Dishwashing by Fire.

Today is Monday. Need I say more? Actually, I do. I had all my classes today, it's always my hard day. But I do enjoy school, so it isn't too much of a drag. and p.s. I get to see this boy in my English class every other day. :)

It was also the second day at the office. I love it there. My boss is hilarious, she reminds me of my Grandma. I was re-typing a paper for her and the phone rang. Frances picked up the phone and was talking for a second when I heard her say to her husband, "Honey, the dishwasher in 1137 is smoking." I immediately stopped typing and looked at her. 1137 is my apartment! I automatically jumped to conclusions and thought that the whole building was burning down. Even with this thought, I just started to laugh. Once everything was justified that the apartment was in tact, I went back to work.

At five thirty, I headed back to my room and the second I opened the door, I was almost knocked over by the stench of smoke. I would have thought that the dishwasher was spouting flames. I stood there and started laughing again. I realize that most of my life is spent laughing and sleeping. Two very healthy things if you ask me...and anyone else.

Oh! and listen, I turned my paper on the Iliad in today! boo-yah! Life is goo-hood.

Just call me Xena-Warrior Princess!

I'm at home right now. It feels good to come back on the weekends and just relax. Since I don't feel like I live here anymore, it's like I am on vacation. On the downside of this, I feel like I don't need to do my homework. Then I get back to my apartment at 10 o'clock and realize I have six hours of crap I need to do for the next day. So I am in the process of trying to get that Iliad paper done. (Yes, the one that I was supposed to turn in on Friday.)

I went on a date on Friday with my cousin's roommate, and I set my cousin up with Kayleigh. It was a blast. I haven't laughed so much since...well, Thursday, but still. We laughed a lot! I kicked trash at bowling. I dare anyone to challenge me to two games of bowling. You will probably destroy me the first time, but watch out for game two! Maybe it wasn't my skill at all. My date chose my bowling name for me on the second game. I was Xena Warrior Princess. Hard core huh? In fact, I am almost positive that is the only reason I did so good.

Is Patroclus a woman?

Today has been absolutely stellar. I got a job working in the office at my apartment! I am so stoked on life right now. My whole day has been so funny, not funny in like "why did that happen? That's funny..." It's as in "Oh my gosh find me a bathroom, I'm going to pee my pants because I can't stop laughing!" My other roommate Mandy and I got laughing so hard at random things that have happened throughout our time living together. Like when she barely moved in the apartment and I was in my room talking to Jenessa and I heard a loud noise that sounded like someone hitting the counter (it turned out that it was from the t.v.) and then she started to cough, it registered in my head that Mandy was choking! I stopped in mid-sentence and with a horrified look on my face I yelled, "SHE'S CHOKING!" I ran into the kitchen looking frantically for Mandy. She was standing by the fridge (out of my line of vision, so I assumed she was on the ground) and I spun around with my mind going a million miles an hour and then I saw her just standing there. She was holding her bowl of food with a slightly freaked out expression on her face and she asked me if I was ok and I was like, "yeah...are YOU ok?" She nodded slowly and I realized everything was alright and walked sheepishly back to my room.

That is just a glimpse of my life here. Orem, Utah. Who would have thought you could be so much fun. I am in the middle of trying to write a thesis paper about the Iliad. I have six pages already, only four to go! And here I sit broken hearted...I paid to poop, but I only farted. ha...ha...sorry, my dad use to say that to me all the time. Anyways, if anyone wants to write this paper for me, I will be forever in your debt. I already tried to trade homework with Kayleigh, but she said no. Granted I wouldn't be able to do her physics homework either. Wow. I am goo-hood at this whole college thing.

I know I need to get it finished or my teacher might throw his coffee at me. haha I love my Ancient Legacies professor. He is tough, but very nice. All I have to do is tell him I have a stupid question and he will be like, "No! No question you have is ever stupid. Don't ever say that." One day I want to say, "I have a dumb question..." Wait for him to go on his schpill, and then say, "Was Patroclus really a woman pretending to be a man?" See what he says about that. Muahahaha Ok, I really have to get back to this paper.

RIP you stupid little fish

This is wonderful! Now I am not going to be able to go to bed. I am just having too much fun with this blog.

So let me tell you about the traumatic even of the day... Our pet beta fish kamikazied today. First of all, I hated that fish with a burning passion of a thousand suns, don't ask why, we had a falling out and that's all you need to know. Anyways, I was the only one who fed her, without me, she would not have lived as long as she did. Whenever someone would clean her cage and fill the water up to the top I would say, "One day, she is just going to jump out." and nobody believed me. So today, I woke up and walked into the kitchen and went to the counter to feed her and I looked in the cage and I couldn't see her. I thought it might just be the odd shape of the vase she was in, but after another 3 seconds of searching, I realized Breanna was MIA. I looked in the sink right next to her cage, and there lay Breanna, all dry and shriveled. It was actually a quite disturbing sight. And as much as I didn't like her alive, I didn't like seeing her like that in the sink, so I made Nancy come and get her out and flush her. So, with her passing, I prepared a poem in her memory.

Breanna was a fish, Who jumped out of her dish. I found her dead next to her bowl, All dried up without a soul. I would like to say, That we will miss her in every way. But really... We won't. Godspeed Breanna.

haha just kidding!

I decided to take the picture off of me and my roommate. Maybe one day I'll figure out how to get it back up there.

I'm trying again...

OK, so I tried the whole blog thing a couple months ago and things didn't exactly go as planned. I do enjoy looking at my BFF's blog though. It makes me insanely jealous and wish my blog was as cool as hers. So, I decided to retry with a new blog...didn't go so well, after that failure, I decided to come back to this one. And YAY!, I figured out how to get a picture on it. It is of my roommate and me after she cut my hair. Good day. And whoa, I just got that picture to show up! ---> wow, I am legit. :) This might actually work out.

Wish me luck, I hope I can stick with this and get detached from Facebook because its getting a bit out of hand.
