I leave for Latin Academy tomorrow morning. Woah.

Latin Academy is on Friday. I'm not gonna lie, I'm pretty nervous. We're supposed to teach an elective class and I have no idea what to do mine on. No idea whatsoever. I feel very unprepared and overwhelmed and intimidated.

Wawa milkshakes are very tasty. So is their iced coffee. Mmmm.

I wish I had something exciting to write about, but I really don't. I work and I hang out with Randy. That's about it.

I want to see Kung Fu Panda. It looks really cute.

I've been watching LOST non-stop for about the past week. I'm definitely addicted. I think I'll watch Heroes next, as long as I can find somewhere to watch them for free online.

The FXBG Red Robin definitely sucks. My first shift was 8 hours long. Normal serving shifts are 4-5 hours. I was very angry. They don't even do things right. And what makes me the most angry is the fact that I'm not on the schedule for this week. They managed to give me 2 shifts, but still. I only had 3 last week, 2 this week, and leave for Latin Academy next Friday. I'm just really not impressed with this store at all.

My birthday is on Friday. Friday the 13th dun dun DUN! Haha. I have no plans. I'll probably end up just hanging out with Randy or something. I realized today that if all goes as planned, I'll be in Greece for my 21st birthday. Which is kinda cool since I won't be at home so I can get really fucked up, but it's also not cool because I think the drinking age over there is 18 or something. Haha.

The Egypt group left yesterday morning. Now it's kinda lonely.

Man, I really need money.

I should really get better about writing in this thing. I guess I haven't written recently because everything that's been happening I've been keeping to myself.

Randy and I are doing much better now. We had a long talk the other day about the status of our relationship, and the future of our relationship, and it made me very happy to see that we are on the same page with everything. We just have to do some rebuilding.

Greek: A+
Greek History: A+
Roman Elegy: A
Mathematical Origami: A-
Survey of the Exceptional Child: A-

I hate how every time I get an A+, I get an A- to cancel it out. I'm never going to live Chemistry down...Grr.

I'm working at the Red Robin up here for the summer. Weeeeeeee. At least I'll make good money. I don't start until Friday though, which kinda sucks. At least they need me for some fill-in work at Purvis, so I'm making some money!

Beach week was the SHIT. I enjoyed myself very much.

I've decided that I need to give Atlas Shrugged another shot after a conversation about it with a drunk frat boy last night. I need to finish the Iliad and Pride and Prejudice first though.

So I broke up with Randy today. I'm pretty happy with my decision. It'll take a little getting used to, but I think it was the right move.

I'm officially an Alpha Gamma Delta SISTER! It's super exciting. And guess what I'm wearing right now? LETTERS! Yay!

The Certamen also went really well. Now I feel much better about planning Kickoff.

I've got such a sweet schedule for next fall and J-Term:

10:20-11:20 Roman Satire

8:10-9:40 Roman History
9:50-11:20 Educational Psychology
2:10-3:40 (Honors class) The Nature of Evil

10:20-11:20 Roman Satire

8:10-9:40 Roman History
9:50-11:20 Educational Psychology
2:10-3:40 (Honors class) The Nature of Evil

10:20-11:20 Roman Satire

And in J-Term, I'm taking The Ancient City. The first and last weeks will be spent in the classroom from 11:10-1:10. And the middle two weeks will be spent in TURKEY!!

So I just realized that I haven't written in here for 8 weeks, my entire new member period. Oh well! Life has been pretty good. These last two weeks have been and are really busy because State Finals Certamen AND Initiation are on Saturday. Phew. I'll be very glad when that day is over. Being SCL President is much more work than I anticipated, but I'm doing okay with it. I'm super excited for Initiation. Then I'll be an actual AGD sister! And I'll be able to wear my letters!! I'm beyond excited about that.

I'm proctoring a test for Mrs. Daugherty on Wednesday, which means I have to wake up at 6:30. Registration for fall and J-term is on Thursday, which means I have to wake up at 6:30. I have to do a study session with Mrs. Daugherty's classes on Friday, which means I have to wake up at 6:30. lol. I'm not too excited about that. But she's paying me $50. And my schedule for next semester is looking pretty awesome.

Once this week is done, I'm pretty much home free. I'm sooooo ready for that.

I think I'm gonna go be productive now.

DZ doesn't want me. Again. This is so disappointing and upsetting.
I mean, I got invited back to the Alpha Gam house, and they're my second choice, but it still sucks to be turned away from the one I want AGAIN.
I still think I'm going to keep going with Alpha Gam, just to see if I get a bid. And then I'll figure it out from there.

I just don't get it.

2nd week of Spring semester.

*Greek: Easy for me, hard for almost everyone else in the class, with the exception of James. It seriously frustrating how stupid they are. For example, when asked the tense of a verb, one girl's answer was genitive. Yeah...

*Latin: SO MUCH BETTER THIS SEMESTER. Back with Dr. McCaffrey. And back with poetry for the first time since high school. I'm beyond excited. Right now we're doing Catullus, who makes my heart happy, and we go to Ovid later. And then two other guys I've never read.

