It's been forever!

 A new semester, new classes. I've gotten through a month and a half of the semester. I'm dying! 

I love my classes, but the Disney meeting is November 4th, and auditions are November 8th. I'm dying! I'm dying! I'm nervous, and I'm dying!
I feel like I need to write something, since I haven't in a month. But, I seriously do not have anything life altering to say. :(

I'll come up with something later.

February is already off to a bad start.

I had A LOT of things to do this weekend. But, instead I had a garage sale.

I have two papers, two tests, three summaries, two quizzes, extensive recycling research, Spanish homework, some Political Science chapters (the size of novels) to read, a mountain of clothes to wash,  and an apartment to clean.

I made about 370 dollars, so I got some books. But, I will feel swamped for a while. Pray for me?


I will be going to Disney Spring 2010. ::blank stare::

That's all. 

I have big decisions to make.

My Blackberry vibrated the other day, I knew it was an e-mail. I got annoyed because I thought it would be another pointless e-mail from LSU. Nope! The Disney e-presentation is up. Yay! I've watched it only twice. The meeting in some time in March...I cannot wait.

I'll have to see when auditions are going to be. I was too excited, that I haven't looked at anything else.

I've survived my first week.

I have to take school week by week; maybe then will I get out alive. I have some hard classes.

Anyway, I am on a ringtone RAMPAGE! I have about 15 ringtones, I've gotten within an hour. Eesh!
And I have a new movie obsession, Moulin Rouge! Yay! 
So, today was my first day back at school.  It was alright. I had four classes back to back.

My first class was oceanography. It seemed to be a not so bad class. We went over the syllabus, and the professor explained a system of extra credit in the form of games. Like...games. He explained that one game will entail going outside and pretending to be a predator seeking its prey. The class started laughing. Seems a little juvenile for a college class, but if that will give me extra credit points, I'm all for it. We had about five minutes left of class, and I had another class (thankfully, in the same building). The professor decided to start a lesson anyway. He had about 20 slides left of his powerpoint to cover, and he did them all. I kept huffing and puffing because I was supposed to be out of the classroom and on to my next class, but he kept teaching. He wanted to finish the lesson, so he just taught extremely fast. He's Indian with a thick accent, so when he talked fast I couldn't really understand much of what he was saying. Hopefully this is the last time he decided to try to fit a lesson in five minutes.

Next was history. My favorite! I rushed over to my next class, totally leaving my friend behind. I felt terrible, but I had to get to class. There were close to no seats left! I had to sit at an angle where there was a huge projector in my view. Not cool. My teacher explained the syllabus, as usual. I was worried about the amount of books required for the class (eight!), but it turns out that we have to write two out of three essays either on the books provided or a designated MOVIE! And the movies aren't boring documentaries. They are actual, legitmate movies! That makes me feel better. I just saved about fifty dollars. I have the same teaching assistant that I had for my last history class. And she was a tough grader. Yikesssss! And we didn't have essays to write in my last history class. Hopefully, I can do well.

Fortunately me for, my political science class was in the same room as history was. I hated my seat, so when history was over, I just moved to a much better seat. We waited for about 25 minutes. I read some of my book. The professor came is. He seemed really down to earth. He didn't have his syllabus with him. He explained that his day job is an analyst at the Capitol, so he will be late sometimes to class. So, he makes mega money working for the government, and then more money working as a college professor. Whoa! It seems like an ok class. I'm not all too interested in the anatomy of politics. Just as long as I know the basics and what presidents stand for, I'm good.

I had extra time, so I ate some lunch. I  have decided to make lunch. It's much better than wasting money of fast food that will go right to my thighs ands hips. I made me a sammichhhh and also had a banana. A light lunch, but just enough to keep me satisfied.

Spanish was next. I always worry about Spanish. I've had 8 years of Spanish, and I still cannot gain a shred of knowledge. I can tell you any vocabulary word and give you short, basic sentences, but don't ask me to say a whole paragraph in subjunctive form. Can't do it! My professor is funny. It made me relax a little bit. He understood that some of us are a little rusty when it comes to a foreign language. He went over the syllabus, showed us some helpful sites, and then showed a cute little Spanish movie. I think I will do alright, I just have to go to class.

