Happy Thanksgiving!!

Hello to all you lovely people, I hope you had a great Holiday weekend and ate tons and tons of food. My Thanksgiving wasn’t the best I’ve had, but I was thankful to spend it with my family and have some piece and quiet. My mom even asked me if I was going to see my friends from home at all and to be honest I do love them, but being able to be away from the 9 roommates I am around all the time was so nice. I can probably speak for all of us saying we needed that break.

For Thanksgiving, I went to my dad’s side for a couple hours then to my mom’s side to eat. My brother and I drove up separate than my mom and step dad because, we had to go to my real dad’s side and left early. I love seeing them, they are the sweetest and of course always offer candy and food. I really wish I was able to swing by more, but I live too far away for that. Usually we spend our Thanksgiving at our Florida home with just our intimate family but, due to my brother having to ride in the rodeo finals we stayed up north this year.

I am headed into finals week next week, that means you won’t here from me till after my trip to NYC, so a little after Christmas. I hope you all crush those finals and have a GREAT CHRISTMAS!!!

XOXO

Oh October…

Sorry I forgot to post yesterday, but I had a major stats test that I had to study for. That test totally killed me and I studied for 5 hours straight in the library, and I have friends that can confirm it. This class will be the death of me, I even told my mom that if my test goes horrible I am dropping this class.

I have contemplated talking to the dean because, I am trying my hardest and none of us finished on time. Hell no, that’s not our fault, thats his. I am just so done with unfair and unreasonable professors.

On a happier note, Florida was amazing and much needed. I got drunk everyday in the pool, and one day I was so drunk at supper I don’t even remember going… Freaking cheers to that! We went out on the boat the last full day we were there and it was so hot I burnt the shit out of myself. I didn’t realize it then, till now because I am peeling like a MOFO. I can’t wait to go back, we usually do every Thanksgiving but this year we won’t be able to make it. That means my next vacay is spring break which means…. MEXICO!!! We have quite a group going this year, so bless up.

This past week has been kind of hellish for me, with that stats homework being due on Monday of break, and then the test today (Tuesday 17th). You can say I was stressed and still am because of it. I have two tests this week, two tests next week and had a test last Friday. It has been the literal worst. Just need some prayers to make it through TBH.

Last night after I spent 5 hours studying, I was about brained out. That mean it was time for a jam sesh. I drove with my friend for like an hour jamming out, then my other friend and her friend came over and we had a 3 hour dance party in my room with my roommates. What a time to be alive!

Also next weekend is my 21st birthday weekend so maybe send a few prayers for the hangover.. and be ready for the stories… if I remember!

Have a great week!

Fall Break 2017

This week was a little eventful to say the least!

It was the week I was leaving for Florida and I wanted to get most of my homework done before, because who wants to do homework on vacation? No one.

Monday was a busy day for me, I was trying to get that dreadful stats homework done, it is currently Friday and it still isn’t finished. Bless me.

The guy in my stats class sits in front of me noticed that I had skipped Tuesday (for a valid reason, a migraine). He was like “we missed you Tuesday” and I was like oops sorry, but not really. Then he told me better news, that our assignment deadline got moved from Saturday to Monday, which is amazing. Granted I have like only three questions left to do.

On Wednesday, my friend Korryn came up to work beer pong at this bar downtown, and it gets over at like 2:30am so she stayed at my house. I didn’t hear her come in thank God because, I had lab at 9am Thursday morning. I had finished my lab assignment prior so all I had to do was drop it off and leave, which I did. I got to lab like five minutes late though. Then went to the tutor center in hopes of getting help with this fricken stats homework. The tutor didn’t show up till 10am when she was supposed to be there at 9. I was a little annoyed but she helped me as much as she could before class at 11. Then went to class, struggled per usual, and then went home.

Korryn was still there when I got home which was like 12:30pm. I was crabby because, of stats but I was trying to be calm and she wasn’t helping but it was fine. She filled me in though that she was going to go get coffee with this wrestler, which isn’t surprising because she likes wrestlers. She left and I pounded out two quizzes, finished packing, showered, and had Brooke come get me so we could head to her house.

