Had my first test today in psychology. It went pretty well, I think. I knew everything that was on the test, like there wasn't anything that I was like "Oh shit what it is that? I don't remember that at all," but I'm a little concerned about the essay question, since it's 30 out of 100 total points and half of it is designing your own original way to research a personality trait and I don't think I did a good job answering that. But I totally freak out about the smallest things and they turn out all right, so I'm trying to be optimistic. I think it went well.

I also got my first E-Post thing for my Technologies of Gender class back and graded and got a 95, which made me really happy because I did it really quickly and thought I missed the entire point of the article, but apparently I didn't. Also I was concerned since our grades are basically these posts and one student presentation. She's mentioned a midterm paper and maybe a final paper? But it's nowhere in our syllabus of part of our grade or when they're due, so I have no idea about that. I really wish she were more organized. It sucks since all my other classes are so awesome, so it just emphasizes how much worse this class is.

I watched the premiere of Gossip Girl, and after about 10 minutes I decided I wouldn't be watching any more episodes, but I watched till the end and I really liked Dan and Jenny a lot (and Serena some. But I really hate Chuck and dislike Nate. Blair I'm unsure of right now) so I think I'll watch for a little longer. It's fun to have a show where I don't really have to think and can just enjoy the prettiness and shallowness of the characters.

I have pictures up here of my trip. I'm not sure if I'm going to do a huge post describing every day, mostly because I don't think I remember everything we did in the earlier part of the week.

I auditioned today for the Wind Ensemble here and the director told me there's definitely a spot for me, he's just not sure if I'm going to play tenor, bass clarinet, or clarinet. I really hope I get to play tenor. But in any case, I'm excited. The idea of being in band again makes this place feel a little more normal, and hopefully through it I can meet new people and such. Before my audition I met this one girl who tried out on bari sax and we talked for a few minutes. She seems really nice, so I hope she made it too.

I'm kind of flipping back and forth between being homesick and being really happy. I think it's worse at night/in the morning for whatever reason. But I'm still really looking forward to classes. I think that'll improve things a lot. Not that it's entirely awful now. It's just not as good as I'd hoped it would be. But it's only been 4 days. If things completely suck in 3 months, then... well I don't know what. But it'll suck.

Well I'm all moved into my dorm and have been here for a day. I'm mostly enjoying it. My roommate is pretty awesome so far, and I've met a good amount of people through stupid orientation games and actually talked to a few. I miss home a little now, but it hasn't entirely sunk in yet that I'm here for months and not just for the weekend. I met my adviser/professor of my first year course and he seems very nice and like he'll be a good lecturer. And most of the people in my first year class are pretty cool. Oh, and I have my schedule for sure now!

PHYS 113 Modern Astronomy MWF 12:00-1:00
PSYC 100 Introduction to Psychology MWF 9:40-10:40
PSYC 100 Psych Lab T 1:00-2:30
WGSS 194 Technologies for Representing Gender MWF 10:50-11:50
GEOL 155 History/Evolution of the Earth TR 9:00-11:30

I'm pretty happy with it. I mean, it's exactly what I've expected it would be for months, so no surprises. Thursdays are going to be awesome with only the one class in the morning. And I'm happy that my MWF are in a block so I don't just have like... 40 minutes to do basically nothing.

Anyways, I'm still planning on doing a huge post with pictures of my trip here but they've been piling on the activities, so I don't know when it'll be. It's 2:50 now and I have this thing at 3:30-5:00 which is like... it's called Faces of Mac Community and it's students talking about the multicultural community and such. I might not go to that, actually. Then at 5:00ish I'm having dinner with my parents, which is probably the last time I'll see them until October since they're leaving tomorrow early in the morning.

There's a Casino Night tonight (sadly lacking Jim Halpert, though) that I probably won't go to because I suck at those sorts of games. Plus, my roommate's going to a Counting Crows concert with her cousin so I'll have the room to myself, which will be kind of nice (even though I do really like her, I'm really not used to sharing a room).

