Random Collection of Things

Yeah, I don't have a whole lot going on to blog about, because for the past couple of weeks have just been going to class, seeing Dan, and my usual procrastination regarding chores. I did get my first biochemistry exam back and I got an 82.5%, which was way better than I expected. There's another exam on Monday so hopefully I keep doing that well. The class is so obnoxious. Virology started and that is a really cool class, and the professor is really good. I'm starting my last rotation soon, I just have to meet with Dr. Phillips again and then I'll start. I'm really looking forward to this rotation because this is the lab I want to be in. I'm hoping it turns out well. I signed the lease for my townhouse today. I really wish I could  move now instead of having to wait until August 1st. It's going to be such a pain hiring movers and carpet cleaners and doing the move-out inspection when everyone else is doing the same thing. The carpet cleaning thing is such a pain, I wish Hunziker would just keep part of my deposit and do it themselves. Ugh. As it is I'll probably have to move all my stuff out on July 30th, get the carpet cleaned either then or early on the 31st, and then have the move out inspection on the 31st, but I can't move in to the new place until August 1st, so I'll have to be able to keep my stuff on the moving truck for two nights, and I'll have to find somewhere to sleep. Hopefully Dan and I will still be together then so I can stay at his place, but who knows. I'm really hoping this is the last time I move for a while because it is such a pain in the butt!

Yesterday it was sunny until the evening and then it rained like crazy. Normally that would be nice, but the abrupt weather change made my sinuses flip out. Today I have a sore throat and my nose constantly feels like I'm about to sneeze, except of course I never actually sneeze. I'm drinking gallons of tea to keep myself hydrated and placate my throat. I have a special blend of tea that also helps with sinus headaches, so I'm waiting for it to be ready as I type this. Ugh, I hate having delicate sinuses. I just needed to complain for a little bit.

Last Saturday afternoon I checked out a townhouse that's for rent. The apartment I'm in now is okay,  but there are too many undergrads and it's too loud. So I looked around and this townhouse came up. It's in a residential area and is surrounded by single family homes. It's really quiet, which is what I want. Then I got to see the actual unit. It's on the end so I only have neighbors on one side. AWESOME. There's a washer and dryer in the unit, the kitchen is nice, there's three bedrooms, and a big bathroom with a linen closet in it. There's also a garage!!! My poor car won't have to sit outside all the time now. And I also get two parking spaces so I can have visitors over without worrying about parking. It's cat friendly obviously because I won't leave Memo behind. Today I got the call that I got it and I'm signing my lease on Thursday! Then I get to move in on August 1st! Somehow I have to figure out how to hire movers and get the carpet cleaned at the old place before my move-out inspection. I have a feeling I'll need a couple of days so hopefully I can find movers that will let me store my crap on the truck for a day or two, and I'll have to find somewhere to crash for a couple nights. Worst case is that I get a hotel room, but maybe I'll be able to crash somewhere. Anyway, I'm getting the place!! YAY!!!

Miss Demeanor and Mischief

Miss Demeanor wasn't feeling very good, so Mischief was concerned and kept her company all day. That is Mischief's concerned collie face. Miss D. is grumpy because she was dehydrated and had to go to the vet to get IV fluids.

First Date!

Soooo...I went on a date yesterday. I kind of surprised myself because I've been terrified of putting myself out there, but I really am ready for a relationship and want to be with someone. My friend Tessa told me that OkCupid wasn't too horrible as far as dating in Iowa went, so I made a profile and said what the hell (thanks Tessa!). The guy I went out with yesterday messaged me there and we started talking, then exchanged phone numbers to arrange a meeting.
I don't want to get too in-depth because obviously there's another person involved and this is a public blog, but I had a really awesome time with him. I really like him, and he likes me, and we're going to arrange a second date. If you want more information then you'll have to talk to me privately! Needless to say, AWESOMENESS! I'm really happy!

I had a pretty boring week so I don't have a lot to talk about. Therefore, here is a picture of my family's new kitten, Carbon. She is little and crazy and adorable. She likes polar fleece and will sit on you for hours if you have a polar fleece blanket.
