had a blast! Root beer in a jug is totally awesome as is hanging out around the karoke stage!
Was supposed to work yesterday but they didn't need me for either shift. I was okay with that since the only case they had for me to work was a kid case and those are always really sad. Didn't really get much of anything done all day...
OOOOh! I watched part of Nip/Tuck with Elise last night and I had no idea they could show all that stuff on TV!!!! WTF??? How can they show so much graphic material at only 9:30pm??? Aren't kids still awake? (Oh, and I'm not just talking about the surgery parts... for those who don't know, this show has other parts equally unsuitable for kids. I'm not sure I'm old enough to watch that!!!! EEEeeek! Which is why we watched some cartoons until we thought that scene was done...)
I really like the dresses Shania Twain wears in her music video for "Don't". Just so ya know...
Guess that's all I had to say for now... Hope everyone is having a lovely week thus far! His grace be with you and your loved ones

"Sitting, Waiting, Wishing"~Jack Johnson
Now I was sitting waiting wishing
That you believed in superstitions
Then maybe you'd see the signs
But Lord knows that this world is cruel
And I ain't the Lord, no I'm just a fool
And loving somebody don't make them love you

Must I always be waiting waiting on you?
Must I always be playing playing the fool?

I sing your songs I dance a dance
I gave your friends all a chance
Putting up with them wasn't worth never having you
And maybe you been through this before
But it's my first time
So please ignore
The next few lines 'cause they're directed at you

I can't always be waiting waiting on you
I can't always be playing playing your fool

I keep playing your cards
But its not my scene
Won't this plot not twist?
I have no place to read?
Keep building me up, then shooting me down
Well I'm already down

Just wait a minute Just sitting waiting
Just wait a minute Just sitting waiting

Well if I was in your position
I'd put down all my ammunition
I'd wondered why'd it taken me so long
But Lord knows that I'm not you
And If I was I wouldn't be so cruel
Cause waiting on love ain't so easy to do

Must I always be waiting waiting on you?
Must I always be playing playing the fool?
No, I cant always be waiting waiting on you
I can't always be playing playing your fool, foool...

Crazy cats... but can they write too???

How to draw like a cat <~Now that's out of the way...
Been a curious mix of busy and bored this week. The Chai tea mix and I have made up and are making plans for a couples weekend in Boston sometime in the near future. Or no. This whole personification thing - Wow, I get so caught up in talking (since I never shut up I'm lucky to have this sort of forum to talk without being interupted) that I just forget that the mix stuff isn't a real person... Real being the coolest way of putting it. (Did I just say that I was using a golf club to get it into the hole or that I was wording something a certain way??? "Putting vs. Puting - tonight live at the Harvey Area. We'll be there ring-side to keep you posted with all the jaw-dropping details!" "This just in - It seems that putttting will be there too! What a night folks! Be sure to tune in tonigh...")
Oops. My mouse just tried to commit suicide by leaping from the edge of my desk to the jagged beige shag carpet below. It would have been a horrendous tragedy if fate had not stepped in in the form of me actually catching it first. I know. Anticlimactic. So sue me. Once again with the personification.
I made an A on my first botany test. So proud am I of myself. And I was the first one done with the spanish test I took Wednesday. So hopefully that's a good thing. Next one I'm looking forward to is physics next week... won't be such a walk in the park as the others were...
Okay, off to scavenge for some food... Hasta lavista!

Chai tea mix is Stan

It would seem that the chai tea mix and I do not get along well. That or the mix stuff gets along very well with my pants... The jury will kindly note: Before I left for class some jumped on the upper part of the jeans I was planning on wearing today. But no big deal, right? I'm still at home; I'll just change pants quickly. Go to class and everything goes smoothly. (Yeah, right, but for this story just let me simplify like that, okay?) Get back to the house and decide it would be a good idea to rinse out my cup from earlier since I'd been in such a hurry before that I had forgotten to. This is where the story gets stupid(er). I managed to make an even BIGGER mess on this second pair of jeans. As in a whole long stripe down the side of my right leg from knee to hem. Yes, I am that good. No, I won't make messes on demand just for your amusement. Okay, fine. Just wait about ten minutes and I'll probaby do something stupid on my own requiring no forethought or planning.
And now for some general whining about nothing in particular...
Between classes this morning I went to the Great Reading Room to study. For those of you that don't know or understand what the Great Reading Room is... This room is a huge room intended for the use of studying in almost silence on a busy campus where near-silence isn't always easy to find. Thus it is an understood rule in the Room that one does not make loud noises and, especially, no one should talk more than a few words whispered to a near neighbor, etc. So a lovely group of a half-dozen or so older people walking in and talking loudly isn't the norm. But that is what walked in on my study session today. I swear, the only way the two older women could have talked any louder would be via a bullhorn. And one of the old men kept asking really dull questions, such as under whose administration a certain carved panel DOWNSTAIRS had been made/donated. They hung around talking loudly/stupidly and taking pictures for at least 15-20 minutes. Crikey. I honestly thought this one fellow catty corner to me was going to attack them, he had such a look of incredulous anger on his face. I mean, I was not happy about them being so loud but I guess I don't really have any real right to ask them to shut up or leave now do I? Whatever. I suppose the pretty carved little angels near the cathedral-like ceiling rather make up for any small annoyances. They are very pretty.
I really don't like it when text books have unbalanced chemical equations... How nerdy of me is that?
Jingle jangle jangle
Mum I left my caramel coloured sweater at home this last weekend. Please don't sell it to the paparazzi!
And here is a hilarious site Julia showed me...Funny food...
Okay, have a lovely week!

