that perfect hand…

In Ocean's 11, Danny said that "the house always wins. If you play long enough, never change the stakes, then the house takes you. Unless, when that perfect hand comes along, you bet big… and then, you take the house." Here's the hand I've been dealt, sometimes it's risky and sometimes it's safe, but all the time… it's perfect. It's mine.

this is so stupid it’s awesome


Right before reading break (which was last week), I wrote a midterm for my Weimar and Nazi Germany class (awesome, awesome class). The Prof is a bit of a Nazi (in the loosest sense of the word, he/she’s outta control intense and hard) him/herself so I was nervous about it. When I wrote the lame thing, I all but cried to my mom, etc. over how brutally I did and I even wanted to skip that class today for I knew what was waiting for me. By the time 1:00 pm hit, I had worked myself into a painful acceptance for the 55% I was sure was waiting for me.

I got an A! That NEVER happens. Usually if I say I did bad and felt bad about it, I DID do bad. This is historically stupidly awesome and I want you all to share in my joy! JOY I TELL YOU.

Hip – Hip – HOO-ray!

In other news, Amanda made me chef’s salad for dinner tonight, I got a new basketball, had coffee with a friend, talked to Ang, found out I may have a computer virus which sucks, saw a gorgeous prairie sunset on Jes’ blog, and decided that I need to take some more time to myself.

In other words, sleep tight my friends.

  1. Yay that’s awesome!!! I wish I got A’s when I expected C’s, D’s, F’s … haha. I’m celebrating for you. 🙂

    Found your blog looking at tags, saw your post about your Nana and it was so beautiful. I didn’t get that bonding time with my grandma before she died and I only learned about her later through other people who knew her, so know how very, very lucky and blessed you are. I’m glad you treasure it. Also, I hope you don’t mind if I link to you, I don’t know you or anything but your posts are so fun and upbeat, they make me smile.

    Bless you.

  2. lol…nice work on the A kate! Plus…I think you should definitely come visit! Mark is planning a Lord of the Rings party for d-group tomorrow night (as it is Kaylas 1/2 birthday:)) and I think you should come. Love you
