7 quick lists

I found this post that I started well, 2 weeks ago.

1. Mexican restaurants with only one bathroom are probably the dirtiest around.

2. I hate when automatic toilets start flushing when you're not done.

3. I think it's bad when you start naming the computer that you always use in the computer lab of 50 computers. It's also probably not a good idea to get mad if someone inadvertently takes "your" computer.

4. I got asked today if my real name was "Dodger".

5. In chapel on Monday, the guy in front of me was wearing a black shirt that was covered in hair. So what did I do? I proceeded to try and pick off each hair without him noticing. Unfortunately, everyone else around me saw me and started cheering me on. "There's only two more, you have to get them." " Two more." These two though were touching the shirt completely. No piece of them were hanging off, like the other hairs. I tried to pick up one of the pieces several times to no avail but instead to the laughter of those around me. I couldn't do it. Instead, I waited until the perfect moment, when one of the hairs were leaning just a little off his shirt based on his posture. I got it. I was eyeing the second one when chapel ended.... I'll get it next time.

6. Everyone is high-strung and short-tempered because there are only two weeks left classes, I being one of them. It's getting interesting.

7. I have no idea what I'm doing at the end of this week. I'm either staying here with an internship or going to Florida with an internship but neither one has been finalized. It's kind of stressful but I'm trying to trust God through it all.

8. It rained so much Saturday and Sunday that we had flash flooding yesterday. I even saw someone canoeing in their backyard.

9. I can't think of anything else but I just wanted to post this.


I'm the kind of person that has so many little things going on right now that if I don't write it all down, I will forget and it will probably not get done. Another reason for lists, is that I am the kind of person who needs to prove to myself that I am getting something done amongst all this craziness and so visually seeing something crossed off my endless list helps me feel better. The bummer with my life right now is that all my projects are not just done with a phone call, e-mail, or 4 hour work session. So I never see that I have been productive throughout the day. To solve this little problem, I have started writing down stuff that normally wouldn't go on a to-do list but stuff that I know I will get done in one sitting. Stuff like "lunch with a Abby", "movie with Marie", "hang-out with Adam", "blog", or I even put one time "layout". People have questioned my list writing techniques but in the end it doesn't matter, because I feel more productive when I can cross something off my list and if those are the only things I can cross off right now, then so be it.

Wanna see what I've spent a lot of time on the last 2 days?

It's my resume since I'm supposedly a graphic designer/photographer.

If you're questioning why I would do it like this then look up these way cooler resumes.

Wait, don't go....

I thought before you gave up checking my blog everyday, I would tempt you to stay with a quick list. There has just been too many random things to be able to write a consistent post.

1. The reason why I haven't been blogging regularly is because I am in the class that plans Highbridge Film Festival. It is... well you guesse
d it, a film festival that has our own university students' fil
ms and even one high school student's film (who wins some scholarship... but hey that's not important.) The point is that this is a big deal event that 1500+ people come to. We fly in judges from L.A., have a red carpet, everyone gets dressed up, and then a reception with fun music and food follows. So needless to say, I'm super busy with all the work for that class since the event is less than 2 weeks away. (www.highbridgefilmfestival.com).

2. I just got major side bangs and I really like them so I thou
ght I would share a picture with those of you, who haven't seen them yet.

3. I went to a Reds/Cubs game on Friday with the boyfriend and had a blast. Unfortunately, I don't know anything about baseball (I mean I know the rules but not all of the specifics) while my baseball-loving boyfriend even keeps score at the game, which is kind of confusing to explain but just know he does it..... The game was really exciting at the end when the Cubs, who had been up 3-1, let the Reds get a grand slam in the bottom of the 8th. Then the Cubs got one run in the 9th and had the bases loaded with 2 outs. Everyone was out of their seats cheering on their respective teams. It was so exciting. The Cubs ended up getting a third out but it was really fun.

4. Yesterday was fun because the weather was beautiful and I really got to enjoy it. I went on a nice long run, watched a movie outside with a lot of the campus, and then had a bonfire with friends. Our university showed the movie Jurassic Park on the Green (large "green" space in between all the classroom buildings that a lot of people hang out on. They do stuff such as play frisabee or lay on a blanket and read.) It was our version of a drive-in movie and was so fun. A couple of us sat together on our little blankets and cuddling close when it got cold or when we were scared. There were some parts in that movie that I did not remember happening. I screamed so loudly.

5. I have a problem of falling asleep before my roommate does. This is a problem because we are usually talking as we fall asleep and so I fall asleep during the middle of our conversation. The other night, I asked my roommate a question and proceeded to fall asleep during her 4 second answer... sorry Marie.

6. We just had a game of whiffle ball on the grass between the apartments/dorms. It was fun especially since more and more people joined as the game went on.

7. I have to go because I have 10 sketches for graphic design II due tomorrow.
