Today? Today was fantastic
. I didn't have my Media Production class this morning: we're in the process of working on our second video projects (an interview + interesting footage of someone we know) and today was classified as a "work day" for us to do some shooting and/or planning. Since my partner is doing all the filming this weekend (and then we'll edit it together), we didn't need the work day. So I slept until noon, and then made French toast for breakfast.
I did have class at four, so I did eventually get up and get going. I left the apartment around 3:30 so I could catch the bus in time. Unfortunately, I missed getting to the bus that was already there by mere minutes, but I had enough time before the next bus came (about 5 minutes) to visit the on campus ATM - Grandma (Dad's mom) sent me a $30 check for Valentine's Day! I was running low on money and needed to make a Meijer run soon, so it was much appreciated. I just finished at the ATM when the bus pulled up. Headed to my International Relations class, which is always fun; the professor is great and I'm learning a lot. However, I noticed on the bus ride back that I could only hear out of one ear of my headphones. They've been acting up lately (the wire from the headphones to the plug keeps getting pulled out unintentionally), but that wasn't the problem. So I have to go out and buy new ones, even though the ones I have now are only a few months old - in fact, I bought them while I was here at college.
So I was pretty bummed about my headphones, because I almost always have them on when I'm out, but things got better when I got home. Mommy sent me a belated Valentine's Day card (which of course made me cry), as well as $10 in cash and a $25 Meijer gift card (for groceries). AWESOME, RIGHT? So now I don't really have to choose between paying off my credit card bill or buying groceries. Now I'm done for the day, holed up with some Oreos (and peanut butter!) and watching figure skating. Go Evan Lysacek!
AND. I was delighted to find out both Rachel Maddow and Ana Marie Cox were both at CPAC today, and was secretly hoping for a picture of both of them, a la that picture
of them from the Radio & TV Correspondents Dinner earlier this year. Of course, I posted this thought on Twitter, where it got picked up not only by Rachel Maddow's producer (who posted this, semi-satisfying me) but Ana Marie Cox herself (ZOMG YOU GUYS.) This has now earned me a few new Twitter followers, which is pretty weird.
Tomorrow should be pretty good as well, despite the fact that I can't eat any meat. I have an Audio Production private lesson in the morning, and grocery shopping afterwards. Then producing at a Loserville
shoot, and capping the night off with some Olympics, as per usual. Tomorrow night is when Ice Dancing starts, and I'm really excited because two of USA's Ice Dancing pairs are from Michigan, right around the city where I'm from! Now if only I could fit in some homework in there as well...
