Shopaholism? NO!

Since my last post was over two weeks ago I felt it was time for a new. This weekend was my first weekend off – no football! …at least not here. BUT OU did have our fourth straight win this weekend. Anyway, because I didn’t have a game to be at yesterday, I did not have practice on Friday and so I went to my Grandma’s house to visit a bunch of my family. My brother, sister-in-law, and niece were gone but my grandmother was there instead which was exciting. I got some new Uggs, a memory foam mattress topper (because college beds are so comfortable! Not.), and my grandma even got me and OU snuggie! Haha. How I love her. I got to see Keri a lot too which was cool. Keri is my… cousin? Haha I never know exactly how that family stuff works but I think shes like my second cousin or something. Anyway, I got to see her motorcycle and the new one she wants and it made me want one even more. But Ill have one eventually.
Speaking of stuff I want, I really want one of those new iPod touch nano things. Preferably the green one. But Ill probably never get one. Oh well. Maybe. And, oh yeah, I forgot to mention that we went out to get me a winter coat so I wont freeze and we somehow ended up with Uggs instead. Im not complaining. But, as we were looking at coats and as I look online some more I keep seeing so many of these really cute coats that I want. BAD. This is bad. Oh well.
So Im finishing up another bracelet and then Ill be mailing my first package out. So exciting I know. I needa figure out how to mail it though. Sad right? And I cant wait to get more boxes from my mom and stuff. GAH! I love surprises and presents. I bought new make up earlier this week which was good because I needed it and oh yeah PIZZA TUESDAY is this week. Its gonna be Taco Tuesday and Fajita Tuesday sometime but for now its Tacos. And I wanna make cake.
Besides all that, its SAXET WEEEEEK! (texas week duh) and its crazy because, since Im in the Pride, we have a whole fun week and weekend ahead of us and all I know is I will be EXHAUSTED by the end. Oh shizz. Its gonna be so fun though. The guard captains have all this cool stuff planned for us and then we leave Friday (the school even cancelled classes because its saxeT week) and the Pride has plans for the whole weekend. Crazzzzy. Ahh Im so excited.
Well, Id write more but I have some homework. OH! Speaking of homework, I had a Philosophy exam on Friday which I totally owned, and I had a Calculus exam on Monday, which I got points off of for being too smart (doing the work in my head instead of showing it on the paper because it was that easy. Haha) And overall I feel good about how much I study and about how I do my work and everything so yea. I came to college to do college and that’s what Im doing.
Well, talk to everyone later!

Don't You Hear Sincerity in my Voice When I Talk?

So, it's Friday, meaning I had my game day eve practice today and tomorrow OU plays Florida (hopefully not like we played Utah last week). I'm really not in the greatest of moods right now so sorry if I sound monotonous or anything. Todays practice didn't go well for me. I kept messing up and forgetting things and I was trying as I always do. But noone can be sure of that but me. Yet, on a lighter note, because it was game day eve, it was the practice where everyone dresses up. This is kinda my favorite practice because of that. The drumline has matching outfits for each part of the section and the trumpets all wear little pink shorts, etc. Guard decided to join in and because our show this week consists of Poker Face - Lady Gaga, Waking Up In Vegas - Katy Perry, and You Belong With Me - Taylor Swift we went with Taylor Swift and all dressed as she did in the video. Good stuff.

Anyway, I had something else to say but I forgot. Great right? Well right now my roommate is gone so Im taking a chill night in my room by myself. Too bad its definitely the wrong day for Alyssa to be lonely. So I finished watching Secret Life and omg Im so in love with that show. But this whole Ricky Amy business gets me to think too much about my life and relationships and what not and I think it upsets me somewhat. Maybe Im jealous? Who knows. But I also got myself some food from Xcetera, the store downstairs, and I even got some chocolate. Because everyone knows I LOVE chocolate and Ive been lacking it lately. Sad.

I've also been indulging in music, and right now Yiruma's River Flows in You, Paramore's The Only Exception, and Eminem's Love the Way You Lie are repetitively flowing through my speakers and flooding my soul with... the truth? First, go listen to those songs if you haven't yet. River Flows in You is always a song I turn on, and I'm thinking of looking into more of Yiruma's music because of this. Also, I think in a way I feel at home listening to piano. Maybe it's because I am in a way? Then, The Only Exception. God this song sucks. Not literally but seriously it hits home. I always put up defenses and pretend I don't care and try to keep boundaries between like and love and I'm scared to cross to the love side, but then someone comes along, or maybe he's already there, and it's like... Crap.

Lastly, Love the Way You Lie. Eminem is a lyrical genius, and he proves it in this song. But also, this song gets to me. Only a few of you probably even know why or how, and I don't know if anybody understands how badly it sucks. Once again, I pretend I don't care... but I do. Ehh. Oh well. New topic.  :D

Oh wait, back to that song. So I really want to have the opportunity to teach and write shows for a highschool colorguard when I get older. Not as a career but more as a hobby. I have so many ideas and I want to create and show people how I see the world... but through a show. Anyway, I WANT to do this song. Probably more than any other song. But for winterguard. And Ive already designed some of it in my head because Im like that. Gah.

Soooo, I have my first Chemistry exam this week and I have Engineering essays due on Monday and etc. etc. Its crazzzy. Especially because I know people who haven't even started school yet and I feel so far in. It will be the end of this semester before I know it. I hope it ends well though.

Right now I miss everyone back in Cali so much, its rediculous. I got Skype, but I only get sad when I have to get off of it.

Well, I'm going to go get in bed and chill out, because Ill probably be up at 5ish tomorrow, so um any news...
I have good grades as far as I know right now.
Im still in the pride.
I need a haircut.
Yea I really dont have any news. Oh well. Maybe Ill add to this if I think of something.
Love everybody!

Number One! So far anyway...

Hey all!
This is my first blog ever, hence the title, but what you didn't know is that the title has a double meaning. I currently attend the University of Oklahoma and I performed at my first OU game last night. OU vs. Utah State, and as everyone expected, OU won... but it was closer than it should have been. 31-24. Scary?

So, though this blog is open to all to read, it is mainly for my friends and family, most of whom currently reside around Sacramento, California. Everyone kept telling me to update them on my college life and I discovered this would be the easiest way to keep everyone posted at the same time. Well, this and facebook.

So, getting to that. I auditioned for the Pride, which is the University's marching band, and I am now a part of the Colorguard! It has been crazy and exciting. We have rehearsals five nights a week, two hours each, and because of this I have grown some awesome shoulder and arm muscles, as well as an interesting tan...

I'm taking Philosophy, Calculus, Chemistry, and Engineering right now, and I can not wait until next semester when I can plan my classes for LATER. Right now, I have a class at 8:30am. Not cool. Haha but Ill live. My roommates name is Darby, and at 4'11 she is a pretty awesomely short roommate. We get along very well and we like to share everything. Haha.

To those of you awaiting bracelets, I promise Im making them, and Kirsten I have the notebook out right now. To my fam bam out there, I miss all of you. Send me stuff :D. And to all my fam bam out here, come visit PLEASEEEEEE!

Anyway, starting my 3rd week of school this Tuesday. It's been going by fast because of the amount of stuff I have to do. Yes, I have been getting all my work done and I have been studying, Mom. Other than that I'm just living life and trying not to get too many bruises.

Love you all!
