I'm supposed to wake up early tomorrow and go to the orthodontist. And then I come back, pack up my stuff, and sit around until about dinner time. And then I go to the airport and fly back to Montana. If I'm awake during the flight, I really need to read about 40 pages in this book for class. If not, then I'll be really fucked in class on Tuesday. I'll get back to my room sometime around 1 in the morning, so I won't have any time to read that book unless I read it during the day tomorrow or on the plane. I think I might hate that book a lot.

Today I decided I would mix up my already solved Rubik's Cube, and then solve it. It took a few hours, but I got it. And then I mixed it up again, and solved it again. I did that at least three more times, before I lost count of how many times I solved it. I'm pretty much an amazing person. I'm putting it down for good tonight, because I think it might be giving me a headache. But that last time I solved it was pretty awesome; I hadn't even made it to the really complicated part when I found it was finished.

Somewhere hiding in my bedroom is my Death Note knitting bag and my copy of Shadow of the Colossus. They aren't in my dorm, so I assume they got left here after Christmas break. But my inability to quickly glance around and find these items really worries me. What if I left them in my old dorm with Ali? Then I'll never see these items again, and these things are pretty important to me. Let's hope I remember to scour my room searching for them before I fly back to Montana tomorrow.

I forgot to tell you, but I'm going back home this weekend. And by this weekend, I mean that I am currently sitting on a couch, watching Top Gear with my father. So I'm at home right now. I've got an orthodontist appointment on Monday, and I guess they thought they'd just fly me out for the entire weekend.

Boy, am I tired. I took three exams this week. I only got a C+ on that exam I took on Monday. I'm not happy with that at all. I took another exam on Wednesday, and I got a D+ on that. I'm pretty upset about that, considering the fact that I was pretty sure I got at least a high B on the exam. And looking at the answer key, I don't understand how my grade could possibly be so low. Did he take points off because I didn't have the right feelings while filling in my bubbles? And then I took one last exam this morning. I sure as heck hope there isn't a trend of some sort going on, because that would mean I got an F+ on that last exam. Not even funny.

Man, I had all of these insightful things I wanted to talk about here today, but I'm all tired from traveling and testing all day, and now frustrated by my bad grades. Bah humbug.

I have an exam in thirty minutes, but instead of doing something useful like studying, I think I'll type up an entry.

I have yarn all over my room, and it is getting silly. Especially since I never rolled them into balls after I bought them. They're just that weird oval shape the store sells them in. And since I've been pulling the yarn out the middle so that they don't go rolling everywhere as I knit, they're all deflating, with yarn coming loose and tangling everywhere. It's like a yarn spider came and shot lumpy web all over the place.

Okay, I have to go clean up this yarn, it's bothering me.

I just went through the Buttercup Festival archives again. Every time I do, I end up getting all introspective. And then I find a comic that I'm pretty sure is an accurate representation of my life. Let me show you want I think describes me:

The loneliness, the pure joy, the confusion, the desperation, the rocks--That must be me.

I really can't think of much else to say, other than point out the fact that I am tired. I also have to do laundry tomorrow morning, and I really don't want to. I'd much rather sleep in. But I have to get into the habit of doing two loads every Thursday and Tuesday... I can't tell if I'm leading a really boring life, or if I am leading a really awesome life.

Bo Kemian

I had to give a short argument in front of the class today. Afterward, everyone pretty much looked like this:


One student said, quietly under his breath, "Intense," and the professor said "Well, I think we're looking at a future public defender."

I really hate presenting stuff like that, but that was a pretty awesome reaction. Maybe I should give more arguments about why Socrates should have died. Or at least continue to talk loudly in small rooms. I think it was the loud talking that did it, actually, and not the intensity of my argument. I was speaking pretty loud.

I know it's weird, but I really want to get Muscle March on the Wii. And then the next time I have a bunch of people over in my room, I want them all to play it. And hopefully, general laughs will be had. But unfortunately, I do not want to spend the money on it. Even though it's actually only 500 Wii points. And I probably already have that amount sitting on my Wii account anyways.

Hey, wait, I should just go buy it right now. I mean, why not? It'll be more interesting than typing up more useless nothings while I procrastinate on studying.
