Blahhh. Being sick is no fun. I'm coughing up a lung here. Good thing I have my Riiiccoollaaa. Right now I should be working on my paper due on Monday. I also have a test on Monday I should be studying for. I'm procrastinating like whoa. I just want to relax today though. Thank gooddddd the semester is almost over!

I have to say that the last few days have been the best I've had in the last few weeks. I realized that I can do better. And that I deserve better. I know I'm a better person for what has happened. If that's how some people are going to treat me, I don't need them. I have so many people who actually care about me and are there for me when I need them (and I of course will be there for them, too). I'm not going to let this stop me from enjoying my life. I'm not going to stop putting my trust in other people unless they give me reason to not to (which some people have). I'm moving on.

Thanksgiving yesterday was pretty good. One of the more enjoyable family gatherings I've been to. No one asked me what happened, I ate until I thought I'd puke, and I got to play a fun game of yahtzee with the family. Plus I didn't have to work, always a plus.

Plan for today? Nothing. lol. Watching movies and relaxing. Maybe getting something to eat with Ruth later, and seeing what everyone else is up to?

PS; I have never enjoyed calc so much. hahaha. :]

I just finished my paper for comp, so I'd thought I'd update. :]

I'm basically going to be dead after this next weekend. Or more like week.

Yesterday: School all day, than had a NM meeting until 11. Than I dropped off the calc book at Pat's. Is it wierd that I'll use any excuse lately just to see him for a little bit? Even if it's just to drop off our calc book, I just want to see him lol. Then I went to bed after that.

Today: I just finished the paper I have to write. I need to go get scrapbooking stuff, white shoes, and a bunch of other things that I need for the next few weeks. I did a load of laundry. I have readings I should probably do.I should work on my scrapbook pages. I have to go to a mixer tonight that I don't really want to go to. It doesn't even start until 9. I'd much rather be with the girls watching Grey's and getting things done. I'm planning on leaving early.

Friday: I have class from 1130-1220. Then I'm going to this new member summit for a little bit. Then I have to work from 4 to 1145. I'm missing out shopping and a movie with some girls from my soc. class which I'm bummed about. It'll be a long night because HSM3 is coming out. Blahhhh.

Saturay: The Michigan v. State game! I'm excited for this one. I'll be out in Ann Arbor all day. Then after I have to go the New Member sleep over which I'm excited about but I'm bummed that I'm going to miss out on going to a haunted house with friends. :[ I won't get any sleep that night...

Sunday: I have to go from the sleepover, with no sleep, to work. 10-6. Then I'm going to go home and do homework and watch the Amazing Race and Desperate Housewives and go to bed as soon as they're over.

Monday: School alllll day. Than an active meeting at 9 until whenever that gets out.

Tuesday: I work 10:15-4. Then after I actually have time to relax/get more gear done!!

I'm learning time management skills.

I've been sucking down water all morning. I'm giving blood later and I'm terrified. I have had to pee 3 times since I got up at 10.

But things have been going ok.

My laptop broke last weekend. HUGE bummer. Hopefully it'll be fixed and on it's way home very soon. This past month (WEEK) has been super stressful. I stressed out hardcore about getting my paddle done, but I really didn't have too much to worry about. It didn't take nearly as long as I had anticipated, and I finished early. :] I liked the way it turned out. The big/lil dinner Sunday night was SO fun. :] I can't wait for November 1st. I've been stressing out and I just can't wait for everything settle down so I can relax. Though I have to say, this morning has been super relaxing. I woke up at 10, watched Desperate Housewives, and started a paper (not that this is relaxing, but it hasn't been bad haha).

Getting the chance to watch Grey's on Thursday with Jess, Colette, and Shannon on Thursday was so good. I love those girls, and I hate that it's so hard to hang out lately. :/

Saturday was good, too. A bunch of people went over to Pat's to watch some football. Michigan lost, but so did State, so it's ok. We couldn't find a haunted house, but we did rent Saw 4. I can't wait to see Saw 5!

Later I'm giving blood for the first time (AHH). I'm making my mom take me because I'm scared I wouldn't be able to drive home or something. Then later I'm hanging out with my big, Ruth :] I'll probably just do homework and gear until then, because Pat's been up all night playing Fable II haha.

Oh man things have busy.

Can I just say I'm super excited to watch Grey's tonight? Because I am. And I'm just posting to waste some time before I go over to shannon's later to watch it.

Yesterday was a long day. Took my sociology test which I think went okay. Hopefully getting that back Monday. He hasn't even given us our quizes back from last week and I just want to know how I did! I really like our teacher. We kind of get off subject all the time in that class, but it usually ends up relating to whatever we're talking about. And it's bascially all just a lot of reading. But it's interesting, and I think it's a little weird that I don't mind reading my soc book lol.

