I can't count...
...credits, that is. As in how many credits I have and will have when I graduate. I keep getting 129, but I only need 124. And if I don't need an extra class I won't take 18 credits, but I don't know how that can be possible. So I need someone else to count for me. Oh, and I learned something new today - as an English major I have to have a concentration. Goodness, I wish someone had mentioned this to me maybe 2 years ago, oh I don't know, maybe someone like my advisor! Luckily for me the credits required were mostly in classes I just wanted to take, so I just took them naturally. But I can imagine Mom's groan when I tell her that I have to take 2 art classes next semester for my literature concentration. Good thing I looked over all this stuff before I registered, or I'd be really screwed. Oh Dr. Snyder, why didn't you tell me these things?
Otherwise I've had a pretty decent weekend. Thurs was Senior night at Nappy's so I went with Krystle and Shannon. It was actually a lot of fun, and I got to see a bunch of people trashed that I don't normally get to see. Dr. Mertens was there, but I guess he left early. That reminded me that in May we're going to be considered adults for once, and going out for a beer with a professor won't be considered scandalous. Strange, yes, but not scandalous. I know I have a tendency to blame gradeschool for a lot of attitudes I have now, but it's true. I didn't think of priests as real people until college. Subconsciously I never thought a teacher would swear or have any sense of humor til halfway through highschool. Going to highschool was interesting because we were no longer coralled into lines going to the same class with the same people, silent and in single file. Freshman year of college was so perplexing because professors just acted like we were so capable, so able and free to think. It makes me hopeful that someday I'll find a job where my boss doesn't think of me as a dumb kid and treat me like I don't know anything. Let's cross our fingers!
I need a haircut terribly. It just seems to be all over the place lately. I feel much better than I did in the last post, but you should have seen the amount of crap I ate on Friday night! Oreos, pizza, beer. But it was a lot of fun. Jessica and I went to Giant Eagle for makeup and such and then we ran to a sub shop. We sat and watched What Not to Wear for awhile and then Kim and Shannon came over. We all went to Kim's room and hung out for a bit. After everyone left Shannon and I went to Gerry to sit with Jenn while she was on duty. It seemed like forever since I'd been there, and it's amazing how foreign a place can feel even though you lived there for 2 years of college. We ordered pizza and giggled much. Around 1am it was time to head back. When I got home I hung out with Jessica and her friend Frank and then I hopped into bed.
Saturday was more relaxed and I tried to get some reading done. It was the infamous Halloween Dance in Alcuin so I got to see a bunch of people run around in crazy costumes. Ryan went to see John Stewart live in Columbus, and he said it was pretty good. I smile as I remember how this time last year I had just started dating Ryan, and its been such a wonderful year of memories. I can't wait to see him. Sloe has a long weekend coming up and she had mentioned a road trip to Ohio, which would be wonderful. If we go I hope I'll get to use the camera since Dad won't be seeing the Pet Shop Boys this time.
There has been an abundance of birds floating around campus for the past 2 days. Jessica described it like the movie Birds, and I had to agree when I glanced out the dorm window to see the grass covered in pecking birds. This morning I watched around 10 fly up to the roof above my window as I lay in bed. I wonder what was so awesome that they decided to get friends to come up with them.
Jessica says I have a crush on Julie the aerobics instructor, but I just think she's really awesome. She's funny and so sweet, I want to be as fun to be around as she when I'm older. I also want to be fit! Hooray for feeling good. Until next time.
The adventure continues...
