Last night, I was finally reunited with my two dear friends Meri and Nina! What a night. We went to starbucks and drove around then went back to Meri's. It was such a good night though, I can't believe it had been so long since we last hung out. It's so great how at home you can just do nothing with your friends but still have a great time. I hate how Thanksgiving break is so short. I know it is just going to fly by even though I have so much to do. Unfortunately, I'll probably have to make a visit to the library today. I had to drop my accounting class because there was just no way that I would be able to pull my grade up enough, so I have to work extra hard in all of my other classes. But oh well, enough thinking about that. Tomorrow is Thanksgiving. I can't believe it. I don't think we're doing anything too exciting. It's hard to really go anywhere with Julia not feeling well, so we will probably just have dinner with the family and then watch a movie at night. I kind of miss big Thanksgivings, but I know it will be better and less stressful for everyone to just have dinner at home. Strangely, I'm not a big fan of Thanksgiving food. I like turkey, but I'm not a big fan of gravy, stuffing, mashed potatoes, etc. Maybe I should just be kicked out of America. So anyways, tomorrow isn't really a big day for me. But on Friday, we're going black Friday shopping, so hopefully it won't be too crazy and we can get some good deals. Hope everyone has a great time these next few days!

So remember the accounting midterm I had last week that I thought I failed? Well, I did. I honestly don't know how this happened. How did I attend every class, pay attention, but not learn anything? It doesn't make sense to me, especially since I am doing well in all of my other classes. Anyways, I need to get at least a C in the class to pass, and I don't even know if I can do that. Today is the last day to drop the class, which I don't want to do because it will look really bad, but at the same time, it will look even worse to not pass it. So I need to make a big decision by the end of the day. I wish I could talk to my mom about it, but I'm worried she will be upset with me. How did I get into this mess?

Well, if you all remember, last week was the the worst week ever. But somehow I survived and made it through and now I am HOME for thanksgiving break! Yes, Thanksgiving break doesn't officially start until next Tuesday, but I just needed to go home! Plus, some of my classes were canceled anyways. Wow, did you know "canceled" only has one "l"? I didn't until my computer corrected my spelling. What a lesson. So anyways, I am pretty sure I failed my accounting midterm on Thursday unless there is an extremely large curve. The grades are supposed to be up tomorrow, but I really don't think I'm going to have the courage to check it. Except I need to decided whether or not to drop the class by Tuesday, so I'll have to check pretty soon. But after the test, I was so sick, I threw up. That's how bad it was. And I had a terrible head ache so I just went to bed. Yesterday, I had tests in psych and finite, but they were not as bad. Today, I drove home with Maddie and Jenna. It wasn't a bad drive at all, which was nice. Since I've been home, I've just skyped a little and done some laundry. AND had home-cooked food, which was amazing. I am so looking forward to a relaxing week, but unfortunately, I have a ton of homework to catch up on. In other news, I'm listening to my iTunes on shuffle right now and it has been a great lineup. Usually I have to skip songs, but they've been so good. Jack Johnson is on now. Anyways, have a good rest of the weekend everybody!

It is so rainy out today. Personally, I am loving it. This is my favorite kind of weather. Hopefully it will put me in a study mood tonight because I have SO much to do. It's ridiculous. I just came from my accounting class and I am more freaked out than ever. My teacher said not to memorize anything, just to learn the theory, but honestly, I do NOT understand accounting theory so it's going to be straight up memorizing a million formulas for me. So that's going to be pretty fun tonight. I wish it wasn't such a fast-paced class because I think if I had more time I could really understand it and maybe like it. Oh well. I have a a full semester accounting class next semester! Except I might actually take it over the summer instead. Well I need to go study so sorry for the most boring post ever.

Well this week is going to be AWFUL. Even though I had so much fun at Madison, it probably was not the best idea to go because I have so much due this week. Thursday night I have my accounting midterm (from 9-11 pm....yuck) which is going to be extremely hard. Then Friday I have a psych exam and a math exam. The math test will be so hard because I feel like I don't really understand this unit. The psych shouldn't be hard, but I need to do really well on it because I don't want to have to take the final! So yeah...I will probably be in the library every night this week. In other news, Kid Cudi's CD came out last week and I just started listening to it this weekend. I'm not really sure how I feel about it yet. His last CD was just so good, this one is a lot more chill. But I'm going to listen a couple times before I make an opinion. Well, back to homework YAYYYY.

