Dear people of the blog world,

I am no longer able to upload pictures to this website due to the fact that I have uploaded as much as my free subscription has allowed :(.  If you would like to continue following my life, you can go here:
I have created my own website...let's hope this one holds out longer.  I hope it's not confusing to navigate...I will eventually transfer all my other posts over to there but that's going to take a long time so I'm going to wait until after finals.  You can browse through January's posts because I transferred all those, but no other month is there yet except for the new posts for November!  Check them out!

Today I actually did some of my homework!  Go me!  I woke up and spent the whole morning trying to find a literary magazine thing to write this thing for my class.  I was getting really frustrated so I decided to take a shower and eat lunch.  Then I tried to focus more on my assignment and I finally finished it about 5 hours after I started working on it.  Ugh.  Then I don't really know what I did after that haha but eventually Mom and Dad came home and Mom had to go shopping and she was picking up grandma so Kelley and I decided to go with.  Grandma was really excited to see us because she hadn't seen us since before we left for school.  Kelley took this picture of Grandma while we were in Aldi because she's the cutest and I wanted a picture of her :).  She's so little haha.  Then we went to Walmart and Kelley and I just walked around while they did their shopping.  Then we left and we dropped Grandma off at home before we went back to our house.  I did more homework at night and then we decided to watch Amélie as a family since I might write a paper on it.  It was a good/strange movie that I recommend to people who don't mind reading subtitles.  After that, I tried to stay up to work on more homework but I got tired so I went to bed.

Today was crazaza.  I woke up at 10ish and ate some pancakes before taking a shower.  Ever since Kelley moved into her apartment, she had been taunting me with delicious macaroni so she promised to make me some of it over break.  We had to go to town to run some errands and while we were there, we picked up some cheese and noddles to make the macaroni and cheese.  When we got home, Kelley looked up the recipe online and we realized we didn't have any milk so we had to get back in the car and pick up some milk from the general store.  When we got back, Kelley started making the macaroni and then she realized we didn't have flour so we got back in the car and went back to the general store but the general store was selling flour for a super crazy ridiculous price.  Since the general store is pretty close to our house, we only brought money and the keys to drive the car so we didn't have anything else with us but we decided to drive to a different grocery store anyway.  Since we had already gotten in and out of the car a few times within the same hour, we didn't feel like putting our shoes on so Kelley was wearing slip on dress shoes and I was wearing crocs...and we went out in public haha.  They  had flour at the other grocery store we went to so that was good news bears.  We went back home and finally made the macaroni which was delicious and extremely filling.  Then we decided to chill for a little bit.  Eventually, Mom and Dad came home from work and we helped Mom make dinner which was also very delicious.  We had made plans to go to the movies with Jill tonight so we had to quickly eat and then leave to go to her house!
We got to the theater right before the movie started and Jill bought pop and popcorn.  She bought a medium pop and it was really big so I asked to take a picture of it because it cracked me up.  So I took a picture of her with her pop.  We watched Pitch Perfect which was really funny.  I recommend it to everyone who likes to listen to a Capella because the singing was amazing.  After the show, we went to Target so Jill could get cat litter and then we went back to her apartment.  We talked for a little bit and then we had to go home so I could do my homework.  I started reading The Invention of Hugo Cabret and then I got tired so I went to bed.

Today was a nice day!  Mom made pancakes for us when we woke up and then Kelley and I chilled on the couch.  Kyle decided to play some Super Mario World.  I did a little a bit of homework and then I ate lunch.  Kelley texted Jill and we got together with our BCF!  Jill came to pick us up and then we went to town!  We went to Old Navy and bought cute things and then we went to Goodwill and bought good things.  Then we tried to go to Salvation Army but they were closed :(.  Jill dropped us off at home later with plans for a movie date tomorrow night!  We had dinner which was really good and then Kelley and I played Super Mario World 2 player until Dad came inside and said he wanted to watch some documentary on the dust bowl so we had to stop playing and actually work on our homework.
Later, Katie and Jay arrived and we went down to have a fire and then Justin showed up later and Janelle showed up later than that.  It was pretty cold out but the fire made us warm.  For some reason, The Grey popped up a lot in conversation and when Janelle arrived, she said it was on Netflix instant streaming so we all decided to go back inside and watch it.  It was the first time I watched it and it was pretty good.  It was pretty much a movie about all my biggest fears but that's okay.  I wouldn't watch it if you want to watch a happy movie.  After the movie was over, everyone went home and then I went to bed.

