Start Again

So it's my last year in college. I guess I'll start this up again? I started it the first time for senior year in high school, I might as well start it up again for senior year in college.

What can I say, I like symmetry.

Someone figured out how to do a Cthulhu emoticon. Pass it on!

Note-taking Never Ends

 I got behind on my reading for Texas Government, so that's been eating up my time all week. That should give you an indication of exactly how far behind I've gotten. Ummm, try about eight chapters in two different textbooks. I've knocked out five of them, but I still have three left to do this week. 

Next week is test week for me. I have an etiquette dinner to go to on Tuesday, which should be "fun." Also, tomorrow I have a job interview! I really don't want to work, y'all. But this way I can at least tell my parents that I'm looking.

Have you ever noticed how spending seems to come in waves? Like, I was doing well and on target for budget and everything up until last Saturday, when I had to go out and buy Business Professional stuff for this dinner. And then there was food, and of course the Halloween candy is being sold so I had to buy that. And there were a bunch of other errands to. So that was about a metric crapload of cash blown there. Also, this week it was cold for awhile so I ordered a hoody and another shirt online, which, even though it was on sale, was still quite a bit of cash.

Bleurgh. Maybe I just won't go grocery shopping this weekend, and that'll put me back on track? Meh.

Actually, forget that. This weekend, I'm baking oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, so if you know a good recipe post it for me!

I hate Apple So. Much.

You know what? I was in a rather excellent mood when I got back to my dorm today. I had just watched Across the Universe and was humming Beatles songs quite contently. And then I decided that I wanted the soundtrack.

So I look it up on Amazon and I notice that it doesn't have  "All You Need Is Love," which is ridiculous because that's the entire point of the movie. But then I notice that there is a deluxe edition available exclusively through Best Buy and iTunes.

Aha! I think. It's got 31 songs, all of them that you could possibly ask for. So I figure I'm just going to buy it at Best Buy.

I check BestBuy.com. According to them, this magnificent bounty does not exist.

Oh God. I'm going to have to go to iTunes.

I install iTunes on my computer, so now I've got this sucking pustule of a parasite on my hard drive. Then I purchase the soundtrack. (Fairly) easy enough so far. But then I try to burn myself a nice little CD of my purchase. And I find out that's it's impossible to do that and make the CD playable by anything but freaking iTunes.

HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAATE.

The long and short of it is, at present I've got a very special sort of program that's probably going to virus up my laptop hardcore converting iTunes !#&%^#$ m4u's or whatever the eff it is into mp3s so that I can make a CD and perhaps even someday if my wildest dreams come true put MY OWN PROPERTY onto my mp3 player. 

It freaking pisses me off! I bought these songs, they are now my property, so what right does iTunes have to keep me from playing them on any application BUT freaking iTunes? I do not want Apple's program on my harddrive any longer, thank you, so could I please just take my pretty songs and leave? Mas, non.

Not the sort of thing you say to a heavily-armed Christian

I wore my hair down today, but it's humid outside so it's gone all frizzy.

Also, I've been asked five times so far to accept the healing power of Jesus Christ into my life.

Coincidence? I think not!

Guilt-tripping Your Way to a Better College Experience

When my parents got home yesterday they discovered a little present that I had left on my mom's desk under a sticky-note saying "Welcome to Aggieland!" in a disarmingly cheerful blue. That present was an article titled "10 Reasons to Avoid Planned Parenthood Planned Parenthood is the Evilest Evil that was ever Evil, plus they're totally building a death star to kill us all" that had come in my Aggie Primer newspaper.

Today, my dad took me out and bought me an HDTV for my dorm room.

Coincidence? You be the judge!

In other news, yesterday I also went out and took my revenge upon all the crate myrtle trees that line our driveway, because I'm tired of them gunking up my pretty little car every time I want to back out of the garage. However, the tree cutters were hung precariously atop a Very Sharp Saw, and I sliced up my middle finger pretty bad, which is making typing really difficult. The keys on a laptop keyboard are almost too small for human fingers already, but add in a large bandaid at the tip of the finger that does "i" and "k" (not to mention ",") and you start to have some real issues.

Sunday night we went shopping for dorm stuff (see how completely nonlinear my blogging is, here? the author chose that style in order to illustrate the randomness of human memory and stream of conciousness thinking) and now my room is slowly being taken over. There is a load of cardboard boxes full of random junk by my door, and access to my bookshelf is beginning to be shut off by a laundry hamper full of cleaning supplies and a desk lamp. The living room has two different nightstands (I may select one or search around for others) and three large boxes (a laser printer, a microwave, and the aforementioned television) stacked in it, my laptop is slowly taking over the top of my dresser with all its peripheral wires that I need to pack up, and the clutter has spread to the top of my desk, which has an alarm clock and a cd/dvd pouch that I need to fill up (thanks for that tip, Caroline!) on it.

All of this stuff isn't going to fit in my car, is it? Damn. And I haven't even packed up my clothes yet.

Oooh, and I also picked up a box set of "250 Years of Mozart" while I was at WalMart getting my TV. I'm really excited about it, because it should serve me well for the 3 hour trip to College Station. Last time we went, all the CDs in my car had been listened to by the time we got there.

The boredom continues D:

I just actively hunted down my father's old Calculus textbook and did twenty derivatives and ten inequalities of my own free will, thus proving beyond a shadow of a doubt that I am in need of serious help. Is that how you spell serious? I don't even know anymore.

By the way, despite allegations that Bear Grylls cheats and stays in hotels, I maintain that it is all the real deal, dammit! It's all real. Shut up! Don't take away these delusions, too!

Mi padre says the explosions in Dallas were the high point of his dull day. Apparently cannisters were flying through the air most of the afternoon, which does sound highly exciting. He had a really excellent view, too, as his office windows overlook city hall and Reunion Arena, just across the highway from the gas processing plant.

Bleh. D:

I am bored. Bored bored bored. Bored to sobs, in fact.

I can't even get into the new Harry Potter book. I've gotten through chapter four and it's just not grabbing me. And I can't think of anything else I want to read. Even fanfic has failed me, y'all.

I'm actually yearning for some schoolwork to do. I know. I know!

God, even Blackadder seems uninteresting.

Please send help immediately care of "Save Maddy from the Doldrums" ASAP!

ETA: I just balanced my checkbook and started a financial database for college on my laptop. It was the most fun I've had all day, and I'm kind of sad that I'm finished now because it was really interesting to do. I need serious help.

I don't know if y'all are involved in the Harry Potter fandom, but there is shit going down all over the place, guys. The Potterdammerung has come earlier than any ofus could have predicted.

If you read spoilers, you might want to go check out nearly any website that has Deathly Hallows spoilers. Actually, it doesn't even matter if you're in fandom or not. This shit is epic, y'all. EPIC.
