So I totally love surprises. What I love more is surprising people. Which is what I did today.

The facts were these:

1.) My mom works in Buffalo

2.) Buffalo is half an hour closer to St Bonaventure

3.) My mother was not going to drive all the way back to Lockport to pick me up and then go get Cesca

However, this morning I get a text saying "Hey, I accidentally took an extra hour off of work, want to come with me to pick up Cesca?"

To which I of course replied, "YES!" So off we went. I told my mother it would be fun to surprise her, so I said, "Can I hide in the backseat?" She was worried Cesca would be able to see me from the window, so I suggested the trunk. My mother was none too crazy about this at first, but the closer we got she decided it would be fun!

So we pull over about a minute away and I quickly hop in the trunk. There is a lot less space than you would think in there... I now know what baggage feels like.

Anyway, as I ride in almost complete darkness, I feel the car stop and I hear my sister talking to my mother. My mom says "Just let me put my purse in the trunk." Suddenly, the door is opening and I see my mom's and sister's legs. Then I see Cesca's face- it was first bewilderment, then utter happy shock. She couldn't get over the fact that I had come and was hiding in the trunk! It was so much fun and totally worth a day in the car.

Its gonna be such a good break!

I forgot...

How much I LOVE Pirates of Penzance.

Such a good show. I totally should be studying for legal, which is my last major assignment before break, aside from printing and turning in my AWESOME paper on the evolution of ballet. It is kickass.

I cannot wait to go see Harry Potter tomorrow!!!!! It's gonna be like the longest day ever and I'm gonna be so exhausted Friday. Totally worth it? I think so. Liz even helped me paint my nails (red with little gold dots- so appropriate).

I cannot wait to see my bella! We are gonna have such a great time together and I cannot believe it's been nearly 4 months since I saw her (I don't count the hour I saw her over fall break... it wasn't enough time!)

Then it's 2 more weeks of classes, finals, then LONDON HERE I COME!!!!

Anyway, I should get back to studying. For your enjoyment, here is my favorite song from Pirates- With Cat-Like Tread. It's so ironic that it's funny. Plus they do like 3 encores! And the Pirate King wears purple pants. Who doesn't love purple pants?

Where has the time gone?

Holy crap, it's November

Halloween (complete with awesome costumes) has come and gone.

Shit is getting real.

Things I have to do before Thanksgiving Break (meaning in less than 3 weeks)

1) About 27 homework assignments that I know of, ranging from Legal cases to Marketing and Business letters

2.) Pass 3 exams worth varying percentages of my grade, ranging from 10% to 25%

3.) Grade at least 4 more sets of projects for COMP 110

4.) Apply for my visa and set up my biometrics appointment

5.) Write a 10-15 page paper on something to do with evolution

6.) Start packing up my dorm room so I don't have to bring everything home in one shot before Christmas break

7.) Prepare and present a presentation about a famous Italian person, in Italian

Ok, ok, it doesn't seem like much, but when you consider I have about 17 days to do it, well, that puts me in a fix. I'm trying to stay calm and not freak out, as is my nature, so I've taken to watching scenes from my numerous Phantom bootlegs to calm me down.

This will all be worth it in about 2 months when I am in London. I know it.

Class time. Where has the semester gone?