So today is my last full day at home. We've already sent the birds to the vet's for boarding (it's so quiet around here now!). We're leaving tomorrow around 9 AM (although knowing us, it'll be more like 11). The itinerary:

Tuesday: St. George, Utah
Wednesday: Boulder, Utah
Thursday: Salt Lake City, Utah
Friday: Jackson Hole, Wyoming
Saturday: Cody, Wyoming
Sunday: Spearfish, South Dakota
Monday: Sioux Falls, South Dakota
Tuesday: St. Paul, Minnesota

Not exactly sure about everything we're doing, other than visiting Yosemite and Mount Rushmore. Orientation and move-in starts on the 31st, which is the Friday after we arrive in St. Paul. I'm not sure how much access to the internet I'll have before the 31st, if any, and from the 31st to the 4th is orientation and then the 5th classes start, so yeah. I'm not sure how much I'll be on-line during that time, if at all. At the latest, I should be back by the 8th, but I'll probably be back before then. But anyways, I'm really excited for this trip and college and all that. It should be a lot of fun.

I should probably start packing all my stuff. I'll see you all when I get back!

gah. I really wish I had found out about the whole mass exodus from LJ thing sooner, since I just renewed my paid account a few weeks ago. Although I probably would have anyways, because I love having room for this many icons and I don't like the free account layouts much, and anyways there isn't really anywhere for me to go yet. I don't like IJ or GJ very much (although I guess I'd go if everyone else left LJ and just keep this account for personal stuff). sigh.

Anyways, had my TB test and Meningitis shot Monday, both of which hurt like hell, but I actually didn't cry this time, somehow. And I actually had a reaction from the TB test this time, but it turned out it was just a bruise and I don't have TB (which, yeah. I was really concerned that I did, what with the previous negative test and the fact that I haven't been in contact with anyone who has TB and I have no symptoms and such). But anyways, I'm glad that's over with.

Um, what else. Jackie leaves (left?) today for Cornell. Next is Emma on Saturday, and then me on Tuesday. I've been looking forward to going to college for months, but now that it's actually coming, it feels sudden. In any case, I've been in contact with my roommate and she seems nice (and doesn't seem like a huge partier from her Facebook, which I was a little afraid of, but of course I can't be certain about that until I'm living with her). And I'm looking forward to the drive up a lot.

I really need to go through all my papers/junk and figure out what I want to take with me. I should also practice for the band audition I'll have the first week of school (auditioning on tenor, but I only have a clarinet so I'm practicing with that, so it feels kind of pointless to me. But I should still probably practice, if only for the fact that I haven't picked up an instrument since mid-June). So of course, instead of doing these things I should be doing, I'm organizing my iTunes library and reading fic. I win at not procrastinating and doing things I should be, obviously.

jkhasf so I'm terrified of needles, as I've mentioned before. I got my TB test in July (even though you can get a chest x-ray for it too, it's more expensive and my mom wouldn't pay for it) and it sucked and hurt and such but whatever, I was done with it. But today I got an e-mail from Health Services saying the reaction (WHICH WAS NOTHING THERE WAS NO REACTION AT ALL THE WHOLE WEEKEND) was read over the 72 hour limit so I have to get it done again. And it's not like it's my fault, the freaking nurse told me when to come in to get it checked, but it was like 86 hours after I got the test so they're refusing to accept it. And it's written into Minnesota state law that it has to be read before the 72 hours so there's absolutely no way getting around this. My doctor is trying to write a letter explaining that they told me to come in and it was absolutely no reaction, it wasn't like it was really close to the size of what would be considered positive, there was nothing. I DON'T FREAKING HAVE TB. GAH. I'm really pissed off at my doctor because they should know when to get it read. Maybe I can convince my mom to pay extra and just get an x-ray, because I really, really don't want to have to get it done again. I already did it once, I shouldn't have to get it done again.

sigh. This has been a bad day.

So I'm feeling a little better about getting my essentially last choice first year course since I found the book required for the class on for $3.00 (well it was a little more plus shipping and handling, but still very cheap). But other people are now starting to see their choices for other classes pop up on their account at the school website and mine aren't and I'm afraid I'm going to get my last choice for all my classes, which really sucks. As long as I get the Intro to Psych class I want, I'll be happy, but if I don't get it... blah. Oh well, there's not anything I can do to change it now. All I can do is hope for the best.

My mom's considering getting a Macbook too now because her computer is so outdated and slow and awful and she's a writer so it'd be nice to be able to take her computer around the house or outside or whatever and work on her short stories. So I went with her this week to check them out at the Apple store and then she took me shopping and I got a pair of Rainbows, two pairs of flats (which I've wanted for awhile because I think they'd go well with some of my skirts and I don't really have any other shoes that go with them that aren't super dressy), and a tote bag for school. Yay new things!

