Go Find a Cave Then...

I hate hate hate FHE lately.  Not that I dislike the people or what we're doing, I just cant stand standing there for 3 hours not participating whatsoever in the activity/conversation and before you start berating me, yes I have tried to insert a story or help with activities.  The conversation is never really about something that I care or have anything interesting to say about. Earlier they were talking about some Disney movie and how the boys are such slobs.  I don't like Disney movies, so I don't have all of them memorized, and I don't think its particularly interesting to hear about how there's garbage all over the boy's apartment.

Maybe my hermit-itis has been acting up lately but FHE, a fun time to hang out with people and have fun activities, is turning into a giant chore.

Would it be Awkward if I Said You Were Attractive?

Spent five hours yesterday hanging out with a friend of mine.  I didn't expect him to stay that long but I'm not complaining.  He's a nice guy and its been a while since I've seen him.  We went to the planetarium show, got ice cream and then just hung out and talked back at my apartment.  NO, IT WASN'T A DATE.

I also bought something completely frivolous for 25 dollars.  Shh...don't tell my parents ;)
I need a job...

Mini Cute Things

this pictures pretty much made my day yesterday.  I totally would have bought them too, but they were 10 bucks and I didn't feel like spending that much money on something completely frivolous.  Still, mini bottles of sparkling cider are pretty awesome.  Well, mini anything is pretty awesome.  I have some mini spoons but they're always the first spoons to be used because everyone thinks they're fun.  I also collect mini dishes, or at least I used too.  I have all sorts of little pots and pans and glasses and plates and things back home.  That's what I would get when me and Mom would go garage sale hunting so I have lots of little things. 

Couldn't think of a good physics title, sorry.

This Much Awesome should be Against the Laws of Physics

Made delicious popovers.

Studied for my test.

Played my clarinet.

Feeling accomplished.

Who Says Physics Nerds Don't Make Great Dates?

I had such a great day yesterday.  I pretty much felt awesome all day, even though I was running on six hours of sleep, and I had an awesome date with that guy I met in physics.  I just have so much going for me right now and I feel like everything is clicking.  Look out world, I'm about to set you on fire with my awesomeness! 

Its amazing what a new friend and a date will do for my self esteem.

In other news, there's this guy in my math class that was complaining because 13 people in our class got a higher score than his 94 on our recent test.  This made me resolve to beat him on the next test.

This is Why Physics is Awesome

Guess what our professor gave us today! Slinkys!! Yup, we need slinkys for our homework on Friday.  This is so awesome, words can't describe it.  This is why I love my major, that and I get to stare at stars for hours.  How great is that?  This is a quality slinky though!  not like those cheap plastic things you get at the dollar store.  I'm gonna have ta find me one o' them nice toy springs with them weak spring constants and what not. 

I also met a guy in class finally.  I've been in that class for a month and I haven't been able to get up the courage to actually talk to someone but today I did thanks to an awesome pep talk from my amazing sister.  Even though it wasn't actually directed toward my physics class, she was actually trying to help me talk to this other person in another one of my classes that I just can't seem to form complete coherent sentences around but I really want to be their friend.  maybe that will go well for me?  we'll see.  All I know is that I have a slinky and someone to study with for the test.

Musical Physics and the Books of the Stars

My life recently has been mostly made up of


and my brain has to switch between the different mindsets several times throughout the day which often causes headaches.  Or I'm dehydrated, either way it gets uncomfortable.  But, whose complaining? Certainly not me, I love this stuff.  If I could be a professional clarinet player on the moon while teaching people about the stars in a library I would totally do it.  I have to pick one thing though, so I'm cheating and picking two, the stars and physics.  That doesn't mean I can't take a break and play the instrument I love or read my favorite book though.

From A Future Astrophysicist

A month has gone by in my second semester at college and I decided I don't call my family enough.  So, how do I solve this problem?  By creating a blog for them to read!! Yeah I'm such a good daughter.  I love my family though and I miss them terribly.  My roommate leaves frequently to go visit hers and I sometimes feel a pang of jealousy because she can just grab a ride and go visit them but I cant.  Things will get easier as time goes on I suppose, but I am really looking forward to seeing them in April.  I really shouldn't complain though since my older sister is up here with me and that's more than some people have.  She's been great, we used to fight a lot when we were younger and we still have the occasional tiff but I love her dearly and she has been a wonderful older sister throughout my life. 

So, to family and friends and others who may stumble upon this little thing I got going here, enjoy the writings of a college girls life, dreams, and other such nonsense.
