this is my mantra for the rest of the week.
i'm in la this week (till saturday) for the mepag (mars exploration program analysis group) meeting. a bunch of kiddos from asu came -- amy, who's rooming with me in this fine holiday inn, zack, jorge, jonathan, and also ron greeley. conference is wed-thurs and then i'm staying with britney (yay!) until saturday. i'm excited. britney is awesome. she has a way of cheering me up when my life goes insane on me. it appears that i have a habit of flying to la when my life is getting out of control. funny that.
it turns out ron greeley is not completely stoic, cold, and heartless. go figure. it seems he was worried about me and we had a nice chat earlier today in his office, and then some at the airport. kinda strange to think of him worrying about someone, and for that to be me was even weirder.
i am loopy (hehe i just wrote i am loppy) right now. lack of sleep + stress + finally getting away = weeeee fun times for heather. i crack myself up. loppy. does that word even mean anything?? hehe. i am the loppiest of all. thank you bobosan
, for giving the definition of loppy: "hanging limp; pendulous." so apparently i am now pendulous. woo.
so glad i left. i need to get away from life for a few days and clear my head. going to learn all i can about mars and all the present/future missions and hang out with my friends and then go chill with britney. eat lots of good food (yay for per diem! -- per diem is latin!). sleep once the conference is over. and go to a party once i get back. and then it's time to get back on track with my schoolwork. enough of this bullshit. i can do better. i will do better. i'll let my parents do whatever the hell they want and i am going to get my shit together.
my cousin erin rocks by the way. she's so awesome. i called her last night to let her know what was going on with my parents and how they want me to cease communication with my family, and i believe her words were, "if you stop talking to me, i'm going to kick your ass." hehe. i love erin. she's so cool. and it's nice that i have someone in my family who wants to stay in my life, even if it's going in a completely different direction now.
both the cowboys and the longhorns won this weekend. kick ass. however, all the teams i like in the southland conference, including sfa, lost. bummer. maybe this week they'll win. that would be super.
quick note: i like stuff blowing up. more stuff should blow up. my favorite day in pchem was when the prof blew something up twice. it was great. i'd enjoy class a lot more if something blew up every day.
have to get up early to learn about mars (yay mars woo!) so off to bed i go. enough of the loopiness (or loppiness if you prefer) for now. night all
recap: i'm in la, mars and britney are fun, ron greeley is actually pretty cool, i'm loopy and/or loppy, going to get my life back together, erin kicks ass, so do the cowboys and longhorns, stuff blowing up is cool, yay mars woo. the end.
