Planning for Next Year

That's Hot

I think I am going to buy a Halloween costume the week after Halloween so then I will have an insentive to do something fun next year. I have been trying to think for the last week and can't seem to remember what the heck I did last Halloween. I really wish I could remember. But that tells me that next year I need to try harder. Because I decided that 25 is the official age that Halloween goes out the window. You become the woman handing out candy or taking your kids trick or treating. So if I dont have kids by 25 (knock on wood) then I will be sitting on my front porch somewhere 5 years from now passing out tootsie rolls to Hannah Montana and Little Jack Sparrow. Before 20 you can still go out trick or treating...after that you have to do the party thing...and seeing as how I'm not much for parties...what will I do? I don't know. But I'll be wearing a marked down costume while I'm doing it. Then I think...a year from now...I'll have a new boyfriend, and a new job (call me ambitious). I'll be going to a new college. A lot will have changed. I better make it a good costume...haha.

You said it, Bart.

Wow! I just got done taking my algebra test and I feel quite elated. My teacher gave me a few helpful (obvious) hints and I think I did quite well. It was down in the forties last night so today has been quite chilly. I felt quite Christmasy all day so I decided to make a cd for christmas rather than putting the song on my ipod. If they're on my ipod then I'll just have to remove them after New Years and that sounds pretty depressing. So here they are in case you want to make one of your own.

They are all you need for alittle Christmas cheer! (And the Lord of course):
~Merry Christmas-NSYNC(yep)
~Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas-(Judy Garland) But really anyone can sing the best Christmas song every written!
~Oh Holy Night-Mariah Carey
~All I want for Christmas is You-Again, Mariah (We love her)
~Baby, It's cold outside-Zooey Deschanel from the movie Elf sing this song magnificently.

That's all for now. Can't wait.
But I'm off to do some Humanities homework before I have to leave.

PS: 28+17=45 days until the massacre (semester) is over. The 28 and 17 day intervals are the time between which I will be going to visit Leah to cool my jets...see below.

Phi Theta Kappa

Today I handed in my money for PHI THETA KAPPA. I am an official member. Cool. If you don't know what it is, it is an international honor society for two-year colleges. I'm not really sure what it entails but I know there are a bunch of scholorship opportunities and discounts on books and supplies. I just really wanted to join something that could go on my record as being very academic and showing my gpa. You have to have a 3.5 to join and I have a 3.75 so I'm pretty happy with that. The ceremony for induction is thursday and you have to dress up and take pictures with your certificate and stuff. But I know mom and dad have to work because I didn't tell them I was joining and Thursday is pretty last-minute. I didn't want to tell them because I wasn't sure I could get the money ($70) in to the office on time. I will tell them tonight.

I'm going to study for my algebra test tomorrow. Not looking forward to it. I feel braindead already from today's classes. Exponential Functions and Vertical and Hoizontal Asymptopes. Should be an interesting test of my knowledge. ;(

Leah and I were blogging at the same time. I just checked hers because I'm still learning about mine and there she is! Anyway, since I had last said that I always find things out about my sisters by reading their blogs because I don't get to talk to them as much as I would like to...wait...side note...I feel bad calling Leah because every time I call her someone is crying and I feel like I am being a hassle, which is why I am going to call her in an hour because on her blog I just read that she is putting the kids to bed. This is perfect! Anyway, I was going to list some things no one really knows about me because things like that are supposed to be compelling.

Here goes:
~I am compulsive about door-locking at night. I check all three doors and the alarm at least 3 times before I go to bed. (like open, close, lock, unlock, lock, half-unlock...)
~Sometimes I can't sleep because I am worried about my cat dying. I wonder when he'll die. haha. That's so terrible. I just love him so much I don't want him to die.
~Whenever I see that commercial for the Humane Society with Sarah McClauclin in it and she's singing "in the arms of the angel" and it shows all those battered animals, I go and find my dog and give her treats without making her sit, shake and lay down first. Just because. ;)
~I worry that I am gonna get caught for illegal download of music so I do it at my friends houses.
~In the past five months I have been seen by 5 different doctors for all different things. And I'm very healthy!
~Today I saw these three sisters 14, 15, and 20 years old fighting at church in front of everyone. It was embarassing. And it made me miss my sisters.
~Today I told my mom that I only want 2 kids and she said "ONLY TWO!!!" haha. Like 3 is that much more!
~I set 3 alarm clocks all 3 minutes apart every night before bed because I worry that one of them will malfunction.
~I kind of want to join the Air Force.

My First Blog & Post

This is how geeky I am. I wanted to think of an interesting URL for my blog so that when my older sisters (who also blog) asked for my URL I could say "..." and they would be impressed with my quirky thinking abilities. So I thought long and hard (that's what she said) and then I thought, Urban Dictionary! Yes! So I looked up "redhead" on urban dictionary and came up with "ginger". And if you are new to urban dictionary, they always give you a funny little sentence or lengthy and often unnecessary explanation of the word. So the last sentence in the defenition of "ginger" was'

The condition, "gingervitis" is genetic and incurable'.

Perfect! http://Get-Gingervitis.blogspot.comI decided to start a blog because I am so super-stressed out in college right now that the thought of having to decided on where to go for my Bachelor's degree is freaking me out while I have had to come to terms with the fact that my social life is going down the drain. A lot going on. Also, I am often shocked at all the new things I learn about my sisters' lives by reading their blogs so I thought I would shock them right back. Except I can't think of anything shocking...I went to Busch Gardens yesterday...;)
