I miss my family :c Mom came to see me yesterday, and it was so so so nice. She was at a nursing convention at the Classic Center downtown, so I rode up to see her after my seed identification lab was done (which was awesome, btw). I swear it's completely uphill from Warnell to downtown. My ass hurts today from that grind! I got to sit in with her during a presentation about an online nursing program. It was HILARIOUS. The woman presenting was not a nurse; just some spokeswoman for the company, and she was showing how the site has video skill modules so that you can watch tutorials on how to do things. One situation:
Spokeswoman: "As you can see, we have many different video tutorials for the students! We can watch one so you can see what they're like. They're very informative! Which should we watch?"
Some weird nurse: "Urinary catheterization!"
Then we went and talked to Chris' Pa over where my car was laying dormant. He got on the phone with the body shop and one hour later I had my car again!!! I've never been so pleased to be driving! This last week I've been riding my bike everyday, and it wass fabulous exercise and wonderful to get the fresh air, but it has also been in the 50s and raining just about everyday :CCC My quick dry clothes are very limited (and the winter ones are mostly at home), so I had to wear running shorts everyday, which was FREEZING. Plus, it was midterms week. It was awful. But I have an engine and climate control again now, so all is grand! It's a good thing too, because it's 48 and raining today. How miserable. GA has been getting so much rain; it's incredible. In soils/hydrology class, we were looking at the Oconee River's discharge over the last 60 days and it went from 38 cu m/sec. in August to 10,000 cu m/sec as of a couple days ago!!! So much for that drought! Our soils are going crazy though and still haven't recovered from the drought, so bad things are going on in the meantime. LOTS of flooding and erosion. /boring
How did I go from my mom visiting to GA soils? What the hell, Allie. Anyways, my Mom brought me a big pumpkin and some free swag she got at the nursing convention (which was mostly LOTS of hand sanitizer and first aid kits), which was awesome of her c: She got me this chip clips from the convention, and I was clicking them at Ember last night. He starting clicking back at them with the rhythm and bobbing his head. We had a mini castanet/headbang party for about 15 seconds. After mom left, I felt very homesick. She's cool, and I miss her and Dad and Butterscotch and Blair and Haley.... Siiiiiigh.
On a positive note, it's the weekend, dreary as it is! I made a small list of things to do, and hopefully I'll get some done:
-Where the Wild Things Are
-Walk through the woods and collect more plants and acorns and mushrooms
-Expand on my crocheting skills
-Draw more wolves -Study soils at some point
That is all!
