Eve of Lent

i was so blah todayyy.. i just feel so drained now! there's 13 days of school left and then finals week. i'm just ready for the qtr to be over! i felt like my classes today were pointless cuz all we did was watch videos in both of them! anyways...

-catching up with my cousin Angela from SanDiego
-going downstairs to Cam'ron's & Mark's apt. those guys are hilarious!
-getting out of class early
-pan de sal
-actually finished some hw early
-reading both Shannon's & Christina's blogs. i <3 'em!

-the morning walk to school... herra raining!
-straining to keep my eyes opened in both classes
-my throat feeling irritated

Tomorrow's Ash Wednesday... Tomorrow night is when i get to see the Disney Broadway's Lion King! I'm going to church at 8 a.m. which means i have to wake up early, i'm gonna be tired tomorrow. i better rest up so i'll be energized for the show! i also need to figure out what i'm giving up for Lent!

Happy Fat Tuesday Folks!

Coraline 3D

-going to class early and walking around different parts of the campus and bumping into ppl i haven't seen in a while :) always puts a big smile on my face

-Roomies Movie Night! me, alana, haiz, justin, & tony went to watch Coraline in 3D.. my FIRST 3D movie! it was goood, trippy!.. but i wish we were sitting in the middle instead of the side. we hella thought no one would be there cuz it was monday! wrong were we, pretty packed house! so we ere stuck on the side. the movie is creepy! but pretty good... i guess u can expect that from the creators of Nightmare Before Christmas (haven't seen it)

-afterwards.. eating at Stanford's for happy hour! yay for everyone being 21 :) and mm good mac&cheese!

-Italian Midterm.... took me longer than i thought and i was getting the concepts confused!
-Com374---i liked the stuff we were learning about before the midterm. class was SUPER boring today, i was dying of boredom and hunger!
-trying to figure out what classes to take...
-walking home in the rain.. i almost didn't bring my umbrella today! it sucked cuz it was all warm in the morning then it got chilly, BOO!

A funny moment of the day: eating the last piece of justin's coldstone bday cake! it was funny cuz his bday was last wed. and we saved one slice for him from over the weekend and then this afternoon alana & i were debating on eating it or not and we were like "oh he won't care, it's getting hard now anyways.. it's just a slice, at least we saved it for him, he probably doesn't remember" then later before we head to the movies he said somethin like "oh did u guys eat my cake" or "what happened to my bday cake?" and then we couldn't answer cuz we busted out laughing! haha dam, and we thought we could get away with it.. oh well we need to take him to the RAM! so he can get a mudslide, those are!

k time to read.. that's pretty much all i do when i have "down" time. UGH. bookworm status.

later gators _melissa

LOL--> i remembered that i made a blogger (the old name back in the day) in 2005! i guess i'm a hypocrite! cuz in one entry i was like "i hate surveys" then like 2 entries later, i fill one out, i was BORED! funny reading the answers and it was interesting looking back at the more serious blogs.

check it out! -->

but anyways... back to what's good.

i honestly don't want to be back in Seattle... i felt like this weekend was a mini vacation and i miss home and being with my family! *sigh* back to reality indeed.

what made my day today?
-grocery shopping
-having my parents & sis come to my apt for the first time (well my mom & sis came when it was EMPTY back in Aug) now that everything is fixed and nice & tidy.

-driving & listening to TAGALOG music on the way to the Seattle Premium Outlet to do some retail therapy! yay! (i love the bag i got from LeSportsac! too bad i can't find a pic online to post!)

-creating my own customized Starbucks card! (my mommy gave me a $40 gift card to starbucks & i went online to register it and saw the ad for customizing ur own card & i went for it! fun!) can't wait to get it in the mail!

it says "my anti-sleep, especially during class!"

-playing "I SPY" at like 1-2 in the morning (stay tuned for more details on that one) ;)
