getting kinda sick ):

The remainder of Friday was filled with Weather and Climate, taking a short nap, a birthday party, and hanging out with some close friends... even a slumber party at the Staish! The next day was going to be a big one, so I set my alarm for 11 a.m. just to be sure!

Saturday, I had an obligation to be dressed and ready and at the coliseum at 2:15. And I was even a few minutes early! Keeping my fingers crossed that I would not be cheering in the rain, I headed out to multiple tailgates and pep rallies before heading to the stadium for the game. Mom, Tripp, Woody, and Charlie had tickets to the game so it was great to spend some time with them too! The game, although extremely wet, was actually really fun... and winning wasn't bad either! Saturday night, I spent some time with "the Busteds" (aka. Me, Casey, Katie Mac, and Tramm) with a few others then went to sleep until Sunday.

Tripp, Woody, Charlie, Me, and Mom pre-game (and pre-rain) tailgating!

Sunday was extremely relaxed and well deserved. I hung out around the apartment (and napped) until it was time for Stingray practice. Practice was sensational! I had a great stunting, jumping, and tumbling night and even got to spend some quality time with a lot of great friends. After the short trip back to Athens, I headed to bed.

Monday was okay. Classes went pretty well and went by quickly. After class, I headed back to the apartment for an hour or so before heading back to campus for my advising appointment. I met with my adviser and we decided what classes would be best for my schedule for next semester (AND she agrees that taking 15+ hours and cheering is too much... but I have to follow Dad's rules). After the meeting, I was off to practice where Jackie and I were both in giggly moods. Conditioning kicked my butt (in a good way) and then I was off to AOPi to watch Gossip Girl (more like entertain myself while everyone else watched gossip girl) and have a heart to heart with Sarah Brinson. After the show, I was off to AXO with Amanda to see Taryn! A short walk later, it was pretty late and I needed to sleep! Back at the apt, I went straight to bed.

Today (Tuesday), I woke up feeling like poo. Soar throat, swollen tonsils, a headache, and chills almost kept me in bed. However, knowing that going to workouts would be the only way to get help from the trainers, I brushed my teeth and headed to the annex. Anish and Katie noted my symptoms and worked on getting an appointment for me at the health center while I did a light version of the day's workout. After the hour in the weight room, I found out there were no openings at the health center for today so I have an appointment for tomorrow and was told not to go to classes yesterday. I made my way back to the apartment and fell asleep as soon as my head hit the pillow at 8:15. I rolled over and woke up to a text message at 1:20. I definitely needed the rest! I hung around the apartment all day studying for my american history test, ate a little bit, and drank lots of fluids. I stopped by the pool for a little bit because it was such a nice day. As for right now, I'm taking a break from my studying to update my blog. I hope to get to sleep pretty good.

Until next time... hopefully tomorrow! Wish me luck on my test and my appointment!

a recap of the week.

My last post was on monday so let's pick it up from there!

Tuesday stated out pretty well but very early! I headed to workouts (which were especially NOT fun because I got in trouble for rolling my eyes at the training coach which DID NOT happen because I'm not in middle school) then back home to take a short nap before heading off to a day full of critiques!

In Color and Composition, we presented projects two and three (which Professor Moon likes to call Project Second and Project Third) and discussed the color and composition of each (imagine that!). We also discussed the balance, movement, and technique used in each piece. I was pleased with my work but could see the room for improvement on future projects. I've never really painted before so It's good that all my stuff is a work in progress (pun intended).

In 3D design, all the students (including myself) set up our finished designs and went around the room critiquing each piece individually. We focused on the basic idea of each project, the precision, cleanliness, shadows, relief, etc. I was very pleased with this project especially when my teacher said that it was narrative and graphic (PERFECT for my dream career - Animation). And here it is...

3D Design Project One:
A foam core grid based on the Little Mermaid.

After class, I headed to ATL to get a haircut at Siggers Salon in Atlanta. Lisa Green, a fellow UGA cheerleader's mom, did an amazing job on my hair and was so fun and talkative the whole time. I definitely would refer anyone to go see her! Lisa was helping a few other hair dressers with the hair for models for an upcoming show in New York. There were tall blonde girls everywhere!

After my haircut, I headed to Stingrays to see Green practice and get some tumbling in before heading over to Katie and King's house for Dinner... which was my favorite meal of all time - Kahlua Chicken! After a great time hanging out with the Harrison's, I was headed back to Athens.

