well, the last 48 hours have been something! in mostly good ways...
somehow woke up for class, which was discussion. Mr. Know-It-All dominated, of course, because those silly scientists are just so stupid! (hehe, while i was in an environment where agreement would not be combated, i know better than to so lightly suggest such things and very much opted to keep my mouth shut the whole time ;p) though i really wanted to play devil's advocate, Mr. KIA is one of those sorts who has a pat answer for everything the lowest common denominator (which includes me in the realm of contemporary issues) might bring up, all with that "how can you not agree with me?" grin on his face... oh, i'm so sick of that face...
so i politely asked the cute underage girl who loves Burton, uses recycled paper, and reads comic books what she thought of discussion, knowing that she's not Christian. hehe, a tactful response it was, at which she suggested that we team up for the "argue both sides of an issue" part of our course, saying "i think i feel more comfortable with you than just about anyone else in the class." (note to self: you're pathetic and she's all kinds of too young!) apart from my dorkiness, i was quite pleased that someone new to the overbearing "we're so much better than you" environment feels comfortable with me.
called up and volunteered for a Gothic Historical Tour! sounds like a lot of fun, and i'll be a docent, walking people around this town i've grown a bit enamoured with, telling them ghost stories and explaining the macabre history of what life was like just 3 generations ago. :)
worked, which was just that. Latin... (i aced my last test!!) Hebrew.
then, it was hours of being independantly responsible! to celebrate the initial success of the bocce club, we threw an impromptu barbeque, which i prepared, maintained, mingled, taught, played, cleaned up from 3:30 to 7ish. which left just enough time to study for a midterm in Greek and the FINAL in P.E., which if i fail again means i don't graduate until i take again!!!
due to the INTENSE NECESSITY that i NOT oversleep for both, i slept on friends' couch. one played a couple eps of Harvey Birdman as i tried to fall asleep, and i'm growing to really like that show! woke up with 20 minutes to spare (an on-campus advantage over off-campus remoteness), got to class, and i believe i did very well. returned to friends' dorm, wrote reaction paper for the P.E. project, took the exam, ate, printed off my script for the Gothic Tour and a walkthrough for Pokemon (as i was supposed to beat it before tomorrow but haven't gotten the chance!), went to science lab, confirmed things with the cool chick.
met up with the friend i only get to see 45 minutes per week for a couple drinks, read script, came home with intents to sleep (sorry i bailed on you giollachriost!). friend called reminding me i was supposed to tutor him in Hebrew. went back to campus for that, and we opted to study over coffee, cleared some things up for him, and we talked about other very important things. back now at quarter to one or so.
gotta wake up at 7am again, class at 8:30, work at 10, class at noon, drive friend to pick up his car between classes, class at 2, work at 3, get towards home for Pokemon tournament after work ends at 4:30, train/prepare (um, maybe beat my game?). then, FINALLY, relax, enjoy, tourney, etc.
what an absolutely FULL couple of days!!
