Comps?

Current mood: happy
Category: Life

Sooooo I’ve been MIA for a few days now – let me catch ya all up on this (well not Tara, she was going thru it with me!)

Last tuesday I received the questions for my comps – For those of you don’t know Comps are the equivalent of a Thesis or Dissertations (sort of). The school selects 3 questions, sends them to you, and you have 5 days (I had 6 b/c of fathers day) to write an 8-10 page paper on one of the questions. These are no simple questions, one must research, analyze, synthesize, and write this paper in 5 (or 6) days – no easy feet mind you!

Tuesday
Soo got the questions, decided to do question 1. Placed holds on book thru the library of Cinci.

Wednesday
Started researching the different areas of the question online – printed about 100 pages of information.

Thursday
Picked up books, Wrote about a page of my paper

Friday

Wrote more of the paper (probably 4 more pages)
Went to Amanda’s Dress Rehearsal – and Dinner – Yummy. Almost died leaving the church (stupid lady pulled out right in front of us…we had to stop completely, with only a foot or two to spare…scary shit.
Came home and packed up for saturday – printed off my paper and I had 6 pages done.

Saturday
Had matthew drop me off at the hair place – got my hair done, dropped off at the hotel, put on make-up, got on dress (barely ), took pictures at Cox (cool place!) Went to the church. Got Amanda married (fyi the church had NO AC and it was like 95 that day….) The wedding was beautiful – I’ll upload pictures when I can. I’m sooo happy for those two – they really deserve each other. Yay! Went to the rehearsal and had to wait for the stupid boys to get their butts there….had food, had booze, and had fun. Can’t ask for much else. Work done on my comps paper? Zero.

Sunday
Rick came by at 8, was suppose to elave at 10 but didn’t leave till 11 – which was fine by me. It was great to see him. He’s a great person and I hope he moves up here closer to us soon! Got started on the paper around 1:30ish? and powered through it till 6:30 when I declared it done. Proof-read it, sent it to Sami and D (who are AWESOME PPL BTW! Gonna have to do something nice for them after schools over). Sami sent me back paper – I revised. in between waiting for D and sami’s email I made curtains for Jon’s new Apt. Got D’s email late and started doing revisions again. Finished the revisions around 1 am, went to bed.

Monday
Around 10:30 am I got up and re-read my paper, fixed different things and then submitted my paper at 11:00ish. Took a shower (the first in like 5 days – I know gross, right??) Got dressed and went up to Dayton to see Emmie and Kari and go shopping. On the way up there my car started shaking…badly. At the Dayton mall exit I hear a loud POP and repeated thumps. I see my tire is flying around on the rear drivers side. I maintain control of the car and pull onto the side of the highway. Frak – I blew a tire. let me also tell you, you all are very lucky i’m alive. My car model is notorious for flipping, this simple imbalance made b/c the tire blew should have been enough to flip me. Miracle of Miracles (and the fact that this isn’t the FIRST blown tire I’ve had) helped save my life.
So I called matthew and he insisted on coming up and helping me change my tire – what a good man. I started the process of finding the parts to lower the spare and did that. Matthew got there and we took the tire off and put on the spare. I’ll put a picture of the blown tire online here in a bit. Then I took the car to store, got a new tire and shopped. When I went to pick up the car, that is when I realized my ID was missing….Double Frak! I head to Emmies house and we go to the stores. On my way there I am about to call Amanda and ask her if she has my ID when Matthew calls. Yep He had my ID – he took it out for the wedding (what a good guy) but boy did I feel like I was losing it b/c I could not for the life of me remember taking it out. lol. With that out of the way, the day was much better.
I came home, watched a movie, and then proceeded to finish the curtains for jon. Made muffins and then went to sleep.

Sooooo after all that, I’m alright, alive and well. Now I’m just waiting for the results of my paper. If I recieve a phone call, I failed and have to retake them. If I don’t recieve a phone call, I’ll receive a letter in the mail (at my parents house) and that means I’ve passed. Here’s hoping for the snail mail. If anyone lives in tampa please do not call me from an 813 number that I don’t have…I really don’t want to have a panic attack – k?

Alright that’s about it – Now I have to get ready for ALA – I leave on Thursday! Joy!
