The End…Probably

December 9, 2009

Due to the fact that it is the end of the semister and I will no longer be required to post on the blog this is probably good-bye. I’ve never been big on blogs because I really feel like no one cares what my thoughts are, because my thoughts really aren’t that interesting and I’ll probably just keep them to myself. Thank you for reading my blog and Have a good holiday and life.

here’s one more link to visit before you go:

Dread and Celebration

December 2, 2009

Exams are approaching!! Fear is stricken into the hearts of all! I’m definitely worried about the exams especially in History. Logan’s leaving today and I won’t get to see him until after exams for Christmas Break, but at least I get all of break to be with him. Today is our year and a half anniversary!!! I wasn’t sure whether or not to make it a big deal, but t still seems monumental to me. I love that boy…

Thanksgiving Break

December 1, 2009

Logan drove me down to Floyd for break and I had a great time! Thanksgiving was nice and I got some good information for my paper on how the fall of the Berlin Wall changed how the Navy functioned. Logan was depressed because he had a lonely holiday, but I finally got him laughing. Amanda and I moved mulch all day on Friday and earned $30, but I was real sore afterward. Saturday was a bummer because everything just wasn’t working, but Logan and I saw the Roanoke Star which is the world’s largest man made star.

Logan drove me down to NC this wekend and we hungout and chilled with his friends Britt and Peter. They are a bunch of crazy guys, but they are alot of fun. They made some funny videos and practiced music and we all ate bagels. Logan and I got some furniture for only about $11 bucks! We got a lounge chair, two tables, and four chairs, which is pretty awesome! I had a bad morning though; I went to start my car and my battery is still messed up. I’m just so angry and frustirated…this is going to mean more money. I’m very lucky to have such an understanding family and loving boyfriend.

OOO! Pretty flowers…

Does anyone know what kind of flowers/berries these are? They are really awesome and I’d like to know what they are.

A Bit of Nor’ Easter

November 20, 2009

I went around my neighborhood looking for some devastating Nor’Easter pictures, but I was a little too late, so they aren’t very devastating. A down tree on some powerlines, a fallen branch, a small sinkhole and a poor poor ferret who looks drowned or was killed and got wet, very sad.

I hate situations…

November 18, 2009

so… I drove my car through some high water during the Nor’Easter and it screwed it up pretty bad. My battery won’t charge, my steering is messed up, and my brakes are too. I drove it to classes for a day or two until my battery finially died…and died…and died. Luckily my roommates sved me twice and then Logan came to Norfolk to help me. He’s so wonderful. So, we go to take it to the shop and Logan is driving my car and it dies…in the middle of the road. Two cops stop us and ask us what’s wrong and direct traffic around us when I realize I had forgotten my purse…with my ID inside. I panic and I tell the cop I forgot, we were in a rush, my boyfriend just wanted us to be safe…and he let me off! The cops called a tow truck  and he charged $135 to tow my car about a mile…which really pisses me off!! But it turns out my alternator belt snapped when I was in the water, so my alternator has been running without a belt for a while…no wonder it overheated and my battery kept dying!

Virginia Film Festival

November 9, 2009

This weekend Logan and I went to VCU on friday and visited Richmond. We happened to see our friend Hank who goes there totally by accident, which is pretty cool. I visited my Richmond Burris family which was nice, I don’t get to see them very often. On Saturday we drove to Charlottesville where we did the Virginia Film Festival. We watched a bunch of shorts made by high school kids, which was pretty good. We watched The First Millimeter which was a very informative about desertification of soil all around the world. Next, we watched a documentary made by Sean Kotz, a friend of mine, called Virginia Creepers, which is about horror hosts of Virginia.

Then, Logan and I watched That Evening Sun which was an amazing movie that I totally recomend!

After that, we watched the Adrenaline Film Project where a group of people have to write, cast, film, and edit a movie in only 72 hours! They were pretty good considering…

On Sunday we watched Allan Ball, writer and director of American Beauty, Six Feet Under and TrueBlood, give commentary on an episode of TrueBlood. It was pretty awesome and he was totally down-to-earth.

Halloween in the Mountains

October 30, 2009

I’ll be spending Halloween weekend back home in Floyd and I’m really excited to dress up and see my friends. This has been a long two weeks without Logan and I really miss my friends. Poor Amber has strep throat and Amanda is very susceptible to it so I worry how we are going to handle that but I think it will work out. This has been a pretty relaxing week which I am very glad for considering the last two were midterms and very stressful. I still haven’t gotten my grades back, which worries me a little. I didn’t do very well on my Theatre midterm, which is surprising to me because I thought I would do well, but the questions were bogus anyway. I’ll be visiting my grandfather who is recovering from surgery and I’m worried about him. I don’t know how much time I have left with him now that I’m away at college. But anyway, I hope to post some cool Halloween pictures and have an awesome weekend enjoying life.
