I'm so tired of my internet being slow! It's not dial-up slow, but it's not as fast as it should be either. I just sent two e-mails that each had five picture attachments. They each took about five minutes... just to attach the pictures! This is unacceptable! I don't guess there's much I can do about. I even tried shutting down and restarting my computer in hopes that would do some good. Nothing. So, I've complained. Now, I'm done.

School: Take 2

So, last night I'm sitting in my humanities class wondering if I'm the only idiot who isn't understanding one damn thing that the prof is rambling about. I'm taking lots of notes and hoping they're going to make sense when I need them. I finally turn to the girl next to me when class is just about over and say, "Is any of this making sense?" to which she replies, "None." This should make me feel better, right? Somehow, it doesn't. I'm no rocket scientist, but I'm pretty damn smart IMHO. So, if no one is understanding what the hell he's rambling about how are any of us supposed to learn shit?! It's just frustrating as all get out! *headdesk*

Now, in my second class of the evening, things actually make sense! The instructor is very nice and explains things and starts conversations and everyone is understanding what we're talking about. I actually enjoy this class and look forward to the discussions.

So, I absolutely hate dragging my ass out the door to go to school because I know I have to sit through an hour and a half of the rambling jack ass before I get to go to the class I like. I know it's stupid to complain about it because I have to go regardless of how I feel towards the man or the class, but it really does make enjoying school not so enjoyable.

First Day of School

Tonight was the beginning of the Spring semester for me. It wasn't too terrible. Should be an interesting semester if tonight was any indication. The professor for my humanities class seems a little out there. He uses a lot of movie quotes and goes off on tangents quite regularly. I'm all for a tangent now and then, but I don't watch a lot of movies so his quotes were completely lost on me. Hopefully he doesn't do this the entire semester or I'll likely end up banging my head on the desk. The second class is the continuation of the social science class that I took last semester. Same room, same prof, different book. Go figure! I have a feeling this one is going to be interesting. Last semester there weren't a whole lot of people that interacted during the lectures and it seems as though this semester will be totally different. That's definitely a good thing, but I have a feeling there will be a good deal of debating as the class goes on. Should be interesting. I'm also taking a web based math class. Haven't done the online class thing before so it should be interesting to see how this works. I read an e-mail from the prof this morning, but haven't yet figured out how to actually get online and do the work. Will definitely have to figure that out in the morning. Don't want to get behind because I'm too stupid to find the class on the web. All in all it seems like it will be a good semester. I just have to stay on top of the reading... as there will be A LOT of reading! Woo-hoo!

The Worlds Ugliest Scarf

So, last Wednesday one of the ladies in my knitting class offered to loan me a set of her harmony circular needles. I thought to myself, "I can knit something up in a week and give them back to her next Wednesday!" So, I'd had them five days and hadn't done anything with them. Yesterday, as I'm thinking about knitting a pair of socks I think to myself once again, "Crap, I better use those needles for something or I'm going to look like an ass!" So, I grab a bunch of yarn that I never would've put together and started knitting. I'm thinking it may turn into the ugliest scarf ever! It's dark purple, green, light purple and rose. I need to get it done before 7pm tomorrow night so I can give back the needles and show off the ugly scarf. Maybe I'm wrong and it wont be ugly. I'll post a picture when I can.

Useless Information... I'm full of it!

I just read something that said the average person passes gas sixteen times per day. It also said that women pass gas just as frequently as men. Wow! It's amazing we don't poop ourselves at that rate!

I hate being broke!

I try really hard not to complain about the fact that I'm currently jobless and have very little money. Unfortunately, today, I need to complain! My unemployment got screwed up this week and I didn't get my check. I just balanced my checkbook and I have $10. Yep! That's it, a whopping $10! Woo-hoo! I'm so freakin' happy right now! I got a letter from the unemployment people that I can call them on Wednesday to get it straightened out. Wednesday?! I was supposed to have my money last Friday!? And they want me to wait until Wednesday to get it worked out so I can have my money when? Next Friday if I'm really, really luck?! What a pile of horse shit! I think the reason this is REALLY bugging me today is because we're expecting a big snow storm tonight. They're calling it a blizzard, but I wont believe it until I see it. Anyway, I finally got a snowblower (which makes me eternally greatful!), but I need to get more gas for it so I'm ready for this blizzard. Problem is I only have TEN DOLLARS! That and I don't want to waste the gas going to get the gas can, gas, and oil I need for the stupid thing. I'm just really frustrated at the whole situation. I so badly want to go back to work. I'm not the kind of person that does well with doing nothing. Fortunatley, my old partner from work called me last week and asked if I wanted to do a side job with him. That was supposed to start today and got pushed back to Thursday. So, if nothing else I'll have a few bucks in my pocket by Friday. Praise God!