Nothing says "I'm Home" more than playing Super Mario World on the Super Nintendo and that's all I did today :)  I woke up at 10ish which means I slept for almost 12 hours haha...then I decided to take a shower and eat my leftover Which Wich.  I saw that the Nintendo was out so I asked Kyle if we had the Super Mario World game and so he looked for it and found it.  So I decided to play because that game is awesome and it was pretty much my childhood.  The sound effects are so awesome to hear after all this time :).  My thumb got sore from playing haha...emberrising.  I took this picture of Kyle helping me defeat a ghostie level :)  After playing that for ever, I decided I should do something with my life but by the time I stopped and was ready to start doing something, Kelley came home so I lost motivation to do anything productive!!  We ate dinner as a family and then we all chilled in the living room and watched stuff on TV.  Then we went to bed and it was a great day of doing nothing!!!  I love being home!

Today was officially the start of Thanksgiving break!!!  For me at least.  I had a hard time sleeping last night since I slept pretty much all day yesterday.  So I woke up easily and then I took a shower.  I did not eat breakfast because I was still feeling a little nauseous so instead I decided to eat soup in my room and that made me feel 1000 times better.  That soup was the best decision of my life :).  After soup, I had to go to German where we spent the whole class period filling out the narrative past for the verbs in Sleeping Beauty (in German).  Then I had stars and galaxies and he let us out about five minutes early because of Thanksgiving.  I decided during stars and galaxies that I was going to pick up Which Wich to take with me on the bus ride home.  The line at Which Wich was kind of long so it took a while for them to make my sandwich.  By the time I got back to the room, it was time for us to leave.  I bought my ticket last Saturday and Maritza wanted to take the Megabus home but they were all sold out when she went to buy her ticket so she she bought tickets with the same bus service as me!  So we walked to the bus together and then we got seats together and it was great.  We took this picture while on the bus because we're cool and we get excited over things like taking the bus home together.  She also bought a ticket for the same bus as mine back to college so we'll be riding together on the return trip!
I ate half of my sandwich on the bus and we both tried to fall asleep but that failed for me.  Eventually we got to the mall where we were dropped off.  We got there 15 minutes early so Maritza's dad wasn't there yet so she sat in our car while we waited for him.  Once we found her dad, I got to meet her doggy!!  Then we said bye and Mom, Dad, and I went to Five Guys.  I wasn't hungry because I ate my sandwich on the bus.  Then we drove home and I said hello to my doggy!!!!  I love her so much but she kind of just ran away from me every time I tried to get close :(.  Kyle found a new apartment so he showed me pictures of that and then I went to sleep!  I'm so glad to be home!

Today was not a good day in the life of Lisa.  I woke up feeling a little nauseous so I decided not to take a shower.  I decided I should probably eat breakfast even though I wasn't hungry just in case I got hungry later.  So I ate breakfast and then went to cinema.  It wasn't that bad today because we just talked about the movie we watched last Thursday.  I went back to my room afterwards and then I studied for German.  Maritza came in soon after I got back and she had to quickly leave and when she left, I heard her lock the door...she locked me in our room hahaha.  I took a picture of our locked door because Maritza is obsessed with locking our door even when we're in the room and I've called her out on it a few times but locking it while I was sitting inside was just crazay.  I was getting super nauseous again and I still wasn't hungry so I decided not to go to lunch.  I went to German and went through a phase where I thought I was going to puke but I didn't and eventually I felt okay.  Then I went back to my room and quick ate something just in case I would get hungry later but I still felt like crap.  Then I went to rhetoric where we were assigned another paper and a presentation that we have to do after break...ugh.  I still felt nauseous when I went to my cinema screening.  We were watching Minority Report today which I was excited about because I've heard good things about the movie.  I felt super terrible at the start of the movie and it wasn't going away so eventually I decided to just leave.  I barely made it through a half hour of the movie.  The walk back to my room was the longest walk of my life.  I seriously thought I was gonna puke about five times.  I kept veering towards the grass in case I had to throw up but I made it back to my room puke free.  Maritza was sleeping when I got back so I climbed in bed and passed out.  I think I eventually had a fever because I was freezing and my whole body was aching.  I kept going in and out of sleep and this went on for about four hours before I finally got super hot and thirsty and I climbed out of my bed and I felt somewhat okay.  I took some Tylenol and then I started my German homework because it was due at midnight.  I really wanted to do my laundry tonight but I thought that was a bad idea so I didn't.  By the time I was ready to go to bed, I was feeling so much better and I wasn't that tired but I managed to fall asleep anyway.  I'm just glad that happened today and not tomorrow when I'll be stuck on a bus for 4 hours!