I've watched a bunch of pilots and I don't really feel like typing up longer reviews, so I'll just say I loved Pushing Daisies (although I'm really afraid that a lot of people are going to hate it and it'll be canceled as quickly as Wonderfalls), I loved Chuck (way more than I expected, and it is kind of a Jake 2.0 rip-off, but at least it's a good rip-off, so I'll definitely be watching it), I liked Reaper (although I'm kind of unsure, so I don't know how long I'll last with it. I'm really surprised about how much good buzz it's getting, because I didn't hate it, but I didn't think it was brilliant or amazing either), I... am kind of unsure about Bionic Woman (I want to like it, I really do, but it was pretty boring for most of it until the end, and a lot of the dialogue was really stilted and yeah, I don't know. I may give it a chance), and I liked Aliens in America a lot more than I expected (but it's on at the same time as too many other things I want to watch, so I don't see there being a good chance of me continuing to watch it). I guess that's it.

I also broke down and watched the first two episodes of season 2 of Dexter. I promised myself I wouldn't, but then I just got a huge urge to watch the show again and I decided that I'll have enough to do in the fall without having more TV to watch, so I might as well watch them now when I have time and am pretty bored and really want to. I really loved the episodes and now I want more, which was the reason why I didn't want to watch them in the first place, but oh well.
brokenrecord: (Default)
Ok, so now for stuff not related to Harry Potter. (Ok, mostly.)

I got my Macalester e-mail and found out my first year course. Unfortunately I got my third choice FYC, The History and Evolution of the Earth. It's kind of more my fourth choice just because my fourth was Intro to Psych and only reason I put it fourth was because I wanted the other section of it more that wasn't a FYC. I don't know, the class sounds interesting, and it's a residential course like I wanted, but... it's geology. And the professor is my advisor and I don't really have a great interest in the field. I really, really wanted that film analysis class. sigh. And the history class I put for second would be fine too, because history is actually something I would major in. Oh well. I hope the rest of my schedule is more what I wanted. If I didn't get into that intro to psych class I'm going to be really upset.

On a happier note, I got my Macbook on Thursday! I love it so far. It's been hardest to adjust to the smaller text sizes, but I think I'm ok with it now. And it always sucks to find out that programs I took for granted before only work with Windows and not Mac. I obviously had heard that before, but I didn't realize how many it was really true of. I bought Paintshop Pro for $70ish just 6 months ago, and it doesn't work on Macs! gah. So my choices are to either buy Photoshop for $700 or buy Parallels (and I guess I would have to buy Windows XP as well?) for $80. Yeah, pretty obvious which route I'm going to go. Besides, Parallels will be useful for a lot more than using PSP, so I think it'll be worth it.

The one HP-related thing, I did finish all 6 books by Friday night. It was a good thing I reread the sixth book, because I forgot everything that happened in it, except I guess the stuff that I was spoiled for before I read it, which would be the Snape stuff and all the relationship stuff. But I forgot about Scrimgeour and Slughorn and even the Horcruxes. Seriously. And some stuff like that I would read and be like "Oh, yeah, I remember that," but there was plenty of stuff I would read and wouldn't remember at all. It was kind of cool, like reading it for the first time again.

I saw that the first two episodes of Dexter season 2 have leaked online, and I'm trying to resist. I guess it's easier for me than those who watched it when it aired since I only finished season 1 a few weeks ago. I probably wouldn't be resisting if I had been waiting for months for the new season. But yeah, I think I'll leave it until it airs. And Dexter reminds me of the Emmy nominations, in which I'm slightly happy about some of them (Jenna Fischer! I wasn't expecting her to get nominated, and I'm so happy she did. She really deserves it), but that's mostly overshadowed by the fact that Friday Night Lights and Dexter got no major nominations. I was sure that if they both wouldn't be nominated, at least one would be for something. I mean, I watch House and Heroes (I can't comment on other shows nominated instead like Boston Legal and Grey's Anatomy because I don't watch them), and I enjoy them, but no way are either of them better than FNL or Dexter in just about any respect. Hugh Laurie, maybe, but the show as a whole, not so much. And I love Masi Oka and Hiro to bits, but I don't really feel he deserves his nom. Oh well. It's not like I expected to be thrilled with all the nominations.

Um, what else? I've watched a couple of leaked pilots so far (Reaper, Chuck, and Pushing Daisies), but I think I'll comment on them in a separate post later. Or I'll get lazy and forget. Haven't really been doing much today. It's like I have no idea what to do now that I'm done with Harry Potter. I'll have to figure something else out.