I did some homework and gear and tried to figure out Mathematica for my calc class. That did not go well. I have no idea how to do it, and my teacher is no help. He doesn't even know how to use it that well, he just wants us to figure it out. Hopefully Pat can help me out on that one. :]

Then we had a new member meeting which was always fun. I know my Greek alphabet pretty dang well! lol and we for sure have dates for the big/lil dinner and the sleepover. I'm excited for all of it :] It just makes it hard to plan around 17 girl's schedules. I'd say we've done a pretty good job so far.

Today I got up and actually exercised. I'm trying to get in better shape. It does not help that my big sister has gotten me a TON of reese's. Not to mention a TON of super cute gifts all this week. We've been spoiled. All the stuff I've gotten has been great and I can't wait to find out who my big is. Then I went and bought my paddle. I think tomorrow I'm gonna go get spray paint so I can paint it sometime this weekend. Then I super cleaned my room :] Did some homework. Then me, Karra, and Amanda carved some pumpkins for our project lovies :] Karra's had a cleft lip. It was a good time haha. And in a little bit, I'm going over to Shannon's to watch Grey's! I'm so excited to see her and Colette. It's been too stupid long. :[

Tomorrow's Friday! No work for me! Who's up for some funz!?

So I haven't posted anything in a while, but things have been going alright. I've had my ups and downs the past couple of weeks. I'm still adjusting. But things with the sorority have been picking up, and all the girls are so great :]

Friday, Pat and I saw Nick and Nora's Infinite Playlist. I liked it a lot. :] Then I ended up going to bed kind of early haha. I was tired.

Saturday was the Michigan. We lost. It was cold. But I still had a good time none the less. Then I went over to Nina's house to hang out because it was her 18th birthday. Her brother made her a cake from scratch. Why don't my brothers do that? Also got a lotto ticket. I lost. lol

Sunday, I got to take a survey and made an easy $30. Pat came over and I made cupcakes for the bake sale tomorrow. We took an awesome nap, and then I had to work 415-11. It was extremely slow and boring, but hey, it was the only day I had to work this week.

Today was school alllll day. I got an A on my comp paper which I was stoked about. :] I also got my first present from my big! I want to know who it is now, but I'll find out in a week. :] My math teacher loaded on the homework today. Of course.

I found out today that a boy on my brother's old soccer team was in a car accident and died this past weekend. He's 14 years old. I couldn't even imagine what I would do if that had been one of my brothers. As much as I complain about them, I couldn't even imagine my life without the two of them. That had to be devastating for that family, because I'm depressed just thinking about it. It really makes me thankful.

Well. It's been a long week. Where to start?

I went to the sorority recruitment thing today and on Tuesday. If I do it, there is only one that I would want to join. They're the only ones I had actual conversations with, the only ones that really asked me about me it seemed. They do a bunch of fun volunteer work. School is really important to all of them, they help each other out. They work out every week (something I've been meaning to do lol). They read Twilight (YESSS). They're color is purple (also sweet). They all have one (or two) jobs outside of school and the sorority. I was really relaxed and myself around them. I really don't have any reason not to do it, because it seems like a good way to get involved in something that sounds fun. I'm still hesitant, though. Suggestions?

School in general has been getting a little better. I'm nervous for upcoming tests, so I'll be doing some major studying. But the time in between my classes goes by faster now. I have more stuff to do, and I'm enjoying most of my classes (NOT calc).

I'm pissed at AMC. For the first time in two and half years, I was not given ANY hours. None. Zip. Nadda. WTF? Seriously. I wrote an email to the manager who does the scheduling. She's one of the new managers, but honestly, NO hours? I'm PISSED.

At least there is the season premiere of Grey's and Desperate Housewives coming up. :]

week 1 down.. [Sep. 10th, 2008|10:28 pm]

Ahhhh. So I guess school is getting a tad bit better since last week. I really want to get involved and meet people, but I'm just not sure where to start.. The girls in the sorority are all really nice and cool, but I'm not sure if I should go that route or not..

My plan is to transfer to Ann Arbor next year. Hopefully that works out. Honestly, I don't think I'll be all that happy being at home this year. When I imagined my freshmen year of college, this is basically the complete opposite of how I had imagined it. Bleck. I want to change that next year. I want to live on campus, meet people in the dorms, play in a band, and do what I want to do. I miss music so much. It was honestly my favorite thing, and I feel a little lost without it... I'm bummed Dearborn has pretty much NO music program, and that I'd have to all the way to Ann Arbor to be part of that. I just want to live there, not waste all my gas going there twice a week and wishing I lived there.

I suggested the idea of transfering to my mom the other day, and she surprisingly was open to the idea. I was under the impression that she wanted me to stay home 2-3 years and would not want to be transfer at all. To save money. But. I want to transfer. I'm going to make it happen.

Not much has been going on lately. School. Work. Hanging out. Just thinking about getting through this year.

first day of school OVER. [Sep. 4th, 2008|03:29 pm]

I survived my first day of classes at UMD.

