i seriously need to get out of my gosh dang box…hahah. what is it, why is it that when im around you, i just can’t speak. butterflies much? or that tingly feelin’, not so sure. infatuated by you…just kidding. i am not whatsoever flirtatious…haha. i mean i dont need to be, but i tend to either ‘run or hide’ or avoid…my heart for some reason wants to ‘try’ because i haven’t yet but that at the same time my heart is saying what if nothing happens. i don’t know..i guess im just scared/tired getting my heart crushed by a crush. and anyways, not sure if im ready for anything to happen. or if ever there was a chance for me. if that makes any sense. but how will i know if i never try to get to know the person, right? ah. my mind is encircling with thoughts constantly. this is a natural feeling eh? i guess im a hopeful romantic. i feel like a guy needs to sweep me off my feet…haha. kinda cliche but eh ive never had a relationship so i have no idea anything that is real. ive been searching my whole life for that one person who is right for me. i guess time will tell so as for now i will still be patiently waiting…and if there is an opportunity i will do my best to speak up…
*thanks to roommate and taryn encouraging me always in this aspect of life. hehe.
started off my morning really early for a saturday.
-volunteered for the Habitat for Humanity. i’ve always wanted to do this, but never had the opportunity to do so until today. Had to wear hard hats and gloves all day. did foundation on some of the houses-hammering, taking out pieces of wood, wiring, digging and sweeping the houses. gibby and i were building buddies! and during lunch we had a girl talk, we need to do more of those gibby! After we lunch still on break time, some us went to starbucks. it was a great experience for me. i love the feeling of knowing that I can help people out in some way or another. I would love to be more involved with this project in the future. got down right dirty from the rain and dirt! ha. um, my body is feelin’ a little bit sore right now.
-Eep & I did some homework/studying, the usual for us! haha.
-Dinner with the girls from my floor.
-First evaaaar Homecoming dance. in college? yeah weird i know. got all ready for the dancing listening to hyped up music. semi-formal. daaance daaance my little heart away. so if get onto my level it was super hot when everyone was jammed packed around us. but dj was kinda iffy just in my opinion. it was an “okay” dance. ive been to better ones. ha, so after the dance i we were walking back to the car and for some reason i went to the wrong one and opened the door of someone elses car. um yeah how embarrassing and the people who owned the car and the group of them were walking. not sure if they saw me. haha. not sure what was wrong with me after the dance?
-Girl Talk with roommate & taryn, :):):) good way to end the night!
*mission unaccomplished though, eh. i just didn’t have the courage. next dance fa sho though. just a tad bit bummed. but oh wells.
-physics. got our exam 1 back today. did pretty good on the two pages and not so much on one of them. all together my average was okay. well not sure where the cut off point is for the curve. we’ll see.
-communications. first exam was today. got our scores back already and got a b. ehhhh, wish i could have done better/studied more since i studied for bio for the most of last weekend/earlier this week. but its okay its the first one right?
—Lunch with the girls.
-bio. spu alumni of the bio department who used to work at sea world talked about his previous job working with the killer whales. pretty cool. then for lecture we talked about how humans fit into the phylum chordates. and talked a little bit about reproduction.
-bjorn and i went to the bio lab for a little bit to study for our lab exam next week.
-Parentals came to bring me food and went to the back.
—Dinner with the girls.
-TALENT SHOW. talented people at spooooo:) it was goood! after that Mcdonalds run with roommate, eep, gibby, taryn, megan & bjorn!
HOMECOMING WEEKEND, can’t wait for the daaaaance tomorrow night.
Lab dayyy. started off my morning waking up at 7:30am to study communications. exam tomorrow and i figured i didnt have much time to study since i was in lab for 5 hours today and i spent most of my weekend/tuesday studying for my bio one on wednesday.
-physics lab. started/finished the superposition and reflection of pulses. basically it just went over frequency, amplitude, width of the pulse, etc… demonstrated with a spring. oh and one of the people at my table had the seattle times article and on the front page was a bellevue couple didn’t want their baby because it was fat. wow, right?
