    Re: I Have...

    Haha we were visiting some missionary family friends in Guatemala and we hiked a volcano one day. We got to the top after a pretty lengthy hike and cooked hot dogs over the lava. There's a sandy spot where you could run down the volcano and we decided to do that. I was trying to win the "race" and.. well yeah I basically rolled my way down for awhile lol. Had so much volcano crap in my arms

    not on the weekends, no. Haha! Actually I'm usually asleep by now on Fridays, but I like to stay up as late as I can. Makes me feel like a college kid again!

    I got in the top 5 at the state Spelling Bee, and would have gone to DC and been mocked on ESPN if I'd won. I probably should have studied some, I think you can get scholarships for that.

    I also peed on the St. Louis Arch.

Knowing I was uber hung-over and sick, she opened the bottle and just to torture me (she was a worldly sophomore and I was just a punk freshman), took a swig and gargled it. Ack, I nearly threw up. To this day the smell of Jim Beam, or the mere mention of Jim Beam, transports me back to that moment. I am probably pale just typing this.
    I threw up just insane amounts the next day. I was so dumb - I was going gargle-for-gargle with a guy who outweighed me by at least two times. HE was so drunk that he laid down naked in the doorway of his apartment that night while his fiance and her sister tried to move him, so you can imagine that I was not in a good way. I can't even hear the words "Jim Beam" without feeling icky.

    The physics were trickier for me than they will be for you, so I definitely recommend it. Very freeing.

    Re: I Have...

    I forgot about this one. Every college student's worst nightmare...

    I arrived for a class only to find out it was the midterm! It was on the syllabus but I hadn't looked at it for a while and for some reason I don't think it had been announced at the previous lecture, because I pretty much went to all the lectures.

    I immediately panicked, but thought, "Oh well, I guess I'll have to retake this course." They passed out the test and I start going through it and thinking, "Hey, I know this." or on the multiple choice I was able to narrow it down to one or two likely answers. Then there were extra credit questions at the end. To make a long story short (too late, I know), I ended up getting a score of 110 out of 100 (because of the extra credit).

    The course was cartography and I've always loved maps, looking at maps, etc. So I had some pre-existing knowledge of the subject which obviously helped.

    When I got the test/results it was the weirdest feeling. Something like a combination of extreme relief and self-giggling...


    No matter what, I could NEVER cheer for Dirt and Urine.

    This is great. I had something similar in History 201 at ISU. I didn't attend many lectures and had the test at 11 am Monday morning. I didn't learn about this until Monday morning at about 1 AM. I panicked, stayed up til 7 AM, trying to memorize as much as I could. The test was 50% terms/people and 50% essay. I studied the crap outta the terms and people so I knew I would do well on that then hope I could BS the essay. On the essay, I knew enough to write maybe a paragraph. I basically said the exact same thing 5-6 paragraphs in a row and thought oh well. Try again next time.

    When the test was returned to me, I got 99/100.

    I once had a threesome... and not the cool kind!

    Oh wait, that was The Todd from Scrubs.


    I was a victim of a series of accidents, as are we all.
