The End is Near...

Well, the end is coming. Only 8 more days of school left for me. It's getting close, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. My movitation is decreasing, but it's a good thing I'm one of those people who has to have things done like 2 weeks in advance otherwise my grades would be in big trouble!
So basically this week I picked up 30 extra hours of work. Luckily most of those shifts are at night and not many people call at night so I just do my homework. Monday I worked for 3 1/2 hours and 3 of those hours were spent writing poetry that isn't due until December 5th. I wrote 10 poems and my professor is going over them with me today to tell me if I need to make any changes. Then yesterday I was at work for 7 extra hours. So the first 3 hours of that were used to do research on my Don Quixote paper (yeah, I'm taking a whole course on Don Quixote and it freaking rocks!) and finish my entire paper. Sometime this week I'll be meeting with that professor to discuss any changes that need to be made on that paper. Then, I took a one hour break and the rest of the time (between watching House and Fringe) I finished my other paper for my nonfiction class. I had to write a paper on my nose, and that was pretty interesting. Anywho, so now I am officially done with all of my papers and just have a few petty assignments left to do before I'm all done with the semester. Yay for being an anti-procrastinator!
Also, I went to Walmart the other day and was looking at their Christmas movies to see if I wanted to get any. I was looking back there and they had yet another Christmas movie collection. I already have the collection with Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and Santa Claus is Coming to Town and all that stuff so I decided to see what other options this one had. I was so excited to find out that it had pretty much all the other Christmas favorites of mine that weren't in the first collection were in this collection; and it was only $25! I called my mom to tell her about my exciting find and I saw that it had 'Twas the Night Before Christmas, that cute little mouse version that I grew up on. Once I read off all the movies it had my mom told me to buy her a copy and we were both really excited. So the next day my friend Kristal and my roommie Richie and I all sat down and watched a few of them movies. The best one out of the ones we watched was the mouse 'Twas the Night Before Christmas. I was even singing along! I don't know what it is about Christmas movies, but they always put me in the Christmas spirit and make me want to be with my family. Kristal and I are pretty much family, so that was good ha ha. Anywho, here's the list of Christmas movies I now own (and I am a proud owner *wink*):
(In the first collection) Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Santa Claus is Comin' to Town, Frosty the Snowman, Frosty Returns, Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carol, Cricket on the Hearth, and The Little Drummer Boy.
(In the second collection) How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Leprachauns Christmas Gold, The Little Drummer Boy Book II, The Stingiest Man in Town, The Year Without a Santa Claus: Deluxe Edition, Rudolph's Shiny New Year, Nestor the Long-Eared Christmas Donkey, Frosty's Winter Wonderland, 'Twas the Night Before Christmas, and Rudolph and Frosty's Christmas in July.
(Other movies)
A Christmas Story
The Polar Express
The Family Man (I guess that's considered a Christmas Movie)
Christmas Vacation (VHS form)
And probably some other movie that escape me right now.
So, if you're looking for a good Christmas movie watching time, you come straight to me! I'll be more than willing to let you watch them with me or you could even borrow some for a few days. Anywho, I was pretty excited. Well, I hope you all have a great day! PLEASE WRITE ME COMMENTS!

Funny Happenings at Work

Okay, so first of all I am NOT a fan of anime drawings. Kudos to those of you who can draw it, but I don't call it art. They're all the same, nothing creative whatsoever in them, and they're all meant for Pokemon and Dragon Ball-Z or what have you. Again, I'm not trying to offend anyone here, I'm just not a fan of the generic Chinese type of drawing. Anywho, you'll see how this ties in in a second.

So yesterday my friend Whitney and I were at work and she told me a very interesting story. She said that someone called in on Tuesday and said, quite properly and official-like, "Good day, I'd like to be sent to the art department for the university please." So she, of course, sort of smiled and sent him on his way. She got a call back a few minutes later from the same guy, once again in his pompous voice, said, "Okay, I need to speak to someone else other than the art department. You see, I am an artist and I've been doing some very good work lately. I even have my own 'myspace' page for my artwork. So I'm interested in displaying my artwork in the art museum on campus, but the art department you sent me to doesn't want to display my artwork. So could you please send me to the theater arts department? They might be interested in displaying my artwork." So she tried really hard not to laugh and sent him on his way.

So obviously posting your artwork on myspace makes you a legit artist and fully authorized to display your artwork in a prestigious art museum for a university. So his artwork could have been that little anime drawing up above. Using that logic I must be a published writer because I have a blog upon which I write my funny stories and hilarious happenings in my life. So there you have it, you know a famous, published author because my work is officially spread on the internet. I'm printing off pictures of myself as we speak and will gladly send a signed photograph of myself to all who are interested. Thank you, and good day.
