Okay so first of all I have to state on the record that I understand the seriousness of my Black Milk addiction and I am being responsible. So...the above picture features my four black milk pieces that I have in my closet now :) I love them so much, they are such high quality and I feel like a million bucks when I wear them. I have more on the way and I am quite excited.
Now! On to real life.
I have survived week two of this semester. I say I survived because it wasn't easy at all. German has been a freight train of memorization and for the first week and a half I was the unfortunate soul hanging onto the side with one arm. Most of the kids in my class have taken German in high school so I kinda feel way out of my league.
With the combination of being sick, drowning in German and having art, fiction writing, psych and a social life I was feeling very overwhelmed. Went to the doctor, got some awesome prescription meds and the nose cleared up mostly along with the grogginess. I still have a less severe cough and occasionally runny nose but I am much improved.
After practically having a breakdown because of my panic over German I begged my Uncle Robbie to help me, he (being a kind man) invited me over to his house to study. We worked for two hours on my work book and he gave me a few tips that helped a ton and he was able to calm me down a good deal so I didn't feel so panicked. After he took me home and I decompressed I the proceeded to make 140 new flash cards to supplement the 20 I had already made. This helped tremendously! Flash cards will help me rule the world! The next day I was actually correcting my partner instead of apologizing for not remembering my stuff, I felt confident and even answered a question to my teacher in front of the class.
Now I am no longer afraid of German. I just need to make flash cards for everything I need to learn...its a good thing 100 flash cards are only 50 cents at the book store. I bought 400 the other day...
Oh! I forgot to mention my Yoga class! Tehe Jerrica is in that class with me and we have lots of fun chatting before and after about how much our butts and legs and arms hurt. Its so nice though! Only two classes and I can already feel improvement as the positions get easier (now mind you I still can't hold a plank or raised down dog without having to take a break 4 times). The meditation is nice, just wish we meditated longer guess with and hour class there isn't really enough time for it. One thing I really like that we have gotten out of the class so far is the breath. She taught us this really awesome way to breath, not just through our nose but at the back of the throat and out through the sinuses almost like a snore. It makes you all warm and actually helps you keep the poses longer. As a person who hates nose breathing I was amazed that I love this breathing thing, she says that it really helps in winter because it physically warms the air first so you stay warmer.
ANYWAY...onwards from Yoga!
I wrote a decent short story for my fiction class...had to read it out loud on the spot...I got nervous...I blushed...I stumbled over my own words...yeaaaahhh...
I am half way done with my second art project of the semester...its due Monday...better chop chop eh?
Today was a horrible no good very bad day....then it got better. Seriously though... here is my facebook post from today:
As you can see...not so good. Yes. I literally dropped rotisserie chicken on a guy's foot. Then I had no where to sit. Then I sat awkwardly with strangers and felt too awkward to get more food and come back to the table so I left not full.
I calmed down a felt much better after a 2 hour session of sitting alone in an art studio slaving away with a good radio station filling the room...good times. I then went to dinner and found Pedro who helped me by letting me vent and then I got "icecream drunk" as I had a massive serving of chocolate aggie icecream. It was goooooooooooooooooood.
Heidi and I also went to an awesome frat party tonight. It was a pool party so I wore my purple galaxy swim with a mini skirt over it. We danced for like half an hour and then we jumped in the pool and stayed there for the rest of the time. (side note: my galaxy swim looked AWESOME in the black lights as all the stars glowed) In the pool all the frat boys had cannonball and belly flop competitions and there were definitely some crowd favorites including a move called "The Penguin" where the guy slopped large amounts of water onto the side and then slid into the pool. Another crowd favorite was just the general attitude and attire of one guy: he had shaved his chest hair to look like a bikini top and had a "cape" which was a hoodie towel in the shape of a lion.
Needless to say we had a fun time. We had to leave early though, which was fine because I was yawning every two seconds. After we got back to Heidi's room (where we left our stuff) I grabbed my (p)leather jacket and wore it over the suit with the mini skirt, I had it all zipped up and I felt like a bad ass :).
So yeah that was my craziness of my life lately. Tomorrow is dedicated to German and football :) Woot! Go AGGIES!!!!
