GUESS WHAT?!? WE ARE THE OLDEST BEANS ALIVE!!!!!! Hey, y’all! It’s really more like my brother is a growing young bean that makes us feel old (he’s three years younger than us). AND NOW A JUNIOR IN HIGH SCHOOL WHAT THE WHAT EVEN?!? O.O 

He’s really confused about why, but we threw him an “upperclassmen party” which means we made him cupcakes and sausage balls and played a card game that I only know adults to play outside of our group of friends. It was great and I hope he appreciates it. We even gifted him a beautiful guide to his classes this coming year! I hope he does, too; there was some great advice in that book. Each class got five rules, and they were specified to the teacher since he’s at such a tiny school. He better love it and us forever. 😉 

Seriously, hopefully, this year is great for him and for the rest of us folk returning to school. Amen! I hope it goes well for everyone and they learn a ton and have fun while doing it!

Keep your pencils on go and your brains on caffeine! ❤ 😉 😀 ;P O.O 🙂

Drive safely along your educational journey! ❤

WHAT TIME IS IT? SUMMER TIME!

Hey, y’all!!! Sorry if I’m a little overeager today, but this week has marked the end of a HUGE accomplishment for us. WE ARE NO LONGER CHILDREN IN THE WORLD OF COLLEGE!!! (aka we completed our first year and are both now at least sophomores 😀 ) Yes we are. Sophomore year is still terrifying to come up because we get to start all over again (I mean, sorta… but at least we know where the least cringe elevators are in a lot of buildings lol, so true), but that doesn’t matter because we are DONE for now. YAASSS!!! 😀

With that, naturally we have stopped using our cognitive processing for at least the first couple weeks of summer. I’ve stopped being able to talk (I apparently cannot type, so this post is a huge accomplishment 😉 ), and we have resorted to filling our time with easier (read as: mindless) and more fun activities (which is anything as long as we’re together instead of me being 130 miles away 😉 AMEN ) .

To be more specific, however, we’ve both taken up playing a few games on our phones or computers. The common games have to do with something near and dear to most everyone’s hearts…pets! The one we both have is Neko Atsume, which is a cat specific game, but ACG is into a game that includes a massive variety of animals. It defies gravity (*restrains my inner musical nerd* #Wicked), so I appreciate that along with the multiple kinds of animals. Also, I got conned into getting Neko Atsume, but I appreciate it so much that I forget AJA “tricked” me into it. ;P (We were talking, and she told me to get it, so I did it on blind faith. Got that right! It was a suggestion! )

Other games we’ve recently enjoyed is an Inside Out game Thought Bubbles, and if you remember summer 2015, you’ll know we loved Inside Out very much! The game is just as cute as the movie, although slightly more infuriating once you get to level 38. @) I think ACG has a version of Candy Crush, she’s playing too. Soda Saga. I can’t stand find the bears, and currently eat the chocolate is eating my lunch, but it’s fine.

I’m sure by the end of this phase we will have found even more games to play, but for now I think we’ve covered them, except AJA has more cat specific games she can tell you all about. 🙂 DON’T MURDER YOUR CATS LIKE I DO BY RUNNING INTO THE SPIKES. MAKE YOUR FINGER MORE ATTRACTIVE. PET YOUR KITTENS REGULARLY! DON’T FORGET YOU HAVE COINS!!!!!!!!!!! Ahem. It’s called Play With Cats, if you’re into that sort of thing. 😉 Blame my college roommate. For probably more than just that game, but that’s for another time. (I’m just kidding, she’s chill.) I don’t have that cat games, but they’ve been cool to observe. Gotta love distracting yourself from reality through pixels, lol.

Drive safely, and don’t play with cats while doing so. 😉 ❤

Keep your cats in pixels and your pixels in the nail polish!  🙂 ;P 😀 ❤ 😉 :O O.o

Summer…Summer…Summer…

Hey, y’all! For students everywhere summer is closing in, weeks and maybe days away. In fact, a lot of people are already out for summer. And believe us, we are ready to join them. By this time next week, we will have that opportunity and boy are we going to seize the freedom that summer brings (even if at least one of us needs to find a job, ahem. me). RED VELVET WAFFLES!!!

