Hello, Fascination

Hello again! Well it’s only a couple weeks away from Thanksgiving Break and oh do I need it to get here faster! It seems that before breaks, every teacher decides to just throw huge assignments at us. What makes it worse is the fact that I have no motivation to do any of them, so my strategy is to go celebrate my friend’s  birthday tonight out at Buffalo Wild Wings (yum) and then sit down, put my headphones on and crank out about five hours of homework until about two in the morning.

To all you that are considering being a science major - biology or chemistry - it is not easy. I have a lab report to write up about the eating habits of different birds that we observed for a week. I am trying to revise my chemistry lab report to make it follow the format better. I have a quiz in calculus. Then I would like to read my chapters for lectures for class too so I know what the heck is going on.

All in all, I am a little stressed and busy this week. You know how they say not to put things off? Believe what they say! It stinks because I’d like to get more than my average of four hours of sleep a night but, of course, I will probably be up real late doing work and then need to cool down afterwards. Estimated bedtime tonight: 4 a.m.

Now school is more than just classes, papers and stress for me. Since I was a part of the commercial for NU, I get to go to the Kissmas Bash in December, which is going to be wicked! Jason Derulo, Breathe Carolina, We The Kings - it doesn’t get much better than that. "It Girl" by Jason Derulo is probably one of my favorite songs right now. I even made a little music video to it awhile back in my dorm hall. Then, hopefully, I can go see my sister’s band open for Owl City in Cleveland on Nov. 17. I haven’t been to a concert in years and now I'll be going to two in a one-month span.

I’m definitely not looking forward to this cold we are expecting here in Niagara Falls. It’s not that I am not use to the cold; I just don’t want to have to wake up early and trudge through the cold and snow at 7:45 in the morning. I hate mornings; if I had a more than like five wishes I would definitely figure out a way to get rid of mornings. I look like a zombie in the a.m. and am in a terrible mood when I first wake up. My goal this winter is to learn how to ski/snowboard/ice skate. I can sort of ice skate but it involves a lot of falling down so I normally don’t do it. If anyone has any tips, I’m all ears. Ha!

Someone tell my roommate that Taylor Swift SUCKS! I love my roommate to death but it’s killing me sometimes when I look at his side of the room and I see her bleh face. 

Until next time everyone.

Autobots - ROLL OUT!
