5. A and A

So I can’t focus at my school’s library for a couple reasons.

1. People are loud

2. I run into people I know

3. (the main reason) There are always attractive guys that keep me distracted.

 

So now I go to the public library. It’s a lot quieter, I have less of a chance seeing people I know, and it’s mostly older people that come in here. All three reasons are taken care of.

 

The other day I was sitting in one of the cubicles with my ear buds in listening to the classical music for studying station on Pandora. I realized after some time there was a faint beat in the background of my music. I thought this was weird because since when does classical music have drums or make me want to bob my head to it.  It was really distracting and I couldn’t get any studying done.

Then I realized that two cubicles over there was a guy with headphones on listening to really loud rap music. I have nothing against rap music. I even listen to it on occasion. But when I’m studying I do not appreciate it one bit.  The older guy between us definitely wasn’t a fan either.

I would try to look over and give him my “turn that shit down!” face. The only problem was that he must of thought I was checking him out because he smiled…. awkward! Eventually he did end up leaving and I did get my studying done.

 

The awesome part of my week? I’m not really sure I have one. I usually have more awkward things happen to me than awesome ones any ways. I guess I can’t complain that my favorite hockey player (Sidney Crosby) got a hat trick and was named NHL’s 3rd star of the week. I think that would mostly be the awesome part of his week since he’s the one who accomplished it… right? I don’t know. That’s all I got.

 

In the mean time I’ll work on my “I’m not checking you out” face.

Where does the time go?

Well my time management lately has been WAY off.

 

I’ve been studying, working, training dogs, and going to class. Clearly I have lost sight of what’s really important here… Blogging!

 

Okay maybe it’s not more important than those other things… but I really need to start working it in better.

I can’t believe it is October already! It’s such a great month! The leaves start changing, pumpkin flavoring is in everything, its sweatshirt weather, and I get to scare the living day lights out of my roommate for the next 31 days. I’m not sure how it started last year, but I thought I would carry on the tradition this year as well. I think it is the best idea I’ve had; my roommate, not so much. She is a good sport about it though! I have also managed not to get punched in the face yet… *knock on wood 3x*

 

October may be my favorite month because I love scary movies, pumpkin pie, and Halloween. But I can’t leave out the most important fact of why this month is so great…

 

Hockey season has started people!!! Finally, I get a full season of this wonderful sport and even more thanks to the Winter Olympics. Seriously I don’t know what could be better. Oh wait, yes I do. To attend a game this year. I mean I can’t complain since I recently met two Minnesota Wilds players, but I mean when it comes to hockey I just can’t get enough. That adorable little girl from the Geico commercials knows what I’m talking about. “We want more, we want more!” Yes I do want as much hockey as possible!

 

I’ve had this strange idea to put my weird E.T. impression to good use and scare all the people heading downtown on the weekends. I won’t take my chances of getting hurt and wear my hockey gear of course, but I’m hoping to catch some good ones on camera.  If it works I will have to post some of the videos on here of course also.

 

Maybe this is why my time management is off. I’m too busy working on my E.T. impression, rather than writing.

Quick updates:

My Wednesday Standup Comedy night has yet to pick up. Maybe for good reason… I don’t really do standup comedy. I just have really good one liners in response to stupid people.  As long as my roommates still find me entertaining, I will just assume they are really good.

The cute guy from my physics class and I apparently have inside jokes now… I don’t even know what they are. I just laugh when he does since I can’t concentrate on anything he says…. I just try not to be my normal awkward self. It probably isn’t going as well as I imagine.

 

Oktoberfest was a mighty drunken success!! Partied all weekend with no hangover what-so-ever! I drank beer. Lots and lots of beer. I danced even more. My roommates and I sat on our front porch, drank, listened to music, and watched all the other drunk people pass us by while cars honked at us.

 

Well happy October everyone. Enjoy everything this month has to offer. Get out there and go scare some people!!!!

My Brain is Fried

Okay everyone my brain is NOT fried because I’ve been smoking too much weed or watching too many Spongebob Squarepants re-runs.

 

No my brain is fried because I have been working it too hard studying. I mean seriously Physics, Chemistry, Biology, and Statistics are supposed to cram in my head all at once? It’s outrageous!  When I think about studying more I almost wish there was an episode of Spongebob hot boxing his pineapple house with Squidward and Patrick. That could really brainwash a person.

