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.
