Chai do.

Hey everyone. I was going to post yesterday, but I was protesting SOPA!

Now, on to less serious matters.

Awkward:

The above photo. It’s my picture for our staff family tree that hangs up in the center of our residence hall.

Not being able to control your crying in public. Yeah, let’s not talk about it.

Only being able to keep track of your friends’ lives because of twitter.

Not being able to respond to a question in class because she was using vocab I’ve never heard.

The fact that I haven’t gone boarding at all this year.

Speed-walking/running to class.

Not being able to pee because you woke up 5 minutes before ballet started @ 8 AM

My coordination skills in ballet. I swear every time my teacher tells us about how we’re doing something wrong, he’s staring at me.

Awesome:

Realizing you have F A N T A S T I C friends who will help you through anything. thank you.

Dancing in my room to this song. So catchy.

Volunteering.

Ballet! I may look like a giraffe trying to learn the basics, but it’s my favorite class.

Getting oranges from FL sent to you. yum.

CHAI! (Thanks to my dad for getting me chai concentrate for Christmas) with vanilla soy milk, so good.

The sun. It does wonders for your mood.

Actually having a clean room. It doesn’t matter that I shoved all my clothes on a chair in my closet, I can’t see that part.

Yes, I took pictures of my chai with christmas lights. It made my night better.

You know how it is

Mad Hatter: Have I gone mad?

Alice: I’m afraid so. You’re entirely bonkers. But I’ll tell you a secret. All the best people are.

Awkward:

>>How I can’t walk in heels, but decided to wear my tallest pair out to dinner… in the rain.

>>Starting to practice sprinting which leads to a slight asthma panic. just the usual.

>>Encounters with residents in awkward situations

>>Sleeping way too much, and still being tired

>>When you don’t realize that you’re staring at someone until they look at you with the what are you looking at face.

>>The lengths I go to to avoid studying for finals…

>>How I should be writing a paper right now.

>>Cracking up in crowded areas at tweets that get sent to my phone

>>Falling asleep every s i n g l e time I try to read in the Union

Awesome:

<<Finding out you got an A on a difficult paper

<<White Peppermint Mochas with my meal points. (:

<<Christmas lights & 25 days of Christmas

<<The people I work with. Don’t know what I’d do without them.

<<Unexpected compliments

<<How supportive my family always is, no matter where we are. <3

Did you hear?


We had snow!


Awkward:

Starbucks’ new sleeve saying. Let’s merry, let’s marry or let’s be merry…

Walking up stairs in a floor length, flowy dress. How do you make it look normal and effortless? I tripped multiple times.

Eating a burrito. I will conquer this task someday.

Canceling plans.

Not knowing anything about cars exactly when I need to.

Getting stressed out and having a breakdown.

Planning programs, I never feel prepared.

Talking in front of class or groups..

Awesome:

My best friends, hands down.

When programs turn out well.

Starbucks & how I now have a free drink. What up gold membership?!

Watching Grey’s with good friends.

Going to visit one of the best friends tomorrow!

Oh yeah, 11/11/11 woooo!

First SNOW of the year! (:

Friends throwing a shout out to my blog. Thanks Devon! Check out her blog, Thoughts in Word Form

Today is a good day.

Awkward:

Always walking into the wrong side of the door at CVS. I swear it should open on the right side, but it never does.

Walking, then swiftly turning around while talking to myself because I forgot something… but having people notice it.

Falling asleep at 8:30 and waking up still sitting with my Freud reading on my lap.

Waking up realizing that my nose ring was ripped out by my fuzzy pillow in the middle of the night. ouch.

Always complaining, and having my friends say: “#FirstWorldProblems” -makes me realize that I should be more thankful for things.

Doing very poorly on two exams..

Not having time to blog for a whole week.

Forgetting my umbrella, and forgetting to zip my backpack all the way = wet papers.

Awesome:

Seeing my family

Halloween. Love love loved that weekend. (Seeing high school friends, good memories & stories, fun costumes, note:above I’m a spiderweb, best friends, treats, and volunteering with kids)

Best friends visiting for Halloween.

Phone calls with my dad.

Local grocery stores. Bloomingfoods saved my program and I <3 it.

Doing well in a class.

Surprise gifts.

Christmas lights in my room. (Also, holiday cheer & all of the new decorations and ads for the holidays)

I’m taking ballet next semester as an elective!