Sorry about that, I’m excited. But we have a list and plan to get it done. All that means is that we have to get through…*drum roll please*….FINALS. They’re stressful, they stink, and some of them are actually just projects instead which is a nice break. And sometimes professors are really nice and make finals that have cheat sheets or in my case open notes and bring your own device. Sometimes they even make finals optional, like one of my roommate’s finals! So, hopefully we both will survive and so will anyone else facing finals.

Keep your brains in the cabinet and your Reese’s in the freezer. 🙂 😀 😉 O.o 😛 ❤ 🙂

Drive safely ❤

P.S. GOOD LUCK if you have your own finals or even just tests coming up!

Misaligned Break

It’s SPRING! And…the weather here almost believes that for once. No kidding. Hey, y’all! Not only is it spring, but it’s spring break!!! Well, it’s my spring break. Unfortunately, ACG’s spring break was the week before last and I was not home for it. Shhhhhhhhh, details. However, I am home this week 

However, I am home this week and we have a list of things we’d like to do when our schedules (mainly ACG’s ;)) allow. 

  1. Make waffles for breakfast (or lunch) at least one time because our waffles are a blast to make and delicious to eat.
  2. Yoga…and tennis. Mainly because I’ve recently taken to being active and those are the easiest ways to con ACG into joining me ;). 
  3. Looking at the stars because even if it isn’t school time, AJA is a nerd and takes astronomy this semester. She’s determined to make me physically active and learn about Aristotle. (I’d like to point out that Aristotle is from my philosophy class…and some logic in astronomy… but that’s not the point. ;P) 
  4. Get some practical things done, some plans made for the future, including me finally getting my license…maybe…finally… O.O
  5. More binge watching. Season 3 of 5 is underway, and this week could be key to finishing. (Thank you, Netflix.)

With ACG still having classes this week, that’s a whole lot to get done, but I can’t wait to try and accomplish it all. It’s just school, challenge accepted. 😉 This weekend has already been a great kickstart. 

Keep your dogs in the clouds and your signs on the floor. ❤ 🙂 😛 😉 😀 O.o

Drive safely in all your spring (break) plans! 😉 ❤

Lessons on a Lazy Weekend

Good evening! Hey, y’all!

Life is full of lessons…and not all of them are that vital to your well being or happen during big moments. Sometimes they happen on a lazy weekend like we’ve had…in the celebration of ACG’s spring break, of course ;). The only thing that would make spring break better is if the colleges lined them up, but that’s another rant. Maybe that can be next week’s post, lol. But for now… We’d like to share with you some of things we’ve learned as of late.

 

  1. Never doubt the power of a hug. Or good coffee, but ACG drinks more than me, so I’ll stick with the hugs.
  2. Online classes are messed up; sometimes you find out someone who has not responded to any of your group project work is still in your group after weeks but hasn’t responded because of extenuating circumstances.

  3. Not making your bed won’t result in your death…most likely. So, don’t waste your time. 😉 It’s precious and the universe doesn’t know if your comforter is spread smooth.

  4. Binge watching really is fun. Finishing season one of your new favorite TV show is totally worth leaving you with four hours of sleep.

  5. The best plans are the last minutes ones. ❤ Or, at least, that was how this weekend seemed.

 

Yeah, it was last minute, totally unprepared, and completely a blast. Adventures are great, but so are lazy day weekends. Much better than going to a cold wet baseball game.

Drive safely. ❤

Paint your homework with ostrich eyelashes, and write your canvas in pixels. 🙂 😛 😉 😀 ❤ 🙂 😀 ;P

Information Translation

Good evening! Hey, y’all!

