I’ve never been so happy to be wrong.


The snow! It came! And school has been cancelled! I was wrong! I would have placed money on the fact that our University would not cancel because they never do but they did! :D

Yesterday after class, I was sitting and lunch, arguing with freshman on how they’d never cancel when I received a text saying that they had. Now, it’s a miracle they cancelled it at all but the fact that they called it before there was any snow to even be seen is even more so, usually if they cancel for anything, they’ve cancelled at 6 that morning.

Needless to say, since there was nothing that had to be done today, there was much silly times last night. We watched Hot Rod, ate macaroni and cheese, stayed up til 5am just hanging out. It was perfect. :)

Today we all slept in a bit (For obvious reasons) played some board games and we’re currently just chilling out and making Andrew finish watching BBC Sherlock.

Snow days are the best days.

No. Snow. Stahp.


Welcome to Kansas, where one week it’s warm enough to go without a coat and the next there’s a huge winter storm coming.

Tomorrow we’re supposed to get 8-12 inches of snow, now I’m assuming the weather people are as usual about the amount but I feel certain it will at least be very cold which I’m not happy about. I hate the snow! But the worst part about it is our University does not close for snow. Or anything. Like for real, I’m pretty sure the zombie apocalypse could happen and they’d still have school…

All the freshman here are like yeah! School’s totally gonna be closed tomorrow! But no, I’m willing to bet that everything will still happen. Sure, individual teachers might cancel class but I will still have to go to work at 8am and it appears that none of my teachers will cancel so instead of a happy snow day, I’ll have a sad day trudging through who knows how much snow. Sigh.

I really hope the weather/University proves me wrong this time…

I’m trying to be happy with the cold, really I am.


Well, it happened. It got cold today (Wow, real interesting post, Hope. Let’s talk about the weather again…) as was inevitable. As you all know I hate the cold but as previously discussed, I really am trying to like it more this year. Or at least not complain about it as much and not be so miserable with it. I mean, it’s gonna happen regardless of how I feel about it, I might as well accept that and get on with my life. Anyways, yesterday was perfectly nice outside, about 75 degrees, beautiful sunny day then I was told that today it was supposed to snow. Now, anywhere other than Kansas people would probably be like, “What? Snow? After a day like this? Nah… Won’t happen.” Us in Kansas however know that it’s possible for all four seasons to occur within one day so it wasn’t too surprising to hear but I was still a bit sad. This morning however I was determined to make the best of my day, sure I don’t like the cold but that doesn’t mean I have to be so sad about it. So I woke up, made some coffee and got ready for class, bundled up and went outside to class. When I first left for class at about 9, it really wasn’t that bad and I was convinced the weatherman had been lying to us, once I got out of class at 1:20, I knew that was not the case. It was freezing and raining but I still was ok, I had a cute hat on and had prepared for my day with several layers and a coat. The rain and nasty looking clouds weren’t exactly encouraging but as I walked to work listening to Vampire Weekend songs on my iPod, I just decided to think about how some people do love this weather and God made it this way for a reason. So yeah, I’m a bit happier with this than normal. I still have a ways to go here but, hey, at least this post hasn’t been complaining about the cold wetness of outside.
Sorry for this über boring post about the weather by the way… My creativity for the day appears to be blocked. Hopefully I’ll be more interesting tomorrow.

P.S. I’ve gained like 5 subscribers in the past week so I would just like to welcome and thank you all for reading! Any readers to my blog make me happy and I love you all!

*Sigh* I hate this….


Yesterday if you notice from my pictures, it was quite nice outside. 70 degrees in fact. Perfect almost-spring day. Tomorrow’s forecast, you ask? 50 degrees. The rest of the week, 60’s and 70’s. So what’s happening right now? Lots and lots of snow. As in 5 inches of snow. What? Why is the weather so FREAKING BI-POLAR! I mean honestly! This is just ridiculous. It started off fairly nice weather this morning but a bit cold, then, it started getting overcast and rainy-looking. When Kendra (my roommate) and I got half way back to college and then it started pouring AND snowing. It was ridiculous, then we passed through it and it was fine again. Now it started again… a lot. :/ I wish it would stop.
Well, that’s about all I have to say for the day.
Hope you’re all doing splendidly!
Also, here’s a song suggestion for the day!

