I've been neglecting this. I know. I am just busy, and the drugs make me so sleepy and loopy that I prefer to sleep when I have free time.

I have a midterm this morning that I don't think I am prepared for. Huspaz.

I also have an assignment that I need to complete and a quiz and a lab and work.

When I get home tonight at midnight, I will simply collapse with joy knowing that I don't need to go to school until 2pm. Maybe I can write you guys something worthwhile tomorrow morning? That would be nice, I think!

Girl Sailor

The gutter may profess its love,
Then follow it with hesitation,
But there are just so many of
You out there for rent

A stronger girl would shake this off in flight,
And never give it more than a frowning hour,
But you have let your heart decide,
Loss has conquered you,

You've won one too many fights,
Wearing many hats every time,
But you won't win here tonight,

You've made it through the direst of straits alright,
Can you help it if plain love now seems less interesting?
You haven't changed an ounce in my eyes,
And I cannot lecture you,

And does anything I say seem relevant at all?
You've been at the helm since you were just five,
While I cannot claim to be more than a passenger,

But, you've won one too many fights,
Wearing all of your clothes at the same time,
Let the good times end tonight,
Oh girl, sail her, don't sink her,
This time,

Just a moment or two from now,
Not a mind will retain even a trace,
Of the thoughts that I struggled to tell
And how our stack of cards just fell,

So settle this once and for all,
The light no longer shows the cracks around my door,
And I have no lantern to light your way home tonight,

You are not some saint who's above,
Giving someone a stroll through the flowers,
You've got so much more to dream of,
Oh girl, sail her, don't sink her,
This time,
This time,
This time.

- The Shins

This song made me smile this morning. The Shins often make me smile. So does Nestea. Considering I'm going to class, I am having a good morning. Big things to do today!

I recently mentioned to a friend that she should turn my dreams into fantasy novels. This one wouldn't be exactly fantasy, but it certainly was fantastic...

Roomie and I were locked in a vicious competition with my mother to see who could make the best Japanese candies. Mother had laid out all of her ingredients in the shape of a person, so Vee and I just stole some of hers, because we didn't know how to make the things. When she found out she was super mad and told me to go look in her cupboard for her recipe. When I was looking through her stuff I came across all these cool little sculptures and medals from her Bible school Olympics. She had one medals for high jump, baking, and sculpture and none of us had ever known. We had a weird conversation about her past, and then Vee and her boyfriend and I boarded a plane to Japan to learn how the sculptures were made. We had a layover in Germany, so we went to the airport's mall and looked at bicycles. We ran into Little Shantzy and Mike Harris, who went to high school with me, and we wandered around attempting to speak German without pissing anyone off. We found a store selling hats and checked some out. Most of them were straw hats, which annoyed me. We found a few that were super cool and tried them on. Little Shantzy bought a captain hat. Then we were looking through this hair products boutique (it was all that göt2be brand. I guess that's all Germany is to me.) and there were a bunch of tweens in there screaming really obnoxiously, so we left. Little Shantzy and Mike left then, and Danny, Vanessa and I went to see a movie. We were sitting in the theatre goofing around and waiting for the movie to start when an usher came up to us. We had scammed a few of the footstools that were reserved for seniors and he needed a few of them. Apparently a group of 7 seniors had come in to see the film and they were running short. Then Vee blurted out "Seven? That's SO MANY!!!" and Danny and I cracked up. The usher looked shocked and took our footstools and left, and Vanessa was so embarrassed that she could barely watch the movie.
That's all I remember.

Sorry to embarrass you in my dream, buddy!

My new therapist lady gave me a Social Anxiety self-help book. Isn't that what I'm paying her for? Lame!

Older sister is visiting in 2 days. Fun times! I hope...

I slept till like noon today. It was awesome. I don't really have much to report. I've been working and reading Les Miserables and kinda generally messing around with life.

I failed my popuation ecology course. My dad wants me to switch to a different program, but there's nothing that really interests me. Suggestions are welcome...
