Hey everyone! Its almost the weekend - thank goodness. It is final's week here at college, and I'm so ready for it to be over. My first final is tomorrow at 8 am aka the worst time ever to take a test. I'm done on Monday, but I'm going to be on campus until Wednesday, so I'm excited just to relax. I can't believe that I'm halfway through my college career; it doesn't seem real to me yet.
Also , I did want to tell you two funny encounters I had the other day, both of which involving little kids.
1.) Sometimes I baby-sit my boss' daughter, who is about 8. She is such a great kid, really full of energy. While we at the playground the other day, she was telling me about this doll she had with her; it was a fashion doll, but it was supposed to be a monster. I have never seen anything like this before and I was torn whether it was creepy or cool (the verdict is still out on that). Her doll was a vampire and is able to hang upside, just like a bat would do. She had it hanging from the monkey bars and I said, "Don't let her hang upside down too long or all the blood will go to her head" - the same thing my mother would say to me when I would hang upside down when I was little. Anyway, my boss' daughter goes, "Laaauura, don't be silly. She doesn't have any blood; she drinks everyone else's blood!"
By the way, these dolls are called Monster High and the vampire doll is called Draculaura! I about peed my pants when I saw that. I may or may not have a picture of Draculaura as my Facebook cover photo right now. And by that, I mean I definitely do.
2.) I'm walking out of the cafe where I usually study and these two little boys are holding the doors. I thanked them and they said "Two dollars please or you cannot get through!" I told them, "I don't have two dollars." (A total lie, but hey, when you are in college two dollars can get you far). But, I looked in my bag and I offered them a mint or a little key chain flashlight. They wanted the flashlight, so I handed it to them and then continued back to my dorm. I got halfway down the stairs when I realized that the flashlight I gave them was from PCAR, which stands for Pennsylvania Coalition Against Rape. I had gotten it from the domestic abuse and sexual assault shelter that I volunteer at.
I really hope they can't read yet.
Hope you enjoyed the lovely pictures Miss Amy and I took at the campus museum!
