wow. it's been awhile, huh kids?

my computer crashed at the beginning of november...just like it did last year. entirely new hard drive. i hate this machine sometimes.

so it's finals week, and i have one left - tomorrow at one o' clock. stressful stuff, but i'm okay. friday'll be fun, i'm trying to hang out with everyone i know before we all go home for the break.

hmmm...there's probably no one out there anymore.

oh yes, we saw tenacious d last night. it was completely worth driving 4 1/2 hours to san francisco, going practically straight to the concert, going back to my house and passing out for 3 hours of sleep, then getting up at 4:30 in the morning and driving back to san luis obispo to take a fucking history test that's worth half my grade. the d was awesome and i nailed the test. life is pretty good.

i practically would have done all that shit just to see kg in his little white shoes and black whatever-the-hell-that-was halloween costume. nastyman? something like that. also would've done it just to see jb racing around the stage like a ritalin-deprived 10 year old.

i cannot do this. i cannot deal with my fucking life right now, it SUCKS. i'm on the verge of a breakdown of some kind, i swear to god.

- CSC 234, C & UNIX Programming: 2 highly un-readable chapters to go through, a quiz next tuesday, an entire program to write before next tuesday...the trick here is understanding this shit, and C programming is so far over my head that it isn't even funny - the teacher is HORRIBLE.

- HIST 214, History/Economy of Latin America and the Middle East: HUGE midterm at 9 in the morning next thursday, the day after the tenacious d concert in san francisco - that's right, we're going to have to leave at 4 in the morning to drive back to san luis obispo. this is on everything we've covered so far; she gave us about FORTY FIVE possible essay questions, and we'll get two on the test itself - i have to write for 50 minutes on two fucking questions, so i have to be incredibly prepared for each possible question.

- ENGL 251, Great Books [Classical]: midterm next friday, covering all 6 weeks of class, ie all of the iliad and the odyssey.

- ENGL 145, Argumentative Writing: the most depressing class of all, because i'm getting an 81% after three essays when i should definitely be getting an A - english is my STRONG point, i'm supposed to be GOOD at this, i'm switching into the fucking major for chrissakes! plus i just spent TWO DAYS studying for a midterm and then didn't nail it like i should have - thanks to the vaguely worded fill-in-the-blank questions. this teacher is not TEACHING. she's smart and she knows how to write an essay but she isn't teaching me how to do that, the book is...i took my last, most-heavily-weighted essay to her before i turned it in and she didn't really have any suggestions, yet i get a C-. THANK YOU SO MUCH, I THOUGHT YOU WERE SUPPOSED TO TEACH ME. not to mention i have a one-page symposium paper due tuesday, and those last two essays to COMPLETELY re-haul in the dim hope of gaining a grade point on each.

i'm doing everything i'm supposed to be doing...i'm completely caught up on all my reading, and i'm going to all my classes, and i take awesome notes, and i'm studying like a maniac and i cannot get it right. I'M DOING EVERYTHING I'M SUPPOSED TO BE DOING. i thought that i was getting sub-par grades before because i didn't do any work and didn't always go to class...now i find out it's because i'm just not smart enough. i can't take this. i cannot deal with my life, i cannot do this.

last night i needed some stress relief so i finished all my work and climbed into bed and put on grace so i could cry myself to sleep...and i felt fine. i did, that album is home to me, it's gorgeous. it's the sweetest sad thing i've ever heard, to paraphrase cameron crowe - it's a masterpiece. and the thing is, i had things under control last night...but my english class, ohhh i can't take this writing class. it's made everything a thousand times worse, and it isn't fair. i don't deserve that.

i just finished the final draft on an essay for english.

i'm almost entirely caught up on ALL of my homework and ALL of my reading, which is beyond awesome.

"undeclared" is on in half an hour and john cusack is on letterman.

ryan adams has a beautiful, gravelly voice.

feelin' pretty good right about now.

actually, you know what? i'm not heartbroken about it not being winter...i'm pretty happy about being right here. oddly content, if you will. i'm excited about starting a new quarter and doing the school thing right this time. i'm excited about being here with these people. there are things in my life that i'm not satisfied with, but right now i can let those things go. my mood will probably change sometime soon...hell, it could change this afternoon, i'm so up and down. but still, right now i'm happy with my life, and i can't often say that.

you know, it's odd being here in san luis a few weeks after the wtc business. it's like being in a bubble where those things didn't really happen...i don't know. no one really talks about it because this town is made up almost entirely of selfish college students who just want to get drunk and laid. odd odd odd. the only time it's actually happened is during class when we have discussions about it.

let's see if i can recap the past few days...

- crashing classes sucks but it makes you ridiculously happy if you get the schedule you want.
- thank god cal poly students ride the bus for free because otherwise i'd be out an extra $30 a month and that's only if - went nowhere but to school once a day.
- i desperately want a car.
- i love denny's.
- i love liz.
- i love my schedule.
- vikki, joanne, and erin are all much more pleasant if i only see them every few days because i don't live in the dorms with them anymore.
- meghan and kate are much less pleasant if i see them every day because now i live in a tiny apartment with them.
- for chrissake's when do tickets for the san francisco tenacious d concert go on sale icheckeverydayanditdrivesmenuts.

so this weekend should be great. one, we have friday off. two, liz's new boyfriend chris is coming up from san diego to visit and i'm excited to meet him. three, friday night we're cooking a seriously awesome meal - liz's mom's insane macaroni and cheese, plus chris is apparently making cheesecake. this means leftovers, which mean Actual Food in my house for once. four, we're all going out somewhere saturday and that should be fun because alcohol makes everything more fun. five, all of this adds up to: spending time with liz, spending time outside my apartment, eating good food, going good places. wee.
