Has anybody ever had to drive a van full of students (or peers/friends) at night in a torrential downpour under zero-visibility conditions? If you have not then I hope you never have to. It is horrible, trust me! I just experienced this two days ago. At first, there was just rain. I was a few cars behind the professor's van of students and life was okay--even though the driving was a bit half-arsed Balkans-ish. Then, it started raining harder and harder and harder, until the professor's van faded into oblivion and the only thing visible were the front/back lights of vehicles. The rain was blowing horizontally by then and my entire van was awake and anxious. We needed to pull over, but there was no safe place to pull over--and the professor? Where the heck did he go? Was his van still okay? How far were they? What happened to being a team?

KaraVAN was very concerned, yet calm. I knew that I'd put us into more danger by pulling over, so instead I flipped on the hazards and traveled through absolute darkness at the slowest speed limit allowed on such a roadway. Soon after the hazards came on, we saw ambulances flying from both traveling directions as well as across the overhead bridge. My back-up drivers asked if I wanted to switch with them, but I refused fearing that #1 we'd hydroplane if we pulled over into the right shoulder, which was starting to collect pools of water #2 I'd be more freaked letting somebody take over when I already had plan safety in action. This drive was the most hellish driving experience I have ever been through and I am just glad that KaraVAN made it safely to a hotel along with the professor's van. The next morning we continued our drive home and saw shattered signs and other forms of heavy wind damage. I am so freaking glad that we left the campsite when we did and even more glad that the professor made the decision to stop at a hotel (even though we probably should have stopped hours earlier for safety reasons). That campsite is probably flooded along with all of the pit toilets. My hands are blistered from gripping onto the steering wheel because I was fighting the wind and sheets of water from pushing/dragging out of the middle lane. They don't pay me enough to do all of these crazy things lol.

All in all, the trip was pretty enjoyable. I got to be a lazy assistant, sleeping on boulders in the sun while everybody else had to do work! //slapped Okay, I actually did do things like collect random agates and calcite completely unrelated (and in my opinion cooler than what the students were looking at), slam my hip on KaraVAN's door on the first day (ouch!), drive, relay van messages, make sure that the prof wasn't ditching the less fit people in his spurs of rock-loving enthusiasm, keep order at the hotel, and make sure that KaraVAN was locked. The sights were really pretty too and we got to visit an abandoned mine and a cave as well as several nice parks full of sexy boulders.

Since we left toward home earlier, I was able to watch part of my graduating class' awards ceremony. Everybody assumed that I wasn't going to be there, so apparently my mineralogy professor had one of the girls pretend to be me by holding up a Popsicle stick with my face on it up to her face as he showed off the awards that I had won. Hahahah I love that man! He is so entertaining! Luckily, one of the professors recorded the whole ceremony so I will get to see it soon. C: Since I showed up late, they had me go up for real at the end and receive my awards. My mineralogy professor made the whole award set based on the mineral okenite since I am insanely obsessed with it. He got me "cool mineral-drawing pencils that okenite cannot be drawn with because there is no white pencil" (aka crayola twistables with a homemade label over them), a "mineral collecting bucket for collecting okenite" (aka beach pail that says "mineral collecting bucket" on it in marker), an okenite-making kit in a pyrite box (aka cotton balls, a brick of clay, and a gold-glitter-colored Chinese takeout box), a box of sketchy okenite (seriously, I could not tell if he was BSing with me because it looks like somebody took cotton and glued it to a rock, but upon closer inspection, it is actually real crystals...It might be a wannabe okenite mineral. I don't dare ask lol!), and then finally a "Spare real okenite sample" which was really awesome okenite on some pretty pink prehnite (I think Prehnite hahah). I also got a serious award and that was a scholarship nomination. :iconsuperw00tplz: I'm going to use that for my field camp course this summer! I love my department so much! They are all so entertaining and I am going to miss being around them every day after I move.


Anyway, I am still on hiatus until the 26th, but I would like to remind everybody that I will be taking requests. OC requests are fine and so are any animal-related requests. I'd prefer not to draw anthro and definitely will not draw overly violent/gory/sexual drawings. In other words, keep it PG-13 if not PG.
