I'm Doing it Again...

Trying to convince myself that I have more homework than I actually do.  I only have to worry about work-shopping six stories by monday instead of the additional stuff I'd thought I'd have to do-read a chapter in the text, write a short from a prompt from the same text.  Usual stuff.  But i checked the syllabus and the teacher doesn't have anything beyond the workshop stuff listed.  Okay...

My brother was up til 3 a.m. this morning, so I had to wake him up at about 11.  Still has the bags under his eyes from it.
Dinner was nice last night, but I didn't sleep all that well myself.  Got homework...

Are boring, but at the same time kind of funny.  Take my brother's high school one this morning.  They specifically say not to cheer or clap during the diploma presentation to prevent blocking out the next candidates name.  They still do it anyway.
Even after they repeated the phrase, and added no noisemakers, there were still people cheering after certain graduates.

Oh Man...

Somehow missed the writing part of today's assignment.  Supposed to do one of the typical 1-3 page exercises and I didn't.  Thankfully it wasn't critical, but I'd rather not do that...

Memorial Day!

Wow, it was hot yesterday.  My family walked to the cemetery where both of my grandpa's and one of my grandmothers are buried.  Not to mention two uncles and an aunt-I think-.  A good three mile walk though.  Took our dogs with us and they kind of needed a break on the way home.
Then my sister and I spent two and a half hours weeding the garden-hate morning glory-wearing jeans and swimsuits.  Both of us got a line of sunburn where the suits slid down while we were bent over.  Figures.
Barbecue at my aunts was fun, save I was really worn out by that point.
Have two stories to read, six reviews to write, and still have a 3-4 page paper to do as well.

Saturdays seems to have a lot of it around my house. Mainly because we are cleaning most of the day and the dust gets thrown around.  We got a new vacuum that takes most of it out of the air, but nothing is perfect at it.
Cleaned my room too, and found a loose board under my bed that i had to wrestle back into place.  Supposed to rain today...

Friday, May 23, 2014


My brother got in trouble with my parents, now everyone's mad again.  But i managed to convince the boys to weed the garden for a good half hour-in the case of the youngest-before they went inside.
Not much homework to do, just math and an english paper.  So far no word on the job situation...

Wednesday, May 21, 2014


Had to buy another textbook due to how my online course is going.  Paid my parents rent for the month, as i don't think I've done it yet.  Woke up last night with that eerie feeling of bugs crawling over me.  Vacuumed the bed this morning anyway.
Another assignment I need to do today, then I'm good.

Here We Go...

Just sent in an application for a job in the school district where my dad works.  Not as complicated as some I've filled out, but certainly not the least.
Lots of homework for today and tomorrow...
My brother graduated from seminary yesterday.  Kind of fun, as my YSA ward was serving the treats.  Not me, but I knew the people there.

Friday, May 16, 2014


My eyes are still tired.  My parents had a funeral today, so my dad was still home when I got up.  Got 83% on my first math quiz though.
Also got my english stuff done. The 3350 homework that is.
Then I had my interview, which was a 45 minute drive, but that was to the main office, not where I'd be working.  If I get the job that is.
Helped my parents get my brother's car back so he's not calling them at 11 for a ride.  My sister is really sore...

There is a kind of rainbow ring around the sun right now-or at least two hours ago there was.  Got a picture on my phone, but hurt my eyes a bit doing it.  Now clouds are moving in.  Wonder if sun rings mean anything the way moon rings do...
Couldn't find the event I was volunteering for, so I ended up coming back home. Sigh...

Day of the Triffids

An old book about the world going blind due to some kind of meteor shower thing and then getting swamped by beings called Triffids.  Think of venus fly traps standing over seven feet tall that have three roots and a couple of slender 'leaves' that rattle around the base of the stem.  These plants can uproot themselves at full growth and go for humans using a lethal 'sting' of venom they project for about three feet.  I'm reading the thing for english class.  Funny thing is, the teacher told me it was scary.  After watching World War Z-which is very similar save it's plants and blindness rather than zombies-its not that scary.  Definitely creepy though.
Have another interview, but it's quite a ways down south so I'm not too keen on the job.  Math quiz coming up...

Tuesday, May 13, 2014


Well, finally heard back from the art teacher about fall classes, but they would rather I take the prerequisite first.  They did ask why I want to take both, so there is still hope.
Math is on its way, got the online english done, just have the stuff for tomorrow to worry about. Sigh...

Mine seems like she overdid given the amount of siblings I have, but she managed us fairly well in my opinion.  Gave her two pictures of my niece for mothers day, though my sister and I are kidnapping her for a late gift tomorrow.
It was crazy windy last night, hope my grandma got home okay.  She and several of my dad's siblings came by for dinner yesterday.  Gram didn't want any pictures as she has her own coming.
Got my second youngest brother hooked on a song I heard at my brother's triathlon on saturday called Wave Your Flag.  He's playing it right now.  Fun song. My youngest brother competed with his young men's group and managed to finish rather well I think.
Got math today, and english due wednesday...
Interview tomorrow!

Very Tired Today.

Still have one assignment for monday to do, but I'm blank on that one.  Supposed to create two characters who find themselves on opposite spectrum's.  Say one just got a new job at the same time the other got fired.  Can only think of one character, and not sure where to go with that...

Gotta love cramps.  Couldn't sleep much last night thanks to that.  Raining still, really heavy this morning but it's tapered off now.

Thursday, May 8, 2014


Not a good idea to play them when you have other stuff to do. At least my homework isn't due til next week, so no rush, but I'd rather not get into a very bad habit at the start of the semester.

Oh, Good.

Found out that the texts I'd gotten for my cancelled class are the same for the fall one, so I can keep them.  Left in a bit of a hurry, and forgot my water bottle entirely.  Also left my homework on the printer.  My brother kindly brought it to me despite it making him late for job training.
Rain and hail so far today.  Hail actually stuck for a bit on the lawns and flowerbeds.  Made it cold again.

And so It Begins...Again

Yep, summer semester started today.  My literary genres teacher says they are giving us a lot of homework, but after last semester they are fairly moderate.  Brought a water bottle and promptly forgot it in my truck.  Classes were fun, given I had three classmates from last semester in this class.  One of my committee members was in my institute class.
Got home and my sister had misplaced her phone.  I found this out when I found it on the bathroom counter.  It's been a day for that...

Another One.

Yep, another weird dream last night.  This time I was doing some kind of 5k around my university with two backpacks-one regular and the other one of those rope strap bag type things-and then I had my mother's dog Indie under one arm with my cat Midnight under the other.  Then I let Midnight go and lost Indie and ran into my parents while looking for him.  And then my sister's dog Goob woke me up by whining because he was locked in a room by himself.

Got my photography grade.  That one was the expected A.  So my GPA is now a 2.74.  Keep getting these weird emails about winning a cash prize for something.
Had a weird dream yesterday morning and another this morning.  Yesterday's was a repeat I think, given I recognized the film story that provided the 'background' of the dream.  I was going to my aunt and uncles house-nearly got run over by my cousin walking up their driveway-and they had this movie on about a boy with a varsity jacket who has these tall plants-like from Jack the Giant Killer, only a lighter green and smaller leaves-grow all over his hometown.  The plants seem to come after him and in the end they 'catch' him as he goes up to four that have merged.
I'd don't remember much of today's though.

Thursday, May 1, 2014


My brother came home yesterday with bad news.  I don't have my photography final grade yet, and I'm not eligible for further financial aid.  figures.  I'm this close and running out of funds.  Might have to settle for more loans.  And finding a good job would be nice...
