School Tomorrow! Tag Post Too!

So I'm pretty much all set for tomorrow! Marc went with me to school for moral support and we bought my books, a new parking pass, and got information to have my transcripts sent to Mount Mary. It's the last one I had to have sent, and the only one I had to pay for. My books cost me 700 dollars today, for only three classes! It hurt giving the lady my debit card.

After going to school, Marc took me out to Olive Garden. We toasted to getting through another semester of classes and being there for each other, it was really sweet. He also talked to me about leaving the house so early in the mornings, and wondered why I had given myself so much time to get to class. Turns out I can sleep in an extra 45 minutes because of a miscalculations YAY! So I'll be going to bed at midnight, and waking up at 7:30.

I have my gym bag all packed!

So a new friend, and reader of mine Linda who blogs over at Frickin' Fabulous at 40 tagged me in a post of 11 questions, so here we go!

1). Do you have any tattoos? Do you regret it/them?
I have two tattoos, three if you count the one I got covered up by the second one..whoa, does that make sense?!? I absolutely regreted the second one I got, that's why I got it covered up. It was a little heart that I got with an ex friend. word to the wise, don't get matching tattoos! (both of the following pictures were taken when I was 18!)

2). What is one food that you couldn't live without or could eat every day?
Right now it's eggs! It's the perfect food! I like the taste, it's satisfies my hunger, and keeps me full for a long time. I love a wheat english muffin with egg and spinach!

3). What is one of your favorite memories of childhood?
I love being outside, exploring, playing, pooping in the woods you name it! LOL! Did I just own up to that??!!?

4). What did you want to be when you grew up? Did you fulfill your dream?
The first job I ever wanted was being the shampoo girl at the haircutting place! Didn't fulfill that one! I never thought I'd want to become a dietitian, it's amazing how life can change!

5). What's the farthest you've been from home? Where's home?!
When I lived in Maine it was Florida, when I lived in Florida it was Maine. Now I live in Wisconsin....lol!

6). Is there something that you love that you'd sort of be embarrassed to admit?
I loved stuffed animals! I'd still sleep with one if I could! I use a small pillow in place of where my teddies used to go. You can see a couple of my stuffies on the couch from yesterday's post!

7). Are you a side/back/stomach sleeper?
I'm mostly a left side sleeper. I also really like sleeping on my stomach, but not really ever my back. If I do wake up on my back, I usually have my knees pulled up kind of like a weird fetal position!

8). Have you ever met anyone famous? Who?
I've met Oprah and Stedman. Plus a guy from jackass who I can't remember his name I met from a Dare concert. I went onstage and sang happy birthday to one of my girlfriends. :)

9). Do you have an actor/actress/entertainer that you're infatuated with/fantasize about?
I always liked Robin Williams but Marc doesn't believe me!!! I love a man with a good sense of humor!
10). What's your least favorite household chore?
I hate doing the dishes. I always end up getting my shirt wet, and having water drip down my arms. Plus food crusted dishes GROSS ME OUT.

11). Do you have a bucket list?
If so, what's the one thing you REALLY want to do before...? I don't have a bucket list, but I really want to start a family, and own a home.

I loved these questions! I'm not going to tag anyone in this, because I really have no idea who would do this LOL! I really enjoyed it though, and if someone would like to be tagged let me know, and I'll think up some questions for you!

Wish me luck tomorrow!!!

After 4 years in college, I learned how to buy textbooks much more affordably. First off, buying them online is typically the way to go, unless your bookstore offers used copies. If you have to email a professor to ask for a book list, they are usually pretty understanding. Furthermore, unless it is a subject where the textbook would have specific homework assignments in it (math, for example), or you are in an English class, you can usually buy the previous edition of the textbook. In order to make extra money, textbook companies produce new editions with very few content changes. In a class like psychology or sociology where not much of the core theory has changed very much over the years, it means basically that some pictures may have been swapped or the chapters might have different page numbers, but will still be pretty darn easy to locate in the beginning of the book. Thing is, despite the lack of changes, the older edition is drastically reduced in value when a new one comes out. I bought the 7th edition of one of my textbooks this semester for $6 off half.com, when a used 8th edition would have cost me at least 50 bucks, and a new one would have been over 100.

Sorry for ranting so much about it, but I passionately dislike that college bookstores and textbook companies try to swindle money out of broke college students. :P

Katie said...

Oh, and when I say that the previous editions are "older", I mean that some companies often come out with new editions as frequently as every 2 years.

Aww Katie, thanks for your advice! At MATC, they get the books specifically made for the college, so it's harder to find online, but when I do, I buy them there! We get the book list at the beginning of the semester too. This is the most ridiculous school EVER!

I love those things. I thought *I* was the only person who LOVES Robin Williams. Something about his sense of humor is sex-ay!!

Amanda said...

I hope to be getting my first tattoo sometime in the near future. I've been dithering about it for years and really think I should make it come true now. :D

I love that you love Robin Williams. :D

SlimKatie said...

I'm dying to know how you met Oprah and Stedman!

Czesia said...

The Mrs- I'm glad I'm not alone in my love for Mr. Williams! We should start a fan club!
Amanda- I can't wait until you get a tattoo, that's going to be awesome!
Katie- I have to email message that one to you, look out for it!
