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.

yay weekend

I’m so glad the weekend is here! I’ve been way stressing but most of the stress is over for now. The History midterm is done, I’ll find out grades in about two weeks…good or bad. This is sadly my first weekend without Logan and that makes me pretty sad. I was a dumbass last night and I was eating frozen yogurt, when it fell off my spoon onto my Mac! I quickly wiped it off as best I could, but today I can tell some of the keys are sticky which is very bad. I’m hoping OCCS or someone can clean them or something…

Even Worse

It’s tomorrow!! The dreaded History Midterm! GASP! wish me luck…anyway…i got to spend most of this week with Logan which was so wonderful. He kept me sane, lol. We’re going to visit VCU the week after Halloween to see what they have avaliable and to see how many credits will transfer. It makes me feel nervous and sick. Logan was so sweet and made me good food and comforted me. He’s so sweet, I don’t know what I’d do without him. We’ll probably be living toether next year, which is kinda scary, but I know we’ll be happy.

Midterm dread

October 16, 2009

My history midterm is Tuesday…it’s 30% of my grade…I am going to die. No, really. I am trying to study, but my brain just turns to mush. I have to write an essay that’s more than 5 paragraphs…and that’s just one part! I also need to start on a speech for Public Speaking and I’m not sure how to approach my subject. Logan is in town so he’s trying to keep me sane with good food, but that can only do so much, lol. Oh, I got an A on my Rocky Horror Picture Show speech! Take that! lol…

This weekend I went back to Floyd and I really got to be with my friends. On Saturday I got to visit my grandfather (Papa) ¬†in the hospital and he told me about his trip to France. He’s out now and doing well. After I visited him, I got to eat at Red Lobster with my family to celebrate my cousin’s 21st birthday. it was sort of melancholy because Papa wasn’t there. Afterwards, we gorged ourselves on cake and ice cream at my uncle Steven’s. On Sunday, I went hiking on Buffalo Mountain with my parents and all my friends. It was awesome! It was so beautiful and it was nice to take a good hike. On Monday, I baked apple pie made with apples from Logan’s house and went to Blacksburg. There, I ate at The Greek Cellar and then we went bowling. It was nice to see my friends one last time before I returned to Norfolk on Tuesday.

Weekend in the Boonies

October 5, 2009

So, I went home this weekend to go to a party at my friend’s house and it was awesome! I drove six hours down and the drive wasn’t too bad and I got to hang out with some friends I haven’t seen in a long time. We played Mexican train dominoes which was pretty fun. The next day we ate at Blue Ridge restaurant which has the best breakfast! Then, I visited my old co-workers and I hung out with my Dad and took a wlk around my old house. it was nice to be in Floyd. I also went to the Arts and Crafts Festival in town and saw a bunch of cool stuff. I got a free bandana, a bag of chestnuts and a really awesome rock. I went back to Kaya’s house and we ate, chilled and hang out all night with good friends. I had a great time. I love Floyd, and I really miss being in the mountains with good people. I’m going back this weekend for fall break and we’re going to hike Buffalo Mountain, which is going to beautiful.

So, I did my Rocky Horror Picture Show speech and it was a bug bust. I did an awesome job, but¬†absolutely no one got it and they all looked at me like I was an alien. Everyone else did a very short speech on how to make food or something and then I come up incostume, with a big poster, props and handouts and I guess they were just shell shocked. I think I’ll at least get a good grade but it definately popped my bubble. At least I get to go to Floyd this weekend and see all of my friends, it should be a good time.
