I can’t believe that I am going to tour another college today. After all of the riff raff that I’ve gone through to get into The University of Alabama, I am going to visit UAB tomorrow. I even did an application, and paid a $30 application fee. I’ve been very tight with my money lately, but for some reason it is still disappearing. Any who, I just feel like I NEED to check out at least one other school to make sure I am making the right decision. If I like UAB, and what they are about then I’ll try to go there, but if not UA is where the heart is. There are pros and cons for both schools. I just don’t know. Ugh! I feel a bit iffy, but this is something I have to do for me. It must be done!

Late Night Special

Its almost 5 in the morning and I’m still up. WTF??? ugh! I think I have a sleeping disorder. I’m still thinking about school and going away and everything. I’m excited, so excited that I can’t stop thinking about it to go to sleep like a normal person. I’m going to do a little bit of dorm shopping this weekend, mostly for storage type things since it is on sale. I think I’m going to wait and talk to my future roommate before I get a comforter and stuff, because I will not be able to tolerate a tacky room. I also plan on getting the new 5th generation iPod nano this weekend. My iPod nano is 2nd generation, and its time to get a new one. I’m going to get the pink one. It has a video camera on it, which is so cool! I’m going to save up my money so that I can get the camera that I want instead of just settling for one. I know I did a long post about cameras, but I really want the Cyber shot h20, so I’m going to save up for it and hopfully I’ll have it by Christmas.

Ready 2 GO!!!

I received my University of Alabama acceptance letter last Tuesday, and since then my mind has been in over drive. I’m pretty sure about 20 more of my hairs have turned gray. I’ve got to make good grades while I’m in school over here, and plan for moving in January. I have to find out what dorm I’ll be staying in, and buying stuff for the room. I’m not going to go over board. I’m just going to get what I need, and the basics. I’m going to start shopping for things this weekend because I know Walmart and Target have really good sales going on. I’m looking for the following:

Bed Comforter

Twin XL sheets (2 sets)

Storage (3 tier, plastic storage boxes, underbed storage)

Towels & washclothes

Everything else I’ll worry about as time progresses.

I’m excited about this new chapter in my life, although I’m a bit late, but better late than never! : )