I went home, relaxed a little bit, and then I hit the gym. I really wanted to sign up for the dancing class this semester and spots fill up fast, but I got one, so it's all good! I worked out a little bit, and then signed up for a ab workout class. I was looking forward to it, but was a little disappointed. I thought it would last an hour, like all other GroupX classes do, but it only lasted thirty minutes. I felt like we didn't much ab workout. I'll find out tomorrow if I feel the burn or not. GroupX classes are free and people can sign up for them thirty minutes before they start. They have a wider selection than the specialty classes (which is what my dance class is). I'm going to try to take one class each day. I'll try to do different ones so I can vary it up a bit. I'll have to see which ones are being offered tomorrow, but they have a hip hop class on Friday and I am uber excited about! I don't think I'll take one when dancing starts. Those classes are on Wednesdays. That will be my class. 

Alright, I'm here. I might as well cook dinner or something. I have no homework, and I definitely do not want to spend all my time on the computer tonight. I have been having major difference in my sleep cycle. I guess holidays do that to you. I wouldn't go to sleep until 6 AM and then I would wake up at 3 PM. On Saturday, I took a nap and woke up around 10 PM. I decided to just stay up for the rest of the night and all of Sunday so I could get my sleep schedule back in order. Well, what do you know, I was sleeping like a baby when I got in bed at 11 PM. I woke up today around 6:40 AM, and I was totally refreshed.

Alright, I sha

School starts Monday. I'm excited. I usually always get excited when I start new semesters. New classes, new teachers, new $100 books. Luckily for me, I moved most of my stuff back up to Baton Rouge a couple weeks ago. That way, I won't be making 23 trips to my car, going back and forth. I'm leaving tomorrow, but I feel like I still have so much to do.

My Spanish teacher emailed the class the syllabus. It's 12 pages. TWELVE!! But it's okay, I research my professors, and everyone who commented on him said that he was funny and very helpful. And from what I've heard from my friend, my English professor is amazing. She listed The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People as one of our required books. I read The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens, and was really good. So, that's good. My oceanography class has a required textbook that costs $200. This is why Amazon and eBay have become my best friends recently. I found a $100 book on Amazon for $15, and it was NEW!

On Monday, I have to register for dance classes early, because it's first come first serve. So, hopefully I wake up early enough to do that. I didn't realize that my school gym is closed at 11. During my freshman year, it would close at 9. That makes me excited because then they won't be rushing me out the door while I'm trying to watch the last of Grey's Anatomy. It opens at 5:45 now. It use to open at 9, which is cool because I can do a morning workout, shower (they have showers there), and walk to my next class. And then on Tuesday, I believe the cheerleaders and the Tigergirls are doing a rehearsal performance. I love watching anything associated with dance. I went to a Tigergirl rehearsal last semester, and they were fabulous!

In Disney news, I have made flash cards with interview questions on them and answers on the back. I've been having more conversations with my mom about Disney, about the benefits, the work, the training, the apartments. She seems just as excited as I am. Once I told her that she could go for 6 days free and have a hotel room for 40% off, she was sold. Now, all I have to do is wait for the school presentation. I have no idea when that will be, but I'm sure it'll be sometime in February. I wish the WDWCP website would post the presentation again. I'm going nuts! I've subscribed to the site, so when new news is available, I'll be the first to get it.

Alright, it's 10, and I don't think I've done a stitch of packing yet. I shall write sometime later. Ciao!


I just cleaned out my parents freezer AND pantry. I should get a medal.

And I should compete for the most items past their expirations dates!

Is it weird that...

I go to every Disney College Program presentation on campus, and then watch the e-presentation like once a month? Mind you, I've been doing this for almost two years now.

I need me a turkey leg and a lap or two on the Great Movie Ride!
