what up.

Its Friday. Woo. This has been a busy week, kinda. I have a photography assignment due on Monday so I have been busy trying to get in and out of the dark room. I would have finished it today....but i ran out of paper. Just my luck.

Last night, I went to doughnuts for the first time. Our doughnut shop opens at 3 a.m. for some odd reason, and its the cool thing to go get doughnuts right when the open. So i went, and I ate one doughnut and then my stomach started to hurt. I knew that was going to happen, i cannot have sweets that early/late. But now i can say i have actually been. I have had the idea of going to doughnuts all semester, but i usually end up going to bed because it sounds much more appealing.

I started watching a new show called Harper's Island. Its about this murderer who came to the island and killed tons of people. Well they thought he was dead, maybe he is, but somebody is killing people again. Its creepy...but i dont know how long it will last. I mean you can only kill so many people.

Tuesday after fuel everyone went to Waffle House, which made me very happy. I love waffle house...its the bomb. Then all like 8 of us piled into Bekah's tiny car and went to the park to play. It was fun and awkward, which is always the case with our friends...but i like it. =)

Tomorrow morning i have driving school. Its gonna possibly be the more boring day of my life. I have to stay there from 9 am until 4 pm. Really?? That is just ridiculous. I know how to drive, I just like to drive a little faster than you are suppose to.

I am SUPER pumped about Sunday. I am trying out for the Arkansas Sirens, which is the dance team for the Arkansas Twisters arena football team. Not that i really enjoy the football that much, i just want to dance. Every time I got back home and watch the competitions, I am just dying to get on the stage. Its probably the thing i miss most about being at home and high school. So yeah, this would be kind of like that. I would get to dance and perform...and that makes me happy. Oh yeah, and i get paid to do it. what up!

Chelsea, Zach, and I have been watching a lot of How I Met Your Mother. Absolutely love it. It cracks my stuff up. So if your not a fan...you should definitely consider becoming one. =)

Coffee Fridays.

On Fridays, Kate Gentry Chelsea and I have this little ritual that we partake in called Coffee Friday. Its no surprise that we spend the start of the weekend at starbucks. This is one of my favorite times of the weeks because we get to sit around and talk for hours, with no rush. Its really nice. Usually our conversations go in the direction of what our future will be like. Careers, Friends, Houses, Weddings, Kids, Families, all those sorts. Not that any of us are close to that, especially me. I am the one who is like "really, this topic is brought up again." I guess I am not normal since I can totally wait like 20 more years before I have a family and become a soccer mom. Okay, maybe not 20 but you catch my drift. I do admit it is fun to talk about. I just want a town house in the City over a screaming toddler at the moment. And a golden lab, but i have to wait for that too. I have a long life ahead of me and I am trying not to rush it yet enjoy it.

Today, I slept in which was amazing. Then i headed to Conway and spent the day with my Memaw, Aunts and Mother. We had Easter dinner, I guess you could say. We all went shopping, to Target and Lowes, which was much more fun than it sounds. My mom and her sisters are hilarious, we laughed non-stop especially when my mom requested the starbucks lady to blend a banana into her frappe. On top of that weird combination she made me order it. So we laughed until they almost peed their britches. We also moved furniture around in my aunts house and just spent time together. It was fun because we dont get to do that often.

the past two days.

The past two days have been busy and fun. Explosive combination...i know. The busy part of course is school. Here is a list of all the things I had to accomplish on Tuesday.
1. write a speech for PRSSA
2. Physical Science homework
3. Lab Quiz
4. Spanish take home test and workbook
5. Study for in class Spanish exam
6. Homework for my Spanish test

Luckily, I finished all these things and still had a little playtime. I like to blog about my playtime because it is always completely random. Tuesday we had dinner at BK Lounge (aka Burger King) and then we came back to campus and played a fun little game. This game was to see who could get Josh's glove stuck in the tree. Yes, we actually played this game for about 45 minutes, and even had the kids from the other side of the tracks play with. The glove got stuck and then the game turned into who could get it unstuck. As boring as it sounds, it was very entertaining.
The cool kids on the play ground.


