oh chicago... it was wonderful! cold and windy, but wonderful! we got in about 1am on wednesday, woke up thursday for some walking tours, did some shopping and walking- went to some museums, and toured the robi house yesterday on our way home. got in around midnight last night, got home and crashed.
i was out of town on a choir trip to harrison, arkansas yesterday so i was unable to post- the concert went well, the bus ride was horrible. there is NO interstate between harrison and searcy. NONE. it was curvy back roads the WHOLE 2.5 hours... carsick. the whole way. on a loud bus.
anyway, yesterday's (#3) some one i love (which will now be abbreviated as "soil")
and today's (#4)
and now i have to work on my art history term paper... our "outline" is due tomorrow... and i'm not even sure where to begin. i'm trying to read the material, but trying and accomplishing are 2 very different things. ho-hum.
let's just start with first thing in the morning...
woke up an hour late, but still in enough time to make it to my 8am class. got my hair wet, brushed my teeth (but not my hair), put on some mascara (or as i like to call it, mackscare-a), jeans, grey FTL tee, and a knit hat. got to class to discover my professor was late.
went to chapel and unfortunately both people who sit on either side of me were there today, canceling out the option of a nap.
after chapel i went to the student center where i dropped my aluminum water bottle on my flip-flopped toe... not once, not twice, but three times... yes. i'm a klutz.
during my 10am weaving class i ONCE AGAIN ran out of black crochet cotton...(only having used 800 yards so far...) we'll come back to this.
went to the student center to try to chill out for a minute or two before art history and just couldn't get away from one of the most annoying people on the face of the planet...
then came art history... BLAH. got a 64 on the last test i took in there... i currently have a C and i'm VERY ok with that. was reminded in that class that my outline for my term paper is due on monday... i'm going on a choir trip tomorrow. until sunday. will i have time to work on that? negative.
after art history came the highlight of my day- i went to lunch with the boys i usually go to lunch with- john, bobby, and jake... we went to waffle house for our once a month treat to something that isn't the caf or the student center. wonderful lunch.
then i went to work...
and now for the rest of the story...
i had to find more black crotchet cotton to continue my weaving project. a girl i know was going to cabot to go to a different walmart, and called and said they didn't have any. so i called hobby lobby in little rock... they had 3 balls left... so i get in my car and go. on the way there, i spot a michael's and decide to just check and make sure- and praise him... they had it. so long story short... i drove to little rock for a $2.49 ball of string... amazing.
last night's ball game was amazing! with the win last night we moved into the gulf south tournament- which means we play wednesday in south haven! last night's game was also senior night... and... i got recognized. i was the only senior girl and got recognized with some of favorite fellow rowdies: micah sullivan, michael fittz, carson copeland, and johnathon colvin. it was bittersweet... i'm glad i have one more year!
