6:09pm: Keep it up! Keep it in the UP.
Fucking song stuck in my head all week.

4th November 2009

12:47pm: Ha cha cha
Well well well. Welcome to November. And no snow yet, craziness!

It has been awhile, dear Livejournal. Here is what's going on in my less than exciting life:

Classes are meh. I'm doing pretty well in Biochem and Revisions. Biochem is probably one of the hardest classes I've ever taken, and one of the most failed classes as Tech, but I think I have a B right now, and I'm pretty excited about that. I'm picking up in Physics, but I'm currently skipping that at the moment, so we'll see. I don't really like CS, but I have an AB, so I'm not complaining. Yeahh.

Teaching is fun. Overall I have pretty good students, and I enjoy it, even though I get flustered sometimes because there's always one kid who doesn't like you for no good reason other than the fact that you're the authority figure, so it's kind of annoying. Hopefully I can do it again next year.

I schedule for winter classes Thursday, so hopefully I get all the classes I want. Tentatively, I'm gonna snag Genetics, Genetics Lab, P-Chem (basically quantum physics? kill me), Logic and Critical Thinking, General Immunology, and BEGINNING ICE SKATINGGGG. Haha. Hopefully everything works out.

Greg and I are awesome, I pretty much live at his house now. I go home to do laundry, get clothes, play with Boomer, watch TV and sometimes eat. I do homework, sleep, and do pretty much everything else at Pewabic. It's a good system. Haha. There really is nothing better than waking up next to someone awesome.

I'm going home this weekend for family stuff, so meh.

I think that might be it, ish.

Also, I do not believe that pretty much anyone on my friends list livejournals it up anymore other than Bonnie, so HI BONNIEEEEE. I LOVE YOUUUUU!!!

That's if for now, I think. I need to prep for teaching today and then walk to campus. Yayyyy.


I know you might roll your eyes at this,
But I'm so glad that you exist.

9th November 2008

8:02pm: I love it up here.
And the first snowfall that sticks is beautiful.
But there's one thing I need to say.

I lied.
I'm not over it.

I'll be home in 1 week and 5 days.

And I thought what I felt was simple,
And I thought that I don't belong,
And now that I am leaving,
Now I know that I did something wrong 'cause I missed you.
Yeah, I missed you.

22nd August 2008

1:58am: I just said goodbye to my best friend.
I didn't realize it would be so hard to do.
I can't believe I won't see her for 3 months.

16th August 2008

2:03am: I leave in a week.
Holy shit.

This summer has been awesome, you know, met new people, hung out with friends, the usual.
Had a summer relationship....?! :D

Hmm.

I'm so excited and so terrified to move in. I can't wait to get out of Farmington Hills, but I'm also completely freaked out to go a million miles away knowing very few people.
I was going to write a lot more right now, but I really don't feel like it.

Here's my new address(!!!) if you want to send me something. =] (I'll send you something back, I promise!)

Claire Higginbottom
525 E. Wadsworth Hall
1701 Townsend Dr
Houghton, MI, 49931

In 8 days, I will be moved in, and updating from my dorm room. AHH.

You say you love me, love me again.
But if you love me, where have you been?
You say you need me more than anyone else, well go to hell.
Where have you been?

17th June 2007

6:37pm: 15 hours.

I'm so excited to be getting out of here.

I'm making a pledge with myself right now.

I'm not going to pull a lot of Claires and pass up adventures.

I'm going to have an amazing time, and i'm not going to worry about acting retarded in front of a bunch of Spaniards.

I probably won't have another experience like this ever again, so if i dont make the most of it, I just might be pissed at myself.

I'll miss you all (especially you, Lauren! This will probably be the longest we've gone without each other. I got all depressed without you at camp last summer, and that was only 7 days!)!

AHHHHHHH!



i hope that you never relive that
something tells me
trouble always gives you a hand
its just a matter of passing time

3:12pm: CAN'T FIND MY CELL PHONE.

It's a Verizon LG White Chocolate, and the background is me and my waiter at Johnny Rockets.

If you know anything about it//have it, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE let me know.


CRISIS AVERTED.

Woot.

8th April 2007

11:34am: ATTN MSU PEOPLE.

I will be visiting your lovely campus tomorrow with Lauren for a tour and stuff.

And we'll probably be hanging out there for awhile.

So give me a call if you want to say hi or something.

Yeahh.

[[Verizon gave me a new phone, so I can talk again without it having a seizure! Score!]]

Tell all the English boys you meet.
Bout the American boy back in the States.
The American boy you used to date.
Who would do anything you say.

7:04pm: ACT practice test as administered by Claire Corp.


Hello and welcome to Claire-engineered simulation ACT practice test.
Here at Claire Corp., we want you do well on the test that decides your future. We certainly do not want to see you get a less than mediocre score, go to a less than mediocre college, and watch as the system crushes you and all your dreams in its cold iron fist and flings your spiritually mangled body into a cubicle to pine away the rest of your sad shamble of a life filling out TPS reports.

Good luck and godspeed.



---Please do not open your test booklet until you are directed to do so. Failure to comply will result in electrical shock, transmission of clymidia by injection, or mauling by means of octabeaver (the result of sick mating experiments carried out by Avon Cosmetics in testing their new spring color line.)



Please open your test book to page one. Read the following prompt and respond as best you can in a 25 minute period. Please refrain from obsessing over the disturbingly high amount of importance this test carries. Please do your best to control any stress-induced convulsions, twitching that may disturb your neighbor, or any Tourette's-like urges you may suffer.



Section 1 The Essay
PROMPT:
"Take somebody by the waist and uh. And throw it in their face like uh. Systematic, ecstatic, this hit be automatic." ---Missy Elliot Lose Control

These song lyrics by hip hop artist Missy Elliot express nothing of any praticular importance. Use them to help you write an essay in which you state and evaluate on your opinion regarding whether transcending to the oversoul is an accomplishment that can only be realized through isolating oneself in nature, or if it is an existential concept that is also applicable in the post-modern world of today.

Write your response on the Dairy Queen napkins provided.
