back to school....

School starts again next week. It's the last semester for me! I can't believe it's finally here. I am glad I only have 9 hours this semester. And one class is an independant study class that only meets 4 times a semester.
I have my syllabus for my capstone class and it's a killer. While I can believe the amount of work involved, good grief! It's bad when an instructor states that if you don't have 12 hours a week for homework don't take the class. But I'm ready.

Yea for u! The almost done feeling is the best almost as good as the done feeling. If u get too stressed we can go out for a mai thai.

Did you see the mai tai? It was huge! And obviously, you got to hear about me being loopy. BUT IT WASN'T FROM THE MAI TAI! I swear!

Lesley said...

Hey, I want to hear about the mai tai! And you being loopy! (sniff, sniff) I want to be there!!

I ate lunch with Mom awhile back and ordered a mai tai. And no, I don't do it to shock you Mom. I like the occasional grown up drink when I'm having a grown up lunch. This mai tai was the size of my head! I couldn't finish it and was feeling a little loopy. After the buzzy feeling wore off I was still goofy and was silly all through Best Buy. Maybe fruity drinks make you fruity. But damn it was a BLISSFUL mai tai!

Sarah said...

Yes i saw the mai tai. She kept telling me i could order whatever i wanted. I like to drink but i have my limits. 11.15 am is too early for me. I usually dont do any drinking before 5pm. Just a boundary i set for myself after celebrating my 21st bday and being done with phase. That was a day! Maybe ill tell u about it sometime.

I don't think I've EVER had a mai tai before!

What's capstone?

At wsu it's the classes you take your final semester that pull everything you are supposed to have learned all together. It's a crazy amount of work.
Here's one Mai tai recipe. NO WONDER I felt odd.

1 1/2 oz Barcardi Light Rum
3/4 oz Triple Sec
3/4 oz orgeat syrup
3 oz orange juice
3 oz pineapple juice
splash bacardi 151 rum
splash dark rum

fill glass with ice. add light rum, triple sec, orgeat, orange juice, and pineapple juice: quick stir. Splash the 151 and dark rum on top, do not stir.

Never had one either. But good luck on your last semester. I'm so looking forward to going back to school.....hopefully in the next year or so.
