Time:12:42 pm
Current Mood:sicksick
My roommate Sara has been really sick since Sunday. She went to Health Services on Wednesday and they told her that she probably had the flu. The weird thing is that she doesn't have any cold/flu symptoms. She has pain in her neck and back and she has a lump behind one of her ears. So today she went to Doctor's Care. I hope she'll be okay.

I'm also getting sick. I just have a cold, which is not as serious, but I still feel pretty miserable. I have a presentation to give on Monday. I'm almost done with it, but now that I'm feeling sick it's going to be a lot harder to get it done. All I want to do is go back to sleep, but I know that I can't. I really need more cold medicine, so if anyone can give me a ride to CVS, I would greatly appreciate it. I decided to stay here this weekend so I could get my work done, but I'm starting to think that it was a mistake because I don't want to get my roommate or anyone else sick.

WHO ARE YOU?!?

A friend recently asked me this question. It scared me that I didn't know how to answer it. So my friend asked me my name and a few things that I like. But there's more to it than that. I am a living and breathing human being with a unique personality and unique opinions. However, instead of expressing these opinions, I'm the kind of person who will go along with what others say even if I don't agree with it. I'm always afraid of saying something that's stupid or offensive and so I end up not saying much at all.

This keeps people from knowing who I really am and what I believe. The greatest moments in history happened because individuals chose to go against what was expected of them and express what they believed to be true. So what do I believe? I believe in a lot of things. As soon as I figure it all out, you'll be the first to know. I hope I can find myself...whoever I am.

God be praised!

Today a miraculous thing happened. I had been stressing for weeks trying to figure out how to pay for my books for this semester. My dad and I thought that we would have to pay for them ourselves. Luckily, we talked to the people in the financial aid office and they gave me an SEOG grant of $500 which covers the balance that I owed and the cost of my books. I'm so relieved! I know Columbia College couldn't have made this happen so it must be a miracle from God.

So now I'm back at school getting ready for a new semester. I was a nervous wreck all day today but now things are finally calming down. I have a super cool roommate now and I know that this semester is going to be good.

I realized today that I haven't updated my livejournal in almost 2 months! I've made a few posts to myspace since then but I've neglected all of my awesome LJ readers. I apologize for that. I'm such a... well, you know what I mean.

Anyway, my life is going fairly well. There has been some drama in my house, but it's not anything worth stressing about it. However, I have to admit that I'm not really looking forward to Christmas this year. I'm not really expecting anything because of my family's recent financial troubles so I guess I'll just look forward to spending time with them and eating good food.


I hope you all have a great Christmas. I'm planning to my shopping after Christmas so I can take advantage of all of the great sales. Yay for after-Christmas sales! So you'll each have a little something when we go to back to school.

Hey everybody.
It's Sunday night and I'm just hanging out here at home. I decided to go back to school tomorrow instead of tonight since my sisters will be out of school and I didn't want my mom to have to deal with them by herself for the whole day. I actually have school though and my butt (which is really big according to my sister Sarah) needs to be in Spanish class at 2:00.

This weekend was definitely crazy. I came home Thursday night and we had pizza for dinner. It was really good. Not like the pizza at Columbia College...lol. Anyway, Sarah and Lydia basically took over my computer for the weekend so they could play games online (Bratz, MyScene, Polly, Barbie etc...) and Sarah complained for most of the weekend because I didn't bring home my printer. I swear that child only loves me for my computer and printer. She kept thanking me over and over for bringing the computer home. I'm going to be so glad when we get a new home computer that will actually work with our sucky internet service. My dad did say that we could get better internet service when we get the new computer, but there's no guarantee on that especially since our finances are so bad right now.

Anyway, I'll be online for a little while longer and hopefully I'll get to talk to Cathy. If you want to talk to me, feel free to leave a comment or send me a message on AIM. My screenname is shewontbeback. I will give a prize to the first person who can name the song that I got my screenname from.

My college life has been fairly busy lately, but apparently not busy enough if I can find time for this...

Current Music:"Sweet Home Alabama" - I think it's by Lynyrd Skynyrd?

Subject:I can't sing!!!

Current Mood:happyamused by my lack of talent
Tonight I hung out with Kaleigh. We ordered chinese food, watched TV, and then played the Karaoke Revolution game. I told her over and over that I couldn't sing, but she twisted my arm and I finally gave in. I sang "Sweet Home Alabama", "I'm with You", and I think one or two others. I did ok for awhile, but then I messed up on certain parts. I still think I'm a bad singer, but I appreciate Kaleigh and Helana being nice. Thanks for the lies!!!...just kidding. It feels good to know that it's ok to mess up and be stupid every once in a while and still have fun. I hope you all have a great weekend!

Time:09:22 pm
Current Mood:accomplished
Today was definitely crazy. I woke up this morning around 7:40 and had to rush my 8:00 class (Business Law). I didn't get much sleep last night. I went to bed around 11:30 but I couldn't get to sleep and I finally got to sleep a little after 12. I usually need 8 hours of sleep so of course I couldn't get up in time. Since I overslept, I didn't get a chance to take a shower and I felt gross for most of the day. (Ew, Kelly!) So anyway I had Business Law, Survey of Popular Music, and of course lovely American Literature.

I decided to go to the cafe to get lunch so I could have time for some last minute studying for my economics test. This is a nice theory since the cafeteria lines are usually pretty long, but today the cafe was crowded too. I finally got back to my room at around 12:45 and quickly ate my sandwich and drank my large sweet tea. I love sweet tea, so it's probably a good thing that I live here in South Carolina.

I went to class and took my test and got out by 2:30. Then I decided to go to my Spanish professor's office to get my rough draft of my paper. I walked all the way across the street to Parker House and I was a little out of breath. Of course my professor asked me all kinds of questions about why I wrote certain things on my paper and I honestly couldn't think straight since I was so tired. She seemed to feel sorry for me though and finally let me leave. I took a shower when I got back to the room. I played online for awhile and then took a nap before dinner.

As I was leaving the cafeteria there were these girls standing by the conveyor belt. They were waiting to see the "seam" of the conveyor belt. One girl said that an alumnae told her that if you see the seam then you'll get asked out on a date. I thought that was kind of funny but I kept my opinion to myself. I walked out of the cafeteria and started talking to two of the girls. Their names are Nicole and Leanne. They are both first year students and of course they are a lot taller and prettier than I am. It made me sad. But they were nice and maybe I'll see them around campus.

So now I'm hanging out with Brienna. Cathy was hanging out with us too, but I think she has homework to do. I should be doing homework too, but I think I might slack off a little since I don't have any classes tomorrow.

Today really kind of sucked.
It's very frustrating to try to do what you're supposed to do and not being able to. I'm going to talk to Dr. Love and get more specific instructions about how to use the listening room. Hopefully it will all work out.

The day did get better though. My Orgy poster came in the mail today!!! OMG! It's so cool. I love it! It has a picture of the band from the Vapor Transmission era. I put it on the wall above my bed.

Thanks Kaleigh!
