love today...

Well. I just got my ass whooped by a biology test. That was an excellent start to my wednesday. I only 100% knew the answer to one question. I have a French test this afternoon, but that I am not worried about. The Mika concert was AWESOME! The best part was that he had messed up his foot/ankle and was wearing a moon-boot just like I had to wear this summer. It made my day. This picture is of Maddie and I in the lobby of the Moore theatre in Seattle. I'm going to try to squeeze in a quick nap before I head to Anthropology instead of posting photos of my new toy like I originally intended. They will come tomorrow or Friday methinks.

fish are friends...

A few nighttime photos of my lovely Olive for this dreary monday morning. Good news though, I got a 9.5/10 on my biology quiz, plus 3 extra credit points for a 12.5. That is the best score I've had all year. Also, my friend Maddie won tickets to the Mika concert in Seattle tonight, so we're going to that!

fall break: Seattle edition.

Yesterday was the last day of my fall break. I spent saturday working, Monday sleeping and working, and Tuesday working. But Sunday I went to Seattle and visited Mariska and Emily. Mariska and I studied at a café, studied at the park, and studied in the SU business building. I had the most delicious toast EVER for dinner. Slathered with crunchy peanut butter and jam, and just the way I like it. Mariska found a chessboard and legitimately awesome chess set at the park which we took back to her room and investigated. It had all the pieces except for one Pawn, which she replaced with a Russian stacking doll. We also went to Atlas, which is an awesome second hand store that also happens to have a record section. I went on a major shopping spree and spent 4 dollars. I bought the Simon and Garfunkel's Live in Central Park record, Simon and Garfunkel's Parsley Sage Rosemary and Thyme, Steve Miller Band's Fly Like an Eagle, and Cat Steven's Foreigner. It was a good and cheap trip. I enjoyed myself immensely. I hope everyone else had a good weekend, and now I'm back to the grind for a short week of class. <3

busy busy...

This week is my midterms week. Somehow, I ended up with only one midterm. One would think that this is a happy thing, but instead, this one midterm is not only one that requires a lot of preparation, but it is also in a class that I care about, therefore I have spent the last couple days studying my little hiney off for my history midterm. I wrote 8 essay outlines, only one of which I will have to use. But I'm excited that I know the information, I'm excited to take the test, and I'm excited to be a history major. So although studying hard and consistently is not something I've ever had to do, and is not something I tend to like, history requires it of me, and I will do as history requires.

The above is an illustration of my friends and myself. Clockwise from the top left is Maddie, Madie (my former roommate), Hannah from Chicago, and myself.

Well, I am going to continue on my long and arduous journey through the first 8 centuries of Europe including (but not limited to) the rise of Christianity, the invasion by the Germanic tribes, the fall of Rome, the rise of aseticism and monasticism, the rise of the Byzantine Empire, the rise of the Arab Empire, and the fall of Byzantium to the Arabic Empire.

This weekend is fall break, and hopefully I will get to take some photos that I can p0st. Have an awesome Thursday and Friday!

good ol' ted.

I'm still sick, although I think I'm on the mend. I was pretty miserable for a while last night. My sinuses were so full and so full of pressure that I had a migraine which in turn made me nauseous. It was ridiculous. So I sat in my tiny bathroom with the shower on full blast for a while, just breathing steam, then I huffed some vicks vapour rub, then I begged a friend to run to the drugstore and buy me decongestant. Something worked in the end, and I was given relief. Biology test today and anthropology project due. I'm not going to work this weekend because I'm coughing and spewing everywhere. I hope everyone else is staying healthy. <3

Slow on the update...

I apologize for my lack of updates. I've just been incredibly busy. I got a job and have been working hard and studying hard and playing hard. Occasionally (frequently) I nap hard too. So here is a photo of Serena and myself that I've fiddled with. It is becoming fall here, and other than being sick (currently) I'm enjoying it thoroughly. I hope everyone else is enjoying the autumn and I'll try to update more frequently from here on out!
