6th batch

24 Sep

Here are my five “for the week.” We really haven’t been doing it weekly anymore, which is fine with me. It gives me a little more time to work on them.

Oh, and the dates on the pictures have nothing to do with the pictures themselves. I just randomly picked them.

And here’s the current sticker on my car. For those of you who don’t know, it’s totally customizable.

Here are some things that have been going on recently..

I give my first interview tomorrow in front of class. I’m a little nervous.

I pulled a piece of wisdom tooth out of my gums yesterday, so I went to the dentist today and he filled the hole with awful tasting gauze soaked in some kind of medicine. It has to stay in there for a week. It keeps releasing really bad tasting medicine into my mouth.

Eric is moving out sometime soon. We’re either going to have to find another new roommate, or just abandon ship. But I’m sure it’ll all work out somehow.

I was walking around campus the other day and there was something really irritating my eyeball. I went into the bookstore to buy a brownie and the cashier goes “Here’s some free gum, and a free sample of eyedrops.” Weird, right?

Just finished Ender’s Game for the second time. I’m about to start reading the Harry Potter series.

mm..I think that’s it for now.

pulling teeth

11 Sep

I had my wisdom teeth pulled yesterday. It was pretty nuts, because I was informed in my checkup that I would be put to sleep during the procedure because the bottom two teeth that hadn’t crowned would have to be surgically removed. When I got to the office, I found that the surgeon that was going to operate on me was out of the country and I’d be having a stand in. I was told this by a woman that would be assisting in my surgery. This woman was arguing pretty hard with another lady that worked there, so when she was bringing me to the operating room she was all pissed off. I just kept trying to make jokes with her to lighten the mood, but she wasn’t having it.

So I’m sitting in the chair, nervous as crap, and the surgeon comes in. He gives me some pain killer and starts explaining stuff to me, although at that point I couldn’t really talk or understand what was going on. I was conscious though. They started removing them and I kept looking around at them as if to say “HOLY CRAP I’M STILL AWAKE” (since I couldn’t talk). I remember flinching in pain, making weird noises, swallowing blood, and hearing my teeth cracking. It all seems like a bad dream now though..I don’t really remember the feeling of pain, just flinching because of it, if that makes any sense.

A really unfortunate (and I guess rare since they didn’t mention it; I had to look it up) after effect of getting your wisdom teeth removed is chronic hiccups. I am extremely tired because I’m on some hardcore pain medications, but I can’t go to sleep because the hiccups won’t let me. I’m pretty sure this is one of the annoying experiences I’ve ever had in my life.

I’m really really looking forward to full recovery

week 4

1 Sep

Just got back from watching Inglourious Basterds. It was really really good, I highly recommend it.

Here are this weeks projects. The colors got all jacked up in some of them, but I just decided to leave them as-is.

School is going really well so far. Much better than I expected, though I do have to give speeches a lot now. I think I’m getting more comfortable with it finally. I walked into my interviewing class today not sure of what was going on because I missed last Friday. I asked a girl next to me and she said we had to give speeches about ourselves today. “OH SHIII…”. So I got up when it was my turn and free-styled and it turned out ok. I even made fun of myself for being nervous, but my teacher said I did really well.

In my advertising class we get to take a 3 day trip to St. Louis. I’m really excited about it.

Wisdom teeth are coming out on Sept. 10th. I’m so nervous I could crap all over myself.
