So the weeks are practically flying by right now. It's only the end of school-week four, and I can't believe it's already another weekend. I think it helps that I don't have any classes on Fridays, so my work week pretty much ends Thursday night after my WH night class. So far I've managed to scoot by only working and studying on a weekly need. Now that February is in full force, I should probably shift my focus more toward the future and see what homework/papers/hand-ins I can complete now, ahead of time, in order to clear my schedule for studying -err, *ahem* fun things...- in the future. See, I come up with some fantastic scheduling plans and ideas, and I do really well implementing them for a little while, but after a few days I always, always end up missing something -and it's really hard to reschedule something when the schedule's already set, y'know? For example, this weekend I have plans to finish some of next week's homework early because of Disney week (I'll explain in a minute), but something will inevitably come up and I'll not finish as much as I would have hoped to. As you can imagine, this makes it extremely difficult when multiple assignments are due back to back or on the same day. Bahh, I really need to pray for some diligence.
Here at the college, every year they host a Disney week, kind of the fun, let-your-immature-side-out kinda event. From Monday to Friday there are multiple games, events, prize drawings, and such all in the them of Disney, and on Friday night the cafeteria gets decked out to look like a scene of some Disney movie and the theme continues when we pack into the lounge of one of the dorms and watch the Disney movie that corresponds with the theme. In that past, they've done Aladdin and The Lion King -as a major kid-at-heart type, I have got to say it was pretty epic. The ASBers do such a splendid job with the caf, and the trivia for free Disney memorabilia is fun. Not to mention the Mickey Hunt during the week that awards the top two winners a free ticket to Disney. Oh yea, Saturday is the main event: a large number of the student populous carpools down to Anaheim and we spend the day acting fools in Disneyland itself. Tell me, does it really get any better? I think not. This whole event comes a month or so into the semester and a few weeks a month -ish before Spring break, so even though we don't get classes off it's still a fun in-between 'break' just when crunch time sets in. I, being the Disney fool I am, can't pass up the opportunity to participate every year. Especially since the school is able to sell us the DLR tickets for $35, $10 of which will go toward Disney dollars for a meal in the park. It's irresistible, f'reals. Don't judge me. hah.
Ohh I can't believe it took me this long to remember to mention this, but after very much deliberation and the general consensus that a new one was needed, I finally upgraded my iPod. That is to say, I've retired my poor, 5-year-old 2 gig nano and I am now a proud owner of a 32 gig iTouch 4gen ! This is a big thing for me. Being a December baby, all my Christmas-slash-birthday money gets spent on gifts for others, and the leftovers I put aside in my account for groceries and dorm necessities when I move back on campus just after the holidays. This is the first big-ticket item I've bought for myself since the digital camera in 1999 that has been outdated since 2000. hah. So anywho, I practically drove myself insane deciding to spend that much money on one item, but now that I have it I'm glad I caved. Now, dislike the iPhone -I think it has too many unnecessary features- and I still primarily needed a new iPod for musical pleasure, so it's been argued that maybe I should have gone for the classic instead. Well, originally that was my plan. I was going to find an old classic, like 5th gen or so, and just buy a gently used one for maximum song storage. But after some searching and finding out that even used classic's are still quite expensive, I just decided to splurge for once. I also was determined to get a Psych hard case, identical to the case Shawn has for his iPhone on Psych. But the USA network has yet to make one for the iTouch, and the iPhone one was overpriced anyway, so instead I bought a bright green case and I'll just make a custom Psych logo sticker to paste to the back when I get some free time. It won't have the black bottom 1/3 unless I can find a way to paint it, but I'm quite all right with just the green. It's very pretty by itself. =]
As an ending note, I'm extremely desperate to get to a concert soon. I haven't had the opportunity to go to one in months (aside from a small in-house concert back in January...but it doesn't count). A friend of mine just went to a Styxx concert. STYXX. I'm still insanely jealous. I should check out who'll be in Arizona during my Spring break, and Coles and I can roadtrip it out there. That'd be super.
Time to trek it back up the hill to C-dub hall. Stay sharp, y'all.
Going, going, I'm gone away,
