So I got my history paper back 2 days ago and I thought it was a fairly low grade. Actaully I thought and still think that I should've gotten higher on it- so today during lunch I wrote the TA a lenghty email defending my paper and asking her to take another look at it and she wrote back:

"sorry but grades have already been turned in. I don't have time to address your points/questions because I'm heading out of town now but I'll address them at a later time if you wish."

oh well :( So I guess not everythings that peachy after all.

8:34 am
Have not been up this early in seemingly forever. Well its only 8:30 but I was up by 7am today and now I'm sitting here in my little office typing away (as you can obviously see) Its appropraite to mention here that I didn't sleep until 3am but I am already on my second cup of coffee so I'm starting to feel alive again. I've been listening to what I remember as a love song station from Connecticut but they just played Avril Lavigne so I don't really know...

So my plans for this vacation are quire simple really.

- go downtown before Christmas. Winter nights in downtown Seattle are quite fun. I want go to see the Christmas tree again and the Bon star :) I wish I could take pictures but I left my camera (and my checkbook) in the dorms :(
- go see Two Week's Notice w/ Marian Saturday
- read a lot of books ( I already have 4 set aside)
- write (hand write to practice penmenship)
- work on opalescent (for real)
- Nina & I are starting one rocking project. It should debut before my holidays are over
- watch lots of movies (::nods::)
- practice the piano

Ahh, now they are playing Celine Dion. That's more like the station I remembered :)

Sitting here filing expense reports and eating the biggest slice of fruitcake. I don't even like fruitcake but am absolutely starved. Yup, I'm at work. They hired me back :) which is so nice because I need some money. And everyone here is so friendly and I got my old work telephone number back and my office back. Yay.

I'm really bummed. I'm not doing as well in college as I wanted to. I'm trying my best and I'm still not doing well. I've never been in this situation before. Its always been I don't do well because I don't try. Or its I do well if I put in any effort at all. But now I'm working like 10x harder than I did in college and I'm still not satisfied with my grades :(

Mmm having ice cream and hot chocolate right now. Best of both worlds :)

Myra & Elissa came over at 8am this morning to surprise me!! Myra got me an Audrey Hepburn 03 calendar!! yay!! Even though I already have a Robert Doisneau one, I'll keep the AH one at home! And then we went out to breakfast and hung out and watched SATC and Myra just left.

The next 12 hours are reserved for studying!! If anyone takes away my hours I will be veeeery sad :(

Woke up this morning in a state of panic because of looming finals. aahhhhh. Just got back from an econ study session. I left early because it was wasting my time, tidied up my room and will study for the next 3 hours. SO if anyone sees me online or updating LJ or anything of the sort, tell me to get back to studying.

Wrote a letter to the void earlier. Will post later. Bye!

Yeah... i thought that math final was sort of a bitch. :( But I studied hard for it. I used parts of my brain that I had never used before.. I did the best I could.

la la la. this math final is going to f me over.


so here is a deep thinking question that I threw out during a 1am game of "Would You Rather?"

Would you rather kill (intentionally.. murder in cold blood) your mortal enemy OR take a bullet for him and die?

I finally whipped my ass into shape, dragged it down to the graduate reading room (I love it there- stained glass windows, high vaulted ceiling, shelves and shelves of old manuscripts, and elegant hardwood tables) and pounded the last 10 weeks of calculus into my head. Now I know my differential equations. hahaha which is more than I could say for myself 12 hours ago. Ah hour into studying, I thought I would die for exhaustion and contemplated going back to bed but instead I went downstairs and ordered a double shot latte( it tasted more like 5 shots but it woke me right up so it was, in fact, worth my $3.40). Since I couldn't sneak my coffee past the librarians I stepped out into the cold to get a breath of fresh air and watch the rainy Seattle morning. A trumpet quartet was playing Christmas Carols- it was all so beautiful and lovely. I'm so glad I got out of bed this morning and was able to enjoy all this when all I wanted to do was roll over and go back to sleep. Makes studying seem not so bad.