I got Orientation information in the mail Wednesday! So excited. :D And now all I can think about during school is planning my schedule and finding all these classes and such and man, I'm so tired of school. I don't have much longer left, though. Three weeks from today is my last senior final, and then I have a few days before graduation but those don't really count. I'm looking forward to these last weeks being over. All my teachers are piling on projects and tests and labs and such and wtf APs are over! We're supposed to be lounging about watching movies! sigh.

I decided to go to Warped Tour this summer. It was kind of random and sudden and such because Annie had been talking about going and I was just like "...huh. I really don't feel like going" but then at this jazz band thing I did last weekend a band was playing beforehand and it just reminded me of all the concerts I've been too and how long it's been since I went to a concert (Oct. 31 of my junior year! Over 1 1/2 years!) and I just got the urge to so I bought a ticket and now I'm going. I'm really looking forward to it. Should be awesome.

This week has been pretty fun. Tuesday was Senior Ditch Day Activity Day so we went to Knotts which actually ended up being a lot more fun than I thought it would be. Wednesday we just had a senior meeting in the morning which was the most pointless thing ever. This guy from came to talk to us but it was all very obvious and boring stuff and no one was paying attention and he talked for like an hour. And by then everyone was bored as hell and just wanted to leave so they ignored all the actually important info they gave us about commencement and such. They should've just handed us a packet with the info. The rest was pointless.

Yeah, anyways. I have nothing really to do now, so I think I'm going to stare at my course catalogue for a few more hours. I am still planning on doing a "Favorite Gilmore Girls Moments" post (and I'm thinking I'll do one for Veronica Mars, too. I think I'm going to start a tradition for myself where I always make favorite moments picspams for when shows I like end. Unless they're only like 4 episodes like the first season of Wonderfalls (I'M STILL MAD AT YOU, FOX, FOR THAT!) in which case... that wouldn't really work) but... I'm so excited about college and all these courses that I can't stop thinking about them. It's so fun to plan out possible schedules. Except when you think you have one perfectly planned and then it turns out you didn't account for an extra lab-type class that's right during a class you really wanted to take. (Next semester I'm totally taking the class on dinosaurs, damnit!)

So over the past few days I've been thinking, and I'm not going to send a letter to Vassar about how much I love the school and I would definitely go there if they took me off the waitlist (they encourage you to do that if it's your #1 school and you're on the waitlist because they want to take people off the waitlist who really want to go there over everywhere else) because it's not really true anymore. I'm really in love with Macalester. I've been looking into it a lot and it's just really awesome. And the benefits of Vassar aren't enough to outweigh what I think I would be losing by not going to Macalester. I'm staying on the waitlist because I already checked the box in pen, but I probably won't go if I'm taken off (although it's highly, highly unlikely I'll get off if I just sit and do nothing to tell them how much I love them), and I'm thinking I'm going to take myself off the waitlist by like the end of May. But yeah, anyways. It was kind of a big decision and I was struggling with it for a few days but now I'm really happy and so excited to go to Macalester. :D

These next few weeks are going to be kind of hell-ish for me, so I probably won't be around much. This week I have a combination of rehearsals for the musical (the Wind Ensemble is playing this medley of Miss Saigon, Les Miserables, and Grease before the musical [which isn't actually a musical, it's a musical revue of the musicals the school has put on in the past 10 years]) which are on Monday, Wednesday, and then the shows Thursday-Saturday, and I have a bunch of extra jazz band stuff, including the OC Fair Jazz Festival Friday and playing for the middle school parents' night on Wednesday. Plus I have a ridiculous amount of stuff due in English this week, most of which I haven't started (I need to do 10 lit journals by Friday. ugh). Then in two weeks is APs, so it's probably a good idea to start studying for those. At least for the French one, because if I get at least a 3, I can fulfill the language requirement at Macalester.

Ever since spring break ended, I've really felt like school should be over. I don't feel like doing any work and it just feels like everything should be done. sigh. At least it's two weeks of school, then two weeks of APs, and then after that only like 3 weeks until graduation. But it still seems like it's taking forever.

Happy Easter to those who celebrate it! My mom gave me Urinetown the book as an Easter present (although it's more that she saw it and knew I'd like it and Easter is just kind of an excuse to give me something) which is pretty kickass.

Anyways, yay for Spring Break! I was really starting to need it. I plan on relaxing and doing nothing until Thursday, and then from Thursday to Sunday I'm going to San Francisco on a band trip, and I'm really looking forward to that.

