September 2004

Alrighty. It took way too much effort to figure out the date. Sigh. Well I finished cleaning the old apartment this afternoon. Man, am I tired. Everything is moved into the new apartment. I picked up the futon on Saturday night and John helped me put it together. (Thanks, John. *MWA!*) Good thing, because I would have had a hell of a time trying to figure it out. Who knew that an allen wrench was just a bent piece of metal? Pfft. Plus, all that turning of bolts and crap. That's a man's job. Hee hee. As long as I found one who was willing to do it, why not, right? He then "rescued" his kids from Octoberfest (lol) and came back later with a bottle of rum. We sat and talked for an hour or so. I don't know. He seemed a lot more relaxed in this new place. Maybe it was no one else was there, maybe it was he's happier with where his life is now. I don't know. But I liked it. And he left the alcohol at my house, so this means he should come over more often. At least that's the way I choose to look at it. :) He could come over every day and that would be just fine with me. Highly unlikely, but that's another subject. And he was quite the gentlemen the whole time. (Well, aside from the momentary conversation about bending me over the futon seeing as it was the perfect height.) But then he left to go watch boxing. LoL. And that's ok too. I was in a pretty good mood so it didn't bother me. (And the love-hate saga of John continues. I know, it's obnoxious. I just can't seem to figure it all out so I just go with it. We'll see how long it lasts this time.)
Classes are still deathly boring. In all honesty, I'm not really missing having the net or tv at home. I check e-mail at work and I come on campus to do other things (including updating this website.) TV, eh, haven't missed. I have watched some movies, but for the most part I've just been reading more. It's better that way. Books contribute more towards the enhancement of the brain anyway, right? Although I suppose that depends on what kind of books one reads. I just finished A Widow for One Year (my favorite book, by the way.) I'm not sure what I'll delve into next. Perhaps The Female Man. I bought that a while back and never had the chance to read it. I don't think. If I DID read it, I don't remember it. Never hurts to re-read something. Unless it's a book like Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance. That one hurt the first time around. I can only imagine the pain of a second go-round. (aaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!)
Ya gotta love the "honors" program here at UWO. Inflicting crap like that on innocent freshmen. And then inflicting a semester about "the idea of race" to a group of white, middle-class seniors. Bah!
Not that I'm dissing UWO or anything. Fine education. You get what you pay for, I guess. (Reminder: UWO is the cheapest school in the entire state of Wisconsin.) Muahahahahahahahahaha
And with that, I guess I'll leave the wonderful Radford Lab for the evening. Don't want to run into some guy whacking off...yuck...

So, the internet was shut off yesterday around 3:30 or 4. And then this army of Time Warner guys show up at my door. They knock. I answer. They ask, "Does Laura Miller live here?" I answer (truthfully), "Nope." Before I can even suggest that they might want all their equipment back, they say "Ok, thanks" and leave. Oooook then. I guess they don't really want it back too badly. Now I'm going to have to make a much bigger effort if I want to get it back to them. I'm not sure it's worth it. So, hey, if any of you reading this work for Time Warner Cable, I've got all your crap at my apartment. Come pick it up when you want it back. On the other hand, if you prefer leaving it with me and charging Laura for it, good luck getting the money, but have fun! That's fine with me!
In other news, hmmm, nevermind. There really IS no other news. I start moving tomorrow. I still don't have a job. That's about it.
Ho hum.

You know, I don't even remember typing that last entry. That's kinda sad.
In any case, I didn't think it was possible, but I'm afraid I'm going to not learn EVEN MORE this semester than I didn't learn in the last one. I thought last semester was the pinnacle of worthless time spent pretending to get an education. I was wrong. *sob* The only way I can think on the bright side of this one is to tell myself that I'm not even paying for it. But I'm wasting a hell of a lot of time. I could be doing other things. Like working at a real job that pays me more. ARGH!
People online have really started to bug me so I think I'll be ok with it disappearing in a week or so. People just suck. Everyday I confirm my "choice" to never get married and never have kids. To think about bringing some other devil spawn into the world is just crazy. And to think about having to be with some person all the time...every just too much. Even someone you love with all your heart would get on your nerves I think.
I've been having issues lately. I'm not sure what kind of issues. Just normal psychosis or something. The endless battle amongst my inner selves. Or something. I think this is due to way too much free time. Or at least free "brain" time. (See aforementioned lack of education occuring at school.) So, my brain wanders. I need to start sitting in the back of the classroom and reading a magazine. For 3 hours. Yeah. I'm tired now.

This semester is going to be so boring. My QBA and music classes are basically just huge insults to my intelligence. Hmm...what's a time signature? Excel can do WHAT? Argh!!! The other classes aren't as bad as those two, but still, no motivation, no interest. My history professor is cute. But married. But still cute. That's about all I have to say about school.
I get the keys to the new apartment on the 23rd. So, if any of you want to help me move my shit, let me know. Also, if anyone knows of someone who needs a computer desk or a full size bed, I still have those sitting around here. If no one buys them, I have to call some charity place and beg them to pick them up I guess. What a pain. I've been having dreams about Laura taking me on Judge Judy because I didn't cancel the cable. It's a good dream. I kick her ass in court (Figuratively. I think I'd stand no chance in a physical altercation. She's got a good 75-100 pounds on me there. Heh.) and Judge Judy gives her a royal yell fest. Something about "responsibility"... Aaah.
That's about all I've got. I've had no time to do anything lately. I wonder what happened. Must have messed up my scheduling of free time this semester. Oops. Oh well. :)

Hmm...weird. Classes start today. But that fact is really of no significance. At least, not to me. Oooh...I need a huge transplant of motivation. That's really about all I've got to say. Work calls.

For some reason, on the way home from work today, I got to thinking about the guy I lost my virginity to. I'm not sure why. It was weird. Aah, the good times. It's amazing how much can change in a relatively short amount of time. Unfortunately, most changes have been bad. Eh. So it goes. I think the less said about that, the better.
So, school starts in less than a week. I've been extraordinarily crabby lately, so perhaps this is a good thing. This is the first time I've been happy to get a tuition bill. Although then the cashier's office changes their hours and I'm not sure when I'm going to be able to go get my books. Sigh. Who needs 'em?
Temptation to smoke has been growing. I think my theory about stress relief lying in smoking or sex is a pile of shit. I don't want sex. Although I have been tempted to smoke. So maybe there is some truth to it. Or perhaps it's just boredom. Who knows. It's been too hot lately. I think my brain is melting.
