We had our first snow of the season last night!!
It's so super cold outside it's painful, but it's also really, really pretty. I feel bad complaining too much- I just have no tolerance for cold. I hate it more than I hate having my shoelaces tied together. And that is a strong hate.
Here's the view from my dorm window!
Also, for a community service project the girls in one of my classes went to a women's shelter in town. We played in the snow with kids!
And made cookies!
and tambourines out of bowls and dried peas!
Also, some of you may remember that I promised a special post,
and it's still gonna happen! Scheduling is just so crazy difficult. I'll let you all know when it arrives!
Wish me luck for this week! We begin finals, and it's gonna be a doozy!
Please do not confuse my excitement with absolute joy. I am partially devastated that some of my classes are over. With only one or two exceptions that receive only partial affection, I really, really love my classes this semester. My acting class has been a wonderful experience, as it was one of the smaller, more intimate classes. I'll have a lot of contact with most of my theater teachers after this semester, but there are even more of my teachers that I won't have the opportunity to hang out with as much. And honestly, I've been lucky to have a quirky bunch of teachers I really enjoy.

I'd just like to mention how amazing advent calendars are.
Thank you, Mommy, for being wonderful and getting me my own advent calendar for my dorm. It really feels like Christmas- plus it reminds me that I need to go Christmas shopping!!
Don't you all love Christmas traditions?
Bad news, guys!
For some reason my card reader doesn't really work anymore, so I can't share with you the photos from my fun-filled Friday night.
Hopefully I can get it to work soon, otherwise my blog will be pretty bare- and I have pie-themed pictures I want to share!
Friday was opening night for Meet Me in St. Louis and I really enjoyed myself! My high school theater was very low-key, as was the college's program nearby, so it was something of a shock to see how nicely a school theater could pull together a musical without being flawed. Besides the cast doing an immaculate job, the show itself is just too cute to handle. If you haven't seen it you definitely should!
I'm going to attempt snagging some photos of the set for you all, just because, once again, the set is completely awesome.
I want to say it's awful, as in "Full of Awe", but unfortunately English doesn't work that way.
It's very strange, and I'm mostly blaming the fact that Christmas Break is right around the corner, but I am so impatient these days. I find myself tip-tapping my toes before it's time to go to bed so I can rush over to the next day, and so on and so on.
Like I said, I'm blaming the hours and hours of delicious sleep waiting for me once I'm back in Kentucky.
Plus I'm super excited to get into shenanigans with these fellas:
That's my stepdad Ben on the left, me in the middle, and Truchi (the BoyFran) on the right.
What a FunBunch.
Also! Please don't think I've forgotten that special post I promised. It'll be up this week!
Hope you all have had a great, great weekend! Mine was pretty great.

I'll give you the simple, detail-less version of my week.
Last week was Fall/Thanksgiving Break, which was awesome.
I have only two photos- I seriously need to start documenting my life better.
My sister Sadie at Thanksgiving! I think she's getting so pretty! It was just magical hanging out with my three year old. She's the funniest kid I know, too.
And I saw my boyfriend Truchi!!
If you remember this post you'll recall how Truchi and I split for a while,
and that split actually only ended up lasting about a month or so. Needless to say it's been a rough time as far as our relationship goes, as we live about 11 hours apart now, and it was so great to finally see him after all these months.
But now that I'm back in school, I'm really feeling the negative effects of having such a wonderful break.
As one of my good pals said, I've had a bite of the dessert, and now I have to trudge through the meat and potatoes of finals week to take another bite. This has been the longest week I've had since starting school. There's just so many loose ends to tie up and final papers to tweak, not to mention I've begun rehearsals for a student directing scene, which we perform in about two weeks.
But I have a treat for you guys! I'm changing my ways a little on the blog this weekend, so be sure to stop by for a fun post!
I hope your week was wonderful- either that, or your weekend is!!
