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.

The Special and the Paranoid

I have two cats.

 

I’m a dog person but have two pet cats.

 

How does that happen you ask?

Well 10 years ago I gave my mom an ultimatum that I either could get a dog or two cats. I thought the extra number would steer her towards the dog. Boy, was I wrong.

Ten years later and I still have the two little fur balls. And still no dog.

One is Rodney and the other is Raven. I don’t think you’re supposed to, but I do have a favorite. It’s not really a big secret. If you were to go through pictures on my phone you would see hundreds of pictures  of Rodney and maybe three of Raven. Even when I talk to my mom I always ask, “How is Rodney?” I never really inquire about Raven. Not because I don’t love her. But because she probably isn’t doing anything.

Raven is a little slow and we hold a cat special Olympics just for her every year. Most of the time she just sits in the dark in the basement and is very antisocial. She’s also been playing the same game of chase that ended 7 years ago… She’s so special. I blame it on the time when she took a running start and giant leap off the couch straight into the wall head first. Brain damage. It seriously was like out of an old time Warner Bros. cartoon as she slid down the wall in slow motion. My mom blames it on the time I sat on her because she blended in with our black couch. Lack of oxygen leading to brain damage. Poor cat has been through a lot, and we just laugh at her misfortunes. She does have cuteness working in her favor though. When she wants something she meows in the most adorable way and you can’t say no to her.

 

Rodney on the other hand is my baby and can’t ever be alone.  We have conversations all the time and my mom yells at us to shut up all the time.  My favorite is when I leave to go back to school and he tries to talk to my mom. I definitely have Skyped with him on multiple occasions.  He might be schizophrenic in the sense that he always thinks something is crawling on him and randomly bites himself, then runs around the house super fast making weird noises.  He likes to get high off of catnip. After rolling around in it he lays on his back with a glossy look in his eyes for awhile. Then he passes out for an hour.

 

I think I just have a pair of the world’s weirdest cats. Which is okay because I like weird and they fit right in to our family.

 

 rodney 1

He never really understands hide and seek. He always has some body part sticking out (usually his tail)

rodney 2

He likes birthdays and Christmas because He gets boxes as presents

rodney 4

He likes hockey just as much as I do.

raven

This is Raven on our treadmill… she doesn’t know she’s using it the wrong way.

Anyways, Next week after my exams I am going to go to the library and write all day non-stop so I can get back on track with writing on here almost every day again. I also won’t write about my cats…. once is even too much.

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!!!!

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!!

22 going on…80??

Finally I have time to relax! This two week of nonstop partying honestly has hit me like a ton of bricks since classes have started. I was hungover for two days, my back hurts, and I’m in bed by 9 o’ clock every night. Did I turn 22 or 80?

 

If I had to choose I would say the way I feel now is definitely worth the fun I’ve had to get to this point.

 

The Ke$ha concert was an absolute blast and I came out of it after literally taking a shower in glitter! And yes I dressed up to the T with my blue lipstick, glitter make-up, gold leggings, black combat boots, cat tank top, dollar sign earrings, and a cat ring. I definitely had been waiting for that moment for a very long time. Now before you judge my taste in music, just know that I have a love for the good old music too. Maybe I will write a blog about my favorite music next just to prove that I have a good taste in music as well. But hey, I’m in college and can dig a good song about drinking, sex, and hot boys. So sue me!

 

The booze cruise I went on is something that I cannot wait to do again.  It combined three great things: dancing, drinking, and boating. The beer was unlimited and the dj was jamming out. It was a good activity to choose for my birthday. The music choice was great for dancing until the dj started taking requests and the same guy kept returning up to the booth. Every single song after that was just dub step. I have nothing against dub step music, but one song is enough. 5 or 6? Now that’s just getting ridiculous there, sir! People started sitting down and going out on the deck after a while. Thank goodness the music master noticed and stopped taking requests from the dub step junkie. Sit down guy, you’re drunk!!! I definitely did want to do a rendition of Lonely Island’s “I’m on a boat” at some point… next time for sure though.

 

I was able to spend a few days with my mom at our family’s cabin on a lake to relax and rest from the late nights out.  My mom and I together however was just outrageous. We had laughing attacks countless number of times. If we would have stayed longer I probably would have gotten 6-pack abs! But between her running into the screen door 4 different times, me getting stuck half on the pier and half off because I got a cramp, and trying to find shapes out of a wall of rocks like a couple of stoners, it’s no wonder why we laughed so much. It’s a good thing it was just us two considering others would have thought we were just crazy. I hope my future boyfriend will understand.

 

My last night out was during Harley Fest in Milwaukee. My friend and I headed downtown and it was crazy down there! People were doing the wobble in the middle of the street, bikers were doing burnouts, and it was jam packed! Some drunk guy came up to me saying he saw me “400 minutes ago” and thought I was “hot”. (I had only been there for 30 minutes at that point) Well, uh, I think your sense of time is a little off buddy, because 400 minutes is over 6 hours. Thanks for the compliment though! I had beer and at one point I think I had a tequila red bull. I don’t know what gave me my hangover but after that was when I had the 2 dayer. I struck up a conversation with plenty of random people, and I might have scared some poor dad that just dropped his daughter off at college. Oh well, its college… shit happens. It was just an overall really good night.

 

Now I am back at school and going to class. The roommates and I already have a party planned for this weekend, and then Oktoberfest is at the end of the month. I guess my party days aren’t quite over yet.

 

I think that finally brought me back up to speed.  Good thing because I’ve missed writing!

 

Does anyone have any good/clever suggestions for a Halloween costume?? I don’t have any ideas. Help a girl out!

Well, I did it!!

I made it 22 years old!!! Happy Birthday to me!

 

If you would like to, you can have a shot (or 3) of tequila in my honor… Just a (genius) suggestion.

 

Having a Birthday in the middle of the week pretty much bites, but I have a Ke$ha concert tomorrow, a boat cruise Friday night, and jet skiing all day Saturday… So it makes up for it!

I probably should listen to Taylor Swift’s “22” since I haven’t yet today…

I also sometimes think I should do crystal meth… then I think mmm better not!

 

Have a good week and enjoy your tequila!!