Spent the last 5 hours in the library, came back and received both of Connie's packages!! I <3 that girl- she cheers me right up. She got me my own copy of The Bell Jar; I have been meaning to reread that book for years, this beautiful crystal hairclip and a lovely,lovely vintage photo frame. <3 Connie!!!!!! My favorite though, was my birthday card. :)

Well, 2 more reading days before exams begin.

I want to do this so badly. The application seems easy enough; la di dum, I hope I get in!

I needed a new cleasner so I bought this one from Estee Lauder and they also had free giftwrapping so I had it sent as a gift to myself. Hehe!! I am so silly but every year I buy something for myself for Christmas.

Seattle weather is so awful!! Thank goodness I went to the post office yesterday because it was just drizzling. Its just pouring outside now and I've been in class since 8:30. It looked sunny at 8 so I didn't bother brining an umbrella. But when I walked out of math class, it was just out of control. But then someone ran up and said "Let me share my umbrella." Now that is a gentleman.

Guess what Nina got me for my birthday/Christmas? :) Well, I got her back a book of love poems. I hope you like them! I thought of you immediately when I saw the book.

Today was way unproductive. I wonder how long I can put off studying for finals. Not for much longer, I'm afraid. I did study calculus for a bit and then watched When Harry Met Sally with Cindy, Anna & Robert and then we all got into a debate/ argument over marriage. Then I went to Raymond's dorm, hung out for 4 minutes and then came home and wrapped gifts.

:-/ motivation, please?

Starting tonight, I am going on a 10 day do-nothing-except-study-for-exams marathon. I have been so unproductive all day week and its got to stop!

Went shopping today and spent hours in Barnes & Noble. I was in heaven :) Bought a Christmas/ graduation gift for my friend Katie. She's graduating from University this december summa cum laude!! Yay! Also got something for Nina :) and then I bought a Robert Doisneau Paris wall calender for me and New York Vertical 2003 Engagement Calender. I saw the 2002 one last year in Chicago and this is the first time I've seen in the Seattle. I was sooo excited. Then I went to Sephora & got some moisturizer. Boring.

I'm not doing any more shopping before exams are over & I haven't gotten anything for any of my university friends. I'm going to do it all online. Hopefully they will get here in time!

I'm soo tired. I am going to bed soon.

Should've gone to bed hours earlier but I stayed up all this time making amazon.com wishlists with Nina. Mmm that was fun. You can check out my wishlist in my livejournal profile ;)

I love Christmas! But I haven't completed my shopping yet and I don't have any time. And on top of that, I don't know what to get my mom anymore. My mom's always been on the lookout for a miracle cream so I had planned to get her La Mer but when I walked into her bathroom today I saw her own freaking La Mer counter in there. :( Now I don't know what to get her. I wish I had more time for all this shopping.

Had a great night but am a little tipsy. Went downtown earlier w/ Elissa, Stephanie & Kaia. It was so much fun. We went shopping and took pictures and walked around & talked. On the way back to the dorms, we had to walk past the haunted hall on campus and we scared each other so much that we ended up screaming and then almost fell over in bouts of laughter. I cherish memories like this. Going to college has been the best thing that has ever happened to me and I know that no one, espeically no one on the Internet, is able to take away this joy from being surrounded by so much love, laughter and cheer.

After I got back, one of my close LJ friends called me :) We talked for a bit and she's really lovely. We talked until almost 11:30 my time and then my friends came over and dragged me to a party. I didn't even want to go because I was so tired but after a few shots of hard a I got better. After a while, I got a bit bored but then Dan, Shawn & Raymond came in to hang out with me and it got a lot better because those guys are sooo nice and sweet and I haven't talked/seen them in weeks. Dan & Shawn are both Myra's friends so I only hang out with them when I'm with her. But Myra was still hung over from last night so she was safely sleeping in her dorm tonight :)

Speaking of Myra- Elissa & I are making her an audition tape because she wants to be cast as an extra in the next Harry Potter !! :) But anyway, here is a picture of her. That girl is so cute!

Ugh. Finals start soon. This term went by so quickly and I enjoyed it so much. c h e e r s
