I is happy. Friday the 13th ended up being the best day of my entire life. Better than President's Scholar Award day. That day, I attended a Spanish Department Award ceremony, which I thought would be relatively short and simple..as in I would get a certificate of my greatness in spanish..that is all. But it was SO much more. My friend Lauren, fellow Chemistry Presidents Scholar was there as well, so I think she's following along in my 'footsteps' if I ever had any. ;) *checks* *yup* I gots some. :D (they're cute too)
Anywho, I really wanted my parents to attend, but since I didn't know what a big deal it was, I didn't really feel too sad at their absence. So I check my name on the program sheet, and I'm like 7th down, for the Maria Moliner Award. I have no clue what it is ofcourse. I saw some of my favorite professors in the WORLD though (Sr. Pastrana-Perez, Sr. Felkel, Sr. Millar, Sra. Montilla), so I spoke to them. (lots of hugs, and a few kisses from Dr. Felkel! *haha*)It was GREAT!!!! And Dr. Pastrana explained to me what the award meant, mainly that Maria Moliner had written the world's BEST illustrated Spanish Dictionary, in a time when the male gender dominated such fields. So this award, in his eyes, was representative of me entering medicine, a field predominated by males. (which I wonder if it's true anymore *contemplates*) But that got my spirits up, and I had a seat, after which the award ceremony began.
There were about nine seniors in the category I was in, each with their own award. eg. my friend Mary got the Premio Antonio de Nebrija. *yay Mary!!* :D ..for her 'intellectual wit' (she's a friggin' mathematical genius). But what surprised me the most was that before handing out the award, they described the award, and the origins of the award's name, but then they went into PRAISING..literally, PRAISING EACH AND EVERY STUDENT!!! Every award was preceded by at least three quotes about the student from different professors. So obviously, when it came to me, I was already trembling. Dr. Pastrana, Dr. Millar, Dr. Felkel, and Dr. Montilla had SO MANY things to say, they couldn't STOP!!! OMG. I was barely able to stand when I went up to get the award, and my eyes started watering and my throat hurt. O dear. It was the best, most honorable experience of my LIFE. :)
*whew* So, I'm happy. It's moments like these when I feel appreciated when I least exptected it. I love such moments. Most of all, I love that the people I most respect bestowed upon me such an unexpected honor. It's not the award that counts (which by the way was the LaRousse Illustrated, that Maria Moliner wrote) it was all the hugs, and kisses, and the exchange of nervous spanish jutting out of my being. *haha* It was priceless.
And then..THEN..my family and I planned to have dinner at Olive Garden that night, and my mom wore a Sari!!!! She looked PHENO-MEN-AL!!! HOLY CRAYOLA! My dad and I wouldn't stop swooning over her! *haha* It was an AWESOME dinner, full of love, and family. Just family.
So those of ye who believe Friday the 13th is bad..I kid you not, there's no such thing. Every day could be spent joyously. It's how you decide to appreciate it that counts. So make the most of it eh?!

*kills self for not 'tilding' the n*
So my spanish class RULES! Here's the shortest latin american story EVER written:
"El dinosaurio -by Augusto Monterroso
Cuando desperto, el dinosaurio todavia estaba alli."
translation: "When I woke up, the dinosaur was still there."
O_O *stares*...for some reason, I LOVE how a sentence that small could mean SO much!
*haha* *compliments self-nerdiness*
Here's some good advise for us women though:
"Cuando un hombre que esta vivo te hace llorar, hay que dejarlo. Solo se llora por los amantes muertos." -Clara Obligado
translation: "When a man who is alive makes you cry, you have to leave him. Cry only over dead lovers."
..that's some wicke' awesome advise. :D
*enough feminism* ;)

Dr. E: "If you want to call someone ugly, you can say 'Your cell adhesion molecules SUCK!!!'"
Dear me, life is busy, but good. Last night we had like a frikkin' blizzard, when the day-before it was 70 degrees outside and I wore slippers. SLIPPERS!!! I wore a skirt, and now..I'm huddled up in 127,239,235,328 layers of clothing!!!! Why o why does the weather have to make us used to high temperatures, then TAKE IT ALL AWAY?! *raises arms to heavens*
O, and the reason I've been so incredulously busy, is that I have a poster presentation for the KCMS Research Day on Wednesday next week, and want to complete writing my rough draft for the honors thesis by tomorrow (which 99.5% may not happen *hehe*, but to be optimistic 0.5% MAY happen), and then I have to finish like 50 million pchem lab reports. *stares @ last four words*
:D I'm still happy that I'm alive. And I love those of you who I haven't seen since Pluto was demoted..you should know, you are missed. *MUA*
