yes, i am alive.

I haven't blogged in two weeks and that is a definite problem. Although I probably won't be able to remember everything for the past fourteen days, I shall try.

Wednesday, October 14, 2009... So long ago.
My planner says I had a test that day in Weather and Climate. I made a B+ on that. My planner also says that I had practice that day and Glee afterwards at Rachel's house. It also says to work on my paper... I doubt I did that.

Thursday, October 15, 2009.
My planner has two things written for this day. Workouts and Work on paper. I'm assuming I did both of these things considering Workouts are mandatory and my paper was due the next day.

This day, I turned in my paper. I also had Stingray Choreography at 8 and a photoshoot with Caurie beforehand! Favorite picture of the evening? Here it is!

Caurie and I repping the Rust uniforms for the website!

This day, I remember sleeping in then watching the UGA vs. UT football game with Roger before showering and heading over to the competition at Walton to see Erica! After the comp, Erica, Brandon, and I went to lunch/dinner at Longhorn and it was great. That evening, I hung out with the busteds!

This day, at one thirty, I had to cheer a volleyball game. We were defeated by Florida in three games.

This day, I had practice. And class, I'm sure. I was also supposed to call some lady about my interdisciplinary study... but I didn't.

This day changed my life. This evening, I went to a function put on my SDT (sorority) called GREEK GRIND. In this event (to raise money for SDT's philanthropy), all the sororities make up dance routines and perform. It. Was. Amazing. ZTA won and definitely deserved it. A link? Here you are! A picture from the night? That too:

Practice. Glee. Blah, blah...

Color and Composition self portrait due. I was pretty happy with mine considering it was not so easy working with Starbursts wrappers!

This evening, I was supposed to go to a ADPi/Theta date night with Emily Collins but she had a test to study for so Katie Mac, Casey, Fred, Thoms, Lauren Med, Rachel, Lionel and I went to see the midnight premier of "Paranormal Activity" and that is the reason I am currently awake at 3:44 am. It was so scary!

Friday, October 23, 2009.
This day has one thing written. BUSTED. So I'm assuming that I had a fun night with some fun friends! Proof, you ask? Here you go! I also cheered a volleyball game this night... I think. We won!

A fun night with a fun group!

Saturday, October 24, 2009.
On this day, I woke up in the mid-morning and got ready to go see Whitney and Georgia play a softball game! It was really cold and my friends' team lost but it was still fun to see them play. After the game, I headed to the Tennis Arena to see Nate, Tramm's boyfriend, play. After winning the first set, Nate tore his meniscus on the court. He's getting surgery tomorrow and I wish him the best of luck. That evening, I was invited to a KD date night with my very close friend, Mackenzie Leeigheee. It was SUCH a fun night including dancing, eating, playing with ponies, saving lives, and being silly. I loved every minute of it.

This day, I studied. For like seven hours. For an art history test. It wasn't too bad. Then rust practice. We started working on skills in the routine... but I'm not giving away any secrets!

Monday, October 26, 2009. Today(/Yesterday...?)
I totally rocked my Art History test and I was super pumped. After that I worked on my 3D design project before heading to Weather and Climate. After class, I hung out at KD with Courtney, Elizabeth, and Elizabeth before picking up Katie Mac and getting food to go. After eating at the Staish, practice awaited us. After practice, it was back to the Staish for a few hours (including a short run to Chick-fil-a). Currently, I am not sleeping. And tonight at practice... Jackie and I worked on cupies! Alli and I worked on some too (:

Jackie and I in a cupie.

Well, until tomorrow!

I can't believe I haven't posted in a week! This has to be the longest time period between posts. Better get going... Thanks Mallory for the reminder (:

Wednesday... Hmm. What was wednesday? I'm assuming I went to class (which was probably boring). Wait! I do know that I had a pop quiz in Weather and Climate. After class, I probably went back to my aparment. Then practice. Then GLEE. Then back home? Who remembers, it's been a week!

Thursday was semi-hectic, if I remember correctly. Workouts followed by showering and packing for the weekend, picking up Rhiannon and Cailtin, heading to class, blah, blah, blah. After class, I made my way to Katy and Dan's house for a slumber party! That was super fun. Katy and I made three meat ravioli with a yummy salad. We watched Real Housewives AND Project Runway before bed.

