In the past two weeks i have been very lucky and i don't really think it is coincidental because they both happened around the same time and they both were kind of same in the sense that they were both in favor for me.
The other week i missed my physics discussion because it was a really hard week and it just totally skipped my mind what day it was and such, anyways, at discussion we have to take these 10 minute quizzes and they are basically given just so more people will attened these discussions because they are not mandatory. So we take these quizzes and they are a measly 5% of our grade but either way I wouldn't not take it unless it was an emergency or in this case i just forgot. So i was really mad at myself all week because i totally forgot and i would get a zero on the quiz and there is no way to make it up. To make a long story short when i went to discussion this week on the heading of the quiz it stated "quiz 2" which would imply there was no quiz last week (the week i missed) I asked someone next to me if there was a quiz last week and they said no! I was really surprised and happy because it came to be that i didn't miss a quiz after all and i was really happy!
I kind of slept in from my 8.30 class, not all the way but it was 8,30 when i woke up and by the time i got dressed and got over there i would have missed just about all of the class, and i was reallllllly tired because it was my hell week and i had like 4 midterms in 3 days anyways i was up for almost 72 hours with only 6 hours of sleep, anyways i guess i didn't set my alarm correctly and fortunately i did get up early but i was late and i had to go to class because we always have homework due that day. Well i considered it and then i thought whatever, i can turn it in late just as long as its not too late, a couple hours is okay i just need to email the teacher. So i emailed at 9.30 when the class was over and they said yeah just get it to me as soon as you can, but i had 2 other classes and by the time i was done it was 1:30 and i thought that was too late so i didn't even bother turning it in because i felt bad turning it in so late. (homework is 10% of my grade which again isn't THAT much ) So i just skipped it and thought it wouldn't be that bad granted we are given homework every week. So i keep checking the website so i could start on the homework due this week early to make sure i get it done and the website was never updated and its close to the due date. So i was about to email my prof to ask her to post the homework assignment when i was looking at the homework page and on top it said homework due nov. 2nd which is THIS WEEK coming up so i DIDN'T forget any homework and thus i DIDN'T get a zero on my homework!! i was seriously soo happy!!
This is two instances when the outcome has been great for me. Wow, someone really does love me.
I am in the Cobb cafe eating lunch on my lunch break and updating. I am near this guy at another table and it looks like this weird insect thing is crawling on his back and its relaly grossing me out and am starting to feel tickely all over, its really distburbing me but i can't go up to him. EWW at this moment i am scratching my head and leg, and FEET, im paranoid!! oh well, i don't see it anymore and its not on the floor.
So yeah, its been almost two full weeks of classes now and its getting harder and you really have to keep up there is no time for relaxing. I feel pretty good about the class though, we had out first midterm already in the 2nd week so its definitely faster.
EWW i see the bug again!! its so weird that it only stays on his back and not move to his arm or anywhere that he could see it. It must like him.
anyways, its 4th of july weekend and i don't think i will be able to come home. I have a lot of work and next week we have another midterm and its a lot. i don't know. But i hope thats its good, hopefully i will see firewors somewhere in chicago, even if i have to go alone! (but would prefer if mike came with me.) Also this month and next month chicago is doing this dance thing at grant park and thursday thru saturday nights they have live music and TONS of people come and its FREE and everyone is in huge grant park and they are all dancing, tons of different kinds of dances, but this Saturday night it is Salsa! I really want to go and i will go if i have to go alone again, haha.
Not much else going on, just chilling and reading, its been pretty good so far and pretty nice weather also. Its suppose to get a little cooler in the next few days which is good cause its been really hot lately. but i can't lie i do like the hot weather.
Well the guy left and the bug was still on him and even when he walked it stayed on and never dropped and also never went to the front of his shirt. funny.
thurdays always seem like fridays to me, i wish it was friday and i didn't have to go to class tomorrow. oh well. Its because our homework is due until next week so i really don't have that much homework for tomorrow except read if i need to do that but other wise i don't really have work to do and thus its like friday!
Alright well i guess im going to go, i will talk to you all later. have a great weekend,
PS i will try to get some pics of the apt. this weekend! yay!
