tuesday's always start out crazy. my cultural studies final is supposed to be on thursday and my teacher is blabbing on about things that we should have learned last week. i was the only one who wanted to switch the final to next week's regular final time so that made me feel kind of bad. wednesday at 10 am is not a big deal people! if it were friday at 4 i might understand... i'm sad because i realize i forgot my keys and my wallet at home and i can't get a bagel for lunch. in 3D i cut out the first side of my chair and it felt good that it was super easy to do. history of GD there was a grad student speaker and i actually liked his work... i take kayla and pick up jessica to barnes and noble to go get some wedding magazines. at the mall i get a subway footlong and when we get back to their place i eat the whole thing. this has only happened twice in my life. we watch a little bit of say yes to the dress and then me and kelsey make kayla go to bed since she hasn't slept in 48 hours! i go to the 3D studio and cut out the other half of my chair. they put a new blade on the jigsaw and that makes my life 100x easier. i clamp my 2 pieces together and sand it down and they're almost perfect. water polo is at 10 and we kill the first game. 17-5. the second game which wasn't supposed to happen til tomorrow was the championship game against the frat team which we lost 0-4. this is the 4th year in a row that it's happened that way. i go to bed after that.
i get up at 8:15 monday morning and get ready for the day. i meet up with travis at school to help him take pictures for his photo 3 project. we get all the pictures taken and see mattson on his way to health services. i get to class and i find out the big surprise that kayla got engaged on friday!! so exciting! the rest of the day is spent trying to work on classwork. i get home and i am jonesin for some french toast but none of my roommates have any eggs!! i am really sad and i decide to cook up my salmon i have in the freezer. lemon pepper and butter made it turn out pretty good! i dilly dally the rest of the day because no one is ever productive on a monday..
sunday me and travis got an early start to the day. got up around 10 and had breakfast. got out the door at noon and started to run errands. we went to the mall to pick up his watch he got fixed. then we head to men's warehouse to take pictures for his consumer behavior class. we go to home depot to get wood for my 3d project. it was freaking heavy! he helps me bring it to the studio and then drops me off at home. i take a shower and then i pick up mitch and jessica and we head to dunn brahs. we do some studying and head to rock hill for church. i got to hold a baby in the nursury! i was excited. we go back to jess and beau's house to watch the lovely bones. it was really good but realy suspenseful. i go home and head to bed around midnight.
saturday we woke up around 11. then i headed off the the 3D studio to cot some gates. i got all my gates cut to the right length. i com home at like 4 because i got everything done that i could. i watch some more summer heights high and wait for trav to get done studying. i go and over to his house to grill and hang out. jeremy comes to pick me up a little later and we head to alex's house at campus park. we pick up littlest molly on the way. tim gets there later with his new non-crashed car and goes to pick up travis. we end up playing strip categories... that got interesting.
trav woke up at 6am to try and get his photo book finished. we worked on that til 2. (i didn't get up til 10am though) i went home to relax and take a shower, til 7 when trav was finished stuyding. i filled mu my time watching summer heights high. after 7 i went to trav's and me and him and papa chuck and his ladyfriend jenny all went to china cafe for dinner. it was DELICIOUS! and a gift from mama gwynn. i was not a CPCer but travis was. after that we went to super one and redbox to get a movie and end up seeing jeremy and alex. they want to hang out buy i'm wiped out. we go back home and trav and chuck have a jam session before bed. i get to watch 2 whole episodes of say yes to the dress then it's finally bed time
thursday is the last day of the week and i couldn't wait for it to be over. i go to my cultural studies class at 10am expecting a productive day since our final is in a week. WRONG. same shit different day.
"uh, so this is great and everything but what do we actually need to know for the final?"
alex gets so mad and sassy at our teacher. she's crazy though. my 3D class was pretty productice and i got all my measurements made. history of GD we had a speaker and then i tried to listen for most of the class. i go down to the photo room to help trav with his photo project. it has to do with half naked people... i go home and get my stuff all put together to go to kayla's to get ready for the ski team banquet. i drive amanda, shana, mary, and sam over to beacon pointe. we have a fun time getting all hot. we take some pictures and make our way to grandma;s sports garden. travis looked sooo handsome in his suit! awards time came around and it had it's ups and downs. i was sad that i didn't get voted captain and kelsey did, but at the end ranger took into account all my hard work and effort and appointed me VP of fundraising or essentially VP number 2. she didn't want to "dethrone" time. i also got voted best attitude and that meant a lot to me because i try really hard to stay positive. we took more pictures and i went home to trav's to help him out some more with his photo project.
i woke up with my window open under my 4 layers of covers and made some pb&j toast and put some milk into a water bottle. i get into GD not really knowing what we were doing in class. i choose to use my favorite font- helvetica neue ultralight. i haven't decided what to focus on thought. i head to des tech. i have my pop can done and do up my packaging. i am excited to use fontographer next week! i drop off my petition in the music office and i hope that my guitar lessons get approved. i start to work on my history of GD project right away and watch some what not to wear and say yes to the dress. i eat half of my mashed potatoes and peas and take a break. i watch the gatebangers dominate at innertube water polo with Ann and then i head to travis's house to help him with homework. we go to bed around 2 am. i love snuggling!
this morning i woke up at travis's house. it's always so hard to get up in the morning when i'm there. i sleep with 4 layers of covers at home but at his place only 2. it's fine when he's there but i had a hard time falling asleep last night because he wasn't home yet. i'm so thankful that we fit together so well. physically, mentally, emotionally. everything. i gave him a ride and went home to shower quick. 10am intro to cultural studies with my crazy scatterbrained teacher. finding food and all in a days work presented today. even though the economy sucks here, we're still better off than so many other places. stats show that 1 in 3 children born after the year 2000 will be diabetic. and by 2030 the 18-24 year olds will all be too fat to fight. 11:40am i get my bagel (cinnamon raisin and honey cream cheese today) and head down to the ven den to see travis. he's not the "food shelf" or the "soup kitchen" (i don't remember which) but he gives me a little sip of soda (to build my [her] pride... PTSG) 12pm 3D design with sue. i get all my gates into the studio and determine i need to cut those to 20.5". can't afford to get wood at this point but i'll figure something out. 2pm amy tries to capture my attention with more current design of the 70s. vietnam. nixon. the most striking image was the battered uncle sam-i want out. not getting my 8 hours (of sleep) means exhaustion sets in around 3 and i way down for a nap. I panic because i think taylor's glove is lost, but jeremy tells me it's at his house. i get woken up at 5:30 with an invitation to DC chicken strip night. blake has 76 meals left after he lets me in. the ice cream was delicious. especially all the cherries and chocolate syrup. i contemplate drinking before the gatebangers softball game at 9 but i need to bring my A game. we suck. real bad. all of the guys on the other team are monster hitters and they were even short in the outfield. i get to bat twice and get out both times. they are surprised by my speed however. i miss two important outs as catcher and i leave the game with a sore knee and 0-19 loss. i get home, talk with my roommates. the word of the day: dribble. in combination with the word diddle it can induce vomiting in the modest. i get m rockstar pink can all finished and surf facebook. i then stumble upon stumbleupon.com. i've heard of it before, but never tried it. i sign up and choose: alcoholic drinks, weddings, design, graphic design, photo gear, photography, photoshop, relationships, sexual health, skiing, and tattoos. we'll see what i discover the next couple of days
