Not too much to say. Sims 2 has devoured my soul. If I had one left to be devoured; that's a debatable point.

Got an e-mail from Mason today saying we need to have an emergency LRC meeting today at 4:30, which will hopefully fit in nicely between Academic Affairs at 4:00 and SGA at 5:00.

I got my second test back in Physical Anthropology today. Not too bad, I got a B. It could have been better, though. It was all stuff I should have known.

Took a test in Statistics of Sociology today. Wasn't too bad. With any luck, I got an A.

I got an 86 on my second test in Deviant Sociology that I took yesterday. I don't know why I didn't get an A, my brain just sort of fell out, I guess.

If my grades are like this in my *easy* classes I hate to see how I'm going to do on the Japanese mid-term next Tuesday...

I think I'm going to be able to talk to my advisor tomorrow after I get off work at 10:00 and before I go to class at 11:15, so I'll actually be able to register on the first day! As an honors student, I should have been able to do this all along, but between the school screwing me over and my past advisor screwing me over I never actually managed it before. Hopefully I didn't just jinx myself.

Off to continue playing the Sims 2 now. ^_^

I've been in an incredibly good mood all day and I have no idea why. It's actually really weird, because there's about a thousand reasons why I *shouldn't* be. When I woke up this morning I felt a little under the weather, but I felt better after I was up and around a while. I had a mid-term in my Physical Anthropology class at 9:30 AM this morning. Then in my 11:00 AM class we had a pop quiz. By the time I was going to lunch at ~12:15-ish, it was beginning to rain in earnest, and of course I didn't have an umbrella with me. I almost didn't wear a jacket which would have been very bad as I was wearing a white t-shirt today... Anyways, had lunch at FFC with Jen, then hid out in the bookstore from the rain with her for a while. I bought the Spiderman 2 soundtrack, which sounds pretty good so far. It has a Maroon 5 song I'd never heard before on it, which makes me very happy. After Jen went to class, I went to the library to attempt to look up some articles, which were MIA. I waited around for awhile then gave up on it. I was back at the dorm at about ~2:40-ish, then I took a shower. I checked my livejournal and chilled out for a few minutes, then headed off again. Went to Student Affairs committee for SGA at 4:00 PM, then went to the SGA forum on academics at 5:00 PM. When that was over, we had the actual SGA meeting which got over about ~6:15 PM. Then I went to Academic Affairs committee (also SGA), but I had to leave at about ~6:50-ish in order to make it to Japanese on time. Japanese class made about as much sense as usual (read: none), and we found out that our mid-term is probably going to be next Thursday. I also have a test next Monday and next Tuesday. The only one I'm really worried about is Japanese; I still don't really know my hiragana. After Japanese I went *back* down to DUC for the "No on the Amendment" forum. It was pretty entertaining. A few particularly rabid conservatives actually showed up and Kat did a really good job of rebutting their points without being rude about it. (In case any of those reading this have *no* idea what I'm going on about with the whole Amendment thing - there is going to be a proposed constitutional amendment on the Kentucky ballot this election day which, in addition to defining marriage as one man and one woman, will also ban any kind of civil union or common law marriage even for straight couples. The effects would be far-reaching and drastic.)
Anyway, after we finally made it out of the forum (I'm going to help with the campaign Thursday afternoon, and Saturday morning Jen and I are going to go canvass houses and talk about the amendment. Should be quite interesting.), being as I hadn't managed to hunt down dinner during all of the stuff I'd been doing all evening, I went to RedZone with Jen and Skylar. We sat and ate and talked and stuff, and I didn't end up heading back to the dorm until after 11:00... I've had a very full day. I'm looking forward to the fact that all I have going on tomorrow is work, one class, one committee meeting, and the DebateWatch (I heard it was moved to Diddle - should be fun regardless.). Sad when that seems like a relief. Still, it's like nothing has been able to touch my good mood all day. *happiness* (Wow, that was like - crazy update-ness) I guess I'll go to bed now. Night all!

I love quizzes. I totally snagged this one from [livejournal.com profile] greensub64. I have to run away now for SGA, SGA, and more SGA, followed by class and then the "No on the Amendment" forum. Hopefully I will find time for dinner somewhere in there.