I watched Doctor Who last night and it was really awesome. Doctor Who 3.02: The Shakespeare Code )

I think I forgot to mention this, but I got waitlisted at Amherst. I'm actually pretty happy about that, though, because I expected to get rejected. So that left me to decide between Tufts and Macalester, but I've been pretty much decided on Macalester for like a week now. I'm actually really excited about going there. I'm staying on the waitlist for Vassar, but if I don't get off it, I really won't be that disappointed.

My aunt's coming over this afternoon for like an hour I guess kind of for Easter, but more kind of just to talk to my parents. I haven't seen her since Brett died, so I'm kind of... not looking forward to her coming, I guess? I know that sounds bad, but I just won't know how to act around her, and I won't be able to say the right thing, and I've never been at all close to my aunt, and... I don't know. My mom said I don't have to stay out with them the entire time, but I feel weird her being here and me just sitting in my room for an hour. But then again, I'm pretty sure they're going to be talking about what she's going to do now without him and other stuff that... I can't really help with and blah. I don't know. =/ Oh well. I'll figure it out.

Rejected from Brown, which, I mean, I love Brown, but it's not like I was expecting to get in. Now I'm just waiting on Amherst, but that'll probably also be a rejection. I think I'm going to go to Macalester. As much as I was excited about getting into Tufts Friday, I just like Macalester more. This wouldn't have been the case like 6 months ago, but this past week I've been researching it a lot and looking at these posts on this forum the admissions officers made for people who have been accepted to ask current students questions, and I just really like it. I love their Humanities, Media, and Cultural studies major, and their psych major also looks pretty good (although part of Tufts that's still drawing me to going there is their psychology major with clinical psychology focus). I don't know, there are a lot of good things about Tufts, but I think Macalester is a much better fit for me. (Plus, it's like $10,000 cheaper.)

I watched the season 3 premiere of Doctor Who. This isn't really at all an episode review and it's not even spoilery for this episode, but there is a small spoiler (that I feel like everyone must have heard by now, but I can't be sure of that) for the end of the season, so under the cut it goes. Doctor Who 3.01: Smith and Jones )

And now I have the urge to buy seasons 1 and 2 of Doctor Who on amazon (and they're so much cheaper than they used to be! I saw season 1 in Barnes and Noble when I was in Minneapolis last summer and it was $100, and now they're both $65ish!) and I'm trying to resist because I don't really need to blow the remaining $100 on my gift certificate to, and anyways, I blew a lot of money off my visabuxx card on gas and Paintshop Pro (because I freaking lost the CD! and then had to get a new computer) and whatever else, but I really have the urge to get them because I want to see them again. Also, I want Torchwood to be on again. I don't really know why. I just got the urge to watch it when watching Doctor Who.

Anyways, I also finally watched the last two episodes of Battlestar Galactica (I generally record them because I hate watching TV on Sunday night, and I hate watching shows at 10 PM even more, so BSG's timeslot is pretty much the worst thing ever) and I don't feel like talking extensively about them, but the end of the finale totally blew my mind (even though I was kind of predicting something like that pretty much all through those two episodes). And for the past... well since it came back in January, I've been kind of meh about BSG but those episodes (especially the finale!) have made me all ridiculously excited about it again, and now it's not coming back until next January? Why must you torture me?!

One week until spring break! How did that happen? I was expecting it to not be for another week or so! But ah, so excited. Band trip to San Fran! Many days where I can sit around and watch movies and maybe finally watch seasons 5-7 of The West Wing, because yeah, I haven't touched those DVDs since February. This week is going to be a bitch, but it'll be awesome when it's finally over.

omg I GOT INTO TUFTS! I'm so seriously shocked by this. It's more selective than Vassar or Haverford (or ok maybe around the same as Haverford?) and I was expecting a rejection, at best a waitlist. But I got in! Now I don't know what to do. I had kind of dismissed it before, but I think I just did that because I didn't think I'd get in and wanted to soften the blow, you know? But at one time I really loved it. And I've been having trouble with Berkeley vs. Macalester, and Tufts is kind of a compromise between the two. It has the opportunities and prestige that Berkeley has but it also has the smaller size and more liberal arts feel (even though it is a university) of Macalester. Wow. This is going to take some thinking, now.

I also found out I got into UCLA yesterday after I posted, but... once I got into Berkeley I kind of assumed that would be the case (although I did hear of several people today at school who got into Berkeley and not LA, so you never know). I also got rejected by Stanford, but, you know, whatever. I'm pretty much convinced they only accept like 8 students a year and that they just accidentally put the % next to the 8% acceptance rate.

