I Survived The Snowpocalypse

If you did not get hit by the epic ice storm, which was followed by mass amounts of snow, then consider yourself lucky…very lucky. The storm was apparently the biggest storm since 1982. Here are some pictures from people who have gotten hit by the storm.

The church might be on to something. I am ready for some hot weather, how about you?

God Bless the USA

Snowmen taking over the world! (Just imagine how long all of this took).

Lake Shore Drive at rush hour.

I will have to say, who every sculpted this, actually beholds great talent.

Two feet, outrageous! That will take a few days to melt just to get outside.

An ideal college alcohol storage unit. It can hold all you can drink, does not cost extra on your electricity bills, and it keeps the drinks ICE COLD!

Have you seen my Dodge Calliber?

What a great igloo that would be?

Real safe?

Chicago’s snow storm. It looks like a ghost town.

I hope you enjoyed the photos I found! If you would enjoy even more you can go here to the Snowpocalypse Website on Facebook. Also, if you would love to sport that you did in face survive the storm you can order a t-shirt like the one shown below. It’s only $16.00.

On To The Next.

Its been a week practically since my first day here at my new university in Kentucky, and I absolutely love it. Let me break down the last seven days for you.

School started on Friday, (why it was a must to start on Friday, beats me). My first class ever at my new institution was canceled due to inclement weather, (I wrote about this about three or four posts ago). I then only had three more classes until my first full day was complete, well those three classes turned out to be two. One of my professors could not make it to class due to the weather, so my first day turned out to be wonderful.

The next day I moved in. My family drove down to help me bare the load that was ahead of my to trudge up three flights of stairs. The dorm room was greatly smaller than my previous one, and it felt like that nothing was going to fit. I ended up stacking my bed on cinder blocks, not just one, but three. My bed sat up high enough for me to fit my fridge, shelf, and other storage bins underneath it. Finally I had the space that I was needing. My roommate even loved how I had my bed that she did the same thing. Who would of ever though the usefulness of cinder blocks? Now my roommate and I pray every time we get in and out of bed that one of those cinder blocks don’t slide, God that would be the day.

Oh my roommate! For those of you that know me, one of my first words to her the first night I stayed there was, “Just so you know, I’m a creep, and I am just like the girl in the new upcoming movie Roommate. I might even already have your name as a tattoo.” Classic move by me. She is great! She plays volleyball here at the school, and helps manage the basketball team. Her boyfriend even goes to school back in my hometown, (small world right?).We get along perfectly so far. We watch the same shows, and share the same interests. We even found a great infatuation with Teen Mom and Wife Swap. I teach her to work out, since she does not exactly know what to do in the gym. She is great to be around, and she has been so great with helping me around campus and introducing me to new people. She has been the perfect roommate.

School for the most part is great, but I know that I am going to have my work cut out for me. I am taking Microeconomics, Art History, Environmental Science (with lab included), History of World Civilization, and Intro to Psychology. However, yet again today classes were canceled because of the snow. Oh, how I am loving the snow, because two of my classes got canceled due to it. I could get used to this, (even though I know Spring is right around the corner, let me live in the snowy moment).

Now for the people! Everyone at this school so far is wonderful. I love the new coach, I love the girls on the team, and I love everyone else. The people here in Kentucky are some of the sweetest people that I have ever come across. Everyone made this move prove to me that this was the right choice. They are so welcoming and I feel like I have gone here since the beginning. The girls on the team are wonderful, and I can already tell that I will fit in just fine. All of us are excited about the upcoming season, a new coach, new players, and a whole new attitude. I honestly can not wait until practice, which by the way starts tomorrow.

So as you can tell life is going great for me exceptionally well.

Starbucks: Brings Me Here To You

My life at the moment has been busy beyond belief. I just officially got enrolled into my new university as of yesterday, and classes start today. On Wednesday night I packed my life away. I was up until three in them morning stuffing clothes and other belongings into tubs and boxes. I did this only to wake up at six to pack the car and departure for Kentucky. As nice as my family is to me, my father woke up my younger brothers from their snow day off to make them help me load up the car.

When I left my house there was already an inch of snow on the ground, and we were expecting six. Well let me tell you, we received six inches alright, and I drove through every bit of it. I had to practically clean out my pants when I almost slid into the back of a semi that was starting to jack-knife.

I luckily arrived at school and got everything squared away. I found out my roommate, who was not expecting a roommate, so when I met her and our room her stuff was everywhere. She even had her clothes in my closet and both beds pushed together to make one big bed. I did not mind, actually I found it quite humorous. We did pounce her about her receiving a roommate, so the room being a mess was understandable. She is a sweetheart and I think we will work out great. I also found out my classes, which are not as bad as I expected, but not fantastic either. All of my classes are held on MWF, except for one. My work load is going to be a hassle, but hopefully I can deal with it. Everyone at the University is so kind and helpful with everything. They certainly made me feel welcome.

I do have an eight o’clock class, which I don’t mind. I like getting my classes out of the way. I got up early this morning to go to my eight o’clock Intro to Psychology. Well once there I was informed that classes were canceled until nine due to the snow. Thank you six inches of snow I drove through, I knew you could come through to be a positive for me. Now that I had plenty of time since my next class was not until ten! So to kill time I drove around until I found a Starbucks! That is what brings me here to you, I love Starbucks for their wifi. So until my ten o’clock I will slowly sip on my caramel frap while eating a breakfast sandwich.

This day is looking good for me already, so lets hope it continues.
