This is all my fault...

"Downtown SLC"
I should be taking Trax more often. Uuugh, it's like I'm back in L.A.. Yes, by all accounts, there should be mountains visible in this picture.

January (1)...

was really starting to bug me. So I've decided to make it January (2). Umm...soo...stuff.
Maybe I'll do a general catch-up post for all out there. Semester's actually going to be great, I'm just not prepared for it. I've got that gut-sinky feeling of anticipation that I got the first day of high-school, when I was waiting for college acceptance papers, my mission call, waiting for the Lobster Bake and Boil 2006 ... with bacon! and other such sundry times. I'm not predicting anything huge, but it is going to be an unprecedented semester.
The class to beat (or be beaten by) this semester is Micro/Macro Economics. One Class. 6 credits. Meets everyday. ALL DAY LONG! FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE! BWAHAHAAAHAAAA! The T.A. that is going to be giving our tests every Friday is quite funny. He thinks that Econ is the most useless business course out there. It was hard to identify him, as he walked into class with a hoodie on, baggy pants, and an iPod dangling from his ears.
I've got tickets to go see Snow Patrol and OK Go! on March 5. Stoked. Although I wish it were a different venue, as general admission standing room only for the whole venue doesn't sound that cool. Whatever, dude, ok? Pppppsht, racist.
Work rules, and they really like me there (I was the only Holiday help that they hired on, telling the others that they were already over count on how many positions they had available. Sometimes hard work just pays off). But no benefits (so you're probably better off sticking with nursing, or teaching school, or being Pam 6.0. Whatever floats your boat and keeps you in the black. Or a darker shade of red. Or, perhaps, still in the red, but getting more red at a slower rate).
I just finished "The Long, Dark Tea-Time of the Soul" by Douglas Adams before school started, and just watched "Stranger Than Fiction" yesterday. I recommend both. I like Douglas Adams' books, how nothing happens without consequence and there are no coincidences. I believe that. And it was funny to see 'Buster' in a different role. And with a hand. Talking about the movie, not the book.
And, as my final thought, I have to leave now to go plan a trip to Europe. Yes, I am going to Europe, Italy specifically. Friggin' awesome. There hasn't been a Sheetz near Italy since my grandfather flew over Italy to saturation bomb the snot out of the Ploesti oil fields. I plan to be a little less destructive. And it's still a little hopeful at this point, especially with regards to the financial situation. But I think all that it means is that I won't be able to do a summer semester. Which will be nice, seeing as I've gone to school straight for the past 3 years.
So that should be everything, and now I'll promote myself to January (2) by clicking the illustrious, blatantly orange 'PUBLISH' button.
