So, on Friday, a bunch of us went to the Olive Garden for dinner to celebrate Carolynkydink's birthday. After that, Carolyn, Kelly, Zoot, and I went to see Firewall with Harrison Ford. It wasn't too bad. I found it amusing that they had wireless access even in the middle of nowhere. Oh, they had cell reception, too. :-) After that, our floor had a Valentine's karioke party, which I had been looking forward to for more than a week, but I had a really bad headache, so I couldn't go. :-( But Paul was sweet and took care of me. I just lay on my bed with my eyes closed while he sat with me and read to me and put a warm washcloth on my head. I just fell asleep there at about 11pm. I woke around 5am and changed into my pajamas. Then I went back to bed until 11am.
Saturday, my headache went away. Between the asteriscs is girly stuff that boys (if any read this blog) might not find interesting--just to warn you. ;-) *I spent the majority of the day getting ready for symphony. I watched the latest "Gilmore Girls" while I ironed my dress and stuff like that. Around 4pm, Carolyn, Christy, Kendall, and I went over to Emily and Jacki's room to get ready (Kendall didn't go to symphony, but she came to help us out--awwww). We had a lot of fun and skipped dinner. Everybody was really nice since I'm not girl enough to know how to do my own hair and stuff. Well, I guess I'm girl enough; I'm just incompetant. ;-) So Kendall did my hair and nails for me and Christy and Emily helped with my makeup and they all gave me consultations on everything. Anyway, Carolyn and Jacki left early to go to dinner with their respective symphony dates. The rest of left around 6:20ish or so when all our dates arrived. We waited until all of them were there so that we could make a grand entrance:
Here's me and my date (my boyfriend), that pretty cool guy I know named Paul:
So, we got to symphony in time for part of the "Opening Notes" (Paul escorted me in :-D ) and then listened to symphony. Afterwards, we went to the reception at UT Tyler in Longview (a little, I know) because it was free ::::winkwinkdoublegrin:::::. Some guy from some magazine took our pictures while we ate as many snacks as we wanted because the lady told us to and because, in the words of Andy, "Hungry people go to LeTourneau." Plus, I still hadn't eaten dinner. In the car on the way back, Paul was his normaly goofy self:
After we got back to campus, Emily and Christy came in Carolyn's and my room, and we watched Double Jepordy. Then we went to sleep.
Sunday I did homework and then Paul and I had dinner at his financial aide counselor's house. That was a lot of fun. We took turns playing halo with her son while simultanously watching 6 episodes of Monk. We were there until 11pm, so we had to scrape ice off the car before driving home (I was very careful on the drive home).
Yesterday, I got a lot of homework done, went to coffee with Lina in the afternoon, and finally watched another episode of "Alias" with my roommate Carolyn! Yay!
This weekend, Carolyn and I are going to visit our old roommate Amanda. On Sunday, the Singers have to sing in Tyler, and then I'm going to go see "The Importance of Being Earnest." After that, I think we have a presentation meeting. Next weekend, the Singers have to sing in Houston on Sunday. The Thursday after that, we're leaving for Spring Tour. I don't have a free weekend from now until the end of the semester except for maybe one . . . Dearie me . . .
Anyway, I need to go. I just finished reading The Awakening by Kate Chopin. It was very interesting and very sad. So now I should do some other homework before lunch. Ta ta for now! Hope you enjoyed this exceedingly long post. Three cheers for you if you got to the end without doing less than skimming. Until next time! ("Next time! NEXT TIME!!" [extra points if you know what that quote is from])
