Chinese Chucks and Sweet Tea

 

Tuesdays are a day that I wake up at 8am and don’t get done with my day until about 10:00 at night…if I’m lucky So basically, from the time I wake up Tuesday morning I want the day to be over. October 14th, 2008 was a different story though. Tuesday October 14th can only be described in one word. Epic. 

Every Tuesday afternoon from 2:30-3:45 I have a radio practicum class. This class is pretty much awesome. Niki Bryan and Andrew Brown teach it, how could it not be a party of learning? So around 2:20 Abbey Jo (fellow WT blogger) and I were in the HELC desperately trying to print something out for class and of course we couldn’t find what we needed. After thinking long and hard about what to do (maybe 30 seconds at the most) we decided radio practicum was cancelled that day.

Since it was 2:30 and we had an hour and a half before I had to be back to work we did the only logical thing possible. Road trip to Amarillo. When we left we had one thing on the agenda. Buy new Chuck Taylors. Little did we know that our trip would become much much more than a simple purchase of shoes. Our first stop at Kohl’s proved useless so we took our journey to well…Journey’s…As we walked in the first thing I noticed was the overwhelming emptiness of the store, considering how Abbey Jo and I were the only people in there, it fit. I then noticed the two workers standing in the back looking awkwardly at us. I have come to the conclusion that if you work at Journey’s you are required to take a “how to make your customers feel awkward training class”. Soon, the shock of instant awkwardness left the store and Abbey Jo and I were able to find a pair of brown and a pair of black chucks. With our bank accounts lighter but our hearts happier we left the store ready to take on the world. Instead, we decided to get mall Chinese food. Where else do you get free samples of pretty much everything? Defiantly not the corn dog stand. With our day getting better every second we left the mall barely  being able to contain our excitement for out next stop. Every trip to Amarillo must contain a stop at Starbucks and that is final. Of course there are exceptions to everything and the one exception to this rule is, if you don’t stop at starbucks then you must stop at WaterStill. We followed the exception and got some amazing sweet tea sugar filled water with fruit flavoring that resembles the color of tea. 

By that time, it was around 3:40 and we had to end our epic journey. After almost dying on the way back to Canyon, we arrived to WT just in time for me to go to work and Abbey Jo to be a lazy bum and go take a nap or something like that. 

Also, if you haven’t checked your email lately, WT is getting a new email system. They are switching to the Windows Live Education email. Basically, its better in every way compared to the email account we have now, the go.wtam.edu one. You have a lot more space, you can send larger attachments, its integrated with all of the Microsoft Live services, and a lot of other cool features. If you go to www.wtamu.edu/live you can see a video talking about it.  You should probably set up your new account now because on March 1st the old go.wtamu.edu email address won’t work anymore. Oh, and chances are you will have to change your facebook email address too.
