So I'm at the park with my one of the besties, Ashley and what happens? We find ourselves in the midst of a really cheesy rom-com.  Let me set the scene a little:

Setting:  Breezy day, overcast but not gloomy.  Fairly windy. Public Park

Enter: Sorority chick (costume: triple extra large v-neck american apparel depicting a sorority sponsored event and some white shorts) and boyfriend (aggie uniform - maroon t-shirt and jean shorts).

In hand, the two have a kite.  Yes, a kite.  Now I'm just as cynical as the next single girl so let me ask you this, what is so fun about sitting down and holding a string and watching the dang kite just float?!? Well anyway, after about 20 minutes they finally got it up.  and then they just sat there.  Her with her arms around her knees holding the kite and him with his arm around her.  And that's it.  That's all they did.  Now, Ashley says that it is SOOOO ROMANTIC, but I just don't get it.  Maybe I'm emotionally stunted but they literally sat there for like an hour.  DOING NOTHING.  Do you not have finals to prepare for?!  Oh and to make them just that much more adorable, they left in a VW bug. He drove.

Am I crazy? Or was that just a little too cheesy???

Home Stretch

Okey, so here's the breakdown:
1 take home test that is 8 pages to finish by 2:00PM tomorrow
1 Take home test that consists of 3, 2-3 page (double spaced) essays Due tomorrow by 11:59 PM
1 online test that is 40 questions with 25 minutes to take it in available after Wednesday.

What does this mean??? It means that by Wednesday night, I will be DONESKIES with my Junior year of college.  Seriously?! Seriously!!!!

Just a Spruce

I thought I'd spruce up the blog a tad! It's been the same for quite awhile!  I decided to go with the paris theme because 1) I am OBSESSSSSSED with ALL THINGS PARIS and 2) I WILL BE IN PARIS IN A MONTH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Can we please just focus on that for a second?! In one month, the sister will be graduated and we will be hanging out in London and Paris like the little jet setters we aspire to be!!!!!!

The past few weekends have been a whirlwind of stuff!!! So I've got my last few days of classes and placement left and with that means like a thousand projects..... Oh how I hate projects.  On the plus side, all of my finals are either online or take home tests!! whoop!!! :)  SO that means I won't have to waste valuable time studying!  So the last two weekends I've gone home to San Antonio to spend time with the family as well as see some friends.  Jessica and I have been spending more and more time together when I'm home which is always super fantastic and then there is all the fun partying I get to do there now!!
While the last few weekends have been all about fun, this weekend was jam packed with stuff!  Friday I subbed which wasn't too terrible actually! And then I got ready for Aggie Relay for Life.  This is an event that I truly love! It is an event put on by the American Cancer Society and the whole 12 hour event mirrors the cancer diagnosis and treatment.  When you start the night at 7PM, you are pumped and strong and ready to spend 12 hours awake, just like when you are first diagnosed with cancer, you have strength and are determined to beat it.  As the night goes on, or as treatment goes on, it gets tough to keep going, your legs are sore from walking, you're tired, it's freaking cold and windy and you just can't get warm, your spirit lessens as well as your strength.  Then as you see dawn, you see that you aren't that far away from the finish line.  It's such a beautiful experience and I got to spend it with such an amazing group of people!!! It definitely makes me sad that this could be my last spring semester at A&M :(

Then when I came home in the wee hours Saturday morning, I slept till 1 and then tried to be productive....I got some homework done, and one load of laundry (of like 5 to be done...). Then Ashley came over with some pints of coldstone (could she be any better??) and we watched Friends and had girl time!

Then, a group of boys asked me to come over for some drinks and that if I came over, they'd watch the meteor shower with me!  So around 11 I went over and they're just always so much fun to hang out with! We ended up piling in a truck and going to the middle of nowhere to watch for meteors and guess what!  We actually saw some! And by some, I mean a bunch!!!!!! It was cold, but we were having so much fun trying to figure out if a slasher was going to come out of the woods and who was gonna die first, that we didn't notice how cold it was!

I'm happy with everything right now and can't believe that in 24 days, I'm leaving for LONDON!!!!!!!

Is This Real Life?

There have been very few opportunities in my life where I've literally just had to stop and think to myself, "Is this real life?"  Last weekend was one of those weekends.  My sister, is incredibly awesome and this whole thing just started because she tweeted.  Yes, we both tweet: (Follow me @hannah_lee {that is with ONE underscore})  I'm not going to give tons of details (sorry) because I don't want to get anyone in trouble! We got to go out with a bunch of guys who got us VIP service at a club in San Antonio.  Now what all does this include you might ask.  First of all, a reduced cover charge (that she and I did not pay).  And then we had bottle service with Patron and Grey Goose.  Not too shabby.  Right?  This was quite possibly the best weekend I've had in a LONG LONG while!  Needless to say, I'm smitten!!

Ring Day

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the traditions of Texas A&M University, Ring Day is kind of a big deal.  And by kind of I mean really.  At most universities, you can get your 'class ring' whenever.  That's cool.  It's just not how we do it here.  At A&M you have to earn your ring; you have to work your hiney off for your ring.  First of all, you have to complete 90 hours of classes with no more than 45 hours at a different college.  So you can't order it until you are classified as a senior.  You also have to be in good academic standing with the university.  Now these things aren't cheap.  So not only do you have to earn it, it's expensive!  Well I've waited two and a half years for this day and let me tell you I was excited!!!!
This whole process started back in January.  You have to go and get sized for your ring and order it.  Then you have to wait 3 grueling months to wake up at 6:00 am the Monday before you get your ring to register for a time to get it.  Which sounds easy, except the website crashed about 60983418702837056 times and took me and the bestie forEVER to get the right times!  But all that aside, I know have that little hunk of Aggie Bling!

The Family on Kyle Field 

One of the besties!! We both got our rings!