Well this title is in reference to the show parks & recreation when leslie goes on a date with a guy from University of Wisconsin. I don't really know how to explain the joke but just watch the show and you will think it is hilarious. So this weekend I drove up to Wisconsin with Katherine, Maddie, and Morgan and visited Mitch for the IU Wisconsin game. What a weekend. We went out Friday night and met a lot of Mitch's friends, then woke up EARLY yesterday for the game. Indiana lost terribly, but it was just fun to hang out! Except I kept getting booed walking around downtown Madison. Even though it was rainy, it was a fun day all in all. Mitch is passed out sleeping on the floor right now so I thought I would just write about the weekend. Anyways, Madison is SUCH a beautiful city, I had never noticed that before. There's so much to do, which is really nice for a college town. And the capitol building is gorgeous. I wish I could post a picture on here of the drive in, but I don't think I took one. Anyways, I'm starving so hopefully Mitch will wake up soon. We have to leave in like 2 hours sadly. I'm dreading going back because I have an ungodly amount of work to do. But it will be so good to be able to get a good night's sleep tonight and everything. Then home next weekend for Thanksgiving break! Well, I'll go now and maybe try to wake Mitch up hope everyone had a good weekend!

It has been CRAZY warm this week here in bloomington! Last week it was normal November weather-40s and 50s, which I was totally okay with because I really like fall weather. But it has been 70s this whole week. I have to say, it's a little stressful because I have no idea what to wear in these conditions. But oh well, I guess I should enjoy it while I can! Right now, I'm just sitting in the library studying for my intro to business test later. I have actually done all the reading/notes for this one, so I'm hoping for an A! But who knows. If anyone's looking for a good song, I would suggest Girls with Accents by Fences. I don't really know any of their other songs, but it's really good! Definitely more of a studying song than a going out one though. In other news, only a week and a half until Thanksgiving break! I cannot wait to go home and see everyone and just relax. Also tomorrow I'm going to Madison! So it's going to be a great weekend. Thank goodness for that because last weekend was so amazing that I needed to do something exciting this weekend too. Well happy thursday everyone, only one more day til the weekend!

Wow, I worked out for the first time in forever and I have to say, what a rush! I felt so good and energized afterwards and it has just lasted for hours. I guess I've been in kind of a funk this week but I have a total runner's high! If you haven't worked out recently, DO IT. I know it sucks especially the whole changing/going to the gym thing, but once you get there, it is the best feeling in the world.

Wow, what a weekend. I was going to write yesterday when I got home but I was SO tired it was crazy. So anyways, on Thursday I left Indiana and went to visit Richmond! It was a long journey involving a bus and 2 plane rides but totally worth it. The moment the pilot announced we were starting to descend, I looked out the window at the familiar and landscape and knew I was home. So sad to say considering I had a home and had to leave. But anyways, Anelisa and Phil picked me up from, the airport and all of us just couldn't believe we were together again. Then we walked around campus, just seeing everyone, and finally Taylor got back from babysitting and so we of course attacked each other right when we saw each other. Then we all went out to dinner with JA. Just such a great night, it was like a family dinner, and even though I hadn't been there all semester we could never run out of things to talk about. It was so weird because I truly felt like I never left. So anyways, Tay and I went out that night. There wasn't too much going on, but it was a lot of fun! And I got to see some people that I missed. On Friday we hung out on campus then went shopping with Tay and Mara. I have just really missed little things like that. Hanging out with them was so perfect and so much fun. Ugh I am getting sad just writing about it. Then Taylor had her social so I hung out with Phil and Anelisa all night which was great and just like old times. On Saturday, Mara and I went to the game for a little, but NO ONE was there so we just hung out with people and didn't stay too long. Saturday night was amazing because all of the b3 girls came over to Taylor's and I have been missing them dearly. So we all just hung out and it was a great night because I got to see so many people that I've been missing. I won't name them all, but it was amazing. Even though the night ended in some tears, it was just so wonderful to be back. So yes, it was really the best weekend ever. But in some ways it was the worst because now I am just so sad. When I was there, everything just felt perfect and I had a place and people who I loved so much. I just wish there wasn't so much going on at home and life wasn't the way that it is. But I guess you just have to deal with things that come your way and try not to look back too much. At least I can still stay in touch with everyone there, and I know I will stay close with a lot of them. So even though it was the hardest thing ever, it was great and I am so glad I got to go and see everyone. If any of my spiders are reading this I love you all xoxox.

Wow, I cannot believe today is the first day of November! I love this month so much, because it reminds me of Thanksgiving and Christmas, both of which are coming up! Although I am not so sure that I'm looking forward to the cold weather. Anyways, I'm sitting in the psych lab finishing up my business project. I was just laughing out loud because my dad sent me a funny email. Those little things can really just brighten up your day! Anyways, people were staring but it was worth it. I laugh a lot when I'm alone, like when I'm reading a funny text while walking or if I just think about something funny that happened, I lose it. Thank goodness I don't usually know any of the people I see when I'm walking around! Today is such a busy day because I have 3 classes and my math webwork due tonight, which I don't understand. So frustrating! Luckily, Katherine is helping me with it later, but knowing us, it will be very hard to concentrate. Last night we watched New York Minute with Maddie staring the amazingly talented Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen! I can't get over how great they are; all of their movies are such hits! Some might think I'm being sarcastic, but I can promise you I'm not, at all. Anyways even though it wasn't a scary movie it was a great way to end Halloween!
