I am a goddess - Mood:Good
Wednesday February 21 20181:30:35 PM |
Guess who changed her septum ring on her own? And I got it right ON THE FIRST TRY. Why? Because I'm amazing. And very good at stuff and things.

This week I have also been very productive. It's mostly to make up for not being so productive last week, since I was feeling kind of sick for most of it. And I have three thins due this week so it's a pain in the butt. But that's okay. I'm gonna write the best paper that's ever been written.

Some guy tried to grab me at the metro station last night. Freaky.

I realized today that I should probably update my death binder. Seems like something I should do... I dunno, every few years? Does that seem fair? That seems fair to me.

My mom is coming to DC to watch the Oscars with me! It's a family tradition. Who else is going to be watching?

I have an urge to watch old kid's movies. Should I watch them as an adult, or will it ruin it?

So I've started getting into the swing of things at school. This semester is already going WAY better than last semester. A big part of it is I purposely chose my classes so I'll have a more balanced schedule.

Another part of it is that I'm doing something called bullet journaling. It really helps me stay focused and organized and I feel like it's improved my quality life a million percent. Anyone else to bullet journaling??

School stuff aside, I've been doing some fun stuff. I started playing Pokemon and I beat my first game! Now I'm gonna catch all the Pokemon. Except Pelipper. That piece of shxt can go straight to hell.

I'm about to start editing my novel. I hope to release it before the end of this year. I'm so proud of myself! This is the second novel I've written. And it's infinitely better than the first.

I went to a bar with some buddies to watch the opening of the Olympics..

Goodbye Minnesota, Hello South Korea! - Mood:Good
Saturday January 20 20181:44:21 PM |
I got to South Korea on Friday. Made it to the hotel by about 8. I'll be staying in Seoul. I was really struck by all the lights. There's tons of different colored lights all around the city. It's beautiful. I've been in a lot of cities but never seen anything quite like this.

On Saturday, we went to the DMZ. It was very different than I expected. There's a lot of tourist stuff outside the military checkpoint... including a carnival?

We went through the military checkpoint and got to go inside the third infiltration tunnel. If you didn't know, North Korean soldiers have attempted to dig tunnels into South Korea for invasions. There's a ton of them, and probably more that haven't been found. When South Korea finds one, they close it down with barriers.

Merry (almost) Christmas! - Mood:Good
Thursday December 21 201710:15:37 PM |
It's been a crazy whirlwind these last few days.

I passed my Micro final! And I did better than I did on the midterm so yay!! I passed the class and never have to go back, that's all I wanted. Thank you god.

I had an issue with my housing company. I'd signed a lease for two semesters and then, with four days left before I was going to need to be out of the room for Christmas break, they decided they wanted me to move to a new complex. But they won't let me move my things yet because they want to clean the rooms or something so they told me to find somewhere to store my stuff. With four days before I had to be gone. Fxcking bastards. We had a VERY tense conversation on the phone.

Fortunately, I found somewhere to store my crap. I'm having issues changing my address though, which sucks. Hopefully I can get it fixed tomorrow.

I'm reading a really fantastic book right now (cont)

Walking in a winter WONDERLAND - Mood:Good
Wednesday December 13 201711:52:28 PM |
So I got an early Christmas present from a special YTer...

It made my day when I got it yesterday. Well... I think it was yesterday... my brain has been fried since taking finals.

I had my Micro final today. I spent hours studying for it, so hopefully I did okay. I'll give you guys an update once it's been graded. On Friday I have my Macro final (I'm not nearly as worried about that one) and I have to turn in a take-home final, which I'm basically done with except a few citations and edits.

I'm so close to being done. Which is great because I've just about reached my limit of exhaustion.

Anyone else out there taking their finals?!

Compliment the person above you! - Mood:Good
Sunday December 10 20171:05:12 PM |
We haven't done one of these in a while, so let's spread some positivity!

It's been a really good week for me. I wrote a kickass paper last week, and it was my final so that class is over and done with.

I've gotten compliments on my eye makeup the last three times I've worn it, and last time one woman said I had the most beautiful makeup she'd ever seen, which made me really proud because I've been working on it a lot lately.

I tried this holiday beer yesterday. It was... not my favorite. It was like weirdly sweet? I don't like my beer sweet. What is your go-to for festive booze?

I'm attending a Macroeconomics review session today. I'm feeling pretty okay about the exam. I shouldn't have a problem passing this class. Relatively speaking, I'm much more worried about Micro. Yuck.