Because Ryan said to

10 years ago I was: 10 years old, in 5th grade. Loved gymnastics class, riding my bike around with the neighborhood kids, and playing in the rain. Had just decided to grow my hair out long.

5 years ago I was: 15 yo, in 10th grade at El Reno HS. Was THE starting volleyball setter for JV and Frosh, making straight A's, and way too involved in various school clubs/teams. Had just met my best friend Alicia.

1 year ago I was: a 2nd semester sophomore here at OU. 19 yo and living with Julia and Sharice at the Reserve. Just starting organic chem. Thought I had it all together (but probably didn't). Had fun.

Yesterday: Was Thursday. Went to class, took a nap in the Library, went to yoga... had lunch with Julia and watched some tv... played online for a bit. Cooked and ate a great dinner... Watched parts of the OC and some kids' movie. Mel came over for some gossip, Morgan, Alex, Chris, and Katie came by... Skronky showed up... watched some Monty Python... that's about it

Sunshine on the Inside

(Title of this post is from a song by Stephen Covell...)
Rainy day. Once again I have to wonder if perhaps my name makes me a tad more inclined to really love rainy weather, you know, more than everyone else. Today campus is so gorgeous. Really, it's always beautiful but sometimes one forgets to look around and see it. The trees are all green, the crepe myrtles are fluffy with blooms, and the chrysanthemums are getting stronger: They might bloom soon, if we're lucky! Walking around, looking at the scenery and all the characters that flesh out this way of life, makes me just so thankful. Thankful for life, love, happiness, rain, sun, smiles, chlorophyll, music, people, light through the water droplets in my hair, ducks, and a million other things just as random. On the bus coming home from class I overheard, "She came into class, plugged in her phone, and acted like nothing was weird! You can't charge your phone in class! That's, like, a law!" Good to know the etiquette police are out in full force... Also on the bus, looking out, I saw a car tag that read "SPARKL". Elicited a big smile from me of course.
Guess I'm just in a good mood.
Was a little frustrated last night. Stupid false barriers to progress. I am of course talking about pharmacy school. But whatever. HEY!!!! Luke said yes to Loreli's proposal on Gilmore Girls!!! Made me very happy!!! WOO!
Okay, back to studying for botany test tomorrow. If anyone has suggestions on what classes I should take next semester then leave me some comment love! Happy, happy Wednesday!!!

Achieved so much...)

Effing A. Did they just hate me???? Now I'm looking at what classes to take for next spring and I think I'm just going to go ahead and reserve a place at Griffin... Grrrr....

Tuesday again

Had a good time at home. Got laundry done. What more could I ask for?
Julia and I are cooking tonight in honor of the Season starter of Gilmore Girls tonight! Woo!
Skronky gets paid to go to the 311 concert tonight! Crazy huh? He's working security apparently. Sounds like fun.
Nothing too new going on. I'm almost done with my physics homework for the week...
Can't think of anything worth saying. Happy Tuesday!

Monsters are still scary

10 September 2005

Good show

The show went beautifully. It was at this cool little outdoor venue, the Trainstop or something like that... It was an old train depot but Amtrack still stops there or something. 3 trains went by during the show... kinda funny. Julia and I kidnapped Morgan; We met up with Melissa and Lindsay there. Such good times with good friends. I really like one of the songs Zack Winters sings, "The Devil Has a Pretty Voice". It totally rocks. I'd post the lyrics but I don't think he has them up online and I don't know all of the words. Besides, just hearing the words isn't enough. You wouldn't get the full essence of the song from the words alone. We all danced out to the Neighborhood; Splendid times. (Oh, Morgan didn't actually dance but he did sway a little and that counts, right?) OH!!! And I got called a groupie by a lady working the "entrance" table. Weird but nice.
After the show Mel, Morgan, and Linds came by our house. Then we called up Alex and Katie plus a friend of Mel's, Matt, to watch "A Lot Like Love" with us since we hadn't seen them in a while. Alex, Katie, and Morgan left about halfway through (Oh, sidenote so that makes a tad more sense: Morgan and Alex are roomates in an apartment at the same place Julia and I used to live. Katie is Alex's wonderful girlfriend.) And Elise + her crew showed up. Crikey. That's all I will comment about THAT.
Movie was as good as the company so we had a good time. Now I'm sleepy and should get to bed but find myself still wide-awake. Goin' home tomorrow to see the fam. Heard a rumor that we're getting a new couch or something so what better excuse do I need??
Love to all and to all a good night!!!

first rule is...

