And I feel unprepared. I'm sleeping better, and have developed a slight addiction for Carnation Instant Breakfast. I feel like I'm going to wake up stupid one of these days and not know what to do.

All that Jazz...

So, as most of you may know, I was pretty stressed toward the end of the semester. Just for some reason, I have hard first semesters, and this was the worst by far. Anyway, you also may know that I stopped going to my dance class because it was hard for me to get up that early, and it was too late to drop it. 'too bad,' I thought, 'I'll fail. But maybe that will make me try harder next time. That F will scare me.'

Well, I underestimated the greatness of a public education.

I got a 'B' in dance. A 'B'. I didn't write the papers (not one of the three). I missed class over a dozen times of a twice-a-week course. I DID NOT TAKE THE FINAL. And I passed. This is amazing. I almost laughed so hard I peed.

Just don't try, everyone. It will all turn out ok.



On another note, I will be returning to Iowa City tomorrow. With chili!

My christmas plans

mood: calmcalm
music: push the little daisies--ween

I am home to see my friends in Marshalltown. What I forgot was that most sane people (ie-not me) spend christmas with their families.

Come and entertain me. I am home by myself.

I watched four episodes of heroes, half of knocked up, and about a quarter of A Christmas Story in segments while I was doing all my laundry.

There is also no food or coffee in the house.

And no booze.

It's nice, though. I've never spent a holiday alone. I feel like it's training for real life.

something is rotten in the state of Denmark... or something like that

mood: busybusy

So, I'm back from Indiana. My aunt's funeral was very sad, and there were people and food and it was exhausting.

Last night, my dad and my sister and I went through a box of antique photographs of my great great grandmother, my great grandmother and my grandfather. They are hysterical. Apparently, my great grandmother was a big fan of dressing in men's clothing, and there are lots of fantastic pictures of her in vests and ties. Most of the pictures were taken in Oklahoma during the Dust Bowl, and they're just amazing. I'll post some of them when I get access to a scanner.

I'm at tbowl right now finishing a paper, then I'll be free to have fun and try to relax, but I'm not going to relax until I get this paper done.

Let's have fun, ok? Let's have fun after this week is over.

So here I am

Dec. 14th, 2007 | 06:27 pm

My aunt died last night, she had brain cancer. Mal already went home to see my dad. I don't know what to do. I'm at my mom's, and I feel nauseated and awful. I didn't even get out of bed until about an hour ago.

So, here I am.

Dead week...

Dec. 9th, 2007 | 07:24 pm
location: wonderwall
mood: draineddrained

You know how when things are down to the wire and you just really need to buckle down and get shit done, how sometimes you just fuck around on the internet and pretend you don't give a shit? Totally doing that right now. I just feel like a bum, I'm still in my pajamas. And I just ate about five pounds of instant mashed potatoes, because I am exceptionally attractive and do attractive things like that.

Anyway, I'm going to eventually write the paper that is due tomorrow, and also read the book for Quest, because my final is tomorrow, and memorize the rest of the poem for poetry class on tuesday.

I had a meeting with my poetry instructor, and she said I should apply for the undergraduate workshop next semester. I think that I might. Jury's still out.

I cannot believe I ate that many mashed potatoes.

I'm rambling now.

Does anyone have new year's plans? Still trying to decide what to do. I miss all of you, and as soon as I come up for air after this debacle of ridiculous class/test/school/life related things, I will spend quality time with each and every one of you.
