Happy New Year! 2011 went by so fast and I thoroughly enjoyed it! For New Year’s Eve I boringly stayed at home and watched Ryan Seacrest ring in the New Year. Sadly New York is an hour ahead of where I live so I awkwardly had to wait another hour until I could officially bring in 2012! The Mayans said this will be the last year ever but I have so much I want to do so hopefully they were wrong!
I sadly already broke one of my resolutions. As the clock ticked away, I was biting my nails fervently and totally forgot about my resolution! But as of now, I am officially 3 hours clean of doing it! I’ll get back on track tomorrow, I promise!
On New Year’s Day, after eating with my family, I watched a marathon of Jersey Shore on MTV. Every day for the past week MTV has been showing Jersey Shore almost nonstop in anticipation for the new season premiere on Thursday! I’m pretty excited since there’s supposed to be tons of drama and fun! As part of my Jersey Shore viewing ritual, I plan on going to buy pickles at the grocery store in hopes of being like Snooki, who happens to be obsessed with pickles.
Here is Snooki at her finest taking Anderson Cooper tanning.
This week I have to write three papers. Instead of procrastinating, I actually finished two of them already! I had to write one paper for Chemistry about how I would help the environment if I were elected to be President. It had to be 4-5 pages and actually didn’t take that long to write because I’ve always wanted to be President so I just wrote out what I’ve always wanted to do!
I then wrote a “Personality Profile” for my Writing for Print Media class. I chose to write about my friend Jill who recently ran the Chicago Marathon. I just visited her this past weekend at IU so I got to interview her then and it went well! The last paper, which I will write tonight or tomorrow, is for my First Year Seminar class. I think I am going to write about how “The Troubles” in Ireland affected children. I have to defend my case using two of the texts we have read in class.
This weekend I am going home because I have to get a haircut. I can’t wait to see my friends and family! Last time I went home I had so much fun!
That’s all for today! The elections are tomorrow and I’m sad because I’m still 17 so I’m not old enough to vote yet. But at least I can vote in the Presidential election in two years!

This is me and some of my friends the last time I went home. It was at the Homecoming football game.