My first class was Art History 201 at 9:55, so I got there a little after 9 to figure out where everything was, and the parking wasn't even that bad! I finally figured it out, and found out that there was a couple people from CHS in my class, but I only knew Zach Gielow. My teacher is this kind of older lady who LOVES art history and just goes nuts with hand gestures in front of the lecture hall when she talks about it. I think I'm going to like this class. :]

After that I went to Comp, all the way in the science building. Why a comp class got stuck in the science building is beyond me. But I ended up having Enia, Jon Kelly, and Christine Saatio all in that class. I was pretty shocked at the number of CHS people in my classes. It doesn't seem like a bad class though. Pretty much adv. comp from last year except with a WAY cooler teacher than Ms. Rod (who was nuts). It's only 50 minutes three days a week which is awesome.

So I had an hour in between my comp and sociology class and I went to the UC and got some food and basically just wondered around because I knew absolutely no one and had no idea what to do with myself at this time. I felt pretty out of place. Hopefully this will get better. :/

Sociology I ended up having with Lauren Vella. The teacher seems cool. He makes you stand up when you're answering questions and you're not allowed to raise your hand, you just have to stand up, haha. It should be an interesting class. We have to do this video project where you make up your own country and kind of document life there. We'll see how that goes, lol.

I ended up going home for the 4 hour gap. I'll probably stay on Monday, but since I forgot to bring food with me and was still at a loss of what to do with myself, I went home and made piiza bagels and Pat came over for a little bit and I told him about my day. Then I had to leave for math around 5.

My math teacher is foreign and tries SO hard to be funny. He really knows what he's talking about though, and since I took the class last year, I don't think it'll be too bad. Hopefully. I don't remember too much about math last year, but hopefully it'll come back to me. And surprisingly no one from CHS was in that class.

Today I didn't even have class so I did the reading I needed to do for my classes and last night I had done a little bit of math homework. It was a pretty relaxing day I guess. Have to call into work at 5, but it's doubtful I'll get called in.

I can't decide if I like it at UMD or not. I think my goal is to try to transfer to Ann Arbor next year. I want to take summer classes but I'm not sure if I can use my scholarship during the summer semester. Anyone know about that gear? lol Because if I can transfer next year, I want to take summer classes.

Summer's over. [Sep. 2nd, 2008|11:25 pm]

Summer is over. And it went by sooo fast.

Monday morning I went to urgent care for my eye because my doctor's office was obviously closed because of the holiday. I found out I just have extreme allergies and that makes my eyes puff up. wtf? I've been taking a butt load of allergy stuff and some eye drops and my eye seems to be getting better. At least that's good news. Then I finally got the crap off my computer and got it ready for school. Then around 8, me, Luke, Jess, and Colette went out to Ann Arbor, got ice cream, and walked around. :] Me and Colette went over to Jess's after to watch Gossip Girl but unfortunatly Jess didn't remember to rewind the tape. So no Gossip Girls for us. Pat also won $590 in a Guitar Hero competition which is awesome! :]

Today I got up and was actually productive for awhile. I went to the bank, CVS, then cleaned my room and organized my school stuff. :] Then I relaxed, went to Pat's for a little bit to hang out before work. Work tonight was the SLOWEST night ever. AMC was practically empty. It made for a long 5 hours.

Should go relax. And sleep. School in the AM.

First football game yesterday :] [Aug. 31st, 2008|01:22 pm]

Yesterday was my first Michigan football game! I had a good time :] Pat picked me up around 11:45 and we headed out to Ann Arbor. We parked, walked around Ann Arbor and found Pat's family's tailgating spot where we hung out there and ate. Then around 2:45 we headed into the stadium! By the second quarter we found people we knew and moved to sit with them, and thankfully we were in the shade basically the whole time! Even though we lost, I still had a good time. I was a little, I guess, timid, at first, but it's so much more fun if you get into the game and go along with everything the student section does. The next game is next Saturday and I'm pretty excited for it :] I'm glad I got to experience a little bit of what life is like in Ann Arbor. I want to go out there more and see what it's like and just hang out. After the game, Luke, Colette, and Pat came over to hang out, which is always a good time. :]

The only bummer about yesterday (and today) is that my right eye is like, swollen half shut.I look ridiculous and I have no idea what's going on with it. I just hope that it gets better by Wednesday for my first day of school. My parents are out of town until later today, so I don't have the insurance info. I'm not sure why mom thought it was a good idea to keep the all of insurance stuff in her purse while she was out of town while my brothers and I are at home. So we'll see. If it doesn't get better I'm going to urgent care tomorrow for sure.

Today I guess I'm just sitting around until I have to work at 6. I might go to Best Buy and the mall a little later with Pat assuming he wakes up anytime soon. I want to get a Michigan hat lol. I don't look all that great in hats, but Pat's came in handy yesterday at the game lol.
