The Dos and Don’ts of Finals

10 Dec

Do ask your professor any questions you have before study days begin.

Don’t rely on help from other students via Blackboard

Do print out all your study guides, notes, etc.

Don’t think about all the trees that had to die for all your papers.

Do invest in paperclips!

Don’t highlight anything you won’t need to study for. It’s confusing.

Do drink coffee.

Don’t forget to make some for your parents, otherwise they will be upset.

Do go to Barnes and Noble if you can’t study at home anymore.

Don’t spend all your time there Tweeting about how your old tennis coach is sitting next to you.

Do get candy to munch on while studying. (Sugar is good for your brain, right?)

Don’t pull handfuls of gummy bears out of your purse randomly. People will stare.

Do realize you probably should have stayed home.

Don’t stay there for an extra hour because you don’t want the people around you to think you’re a failure.

Do quiz yourself while driving, cooking, showering, etc.

Don’t quiz yourself when your mom is watching Oprah. Whoops.

Do step away from the computer.

Don’t go sit in front of another computer.

Do schedule 10-minute breaks to check your email/Facebook/Twitter/Blogs

Don’t extend that 10 minutes to one hour.

Do study hard enough that you finish the test in 15 minutes,

Don’t sit around and wait for someone else to turn in the test so that you’re not the first one too. Totally unneccessary.

Do spend the night at your best friend’s place the night before your last final ever.

Don’t finish the “too strong” drink even if you feel bad. I mean, you do have a final the next day.

Do kick ass on your last final.

Don’t stare at the idiot who ruined your group presentation like you want to kick his ass. He will not appreciate that.

Do be concerned when that presentation grade turns out to be bad.

Don’t worry too much, all the A’s from the beginning of the semester will pay off.

Do be proud that you got through college.

Don’t tell everybody in your class that this is you “LAST FINAL EVER.” They won’t really care that much.

Dreams and Facebook

12 Oct

 

Networking, stalking. Whatevs.

 

I had a really weird dream last night. I don’t even remember what happened in the actual dream, but the star of the dream was someone I haven’t seen or spoken to in years. I worked with him and that was it.

That’s a lie.  He was very tall and quite funny, so obviously I had a crush on him. Obviously. But that was it, really.

And I’m pretty sure the only reason he made this dream cameo is because my mom asked about him the other day. She’s seen him once in her life and never actually spoken to him. It was one day when she came to visit me at work. She looked at me, looked at him and then decided we were meant to be together forever. She also knew that he would sometimes call me when he was drunk and took that as a sign of love. So she still asks about him even though I haven’t seen him since 2006. That’s four years, people. Four years and 358930 different crushes later.

She really likes tall guys too. Perhaps I’ve mentioned this before, but my mother and I are basically the same person.

Anywho, I had this dream and woke up all weirded out. There are so many other guys I could be dreaming about, where the heck did this one come from? So the minute I jumped (actually I kind of fell) out of bed this morning I ran to the computer.

You see where this is going, right?

Yes, I am that creeper. And yes, if you ask me out on a date I will probably do this to you too. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. Hopefully I’ll have better luck with you though, because this guy? Nowhere to be found on the interweb.

(In my defense, I really only checked Facebook but that seemed sufficient enough for me at the time, plus I only had 17 minutes after that to get my lazy ass out the door).

But how weird is that? It’s also kind of weird that this was the first time I was trying to find him. Maybe I have before, and just forget. I can’t even remember what I wore yesterday so the probability of that happening is very high.

I’m so use to everyone having a Facebook that it honestly weirds me out when someone doesn’t. And the idea of me calling him (I don’t delete numbers..if I knew you when I was 16 and first got a cell phone you’re probably still in my phone) is just far too scary. Plus, what if he didn’t know who I was?

How embarrassing.

Funny thing is, if you Google me you can immediatly find my Facebook page, my Twitter page, this blog and every article I ever wrote for my school’s newspaper. Shoot, I might as well just give you my social security number now, huh?

I can’t imagine not being part of this whole social media world. And I think about this blog far more than I’m willing to admit, but I do wonder what it would be like to not partake.

I wouldn’t know when every girl from my high school gets engaged (unless I actually spoke to them in person). I wouldn’t know when every blog I read has been updated (unless I took the time to check myself). I wouldn’t know who got kicked off Dancing With The Stars (unless I watched myself). I wouldn’t know when the kid I rode the bus with in middle school got a puppy (unless…well, I really don’t need to know that I guess).

And most importantly, I wouldn’t know if someone I knew four years ago randomly had a dream about me.

Boo.

What I’ve learned from Facebook statuses

21 Jul

My Facebook friends are some crazy ass people.* Especially my homegirl and my sassy friend.

1. Apparently the chorus of the most popular song of the moment is EXACTLY what people are feeling at EXACTLY the same time. P.S. Airplanes aren’t shooting stars, so stop wishing.

2. It’s hot/cold/rainy/windy/whatever outside. Thanks guys, it’s not like I ever leave my apartment or anything.

3. My friends who work at Starbucks really don’t enjoy working for Starbucks. Especially when a certain somejuan is around. (ha!)

4. Finals are in December and May and midterms are roughly six weeks before that. Summer classes suck all around. This information would be awesome if I didn’t have my own syllabus.

5.” YOU’RE” OUT DRINKINGGGG AND HAVING AN FREAKIN AWESOME TIME! WOOOO YOU LOVE YOUR FRIENDS YEAAAAAA!

6. Now “you’re” hungover. And it sucks. Thank the lord for tacos and Gatorade, huh?

7. I have really emo friends.

8. Sometimes my friends love their boyfriend/girlfriend/best friend/mom/dog/professor/that guy they met on the bus/their landlord/etc.

9. Sometimes my friends hate their boyfriend/girlfriend/best friend/mom/dog/professor/that guy they met on the bus/their landlord/etc.

10. About 25% of my high school is getting married or is already married! And I can’t get a date! The latter isn’t on the status, just thought I’d throw that one in there.

11. That crazy drunk girl who sent that text on http://www.textsfromlastnight.com? Totally could have been that girl from my group in that one class two years ago. Because she is “JUST LIKE HER.” Yes, please continue being proud of this.

12. Everybody thinks their pet is the best. Um, actually mine is.

13. “You” are going to school, then work, then the gym, then “you” are going to relax for a little bit before doing your homework, THEN “you” are going to shower and go to sleep.

14. Oh wait, I forgot! “You” are going to eat and scratch “you’re” butt sometime today too.

*I’m a crazy ass person too. Obviously I’m guilty of half of these. Yay Facebook!