Wednesday started out the same as Tuesday... Early! But practice was fun and we even got to running tumble (I'm sure Tramm and I were the only ones that were happy about that). After practice, I headed to History only to find out that it had been cancelled so I headed back to Rankin and met up with Tramm. We hung out for a little bit then I headed to Art History, then the seminar (where Rachel, Laura, Caitlin, Rhiannon and I colored mermaids), then Weather and Climate. After class, I headed back to the apartment to shower and get ready for an ice cream date with Amanda!

Ice cream was amazing (One dollar at Hodgen's Pharmacy at Five Points)! I enjoyed a cone of strawberry cheesecake chuck and Amanda got half peanut butter chocolate chunk and half cookies and cream. So yum! After ice cream, I hung around the AOPi with Amanda until after dinner (which was a yummy shrimp alfredo). Half a mile down Milledge, my next stop was KD to help Courtney with some art work. I had a great time NOT studying for the accounting test (because 1) I'm not in accounting. 2) everyone else is!) and being silly with Court until it was time to go to sleep.

Thursday was supposed to start early but I just happened to miss my alarm for work outs and got to sleep in until 10 for the first time in seriously... not joking... maybe three weeks. It was great! In classes, we started new projects (one based on butterflies and one based on touch). After class, I headed over to Alyssa's apartment and we hung out for a while, grabbed some chick-fil-a and did some hard core facebook stalking. Around nine, I headed over to AOPi to watch the premier of Grey's Anatomy with some friends, then headed over to the Staish to see some other friends before going back to my apartment with Katie Mac and Casey for a sleepover!

This morning, practice was okay. We ended practice with a twenty five minute run. Seth and I set an easy pace and spent the time chatting about life. Definitely helped the time pass! After practice, Casey and I headed to Waffle House (where she got oatmeal... and by oatmeal, I mean the allstar breakfast... and ate the whole thing). After that, it was off to class. Two classes later, I am currently in the art building updating my blog and listening to some new jams.

What's going on tonight? Appearance at a Nursing home, tanning bed, then joining up with the rest of the busteds (Casey, Katie Mac, and Tramm) for a movie night! Tomorrow? UGA vs. Arizona State! Can't wait to see my mom, Tripp, Woody, and Charlie! Speaking of mom... it's her birthday! So happy birthday to my mom. She's great.

I probably won't be posting until sunday. So until then...

Monday, September 21, 2009


I really need to step up my game with this whole "keeping my blog updated" thing. So here's a start!

Last time we talked, It was almost a week ago. Since then, a lot has gone down.


Classes were normal but semi-stressful because my projects would be due in both classes the next time we would meet. After classes, I don't remember what I did because that was so long ago. Most likely eating, sleeping, tv, etc.


Classes were great, nothing too crazy or exciting. After class, I headed to Atlanta to my sister and brother-in-law's house for a family gathering in honor of my mother's birthday! It was super great to see everyone (even Katy and Dan's dog, Roxxi, who had just gone under the knife to get her ACL repaired... but i think it was removed or something? Katy - feel free to explain). I even got some shopping done! New tubberware from Katy and flatware (and an AWESOME Celine Dion book) from mom were on the ride back with me to Athens that evening.

Jackie and I at the UGA vs. Arkansas football game!


I woke up at nine in the morning, showered, and got ready to head to Arkansas for my first travel game of the year! A bus ride to Atlanta, a flight to Arkansas, an amazing game, a ride to the airport, a flight to Atlanta, and a bus ride to Athens later, we arrived at six a.m. on sunday and I. WAS. EX. HAUST. TED. Seriously. I think exhausted is an understatement. I've never been so tired. But it was totally worth it to defeat the Razorbacks! I guess this section covers part of sunday so...

Remainder of Sunday:

I went directly to sleep once returning to my apartment. Three hours later, my alarm went off and I was up and adam! After a quick shower, I headed to Marietta to help Erica celebrate her eighteenth birthday! Brunch was served at the Levy's house and it was delicious! So much fun seeing everyone! After the crowd was gone, I began studying for my art history test. Up next on the checklist was Brandon's birthday dinner at Outback then Stingrays to watch Orange/Smoke practice and then I had practice with Rust! Tumbling actually went pretty well for me, being so tired and the lack of sleep. After practice, I was headed back to Athens for more studying before heading to bed.

