countdown, etc.

Left this semester (23 days):
1 - 25 page paper
2 - take home finals
2 - regular finals
2 - average size papers

Here are my countdowns:
7 days to Thanksgiving Break (at my rents)
16 days until classes are over
23 days until winter break (SLEEP!)
36 days until Christmas (yay! - in Pittsburg)
38 days until the Hockey game (in Pittsburg)
43 days until New Years (at Muller's?)
61 days until Rent (with Apoc) & the first day of my last semester ever!
107 days until Spring Break (Daytona? with Trav, Mike, Jon, Ed, Ed, and another?)
160 days until my last day of class ever!
186 days until my graduation!! :-D

God I can't wait to graduate. It will be amazing. So today is not a bad day... its not exactly pretty out, but its not cold or windy. The nip in the air feels really good in fact, and that has help my mood hugely. I'm still super stressed and am (obviously) counting down the days until this semester is over; but I'm forcing myself not to freak out about it. I figure that doesn't help anything.

I keep picturing next semester as this golden tinged time in my life, I know it could never live up to what I have made it out to be... but it will be better then this semester, thats for sure! I'll only be taking 14 credits- 2 from a self-paced class, 4 philo, 4 IR 300 level with Wylie, and 4 from a 100 level IR (which I'm excited about). I'll still be working at all three jobs, but less time over all. School and work I'll only be pulling 40 (or so) hour weeks next semester, unlike this one in which I pull about 50 hour weeks. That's not including clubs or homework or meetings either. So that will be nice... plus my early days next semester are 10 o'clocks instead of 9s, and my late are 1045 instead of 920. So that will mean more sleep (which means a happier Megan). Plus I will probably work out on those 1045 days before class... which means a better in shape Megan with a better self esteem and more energy. Yay!
Lol...I'm getting excited just thinking about it.

Well, I should get back to work... but I'll leave you all with a joke.

While suturing a laceration on the hand of a 70-year-old Texas rancher (whose hand had caught in a gate while working cattle), a doctor and the old man were talking about George W. Bush being in the White House. The old Texan said, "Well, ya know, Bush is a 'post turtle'."

Not knowing what the old man meant, the doctor asked him what a post turtle was.
The old man said, "When you're driving down a country road,and you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that's a post turtle.
The old man saw a puzzled look on the doctor's face, so he continued to explain,
"You know he didn't get there by himself, he doesn't belong there, he can't get anything done while he's up there, and you just want to help the poor dumb thing get down."

LMAO... Ciao!


344 and other nonrelated bull

IR 344 is going to be the death of me. This paper is driving me crazy because I can't think of what I want to do it on, can't determine where to start, and will end up getting a D in this class (if i'm lucky) because of it. Professor Barkey looked at me in class today and asked how the paper was going... "its going" i believe was my exact responce. He asked if I want to meet... all I wanted to do was shout "HELL NO!!!!" But obviously I couldn't do that.
So now I have to meet with him next week and I have nothing to show him.


It's a very bad feeling.
But lets see if I can get some good stuff in here.

Well, I won our football poll again. That deserves a big THANK YOU EAGLES!!!!! I love my team. It was a crappy game, but the Eagles pulled through for me. So that's some good right there. Its nice because that means I don't have to put money aside for my meal on Sunday, its covered and my earnings can go straight in my account for bills etc. (I hate money... but this is time to talk about happy things, so we won't discuss that.)

Wow... I really can't think of much else to say. Last week was nice because Travis was up every night except for Monday. Of course the whole time he was studying and sleeping because of his CPA exams... but it was still so nice to have him here. The weekend was pretty relaxing... Oh! and my mom got a new job, which is awesome. But that's about all... Its just been the same old, same old... work, class, homework. Stress. Oh well. That's enough for now.


rabbit rabbit rabbit...

Have you ever hear of the old superstition that when you wake up on the first day of the new month you are supposed to say "Rabbit, rabbit, rabbit"... I can't remember the story my mom told me about where that came from or anything, but it's supposed to bring you good luck. Considering this is the first entry of the new month, I thought I would see how much luck I could get from it.

Anyway, lets see whats new and amazing, or not so amazing, or anything like that which I can update you on. Well, the last day I wrote was the 23rd... damn that's so long. Well, that day I had lunch with my super sweet little, Lauren. That was a great time, and it was so nice to catch up with her. Then that weekend Trav and I, and a bunch of Psi U's went to see 'Scary Movie 3'. Oh my word, it's hilarious!! Much better then the first two. That weekend Rochelle also came up, which was fun. Trav and I went for a walk on Sunday and enjoyed the beautiful weather, and looked at the pretty mules.
Last week the pressures of school work really caught up to me and I was feeling so stressed out, and very exhausted. Up working every night, but not feeling like I was getting anything done because I was too tired to think.
Ex. Thursday night I went to sleep at 10 instead of going out like I originally planned. It was just too much for me.

But friday turned out very well in that I had off from work at Laura's, and the Philo office closed for painting at 12... so I was at the library by 12:30 and stayed their until 5:40ish. It was a long time... but it was very good and I got a killer amount of work done. All my readings for this week in 344, started my 390 paper, and wrote my whole 160 paper in one shot. Not so bad.
Plus I got to go home and soon after Trav was there.

Friday night the crew hoes came over and we all hung out in our coustumes and drank and played cards. Everyone looked awesome! I also managed to figure out a costume which I was happy about. I was a surfer girl with my board shorts, my bikini top, trav's hawiian shirt, my sunglasses, and this horrendous blond wig that Meg N. let me use. It was fun. I definitely got a bit drunk that night... off Boones and shots and Scorpian bowls (apoc and I got first!!). Good times though, and I wasn't even hung over on Saturday. Lol, Trav and Hannah were both drunk though when they woke up! Which was especially funny because we went out to brunch at Ginny's. Great food after which we went home and literally laid around ALL day! We did nothing... which felt great. Then for dinner Trav and I went to Ruby Tuesdays. Mmmm... I'm drooling just thinking about it. After that it was back home and movie watching. We rented '28 days' which is weird and pretty creepy. I liked it. Then to bed and lots of sleep.

Sunday I woke up and made breakfast to surprise travis in bed. Then we got up, showered, and ended up going right to McGrady's to buy Mike his meal. We watched football and talked and it was very relaxing as well. Plus, the weather just made it so much better! After that Trav and I headed home, grabbed our books, and hit the library. We were their from 2 until 6 or so... and managed to get a lot done. Then we headed home, ate leftovers, checked the scores, and got more work done. So Sunday was very productive as well... and relaxing at the same time. This weekend was great. So much what I needed. Plus I won our football poll!! Sweet.

This coming week should be pretty good as well. I have off from work at Laura's today, so straight to the library after class for me. Tomorrow night Trav will be coming... he has his CPA exam in Allentown on Wednesday and Thursday, so he'll be here Tuesday night through Thursday night, head to work Friday morning from my place, then be back up for the weekend on Friday night. Unless I head down there and we chill with Brian. But we will see. Either way I'm excited about having my baby up here with me! We get to fall asleep together every night... something we haven't gotten since he graduated. (Well, besides the occational vacation... i miss Cape Cod! lol.)
Well, anyway... I'm starving so I'm going to go eat. Enjoy the weather everyone, it's georgeous!
