definitely busyness!! :-)

So I have determined that the not writing as much as I want is from busyness!! Lol, that's for sure. This week has gone quickly, which is very fine by me. Popping down to surprise Travis at 10 o'clock at night on Tuesday definitely helped the time go faster. He thanked me for coming, said I was wonderful, and told me how surprised he was. I told him I was just as surprised! Considering I did even decide to leave until 9 that night, and just hopped in the car to go! Lol. Well anyway, tomorrow is friday and that is wonderful. I have so much work to do, and hopefully I will actually do it this weekend. It is just so hard to think about work when my Trav is up here. All I want to do is relax with him. Well, the fact that I don't have class and can actually sleep in doesn't help either! If I can get some research done for my 344 paper, and get my room a bit more organized, then I will be satisfied. I always have this feeling that if I organized my space, then it will help to organize my life and actions more. We'll see about that one. Well, time to go and have lunch with my wonderful little Lauren! I'm so very excited... she is great. Ciao!!


snaps and smiles!!!

I haven't written in a week, and i'm not sure if that's because things have been too crazy, or if its been too slow.

I had my 56 test last week... which was stressful, and okay all at the same time. I got it back now, and got a B which is the best feeling in the world considering how I did last time. Smiles and snaps for that one! And the horror that was my other IR test, ended up not so bad. The Professor informed us that if we improved a good deal from the first test to the second, that he would discount our first test from a large part of our grade. So that is mucho reassuring. And I got my first paper back from my 390 class and that's a B as well.
So I actually have lots of smiles to go around right now.

The weekend was nice also. Travis, Mike, Gilbert, Bert, Erin, and I all went to see "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" on Friday... and that was a good movie. Its freaky, and even though you know whats going to happen, you still get surprised. It was the first movie i've been to in a while where the whole audiance jumped at the same time. It was fun too, because everyone would jump, and then everyone would laugh at the fact that we all jumped. But it was a good movie, and a good time.

Saturday involved a lot of laying around and relaxing, some researching at the library for this paper which will be the death of me, and making our beef stew. My boss Laura gave me a crockpot... so Travis and I slow cooked a beef stew all day. It was fun. I love when Trav and I get to be domestic together!! :-) That night we hung out at the house for a little bit... then watched movies until we fell asleep.

Sunday Travis and I went out to McGrady's with Mike for our weekly meal. We watched football first there, then at the house. It was great... I kicked ass this week!! So that was fun. Then we did work, and I talked to Ro who is visiting this coming weekend. Yay!! We caught up a lot... and it was cute because we talked about our ideal engagement rings. And Travis took notes!! :-D That makes me very happy. So right now you have an overall, very satisfied Megan talking to you! That is a good thing. Well, time to go get work done.


ps. Happy Birthday Lauren!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


wonderful weekend, and now the Blah...

So pacing break was the most wonderful thing in the world, and really the R&R I needed... Seeing heather was great, and we had so much fun. I needed to see her. Lately I've been missing big time. Then camping with my boy... oh man, i couldn't have picked anything better! We got to cook on the fire, and snuggle in our sleeping bags at night, and see a bear up close (okay, that part was scary!!). The best though was just the quality alone time we got. And we exchanged anniversary presents. He is so awesome. I got a pretty necklace (silver and jade, i think), and an Eagles jersey!! Yay! I was going to get one myself before, so I'm glad I waited. And he got the trip, and these silver wine glasses that were engraved with our names. He also has a shirt coming, if it ever gets back in stock!! I hope, I hope! We exchanged those on Friday night because I wanted him to be able to use the glasses for the champagne I brought (from my Uncle Wray for my birthday). It was definitely wonderful. Then yesterday (the 13th), was our actual anniversary... 3 years. Trav took off which was nice... I love being able to come home to him there. We laid around and watched movies on TV, and got Chinese food for dinner. Then of course we watched the game... yay for STL, but boo for the lower score (tie-breaker, Trav won). It was a great day over all.

Now, my original plan was to end this entry with my happy thoughts, but today has just plunged me into reality again.