Monday (aka. Today):

I skipped my first class (oops! I really needed sleep and I knew nothing was going on today. Plus! we are allowed five absences. I really needed to take one). I woke up around ten, got ready, and headed out for the day. I'm not trying to sound conceited, but my outfit today totally rocked. Light blue Columbia PFG shirt with khaki cargo shorts and duck boots. I would have taken a picture BUT by the time my longggggg day was over, I was COMPLETELY saturated with rain water. Anyway, Art History test was amazing. I think I did really well. After that, I headed to Hobby Lobby to get some supplies for my 3D design project (and a coloring book!). After my adventure, I was back on campus for Weather & Climate. After that, it was straight to the Lamar Dodd building to do work on my art project! I finished (pictures tomorrow) just in time to get my materials to my car (dryly) and get to practice. Practice went well and conditioning felt good. Jackie and I have become quite the stunters! After practice, it was straight to the apartment for more art work and Rachel Zoe project... I also ate a yummy pizza!

As of right now, I am headed to bed because I'm tired and I have to be at workouts at seven! Yippie! Goodnight.

Until next time...

Wednesday, September 16, 2009


I can not believe it's been almost a week since my last update! I guess that's what happens when life gets stressful and days become too short to get everything done...

Let's venture back to Friday. Friday was a good day. Classes went really well and I thought I did amazingly on my Weather and Climate test. After classes, I got a chance to hang out with Casey at her house then get together with Megan and Tiffany later that night. We even had a slumber party!

Saturday, I woke up semi early (around nine thirty) and got ready for the big day - GAME DAY! I started out the day with a tailgate on Broad Street with Amanda, Megan, and Amanda's extended family. It was great to relax and have a few snacks before starting the hectic schedule! After picking up my raffle tickets (that I left at my apartment), I headed to the coliseum to meet with the team and get the cheering started! Pictures, tailgates, ice cream, dawg walk, warm ups, and a five hour game later - I had helped cheer the Bulldogs to a victory against the South Carolina Gamecocks! And even got some TV time! After that game, I was completely exhausted and headed home to shower before hanging out with some friends (including Katie Mac and Jackie) over at the Station (a group of houses off Milledge).

Amanda, Seth, (a little bit of Jackie) and I on ESPN2!

Sunday, the day started when Jackie and I woke up and headed a few houses down to Alex's house! Whitney had slept over so we had a super fun time quoting youtube videos and such in Alex's bed. After much discussion, we decided to head to Five Guy's Burgers and Fries for lunch! A cheeseburger and fries later, my grease limit had been reached. Dang! I still owe Jackie for covering my meal because I had left my wallet in my car. We left downtown and dropped Alex off at KD, dropped Jackie at her car, and Whitney and I headed to the mall in search of a dress she had seen at the game (and a red belt to go with it). We didn't find the dress but found a different one that Whitney really liked... and even discovered a neon cosmic putt-putt golf course in the mall! We're definitely planning on going back and playing a round sometime soon. Whitney dropped me off at my car and I got to work on laundry, painting, and reading. Pretty soon, it was seven thirty and Zack, Amanda, Megan, and I were off to Stingrays for open practice! Practice went well and we were back in Athens by one. I headed straight to bed!

Monday was kinda boring. Nothing exciting in any of my classes... we didn't even get our tests back in Weather and Climate! After class, I headed back to the apartment to get some work done before practice. Practice was good, nothing too exciting. Oh! I had to sit out because I had cut my finger with a knife. Oops. But it's getting better, don't worry! After practice, Taryn and I couldn't walk again (via rain) so I headed back home for homework and Rachel Zoe project with Zack and his friend Becky. After that, I was in da bed!

Tuesday started super early for work outs. Due to my cut, I couldn't lift weights, so I spent my morning completing 4,000+ strides on the elliptical. My legs were pretty tired but I had a paper to write so I didn't get my usual nap in before heading to class. Color and Composition went well and I still had to work on my paper so I opted out of 3D design for the day. Paper complete and it was time for Katy to be here! As soon as Katy arrived, we went on an adventure to see all the places Katy lived during her four years at UGA. That was so fun and brought back lots of memories for both of us (and Katy gave me some good tips on restaurants, etc). After the tour (scenic, by choice, I might add), Katy and I took a trip to the K-Roger for groceries for dinner! An hour or so later, Katy and I were feasting on a delicious meal of Lemon Tilapia, Broiled Asparagus, and Long Grain Rice. Dinner was topped off with a little bit of frozen yogurt! After watching Flipping Out on Bravo, Katy and I brushed our teeth and went to sleep.

