I'm finally updating--shocking, I know. This won't be a full update, however, since I have to write my notecards for my Genetics group presentation at 10 . . . I'm soooo glad 'tis Friday. I'll probably write an actually update later today, so I shall leave you with a list of some happy things for today . . .
( The moments of happiness . . . )
Did I mention I'm working on an icon song-set? I can't remember if I did in a previous entry or not . . . anyways, I'm about halfway through (well, maybe a bit less) and I really like how it's coming along :) I shall post it in my icon journal, daydream_icons, when I've finished
My VCR is now officially evil--Not only has it eaten one of my PBS tapes and the Josh tape that had the two Ally episodes (tux Josh! *sobs*), but now it has eaten my copy of The Princess Bride :( I guess this means I'll have to ask my parents if they can tape the AMAs tomorrow (but I'll still watch it of course . . . and I hope Josh wins!!)
( my not-so-very-exciting weekend )
Hmm . . . I think I shall update . . .
Friday morning at around 1:00, Richie IMed me saying he was hungry and wanted to get something to eat . . . so he, Sarah, Em, and I went to the Four Seasons diner (its open 24/7) and they got breakfast foods--I got back to my dorm at around 2ish! O.Chem was bad because Blackboard *still* wasn't up, so I couldn't print off the lecture notes beforehand . . . we did more practice problems in Genetics--it took Jess and I about an hour to do one of them (it had several parts), but luckily we're going to finish them up on Monday in class, so we didn't have to do them for homework . . . after Gospel Choir, we went to the "Breathe Step Stomp" step show sponsored by BSU (yay for aliteration!)--'twas rather good, although the music started to get to me after awhile because it was *really* loud (even though we were in the balcony) . . . Erin, Dana, and I watched a few episodes of CSI (Dana has the first and second seasons on DVD) and I caught a rather ironic (yet nifty) image in the final frame of the "Alter Boys" episode . . . then Danielle joined us and we watched The Land Before Time (the first one!) in the Atrium--we were shocked as we watched the credits and learned that the movie was a Spielburg/Lucas collaboration and James Horner did the score (with Diana Ross singing the end title)!
Hardly anything to write about Saturday, since we didn't do anything--I literally did nothing but O.Chem. (and procrastination) the entire day
Today we (the SU Gospel Choir) sang at St. Paul's United Church of Christ (Chris' church)--our Chaplin preached, too, so it was as though SU was taking over the service . . . hehe. We our songs went quite well, which was a very happy thing :) Erin and I didn't really want to go to the caf for lunch, so we made macaroni and cheese, and Dana joined us for lunch . . . I alternatively did O.Chem. and procrastinated . . . and that's about it for this weekend . . .
( A Procrastination Acrostic )
I really want to get my paid account (for my many icons and nifty Sarah mood set), but I think I have to pay for my FoJG account this time and I still need to buy Christmas presents (after I figure out what I'm getting everyone) . . . Speaking about Christmas presents, Rehta, Allegra, and Sara (wow, your names all end in "a"!)--could I have your addresses? I'd love to send you cards over the holidays :) So you don't have to worry about random people seeing your address, you can IM me at firstname.lastname@example.org :D
Yes, I am talking about myself in the subject--yay for speaking in third person and paraphrasing Shakespeare in the same sentence *pats self on back* Now I shall write about the weekend thus far:
( a rather random weekend )
(and the melancholy-ness is probably from watching the movie yesterday . . . on a happier note, there's a lunar eclipse on Wed :D Guess how I'm going to spend that evening? I'll actually have a reason for staring at the moon . . . hehe)
[Does my lack of paragraph-ness bother anyone? Because I'll try to split up my entries better if it does.]
Today I had a bit of a fun day (for a weekday, that is) . . . we had a discussion day in US History, and then I vacuumed our dorm--you can tell you have a small dorm when you can vacuum the entire room without running out of cord! All of us went to lunch and then [this is where the fun part starts] Sarah said she wanted to go to the used bookstore on Market Street to see if they had the 6th book in the Left Behind series, so Dana and I went with her, after the three of us got our wallets.
'Twas the first time I'd been in the bookstore, and I really liked it--'tis a small, one-room place, with books everywhere. I gravitated to the European Literature section and was saddened that it was only one shelf (Amer. Lit. was 2) and there was no Tennyson in the poetry section :( I considered buying Jane Eyre but decided against it because I didn't really want it in hardback . . . I wandered around the store scouring all the paperbacks and found Little Women, The Scarlett Letter, and Dante's Inferno (which I've always wanted to read) . . . When I asked the owner if he had any Tennyson, he said he thought he did, and then proceded to look throughout the entire store--after about 10 minutes or so (perhaps longer) he found a Tennyson anthology that he said he'd let me have for $3, but I didn't take it because I was really looking for The Idylls of the King (another one I've always wanted to read) . . . so I just got the other three books--for a grand total of $2.12 :D As we were leaving the store (I felt bad for making Dana and Sarah wait so long for me), I saw the sign for the Selinsgrove Dance Studio, which is apparently right behind the bookstore--when we got back to campus, I tried looking it up, but all I could find on it was the phone number . . . I really want to start dancing again--maybe I could stop by sometime next weekend (since this weekend is fall break *squee!) to see which classes they offer and such . . .
hmm, I read my lab for O. Chem. tomorrow while sitting in a sunbeam and listening to Eden . . . I took a nice nap at 4ish--it took me about half an hour or so to fall asleep and then I slept for an hour . . . then went to a quick dinner with Dana and Erin [do you think my journal entries are too boring?] before going to the weekly Gospel Choir exec meeting--I'm the treasurer, and it's the first time I've ever been an officer for anything (last week was my first meeting as treasurer, so 'twas rather overwhelming) . . . then there was much O.Chem-ness, which I should probably return to now . . .