This is a call to the colorblind
This is an IOU
Stranded behind a horizon line
Try to be something true
Yes, I'm grounded
Got my wings clipped
I'm surrounded by
All this pavement
Guess I'll circle
While I'm waiting
For my fuse to dry
Chorus: Someday I'll fly
Someday I'll soar
Someday I'll be
So damn much more
Cause I'm bigger than my body
Gives me credit for

Why is it not the time?
What is there more to learn?
I've shed this skin
I've been tripping in
And I've never quite returned

Yes, I'm grounded
Got my wings clipped
I'm surrounded by
All this pavement
Guess I'll circle
While I'm waiting
For my fuse to dry

Cause I'm bigger than my body now
Maybe I'll tangle in the power lines
And it might be over in a second's time
But I'll gladly go down in a flame I
f the flame's what it takes to remember my name
To remember my name, oh Yes, I'm grounded
Got my wings clipped I'm surrounded by
All this pavement
Guess I'll circle
While I'm waiting
For my fuse to dry

Cause I'm bigger than my body
Bigger than my body
Bigger than my body now

John Mayer – Bigger than my Body

Lets see, first I had to wake up and realize that Trav was gone again for the rest of the week. Boo for that, I just can't wait to graduate and be able to wake up next to him everyday. Then I got my test back, and lets just say that I currently despise Professor Barkey. Which of course made me think about my paper which I don't know how I'm going to do it... and now that my first test went so poorly despite my days of studying, I really have to get a kick ass grade on it to pull my test grade up.

I'm just depressed because I love IR, but it makes me feel so stupid. Why can't I get things? Why can't I remember stupid names and places and dates? I've been feeling like I picked the wrong major for about the last year now... but it was too late to do anything about it. And I can't understand how people can graduate a semester early as a double major, and I can't do one major well. I guess I didn't plan things out correctly... I guess I am just not smart enough to do as well I as know I should be able to do.

So there we go... instead of ending on the happy "I Love My Travis" note that I originally wanted to end on, we'll stop here on the "I'm a retard and can't handle feeling stupid anymore" note. What a tuesday.


wonderful things to look forward to...

I feel like writing in pretty blues today... I'm in just such a good mood!! Lol. This week gives me so much to look forward to. I have gotten myself slightly overwhelmed in the past month, and this week is my chance to make it better. Wednesday I work until 8:30 like normal... and like normal I will be going home to do work, but the nice part is I will be doing it because I want to. Not because I have to! I figure I will be able to look ahead and make some plans for myself for what needs to be done by when. Then sleep early!! Lol... Thursday is the first day of pacing break. But I will be working, which is actually very okay with me because then I will have Friday completely off. 9:30 until 12:30 or 1 I will be at Laura's. Then 1 - 5 I will be at Global Horizons. Then my real vacation starts. Thursday night is all about Heather and I getting some quality time together! We're hitting the vintage shop and then KCF, then then a diner. Good times. And Friday we get to ... sLeEp In!!!!!! Halleluah! I'm so very excited about that. Hang out there until whenever... then back to my place and finish packing for camping with my boy this weekend. That's right, Trav and I are leaving Friday afternoon/early evening and heading to Rickette's Glen State Park in upstate PA for some quality time and some nature. It should be great. Sleeping in a tent, roasting marshmellows, making smores, roasting weiners, carving a pumpkin, hiking and seeing the waterfalls... I really really can't wait. We might also hit Knobles while we're their... just for the fun of it. It's such a cute amusement park, why not?! Then back to Lehigh Sunday night. And Monday (which trav took off), is our 3 year anniversary. How sweet does all that sound?! It's definitely the R & R that I desperately need.

Well, time for me to get some work done... Hasta Luego!


Another Manic Monday...

A little Irish luck for you. Lets see, when did I write last... I think it was Thursday. Well then, I guess the first step would be to write about the weekend.

Thursday night (Senior Night) was fun. Definitely better then the last one because it was good times, and I didn't get really drunk. I like that. Last senior night was a good time but it ended so badly because all my shots hit me right when I was leaving the bar, and I was already completely trashed. So I ended up "sleeping" on my bathroom floor that night, which is something I never want to do again! But lets not talk about that anymore. So Thursday after I left the bar (only had one drink, and basically socialize the whole time)... I hit Stella's for a little because she was having a little party thing. Hung out there for a bit, talked to Daryn for a while, got the cutest picture of Daryn/Liz/&Myself... then went home and hit the sack. Last week was exhausting due to late nights studying, and man did I sleep that night.

