So my dad and I made the drive up north today. We made it in six and a half hours, which is a record, but we had awesome traffic through LA and very little up the central valley, and I sped 95% of the time, so it wasn't really that unexpected.

The apartment is awesome. :) I'm mostly unpacked, although I'm not sure if I'm going to remember where I put everything tomorrow. Especially in the kitchen - we'll see. The Comcast guy is coming tomorrow to set up our internet and TV, so I can stop stealing the neighbor's wireless. The only real issue I'm having is that I haven't had a chance to figure out the alarm system yet. That makes me a little nervous, since we're on the first floor, and I am paranoid as fuck.

BUT ANYWAY I am happy to be back at school, even though school itself doesn't start for another week and a half.

My butt is sunburned.

I was so good all over with my sunscreen, EXCEPT MY BUTT.


Also, it hurts to wear underwear, which is super fun.

Okay, so saga is probably too strong a word.

A few days ago, I opened my sliding glass door to get some air in my room since it's been pretty hot here. There was a giant bug, perched and lurking malevolently, between the netting part of the door and the glass. I screamed and slammed my door shut again, because it was a giant fucking bug and I didn't want it getting into my room and eating me in my sleep or whatever I thought it would do. Satisfied and thinking I had crushed it with my door, I slept well.

Fast forward to today. My mom is in the backyard and calls me out, so I open my sliding glass door and what do I see - yes, the giant fucking bug. I scream again, slam the door hoping for a more effective squashing, and go outside another way. My mom asks how I ever survive on my own, and eventually comes to kill the bug. We do not believe in the rights of bugs in this house. Just this morning we killed like fifty ants with Windex and vacuumed them up later.

Anyway, instead of disposing of the no doubt super dangerous bug, she knocks it into my room where it hides under her Pilates machine and then INSIDE MY SHOE. While I'm perched on the piano bench - again, this could be a dangerous giant fucking bug - the guy painting our house comes in and asks what all the fuss is. The bug is fucking skittering around in my shoe and I am still hiding in the hallway, so he kills it because apparently my mother and I are totally incompetent.

You can tell the painter isn't my dad because he didn't chase me around the house with the bug covered paper towel.

NOW I CAN SLEEP TRULY SAFELY. And also skip the gym tomorrow, since there are bug guts in my shoe.

This fathers day cake is like

I don't even know

It's the worst in a line of increasingly catastrophic cakes

My dad is on Atkins, so we were trying to do an Atkins friendly cake, but it requires so much butter and so little flour and there is wax paper stuck to it and the frosting is disgusting, and we're trying to disguise that by covering it in more delicious berries

I'm thinking of making a card saying "the level of deliciousness of this cake is not in any way indicative of our love for you, we promise", but we'll see how my sister feels about that

I have drugged my cats in preparation for the move and they are wandering around like they're drunk. Running into things and failing to jump onto things and falling over. They keep trying to attack each other but failing miserably and it's the cutest thing ever.

oh dear

hahahaha oh apartment complex, you so funny

I just got a notice shoved in my door that there are apparently people breaking into cars and stealing things.



uneasy_cornerstone: (Default)
Because finals by themselves AREN'T STRESSFUL ENOUGH, let's add a smashed in drivers side window four days before I make an 8 hour trip.

As if breaking into my goddamn car isn't enough, whyyyy must you break the drivers side window. That's just adding insult to injury, really.

I am so sick of smallpox vaccine opposition, internets, let me tell you!

Actually that's not my main problem right now. I cannot write this stupid essay, because I disagree with the main premise that globalism is somehow inherently better than nationalism, and I feel like my professor wants us to basically say that everything would be fine if the pesky old US would just fall in line.

And I cannot handle that paper right now.

But it's due in 15 freaking hours, so I guess I'll have to get over that soon.

On a related note, what kind of self-respecting Starbucks closes at 9:30?

whyyyy self

how, in the decision between 'paper worth 50% of your grade in a required class' and 'online pokemon collecting', did I decide the latter was clearly more important?

it'll serve me right if I fail this class, really.

I just had the most exciting Spanish requirement revelation ever!

For my minor, I have to take up to Spanish 100, which means 1, 2, 3, 21, 22, 23, and 100. As of now, I have completed 2, and only have three quarters left.

I thought that 100 was only offered in the fall, which meant that I would have to take a super intensive class over the summer, intensive enough to skip four Spanish classes. Apparently, though, it's offered in the spring as well, which means I only have to skip two classes!

While still not as ideal as say, keeping up with my requirements would have been, my stress level just decreased by like a zillion.

oh my god i am so tired

is this quarter over yet?

i was actually too tired to go grocery shopping today. i guess that means rice for dinner.

Finally I am done with the world's most depressing book! Now just a two hour discussion on it tomorrow, and I won't have to think about it for a few more weeks! JOY!

visited 15 states (6.66%)
Where has you been? or this is a poor translation of something, idk what

Russia makes it look like I've been EVERYWHERE. But I was only on the far west side of Russia, so the map is misleading. OH WELL.

Also, it is SO VERY CLEAR where my interests lie. Sorry, Africa and Asia.
