Can I go home now?

I’m sitting in my Geography class right now (I’ve been here since 4 o’clock) and all I can think of is that if we, as a class, can manage to keep the professor talking for another hour and fifteen minutes then we can all go home.

Except that I agreed to meet with my group after class to discuss this mapping project that we need to complete for 20% of our grade. What did I do that for?

Other things that make me happy

So it's the fourth week of classes and so far I've done a pretty good job of focusing on school. Especially considering all the shit that went down during the first week. I'll fill you in briefly, otherwise we'll be here all day.

A couple weeks ago Richard's pancreas decided to go, "Grrrrr! I am an angry pancreas!" and essentially beat the shit out of his insides every time he tried to eat or drink anything. Even water. The paramedics came and took Richard to the hospital, but because Richard is basically the worst patient ever, he went AMA and came home thinking he was all better. This was the moment when his pancreas decided to go, "HAHA! Fooled you, sucka!" and the paramedics were called yet again. Fast forward to a different hospital with Richard actually behaving himself this time and his pancreas finally got a chance to rest for a few days and mellow the fuck out.

One thing that all that stress has made me realize is that we really ought to take a few minutes out of every day to think about the things that make us happy. And I mean really happy. Not just, oh isn't that nice happy, but big goofy grin happy. Things like this new blog I've discovered that makes me laugh so hard I actually start crying.

Or this picture of my best friend with a chicken on her head!

Or this epic music video by Ok Go.

Those are my big goofy grins for today. If you don't have any of your own yet, that's ok, you can share mine. Hopefully one of these has made you smile like an idiot :)

This is why I love John Stewart

I gotta admit, though, Stephen Colbert's pretty awesome too. John, I wish I could be there with you, man.

Oh, and here's Stephen's follow up. Cause you know there had to be one, right?

Oh joy.

Our washing machine is broken. We were hoping that maybe it had just slipped its belt or something, but nope. The repairman confirmed for us this morning that our washer that we've had for 7-10 years now is unquestionably, officially, busted. So guess who's dragging her books and several pounds of laundry to the landromat this weekend? I don't even need to ask, do I?

Actually it's not that bad. Like I said before, it's often easier for me to study when I'm out of the house. So hopefully I can get all my reading done while the laundry's going and then come home and type up my homework when it's all done.

There need to be laundromats made especially for students. With desk lamps and comfortable chairs and access to the internet. If something like that doesn't exist already, it needs to be made. Like, now. I demand a fancy laundromat catering to homeless college students! Make it happen, people!

I could have slept in, but noooooo.

Who's got two thumbs and didn't check her email this morning? This gal!

Ok, so that joke doesn't work as well over the internet, but the result is still the same. I got to my 10:00 am class this morning, on time no less, only to find that the class had been cancelled. Usually I check my school email in the mornings in the event that something like this should happen, but I had my computer packed away to take to school with me today and didn't check my email.

Not that it would have made a difference because, as it turns out, there was no email saying that the class was cancelled. Now that's just rude.

My next class doesn't start until four, which gives me six hours between now and then to decide if I want to go home and come back in the afternoon. Then again, I do tend to focus better at school. So I think I'll just stay here and finish my homework for the week.

Meanwhile Timmy is still at home tucked away all warm and cozy in bed. Lucky bastard.