 

Don’t ask. I have no idea why SpongeBob all of a sudden came into the picture. He just did alright?!? Stop asking so many questions or are you giving me an exam too?

Jasmine.

What?!

Eat a snickers.

Why?

You get a little testy when you’re hungry.

*takes one bite*

Better?

No I’m not fucking better! I still have 5 damn exams to take!!!! Why does one bite of a snickers all of a sudden cure hunger in those commercials anyways? If that’s all it took there would be a lot less problems don’t you think? And if I’m hungry I’m gonna make myself a freaking feast! Not eat a snickers. If a snickers won’t fix hunger then it sure as hell can’t ace my exams for me either!! Idiot.

 

All I know is that my coffee intake will be increasing immensely from now until after my exams. And if I don’t know anything on the exam then maybe I will just resort to filling in the bubbles that spell out “Fuck This Shit”. I mean everyone will be thinking it, I’ll just show it.

 

Thank goodness Oktoberfest (long weekend of everyone partying and drinking) is right after my exams. I’ll need it! Enjoy the week everyone… Because I can’t!

Word Vomit

Yesterday. Friday the 13th.

I was probably extra weird.

Weird?

Yes. Weird. Weird from excitement, caffeine, sugar, being overtired, and just naturally being weird.

It was a fantastic day. I had some good zingers that kept my roommates laughing. Sometimes they laugh at what I say so much that I start to think it’s a good idea to hold a comedy club at our house every Wednesday night where I’m the main act every week. I could probably sell out.

 

Obviously you’d sell out, you only have two couches!!

 

Oh yeah, right! But I’d sell out nevertheless!

 

Anyways, I had a wonderful Friday the 13th, as I always do. Got out of class early, someone bought me a cupcake, had Chinese food, and watched scary movies all night with my roommates.  Hmm something else happened… OH! The cute boy who sits next to me in Physics class decided to talk to me and didn’t stop!!! *happy dance* This WILL be continued on Monday when I have class with him again.

 

So anyways I have a service dog at my house this weekend. Wilbur. He’s a labradoodle and really sweet. (There’s a point with the dog, I promise)

My roommate *Grace has a friend who I don’t really care for. Before you think I’m being judgmental, let me explain why. Grace had a falling out with three of her friends, Beth, Kristi, and Roger let’s call them. Roger had led Grace on and then decided he wanted to be with Kristi.  Basically saving you from a lot of nonsense drama, cheating, and scandal, I’ll just tell you this led to a fight over a boy who isn’t even worth it. A lot of hurt feelings and tears later Kristi and Roger ended up dating and Grace wasn’t talking to any of them. Beth decided to talk about Grace and join forces with the new couple.  So overall these girls weren’t ever very nice to Grace and that automatically puts them on my bad list.   On top of this Beth lacks a lot of basic manners. Like drinking straight from OUR water pitcher instead of using a cup. I understand there’s people who drink from milk cartons and what not, but from their OWN milk carton. She threw up at the table when we all went out to dinner instead of getting up to go to the bathroom (there was plenty of time).  Everyone’s night was ruined and she decided to touch someone else’s food to eat without washing her hands. The list goes on. What to take from this is that she’s just rude.

 

Okay okay what the hell does this have to do with the dog?!?! Okay so a picture was posted on the good ‘ol Facebook of Wilbur. Beth must have seen it and asked Grace if she could come see the dog.  She came over while we were in the middle of watching Friday the 13th.  I was trying to watch the movie which I can do very easily even with people talking because I’ve learned how to block people out very well. Beth however, kept talking to me for some weird reason.  She asked me if it was the same dog I had last weekend at our party. I was baffled. Wilbur is a yellow labradoodle with long hair. The dog I had last week was black with short hair…. I tried to be nice like I always do but it was hard not to reply with a short “the dog last week was black.” And I can only imagine what my facial expression looked like. Then, there was a sex scene in the movie as with all new horror films lately.  She looks at the screen and screams “Are you guys watching sex?!?!” This one I couldn’t hold in, it just fell out of my mouth quicker than my brain could process. “Why the fuck would we be watching sex?!” I mean seriously, what answer was she expecting: “Yes, we decided to have a roommate bonding night and watch porn together!” I mean come on. Get your shit together, Beth!