Also, what Christmas movie should I watch tonight?

Especially if they are motivating quotes. I gotta hammer out a paper today.

Today and tomorrow are my last days of classes! Yay! I'm in Macroeconomics right now. Trying to concentrate, but I always find it hard in this class. Every class. I get tired of sitting for so long.

Look at how pretty it is outside! I heard that it's snowing in some parts of Minnesota. But it's gorgeous here.

My sister wants me to embroider a set of towels for her for Christmas, ones with mean phrases on them written all fancy and with flowers and stuff. I need to get started on that. Any ideas?

How's all your Christmas shopping going? Found anything great so far?

Sunday November 26 201711:32:26 PM |
Everything is all fancy and decorated for Christmas now. It's still like a month away but WHATEVER IT'S FINE...

I had a really great trip, but I'm glad to be back. Sometimes family time is a little too... family time, if you get my meaning.

Before I left, my sister gave me a gift! I had sent her a care package with a bunch of dumb, goofy stuff from Claire's a few weeks ago, so she got me...


She got me a Panda one and... wait for it... POCAHONTAS. My favorite princess for many many years.

I have NEVER seen library books so mistreated, I swear... - Mood:Good
Friday November 24 20173:52:06 PM |
I had to help my mom the other day at the library. We needed to withdraw old library books that hadn't been checked out in x number of years. They'll be going on the book sale. I couldn't get the checkout slips off the title-pages without leaving behind tape residue or tearing the pages. I told mom that, and she shrugged and RIPPED OUT THE ENTIRE PAGE. I think my gasp was loud enough to be heard across town.

She loves doing that. She laughed her ass off when she saw my face.

Yesterday was Thanksgiving, and it went well. Did you guys enjoy it? Everyone have a good time?

We spent it with my dad's family. I think the last time my dad went to Thanksgiving with mom's family, it didn't end up so well.... (continued)

I'm kicking ASS this week.

Thanksgiving break is coming up and I am flying HOME sort of impromptu kind of so I am trying to get as much done before I leave as possible.

I am just slaughtering all this work. Like a BOSS.

AND I made it past 25,000 words in my novel so I'm halfway to my goal! Which also means I'm ahead of schedule! GREAT SUCCESS.

Other happy things:
I bought some cool stuff from Amazon
My roommate has stopped bringing people over to scream and party at 5 am on Wednesday mornings
My room is clean and organized which always makes me happy

It's been a good few weeks

Tell me nice things about your day and fun things you've done!

Wednesday November 08 20173:44:51 PM |
Today is a fabulous, very good day. Hello to you all!

Good things in my day:
-I got to sleep in
-Annoying guy wasn't in class today
-Going on a date
-Bought some cute new shoes

I'm doing NaNoWriMo. Anyone else participating?? I've already written over 15,000 words so I'm more than a quarter of the way done! If anyone wants to be a writing buddy, let me know! I'm hoping to release this book once I finish it! This will be the second novel I have written.

My midterms went really well! I did quite well. I could have done better on Micro, but overall I'm pretty pleased with how it went.

The local Walgreens sells Wonderballs. My life is complete.

Tell me all the happy things about your day/week. Let's have a happy thread for once!!

I had the dream again. - Mood:Good
Monday October 16 20177:39:52 PM |
It's been about two years since my last one, and it's always the same premise. In my dream, I see my best friend, and she's inexplicably not dead. She explains to me that the whole thing has been one big, long misunderstanding and that she's actually okay. And I'm so happy and we talk and then... I wake up. And it's like losing her all over again.

I haven't had one in so long. I'm not sure what brought this on. Stress? But it sucked. I woke up confused and disoriented and upset.

I bought the latest issue of Cosmo. We used to read it together. That was one of our things. I thought it might make me feel better.

My first midterm is tomorrow. It's Macro. Wish me luck! I think it will go well, but who knows. Maybe I'll fail out of grad school.

(Kidding, kidding.)

I need some study tips. I can't concentrate at all today.

Hey, guys, what`s your best tip for being a Responsible Adult? - Mood:Good
Friday October 13 201712:09:23 AM |
This week has been so long. And I'm so so so SO tired. Always. It's like it's just my personality now. Can that be a personality trait?

Since I got here, I've been really trying to be a Responsible Adult. Going to bed before midnight, spending most of my time doing work and ignoring fun stuff, blah blah blah. But I'm kind of terrible at it. I'm a night owl, no matter how much I try not to be. I get frustrated with my homework even though I'm not supposed to get mad at a piece of paper. My room is a mess even though it should be pristine.

