    “On the Spot: Chelsea Barroero, Elementary education sophomore”

    So I noticed that you just spilled your coffee all over the floor. What happened and how do you feel now?

    Well, my friend here is kind of an idiot and she knocked over a Starbucks drink. It got on my laptop and inside of my CD player of my laptop. I am kind of freaked out right now. My “”Sex and the City”” DVD is OK, though.

    Oh, no!

    Yeah, I am feeling a bit upset about it.

    Is it kind of like an omen for how the rest of your week is going to turn out?

    Definitely. Especially for my friend, probably because she is the klutz that dropped it. So she is for sure going to have a really terrible week. Just shows that it’s Monday morning, it can’t get much better from here.

    How do you feel about the holiday “”ugly sweater”” parties?

    I love them. They are my favorite thing. I live for Christmas. I live for ugly sweater parties. I live for this time of year, basically.

    How many ugly sweaters do you own?

    About five.

    When are you going to bust your favorite one out?

    Well, for instance, I am having a party on Monday to make some ornaments and I invited friends to wear ugly sweaters if they please. I definitely am. I’m going to buy one of those battery-powered lights to string through my sweater to make it really ugly and really awesome.

    You are all about Christmas, like a little elf.

    Yes, I am. I’ve applied for the position as one of Santa’s elves, but he won’t let me have it because I am six feet tall so, that’s a bummer.

    Definitely over the elf limit. How do you feel about the combination of chicken and waffles?

    You know, I actually like chicken and waffles. My friend owns May’s Counter so that is pretty cool.

    So, today begins the final countdown here at the UA now that mini-break is over.

    I am kind of freaked out about finals because I have a scholarship to keep up with, and right now, my grades are just about borderline.

    Under par?

    Yeah, more like right at par and if I let any of them drop then I am going to be really screwed next semester.

    Well at least you have your ugly sweaters to keep you warm.

    Exactly, all I need.