Friday morning was a journey in mind, body, and spirit. I'm pretty sure this was a major moment in me realizing that I am no longer a child. I drove to my brother's, WALKED to the MARTA, bought my own round trip ticket, checked in (by myself) and got my boarding pass for my flight, went through security, and got to my gate with an hour to spare before my flight to Grand Rapids, Michigan. A quick flight later, I was greeted by my dad and step mom in the 48 degree weather. A short car ride to Holland, MI and the family reunion commenced! My dad's side of the family (in whole... almost) was present and definitely made for a good time. Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, Second cousins, husbands, wives, girlfriends, and boyfriends, plus the grandparents (celebrating their 60th anniversary)... Oh my! Dinner was served at the house and conversation never stopped until we departed to the hotel/ranch (...?) to slumber.

Saturday morning, I actually got to sleep in (probably because everyone else in my family is SO athletic and runs twenty eight miles a day and I'm not athletic at all). I showered and got ready for lunch at Aunt Nancy's. The meal? Pasty. Definition? Who. Knows. Let's see if I can find one.Pasty. Not my favorite, but I ate half. After lunch, THRIFTING! Katy and I were joined by pro thrifter, Aunt Janet, and pregrant cousin, Mo. Best find of the day?

awesome leather jacket - 16 dollars.
Brad and Rachel (mostly Brad) would be so proud!

Sunday began with breakfast at a cute little dutch restaurant down the street from the Hotel/Ranch. I enjoyed a bacon, egg, and cheese croissant. After breakfast, we said our goodbyes to all the family and made our way back to the airport in Grand Rapids. Point three five seconds after being on the plane, I landed in Detroit and changed gates for my flight to ATL. Back in Atlanta, I rewound my directions back to Ben's apartment (taking scary marta, which was okay because I chatted with a German boy the whole time). Once at my car, I headed to Stingrays to watch Orange and Smoke (where I got to see Erica, Scott, Strappy, Brandon, Justin, Roger, Caurie, Rachel, Maddie... and everyone else!) before Rust practice. After practice, I made my way back to Athens and drove into the Exchange right as my gas light illuminated.

Yesterday, I had classes. Blah. Then headed back to my apartment to do some painting for Amanada before practice. Practice went really well. Jackie and I worked on cupies inbetween reciting Harry Potter spells. STUPIFY! So that was fun, obviously. After practice, Amanda came over for a slumber party and Becky came over to watch the season finale of Rachel Zoe with Zack and Me (mostly Zack). After that, it was bed time.

Today, I had work outs this morning, where I worked extremely hard. After that, I headed back to the apartment to find Amanda still sleeping... lucky. I took a short nap before showing and getting ready for class. After picking up Rhiannon and Caitlin and making our way to the art building, I'm sitting in color and composition where I should be working on my self portrait based off the colors from candy wrappers! Fun!

The rest of the week might be semi-stressful. Registration for next semester, test tomorrow, paper due friday, birthday party for Jackie tonight (HAPPY BIRTHDAY!), and cheer/classwork/art work on top of that. Well, until tomorrow... or next week!

a crazy super exhausting but still pretty awesome weekend recap.

So my last update was from this past Thursday, which seems like eras ago.

Thursday night, I enjoyed the ZTA and KD Michael Jackson Themed Date Night featuring the cover band "Who's Bad" at New Earth with best friend and stunt partner, Jackie. Due to the fact that she dropped her camera down like 17 flights of stairs, pictures are floating around somewhere in limbo. We hope they will be back in action (and on facebook) soon! I had a great time and was up bright and early the next morning for practice! Yippee!

Friday was spent practicing, showering, classing, then going home and chilling out before heading over to Sigma Kappa to meet my best friend and date, Caitlin, before heading out for the evening in honor of the 45th Annual Pearl Gala Sigma Kappa Semi-Formal. Caitlin (along with some of her sorority sisters and dates) enjoyed a catered Barberitos meal then headed to the Classic Center to dance the night away (/check off the alum and hand out cups). The night was just right and I was so happy to be invited!

