This Semester is GROSS

I have not updated in a long time. I just have not been very inspired and I have not had much time because my HW load is actually ridiculous. I've never had so much to do in my life. Second semester sophomore year is sucking the life out of me. I feel like I barely see my friends anymore because I'm always in the tech center fighting over graphic design or final cut pro computers until 2am. But thankfully, I have only:
-3 more days of class
-2 midterms
-1 essay
left to complete. It's still stressful and I feel so worn out by the end of the day. Not to mention the various dramas going on in my life right now revolving around living arrangements and packing and unpacking and $$ and everything. I guess this week is just an off week because usually I feel rather happy. But the stress is getting to me. I think I just need to go home for a little while and "recharge my batteries", as my dad likes to say. I HATE TO BE NEGATIVE BUT I JUST FEEL NEGATIVE TODAY!

Some fun stuff that has happened
1) My family came to visit. They took me and Adam out to brunch and picked up some of my stuff since move out is in 2 weeks.

2) I filled out a "part 2" London application and had to get passport photos taken w/ Christine

3) other than the last 3 days, the weather has been really nice

I just need 'dem study days.

I am...

I am a cook. I made brussel sprout and bacon stir fry. It was so good. I still have bacon. I'm going to get more brussel sprouts and make it again.

I am interested in documentary film. Yesterday I interviewed an orthodox rabbi.

I am learning to appreciate sports. On Friday I am going to a Phillies game but it is supposed to rain :(

I am going to be reunited with a friend and baby. On Saturday Jen and Audrey are coming to visit!

I am turning 20 on Monday.

I am nervous about my lack of plans. I still need to figure out what I am doing this summer. There's a chance I might live in Philly for at least 1/2 the summer. I would just need to find a really cheap place.

I am nervous about not having picked classes for London.

I am nervous that my London check was not received :/

I am sleepy and need to wash my hair.

I am eating a nectarine with Nutella.

IT HAS BEEN SO LONG SINCE I POSTED ANYTHING! But I have been both busy and unmotivated. Some things that are currently happening/have happened:
1) Today it is SO nice out. A heat wave has reached Philly and we currently have July weather in April!

2) In the last week I have become extremely motivated about doing schoolwork. I realized just how much I've been slacking off this semester (in everything but my film classes) and I just hate to not be as much of a success as I can be, so I wrote a paper 1 week before it is due, have been actually doing my readings, and have been editing movies non-stop.

3) Today I am interviewing 2 more rabbis (orthodox and conservative, yesterday it was reform and I loved him) for my religion final. It is due tomorrow. I am going to die editing it.

4) Friday went to MAJOR LAZER and PONNED DA FLOOR! So much fun. I was almost killed on my bicycle twice though that night. The first being my own fault (falling over while being completely stopped at a red light) and the other time was when a car threw a waterbottle at me. They missed by about 2 feet but they were trying to hit me and they could have really hurt me. Adam hit their car with his bike lock as revenge! Anyway, danced a whole lot at the show but kept getting separated from my homies. Caitlin bit my head and lost her phone.

5) I've been on a 16 and Pregnant binge. Such a good show.

6) I met Adam's family on Sunday for Easter! I had never been to a Catholic mass before and I have to say it was rather fun! I mean, I don't believe a word that comes out of the priest's mouth, but I enjoyed the symbolism of everything and the church decorations and especially the little girl behind me who wore pearls and told me she liked my dress. ADORABLE. After mass we had lunch at his aunt's house. Most of his family is very religious and conservative. It was weird seeing him being around them since he is so different. I LOVE HIS MOM. She gave me Easter candy and was adorable and so nice. She took these really awkward prom photos of us (see below) and then tagged me on Facebook and wrote the most embarrassing comment under it. Adam and I had quite a laugh about it because we felt so awkward.

Now I am making cheesy rice and preparing for my next class! After tonight, I will be free! I mean, I'll still have HW but not these hideous levels that make me want to end my life.
