It's funny...it's been about a week almost since i actually wrote an entry in here that had some kind of actual substance to it. I find that if i have time to write about how well i'm doing, i'm really not doing that well. It's not to say that i was doing badly, but the fact that i haven't had time to write any real entries in about a week is a good sign.
So going to penn state for dan's birthday didnt work out. I had just gotten off the phone with him and had gotten directions. I had finally made up my mind that i was definitely going, and then i encounter some technical difficulties on the way out...and i wasnt able to go when it was all said and done. Apparently i missed a really good time, and i hope that everyone isn't upset with me...because i basically havent talked to anyone since then. I was really disappointed that i couldn't go...so i actually ended up staying in for most of friday.
Finally, i got so bored because i was alone that i went out to a party at laben's in brookwood with joe and a couple girls. I ended up spending a great deal of the night with rachel...we went to denny's until 4am and had a great time talking and stuff. Same thing happened saturday night more or less...and things have been going well. She's a great girl...a little bit taller than me, but she puts up with my sarcasm constantly, so she gets some major points for that.
So, for as much as i was looking "forward" to spending valentine's day alone...it looks like i found someone to spend it with. I was not looking forward to all the bad memories of a year ago popping back into my mind, so the timing has been perfect. We aren't together by any means...i'm definitely not ready to be in a relationship. I had too much fun last weekend to settle back down again...but at the same time, this girl is really cool. So that's that...
Let's see...classes have been goin pretty well. Definitely a lot more work than i anticipated at first...doing a lot of reading and work for my calc and legal environment of business classes. My financial accounting class is actually pretty interesting - but a lot of work. The online quizzes we take each week take forever because they are so specific. But i was definitely proud of my 17/20 i got last night on my chapter 3 quiz. Unfortunately, i have exams in all my classes but one next week...so a great deal of this weekend will be spent studying. Not many people will be around, so i'll be able to get a lot done on sunday - when i plan on spending the entire day at the library.
Work is going very well...we had our christmas party on sunday at fridays and sitting at the cool table with jane and tammy, i was served which was pretty cool. It was a good time. Then, monday was the Q12 meetings where issues are discussed between the managers, office workers and the customer service staff. It was relatively intimidating given that i was about an average of 15 years younger than everyone else. But seeing how these people will determine whether or not i'm eligible for paid internships, i figured i'd make my name known and made some pretty astute comments. I was so nervous at first and was unable to finish a sentence without gasping for air...but they all encouraged me and some even clapped at what i said, so that was a big time confidence booster. I was proud of myself.
Tonight, matt, bob, and i went to the diner with lauren to celebrate her birthday. It was arguably one of the best nights ive had this semester...matt had a pube in his eggs over easy. He also let out a childish burp that brought us all to tears of laughter. Haha, it was definitely a good time.
So the rest of the week should go by relatively well...looking forward to the weekend already even though it's only wednesday. My mom is coming up on friday for the day, so it'll be nice to see her. Also, congratulations to my brother on his acceptances to rutgers and northeastern...hopefully emerson will respond soon so he is able to go to the school of his choice...but even still, his 2 current options are very good schools. I'm really proud of you brian.
Ok, it's definitely time for bed. Hope everyone has a great second half of the week. Night everyone.
