Wait... A... Second!

When I left for my math class (over an hour ago) it was 28º. It is now 27º. How can that happen? Can that even happen?!

I Just Want Life to be Simple

WARNING: This is a rant by me similar to the October rant of Eliminating Waste.

You have been warned.

Today, I got a message on Purdue's voicemail. I haven't used Purdue's voicemail forever (hello, I have a cell phone) so I don't remember how anything works except how to log in since I do it whenever I see our little message light blinking.

Well, I log in, and it tells me to press 7 to play my messages. Um... why else would I call my voicemail?! Why can't they just play my messages for me. And after the message is done playing, it takes forever for the lady to come on and tell me what buttons to press (like to delete, keep as new, etc.). It just seems like it could be a little easier.

Rocky Road

I got Edy's Rocky Road Ice Cream today from the Boiler Junction tonight because I have been in the mood for ice cream for a few days now. Well, this Rocky Road has marshmallows in it. I have never had Rocky Road with marshmallows in it. It was a new and exciting experience.

Get Me Away

I don't know if it's because it's the end of the week and it's been a busy week or other stuff, but I really just want to go to sleep now and not wake up until Monday morning. This way, I can't be annoyed or anything at all. That would be wonderful.

Overall, you scored as follows:

75% scored higher (more nerdy), and

You Get to Help Me Get an A in Psychology!

Here's the deal. I got a C on my last Psychology exam. Now, with the two exams, I have a B in the class. I have an A in attendance (10% of grade) though so it's now up to a high B. The final exam is not cumulative and is worth the same as all the other exams (30%). I can get my last exam grade up from a C to a B if I do some extra credit. So, here's how it works and here is where you come in:

The experiment is to write a one-page paper on a person on television/in a movie with a psychological disorder. Now, all the rest is up to me and there's no use telling you what I have to do since nobody knows the difference between an Axis I and Axis II disorder, let alone has even heard those terms. I need you to tell me what movies/tv shows you watch where you think one of the characters has a psychological disorder (something you would go to a shrink for).

Any help is so greatly appreciated! I need to write ten of these so any input is greatly appreciated!

The Weekend

This weekend, I am going with Ferrini and her family (as well as Mike, Eric, and Amanda) to DePauw University to go to the Monon Bell Classic Saturday afternoon. Then, Sunday we're in Indy just hanging out downtown. Downtown Indy is quite possibly one of my favorite downtowns I have ever been to. This weekend is going to be awesome!

Fun Friday

Here's the drill. iPod. Random. First 15 songs. Could be embarrassing.

  1. California - Atherton
  2. Thank You - Simple Plan
  3. HELP! - I am Sam Soundtrack (Howie Day)
  4. Across the Universe - I am Sam Soundtrack (Rufus Wainright)
  5. Low - Coldplay
  6. My Doorbell - The White Stripes
  7. Take Me Out - Franz Ferdinand
  8. Disappearing World - David Gray
  9. Maybe This Christmas - Ron Sexsmith
  10. Assessment - The Beta Band
  11. Golden Slumbers - I am Sam Soundtrack (Ben Folds)
  12. Come On Back to Me - Third Day
  13. Move your Feet - Junior Senior
  14. Love of the Loveless - The Eels
  15. A Lifetime - Better than Ezra

Does this give a little insight into my life? I don't think 15 is quite enough, but, then again, I only have 226 songs.


Today, I was talking to my mom on the phone and, all of a sudden, she starts yelling at the cat. He was chewing some of my dad's papers and, while he's always liked paper, he has been chewing an awful lot lately. My mom thinks he has a vitamin deficiency. I think she might be overexaggerating but who knows.

Gotta Love Psych 120!

Today, at the end of my psychology class, our professor said to get out a half-sheet of paper and we were going to do an experiment. She said, "If you could do one thing, with absolute, complete, 100% assurance you would never get caught or that nobody would ever know you did anything, what would you do?" So, we write our things down and pass them to the middle where the T.A.s collect them. There were a lot of expectable ones like "Rob a bank." but then things got a little more interesting.

"Fire my Computer Science 290 professor." (lots of applauding)

"Kill Paris Hilton. What a slut." (lots of laughter)

"Have sex with the T.A." (laughter and not knowing if it was to the guy or girl... and who wrote it)

Then, Dr. Donnelley picks one up and looks at it for a few seconds. "I'm not going to read that one." Well, of course, the entire class starts yelling to read it. She thinks about it for a second and then says, "Well, I won't read it but maybe he can read it." She hands the piece of paper to a guy in the first row and puts the microphone in his face. After a few seconds, he replies, "I'm not reading that."

By this time, the entire class is screaming for someone to read it. So I, sitting in the second row, tell Dr. Donnelley that I will read it. So, she hands me the paper and puts the mic in my face. I read the paper to myself first and here's what I read:

"After speaking to my boss, I would grab my dick and
slap her in the face and say fuck you get back to work."

Well, I'm a little confused now but the entire class is waiting to hear it so I start talking into the microphone:

"After speaking to my boss, I would grab my... male part and
slap her in the face and say f you get back to work."

Everybody starts laughing hysterically. I was a little embarrassed. It was only in front of my Psychology class though. All 489 of them.

Seriously, Can You Pull Over a Bike?!

Today, walking to class, I heard a screeching sound and turned around to see if there was going to be an accident. Well, all I saw was a police car in the left turning lane and a bike on the left side of it, both just sitting there. I look back maybe 20 seconds later and see the cop to the side of the road with his lights on and the bike in front of him. He then proceeds out of his car and talks to the guy on his bike.

Now, everybody is thinking "Of course cops can pull over bikers! They have to follow the same rules as cars on the roads, we learned that in Drivers Ed." Well, apparently you have never seen this sight. It is rather funny to see a cop car with flashing lights pulling over a bicycle. I should have gotten a picture on my phone but I didn't think of it.

Math Exam

Guess who just aced the math exam? I can't remember either. Oh wait, it was ME! I got 14/15 (93%). The one problem I missed, I missed because I didn't plug the answers in and find that one didn't work. I even went through that with my teacher on Wednesday before I took the exam on one of the practice exams. I totally could have had 100% if I had remembered to just check! Oh well, I am still totally stoked with a 93!!!

YAY for Cool Teachers!

Thanksgiving Break, for us, starts Wednesday, November 23, so, our last day of classes is the 22nd. Well, my General Studies teacher had cancelled our class on the 22nd long ago but my Psychology class (4:30-5:45) was still a go... until today. Dr. Donnelly cancelled class on the 22nd so I officially don't have any classes on the 22nd. Meaning... I can go home anytime after 3:30 on Monday, the 21st and get an entire extra day of break. I am excited about that and you should be too.
