News and Notes(8/25/10)

Looked at this blog this morning and saw I had a new comment on my post I did about my hair. I looked at the comment and it made my day. Someone commented regarding me helping them with an assignment that they were trying to work on and that I had been one of their resources. I take that as a great honor.
Also, I skipped my first class of the semester today. I would have liked to have gone but I forgot to put in my change of availability for the semester. So I worked instead of classing it. I don't plan on missing another class though. I also don't plan on being late for my 9:30 class tomorrow(or ever).
As many of you know, my phone's screen stopped working recently. Occasionally if I shimmy it right, I can see things but that is not working all of the time. I do like having little sense of time and being out of reach sometimes but it is really difficult when making plans. I also got to answer the phone without knowing who it is. It's like I'm living in the 90's again. Mi amigo, Tyler, offered me his phone to use but it doesn't seem to be working for me either. It only turns in when it is plugged in and even when that happens, it won't let me do anything. By golly I would like to get this figured out soon.

न्यूज़ एंड नोट्स (८/२४/२०१०)

First thing of note is that in my practice class there are 27 people total including the professor and I am the only person there with a Y chromosome. There usually is a high girl to guy ratio in my SW classes but this is the first time I've been alone. Not necessarily a good or a bad thing, just saying.
In my family problems class, I know a lot more people than I thought I would know. I knew I was going to know Amanda, Kori, and Lindsay. I didn't realize that SW Sean, John C, and Kayla P were going to be there. Not to mention the football players that are in the class. (5; Taiwan, Debrale, Everette, Cameron, and Avis)
At work, there was a shake weight(tm) that was not in the box and I was playing with it for a while. I learned a lot about myself by playing with the shake weight(tm). I also learned that there are at least three ways to use the shake weight that don't just seem silly. Number one is, pretend you are digging a ditch. Put the shovel in the ground and shake for a second, and then throw the dirt over your shoulder and shake for a second. Number two is, to pretend you are rowing a boat. A couple of shakes to the left followed by a couple of shakes to the right. Number three is, do the Jersey Shore fist pump. This one works better if you are to put on some House Music during the exercise.
I can't stop listening to the new Arcade Fire album. It's in my car on a cd and it hasn't made it's way out yet.

बिग हैर

When the weather outside gets to be humid, as humid as it sometimes gets in the summer in Tallahassee, my hair gets big. I would consider my hair to be naturally wavy. Without humidity there is very little actual curl in my hair. When the humidity comes out to play, that's when little tufts of my hair starts to go into little curling frenzies. That's when I get ringlets in my hair and when my hair starts to get big. My hair, unlike some people's, doesn't grow down on the sides. It likes to grow out in order to see how wide it can make my head look. I think there is a contest that it going on to see how far away the tips can get from each other.
Yesterday, in my thinking chamber, I was thinking of how I would describe my hair and instantly I knew it wouldn't be considered an afro from most people that saw it(which is disappointing because I would very much like to have a classic afro, although it probably wouldn't look as good on me as it does on my cousin, Russell). It is also pretty close to the traditional jewfro, but I think it is less curly and more big than that. I finally settled on calling my hair a "halfro"(pronounced: Half Fro) when it is out and about in the world.

I'm sad that With a Big Heart and Open Eyes us no longer an up and running blog @ The occasional post was nice and it was also nice to have that one way to occasionally communicate. This is still weird for me to think about, as I have never been in this situation before. Hope something happens soon or I might drive myself crazy with anticipation. 'Miss' doesn't seem to cover it for some reason.

Zach comes back today and that's a good thing. At least I think he comes back today. I missed him when he was being all french and stuff. I'm excited for the new semester and everyone getting back to Tally so we can all have a good time again.

Today is a brand new day. I'm excited to get started. I wonder what I will do and where my heart will take me. There are things I know I need to do, but I just really want to enjoy the sun. Also, no more fast food for me. I'm also really trying to cut down on my pop intake. These things are going to be very difficult for me. I really love pop and fast food is so cheap and easy to buy. We'll see how it goes. But if you see me doing any of these things, try and hold me accountable. Maybe I can defy myself and accomplish these things.