Caitlin and I striking a pose at dinner. So chic. ...Serpent.

Side Bangs? Even better.

Saturday morning started around two in the morning when I got a call from my step sister, Sarah, asking for directions to my apartment. I don't exactly remember giving her the directions but when I awoke to my alarm the next morning at eight forty five, she (and two friends) were asleep on the floor of the living room. I got ready as Dad, Susan, and Katie joined the party at the apartment and was off to the coliseum! Ice cream, truck rides, tail gates, food, dog walk, and the game later... UGA was defeated by LSU but it was an amazing fourth quarter. Back at the apartment, I hung out with the family for a little bit before heading over to the Staish to see the Busteds and spend the evening there.

(where's Sarah? Walking from her car parked ten miles away at "churches")
FYI - I do not have an awkwardly shaped upper body, I think Susan is pulling on my top.

Sunday was spent sleeping (for the most part) after hitting up WOW with some friends to watch the Detroit Lions game (mostly because Kelly wanted to watch Matthew). After the two hour nap, I got up and got ready for TRAMP STAMP dinner at Chili's! STAMP (Sarah, Taryn, Amanda, Mary, and Paul) is the awesome group of best friends ever made (the tramp is Jaclyn, and she's fine with that). I really enjoyed catching up with everyone and the food was great too! After dinner, I headed back to get ready for Stingray practice and then I was off to Kennesaw with Emily Van V. Practice went well, for the most part (I was tired), and we even got out a little early. I rode back with Amanda Van V and we made great time!

Monday was pretty boring. Classes were the usual. After class, I headed to the apartment to get ready for the videos we would be making at practice that evening. I'll keep that one a surprise! After practice, I had my usual walk with Taryn then back to the apartment for some MAJOR painting. With Rachel Zoe in the background, I painted my life away until about twelve thirty with the company of Zack, Amanda, Becky, Matthew V. Rost, and his friend Amanda.

Tuesday (Today), started with an extreme work out at the Annex. I did the whole work out (that's right, I finished - and tried hard!) with a little bit of time to spare. After that, it was back to the APT to finish my paintings before they were due at eleven. I finished in time to take a quick nap before getting ready and heading to class (of course, I picked up Rhiannon and Caitlin). Classes were pretty good and lots of people named one of my paintings as one of their favorites! 3D Design was fairly frustrating but I got lots of work done on my cardboard piece based off a clay piece. After class, I headed to AOPi to help some friends out with some arts and crafts and ate dinner with the girls (yummy parmesan chicken). A quick change of clothes and I was off to Force to do a little tumbling with Amanda Van V and Kaley Rae Speros. After some good toe fulls, I dropped the girls back at their cars before a trip to wal-mart to get toilet paper and detergent. Currently, I am back at the apartment and ready to get some shut eye!

Until tomorrow... or maybe the next day (:

getting kinda better (:

So after a SUPER lazy tuesday, I was up and ready on Wednesday morning for my test in American History. After the test, I wasn't super confident with how I did but I wasn't freaking out either... maybe a B. After the test, it was art history, then to the Doctor at the athlete training center to get a prescription for my throat. After that, I was excused from practice that evening and made my way over to AOPi to hang out with Courtney, Lindsay, Natalie, Brittany, and Amanda. After my visit at AOPi, I headed over to Rachel's to watch Glee with the usual group. After Glee (which was GREAT), I picked up Emily Collins from Theta for a Hibernation Station Slumber party featuring a little bit of HP with a side of chips and salsa... but that's what we always do!

Today, I had to wake up early to check in at workouts (and I dropped Emily off) then headed back to the apartment to go back to sleep for a few hours (so great). After that, I woke up and got ready for class, picked up Rhiannon and Caitlin and headed to the Lamar Dodd. After classes (semi boring and not very productive), I headed back to the apartment once again. A bowl of ramen noodles later, I am updated my blog and waiting around for a phone call from Jackie to tell me to head over to ZTA for the Michael Jackson themed date night with KD! I'm super stoked! Expect pictures!

Sorry this is so rushed, but until next time...