Our Important Question of The Night is: Do you prefer pencil or pens? Or, how about chalk, markers, or a slim device to clutch while delivering information? Pens for sure, and I’m not sure about the second part. I guess I prefer a device while speaking. I have no preference anymore really. A nice pencil with the right lead will always get the job done in my opinion. But the others aren’t really things most people run into everyday, unless they possess a certain job: instructing.

From elementary school levels to doctoral programs, most instructors have to pick a teaching medium. My favorite in elementary were the smart boards, especially when my teacher spent part of her planning period to make graphics dance to greet us when we got back for class. In my opinion, chalkboards were always so interesting. I think it’s because they denote a “classic” style of teaching. Agreed, but I never had that until high school to know. It’s really intriguing.

This post might seem a bit random. However, while we have had posts that are just random, I feel like this is interesting to reflect on since we are both nearing the end of our first semester in college (yikes times eight!!! Ahhhhhhhh O.O). I know that I personally have experienced a variety of mediums in my classes.

It totally isn’t random. One of the biggest challenges for preparing for exams has been figuring out how to translate the material given us into a way we can understand then back into a way to show on tests. For me that’s meant rewriting everything. For ACG, she gets a little creative… My psychology information is currently splashed across my bedroom door in rainbow chalk. My bedroom door was painted with chalkboard specifically for scenarios like this. Exactly because it is best to make use of the many, many different mediums to transpose information. I also like to type information out from study guides that the amazing professors like to give for tests.

These are just some random meanderings and thoughts about information mediums. Some are more old school like chalkboards, but like me, some of those same chalkboard fans can still appreciate the technological opportunities that have been provided. In the classrooms there are combinations of most every method present, but how we choose to translate that best for our learning is completely up to us.

So, wish us luck with all of this as we study for finals. Good luck to y’all for every test or quiz y’all may be facing. Keep your worms in the cookie jar and your lights in the trees. ❤ 🙂 😀 😉 😛 O.o  

Drive safely. ❤

Things We’ve Learned: First Month of College Edition

Aloha! I have returned and did NOT die of The Plague or any other illness. I told y’all… shame shame for the disbelievers *tsks*.

I’m just kidding. Hey, y’all! So, today we want to tell you what we’ve learned from our first month as freshmen, kind of like we did as seniors (I think. I’m bad with times and memories sometimes. Yes! Very similar to that, which totally happened because I checked tonight prior to this post for fear that I imagined that. 🙂)

Personally, I don’t feel like there’s much other background information to be given other than take everything we say with a grain of salt as this is our very first semester and we are BABIES! Infants. We aren’t even college toddlers yet.

  • It is okay to eat lunch by yourself. It may not be ideal for every day, but every once in a while in the right conditions it isn’t horrible. Don’t feel bad about it.
  • You will experience a strange sense of constant human interaction and constant loneliness. This doesn’t really seem to be affected by being around people or not being around them. It just is.
  • The classes are more intensive than high school classes, but even at big schools the professors don’t not care about you. They will still work with you as long as you aren’t acting like a disrespectful moron in the class and show up to it.
  • You actually learn, rather than get constantly wrangled and corralled by different faculty. You’re all paying to be there. It’s a choice, not a requirement by parents or otherwise.
  • People just hang out on campus. (And I don’t mean the ones that live there.) They just go find a couch in the student center and sit? Or they do homework? I don’t understand. At all.
  • If you live on campus, you actually have a nicer weekday experience in my opinion because there is no having to leave early enough or stay late. Most places are in a less than ten minute walk, and you can always nap midday if necessary and if you have a break between classes. 😉
  • The upperclassmen I have classes with are more chill and less showily problematic it seems like. Like, the freshmen I hear have to prove themselves by showing out every other word.

 

This list really does not encapsulate the full range experiences you have your first month of college at all. However, these are some pretty accurate experiences that both ACG and I have witnessed. So, for now, pursue higher education and drive safely. ❤

Keep your Jell-O in the car and your cacti in the refrigerator. 😀 😉 😛 ❤ 🙂 :’D

PS – This was posted at 12:12 AM Sunday morning, so in some time zones still Saturday night 😉 …just not ACG’s and mine.
