Exam number 1…complete!

Just finished my Astronomy exam about 45 minutes ago. I have to say, I’m confident that I did well on it. As for the rest of exam time…

I have a 3000 word paper due Monday that I submit online for my WRT 201 course. I have a Psychology exam Monday morning, a Calculus exam Tuesday night, and my last exam, Gender & Women’s Studies, Thursday morning. I can’t wait until it’s all done! Thursday, I am going to see The Hobbit after I finish my exam with my best friend who is coming home from Pittsburgh (she goes to Point Park) this weekend!!!! I’m so excited! The Hobbit is my light at the end of the tunnel.

Another thing I am looking forward to: What will happen December 21, 2012? I don’t believe the world’s going to end, but it is going to be interesting to see how society reacts on that day and if anything major (but not major enought to cause the world to end) will occur. All I know, is that December 21 means that there’s FOUR MORE DAYS UNTIL LES MISERABLES! I am EXTREMELY excited for this film. I am trying to persuade my dad to let me go see it Christmas night, but as of now, it has not worked. I am going to try to see it ASAP.

In other big blockbuster movie news, I finally was able to watch The Dark Knight Rises. It. Was. Amazing. Incredible acting, incredible cinematography, incredible set design, incredible everything! And, I have to admit, I sobbed like a baby when I thought Bruce Wayne/Batman died. Then I smiled like a child in a candy store when it turned out that he was actually alive. Great, great movie.

So, anyways, I’m definitely losing sleep from studying for exams and whatnot. When I’m under stress like this I don’t usually express it by becoming a bit “crazy” like some of my friends have. I just feel extremely tired. Oh, how I can’t wait until I can sleep in! Any other college students feeling the stress? Comment about how you deal with it, and how you prepare for your exams in order to do well. Others might like the advise!

Also, I have an announcement! Is anyone interested in going to NYC from Providence from Jan. 9-Jan. 14? I have a reservation number for 3 bus seats on Megabus, roundtrip, that I am selling. Obviously, it will only work for you if you live in Rhode Island. However, if you are interested, or know someone who might be, let me know! Comment on this post with your email, name, and if you’re from RI or not (I will not approve the comment so others can’t see it), and I will send you a message with all the information about the tickets and how much I’m selling them for (which will be a lot less than you will find anywhere online).

Thank you everyone and good luck to those taking exams!

It’s finally December! Let’s reward you with 60 degree weather!

Hello everyone! I’ve been busy lately, so that is why I haven’t posted in a while. A while in my opinion is a week. Which may not be a while for some people. Anyways, I have had a lot of work for school, as this is the last week of my first semester of college!! *GASP* It went by so fast! It’s cray cray. Finals are within the next two weeks. I have one next week and three the following week. 

This weekend I worked two ten-hour shifts (I work at KFC), so now my feet are in pain. It hurts to walk. And I have irritation from the straps of my sports bra since I wore it for such a long time, so now i have four red lines on my shoulders. Yay me! At least I’ll be getting more moolah on my next pay check! 

So, December in Rhode Island has been weird, weather-wise. Any month in Rhode Island can be weird. But, December…it’s supposed to be thirty degrees and snowing! But, nope! It’s frickin’ 60 degrees out!! As much as I love the warmth and the bright sun, I want snow. Because it is supposed to snow in December. It was FREEZING last week. But then, Sunday, the weather decided to have a mood swing. I’m not a big fan of the cold, but I WANT SNOW! 

In other December news, I got my Christmas tree for my mom’s house!! I haven’t had the time to decorate it yet, but I will soon! I’m getting the tree for my dad’s house this weekend. I go to this tree place called Stop & Chop that I have been going to since I can remember. I always say hi to the owner’s kitty, who likes to sleep in the rafters of the little cabin-like building that holds the ornaments and wreaths. I also get free hot cocao and hot apple cider. I usually get hot cocao, but this past weekend I opted for cider. 

I hope everyone is having a nice December elsewhere in the country and world! Anyone have plans for their winter break? I do! The first couple weeks I’ll be sleeping and watching How I Met Your Mother, which I’m trying to catch up on so I can figure out who in the hell the mother is! Then, I’m going to NYC for a week with my friends in January! Well, time to go to calculus…(yuck).