This morning, Wednesday, Katy and I woke up with Coffee, got ready for the day and headed off to get breakfast with one of Katy's long time friends, Kate! Breakfast at Mama's Boy right off of downtown was so great! I enjoyed a bacon, egg, and cheese scrambler with a side of grits and a biscuit. After breakfast, I had to hurry over to the Rankin Student Athlete center to print off my paper before heading to History. Four classes later, classes were over and I was headed back to my APT for a nice long nap and a little bit of laundry. Next up was practice. Then GLEE at Rachel's (which was SO much fun). Then headed to AOPi to hang out with Amanda, Audrey, Alli, Sarah, and Callan (also so much fun)! After that, back the apartment for a shower and to update my blog. Last up for the day, I'm going to sleep (:

Until tomorrow... or next time!

Thursday, September 10, 2009


Let's traveling back in time to Tuesday, shall we?

Work outs were blah. The funny thing is that I am actually trying hard in the weight room (pushing myself to higher weights, using proper technique, having a positive attitude, etc.). If I remember correctly, I power cleaned 110 pounds and squatted (25 x 2 + 45 x 2 + 45...) ...that can't be right! There is no way I squatted 185! But I guess I did.

After napping, showering, getting ready for the day, etc., I did some reading and headed to class... but I picked up Caitlin on the way!

In color and composition, I completed one (of four) of my project two pieces, a project based around mixing our own colors.

It's even semi-Asian!

In 3D design, I continued to work on my foam core (AHHHH!) project. I think Katy will like this especially. I wouldn't say it was my inspiration, but it kind of reminds me of an Eric Carle character!

After class, I headed back to my apartment for just a few minutes before changing clothes and heading to cheer on the UGA Volleyball team!

The Dawgs defeated Prespiterian College in four matches! It was so much fun getting to cheer with Casey, Katie, Allyson, Seth, Allison, Bria, and Amanda. I'm definitely going to miss having all-girl groups on my side at football games (we split into Coed and All-girl teams).

After the game, I hung out with Jackie, Whitney, Elizabeth Pishal, and Courtney for a while before heading to bed.

Wednesday was a pretty long day. Four classes in a row = not fun for someone that is hungry! American History went well. Art History was great. Art Seminar was slightly entertaining (thanks in part to Rachel Harrington). And in Weather & Climate, we got our pop quizzes back! I got a 90%. We have a test in that class tomorrow!

After class, I headed back to the apartment, SCARFED down an entire margherita pizza, and got ready for practice!

Practice was fairly intense (as it should be... we have our first home game on Saturday!!). Jackie and I did really well with our stunting and even had a little bit of fun joking around and dancing to a CD that I burned for practice.

After practice, (after canceling my walk with Taryn via rain) I headed over to Rachel Nielson's house to watch "Glee" (a.k.a. my new favorite show times a trillion). It was so great. I can't get over it.

Once the show was over, I made my way to KD to help with Arts & Crafts night! I had a great time hanging out with Whitney, Jackie, Kelley, and Mackenzie basically just being silly, painting, and eating pokey sticks.

Back at the apartment, I had a few Arts & Crafts projects of my own to complete and once they were done... I was in the bed!

This morning, Thursday, I had work outs again. I hang snatched (I think that is what those are called) 95 pounds and benched 155 pounds. That's almost as much as I weigh! Pretty impressed with myself (and pretty sore!).

After getting back to my bed for a short nap and getting ready for the day, I headed over to Sigma Kappa to pick up Rhiannon and then headed to class.

In Color & Composition, I continued mixing colors and get a lot of work done on number two of four of my pieces for project two. In 3D design, I continued working with the wretched foam core. After class, I had to book it back to the apartment to get ready for the cheer dinner at the Country Club!

The dinner (Salmon, Asparagus, Potatoes, some kind of Beef, and Key Lime Pie) was amazing! After our meal, the DJ started playing some tunes and we all got up and did the Cupid Shuffle, the Electric Slide, and the Cha Cha Slide! So much fun bonding with my team mates outside of practice... and in cute clothes!

After the dinner, I headed back to the APT to get some studying done before heading over to Emily Wirt's to watch "Project Runway." I didn't pay much attention to the show but I had a great time hanging out with Emily, Heather, Will, Scott, and Elizabeth.

Currently, I am back in my room and taking a study break to update my blog (obviously). I finished all my book readings (for Weather & Climate) and I am about to go tackle "Anne Orthwood's Bastard" for American History (well, at least some of it). I might need a snack too!

Until tomorrow... or most likely, Sunday! BIG WEEKEND!

Monday, September 7, 2009

the end of labor day weekend.

And I wondered what was keeping me awake... I haven't updated my blog!

