i'm nearing the end or the beginning, whichever finds me

so i finished my application essay (yay me!) and then reread it and realized that it sounded a bit like a thesaurus threw up all over the paper. you know the people who use big words for the sake of using big words? yeah, i think i might have turned into one of them. my greatest fear has been realized. only, when i read it out loud instead of in my head, it didn't sound that bad. it still sounded a little bad, but i've written so many application essays it feels like they're all just a bouquet of lies and cliches at this point so i didn't really expect to fall in love with it. i'm planning on rereading it tomorrow morning and if it doesn't make me want to die, i'll submit it. if it does, well, i guess i'm back to ground zero.

i also - finally - got the three people to write my recommendation letters. i got my adviser to do the last one because some of my professors are obnoxious, and he was very happy to. i guess he doesn't get asked to write many recommendation letters.

i have also been wondering, where do you wear your watch? a couple of years ago my cousin and i went watch shopping with my sister and noticed she wore her watch right at the bottom of her wrist (like under the bone/on the bone/right at the edge of her palm kind of thing), and we thought it was weird because we both wore it above the bone. while telling my mom that my sister was weird, i noticed that she was also an under-the-bone person. my husband is, too. when i went to get a watch resized the dude working there asked where i wore my watch, but his was under the bone. and then i had the shocking realization that maybe my cousin and i are the weird ones. maybe most people wear their watches lower down, and i just never noticed until now. so i'm asking you, for the sake of my sanity, where do you wear your watch?

oh, and at the risk of sounding like a complete and utter geek, i love the class i'm taking this semester. i think it's one of the best classes i've ever had. i have a paper due tuesday, and i'm actually excited to write it. i mean, i'm sure i'll still leave it for the last minute, but i'm excited nonetheless.

    new song i love..have been loving. i just found out its by Maroon 5.. moves like jagger. lets see if anisah posts this in a few days. haha or maybe she already has. :D

    today was a lot of fun.. :)

    and now i am soo unsure where i wear my watch. :S

    this comment was cut in pieces because Zazu just started throwing up in his sleep. I'm not sure its a good idea to eat the food since it pretty much sat in the heat until 7 pm. :/

  2. lol no she hasn't. i don't think she will, though. she's not very maroon 5-y anymore.

    whenever you figure out where you wear your watch let me know.

    i ate the food, or half of it, and it was fine.

  3. i wear my watch under my bone. and i used to wear it on my right arm too but then i got scratches on my bone area so i moved to the left. i've been on the left ever since.

  4. huh. maybe i am the weird one then. i used to wear it on my right, too, but also switched to the left. i can't remember why, but i'm hoping it's not just because everyone told me that i was supposed to.
