A Boring College Student

It is true, I am simply a boring college student. Which is pretty much why I haven't put up a post in a while. I have nothing very exciting to talk about. My days are all pretty similar. I wake up and go to school. After my classes I go home and eat lunch. Then I take my roommate Sandra to her afternoon class. Then I take her home from that. Then we do homework for a while. Then in the evenings I either hang out with Ross, read, hang out on facebook, play pocket tanks, or watch a movie with Sandra. Evenings are about the only time that my life has variety. And that is why I put a picture of a sunset here. Party! Oh, and I like Tuesdays, which are date days for me and Ross. We make sure to go on a date every Tuesday. Woot.
So I guess my life isn't completely dull, I did get to go to Lagoon last weekend. That was really fun. I went with Ross, naturally, and my cousins and their lovers. Oh, and a girl named Cammie who was on a date with a guy named Mike. I didn't know them. But it was really fun. I like hanging out with Alison and Greg. And Stacey, who comes with Greg. And Ren, who comes with Alison. It was a lot of fun. We didn't go into any of the spook alleys which was probably a good thing because I might have peed my pants, as I did many years ago with Laurianne. She was awesome. Anyway, it was super duper fun! My favorite ride is probably Wicked. I didn't like it the first time I went on it a year or so ago, but now I like it. I like that it is actually a smooth roller coaster, unlike pretty much all the rest of the roller coasters at Lagoon. And there's a picture of it. Ross totally loved that ride. He was shouting that during our roller coaster adventure on it. What a fun outing! And the next morning Daniel and Ross had a rubber band war. I'm so happy my boyfriend gets along so well with my youngest brother. Woot.
This past weekend I got to go home for Fall Break. It was awesome. I really like spending time with my family. I came down this past Thursday night and stayed until Saturday evening. Friday was pretty great. Mom, Sarah, and I went out for lunch. We had Chinese food. I sure do love that stuff. It was really nice to spend time with my mom and older sister. I like those guys. After that Mom and I went fabric shopping with my Gramma. She's awesome. Sarah came to say hi before returning to her husband, and Gramma said that she wants great-grandkids from us so we should "get crackin'." Sheesh. I picked out some beautiful blue and brown fabric for a quilt that Gramma wants to make for me. I sure do love fabric shopping. I'm so indecisive though, so it took a while. But it was still fun. And of course, there's a picture of fabric.
That afternoon, I took my two youngest siblings to a movie. Technically, I just drove and made them pay for themselves. Life is expensive! But it was fun. We went to see the movie 9. It is by Tim Burton. It was a pretty good movie, not as good as I thought it would be. I think that it was a clever concept, but a lot more could be done with it. Daniel didn't get scared, even though it was PG-13, and Leslie thought it was really cool. It was only and hour and 10 or so minutes, which was kind of nuts. All the sudden it was just over. But whatever. I still enjoyed it. Mostly I just liked Elijah Wood's voice coming out of the main character, but that is unimportant. I have a crush on Elijah Wood. Anyway.....
In the evening of Friday, I was also able to talk with my parents about my future. That's always scary. It's hard to talk my parents because I never know how they will react. But I survived. Phew! And then I played Battleship with Leslie! She won once and I won once. And then I was tired so I went to bed. Party. The picture of battleship is to show the game Leslie and I played, as well as to symbolize how sometimes talking with parents is a battle. ;)
Saturday was pretty interesting. My family all went over to the Fassmann's house, Sarah's in-laws. We made homemade apple juice! It was pretty fun, but I also had homework to work on there. Lame. And my hands got really sticky working the apple juicer. Bleck. But it tasted really yummy! Hooray for apple juice!
Monday night, Sandra and I watched a scary movie, When a Stranger Calls. She kept gasping really loud and that would make me jump a lot more than the movie. It was an ok movie. I don't know that I liked it much, but that may have had to do with that I couldn't sleep very well that night. I kept hearing, "We traced the call! It's coming from inside the house! It's coming from inside the house!" And then I couldn't sleep. It's too bad I get a thrill out of scary movies.
Yesterday was Date Day! I love Tuesdays because I get to spend a lot of time with Ross, and basically I'm totally in love with him. Oh, and he's totally in love with me, too. :) Yesterday we played nintendo and then carved pumpkins! I don't like the gooey insides of the pumpkins, but whatever, Ross loves that part. It was fun just to be together. In the picture, my pumpkin is on the left and Ross' is on the right. We made hamburger helper for dinner. It wasn't the best kind, but it was still good. I love hamburger helper! It is the best. Ross and I also just sat and talked for a long time. I really like that we can talk for so long together. It makes me happy to have someone like Ross in my life. He's my best friend!
Well, that's all for know. I've been trying to wait until there's something exciting happening to write about, but my life isn't necessarily the most exciting life on the planet. Oh, well. ;)