Friday Trav and i BBQed on my new grill. Fun times!! Then we just relaxed and watched a movie and went to bed. It was very nice actually, and was a good thing considering the little sleep we ended up getting Saturday night. So we woke up that morning and got ready and left for the wedding. It was out in Hershey, actually right next to the park. It definitely stunk for Ollie and Amy because it rained some (outdoor wedding)... but it was still so beautiful, and cleared up by the end. So after that it was on to the reception, and lots of food and socializing, and a little drinking (but only two drinks for me the whole time we were there, because I was driving). Amy is such a sweet girl, and I'm glad I got to know her better this weekend... I really didn't know who Ollie was marrying before because we had only talked once or twice when they came up to Psi U. But she really is great, and they really are great together, and I know they are going to be very happy.
So after the reception, Amy and Ollie, Brian and Stacy, Travis and I all headed out together and hit the DragonFly... which was one of the clubs in Harrisburg that we had gone to with Mary's Bachlorette Party (probably wrote about it in that entry, if you want to read more). (Amusing side note: Travis borrowed clothes from Brian, and I borrowed clothes from Stacy to wear out because we originally had planned on going home that night. So all size 4 of me ended up having to squeeze into a pair of size 1 jeans!!! That was interesting. And get this... Travis wore Jeans! Lol. In our 3 years together, I have seen Travis in jeans a total of: ZERO times! It was amusing. But back to the real story.)
It was a good time, but soooo crowded, and mostly with these HUGE black men who were very brash and open about what they were there for! One of them even reached Between! Travis and I to pinch my ass... while we were dancing together. That was a new one. It was fun... but man was I exhausted by the time we left (after last call).
We didn't get to bed until 3:30 or so... and had to be up to check out of our sleezy motel by 11. So Sunday was a sleepy day! But it was also fun. Brunch with everyone fromt the night before plus James and his girlfriend. Then home again (with Travis and my new Beta Oliver... hehe, to keep my Harvest company) taking the 2.5 hour "scenic route". Yup, aka we missed our exit!! Lol, opps. But it actually turned out to be one of those great drives, which was really amusing and fun and totally worth it. Got home and went out for dinner at McGrady's (free dinner for me for my win in football last week). Then Trav and I just hung out and cleaned my room/did homework for the rest of the night. Then bed.

As for today... Well, today is okay for a Monday. I don't have class at one because it is Yom Kippur... so that is nice. I'll have some free time between work at Philo, and work at Laura's. I'll probably see if I can get my film developed from the wedding. Oh! And I got a great note from someone that I haven't talked to or heard from in a while. So that was a nice surprise and made me feel very good.
Wow... well it's 1 already... so time for me to head out. I will definitely write more later though, because I feel very talkative right now! Bye!!


So I am in an absolutely wonderful mood today! I am done with my stupid 344 test, and I think it actually went well. This is so very exciting. Anyone who saw me studying can tell you that I was horribly nervous about this test, and convinced that I was going to fail. So happiness about that, and here's hoping I did as well as I thought I did!! Tonight should be a good time to finish up the day too, because it's senior night at the Ho. Ever since I went to Happy Hour for dinner with Stella on Tuesday, I've been thinking about the bar. But I'm going to be a good girl and not have too much to drink. As much as I want my weekend to start now, I still have another day.

I'm really quite happy now. The test is a huge weight off my shoulders, because no matter what I get, its out of my hands now. And this weekend is going to be lots of fun. Cooking out on my new grill (which I won!) and a movie, all with my boy, on Friday night. Then going to watch one thing I never thought I would see... Ollie's Wedding! Probably hanging out at the house that night after we get back from the reception. Then Sunday probably walking around to see the mules... and dinner on Trav and Mike for winning the football pool last week. Yay for winning things, and feeling a huge weight off my back, and for pretty autumn weather, with pretty autumn smells in the air... and yay for good friends and good fun, and of course for my wonderful man.

And Yay for everything finally feeling right again!
Especially me!!
