A big snow storm is about to hit, and everyone's talking about having a snow day tomorrow. I love snow days, because then I don't feel guilty for staying home during the week. And I believe that in order to get a snow day, you must do the following four things:
1. Wear your pajamas inside out.
2. Open your freezer door and do the chicken dance in front of it.
3. Flush an ice cube down the toilet.
4. Sleep with a spoon under your pillow.
That, my friends, will earn you a snow day. Hopefully.

Alyssa Barlow was kind enough to share with her twitter followers that she and her sisters will be playing at the Apple store in Chicago on December 12th. I was super excited to discover that the 12th was a Saturday, meaning I could actually go! But then. But then I realized that oh, what's that, I'm supposed to be taking the ACT that day. The lovely, horrible, wonderful, disgusting ACT. So what's to do but skip the ACT. And I know, you're probably thinking that I'm a slacker. And while that is true to a degree, I have made one of my infamous lists - you have to make a list - weighing the pros and cons, and hello, BarlowGirl wins. Pretty much a no brainer.
-I've already taken the ACT twice.
-I improved my score the second time I took it.
-I've already been accepted to my first choice school with the score I have now.
-I used a fee waiver for the test, so I won't be losing money.
-BarlowGirl is cooler than the ACT. That's a given.

About a month ago, I sent in my application to my number one choice school for college, and...Drum roll please...Yesterday, I got my acceptance letter!! I about died of relief and happiness. I can finally breathe again, after feeling like I've been holding it in since October 15th. To be honest, I was extremely nervous. While my grades have been alright as of late, I didn't take my freshman and sophomore years as seriously as I should have, and now, it's practically impossible to salvage my GPA. My only saving grace was my ACT score, which, in retrospect, still isn't that great. I was unsure if I'd get in, but was hoping I would, because I don't know what I'd do or where I'd go if this school wasn't an option. And it's an incredible feeling because to be accepted means you're acceptable, and who doesn't want to be that?

Last night, I got the flu or some bug, so I didn't go to school today. I came downstairs to lay on the couch at around 10:00 AM, and I'm all settled in with a blanket and a pillow, and... Thunk, boom, crash. And it's coming from the basement, which is where my rabbit's cage is kept. My stomach was in so much pain, I was ready to down an entire bottle of ibuprofen (but I didn't-only took four). But because I suspected that my rabbit, Marley, had gotten out of her cage, I got up and went to the basement stairs. As I'm slipping a pair of flip flops on and clomping my way down the stairs, I hear a big clatter, and then nothing, silence. By the time I get downstairs, I can clearly see that the door to Marley's cage is open, and wherever she is in the basement, she's not making any noise. So I try calling her name, pleading with this rabbit to please come out so I can go back upstairs and lay down.
