August 31st

I wonder when I'll actually need to start using shampoo daily again. Because right now I'm just using soap.

I'm going home for the weekend! I'm actually getting home Friday afternoon and coming back Monday night. Yay Labor Day!

Seeking: Occasion to wear my Portal earrings.

Today is a day in which I didn't think of anything interesting to put on my blog.

August 29th

That awkward moment when the lady at the front desk tells you that your package arrived and to come back for it in a little bit when the paperwork is processed, and then when you come back there's a new front desk lady who says you don't have a package and even checks in the back for it but there's no package for you.

I was gonna write this thing in here about how I've been perceived since shaving my head, but I feel kinda meh right now and don't want to. But basically, you know when you get a normal haircut and everyone comments? Well, when you shave your head, nobody comments because they all think you have cancer and don't want to point out your lack of hair. It's quite weird. Also, life without head hair is VERY cold. Literally.

Doctah Who last weekend was brilliant, by the way. God bless River Song.

August 28th

The internet here randomly dies every half an hour or so, and doesn't come back for a long time, so I figured I would do this now and quickly before it decides to fail again.

This has been me all day...

Happy August 27th! I'm about to watch the new Doctor Who episode!

I shaved my head. For real. It's shorter than I wanted it, but it'll grow in quickly, I hope.
Just call me Voldemort.

August 26th

I watched The Graduate today, in preparation for the new episode of Doctor Who that airs tomorrow. It was actually a really lovely movie, and super funny. I think I might watch Easy A tonight, and then A Good Man Goes to War tomorrow afternoon. God bless the weekend.

August 24th

Another uneventful day of having only one class. I'm Skyping my darling sister now. She says hi!

I'm all done with my reading and I am tired as all get out. I took a nap earlier but I had really awful dreams so I didn't get any rest.

Sleepy time now or...?

August 23rd

Do you ever just want to shave off all of your hair and get a fresh start? Because that's the kind of mood I'm in. Thoughts?

August 22nd

Sorry for the absolute shit post yesterday.

So today was the first day of class, but I only had one class. It's called "Intro to Parents and Children" and it fulfills some requirement, but I also think it will just be good information for the future. Tomorrow I have the rest of my classes, which are:
Intro to Ethnic Studies
Indians of the Americas
and Intro to Speech Pathology and Audiology.

All of my classes start with the letter I, I've just noticed.
My speech class is the first class I have to take for my major (Communication Sciences and Disorders) and it's from 5-8 PM every Tuesday. That's a three hour class. During dinnertime.


I read the required summer reading today in one sitting. Since I didn't know I was going here until about five days ago, I didn't know there was a required reading. But it was about a Native American boy, so I figured I'd need to have read it for at least two of my classes. But it was a very quick read; it only took about two hours and it was ~230 pages long. And really hilarious. It's called The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, and I'd definitely recommend it. And like I said, it's a quick read, so you have no excuse not to read it!

I think I'm going to end my night with a Disney movie. Not sure which one yet, though.

August 20th

I'm all moved in and settled. Also really bored. I'd forgotten how boring move-in day is. I wish I knew some people here. Also I'm going on very little sleep, so I need to be engaged. Anything? Anyone?

I just want to start classes. I know that sounds like the antithesis of my being, but seriously. I'm bored.

And the cafeteria isn't open, so that's ridiculous. I had to make myself a PB&J for dinner.

Oh, my closet is super large and luxurious though. Wanna see?

August 19th

I
AM
PACKIIIIIING

That's right. It's hectic here in the Kate household. Luckily, I'm going to spend an hour or two with friends tonight to de-stress...and then come back and stress out some more.

I have to leave the house at 7:15 AM tomorrow.
So I have to get up at like
5:00 AM.
WHAT WHY HOW

Collegiate updates to follow!

August 18th

I'm registered for classes! I have a roommate! And a room! And I bought my school supplies!

I also got up at 5:30 AM to accomplish all of this and I am SO TIRED.


I can't believe I move in on Saturday.

August 17th

This week has been beyond hectic. I found out where I'm going to school about two days ago, and I move in on the 20th, which is this Saturday. I'm really tired and stressed out at the moment, basically. I'm going to register for classes and get my dorm assignment tomorrow as well. (At least I can say with a good amount of confidence that no matter who my roommate is this year, she will be better than last year's intolerable, vacant-headed bitch of a roommate.) I'm also getting my hair cut tomorrow night, so that's all right. At Juut (my hair salon of choice), you always get a short massage beforehand, as well as cucumber water. So that will be nice and relaxing.

Today is a good day.