So Sunday started fairly late (to my pleasure) as I rolled out of bed and made my way to the living room. I'm actually fairly confused about what happened on which day because today is Monday but it definitely feels like a Sunday, so please bare with me. Sunday... Oh yeah! I ate a lunch of cheeseburgers and fries with my family then quickly changed into my bathing suit and headed outside for a long day out by the pool!

The hours rolled by and the sun arched across the sky until soon enough, it was time to prepare dinner! If you know me, (don't let the cookies fool you) I'm not much of a chef. So Becca and I were pondering, "what craft could we make?" I suggested tie dying t-shirts and it was definitely a hit! After being joined by one of Ben and Becca's friends, Kern, we headed to Wal-Mart to get the supplies!

Dinner was served prior to the arts & crafts time. I enjoyed grilled salmon, grilled asparagus, and cheese cake for dinner and it was simply amazing. I enjoyed every last bite. But then... It was tie dye time!

Ben, Becca, Kern, and I loaded on the bug spray and headed out to the backyard to start getting psychedelic! After spinning, rubber banding, and dying, the shirts sit for six to eight hours wrapped in plastic wrap so we definitely had some time to kill.

I get a text from Troy and a call from Rachel and as soon as I know it, I'm being picked up by Josh and headed to a get together at Lane and Joel's house! It was great to see some old friends from Columbus and even a few Stingray friends that happened to be in town! Special shout outs to Brantley, Josh, Rachel, Brett, Troy, Bill, Cortney, Amy... I think that's all. Let's just say, if I saw you, it was great to see you!

Back at home, I had a quick snack (chips and dip, I think) and headed to bed!

The next day (today/Monday), I was waking up at Lunch was being served! Grilled chicken with provolone and grilled sweet potatoes were on the menu and in my tummy! Another great meal prepared by Tripp. After eating, the tie dye shirts from the night before were revealed!

front and back views of the masterpieces! so much fun.
(I guess I make up for Ben's lack of posing ability)

After showering and packing, it was on the road to ATL with Ben and Becca. Once at Ben's apartment, I grabbed my keys and was on my way back to Athens! I made it back in just under and hour and ten minutes. I jammed out to my new mix CD the whole time.

Once back in Athens, Zack and I headed to Wal-Mart for some groceries. After hitting up Wally World, Zack and I visited Chickfila for the free chicken sandwich deal they had going on. If you missed it, I'm sorry!

After unloading the car, it was study time! Well, Zack studied but I read Anne Orthwood's Bastard, a required reading for my American History class. Once I had gotten my ration of reading, I was back in the living room and ready for this week's new episode of the Rachel Zoe project. Ashley came over to join Zack and me for the show and during commercial breaks, I did a little stretching and worked on my body positions (I EVEN DID A SCORPION).

As of right now, I should be sleeping. I have to be at the coliseum tomorrow at seven a.m. for morning workouts and let's just say, I'm not looking forward to being up that early.

Until tomorrow!

Saturday, September 5, 2009

labor day weekend... thus far!

Friday morning started when the sun shined through my window and I awoke feeling energized and ready for the day to begin! But due to the fact that my alarm had about an hour an a half before alarming, I went back to sleep.

In American History, I accidentally corrected my professor but he played along (to my relief) and even made fun of me, a little. We are continuing the learn about the Virginia and Massachusetts Companies of the New World.

In Art History, we had a short lecture then a pop quiz that was a writing assignment comparing "David" by Bernini and "Las Meninas" by Velasquez. It was an open notes quiz and with the help of my notes (and Rhiannon's - which was totally allowed!), I think I did really well!

In Weather & Climate, we continued learning about Energy and how it can be absorbed, scattered or reflected throughout the atmosphere. Some of these ideas are slightly confusing but I hope to get a better grasp on them through the readings and future lectures.

After class, I headed back to the apartment and prepared for the Volleyball match that I would be cheering later that evening. I also worked on some laundry and packed a bag for the long weekend!

At six, I left my apartment, picked up Katie Mac, and headed to the Ramsey Center for the Volleyball match. Four games later, the UGA volleyball team was defeated by Duke's Volleyball team but it was a great night and everyone played really hard. When we were dismissed, I grabbed a piece of pizza and was on my way to Marietta!

In Marietta, I got to spend time with Christie and her family (aka. pretty much my family), Lindsey, and a few new friends! We made strawberry dip, laughed, and had an all around good time before I passed out on the floor with a pillow.