Disney Princesses are my favorite


Well, I don’t have a lot to say about today but we’re going to go see Tangled at the student union tonight so I wanted to at least have a short post for the day.

My day has been pretty good and pretty productive, my acting class was cancelled for the day due to snow so that was fun but alas, I still had to go to Spanish. It figures that my favorite class would be cancelled but my least favorite one wouldn’t be. Stupid Spanish 4. :/

The snow is still here but fortunately it’s starting to melt a bit and there hasn’t been any more. Next week is supposed to be in the 60s for the whole week so that’s real exciting. :)

Other than that all I did was homework and took a very long, nice nap.

We’re leaving now so here are some pictures from yesterday! Including one of how miserable I was in the cold.

I “like” you


Recently I’ve had some deep posts about important things, this one is not at all. This post is about a very fun activity that my friend Alex and I did last night. We decided to go on all our friends Facebook walls and “like” everything we possibly could just so they would have a ton of notifications. It was great fun. In return I got comments on my wall such as, “Why thank you for all your likes!” “Hey you… and the other one, not appreciated.” “Why must you “like” everything on my wall? I’m beginning to doubt the sincerity behind the liking.” “I have an odd feeling that you might have facebook stalked me and liked most of my stati. (multiple statuses)” and then some friends decided to fight back also liking everything of mine. It wasn’t bad until this afternoon when I just got on to have NINETY-SIX notifications from my friend Kat. I have now called my surrender. But, it was a ton of fun I must admit, I just didn’t realize I was starting a war…

In other news, yesterday morning I was rudely awoken at roughly 4 in the morning to two drunk girls laughing in the hallways who then pulled the fire alarm. That was lots of fun… and very cold. The rest of yesterday turned out to be lovely though, it was a nice 70 degrees outside and I deeply enjoyed walking around outside with just a t-shirt, jeans and no shoes. Today however showed just how bipolar Kansas weather can get, it is currently 30 degrees (though with wind feels like 17) and is very snowy, sleety (I don’t think that’s a real word…) and just in general very nasty and cold.
I’m getting through it though with a nice cup of tea, some music and my happy-making, bright yellow rain boots!

My soundtrack for today is mostly the same as it has been recently with a new addition of Pierce the Veil’s song, “Fast Times at Claremont High”, it’s just splendid!

Well, I must go!
Hope you all have better weather than I do!

Snow is the Spawn of the Devil.


Ok so I never wrote again last night like I promised because it took me quite a while to finish my paper that I had to turn into today. But no worries, I’m still planning on writing a meaningful post right after this one, but in this one I need to rant. Rant about the snow and how terribly cold it is. And awful. And wet. And slippery. And blowy. (I’m pretty dang sure that blowy is not a word but now it is so don’t worry about it! :P) It’s currently 10 degrees outside here with a windchill of -11. Fun stuff right? I just love it! It’s my favorite. NOT. Needless to say I was NOT happy about going outside in the snow to get to my classes but because I am a goody-goody who would never skip class, I went. First I had history and walking there was cold and slippery but it wasn’t snowing to badly at that point, the wind was just awful. When I came out of class however, it was all the aforementioned things plus it was snowing a bit heavily whilst blowing around all over the place, making it extremely difficult to see as I made my way to the building for English. English class was fine, nothing to exciting, we worked on our papers the whole time and peer reviewed them for each other. It was pretty easy but the whole time I was dreading going back out into the snow, the one good point of this whole thing was the fact that my English teacher gave us a bit of extra credit for just bothering to show up in the snow, so that was good but walking back was not pleasant. I have never been so cold in all of my life! I was quite upset… But now I’m sitting, watching Lost (1st episode of season 6 now!) and drinking my yummy tea.
That’s all of my rant for today, I just had to let you all hear how sad the snow makes me. For the millionth time. :)