 

Your outburst probably had to have been the sugar rush after your free cupcake.

 

Yeah, let’s chalk it up to that!

 

Well, I tried to be nice as long as I possibly could, but I guess the cats out of the bag that I’m not too fond of her.  My roommates minus Grace thought it was hilarious. Oh well if you’re not a nice person then I might have a hard time getting along with you.

 

Either way I had a great day even with mean girls. Nothing can get in the way of me and my Friday the 13ths. I celebrate no matter what.

 

Random act of kindness: I helped a woman pick up something she dropped in Starbucks today. She was embarrassed and I reassured her by saying I do worse things. She smiled and felt better. Glad I could help her out. Whoever reads this should do a RAOK and tell me about it. Those stories make me happy!

Are you sure you’re not a Psycho?

Okay so I am the only person in my family who enjoys Friday the 13ths and Halloween. I have no idea where I get it from.  I enjoy watching scary movies and going to haunted houses.  Yes I’m very aware of how weird I am.  Sometimes it is just fun to be scared. Well when it’s not warranted at least.

 

Anyway, today my new roommate and I went to the video store to rent some scary movies for tomorrow. I was already on a high from my coffee I had and was pretty freakin excited! So we are browsing through all the movies and not a whole lot is catching our eye. There’s a lot of scary movies that were released recently, but nothing that we really wanted to see. All of them were all exorcist and evil spirit films. Most people who know me know I don’t do well with ghosts. That’s something that doesn’t scare me in the fun way.  What I wanted was a gory, crazy, psycho, ax murderer on the loose kind of a scare.  We just were having no luck. And then… I spotted it. A movie that looked like it was what we needed. I read the back and there it was… Another exorcist movie. Ahhh the horror!!!!! Irritated, I slam the cover down and say “What is with all of these stupid ghost and exorcism movies?! Is it too much to ask for people to just kill each other!!!”

 

Let that just sink in for a moment….

 

Yeah, that definitely came out wrong. But I didn’t realize it until I saw some old man looking at me in horror. Then I finally thought about it, realized what I had just said, and then I could not stop laughing. I mean here I am looking for horror movies and yelling about people killing each other like some crazy person. Which I’m not. Obviously.

 

Needless to say that man got out of there as quick as he could and we got a pretty good laugh. I’m excited to order Chinese food while watching the three films we were able to finally pick out. Without any lives lost of course.

 

The lesson here is don’t go on a mass hunt for horror films while on a caffeine high. You might end up yelling things that could possibly peg you for a psycho killer.

 

Have a wonderful Friday the 13th everyone! I know I will!!

The Why’s of my life right now

Why?

 

Why you should hate the fact that school has started.

Because I now have less time to come on here to grace you with my lovely, awkward, sarcastic stories. I also have even less time to read all of your wonderful blogs daily.

 

Why you should always check your pockets.

Because I randomly found 5 bucks in my pocket and was able to treat myself to coffee when I was running low on energy on a Monday while on campus for school. Talk about a fantastic surprise!!

 

Why I should probably be studying instead of writing this.

Because I most likely will have a quiz tomorrow in one of my classes and I’m not well prepared yet.

 

Why that cute boy who sits next to me in class should want to get to know me.

Because I’m awesome (and single)…. Who needs a better reason than that!?

 

Why I will not be partying this weekend with all my other friends.

Because I feel like I am 80 years old and need to study all weekend. Exams are coming up fast!

 

Why I enjoy smiling at strangers.

Because either A. they smile back and makes them happier or B. they feel awkward. Either way it’s a win-win for me.

 

Why I cannot wait for October.

Um, hello. Hockey season starts! With the shortened season last year I could not be more ready for this season to be underway.

 

Why I really have nothing to complain about.

Life’s good.

 

Why you should all have a fantastic rest of your week.

Because you deserve to that’s why!!

 

Why you should all have a drink at some point this weekend.

Because I won’t be able to. Plain and simple. Don’t forget to cheers to me!

 

Keep on Keepin’ on everyone! The week is almost over!