—Lunch with the girls, the usual:)
-library with red for 20 minutes or so. just chit chatting about life! :)
-bio lab. prof explained more in depth on what were doing in lab. phylum chordates sub phylum vertebrata and developmental biology. we went up to the green room (haven’t been in the green room yet) to look at poisonous dart frogs. it was black and had fluorescent green stripe on it. then back to lab we looked at the different classes of the sub-phylum vertebrata. Class Agnatha (Jawless fish), there was a dissected specimen and a jar model. Class Chondrichthyes (Cartilaginous fishes) skate specimen, looked at shark jaws, and a preserved dogfish embryo. Class Osteichthyes (Bony fishes), dissected specimen and bone model. Class Amphibia (Amphibians) live frogs, dissected frog model, and preserved specimens in jars. Class Reptilia (Reptiles), live turtles and snakes (people were just holding them during lab, prof, and ta), turtle shells and demo dissections, preserved specimens in jars, saw a video of a horned lizard squirting out blood from its eye for defense (crazy). Class Aves (Birds), bird skeleton and feathers under the microscope. Class Mammalia (Mammals), assorted skeletons, preserved specimens in jars, skulls with teeth (had to count how many incisors (8), canines (4) and pre molars/molars (20), live specimens of mice. Reproduction & development powerpoint slides basically we were looking at sperm from different mammals and ova. Lastly, we observed animal development in sea stars vs frogs by models of the cleavage/gastrulation/organ formation. Got out of lab 30 minutes early:) found out my first lab exam is next week and not in 2 weeks, guhhhreat. study study study!
-Dinner with roommate, eep, kass & annie.
-back up to the dorm room and studied for communications basically the whole night after dinner. finished the small tub of strawberry haagen daz ice cream.
*So this week i planned out my outfit for each day m-f last sunday night. hahah, uh i followed it for the most part might have switched days for a few outfits though.
-woke up and found cute little notes on my desk from my roommate! loveeeee you poops:) paula texted me saying good luck this morning. and my mom wrote on my fb wall to wish me good luck too. good way to start a morning before a test!
-Physics. my group finished our simple harmonic motion tutorial. sang “to the right to the right” in the tune of beyonce’s irreplaceable. since one of the answers to the questions was on the right. and my group and i discussed our homework that was due earlier today. did the pretest for tomorrows tutorial. got out of class 10 minutes early.
-communications. finished chapter 3 of the lecture outline in class. and finished the bonhoeffer documentary that we started monday. eh, i was semi-fallin’ asleep…but i didnt. phew! got out of class 10 minutes early as well.
—Lunch with the girls:)
-Bio. Exam 1 today. 45 multiple choice and 1 short answer. it went well i believe! so i thought i missed a little section on the short answer as i was walking up the hill so i was like aw crap. but then i looked it up in my notes and it was correct! yeee. hopefully mc was okay…haha.
-after class. went back up to the dorms worked on mastering physics, online physics hw.
-taryn and i went up to queen anne and studied for 2 hours or so at starbucks. finished my bio pre-lab questions and read through the lab for tomorrow. ordered an ice caramel macchiato, the barista put two shots…he was like “oh hope you don’t mind, i put two shots in yours since it was both out..” um, okay. ha, hopefully i can fall asleep tonight eh?
—Dinner with the girlssss, typical typical:) gotta love em’.
-finished mastering physics. eep, red, elizabeth d, bri, gibby, and taryn either chilled in our room for a bit or stopped by! :)
-studied for communications exam for the rest of the night. exam on friday.
-started my morning early. got a chocolate chip scone and a white chocolate mocha. signed up with bri for habitat for humanity on saturday. headed to the library at 8am. Red, Bri and i made a commitment of waking up early this morning from last night. Bri and i studied together until she had to leave for lab. Bjorn joined us for a little bit too. studied the lecture powerpoint slides for animal bio. [4 hours in the library]
-Lunch with red! this in the matter of fact would be my break time from studying. ha.
