Rest in peace, Heyhello5.
Who has two more finals tomorrow and just wishes they were over?
Everyone else is done…or at least it feels like it.
Also I want some oreos
I miss you all!
Hope you are enjoying your second to last undergrad finals!
Good luck to you too!!! :) - ab
ab - 1. Reading 2. Being with people 3. Trying new foods 4. Cooking 5. Watching movies
ab - to go to this bar on campus that notoriously serves underage people. Still have never been. Go cow tipping (jk). Go ice skating in Omaha, senior week, graduation, get into grad school, go to a midnight movie at this one movie theatre… idk! I feel like I’ve done a lot in Omaha. I need to think about this some more!
ab - I am a person who tends to be sleepy. I try to get a good night of sleep but I am always always always tired.
ea - Emma Stone! :) I tried to find her acceptance speech for the MTV trailblazer award, but I couldn’t!
ab- Ellen Degeneres. She’s just like really awesome ahha
ea - I am half way reading a book called “Who’s in Charge?” about if we have free will.ab- I’m reading a book called “Mennonite in a Little Black Dress” (I think that’s the title…). It’s about a woman whose husband cheats on her with a guy so she moves back to her Mennonite family to regroup. It is ok… the description sounds more interesting than it actually is.
ea - All cheesy romantic Christmas movies! Gahh I am wanting to watch some romcoms!
ab - all of them! Wuthering heights, Anna Karenina, The Great Gatsby, Les Miserables, everythinggggg
ea - Finals, my internship, what I should do tomorrow…aka what time I should wake up… hahaha
ab - finals, should I clean my room (no), laundry, showering, blah.
ea - My family usually stays at a hotel and recently we have been going to movies! It’s fun to be in the city during Christmas!
ab- we go to our family friend’s house every Christmas eve and then we go to St. Louis on Christmas day!
ea - Mike Mulligan and the Steam Shovel, I was just thinking about it the other day!
ab - Hey You Dumb Pigs! haha random book. And Get Lost Becca.
cc - Sheep in a Jeep. And Winnie the Pooh, all of those books.
ea - Making ornaments with my dad! :)
ab - seeing people!
cc - Christmas Eve with my crazy big family :)
ea- THE MALL GAME! You know what I am talking about!? I always wanted that game where the board is a mall ahahahaha silly yes
ab - Mall Madness?? Totally had that! And it was awesome. I always wanted Gack (I don’t remember how to spell it…). But it looked awesome.
cc - a REAL Tamagachi. I only ever had off-brand ones and they just weren’t the same.
cc - I love everything except the parts I hate. Which are finals. Final projects in particular. And the fact that it was 60 yesterday and 25 today and we still haven’t gotten any snow.
ea - I love most of it! I love learning something new and wanting to tell everyone about it! I do not like feeling lonely at school…but I guess sometimes you just go through those times in your life.
ab - I love a lot of stuff and hate a lot of stuff. Me sleepy brain can’t type now
mlp - I ended up being a bank robber/eskimo.
ea - cowgirl then golfer, I know it was a creative year people! hahaha
ab- a bank robber and eskimo at once? haha. I was a school girl person ish (yes my feminist side cringed). And then on Halloween I was a fairy.
cc - I was a witch and then I was a spider. I finally decided to acknowledge Halloween senior year. One and done.
ea - Neuroanatomy for sure!
ab- Intro to Counseling or Psychology and the Law.
mlp - American Lit: Culture and Humor or Irish Modernism… or Fiction… I like them all!
cc - Media and the Other most definitely
ab - Dan… I met him sometime senior year… Don’t even recall meeting him come to think of it.
mlp - Joey, about our Neglected Issues Debate tonight… four people attended, so I guess you can say the debate was rather neglected. Like my homework is right now.
ea - Jorge! (my roommate) About our party
cc - Maria. About the coffee project. No, I’m not crazy. The project is about coffee. The irony is unbearable.
ab - I was sad. haha Sorry I’m not trying to be sassy I just don’t wanna share how I cry at really stupid things :P
mlp - Recently, I have lost the ability to cry. The last time I tried to cry my roommate said “Oh so what, now you’re going to cry?” and I stopped crying. Oh, but I did sob when Obama gave his acceptance speech.
ea - Sunday about really stupid stuff as well….
cc - I am tardy to the party on these blog posts but the last time I cried was last night/this morning (I never know what to call 2 a.m.) from laughing because my friend and I are working on a project together and it was late and we were tired but not really because we drank a lot of coffee. Happy finals!
ab - This is the only tumblr I post to haha.
mlp - Same!
ea - No other tumblr! p.s. who asked this?
cc - Why?
cc - Those have bettered you? I’m confused… I’ve done a lot in the last year to better myself, on purpose, because I’ve realized that life doesn’t just get better, you have to actively pursue something better. I ran for exec in my sorority, I try to take more time to get ready in the morning because it makes me feel more awake and you also never know when you’ll need to make a first impression. I traveled somewhere that I was scared to go, at first, but loved after I was there. I also started sticking up for myself a lot more and taking time for what I really need, like reading and naps and time with friends.
ab - Somehow I totally misread the question… like I don’t even know what I thought it was asking haha. I will answer again later when I learn to read.
mlp - This is pathetic… I can only think of negative things. My mom took me to get tested for allergies, and I have an incredibly comprehensive list of foods that I am sensitive to and should avoid, which is something I still need to work on, but I hope will end up helping my mental health in the end. RUN ON SENTENCE FTW
ea - How it is the fake real world! hahaha I know what I mean… ya umm also free food, it is everywhere on our campus and it is great! ummmm ill think more on this…. I won’t miss studying since I will still be doing that!
ab- I will miss being around so many people that are the same age. I will miss free food, tshirts, etc. for attending meetings or talks. I will miss the dining hall actually (guaranteed meal three times a day!). This will probably be easier to answer after next year! haha
cc - pretty much everything, except maybe a few classes. Collegiate stuff is pretty much universal and it’s such a cool experience to have (I was noticing how cool college is when I was at mizzou this week and it made me think about how much I loved Marquette…idk…that doesn’t make sense in this context…).
mlp - Everything you guys said, but there are definitely some aspects I won’t miss as well. Mostly, I’ll miss the pretty campus and the excellent free resources… and my friends, mostly my friends. I’m too worried about next year to fully answer this question, I’m sorry!
ea - On Friday I was informed of 3 engagements! That’s a lot. Honestly it makes me nervous for the future but also excited! Real world here we come. This was a super lame question and answer…just on my mind….like all the other questions
ab- it’s exciting but it is also scary! It is a big sign that we are transitioning into a different stage in life and it’s weird! I was really sentimental about senior year at the beginning then once school started up I was too busy to be nervous. Now engagements have me thinking about the future all over again!
ea - everyone was gone for fall break and I spent way too much time at night thinking up bad things that could happen like in scary movies. And come to find out someone may have tried to break in! A screen is broken, like bent by something metal broken. Needless to say now I am thinking up paranormal activity level scary stuff!
ab- That’s really scary! I usually don’t get too scared around Halloween but I don’t really see/hear any scary things so idk. I am not really scared of horror movies but I think thrillers that can actually happen are really scary! But in a good way! :)
mlp - Erin, I’m glad you’re okay! It’s not that Halloween makes me scared, but other things are starting to scare me more lately… I live next to an entrance/exit door that is very loud and sometimes it scares me when people open it late at night (yes, I can hear it in my apartment and it wakes me up)… but Halloween doesn’t exactly scare me because I avoid horror movies like the plague. Halloween used to be my favorite holiday because it meant fall, but we didn’t really have a fall in StL this year, it’s been so cold!
ea - Corn Maze and pumpkin patch next weekend! Gonna also try and find a pumpkin beer!
ab- mmm! Pumpkin beer actually sounds good! I drank apple cider the other day and it was soooo gooood! I love pumpkin flavored stuff too! What I need to make it truly fall: caramel apple, pumpkin bread, pumpkin chocolate cake, candy, candy, candy, etc.
ea - I have issues. I think this is a super great question. Mainly because I have been thinking about it all day. This past weekend would have been senior Teresian! DRAMMMMAA and then the past two day Golf State! Oh to be in high school!
ab- Was senior Teresian dramatic? I should really remember this better! haha. Is this when I forced you to go Erin when you had kidney stones??
cc - I was not a real person 4 years ago…. I mean, I was haha but I am so much better/more mature/ sure of myself. Like, I let someone else take the guy I liked to Teresian (she actually asked me if it was okay) and instead of standing up for myself and what I wanted, I didn’t want to be “mean” so I said sure. That’s like, kind of not even relevant to my life anymore, and everything that happens I believe is for a reason. But like, I would NOT be at Marquette or as happy as I am today if things had been different in high school, I think. Wow, that was such a tangent but reminiscing makes me think big like that.
ea - View from my internship lab! Be jealous, not of this really shitty picture though
ab- Pretty! I am in mke so I don’t have a way to take a picture of my daily routine.. sad! :(
ab- I am going home to see my sister off to Teresian (tear), and then going to St. Louis to see my grandma and then off to Milwaukee to see Carcar and DanDan.:)
ea - Working at my internship!
cc - driving a couple crazy sisters to st. louis then hanging out in Columbia with a couple crazy people and then hanging out with my crazy family at home :) I’m excited, I’ve already requested meals from my parents!
ab- My favorite Disney movie is Beauty and the Beast! When I was little I would carry around a blue book like Belle and sing all of the songs to my parents. Best movie ever! :)
ea - When I was little my favorite was 101 Dalmations! I enjoyed Tangled last night though!
cc - The Lion King. You guys, it’s not just my favorite Disney movie, it’s probably my favorite MOVIE.
ab- Hmmmm. I love Barney on HIMYM. But I LOVE LOVE LOVE Marshall on HIMYM. So probably Marshall. #futurehusband
ea - I love Marshall too! But hmm one of my favorite characters that always make me laugh is Sheldon from Big Bang Theory!!
cc - All the girls from Girls. Or Mac from The Newsroom. Or anybody from the Newsroom.
mlp - SHELDON!!! I love Sheldon! I’ve been watching recently and I adore him!
ab - This puppy is adorable. I love puppies and babies and candy. I am in a weird mood and should probably not be blogging :P
ea - I can’t see this picture! But I am sure it is completely and totally adorable! :D
cc - i also cannot see this picture…
ab - I don’t refuse to eat it.. but I am not a huge fan of chocolate chip cookies. If I have to be polite and eat them I will but they are yucky. Especially when they are hot out of the oven. It’s like choking on chocolate! YUCKY!
ea - I have no idea! I guess vanilla ice cream…
cc - there’s hardly anything i won’t eat. i like to be adventurous with food! i think maybe i would draw the line at bugs.
mlp - Onionnnns. Fortunately, according to my allergy panel, I’m slightly allergic anyway.
ab- Sometimes I love Omaha and sometimes I want to run screaming. The river is pretty. The weather is all over the place but keeps you on your toes. The people here are the nicest I have ever met in my whole life. The zoo is nice but I never go. It makes me smile that past a certain point in Omaha everyone refers to it as “out west.” E.g. “Oh that’s pretty far away! It’s all the way out west!” The Old Market is funnish. Overall, it was a great city for college but I am ready for a new city or the return to my lovely city of Kansas City. (For the record Blue Springs is also a CITY not a town). :P\
ea - It is about the right size. We have seasons! There are beautiful views everywhere! Pretty easy to get around in!
cc - The Brew City and I have a love/hate relationship. I love my school and I love the things the city has to offer, like really fun and different neighborhoods with a lot of things to do and beautiful buildings and exciting things happening all the time and really nice people. But also, I can’t stand really strong Wisconsin accents or winters that last for way too long. I don’t see myself staying here after graduation, but I will enjoy returning to visit in the future :)
mlp - Hahahah I knowwwww that BSMO is a city, I’m sorry I was so ignorant back in sophomore year (6 years ago?). Let’s see, Saint Louis is definitely very different from the suburb I grew up in… I love Forest Park, and I love my friends, and I love my internship, but frankly I’m getting sick of the city now.
cc- Ode to My Cell Phone:
Cell phone, cell phone
What a useful thing.
Cell phone, cell phone
I love it when you ring.
You are old and battered
But how I love you so.
Hark! Your red notification light
has begun to glow!
ab - Cheezits
How I love thee.
(I can’t write poetry so I kept it short. I like yours cc! I totally agree :P )
ea - Blanket
You are so warm
You are not torn
This is good
It brightens my mood
Don’t get old
mlp - Folder
your peace signs
hide the turmoil
inside you are
