So I'm fairly technology-challenged and I'm sure someone here has to know this. I was thinking about getting one of those unlocked cell phones you can buy on Amazon. It says you can just stick in the SIM card you already have and start using it, but I remember the last time I got a new phone it wouldn't work, and it turned out the reason why was I had the wrong kind of card. (This might have had something to do with the fact that the "new" phone was really cheap and crappy and presumably a much
Well, I didn't flunk out of law school. I just got my last grade today, even though my exams ended Dec. 22. I've been such a stress case (well okay, even more than usual) for an entire month. My grades seem horrible to me, but there's this dumbass curve and I think the average for a class isn't allowed to be above like 2.6, so I suppose it's all sort of relative. At any rate, I'm just glad I'm still here.
Also, it's 12 degrees here. Twelve. Two days ago I had my window open.
I'd sort of given up on writing here, but no one seems to be awake for me to talk to. I went to this party a girl in my classes was throwing, she pretty much invited everyone in our section and I guess 20-25 people showed up. It was fun, finally having a conversation with people I've sort of know for 6 months but never really talked to. I actually know people's first names now (the professors call us Mr. and Ms. whatever, so everyone knows each others last name.) Let me say no, I am not drunk, I
Well, three exams down and a take-home one to go. I'm fairly sure I completely blew the first one but the other two I feel okay about. I got really lucky and found another girl who has a flight leaving about an hour before mine, so she's driving me to the airport tomorrow morning. I was going to have to walk about a mile with my bags at 4 am and get on this shuttle that a taxi company runs, so I'm definitely pleased to be picked up by car at 5 instead. I hate flying, hate the whole ordeal with t
It's 20 degrees right now, and I have the heat on but I'm still freezing because the top of the window in my bedroom is open about an inch. I close it, it slides right back down. And it was extremely windy last night, so thanks to the open window my door was slamming in its frame all night long. I haven't gotten a decent night's sleep in days. I haven't been able to fall asleep at night, and then there's this building being constructed practically right outside my window, and they start with the
I'm done with the evil paper. Imagine me dancing around like a fool. All it took was a nice long string of cursing and throwing a book across the room. Now I just have one class tomorrow morning (and yeah, it's the worst one and the professor has taken to calling on me practically every day), but then I'm free for the rest of the week. And my mom mailed me a pumpkin roll today..whoo hoo. Although no one up here has the faintest idea what that is, which just puzzles me because my mom makes lik
Yeah, it's 10 am and I should be in class. I actually went to school this morning, and got the crap I needed to do over the weekend out of my locker, and got on a bus and came home. I am so completely exhausted and burned out, and this weekend I have to re-write this freaking legal memo. I cant think of a strong enough word for that memo. Scourge, plague, bane of my existance? Anyway, I decided I deserved a Friday, damnit. Especially considering I'm not going to have a Thanksgiving break, becaus
Well I'm sure no one is surprised to hear that I'm swearing off drinking on another Sunday morning. Although it had been several weeks. It was someone's birthday, so we did this whole thing with a limo and a VIP room at some really nice club. Honestly, I was sort of uncomfortable, because I hate clubs, I don't do dancing, and I'm used to hanging out in complete dives. But we had a host named Rico (hehe) who showed us to our little private area, and then we had a waitress who kept coming back and
Okay, so I just have two things to say. One, I'm completely, hopelessly addicted to facebook. I always made fun of all those people who were on there, and on MySpace and stuff, and even though I spend way too much time online I said I'd never be one of them. Yeah, well. I did find a bunch of people I went to high school with, which is sort of cool and sort of pointless, cause it's not like we've kept in touch or I can think of much to say to them besides "wow, it's been a long time." Two, Star T
Actually left the house tonight for the first time all weekend. I was starting to walk to Walgreens to go get more cold medicine (I have been sick for over a week!) and ran into one of the guys I usually hang out with on weekends, and 4 of us ended up going to a movie. We saw The Departed, which apart from the fact that it felt really long because we got there late and had to sit in the second row and look straight up at the screen for 2 1/2 hours, was really good. I still can't take Mark Wahlbe
OK, I'm bored (watching Dirty Dancing for the 100th time, if that says anything) so you guys get to listen to me ramble.
Against my better judgment, I just signed up for Netflix. I know I'm always on about how I don't have any free time, but I've actually started doing a lot of my studying in the middle of the day (one day a week I have a 4 hour gap between classes, one day I have 3 hours, and one day I don't have class till 2 but I go in at 10 and sit in the library and work, because that'
Another Friday gone but no hangover. Yippee. Not that there wasn't drinking. We actually got started around 5 pm, but mostly stayed away from anything other than beer, so no one really ended up in ridiculously bad shape. Like 9 of us had decided to have a little cookout, and of course it rained all day, but that didn't stop us. There was a balcony overhead blocking most of the rain, so it worked okay. If anyone's wondering, I had a veggie burger and they're really good done over charcoal. We als
I feel like total crap today, and I can't even exactly remember if it was worth it.