Hey, Well i am officially in my new apartment now, its pretty cool. It's really big and fun so far. I started classes yesterday and its definitely at a faster pace but i kind of like it because there is only one subject that i have to worry about. So far my days have been packed, i don't get done with classes and working out until close to 5 everyday so its like 9-5, but really not that much class. i have class from 9:30am -12:00pm with a half hour break and then i have an hour and a half break for lunch or reading. Then at 1:30 i go back and we either have discussion (which is like class) until 2:30 or we have lab from 1:30 to about 4:30 after that i go and work out and then back home to eat dinner, chill out, and homework. Not too bad so far, I just hope i can keep up and not fall behind. The good thing is that i have every wednesday off and the weekends of course so i have time to catch up or just chill and enjoy. I am volunteering at the hospital as well and i am starting that tomorrow.
Tomorrow also starts my salsa lessons back up which i am excited for because now i am in the intermediate classes. The good thing is that the classes will be going on all summer so i will finish both intermediate I and II by the end of the summer which means i can start "Advanced" Salsa at the beginning of the school year which is going to be really awesome! I can't wait!
I am mainly going to leave the weekends open for fun things to do and leave the weekdays closed for classes and homework. I think it should be a good balance. It's been fun so far because miguel works pretty much 9-5 as well so we see each other after work/class and its fun. I'm glad i am here for the summer.
Tomorrow i am suppose to get my bike which i am excited for because it's seriously a walk to get back to my apartment and if my bag is really heavy i walk slower...blah blah, all these things, but if i had my bike i wouldn't have to worry about buses or when they come or if i had time to walk back quickly; i would just get on my bike and speed back and pick of my things and speed back to campus! yay! my dad is suppose to come tomorrow and drop it off because he is coming to chicago anyways. YES!
Alright back to work and work out. talk to you all later. yac.
Yeah its been a long time but today i felt that i should update. It's almost time for me to go back to school which is cool but i wish i was here a little longer to hang out with friends. Anyways i had a week off and i came home, its been a really good week and im glad that i got out and hung out with people. I really do have the most awesome friends. Ramsey and i hung out a couple nights, we went for walks, saw her awesome zine library at Rocketstar and just chilled and caught up. Mike was awesome and came to visit me, i was really happy. We ate Qdoba! its soo good, i really want to go there again before i go back ( i was going write "before i go home" which i edited but i thought it was weird that i first wrote home, i guess it is kind of home and now in the new apartment it will definitely feel like a home.ANYWAYS) So we went to see Batman Begins, which was a totally awesome super sweet movie. I think everyone should go at least twice! haha, not really, but it was pretty good. It was a lot of fun, we played cards and watch tv and got coffee and it was fun. I like how he will still humor me and play stupid games that he is probably thinking oh my this girl is weird but he still does it and ( i know he likes to play the games as well ;-) what comes to mind is the game "I spy" haha, childish i know, but when your waiting in line its a good game to help pass the time. yay! I hung out with everyone after merry got back which was a really great night. The beach is the best in the summer and especially with all friends!
Last night i went to Fran's and met all of her Western friends which was a really good time. I had a lot of fun and wish i could hang out with them more but unfortunately i am going back to take a class. but on the good side, i will me with friends there, my boyfriend (hehe), continue taking salsa classes, maybe play tennis, get in shape and workout a lot, and just have fun and enjoy chicago in the summer. I think mike and i will go to navy pier or maybe even six flags! that would be fun. Alright well i guess i should go, i am going with my mom to a bridal shower thing, have a great day everyone! miss you.
hey everyone Well its finals week coming up and everything is stressful and everyone is stressed. I think im doing okay so far, i just need to stay on top of things and i won't be too stressed. I have an exam monday wednesday and friday. eek. but that will be good though because i will have ample time to prepare.
I have the rest of today, all of tomorrow, and saturday and sunday to study for bio, i think that will be enough time. that is only IF i continue studying all the way up to the date.
i really want to go to the Museum of Science and Industry,( this weekend, maybe). They have this new exhibit on the body and i really want to go see it. This is what they say about it:
"BODY WORLDS features more than 200 authentic human specimens, including entire bodies as well as individual organs and transparent body slices. Using the revolutionary process of plastination invented by Dr. Gunther von Hagens, the body specimens are preserved with special plastics that enable us to view the many layers and systems under our skin. BODY WORLDS offers a once-in-a-lifetime chance to see and understand our own physiology and health and to gain new appreciation and respect for what it means to be human."
