Update! Because I know you all drop everything to read what I have to say! :)

So. It's almost 5:00. And it's getting dark out! This daylight savings thing is crazy. And it doesn't really work getting that extra hour of sleep if you stay up until 2 a.m. anyways! hehe.

Pre-Calc is still hard. But I have the rest of the semester to buckle down & get my grade back up there. I almost dropped it, but I decided to stick it out. I'll have 6 more quizzes and a final in that class, hopefully I can do much better on all of them!

All of my other classes are pretty easy, and I enjoy them for the most part. I don't really care for my speech class... too much preparation and not enough of your grade depends on your actual speech, but I guess sometimes that's a good thing.

My friend Miranda (from Minnesota, yes dad, pretty much all of my friends are from Minnesota! lol) and I decided that we are going to be roommates next year! Now we just have to decide which hall we want to live in, and we're not living in one on the edge of campus like Coate!

Hm... not a whole lot else going on. College is tons of fun, and I'm having a blast. I'm meeting new people every day, and I've made some new friends. I finally got a fish too! I named it Jenna (after my friend Jenna, she insisted!). Well, it's a contest. Each room gets a fish, and whoever can keep theirs alive the longest will win movie tickets! I don't care about the contest, I just really wanted a fish, and mom and dad wouldn't let me have one! lol. This is actually our 2nd fish, since the first one died within 24 hours, we got a new one (who knew you couldn't keep fish on top of a microwave?)! lol.

Last Thursday I went to Ghoulees in the Coulees. It's a "haunted" trail, and I got to scare people! It didn't get really fun until it was dark out. I had a black ski mask on and work all black. It was so much fun, I leaned up against a tree, and people would just look at me and jump! lol. But it was a fun way to get my volunteer hours in.

Well, I need to go check on my laundry. Oh, the joys of living on the 4th floor! lol.
I hope everyone is doing well!

7 weeks down. 7 to go.

Pre-Calc is totally kicking my butt.

But I'm doing well in all my other classes.

So I haven't updated this in awhile. lol... So yes. I don't remember when this was, but I went with a couple of friends to go get ice cream at Pearl's. I got a Chocolate Peanut Butter Cone (YUMMY!). As I was eating, a piece fell off and landed on my shirt. And it ticked me off. I said to Michelle, "This looks like bird crap!" Well. It seriously wasn't a minute later when a bird flew by and crapped on me. So yes, not only did I have chocolate on my favorite shirt, I now had bird crap on it. I was very ticked off... lol.
Not a whole lot new going on lately. A couple of friends from home are coming up to visit this weekend, so that should be a lot of fun, we've been planning it for awhile. I've started going to IV (Intervarsity Christian Fellowship) and I've found that I like it a lot better than CRU, a lot more intimate.
Tonight I went to see Marisol. Let's just say it was an interesting play. I don't know if I liked it or not. Basically it was about this girl named Marisol who loses her guardian angel, because the angels in heaven are fighting God, because they feel that everything in the world is happening because God is senile. So like I said, it was interesting. The actors did very well. Then I came back and watched TV with my friend Miranda, then a couple of girls from my cube came and got us and we played some games.
Well, it's definitely past my bedtime.

Well. Tomorrow will offically be one month since move-in day. I can't believe how fast it's gone! Really, it only seems like it's been a couple of weeks.
I paid my tuition this week too. I am officially a poor college kid. To quote Relient K: "I'm poor, I'm starving, I'm broke, I've got no cash to spend..." Not really, but it feels that way! I am definitely going to be looking for a job soon!
This weekend was Oktoberfest. Well, actually it lasts until next weekend. And you know what that means! BEER! And no, I didn't drink. We went to the parade. I guess I'm used to little Fennimore parades, lasting not much more than a 1/2 hour. The Oktober fest parade was at least 3 hours! It was very impressive!
Then afterwards, we stopped at a local church because they were giving away free rootbeer floats. I ended up really liking the church. I had seen it before (it's right around the corner from a bus stop), but after actually visiting, I thought I would try it out. So I went there this morning, and I really liked it. It's Cornerstone Community Church, and everyone there was so friendly. I went with Bree & Miranda, and a lot of people came up and introduced themselves to us. I think I will be going there more often.
Well, I suppose I better go and try to get some reading done. History and Women's Studies. Ick. lol.
I hope everyone is doing well, and I hope to see you all soon!
