Ok, here’s the big spring break update. I’ll just break it up into days to make it easier on everyone. NOw hopefully I can even remember what I did.
Friday: Work sucked, and Alicia and I took a long (like 1/2 hour) break to get some coffee and go to the bank. I talked most of the time, and then just killed time. SOmewhere in there, I actually did some work. Some. Just as I was getting off, Chris was getting to the circle, so he picked me up there, and we went back to campus. He was tired and a bit grouchy, but I was just happy to see him! We brought all his stuff in, and went to dinner with some people, which was fun. We didn’t stay too long cause Chris wanted to go back to the room. We didn’t really do much that night, just watched TV and went to bed.
Saturday: We went to The Getty Center with kat and her mom, which was really fun! We spent the whole day just walking around and having a good time. The museum was really big, but didn’t relaly have the kind of art I like. Strangely enough, it had a piece I learned about in Art History, so that was crazy. Nothing else really that day, Chris and I drove home, and did nothing.
Sunday: I think this was the day we went to the Long Beach Museum? I don’t remember what we did this day, maybe Chris does.
Monday: Chris went for his first interview. After that, we did some apartment shopping with Byron. This summer is shaping up to be very confusing, for many reasons, but I’ll discuss that later. Anyways, after that, Chris and I hung around. Maybe this was the day we went to Long Beach. Didn’t do anything exciting, I guess.
Tuesday: Chris had his other interview. When he was done, we did some apartment shopping again, and then…. I don’t remember. WEnt to Long Beach?? LOL.
Wednesday: We were planning to go to MOCA today, but it was closed, so we decided to go to San Diego instead. We were gonna go to the SD Museum of Contemporary Art, and we got there (it was actually located in La Jolla) and it was closed 🙁 That sucked, but La Jolla was so pretty. I’ll try to get the pics up. WE walked around the beach and rocks, and took some pics, and then we walked around the shops and looked at all the stuff. It was such a beautiful area, I wish I lived there! Eventually we made our way to Balboa park which was also gorgeous, and then we went to the Science Center and saw an IMAX movie. I kinda fell asleep during it, I love IMAX, but this one was about Austrailia and pretty boring. After that, we walked around more, and hopefully scared some breeders (we held hands most of the time), and then we broke for downtown, but never made it cause Marfs called and we were meeting her for dinner. So we drove back north to where she was and went to a yummy Mexican place and then to Coldstone. MMMM. After that, Chris and I drove home, and totally crashed.
Thursday: Went to the LA Museum of Contemporary Art. It sucked cause we had to pay 12 bucks to park, and then ended up finding a place where you only had to pay 4. Suck. Anyways, the museum was really cool, it was totally the art that I love. It sucked that we couldn’t take any pics, b/c there were lots of photo ops. MOCA is actually 3 museums, so we walked to the 2nd location, and went through Little Tokyo, which was pretty cool. The 2nd one had a lot of cool stuff, like this room with all white walls and then just this big thing against one of them that was illuminated from behind and had a thin strip of lighting going around the outside and it made the entire room glow an odd color and when you looked at it, I got lost inside the color, it was really amazing, I loved it. Lots of other crazy stuff there. Walked back to the car, and couldn’t find it, and ended up eating at Carls Jr. b/c we were so hungry. Finally found the car, drove to the next one, which was in West Hollywood and we saw all the gay pride flags and it was tons of fun. The one there sucked, it was like 2 floors and it was just very tiny. It was like the size of my house back in Iowa. Maybe smaller. Not worth it casue we ended up in tons of traffic on the way home. Got home, watched TV and crashed.
Friday: Went all around. Looked at a couple more apartments, then went to Target so I could pick up some stuff. After that, we broke for home and hung out there, and I did some homework. THen we went up to Natalies for a BBQ, which was really fun. Jenn showed me her breast and I was scared… and excited 🙂 It was a good time though, lots of yummy food and good times. Chris and I broke early cause it was his last night here and we wanted to spend some alone time together. The rest of Friday is best kept for a private entry 😉
Saturday: Chris left this morning at 7:15. I was very sad and cried for a bit. Then I got up, got ready, did some homework, and have been at work ever since 9:20 or so. Nothing going on here, just plowing through a ton of shit that I have to do. I haven’t decided whether I’ll be coming back tomorrow or not. I probably will, cause I need the money.
And speaking of that. I got my Financial Aid thingy. And was very upset. All I got offered were two loans. And not even very good ones. One of them is for parents and has to start being paid right after the money is given out. And the other starts collecting interest right from the get go. I haven’t talked to mother yet so I don’t know if we should accept them or not. Now I really need to get those scholarships I apply for. Dollars for Scholars here I come. lol. So that sucked, and made me upset about SAS and study abroad. I really hope I can still do both. I think that I am willing to go into debt for those things. For regular school, I don’t really want to. But for something like spending my summer on a cruise ship going around the entire world… how can I pass taht up? And this is the only time I’ll get to do it. So hopefully I still can.
School schedules up. I think I’ll be taking 3 psych classes (for my major) and 2 business classes (for my minor). I might also sign up for a Contemporary Art class, just for fun. And all those classes (except art) are on Tuesday and Thursday, which means I can spend MWF working all day. The art one was MW from 7-8:15. I know I said I wouldn’t take another night class, but I think this one would be ok. We’ll see what I end up doing. I register in two weeks and hopefully I get those classes. I had no problem last time, and this time around, we don’t have seniors or incoming freshmen to deal with. So it should be good.
Summer is gonna be crazy. I think now that I’m going to go home. The more I think about it,t he more I want to do it. IF I can work at Wells Fargo, I’ll make more than I do here, and I’ll probably also try to work at Hy-Vee. PLUS, I won’t have to pay summer housing. PLUS I think that if there’s any summer where I’ll be home all summer, it’ll be this one. So I don’t want to miss the opportunity. But so many things could change, we have to figure out who’s living with who and if I can even get the jobs and if I could pick my job up here back in the fall, or what the hell’s going on. Must talk to several parties before I make any decisions, but as far as I can tell, that’s what i want to do.
Ummmmm I think that’s it. No one is at school, so tonight will be boring. Thank goodness I have shit to do. Talked to Jennny today for like 45 minutes. She’s alive, thank goodness. Has a job, maybe a boyfriend, and moved to Beaverdale (Iowa). That was good. Called Court, she called back, I called her back, and now I’m waiting for her to call. Must talk to her about the jobs at WF.
Alright, well I’m gonna do some other stuff and then actually get back to working. Big shock, I know.
Anyways, hope everyone’s spring break was as great as mine was!!!