-back to the library. 3rd floor. as i was gazing through the library window i saw an arthropod chelicerate arachid aka spider. hahah, this is what happens when you’ve been in the library all day studying bio :) one of the lights above me was twitching like crazy, its actually annoying..it goes twitch, twitch, twitch. shuttaaap. hah. red and bjorn joined me. [another 4 hours in the library]
*Listening to pandora:)
—Dinner. with the girls and bjorn. ahaha, highlight of dinner would be when kassandra told bjorn that he was a B****. haha, and she had a serious face too. it was hilarious.
-back to the library round 3. sat a different place this time without the comfortable chairs since some guy took my spot. finished going over the powerpoint slides round 09482384 times…well so it feels like. haha. bjorn came back to join me. then i read over the notes and called it good for the day. [another 2 hours in the library]
-back up to the dorm. yeah only walked up the hill once today. chilled in eep’s and gibby’s room with jill, of course eep:), red, kass, bjorn and taryn. looked at pictures from last year from elizabeth’s laptop and videos…goooooooooooood times :)
-watched bad girls club with jill and eep sort of as she colors for a&p, haha.
Case of the mondaysssss, ahah. this week will be eh, two exams.
-Physics. started on the simple harmonic motion tutorial. yuck, not a fan of simple harmonic motion….but people at my table made it fun. ohkay, so we got off topic and had our own little tangents but we still ended up focusing back to our tutorial.
-Communications. we watched the part of the bonhoeffer documentary. i actual didn’t know who he was until today. it was around the time of world war II. anyways, writing a response paper to this movie due next friday. then we went back to chapter 3 lecture outline.
—Lunch. um, so i got laughed at today….but by roommate, eep, gibby, hoye & red. i had no clue why…..until they told me. nope, not going to say it on here…hahah. if you were there you know what it was about!
-Bio. surprised quiz numero 3, yep not expecting it since we have an exam on wednesday. but bjorn figured we still needed 3 quizzes between this week and next week since we have 10 quizzes for the 10 weeks of the quarter. but quiz wasn’t that bad, i kinda missed 3 though. oh welllll, we get to drop the lowest one and this would be my lowest one so far. anways, lecture was basically finishing the powerpoint on deuterostomes. going into detail in echinodermata and chordates. my prof said that we ate a dinosaur for thanksgiving. birds are reptiles and are considered dinosaurs, because their feet are scaly. weird right?
-after that class i got coffee at pura vida. caramelado, mmm it was needed. saw abbey and talked a few minutes, i barely see her on campus anymore.
-back up to the dorm. and was in the balcony lounge as i studied bio again. i checked my email and saw that julia had posted our etc magazine thank you video on the spu website. how embarassing. haha but i made a video of our mess up videos….hilarious they are. hahaha.
—Dinner. sat in the narnia corner. yupppp.
-back to the room. Eep and red and i studied/worked on things for a few hours or so. i studied bio powerpoints again. lots of laughter and whatnots. Red studying for her ucor south america quiz-“Shake your caracas in venezuela” and “capital of bolivia is la paz/sucre because I studied bolivia in 3rd grade while i ate pez” haha. what else happened?? oh kass told us about the worlds youngest mother was 5 years old. how i thought both of them said something to me but they didn’t and i couldnt stop giggling/laughing. gibby brought us haagen-dazs ice cream, strawberry<3 watched music videos. talking about how red’s skin was soft. then bri joined us for a little bit! Red tried to fool bri about having a boyfraaan named tyson…hahaha. Red introduced me to amber pacific. i like their songs. coming to seattle next month, hmm kinda wanna see them? and then he is we is coming in march, but its the sunday before finals week ehh not a good idea, but i would really love to see them.
Started my sunday very early, and boy it feels good.
-went to bethany community church with Taryn this morning. 9am service. first time i’ve been to this church. it was pretty good. sermon was on chapter two in romans.
-Taryn and i decided to eat breakfast at Beth’s Cafe since we were super super hungry. I had the mini breakfast which included two sausage links, hash browns, toast, and egg! yummm, i miss having these types of breakfasts since i don’t have breakfast in my meal plan. so i’d only eat breakfast foods during the weekend when they had brunch or when i go home. *3rd day in a row of hanging out! ha, gotta love this chica!
