186 days and counting



Today I signed up for the MCAT...

Best or worst thing I ever did? Guess I'll find out.


Jeff's banking on it being the be$t thing ;)

Suspenders, Roses, and Tucanos!





I know I'm a little late in posting these, but better late than never, right? The first few pictures are of a Halloween party me and Jeff went to, we couldn't find a costume that matched, so we gave up trying to be clever and just did the easiest thing, so I'm a gypsy and Jeff's a nerd, a pretty cute one too if I may say so. I lost the flour game, hence all the mess on my face...

The next picture is of my birthday, Jeff got me some nice glasses (I don't usually wear sun glasses in pictures, I promise) and some beautiful roses. The balloons were from mom :)

The last picture was of Jeff's birthday, we all went out to Tucanos, yummy. While we were there an awkward situation arose, and I know some of you think those are funny, so if you will indulge me...

Our server wasn't the best, she forgot water cups, was curt about coupons, and brought us our checks and asked us if there was anything else we wanted brought around one last time before we left, which usually isn't a big deal, but at an all you can eat buffet where a plate cost $30 and you're there for a birthday, you don't appreciate being rushed out.

In addition to the checks she also brought some electronic surveys, which I was glad to fill out. When it got to service, I choose the option of "unfriendly," however, at the end of the survey I also said I didn't want to speak to a manager, because that would be awkward, she wasn't horrible and I didn't want to ruin her night.

Well, not 30 seconds after I finish, the manager comes over and asks, "I saw on one of your surveys your service was 'unfriendly,' may I ask what happened?" (This is when I learned 'no' actually means 'yes,' go figure). I then told him how we were treated, with our server listening in at the table next to us. She then got chewed out right behind us...awkward. What was even more awkward, however, was our server continued to help us, because we weren't done with dinner, even if she had brought us our checks. Lesson learned; don't fill out a survey until you are walking out the door.

On a less uncomfortable note, but still kinda embarrassing, here's a video of me winning the donut game at the Halloween party :) (I knew my ability to consume at superhuman speeds would come in handy someday).

TEXAS!...a little late








Yay!!! Texas was a blast. Me, Dan, and Laugs went to the riverwalk, ate at taco taco, which is apparently the best taco shop in the nation, and of course enjoyed watching Danika play soccer. I was so proud, Danika even scored for me and Laugs, I wish I had a picture of that :)

Me and Laugs wanted to have Tiger spirit at her game, so we asked Dan if she had a t-shirt we could wear, and we weren't disappointed. This last picture is of a fraction of the t-shirts Danika offered, haha.

I'm so glad I could go visit Danika and see a little bit into what her life has been like for the last 4 years. Thanks to her and her lovely roommates and friends, I had such a blast :) And Abby, thanks again for staying sober ;)
