Strange how all the water went to one side of the hall. Good construction...very nice.
Then two weeks ago one of my rooms went out to eat and came back and their room was full of water. They toilet had overflowed while they were gone. I was on duty that night. 5 incidents happened all at once that night to I was all over the place. Don't remember too much that happened with that flood. The last flood was a the room next to me. Once again it was a toilet. It kind of seeped into my room. Not bad. Some papers got wet and I had to throw them away. But still...what is with all the floods!?
So I started this post like a week ago when I was at work. Something came up and I forgot all about it until just now.
Well not a whole lot has happened. Been kind of quiet. I am so excited that Thanksgiving is just around the corner. We will be spending Thanksgiving this year in Fort Worth with Jordan's family. We were originally planning on going to his grandparents, however, Jordan's grandmother was just diagnosed with colon and liver caner. They started treatment right away so they wont be able to join us. This is very disappointing and hard for us. PLease pray for her and her health.
That pretty much sums it up for now.

So for my birthday DeAnna had people over to give me presents and eat cake. Then DeAnna, Daniel and I went to MacAllisters. Yes I did in fact come home and watch Beauty and the Beast. It was wonderful and exactly how I wanted it to be. Then Friday we went and saw Life As We Know It. AMAZING! Love that movie. Everyone should go see it. It really makes you appreciate what and who you have in your life.
This weekend I am going home to relax after my final. Jordan normally wouldn't get home until 3 or 4am Saturday morning, but he told me that he would be home by 1! So excited! I can't wait to see him. I miss him so much. The Saginaw Rough Riders are still losing. Every game so far. Not good. I am not sure what to do with a high school football team that doesn't win. *sigh* They better get on track in the coming years. Otherwise it wont be a good relationship between the Rough Riders and myself.

Spanish has consumed my life. In two weeks I have my final and then I start Spanish 4. It is beginning to take a lot out of me, but I see the light at the end of the tunnel now. Spanish 4 is so close! That is the road that leads me to graduation.
Work has been crazy. Nothing really new, but we are having a lot of incidents. The residents feel the need to push the limits and see how far they can push the rules. It doesn't seem to be working to well for them. We have had fights, alcohol, drugs. We just recently were introduced to a new way to get high. Smoking potpourri apparently gets you toasted really quickly. They smoke it so fast and in such large quantities that it is almost worse then pot. Interesting...who thought of smoking potpourri and why on earth did they not have anything better to do with their life?
We celebrated Desiree's Birthday! on the 20th and the 25th. Her actual birthday is Sept. 20th. We went and ate at Cheddar's because it was a Monday night and all had a rough week ahead of us. Then Friday we went to Sealy Flats and had to sit in the rain. It was good food and great atmosphere besides the rain. Desiree and I both got attacked by my little pink umbrella. It was pretty entertaining. We then went dancing and just had some fun. We couldn't stay out to late because Saturday was Parents Day and we all had to work. Yay!!!!
Then Sunday we had a staff party for doing so well on MapWorks. We had almost all 200 something Freshman take the survey. I believe only one student did not. Most universities only hit 30%. Our residence hall alone hit 98%. RECORD!!! So we got a T-REX CAKE!!!
Tuesday is my birthday...makes me sad. I don't want to celebrate or do anything special. I just want to stay at home alone and watch Beauty and the Beast. It has nothing to do with the fact that I am turning 23. That is exciting. It is the fact that I am Kendall Willis and it is my birthday and I don't even get to spend it with my husband. My first birthday as a married woman and I have to spend it away from Jordan. This is what makes me sad. I would like to pretend that it is just another ordinary day. Nothing special at all.

This weekend I get to go see Jordan. It has been about a month so I guess you could say it is long over due. However, before I leave on Friday I have my second Spanish test. I did well on the first, but I want to do better. I am trying really hard to get that A. I view going to see Jordan as a reward to studying so hard. Fingers crossed!
Tonight I am on duty. We have already had a huge leak. The F300's air conditioner froze over so not there is a huge puddle on water on my floor by our entry door. Wonderful. It seems that each building is beginning to leak. Every week it is something new. A couple of weeks ago it was the hot water into the Commons Conference room. Not good. Then last week some how water was standing in on of my rooms bathrooms. My girls were shocked and it looked like it was coming from the wall. No way it could have come from the shower. It was so random. We still have no idea what caused that. So with all the stress of being on duty I went to visit Hannah in the office of the Commons while she is working desk. We decided to crank up the music and just dance. Sometimes you just have to dance. It really does get rid of all the stress. Wonderful.
With that there is nothing else new. Just trying to get through this semester...alive. Hahaha jk...not really.

I had my first Spanish Test last week. Not real sure how that went down. I am sure we will see Tuesday. Then this weekend we had family dinner at Desiree's house Friday night and watched Why Did I Get Married Too? It was wonderful and the food was amazing! Sadly it was only Hope, Desiree and I. Everyone else got to go out of town. Lame. Then Saturday I cleaned and moved my room around. I ended up not liking it and moved it back. That was a good moment. After that Des and I went to HEB and got some breakfast food for dinner to have with the Staff. We made eggs, pancakes/chocolate chip pancakes, bacon and cinnamon rolls. Yummy!!! It was so good. Before we made dinner we all went to the first football game of the season. We played Eastern New Mexico and actually played really well. We ended up winning. ASU hasn't won a game in a long time. I forgot what it felt like.
Today we went to Church and all came back to the residence halls. I went and ran errands! I am officially Willis on everything now except for stupid ASU. That wont be done until after Sept. 20th. Ridiculous. I am so used to Willis now, it is hard for me to write or even say Brawner. A professor called out my name for roll and I didn't respond...mainly because I wasn't paying attention, but also because I was waiting for her to say Willis. My bad.
Tomorrow...Labor Day...more like lame day. Don't judge me for not being a fan of Labor Day this year. I just don't like something slowing down classes. I want to get them over with. Anyway I have to work tomorrow so it's not like I even get a Labor Day. I would like to go shopping, but that is not going to happen because we haven't been paid yet. We have been here since Aug. 1st and have not been paid yet. We are all basically living off of Ramen. Seriously. Not good.

This was a wonderful weekend. Friday we all when over to Hope's for FFN (Family Fun Night) and had a wonderful dinner. After we headed over to Float 404 for an adult beverage. It was just what we needed after a stressful first week. The night was beautiful. We sat out on the dock and just enjoyed the nice breeze and the wonderful Concho River. The first stress free night in a long time and probably the only stress free night for a while. Thank you stupid Spanish. I didn't get a chance to talk to Jordan, but I do know that Saginaw lost their first game. Jordan didn't get home until 10:30 am Saturday. He worked all night breaking down film. Glad I wasn't there.
Saturday I reviewed Spanish (I have a test next week) and just hung around the hall. Then went over to Hope's for dinner. Wonderful as always. We watched The Last Song and had a good cry. Then we sat around and talked for a bit letting out our frustrations. Once again this was a much needed night.
Today we went to Church. When I was walking out to my car I noticed something unusual. After getting closer I realized that some idiot threw a whole thing of spaghetti all over the side of my car. At this point it was hard. I picked Desiree up and we ran to the car wash. It got some off but not all. So after Church we went to Ihop and then I headed home to finish cleaning off my car. After 30 min I finally got it all off and took it back to the car wash and ran it through one more time. I hope whoever did it enjoys whatever karma will bestow upon them.
Now I am procrastinating. It is Sunday and I should be studying, but I am just so tired of it. I hate college and I am so ready to be done.
