you may say i'm a dreamer, but i'm not.
don't talk about it, be about it.
g-ma: you have entirely too much hair, girlfriend. how many boxes of dye did you use?
me: just one
g-ma: i can tell. it was only enough for the bottom. it's brown at the top and blonde at the ends!
me: i did that on purpose. it's called 'ombre'
g-ma: ... ... (looks very confused) ... ombre?? that's spanish for bandit or outlaw or something!
me: no. it's like gradient.
g-ma: well i'm just gonna give you my belk card and you can do with it as you please. please do something with it!
me: did you switch your vote up too?
g-ma: no? what do you mean?
me: well chris just switched to romney-
g-ma: he's so backwards! he doesn't know his ass from a hole in the ground! always saying one thing then doing the other
me: well he said y'all had talked about it and you'd said romney wouldn't be so bad
g-ma: (looking extremely offended) I SAID NO SUCH THING! i said if he gets elected everyone will see he's full of shit then they'll hopefully wise up and make room for hilary! you just wait til your brother gets home! (walks out, comes back 5 mins later) now like i said, you feel free to get the works done at the salon. you're such a *good* girl!
me: (silently) favorite grandchild.
i had my last ever class in a college classroom (assuming i never go back to get my masters/ doctorate) yesterday. it lasted about 5 minutes- really the only way to go out.
i also spent 6 hours of the day before that working on the last real paper of my bachelor’s degree education. it was 40 pages, and better be fruitful of an “A”.
i ALSO went and met with my supervisor for my internship- she’s awesome, and not solely because her name is Jen. i got a nice little briefing on my budget, schedule, expectations, and that i’ll be reimbursed for gas and any other related expenses. we’re meeting with the PR girls that I’ll be working closely with (Flock and Rally if you’re familiar) next friday evening for drinks. i got offered another internship today, also unpaid- ya snooze, ya lose.
i spent most of today driving around lexington and west columbia applying for part-time jobs to pay for my internship and to just have some money. so we’ll see how that goes.
now i must study for the exam that i have at 9 AM tomorrow, and start the take-home exam that’s due by 5 tomorrow. kthxbye.
