(L to R: Heather, Kait, Me, Megan) Aren't we cute?!?
Wednesday, April 19, 2006
Megan, Kaitlyn and I went for a walk this evening and it ending up getting dark before we got back. On the way back to our dorms, we had to cross a major road that goes through our campus. We noticed that the "don't walk" sign was up, but the light was yellow and going to change. We looked both ways, saw no cars and started to cross. Halfway across the road, the light changed to "walk" and no cars were anywhere near us. When we finally crossed, a cop literally jumps out of the bushes and starts walking toward us. Keep in mind: three girls, alone, it's dark and a man has just jumped out of the bushes. We realize he is a cop and he stops us for jaywalking. He lets us off with a warning and that was relief. BUT WHAT THE HECK KIND OF COP HIDES IN THE BUSHES??? Is that like a sick joke?!?....scare the piss out of some girls who are alone at night?? We said "you freaked us out coming out of the bushes like that." He responded with "yeah, well, at least I was kind of in the light. My buddy who is like 6'5" and 250lbs likes to hide way up in the trees so you can't even see him and then come rustling out." Oh, well thank goodness we only got you....you freak. I told my Mom about it and she and my Dad think I should call our Department of Safety here on campus. I think I agree. I will call tomorrow and let you know what they have to say.
This is the warning I received...it's a card that tells me what website to visit in order to learn about traffic laws. Fantastic, now where can I get a card that tells me how to defend myself from people who jump out of bushes?
Stephen is an excellent dribbler (on and off the field...I swear, he has used my entire Stain Stick)
Kaitlyn winds up and gives the ball a good boot.
The goalie may have stopped this one, but we spanked his team anyway...HAHA :)
Kaitlyn is also an excellent server...which is why I am glad she is on our team.
And yes, this is Stephen, aka The Beast. This is pretty much the coolest action shot I have ever taken and I am very proud of it, if you couldn't tell.
That is all for now...I will keep you posted on the outcome of the last two games. May the best hall win! (that's us, by the way) :) ....not cocky, confident. TTFN

I was up early on Friday and the day started out a little foggy...
...But then cleared up nicely, revealing beautiful blue skies and balmy temperatures.
Even the flowers were out enjoying the sun!
This weekend was warm and beautiful and the company was great...just what I was looking for to help get me through the next two weeks of class and my week of finals. TTFN

Upside:It was an absolutely GORGEOUS day here today...I hauled out the flip-flops and everything. Just finished up class around 7 or so. Advice to other students: avoid late evening classes if you can help it... Tomorrow is my last day of classes for the week. Horray for holiday breaks! It's strange; this college is not religious, but we still get an extra long Easter break. My friend's brother is at a religion-based college and they don't get any days off! Odd, but I'm not complaining. I am headed home for the weekend...hoping to catch my little brother's tennis match (I hear he's smokin' the competition...atta' boy!) and spend a little QT with the family. Oh and only THREE DAYS 'till I see my girls: You can't see it, but I am doing a little happy dance.
Ok...happy dance finished. Gotta' kick some butt on my Chemistry test tomorrow so that means it's study time. *sigh* Wish me luck. Toodles.

Now, however, I have just enough time to hop in the shower and be ready for my current T.V. obsession: A little show called Gray's Anatomy. If you ask me, the best show on the telly. Why?, you might ask...Well, I will tell you why...McDreamy (front right). MMMM..hunk....and George(back left) isn't that bad either. I will take one of each, thank you.
I am SOOO looking forward to summer...ahhh warm weather...sigh. I am not sure why I am so anxious for summer-it's not like it is going too be much of a break. I am taking classes and working; prospects of a golden tan are looking a little grim. I think I am most excited about being back with my best friends and the fam. I am very close to my family; can't imagine going a day without talking to at least one aunt, uncle, cousin, grandparent, parent...ok, you get the picture. I'm a very lucky girl- lots of people love me!! I miss everyone like crazy and chattin' on the phone doesn't really cut it.
I miss my girly-friends too...Meg, Di and Trish. We are quite the foursome. We all go to school within an hour of each other, but we never seem to be able to get together. Everybody has such busy schedules. This week though...Reunion Time! We are all going to stay with Trish for the night. I am so excited I can barely sit still. I haven't seen my girls in FOREVER! We have tons to catch up on...one night may not be enough.
Now, however, I must devote myself to my homework. It was such a beautiful weekend, I pushed everything else to the side and decided to just relax. It was a nice break, but papers and tests that are coming up in the next week need a little attention. Dang. I will be back though...this blog is already becoming addictive. TTFN