Onto more news, today was Wednesday. (for those who didnt know) Wednesdays are my busiest days of the week. I have class from 9 a.m. till 5 p.m. with only one break, that does not last long enough. I had two test today which I think went better than I had predicted that they would. That was a great relief. Then I had to give a speech. Speaking in front of people makes me want to throw up. I hate it, and most people would not guess that because I am usually the loud one who tends to make a complete idiot of herself, but i still hate it. I was running for this position on the PRSSA board, and that is why i had to give this horrid speech. So I wrote this speech, then I got up to speak and totally did not even look at my paper. Just winged it. I have realized that I would much rather just wing something instead of stress about it. Needless to say, I got the position. Possibly because I was the only one running. I am pretty sure if there was someone else running against me I would have been royally screwed, because my improv speech sucked. O well. I am super excited about this position because 1. it is pretty much what I kinda want to do when I graduate and 2. I think we get to go to San Diego in the fall. HOW TIGHT IS THAT.

SOFTBALL, woot woot. Us Rookies had a game today. I was late but I still made it in time to get a little pt. We lost....surprise surprise. We are probably the worst team ever and no one even cares that we completely humiliate ourselves. We just have fun, which is what intramural softball is all about in my book. I mean I do really wish that we could actually be good, but I hate to be serious so I enjoy losing and making fun of us. Like when I throw runners out that dont exist. Yeah, that happened. The Bandit game went almost like the Rookies game, except they make losing look good, in a round about way. Shout out to my bandits. I have to say...one of my favorite things about spring is hanging out at the ballpark. It makes me happy!

Reppin' the Bandits.



A lot happened today....like i experienced a super embarrassing moment. I would prolly not blog about this, but i know that my really close friends are the only ones who read my blog so what the crap. The story goes as follows. Danielle was in the shower. I had to go to the bathroom. I made a huge ordeal about how bad i needed to go. Danielle gets out, and I enter the bathroom. I am just chillin and take my sweet time. So yeah I walk out of the bathroom and there is a group of like 5 (who are not my closest of friends) just chillin outside our bathroom. really?? FML. If this doesnt sound embarrassing...wait till it happens to you.

Last but not least....I have a shout out. Its to my roomie Chelsea "c squared" Cady. For those of you who dont know her, she is the best roommate ever. And i am really sad that we wont be rooming together next year, because I am living off campus. But anywho, I love Chelsea. You are one of my best friends, and you actually will tell me what you think and not what i want to hear. and you make me smile and i think you are super cool, even when Jennifer compared you to the boring "girlfriend at the time". I will be around as much as I am next year so dont you worry little one, I Refuse to go MIA. I love you, and just want you to know. PS. If anybody reading this doesnt know Chelsea, check out her blog and you will get a preview of the wonderful, NEAT person she is. NEAT is a good thing in our book.


Chels and I watching the cool glove game.

O yeah. I hate when you eat peanut butter crackers because crumbs get EVERYWHERE. And i also dont like when you eat a whole package of sunflower seeds and your mouth goes numb. not cool.

burrrr...

It was cold as balls at our softball game tonight. Yes "cold as balls" qualifies for an official temperature....its when you cant feel your limbs. Not cool. Chelsea hates when anything is referred to "as balls" so i try to refrain. So it was cold, and we got run ruled! I thought it would be a sweet play to throw the imaginary runner out at third. ha. I blame it on the hottie i was checkin out in the stands, or thats what i am saying. We stayed for the Bandits game, the won. They played the drunk golfers and it was ENTERTAINING and cold.

Chelsea, Zach, and I decided to play this lets jump on the bad from halfway across the room game. Its hard, and we look retarted. I plan to post of video of Chels' try....its funny. Although it is a really dump thing to play, its fun. Oh what we give for cheap thrills.

i have to write a speech and give it in order to get the PRSSA position. F my life.
Everyone is sick, Arkansas weather sucks!!

la de da.

I really don't have much to talk about at the moment but i am blogging none the less. This weekend I was in another pageant, Miss North Pulaski County. I got first runner up, and also got the peoples choice award and Interview winner. I was super pumped about the interview thing because in the last pageant my interview sucked royally. I was proud of myself for improving that! Maybe one of these days I will win and make it to Miss Arkansas.

