Reading peoples' blogs is very interesting. People say such interesting things. Mostly people seem to talk about all the depressing stuff that has happened to them. I guess it works like a journal except that people can then read what you're going through. ::::shivers::: Woo, scarey thought.
The other night, I finally got to go over to Lina's (yay!!!!!) and we watched Sense and Sensibility. I had never noticed before how Marianne and Elenor were a bit like my sister and I. They were really close, but also really different. Marianne always showed her emotions and expressed herself by playing appropriate songs on the piano. Elenor rarely shared her feelings and focused more on propriety than expressing herself. While of course not exactly like us, my sister and I are a little like that. I found it amusing that I had never noticed before.
Last night, a bunch of the girls on my floor (and some of the brothers until open dorms ended) watched Cellular. That movie was a strange mix of cheesy and suspense. I really liked it except that everybody had a dirty mouth. It made some sense for them to be swearing, considering the situation, but since when have movies been realistic? So, they should have cut it out. It was great at the end when all of us screamed. I love being vocal during movies. What's really cool, is that the kid in the movie (teen, kid, whatever) had a face almost like my main character. So I'm going to borrow his face and see if I can draw a good picture of my main character. My professional art teacher said all great artists trace and that there's nothing wrong with it. :)
So, I should probably go get my laundry and then start my stinkin' school. Wahahaha!!! Homework should DIE!!!!!!!! Oh well, I guess I'd better get over it. Oh! After this semester, I'll be halfway through with college! How freaky is that? I miss my floor already! Well, I will enchant you with more words of wisdom at a later date; for now, it's back to the ol' torture chamber.

Wow, I guess it's been awhile. As usual, over break, I decided not to mess with anything that had anything to do with anything. In other words, I ignored blogs, IMs, and e-mail, focusing solely on mindless activities and the only productive activity I can find--writing.
It's great to be back, except for the whole school thing (I have to leave for class in two minutes while my brain screams "No more!"). My floor is still awesome. We went camping last weekend in 20 degree weather. My plus twenty sleeping bag wasn't really plus twenty. :) I have five classes M-W-F, starting at 8:15 and going til 3:30 with an hour break for lunch. Oh joy. But my last class is Computer Science which I love so far. Hmm, I should procastinate later by finishing this post since I now have to go to class . . .
Well, we just got back from our first intramural football game. We won!!! Yay!!! But, only cause the other team didn't show. So, we scrimaged with the apartments. They are really fun to play. They're very encouraging, and they laugh a lot.
Oh! Last Thursday I sent my book to the publishers! Yay! I should hear back in 4-6 months. I can't wait. I'll probably get rejected, but that's okay, it's my first step. Yay! Well, I should probably go write a computer program for Wednesday. Goodbye.