My bulletin board is a turkey & my residents can put up feathers with things they are thankful for. Some they put up include of course: family, support, education, and friends… but then there was also: Nutella, glee, and my favorite, My dashing looks.

October 20, 2011

Thursday, already?

Awkward:

Falling on slippery floors due to the rain. Not once. Not twice. Three times. Plus my raincoat is magenta… hard to not take notice.

Reading aloud. I thought I was good at it, until I stumbled all over my words multiple times.

How I do not wake up to my alarm. I have to set 6 alarms. I tend to wake up two hours after I wanted to …

Pushing papers off until the night before they are do. I don’t know how to relate Marx and Weber AND RELIGION. No sleep?

When people always ask me, “What are you wearing?” … but not as a compliment… so what? sometimes I wear oversize Dad sweaters, leggings, shorts, and rain boots..

Awesome!

The fact that my family is visiting this week and one of the bests is coming the weekend after. (:

Having an alcohol program that includes “wine” (sparkling grape juice), cheese, and dressing fancy.

Having a reason to buy a new dress.

Rearranging & cleaning my room so I can concentrate. *Note the heels above which are placed on my window sill.

My desk that my fabulous father made. It is painted white with a pickle finish so you can still see the wood grain. Love it, because it makes me feel like I don’t live in a dorm… sort of..

The fact that I’m making an HP bulletin board. Love my job.

National Coffee Day!

Awkward

Dropping my phone, shouting, & it turning to the white screen of death.

Rolling my ankle during my jog, while three guys were looking.

Limping everywere.

Flirting with the cafe boy — ha, just take my word for it.

Falling asleep in class, again, and waking up with my mouth open.

Trying to find someone when they didn’t have a phone and neither did I.

Boys trying to order coffee. Grand CarAHmel MaCHHiattooo, actually that was entertaining.

 

Awesome

Actually on time.

Oh look, Thursday is here again.

That means Friday is tomorrow! No school Monday!

 

Awkward:

The above picture my sister happened to capture this summer as we were trying to do an outfit post…

Me, TRYING to eat a burrito. (I look like I’m feeding my shirt.)

Falling asleep in class and knocking your papers all over the ground.

Trying to find a conversation partner through my school’s classifieds website… how do people do online dating?!

When people avoid eye contact with me as they pass me, and I’m waving to them..

Burning myself twice in a day.

How everyone on staff thinks I’m weird, because I drink so much coffee and I am impatiently waiting for my Sbux gold card to get here.

The way I now talk, with words like supa, totes, awk. See below and the Harvard Sailing Team videos.

I went to the Spanish conversation table today and forgot how to introduce myself, or say anything. Can you say rusty?

A-W-E-S-O-M-E

How every time I type awesome, I say it like the 3rd grade cheer.

I get to see my family MONDAY!

Coffee, without a doubt.

My professors, they’re all interesting and supa nice.

Not being on duty all week/end

Can I say coffee again? What about pumpkin spice?

The weather here. & the fall is right around the corner.

Free tshirts.

Working out, finally.

August 5, 2011

I might as well…

…start doing these posts on Friday.

Oh, Awkward..

Going to a going-away-sort-of-ish party thrown for yourself, and only knowing 10% of the people there.

When your living room looks like a toy store set up shop in it.

Walking into a door, because you thought it said push when it was actually pull.

Having people always think I’m 16, when I’m soon-to-be 20.

Making a trip to the library, only to realize you forgot your card.

Awesome!

Spending a day in the city with some friends.

Gyros.

My nose is officially pierced. (:

New friends.

How close I am to moving back on campus!

The JOHN BUTLER TRIO concert is very near!!!

Air conditioning, enough said.

It’s finally here

Awkward

How sad and excited I am for the new movie. I’m kind of really bummed that the journey’s over….

When looking for your phone, you lift up a blanket, only to have your phone fly across the room.

Working for literally two hours to make a Grooveshark widget.

Phone calls where you don’t know what to say.

Having your 3 year old nephew scream in the grocery store, 8 times.

Awesome

HP, tonight at midnight!

Having the house to myself. This means dancing like an idiot in the kitchen without caring. (:

Chipotle, yum.

Days out with your sister & her friend.

It’s Kind of a Funny Story

The new Cosmo being out
