TidBit Thursday Link Up.

I’m heading off to class, but today’s my last day before the weekend. I’m pretty happy with myself for not having classes on Friday. Gives me time for homework. I know it’s probably getting tiring to just read about my classes or university, so I promise to do my best to find time to post other things. I just can’t promise too much too often. In one of my classes, however, we sometimes get to do personal essays; the teacher from that class has allowed me to post it here afterwards. (: 
And! If I get it published somewhere, like Teen Ink, I get bonus points! Awesome right?!

What have you been up to?



TidBits from "Enter Month Here."

These are scattered tidbits from the months past…
Because not everyone has twitter.

Just give me Judd Nelson thrusting his fist in the air because he knows he got me… Just give my Patrick Swayze reminding everyone that nobody puts baby in the corner.. Just give me Patrick Dempsey offering to ride away on the back of his lawn mower.. Or give me Eric Stoltz telling me he didn’t know. ’85 – ’87

Imma get myself a big fat Newfoundland pup. That shall be my equivalent of a cat collection. I shall be known as the “crazy Newfoundland puppy lady.” Because I could never be normal and be something that already exists.

Doing laundry like a big girl!
So far so good. It’s the next day and I’m still waiting for clothes to dry ’cause I forgot to check if they were dry last night.

On the way to the airport, Victor pointed out a restaurant that offers “Indian Style Chinese Food” .. well that ought to be interesting, no?

So we were going to pick up Daddy at the airport.. But the car doors are frozen.. and refuse to open..So we have to wait now… 

 I kind of..um.. have trouble paying attention. Especially to vital details. This is problematic in so many things, baking very much included. See, sometimes I decide to get creative and look up a recipe, except it’s in “British” meaning the measurements are like so: 

170g flour

I am left gaping at that. I have no idea how much that is. No idea I tell you. None. 
 Anyways, a really nice lady wrote the recipe like so: 

170g/3/4 cup flour 

Easy right? British and American measurements (there’s a more technical way to say that I’m sure) side by side. Perfect! Right? Except.. it’s super easy to miss that 3 there… Take your time .. subtract the 3 from that and what do you get?… I’m telling you..I shouldn’t be allowed to bake anymore.

Helped Victor w/ his paper route today. Passed by a house with Halloween decor still up. I think they’re confused. (Yes yes he’s the golden child. Already has a job while I’m here spending it all on thin textbooks. Whatever.)

If you vacuum a spider it dies right? I’m terribly afraid it won’t and will, instead, survive and come back a 6-legged creature thirsty for revenge!

Just finished organizing Monopoly; who plays and then leaves everything upside down like that!? All the money was in chaos! (I might have spent more time than I care to admit, sitting down amidst three Monopoly boxes and organizing everything. Cards, money, houses/hotels. I see your smirks. I know, when I have kids this will seem so silly. But I don’t! So leave me to my crazy organizing ways!

I changed Blogger to “English – UK” just to see what would change. Nothing really did except I read everything in a UK accent in my head. ( I will never read it w/ an accent out loud because Loki-Lou and Sleepy Joe would, with good reason, be terribly insulted. )

From the week I finished high school: 
This week was fabulous… now.. let’s make it even better and GET THESE FINALS OVER WITH! 

Pankicking? Darn it I just made up a new word… to get rid of finals.. we’re gonna pankick!!

TidBit Thursday.

Four more days! 
 Just four more days and off to my first day of university I go.. I’m excited! A little freaked out, but definitely excited! So many of you have been super supportive throughout all this and again, thank you so very much.. it means the world to me each piece of encouragement, advice and support.

What do you say we linkup?




November TidBits.

“TidBits from the month before… mostly made up of tweets and random sentences made up of mundane occurrences.. because not all of us have Twitter and sometimes 140 characters is just far too limiting..”

We’re listening to a CD and I feel like it’s the 50’s and we’re listening to a Radio Show … Kinda cool .. ^-^

I just solved three geometry problems. All correct. I feel like superwoman. a genius.

I hate it when I need a drink of water but I’m in my pj’s and there are people (and by people I mean not family people) in the kitchen. So I die of thirst rather than change. 

Loved this: NYTimes: After the Storm, a City Full of Stories  The NYTimes gathered a couple of stories after Hurricane Sandy. This is the type of thing I’d love love love to do .. 

Whoa hello there late Autumn! Is it just me or did fall pass by in a blink this year?

Anyone else find Realtors an interesting lot?  (Our Realtor is a great guy and we’re having loads of fun with him .. I suspect he’s finding us quite the strange lot too ..)

This just happened. Victor bribed me with a pack of sour patch kids into letting him game on my phone. I am weak. He is smart. That’s usually how it works, no?

I stumbled upon a “face map” for what your acne is telling you.. basically wherever you get acne it’ll tell you what you need to fix in your diet/lifestyle to get rid of it .. The Kid was looking over my shoulder and asked “What about if you get them on your cheeks?” [Where he has recently been surprised to find a pimple or two as a result of preteeness]. “Hmm .. lookout for greasy cellphones and change your pillowcases often. Also you’ve gotta stop touching your cheeks.” I read.. “WHAT?! But my cheeks are the cheekiest cheeky cheeks!” he protested while putting his hands up and squishing his own cheeks.

#FacebookProblems Wished a girl “happy birthday”, she answers with “Thanks! Miss you!” I don’t remember ever seeing her in person. Girl how you miss me when I don’t even know you?

“Sleep, my little one, sleep, my pretty one, sleep.” -Tennyson [Tennyson makes my knees go weak]

And tomorrow.. The packing begins! Move No. 13!

The problem with really good Brazilian food.. Is that I eat it. All.

Also, there’s a whole batch of tweets on my current obsession going on on Twitter..If you want to find out what that most current obsession is .. Follow Me!
Hope Y’all have been having a wonderful December so far!
