As I'm avoiding all things school-related, I decided to blog, instead..
No work, no school.. My to do list said I was supposed to finish a ten page paper, write an extra credit essay, put together a small PowerPoint and email it to my professor, and write some kind of small final paper for my Ethics class. PLUS study for both my Nutrition and Sociology finals AND start (and finish) an academic resume from scratch. Basically none of that happened.. So I thought I'd have better luck the next day..
I thought maybe I'd work on my homework which I was behind on (but not TOO behind that it's impossible..), and then head up to Sandy and do a little Christmas shopping before heading up to Syracuse and then to Ogden for a wedding.. I did NOT do my homework, did NOT do any Christmas shopping.. I picked up the lovely Katy Hunter and we headed to the wedding about half way through the reception.. It was all beautiful! CONGRATS Mr. and Mrs. Brandon and Lindsea Garside! :D After that, it was a little Denny's, Inception, Glee, 4-am-Cake-Making kind of night.. And it was wonderful :)
Then today.. Craziest morning of my life! Warning: When you stay up until almost 6 in the morning making delicious chocolate cakes and reminiscing with some of the greatest people on earth, you may have the tendency to sleep in until noon. Worth it? I think so. When we finally did wake up, I realized I needed to go home and get ready for a mission farewell which was supposed to be at 2:45.. Even with a total of 45 minutes driving-time, I should have had MORE than enough time.. Right??.. If you thought that, you'd be wrong. Mid-drive between Riverdale and Syracuse, I realized my key is broken and I would be locked out of the house because the fam damily was at church.. After a bunch of unanswered phone calls from everyone I could think of who could possibly get me into the house (or at least into a shower!), driving back and forth between Layton and Syracuse twice, checking all doors and windows for ANYTHING unlocked, AND driving to the church (in my pajamas, btw) to see if there was a garage door opener in my mom's car, I sat in the driveway and put a dress on while in my car (really quite typical of me.. I seem to change in the car more than the average human being), and I walked into the church and finally got a key. After all the drama, I TOOK A SHOWER! Greatest moment of my life. And I walked into the church building for Teague's farewell about 5.7 seconds before he began speaking. Good job and best of luck, Elder Sorensen! :D
I've watched a bunch of Lost episodes and tried to do homework but I've come to the conclusion that Lost marathons, Facebook, and homework before finals week just don't work well together.. So right now, Lost is shut off and I have the John Mayer Pandora station playing in the background.. I honestly sat down to do some major studying before my 7 am Sociology final in the morning, before I realized I have no idea where my study papers are that explain what's on the test. So now I am sitting on the floor surrounded by notebooks, papers, textbooks, and binders, and somehow I ended up writing this dumb post instead.
Thank you, Awkward Family Photos, for making me feel better about myself.. Poor girl with the star on her head, I kind of feel bad for her.. Well. Merry Christmas, ya'll.
On the plus side, it's been a great (nonproductive) weekend. :D
