School Stress and Legally Blonde!

I've been pretty busy with school lately. I don't really know why, but school's been really hard recently. All of my classes got a lot more strict on late assignments, and since organization is something I've always struggled with, it's making me really worried. I'm doing okay so far, but it always seems like as soon as one obstacle is done, there's another one right after it!

Bad Moods and Midterms

You know those days when you want to punch everything?

I am having one of those days.

I want to roll over and melt into the ground. Some guy got my credit card number and tried to steal 800 dollars from my account, so USAA shut down my credit card. Which is good, because then they didn’t steal my money, but… Now I am broke. I can use another card, but it's only for emergencies and absolute necissary things. So for the next six weeks, I can't spend my money on anything but school funds and the occasional cereal box.

Also school…. School…

Master Class

About once a month, on a Monday night, my voice teacher, as well as all the other voice teachers in the musical theater program, gather all their students together and hold a master class. Ours was a few Mondays ago, and what I expected to be just an ordinary class ended up being something I'll never forget.

Thanksgiving on the West Coast

On Wednesday at noon, I took the 5 hour long plane trip back to Portland, Oregon to spend some time with my family. It was refreshing to see my family and my High School friends that I missed so much.

And of coarse, my cats. I missed my cats more than anything. It's been really hard being at college and being a so far away them. Naturally, being cats, they didn't really care very much that I was back. One of my cats was being grumpy since I had left her. But that didn't really matter to me.

The Week from Hell

I don't know why it is that all big projects are always due at the same time. In High School, this was always a problem, but I was able to handle it. But in college, where the workload is greater and the material is harder, having everything due at once simply isn't an option. 

But nonetheless, last week, it happened to me.
