The pants are more awesome than they seem. They’re more weather-appropriate than jeans. A very practical purchase, really. I do not appreciate my legs sticking to chairs. Gross.
Mokona agrees that Leaf Blower Wednesdays are kind of awful.

I’m taking a graphic design for engineers class. Andrea, be very very sad. That’s my living room…

I am sad. Or frustrated, at least. You never practice (that I know of) and still you are so good! Not fair Alyssa - NOT FAIR. I demand more art skills! The universe must rectify this wrong! *sulks*

You should’ve seen Kristen witness me draw the exterior of our apartment building. Trust me, no wrongs need rectifying. I drew the whole thing with a ruler in order to avoid the horror of attempt #1 (isometric view with freaky turny stairs? what made me think that would be doable?)

Also, stare at plants for an entire semester with instructions to draw them so that YOU can understand what’s going on and take calc 3 which is basically math in 3D which you must represent with simple 3D drawings based on MATH. Frankly all of calculus has some drawing. You learn by standing and rotating until you understand the shape, and then you attempt to capture that while wondering if it’d be easier to invent something to do it for you… 

I digress. Point is I have practiced a bit over the years, so if it appears I don’t completely suck that’s why. You’re still a better artist than me. Don’t even think for a second I’m better than you. It just ain’t true.

New item of clothing 2/4. 
You’d better not have thought it was either the necklace or the skirt. I’ve had each for over a year. The new item is not a shirt; it’s a body suit.
Hear me out: don’t you hate when your shirt doesn’t stay tucked in? That’s exactly why I got this. It’s like a white cotton swimsuit with crotch snaps. (I have to ruin everything.)

Mokona wanted a photo of me while I was doing my hair apparently. She got this.

New best friend

My friend Claudia brought me 2 cream puffs because she wanted to share. Such a sweetheart! I was already happy to see my last textbook in my mailbox. Now I’m feeling awesome. 

Andrea, the skirt is new clothing item #1 out of 4. Also wearing the shirt you gave me. ^_^

From my sleeping cat and I. I love your spacey posts, so I’m taking this opportunity to wish you well!

I have a good friend and some frustration I’m still dealing with. Don’t worry. It happens more often than it should, but that’s life. Good things happen too. Like I’m still alive so I can keep trying to be happy despite university making/breaking dreams on a daily basis.

Today my friend told me that she had a 4.0 when she was pre-law and has a lower gpa now that she’s pre-med. Why would she do this? Because she loves science. I respect her more than I already did.

I’m making good friends here. Now I just need more A’s and fewer problems in lab reports caused by stupid stupid stupid stupid stupid mistakes. I can follow a procedure safely in lab, but I’m getting really tired of lab reports being a dairy-ful diet without lactase. 

Also, red drink WHY DID YOU HAVE TO FALL OFF MY DESK? Rude. So rude. I made you and this is how you repay me? You were supposed to be my cool drink on a warm day. :(

(Spot Shot: I love you.)

The spring 2014 quarter has begun. I’m sure I’ll love my classes until midterms. 

I had a bowl of oatmeal about an hour ago. I’m still hungry.

Because finals and I freaking love cheez-its.

I just had to answer a call with my mouth half-full of cheez-its. 

In other news, the ice cream truck is out again according to my ears. As I did when I was a kid, I’m questioning whether or not they really exist. I’ve seen more ice cream boats than trucks in my lifetime, despite running frantically. Maybe that’s just a weird thing where I lived? I mean, our neighbors were afraid to take cookies from us, so it wasn’t like anyone was going to tolerate an ice cream truck. More likely no one wanted to drive for miles in the hilly not-suburbs-but-not-countryside land in which my family still lives to *maybe* sell ice cream to either real rednecks or their neighbors. Or what if this is another college town thing…

I don’t know. I have finals to worry about, so I probably shouldn’t be thinking about ice cream trucks.