-went back to spooo. finished going over bio powerpoints and notes. made an outline for the animal taxonomy with phylums, sub phylums and classes. (Porifera, Cnideria, Ctenophora, Plathyhelminthes, Acoelomorpha, Rotifera, Nematodes, Annelids, Mollusks, Arthropoda, Echinodermata, & chordates) those are the phylums! hehe. Roommate, Gibby & Red chilled with us too as we studied/hw and much on mike and ike’s, haven’t had these in forevaaa.
-Eep and i basically studied from 1pm until dinner and than after until 11:30pm. dedicated much ha? anywho, it felt like i never got out of my room except after i got back this morning and for dinner. finished my chapter 3 study guide for communications, mm exam friday for this class. and studied more for bio. Hoye joined us for a little while. we finished the rest my “grasshoppers” (thin mints) and megan no they are not filipino. keebler brand…haha.
Mmmm, productive day. feels like my brain is on overload though. its okay i guess, exam days are wednesday and friday. looking forward to the weekend, Talent Show/Homecoming weekend:)
*Song i’ve been listening to a lot today. Sex Therapy-Robin Thicke.
wellllllll, weddings. one in april in vegas and one in florida in november. ughhh, i wanna go so baaaad! but classes are in the way, meaning i can only go over the weekend. hmph…….we’ll seee. im in the need of a vacation like no other. somewhere warm, and those two places complete that. haha. ohkay, back to studying nowww.
-came back to the dorm room. eep and i basically did studying. A&P for her, and i did my buoyance homework for physics. and read chapter 34 deuterostomes and went over powerpoint slides for bio.
—Dinner with some of the girls on my floor.
-Studied more of bio. Eep and I basically lose our minds when we study for a long long long time. haha. but we do indeed take study breaks! and have frequent visitors to keep us from going insane in the membrane ;) gibby, thanks for writing all the things i said when i was going crazy on my mirror!
-went to get fro yo at CEFIORE with Taryn! mmmm, definitely a needed break. i had mangos, strawberries, and mochi in mine. it was just us two again. part two of adventure from last night. aw, it’s great spending time with this chica! she’s amazing, we’re alike in sooooo many ways. ha. we definitely bumped tunes from ipod. Replay, Tik tok, and those silly little love songs that relate to us. hahah. good times! and we took pictures, the usual:) and you know our typical life convos, ahehe ;)
-when we came back i reviewed a little bit more of the powerpoints for bio. and chit chatted with my roommate jill, eep, taryn, bjorn and gibby for a little bit!
*ended up being a chill saturday filled with productivity and fun-ness. and i noticed that the layers on my hair are getting longer :) yaaaays!
-Physics. first exam of the quarter and first exam in this class was today. well let’s see it was on pressure in a liquid, ideal gas law and angular momentum. ah, hopefully i did okay? it was the first one sooooo i guess its okay eh?
-communications. we did went over more of the lecture outline for chapter 3. ohhhhhh boy, professor pope was super funny today…hahaha. oh my gosh, she’s so crazy i love it! this class is great. hah. she asked me at the end of the class how tall i was..hahah. anyways exam for this class is next friday, one week…
—Lunch. with the lunch crew! oh and btw guys i am not louddddddd, ahehe.
-Bio. lecture was over the echinoderms and chordates mostly. this class is great as well!
-Downtown with my roommate. went shopping at urban. got a purple dressy tank and floral skirt! met up with roommate’s cousins hung out for a bit in downtown! and we grabbed chipotle for dinner and ate it back at our dorm. oh and the trunk ride was funnnn. haha
-Taryn and I went to golden gardens. got frostees at wendys! and watched what happens in vegas!
-physics lab. 10:30am-12:20pm. finished with pressure in a liquid tutorial. than my group and i asked questions about our hw/for the exam tomorrow. went over pressure in a liquid concepts which made sense by the end of the 2 hours! :)
—Lunch. Ravioli or as what elizabeth d. calls them “pillows” haha and caesar salad. good combination if i must say.