Confused in general. sleepy. Contemplating some sort of new project but haven't thought of a good one yet.
Dork, you're so unstable. Tried blogger and hated it. Worked xanga but are now giving it up. Tried myspace and rejected it. I honestly hope you don't think facebook is any better. It's not unless the high school version is totally different from the college one. Good luck.
Jenna, Steve, and Julia are watching the end of Fight Club right now. I watched most of the beginning with them but have seen the end so recently that I was getting bored with it.
Physics this morning sucked. I actually wish I had just given in to the dark side and skipped it but No, can't do that. Heavens no. And Corey left early so I had no one to make sure I stayed awake so I had to keep myself awake. Crikey. That sucks. lol
Going to watch The Neighborhood and Zack Winters play this evening. Looking forward to it very much.
Hasta lavista!

ramble ramble rouser

I am so not really in the mood for writing a post but it's been so long that I really feel that I should anyway. Sorry if this isn't my best ever...
Yoga today was nice. My shoulders are going to be sore tomorrow but a nice sore. Darn dog pose.
Red pants. I don't know how I feel about these red pants I'm wearing. I think I like them but then I think about it again and I don't like them. Makes me feel a little bipolar or something since I just can't make up my mind. I don't have this problem with jeans. So much simpler.
Got my teeth cleaned yesterday. No cavities or anything bad. Now if only they could make them less like Mr. Dink-teeth and more like normal-person teeth. But whatever.
Driving through traffic yesterday I got held up on the highway while some idiots did stupid stuff causing traffic to (sometimes) go an amazing 25 miles an hour. The only reason I mention this is because as I sat there waiting I saw a pretty Monarch butterfly drift over the cars and trucks, ignoring us and enjoy his day. Made me smile. Life goes on around us.
I'm to this strange point in my little life... I'm happy. And I'm content with being mostly mediocre. I've come to realize that there is absolutely nothing that I excelle at more than anyone else in this big world and that I'm okay with this. I don't have to be the best. It isn't about comparison or contest. It's just life and meant to be lived. Simple and complex as that.
Also, I haven't been to a church of my own denomination in at least a year other than for a wedding. I haven't been to a real church service of any kind for around six months. All this just to say that despite my apparent lack of committment, I feel closer to God than I had for a while. A long while. Not that I ever got too terribly far away. But now I feel at peace with my situation and catch myself saying little prayers throughout the day at the most random times, about the most random things. I like it. Hope this lasts.
Love to you all and Happy Thursday!!!!

Grrr. Me= dressed and ready for work. Call in to find out which room. Not even on the schedule. Well, Happy Labor Day weekend to you too.
Downside to having a cowhide hanging on your wall: Your room starts to smell like tanned leather. Also COW. But at least not manure or else I would have to give up and take the thing down. It almost makes me think of a really long camping trip...
Yesterday was so unproductive. And that football game. Urgh.
How is it possible to be happy and unhappy at the same time? Because if you asked me how I was doing/feeling I would truthfully answer along the lines of "Great! Feeling a tad sick but otherwise great!" But there's a nagging feeling here too that something isn't right or that I've missed something important. Cannot for the life of me figure out what it is, otherwise I could fix it or ignore it more efficiently. Instead I'm left with this weird confusion. (Earlier in the week I got that feeling like something terrible was about to happen but as far as I know nothing did... that was after Katrina btw.) Maybe all this is just me thinking too hard while being awake too early, sleepy, and a little mad. I hope so.
Well, Happy Labor Day Weekend my lovelies! Thanks for putting up with my grouchy rambling.

No similes, just smileys!

Internet at the house is back to being nice! Woo!!!! Yea for Brock who fixed our mischievious wirelessness!!!!
I have hiccups. Has nothing to do with the tiny rum and coke I had earlier. Really. No really.
Julia is brushing her teeth. I almost spelled teeth as teath. That makes no sense. (Is today a day???)
May the Gods bless the saint who posted a little map of Kaufman 3rd floor and included where the bathrooms are located. It's almost like the architect didn't want anyone finding them. They're freakin' hidden between some offices and look just like those darn offices.
Studying mitosis again (asexual reproduction of cells...). Remember the order of the phases by thinking as my ZOO 1114 teacher suggested "It's Possible My Aunt Takes Crack". But then I was waiting on the bus and was thinking (something I should do less than I actually do)... Came up with "It's Possible My Aunt Tiles Closets" which struck me as hilarious. I'm picturing my Aunt Pam tiling one of her little closets with a Roman-style mosaic (something I doubt she would ever do) but she keeps it a secret so I don't know for sure, that's why "it's possible". Muahahahahaha. (By the way IPMATC are Interphase, Prophase, Metaphase, Anaphase, Telophase, and Cytokinesis)
Something else I thought of/saw while waiting for the bus... A guy walked by wearing man-capris. White ones. Which were hilarious. And I laughed again, once more weirding out the people in line near me. Guys shouldn't wear white capris. They just shouldn't.
Okay, well, I should get some sleep. Love to all and mucha gusto helado.
