Memes

In case you haven't noticed lately, there's a new Facebook page called Texas A&M Memes. Some of them are funny, some aren't. But I saw one today that I just couldn't resist :) this is what I want to do for the rest of my life!

Sweet

A dozen pink roses from my valentine ♥

.....although I still want a giant stuffed animal and I saw chocolate covered strawberries EVERYWHERE and I am currently at work dying to have some. Andrew & I have plans to go out for dinner this weekend, but we are having to adjust our schedules because we have to go to Austin for an engagement party. Hope your valentine was sweet to you!

Weekend Update

I'm sure you're dying to know what I did all weekend! Absolutely nothing. Why might that be? I'll tell you! In case you don't know, Andrew and I are on a CoRec intramural basketball team (same as every year) and the season started last week. Our first game was Thursday, and it was brutal. The referees knew several people on the other team and the game was called unfairly. A new rule this year is that guys/girls can block each other (last year it was considered goal tending if you guarded someone of the opposite sex) and they need to change it back! There was a guy about Andrew's size on the team who knocked the ever-lovin' hell out of me. I was in the air trying to shoot and he came at me like a lineman. Immediately I hit the floor (face down or whatever) and I hit so hard that I had trouble breathing and began to have an asthma attack. On top of that, my knees swelled up like grapefruits. The worst parts were that the referees never stopped the game and the guy that hit me never apologized. The last few days my chest has been hurting and my knees are a lovely shade of purple. Things are healing, but it has really set me back.

So that's my story. Exciting, no? Do you want to pummel the guy that did this to me? Join the club. I've been icing my knees and keeping them elevated but I can only do so much. If you would like to see pictures of my knees, look at my Twitter feed on the right hand side of this page.

P.S. be on the lookout for more posts this week!

Living in the Real World...Almost.

I really can't believe that it is already February. I was definitely wrong in my last post about this being a chill semester. I'm thoroughly enjoying not having hardly any homework, but with all this extra time, it's been taken away by work.

So what all has happened since the last first day of my undergrad semester? Well, I got my hours worked out at CAHRL (child and adolescent health research lab) which is on-campus and I have to work 120 hours in the lab by the end of the semester. Then there's work. The office secretary came to me last week or so and asked me if I was willing to help him in the office for the semester, and told me that I would be able to work 15 hours/week rather than the eight that I worked last semester. Of course I said yes because I love my job! And then there's my 482 class and bowling, which aren't very exciting or stressful. So my time spent on campus is about 9-5 every day except for Fridays, which really isn't bad and it's almost like I'm living in the real world!

In other news, my old boss was offered a better job in San Antonio and she will be leaving on the 17th. Everyone is sad to see her go, and it seems that the program is having a difficult time keeping that position filled. I hate to see her go, but I know she will love being with her boyfriend (in the same town) and enjoy her new job.

This past weekend I went home for my mom's birthday, and she loved every minute of it! Sadly, a damper was put on my weekend Friday night when I found out that I have been rejected from two OT schools. It seems that nobody wants me, regardless that I have over 100 hours of observation (which I think is more important than having a 4.0 because if you don't know what you're getting into, you may end up hating it). I'm still waiting to hear back from 2 other schools, of which one is doubtful and the other is still possible (and probably my only hope)!!

Additionally, I bought the P90X workout DVDs, and I'm ready to knock off some pounds! Wish me luck!
