A random spew of thoughts, videos, photos, quotes, and whatever the heck else I end up putting up here.
So here I am, at 4 in the morning, writing on Tumblr instead of doing my huge accounting project that is due at 11 am on Tuesday.
Tuesday started out great. I woke up at 7:06 am, went to my 8:00 am class and got back to my room. When I got back to my room is when I started to have some issues. I had a headache so I decided to take a nap before my 11:00 am class. So I took off my contacts and dozed off rather quickly. I woke up about an hour into my nap (10:00 am-ish) and I had a major headache. I decided I needed to keep napping and miss my 11:00 am class and that I would wake up before my 2pm class. Boy was I wrong.
I woke up at around 12, starving, with a major migraine. I could barely get up out of my bed to go to the fridge and grab a yogurt to eat, it was awful. So I ate a yogurt and some mini pizza bagels I had in the freezer, took one of my migraine meds, and went back to sleep.
I then woke up again at 1. Mind you, every time I have woken up was due to the fact I had to pee because my roommate and I love to leave our room at 60 degrees and coldness makes me have to pee, although I love coldness because I MUST sleep under a blanket and I don’t like to wake up all sweaty, so I like it cold.
When I woke up at 1 my headache-turned-migraine was still as strong as ever so I texted a friend in my class to let the teacher know I wasn’t going to be there, and went back to sleep. That medicine must have finally kicked in because I was out like a light until 5pm. I realized I had to go to a mandatory meeting at 7, texted my friend to remind her, and got up to go to dinner. I feel like people on my floor judged me when they saw me walking into the bathroom at 5:00 pm with my PJs on.
So I went to dinner, which wasn’t too bad except for the fact that my felafel was so stale I could barely break it in half. Then, I went back to my room to finish a Castle episode I had started, and at 6:50, went to the mandatory study abroad meeting. After listening to some lady ramble about how I would get mugged and fail my classes if I went abroad, I decided to leave said mandatory meeting a bit early. I then proceeded to meet with other members of Active Minds to get ready to dorm storm. For those of you who don’t know, dorm storming is when you go to the various dormitories around campus and knock on the peoples’ doors. Today we were dorm storming, asking for empty soda cans for an event we have coming up.
So after I was finally done dorm storming, I decided I needed to start my huge accounting project. Before starting the project, I sluggishly went to get coffee from one of the various food venues on campus. The hot chocolate machine was broken so my coffee tasted awful (usually I do half coffee and half hot chocolate). I finally made it back to my room at 9:00pm.
Kenn, my boyfriend, came over to do homework with me in my room because usually when he comes I am very productive. Today, I was not. Instead I was trying to figure out what I wanted to do for our 6 month anniversary coming up so I could shadily give him clues as to what to plan for the special day. He failed at taking my clues about wanting to go to Medieval Times (he wanted to go to hibachi) so I just told him.
He left around 11 at which time I decided to watch CSI, an episode dedicated to 9-11, and a documentary made about 9-11.
By the time I finish it is 2 am and time to start my project. So I finally start my project only to be so darn tired by 3:30 am that I decided it’s time to go to sleep. So I pick up my oatmeal and walk to the bathroom to get ready for bed (tonight was a oatmeal mask night) and let me say I was beyond creeped out. Every few years you hear stories about people finding their way into the dormitories on campus so every time I go into the bathroom late at night I think I am going to run into someone. I might also get creeped out because I am half asleep and pretty much imagining sounds and visions all around me.
So I procrastinated. I stayed up until 3:30 am doing homework that I started at 2:00 am only to have to get ready for bed in the community bathroom at 3:45 am and be so tired that my imagination made me think there was someone else in the bathroom watching me. Procrastination Bites.

I miss the old days. The days when I was so excited for July 26 to come because that meant celebration. I would spend the whole week before my birthday reminding everyone my birthday was coming up which obviously they already knew.
And now…now it is my 19th birthday and it feels not any different than any other day of the year.
