Saturday- This weekend me and my grandmother went to different colleges in Greensboro. We first went to UNCG and idk if it is just me being overwhelmed but that place was a big school. I didnt really care for it. We then went to Bennett and if you havnt heard of it, its ok because its an all girls Methodist school that is very very very small. I liked it alot, as soon as we got their the security guy was like, do yall even know where your at?. We talked to him he told us where to park and said that we were allowed to go everywhere and anywhere that was unlocked. As we looked around we meet up with him again, he gave us a little tour. Pointed out the dorms and stuff.then he points at the financial building and said one of recruiters car is here so if were lucky she will be here. We got to have a privet conversation with her about everything I wanted to know about Bennett then she said if we had we had time she could text one of the Bells (Mascot is a bell, like the liberty bell) and let them give us a tour. She texted i think 5 or 6 girls, one responded and she was really cool. We spent about 2 hours at Bennett. Now im not saying ive made a final decision, but its a good possibility. We then went over to Elon, wow, is what i have to say. The place was just wow. Beautiful, big, I liked it more than UNCG but not as much as Bennett. After that, now heading home we stopped at Mimi’s cafe, ive always wanted to go and she was starving. I think i found a new favorite restaurant, it was like decorated in LA, played Jazz and served mostly french type foods. Aww, i fell in love. We also went shopping a little at the mall there, she got me some new jewelry for my tongue im gonna put a new pair in tonight, might take a pic for yall.
Tuesday- Took mom out to lunch, we went to the Mimi’s cafe closer to home, the waitress i didnt think was that great, but the food was still amazing. The way it works there is some meals come with a muffin, then a salad with what ever you ordered. When we got our muffins my mom neglected to hear the woman say, “here is your muffin and salad dressing”. So my mom takes her chocolate muse muffin and dip it in her Balsamic Vinaigrette dressing she all the sudden goes, “Ewwww NOT GOOD!” and pushed her dressing away. I’m like, did you really just dip your muffin in that??, she shakes her head. Im just like….niice mom. That is your dressing, why did you dip your muffin in that? She thought it was a caramel sauce for her muffin. After words i went to Barnes&Nobel, got 2 new books, an audio book, and something for my sister.She loves those 3D puzzles and because St. Patrick’s day is soon they had shamrock ones, so i got her that. Was over 50 bucks, but with all my gift cards i was given .60 cents, not bad i thought. Later that day i took mom and sam out to dinner at Logans and my mom asks if ive talked to my sister, Im like no, why? Thats when i found out about my sisters student. We had a very grim topic, which ive already posted a little blog about it. Its made me think of my grandparents, I know that their arnt going to live for forever and it made me think that when i pick a college it should be some where not too far from them. Like if i went to a college in LA and something happens that would be a 20 hour drive, not including stopping for gas or stuff. But if i was in Greensboro (Bennett) id be maybe 4 or 5 hours away. Just something else to think about.
Yesterday- Ever have those days when one thing goes wrong the rest of the day is just an avalanche? Well that was me yesterday. It started with my glasses, couldnt find them things anywhere. Found out the paper i needed to print for my class wasnt saved, so i had 2o min to rewrite the whole entire thing, wound up being 6 minutes late. My communications class had a test so i think i did ok. While i waited for my English class i made an appointment with the ILC (Individualized Learning Center *free tutors* ) for after class to help me with my psychology. Ive started reading a book that i dont believe is true, its called, “The favorite child” its about how every parent/family suffers from favoritism, and that is neither good nor bad but its how you deal with the favoritism is how it can be good or bad. Then in English me and my friend have been working on a brochure and we had to turn it in….man i felt like i didnt really do anything for it, but she said i came up with the idea so i shouldnt have to do much. I looked up pictures for her, and made up reviews and other minor stuff. After we sent it in she realized that she forgot to copyright our business. Hopefully we wont get into alot of trouble for it. When i had my meeting my tutor gave me a new tactic on how to study and im gonna try it when i finish this up. Later the day i called my sister to talk to her, I told her my bad day and she told me about her bad day monday. Apparently the girl had Asperger’s and my sister was like, “I can see her seeing that she can walk across the street without even thinking about looking both ways before going.” Afterwords we were talking about how i need to save my money for college, I told her their is one thing i want and that i will soon need anyways, so me and her are possibly going to go shopping together on Good Friday.
Today- seems so slow, but im counting down just 1 week and 1 day then my Spring Brake will be there….i can hardly wait!!!!!!! Well im off now, i gotta study for my psychology test i have tomorrow. Until then, have a good week.
