I woke up at 6:30am and laid in bed taking care of my emails on my phone. I finally got up and washed my face, got dressed, did my makeup, all that good stuff. I gathered my stuff to bring to school and then went downstairs to find something to eat. I had about a quarter of a bowl of Kix and half a cup of coffee. Off to school I went, picking my soundtrack carefully to keep my attitude positive.

I arrived at school and changed to listening to the music on my earbuds instead of the stereo. No one was in the classroom yet when I came in so my usual place was more than open. I don't think anyone would be sitting there anyway. We are creatures of habit. I sat down and logged in, plugged in my two full jump-drives and got straight to work. My teacher came in eventually and I showed her what I had laid out for my  portfolio so far. She said it looked good and keep working. Class started at eight in the morning. I stayed in that classroom working on my portfolio for a few hours. I then ran (literally was speed walking) to the other end of the building to ask some questions about printing. Speed walked back and worked on changing things.
I had made a lot of progress when a strobe went off in the classroom. The siren soon followed and a voice was heard telling us to evacuate the building. I quickly dragged all of my work onto my jump-drive and a back up folder. I grabbed almost all of my stuff and stuffed it into my backpack, heading out of the building into the parking lot with the steady flow of students. It was sunny and I breathed in the fresh air as I went with a classmate to her car. I was majorly starting to freak out. What if the fire was real and it wasn't a drill? What if the computer that all of my work was on melted? There is no way that I can re-create all of that in two days. This can't be a real fire because I can't totally botch my portfolio! If this is just a drill that is so annoying. I don't have time for this! I was close to tears when they told us we could go back inside. Psh. Small heart attack no biggie. -_-
Anyway, I kept working on my portfolio. I finally unplugged the jump-drive I had bought at the bookstore and speed walked back to the graphic resource center where I print. We managed to print two whole pages of my portfolio. Out of 20. *sigh* I had to go home at 3. I went upstairs and turned on my computer, looked for my Personal Finance book to take my quiz. I couldn't find it so I just filled in random answers since it is hard enough to do with the book let alone without it. Overall I'm getting one percent short of a B. (I failed that quiz miserably.) I really need to find that book soon. After that I just kind of sat for a few minutes staring into space.
The only break I had taken in my seven hours of school-work was the fire drill. I had eaten the Kix from this morning and half of a Luna bar. A cup of coffee too but that was it. That plus the running from one end of the building to the other and the incredibly amount of stress had left me shaking. You wouldn't be able to tell looking at me or anything but I had failed to take care of myself really. I just didn't have enough time...
I ate the other half of the bar and took a half-shower. Grabbing a hunk of cheese, I got back into my truck and headed off to work.
Work was rough but not the worst it has been. I could have sworn that it was almost all new people working tonight though. My break food saved me. Amazingly enough we were done before 11pm (which is when we close) and so I was out of there by a decent time. I then came home and climbed into bed to check facebook and write this post.

Now I sleep interwebz

Going Home for Food and Family

   I have been at school since 12pm today and have been working on my schoolwork the whole time. I managed to finish my portfolio edits and lay out six pages of my final portfolio. I never would have thought that it would take so much time to put pictures of my artwork and small descriptions into a document.
    I am going home now though. My uncle is in town and my mom texted me to come home for dinner. Gladly. I technically haven't eaten a meal yet today. I woke up this morning and cleaned my bathroom, took a shower, and went to school. I have eaten two bars and drank a Vanilla Light Starbucks doubleshot Energy+Coffee Light drink. Healthy I know.

I'm off interwebz

Crazy Loco Life

Sorry I haven't been posting. I haven't really been reading the blogs I follow either. I just have a ton going on in my life right now and busy doesn't even seem to be able to describe it. I hope to be back to my once a day posts soon. We will have to see. For now we will have to make due with my highly sporatic ones. lol

I hope you are well interwebz

So I've been a little busy....

Lot's of stuff has been going on and I don't have enough time to tell you right now but here is the jist of it. I had an allergic reaction on Tuesday morning that worsened over two days. I have had two trips to the doctor and a total of 4 shots. I'm on heavy medication with incredibly annoying side effects that some people don't seem to understand and I have a ton of stuff to get done in just two days. Least to say it has been interesting.

I'm off to kill myself trying to get my homework done. Yes, I might be being a tad dramatic here but I'm rather upset right now and entirely stressed.

I hope you are well interewebz.

Not quite lonely...but kinda.

I'm back from lunch :)
I'm working on a short story for school. I figured out the main characters names. Yes, this is an important part for me. My characters names always have meaning. I guess it is one of my quirks but I really enjoy naming the characters in my story. I have two baby name books just for that purpose and I will always remember the look that cashier gave me when I bought my latest one. Hahaha.
Anyway.... I feel kind of lonely. I'm not sure why but *shrugs* that is how it is. None of my friends are online. I mean, yes, I need to be doing my homework but I miss me friends. I need to get caught up so I can visit Bob in New York. I miss you Bob!!
Well, I'm gonna ignore this feeling and work on school. Dwelling on it won't accomplish anything. Getting my homework done will.

Until later interwebz

Eh...just a quick update

    Last night I had my bi-weekly exercise. lol Rollerskating is quite the work out for the unfit. I only fell four times but three of the four were quite embarrassing. The last fall was the most painful and I still hurt today. I have bruises on both of my knees and my back and shoulders are killing me! It's worth it. :P
    After skating last night I went over to Tortugas house and we watched an episode of CSI while I recharged a bit. I then went home and made myself get to sleep by 1am.
    I woke up early enough to get to class on time and it went well. It is extremely windy outside. I came home and made myself breakfast around 9:30am. I then proceeded to go upstairs and plant myself in my bed with my laptop to get stuff done. I have added some info to my resume data and I am thinking that I should eat lunch right about now since it is 12:47pm.

I might post again later today interwebz