Anyways. Nothing else has been going on other than everyone getting into colleges and everyone talking about colleges all the time (which is pretty apparent from all my posts this week). The only other cool thing that happened this week is that I found out a poem I wrote for English got selected for the little poetry journal thing my English teacher puts out every time we write a poem. (I don't think I explained that very well.) It's not a huge deal, she selects like... 25-ish poems out of her... 100? maybe? students and then puts them all in a booklet and stuff and yeah, anyways, the poem I wrote for that assignment was chosen which was really shocking because I am awful at writing poetry (my first poem was terrible) and it was a bitch to write. But it made me really happy to see that.

So only two colleges left to hear from: Amherst and Brown. Unlikely I'll get into either (2 people from my school already got into Brown, and they don't like taking more than 1-2 from each school), but I guess there's always a chance.
brokenrecord: (Default)
Waitlisted at Haverford. Better than I thought, honestly. I expected to get rejected because I didn't show much interest in the school, it was near the bottom of my list, and it's pretty selective. I don't think it's as well-known but it had about a 24-26% acceptance rate last year which is smaller than Vassar and Tufts. It just kind of makes me nervous because now I definitely don't think I have any chance at Brown or Amherst, and I'm really worried about Vassar, which is my first choice. sigh. I'll be fine with everything as long as I get into Vassar, but I'm really afraid I'm going to be rejected. On the plus side, along with the letter from Haverford, I got a letter from Macalester offering me a scholarship which I didn't expect since it wasn't a safety school, so I at least have that to be happy about.

Today there was an "anti-apathy" protest at lunch. Yes, it was as stupid as it sounds. It was going to be anti-war but then they changed it to being anti-apathy about the war and it was all just very poorly done. I mean, I'm against the war and against being ignorant about the war, but I just felt it was all pointless. What were they hoping to achieve? The people who care... well, they care, and the people who don't aren't going to start caring because like 30 students are gathered at the crossroads during lunch. I mean, for example, I was walking behind two kids and heard this conversation:

Girl: Are you going to the anti-war protest?
Boy: Fuck no!
Girl: What, you're for the war?
Boy: No, I just don't care.

That amused me a lot. But yeah, it was just kind of pointless.

I thought I'd have a lot to do tonight because of missing two days, but it turns out I don't have much at all. Pretty good.

Accepted to Macalester yesterday! Pretty happy about this. Not my first choice, but I like it more than anywhere else I've been accepted so far, and it's a really nice school. The envelope said "YES MACALESTER" pretty large on the envelope. I think it'd be funny if the rejection letter said "NO MACALESTER" and waitlist said "MAYBE MACALESTER." (Well, that'd be mean if it really was like that, but it's funny to think about.)

Since getting accepted to Whitman last Friday, I got two letters from them on Tuesday and one today. And they're all just like "Congratulations on getting accepted! Here are the reasons why you should go to Whitman!" And... ok, I can see sending one to me, but three? Isn't that a bit overkill? I think maybe they're just going to send me one everyday until I say I'll go to their school.

It's the SCSBOA Band and Orchestra Festival at my school, and my house smells like potatoes because of it. My mom's been baking potatoes all day to sell at the school and so now it just smells like potatoes everywhere. Festival's been a lot more fun this year so far. I remember really hating it last year, and the year before wasn't much better (freshman year was good, though). But I like this year. I think mostly because I'm not guiding. That gets really tiring after awhile. Sight reading room and judge's aide is the way to go.

So much real life stuff going on all of a sudden, and now I have no time for TV and fandom. Such sadness. I thought I'd be able to relax more what with Festival and not having any classes today or tomorrow, but yesterday I ended up taking 6 hours making the senior pages for the memory book (for the end of the year band banquet) and I had no time to even think about starting the junior pages, and so today I have to do those, hopefully in time to watch Ugly Betty tonight. I probably can't watch Supernatural, I skipped Lost last night, and I skipped Battlestar Galactica last Sunday, so I'll have all of those to watch tomorrow, except that tomorrow is more Festival and then I think Emma wanted to go see Comedy Sports at 7:30, and then Saturday is crazy day with Fullerton Jazz Festival and Jackie/Galaxy/Richard birthday party. sigh. I've gotten way too busy all of a sudden. :(

Two more weeks of school and then spring break! Ridiculous. I thought it was so much further away. I don't think I've mentioned this, but I'm going for four days with band to San Francisco at the end of spring break, and I'm really looking forward to it.

All right, time for working on the junior pages.
