Wednesday Test – Good and Bad News

Back to normal formatting. Bold is what was supposed to happen. 🙂

8:00 – Wake up, check email, brush teeth, etc. My first alarm went off at 7:45…No way did I get up then.

8:10 – Devotional. Was really good today! Then I was supposed to do the rest of waking up things, like get dressed, etc. Instead, I got dressed as quickly as possible so I was finished by 8:30 and crawled back in bed until 8:45. Not mad about it at all.

9:00 – 11:00 – Class

11-12 – Clean roomNOPE. I tried to study for Strat instead, but was pretty sidetracked. Too many people to talk to!

12-1 – Organization meeting…yay pizza!

1-2 – Review for Strat – What a last minute ditch effort. I’m glad I did it, but at some point, it is what it is…

2-3:15 – Exam. I finished the exam in 20 minutes, which was awesome. For a lot of reasons. It means it could have been great or possibly horrible. I used this time to write a little blurb for poli sci, and so that was good. I talked to a lot of people about the test too. I talked to Ted about my weird class conflicts (Of course this WOULD happen to me as I’m trying to graduate, right?), and went to poli sci.

330-445 – Class. Got out early, around 4:30! Justin also texted me with the wonderful news of his AWESOME MCAT score that he got back!

5 – Mineralogy Lab finish – Yeah….not quite. I think I have to do it all tomorrow after class because I am not ready to do that part yet…At least…that’s what I’m telling myself. I used this time to clean my room, and also…this happened:
IMG_0772Yeah, I hate myself. It wasn’t resting on something steady enough on my desk I guess. I closed it and then it slid off onto the ground. I opened it and found it. I almost died inside. There are cracks all the way around, in a huge circle. And then one side (pictured) looks like it’s been hit with a hammer. You know how much that’s supposed to cost? Upwards of $700 from Apple…..what the heck, Apple…
This is why I can’t have nice things. Ever.

6 – Dinner with Phil – Tonight my grandma’s cousin took me to dinner! We normally go with Connor too, but…he was busy. We went to Mary’s, an Italian restaurant that I’ve apparently been going to for a really long time (even when I was little!) It was delicious, and helped take my mind off of the horror that happened a few moments before walking out the door.

7-8 – Memo Response – Nope…J came over and we talked and beat two levels of Plague…! He stayed til about 9. I also called my dad to ask if I he thought AppleCare would cover this…The answer is no…

8-9 – Free...used with J!

9-10 – Justin time. 🙂 I got to have this early!

Current time: 10:59. I’ve been sitting in my room on my computer, looking for repair places in the area and pricing screen repairs online…SIGH.

So…Long story short, I didn’t do homework again today. But nothing too pressing. Tomorrow I’m going to do laundry and go to coffee with some people so that will be good!

Now I’m going to just lay here…and just forget the world
and play Plague.




Tuesday Test – Failure

Sorry the format is totally different…I am just tired. Justin wanted a personalized “what I did today” since I didn’t have time to tell him. So.

Dear Justin:

8AM: I did actually wake up on time, and I did not succumb to the desire to go back to bed. So please be proud of that. I did my devotional, studied strat management and began brainstorming my memo response.

11: Class

12: Lunch and clean room – I wish my room had gotten more clean, but I have at least moved all the clothes that need to be washed into the hamper…

1-5: Work. I did a lot of work today, but I also did not follow my social media rule while I was there. So that was a failure. But I found some really great, funny, things online today. So. I’d say my life was enhanced for sure. Especially that goldfish article. That is my ACTUAL life.

5: Eat. also, Rachel and I got our second Birchboxes today and it was fun to open it!!!

6-730: read Poli Sci became more like 630-730.

730-930: Study Strat was kind of that, but didn’t get a whole lot done. because the preseason Thunder game in OKC was on, and they played the Nuggets, and how could i not watch it, even though I had to watch it illegally on FirstRow, and so yeah I was determined, but we won so it was great and la la la la la.

10: Justin came over about 9:20 and hung out and helped me with chem homework.

Pledges came to sing to us (best ever) around 1040, and now i’m here. It’s 11:40, I feel kind of under the weather and I’m late getting to bed! EEK!

TIME: 11:39PM

Evaluation: It’s only day 2 and I CAN’T HOLD MYSELF TOGETHER.

I should have studied more for strat but i just can’t. I’m out.

Monday Test – Relaxed…Too Relaxed


800 – Wake up, check email, brush teeth, etc.
COMPLETE, plus I got dressed.

810 – Devotional
Since I got dressed, this actually started about 815.

830 – dressed + breakfast(?)
Already dressed and who needs breakfast? I went to bed after I finished my devotional and slept until 845. Probably not the best life choice for the day, but…it sort of set the tone for the day.

9-11 – classes…
Not getting on my phone during chemistry was a tough battle. But I powered through, so be proud. We got out of English 5 minutes early, so I had time to run in the house and change shoes (I was wearing sandals and it was so. wet.).

11 – Campus tour
We got to give a bus tour today due to the rain. That was quite the new experience. But it went well, and met some new friends.

12 – Lunch with the prospies
I randomly started crying during the panel today, around the part of “Why did you come to TU?” It was super involuntary, but then I couldn’t stop…Sarah cried at the end of our football game last night because it was her last one. I couldn’t deal with her…now I AM her…

1 – Finish reading and do homework for Poli Sci.
Did it! I also made my phone lock screen the Thunder schedule. It’s casual.

2 – Class
We did review for the exam, and got out at 2:45 instead of 3:15…So i just chatted with people and looked up my course schedule for next semester. I found out two of my classes are at the same time, so that’s cool.

