Wow. That's all I can say about this past week. Its been.....interesting. Some parts were really great, others were really awful. Its like, for everything good that happened, something bad happened right afterward.
I have a new boy.... but now my best friend is really mad at me/us... he's her brother. And its a very, very long story, but I'm really just hoping that she will eventually come around and stop being mad at us. He came to visit on Sunday and didn't leave until last night...we just had too much fun together. It was so nice.
We went to Starbucks yesterday evening. We stayed and talked for a long time, and had a great time. And when we got back to my house, we found out that my mom was in a car accident while we were gone. She's fine, but her van was definitely damaged. Not totalled, I don't think, but still. So that was bad.
Then, Don left to go back to Annapolis. He called me on his way home to tell me that he had gotten pulled over for speeding (not cool), but the really weird part was that the cops actually searched his car for drugs!! What?! If you actually KNOW Don, you know that's the most ridiculous accusation ever. But it gets worse - not only were there 3 cop cars on the scene, and they searched his car, but then the officer actually tried to tell him that they had found marijuana in his car. WHAT?! He said he actually just laughed because the whole thing was so ridiculous. When Don refused to admit that there were any drugs in his car, or that he even knows someone who uses drugs (which he doesn't), the cop just said, "Oh, well, it wasn't enough for me to charge you anyway, so I guess we'll just forget about it". Oh my god. So, basically, these small-town cops were just trying to make him nervous and hopefully admit to something that they THOUGHT they could get him for, and it was probably because of his looks. He has lots of tattoos, and he drives a yellow car. And he was probably listening to metal or something. But come on, seriously? That's not right. The whole thing was so ridiculous. I can't even believe it. Its so wrong to judge people by their appearances... I totally understand why cops do it, and that it makes their job easier, but they just wouldn't give it a rest. They wasted his time and theirs. Unbelievable.
So, anyway, I have so much to do this week, its not even funny. I honestly don't know how I'm going to get anything done. Really. I have 4 projects to do by Dec. 1. Big projects. And then its Finals Week. Ohmygod. I'm so stressed out. I just want this semester to be over and done with. Really.
I have to go apply for a passport this morning to go to Curacao in January. I'm pretty excited, but nervous too because I'm such a procrastinator. I hope there isn't a long wait to get it processed! And, last but not least, I have a runny nose....again. I just kicked the last cold, and I'm starting to feel under the weather again! What's up with this?!
