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.

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!!

Please Don’t Stop the Party

So unfortunately my two weeks of nonstop partying for my birthday has ended and school has officially begun. Naturally that means I can start blogging every day now so I can procrastinate from studying and doing homework. I can’t wait to get all caught up on the events that have taken place in the last couple weeks.

 

All I know is that I am taking a break from drinking… Starting after this weekend of course. Okay c’mon I can’t not go out the first weekend when everyone is back! That would just be stupid. I had a bad hangover that lasted two days and it was not fun. It’s time to drink that water and get my ass back into shape!

 

I can’t believe summer is over already, but this year has some good things ahead so I guess I’m excited!

 

I will get all caught up after tomorrow, I promise!

 

Quick question: Since when was physics a class to be in for all the hot guys??? Guess what my new favorite subject is! At least my attendance will be 100% !! Maybe I’ll already be ahead of the game since I watch so much Big Bang Theory… probably not.
