Speaking of nature, it sounds like a natural disaster movie outside my window at my dorm. It has been a torrential downpour all day long, and now the winds are picking up badly too. And to think I had been waiting all week to go out tonight, ha ha. Nope, this girl is staying right in her dorm room and blogging, then watching Weeds :). Maybe I'll break out the hot cocoa finally. All of my first tests for my classes are out of the way. I think I failed my Nutrition one, atleast I feel like I did. Then Philosophy and Sociology were both good I think, I have those classes down pretty well. Journalism, I'm doing awful in journalism! This is the point where I have to pull myself together and get serious. I can't keep going to a journalism class without knowing what's going on in the world. Now I make sure to pick up a copy of both the New York Times and USA Today in the campus center every morning, and I make a habit to check the online news. Little by little I'm getting there. The more I do, the more interested I become in it all. I want to be one of those people who actually knows what is going on around them.
You know it has been a rough week when the lady making your parfait asks you what kind of granola you'd like and you reply "magic", when you meant to say maple.
Welcome to my life. :)
Currently reading and laughing with.
$4.99 at Borders, how can you go wrong? I have a friend who is attending the "Rally to Restore Sanity" at the end of October, I cannot wait to hear all about that :).
So I was in really high hopes last weekend to have a bunch of pictures from the annual Balloon Festival to share with you guys.. But the morning I forced myself to wake up and go, I got there too late with the traffic, and the balloons didn't actually take off anyways. Wind sucks.
Then that night I stayed out with friends way too late, so I didn't wake up in time to go the day the festival was actually good. I'm disappointed.
I'll get over it. In the future though, I'd really like to ride in a hot air balloon. I just think it has to be a totally weird feeling. It kind of scares me, but I think it would be awesome and undoubtedly worth it. I have to go home again this weekend. I really wish I had known that last weekend when I was making the decision of whether or not to go home, because if I had realized the next weekend would be my Grandpa's birthday, I would've waited, rather than making two trips like this. Coming home so often makes me feel like I look needy and homesick. I'm not.
I'm not really complaining though, I had a good time last weekend. Plus it's really awesome that Chris keeps driving down here for me, giving me rides. I'll remember all of his trips when I'm buying Christmas presents this year, haha :). I'm so glad tomorrow is Friday and this week is coming to an end. Goodbye September, you useless month. I'm ready for October and Halloween.
Anyone give their costume ideas any thought yet?? Right now I'm kind of down to Hermoine Granger, Olive Oyl, a scarecrow, or an old lady.
