do I look lost?

No, this isn’t my first semester.

I get asked every semester if it is my first semester, the answer was “yes” only once. Do I look lost when I walk around on campus? Do I look like a freshman? Do I act like a freshman? Why is that the go-to question when starting up an conversation with me? Are people still going to ask me after I’ve graduated? When I’m a grandma?

Other news:

I folded laundry, put it away, AND did the dishes. All in one afternoon. These stars only align a few times a semester so this is monumental, and I deserve a treat (I like ice cream, popsicles, nachos, apples, crunchy Cheetos, and just about everything else edible).

I wish I could tell my boring homework to feed itself to the nearest dog, and something would actually happen. Only my boring homework though, I’ll do the exciting stuff.

when is the next gift-giving holiday?

In case any of you were thinking about getting me a gift:

This is a potato masher. A really cool looking potato masher.

This is what they call a “mix ‘n chop.”

For all the times I only want the core out. It has an eject button.

Actually, I just want the melon.

Honestly, I’d be perfectly happy with only this, a 50 piece cake decorating caddy.

slumpy days


We had a week off between semesters. I didn’t really like it.

It was my sickest week yet, so I ended up spending a lot of time feeling crummy and cleaning the toilet.

Jared and Emily moved away, and we’ve been very lonesome without them.

There have also been a lot of new move-ins with the changing semester, and some of these new neighbors seem like they are going to be really annoying; loud music, loud talking and laughing in the parking lot at night, etc.

Even Jonah caught the slumpy bug. He blew a lot of cute little bubbles and just waits for a lady beta to swim by and admire them. He didn’t even show off for me when I went and said “hi” this morning; he hovered on the far side of the bowl, sad and lonely.

A few good things though:

  • Mowgli and I really, really like the fruit popsicles Jared and Emily gave us (I told Matt yesterday that they were the reason I get out of bed in the morning).
  • We’ve been having outstanding sunny, warmish weather. Today, there aren’t even clouds and it’s not windy. Not even a little bit.
  • I’m looking forward greatly to school starting tomorrow, because my first class is a literature class. This makes me an uber nerd.
  • Jonah cheered himself up a little by attacking his reflection. Clearly he won the duel, so he went and blew more bubbles to impress any potential mates that might come by.

I think I’m going to have some Oreoes and milk. Then, maybe I’ll venture outside.

10 outrageous things

Outrageous things 1 -10:

My sixth grade typing teacher had only one arm.

On a side note, male seahorses carry the babies (I’m just an itty-bitty, teensy-weensy bit jealous). Also, seahorses have to eat almost constantly in order to survive, which is how I’m starting to feel.

baby mowgli

I can’t think of clever ways to say it because all of my cleverness has been used up on finals, but since I’m already into the second trimester, something needs to be said.

I call it baby Mowgli.

Baby Mowgli is due on the coolest day of the year: 10/10/10. Based on absolutely nothing, I think it’s a boy. I will be completely overjoyed with either a boy or a girl, I just think it’s a boy. Based on absolutely nothing medical, my doctor also thinks it’s a boy. We find out in the beginning of May whether or not I’m totally crazy.

Baby Mowgli doesn’t like:

  • eggs (I love them and hope Mowgli changes his mind)
  • more than 8 ounces of liquid at a time
  • potato skin
  • broccoli, as of yesterday

Two bathroom things that are convenient until you have to vomit:

  • automatically flushing toilets
  • motion sensing lights

Weirdest cravings:

  • vinegar, vinegar, and more vinegar (I never act on this craving, it just smells so good)
  • spaghetti and scrambled eggs, together (I didn’t make it, that’s gross)

I don’t know what else to say. I don’t know how much people want to know. I realize that this is my blog so I can say whatever I want, but I’m not really sure how much I want to be published to the internet forever. We’re not making any announcements on Facebook or anything like that, for reasons I think most people who read my blog will understand.

I’m rather attached to baby Mowgli, and since I’ve officially posted about it, you’ll be reading a lot more about our adventures.
