sometimes I wonder how an intended 5 minute phone call can turn into a 2 hour phone call.

I couple of nights ago I sat in the bathroom and watched a roach die, and I thought to myself "those things have super long antennas".
that reminds me of mom walking around the house with the little antlers on her head and being bothered by running into things a lot. I guess roaches just get used to those long things attached to their head. that must be strange.

Everything is getting better now. One of my teachers came and apologized to me for being rude (which was a great cause of my not so good day). And I finally got my bed lofted.
I was a little afraid to sleep way up high because the bed could fall, or I could fall. but all went well, or at least until 2:34 A.M. We had a fire drill and somehow I woke up and climbed down from my bed in the dark and went outside, then when I got back to my room I couldn't even remember getting out of bed. It was the strangest thing.
I seem to be forgetting a lot of things these days. Yesterday I called mom and 3 minutes later she called me back and I couldn't remember why I had called her in the first place. She said I wasn't old enough to do that, but I think it's just the first week of school and my head is to full of things I need to know already.

RA things are going well, all of the girls on my hall are extremely sweet and always wanting to talk. One girl named Monquie comes and will stand in my doorway or just come in a sit down and talk for a long time, or just stand there and watch me do whatever I'm doing. She makes me laugh a lot. The majority of girls on my hall are black, and then there are only two other white girls besides me. So far everything has gone well, and I am looking forward to the rest of the semester (as of right now at least).

Monday, January 7, 2008 could be raining.

first day of class was a big crash and burn.
but it could be worse.

on all the doors the girls have the little rockets with their name on it. :0) yay.

New Experiences

I am now at the end of day 2 of being an RA. The first night was horrific. I got in bed around 1 and then probably ended up only sleeping a total of 3 or 4 hours. I was woken up super early by a phone call. sat through 4 hours of a lady talking about nothing. ate greasy pizza. moved furniture for another RA. went to Johny Rockets for dinner (delicious) --Laura, it was a double meat burger. I felt like I ate an entire cow!-- came back to school and worked on cut-outs for the girls rooms for 2 hours. went to wal-mart and forgot the 2 major things I went for. went to get a shower and come to find only one stall works. the whole bathroom is sketchy looking because there is a light out, and that is creepy because of the darkness. I took a 5 minute ice cold shower and ran back to my room shaking because I was so cold. worked on name cards for the doors...and now I am sitting here. 12:33 a.m. I don't want to get in bed because I know I won't be able to sleep.
I decided last night that being in this huge building alone is like a really bad joke. it reminds me of those people who get paid to go stay a night in some creepy place alone. maybe my lack of sleep is due to being in a new room on a hall...alone... either way, I can't sleep now.
School will be starting on monday and I am interested to see what these classes will be like. As of right now I am enrolled in 3-D Design, Spanish 200 (two semesters in one), printmaking, Art History (The hardest class at Montevallo), health and wellness, so in total it is 17 hours. I am pretty nervous about the spanish class just because I am skipping a semester, and it is so fast paced. I am also a little nervous about the art history. from what I've heard, not many people make it out with an A. I guess I will just be working a lot.
enough of this worrying though. I'm moving on to better things.
