No motivation

I know that now that the wedding is over, I'm supposed to focus on school and be really motivated since I have nothing to distract me. But this is not the case. I am very distracted... by everything. And I have no motivation. To do anything.

I've been at work for 7 hours, and I have written 4 sentences of homework. Granted, I have been productive in other ways, but still. 4 sentences. Not good. And tonight is the first Amazing Race episode! AND tuesday night dinner with Kirst and Nathan. So I won't really get much done tonight homework-wise. The scary part is I'm not really too concerned about it. I think it's really time for me to be done school. This is kind of getting out of hand.

To celebrate my lack of caringness for school, I will post fun pictures of Kristen's Bachelorette party.

This Sucks

My sister is leaving. Again. And I don't know when I'll see her again.

The wedding was amazing. I couldn't have had a better time. Well, that's not true. It would have been a lot more fun (and there would have been a lot fewer tears) if I didn't have to say good bye to them both today.

I love Kristen and Jordan so much, and it's really hard to think about what my life will be like without them in it. I know they're not dying, but the fact that I will probably see them once or twice a year is pretty horrible.

I don't really know how to deal with it. I'll try.

Kristen and Jordan's Amazing Race to the Altar

This weekend has had so many elements that I couldn't even begin to tell you every one of them. BUT, the giant surprise bachelor/bachelorette party went very well. The fact that Kristen and Jordan spent the entire night before in the airport just added to the fun! Here are a couple of pics of the race, and more news about the everything later.

Trying to think of something besides the wedding...

For realsies, I can think of one thing and one thing only. MY SISTER IS GETTING MARRIED IN 9 SLEEPS! I rarely write in all capitals, so you KNOW I'm excited about this!

People at school keep saying "I'll see you after the wedding! You'll have to tell me all about it" and other people around are like "oh my gosh you're getting married??" and I answer in the most excited voice ever "no, but my SISTER is!" and these people look at me like "umm, you're THAT excited about a wedding that's not even your own?"

Well, the answer is YES YES YES I'm THAT excited about a wedding that isn't even my own. Think about it... I get ALL the thrill of the wedding, yet I don't have to BE MARRIED! It's all about the party!!!! And yes, for those who are growing concerned, I DO realize it's not MY day and I won't steal any kind of thunder from Kristen, so don't fret.

I am MORE than happy to sleep-over the night before to keep her sane, to shove food in her mouth so that she doesn't starve and pass out, to tie a bib around her while she's drinking her coffee so that when she spills, it's on her bib and not her dress (yes, WHEN she spills), stand beside her at the altar holding her boquet and a fistfull of kleenex, ready to hand it over if she starts crying, make sure her dress is organized for when she does the walk out with her new husband, and smile pretty for the pictures so that she can look back years to come and remember that I was there, next to her, on HER special day.

So yes, I'm excited.

My mind...

... is not where it should be. I think I have to forget about the whole wedding until Friday, because I have to pull out an amazing paper for Friday... This HAS to be good because my prof pulled the whole "I had such high expectations for you Heather and this doesn't show your potential" card. I hate the guilt trips... Oh well. It'll happen.

And then, after Friday, I'm FREE (for a week) and I get to relax and have fun!

Special Birthday Edition of Foto Friday!

I don't know if it's weird that I'm posting a picture of Jordan on his birthday, because I'm not his fiancee or anything, but I thought since this picture is so great, that I'd post it anyways! (I'll add for his benefit that he isn't actually drunk in this picture, he just did it for my and Kristen's amusement.) Happy Birthday, soon to be Brother-In-Law. If I HAVE to have a brother, I'm glad it's you! You make me laugh lots and lots and I'm excited to chill with you again soon. And you better take good care of my sister, because you don't want to have to deal with the wrath of Heather!! (Remember that time I pushed you really hard when I found out that you proposed to Kristen? That was just a taste of what I'm capable of!) I never really realized how much we used to hang out together, You, Me, Kristen and that other guy, but now that you and Kristen are gone, it's very sad and lonely. I make due... but it will be nice to have you here, even if it's for a short week.