I'm not good at this adult thing. So I decided for this week, fxck it. I'm not being a Responsible Adult. I'm just gonna be me instead, which involves drinking some crappy beer and watching Grey's, staying up most of the night, all that fun stuff.

Midterms next week. I didn't pick the best week for this experiment...

Well, the concert was very fun! - Mood:Good
Tuesday October 10 20172:22:23 PM |
My friend and I went to see Starset and Halestorm! To be honest, I wasn't really familiar with either of the bands, but that's where he wanted to go for his birthday and they were showing nearby. So he came down, spent about a week with me, and we went together. It was super fun!

So here's a bunch of pics and stuff. My buddy isn't in the pics I'm sharing here because he doesn't like his pics on the net.

Here's this weird drink thing we had at the Sugar Factory:

LOOK AT ALL THAT CANDY. My friend doesn't drink, so we got the non-alcoholic version. It was amazing. But soooooo sweet.

We met up with my ex from ND, I missed him a lot, we had a blast. (continued)

I have kind of a special announcement - Mood:Good
Friday September 29 20173:16:20 AM |
So, as many of you know, I'm in graduate school. I have three concentrations. International economics (which is required as one of our concentrations), China Studies (which I'm almost finished with, since my first year was in China), and Conflict Management (which I decided to go into because it interested me more than general IR).

I've been really enjoying Conflict Management. I feel like it's exactly where I'm supposed to be. And the CM advisor told me to apply for this special trip and long story short, I was accepted! They are going to fly me and a few other students to South Korea, where we will meet with some high-level government officials to discuss the conflict with North Korea, their perceptions on it, and possible techniques they want to use to solve it.

Then, we'll all write papers on the issue which will be published in some book.

I'm equal parts excited (continued)

A rootbeer FLOAT.

What would he do if a lady damages his house?

He'll SEWER.

I am beginning to settle in to life here in D.C. School has been a hell of a lot of work, but I like the classes I'm taking and have made a lot of friends! Trying to balance my social life with my schoolwork has proved to be a bit of a challenge, but I'll figure it out.

Last night, my housemates got into a SCREAMING match about politics. Throwing things, stomping around the house, screaming obscenities about each other. It went on until midnight. I had class at 8 am this morning. We're gonna have to have a talk.

I have a really famous writer as a professor. He's very smart... but a terrible lecturer. I love reading what he's written, hate sitting in his class.

I found a bunch of nice bookstores nearby and I love my neighborhood. It has everything I need.

What's new with all of you?

I`m writing this on my phone. Guess why. - Mood:Good
Sunday September 10 201712:10:44 AM |
Because I just got the Mac equivalent of the Blue Screen of Death.

Just my luck, right? I have homework but now I'll never get it done.

Oh well. Nothing to do about it.

This week has gone well. So much is going on, it's overwhelming. Math tutorials and meet and greets and classes and shopping and never enough sleep. I'm a much better cook than I ever gave myself credit for - I've learned that.

But just for tonight I'm quiet and disconnected, reading in the blanket fort I built in my room. It's nice. I hope I feel a bit better tomorrow.

I think one of my roommates is flirting with me but I can't be sure. Makes me nervous.

I feel disjointed.

Stuff and things and life and BEER - Mood:Good
Saturday September 02 201711:38:31 PM |
I have been in DC for several days and SO MANY THINGS ARE HAPPENING.

First, I did orientation. It went super well and I met lots of people and made friends. I usually hate orientations and I feel awkward and never know what to say, but this time around it went great. Some of it was weird. We had Diversity and Inclusivity training where we had to stand up to identify our 'privilege.' But some of it was great, like the talk the career center gave.

We also had Happy Hour and all the alum came and we got to drink free beer and it was great.

I am living in this townhouse and my flatmates or what-have-you have started showing up. One of them decided to come check out the apartment at like 10 at night and walked into my room and scared the CRAP out of me. The ones I've met seem nice. I'm a bit nervous about being in a house full of people I don't know. But suck is life.

So I live in an apartment now, what up adult life - Mood:Good
Tuesday August 29 201710:04:38 PM |

I live in a townhouse with several other grad students/interns. I get my own room and bathroom, we just share some common areas. Spacious, nice accommodations for the most part.


The rules are CRAZY restrictive. No guests after 9 pm, so no overnight guests, not even family. No alcohol permitted on the premises ever. Quiet hours every night from 9 pm to 7 am. What on earth?! Should have looked at that more carefully when I applied for housing here. It's also kind of expensive.

