Everything in life is work. Whether you are managing two Dairy Queens all summer, teaching a mute boy how to sign, or setting up a bounce house. It is all work. I have had to work since i was young. When I was about 12 years old my parents bought a Dairy Queen. Now that is a lot of work. Ever since then DQ has been my second home, my second parent. It's weird to think about but DQ is paying for me to go to college, it is laying down the groundwork for my future. Granted my parents' work there, but still, without these two Dairy Queens' life would be a lot more work. It all comes down to work, getting into bed, sleeping, and dreaming is even work, so really you are never not busy, your just doing less work than your used to.
So i went to St.Cloud this weekend and it was homecoming. I have never seen so many cops in my whole entire life. That shit was crazy. We had to watch our every move like we were in Iraq or some shit. You couldn't even think about drinking...koolaid anywhere near the dorms, or 2 miles from campus for that matter. They were crackin down on underage koolaid drinkers like crazy. So long story short I did no koolaid drinking this weekend..........just beer (the root kind)
Ouch i am once again having a really hard time. This seems to be a reacuring theme in my blogs as of late. Weird. I am doing stem cell research. I am not very good at formatting papers and this one is 8 pages long. I am trying but I have written 2 pages in 3 hours. Ouch. I don't know what to do. It's not like im not going to do it. It's just how good will it be? We'll soon see i suppose.
So i underestimated college to the 100th degree. I assumed i could come here and take all kinds of classes and keep my grades up and my gpa at 3.7. hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha. That is the farthest thing from the truth ever. I am having the hardest time and thats all i can think about. Right now all i am trying to do is not fail. Which is very sad going from an A student to a kid i looked down on my whole life. But oh well i guess when life gives you lemons make lemonade.
On Tues. night i am finally going to Steady Tattoo to get a tat. It has been killing me since i have gotten here. I love tattoos so much. I have 3 of them already and i'm not even 19 yet. Addicting.........I think so. It is just going to be little but right now thats all i can afford. That should be able to tide me over till next week or so.
We got to go and have our conferences in english class. It didn't go so bad. I am slowy but surley learning a lot about my writing. I have realized in these past few months that I suck at writing a lot more than i thought. I thought that i could write a pretty decent paper. Or atleast pretend to write one. But not anymore. I have figured out that papers need a little thing called stucture. I am working on it hopefully by the end i will have it down pat.
IT SNOWED THIS WEEK YAH. I was so stoked when it started to snow i could hardly contain my glee. It was a little upsetting to see all of it leave us so quickly. There will be more to come for sure. I know this because my friend goes to school at UMD and they got atleast 2 inches of acumlative snow. AWESOME. He went snowboarding on Wed. I am so jealous. So hopefully soon the snow gods will grace minneapolis with their presence.
That movie on Friday was crazy. Well it was more hilarious then crazy i suppose. I just couldn't get over how proper the kids were. They were actting like they were 20 year olds in 7 year olds bodies. On the other hand you have a few kids that look like they should be in prison right now. I am very interested to see how this movie plays out. I really hope we have time to watch a lot of these movies
The Twins lost. Stupid. I have been watching them since the begging of all this hoopla, and to lose three straight to end the year is very dissapointing. I am already excited for next year. Its ok cause it means that i have more time to go and watch the Wild play. They won their season opener, so that is always a good sign. My family has season tickets so i will be out rooten on the Wild every week.
Should I be scared? There are so many different things to think about. I have seen people that go out and party the night of there teeth being pulled. One the other hand, I have seen people that have to go to the hospital and are laid up for months. So i am in a perdicament where i don't really know how to feel. I am not scared i am just a little worried. I'm more worried that i am not going to be able to make it to class on the right time or that i won't be able to be coherient in class. But as my roomate Justin says, " whatev."
So Wed. is the big day. It is the day that our first college english writing paper is due. I am a little worried, and i bet you are too. If your first draft was anything like mine, one word comes to mind, ouch. I personally thought i was on the right track, but little did i know. When it comes to the end and i actually get my grade i am sure that i will not be dissapointed. But until then i will be sleeping on pins and needles hoping for a good grade.
