*edit* changing/adding to this blog.... so if you read it before you're just going to have to read it again to get all the news. so sorry. **
This is sort of a random blog at a random time, but I wanted to make a few eensy teensy changes in the links on the side, and you have to publish something in order for them to show up. The nosepilot link was marked down as temporarily broken, until I found the right link again. I found it. For cat's sake, visit it now if you haven't before. It is, quite simply, the definitive random yet beautiful Internet Flash animation.
I realized that the mailing link on the side was still my Yahoo one. If that's the address you have, I'm still checking it daily, so don't stress overmuch about sending me mail there. But I am trying to get the bulk of my mail over to my Michigan address, that being firstname.lastname@example.org. The one and only reason for this is that the Michigan mailbox gives me a lot more space than the Yahoo one does. Yahoo allots me 4 MB. Michigan gives me 50 MB. Yeah, you see my reasoning.
Today is Corey's birthday! Happy freaking birthday, Corey! Maybe I could send him his card if he would give me his address... *insert irate growls here*
Not much doing today... did some shopping. I got a dictionary and thesaurus, and a notebook to start me off (until my teachers tell me what I'm actually going to need). I'll probably go back to the bookstore and get my chemistry book later. Yeah, I know I should've gotten it while I was already there, but I didn't know what section I was in. Now I know.
I also got some groceries... I didn't feel like lunching out today, and the dining hall in my dorm still isn't open, so I bought bread and peanut butter and jelly and made myself a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. I'm wicked resourceful, me. I also bought more bottled water because I'm going through it at a ridiculous rate... I dunno, soda started to disagree with me, so I've been sticking to water. I feel like Leslie.
A couple of the girls on my hall went home for the weekend. I talked to Seth again today, and his roommate also went home for the weekend. Now there's a luxury I haven't got. Lucky buggers.
Things are still pretty 'eh' here, people seem to be waiting for classes to start. I mean, those are the people you're going to become friends with, especially in the art school, since the classes are relatively small. But things are fairly quiet until then. There's a free movie night on the field behind my dorm tonight or tomorrow... I might check it out, if nothing else is going on and if I am so inclined.
There are several other things about which I could rant, but I won't post them here, seeing as this is public domain and all. Wouldn't want to wound anyone's delicate sensibilities.
If I don't have your college address yet, give it to me, you evil people. Sheesh. My email's on the side, I check it daily, and you can even send it to Yahoo if you so desire. Also be sure to send me your new email addresses, if you have new emails. You can give me your phone number if you wish, but I make no guarantees as to whether or not I'll use it. At least you know that if you give me your addresses I'll send you stuff.
Once again, this is mostly a blog of boringness and complaints. I am sorry about this. I also keep telling myself to stop blogging every day, but then I always find time and think to myself, "Hey! I could be blogging right now!" And then I do.
To make up for the boringness of blog, have a lemur.
aawwww. ain't he precious? he's a red ruffed lemur, in case you were curious
I went out to get my chemistry book just now. Yich, the thing is massive. And expensive. But we already knew it was going to be expensive. *despondent sigh*
Anywho, my dorm is one of what are called the 'Hill dorms'. I think the majority of kids who live in the dorms end up on the Hill... it's a dorm row, if you will. Couzens, Alice Lloyd, Stockwell (all girls), Mary Markley, and my own very dear Mosher Jordan.
There are, of course, other dorms on campus... West, East, and South Quad are all on Central Campus, Bursley, Baits I, and Baits II are on North Campus, and that's only the larger dorms... there are tons of smaller dorms, like Fletcher, Oxford Housing, Betsy Barbour, and so on. Still, I'm pretty certain the highest percentage of freshman and sophomores live on the Hill.
The point being that it is not surprising to find out that someone you know is living on the Hill.
I say this because I, of course, am in Mosher Jordan (and I do intend to get pictures up at some point). And I heard tell (although it may not be accurate telling) that Sasha is in Stockwell. Today, as I was walking over the bridge which connects the Hill dorms to Central Campus, who should I run into but Swampscott's own Dean.
Turns out he lives in Markley, another one of the Hill dorms. Swampscott is representin' out here, let me tell you. We're just inundating the Hill, what with our three people and all.
Anyways, it was awfully nice to see a face from home. Yeah yeah yeah, I know. If it's awfully nice now to see a face from home, I'm going to have one hell of a time making it to December break. That being the first time I go home.
Got a package from home today, which made me happy. Hooray for mail! Everyone should send me mail. Email is good and glorious, but I think that everyone should send me snail mail, because it is so glorious to get it. Seeing how much I enjoy receiving it, I will be sure to send mail to everyone who's addresses I have.
If you want my address, just send me a query at email@example.com. I won't post it herein, that's a security no-no.
I think I'll go eat dinner soon. Hmm. Yeah. Now there's an idea.
