exploration of the music library

In MCO110 today there was a guest speaker from Harkin’s theatres.  She is the manager of sales (i THINK), and she gave her little lecture on how marketing and communications go hand in hand.  Which they do.  But her speech made me realize how much I really do not want to go into marketing.  Which is why my major is J/MC and my minor (when I finally declare it on Nov 7) is going to be biology.  Wow…Amanda is going to be a doctor?  Who knows.

Went to World Religions with Lisa today, and saw Jen and DeAnna there.  Made fun of the professor a LOT.  Last time I visited class with Lisa, i kept count of how many times he could say “um” in a 20 minute time period.  He said it 208 times.  Yeah…

Had lunch at the pasta place 😛  MY LABRETTI WAS COLD!! What is this business?? 😉 Natalie’s salad got Windex-ed by this absent minded janitor guy.  Ewww. 

After lunch, Natalie and I explored the Music Library.  Oh.  my.  word.  The music library is simply amazing…there are two stories, the second story is completely FILLED with scores…  I tried to find a score book of Chopin Preludes, but alas, I couldn’t find it…the place was so big!!!  All I could find was a book of Valses.  I will probably go back on Friday during my break to look again for the book of Preludes.

So here I am, at home, trying desperately to finish this stupid English essay on reality television for tomorrow.  I hate procrastinating and doing things last minute.  But really ,it was my English teacher’s fault; sure he had the assignment up online for awhile, but he didn’t slap that due date on there until YESTERDAY…so yesterday I was scrambling to find all my “five print sources” in the Hayden Library so I could do my annotated bibliography which is due today. Ends up all the books I needed were in some secluded corner on the 3rd floor in the “PN 1990” section…who would have known!? 

I really shouldn’t even be writing this thing, it’s taking away valuable essay-writing time!!! Aahhh…

Hotel Rwanda viewing tonight, Lisa and I are going to go and get a nice 30 points for extra credit.  Maybe our history friends will be there?!?!

life is sweet

woke upthis morning…to my red graduation gown hanging on my door, and it scared the crap out of me.  See, i watched “the village” last night with natalie and lisa,  and lets just say i’m scared of big red cloaked hunchback figures now.  but anyway, i woke up, went to church, found out that alyssa quit..meaning that now i’m the only floutist.  had a 45 minute break between services b/c pastor brian is starting to shorten his sermon lengths now, and then went to second service.  had noodles for lunch, then went out for a bit, and then came back home to watch some tv.  lisa and i went to orch at 3, practiced a ton, then nick came to get me and jon to fix jon’s hair because his bangs are messed up.  but unfortunately, when we got to great clips, the wait was an hour, so no fixing jon’s hair today 😦  met up with natalie and mark at auslers, and then lisa joined after from her sax quartet.  then off to college group, yay fun.  kind of.  not really.  ehhh.  more like gawking at the gigantic earwig crawling all over mike and into tasha’s purse.  but thats okay.  came home, to a wonderful email. 🙂  i love emails.  just fyi. 

 sooooo natalie, tomorrow i guess we’re going to the pasta place?  😛

good day today :)

Today was an awesome day!  Hung out with Y-Vi during my break between mass comm and history, and Lisa and Natalie joined afterwards too.  Got a chocolate cookie and a frappuchino from starbucks, definitely was on a chocolate high for the rest of the day. : )  history was pretty sweet too, there was a pop quiz that i didnt study for, but i ended up only missing one : )  then we got let out of class 15 minutes early,  so natalie lisa and i headed to einsteins to sit and wait for the guys to come.  and while we were there, this guy mike definitely recognized me and it was great…:D  hehe, and then mark and nick showed up, and then the fun was ruined.  just kidding.  then natalie and i stayed and watched dredg perform right in front of the MU, they were alright i guess.  we will be seeing  them tonight at the concert with mewithoutYou and coheed and cambria.  tonight’s also our BURN PARTY with lisa, where some major burn-age will occur.  it will be great.  >: )

I’ve got an appointment tomorrow with an advisor in the College of Education.  Amanda Chan might become an elementary school teacher yet!  Right now, the plan is to double major in either Journalism and Mass Communications and Elem. Education, or J/MC and Business.

Didn’t get the Asian studies midterm back today…everyone was pretty upset, because that means we have to come in to class on Thursday to get it, and we were supposed to have Thursday off.  Lacie and Y-vi looked like they were about to cry, just kidding.  And today we watched a super boring video on some Asian guy’s murdered uncle, and it pretty much put the whole class to sleep.  I think I actually saw Dom sleeping.  Wow.  I, on the other hand, kept myself awake by filling pages of my planner with little hearts and stars. 

And then we discussed Sir Gawain and the Green Knight in Human Event…another bore-fest.  Natalie kept calling me during class because she got out early or something, so there was this constant vibrating noise coming from my purse, and Frankie and Kendall kept giving me funny looks.  Pop quiz too, I think I missed one.

Natalie’s thinking about going to Caleb’s birthday party.  I think it’s tonight, or maybe tomorrow night, I’m not sure.  All I know is that she wants me to come with her, and I don’t know if I want to.  I probably won’t know many people there, but at least I can make somemore friends?

It rained sooo hard today.  The sky was grey and gross looking.  😦  And it was FREEZING!!  I saw a few people slip and almost fall flat on their face, it was pretty funny.  And then I almost slipped, and then it stopped being funny.

 LATER: wow…that was fun.  we took lots of pictures, they’re pretty interesting…take a look at my photobucket if you are interested!

Honors dorms?!…and other stuff

Okay, so I may be moving into the honors dorms next semester!!  If I do, I have these picked out, in order of the ones I want the most to the ones I want the least: Hayden East, Hayden West, Best (any), Irish.  I have seen the Irish dorms, and let’s just say…they aren’t very new looking 😛  I really want the Hayden East dorms though, because Carmen’s the RA, plus they’re the newest ones, and they’re pretty nice (and big) compared to the others I’ve seen.

 Well today I tried Indian food at “Cafe Biblioteca” (what a lame name), it was decent.  Not gourmet or anything, but not too shabby for campus food. 

Oh, and the 05 grads from church may be getting a cabin this winter in the Snowbowl area, or possibly in Pinetop!  I’m so excited!  But then there’s the issue of whether to ski or just to go up and see snow.  If we ski, there’s always the possibility of someone crashing into a rock and cracking their skull open, which would be no good.  But then again, we can all just be very cautious and try not to crash into anything.  But then again, that’s not really something one can help, is it. 

History today was completely ridiculous.  Even though I could’ve sworn the chapter was due Wed., my teacher started asking all these pointless questions about Ch. 24…and then she made all the people who read the chapter raise their hands.  Only about 5 people raised their hands, including Zack and the Indian guy who said “take one for the team!”.  They got to leave class and I THINK they got an automatic A on their midterm, while the rest of us had to stay and read the chapter in groups.  And then, after wasting about half an hour , she let us leave.  Completely ridiculous.

Tomorrow I find out what I got on my Asian studies final…I know i completely bombed the matching, but I’m usually pretty good at bs-ing essays, even when I know nothing about the topic.