I started a new game of Pokémon Pearl tonight. I've never played a Gen IV Pokémon game, so this ought to be exciting. (Also disappointing because Gen V is so good.)

I am a hungry hungry hippo.

Come one, come all! See my hair, in really poor lighting!

August 13th

So, how much did I enjoy the new episode of iCarly?
A WHOLE LOT, THAT'S HOW MUCH.
Seriously you guys, I adore that show.

Anyway, I didn't get a chance to take a picture of my hair yet. I'm still trying to get used to it. I like it a lot but it's so much darker than I'm used to! Other people seem to like it though, and it's definitely growing on me. I don't know if I'm still allowed to say I'm a ginger though, because it's not really "natural" looking red anymore...it's like five colors in one. Like...red-purple-brown-black. (Okay, so four colors.)

My dad's taking me and my sister to church tomorrow morning. I haven't been to church in like six months, for a Christmas service. (Actually, I might have gone at Easter.) But we're going to the church I went to like four years ago. It's really big and ominous and mostly full of old people. So we'll see how that goes.

Sorry for the lame entry yesterday. I planned to write before I left the house, but ran out of time.

My hair is currently changing colors. Again. Yes, now it's going to be a dark cherry red. That way my roots won't show up so badly. Plus i bought this amazing John Freida foam that smells really good and went on really easily, so hopefully it colors well too! I'll have a picture up soon, I promise.

I also bought wax for my legs that I'm planning on using tomorrow. I have a pretty high pain tolerance for hair plucking though, so I ought to be fine...right?

I'm currently playing Nurse Kate for a wisdom tooth-free friend.

My congratulatory Pottermore email came today! Now we wait for the site to open to beta testers. Asasfasfnsdghs I'm so excited.

My current jam: I Wanna Go - Britney Spears

I am hardcore craving some cereal right now. I had a delicious hoagie a few hours ago and now all I can think about is cereal. Sigh.

August 9th

Sorry for the lame entry yesterday. I forgot to blog before I left and I didn't get home until like 3:00 AM, so...better lame than nothing at all, right?

I think tonight I shall play Pokémon White, watch QI, and eat some Kit Kats. Typical Tuesday night for Kate, I'd say.

Also I need to clean my room. :/

I'm at a bonfire! It's really warm. But it smells good. :)

Sunday, August 7, 2011

August 7th

Where's my Pottermore welcome email, huh? I want it now please.

So I was once again remarkably sick today, and instead of cleaning, I napped and felt miserable. I'm feeling a bit better now though, and I just beat my mom at Scattergories. (Which, by the way, is one of my favorite games and if you - yes, you - and I ever hang out we should play it.)

I'm going to a bonfire tomorrow. I love bonfires. :D

August 6th

I've been 19 for an entire month now. Wow. I've done so much with my newfound oldness, it's incredible. /sarcasm

I hate having a cold. Have I mentioned this yet? Well, I do. I hate that my nose won't stop running and that I keep coughing and my whole body aches.

I need to clean my room tomorrow. Someone should cal me and yell at me and make me do it. Followers, I'm talking to you.

Friday, August 5, 2011

August 5th

I have a cold. A full-blown cold. Luckily, I now also have Mucinex D. But still, how lame to have a cold when it's summer. (Although it's lame anytime, really.)

I have rediscovered the joy of making fruit smoothies. Orange juice + mango = delicious.

Pottermore registration is closed and I want to access the site NOW. Please and thank you.

I bought new nail polish today. I don't know if any of you are familiar with the On Stranger Tides collection from OPI, but I finally got to go to Ulta today and I got two colors. OPI is one of those brainds that's really worth the extra cost. It's really good. Also, I love the name they come up with. The ones I got today are "Skull and Glossbones" (light gray) and "Steady As She Rose"(rose, of course).

Someone I like today: David Tennant

Happy Esther Day! Do you know about Esther? You should. You should also buy an Esther bracelet. And don't forget to tell your family that you love them!

I love all of my new Tumblr and Facebook friends.
I mean, I really just love friends.
But new friends are really groovy.

It's sort of crazy that it's August, huh?

August 1st

I got into Pottermore! What a feeling of elation. Everyone on Tumblr was going mental. I wrote this little gem about my username at about 4:30 AM:


"let me tell you why I love my pottermore username.
okay, so my username is IcePatronus172. You know how in chapter 19 of DH, The Silver Doe, the Patronus leads Harry to the frozen pond? Frozen pond made of ice? The Ice Patronus, the one that led Harry to the ice, was the silver doe - Snape’s Patronus.
MY USERNAME IS SNAPE’S PATRONUS, OKAY."

So yeah, I basically love my username. And that I get to be a beta tester. And everything.
