Today is a special day as it is my little sister's 21st birthday! I'm not down in Florida to drag her out and buy her her first legal (gluten free, vegan) drink. We'll celebrate when New Jersey finally warms up and she comes home for the summer.
Speaking of home, I am writing from my kitchen counter as I drink my soy-milk-creamed coffee as my mom mumbles to herself while creating some extravagant vegan/raw concoction in her blender.
I do like to come home on the weekends to help out with my nephew (I miss him terribly during the week), but I was also supposed to get my wisdom teeth extracted this past Friday. Unfortunately, there was a scheduling mishap and I won't be able to have them removed until Tomorrow. I hate, hate, hate to miss class. Even though attendance isn't necessarily required I feel almost guilty if I don't go. Plus, I get so much more out of being in class than I do when I simply listening to the recordings. I like to do both. I'll try to keep up with the recordings and head back the day after surgery so I'll hopefully only have to miss two classes. Besides, I'm only doing the surgery with novocaine.....trying to take it like a man...ya know ;)
I have things to figure out while I'm home. I need a new car and a hair cut. I know those don't seem like they're the same level of pertinence but I am beginning to look like Darth Vader again so my hair needs to be chopped ASAP for mine and planet earth's sake.
Plus, my sister can use my help right now as my nephew just had his adenoids removed because they were causing him a 90% airway blockage and terrible sleep apnea. Poor baby is a mess right now! We'll both be snugging and eating ice pops tomorrow.
This past week I had exams, I was highly pleased with my first grade, but waiting on the other 3 is killing me (of course!). It's sometimes tough having more exams than my fellow classmates (when they're all freaking out about Tuesday or Wednesday I still have Monday to freak out about) because I know they have more time to study...but I completely chose this for myself, and I can handle it. I have a couple other students in the same boat as well. I just have to be more efficient studying throughout the semester, not just right before. And I'll be done with my masters by the end of August, voila!
I'm completely ready for spring, so my cold weather outfits are seeming a bit grim and less-inspired. Of course, when the weather gets too warm I'll completely panic on how to dress fashionably without looking half naked. Oh, the struggles we face....
I just don't know where to get a haircut for a decent price that will look okay....short hair is so tough!
