Christmas 05

Our Christmas Tree
Christmas was yesterday and it went very well :) Lots of presents and lots of food! One really cool gift I got a little early was this huge roll of canvas from my mom. The roll is about 55 feet long and a little over a yard wide. It's really exciting because this is going to save me a bunch of money! On Christmas my mom also gave me this big thing of gesso and a cool paint brush holder. I love to paint so this gift really made me happy!

All the stars have disappeared, what will you do!? There's only one thing TO do... Roll a ball around and picking up various objects that will in turn, replace the stars and constelations. You can pick up things such pineapples, giant squid and sailboats, it just depends on how large your katamari is :) Now doesn't that sound like fun?

Thanks to nikki and shanno, I now have been introduced to one of the coolest games ever...

The Nutcracker

Mom comes into my room this morning and the first thing she tells me is that the weather is bad so we can't drive to Kansas City. Upsetting? Yes... I was very sad :( Today me and mom were supposed to go see the Nutcracker in KC and those tickets were NONrefundable. Well mom was right, we got about 5 inches of snow and the roads are STILL pretty bad. This story isn't all bad though... in fact... it has a great ending! Turns out that The Nutcracker was also playing here in Wichita! Things went our way and we ended up getting to see it anyway! I had a wonderful time and I could tell that mom was REALLY enjoying herself! It makes me so happy to see her smile :)

As for the finals update... they're over for now :) yay! I didnt do as well as I was hoping on some of them, and as for the others, I havent gotten the results back yet! I can tell you one thing though, I am VERY happy that it is Christmas Break time! Woo Hoo!

Another awesome thing that happened today was that mommy bought me a winter jacket! I am MO excited about that one! I needed a jacket badly and it's gettin perty cold out there! My little walks to class were NOT enjoyed at all! THANKS MOM... your the best!

We Found Santa!

Jess, Jen, and I went out one last time this semester as a break from studyin. We took longer getting ready than we did actually staying out.

Honestly, we just wanted to get out of the dorms! I had been studying almost all day long so it was a nice, short little break. Upon our adventures about town, we found Santa! He was a good sport and let us take a picture with him! He even had lollipops to give out... it was pretty exciting! (and yes... it's lollipop, not sucker)

Merry Christmas to all!


Well the time has come. This week is finals. I don't feel completely prepared for any of them, and that really scares me. I like to feel ready for tests, and these are really important tests. It makes me nervous.

I finished watching all the episodes of Sex in the City today. While I was packing I watched the very last episode; it was intense. Ironic how I have been watching the whole season through out the semester, and now that the season is over, I am packing to go home.

No more nasty community bathrooms. No more cafeteria food (even tho it really wasn't that bad). No more small cubby hole that I live in. But sadly, no more Michelle, Lane, and Margo :( I'm going to miss my lovely roomates! Lane is going back to Cali, so Lane... I only wish you the best! I am SURE that you will be successful and have a wonderful life! I love you and DO NOT forget me!

My new home :)

Here's my home next semester! YAY!!
Since the dorms ended up costing us more than we were expecting, my mom and I began thinking about alternate housing plans. At first, me and 4 other girls were looking at a house to rent out for 6 months, but that was a flop. The bad thing was that all those girls (not me) had already handed in their contract cancelation papers. Most of those girls are going back to get their contracts back, but Jessica and I were still looking into alternate housing. WELL... yesterday we went apartment shopping and we found just what we wanted for even cheaper than the house!!

It's really really cute and really spacious! The kinda neat thing is that its a 4 bedroom 2 bathroom apartment but only the 2 of us are going to live in it. We pay what we would be paying if there were 4 of us and the landowners just lock 2 of the bedrooms... so its basically a 2 bedroom apartment! Here's the floorplan of the apartment! Another cool thing about the apartment is that its fully furnished! Washer, drier, FULL beds, livingroom set... its all there. There isnt even a gas bill.... AND.... extended cable COMES with the apartment.. that means I get HBO. I dont even get HBO at home!

So to sum it all up... I'm pretty freaking excited :D yay!