After the pageant the mom and I went to waffle house. Then I met up with my sister and we hung out for awhile. That was fun until I had to take her to the E.R. Out of nowhere she starts crying, throwing up, and saying she cant breath. I was just like great, what do i do! My dad told me to take her to the e.r. so that's what i did. I felt bad because i was laughing at her. Not because I thought it was funny, but like I said in my last blog I laugh at inappropriate times. ha I left the E.R. around 2 a.m. and went home to sleep. The rents and Syd didn't get home till like 4...CRAZY!

This afternoon we had a softball game. We lost.. =( It was SOOOOO COLD, and Windy. And the dust/sand was blowing everywhere. It was rather miserable, and we have to play in that crap again tomorrow! Hopefully we will win though!!

Watched the ACM Awards tonight. They were good, but I think George should have won some more awards but that's just because he is my all time fav. My respect level for Matthew McConaughey because he totally got some chicks back in the day by telling them he designed George Straits boots. Genius, if i don't say. =)

peace.

entertainment for the night.




Hungry Hungry Hippos was a major success. I never thought abunch of college kids would find joy in a game meant for 4 year olds, but it was actually A LOT of fun! There will definitely be more game nights. I was sad because Chelsea took home apples to apples, which is a super fun game. At least I think so. After about an hour of hippo fun we decided to rent a movie. So after spending like 30 minutes contemplating in Hastings...we finally found Marley and Me. It was prolly the best movie I have seen in a long time. It was sooooo sad, I cried. Actually I am pretty sure we ALL cried, a lot. Then Chelsea got laughed at because she was bawling, then i laughed about the Brandons dog Kisha dying. Which is not funny at all, I just laugh at inappropriate times. Then we all told our dog stories and went to bed. ha Oh what an exciting night.

In my last blog I forgot to mention the first Bandits game of the season. They played their rival team, the Highlanders....bryce. ha Needless to say it was the greatest success but it was fun. Chelsea, Katie, Gentry, and I put together some flags and walk out songs for the boys. It was pretty entertaining if I dont say so myself.

snap back to reality.

Spring break was sooo amazing. It rained the last two days we were there which was kind of crappy, but we spent as much time on the beach as possible. The weather was peeerrfect. Not too hot, but not too cold. I wish I would have got more sun but I guess that is just a reason to go back. Although it was spring break, it wasnt as crazy as i expected to be. I mean i went with a pretty crazy group, but we all know to keep our heads on straight so it made for a new group. Jackie, Ashley, and I went out by ourselves one night, which was a BLAST. We made up fake names and life stories to tell everyone we meet. Even thought we have way southern accents somehow they believed we were from Rhode Island. I know right, who is from Rhode Island. It was fun to pretend, working on my acting skills. We also got our ears pierced. Yay!! When i went down there i was thinking i am not going to spend that much money..yeah right. It coast way too much to go out to eat and to the clubs. Since we werent 21 we had to pay 20 dollars every time we went out witch is bogus. And then so restaurants are just ridiculous, except for Dirty Dicks. We got all you can eat shrimp and crap legs and it was well worth the 40 bucks! And i ate every single bit i could eat! =) Needless to say I cant wait till next Spring Break!!

Now that I am back to reality...school still is crazy. I am so stressed out and busy. I have to keep all my grades up which is a pain to do when you dont like to study! My only goal is to keep my scholarship...therefore my school will still be paid for and my parents will be happy. So i am keeping my fingers crossed that it happens.

I am in another pageant this weekend. Also my last one for the year. It would be cool to win because then I could go to Miss Arkansas which would be an amazing experience. I am just ready to get this one over with. The interviews make me super nervous, because they ask the craziest questions sometimes. And I just hope my dance looks good because i havent done it since the last pageant. so I am NERVOUS....wish me luck.

BLAH. i need a job soooo bad. I am poor, no joke. After the pageant and school, that is my next goal to get a job. I hate having to depend on my parents for money because I know they dont have money to give me all the time, so it just sucks. I just got to find someone to hire me. ha

I am about to play Hungry Hungry Hippo...and I am pumped. B and I got this great inspiration from gossip girl. Its going to be EPIC.