Anyways, Happy Birthday, and I hope to see you double fisting when you're back!

Again?!

I think I am sick. Wasn't I just sick two weeks ago? Yes, yes I was. I'm hacking like an 80 year old smoker, and I feel really tired. (I actually just took a little nap here at work... I'm lucky that no one caught me!) My mum says that it's because I was "out galavanting till all hours of the night" this weekend, but I felt FINE this weekend! I felt fine all week before! What's going on now that I'm coughing like crazy and falling asleep everytime I try to study for my exam that's in 6 and a half hours?

I really hope it isn't anything serious... because I have a HUGE few weeks coming up. This is lame. Someone come over here and fix me please! And while you're at it, wanna take my exam for me?

Yuk.

Sexy bitches, oh yes...

This weekend I did SO much yet I feel like I got so little accomplished. I DID do a lot for a certain extravaganza, but as far as school work, I think that is the order for today.

Friday night us sexy bitches* went to Ceile's, an irish "pub" aka a club for people who don't want to go to clubs. It was very fun, and Katie got a LITTLE bit wild. She decided we were going to have a photo shoot in the middle of the bar, and things got a little crazy. I went there in the first place because a guy I work with invited me to go (not the secret crush guy, in case anyone was wondering, though I could have a secret crush on this guy too... SO NICE)... It's nice to see people that you don't normally see outside of a certain environment OUT of that environment. A girl who works at the equipment room came too, so it was like a KNES staff reunion!

Last night, us even sexier bitches went to the Weaselhead, (kind of a dive but still fun) and then, just because we could, Vaness and I went to the Rusty Cage. Now, anyone who knows me, and/or lives by me knows the Rusty Cage. (It's right by my house, and in the weirdest place in my opinion.) I have only been there once before, a LONG time ago, and it was definitely not the kind of place that twenty-somethings go to hang out. BUT, some people were telling us that it was fun, so at 1:00 am we decided to move the party. V and I walk in, and it's a full on club almost! There were beer tub girls, shooter girls, a live band, and it was packed! I would have NEVER guessed that that was what it was like in there. All the people were around our age, and it was seriously SO fun! Besides the weird-o's saying "Now you have a good night sweetheart" as they walk out... ummm, yeah, I will, thanks, there were some fun people there, and it wasn't half bad! Weird night I'll say though... Not what I had expected!

That was my weekend... Today is homework day, maybe I'll eat a chip in dip during the superbowl at some point... Get ready for Grey's Anatomy, and then think spanish all night since I have a presentation tomorrow. Hopefully this week goes by without too many hitches because it's chock (chaulk?) -full of projects and tests.

Only 2 more weeks until Kristen and Jordan are back!!! I can't wait!

*The whole bitches thing is a thing from BSD (or bermuda shorts day, for those non u of c people)... and never in my life will I forget Jordan saying "Kristen, I wanna stay up and drink with the giiiiiirrrrllllsssssss"... Funniest thing ever. Well not EVER, because you really can't beat the grilled cheese thing. But close. Oh Jordan... How I miss your craziness.

Free iPod??

Apparently this website will send you a free iPod if you complete the steps is says on the website. "What do I have to loose?" I thought. So I signed up for the stupid thing, and completed the first step, and I just found out that I need "Five friends to sign up, and we'll send you your iPod". So what am I supposed to do now? Well, if any of you are so inclined, you can follow this link and be one of my five friends. You shouldn't have to pay anything, because I sure didn't... I think you just have to find the one that you don't have to pay for. I don't know. Try it if you'd like, and I would be forever greatful. If you don't, I forgive you.

The Hour

So I find out George is coming to U of C on Monday and Tuesday! I was all stoked to get some tickets, but they're SOLD OUT! Come on! How cool would it be to sit in the audience of the hour??? I potentially could still go if I covered it for the Gauntlet, but I'm sure someone snapped that story up already, and I haven't written for the Gauntlet in ages. Oh well, maybe I'll see George coming into Mac Hall or something. Maybe he'll be in the mood for a squash game!