sounds cool to me.
the library here is really crazy, i haven't turned in books since they were due in january, which really isn't that long, i think. Anyways i kept getting these emails saying, you have over due books, blah blah, and then it would say i have a $20 late fee, and then 50 and then a $100 and then i was on restriction saying i couldn't register for classes for next quarter unless i return them, but i got around them because i don't need to register because all of my classes are part of a sequence and they automatically just run over so it says that i am taking the next class of the sequence without registering. haha so i got them! BUT THEN, i received an email a couple days ago that said if i don't return them, or pay the late fee, then i will not be able to take classes next quarter, and i think thats just a little ridiculous. haha. oh well it said i had to turn them in the 10th of march and so today i turned them in. Some may ask, "Why Erin did you wait so long, why didn't you just turn them in when they asked the first time?" The answer my friends is because i was lazy. Thats the only conclusion i could think of. haha.
Alright so i guess i should get going, i need continue reading and study, yuk. but hopefully mike will get out of class so we can go get some lunch. yay! alright talk to you later. love you.
I saw this on my friends away message, i thought it was so cute and sweet that i thought i would post it. I don't know, maybe its a song, but i like it.
"I wrote a song for you today while I was sitting in my room. I jumped up on my bed today and played it on the broom. I didn't think it would be a song that you would hear, but when I played it in my head I made you reappear. I wrote a video for it and I acted out each part, and then I took your picture out and taped it to heart. I taped it to my heart, angel, I taped it to my heart. And if you pull away from me, you'll tear my life apart."
Allllright, so i am finally updating in which seems like a forever, but I'm doing it. So much goes on but i never think to write and if i do i don't feel like writing only about one instant i like to write about how im feeling over all. The last few weeks i have been feeling up and down so i never wrote but i guess i will write now, just get it out so i can continue writing more frequently.
So a couple days ago i was feeling really good. I think it was Thursday. It seemed like everything was perfect, my relationship with my boyfriend, school, classes, my future, and just what was going through my head, everything seemed right, and i was happy. Right now, everything is "meh" i mean, maybe its because i have a ton of work and im kind of worried about my classes since finals are coming up, maybe its because i have been kind of emotional lately and making myself and my boyfriend frustrated, maybe its just because im tired and need more sleep, or i don't know. I think its a combination of all three, but either way im pretty happy now.
Tonight should be fun though, its sahils birthday and we are having a big party for him here in the dorms which is cool because that seems to never happen anymore, and it seems like a lot of people are going to be there. I remember last year and his party was so awesome we seriously talked about it the whole rest of the year, i don't know if this year it will be that good, but i mean it was a really good party last year and we will definitely try and make it fun. Leahs up for it also!!
Classes are okay, i feel like i am kind of slacking in them. i feel like i could do better in them , but its the end of the quarter and i can't really do better, i just need to focus these last weeks and really try to get everything in and study a ton so i will get decent grades. i don't know, i wish i didn't have to worry about them as much, damn med school. I wish this was an easier school as well. oh well, at least i know im learning.
Last night was my MAJN concert which is the a capella group that i am in. It was pretty good, i think we did pretty good there might have been one or two songs that we messed up on but overall it was pretty good. My parents came which was nice and my little brother and Mike, oh course. It was really nice cause i had to pick up a vegetable tray which he drove me to Jewel and then we came back a late since there was soo much traffic and the stupid jewel people forgot to do. (so much for calling ahead) and then he had to run home (through tons of traffic again) and take a shower and get ready and come back to see my concert at 6. I though it would be at least 5-10 minutes late because it seemed pretty impossibly that it would take him any less of time but somehow he did it, and showed up right at 6! it was really nice. Then we went to dinner with my parents at a really nice restaurant called "Shaw's Crab House" and had some great dinner and dessert, and then decided to meet up with mike's friend josh and his girlfriend at a movie. We saw "Be Cool" which was a movie that i really really wanted to see and i was really happy that it was the one that we could go to. It was a little disappointing it reminded me of a Disney Movie, but whatever, there were still some really funny parts. haha. i had a lot of fun, even if i got kinda bad afterwards, im sorry.
i don't know, i guess i don't really know what else to say, i will wait until i have more, maybe tomorrow to update about tonight and things. I need to finish some more work and then get ready so i guess i will talk to you later. see ya! yac.
