  • April Fools, you're almost a senior!..........but seriously, you're almost a senior

    apeteani on Alyssa's Bloggety-blog-blog
    While curled in the fetal position on my bed I contemplated the outcome of my upcoming senior year. Every worry I could ever have began running through my head like a freight train. Where am I going to live? Where am I going to work? How am I going to pay my bills? All of […]

  • An Actual Spring-like Break

    apeteani on Alyssa's Bloggety-blog-blog
    Well I thought I’d never see the day but the temperature here is climbing to high 40s and low 50s, just in time for spring break! Despite the relaxation associated with spring break I’ve been doing the opposite, working a lot of hours to earn more money! I’ve also had some time to think, and […]

  • A Radical Change of Heart

    apeteani on Alyssa's Bloggety-blog-blog
    So, in a bizarre turn of events I have radically changed my future plans. I want to go into nursing. Yes. Nursing. For so many years I’ve held a lot of strengths that I couldn’t quite find a linear job to accommodate: warm, friendly, outgoing, likes people and a fast walker. When I took all of […]

    Flash Mob Time
    apeteani on Alyssa's Bloggety-blog-blog
    My god. Another beautiful day. I’m starting to feel a little spoiled now! Walking up to campus this morning I felt like a million bucks. Everyone seemed a little bit happier, it would’ve been an amazing moment to randomly break out into song and dance. Yes, that is a dream of mine. During Halloween I waited […]

  • The Sun? Totally Forgot What That Looked Like

    The Sun? Totally Forgot What That Looked Like
    apeteani on Alyssa's Bloggety-blog-blog
    Today is wonderful day because the sun has finally shown its face. I can already catch a glimpse of the spring. Oh yes, spring. I’m so excited. Finally I’ll be able to walk out of my house in a cardigan or t shirt instead of 10 pounds of winter gear. The spring semester is very interesting. […]

  • Start of the Spring Semester

    apeteani on Alyssa's Bloggety-blog-blog
    Spring semester of my junior year has finally rolled around and it’s hitting me how close I am to my senior year. It’s scary. So many questions about where I want to go and what I want to do. My classes are awesome, I’m taking 3 classics classes, 1 Art history class and a CDAE […]

  • My Life is Meme

    My Life is Meme
    apeteani on Alyssa's Bloggety-blog-blog
      For those of you who don’t know what a Meme is here is the urbandictionary  definition: “A ‘meme’ doesn’t have to be funny, provocative or even make sense. Most memes fall into one of three categories: – ‘Quirky’ stuff that isn’t funny. – Pathetic stuff that fills you with vicarious despair. – Revolting pictures that […]

  • The Blackest of Fridays

    apeteani on Alyssa's Bloggety-blog-blog
    I will never understand why people feel the need to get themselves into such a tizzy over Black Friday. People get mugged, pepper sprayed, mauled, run over and even killed because of mob mentality surrounding Black friday. So you get some good deals, but are they really ‘deals’ when you consider the cost of your […]

  • Spring Semester Classes

    apeteani on Alyssa's Bloggety-blog-blog
    I had an absolute meltdown during registration yesterday morning. Registration begins at 7 and as everyone knows the first 30 seconds is crucial to either having a crappy semester or the best semester of your college career. Ok. Maybe it’s not quite that dramatic. But still, it’s pretty important to get on there as close […]

  • Thanksgiving Break!!!

    apeteani on Alyssa's Bloggety-blog-blog
    I am so beyond excited for Thanksgiving Break to get here. I am planning on having a big Thanksgiving with all of my friends before we all go home and everyone is bringing something. I think about 30 people are going to be there so it’s going to be seriously crowded in my apartment! We […]

  • Already Thinking About Summer...

    apeteani on Alyssa's Bloggety-blog-blog
    I’m at that stage in my college career when I’m beginning to become obsessed with the future; What am I doing after school? Where am I going to live? How am I going to pay my bills? Ugh. These thoughts are so troubling I actually stay up thinking about it at night. It’s scary. All […]

  • HALLOWEEN WEEKEND!

    apeteani on Alyssa's Bloggety-blog-blog
    I am beyond excited because Monday is Halloween and that means an entire weekend of costumes, candy and FUN!! Halloween at UVM is so incredibly fun and over the top, everyone is always running around in a costume or handing out candy. You can’t just have one Halloween costume you have to have two or […]

  • Nerdy Upheavel

    apeteani on Alyssa's Bloggety-blog-blog
    Today in my Roman Civilization class we were preparing for a test. We organized ourselves into groups and discussed essay topics. I was with two other people and we were by far the smallest group out of all the essays. I spoke to another girl and she was also a Classics major! I always get […]

  • If I'm not watching Spongebob when I'm 40 there's obviously something wrong in my life

    apeteani on Alyssa's Bloggety-blog-blog
    Sometimes while in college I get this notion in my head that I’m all grown up and I’m learning about complex things that can potentially alter the path of our civilization as we know it. Facts and theories that completely change my perception of how I view myself and the world constantly swirl around in […]

  • Falling into Fall

    apeteani on Alyssa's Bloggety-blog-blog
    Finally the leaves are starting to change colors and all I can think about is hiking and apple picking. It’s getting to be sweater weather and that’s always awesome too. My mind seems to be focused more on the beauty of the season and fun with friends lately :p Already we’re halfway through the semester […]

  • The Horror, The Horror!

    apeteani on Alyssa's Bloggety-blog-blog
    Well I must say I had a very magical Tuesday. This was the day of my exam for my Asian Traditions class, and man was it a doozy. I had heard that the exam was going to be hard, I studied a little, and went to bed very late the night before, awesome preparation. At […]

  • Domination

    apeteani on Alyssa's Bloggety-blog-blog
    So far I’ve had two exams in which I’ve totally DOMINATED! Everyone says that Junior year is supposed to be your hardest year, so far I haven’t had too big of a problem. Maybe these are some of the reasons it might be difficult….. 1) Living off campus for the first time. This may be hard in […]

  • First Exam is Looming

    apeteani on Alyssa's Bloggety-blog-blog
    My Art History exam is already coming up this Friday. :/ I’m a little apprehensive about it but most of the stuff we have learned about is art pieces and buildings in antiquity. I’ve seen all of these  already in most of my Classical civilization classes. I find it so amazing how many parallels there […]

  • Living With People You Love Can Be a Problem.......For School Work That Is

    apeteani on Alyssa's Bloggety-blog-blog
    I happen to live in an apartment with my best friends. It is amazing every day to be around them, so much so that my school work tends to take a back seat sometimes. I read for a little while but then the laughter of my roommates beckons me away from my studies. Everyone  has […]

  • What are you going to do with that major?

    apeteani on Alyssa's Bloggety-blog-blog
    Every time I hear this question I want to scream. I’m a Classics major and A) people don’t usually know what it even is and B) they have no idea what you can do with one. So to all those Philosophy, English and Religion majors, I feel your pain. Unless you’re going into a highly […]