There were like 8 of us that went to this bar, which was unbelievably crowded and loud. There was this band playing and I don't think I heard a thing anyone said to me all night. I just sort of started pretending I knew what was going on and shaking my head. It's hard to tell what I might've agreed to.
It's been a loooong time since I had that much to drink, and now I remember why I'm always swearing I'
(I am, Joe made it so. )
Right, so just a little update for anyone who cares. I'm still totally swamped but I think I'm calming down a bit. And sorry Michael, but I haven't met a gay guy (that I know of) yet. I'm still sort of getting used to this whole being able to look straight out over the horizon thing. I can't tell you how weird it is to not have mountains. But all the water is awesome, and it's been like 10 degrees cooler here than in WV, and we all know how happy that makes me.
So I've been doing too much sitting around thinking and not enough working today, and we all know that's not good on several levels. I think I've sort of figured out the biggest part of this general "the world sucks" attitude I've had going for a while, although that doesn't necessarily mean I know what to do about it. The biggest thing, I guess, is being alone, although it's not about the particular person at all, more that I really only had one person who completely understood me, and now I do
Well, it's only Wednesday and I feel like I've been here for about a month. This is not due to me becoming used to the place quickly, but to the unbelievable, massive, ridiculous amounts of work I've had to do. I don't think I did as much homework in 4 years of college as I've done this week. Just hours and hours a day, every day, and even then I feel unprepared most of the time. I think I've studied for something like 6 or 7 hours today. I mean, don't get me wrong, I'm not thinking about quitti
So. It's been a while, but it wasn't voluntary, trust me! I haven't had internet, exactly, since I've been here (Sunday). I've been waiting all week for someone to come set me up. Then I found this cable jack under my bed and yay! Except I've got the monitor on a chair, the mouse on my laundry hamper, and the keyboard on my lap, because the cable thing was on the other side of the room from the desk. So between the monitor being at a weird angle and the fact that I'm mildy tipsy, sorry if my spe
Okay, so first of all, thanks to everyone who wished me happy birthday. And thanks again for the card, Joe. You have terrible handwriting.
I went out with my friend today and had an insane time. We went to Charleston, which for those of you who never learned your geography is the state capital. It's the biggest city in the state,which isn't saying much as it has a population of like 50,000, and it's pretty much where you have to go if you wanna make a day of it. So anyway, we went to the m
Okay, I'm gonna talk about something serious for once. My mom has a relative who is only expected to live a few more days. I don't really know her, and I'm not even sure how we're related, but the whole situation is really bothering me for a reason that I think makes for a good discussion. The relative has pretty much given up at this point, and is refusing to eat or take medication, because she's ready to get to the "other side" and see her husband. Now, I don't believe in an other side, and I
Okay, so I just got an email from the housing people, FINALLY, and...I think my roommate is a guy! I haven't actually spoken to the person yet, I'm actually writing an email right now, but it's definitely a guy's name. I mean, sure, we'll have different bedrooms, but I was NOT expecting that. I debated about whether it was totally weird to just ask "Are you a guy?" but I finally decided to. I mean, it'd be nice to know.
And I can't move in until the 13th! How stupid is that? That's a Sunday
Holy crap, it's been so long since I've really paid attention here at GA that there's all these new people I don't know...*cowers in the corner.* I've just been too busy travelling and trying to get ready to move AGAIN. And if you'll all allow me a moment to complain, OMG is it a lot of trouble going to that school! I've had to get two vaccinations, still need a third that I can't get for a few months, have to send copies of all these medical records, and then there's the chicken pox saga. I hav
*ahem* This entry is for Joe, my bestest friend ever, even if he is an asshead, since I'm going to be gone for his birthday, the exact date of which I'm not allowed to say.
So, happy early birthday, Joe!
This might be the longest I've ever gone without an entry. I've been having computer problems like crazy, and also not a whole lot of time to spend online. Plus there's the whole dialup/tying up the phone line thing. I had my mom talked into DSL and then it turned out it's not available here. But today we both got new computers (whoo hoo!) and everything is actually working, and going a lot faster even with the dialup.
Of course there's not a whole lot going on here to talk about. We're goi
I'm feeling a bit murderous at the moment. I know this was probably a really bad idea, but I knew that a certain evil bastard had this blog, so I went there to read it. And imagine my shock when he's talking about me like I was the biggest bitch ever. I think he said something like "this space is probably going to get more interesting without the old hammer and sickle around" and "god it feels good to be single." I mean...ouch. He's talking about how he's building a collection of liquor to have
I've been having a bit of internet withdrawal here. I hate dialup! I tried to convince my mom she needed to get cable internet, but she's too cheap. Anyway, I haven't done anything more interesting than watch TV since I've been here, unless you count the minor crisis we had Saturday night. I woke up at about 2:30 in the morning and heard a strange noise coming from downstairs, so I went to investigate and discovered that the kitchen was flooded. A pipe broke or something under the sink, and m