The drive up went pretty well. It was kind of brutal but we made it in time today to get me all moved in. There's two beds in my room (one of which is a bunk bed, so three beds technically) even though I'm the only one living in it, so that's kind of weird, but I turned the bunk bed into a little fort so that's okay I guess.

I'm so exhausted. And anxious because I have a friend (cont)

On Monday I am leaving for D.C. Who's excited?! ME, I'M EXCITED. Also a little nervous. We're driving out there. I hate long car trips.

Tomorrow, my mom and I are going to the Ren Fest. I'm gonna do weird makeup and wear weird clothes, my favorite hobby! I haven't been since I was a kid, it used to be my absolute favorite place in the whole world!

The car is packed up and ready to go for Monday. Gah, my neeerrrrvvvveeees.

I spent yesterday walking around the farm. I haven't really spent any length of time here in what seems like forever. I walked through the grove out back. It used to be kept sort of maintained but it's super overgrown now, I could barely even walk through it. Found a bunch of our old forts from when my siblings and friends and I used to play out there. Fun times.

Also found my very first bike. And the machinery we used to play in. And lots of weird (cont)

I have less than a week and I'm moving to D.C.! HOLLA AT YA BOY.

If anyone has any advice on stuff to do or ways to make my life easier when I get there, now would be the time.

I just finished a book called Ararat that was pretty dumb. Poorly written, the author kept using big words that made no context in the sentence, tons of misspellings so that it must not have even been edited, and a (spoiler) half-assed twist ending that made zero sense.

So, disappointed.

Beartown is going well though! I love it and I hate it equal parts.

Apparently the McDonald's closest to my sister's apartment closed down. Someone shot a dude in it. Strange times in South Dakota.

Got tons of cute going away presents from my friends. I made such good connections this time around. I'm gonna miss everyone.

What's one thing you love unconditionally about yourself?

So, first we went to Wisconsin. We went to the state fair, some weird biodome things, and The Dropkick Murphys concert.

Then we drove back and my cousin came down, since it was her birthday, and we went to the cities. We stopped at Minnesota's Largest Candy Store.

And then we went to VALLEYFAIR!!!

So we`re having issues at our mall now. - Mood:Good
Monday July 31 20175:34:57 PM |
There's this total creep going around and harassing young girls, trying to get them in his car, grabbing at them. He's been doing this for at least a week now. Today, I went to the mall to run some errands and the ladies at the cupcake kiosk (my favorite place in the world, tbh) were in tears. He'd been harassing them and they had to call mall security and were pretty shaken up. I'm kind of wondering why they keep letting this guy back in the mall. I think it's time to call the actual real police and get them to remove this piece of shxt.

Nobody messes with the cupcake ladies on my watch. They are NICE LADIES and they give me free cupcakes in exchange for free tea.

Oh, that's another thing. Teavana is closing down. It won't really affect me because I won't be working there during the shut down, but I will miss all the tea. And my coworkers and new friends I made there.

Why am I sitting here watching Grey`s Anatomy? - Mood:Good
Friday July 21 201710:57:16 PM |
My sister started rewatching the show and at first I was totally not interested because, you know, that's not really my thing, right? And now here I am on season 8 screaming at the TV because ARE YOU FXCKING KIDDING ME KAREV, THIS SHXT AGAIN?

I'm writing a new story, this one is about a black metal band. I think it's gonna be fun. I had a bad nightmare the other night and I think it would make a good novel. Just have to figure out how I'm gonna do it first.

Who wants a compliment? I'll give out compliments, why the hell not.

I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed lately. I'd like to make a little fort for myself under the bed and sleep for six days. That would be nice. But not real practical, I guess.

The Twins game was fun, grandma had a great birthday.

Today a crazy man wrote me a poem - Mood:Good
Sunday July 16 201711:56:25 PM |
He was walking from store to store in the mall asking if he could write a poem. He'd ask for a topic, sit outside for five minutes, then walk back in and recite it. I had him write me one about libraries. He also showed me some cool beadwork he did.

Then some lady - who I had helped find tea before - brought me some Greek tea. I'm not 100% sure what the plant is but she showed me how to brew it. I'm going to try tomorrow, I'll report back on whether or not it kills me.

This week, we are celebrating my grandma's birthday by taking her to a Twins game up in the cities!

My mom and dad were grand marshal in our local parade. They drove the tiny car:
