It's been snowing outside most of the afternoon.

Remember when April meant spring and warmth?
Yeah, that was fun.

This was our quad Saturday morning...
why did it snow in April??!Collapse )

Saturday morning I went sliding down the sidewalks with Lauren, Kelsey, and Allison to begin our AMAZING DAY OF FUN. Day of fun consisted of us leaving Asheville at 8 am and dropping Allison off at Guilford College so she could spend the day with a friend while Kelsey, Lauren, and I went to the ZOO. I'll just put this out there...the zoo isn't just for kids. I absolutely love going. And, once we got to Asheboro, it was a pretty nice day. Cold, but bright and completely snow-less. For people who haven't been, the NC Zoo is supposed to be one of the best in the country - it's massive and beautiful and right now one of the lionesses has cubs. After several hours at the zoo (wherein we personified chimps and I bought a stuffed lion), we picked up Allison, had a catastrophic dinner somewhere in Hickory, and got back to school around 10.

Of course I took massive amounts of pictures, but here are a few of my favorites:

Rachel: I just want to break down and cry because it's cold and it's not summer yet and there's still a month left of school.
Me: I know. All I want to do is be done with this semester.

Soooo I was about to comment about the really awkward and depressing headlines on CNN right now, but Sarah beat me to it. I think she's a ninja.

This past weekend, I:
-Saw Ted Leo & the Pharmacists play at the Cat's Cradle. Though I inevitably got stuck behind the people who look like they're having the worst time of their lives, it was still amazing. Though, I'm told it wasn't as good as last time. Good thing I didn't go last time.
-Went to Northwood to see them put on Beauty and the Beast. I will admit to being skeptical before going to see it, but was very surprised (in a good way). Eli was my favorite part. <3
-I want adventure in the great wide somewhere.

This coming weekend, I:
-Will be having an adventure. It will be lots of driving for two weekends in a row.
-Good thing I kind of like driving.

Whoever said that what you don't know can't hurt you was a gigantic moron.

Happy Spring!

The Rules:

01. Leave me a comment saying, "Interview me."
02. I respond by asking you five questions of a very intimate and creepily personal nature. Or not so creepy/personal.
03. You WILL update your LJ with the answers to the questions.
04. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the post.
05. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.

1. Where do you see yourself twenty years down the road?
It's the question that everyone asks. "Where do you see yourself in x years?" Well, hopefully I'll be more or less gainfully employed at a stable job. If that's too much to hope for, I hope that I at least like the job I have. Maybe I'll be married by that time.

2. If you could choose one person currently alive to have instantly killed, who would it be and why?
Wow. I guess I wouldn't feel very sad if Ann Coulter dropped off the earth. Or got dropped six feet into the earth.

3. Would you characterize yourself as religious, spiritual, or any form of those two, and in what way?
Spiritual, but not religious. I've never felt comfortable in any particular religion with a strict or dictated belief system. I consider myself spiritual because, while I am not religious, I can't let go of the thought that there are bigger things than humans in the world. Other than that very brief explanation, I consider my beliefs rather private.

4. What food item do you view as being the most disgusting, and why?
Mushrooms. They make me gag. (I'm a bad vegetarian).

5. If you could choose one female actor from any movie of your choice to be gay with, who would it be, and why?
hmm...I always said I would go gay for Kate Winslet.

(Click here to post your own answers for this meme.)

I miss somebody right now. I don't watch much TV these days.  (With the exception of "my" TV shows. I'm not big on just sitting and channel surfing.) I own lots of books.
I wear glasses or contact lenses. × I love to play video games. × I've tried marijuana.
× I've watched porn movies. × I have been the psycho-ex in a past relationship. I believe honesty is usually the best policy.  (Key word...usually. There's an exception to every rule.)
I curse sometimes. I have changed a lot mentally over the last year.  (It wouldn't have been a year well spent if I didn't change.) I carry my knife/razor everywhere with me.  (Pocket knife.)
it goes on...Collapse )

Sometime last semester when I was registering for classes for this semester, I decided to sign up for music theory for no reason other than I wanted to take it, and it fit an open time slot that I had. Fast forward to a couple weeks ago in class, when it dawned on me that my professor, Dr. Entzi, came in to guest conduct a couple times in my high school band back in the day. I talked to him after class, where he affirmed that he had indeed come to help several times and he convinced me that I should join the university wind ensemble here. I was more than a little apprehensive, because music skills are the kind of things that are very easy to lose if not used, and I have not used mine in quite a while.

My parents came to visit Asheville about a week and a half ago and brought my oboe and reed stuff that I left with them. I made myself a reed as best I could and went to the practice rooms on campus for a little while. It didn't go half as badly as I expected it to, considering I hadn't touched my instrument in almost a year, and I could pick things that I had lost back up quickly enough. I'm definitely out of practice, but I'm really glad that I convinced myself to do this. I love music, and I love being able to be a part of it. I imagine that I probably convinced myself to give it up in the first place strictly on a burnout factor, which is unfortunate. At the very least, picking this up again gives me a skill that I can cultivate and keep throughout my life. While I don't want to dedicate my life to music study or performance, I'd like to at least retain the ability.

There's a concert on the 25th. Come plz thx.

I don't care that I missed the Duke/UNC game for you, because I don't have very much of an emotional attachment to basketball anyways.

Did anybody else notice that Juliet's last name is Burke (and she's a doctor), and Jack's last name is Shepherd (and he's a surgeon), like Drs. Preston Burke and Derek Shepherd on Grey's Anatomy? Probably just a nod by the writers to their "sister" show, but I thought it was a nice touch.

And...my bouncy star looks like it's flirting with me.

My parents came to Asheville today to visit me, and are staying at the Grove Park Inn. This is a "vintage ad" on the floor where they are staying for Grove's Chill Tonic. It makes you fat in case you ever get malaria and are really skinny! And apparently it outsold Coca Cola in the late 1800's. Malaria cures notwithstanding, the Grove Park Inn is amazing. It's a beautiful building, inside and out - you could probably fit a large baby elephant in either of the main fireplaces in the lobby. My parents were staying in a room right down the hall from where the famous pink lady committed suicide and the room she continues to haunt (they were in 555 - she was in 545).

Buss came to see me on Friday night. I wish he could have stayed longer. Eventually I am going to get off my ass and drive to Boone, maybe.

I woke up this morning and looked out the window, expecting to see snow as had been predicted and very highly anticipated by everyone here. No snow, oh well.

But...classes are still cancelled for the day? The webpage says for the "forecast possibility." They must be expecting a freaking blizzard or something, because I've never had a snow day because of the forecast.

In addition to the uncalled for snow day, Harry Potter Book 7 release date was announced today - July 21.

Talia has taken to sleeping on the couch in the living room instead of in her bed in our room. I wonder if I smell.

Edit: There is a lot of pretty coming from the sky now.

Last night it snowed a bit, and was extremely cold, so it froze.

Right now, with the wind chill, it is zero degrees outside. ZERO DEGREES.

The best part of all of this is that I don't have to go to the four classes I usually have on Mondays, and believe me, I'm as giddy about it now as I was in first grade when there was a snow day.
