So, I decided that I could actually do it in Microsoft Powerpoint and be able to totally rock some socks. I feel like it still needs a little work, but it’s finished for the most part. Might try to find a way to post it on here to see what you guys think, get some feedback and such while I still have time to fix it.
stupid stepmom of yours. and I suggested both so that he’d have a hard copy and a digital :D if you want, I have a scanner so I could help you scan them if you need, or you could go to Hussey-Mayfield :D
Oh! That makes sense. xD And either one of those options would work. I don’t know when I’m going to have a chance to see him yet.
coeurdesfeuilles answered your question:Father’s Day
yay for him coming home!! I really hope your stupid step-mom doesn’t get in the way of seeing him. Also, maybe you could do both?
Yeah, my aunt tried to even tell her (well…she told my grammy but my stepmom was right there.) that I really wanted to see Dad. At some point I’ll get to see him. It’s just a question of when and for how long.
And maybe. I just realized I don’t have video editing software on my computer so I might be forced to default. xD Currently just trying to collect quotes but we’ll see. If I do a booklet, I might try to sketch the pictures. If I do a video I’ll use the pics that I have on my computer and try to take pictures of the others (no scanner). In total there are about 10 or less but it’s funny how we changed over 19 years. Granted, the years of me being like 6-14 aren’t photographed but that’s alright. I’ll take what I have.
I could do both I suppose but they were both the same basic idea. It’s just what medium I’m using if that makes sense.
Some of you probably haven’t even thought about it, but it is in fact coming up soon. In my case, before the actual day. My dad is in the military and has been deployed since December of 2010. Tomorrow he’s supposed to be coming home to Indiana for a couple weeks so I’ll hopefully be able to see him. I figure, I should just give him a Father’s Day present while he’s home than trying to figure out postage and such.
My dad and I really connect with each other using quotes. We both have great appreciation for the wise words of other people, or song lyrics even. So, I’m thinking about doing either a video or a book with pics of us in chronological order (there aren’t very many so it’s kind of a big deal) and quotes that I think are awesome that he might be able to connect with. The question is:
One of the greatest things that you have taught me is that it’s okay to be a nerd. It’s okay to find a fascination in something. Whether it’s math, environments, science, medicine, literature, poetry, or even last words. These things that some find “weird” are what makes all…
So, I definitely went to the track today. It was a complete and total blast.
My stepdad invited me to go with him and my papaw. My stepdad works for a liquor company and through business relations and such, Apex-Brasil (they supply ethanol for the race) invited us along with many other people to the race with VIP seats. Not a bad gig right? So this morning we met with them to take a bus to the track which is where we met at the hospitality tent and had breakfast. We also heard some brief words from Tony Kanaan (Apex is one of his sponsors.) Then we headed to Pit Row. Which was already awesome because…I mean, it’s Pit Row. Plus, some of the cars were already in their Pit Lanes and such. It got so much better though.
I got to sit in Buddy Rice’s car and press the brake while they practiced tire changes. It was really really awesome.
Maybe I’ll post more about this later and add some pictures. For now, I’m tired.
So I was hanging out with my boyfriend last night watching a movie when my head started to hurt really bad. Then my throat started doing that whole scratchy thing where it scratches and it hurts, but your sinuses feel the same way? It was not a good combination. Next thing I know, Ben’s like, “You’re running a fever. Come on, taking you home so you can go to bed.” Feeling a little better in the sense that I’m not running a fever and I’m not like “ugh…*plop in my bed and don’t even move to grab blankets*” but honestly, my throat hurts more now than it did last night. Kind of wondering if I’m getting the virus that my cousin just got over. Which means I’m in for some congestion anytime now. :/ I just want my throat to stop hurting, that’s all.
Yes, you read the correctly. That, my friends, was dinner last night. My aunt and cousins had one at the State Fair last year and decided to take their own spin on it. So, they slice a krispy kreme in half, put a burger on the sticky side, add some bacon, and the other half of the donut. So…it’s clearly a heart attack on a plate, but people have eaten worse. And if you only eat one, then what’s the harm? (I can only do one anyway do to my low tolerance for sweet things.) It was surprisingly tasty. Not even going to lie. Didn’t even need any condiments.
So, last night I was reading my favorite John Green book, Looking for Alaska, when I noticed that a word was missing in a sentence. It read “Do I have convince you…” At first, my brain automatically added in the word “to”, but then I realized something wasn’t right and read it again. Normally, I feel kind of awesome when I find a typo in a book. It’s not because I’m like “Oh man, you guys suck for not seeing that” or anything even close to that. It’s just the idea that I may have caught something that someone else didn’t. Catching typos/etc in newspapers and magazines make a little bit more sense, but with a book they’ve been reviewed multiple times both by the author and by editors. Which is why when I find something like that, I feel great for having caught something that wasn’t caught during the editing process. So, immediately I tweeted:
MarisaH92: Sometimes I find typos in books and it makes me feel like a genius. Although…it was a @realjohngreen book. :/
To be totally honest, I felt a little bad for some reason. I don’t even know why, but I did. Well, immediately one of my friends asked where the typo was and then I got a tweet from John Green also asking. He also asked if it was a first edition, which I found out that it was. (If you’re wondering, it’s on page 170.) Then John said:
@MarisaH92 thanks! emailing the editor to make sure it was fixed.
I feel awesome. This is also why twitter is amazing. Yes, I found a typo. I could’ve not said anything at all and just kept it quiet, but instead I tweeted about it. Then received a response from the author himself asking where it was. And now, (if it hadn’t been caught in later editions), it will be fixed for future editions. Not going to lie, but I totally did a happy “Omg I affected change” dance.
So my roommate from last year (who used to be a best friend of mine…is now just a friend) decided to change her room for next year due to complications and such. I totally understand where she’s coming from. In a lot of ways, I agree with her. However…couldn’t she have at least talked to me first? I don’t do well with new people usually, and now all of a sudden I’m going to be in a room with someone that I don’t know. (Provided that I’m assigned a roommate.) Honestly, it might turn out to be completely fine, but I really wish she would’ve warned me first.
Well, at least I’ll know what it’s like to have a random roommate. And, I still have the same room that I picked earlier this year. (Yay for air conditioning and a semi-private bathroom.) I’m just hoping that this person likes leaving on the weekends a lot or whatever. Because…I never leave (due to lack of transportation.) And there are times that I really like chilling out alone. Well, we’ll see what happens.