330 – Poli Sci
I was prepared and everything. 🙂

5 – Philanthropy dinner for Theta
Dinner only took a half hour! And I got to watch some sisters perform some songs which were awesome! After dinner, Emma and I set up a time for J and I to take pictures together!!!

6 – Justin time.
He picked me up and we went to an event in the apartment complex at 630. It was a “make desserts in a mug in the microwave” event. It was a fun and delicious surprise. 🙂 We then hung out until around 8:15.

7-10 – No plans
I should have planned something. Like studying for Strat. Or anything. Instead, I hung out with Haley for two hours, essentially. She has email subscribed to my blogs. So, hi baby! 🙂

10-1030 – Write letters for J
Every year during Initiation week, we can’t talk to boys. so J and I write letters to each other. It’s adorable, and I even looked at some of them today. 🙂 So I am getting a bit of a head start on those!

1035 – Blog/social media timeHere I am. But I also had to have mood music while I was blogging. So here’s these:

All in all, I really should have done something useful today, but I just…didn’t want too. Whooooops. Interesting life choices today, for sure. Not nearly as busy as I expected, and I am very pleased that I was prepared for Poli Sci, which is the typical concern.


Sunday Test – Rabbit

Today, I felt like this guy:

So I guess the best way to to this is show you my intended and actual game plans for the day.

Study Strat Management, do devotional and take medicine to Walgreens to get fulfilled. I woke up at 9 (alarm didn’t go off, sucks), and this was all accomplished before church. On the way home from Walgreens, I picked up J and we left from there, so I was a little bit unprepared at church because I didn’t have my Bible. But at least I was dressed, ya know? I think I could have studied more, but I scanned in all the pages I hadn’t read yet, so that was an accomplishment in itself. Would consider this COMPLETE.

Church and Bible study with J. We did this, and even had about 15 minutes to spare so we just sat and talked and smiled at each other. Gross, I know. COMPLETE +15.

Fix Compassion International Account, print articles for Poli Sci and check wedding email. No emails, articles printed, and I even had time to ship off an email to my sponsor girl. I also got dressed for flag football. COMPLETE.

Co-Ed flag football game.
We won. and crushed ’em. Because of me. Obviously. COMPLETE + WIN.

Read for Poli Sci. I neglected to notice that this is also when I should do things like eat food. I was home and reading by 4:37. I was slightly distracted part of the time, and didn’t finish my reading. But I did eat, so that’s good. And wrote 7QT on my phone. And even had time at 6:30 before 6:45 practice to write two thank you notes that weren’t in the plan and organize my binder early. Definitely did all these things and more, but reading not completed. I have allotted an hour tomorrow to finishing POL before class and so it should be able to be handled. I’d consider this COMPLETE.

Flag football practice + game. We lost (bummer), but ended at 8:27. COMPLETE

Shower and stuff before chapter. NOPE. Someone was in the shower. This is where my life starts going downhill…

Organize Binder…good thing I already did that…

Chapter. This was fine, except then my pledge class decided to have a separate meeting afterwards that lasted until 9:57.

Walk with J. NOPE. I told him he could come over while I was cleaning the kitchen (another thing I did not factor in.) He came over at 10:05, and he talked to me while I cleaned the microwave (I love him.). Then we sat on the porch until 10:25. He’s a trooper for letting me stick to my schedule. I wish we could just not..

Check social media, blog, 7QT, write organization email. I am not sending out an email. I’ll do it tomorrow when I have more information to send out in it. I checked my facebook and had 19 notifications. It was wonderful. So here I am blogging. I’ve got to go brush my teeth.

TIME: 11:012

Saturday #1: Control

I had planned on sleeping until I woke up, honestly. (ie no alarm)

Rachel wakes up yelling at 4:15. There’s water pouring all over her bed/head from the rain. She sleeps outside for a couple hours.

I wake up and lay in bed for awhile. I try to find a place to take my car in.

I took my car into Firestone at 11:30. They recommended at least 2 new tires, so I just told them to do them all. I went across to the mall while I was waiting (a long time!). I bought a pretzel and studied strat management for an hour and a half, wrote out my rigid life schedules for next week, and went shopping for a little bit. I bought two pairs of jeans (that one store-that-I’m-embarrassed-to-say-I-still-shop-at-because-I’m-22-years-old-but-it’s-the-only-place-I-can-wear-jeans was having a sale.) and a sweater (from somewhere slightly less embarrassing).

IMG_0712At 2 ish, Justin came and we had a late lunch together and then my car was (finally!) ready. It’s so shiny. I need to give it a car wash. Poor thing deserves it. I now have 4 new tires! And they’re aligned and I also needed an oil change. Yippeeeee!

We went back to his apartment and I studied more strat for awhile, but then got sleepy. We both ended up falling asleep (he was on the floor!) for about an hour at least… For new member retreat, they all dressed up like “tacky tourists”, which a lot of people took to mean “like a dad.” It was so funny. I borrowed Justin’s cargo shorts, and the fact that they were too big just made it even better. I made easymac when I got back to the house!

Then we went and “crashed” the new member retreat at 9 in our outfits. Maggie and I had fun running around playing tourist around the house…It’s embarrassing. But here’s my cute little touristy family:


and here’s my outfit in all its glory + my roomie:


We made a Sonic run on our way home, I showered, got in bed and wrote these past three posts. Whoooops.

Tomorrow morning is an early one, an 8:30 to start getting ready for next week, and continuing to study for strat. YAY.

Peace, yo.

Current time: 1:42AM

Expected asleep time: 1:57AM