This morning, Saturday, we slept in until around eleven thirty to bagels with creme cheese (my favorite breakfast of all time... so Jewish!). After eating, we took turns showering and getting ready for the day. Christie, Lindsey, and their friends were headed out to the Alabama vs. Virginia Tech game at the Dome and I was headed to my brother, Ben's, apartment then off to Columbus with Ben and his girlfriend, Becca.

Once in Columbus, Ben, Becca, and I headed to St. Francis Hospital to visit my step dad, Tripp. He had some complications from a surgery the previous week but everything is fine now and he is back at home!

My mom and I enjoyed Zenzation Zalads (YUM) for dinner then I decided to bake some cookies! Anna, although you were missed, my cookies might give you a run for your money! During the baking process, I discussed names for children with my mom. I, officially, call dibs on the name Amelia Estelle for my daughter.

Cookies made with the recipe from the back of the White Chocolate Chip bag (:

Currently, Ben, Becca, and I are watching "Iron Giant" and relaxing. Tomorrow's plan? Not too sure but I'd love to have some good weather out by the pool!

Until tomorrow... (or next time).

tues. wed. thurs.

So Strappy just reminded me that I haven't posted in a few days! Thanks Strappy (:

So Tuesday, I had workouts at seven in the morning (I know - SO EARLY) but I pushed through for the hour then headed back to my apartment for a short power nap before waking up and preparing for the long day!

After waking up, I started putting the finishing touches on my art projects that were due that day in my Color and Composition class. I showered and got ready for the day and was on my way to class!

In Color and Composition, we posted all four of our pieces on the wall. I, not purpose, put mine at the end of the the wall, on the far right. As we went down the line, I got really nervous about my critique because everyone else's pieces were so detailed, intricate, and formed abstract space. However, when it was finally my turn, everyone had really positive comments about how the simplicity was refreshing and simple. One of my class mates said that my collection was her favorite! It was definitely a weight off my shoulders after my teacher gave great comments about the direction, motion, balance, and space of each of the drawings!

Draft 2 (of 4) of my horizontal line drawing!

After Color and Compositions, I headed to 3D design where I got a ton of work done on my "The Little Mermaid" inspired project. Working with foam core has been pretty challenging but I've enjoyed using the power tools and seeing everyone else's work during the meetings at the end of every class period.

Some of my 3D designs with the traitorous foam core!

Tuesday night, I met up with my friend Reece at a restaurant downtown Athens called Thai Spoon. This was my first experience with Thai food and I was very impressed! I loved the peanut flavor in my pad thai dish. I ate it all! After dinner, Reece and I took a short trip to Agora (thrift store located in downtown Athens) then said our goodbyes and I headed off to my next adventure!

The next adventure? Karaoke night at Shokitini with the members of 10 North (aka. ION) of Russell Hall last year! So Jessie, Sarah, Emily, Kaley, Stacey, Chelsea, Jordan, Ansley, and I enjoyed a night of singing and dancing to 'Nsync, Celine Dion, Britney Spears, and Michael Jackson! So much fun being reunited with new and old friends. Pictures from that should be on facebook soon!

Wednesday, classes went by pretty quickly (including quizzes in History and Weather & Climate). After class, I headed back to my apartment for a short nap. I set my alarm for 5 o'clock. I woke up the natural way, FRANTICLY, at 6:45! I had to be in the coliseum and ready to go at seven! I was so frazzled. But I made it to practice on time and practice actually went really well! Good job, Jacqueline!

Thursday (today), I woke up at 6:20 and headed to the annex for another hour of weight pumping action! After that (miserable) hour, I headed back to the apartment for a power nap (similar fashion to Tuesday) before getting ready for the day.

In Color and Composition, we started project number two. This project will include four pieces that show the same building (in an abstract way) using different color schemes. I worked pretty hard on some different designs and got good feedback from my teacher.

In 3D design, I (and the rest of my class) continued working with the foam core. Nothing too exciting.

After class, I headed back to the apartment, made some pasta, ate the pasta, and changed clothes to go tumble at Force! Tumbling went pretty well (lots of sweat). After tumbling, I was back at the apartment to get ready for Project Runway night with Emily and Catherine!

Project Runway was pretty intense. Catherine, Emily, and I joined a few (more like 15) others at a girl named Amelia's (LOVE that name) house. It was great meeting some new friends.

Currently, I'm back at the apartment and I am watching "Watch What Happens L!ve" with Andy Cohen on Bravo. Dear Andy Cohen, I want to be best friends. I hope you read my blog. Doubtful. But I can hope.

Tomorrow is Friday! Hooray! And until then...
