I finally went back and got caught up on The Big Bang Theory and I came upon a scene to which I could TOTALLY relate. This is EXACTLY how I felt learning physics, right down to the crying in frustration. How I got a B in this class, I will never know.

Best Friends

I realized something that I think is strange while I was at home. I realized that I really have three people in my life that I would consider my best/closest friends, that probably doesn't seem weird right? Like girls are supposed to have their group of friends right? Well the difference is that my three best friends don't really know each other, like at all.

Me & Kristin

Me & Gen

Me & Kailey*

Kristin and Kailey went to high school together but weren't really friends (not that they didn't like each other, they just weren't close) and probably wouldn't have any idea what was going on in each other's lives at this point if it weren't for me. Kristin and Gen have met once and I'm pretty sure Kailey and Gen have never met at all - Kailey confirms this. This is weird right?

*Oddly, finding a picture of Kailey and me was the most difficult of these three and we live together.

Oh, I Guess I Do Feel Better

It turns out I was a much better blogger in 2008 than I was in 2009 (111 posts vs. 76). I think this is because of a variety of things. I seemed to be doing well until the most recent semester which makes sense, I had a lot more school work to do so I was having less fun and therefore had less to blog about. Then there was that unfortunate incident at the end of October, that kinda put a damper on things but I will tell you that I was actually blogging then I just never pushed publish and I think you should probably be happy about that. Trust me, I just read them all again and despite (what I like to think of as) some, actually, pretty excellent writing* the content is depressing. At the time it didn't feel all that cathartic to write it down but it probably helped. In fact it may not have helped then but it helps now, it is nice to see the difference between then and now. I don't feel better today than I did yesterday but I feel a lot better than the person that wrote those entries in November and that is really really good to see. You'll just have to take my word on it since you aren't going to see the old posts but maybe keeping a journal isn't such a stupid idea.

*One was damn near poetry and I don't do poetry. I tell ya it was a thing of beauty with its meter and alliteration.

This is Why I Love Her

The night before I left to go home for Christmas was also my first night of freedom from finals so to celebrate Kailey and I went out for sushi and then hit Hey Cupcake for dessert. Hey Cupcake indeed! They were delicious!

So Kailey's cupcake was chocolate cake with a cream cheese frosting and was named (by the company and many years ago apparently) the Michael Jackson. My theory being that it is black on the inside and white on the outside. When we got home we realized that mine was the opposite (white cake with chocolate buttercream frosting) but had no interesting name.

Me: We have to name mine! Who is white on the inside and black on the outside?
*Kailey gets a big grin*
Me: Who?
Kailey: I don't want to say, it is mean.
Me: Oh My God, tell me! Who?!?!?!
Kailey: Barack Obama?
