Life with Pam

I'm back!
It was 7 A.M. and I was running late for a mini cram session right before my neuroscience exam. I looked over and saw that I had one Snapple left (one delicious Snapple left). So I grabbed it and placed it in the net pouch on the side of my backpack. I headed to the restroom and placed my stuff on the bench outside; when I was done, I swung my backpack, and in slow motion I saw my last precious Snapple suicide jump from my backpack to the cold, hard floor.  My beautiful Snapple shattered to pieces on the bathroom floor. The tea and glass slowly took over half of the community bathroom floor. Watching the puddle spread across the tile, my heart dropped a little inside. My beloved Snapple (that I was supposed to be enjoying right before my exam) was dead. After standing there for a moment, I thought: Is this foreshadowing my exam?


Why tell y’all this story?
I haven’t been posting on my blog. I know I’ve been slacking, so I thought you guys would enjoy laughing a little at the mess I’ve been this week. But, thankfully all my exams are over now, so I can finally start posting!

Now for the real blog post…. Dun. Dun. DUNNNNNNNNNN.

So, this blog post will be a little different. Why?
I’m going to get you guys super pumped for some future blog post that are soon to come!
You ready?
1) I got some bangs! Yes, I went back to the good old days. Not the Dora phase but some side bangs!
2) I’m going to CALIFORNIA! WOOHOO! I’m super pumped. I’m going with my best friends Addison, Grace, and Kassidy!
3) I’m going camping… yes, you heard that right. Pam out there in the wild. I’ve been out in the wild before but definitely not like out there out there to the point where I’m sleeping outside. I like to consider myself a nice city girl (and everyone else will back that up).
4) I just wanted to say a small shout out to Mason. Chris, you’re a stud.
5) There’s much, much more that you’ll just have to wait for. :)

Lastly, I just wanted to say thank you for everyone that has been reading my blog! I reached 3,000 views! :)

20 minute walksI happen to live on the edge of my university, and since it takes me millions and millions of years to get to my classes that are on the complete other side of campus, I read. Yes, I do read while I walk. Sounds a bit odd, but if I might add, I've gotten pretty good at it. I haven't even hit a tree, student, car, professor, building, etc. Anyways, let me get back to my story... So, on one of my many adventures to the Science Building, aka my second home (I should probably just build a tent and sleep there), I was reading.  Then I came to a sudden stop since I came to a street. I put my book down, looked both ways, crossed the street, and once I had crossed... I picked my book right back up and continued reading.
"HEY!" this guy yelled at me.
I looked over and then he continued, "Want to know how I got this?"
At this moment he was pointing at his limp leg.
I asked him, "How?"
Then he went to explain on how he had been in a car accident.
"I'm so sorry..." I replied.
Then, he asked what my book was called.
"This is What Happy Looks Like," I responded.
He pointed at his leg.
"Do you think this is what happy looks like? Have a nice day," he said...
... and disappeared.

Finally back in my dorm after a very long day of just overall insanity. For some reason I feel like this semester is going to be life changing. I can't explain why but I just have this feeling. So far, it's been a good start, obviously keeping in mind it has only been the first day. I think the reason why is that I've set goals for myself this semester.
1. Sleeping is KEY
2. Meeting new people (Actually introducing myself rather than walking the other way)
3. Coffee is a must but control is also. (5 or 6 cups a day... a bit much...Keeping it more at 2)
4. Not just focusing on studying but on creating memories especially since we still have to live our life and not just live under a textbook.
"In between goals is a thing called life, that has to be lived and enjoyed" - Sid Caesar
5. Having more quiet time in the morning and or at night to be able to escape all the craziness and just focus on all the blessings I have in my life.

My over all main goal is to "Dance first". Think Later. It's the natural order." - Samuel Beckett

(By the way, if you're wondering where I got my awesome socks... the bookstore. Yes, they are extremely soft and once you put them on... your feet will thank you.)

Day before all the madness
Tomorrow, I start my second semester of college! I'm super excited since I feel like last semester was a complete learning experiencing especially since everything was so new. First college semester, new friends, dorm life (which includes the horrors of community bathrooms), new clubs, new classes, and I can go on forever about how new everything was. But, even though I made a whole bunch of errors, I wouldn't change a thing about it since now I'm well prepared for this one to come. Today, I told myself that I wouldn't pressure myself since it is the day before classes. I got some school supplies, watch Grey's Anatomy (probably way too many episodes but it was definitely worth it!), started reading a romance book called This is what happy looks like by Jennifer E. Smith (once I'm done, I'll post a review), and then had a meet up with some of my friends at the one and only IHop! I'm determined to go to bed early tonight since I have to be up bright and early tomorrow since I have to pick up a couple books before my class starts at 9:05 a.m. Can't wait to see what crazy journey this semester has for me. Only God knows! :)