-Bio lab. we examined phylum mollusca and different classes underneath that clams, oysters, mussels, scallops, snails, slugs, sea slugs, chitons, squids, octopuses nautiluses and cuttlefish), nematodes, phylum arthropoda and different sub-phylums underneath that (crayfish, lobsters, shrimp, crabs, barnacles, copepods, isopods, and others, Insects, Centipedes, millipedes, spiders, scorpions, ticks, mites, daddy long legs, and horseshoe crabs) phylum echinodermata (star fish) and phylum chordata (invertebrate). first dissection lab:) dissected a crayfish and a sea star (star fish). it was quite interesting to see the insides of these animals even though they might just be a crayfish or a starfish. i know, im kinda a bio nerd right? ;) got my first battle wound…..um no just a small cut from a scalpel from my lab partner on accident. ha, i was helping clean the dissecting tray and the scalpel touched a little of my hand. didn’t really bleed, thank goodness. oh yeah, first day of dissecting and BAM! but overall, lab was gooooood!
-didn’t go to dinner today. so just ate mac & cheese, a bananananana and strawberry lemonade to drink.
-went to physics study sesh at 7pm. met up with robin and crystal. basically it was only us, and then another person showed up 30 minutes later. we stayed until a little pass 9. went over first law of thermodynamics/ideal gas law concepts, pressure in a liquid concepts and angular momentum concepts. made sure we got over the “bumps” or confusion that we each had with either the tutorial and hw. i feel good about this exam before i came to the study sesh, whew. hopefully a good thing for tomorrow:)
-back up to my dorm. studied in the prayer for 2 hours or so on physics and what we just went over during the study sesh.
-Taryn stopped by and we had our deep convo talks. hehe. oh you know about life/love interest ;) ahah, gotta love those talks.
first day of classes this week. and it felt super dee duper long.
-Physics. did the buoyancy pre-test and started a new tutorial on buoyancy. i think its pretty dumb to start a new tutorial since we have our first exam over the past 4 tutorials that we’ve done for the past two weeks. blahhh. aksjfdasjf how i feel about physics…haha but prof told us angular momentum will most likely for sure be one of the 3 pages for our test. and another thing is, they collected one of our homework today so we can study for that unless they give it back tomorrow and the one that we turned in friday which we still haven’t gotten back.
-Communications. first group did their presentation today about chapter 3, self identity. it was good! and we finished up the remaining amount of class time on going over the lecture outline for chapter 3.
—Lunch. um, lots of laughter involved! haha, with the usual lunch crew:)
-Bio. second in class quiz today! i just missed one, i believe so that went well! finished the powerpoint lecture on ecdysozoans and started on the powerpoint about deuterostomes. yeah this class is just so interesting!
-went back up to the dorm room. Eep was in the room. we did hw and ate grasshoppers (thin mints) and pretzels. yummaaay. i re-read my lab for tomorrow and studied some of my tutorials for physics for the exam. Gibby had to dress up uniquely different from everyone and had to go out in public for two hours. this was for a class, so she dressed up as a dinosaur. hahah, aw gibby. we took pictures with her, we meaning roommate, eep and myself. did more physics, as roommate and eep did their homework as well. um, we tend to get crazy….hahaha
—Dinner. with the girls on my floor. aw, they’re great, i love each and everyone of them!
-chilled in the room with roommate, eep & gibby! typical :) basically doing hw, chit chatting and listening to music.
-tried going to sleep before 12am. but roommate and i couldn’t fall asleep so we pretty much talked about life and other stuff until 1am. hah:)
-went to target with my mom and then supermall. grocery shopped/sort of shopped. -studied physics for a little bit. -car ride back to seattle, dad and i sang “you’ll be in my heart” i let him listened to the usher version and we were singing it..haha. -back to SPU, unpacked. chilled with my lovely ladies. watched bad girls club with my roommate. finished study guide questions for communications.
