Inexplicable Butterflies

on October 22, 2008 - 4:34pm

So, I'm writing my resume for a Freshman Internship program for research in a natural science department. I can't really concentrate though because I keep getting the most unexplainable butterflies in my stomach. I just feel like smiling! How strange is that? Anyway, I had my Brain & Behavior test today... I hope I did well. I know I got all the extra credit right, so that's good. I'm going to Phipps Conservatory tomorrow for a Biology project with my lab buddies, so that should be fun. I'm patiently waiting for my sister to come out this weekend with a bunch of stuff from home!! Can't wait.

Well, that's all for now... I feel like I'm forgetting something... Oh yeah, I remember now:
GO PHILLIES!! WOOT!!
I hope they don't blow it tonight. =]

I hope everyone is as glad as I am to be half way through the week!

To be or not to be, that is the question

on October 19, 2008 - 7:30pm

MMM, I'm thinking 'to be' right now. Haha! I've had such a relaxing weekend. For whatever reason, I decided to re-memorize Hamlet's "To be or not to be" soliloquy. I memorized it two or three years ago for extra credit in my English class. It's such a powerful quote... "To die, to sleep- to sleep perchance to dream. Aye, there's the rub! For in that sleep of death what dreams may come when we have shuffled off this mortal coil." (From memory, not bad, eh?).

Anyway, yesterday was Pitt Make-A-Difference Day. Over 2,000 students showed up to do volunteer work all over the city. It was an awesome turn out!! And we had a great time. My floor went to the North Side to clean up garbage along Spring Garden Street. It was a little chilly out, but definitely worth it. Everyone was so appreciative of all the hard work. I feel really proud to have been a part of that. Friday I had my biology test. I think I did pretty well on it! This week I have another exam for neuroscience and then the week after is history. Next weekend is Family Weekend. One of my sisters is coming out. Hopefully she'll be able to bring a friend with her. She's bringing care packages galore, which I'm really excited about! I'm going to have a fresh food stock!! Yes!!! My mom is sending her signature casserole along. I can't wait!! Anyway, time to get some homework done.

Have a great week!

Yikes, I just got my biology exam back... I didn't do as well as I had hoped. 79.5%... I guess that's not terrible considering the class average was 70.5% but it still isn't up to my standards in bio. It's a good thing we get to drop our lowest exam grade!

on October 15, 2008 - 6:28pm

Just wanted to stop by and say a quick "WOOT!! GO PHILLIES!! YOU CAN DO IT!!!" Haha. I have a bio test on Friday that I should be studying for. And I also have to read the entire Poem of The Cid by Friday afternoon. Tomorrow is going to be a busyyyy day!

WE'RE GOIN TO THE WORLD SERIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
YAY OMG YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
GOOO PHILLIES!!!!!!!!!!!! =]

So, for anyone who watched the game- I wish I was paying more attention- when the one Dodgers player broke his bat (and Chase made another awesome save), part of the bat went into the crowd and I SWEAR when they zoomed in on the people where it landed, the guy sitting there looked JUST like papa Groban! I kept thinking about. I can't find any videos to see if I can get a better look... maybe I'm nuts :P

OMJ OMJ OMJ those pictures. I'm pretty sure I'm never going to get anything done now. I can hardly breathe!!! SOOO GOOOOOOD!!! Love ya Josh =]

*sigh* if only I weren't a poor college student... :P

Ehh. I'm in a "I don't know what he sees in her" and a "why doesn't he like me" kind of mood. It sucks, but it happens to the best of us and I'll be alright with time. I keep a smile on my face and always look to the bright side. At least this way I can't mess up a really good friendship!

Anyway, enjoy this week!! I'll be studying for exams galore. So far so good on that front. =]

Happy edit!!! PHILLIES WON!!!! ONE GAME AWAY FROM THE WORLD SERIES!!! =) !!!!

Fall Break

on October 11, 2008 - 9:37am

Yesterday we started our fall break here at Pitt. A lot of people have gone home for the weekend, but I could not get a way to go home for only three days. Last night was my high schools homecoming and all of my friends were there. It sounded like a lot of fun, we actually won the game, which is pretty much unheard of. There's really not much else going on this weekend. My sister Megan is getting back from her honeymoon in Florida. Sunday night the whole ten people left on my floor are having a girls night in. We're going to eat ice cream and watch chick flicks in the lounge. If only I could convince my RA to play Awake Live! Ahh, everyone would want to kill me.

So, it's twelve thirty in the afternoon and I just woke up about half an hour ago... I always feel bad when I sleep so much, but it also feels really good. I love feeling refreshed and ready for a new day when I get a good night of sleep, which I haven't been lately. And it's not like I have anything pressing to do today.

I hope everyone's weekend is going well so far!

Aw, I've listened to Anthem like a billion times today. It's so beautiful. Can't wait for the new CD!
