Happy Thoughts for Thursday
Food! I was really crabby last night, and couldn't figure out why. Then I remembered that I forgot to eat dinner. Once I ate I felt much better!
Halloween is this Monday, which means that we get to celebrate all weekend long. We're dressing up for marching band rehearsal tomorrow, and I'm going to a party with friends on Friday night. I love dressing up, and more than that I love cheep bulk candy! Also, halloween decorations: we made our dorm room like like Hogwarts! We have plastic sheets printed with bricks hung on the wall, and each corner is dedicated to a different house. Unfortunately we can't keep it up since it's blocking a vent.
The fact that according to spellcheck, hogwarts is spelled wrong, not because it isn't a word, but because it is a proper noun and needs to be capitalized. Life is great.
Band. Football season is almost over, which means that so is marching band. I have mixed feelings about this, which I'm planning on discussing here sometime in the future. After winning a grand total of 2 games last year, our team is actually doing decently, and has a shot at making it to a bowl game this year. That'd be nice, but it would also extend the season, and I've already penciled in study time into all my free weekends. I don't really want them taken back. Also, the basketball season starts in about 3 weeks, which means that the marching band and basketball band season overlaps too. Things'll be pretty crazy around here when that happens. I have to say, I stomach the football games in order to march, but I love basketball all on it's own! I can't wait.
This: In order to graduate, everyone must pass Comm210. It is possible to test out of it if you took a speech class in high school, and can pass a written test on the basics of the course, and successfully give a speech to a panel. I planned on attempting to test out, and was going to study all semester long for the written portion. Tuesday night I remembered that I had scheduled my test for Wednesday night. I ended up reading the entire textbook over a day and a half, and taking the test. I passed by 1 question. Now I just have to give a speech!
COFFEE. What else is new?
New friends. Last weekend a mutual friend introduced my friends and me to another girl from marching band. We spent 3 hours together, and by the end of the night we were all just thinking "She Is Awesome!!", which, you know, is a cool reaction to have to a person. I hope we can turn this acquaintance into a real friendship.
This blog/project: So. Freaking. Cool. Plus, I love lloyd.
