I've had a lovely break, watched television, seen family, boyfriend, pals et. al. Went sledding. I'm actually pretty happy to be back here at school again, working, working out, keeping busy. I don't keep up with all the headlines all the time anymore, mainly just read political humor, and get the basic idea of what's going on. I don't have a job where I sit in front of a computer anymore, but I still try to do earth friendly things like packing myown lunch and riding my bike. I'm a little converned what will ahppen when we run out of oil, which won't be for forty years or so, but as it becomes more and more difficult to extract the oil from the well, it will get increasingly scarce and expensive. Which at first you think, fine I won't use my car, right? The problem is, everything that you use has to get delivered to the store in a truck. It's a headache, but I think it's of monumental importance that we all start thinking about this soon. Try doing a google search for "peak oil" or "Matthew Simmons" or both, and see what you get. I know, there's alarmist tactics there, but the numbers are real. Just don't panic, ok?

I would make little streamers and stuff here if I could.
the pathetic part: all my undergrad friends want to go out and party
and stuff, while I'm just happy I can watch TV again. I'm really
excited about showering every day, getting dressed every day, seeing my
family and my boy.
I feel like a grown-up. Wah!
|I really have been meaning to post a blog entry so that next one would no longer sit at the top for quite some time now...I've even gone to post a few times. Once I was going to tell you all these funny Bush jokes I heard on A Prarie Home Companion, but I couldn't remember them. Here's the one I can remember:|
Q: How many Bush Administration officials does it take to screw in a lightbulb?
A: None. We didn't need a new lightbulb; there was nothing wrong with that lightbulb, if you're suggesting ther was something wrong with that lightbulb, then you must really hate America!
Oh, here's another one:
Q: What's the difference between the Iraq war and the Vietnam war?
A: George W. Bush had an exit strategy for Vietnam.
Yeah, those are some funny jokes. Sigh...
Anyway, I have an Annotated Bibliography due in like thirteen hours and I have four more sources to annotate, then proofread, properly cite and rationalize my primary sources...my undergrad friends don't know what in the hell any of that is, and usually if they say they do, they are LYING. You're lying too, aren't you?
Sometimes I get paranoid alone at the computer at night...start doing Google searches for "who is watching me?", weirdo stuff like that.
What am I even still doing talking to you people! Don't you know I have work to do?
note: edited for typo
Ok. This blows, and this blows big time. I don't really know what more to say, except that whatever doesn't kill us makes us stronger. Here's hoping this doesn't kill us.
And if you don't know what I'm talking about, who are you and how did you find my website?