We left at like 2pm so we wouldn’t hit traffic and so we could get our nails done. The lady that did my nails like filed them off, it hurt so bad. They also don’t look the best, granted I did only pay $21. After that I had to take another quiz because, it wasn’t open till 5pm. How annoying is that? Whatever.

While I was getting ready to take my quiz korryn calls, and these phone calls are always interesting because you don’t know what she is going to say. Well it was to update me on her little date that was supposed to be coffee. Turns out she ended up going to his house and getting pizza and pop, then proceeds to have sex with him twice…. I was and wasn’t shocked. She said he was just like her but in guy form, which can be scary. But I think she actually likes him because, she was super about him and usually she isn’t about the guy after they sleep together. You know those girls that use their sign and compare it to a guy’s? Well that was her… she goes, “Marissa, the best part is… we are both Scorpio’s” What do I say to that? Congrats?

So anyways, that was awesome.

My friend Jenni got a call from her mom and her mom said she had a weird thing on her face biopsied. There is a chance it could be cancer, but we are praying it isn’t. When she called, she was a wreck, as expected, and I felt so bad because I was home to go sit with her. Any prayers for her mom is wanted and appreciated.

I am currently on the plane avoiding homework, and people. I have a lil horror story for you. Me being me had to get a chai before we boarded the flight because I was up at 6:15am and this bitch isn’t about it. All was good, just letting it cool as we boarded. I am to my seat with it in my hand and go to set down my bag and I don’t know what happened but I spilt it all over myself and the gentlemen that was sitting right across from me. You could say I wanted to go hide and felt awful. I hate myself every second of this flight dammit. So today is off to a great start..

I just can’t with being on this plane anymore because of it. I couldn’t really do anything either because everyone was boarding behind me. FML for real.

Florida ain’t even ready for this shit show let me tell you.

In my next blog I’ll talk about my Florida trip! Here’s a few pictures till then!

Graduation Weekend

I can honestly say I am so glad this weekend is finally over. Some people actually enjoy graduation weekend, but being a graduate and a graduates sibling is kinda close to being in hell; if you ask me.

Last week I put off baking two-hundred cupcakes, yes 200 cupcakes. Mini and normal size, which I also had to decorate. The mini ones were grass, and the normal size cupcakes were baseballs… Yeah it took over my life for two whole days, which is why I will never eat a cupcake again (that’s a lie). I had to call my cousin and her friend to come help this sister out. They took over on making the baseballs and the chocolate covered strawberries; which were a major hit.

The party seemed to never end, well it did at like midnight but it felt like it drug on forever. I was surprised at how well my brother handled it, he wasn’t too thrilled to have to stand and greet people for four hours (can you blame him?). I was glad that a lot of people he invited showed up, he also was very happy about that. Coaches, teachers, friends, family, lake friends, just everyone who showed up deserves a huge thank you. To those who couldn’t make it, thank you for the cards you sent.

There was one gift that really stood out to my brother and I, it was something of my dad’s that he received. One of my dads really good friends came to Brock’s graduation which was really nice of him. He gave Brock a card, but he also gave Brock gifts he received from being a pallbarer at my dads funeral. It was my dad’s money clip with his name engrave on it, and the hat my dad wore to work. It wasn’t a gift we expected, but we are thrilled he thought that Brock could now have a gift he was given. I am so thankful for the great people who are still in our lives even after we lost our father, it means so much to get gifts like that and to still hear stories. We still grieve everyday because, you never stop grieving and gifts like this help. We still learn about our father we had such a short time with, and we can’t be more thankful for that. So a huge thank you to Torgy for giving Brock such an amazing gift he will cherish for forever.

This weekend was great and I am so thankful for it all, now on to sub-section, section, and state baseball. Go Greyhounds!

The Greyhounds played their first game at BSU against Lake of the Woods, and got a win over them. That advanced them to play Black Duck, which they swept to become the sub-section champs. They play again on Thursday for sections. (I am bundled up because it was 40 degrees and wind).

I’m sorry I didn’t get my blog out last week on Thursday… My brother’s team won by one run, and an amazing catch that a freshmen made! They play this week ( June 5th) to see if they’re heading to state! Updates to come!

XOXO