Moderation in all things, excess in nothing.
-- Epicurus

Imagine that the Girl Next Door moved to the big city. Think of Meg Ryan in When Harry Met Sally. She's America's sweetheart with an urban sensibility. She's a post-Christian spiritualist, a pre-Monica Clintonite, and a dues-paying member of at least one social-change organization like NOW, Planned Parenthood, or the Sierra Club. You won't find her at an Earth First or PETA meeting, though. Those are the Granola Girl's stomping grounds. Progressive Girls want the world to be a better place, but they live out their politics in a moderate, left-of-center way.

If you are going to date a Progressive Girl, the one sin you can commit is to be a chameleon. Molding your opinions to fit hers will lose her respect. One very positive thing you can do is offer her new experiences -- the Progressive Girl is fearless about trying new things. Whether it's pluralism, skydiving, Asian peanut sauce, or this book, the Progressive Girl is always looking for new ideas.

She Might Be a Progressive Girl if:

She drives: a small SUV but really wishes it got better mileage; once she can get a good hybrid, she will.
She can talk for more than ten minutes about: just about anything.
She begins her sentences with: "Susan Sarandon says..."
She'd never: pass up the chance for a new experience.
She owns any of the following: a water filter, a tabletop fountain, an acre of rain forest, a mutt from the pound.

I'm not usually this 'blah' am I? What's wrong with me? Today sucked muchly... Woke up, showered, went to work, went to class, went to other class and did horribly on Deviant Sociology test, went to lunch, studied for Geology test for an hour and a half, went to lab and did pretty bad on Geology test considering I had just studied for it for an hour and a half, then I went back to the dorm at about 5. At that point I was like, where did my day go? Jen was MIA, so I went up to Kristin & Laura's room (that's where she was) and just sort of died there for about an hour or so until we went down to DUC, wandered around the bookstore for a while, then went to dinner. Got back to the dorm and actually checked my e-mail for the first time all day. I think that's a record, me-going all day without getting on the computer when there was one available... So I've been chilling out (metaphorically chilling out, that is, the air-conditioning in Rodes *still* isn't fixed) checking my e-mail, LJ, etc. I finally ordered Gravitation: Disc 4, which makes me somewhat happy, but even that couldn't drag me completely out of my funk...
But do you know what did brighten my day? This embarassing pic of [livejournal.com profile] abercrombie_boi. Hooray for the SGA retreat! There's also a good one of Rob and a good one of Tim, being held by Mark(The IT guy, is that his name?).

You're a Winter. You very much enjoy your time
alone but do like other people's company
sometimes. You just need your space. You have a
few priviledged friends who saw past your
colder exterior to find the true you. You can
have pretty bad mood swings (though you hate to
admit it) so you could be soft one second then
storming around the next! But over all, you're
a very pleasant person once people take the
time to get to know you. You're a good friend
for in-depth talks. You're very talanted when
it comes to creative things.

What season are you? (pics)

(Katie, as if it weren't weird enough that we share a name and an astrological sign, have you noticed that we *keep* getting the same results on nearly every quiz... it's really kinda strange... I promise I'm not doing it on purpose.)

In other news, my dad's in town this weekend to see my brother's play. So like, half an hour after I got back to the dorm from the SGA retreat, he calls and so I went to hang out with him. It was cool though, I got a new outfit that's quite nice and we went to Red Lobster. Did you know that the sugar packets at the tables in Red Lobster have stupid jokes on the back? They're all puns about fish. It's really quite sad, but it amused me at least.

Why is Jen yelling at the Super Nintendo again? I can't complain, though, because I'm just as bad... if not worse.

This has been the *longest* day, fun mostly, just really, really long.

Random thought... I love to buy books, so why don't I ever get around to reading most of them? I was watching something on tv and it reminded me that I actually bought Bill Clinton's book and I haven't even started reading it yet. This is far from an isolated incident; I do it all the time. I think I'll blame college for taking up too much of my leisure time.

*yawn* Night all...

I'm going on the Student Government fall retreat tonight and I'll be back some time tomorrow, but probably won't really be around the rest of the weekend either because my Dad's coming in to town tonight. Plus I should go see Mikey's play at some point. This weekend is going to be very busy, especially since somewhere in all the mess of family and other obligations I have to study for two tests on Monday... Blegh.
