I really need school to start

I'm all moved into my new place at school and have pretty much nothing to do. I got up at about 9am today, fed the kitties and myself, the laid down and watched TV. I was woken up at 2:30 by my friends who live down stairs...2 games of madden and a movie later and it's 8:30 and i've done about...nothing with my day

People do this their whole lives...you know, nothing. I'm not sure how they can handle it.

I'm actually looking forward to classes starting as well. Kinda boring since none of my friends are here yet. Normally work keeps me busy, but I haven't been getting too many hours lately. Oh well. Soon enough, I'll be *****ing about classes and how I'm ready for vacation.

I have about a week until school starts and I can't wait. I know my Italian isn't as strong as it should be but as soon as school starts I'll be fine. After this semester I have one more year then hopefully grad school.

Wait until you are in your 30's, married... with children, and working 13 hours a night.
Then you'll change your mind.

I know the drill, people aren't happy then. The idea is to find the middle ground

I am looking forward to school myself. I never thought it would happen, but I miss homework. I miss a dedicated time to learn.

Well, if he's not, he gets Juicy Juice, Kool-Aid, Snapple, or something else yummy. I just figured with all he's been doing lately, he deserves a treat!

Yeah, I've been up here moved into my dorm for law school for a week (orientation and all that) and I feel like tomorrow will NEVER get here! I've been doing my work, and I finished it yesterday, so today I went for a long ride, and I'm just waiting impatiently for 9:00 am tomorrow. So, I know exactly how you feel.

Get a job so you can buy more beer.

Or work on the Kucinich campaign. That would be good for some laughs.

If you girlfriend can use your ID, then you need to man up, and she needs to shave.


just saying.

I so busy I cannot get everything done before college starts tomorrow.

It has been a strange week too. I was laid off from WIU Tuesday because Illinois has not set a state budget yet. Then I get a call on Thursday asking me if I still wanted the Grad Assistantship I applied for last spring. Duh. I can't wait to see the W2 form for my tuition.
