Como Se Llamas?

...I've got about seven, how about you?

Just got a call that my friend Janelle put that on a t-shirt. I'm pretty sure I know what I'm getting for Christmas. Seriously, how awesome is that? Makes me smile.

So far it's been a good week. Although today I just found out that I was cut from the RA process because I missed a step that I didn't know about, but surprisingly I'm okay with it. It gives me more time to look at an apartment. It's nice to finally know what I'm doing. Also, got GREAT news Sunday night! Instead of coming the first weekend in November, Jim is coming to visit THIS weekend! I cannot explain how happy this is making me and yet, at the same time how distracted I've become. Still, very happy.

I've been getting more sleep, which is great, but my brain has been supplying me with some weird dreams...How weird you ask? I am glad to tell you!

The dream started out I was in a car with my family going to a hotel for my wedding reception. I was in this beautiful white gown but I was so confused. We got there and it was beautiful and my husband was there (three guesses as to who it was). It felt like a whirlwind of activity and strangeness...our families were there and most of the senseis from our karate discipline. I was talking to one who then informed me that they were late because they were fighting evil popcorn kernels from space and one had shot him in the shoulder. I woke up just as my husband and I were going to cut the cake.

Thanks for the entertainment brain! Same time tomorrow night?

I like pie.

This is very unfortunate since all the Baker's Square resturants near my house have closed. And thus I have devised a plan: Pie Delivery by Attractive Members of the Opposite Sex.

Imagine; the doorbell rings, you approach the door and open it tenatively only to find a supermodel at your door with a box containing your favorite type of pie.


Also, you may have noticed I changed the look of the box. I figured it's a more fall-y look.

Busy Busy Busy

Well hello world! It appears I've returned. These past few weeks have been nuts for me...midterms just ended so that was a few weeks of my life spent stressing. My phone died so I had to go on adventure that culminated in me getting a pretty sweet new phone (full keyboard and touch....I feel so fancy). Same number, so nobody freak out.

This past weekend my uncle got married, so that was a ton of fun. I'm very happy since the wedding was beautiful, but I love his new wife, my new aunt. Once again, congrats!

Also, I'm very happy to say that my cousin finally had her baby! Morgan Joan was born on October 18th at 4:47 PM. From the pictures I've seen, she's absolutely beautiful. More congrats to my cousin and her husband for bringing such a beautiful young woman into the world!

As for me, my business hasn't stopped since coming back to school. I ended up dropping my Poli Sci class since my first test was a 66/100 and the professor doesn't believe in curves. The kicker? Class average was 68/100. Yeah, I got out at the last moment, thankfully. In the meantime I've been trying to decide to live in an apartment or take a post as an RA. I put in the application for RA yesterday, but I'm looking at apartments in the meantime. Trouble is, I'm not sure what to do. A friend of mine is in the same dilemma so we're waiting to find out what happens at the end of the semester before we make any decisions. Should the situation arise, we'll find an apartment together, which is nice. I honestly think I'd like to live in an apartment, but we'll see.

Jim was supposed to come visit this weekend but something came up so he's coming the first weekend in November instead. I understand completely that school comes first and in some ways it's better that we put this off. Gives me time to write the assload of papers that I need done, get my stuff in order, the usual. Still, it's been a stressful week and I could really use his company right now. I think I kinda spoiled myself by seeing him two weekend sin a row. Once again, I feel really left out from all the couples I know here since their significant other isn't too far away.

Maybe I just need a week off. I'd love that. Thanksgiving break is just about a month away, but it feels like FOREVER. Blargh. But it'll be worth it...at that point I should be done with a bunch of work, the production of A Few Good Men should be over, my RA interview will be done, and I can relax and go to karate with my friends. Also, see the gang! If we're lucky, we can see if Jim will come and meet you all at last (I'm talking to you, Anzer, Julia, Laura, and Janelle-face.). If not, well we can wait till New Years.

Man, this semester is both flying by and going super slow. Not sure how that's possible, but it is. On one hand days seem to drag on and on but on the other I've never got enough hours in the day to do everything I want or need to do. Just have to take it one day at a time.

Oh, I started tutoring high schoolers last week! It's a ton of fun. Sometimes frustrating, but that's all right. It comes with the territory. Here's hoping I can put in 25 hours before the end of the semester.

That Dream

I had this dream a while ago. It was cold and there was at least three feet of snow around me. I was in jeans and a t-shirt but it was like they were all made of super thin cotton. I was shivering outside my house because my parents had kicked me out for some reason. Standing there in the bright gold light from the windows Jim appears. I turn to him, hoping that he of all people would offer some comfort. He stands at a distance and tells me that he doesn't want to date me anymore, then turns and walks off, leaving me alone in the snow.

This is the second time I've had that dream. I don't know why it bothers me so much, even though I know it's a dream, but it stresses me out and just makes me down.

Overall not a fantastic day. Here's hoping tomorrow will be better.

Halfway There

And cue midterms. I've got two this week which isn't as bad as some other majors but they're both English so I'm going to be burying my nose into some texts for the next few days. It's been a while since I posted but I've been kinda busy. I can't even remember if it's been one or two weeks since I last went home. Argh. That's usually how I judge how long I've been at school...when I lose track of how long it's been since I've been home.

Days seem to be going so fast and so slow at the same time. Maybe it's because I've been distracted or what, but I just seem to be losing all track of time. I know that in two weeks I have to go back home for my uncle's wedding, which I'm super excited for. Rehearsal for A Few Good Men is going well and we're on track to be ready for performances November 12th and 13th.

Hint hint.

My friend Katy came and stayed with me this past weekend, which was nice to see someone from home, but it sucked because as soon as she went home I got really homesick. It was nice to have someone who knew what I was talking about when I referenced a specific thing from high school or home. I went to Tae Kwon Do with my friend Adam and didn't like it at all. Side kicks should be to the SIDE, not behind you. Silly martial arts.

October should be pretty fun though. The weather is getting colder, the leaves are starting to change colors, my cousin is having a baby in a few days, my uncle is getting married, I'm applying for RA, Jim is thinking about coming to visit at the end of October, and we're slowly moving towards Thanksgiving Break.

Also, my old phone gave up and decided to hate the world so I have a new one now. It's shiny and pretty. And it hates me too, but in very different ways. We just haven't learned to work with each other just yet. Play nice phone.