*Greek History: Eh. 8 am, which sucks. I also don't really know anything about Greek history, so I have to pay attention and what not. The assignments are bad at all though.

*Mathematical Origami: I like the origami part, hate the math part. But that's what I expected. I'm really trying to get the math part. It's just frustrating that she assumes that we remember stuff, so she doesn't teach it to us. And of course all my "friends" are math and physics people, so they just treat me like I'm retarded when I have a question about geometry. Oh well. I'm going to ask her for help tomorrow.

*Survey of the Exceptional Child: Blah. I rode the short bus in elementary school. I will never have a retarded person in a Latin class. Why do I have to take a class that is focused on "students with disabilities"? Oh well. It doesn't seem to bad, I just hate that I have to take it.

Rush week is this week. I'm beyond terrified. We'll see what happens.

Randy is annoying me. Oh well, what's new.

I'm so boredddddddddddddddd.
Breaks from school are always nice for the first few days, but after that, I'm just ready to have something to do again.
I mean, I'm supposed to be reviewing Greek because we have a test in the first week, but I'm not really worried about it.

I need some coffee like woah. I tried to buy some yesterday at Bloom but it wouldn't read my card. It was strange. And of course I had just deposited all my cash onto it in the morning. So I'm still coffeeless :(

I also need a haircut. I think I'll probably end up getting one of those layered/side bangs cuts like everyone else.

J-Term is over THANK GOD. I got As in both of my classes, which I'm pretty happy about. Although I did the math and if I get As for the rest of my college classes, my GPA will still only be a 3.97. Stupid Chemistry ruined it for me. lolz.

Randy is being so sweet and is trying to make up for basically ignoring me for a month. It's nice. I hope it stays like this when we go back to school. Or at least better than it was over J-Term because I can't take another month like that.

Formal Recruitment is the 2nd week of Spring term and I'm getting pretty nervous. I mean, I feel like I'm a different person from the person I was during Fall Recruitment. I'm much happier and more confident. So I'm thinking my chances are pretty decent. I still don't know what I'll do if I don't get a bid from DZ but get one from someone else. Because DZ is really the only one I want. Sigh.

I'm running errands today. Weeeeeee. I've been working at Red Robin for about a month and I still have not gone to the bank. So I have a pretty significant amount of cash on me right now. Oops. At least I'm going today. Randy and I are going to go to the Mac store tomorrow to play with an Air. I really just want to see how tiny they are.

You know, it's almost to the point where I don't even want to try anymore.

OMG I missed One Tree Hill this week and they haven't posted it on the CW website yet.
I'm dyingggggggggg.
Anybody know where else I could watch it that doesn't involve illegal downloading?

Almost over almost over almost over almost over
6 more days of class and then finals.

This last bit of J-Term pretty much sucks:
*Tomorrow - Test in History
*TFriday - a paper due in Philosophy
*Around 100 pages of dense reading every night
*Monday - a project for History that will apparently take me 3-5 hours to research on Saturday at the Library of Virginia in Richmond
*Wednesday - A 400 page book to read and a paper due on it for History
*Thursday - Last Philosophy paper
*Friday - Take home final for Philosophy (ughhhhh) and History final

Weeeeeeeeee. Well, at least I just made myself a to-do list. That's always helpful.

Okay. Off to get some of this stuff done.

I made $60 in tips yesterday and I only worked for 4.5 hours! Woohoo! I was excited.

I smacked my hand really hard on the sink yesterday and I'm pretty sure I like, bruised the bone. It hurts like a bitch.

I really want another tattoo. Something Harry Potter related, preferably. Yeah, I'm just that cool.

I also want white teeth again but I'm scared to use any of the whitening products because I heard they pretty much destroy your teeth.

At the end of today, J-Term is officially halfway over. THANK GOD.

I almost won something at Bingo yesterday. Oh well. It was still kinda cool to actually get a bingo.

I have to work both tonight and tomorrow night, which is pretty annoying. I mean, I want the hours and I need to get most of my hours on the weekends, but it sucks to have to work both Friday and Saturday night. Especially when I've hardly seen Randy at all. :( It's kinda like I don't really even have a boyfriend right now, actually.

Oh well. MONEYZ! And I need that since I bought that Coach purse off of eBay...Hopefully it will be worth it. Haha.

Instead of being productive this morning I've been obsessively checking my email and playing live search club. I've almost got 7,000 tickets!

The new Jalapeno Doritos are crazy good, just so you know.

Oh, I also have that stupid driving clinic tomorrow. Boooooo. I'm there from 8:30-5:00, then I go straight to work. And then I have a paper that's due Monday too. At least I'm kind of excited about my topic. I'm writing about that value of a Classical education, and how/if it can fit into the math and science driven education of today/the future. Hopefully it will turn out alright.

J-Term sucks.
I am definitely ready for it to be over.

But next J-Term I'll be in Turkey!
And the next J-Term I'll be taking Methods of Teaching Latin and maybe Drawing. So this will be the first and last J-Term that sucks. Haha.

I'm trying to be more positive, which is sometimes a little difficult. I just feel that I am overly pessimistic about things and that I complain too much, so I'm trying to make an effort to change that.
