Long-Awaited Entry

It's been eons, I know. The second week of class was this week and I am pleased to report that I still haven't fainted.

I started working at the calling center this week. I'm calling alumni and asking them to pledge money to the university. It's mostly a good job except when I talk to answering machines for two and a half hours like I did on Wednesday this week. But I get to choose my hours, so I can't really complain too much.

In Costume Tech, we're finally done organizing stuff and we're going to begin sewing soon. We're making PJ bottoms! I'm so stoked! Class on Friday went as follows:

Professor Gilmer: Grab a piece of paper and a pencil. Feel this fabric. It's 100% cotton. You need to get three yards of 100% cotton fabric and a yard of elastic. Have a great weekend.

Legit, the class was two minutes long. Best. Class. Ever.

My class schedule is pretty fantastic. I have only one class Tuesday and Thursday, so I have time to nap and catch up/get ahead on homework. It also allows me to read The Lovely Bones. Nicole's mom gave it to me when she heard I wanted to read it. It's so good. I've been reading all weekend.

Mostly my two weeks on campus has been great. I'm glad to be back. I finally got a group of friends I hang with and I've stopped feeling like such a third wheel/outsider. We're all planning on getting a suite together next year which would be fantastic!

Back at SU

I'm here (finally). I'm surrounded by people. So why am I not happy? Why am I feeling so strange?

I just feel so awkward and lonely. There are so many things going through my head: making friends, rooming situations for next year, not fainting, etc. It's all very stressful.

I'm finally here at SU! The three months has gone by so slowly! I must admit, it is a bit strange being back on campus. I think it's mostly because there is only one other person in my dorm at the moment...on the other side...away from me. I'm all alone in my hall and it's freaking creepy! It won't last long, though. Tomorrow some other students are coming as well.

I feel bad for the basketball team. They've been here for like, two weeks already. I wonder what the hell they're eating because the cafeteria is closed. I could not eat that much canned food.

I'm ready to be independent again. A big girl, a grown up! Everything feels "right." I'm back where I belong.

Early Birthday To Me!

I'm off to SU tomorrow! I absolutely cannot wait! Everything is packed in the van (very tightly, I might add) and I'm rip-roaring ready to go! Just knowing I'm going to be able to go back to my dream school is such a big relief even with this stupid strep throat!

I'm not sure when my parents and I will be making the journey up, but hopefully not at the crack of dawn. I know I won't get to bed until late tonight (especially with all the coughing I'm doing)!

My birthday is on the 11th, and since I'll be at school then, we celebrated my birthday today. We went to Olive Garden for dinner and had nommy, nommy food. When we got home, we had tiramissou and I opened my presents: Ellen DeGeneres DVD & Into the Woods, and some soundtracks I wanted. : ) Oh, and the first GLEE soundtrack! Now, I have fun things to watch and listen to!

Such a great day.

Two days ago, I woke up with a really bad cough, and when I got up yesterday morning, I felt pretty bad. Mom took me to the urgent care place that's just up the road from our house. It was a good thing, too. After cancelling my plans with Sarah to go to the Semi-Annual Sale at Vic. Secret and rescheduled for today, I went home and took a nap. When I got up, I had a major fever.

Normally, I would have gone back to bed, but Allison was coming down from N.O., and I haven't seen her since the summer, so I toughed it out until about 7pm yesterday. I spent last night sweating my fever out and trying not to cough up my intestines.

This morning, my fever was gone, but I was still feeling pretty awful. So, I had to tell Sarah that I wouldn't be able to go...again. I also had to get someone to cover my shift tonight.

Later this afternoon, I got a call from the urgent care facility. They had the results of the culture they took yesterday. Dun dun dun duuuun! I have strep throat.

Fantabulous. I hope I didn't get Allison sick.

Some good did come out of the day. I was able to pack my clothes for school, so now everything's all ready for Saturday (with the exception of some minor shifting of things in boxes).

Tomorrow, my parents and I are celebrating my birthday early (I'll be at SU on the 11th). I'm excited for that. I hope that I start to feel better tomorrow. I'm on an antibiotic and the doctor gave me these pills for my throat. They completely take the pain away!

Maybe by the time LeaderShape starts, I'll just have minor sinus stuff to deal with.

So, Christmas was good. To my disbelief there was no fighting. I almost shit I was so shocked.

I spent New Years alone. I went to bed early and woke up at 4:00am and brought the new year in then.

I saw It's Complicated with my parents. Freaking hilarious movie, I must say.

I worked today for the first time in two weeks. It was kind of strange going back...whatever.

Well, it less than a week I return to SU. I'm so excited. I have to finish going through all my stuff to see what's necessary and what isn't. It's really hard for me to tell since I wasn't there very long... I also have to buy a 200 dollar Spanish book. I'm not thrilled about that at all. Oh, and the fact that the two classes that I was registered in last semester have new books. WTF is up with that? It's the same damn class!

But I guess that's the way it goes.
