Cardinal Nation!

5 minute countdown!! Scotty McCreery just sang the National Anthem. He was...amazing, as usual. Not gonna lie, you could see the poor kid's nerves all over his face, but once he started singing, you'd never know it. He sounded like he'd been doing it his whole life. Scotty was on The BULL this morning...which I missed. But I watched the interview a couple hours ago. If there's any Scotty McCreery fans reading, you can find the interview here.

I had a whole post I wrote last night, but for some reason my Blackberry wouldn't send it. Grr technology...Anyway it really wasn't anything important. I just needed something to do while I sat at QT waiting for my car to start. Because Saturn is dumb and fails at life. I didn't know until a couple years ago that QT is apparently a local thing. Basically QT (or Quick Trip) is the god of all gas stations. They're always clean, and the people are friendly, and the bathrooms don't creep you out to use.

I'm selling my iPad and buying a laptop. I love love love my iPad, but there's things I need for college that the iPad just can't do. Soooo if anyone's interested email me (my e-mail's over there --->) I haven't decided on a price yet, but it will be fairly cheap (less than half what I paid).

Okay, well some people are coming over to watch the game and I'm missing bits and pieces of it so I'm gonna go. GO CARDS!!

*****okay so I can't figure out how to get my email on here, and I don't feel like messing with it right now, so just ignore that ^^up there^^ ;)

Why is Everyone So Surprised?

WHO'S IN THE WORLD SERIES?? THAT'S RIGHT! We are! GO CARDS!! WOOOOOOOT!! And how much will the news (not STL) say about it? "sports blah blah 10min. of how the brewers gave it there best shot sports blah blah 10. minutes about Texas sports blah blah ohyeahbythewaythecardinalsareintheworldseries blah blah blah" Oh big deal right? that we are the BEST team in the National League. Or that we have some of the best player in baseball. No big deal.

Hey, do ya'll know what this means? Scotty McCreery will be in St. Louis on Wednesday. :D He's singing at the first game. Cool. Beans.

Let's news. I had my psych midterm 2 weeks ago and the grades just got posted last night. I sincerely thought I failed. I guessed on half of it. My teacher said his test are pass/fail kinda thing. You either get an A or an F. Since I guessed on most of it, I assumed I would be on the F-side of the scale. But what did I get? A 92% That's right! I guess I'm a good guesser. ;) So I am a happy camper today. This week is DEFINITELY starting our on the right foot. :)

Alright, time to go meet with my advisor about classes next semester. Have a good week!

Quick Update

I'm pretty sure only in Missouri can you find 84 degree weather in October. I'm not exactly complaining. I know I'll miss the warm weather once there's 2 feet of snow on the ground, but I want my jeans and hoodies, and bonfire, and 50-degrees.

GO CARDS! They KICKED the Brewers' butts on Friday night! Only one game may stand between the Cardinals and the World Series. If they make it, they'll be playing Texas, which is completely fine with me. I was in Detroit a few years ago, and the city was cold and dirty. I didn't like anything about it (no offense to anyone from Detroit). Yeah, I know "who are you to be hating on other cities?" Well, St. Louis may be #1 in crime. And a bit rundown in areas. But hey, it's home. :)

I'm counting down they days 'til Christmas break (61 days!). I love school. I like learning, but I'm ready for break. An entire month. :)

I think that's actually about it for now. Not a lot going on besides school and work. Hopefully I'll have a more interesting post later this week. Have a good Sunday! :)

who needs mountains or oceans? ;)

The Things I Love...

* I love baseball GO CARDS!

*I love mango anything

 *I love cows
*I love the Midwest

*I love Skype

so I can see my bestie's beautiful face even though she lives in Texas

 *I love my dog

* I love home
*I love Starbucks

* I love this picture

Though I'm not a fan Illinois
* I love that my friends and I are so lame that instead of partying on Friday nights, are idea of fun is driving through Arby's backwards

* I love crazy stories my family made up about the (former) neighbors

supposedly this is a meth lab. every night a little red light shined through the window...that could only mean one of two things...

* I love Mason and Remy from the BULL

* I love going to haunted houses with my friends

*I love Chai tea

*I love Chevy trucks

the bigger the tires, the better :)

Aaaaaaannnnnd one more of my (former) neck of the woods

awww what the more from the Midwest :) (this one's from Illinois)
And obviously I love my family, but somehow I don't have any pictures of them at the moment. fail.

Well that sums up my week. The picture with Mason and Remy is from when I went to a haunted house last weekend. So. Much. Fun. Because my parents aren't fans of Halloween, I've never been trick-or-treating, and before this had never been to a haunted house. This particular one is pretty popular in our area. Was it worth $25? Probably not, since I'm cheap. ;) But I had a good time. The highlight though was getting to meet my favorite people from my favorite radio station. :D And since I'm seriously thinking about going into radio broadcasting, it was pretty cool :) OH and I was on the radio...just an FYI :) :)

The Illinois pictures are from last Sunday. My grandparents decided they wanted to take us out to eat to this place we used to go to when I was younger. The Wittmond Hotel is a quaint old hotel-turned-restaurant. They serve food family-style, so there's no menu. You eat what they give you and you like it. Believe me it is GOOD. there's a set price per person and includes everything but drinks and dessert. It was the day before my brothers birthday and my grandparents had brought in a cake. The staff was completely cool with it, and even brought out a candle for it. Then they had the whole dining room sing happy birthday to the kid. teehee I'm just glad it wasn't me. *ahem embarrassment* I highly recommend you check them out if you're ever in the area. It's in Brussels in Calhoun County, IL (the directions are on the website).

That's about all I have for now. It's getting late (and by late I mean does strange things to you) and I still need to get some homework done. Goodnight peoples! :)

You Know You're From Missouri When...

I love reading these. I wonder if they're meant to be stereotypical because I can relate to about 98% of them. By the way, sorry I haven't been around lately.
