1) I wish it was socially acceptable to go out running right now. I don’t even care about safety and I don’t even run outside in the first place. The gym obviously isn’t open, but I’m completely annoyed/frustrated/upset right now.
2) The next person who asks me if I’m 21 yet/intentionally or unintentionally rubs in my face he/she going to a bar or legally drinking in front of me will get punched in the face. I don’t even understand why this is a big deal for me. It’s not like much is going to change once I turn 21. It’s just beyond annoying/frustrating/upsetting that I’m missing out on good quality time with my 21+ friends just because I’m two weeks away from this stupid age cutoff.
The main lesson I’ve learned in my social and personality development class is that you’re truly born with the sins of your parents. And I’m pretty much screwed.
Wednesdays are the worst day of the week for me and today was especially not my day. :/
12:00 AM - 1:00 AM
One of my sorority sisters invites me to hang out at her apartment when she asks if I can take her to the airport in about five hours because she needs to make an emergency trip to her hometown. I say yes. I also read 10 pages of my psychology of gender textbook. 1:00 AM - 4:40 AM
I go to sleep. 4:40 AM - 5:00 AM
I try to wake up in order to drive 28.7 miles and 43 minutes to the airport. 5:00 AM - 6:45 AM
I drive 28.7 miles and 43 minutes x 2 + additional miles and minutes of me getting lost. My parking spot I had left is still empty when I get back. 6:45 AM - 9:45 AM
I go to sleep again. 9:45 AM - 10:50 AM
I wake up and get ready not only for a recruitment workshop, but for boat party I knew that I couldn’t even make. 10:50 AM - 11:00 AM
I walk to the recruitment workshop thinking, “Why did I even dress up believing that this will end at the exact latest 1:30 PM so I can make the 30-minute drive, assuming no traffic, to this boat party?” 11:00 AM - 1:30 PM
We literally end at 1:30 PM. I am in shock. Our recruitment officer encourages me to make it. The guy hosting the boat party says he can hold the boat for a few minutes. 1:30 PM - 1:40 PM
I run and grab a can of Monster to go along with a 100-calorie yogurt-covered pretzels as my fuel before running to my car. 1:40 PM - 2:00 PM
I make an exactly 30-minute 22-mile trip in exactly 20 minutes, which includes traffic, getting a tad bit getting lost , and going 20 miles over the speed limit. 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM
I’m on a boat motherfucker. Well, until it begins to rain while we’re in the middle of the lake. I also catch up with people I haven’t seen in a while. 3:30 PM - 4:00 PM
We decide to take a raincheck. I drive the 30-minute 22-mile trip in 20 minutes again because I was also in a hurry. To go to the bathroom because I didn’t want to go in the port-a-potty on the boat. 4:00 PM - 4:15 PM
I decide to go to the Walmart closet to my apartment because I couldn’t hold my pee much longer. I successfully do my business. I also buy a case of Monster. 4:15 PM - 5:00 PM
My parking spot I had left is, again, still empty when I get back. I arrive at my apartment when I receive a text from my same sister who asks if I could fly to her hometown on a paid ticket by her parents because she does not want to make the 10-hour drive back to college by herself. *If this was truly the most yolo day of my life and I did not have two important exams and classes on Monday, I would have said yes. I also eat my first meal of the day and play with my roommate’s dog who happens to be visiting. 5:00 PM - 7:30 PM
I go to sleep again. 7:30 PM - 8:30 PM
I wake up and text people if I could study with them. One of them says he needs to go to Walmart first and asks if I can drive since his truck got rear-ended and is housing a squirrel’s nest. 8:30 PM - 9:30 PM
I make my second Walmart trip. We see a friend we haven’t seen in a while. I find out that Hello Kitty has her own line of popsicle as well as my first ever legit fraternity formal I am going to is after my 21st birthday, exactly what I was wishing for it to be. 9:30 PM - 11:55 PM
We drive back to his apartment. I reveal some more secrets about my life and beliefs while he reveals his. I eat Tuna Helper for the first time and as my second meal of the day. I read 10 more pages of my psychology of gender textbook as he falls asleep on the couch. He says he’s gonna go to sleep for real and I receive a really warm hug. 11:55 PM - 12:00 AM
My parking spot I had left is no longer empty when I get back. I circle the parking lots twice trying to find a decent distance parking space from my apartment. I park at a decent spot.
I was gonna do a tl;dr version of this, but I realized that even typing this out was too long; don’t wanna type. But it was def worth typing out. :)
The Schedule of the (Al)Most* Yolo Day of My Life
Let’s see if I can actually recruit participants from Tumblr lol (I got permission for this btw :D).
Would anyone mind taking my short and simple survey for experimental projects? You must have attended UTD AND participated in at least one on-campus organization last semester. More importantly, my survey is collecting data from students in different types of on-campus organizations. If you’re in another organization and feel comfortable enough to pass this survey onto the rest of the members, could you also please share them this link? https:// utdallas.qualtrics.com/SE/ ?SID=SV_eg4ktbXC1HnkYLj&q_sm=Fa cebook All your help is very much appreciated! Thank you so much! Mar 21
I know I’m a few days late in talking about this, but one of my most favorite parts of the Muse concert was when they chose to play from their first album. Not only that, but they played one of my favorite songs ever, Sunburn. =OOO But who am I kidding, all the parts of the Muse concert were my favorite.
