Today I am thankful. I am thankful for all the memories I’ve made in the last 3 years. Good memories or bad memories;¬†they are all blessings and lessons. They have helped me to become the person I am today. So today, I am thankful.

OOPS I did it again

Posted on

Yup. I am sick….AGAIN?! How this is even possible I don’t really know because I’ve been on antibiotics for the last week and a half. My ear infection has cleared up but I have managed to get even sicker with this wicked cough and congestion. I currently sound like a man and hack up a lung every ten minutes. Sexy right?! I’ve been getting sick a lot like this often so I decided to just go home for my final spring break (LAME..) and see an Ear, Nose and Throat specialist about this. Both my parents have had problems with their noses and such and both have had surgeries on their noses. I’m starting to wonder if I’m next. I am constantly congested and have had this lingering cough for about a year now. I’m not a smoker so the cough can’t be blamed on that so I don’t know what’s wrong with me really. ¬†Hopefully he can figure it out.¬†

If I had the option, I honestly probably could have slept this entire day. I slept until 1pm today which is super unusual for me. I’m usually awake by around 7:30 and 10:30 is normally the latest I’ll sleep. ¬†It’s been a long and stressful week and I’ve spent all my free time in the library. Because of this, I forced myself out of bed around 2:30pm to go be social for a little. I really could fall asleep again and ¬†just sleep for the night right now. I’m staying awake long enough to go out with my friend Jess for a little bit, then I plan to fall asleep on her couch watching movies. While everyone is raging tonight I shall be doing shots of Robotussin. WOOOOO. Oh well. I still have plenty of time to “live it up” before graduating. For now, I’ll just be sick on the couch.

Can’t sleep won’t sleep….

Posted on

Sooo it is currently 1:38am. I am wide awake. I am supposed to meet my friend in the library around 7am to study for our marine mammal identification quiz. Yay memorizing scientific names and distinguishing features! ¬†My alarm was set for 6am…. we will see about that. Since I can’t sleep what better to do with my time then blog, apply to more grad schools and study more. I’m a super exciting person at early hours of the morning I know. If anyone is currently up feel free to comment and say hi.¬†

That wtf moment

Posted on Updated on

Have you ever had one of those moments where you walk into a test feeling like you’re pretty well prepared? You then proceed to look at the test and your first reaction is WTF is this?! Yup, that was just my reaction to the test I just finished. It is safe to say I’m rather annoyed and frustrated. Ugh.

Date parties, parking tickets, antibiotics, and limos

Posted on

So for most people their night would just be starting right now. Mine is ending and I honestly couldn’t be more happy. Let’s start from the beginning.¬†

Today I woke up in one of those weird moods. It was one of those moods where I was more content to sit at home alone with a good book instead of socialize with people. Lucky me, tonight was my sororities Valentines Day date party. Oh joy. I had already promised my little and some friends that I would go. I been cooped up in my room all alone for the past two weeks studying for tests and such so I decided maybe some social interaction would be good for me. I forced myself out of bed and away from the book I had started. I didd invite a “date” for the night after all. Most of my guy friends here at school are gay. I would say a good 50% of them are. I convinced one of them, being my close friend and all, to be my date for tonight. He woke up this morning with a massive headache that lasted all day so….he didn’t end up coming. GREATTTTTT I’m dateless to a Valentines Day date party and the option to just suck it up and be drunk and alone the entire time is out the window because I’m still technically sick and on antibiotics. Drinking is a no no at the moment. So, I ¬†suck it up and begrudgingly go alone. Shortly after getting to the venue I’m in the bathroom when my good friend come in and breaks some news to me. She tells me that our friend tried to commit suicide last night. I am completely shocked. I hadn’t know the guy for too long but for as long as I’ve known him he has always been super nice and happy. I was speechless and honestly and didn’t know what to say. She told me the events of the night prior and how he had been texting her basically saying goodbye. Then she showed me his tweets. They were goodbye messages to the world. Thank God his attempt was not a success and someone found out in time. I just want to take a moment from this post and just say if anyone is ever considering taking their life please never do that. It is never worth it and it should NEVER be an option. I know life gets really hard sometimes and people struggle with mental illnesses but just remember their is always someone out there that loves you and would be completely heartbroken if you ever left this world. Please please please don’t ever hurt yourself. Just don’t.

 

With my sorority we don’t have sober drivers. It is actually against our bylaws. The chapter pays for cabs to take us to events so that everyone can get there and back safetly. Because of this, leaving the date party once I was there was not an option. None of the cabs would be back until 11 and it was only about 8pm at this time. I stay and tried to have a good time. I actually did for a while. It then just got kind of annoying once people started getting too drunk and starting doing what I predicted. They either we awkwardly sucking face with the boy they brought or in a corner crying about their date. I was just over it. Thank God the cabs were finally there. I walk out and to my surprise I see a limo amongst the cabs. Better yet I see my friends in the limo. I asked in they were going back to campus and they say yes. Naturally I jump in. Free ride home in a limo?! I’m down. That also was the 2nd time I have ever been in a limo. The first time was in preschool. Don’t ask. We take the limo back to campus and what do I find on my car. ¬†A PARKING TICKET. When I was driving to the pre game earlier that night I had told my friend, who I was driving, that I really didn’t want to park in said area. I knew that people had gotten tickets before but the spot we had originally parked in was pretty far from our destination and we were in heels. I suck in heels massively. We opted to park closer in said spot with her promising that if I did in fact get a ticket she would pay half. Looks like someone is going splitsies with me……..

After the events of tonight I am pretty damn happy to be reunited with my bed, food that is free, and my book.
