Ugh. Work today. At least I only have four more work days until spring break!!! I cannot wait to go to Savannah, it is going to be so amazing. I miss James so much.
Everything is busy these days. I need to sit down and make some plans for what I am doing so I stop getting sidetracked and out of place.
Im growing clovers in my bedroom. I hope they are four-leaved clovers because I could use some luck outside of my academic life. Which reminds me, I need a new hobby!!

|01:17 pm - I'm back....maybe....|
So, I think I may try to get back on livejournal. I don't really know anyone who does it anymore but that come with both positives and negatives so I don't care. I'm sort of afraid that if my livejournal dies I might not remember anything that was going on in my head during college soooo...there's that.
Right now I'm in the computer lab on campus, I really hate these fucking long breaks I have on Tuesday and Thursday but at least I get to see Kathleen during them. I feel like I never see anyone anymore and worry that my social circle is going to shrink. It's not that I'm unhappy with what I have been doing, I just don't want to lose everything else. I should probably make more of an effort to keep in touch with people but I doubt I will. Just as in my schoolwork, I am lazy in the social aspect of my life to the point that it almost becomes painful.
Also, I don't have class tomorrow which is amazing. I hope the weather sucks again tomorrow so I can just cuddle with Croissant and not feel guilty about it.
In an unrelated note, I wish I could journey into a video-game world for just one day. It would be awesome, I would play with Yoshi and fire fireballs and jump on walls. Plus, if I were in the world of Paper Mario I could fold myself into an airplane and fly or fold myself into a boat and journey on the ocean. That would definitely be fun.

|06:09 pm - fall|
When I was driving home from Rachel's new apartment across from Hamburg I saw THE most amazing sunset. It was jaw-dropping beautiful. I was on Winchester Road and surrounded by trashy restaurants and strip clubs and the like but it let me forget everything around me. I think it's nice how that can happen sometimes. It was like driving in a dream, or something. I absolutely love the way bare trees silhouettes look against the sky, it's probably my favorite thing about fall.
On that note, I am trying to appreciate things around me more. However, I think there is a very fine line between stopping to enjoy the world surrounding you and getting so lost in the small things that you forget what is really going on. I am lost enough in my life, after all, I need to remember to look at the big picture once in a while.

|04:22 pm - People I Hate on Campus, Part 1: The Idyllic Couple|
Yeah, I've seen you. Walking slowly, almost in the middle of the path, feeling it necessary to bridge the gap between yourselves by holding hands and staring into each other's eyes, occassionaly nuzzling and kissing maybe tossing in an ass grab every now and then.
I can never get around you, idyllic couple. You are too close to the edge of the path for me to walk on one side without walking in the grass but too close to the center for me to pass on the other side without running headlong into the other people who are trying to avoid vomiting as they stare at you. I mean, if you want to make out on campus find a damn bench, or a tree, or, for christ's sake, an abandoned stairwell. It's not that hard to walk to class at a normal speed with your tongue not jammed down someone else's throat. In fact, it's a lot easier to walk that way. You will avoid bushes and innocent bystanders that way. Also, I will not feel the insatiable urge to put on gloves and throw rocks at your head.
It's not that I have something against your naive romantacism. I think that sometimes it's kind of cute. (Note: sometimes, not often) But really, I hate campus. I don't want to spend any extra time there and I certainly don't want to be reminded that while I am trying to get through the hell I call class and avoiding the people I know and don't like on campus, there are happy people out there. It's just too much for me to handle.
Please idyllic couple, this is all I ask: save it for the dorms, the basements and the drunken parties, if you can. And if the strain proves to be too much for your young love, just take it off the path.

I need a new computer!!!!
I can't handle not being able to really enjoy new music since I can't put it on my ipod.
School = bleh but this weekend is RENT which I know will be amazing and we don't have class on Friday and I don't work until Sunday so I am happy.
More later, I have to go take a test and then go turn in a bunch of essays.

Good weekend...but now I think my cartilage piercing is infected, also I am having tooth problems and my mouth is all swolleny. But I don't care too much as my sister is finally coming home today. I'm driving to Louisville and am going to the airport with her boyfriend to get her. I can't wait! I know this is going to be a damn long class day though.
Also...I think I would definitely have sex with all the members of Of Montreal, even the girl...though she would be a little lower on the list. More about that later though, when I have more time.
Also, more about my parents visiting last weekend...haha.

|06:35 pm - Recounting my ranting|
I had a sociology test today...I think I either did okay or terrible. We shall see. I am hoping for okay.
I studided for hours yesterday and it put me in a really bad mood because a. I find much of what I learn in sociology to be depressing and b. my mind wanders when I study and because studying itself makes me angry I tend to go on crazy rants about nothing.
Anyways, yesterday I got really pissed when I was thinking about the fact that attendance is required in our college classes. It makes sense to me that attendance is required up through high school but now we are PAYING for class. If we want to waste our money, we should be allowed to! If I buy a gallon of milk, I am not legally obligated to drink the whole thing, I can pour it out if I want. If I purchase an alpaca known for its soft, luxurious fleece, I do not have to shear it come springtime. We are a wasteful country and if I choose to waste my money by not attending my classes I should have a right to do so.
My roommate pointed out that teachers prepare lessons for us and its disrespectful not to go, but the fact is, they are going to get paid regardless. True, it is more fulfilling to feel like you are actually doing something at your job but I don't think mandatory attendence rules necessarily imply that students will be in class everyday, excited about learning something new. I think the best way to make sure that a class is full of eager young minds is to make it harder to get into college in the first place, that way we know the people who make it this far in their education are serious about learning. If our admission requirements are low we are going to be full of a bunch of slackers who don't care about school and end up failing or doing poorly anyways.
The thing is, I would go to class most of the time anyways but I hate being told what to do (problems with authority...it runs in the family) and I hate the fact that a couple of insignificant absences can ruin your grade in a given subject regardless of whether you understand the material or not.
Okay...enough about that. Check out the trailer for Jesus Camp on youtube. It scares me
Current Mood: crazy

Ugh...school is too much. Actually it's not, I just miss those days when I had nothing to do at all. And I could party whenever I wanted to. This semester has actually been kind of amazing, I am having a great time. Sure, I have no direction in life, but things are going well. On a kind of related note, there is a Funky Llama brand of wine which I am currently enamored with. How could I not be?
I'm bored with myself today. I want to do something drastically astouding or at least new and exciting. I shall think about that. Before anything, I must have deep contemplation on what will be good enough. I mean, Miami Ink makes me want to get a tattoo but that probably is not best idea...
I miss my sister. It's weird.

It has been forever since I was on livejournal since I have not had the internet in ages. I kept thinking of things I wanted to write but now I have forgotten most of them.
I guess the highlights of my recent life have been extreme drunkeness, the invention of the word dramatical, the start of school, and the bailing out of my husband from jail. Yeah. Fuck the POlice.
I really liked the rain today until I had to sit down in class in my soaking wet clothes. Being outside in it was nice though, I hate hot weather and it felt really good. I think one of the most amazing feelings is standing outside in the rain while listening to an ipod. If the volume is just right you can drown out most of the outside noise but still hear the rain falling on the umbrella. It is kind of perfect except for the whole getting wet thing.
Oh also I saw this little sorority girl who had gotten cute for class (reject) and was wearing a little white flirty skirt but had forgotten her umbrella and you could see straight through her skirt. Haha, loser. She probably liked the free advertising for her ass though. Ugh, I don't understand that life.
