Wednesday Boringsday

Wednesday, March 30th, 2011

I stopped drinking coffee. I know. This is very dramatic. But on Monday I decided to stop. And so I did. And now I drink black tea. It makes me feel better emotionally and probably not physically but great news I haven’t fallen asleep in class yet win.

In other news we have been interviewing urban design faculty candidates for a position at penn and I am on the search committee (this is a secret maybe don’t tell anyone) and so I have to go to a lot of meetings and talks and I get a “this seat is reserved for alex sweet” sign which makes me feel the most important. I think I am going to take it with me on the bus/subway. That might be dangerous.

In more news, California is flying me out for some job interviews. I know. This is big news. This is all I know. I don’t even know when. Mostly because I have to tell them when. So. That’s great.

And tomorrow it’s going to rain in Philadelphia.

I think that just about covers it, SarahSweeter anything on your end?

Oh no

Has anyone visited Peter lately? Apparently things are going downhill at Dartmouth Community College. I’m trying to keep his confidence intervals up but all he wants to do is eat raw cake mix and watch the weather channel.

I hate you regression model homework

SarahSweeter Comes to Visit

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2011

SarahSweeter came over this weekend. I only took seven photos. Here they are.

On Friday Sarah arrived and she felt sick and I said are you going to throw up and she said maybe and I said ok first pose in front of the skyline kgreat.

Cousin Rebecca came over and we ate bad eggplant parm pastas and then we went to bed and then Sarah woke up and I said Sarah? And she said, Better! Let’s clean! So we cleaned my room and threw out 3 garbage bags of old clothes, shoes, jackets, and feelings. I feel great.

Then we went out to dinner so we got dressed up and I wanted to dress like twinsies but Sarah said no so instead we just dressed mostly like twinsies and then we went downstairs and walked ten feet to our left and into Ernesto’s which has fancy flowers in the window and we ate squid. Here we are not really twinsies.

Then on Monday I had the anxieties and SarahSweeter said s’ok I go shopping and do the cooking and prepare you food for the week. Here is Sarah making peeta cheeps.

Then it was time to say goodbye and this made me the saddest and I probably didn’t cry but I probably did and then I rode my bike down the hallway to the elevator to go to school. Byeeeeeeeeeeeee

And then Sarah left me an eating chart because sometimes having a lot of food is confusing. Thank god. I’m the luckiest. Here are leftovers.

Here is the food eating chart.

The end.

This is when things start to blend and by things I mean days and by blend I mean blur. ┬áIt’s Friday 1:14am and I was like Friday. Friday. Friday. What’s Friday. Something’s happening Friday. And then I pause. friday…friday…FRIDAY! SARAHSWEETER IS COMING ON FRIDAY!! This is great news. This is also scary news because Friday meant be half way done with Math Homework and right now I am 0% done, which is less than 50% (math is ez). But that’s ok. Grad school isn’t about deadlines it’s about learning amiright? SarahSweeter, please let me know your outfit schedule for today and this weekend so I can plan accordingly and by plan accordingly I mean plan to match. Twinsies! Right now I am thinking earth tone neutrals with pops of color. Or all black. Either way, let’s do our hair in half pony-tail braids. Text me asap. Bec, let me know if you want to get in on this for dinner tonight. Tripletsies? Dream.

In other news. Today I paid $60 to borrow a cap and gown for May 16th at Noon. So close. So far.

I gave myself a 5am deadline. Success. The bad news is my presentation is at 9am. The even badder news is it’s raining. The good news is I put this photo in my presentation. WINAWINAWINAWIN

In a recent conversation with Ma Sweet I was whining (probably) about homework and groceries and laundries and time and she said, I wish I could be there, and I said me too, and she said, I’ll send Sarah. So here comes SarahSweeter to the Philadelphia on Friday. This is great news. I asked what she wanted to do and she sent me this. Can’t wait.
